The Islands were unmoved and are kept the same size since I thought that we should learn to appreciate what is given and build with it. Increasing the size or moving the islands would be like using flatlands, whats the point? (personal opinion)

After Steve won lots and lots of money from the casino. He decided to venture off with his money and travel around the minecraft universe. It look him many many years to escape the plain deserts and grasslands but one day, he arrived at something that no minecraftian has ever seen before. Floating islands. They were legends, dreamt by many. Steve has found it and he was extremely surprised. He decided to invest into these islands to make it a wonderful tourist attraction so that he can earn even more money!





Steve hired PixelatorJ and his crew to build this resort.
Here are the hightlights:
Since Steve wanted to build something monumental and something that acts as a tourist attraction. We have decided to build something very all and slim to exaggerate the verticality of the creation and emphasise the hight these islands are above ground.
The Large Base acts as a gathering place so that people (tourists) can meet and interact.
Spiral lightings on the stem (main pillar) of the tower to fit in to the pattern on the base of the islands.
Grass areas in the podium to allow less carbon footprint and allow plantation.
The roof has two sections. One is the main deck. It is where the tourists can look out and enjoy the stunning view of the floating islands. The four decks are not connected in the outside so that people would be more concentrated in the middle of that floor, allowing more interaction and better security.
Most of the trees are maintains since the horizontal area that the tower takes up is minimal. The god tree on the island is also kept in the same place.
Access to the island has been decided to be Magical Portals. This mean of travel although a little more expensive, allows minimal harm done to the environment since airships create noises and are frequently crashing near the tower due to the nature of these islands.



Story (The Myth):
The Argonian Citadel of Denarashus - Taken back by nature after the battle of sauvignol 20,000 eons ago, spirits of the dead warriors who were denied access to their after-life for the killings they commited still inhabit the islands around the citadel and those who go close are never heard from again. The citadel was built by the Dwarves, it was especially situated ontop of the highlands rich in radioactive rare minerals. They harnessed the power to a point that they could power whole towns with the ore they obtained. It wasno t o till the Marakel warlords heard about the power of the minerals and they invaded the Dwarven highlands. The build features a great tower as a outlook at archery post that could see the lands around it. The main weapon against the invading Marakesh warriors was the ionic beam. This was situated ontop of the citadel and was as well powered by the radioactive minerals. They however could not fire it in time for it to charge as the Marakesh warriors snuck in through the densely packed forrest.
(It was discovered by humans long after and today, it serves as a monument for the war and a popular tourist attraction.) ~~

They aren't FyreUK the real one on planet minecraft is just called OfficialFyreUK and they are on a high level not on level 1...I think they are just a scam trying to get money from people! They should be reported!

and let's just say this is the real FyreUK on planet minecraft...
