Is there a way to increase the MAX build height? I want it to be like 800+ for me to build a space station.

I have an old flat world (from before options where added to the flat worlds) in which I'm building my first cathedral, but I've stumbled upon a problem. In the world I'm building in (which is an old flat world consisting of 1 bedrock, 2 dirt and 1 grass and therefore 300 blocks from the void to max building height), My cathedral has hit the height of 256 blocks (the two highest front towers) but the cathedrals final height is even higher + I need to add a base to the cathedral on which it'll stand, which in the end will give it a max height og about 450-550 blocks/meters. Is there anyway to increase that in Vanilla Minecraft (I'm not all too happy for mods, since they can cause lag) I can probably use MC Edit and copy paste the whole thing into a height increased world, but it'll be pretty hard, since the whole thing is more than 500 blocks long and more than 300 blocks wide in total, so it's a pretty big cathedral

If you want an idea of it's height, width and length, then here's a link to it's PMC page:

Why don't you just create an empty world? I mean if you increase the height to 660000000 everything will still be the same. It will just make some map corruption.

((The only way to increase it is by using a server))

there USE to be a mod that would allow you to have custom world height not sure if it still exists or not though and I cannot remember its name . If you find it be very very careful though as it will be extremely hard on your computer with the normal world gen settings there are 65536 blocks per chunk if you increase it by another 128 blocks high it would bring up the block total to 99304 and so on.

Back when I used the mod before setting it at 512 build height I went from 250 fps with vanilla to about 90 with that mod on.

I looked into this the other day, as far as I'm aware you can't change the block height limit above 256. What you can do is create a void world which will give you the full height to work with. Look up a tutorial on YouTube on how to do this.

As far as I've heard, not without causing a bunch of problems.
