Level 52 : Grandmaster Terraformer
Hello, PMC!
First off, I would like to apologize for my long inactivity. Even after passing Level 50 here, I still didn't bother to submit anything for the people who keep up with my work. Thankfully for my increasingly guilty conscience, I now have something to share. It's rather different from the many maps that I'd been almost exclusively posting for a long time. My latest PMC creation is a real-life Chinese pagoda.

Liaodi Pagoda is located in Dingzhou City, Hebei Province, China. It was constructed during the Song Dynasty in 1055. At the time, it was part of a monastery complex, but also had a secondary purpose as a watchtower to observe any raiding parties sent by the rival Liao Dynasty to the north. The monastery no longer exists, but the pagoda still stands. The reason that I selected it for recreation is that this particular brick pagoda is the tallest remaining pre-modern pagoda in China. Beyond that, I found it's rather dramatic tapering shape appealing. My recreation, like the real version stands 84 meters tall and has 11 stories. I have replicated the exterior to the best of my abilities, and placed the pagoda in a park-like area loosely based on the real park that it is located in in Dingzhou City. Because I could not find any pictures of the interior, I have mostly left it empty, apart from the vaulted brick and painted wooden ceilings that were mentioned in some accounts. Here is the Wikipedia article if I missed anything.

Disclaimer: This build requires the 1.12.2 version of the Conquest Reforged mod to function. It is absolutely essential; the map will not load properly without it!

I intend to be somewhat more active going forward than I have been in the past few months. I hope that you enjoy my recreation of this historic pagoda.
