Working from hundreds of photos and the original plans of Gustave Eiffel, I have been able to recreate the Eiffel Tower almost exactly. Because of it's height, I hit the world limit and will have to build the rest on the side. The pillars under the first floor and second floor are close to being completed. The first floor is basically done, but I might add the pavilions that were added during the recent renovation. For a comparison, see google images. I have made every effort to be as accurate as possible. Every aspect was planned out and built according to how it actually looks.
The tower resides on a computer-generated pixel art of the champ de mars and trocadéro area, whict is being meticulously recreated too.

Thanks to Wikimedia for their hi-res images of original plans and Google Earth for the vast database of photos. This wouldn't be possible without either.

Some photos show the texture pack "Lively Default"

The Pont d'Iéna and the surrounding area on both sides are nearing completion. Some trees but not much else. Progress on the paths and lakes adjacent to the tower is coming along well. Finished the top floor, complete with antenna. Palais de Chaillot/Trocédero area is really taking shape despite complicated curves and land grading.
If you know of a good mod that will raise the world height without risk to my worlds, please tell me! thanks.

No new progress, just an update about the status of this project is case you are curious:
No, this has not been abandoned. I have had lots of other things to work on recently, and have put this on hold. I have now finished everything else I had started except Notre Dame, which I have gotten around to working on again. Once that is complete (which will take some time) I will restart work on this. Hopefully it will be done in a few years.
