This is the second structure I have built in this series. It was designed around different principles than the fortress. I am using more, but smaller rock spires, and building most of the structure out from them and between them rather than primarily tunneling rooms out of the rock. The effect is a much more open plan, including an exterior stairwell connecting most of the levels. There are a fair number of design elements borrowed from offshore drilling rigs, particularly the helipad-like landing area.

A few features to note are the large bridge deck between the lighthouse and the main workshop. The lighthouse island has stacked porches and an underslung water reservoir. You can see the pipes from it running back to the main island.

The main island has a large warehouse/greenhouse along with crew quarters, a big mess hall, an overseer's office, and indoor and outdoor bathing areas.

The wrecked ship was designed to look like it was slowly being integrated into a permanent part of the island. I took the Cruiser schematic and started punching holes everywhere and then went back and partially filled them with other materials. It would be nice if there was different type of wood planks to use to make it look older, but I am pretty happy with the result.

Nice video tour by a French group, although I wish they hadn't used the default texture pack: www.livestream.com/andaroth/video?clipId=pla_42947e18-7d8f-4a69-b830-fdb0ea5ab702
CreditTexture pack is Dokucraft (Light) by Doku.

This is an awesome build very detailed and it looks pretty realistic even on default texture.

Mind if I complete this bad boy? Also yes I intend on redoing a large portion of it with new blocks. Also wood is not going to work for what I want to do. Kind of cant have lava lighting and large smelters with huge vats of lava if its wood can you?

True though using new blocks will change it allot. But for me not an issue I intend on changing allot. Not sure much of the original will remain though lol.

Sort of. It is more something I would have wanted when I was building these. Now the idea of going back and redoing everything with the new blocks seems like too much work. This is always the problem I have with new blocks. They make new construction more fun, but I don't like incorporating them into existing work when they have the potential to change everything so much. I will have to think about it.
