This city was made as requested by the guys on Mystic Realms. They asked me if I could build a city that was a cross between Mount Olympus and Minas Tirith.

The islands are meant to be highly fertile land. With an abundance of growth. Yet clean, light and fluffy. The islands just slightly pop up through the clouds, and make a mist over the water. There is a high percentage of birch trees, with the regular kind only being massive. The birch leaf is a lot lighter than the regular. But I still included the regular to balance out all the light colours. And give that clean forest feel. It also gives it an added magical affect.

With the edging I was going for the "cloud" affect. So it is true to it's irregular pattern yet holds that spherical shape. Holes in the edging allows water to stream down. Kind of simulating rain.

The central building was designed to be mainly Greek. With the base representing the rock-like formation found within Minas Tirith. Arches where added to the base for more detail and to give an added Greek feel. The multiple aqueducts have been made to give a Minas Tirith affect, where by everything is stacked up on top of each other. The spikes on the central dome are to draw the eye to the magic ring above. Which balances out all the blue water from being overwhelming.

I will be posting a video shortly so you can get a more in-depth perspective on the build itself. There are 4 floating islands around the central structure which are ready for development :D

They basic Dimensions are roughly 300 by 300 by 120.
