Hello, Ryer here!

Welcome to Elysium.

Almost a sister project to my arcology, as both will be expanded and maybe even merged into the same build someday. The shape was something difficult, but I am quite pleased with it. Also, this is the first time ever that I have been satisfied with my interiors, even if they don't fit the exteriors. It is a 14 pointed star, with 72 faces. Every single one of those faces are decorated. Something new went into this build, and you may have already noticed it... I did landscaping! I made a fairly small and somewhat detailed terrain to go along with this. Hopefully you like this, and have fun exploring it. Also... it is not a spaceship, spacestation, or space thing of any kind... Enjoy!

Build done on the IAS Server. (I have been frequenting the server lately)

Thanks to Barbarian for the last render, it came out very nice.

And now, as it was discovered, the build was a reference to a stratovarius album from 2011, also named Elysium... but in particular, the Title Track, A 20 minute monster that happens to be one of the best written songs I have ever heard.

Its quite nice honestly. Nobody does skyscrapers quite like what I do anymore, and a build like this is incredibly rare. That's why I do it, as I try to give people something nobody else is offering.

I can definitely see this being quite difficult to build. Looks great, and very unique. And the source material (scrolled down, saw the comment haha) is very interesting. I'll look into the album :) Keep it up, buddy.

I am honestly incredibly glad I was able to get the shape somewhat correct. I am glad you think that this turned out well. I will admit, if you haven't looked into it yet, to simply listen to the main song. (You will know which one that is based on the name... and length of it. (18 minutes long) That is... if you have the time. If you don't mind the style, a style an absolute ton of people hate it is a great listen.

I am glad you like this. Impossible to build? Maybe, with current materials and technologies. Impossible forever? not necessarily, you never know. It does look strange, you dont see 14 point stars everywhere. I am glad you like this style and the build I have morphed it into. :)

This wouldn't happen to be a reference to the stratovarius album of the same name would it?

Ahh! Someone did it! I wanted to see if anybody got the reference, and finding that out was originally why I built it. Elysium as an album I think is really quite good, but the title song just sticks out at me as one of the best songs I have ever heard. The shape on the album cover, which I replicated here (different designs on the faces but hey... I cant just do a copy) was a 14 pointed star, and it took me way to long to figure out exactly how it was made and what it was. In the process I found out it was called "The Polaris" (I assume after another album). Eventually I worked it out, and did a few calculations to find various vertices. You will notice I tired to replicate the font of the title on the cover image, going as far as to edit the font itself so the "E" would have the same curls

I did not know how long, if ever, it would take people to see the connection. I am glad somebody did end up getting it :)

You would not believe how surprised I am to see another Stratovarius fan here.

But yeah, Elysium is a beast of a song, and it is named after another album.

I have heard of Polaris and made the connection a while ago to the covers. I also am surprised, they don't seem to be all that famous outside of maybe a few select songs. (Black Diamond, Hunting High and Low, etc...)

I honestly have to admit I have never listened to the entirety of Polaris, I heard Elysium was basically a better version and started there. xD

Polaris is one of their less popular albums, it's not really as good, but the cover art is on point. Not many people have actually listened to it.

some parts you can add to this is a breakroom or a bathroom, both necessary things needed for an office.

There is sort of a semi breakroom on a few floors :P

As for a bathroom, maybe. Its hard to find space.

Awesome made but shame on you for not putting up any screenshot/renders/pictures of the interior you made, it looks pretty good. I do miss personal rooms or houses it's just one big office. Also not all the pointy things are filled.

Nevertheless well made!
