Beautiful building, it's quite a shame that Minecraft has a height limit. For that, I created a petition to increase the world height limit. I would like to ask your help in sharing this petition so Mojang will hear us, Minecraft builders.

Awesome, dude!  You can actually try flipping it on it's side and then just rotate the images of it.  I've seen similar things done before.  ;)

you should render both parts of the building so that the FOVs line up and you can photoshop them together to look like one peice, would help a lot with visuals

That's a pity because it looks good to me. Wish you could have built it in one piece :/ but diamond anyways.

Yeah the building is 443 blocks tall & the height limit only allowed for 250 blocks
so I had to build the rest next to it, It's a pretty big building.

I imagine the height limit stopped him from building the entire thing
