After a full month of building from the three top builders on the NSW server for BuildTheEarth Oceania, we've completed 3 blocks side by side.

This plot is situated just on the edge of Circular Quay and The Rocks in Sydney Australia.

Block details and accreditations
The Grosvenor Place building (the thick oval-shaped one) is relatively new and shows off fantastic modern within Sydney. HMAS_Lightning spent a large amount of time detailing the lobby area of that building and his hard work has paid off in this stunning tower.

The middle building was completed by Arizona, it shows off some spectacular roof detailing from a master in his area of expertise. The change in elevations across the build wouldn't have been an easy task - but he made it look easy.

ToKnowTheTruth (or just Truth) built all the street-level trees on the block, this block would not be as nearly green as it is now without him.

The shortest building on the highest side was completed by myself and is made up of an expansive apartment complex combined with a gym and small terraced housing on the far side. The roofing detail was especially complex compared to the other builds but came out quite nicely.

This build-plot was done as an event on our server between NSW, VIC, NZ, and QLD and we were all given a time limit of 1 month to complete a section. This event was judged by other respected builders in the BuildTheEarth community and we received 72/90 (just 4.5 points short of beating the winning team 😞.)
You can see the winning teams build on the Victorian sub-server by typing /vic.

If you feel like seeing the build "in-person" you can join the server we have hosted for building the whole of NSW at a 1:1 scale. The server is hosted on version 1.12.2 - 1.16.2.
IP Address: hub.bteoce.com and then use /nsw
The server uses the CubicChunks mod to help us create buildings taller than 255 metres tall

Although you can still join without installing this mod due to some trickery thanks to our hardworking technicians... if you want the full experience with some reduced lag you might want to consider downloading and installing the BTE mod-pack.
You can find the download for the mod-pack on the BuildTheEarth website.

This build was completed by
- Tomato
- HMAS_Lightning
- Arizona
- ToKnowTheTruth
