This is Meester_Curly back again for another project. I welcome you to the realms of Hydrata, my Head into the Clouds contest entry and probably my biggest build to date and also my favourite. I built it over the period of two weeks and 50 hours. Due to me being unorganised and leaving this to the last minute, I had to get friends to help me with houses and paths. Without them this project would not have been possible to upload at this time. Although I had help from friends, this is still not as big as I planned it to be, 95% was built by myself, and due to this I have put a lot of hard work into making this possible. Please do explore this world first hand by downloading the world, I have spent a lot of time making it presentable for the download so it would be a shame if no-one were to see it. The details have been made to look better in person, so I encourage you to have a look for yourself. This project was completed 3 hours before the end of the contest, so it was certainly a tight squeeze!

Lore:
As the Sun Spot cycles became stronger, the Earth's temperature had increased and consequently water started to evaporate and never condense. Volcanoes started to form and soon that was all there was left on the surface. A select few scientists migrated to Mordata island, the most habitable of the 3. These islands were the last of the remaining debris after the Yellowstone volcano erupted. High up in the sky, above the clouds, where the heat from the volcanoes and magma cannot reach. Oxygen is thriving up there, the air is light and fresh, its cool enough for water to condense, so rivers are not a rare landform. The scientists have made the most out of this and created a dam to produce electricity for the city. However this river is different, as they migrated to this island, they found the remaining head of the Tian Tan Buddha statue, which coincidently spouted out an eternal flow of water. The scientists saw this as a great opportunity to make a dam, so that's what they did. 40 years later and it has been renamed Hydrata - The city of water.
