Level 28 : Expert Engineer
90
On a secluded stony island in the middle of the ocean, and immense mining operation is taking place toextract resources to build an empire. These exctracted rescources are melted down and kept in a huge cavern as lava. Using the hearts of past dragons Steve built colossal mining lasers and bases that fly around or anchor on mountains to bore down a mysterious unbreachable layer of odd, almost smoking matter, which he dubbed bedrock! These flying mining lasers use the power of steam to drive the rotors keeping them in the air, whilst the dragon hearts power the impressive lasers that vaporize the stone underneath them. To be caught and condensed into lava in the cavern.

Huge coal furnaces create the steam needed for the anchored stations, moved into position by huge airship claws, while mini furnaces inside the flying lasers are built to perfection, with no error margin allowed. In one area of the island, broken lasers and engines can be seen, thrown away by Steve's lust for utter perfection in everything he does. This pile is a bank of ideas past that never cut it to have his full attention whilst being built, or simply did not work.

Kirtan comes from the name of the dragon that Steve met, that flew him to the island to honour what the courteous dragon gave to the operation: a place of operation and the heart to the largest of the mining lasers. Thus the name Kirtan Mining Operation, in honour of the sacrifices the dragon was forced to make.

Steve has also found a passion for deep sea exploration (he has to do something to release the steam, right?) so has made himself a trusty submarine that is moored to the airship/balloon dock (being held up by an airship).

MrSkee is helping me with this project, so credit to him too!

enjoy!

Unfortunately, the contest now notices build teams more as they can build lots! In the last build contest, the highest ranked single-player builder was 4th (or 5th).
For a team of only two, this is an amazing build, of near quality to a build team!
You should go far with this build. I wish you luck! :)
PS: I am wondering if you could check out My Contest Entry. I would love professional feedback such as yours. :)

Wow, I remember when you first started this project; it was just one small mining rig. Now, it has become something truly impressive.

I would give it a diamond, but I already have (I was one of the first people to do so).

Very nice detailed airships but I think the grey landscape makes it look a bit drab.  Adding some vegetation and water would make it look more appealing.
