I've been working on this attempt of Moria since late summer 2012 after my son get me interested in it. I've no intention of limiting the size so have just used my Engineering experience & Tolkien interest to create a realm that will do Moria justice.

It is being built by hand without any mods although using creative mode but with just myself building. My son has dabbled here and there on occasion :)

Mountain containing the core of Moria was built to world height from scratch with Durin's Tower on the top. The endless stair goes from there to world bottom. Most of the ongoing development will be underground with occasional parts on surface. At spawn zone are several experimental structures such as Barad-Dur built to world height, wife & son's houses, nether portal. All areas linked by double track railway via either the mainline loop or via interchange stations.

Ironforge "ring" & columns complete with roof structural detail now added. Walkways on 2 levels around whole chamber with bridges & stairs criss-crossing the ring at various levels to reach all the homes. Accommodation can now be added based on these levels with lots of potential.
Planning to extend height of Moria & add mountain to cover Ironforge to look more like a mountain range.

Always open to suggestions for features, structures to incorporate into the built. Drop in a comment & I'll put my imagination to good use ;)

Updated map 3rd February 2024. Still building mountain over Ironforge. My OCD is making it take a lot longer than I'd hoped. You can't rush perfection though

Latest updated uploaded. Lots of hard to find improvements in preparation for future upper & lower expansion.
Main Ironforge chamber now with 2 balconies & access bridges all around. Roof structural detail added with walkway and/or railway potential inside.
Expansion of Moria Great Hall planned to interface better with Ironforge, adding sand edging around whole Moria/Ironforge complex to allow draining of water inside for underground expansion.

Latest map now uploaded. Hard to choose decent images to show in the gallery to best show the build.
Considering doing a "fly-through" to post but not done one before. Might give you all a better appreciate of the scale of it all

Main Ironforge are now fully covered. Whole are is nice & dark, adding the the Dwarven ambience.
Planning to start plotting out boundaries & layouts of rooms now to get the scale of it right.
I'll try & at least add many visible facades over Christmas

Great forge & commons area covered over. Going to complete Ironforge walls & roof before adding more detail.
Intention is to be more on the scale of Beta Ironforge

Finally getting around to working on my tribute to Ironforge after 7 years. See new screenshot for base layout & the significant scale I'm working on. Image is taken from the roof of the great hall in Moria. When the main structure is complete, I'll build a mountain over it to blend in with Moria

I've no idea. Needs more publicity!! :) I'm in the process of moving house soon so updates will be sporadic until I'm settled. I've some huge updates on the go though with the main one being the Ironforge inspired great forge building next to the 21st hall. I've been designing the layout on AutoCAD so I can get it as design perfect as possible. I did get my figures wrong for the foundation though and it ended up being twice the diameter I had planned at 370 blocks across.
