This is an Ocean-Scraper design I wanted to transfer into Minecraft. I drafted this up a while ago, modeled after 'hO2+ Scraper'.

I wanted to take a real structure, designed for Ocean 'off-grid' living. So far none are actually made. This design was placed on hold in 2008 when the world economy buckled. Enclosed is pics of the Ocean-Scraper and also the Concept art.

Lower levels are un-walled, no level is furnished as this is a structure for lease... (As if a contractor built it).

I am working on submarine docks and crescent shaped structures to flank this structure at the cardinals. Observation tunnels for sea Floor Exploration. And also a Texture Pack to make the colored wool 'change' to look like different wallpapers or 'drywall' finished. Also the most important part, is the Boyancy/Ballast region with will be mounted to the underside of the currently displayed Ocean-Scraper.

Notice: The project was inspired by hO2+ scraper
Search: eVolo Skyscraper Completion for more info on the real thing

Additional Notes

Technical build FYI: There is not a quick way to array down levels AND have them different sizes (next floor slightly smaller than the previous.) I had to draw the outline of every floor and mid floor (windows/doors/walls) by hand. If your view the shape from above, I was going for a 'Ying-Yang' look, mix of nature and Refinement. This structure is best appreciated in a world where water in the majority by 80% or more. Deep Oceans are needed to properly float the structure. I suggest at least

I used a combination of Structure builder MCEdit Minecraft, and Single Player Commands mod. edit in one, save and then edit in another. Repeat for every floor.

The World Save posted is not my own creation, and is WITHOUT the Ocean-Scraper.

spent approximately: 60-70hrs of build time... so far. the B%#^h is in the details.

I am not familiar with the MO CREATURES mod, how would that help. Keep in mind one creeper inside the ocean-scraper, and the life loss could be very high with decompressing chambers.

I already tested one stick of TNT in one of the mid levels and in the center it removes all the stairs, on the end it destroys 2 to 3 levels of exterior glass and floor, the water rushes in in seconds. The titanic had a better chance.

I forgot, you will have to add water to the top floor river coming out of the forest area. I would suggest making sure there are no leaks as it is meant to spill through a tube that passes through some lower levels. I did not finish this part, because in some areas it will open up into a bar aquarium and other trick features.
