Amazing! I am currently working on an interior of this palace for Minecraft mega bases, for factions, multiplayer, or even single player! I am making all kinds of utility and entertainment rooms, so if you guys want to check it out, i would be happy to see you all there! I started it 4 days ago, so it's probably gonna take some 3-6 months. When I reach 50% I am going to post a half-way done version, so tune up!

The interior will not be for 3 reasons:
- No one knows what the Potala looks like inside (tourists are not allowed there except for 1 hall)
- The interior will be monotonous and ugly, because there will be just a series of rooms.
- I am not an interior designer, but an exterior architect. I see no reason to spend a lot of time on the interior. This project positions itself as an architecturally colorful solution, and not a house for living)
