To start the new year off with a bang this is my 1:1 scale speculative reconstruction of the great imperial baths of Diocletian the largest of the 5 great baths in rome and the largest bathhouse to ever exist in ancient rome and the empire as a whole. This was a joint project between me hherlev, j8054 and shj1991 to take on this massive project lasting 6 months (6-05-20 to 1-2-21). The baths were actually commissioned by emperor Maximian to honor his co emperor diocletian during the triumverent period and were constructed between 298 AD to 306 AD. These baths became the largest and most ornate roman bath ever constructed even housing its own temple.
The temple was dedicated to gentis flaviae and was leftover from a previous complex that the baths were built on top of since it had been freshly remodeled and why tear down a perfectly good temple?The baths remained in use until 537 when during the ostrogoth seige of rome the aquaducts were cut and rendered the baths useless. in the 16th century the remains of the baths were converted into the basilica santa maria degli angeli by Michelangelo and remains to this day.

you can also see these baths on hherlevs server https://www.planetminecraft.com/project/imperial-city-of-ancient-rome/

Incredible build, I'm going to enjoy exploring this. I'm curious though, why do you play on version 1.12 instead of 1.16?
