My high school art teacher had always told me to know the rules before you break them. So when someone told me that the Minecraft height limit was 256 blocks high, I said "cool," and submitted to that rule for 5 years.

Over those five years there is no doubt that I have throughly learned this rule. It has crushed my dreams far too many times. So when I accidentally started making the facade of Germany's famous Schloss Drachenburg way too large, I wasn't going to let it stop me.

So here we are, 571 blocks tall and 8 months later. I introduce my replica of the stunning Dragon Castle.

Its been a while since I've last seen a public thing by you guys. It's good to see you appear to have found a style that both defines you and fits the general trend going on right now.

Amazing work Cheesey!
How did you manage making it 571 Blocks tall?
It's built in three layers stacked on top of each in Cinema 4D! You can download the world at teleport yourself to the coordinates 0,0 to see for yourself.
Ah i understand i thought it was some sort of mod.. or a update i have no idea of .. well then alright

IIRC there is actually a mod that allows you to set the build height limit ;) over 256 blocks

aaand... a second pure vanila MC option would be, as long the build does not takes more than 256 blocks in width, the builder could simply flip his point of view and build the structure flipped :)

thus the X & Z coords would become the X & Y coords, according to MC coord tagging, not sure if you get what I mean :)
