Hello, Ryer here,

  So, as a predominant skyscraper builder, I have been looking for ways to break the biggest limitation this game has... the height limit. Here is Skymile Tower, a 1:1 recreation of a proposal in Tokyo Bay in Japan. Technically I built about half of the full project, called Next Tokyo 2045 (I stopped mostly because it was already far too large). Overall, the project is 1,706 blocks tall, and about 7000 blocks long. 11 of the buildings within the project break the 256 block threshold, with the second tallest being over 750 blocks tall. Overall, this was a really fun project to build. I hope you all enjoy this one.

Information on Next Tokyo 2045 and Skymile Tower

Note for the download: The project is split into two world files. The first file, "Skymile Tower" is the main project file. "Skymile Stacks" contains the pieces of the project that are taller than 250 meters, split into 250 meter sections. Both worlds require that you use the Blueprint Resource Pack.

Special thanks to the members of the Blueprint Creative Server, particularly Steve for helping with various aspects of this project. Also thanks to both SirFinnigan and West for testing the waters with this method of building tall.

The build itself was made in 250 block sections. Later, in a render, the sections were stacked on top of each other to make it 1,700 blocks tall. There are 7 sections in total.

Wow... Incredible... I definitely want to pick your mind and see how you built this project ito. Great job. Definitely something that just had to bring me out of my hermitage

Frankly... I sort of made the frame, which was tedious but I eventually got it... after that I just sort of powered through the tower, then I made some simple hexagons and I kept making more and more until I couldn't render it anymore.

Overall, it wasn't particularly difficult... it just took time.

I can imagine. I know to build to this scale is tedious but pays off. In my days of building i only had 230 blocks to build up, seeing 1700+ is impressive and all the details help make the project shine
Wow this is incredible. I congratulate you on such a great achievement.

Eye Catchingly Spectacular! Just can't stop looking at it! It reminds me a little of Stargate Atlantis

Glad you like it!
This is by far one of the most incredible builds on the server! It was amazing to watch you build each hexagon and tower. Glad to have helped with this (even though I took longer than I should of to finish one of the hexagons :P).
P.S. The renders are truly eye candy.

I was thankful for your help, even if I was able to build most of the rest of it in the time it took you to do the one simple job. Your support was irreplaceable.
no problem ;)

I can see this took a lot of time to make. A very elegant payoff.
