Part of a huge complex of underground tunnels and caverns, Svartalfaheimr is the capital city of the deep dwellers, and my largest underground structure (so far!).

The main chamber is around 200 blocks long, 140 blocks wide, and 50 blocks high, though there are also suburbs sprawling though several large caverns, plus several tunneled streets. The whole city sits atop a sea of lava, which also spreads into the neighbouring caverns.

So far the project has taken me 2 months to dig/build using creative mode (plus a little McEdit only to dig some of the larger chambers).

Texture Pack: John Smith v8.1

UPDATE 22-Nov-2011: Completed!

I have now included a world save for you to explore. The zip also includes the texture pack I use. Enjoy! :-)

Additional Notes

Credit to Mythallar for help with some digging and construction. Thanks dude!

It's the same world save as the two are connected. The spawn point should put you at the entrance of Svartalfaheimr, and next to the stairs to the Palace.

mind blowingly incredible, a true work of minecraft art. amazing that it took you two months of digging and basic, I would just make a sample model for the room setup and copy+paste that into everything using MCEdit. can't wait for finish!

One question, how did you get so much space underground?

If you still have just a huge empty cavern as a world save, could you post it?

The main chamber has 6 square sections, the first of which I dug out by hand. The other 5 I used McEdit to delete blocks. The natural cave bits were all dug out by hand, using existing caves as a guide.

Why the Sweedish name? This reminds me of Moria :D

I can't deny that the underground complex to which this is a part is heavily inspired by Moria and the Mithril Halls from the Drizzt books. Most of the higher levels are clean and civilised with lots of big impressive chambers, while underneath there are lots of rougher winding tunnels that are extremely easy to get lost in.
