The Dawn of Helios





Lore:



A magnificent structure built to organize and maintain the duties of the gods, a council to keep the world in balance. The Dawn of Helios stands vast and strong, taller than any mountain before it. Surrounded by glorious peaks, and the glistening shine of the ocean, Helios was built on the legendary island of Alacris. A place well known among men for its eternal beauty and architecture. built from the ashes of dragons, forming a hard polished surface and reflection in the heat of the sun. Helios has stood for thousands of years, and will continue to stand throughout the glory of the human race, polishing their needs and rewarding the righteous.





Information:



So I basically started this project at the beginning of the contest, spent about 3 days on it, expanding and detailing and suddenly lost interest quite rapidly. I was also interrupted by three random weekend campings trips cutting my time quite short on this project, I realized the other day that I should prolly get my shiet together and publish this project, reassuring myself Im not wasting my life on this god forsaken game. so basically last minute (well technically it was more like the last 24 hours) I whipped up some spunky massive terrain to showcase the build and added some finishing touches. If I had given myself more time I would have done a lovely interior, as I left lots of room for it.

"One wall to rule them all"



Some tools used in this project:



-Worldedit



-Voxelsniper



-Worldpainter



-MCEdit



The building itself is some 550x250 and ever so close to touching the height limit. The terrain is an estimated 2kx3k. Takes ages to see it all. Lots of room to explore and would be glorious for survival.





Credit:



Id like to thank the Pandora's Blocks team for supporting the construction of this build, also huuuge shout out to nb1assassin who was a large help in throwing together some last minute renders.


If you're one of those kids who are like TL;DR, heres a quick summary: building itself is 550x250 and 200 in height. The terrain is some 2000x3000. The Build is still missing a few notable details.
Progress: 100% Complete

Would you allow your building to be used as part of an adventure map together with other high-level constructs?
Of course everything would be properly credited.

Would be a shame for some since the only real way to figure that out is to die. By then your screwed.
A reasonable point for that. However, I still think this creation is worth a third place. We'll see.
You did a phenomenal job i congratulate you on your accomplishment i really think you deserve to win. But when you update this map can you please add lights and maybe rooms like a medieval theme with a throne, a dinner hall, princess room, dungeon, prince room, servants and guards room, and stuff like that.That would be really helpful. But other than that i looooooooooooooooove it wish you the best on the contest!

He doesn't use shaders, the pictures were made with a rendering tool - I guess it's Chunky.
It seems pretty repetitive.

Still, Terrain Control FTW! It generates infinite custom terrain.

This looks like their are only 7 different pieces that were then copied around on a build.

suddenly seems less epic now.
