Enter the labyrinth if you dare...built around the ancient skeleton of a monster, the Shrike's Temple rises out of a canyon floor, its soaring arches and sharp towers crumbling over the centuries. Spreading in every direction, the Labyrinth twists and turns around mounds of bones and sharp cliffs. The only way to the reach the Temple is to conquer the Labyrinth.

The Labyrinth begins at the arched spiral in front of the temple, and ends at the temple steps. There is only one solution.

This build was inspired by the Shrike, an evil deity from the book Hyperion,
by Dan Simmons; shapes were inspired by Gaudi's Sagrada Familia. Built
on the Pandora's Blocks server, renders made in Chunky.

Hi, I don't log in much anymore but you're welcome to use it, that's why I put the world save up. As long as you're not profiting from it and you give credit I don't mind.

Something caught my attention, and then I realized it was the name. The Hyperion Cantos was an awesome book series :p

The build is awesome too! Nice job.

The render looks somehow unsharp.
May it be that the autofucus messed up or that you should deactivate atmosphere?

Fantastic! Only one issue, though... For builds of this scale, I don't consider an MCEdit schematic to be effective when it comes to distribution. Importing huge structures through the already badly optimized program can be a hassle and finding a place to put it in an already existing world can be tiring and frustrating.

I have added on a world save, hopefully that will make things easier for people. Thanks for the feedback!

dats awesome. I would never do it though.. I hate solving mazes

If anyone wants to know... To 100% always solve a maze.. Just hug the right or left side( always turn just left or just right) and you will always get out of the maze xD

Looks awesome! Usually I would say use more block variation, but in this case I feel like it kinda makes it feel complete. Original and awesome!

Question: Is the labyrinth actually playable?

It is indeed! The starting point is an arched spiral at the front of the temple, and there is only one correct path to the base of the temple steps.

Excellent work here. It's rare to see a structure built for an arid climate on PMC, let alone one that looks this impressive and cohesive to its atmosphere. Well done, indeed.
