Hello everyone, this is my project for the “Skyscraper” building contest.

It is the largest structure I have ever built in Minecraft. It took me 18 days with 9-10 hours building per day (I have holidays now).

The complex is 254 blocks high and 317 blocks in diameter. The center tower stands on a 41x41 base because I wanted it to have a 1:6 width/height ratio. 1:7 appeared to me too slim and 1:5 too thick for a tower.

The building features a lot of weapons, some vehicles, lots of machinery and a lot of smaller and bigger details and comes with full interior (more about that below).

Teleporting command blocks take you through doors and simulate an elevator going up and down through the main tower.

I called it “The Last Man on Earth” because this is the complex the last man on earth lives in. How did it come to this? Read it in the lore!

The thumbnail render was kindly made by Ervinache235.


Enjoy!

I love how you really captured a mechanical post-apocalyptic atmosphere to it all!

Thank you very much! I couldn't have said it better, your sentence is so well articulated and hits the point. I actually didn't think myself about it (The Last Man on Earth) this way. But now that you mention it, I see it, too. Maybe I should write that down somewhere...

I gave this a diamond mainly because of the "lore" section.

Also why didn't the guy inside the tower just make a soundproof room with all his advanced technology and whatnot..?

Thats a good question. I wanted him to be a "tragic villain". He shouldn't just be evil because he's evil but because he "loves" his tower and wants to protect it. And to make it that both sides (man in the tower and humanity/military) suffer from the Great Siege, I made it that the man was totally crushed after it. It also was intended to make the audience feel something for the man in the tower although he is definitely the bad guy who wiped out humanity. Because, there is no destinctive line between "good" and "bad" but it depends on your point of view and the reasons that push you to do something. The man didn't want to eliminate humanity but he also didn't want to lose his tower.
So, in a nutshell, I didn't want him to be a guy who does something very bad and gets away with nothing. I wanted it to be hard work for him to save his tower.

It's a lot about the time you have available. If you have a lot of time, you can build a lot. If you don't have so much time, it's a little bit more difficult.
