Welcome to my latest and greatest project yet! I call these The Voxxen Rifts,
you can probably guess where I came up with the name. This project
started from a dream I had about a week ago. 10 hours 15 minutes later,
over the course of 5 days, I made these 6 portals. There are two main
types of portals, I call them Grounded, and Airborne, I made three each
of these portals. As forth portal it self, there are 2 types:
Dimesnional and Vorttex/Wormhole, I made two each.

I have some Gifs of the two Rifts without portals and you can view them in the spiler down below!

Voxxen Rifts


If only Minecraft had a higher height restriction, I could make these bigger and more intricate . . .




Two more on the way!
Thanks to eagoy for helping me with these!

Here are the specs of the two types of Rifts
219 blocks/meters wide
61 blocks/meters long
226 blocks/meters high

381 blocks/meters wide
23 blocks/meters long
219 blocks/meters high

Lore of The Voxxen Rifts
"The war between the Ironclad Empire and the forces of Nether waged for years, with little to no success coming to light. The literal power struggle was claiming countless lives on both sides all the while countless battles were being waged all over the galaxy. The end seemed near, and it was going to be a terrible loss. Ships could only maintain their Dimensional Gateways for only so long, and for entire fleets to escape from battles, at least one ship had to stay behind to sacrifice itself, its crew, to let the others escape. We could only go so far. It was at that time when we started to become more desperate than ever.

Fleets of Engineers and scientists worked for weeks in the dark, only to come up with nothing, no end to our struggle, no ultimate victory, and only utter defeat. Masses of powerful Glowstone were pulled from reserves to test and retest various machines and contraptions that could save us, but all ended in failure. Hope to win seemed lost, and it really was.

That is, until two students at the Theoretical Astrophysics College in Colum City found a solution. Not fixated on the war effort, but on sciences they pursued a lifelong ambition to realize the dreams of one Daniel Voxxen - a hopeless renegade scientist long thought to be dead and insane - a rift that can traverse whole dimensions altogether, and can transport anyone or anything across any distance, regardless of spatial differences before. Unlike the Dimensional Gateways the Strong Battleships carried, these Gateways could stay open and send whole armadas through space and stay open for the return home.

But that never was the idea for Voxxen.

His idea was to use this machine for exploration. Traversing the cosmos by ship could take thousands of years; his machine could do it in seconds. Voxxen was only able to come up with a rough blueprint of his gateway before he suddenly and mysteriously disappeared, soon fading into rumor that he even existed.

These two students soon built their first prototype. Based off of existing gateway designs, they incorporated a spinning circle on a horizontal axis so it would not only create a portal, but a wormhole as well. They used confined centrifugal force to allow the rift to stay open once activated, and happily celebrated once their experiment was completed.

The two students soon presented their "little" project to the Planetary Sciences Board of Directors and were implemented for use in the civilian sector. It wouldn’t take too long for the Military to find out about the project and the plans were seized, modified, implemented, and built.

We have ourselves another war now, but it continues on a new front. Just as in ancient times ships sailed across the ocean, we did so with the stars, Aircraft soon came flying in and the world changed, now we fly on a new plane of existence, far into the unknown. Well, that’s enough for story time now, but don’t worry! We will continue our story next time children! The End, is near."

I would like to say thanks to everyone who helped me on this project, you know who you are.

One more thing. By downloading this project for yourself you acknowledge and understand these two rules I have:

1: You do not claim them or an edited version of any of them as your
own, make vague claims that could easily be interpreted as such,
or reupload anything even if you link back to the original.

2: You're making no sort of monetary profit off of them.

I hope you enjoy this project, I sure did!

Dont forget to Diamond, Favorite, and subscribe! Ill catch you later with another awesome project!

Im pretty sure this is just a rumor but I heard that the Ironclad Empire, the same one who built these rifts created a Time Window like devise. They say that it only worked one time but it let them peer into a different timeline. They saw a ship fighting a black liquid mass of some kind but they didnt see any other ships around it, even though there was clear fire around that ship. Scientists took energy measurements and some say that the energy by one of the smallest weapons they could see had more output than our entire galaxy. The window closed after the black liquid mass came right at the window!

But dont take my work for it, thats only the word on the streets, nothing but a rumor.

while many people think that it was an inspiration for this project, I havent seen it in years, and this, like all inventions for our lady Science came to me in a dream!
