MUST READ:

Please note that this build contains a large amount of ice in close proximity to light sources; it is highly recommended that you use worldgaurd or similar modifications or settings to prevent ice melting.



LORE:
Zeriathos is the first of the sky ports, founded by the merchant and explorer of the same name, Archen Zeriathos, who was the first to navigate the clouds on an airship of his own design. His discoveries were world changing; he found massive floating islands in the sky, large enough for towns and cities, with purple feilds and crystal forests stretching out across them. Naturally, Archen claimed one such island as his own, and thus Zeriathos came to be.






Zeriathos rapidly grew in wealth as it became a center of commerce in this new world above the clouds. It was the gateway to the sky, to a place high above everything anyone had ever known, and the town flourished. Archen continued to explore the vast expanse of the open air in search of new wonders for many years, dieing 53 years after the founding of Zeriathos, but he left plans for the port's reconstruction. It's leadership, with all the wealth they had collected, began with these plans to build a town which would be an epitome of modern architecture which reflected it's might and riches. Extravagant new airships were constructed and a beautiful arched wall with windows of flowing water and levitated ice patterns was built to encircle the eastern section of the town. The trade centre was transformed into a massive hall; a monument to Zeriathos' success and the heart of it's trade empire. All was built of the finest marble, the most opulent dyed clay, the purest skywood, lit by glowing beacons and trimmed with blocks of pure diamond.

Finally, excatly 100 years after the founding of the port, a great statue of Archen Zeriathos himself was erected in the middle of the town, in memory of the man who had conquered the sky, and made it all possible.



EXTRA CREDIT:
Huge thanks to Mlan94 who spent hours working on a magnificent video for this project and rendered out some great images! Please check out his PMC here: http://www.planetminecraft.com/member/mlan94/ and his youtube channel here, for more amazing mincraft cinematics: https://www.youtube.com/user/Mlan94/



OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES:
This build, as you may have noticed, is not 100% complete as of yet. The reason for this is purely because I havn't had time; I've only had 8 days to build this entire thing and get video, screenshots and PMC sorted out, and I had to release this before I leave for a personal social event in order to enter the contest in time. The only thing missing is the interior of the trade center (the big megastructure) which I will complete either today, or post-contest if possible. I will then update with the new and completed world file.
