Over year ago I posted about it. Here is the latest status from March as aerial screenshots. There was no good viewer for the maps, so I had to take some, in the flying mode.
Well, it didn’t. The project is insane, but still slowly progressing. Here is a collage of pictures (360 °) of current status of the project. Oh, I have my both children now roaming the region with me, as I turned the world into an inhouse server.
Just a reminder, that every block is mined first, and then placed by hand one by one.
The Obawangchicheng castle is so big that it is not possible to show it’s size through minecraft‘s own interfaces, so I had to use a map viewer (eihort) to get some pictures of it.
From east. Note the massive desert area, which the castle will cover.
Just showing the castle elevation of the height and land it will cover.
So now you know where the blocks from leveled mountain has gone.
Some work in progress images for you. The mountain has been finally turned into building blocks, and the middle ring wall of south-western corner has been built. Also some progress with the main entrance has been made. Let the images speak for themselves.
The mountain has been replaced with a middle ring wall tower and wall.
A happy cow. (note that this image is taken from top of mountain which is going to be demolished at some point)
The middle ring rises itself so high, that it covers the land below it.
The main entrance seen from opposite shore. On left can be seen the other mountain to be turned into building blocks. The wall goes through the mountain.
Main entrance without the roof and finished walls.
