Hi guys!

We're at it again. Some of you may remember our Babylon city on Vetronia, and this is going to be pretty similar. We've already got the Ziggurat of Ur in place and mostly completed:

There's still a lot of work to be done on it, and so like any other build it will probably never be truly finished. The structure is over 200 blocks in both length and width, and is made entirely of sandstone. Our ziggurat is 4 times the scale of the real ziggurat of Ur, making for a very tedious building job. The middle is hollow, and we intend to finish flattening the floor underneath and build some things inside, but for now it's mostly living, working, and storage spaces.



Now, we're beginning work on the next ziggurat. That's right folks, there's gonna be more than one ziggurat - THREE, in fact. Here's a screenshot of the frame being put in for the second one, the Ziggurat of Marduk (also known as the Tower of Babyl). It's starting to take shape! It's going to be a staggering 128 blocks tall, going within about 8 blocks of the build limit, and sitting at or just below sea level.

Anyways, we'll post more as we have it, I just wanted to make a quick introduction since most of you readers are already familiar with our city concept from Vetronia. I'll have either Marsh or Alex post some particulars about the city later on, but come on - people only care about the giant ziggurats Confused



[EDIT - I messed with the formatting on this for like half an hour trying to make it pretty and I give up. Use your imaginations, people.]
