Hello, I have a request to for this island project I have. Have any of you read the Divine Comedy? I would "like" to base my idea off of that for this project. The main issue with the build I have planned, are surface features of the island. As such, I need to build over water. The original island is currently at a state where I have carved it out, and raised it up to a flat surface. I only supplemented one tiny area to fill the desired shape of the island, in which it is supported. Originally, I had planned to have flat "cliff faces" so to speak on every side. However, Emulated notified me that it needed to look more natural, as in it needed to look like it was jutting up from the ground as if it was over a convergent plate boundary (the last phrase is my own words). Also, he told me I needed to request permission to expand over water prior to doing so. Besides that tiny area, I hadn't really expanded, rather cut away. Regardless, I do apologize for not requesting that prior to doing so. Keeping this in mind, I am currently in the process of "naturalizing" the island as instructed. Beyond what I am currently completing, I would like to request to expand over the water, rather more seriously this time. I have supplied pictures and explanations to help with the request.

First: Here is the XYZ and a picture of the island



Here: I made a blueprint of the project to provide a more clear explanation of what I would like to do. The towers will extend into the water and I will make them reach the ocean floor, wherever that may be. blueprint.jpgImage Enlarger

Below, this is the kind of support I would provide for the six bridges. Using fencing to create this.

What type? Definitely not wood. Probably nether fence.



This project will be a long haul for myself. I am beginning yet another semester of college. Along with this, I will have a part time job. I would love to be able to do this for a few reasons. I love the Divine Comedy as it is one of my favorite reads. Second, this would be my biggest project alone. I would love to be able to portray a famous literary work such as this in a virtual realm I can build it in.


CORRECTION: Instead of the glass domes on the towers, I would like to be able to have glowstone domes instead, allowing me to build a symbol of each circle in place of the Glowstone spires. 


Where are the last two circles you may ask? They will be built in the ground under the island, not visible to the surface eye, reachable by elevator. They are primarily ice as the victims in these circles are doers of fraud and treachery, considered the worst type of sin. Thank you for your time and consideration of my request to build a monument of the Divine Comedy.

Update: The naturalization process has been completed, and I would prefer that it be OK'd before I even do anything else with the island itself.

I'm going to give this an approval, however staff will be stopping in from time to time to review progress. Please remember all expansions over water must be done from the bottom upwards, and be 100% solid.
