I posted a pic of this project for the screenshot contest and thought it was time to tease you with the progress we've made. 😀
This project is the full 128 blocks high, luckily we had most of the lava cleared before the MP health bug was fixed!

First a shot from about 6 months ago when we started making real progress. The center spire actually started as a simple shaft cut straight down to locate the center, as it evolved we carved around it leaving a spire behind:

Here is the spire after yours truly completely rebuilt it:

Here is a current view from inside, all 64,000+ glass blocks are in place and most of the estimated 2.4 million blocks are cleared out. You can also see the dirt blocks on the floor marking the footprint of phase2, which I'm just beginning:

Now to move outside, the pyramid is to be surrounded by an inverted pyramid starting at sea level. About 1/3 of this part is now cleared with cobble stairs (already numbering in the 1,000's) covering the slope. Eventually there will be water flowing down the edges:

Credit for the concept goes to DraginElite, with myself, moose517, emepror, sleinous, and our newest helper, 4g63pilot putting in many hundreds of hours!

Enjoy!! :good:

Thanks strud! most people who call us insane don't seem to mean it in a good way, I guess only a fellow minecrafter would understand. lol

One more thing to show you, this is the desert biome we absolutely raped to make all that glass:

I guess it's hard to see, but that's just stone. We discovered this desert before sandstone was introduced, I've had to craft the sandstone used so far. 🙁

Ok, I gotcha. So what do you have up your sleeve? Are you talking about the plans to make worlds more than 128 high?
