This phoenix have gone through a reincarnation: the old smaller uglier version of it got burn by fire when server plugins gone broken. The serpent took weeks? months? to finish because I was busy with work and making the body of the serpent were so tricky. At the end I cheated here and there with worldedit copy paste, and it still looks awkward... Applied a lot of lessons from [email protected] when making the serpent. Some revision on the phoenix also came from featherblade's constructive criticism. While the phoenix originally fighting the two headed dragon, the fight with serpent looks a lot more appropriate.

It wasn't a true Phoenix until you built it again. Rising from the flames of its former self.
I'm actually trying to build Habitat 67 from Marc-Drouin Quay on the Saint Lawrence River near Montréal. They are residences built for the 1967 International and Universal Exposition. I'm building a bit less than 1/6 of the actual building but I'm pretty close to a 1:1 scale (real building is in feets and minecraft is in meters). I will eventually try to use it as a residence for players in my SMP server (should fit 15-20 people in.)
Google Habitat 67 for real pictures.
This is what mine look like:
I'm missing some actual pictures of the floors and from the back of the building to be able to complete it. I used zombe fly mod for contruction and TMI for the materials, but I'm still proud of what I've bone.
Absolutely brilliant, I love Habitat 67. Very impressive.

Took 12-18+ hours to make.
I started building vertical at first, but then realized it was too tall for the vertical plane, so I had to start over horizontal.
I jury-rigged a custom texture pack together so the colors would be just right.
Ok ... I decided to post something here too :smile.gif: I did this on our multiplayer server. We have several projects running there and atm this is the biggest one. For this I only used the give command no other cheats were used.
The buildings are placed on an area which is 295 x 171 blocks in size. All buildings are 20 stories high and each is five blocks high. On the pic which give an overview one can see 13 stories. 7 of them are basement. Above the buildings there is a roof made of glass which is 295 x 220 blocks in size.
I'm planning on doing a lot of stuff to the buildings so ... I'll post screenies every now and then. If anyone is interested more pics can be found here: Link to gallery
I hope, some of you enjoyed these pics. Since the stats are available I placed about 400'000 blocks. The entire complex consists of almost 1'000'000 blocks.
I'm in the process of building an arch bridge like the Sydney Harbor Bridge or similar ones elsewhere. This bridge is located across a fairly deep span of water about 32 blocks wide near the snow biome SE of my castle.
To get the basic design, I drew a curve on a piece of graph paper using a curve template (used in drafting), and copied the shape from one side to another. I then filled in blocks and also put in the deck supports. I found a use for all my excess bricks, and made the bridge out of it. Not counting the deck, the overhead arch and deck supports are 484 blocks.
Later I plan to add the bridge abutments. They will be fairly thick, maybe 4 or 5 blocks.
The bridge in an early stage, maybe about 1/4 through.
Another image after I had gotten almost halfway through the arch.
I ran minecart tracks along the deck. The dirt and sand at the bottom I put there because initially I wanted to put the arch below the deck. I'll post a screenshot when the bridge is finished.
Something went wrong with my nether SMP world and the world ended up like this..

Poof. Out of memory. My game glitched up so hard when I warped back to my world that when I tried to take a screenshot, it crashed on me. D: Also, I can't return to my original world using the portal, only by killing myself or by warping to the spawn. And when I try to warp back to the original world, it loads a third normal world. It looks like a paradise. But I don't have pictures of that.
(Sorry, can't do img tags because it seems like it won't let me.)
I went exploring in my current world, which is nearing 100 MB in size. I explored the area around the snow biome on the eastern edge of my world, as well as other areas north of my house and far to the south.
This is from the area of the snow biome. Pine trees as far as you can see beyond the ice.
Two shots of what I called waterfall country. While it is normal to see maybe 1 or 2 of them in a given area, there were four of them here. The fourth is to the left of the two below.
This waterfall was on the far right of the two in the above image.
While exploring north of my house, and north of a large cave system I had posted shots from a few months ago, I encountered this cave. Brown mushrooms were growing naturally in every single block of floor space in the cave. I have never seen that many in one place.
One of my latest obsessions in the game has been to keep track of the number of aggressive mobs I've killed, either directly with sword or bow, or indirectly with dispensers shooting arrows, or drowning in my mob trap. I don't count those that drown in the two spawner traps I visit to get arrows, bones & feathers. This is from about 3 weeks worth of play.
