    Hello All,

    I have been working on the megapyramid and have seen lots of construction projects get in the way. I am moving the pyramid far out in build world so (hopefully) noone will come and build in its way. The new coordinates for the entry are x:0 z:-21K. This is the same type of pyramid as was being built last time: cobblestone, 240 blocks high from y=10 to y=250, and hollow on the inside. I hope this new location will be less likely to be built upon than the old one that was just 2K blocks from build spawn. Thank you, and have a great day minecrafting!

    Hello all, It has been one month since my last announcement that the megapyramid is moving. Again, the megapyramid work entrance is at x:0 z:-21K. It is just a hole in the ground right now, but I will probably change the work entrance to a tower or something soon so it is more visible. If you are still interested in the megapyramid project, you can help by comign out and working on the megapyramid, or taking apart the old one at x:-1000, z:-1500. Have a great day!

    Howdy Minefoxie, hope you enjoy the (well overdue) cobblestone I've donated thus far. :thumbsup:
    Plenty more to come before I look at things below the surface.

    A quick question though; do you want the interior area of the Megapyramid (ground inside it) to be flattened out down to lvl 10?

    Yes the interior will be flat at lvl 10.

    I am building 32 block high towers on the ground level at each corner of the pyramid. There is one already at the x:0 z:-21000 corner.

    Hello all,

    I have been working on clearing the forest so we can level the ground on what will be the inside of the pyramid, and I have been making the bottom level of the inside of the pyramid into grass. You can see this if you enter the bottom of the pyramid near x:0 z:-21000. Any help on placing blocks, donating cobble, clearing trees, or levelling the ground on the inside to lvl 10 would be greatly appreciated! So far its just been myself and crypto4coin working on the pyramid itself, and one player (sorry I can't remember your name) who donated 100 cobble to the project. Myself and Crypto4coin have been working on this project and have most of the above ground portion of the pyramid shell completed.

    I am wondering what we should do for an entrance to the pyramid once it is finished. If you have any suggestions for awesome pyramid entrances, please post them here.

    Thanks, and have a great day!

    That will be mountaindude23 with around 100 cobble from his inventory donated while performing mod related duties. :cool:

    For an entrance I like the 4 pillars on the sides and think 2 double doorways (example, West and South sides on the South-West tower, North and West sides on the North-West tower, etc..) with heavy pressure plates on the inside (to ensure it stays closed and keep out the worlds livestock). If you take up the idea below than perhaps even a public warp for the top of the pyramid would be practical (I have a private one up there that as you can see was very useful).

    An idea I think would be practical is an item sorter + silo (chests+hoppers) system as a good use of the pyramids internal space. Setup for common items (cobble, gravel, dirt for example) with the silos flowing down to ground level as unearthed would both be a practical use of the wood cleared and make for an easy way to take donations from other players that choose to do so. Combined with a public warp up top for the sorters intake hopper/s; donators can even remain anonymous. :sneaky:

    Edit: I have set s8pphireblues loose with a loan of some iron for tree clearing so not all the wood will be available for the above idea; however I have plenty in reserve elsewhere and can visit Resources world in future if necessary. :)

    Thanks crypto for getting someone else in on htis project! I do think an official storage space would be a good idea.

    We now have beefysam128 helping to dig out the inside of the pyramid! Thanks beefysam128!

    So far the megapyramid contributors are:

    Minefoxie (myself), Crypto4Coin, mountaindude23, s8pphireblues, and beefysam128.

    Please let me know if I missed anyone, and if you are interested in helping with this project, feel free to venture out and help! The closest pyramid entrance to spawn is at x:0 z:-21,000. Thanks, and happy MineCrafting!

    The server just can't enough of that tasty chicken :)

    As to my hours online; they generally range from 6 PM to 2 AM AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) pending other activities.

    I am working on a secret project related to the pyramid! There is currently a 4x4 square hole in the bottom of the pyramid at x:0 y:10 z:-21240, so please do not touch it, or the doors with the "Minefoxie's secret project" signs above them. Thanks!

    I have started on the construction of an entrance lobby that will hopefully become a public warp to the pyramid!

    Hello all,

    Weeicky81 has been helping me dig out the entrance lobby for the megapyramid today! Thanks weeicky81! The lobby is going to be the inside of a step-pyramid. We have the first two layers done and are almost finished with the third (just need some more oak logs to cover the ceiling!). Will keep this thread posted and will post a picture when the lobby is all hollowed out sometime this week! Have a great day!
