The Palace of Justice; it's phenomenal.

Everyone, I'd like for you to meet the Palace of Justice built by LukeDS and Murps. This phenomenal building has creativity, design, and amazing written all over it. Building started on August 7th and it's been a good progress ever since. The building design stems off the Law Courts of Brussels, although not exactly the same. The best part is that this level is PLAYABLE! That's right, you yourself, can go to this map and watch anything the way you want it in real 3D Minecraft!

Go play on this server in Minecraft (Creative mode) and then type "/museum projecthuge" and you will fathom over greatness.

If you don't want to read all of this or see the stages of construction, go down to the bottom of this post for the most up to date screenshot!

Since I honestly think the screenshots don't show the size or level of detail we've put into the build, to see it in person join This Server then once in game, just type "/g projecthuge" if you get a message about it not being loaded use "/museum projecthuge"
(I hope this isn't breaking any rules, please tell me if it is)

OK, so a little back story for anyone that doesn't know (aka, everyone). Murps and Myself have build some pretty large and great stuff ("murpsville" and "newhope" levels, on "Ocean Multiworld Flatgrass (MCLawl)" server.), but we wanted to build something truly epic like ecrider. We decided on : Law Courts of Brussels (Though, not exactly the same)

Work on this building began on 7th August
So, with the very limited amount of pictures we could find - we made a floor plan (1/8 scale)
Image

We then used a 8x8 block so we didn't go wrong, but apparently according to all the work we've done fixing the 'off center' issue, we got it wrong at some point.
Image

Removing the walls we no longer needed
Image

Making a platform for it to sit on, will make it look less crappy later.
Image

Murps places the first blocks, working on the front of the building
Image

I work on a corner piece while murps is working on the entrance.
Image

I've started on the walls
Image

Murps continues on the front
Image

I build a side entrance type thing
Image

Front is looking awesome
Image
Image

Work on the back entrance has started
Image

My Starcraft 2 turns up so I disappear for a few days and come back to this! :O
Image

I again disappear doing other things and Murps the mad man has almost completed the roof
Image
Image

After a little work on the roof, I make a little garden type thing
Image

End of 26th August

Just to keep the first post updated with the most up to date picture: 29th August:

This has been done for a while - just now uploading it though - 13th October
Image

More pictures are on the second page! :D


As you can see, by looking directly at these pictures, you can capture the hard work that has gone into this. There was planning, scaling, detailing, building, and more! It's truly a work of art. This is what makes Minecraft so beautiful!

But they're not done, folks! The inside is equally beautiful!

Check out what Murps did. LukeDS updates us:

Quick update since something has actually been done:
This is the view as soon as you enter through the front
Image
and this just looks totally epic
Image

See, amazing things CAN happen in Minecraft! But you're not done drooling yet! Here are more amphitheater shots. LukeDS says:
More new pics! :D

Truly a spectacle gem. I can't think of any more terms that I can describe this work of art. The latest update of LukeDS states:
Couple more updated pictures -

Image

Some work from the inside just showing detail ;D (No very good angle to get a screenshot, trust me though - it's just as awesome as everything else.)
Image

-- I think it's only fair at this point if I say that while still updating the thread with pictures, it's basically a Murps only project now and has been for a while. (Not making excuses... But I want to stay out of his way, I only think I'll mess it up at this point.) :P


So, a one-man-show now, huh? Either way, the progress this has made was fun to watch. It will be fun to see where this go and one can only wonder why this hasn't been noticed by more people. Minecraft, you're turning people into artists, designers, and engineers. This is why we love you, Minecraft. This is why we need you.
