    So, After getting more and more questions on how I make my domes and how I get my circles to be so...circular, I'll post what I use and how to use it.

    This pretty much sums up Everything you need to know :

    TL:DR
    1. Count out how big you want your sphere or circle from end to end, this would be the diameter [for those who are mentally handicapped and needed to be told that].

    2. Go to this page and where it lists all the hyperlinked numbers, choose the number that is the size of your sphere or circle.

    3. It will go to a page with an image, you might be confused as to how this tiny ass, illegible image is going to help you make a giant ass sphere, if this is the case, lol.

    4. Right click, Save as [hugecock.jpg for example<--- lol] and open the image in which ever image editor you prefer. It works perfectly well with Microsoft Paint, Photoshop, Paint.net, etc.

    5. Once you have it open, Zoom in until your simple mind understands what is going on. Make sure to make grid-lines visible on your image editor, This helps counting pixels.

    6. The image is the full sphere broken down into layers. Layer #1 is the bottom of the sphere. The orange # layers are the middle layers, the largest of the sphere. These orange layers is what you want if you just want to make a circle. Each pixel is one block in minecraft [again, make sure grid-lines are on and make sure you are zoomed in a whole lot].

    Enjoy making your spheres.

    Edit, Dont be a derp and look at this and say "wow thats long, looks confusing, fack this durrrr"
    Its probably the easiest way to suddenly spheres.

    I use this: http://neil.fraser.name/news/2006/11/17/
    Set Z to 1 instead of 0.75 and set your own radius.
    Radius = diameter/2 (If you don't know this then you should seriously be worried.)

    That helps a lot for domes, but for for circles... If you have photoshop, go to "New" and make a document the size of your diameter. Then use the circle tool and make a circle the size of the file. Then zoom in and there you go :D

    PS: If you need to see the pixels easier use the paint bucket tool and fill the circle with black.

    Is even better than that pink only-odd-diameter circle diagram. I only ever need this pic.
