    Day 58 of Build 2, and Valra:

    Well I wasn't on for 2 weeks so nothing happened, so I thought it’s about time this room was finished, so in 2days me, AntM90 and Gilblobbo blitzed the half of the room what was left. Then today I laid out the base of all the pillars and the floor has now almost ready for the sandstone base to go on.

    O and there’s now 415,635 cobblestone in storage.

    sandstone sucks doesn't it? Think of it this way:mine 400 stacks of sand, get 100 stacks of sandstone. Wah wah wah!

    I hate how that is. Anyhow, I am glad the progress is going well.

    benner beat me to it but nonetheless.
    Day 63 of Build 2, and Valra:

    Well since the last post me and AntM90 cleared the floor area and laid it with sandstone, and then yesterday I finished clearing the layer of wall and laid the sandstone and glowstone wall, and half pillars (about 20k sandstone on each wall and floor so 40k). We need another 38,880 sandstone for the 180 pillars at 29*8, then just over 20k for the roof. I want this room to be finished this time next week on the 17/18th so lots to be done.

    Any Donation of sandstone, red wool, or glowstone will be appreciated.
    60,000 sandstone
    2,800 glowstone
    1100 red wool

    If not give us a visit at /st 3valra, to maybe help gather sand or just to have a look.

    If those central troughs are going to be filled with water, I love this.

    also for the side for the bridge, stairs + slabs = win.

    Once I get back from my Vacation, I will have to donate some of my sandstone to you. I have plenty of it and I hardly use it, so you would put better use to it than me. Just remind me once I get back.

    I'd like to contribute in helping, being a fellow Morian (not quite like Bagline, Bodydrag or Flupperz) I'm more than willing to help! I see that the red wool flooring isn't quite complete, would you like me to complete it with some of my red wool?

    Also, would you like me to carry on nuking the desert to get more sandstone?

    Day 72 of Build 2, and Valra:

    Well it would be finished by now but I've done quite a bit of work in the lobby world so I haven't been on build that much. However Me and Jim_Jam94 did at least put the roof on a quarter of the area so it shows what is roughly going to look like.

    2012-02-19_20.18.07.png 2012-02-19_20.18.26.png

    On another note its time to sort out storage since there's now 20 people on the doors and im going to clean it up...

    Please move all private chests to the new area, maximum of 3 chests. if any of them are left by this time next week 26/2/12 21:30GMT then you will forfiet the contents there are some exceptions to this if you notify me otherwise.
    @James Gilbertson

    just one suggestion here :
    Are you sure you want to have so many pillars? I mean even in reality how heavy is the ceiling for those pillars to handle to have so many? = even more materials needed

    Plus , unlike moria you can't see clearly how big the room is if you look at on corner to other corner because pillars block the view.The only way might be to look in reference to axial directions(Up and down,left and right ) and not diagonally. That's just my opinion though. It's your hall . It still looks great even with many pillars.

    WOO post 100

    Fair enough, I somewhat agree, but you can’t look from corner to corner at Valra or moria because of the render distance isn’t far enough (the only way I got that photo was to sethome and take the screenshot before it un rendered). As for the pillars you need to bear in mind I took that photo from 70m away so they look closer together, and I also think they make the room look taller. It looks much different when walking around it, and when it’s finished; all the other rooms that have been built on my test world are much more open.
    But that's just my opinion

    Now as for realism...

    A single pillar would weigh 837 tones
    Weight of the roof is 55,752 tonnes (310 tonnes on each pillar)
    So a load of 1,147 tonnes in total on each pillar

    Overall supported weight is 206,460 tonnes :eek:

    I tried to work out the maximum load what each pillar could carry, but I didn’t understand half of what I was reading.
