Hello,
I want to show you my interpretation of The Reichstag (Germany, Berlin). This project took a lot of my time because of it's size and details. This is not a perfect model and had never had it be!

A few things you should know about my Reichstag project:

- it's 225 blocks length, 250 blocks width and 130 blocks height
- it's 100% handmade (no building features like /fill, no map editors)
- it's 100% builded on default, public server (underd0g's custom map server)
- it's scaled (1 block = 1 meter)
- building was moved 3 times from map to map in OMEN... layer by layer
- it was griefed... many times... regulars were angry because of often backup loading

The video is here:

Thanks to:
underd0g - for the server and many other things
ops/regulars from underd0g' custom map server - for mental support and help with repairing griefed parts
Notch - for this great game
WoM - for inspirations and flying hacks

Hope you like it.

PS: No, I'm not German
PS2: Sorry for my bad english - I'm working on it

That...that is beyond awesome. Far surpasses the Notre Dame build someone did awhile back (youtube it). How long did it take?

Is the server_level.dat file available?

I started this project 21.09.2009 and finished it something like a week ago, but I wasn't working on it all the time so it's hard to say exactly how long it took.

server_level is not avalible, but maybe there will be a theme-build server with my Reichstag in it :D

This far surpasses any other artwork or building work of anybody, anywhere, ever made in minecraft.

I want to give you a really famous award.

Watching that video made my jaw hit the floor. I'm in complete awe. Holy shit. I'm at a loss for words. By Hand? like, i guess the flying hacks help, but still? You really did that by hand? Just, just wow.

Honestly, I'm amazed, I think it's totally great, but just one thing irks me.  Why use the tree trunk block for the floors inside?  I would have used the plank block instead, since they flow together way better than the tree blocks.
Any specific reason for the choice?

Magnificent.

Now all you need is to get a dutch communist to start a fire in it so you can declare total executive powers over the server.

That's one of the reasons why I decided to build something like this on public server :D

OMG I was THERE when you started this, and I placed at least 10 blocks helping this.  It was on the front steps extending to the left and right.  I HELPED!

This is so epic that Chuck Norris died when he saw it.
