K. Here's the castle/palace i'm working on... its close to being done on the exterior but I haven't done much on the inside.
I call it, Peaceful Palace... or... Arithmos Xanadu
It was made almost legit with the exception that I began using magic carpet about 1/2 way through construction. All materials were mined by hand by myself or I payed other players to mine them for me.
Scroll to later posts for newer pics. :biggrin.gif:

Interior spiral staircase
And... thats about it! Hope you all liked it.
Any suggestions about how I should finish off the upper most portion?
There's also a wheat farm and tree farm that aren't pictured. And a mine that goes down to bedrock where I branch-mine.
Some of the other creations close to the castle:
Bull head made by Malgma
Daths Castle and Cathedral
Casino made by Jormah complete with redstone-powered slot machine
Town Hall (made by me)

Thanks for taking a look and sharing in the wonder of minecraft with me! :biggrin.gif:
Also, there are tons of other cool things on this smp server (check my sig)... Like an entire replica of Rapture the underwater city... a floating city... a castle on legs... a cool arabian castle... a giant obsidian pyramid... and tons of other cool stuff :biggrin.gif:
I don't know why but the owner shut it down... financial reasons I think... sad sad days... next time if I embark on an ambitious project like this I will be sure to find a way to export the castle to my computer so I don't lose all my hard work. I had done alot of work on the upper throne room, it looked super awesome... and I had designed a really sweet hidden door.
