This build was done on a single player world with an inventory editor and peaceful mode. It turns out that geodesic domes aren't very straightforward to design so I wrote a program to figure out the block placement. This particular dome has a diameter of 121 blocks and a frequency of 8v. There are about 7687 cobblestone blocks and 13876 glass blocks (give or take a few).
Now I'm trying to design buildings to put inside. And I'm also thinking of adding a network of smaller domes around it with farms and trees. It's also possible to build a larger diameter dome by starting with a larger diameter design and only building the top fraction that fits under the world ceiling. For example I could make a 240 block diameter design and only build the top 60 blocks (but it would take forever to build).
Woah. That's awesome!
Were you going to release the program? Because that is something I would really download! :laugh.gif:
I posted the program I wrote for the design. I forgot to add instructions, but it's fairly self-explanitory. The only thing to worry about is that it takes a long time to calculate the glass panels, so do that last (after you are happy with the settings). Also you can save your design so you don't have to re-do the glass generation.
I didn't use mcedit when building it. I did it the hard way and made modifications to my design program to try to make the job easier.
