CTX Inc MegaMallGreetings all,Today, Friday the 13th, 2014, ground broke for what will become my largest EMC project ever (outside of build team stuff of course).That project is rebuilding a previously designed and built skyscraper I made elsewhere, my mall skyscraper.Project StatusStage 1: Materials Collection - Started 3/17/2014 [COMPLETE]This project is massive, and requires an enormous quantity of materials, both cheap and expensive. Material gathering to be done by me, with minor help from any donations made. Additional materials donated after initial collection will go towards the shop's stock once open.Stage 2: Construction - Started 6/13/2014 [COMPLETE] It took two months to collect all the needed materials, and will likely take twice that to build, depending on available time, motivation, etc. Due to the size of this project and inability to fly, extra time will be needed for this step.Construction progress: All above and below ground structures completed. Adding finishing touches & details prior to furnishing & stocking.Stage 3: Shop Setup & Stocking [IN PROGRESS]This step will be the most expensive for myself, and may take a month or two. A megamall is designed to carry nearly every item in the game, and setting up the shop signs & stocking things is often not as easy as it appears. THE RES WILL BE CLOSED DURING SETUP. (to prevent people messing with shop signs before they're properly set up & tested)As I previously built this structure on another server (my friend's) I was able to use worldedit to precisely measure materials needed for construction and take additional measurements to ensure an exact replica. Here's a screenshot of it as previously constructed. Once complete on EMC it will look just like this. More pictures to come later.Project Stats & InfoHere's some overly-detailed stats on what makes up this beast of a tower.Data listed with raw amount, followed by amount in stack format.

Those who donated up to this point will receive their book soon!Donations can be made on-site at 12001 or at the donation bin at my home on SMP2 (3178).Thanks for reading! In case you missed it, the project will be located at spawn on SMP6, on res 12001. The res will not be closed off to visitors during most of its construction, so feel free to stop on by!.
