I would so live there

Ha, I already tried to build something like this in Boundless.
But I realized that voxel games (even if they have amazing sloping features :wink:) don’t allow the equilateral triangular base that those builds require.

The first was one of the places where I was offered to live soon.
Haha, but refused, cause i found better ones.

Funny that you pointed that out. In Singapore you can by the way find a lot of nice architecture

i.e. the marina bay sands hotel:

some other impressions there, Sky habitat

Gardens by the bay:

digital cloud skyscraper

There is so much more. Just google Singapore architecture… quite stunning. It’s like a city of 2100

Too bad that the current beacon system doesn’t allow horizontal communal builds like that :disappointed_relieved:

Maybe with guild beacons when you can donate plots and whatnot and have some more people associated with the beacon.

It does, provided you set the others as villagers.

Guilds will be able to do this.

I did not mean a collaborative build as I’m well aware that & how it would be possible.
With communal I meant people building next to each other, forming independent builds in an vertical area.
(I don’t think that the house owners in the first picture all share access-rights to each others houses :wink:)

I thought the current beacon system saved vertical space when a beacon is placed? I don’t see any issues with horizontal builds right now.

My mistake, corrected it (though, it should have been obvious what I meant)

Good workaround for now is to use two beacon controls, with you owning both. Then you add a villager to the top one. It’s not COMPLETE INDEPENDENCE but it’s about as close as we can get right now.
