The centerpiece of this Überproject is an approximately 401x401 pyramid of sandstone stairs and rises to the maximum sky limit height of 256. The structure is so big that even when flying around with elytra, chunks unloaded too fast to get a good screenshot of the whole pyramid. The interior included impressive designs such an extravagant giant scarab wall, great halls, temple chambers and ominous tombs. The Entrance Arch to the Great Pyramid was designed and constructed by mattgorecki. Its total height is approximately 50 blocks.
Rough estimate of total resources used: 180000 sandstone stairs, 73000 sandstone, 36000 sandstone slabs, 17000 red sandstone, 13000 red sandstone slabs, 7000 red sandstone stairs, 5000 glass panes, 4000 hardened clay, 4000 glowstone, 3000 stone buttons, 2500 wool, 1800 coal blocks, 1500 torches, 1500 gold blocks, 1300 wool carpet, 1000 lapis blocks, 1000 water buckets, 650 wood buttons, 500 redstone blocks, 150 emerald blocks, 150 redstone lamps, 200 glazed terracotta blocks, and 80 diamond blocks.

The first Überproject was inspired by the halls of Moria and such works as Dome5. This project brought the server together to create something incredible. For directions, please see a rail map of the server, accessible via the PvE Atlas. Near the dig site are public farms including wheat and tree farms. There are direct lines from New Argoth, Lothos, and Nowhere. The nearest portal is at Nowhere.
On January 16, digging proceeds, scaffolds are constructed. A base camp is built up organically. Between January 20 and January 23 digging continues, additional scaffolds are constructed, and the first three pillars completed. Fourth and fifth pillars started. On January 26, digging effectively complete. On January 28, many more pillars were completed and fountains added. Sea level construction started.
