Thank you very much :)
Here is the new result:


Wow. (I usually avoid to use this kind of colloquial exclamations). The first one looked good enough for me because I wanted to grasp the general volumetric outline of shape and proportions. But this is, heh, ideal.

Of course I must stress that I've made a number of changes to the original project of ESB. Just couldn't resist following my own imagination and curiosity (like in the case of the west entrance).

To be frank, even in its present limited scope the project isn't entirely complete; I gave up with floors not because it would be too difficult, but due to the awful lighting isuues which cause horrible black shadows on the outer walls, which much too often can't be erased by the 'fixlight' command. The same is about vertical tin strips on the mooring mast -- I stopped adding them because especially 'replace' command exercised on large surfaces makes these ugly black spots appear.

If anyone would like to continue the work, feel free to follow your own concepts. It would be nice to see this building with all the antennas, barriers, floors and, of course, staircases and elevators.

Thank you, Gael for great rendering and wziard for the effective tool for this purpose :)

EDIT: I've added a link to your rendering in the main post.

I computed some figures using the schematic and my Python schematic loader: it is 1334 blocks high and contains 2942145 nodes (excluding air).

Wow. It sounds hard to believe. I started it shortly after that airship last year and at first I wanted to finish it in 2 weeks (as it was primarily planned to be composed only of simple geometric volumetric shapes), then I thought for a while that I'd get it in time before laborious summer seazon, then... was work, so all in all it took about 3 months of continuous work. Today, with that experience I think I'd make it in about 1-2 months.

You may bet my next building will be much smaller :) I dream about really great re-creations of jewels of world architecture in the similar scale. Yeah, Minetest is a new painting canvas.
