    Hey guys,
    welcome to my thread, I assume most of you know of me as I'm a regular on eco city craft.

    Well a little about the city.


    The city will be just over 100 x 100 as the city walls will be out by about 5 squares. Crystal city will be made almost entirely from glass, with the exception of a little dirt that I might implement later in the city.
    The floor of the city is roughly 50 squares in the air from sea level.
    There will be a big glass stairway leading to the town.
    The city is in the icy southern section of ecocitycraft giving it a nice snowy glow to it.
    The city will cost thousands of dollars. (Please donations are highly appreciated if you are able to donate anything)
    Crystal city is not the final name of it as I may change my mind.
    Looking for a reliable co mayor willing to help.
    I'm about 15% done laying the bottom floor of glass so far.

    Here's a picture of the process as of 8 of July. (A lot of progress may be made since you have seen this.)

    I would also love to help but I also have my own city to work on.
    a suggestion:
    make roads out of different material because it is difficult to navigate when everthing is glass

    Snow balls are 10c each and 4 snowballs makes a snow block, so they're 40c each if you make them that way, how much are they pre made?

    If you're having trouble seeing the outline of buildings, try using some evergreen wood to outline the shape.
