I want to see a giant statue of Darren like the one outside the Cathedral in YAMS but as a Pharaoh. With a scepter (or ankh), headdress, and an Egyptian chin beard thing.

I think that we should have different types of pyramids as they did throughout the course of the Ancient Egyptian Civilization.
Maybe like[list]
[*]rock but tombs
[*]mastabas
[*]step pyramids
[*]Great Pyramids of Giza
[/list]

[center]*Great pyramids of Giza are the pyramids everyone thinks of, so didn't quite think we needed a picture for those[/center]

Well so long as we can get the main pyramid done first who says we cant get more pyramids made. Also with the inside im thinking a couple chambers (including treasure, king, queen.......)

Interesting fact of the day: The oldest pyramid (Pyramid of Djoser) was designed by Imhotep.

This looks so cool. I can't wait! :)

We should have a tomb in one of the pyramids with all kinds of rich stuff and statues like the ancient pharaohs! Tomb of King Tut for example. Edited by Daenerys2012

It's also a great place to gain levels, the flat area in front of spawn has a ledge above it, when mobs fall down you can literally punch them and they'll die.

Watch out for skeletons and endermen as they can be particularly annoying.

The building is going great and the outside of the pyramis should be finished soon, I'm wondering how we'll light up the inside though as 3 stacks of torches seemed to do nothing to slow the advance of mobs.

Well everyone the pyramid is going really well and the structure is almost finished.

Once it is we can make a start on the burrial chamber and all the other chambers inside :)

Outside of the pyramid there are still other things that people can make that fit in with the theme of Egypt. Some things that I personally had in my mind were a valley of the kings. A sand mine for the [s]slaves [/s]members to retrieve the sand for the pyramid construction (as well as their village).

Outside the pyramid i was thinking of leveling out the south side and we could make a couple statues maybe even a [s]Cleopatra's [/s]Steerpike's Needle.

So what are everyones thoughts.

Remember post your ideas/designs so we can all critique
