Hi all,

First off, big fan of this magnificent building! I am a bit of a Minecraft-nut and I have decided to start a 1/2 scale Burj Khalifa. Having some issues making a texture pack to set the colours off right, but this is what i have so far.



Just waiting on the server owner to install a height mod. Should t/o at 414 blocks!

i plan on having a livable, workable, and enjoyable environment on the interior as well. It is a very daunting task ahead of me to recreate the greatest structure in modern history but I think I can do it.

Thanks,


Nic

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao visits Burj Khalifa (WAM)


Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao has toured Burj Khalifa and other tourist and business areas in Dubai.

He climbed to the 124th floor in Khalifa Burj, where he viewed the landmarks of Dubai City, expressing his admiration about the progress of the UAE in general and Dubai in particular, thanks to the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The Chinese Premier also toured the Chinese Dragon Mart at Al Warsan district, where he met huge crowd of Chinese who cheered him, expressing their pleasure of meeting him in the UAE. Jiabao talked to a number of shop owners.

The Chinese Dragon Mart is the biggest market at the Middle East level. It includes about 3, 000 shops.

Jiabao was accompanied during the tour by Reem Ibrahim Al Hashimi, State Minister, UAE Ambassador to China Omer Udai and Chinese Ambassador to UAE Gao Yusheng.

LOL yeah. When i see internet arguments by people who are jealous that they no longer have the world's tallest skyline etc, i'm thinking
hey, there's nothing remotely like that here. Show some appreciation for what you've got!?

I was recently in Den Haag and those ~100m buildings were impressive enough.
