Hey, on the pic i made, i probably didnt make it clear but where i put the numbers, i meant that... for example on tier 18... where i put "18" you would loose that wing as the rest of the structure continues....and it would carry on up 3 floors, then loose the "19" tier, and carry on up.

Does that make sense?

It made perfect sense to me. The tiers seem to go up in a spiral around the building and it looks like your numbers indicated that. It's just gonna get scarier and scarier for them as they go higher. Less "floor" space as they go up.

Of course not. We all know that no one can beat Americans.

So, to put it another way, at the top of Tier 18 the wing with '18' on it in Embers pic stops and the other 2 wings continue to the top of Tier 19 where the '20' wing stops? Then the final wing '19' continues to the top of Tier 20?
Then the same thing continues with Tiers 21, 22, 23 but with the smaller scale wings within the triangular core section and so on?

So if you like Tier 18 is a full or symmetrical tier with all 3 wings with 21, 24, 27 being the same?
Hi B.

Yes but tier 18 top / first section of tier 19 terrace is where Ember's 20 is ( facing 0 degrees / North ). Yes the symetrical tiers are 18, 21, and 24 as you said but tiers 27 to 30 are circular. As long as you understand a 360 degree directional compass my methodology explains the direction each terrace faces.

"The White Plunger" would have been a great Dubai-style high rise construction
