This building possesses night time only lighting, item mass storage and auto ore smelting for your convenience. It is not without its creature comforts either, you can pick up a train leaving from here, you can tour the glassed in roof top garden or you can take advantage of the Sl!ppy water-brake drop-chute (Sl1pg8r from youtube designed this as far as I know) so that you may begin mining next to the bedrock.

On top of all of that, items which do not belong in this building's storage system will be picked up and all of the mining done at remote mine sites can be shipped back to this facility for sorting and smelting.

Note: To ensure best placement with as little hassle as possible, choose a location which has the ground level at level 83. This will prevent the build from protruding from the ground like some strange rectangular cube.


Due to some omissions in the original, this project has been updated with corrections (2/1/15)
-Finished lighting the build to prevent mob spawn inside
-Added bedrock level item drop point
-Removed errant command block
-Patched top of dome
-Added remaining passenger train station components

When loading the schematic using World Edit, the chests spawn unconnected and that stops the system from functioning..   by The_Real_ADOBO

I will give this a go. I haven't had much luck with sorting systems they always get clogged but I hope this works. Thank you I will repost my thoughts after I test it out.   by alucracker

The hopper and chest system seems wonky in the current version, and I'm not good enough on redstone systems to be able to figure the problem out. Otherwise it's a handsome piece of work.   by DancingOnTheAshes

Is it ok if I use the item transport pipe design for one of my own builds? Over all it's a really good build. I was never expecting to see a thing in minecraft that items just float up without pistons or redstone.   by Russicat
