Description

This is a Minecraft representation of this well known landmark in Seattle, Washington State, United States.

Other Minecraft versions of this structure exist but this is possibly the first attempt at the actual three-legged tower, (most other M.C. versions seem to have four legs to fit easily into the rectilinear world of Minecraft). Here the actual three legged structure was attempted and a moderately "pixelated" result was obtained which is barely acceptable..

The inside is very simple, unlike the real structure which contains many rooms and circular corridors. The main determining factor on the level of detail here was the height of the structure...which was from about Y=64, (i.e. the surface at sea level) right up to Y=256, the top of the buildable space. Once the height had been defined, the diameter and other horizontal dimensions were then determined by the aspect ratio of the real structure. This limited the internal volume to such an extent it was not worth (or even really possible) trying to re-create the the interior to follow the floor plan of the real structure.
If, at some future time Mojang decide to raise the map height limit to 512 then an interior faithful to the real structure might be possible.

There is a teleport command block up the top, behind the ladder duct that will need re-programming.

Think carefully before you use the word, "better"...it is the sort of word a Politician or Advertising Man would use when he makes you want to think he is telling you something, but in fact is telling you nothing at all.
"We want to make things better!"
"Better than what?", "Better for whom?"
I can be sure that your version will have certain advantages and merits this version does not and visa-versa. If you obtain some of the advantageous merits from this version by downloading it then you have gained something...ideas, ideas you can possibly use in future builds!
