Neverending palace 3rd step
This is the tower, the third step of the neverending palace. I angled the previous shot specifically to keep the tower out of it. Can you believe that I didn't even know about the "fill" command until I started building this thing? It isn't even the first tower I've built! You may notice a slightly off block near the top. That is a block that has a sign on it, a sign with a very special message.

No, this is not the end, but I haven't really made the next part yet, just this... so far.
Neverending palace 2nd step
This is the second step. But only the small building in the immediate center, the ENTIRE rest of it to the back and to the right is ALL for calculating, taking an input from 3 switches and turn them into an output for any number of 45 doors in that small area. Between organizational problems, identification problems and general glitches, it took WAY too long to get it done.

To the left of the middle is a long stretch, a collection of rooms that you can access from the previous maze. these chambers (multiple entrances per chamber) each have switches that affect other chambers. As such, you need to flip all of the switches, forcing you to enter and reenter the maze multiple times, probably going through each of the 8 combinations in order to proceed.

This will take you to the lava palace which is similar to the beginning but without the sandstone.
Neverending palace, beginning
This is a screenshot of the neverending palace. Specifically, this is a shot of where the player(s) begin, it's built in the "redstone ready" superflat preset, so I used sandstone and lava for decoration. The player(s) gets down via a shaft of water in the middle. The whole thing as been spaced out, if they jump they'll take falling damage and land in the lava. The only way to go... is forward. The next challenge has a gate with randomly placed floor panels. There are several panels that will close the gate in front of them, there are also a few random panels that will open it. The state remains until the opposite panel is hit. So, if you want to go through, hit an "opening" panel and DON'T hit any more.

Next... you go into the neverending palace proper.
Minecraft, neverending palace
This must be the third or fourth time I've tried recreating a concept I've had (and first tried to create) back when I was still playing the Xbox-360 Console edition.

Neverending Palace is a dark palace made almost entirely out of Nether Bricks. This latest room is a recreation of a much larger one that was much less well organized and REALLY hard to put together.

a wide chamber divided up into 5x5 rooms. Including the entrance hallway there are 45 doors (the "exit doors" can't be closed) and there are 3 switches. The 3 switches have 8 combinations... 000, 001, 010, 011, 100, 101, 110, 111. So, 45 doors to either open or close based on any of 8 combinations.

To the right of the mass and jumble you can see a platform sticking out, that's my "Chessboard" miniture (I call it that because it's mostly smooth quartz and black concrete, giving it a chessboard appearance where I have the rooms in miniature size. The colored concrete to the left is to represent each room. Each room gets two colors, red, yellow, green, blue, and purple. The top color represents the horizontal, you may notice the closest colors have a "black/black" pillar beneath them, that black/black represents the entrance hallway. The bottom color represents the vertical. If that's not confusing enough, each path gets two sets of colors, because they represent a door BETWEEN two rooms. And yes, the chessboard uses the two-colors-for-a-room system as well.

The project does take a good deal of time but it's also not as slow going as you might think. This is room number 4 (not counting the entrance) and each room features a puzzle. I'm also not counting the side alcove that is designed to trigger if it gets dark outside, closing the main hallway and opening a side closet with a bed inside. This is in case the player(s) get bogged down with time and need to get past night. Of course with so much happening indoors the day/night cycle is a little moot.
