    Wip May/June 2012 Lite Entry: A Glass Tower

    I need one more iron in the fire like another hole in my head ... but I just can't resist.

    So I want to build something like this plan (The Pantheon):

    Coming along very nicely. I bet this design would look quite pretty as a scaled-down model... if you ever feel like building one.

    Are you going to add color to the glass?

    I agree with Chashio. I think Low opacity tints over the glass would make this already great map really POP!
