Wow! 128 high is the limit?

I didn't expect it to be so low!  I am starting a massive construction and was doing the pre-planning.  So I stacked up dirt and 128 was the highest build point.  And sea level is 64 so that limits building to 63 blocks?  Woof.  I will have to redesign one of my buildings as it won't fit.

I also found my Z maxed out at 420 to the south.  That right?  Seems a weird number given everything else in Minecraft seems to be powers of 2.  I would have thought it would be 512 or 256.

yeah, from sea level, it's 63 blocks to the sky.

and the world is like 840x840, not 1024.  Not sure why they didn't stick to to a power of 2 number which would be very PC.

840?  What an odd figure to settle on.  Well at this point then, the main structure I am building will cover 1/8th of the map!  Lucky I decided to build it at the lower edge :)

Due to the limit, I decided to go with a reverse bent pyramid instead of a standard one.  Instead of being a sharper angle at the start then shallower at the bend like the real Egyptian one, I went the other way.  Shallower at the lower (1 up for every 3 in) then steeper toward the middle (1 for 1).   From the ground it will have the appearance of an obelisk on top of a pyramid base.  I was wanting to build a 100x100x100 pyramid and I wasn't relishing the thought of filling 100x100x40 with sand to get rid of the water blocks and then digging it all back out again.  I still stuck with 100x100 base (actually 99x99 so it would be odd and have a cap block) but snuck it in at 55 high using the bent format which still allows it to float in air.
