Another Portal Room

The portal room for my underground, redstone-powered base is now done! I used the same general shape as my last underground base's portal room. The path to it is long not just to be dramatic. I also need it to be far enough from other rooms that I won't hear the whining of the portal.

Don't worry, the dirt will turn to grass eventually.

In front of the portal, over the stairs, I managed a decent design for the ceiling.

Here's what it looks like as you ascend the stairs.

The smooth stone is a bit of a deviation from my general pattern, but it adds depth to the build. I bet a lot of time will be spent going through the base looking for ways to make it look even nicer. I recently found a mesa biome, so I could perhaps color code portions of the base.

Finally, a view from the portal itself.
