History

Space Valkyria was built by a player named JackTheRippa, and was the biggest End base in all of 2b2t history. Space Valkyria was built thousands of blocks out so no one would find it. Construction was mainly made possible because Jacktherippa had several infinites; rare glitched blocks which were able to be placed more than once. As the base steadily progressed and expanded, JackTheRippa started to invite more players to his base. Along with the base, he would collect and store player heads at Space Valkyria, essentially starting the first museum on 2b2t.

Once Update 1.9, widely known as the Combat Update, was released, c1yd3i and jared2013 betrayed JackTheRippa, and Withered the base[1]. The two griefers, using iTristan's backdoor access, teleported to Space Valkyria almost instantly and created an End Portal back to the Overworld. Almost all of Space Valkyria was destroyed beyond repair, and it still remains in that condition to this day. The only known person who had found Space Valkyria other than people invited before the grief was Fit[2] on accident in 2015. After he took a look around, he continued his journey into the End for his own project, the DFC. The 4th Reich also paid a visit to Space Valkyria and griefed its remains as much as they could[3]. Jack, however, gave out an un-griefed world download for the general public in Fit's short cinematic video on Space Valkyria. The download can be found on Planet Minecraft.

Operation: Treasure Planet

Space Valkyria was originally conceived before end portals were re-enabled on 2b2t under the title Operation: Treasure Planet. The objective was to create a base that was impossible to find. Using hacked end portal frames, a portal was placed in a hidden location. Being one of few active end portals on the server at the time, it severely limited possibility for griefing until end portals were re-enabled.

Architecture

This base contained many floors, all of which served a specific distinct purpose. Its lighting system was unique, consisting of several beacons hanging from the ceiling as a light source, instead of using more traditional ways such as torches or glowstone. The uppermost floor consisted of multiple farms and an Overworld-like environment. The uppermost level also contained a large length of glass, reaching from the central tower to the borders of the outer wall, possibly signifying the biome below was eventually meant to be wholly encased in glass.
