Black Mountain

Black Mountain viewed from the air at night.

Black Mountain is a massive mesa-top complex built primary from black basalt with Tron-style light piping. Its eight distinct levels are linked by a huge central shaft, at the bottom of which is a beacon useless diamond pyramid because Tekkit is run by slow-ass bastards still running Minecraft 1.2.5 at its core.

Black Mountain is not accessible by foot, and requires either flight or creative climbing skills to access.

NOTE: Please don't build or leave torches around Black Mountain, it's built as an island of light for a reason.
