Fontaine’s Department Store was one of the largest known retail establishments in Rapture run and owned by Frank Fontaine. It was used to showcase products from his various businesses. The central building, the Department Store, sold customers items of clothing while offering residents recreational areas like Rapture on Ice, an artificial ice skating rink. The store is connected to the two other buildings floating at its side by a tram moving along flexible rails.

This building was created for the needs of my project, that’s why there’s wool behind the windows, no proper interior and the backside of the building was slightly modified. The glass colours may also slightly differ from the real ones. It’s also really out of scale due to Minecraft’s sky limit. Here it’s not underwater but in the future I will try to place it properly in a deep sea abyss where it belongs. If you wish to edit it, feel free to do so, but please message me or tell me you did that so I can check it. Thank you!
The interior of the building will be created later as a separate location accessible by command blocks. That’s caused by the scale limitations!
Minerva’s Den Central Computing has also graciously offered a set of picture that shows how players without the newest shader technology will see this project.
