Please read!
If you wish to use the city or parts of it in your own server/project/video etc., you are free to do so, as long as you mention me in the description of the project. If you fail to do the aforementioned (and moreover if you claim it as your own content), you could be reported for stealing/unoriginality.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are the buildings furnished?
No, except for some fast food joints, gas stations etc. I work on this project alone, so to complete it faster I focus mainly on the exteriors.
What resource pack are you using?
A slightly tweaked version of Soartex Fanver.
What are the co-ordinates for the city centre?
X: 580, Z: -525.
Which versions of Minecraft are compatible with this map?
1.8 and newer.

Check out my blog for higher-res pictures!
http://mattupolis.blogspot.fi/
There is now a dedicated YouTube channel for the project. At the moment it only features videos of the city made by others, but I do plan to make a trailer in the near future, possibly after the next update.

About the project
After ditching my old project Mattula back in December 2011, I decided to start off a clean slate and thus begun to work on the city of Mattupolis. Once complete, the city will consist of a diverse range of commercial, residential and industrial districts.

Mattupolis is a fictional Pacific Northwest -themed city, based mostly on Vancouver, BC and Seattle, WA. My aim is to create a somewhat modern, living, realistic and interesting city environment and not just a bunch of sterile skyscrapers with some roads scattered about.

So far there are 150+ high-rises with more coming up fast, an observation tower based on Seattle's Space Needle, a large urban park with pristine nature right next to the ocean, a huge multi-purpose arena, at least one Tim Hortons or Starbucks per block, a dam and a convention center, only to name a few. As for infrastructure, the city boasts an extensive freeway system, the most important part of it being Mattupolis Beltway. Since New York City was my initial inspiration, the very center of Downtown is loosely based on Times Square. There is also a SkyTrain-inspired subway network under construction, and an airport is in the plans.

From the looks of it right now, I will only furnish a few select buildings, as I barely have enough spare time to build the exteriors to begin with. I would like to see this project completed within the next couple years, not 20 years from now ;) More pictures will be uploaded as the city grows (Keep track of my blog, the link is above!). I also have plans on making a trailer video of sorts at some point.

Cities that inspire me
Vancouver (BC), Seattle (WA), Victoria (BC), Kelowna (BC), Portland (OR), Toronto (ON), New York (NY), Asheville (NC), Stockholm (SE), Santiago de Chile (CL), Hamburg (DE)

Please ignore the progress percentage, it's not accurate. I don't really know yet how large the city will be when it's complete.

This is a really nice map and everything, but in the next couple updates, could you focus more on interiors than making new things? I could help with furnishing if it is needed.

Well, at this point it's too early to promise anything. I recently began my service in the Finnish army, but I may be able to work on Mattupolis on weekends, which I get to spend at home. Let's just say there might be an update in 2017 :)
