This is a list of questions i Regularly have to attend to, hopefully this will reduce the questions asked somwhat.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Forbidden City,Centerpieceof Project 1845, containing 4.2 Million blocks was built 100% legit and was the slowest time of construction. The rest of the project will contain 2.096 Billion Blocks and will be spawned blocks. A minority of it will be worldedited but over 600,000 buildings will be unique making worldedit for a large majority of the entire project impossible to use. I have never claimed the project is done 100% legit and here is why:
If we did the ENTIRE project 1845 100% legit then we will need 15 users working on the project 40 hours a week EACH for 7 days a week for 95 years. Now, do you call spawned blocks cheating? no, making this legit will take over a century. This would be literally condemningpeople to work more than an entire lifetime to build it legit, call spawned items cheating on the project and this is why I will ban you, I don't have patience anymore for sh*tstirring.
and yes, project 1845 is composed of at least 4independentprojects dating from 1600 - 1945.

This is a special bungee server, this means you can login with a 1.7.4 client while the server is still a 1.6.4 server and world-saves. you can still login with a 1.6.4 client if you have special mods but this is to stop restricting players who keep updated.
Update #125 : 11/12/2013 12:37:02 am11/12/13
Since the previous snapshot available last July we have completed over 0.5% of the projects total completion. That's still another 12 million blocks of content added in the past 4 months!!

24th Snapshot - July 2013 - Out Now!
Download via the usual way. Since the last one we reached 5% complete with a lot of new renovation work done on the Forbidden City section plus more farmland. Things have been busy recently, setting things up for the 2 year anniversary which is Tomorrow!!
Update #117 : 07/10/2013 11:40:49 pm7/10/13
New 2 Year Anniversary Video & 5% Complete.
1st year we completed 1.9% while in our second year we completed 3.1%, next year we should do another 5 - 7% and so on, steadily completing it faster and faster every year.
Also, the new youtube video on the project page is a flyover of the entire imperial axis, which is very long but shows a lot of good parts. From now on, we will produce one of these flyovers at least once a year, that way you can compare changes, additions and renovations. Enjoy :)
Update #116 : 07/07/2013 9:04:23 pm7/07/13
We have just surpassed 100,000 downloads of worldsaves on our PMC page. Thank you so much for your support everyone. :)

Update #110 : 03/16/2013 6:54:04 am3/16/13
It has also been shrunk a lot more. no longer 200mb+ download but less than 50mb now.
It can still be uncompressed by any Operating system. No uncompression software is required like winzip, stuffit or winrar. Just Right Click > Extract/Unpack!!
Once uncompressed it is no longer 2.5gb but a small 480mb. No content has been lost, this has been a back-end optimization to reduce download size.

Update #108 : 02/23/2013 5:04:07 am2/23/13
Update #107 : 02/21/2013 10:33:24 pm2/21/13
Remember. Dont be afraid of downloading such a big map. its been tested and if you can run minecraft, it will run this map. It isnt as laggy as some projects out there like the survival games maps.
Update #106 : 02/19/2013 5:08:24 pm2/19/13
New Snapshot Download
February's snapshot has been uploaded and ready for public download. We have fixed the map size error and the download is a cool 90mb smaller. Enjoy :)
Patch 1.5 Changes
In preparation to patch 1.5 coming out to Minecraft we have these changes planned.
- You will be able to download the map, texturepack and installation instructions all in one place.
- We will be leaving sourceforge and joining mediafire to make it easier to download
- New telelport system that will work in singleplayer will be completed in-game
- A new website of information will be made live to help players.
Update #105 : 02/18/2013 6:14:39 am2/18/13
New Snapshot download
Yes, January's snapshot is uploaded. this took so long partly because I forgot and that its much larger. Instead of 95mb in size and expands to 2.2gb it is 271mb downloaded and 4.5gb expanded.
Dont worry about lag though, if your computer has minecraft, it can play this map it just might take a while to get it set up..
