ROMECRAFT COLISEUM

(Now properly in white!)


This is one of the many buildings constructed in the late City of Romecraft and Augusta projects, but it is so large that it deserves its own project! (Be aware, it only really looks good using the Romecraft texture pack)

We built a 1:1 accurate depiction of a ancient Colosseum, starting with the 456 outer, main support columns (we could not get the correct number of columns due to Minecraft restrictions, but 456 is enough). The column layout, and overall design of this Colosseum is directly copied and influenced from the real Coliseum in Rome. The interior portions of the arena is slightly different in Romecraft, however, since it was never meant to be the actual Coliseum and was built for a server a while back.

The real Colosseum has support columns 4m thick, we had to use 3m thick columns in order to compensate for the fact that our columns are entirely square and unable to be rotated as they are placed around the curve.

This Coliseum is 189 x 156 x 48 meters (blocks) in dimensions. The structure is a perfect ellipse (as perfect as it can be using cubes), as far as I can tell.

If downloaded and edited, please give credit to me for the basic design and construction!

Update #11 : 08/03/2013 11:50:46 pm8/03/13

Now updated with the new pictures. Coliseum is now in WHITE, not gray!

Update #10 : 08/02/2013 1:25:54 am8/02/13

Now in white! Though the photos dont reflect that, because PMC crashes for me when I try!

Update #9 : 09/16/2011 9:19:09 am9/16/11

Improved and trimmed schematic so it is easier to place. No more giant spires and half-trees in this schematic!

Update #8 : 08/09/2011 11:36:37 pm8/09/11

I am releasing the incomplete Colosseum (no underground, no tunnels) as a schematic and a world save!

This version contains the entire colosseum, its statues, the emperor's box, the gladiator's entrance, and the gateways to the underground!

Of course, it looks like a circus tent without the Romecraft texture pack. It can be viewed other ways, but it was designed using my texture pack.

Update #7 : 08/01/2011 6:21:48 pm8/01/11

Added some statues to the Gladiator entrance. I like them, but any spectators behind them cannot see!

Update #6 : 07/31/2011 9:22:15 pm7/31/11

The gladiator's entrance is close to done (if not done already). I am done with all the staircases finally. After the Emperor's seating, royal stairs, and the 2 remaining gates, I will tell H07Hawk to make all the dungeons, and underground workings, since I am done with this project for now at that point.

Update #5 : 07/31/2011 1:53:12 pm7/31/11

Exterior almost done, interior well on its way :)

Update #4 : 07/30/2011 6:37:10 pm7/30/11

Working on staircases, seating, and colors for the Colosseum now. What a pain!

Update #3 : 07/29/2011 2:37:59 pm7/29/11

Finally started working on this thing again. Third layer done.

Update #2 : 03/24/2011 6:23:30 pm3/24/11

Arena floor is done (though no pictures) and is actually a two-layer spleef arena >.>

Might change, we'll see!

Update #1 : 03/23/2011 10:41:34 pm3/23/11

Second level of the one side is nearly done. First level on the other half is still under construction!

It was built before creative existed, about a year ago, using mainly server commands. Blocks were spawned in.

It is based off of the coliseum in Rome. But it is only based on it, it's not a recreation of it.

get MCedit, open your level, then you have an option to load a schematic. choose this file and save the map.
if you want a fully explained tutorial just search youtube "MCedit - schematics" or something like that.

I love it! and i have a suggestion, if, that is, they update the finite liquid mod.
i remember that the colosseum was also used for ship battles, they had a system, a very complex one, that let them fill it iwth water, for the ships (minecraft boats with people in it xD) to battle in. is it possible when or if they update it to add a water system for filling it? just a suggestion.

Thank you. I tried to design it as a functional building, with almost every viewpoint checked so that every stand has some kind of vision to the center arena. I eliminated my bolder entrances and lowered the Gladiator's entrance because of this. It ended up giving it a very "Realistic" look. Unfortunately my giant statues kind of take away from that look, but I like them too much now.

You should make the passages that is under the sandfloor, and you should make several pistonelevators all over the floor like the original. and at last it should also have the ability to flood the floor like the real one did ;) just suggestions
