This is the Fortress of Armengar, a mighty city in front of Alyxandor's Castle. This city was constructed by Zaralith and Vashti, with assistance from Halucid and Doomworks. Current buildings in the city (soon to be removed :() are created by Atka and Leefield. This great fortress was designed to be invincible, with a portcullis that can be opened from the tower and unbreakable walls. The walls hold a secret defense that protects them down to sea level or below. The city was designed on Zar's Awesome server (by Zaralith) because there were a great number of houses that people were building merely to sell to other members of the server. Because of this, a plan was created to build a second city (since Central Heights, with a mayor of Doomworks, already exists).
There was a beautiful site near the Temple that Swarmer made and so it was decided that a fortress would be errected there for the purpose of having size limited houses that people would only be allowed to create and own one of within the city. Alyxandor actually started his castle project the day before ground was to be broken on the city, and so it has been linked to the city using the walkway that Alyx built (Silly Alyx, reading my mind). The land was carved (since there was a terrain generator change on the site) to allow the walls to be built and Zaralith and Vashti made them strong, tall, and solid, adding many towers around the wall. The city was then completely leveled on the inside (some fabulous work by Vashti) and resurface with dirt so that a great field could grow. A while later, Doomworks helped create a connection to the main train system that has its hub in Central Heights.
After another long period of no work, some members were whitelisted and requested a place to live, so the actual layout of the inside of the Fortress of Armengar was created. This layout started out with a single set of 3 plots, which were later decided to be too large for the city and shrunk, requiring some notes be left on signs at the warp for important reasons because people had rushed at the chance to build there. A spa building was constructed when some caves were found underneath the city containing natural springs. This happened as a result of terraforming, since the terrain generator changed across this site, leading to a very high cliff that has been flattened. The terraforming is still in progress and has had help from Alyxandor, Hibbsi, Vashti, and Doomworks.
Currently outlined and planned are several plots, which are vacant, a marketplace, a large fountain located across from the train station, a garden/park located around the station, a town hall located on the other side of the fountain with statues out front facing Alyxandor's Castle, and a bank, with a fountain 'inside'. There are plans for a small forest area behind the bank, if necessary, and a mine entrance in the north-east corner. A dock may be added outside along the road towards the castle.
Created on Zar's Awesome Server. Walls were created with materials from the Moria excavations.

You can totally tell I am a computer engineer from that title. Anyway, this city is currently in the design phase, which is mostly placing plots for the personal houses of whoever moves in, and building the public buildings. I have currently built several plots and outlined a few of the public buildings. The bank is currently in progress and with the help of Leefield and Sliders, I have a design for the bank vaults using pistons, even though there is a moving bridge plugin on the server. The hidden bank chests project can be found here. Also, I have updated the description of the project to include the standard I will ban you (from my server) statement if you post whitelist applications as a comment on my projects.
