    Procedural Metropolis: recap!

    After 5 days from its release, let's do a recap of the situation :)
    The Procedural Metropolis has been a real success, having already reached more than 100 diamonds and almost 500 downloads.
    Can you imagine all the different cities that exist right now in the world?

    Thanks again for all the comments, messages and positive feedback received, it really makes it worth it!

    The Hall of Fame
    Also, there's already a name on the Hall of Fame!
    Congratulations to icheb42 who succeeded in finding the "THING" I hid in the vast city. He has been very smart and persistent in winning in less than 24 hrs after the release.
    Will others be able to succeed too?

    The presentation stream is now also available on youtube, in case you missed it!

    Now what?
    Well, the city is complete, but there are still some things I'd like to add, like decorations on the roads and I also want to experiment and optimize certain advanced configurations of the whole architecture, this to increase house shape variety and the whole structure of the average road network.

    But before that, I'm working on another project, a smaller one. I can't tell you much for now because it's still quite secret, but it isn't a self replicating machine, technically, it's something new, never seen before for sure. I'm still not sure about what to do with it but I see potential. I would've never thought to see in this game something like what I'm witnessing now in the KS project.

    See you soon,

    Procedural Metropolis release and presentation stream!

    Keep calm! The city is not finished yet, and there's still a lot to do for me.
    Anyway, I estimate that it'll be completed in a week!
    I'm planning to do a short presentation this Friday on twitch, just before the release:
    Since the work is not done yet, other news will follow in the next days.

    Here's the official list of all the 342 builds included into the city:

    List of Procedural Metropolis Buildings

    And here is the gallery with all the respective certificates of admission:

    Happy Friday, everyone!

    We've mentioned it before but wanted to reach out through a wall post just in case you missed it.

    Has a submission caught your eye this week? An art blog, skin, project, or pack? Perhaps your particularly proud of your own creation. Maybe you have a funny Minecraft joke or comic! PM us! Tell us a little bit about why that specific submission caught your eye or what you like about it. We will consider adding it to the weekly, which is typically published every Saturday over on the PMC News Forum!

    Hope you all have a great weekend.

    I have been working for more than a year on my adventure map The Trial of Air that got finished just this week. I have been experiencing some trouble getting the word out to people who might want to play it. It is an absolute work of love since I'm a stay at home dad that has barely an hour every day to do any minecraft. I was just so inspired by the Legend of Zelda games that I have tried, in some small way, to achieve the same quality of game play in a minecraft map. I think that what makes my map special, is the amount of work that I have put into making the trial look as impressive as I possibly could. With a main atrium that spans maximum world height, the Trial of Air is as big of an adventure map as you will ever see. Link:

    Contest results... and admissions to the Infinity Project!

    Yesterday the Procedural Metropolis - Contemporary edition contest finally concluded and the final leaderboard has been revealed.
    Congratulations to Creation Manufactory, Sketchzi and window456123 for taking the first three places, and my compliments also to all the other fantastic submissions!
    Anyways, the fun is not over yet: check your private messages, those of you which have been selected to be part of the
    Infinity Project will have received one of these certificates of admission, they come with a unique serial number too.
    Be warned, it'will require some time to prepare a city with so many buildings, but I'll keep you updated regularly via wall posts.
    Let the assembly of the procedural metropolis begin!

    Hello everybody!
    I'm writing this to inform you that I'm finalizing the last details of the Infinity engine that I'm preparing for the Procedural Metropolis project contest! At the moment I'm performing some fine tuning and generating a batch of testing worlds to see if I'm satisfied with the final result in terms of urban tissue structure.

    At the moment the engine contains only my example builds, but in the future the city will be filled with the buildings of all the admitted participants, who knows, yours maybe :)

    Please notice the Seed, that generated everything in the present world.

    Last night I was looking through banners and a few things needed to change. So, I made several updates today.
    • There are 4 banners per row instead of 3 for the "card" view
    • Diamonds can be given from the listings.
    • Banners can be filtered to show Survival Friendly. aka. 6 layers or less
    • /give code dialog updated with one click copy to clipboard buttons for Banner & Shield codes
    • Revamped forms to use cleaner design format that is on other submission forms
    • and misc tweaks to icons, UI design, etc.
    There are some real works of art in that section!

    Nate the Penguin replied to Cyprezz's comment below 2020-04-26 13:02:18
    A quick idea I wanted to ask about was adding a gallery for items. Custom swords, axes, fishing poles, ect. I know that would take some time, have you guys considered doing that?
    Cyprezz replied to Nate the Penguin's comment below 2020-04-25 00:12:56
    Cool and thanks! It's rewarding to see everyone having fun here. It's also motivating to make updates that instantly have an impact on many. It's nice to update, get instant feedback, positive or negative and then update again to address it until it feels right. I tend to bounce around a lot and this mini-update delayed a more technical one that I should have been working on. Oh well, next week. Fun fact, banners are the second most submitted content type on PMC! ~220+ per day. Actually, third if you count wall posts. See you around!

    Hi PMCer's! We're thrilled with the response we've received from the Procedural Metropolis Project Contest! Gheppio updated the FAQ section of the contest description as well as the official forum thread to include the most common question's we've received. If you have a question, it's likely answered in the updated FAQ so please take a moment to read it :)

    We're seeing some great entries so far and are excited to see more! Happy building!

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Can I build more than six houses?
    No, at the moment 6 houses, and one submission, per person is the limit.

    Do I have to build interiors too?
    It’s highly recommended.

    Is there a specific style we should build in?
    The city generation will create paved roads, so anything "Contemporary" will make sense. We wanted to keep the theme as open as possible while ultimately generating cities that will make sense.

    Why are there slab borders and building limits in general?
    Slab borders are needed for house spacing, that’s why you must leave them, and the air above them, as they are. They are on two sides only, this is correct; you can build up to the edge of the other two sides. It’s suggested to fill the surroundings of the buildings with the same slabs because that's the city's pavement, in this way the builds are better integrated into the city layout :-)

    What about water, is it allowed?
    In some rare cases it may cause problems when houses are placed by the structure blocks; anyway, water is allowed. If water presents glitches in the rotated instances, it will probably glitch also in the final city! If possible. Try containing water pools only with solid blocks, and not with stairs or slabs only; they're the ones which glitch the most. If not possible, replace glitching water blocks with ice that it will melt down after your house is placed. If there are still some glitches or problems, they’ll be corrected before their integration in the Infinity Matrix.

    Are we allowed to incorporate command blocks and redstone into our builds?
    It's better to avoid complex circuits, while they should work fine, I'm afraid that if too many people build complex circuits that "do stuff" in their build, than this will make the machine much heavier to run on low spec PCs.

    I don't want to risk that some people aren't able to generate their cities with your builds included because of this problem! If you want to do a special lighting system with redstone or a teleporting elevator with command blocks it’s ok, but try to stay contained and absolutely avoid automatic machines! Your devices must be user-activated!

    What about the streets? How are they made? I’d like to make a parking lot or a building with road access…
    The roads are 7 blocks wide, 3 blocks per lane and 1 for the centreline. Roads are made of the grey terracotta already present in the building sites, at the same level, pavements are made of the same stone slabs of the 2-side border, at its same level.

    If you’re building something that needs a road access (e.g. like a parking lot) place the road-sized entrance/access aligned with the "entrance here" passage for 1x1, 2x1, 1x3 and 2x3 plots. For 1x2 and 2x2 instead, put it on the middle of the left or right chunk. In this way I can reprogram roads so that they connect correctly to your car entrances when your builds are placed in the city!

    Are the items in chests, furnaces, dispensers, etc. saved in the Infinity Matrix too?

    Can I use paintings, banners, custom player heads etc.?
    As a rule of thumb, if something appears correctly also in the rotated instances, then it can be used.
    Paintings and item frames sadly can’t be used for now. Banners and custom player heads work flawlessly.

    Does the front door have to function, or can it be an open glass door?
    It doesn't have to necessarily be a door! It's just a constraint that sets where the front of the building is, so that the engine makes your builds facing towards the roads correctly. More like a "the door should be here" indication, intend it as "people will access this area arriving from here". After that you can put the entrance you want, of even something else! For example, in the largest plot, you could even put two small buildings on the left and right side and a small plaza in the centre, that would work too!

    Will my builds appear together in the final city?
    The city will contain as many submissions as possible from participants, so there will be houses/buildings from different people close to each other, a city from the PMC community!

    Any generated town will be different and potentially infinite, in some of them your builds will be closer, and in others more distanced, and every building integrated in the Infinity Matrix will have a defined probability to appear during the generation Process. Consider all that is being created here as a single neighbourhood!

    Did Gheppio design the procedural Infinity engine by himself?

    We'd like to take some time to say thank you for all the awesome stuff you all share with the community! We know how hard all of you work and how much creativity and time goes into every creation posted on Planet Minecraft.

    Unfortunately, there are some people that would like to use your hard work for their personal or financial gain. While it can be exciting that someone wants your permission to share your content, it's worth taking some time to look into where your content is actually going. Sometimes, they don't even ask for your permission. Not cool.

    The most common dishonest requests ask to use something you made for a different version of Minecraft or to re-upload content to another website or app without fully explaining how your content will used. Sometimes these are harmless, open and honest requests by people wanting to promote your work with credit to a community that speaks another language. Sometimes the person just wants to personally use your creation in another version of Minecraft or highlight it in a Youtube video. What's important is that you know how your work will be used and that proper credits are given. Sometimes the main reason the person wants the content you spent considerable time and effort to create is to make a profit off of it and could care less about crediting and promoting the real content creator, you.

    Here are a few things you can do to protect yourself and your creations:

    Step 1 : Documentation
    Upload your creation to Planet Minecraft as soon as it is ready and before you share it with anyone else. Doing this gives you something super important that proves you were the one who made what you're sharing: a date and time attached to exactly when your creation was first shared. This timestamp and any other documentation helps prove ownership.

    Tip: If you don't want to share your post publicly, you can still protect your content with this step! Create your submission but uncheck "Publish Live". This will draft your post so only you can see it!

    Step 2 : Consider a License
    Register your creation for a Creative Commons License. You might be familiar with this already as you might have seen it on other posts already. It's a simple step that allows you to express exactly when and how your creation should be used by others. You can get started on creating your CC License here:

    Note: legally you are the owner of any skin or texture you make regardless the license you may put in place for it. Posting to PMC for timestamp reasons is a great way to protect and prove! Technically, the right to any skin or texture is the same as a painter having the right to their painting. Painters use canvases and so do you! Just in a different medium! There's a great article on The Informed Illustrator regarding digital art & copywright law that's worth reading if you need clarity on this subject.

    Step 3 : Knowledge
    If someone asks you if they can use something you made, do a bit of research! Something as simple as visiting that person's profile here or on their linked social media pages may help you determine if they mean well. Be cautious of new members reaching out to you who have empty profiles, no linked accounts and no posts here. Ask questions when people request to use your work such as where it will be posted, how it will be credited and who will see your work. Make sure you are getting credit for your own work and that it won't be put behind advertising links, sold or behind paid access.

    Step 4 : Common sense
    Listen to your gut! You have every right to say no and you don't have to have a reason why. Saying no doesn't mean you're selfish or mean. If something doesn't feel right and you think someone might be dishonest, don't give them permission.

    Step 5 : Raise Awareness
    Learn more and get involved in protecting your work and others. Share these steps. Helping others understand how to protect themselves can be just as important as protecting yourself. Awareness sites like have been helping this cause for years!

    We hope that this helps you protect yourself and your work. Your creations are valuable and so are you!

    Happy Crafting,
    Planet Minecraft Team

    Oh, hey! Cyprezz and I are busy harvesting honey for Minecraft's Honey Bottle Challenge!
    The goal is to reach 50 million honey bottles this weekend. If we do, Minecraft will make a donation to the World Wildlife Fund to help save the bees!


    Pro tip: make sure there are no bees in the hive before collecting. Learned the hard way!

    Now, back to work! Who's participating?!
