Hi. I'm the Hierophant, and this is my project - Age of Minecraft.

Now, as you can probably guess, this project will revolve around me doing structures from one of the Age of Empires series, particularly, Age of Mythology. Main idea is to replicate buildings from AoM into minecraft using nothing, but blocks, some commands on occasion and sheer dedication. I've seen some people do this before, but never someone who came close to replicating the entire plethora of AoM structures. I have no clue how long this will take, though, but I sure am excited to be working on such a big project. :D

Before we begin, some things I'd like to establish:
  • There's total of five civilizations in AoM (including all of the extensions) - Greeks, Egyptians, Norse, Atlanteans and Chinese. Each culture will get its spotlight.
  • Not all of the buildings are gonna be featured, however. If a building is exclusive for the Editor, certain campaigns or certain random maps, they won't be here. (Only exception are separate statues of Major Gods, it saves a whole bunch of space to make them separately)
  • Neither will be summonable buildings that come from God powers and whatnot. No Plenty Vaults, Healing Fountains, Underworld Passages or Citadels.
  • No walls. That's just a personal preference, seeing how there's about 11 different wall types
  • The structures in AoM follow a certain proportion system, where buildings take a square space consisting of "tiles", for example, a town center takes 16 tiles, a house takes 4 and a tower takes 1. These tiles are represented by the black-yellow net on the minecraft field and are equal to 9x9 blocks.
  • I really wanna build atlantean structures sooner, but it's not gonna be feasible without 1.13's prismarine stairs and slabs. :C
  • AoM marks buildings with player's color in certain places. I'm keeping that in, but assigning each civilization with its own color: Blue for Greeks, Yellow for Egyptians, Green for Norse, Cyan for Atlanteans and Red for Chinese.
Now that this is done, let's begin. So far this is what I've got.

Current Building count: 71/113 (62.83%)
Current Tile count: 461/1814 (25.41%)

Detailed description of AoM buildings size
Towers, Major God Statues, Monuments to Priests, Soldiers and Laborers are 1x1 tiles or 9x9 blocks or smaller

Non-atlantean houses, drop-off sites and Monument to Pharaohs are 2x2 tiles or 19x19 blocks or smaller

Docks, Monuments to Gods, Economic Guild, atlantean Manors, chinese Garden, Oranos' Sky Passage and Lighthouse are 3x3 tiles or 29x29 blocks or smaller

Fortress, Migdol Stronghold, Hill Fort, Palace and Castle are 5x5 tiles or 49x49 blocks or smaller.

Wonders are 8x8 tiles and 79x79 blocks or smaller.

Everything else is 4x4 tiles or 39x39 blocks or smaller.

Entire map fits on 43x43 tile spaces

20 Update Logs

Rest in Pixels... : 10/13/2018 6:02:40 amOct 13th

Hey there. Bad news tonight. It's about a month since the last update and not only I have had no time to make anything, but the computer I used to work on has been ABSOLUTELY WIPED, and that includes my world in which I worked in. No back ups, no traces of the world anywhere...


And the plan is to buy a new computer and rebuild the whole thing again. .-.
Well, at least, it's better to have a PC I have full control over and that runs minecraft. Cuz right now I don't have one. However, it's gonna be just a couple of months for me to get one. Sounds rough, but better than nothing at all.

After I'm done getting a new PC, I very much doubt I will have found a way to retrieve much in terms minecraft worlds... or any files to begin with... So I'm gonna have to rebuild all of it, again.

Well, that's really all for now. I have some retail work to do in order to earn money. See you in December, approxiamately. The project isn't cancelled, just delayed c:

Any new photos are coming right after I build a new structure. They're uploaded into the imgur gallery a bit before I post the update log and such. I will do an overhaul in order to make some changes to screenshots at some point in the future tho, but for now, just use the album in the post

If you want to use some of my AoM Wonder I would allow this to you. Sadly I cannot not offer more than this five because of the 1.13 Update; so I cannot open my world with McEdit anymore. I know they are not built for your planned size but if they help you; use it and mod it the way you want to ;)

Theoreticly I have also finished Odin & Isis's Wonders but - well the McEdit problem...
Have no idea for the Wonders' of Zeus, Thor & Loki. There are tow things I am very bad at. First huge selfbuild trees and second statues. Ships may work but not all times. The worst ships on my RP-World were built by myself ;(

Why thank you, kind soul :D
But... I have to decline. The stuff that is here is build solely by me, although I may need some suggestion on what I can use for certain bits of structures, and even then I prefer to look advice with some of my personal friends. I just want to pull this entire thing on my own, even if it takes a while.
Another reason is the size, proportions and overall continuity of builds. I mean, sure, some of these builds *cough*houses*cough* are gonna suck, but I still want to maintain the continuous style of builds and make them look like they are a part of the same general groups of builds, divided into culture-driven segments. This also kinda ties into the first reason - only real way I can keep my style continuous is to build everything myself. Cuz no one else's style sucks quite as much
Finally, I will have you know that I just generally don't think that I'm gonna need help with building the five wonders you offered (especially since I have built prototypes of some of the wonders you offered). Not only that, but I also find building wonders to be quite enjoyable, so I'm not letting anyone interfere with that anytime... ever :D (Also, it's alright if you don't know how to build statues or custom trees. There's a lot of cool youtubers out there who show how to do that. Hell, that's how I made mine statues)

Well, I will admit that statues are tricky and I only know it because I have a brother who's good at mosaics in general.

Also thanks again for the offer, It's greatly appreciated. :D

Wow! I've always loved AoM (the original). Cool to see an adaptation!

Could you upload some new pictures; would like to see the newer buildings; maybe a yt video would be good.
I apologize for my absence, but I've stated that I was taking a bit of a break to do some RL stuff, namely, finding a job. There will be new pics later today, but the fact that I now have more to worry about than just a minecraft project leaves my schedule sporadic. Don't worry, I will see it through, though. It just might take some time.

Do not misstand me; I know that RL is more important - I and do not want to do it now; just a hint for future ;)
Well, thank you for understanding the situation, and also for sticking in, it's very much appreciated. c:

Each good project needs its time; just do not make it to fast or a way that kills your real live ;)

I had the same idea a while back. It already looks so good! Can't wait for AoE IV
