ALEXBERG 1.2.1 is out now!

It is important that you have the clouds OFF. You can use the map on a server, but you HAVE TO credit me (using "Alex Nicks on PMC", or just put the link). Recommended packs: Default or Flows HD.

How can I even describe this city? You just have to see it to understand. I know this city is not like the other Minecraft maps, but it is special: I wanted to create a realistic world, a world with imperfections, like in reality (so I understand if you don't like it).

This map has a huge amount of realistic-looking buildings, some mini-games that you can play, an awesome subway system to get you wherever you want, and even a Nether-village. Not convinced yet??

What's the idea? For I am trying to build a realistic city in Minecraft, I have to respect the way cities grow and bloom: from nothing! That's the reason why right now I am working at the Old Center, the part that is supposed to be the oldest (the first one). The next step will be the so-called ''Highside'', the economic center of the city.


I have built the building in the pictures. But in the city you will find some building that are from contributors (not many).

(creator + active editor); GavMan, Fledermau5 ; Biof429, ; fakeman (you can PM me if you want to contribute).
Bundles I've used: here + here.

Anyone could be architect/artist for this project! Just PM me if you're interested.

Sources of inspiration: this map; Real cities: Stockholm; Bucharest; Budapest; Paris; Brussels; any building I see in reality, basically.

Transportation: Alexmetro Subway System (under construction; 9 normal stations + 1 big junction); link with main other villages of the world by: train (electrified rail) and road. There are not many parking lots at the surface, but there are many spacious underground parking lots that can be used; the tram system; the river;
In the future are planned: the Airport and the Alexberg Great Circle (a big subway line to go all around the outskirts of the town).
Reddale Elementary School; Kitten High; Reiden High School; Alexberg University (to date: 6-7 branches)
Economy: Meting Factories; Alexpharm Factories (soon); agriculture (nearby villages) , The Old Bank, The National Bank
Health: Nordseid Private Hospital, Nordseid Great Hospital, Woster Hospital +more hospitals (soon)
Tourism: Museums (First House; Alexberg Big Museum of Art and Sculpure; Transportation Museum; Modern Art Museum; Museum of Farming; The Ruk Palace; Witchcraft Museum of Beacon Hills), hotels (Grand Central, Bohemian, Sandstone Resort); monuments (Beacon Hills complex: the Alexberg Beacon + The Wooden Watchtower + the Old Fortress+see above^)
Politics: National Parliament; The Town Hall; Transportation Administration Building (in work).
Fun, leisure, free time: 5 clubs, AlexMall (soon), Central Park, Tiskavell-Hills Park, bars...
Religion: St. Alexander Church; The Ancient Dome; The Grand Cathedral (soon the interior); many other small churches (Beacon Hills, Dowleken, etc.)
Sports: The National Stadium (in work), The Sports Hall in Leubridge

The districts of Alexberg (from oldest to newest + their Postal Code): Old Town (Center) 01; Kitten 02; Spawnburry 03; Nordseid 04; Reiden 05; Kriston 06; Wheretech 07; Ghoston 08; Springfield 09; Dowlaken 10; Narla 11; Maricester 12; Beacon Hills 13; Alexbour 14; Werid 15; Felixgate 16; Leubridge; Meting; Ender; Woster; Weese-Nederock (italic = already on the map; underline = soon)

(!!) The city has a working automatic subway system, which is also developing really fast. If you downloaded the map, make sure to also check out the Subway System map above and the render map (but for an older version).

National Heritage sites and historic sites: certain buildings in the city are marked with letters from A to F, meaning that they are of historical importance. At the moment, there are more than 30 buildings that are in the National Heritage (like the Postal Office and the First House).

BRIC sites: buildings that ruin the image of the city, and they are proposed to be destroyed.

The project was also designed to host different mini-games. For the up-to-date version (for 1.0.9; it will be out soon), these are the mini-games that you are able to play, once you download the map:

The Bank Robber: go to The National Bank; do the following: 1) Find the two alarms and stop them; 2) Find and open the Vault Door; 3) Find the War Bunker; 4) Try to access the roof warehouse (but don't fall into the traps).

The Nether Lover: go to the Nether Inc. Institute and: 1) find the Nether Portal; 2) Go to the Nether; 3) Travel through the Nether Village and take the train; 4) Find the other Nether Portal and go the Upper World again.

(more games soon)

Rules: Forget you are playing on Creative and don't break any block.

Versions launched: AB Pre-alpha;AB Alpha (0.1; 0.1.5; 0.2; 0.3); AB Beta (1.0.0-1.0.20); Alexberg 1.1 (1.1-1.1.8); Alexberg 1.2 (1.2.1-)

Nice place. Might I suggest perhaps adding more landscaping around the city. Natural looking custom trees can be nice additions also. For street lights, it would be cool if you play around with end rods, with decorative blocks on top as the "light" but with the end rod actually being the light source (looks awesome when done right, trust me). pretty sweet. +1dia
