ALEXBERG 2- the new major update has just been uploaded!

The map was fully updated. All the buildings are being moved from flatland to a more suitable biome with landscapes (the seed for this project is 700). The date of the next version (Alexberg 2.0.1) is 1st of November 2020. Until then, enjoy the current version of the project (and the first).

What's new in Alexberg 2.0?
  • Landscapes!
  • Broader streets and parking facilities
  • Way more parks and rivers/water bodies
  • A more realistic touch of architecure
  • A brand new subway system (under development)
  • A version update (current one is 1.12.2)

Description and style

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.

It is important that you have the clouds OFF. If you use the map, you MUST credit me (using "Alex Nicks on PMC", or just put the link - CC atribution). Recommended packs: Default or Flows HD.

Contributors and inspiration

I have built the building in the pictures. But in the city you will find some buildings that were built by other designers here on PMC. The name of every contributor can be found on the Hall of Contributors near Spawn.

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).

Important notice! After a long period of waiting, Alexberg version 2 is finally here.
It's important to note the fact that this is the first release of AB2, so it is just a schetch to show how it will look like in the future.

We are expecting new helpers to the project, so don't hesitate to PM!

When I open the map it doesn't work-its just blank with one area of land-alexberg isn't there.

Do you know why?

Hi! What version of Mineraft do you use? The first release of AB was for 1.12.2, if you use a newer version it could be a problem.

Hey Alex! I was wondering if you needed help with any building or redstone systems in your map. If you need me I will be available on Sundays but that is about it for now.

Hi! Can you put it as a zip file? I'd like to post it for a roleplay server hosted by Aternos, and it only allows zip. Can you do that or no? Thanks!

Sure, the first version of 2.0 will be ZIP. But I guess til then you can try to extract the current RAR version and archive it as ZIP.
