I have started and will be continuing to build the city of Ankh-Morpork from the Terry Pratchett Diskworld Novels. This will be based on the map that Neil Gaiman designed. once i have the basic layout set i may start up a server to get people to help me build the hundreds of buildings.

Portals to the nether will make the Unseen University able to occupy another dimension so that it more realistic.

I may need texture pack for this map as well as the standard water available is not murky enough to tribute Pratchett.

I am using MCEdit to help with this build as it is so extensive manually clearing and doing the large ground works would take far to long.

I hope to upload plots for people to build on then i can import them into this city.

Also this wont be perfectly 1:1 copy of the map image i am still a pretty amateur builder, it will reflect the city as best i can, it will be excellent when finished.

Brilliant. It looks impressive already. I definitely will want to toss Ideas with you about the Unseen University (One trap I was toying with would be an automated dispenser shooting out apples. Death by fruit? Of course I would have to change the values but it's an interesting concept, especially if it was placed in the dining hall). I'm still stuck with doing measurements for my abbey, every time I decide to incorporate an architectural type to the main building I have to redo the equation to let in space for the pond, orchards and grounds. My main problem is that the rendering is inconsistent and It's hard to measure piece by piece. Is there any way to expand the rendering scope so it doesn't fluxuate?

Btw tell me if you need any help or idea for the city, I love teaming with creative people, they tend to bring you out of your shell and let you go wild.

Good luck again!!!

Well when we are both ready to start the university i will let you know, and we can start to knock out some ideas.

In minecraft itself i dunno about render distance other then whats built in, in mcedit CTRL + F changes the render distance. i also found it renders quicker if you hold your mouse over another window in the taskbar

Change the 0% to 5% now you've done the river. It might attract more people.
