City of Helsinki

Welcome to see the City of Helsinki!

This is a project I do on the side for fun and entertainment. There is no actual goal in this build I reckon, but we'll see what I end up getting done...!

Will this be a server someday..? Possibly. It would be interesting to have people visit the city - and perhaps visit the actual city?

City itself

Helsinki was founded as a trading post in 1550, even though previous little villages had existed in the area. The city became the caputal city of the Grand Duchy of Finland in 1812, so we've just gone past the 200th year as a capital city!

The Metropolitan area has roughly 1 million people living and working in it, so it's relatively "big".



Buildings


The buildings we have so far are:

  • The Presidential Palace
  • The Honour Guards House, "The Main Guard"

  • The Supreme Court
  • The Ministry of Employment and Economics

Information

Shaders haven't updated for 1.6.2 yet, so none of them used in pictures. Chunky doesn't support Immibis's microblocks, so no nice renders either!

Mods used
  • Forge
  • Immibis's Microblocks

Resource pack

  • Flow's HD 128 (cobble from some other texture pack, if anyone recognises it, tell me which!)

More pictures can be seen in this album.

Unfortunately the map file got corrupted as I accidentally opened the world without having my Forge on so... no more updates on this...!

I will, however, build individual buildings at some point... :)

Hello!






Sorry it's been a while!


Any tips...? Use paint and plan well ahead, check plenty of sources and experiment... also, keep backups! :)

Using mods may deter people from downloading it (if you release a download) but for now this seems promising. I shall deposit you a shiny blue rock and I shall also make myself see when you make something new

Indeed, it was a concious choice though, as regular minecraft doesn't really bend to represent the early 19th century detailed architecture... I have tried a number of times, but it just doesn't look good. Thus, I had to give up something to gain something.

I do view this more as an art work, rather than something you necessarily enjoy trough downloading... We'll see what happends...!
I like it.

Cheers!

Wil lbe adding more details and buildings as fast as I can, but having micro blocks really slows down the work speed... :D
