INFO: This is basically Chicago converted into Minecraft form from google maps. Initially this was built to develop building standards and new infrastructure development to compare against existing city servers. It will feature as many buildings as possible, as well as building accurate interiors based on research and well as scouting the actual locations of the building itself. All buildings are scaled to a "not so accurate" 1:1 scale. Due to this large scale, it is not expected to be completed within my lifetime without support, so it will be constantly updated as progress ensues. This city is also the first as the base of the City Project Series.


-If you would like to contribute to this project in anyway, I am looking for pictures of various addresses around Chicago that I will need some generic shots of floor layouts of specific adresses, If you or another would like to contribute to this mapping project check out the Link Below:

Is this still a thing, or did you quit on the project?
Hello, I'm making a server and was wondering if you'd be willing to let me use your map, we'd edit it heavily, or not use it at all, but its still nice to have it just in case, and credit given ofc

Did you build the Sears Tower (Now called Willis Tower)? That's like the staple of Chicago

Very nice project!
I have a very great question for you, I am currently building a Divergent Adventure Map and I was wondering if I could when you're done use your Chicago map? I will include who built the Chicago map as credit to you so they know you built the Chicago city part.

If that would be fine?

I've hit scaling errors, and I'm busy with IRL stuff, so this project is put on hold until further notice. But you can expect that there are already noteable different changes one the most current map, which has not been released.

Oh dear, hold up. Coordinates for spawnpoint should be at -473, 24, -218. If there is still nothing I might have to reupload it.

Oh, and the CTA has been updated to be a bit more comfortable with 5 other players when sitting inside, with the exeption of realism of course.

(It looks like the things you would ride in the zoo.)

Depends, one man with Mcedit, and bukkit can only go so far.


Which means it might take a billion man hours.

awesome build man, dont keep up!
Good luck on this, though I would probably reccomend making it a period piece Chicago. Since the height limit is dumb.
Nice project! Upload more pictures. I'm very interessted in it cause I've also a Chicago city project (:

Definitely hard due to scaling and height limitations.
