Cloud Haven


This build is set in the same Universe as the 'Cloudchaser'

Originally a large mining ship, it would sail from continent to continent, mining the anti-gravity material found in the floating islands nestled upon cloudy blankets.

However, after the catastrophe that was the 'Void Storm' All of the land vanished into the void, leaving only the floating shards of land high above in the sky. The only survivors were the inhabitants of the airships high in the sky.

Set 500 years after the Void Storm, Cloud Haven has evolved into a giant city ship, a trading point for others who are lost in the endless cloud-seas. With space at a bare minimum, the inhabitants literally clamber on top of each other to find space to build their homes. Thanks to the anti-gravity material they mined, Cloud-Haven floats gently above the clouds despite its great size.

One of the largest known vessels in the skies, CloudHaven boasts a population of over 1000; filled with traders, skylords, merchants, smugglers, pirates and proletariat alike.

Explore the ship and get lost in its endless runways, boardwalks and delve deep into the under-city.

Challenges.

You spawn in Survival mode - try and survive on the ship, there are resources available in chests scattered around the ship, as well as villagers to trade with.

See if you can collect enough resources to build your own house on one of the surrounding islands.

(If you can find the Treasury Room, this will help you enormously as there are vast amounts of resources located there.)

There are also 12 music discs hidden around the ship, try and find them!




Custom Texture pack: http://www15.zippyshare.com/v/11840318/file.html
(This build was designed in a custom pack, and to experience the build properly, you should use this texture pack.)

Great job on map. Really fun to play but only one issue i have is with the texture pack.
when I do to my resource packs settings it won't appear even though it is in correct file location
I think it could be that the texture pack is not correctly set out but I'm not an expert so I don't really know.
Please Help and Thanks for making this :D

If I remember correctly, it was spaced out over the space of a month. (Probably a total of around 40 hours)

It was the interiors which took up most of the time - the external structure was pretty much completed within a week.

Hi Beefupthebeast, 

You can make schematics of the build by installing singleplayer commands or MCedit

I'm afraid I don't have time to do that, however, if you download MCedit, you should be able to adjust the height of the build yourself without too much trouble.

Hi, please respond to this, I have to load maps into my server if I want to look at them because my singleplayer lags really hard. I spawned in a superflat so I would like if you could give me the coordinates for the island. Also I will be removing the world as soon as I take a nice look at it :)

You can make one yourself fairly easily.

Simply download MCedit. There are clear, simple tutorials to follow online.

This is really amazing! I must ask, what is the whole thing behind the color coded zones? I see where it says "green zone only" or stuff like that. Does it have something to do with the color in the walkways/railways?
  • lynchyinc

Thanks LadyEclair.

The colour coded zones are related to the different levels. Due to the overwhelming overpopulation issue, most of the poor population live in the undercity, however, even more well-off citizens who live above deck are limited to a strict hierarchy. When I was originally planning to turn this into an adventure map, the different levels would be for different castes, such as engineers living in the red zone, gardeners/herbalists in the green zone etc. Whilst I abandoned the idea due to time constraints, you can see some semblence of the concept come through in the design.

Also, the map is used on paintball.PVP servers and the coloured levels make it easier to navigate the ship, as it's a maze of walkways and structures.
