Salutations Minecraftians. 

I'm a gap year student heading to university next year. Perhaps because of this I've found when I'm not consuming excessive alcohol training my liver for what's to come or working, I'm most likely playing minecaft. This happens to be my first project here on PMC and I hope to make it one that standards out amongst the rest. I'm currently building this on ravand.org using the conquest texture pack. 

I've got a few great people helping me with this project. Namely being my good friend Andrea (AKA AndJuice) who is responsible for so much, from telling me off when I'm slacking to the giant fucking arena in the screenshots :D Although we are the main project "leaders", a number of the servers renown architects are helping out when they aren't busy with their own projects, and have contributed with the work load. I'll provide a full credit list later.

Being a huge film nerd I've been inspired from so many movies in this build, such as Exodus Gods and Kings, The Life of Brian, Gladiator as well as the city Qarth from Game of Thrones. (Who isn't building Game of Thrones shit these days :P)
But also my inspiration extends to you guys. I've looked at so many similar desert cities which have inspired me to build this one. It's defiantly a hard style to make as 90% of the blocks in Minecraft are more... Fantasy medieval generic stuff. But I promise you guys a city that really does stand above the rest. Something that eventually will stand up high with the better builds of PMC (big words from a level 1)

A huge thanks to both Ravand and Monsterfish_. Together they have created quite frankly, my creative playground at ravand.org! From Ravands metadata cycler to Monsterfish_'s incredible texture pack with hundreds of additional textures! Without them I honestly wouldn't play Minecraft.

Update #2 : 03/24/2015 9:31:50 amMar 24th, 2015

The city has came a long way in the last few days. I imagine the first district (dock district) shall  be finished within the next few days. This district currently contains:
  • A brothel - located by docks (for all those horny sailers)
  • A tavern - located along the main road coming from the gate towards to inner city gate
  • A mosque (exterior unfinished) - We are not sure on the religion of the city yet, it'll most likely be an adaptation of an old religion such as early Christanity. However I don't really know much about religion being a man of science and shit. 
  • A large warehouse near docks (unfinished)
  • A shipyard (we will have a ship being build inside it - contains function to how the ships are actually released into the sea)
  • A small barracks which would be the main access point onto the city walls in this district. (There will be an entire district dedicated to military, including a small fort, training fields, siege workshops and access to the city walls in case of siege)
  • Contains many shops, food stalls, market stalls, and even a resturant/food court
  • Most residental buildings are split into apartments, meaning a number of different families/peoples live in the buildings, typical to these kind of cities (often the lower floors will have a store, but it depends on lcoation)
  • The docks are still work in progress however we have two large trade ships currently docked and are currently developing desert styled ships

Very Amazing, Stunned, Extraordinary. Highly genius, no doubt because I played a role in the creation of the city

I hid a 133:4 somewhere in the city.
Whoever finds it gets the pleasure of destroying it

This is my first project on this scale, but honestly, I've never been more engaged in MC, it's actually quite satisfying watching it grow

He's a great lass, I will possibly make a video with him showing off the entire city. Or perhaps a cinematic, but I am new to this entire process :P

Nice city so far, I startet a similar project with basically the same idea 2 years ago. But yours has much more detail and atmosphere. I really like it. :P

Nice man, you should finish it :D Conquest texture pack has defiantly meant I have a lot of blcoks to play around with when detailing and creating atmosphere :) x

No I am not going to finish it. I'd have to redo everything to be happy. But the Conquest Texture Pack is indeed awesome. I use it at my current projects, too. :D


Are you going to put up a download link for it? :P

I saw this on the side list of the Latest Hot Land Structure Projects, and just from that miniature pic I knew I just want to come here and just hit the diamond, without looking at the pics... because I knew I will hang here for another xy minutes...


I failed... did looked at them :D


then I saw the 5% progression... what the hell :O /mindblowing work Artromix!

Thank you, I just updated the screenshots using some new shaders :) To be honest, I don't think this is even 5% complete :P I have such high ambitions with this, and all the new helpers I am getting mean I can hopefully make it larger than what I could do by myself :)

It really is the best texture pack :) so much creative freedom that mojang really need to get on board with :P thanks for the love x
thats a really great build :) are you doing this all on your own, or do you have a team?

If you want to borrow my server so you can work with some guys i can help you out.
I'd be willing to load up your map on my server for a month or two so you can work on it with freinds.
the map would be private so no one but you and your freinds could enter it.

I use worldedit, and voxelsniper, so you could have access to those.
also, i now offer access to command blocks if you need to use those for anything like
titles or anything.

we have a few novice and master builders on our server that may be willing to help you out
to finish this project. Jolard is a really good builder and freind. he may be willing to spend some time
to help you with this project.

Let me know and i'll see if i can lend a hand somehow. its very nice.

our website is: www.hooptiesworld.enjin.com if you want to check it out and and pm any of the master or novice builders.

Thanks for the offer. This project is somewhat a team build, it's mostly ran by me and my friend Andrea, however a few of the experienced builders on ravand.org are helping out on and off

Yes :) If not less than 5%, the total project is huge, what I am showing is only a small section of one of many districts which will make up the city. Each with its own unique style, such as larger apartments rather than individual houses, or small slave houses in the fevelas

I'm trying to make the build as atmospheric as possible. I don't really want any open spaces or "clean" walls. At the minute I'm trying to get as much structures down as possible, but I will go over the entire thing and add extra parts of detail and atmosphere when I finish sections. :)
