Important note: The custom texture / resource pack for this world is now extremely easy to setup and use ( Please be sure download it and my sound resource pack here to view this world as intended :)


I recommend exploring this world on foot as much as possible to see all of its detail.

I also recommend the "moody" or darkest lighting option in the game.

A new album showing many areas of the world can be viewed here.




Adventure Intro


Clock Tower operation


Time Lapse #1


World overview (poorly made video, I was in a hurry :P )


Cathedral (old version of the cathedral many updates since)


Planned Additions To The World

I have a number of projects in the world I still would like to complete and will be included in future versions.

-Expanded sewer systems.

-Various dungeons and catacombs.

-A number of nearby villages.

-Entirely new areas themed after Nordic, Egyptian, and other cultures.

-Update the subway station to current redstone specs and run lines out to various areas in the world.

-Finish Remodeling of the Colosseum

-And of course continued work to existing buildings/roads/landscape to improve the look of the world.

If anyone has suggestions, or ideas of things that I could add to the world let me know, and I'll see what I can do :)

World History / Credits

This world was originally started on Survival multiplayer. Many of the structures throughout the world were built on survival, including the main castle, its wall, the lighthouse, underwater dome, and many of the surrounding buildings.

While still on survival mode a friend had built a massive 1:1 scale replica of the Colosseum. However it was never completed and still needed a huge amount of work after he quit playing. I decided to import Stugaces Colosseum which can be found here to replace it, as it was fully completed.


I have spent a large amount of time refinishing the bleachers, remodeling the interior and changing the blocks to match my texture pack. It is one of the many WIP, but it is one of two non original creations in the world

The second is a massive redstone item dispenser beneath my castle, I forget who made it, but if someone recognizes it and knows whose creation it was I would be happy to credit them here for it.

I have only recently started playing again, and much of that time has been spent updating structures from 1.0 to 1.5 with new bricks (still a WIP), but most are now up to date.

Because of the recent redstone changes I believe many of my redstone creations are no longer fully functional, notably my subway station. I designed and built the station back in 1.0 and it was fully functional at that time for SMP. It was a fully automated set of systems built to handle 12 incoming and 12 outgoing lines with a modular clear windowed tunnel system. I have no idea when I will get around to modernizing the systems in the station, but for the time being it is inoperable.

The majority of the world (especially around the city) is my own creations, but some of the houses, caves, and towers throughout the world were built by friends.

Redstone Creations And Secret Areas

The world is full of many redstone creations such as these

-egg hatcher

-working lighthouse

-working portcullis

-imported noteblock studio items

-automated subway station (currently broken)

-mock water pumps in the sewers (one of these is very detailed and can actually stop the flow of water in a town fountain, it has a bypass circuit if you do not want the piston running all of the time).

-Dry dock with operating sluice gates and drains.

Most things seem to still work, but some have become a bit buggy after 1.5, in time I will fix and modernize these.

Inside of the main castle there are a number of secret doors (5 that I can recall) All of them are accessible without cheats if you look hard enough :)

Old Versions.

Legal Things.

The only thing I request that you do not do with this world save is to create and distribute schematics publicly (private use is fine of course).

Otherwise feel free to use this world and modify it as you wish, though I ask that you leave the monument I built for Kristen intact.

You do not need to ask permission to use it as a server, making renders, videos, or even an adventure map.

If you do any of these things and make them publicly available please just give clear and noticeable credit with a link to this page :) Also post a link to it here if you don't mind, I would love to see what others can do with the world.

Additional Notes

4-27-2013 Big thanks to Blackroom for creating a newcinematicfor the world which can be seen above!

4-26-20-13To anyone using my texture pack (Guruth-Pack_5.35-1.5.1) or earlier, I believe Ovo_Vine in the CTM folder may be causing game crashes with certainconfigurations. If you are having problems just delete that folder.

4-20-2013 I have had a friend help with a batch file to make the setup of the texture pack extremely easy now.
Progress50% complete

Update #11 Major update to the graphics pack. : by Guruth 12/03/2013 11:37:32 pmDec 3rd, 2013

Since so many people have struggled with setting up my remixed graphics pack I have reworked it completely. It is now extremely easy to setup and use. Please be sure to download it when viewing this world to see it as it is intended.

I have also finished detailing much of the area South of the city walls, added a new forge, finished more interiors, terraforming work, and touched up many other areas.

I love this map! I'm finally making my server and I'm playing flinty the mage. I have the mage tower, and 2 sanctums connected underground, also connected to a giant shrine that connects to the castle. This map is awesome!

I have a server. I need a large city to set it in, but the build will take months. It's an epic roleplay server, with everything from guilds to nobles. Could I use the world for the server?
I will make sure to credit you, and if you ever want to, you would be accepted without applacation, to get whitelisted.

I know it says no permission needs to be asked, but I want to be polite anyway.

HI! I'm DigitalData (The Bears)
My friends and I are planning a HUGE Youtube series where we RPG around a huge world and have some cool adventures. BUT WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!! We don't actually have a world to play on. We are planning something of a grand scale, that would require a world with many different villages and areas. I wanted to ask if we could use your world to base the series in. We could keep the city names, but I already have a name for the series in mind. We would make sure that you get all credit for the world. I am asking several map creators for permissions to use their world and I will use whoever replies first and with the best world.

Thanks for at least considering it! (If you think that I may not be serious about the series, please check out my Youtube channel on my PMC profile page).

Sincerely, DigitalData (The Bears)

Hey!  Sure feel free to use it as you wish.  I have had very little time this last year or so to work on the world, but I would love to see what others could do with it.

I'll show it to my small team/cast and we'll start setting up. I'll make sure to add you to the credits!

I hope you enjoy the series, It'll probably take a few months to get going, but we'll get there!
