Argos, nicknamed the White City, is a city located in the Peloponnese. It is one of the oldest cities in all of Greece. I have been building this city for many months now and recently I have decided to completely re-do it. Using inspiration from Assassin's Creed Discovery Mode I have been exploring the ancient city of Argos to see how it is represented in that game. Instead of having a medieval looking fort overlooking the city I have replaced it with a true acropolis worthy of a Greek city. I based the acropolis on the one in Athens and I still have to add more statues and temples to it.

In the actual city itself I have ripped out the existing buildings which were just shells with no purpose and I am in the process of replacing them with much better buildings. I have also decided that the city needed more height variation. I felt that the old city was very flat with everything on one level. Now when you walk around you have the acropolis looming in the background and the odd building popping into view.

I have decided to scrap the beach front and replace it with a dock. I have made one part of the dock which was more like a fishing port and I have plans to add in a proper dock for bigger ships like the one waiting out in the sea.

Here is an outline of my plans for the rest of the city including what is already there:


This map won't be patreon exclusive any longer as I feel that many people wish to explore it and they couldn't. If you want though you can still support me on patreon.

If you enjoy the map and want to be notified when it's updated then you should click the favourite button. You'll get a notification every time I update the map. If you really like the map then consider leaving a diamond. Usually I'll revisit stuff with lots of diamonds and update them to the latest version of Minecraft so if you want to see some of my old stuff revisited then leave a diamond there. Thank you for checking out my project and I hope you enjoy it :)

I love this, obviously Sparta never looked much like this. What's interesting about it, is that it had no monumental temples or great constructions such as defensive walls and fortifications. A greek historian of the period, Thucydides in his book Archaiologia even stated that, should Sparta's ruins be all that remains of it, people would question the stories of its might, given that it was more a large collection of hovels (specificallt five rural villages clustered somewhat together), and its larger structures without a lot of decorations or exquisite materials that would last the test of time. This is why the ruins of Lacedaemon today are not as impressive as, say, the Athenian ruins.

Technically this is on the site of Argos, obviously due to scale it is not inland but on the coast and would look strange if I made it without a port. I'll be building Sparta in a while, thanks for reminding me of that! I forgot that it was basically a village. I remember hearing how in the later Spartan era they could only field 300 soldiers.

Sparta at the time of the battle of Thermopylae did have temples they were all later destroyed during a great earthquake that the city never recovered from. They had an army of 10,000 full time professional soldiers while their slaves the helots worked the fields.The reason only 300 soldiers were sent was because of Carnea the festival of Apollo and it was considered very bad luck to send an army to war during the festival as they were a very religious people. King Leonidas instead led his personal guard of 300 soldiers to rally or inspire other city states to stop the Persian invaders

Yea those three hundred, but in the later Spartan era they were hampered by a small population and could only field an army of three hundred or so.

Paying for a Minecraft map? I don't think that's legal... but (from the pictures) it still looks cool, nonetheless.

Thanks! I thought since the world file isn't released that I'd show what everything was.
