Lang Chai
is a large Asian themed city/game in Minecraft. with many citizens, Originally based on a small fishing village (Lang Chai means "fishing village" in Vietnamese) is currently home to over 50 Citizens (some have not rebuilt yet), merchants, Daimyo's and soldiers. Lang Chai offers detailed scenery to enjoy as well as some great role-playing opportunities.

Lang Chai includes market, housing and entertainment districts, docks,

dojo, Spleef arena, wheat farm, public mine, temple, restaurant, bakery,

inn, bath houses, an epic pagoda,

Chinese ship and more. Current ongoing projects are Himjei Castle (with underground

government complex).

The Daimyo are the nobles and are good ones to

ask for info or help. Daimyo's will be removed after a long time of inactivity (over a month). Citizens *IN GENERAL* will not have their houses destroyed until 3 months of inactivity.

One way to get a plot for free, as well as be active in the city is to

join the Lang Chai Army. Enlisting has many benefits which are carefully

listed on this thread:

AuroraMC.net Lang Chai Army thread


requires a donation of 10 stacks of wood, wool, or any ore to

purchase a plot, and all donations go to the city, however Citizens do

get paid in supplies at the post office. Build Height is 12 high, max

basement is 12 down unless you hit the mines. Buildings must not

overhang streets, and it must look Asian, rural or ancient in some way.

Please do not over use brick, cobble or dirt. Good things to use are

wood (all kinds) sand for walls and red wool for roofs/accents.

Another benefit of living in the city is that you get paid for building

and being active. Check in the Post Office frequently and look in your

chest for building materials and special items. The more active you are,

you get paid more. If you have a good idea for a public building or

monument, ask Ryan for permission. Most materials will be provided by

the city if possible.


a customized Painterly texture pack with red Chinese doors and dark

wood look the best. I plan on making a custom texture pack and signs,

etc later.

Emperor: ryanhuong Shogun: Amantis Army General: WoAiUtada Daimyo:

mugatu, pansarkurt, Nicklasbf,
timangl, 33degree, eastmeetsfist, Silaz, SpaceOctopus and Lucianhuskeh.

This fine city is on the even finer Aurora server, and you must register for building rights.

Server rules: TnT or stealing or griefing at any time.

City rules: No logging in the city. There is a tree farm outside the West Gate.

No digging down past 12 blocks, don't build more than 12 blocks high.

MUST use Asian, ethnic, or ancient style

MUST respect others, MUST have fun

I heard that Lang Chai wasn't on the Aurora server anymore..
Will the save file still be up for download? :D (Because I'm not sure if the "[size=12px][color=rgb(34,34,34)]UPDATE: This map is down now, I have a copy and will make Lang Chai available as a SSP map soon/" was abandoned.[/color][/size]
[size=12px][color=rgb(34,34,34)]Thanks :) It's a shame that something this awesome isn't on the server anymore![/color][/size]

Holy shit, I don't mean to nose in, but did you guys base your statue on my Creeper Samurai skin? I feel f*cking honored!

This is an awesome project, such a great interpretation of the real deal in minecraft terms, big respect!

Yeah I used to use a regular Samurai skin, but since I found yours I have been using it. One of the builders on the server made that in honor of me... So now it watches over the city.

Lang Chai is one of the most mesmerizing cities on the server; vibrant and beautifully built, it is truly a crown jewel of Aurora. If you enjoy Asian architecture and a community of friendly players, please come explore Lang Chai on the Aurora server!

Totally new map... All the monuments have been copied over. This new map has been designed with only 8 warps total. 4 "hubs" (NSEW) and 4 cities, one of which is of course Lang Chai. New pics coming soon

Have you built it? I am not a good builder, but I have some talented ones working with me. I would love to see what you've done. You should come by the Aurora server and check out the site, with a real living, breathing town below.

I'll check it out sometime. I have given up on my Himeji for now because I messed up the base and my references were scarce.

Just checked it out. Awesomer than Serenity Server's Asia-town. And the Mods/OPs gave me a nice welcome! :D

Glad you liked it kac, come build with us. It takes me about 15 minutes to cut ten stacks of logs - contact ryanhuong, Amantis or WoAiUtada to join.
