Hey guys ! Today I show you my first megabuild, Meridian Point ! 



Merdian Point is a city in the clouds, full of skyscrapers and parks. Roads and rails go through skyscrapers. This is what people back in the 1925 thought about their future. This is called Paleofuture, and my city follows this concept.

Meridian Point History
Back in mankind beggining, when empires and civilizations started to appear, these flying islands began to be thought as the Gods Home.

The Gods Home is where Gods sent humans to Earth, so they could overrule them from above. Once you die, if you have been a good man/woman, you go there, to Heaven, and you will live forever in its beautiful hills and forests.

Once humans started to travel, they realised these islands were low satellites which surround Earth like a satellite. Then the first inventors started to think about the way to go up there.

Then, back in 1900, zeppelins and planes were made for the first time, and once they were developed, they could arrive at these islands. 

They soon thought about making a centre, so travel could be cheaper and faster, as well as more safe. This soon became a bussiness centre in the year 1925, and skyscrapers began to appear. Meridian Point then came to be the bussiness centre of the world.






This paleofuture city mixes victorian and neoclassical style. As this is a new style to me, I based off my buildings in real life skyscrapers, but making my own version. I got inspiration from the early skyscrapers and Bioshock Infinite, which provided victorian elements that I liked to use here.






Roads and skies are full of futuristic vehicles, including buses, cars, taxis, zeppelins and planes.






All this entry was done by myself in a singleplayer world. I have to thank WorldEdit and MCEdit a lot for helping me do this city faster.



 



Thanks a lot  to THuND3R for the first render.





Now have fun !
