Hey guys! For more than a year and a half, I've been working on this Modern Minecraft Metropolis. Ito s an awesome city, created with an astounding attention to detail and a unique, realistic vibe. The city is very detail oriented, It's filled with loads of awesome buildings, from a senate building, to apartment buildings, and even everybody's favorite Swedish furniture store!

The map is great for using in creative mode or survival mode and even has it's own metro system with a four lines. (This is great for going long distances without encountering zombies at night). The map includes a "central bank" that has some needed items like iron, gold, and diamond for use in survival mode.

Later this month, I will release a version of this map for online multiplayer on Minecraft PE. Every city is only complete with tons of citizens. With buildings as they are, over 400 players could be comfortably accommodated in all the apartments and other living establishments.

Please comment to let me know what to improve, and don't forget to leave a diamond andsubscribe! :)

List of features:

  • Countless skyscrapers
  • Detailed furnishings
  • Consistent Scale
  • New Block Skin which:
  • makes the furnace a computer, minimalizes the glass, metal ladder.

Wow, but the only thing is, the buildings are a bit, um... Narrow, I should say. Try making them wider, it won't hurt to do so. But overall, pretty cool. Modern skyscrapers combined with stylish apartment blocks (I think) and luxurious palaces... Perfect, like Beijing, China's capital city.
I'm liking it.

It lools bland and empty, I do know that you need creativity for making the interiors, but I am dissatisfied. Not saying mine is really the best, but come on, more effort?

Its ok I guess, my scale of Cities, with the popular ones included:

| 10 Perfect (Never will any city be, completely perfect)
| 9 (No City can be almost perfect)
| 8< Industria and Tazader (Realism)
| 7< MYC (Skyline I guess)
| 6
| 5 < Yours (Ok Line)
| 4 
| 3
| 2
| 1 Terrible

Your city is actually smaller than what I have expected, but its just, empty.

How did you go from survival to creative, and if there is a way for iOS please tell me how because I've been wanting them to add that to PE for a while now.

Great work.
Suggestion, try to do some interiors (I don't know how hard that is for the PE) instead of only exteriors and adding more skyscrapers.
Also an idea, a sewer system.
Anyway good luck with the project!
