Hello there!

We are a group of friends from Sweden. We do this in our sparetime, recently we have found the will to reopen the world and continue building our city, Mineville, after almost a year in which the world was put on hold.

The aim for this project is to try to recreate New York as it were during the 1900 to 1950s.

We find pictures mostly from skyscrapercity.com and then we try to make a minecraft-building out of it that way.

We have a website where you can check the progress and even check out our map on a Minecraft map overviewer which is updated frequently.

We are constantly updating our website, so be sure to keep an eye on the site.

Here's our website: www.mineville.nu

Map Overview: www.mineville.nu/maps

FAQ:

What texture pack are you using?
- The original Minecraft texture pack.

Are you going to release the world for download?
- We will release it when it's done, but that can be a while.

Additional Notes

The aim for this project is to try to recreate New York as it where during the 1900 to 1950s.

Update #6 : 08/30/2012 5:31:20 pm8/30/12

The Penobscot building has been completed and might soon be visible on the city canvas, behind the New Yorker Hotel. Cheers!

Update #5 : 08/29/2012 8:43:00 am8/29/12

Yesterday we started the construction of statue of liberty. To do that we had to create an artificial island which turned out great. The island it self still needs some more work, but it's getting there.

We've been revamping lots of the old buildings, for example, the empire state building was completely redone and is now more accurate to the real thing.

We also rendered the world bigger, it's now 5000x5000 blocks.

For the lolz I uploaded a picture of our statue of liberty, cheers!

For more information just visit out website, we are constantly updating there.

Can you release a download of what you have so far?
My server's name is mineville ;)
Looks really nice, but I do question you calling this a "recreation". It's not a replica at all, it's more of a collague one could say. Anyways, still looks nice and I wish you luck with the project.

I'm afraid not. I'm not the one who rendered the pictures. It was a friend. He goes by the name "Goopen". Just PM him, and I'm sure he will give you a link for the texture.

Welk, if you want it to be like how it was from 1900 to 1950, you can't have the twin towers there (as seen in the pictures above) because they were built in the 60's.

hey this project looks great. i have 2 questions though. 1: how tall is the tallest building. and 2: how do you know what the whole of new york if you are from Sweden? also could you please stop bumping the submission in the change log when nothing has been changed.
  • Noobalid
  • Level 56
  • Grandmaster Princess
  • October 30, 2012, 6:25 am
Thank you.
1: The empire state building is the tallest building, and it's around 190 something blocks high.
2: Well, basically we have a NYC map overview from 1940, but that's mostly just to make the roads as it were back in the old days. When we are constructing buildings, we use Google as our main tool to find pictures of the buildings we are building.
And for the bumping, I didn't know you couldn't do that. I was just letting know we updated on our website. I will not do that anymore.
looks lke a little bit of shaders and or photoshop filters
