Welcome to the City of New Blockston, a Canadian city with New England influences, started in June 2021! Located on the shore of Lake Naicouche and along the banks of the Mons River, New Blockston is a blossoming city in its prime. Explore the Harbourfront District and Old Town near the lake, or head west towards the Mons to explore the dense Financial District and the historic Centre City! On your way, grab some knowledge at the University of New Blockston Newport Campus, or get some shopping in at the Newport Centre. In the Financial District, check out the FirstBank Plaza, New Blockston Imperial Bank Tower, or the many other furnished skyscrapers for you to explore! Catch a game and cheer on your favourite teams at the FirstBank Arena or Lumberjacks Stadium. If you choose to stay by the lakefront, swim with the fishes at the city aquarium, have a fun day at the Hampshire Fairgrounds, or bask in the glory of St. Joseph's Cathedral. Go shopping at the Church St. Marketplace, or at the historic Old Town Market; enjoy your stay at the grand Royal York Hotel, the scenic Harbour Castle, or the luxurious Diplomat hotel! No matter what you decide to do, get around on the New Blockston Transit Authority's System of Subways, LRTs, and Streetcars, and take the commuter rail from Union Station. If you're in a hurry, you can also look for teleportation stores that will teleport you into the central teleportation hub at the corner of Lexington and 6th. From there, you'll be able to teleport to any other teleportation store!

The project's main goal is to create a city that mimics real-world cities' architecture and functionality while providing a functional aspect for Minecraft, as it is, after all, a city built in Minecraft. Note: the city was (mostly) built on a scale of 1 block = 1 metre.

New Blockston is principally inspired by the following real-world cities:
Influential cities
Major influences: Toronto, ON; Boston, MA; New York City, NY
Minor influences: Montréal, QC; Vancouver, BC; Portland, ME; Burlington, VT; Concord, NH; Providence, RI; Detroit, MI; Québec, QC; Victoria, BC; London, UK; Stratford, ON; Pittsburgh, PA

Many buildings and aspects (e.g. layout) of these places, as well as various tutorials, have played a large role in inspiring the construction of New Blockston.


This map is made for Minecraft 1.21, but can be played on later versions. If you are not on 1.21 or later, this map will not be fully functional (e.g. blocks might go missing)!

    Right now the most recent general map is for v1.6, but a new updated map will be released soon! The only differences between v1.6 and 1.8 would be a new area to the north of the park, and a new area to the west of the financial district.

    To make a map of the world, we usually use Mineways to render it, so you could use that. If you want, we can also release an unedited pdf of the map also.

    hey, this is a great project and very detailed. good work !
    by chance, do you remember the seed that you used ? i'm trying to build something similar on my own world and i'm not having luck finding a seed for city-building. also the seed that the world's giving me via /seed isn't seeming to work on any version but if you can't find/remember it, that's fine.
    keep up the good work !

    Hi! The seed that the world gives you should be correct, but we've heavily modified it with apps such as World Painter to make it more suitable for building, which might be why it doesn't match. Good luck with your city and let us know if you have other questions!
