Pearl Harbor - December 7, 1941
For December 7, 2016 The 75th anniversary of the attack.

December 7, 1941. A day that shall live in infamy.
-Franklin Delano Roosevelt

On December 7th, 1941, the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was suddenly attacked by the carrier forces of the Imperial Japanese Navy. The attack, masterminded by IJN Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, utilized the art of a surprise attack, and the aircraft carrier. The attack came in two waves of dive bombers, high level bombers, torpedo bombers, and fighters. By far the most effective of these were the torpedo bombers, which were responsible for the sinking of Arizona.

This act killed 2,403 men and wounded more than a thousand more. Six ships were sunk and countless others were damaged. The most profound effect of this attack was, however, the entrance of the United States into World War II.

Today, Pearl Harbor is still a large active naval base, with much of it incorporated into a national historic landmark. Two ships from the attack, Arizona and Utah, remain sunk in the harbor, with Arizona having a memorial placed above it. You can visit these memorials, as well as the Pacific Aviation Museum which is on Ford Island, and the USS Missouri battleship museum.

Only three ships involved in the attack remain afloat:
The USS Hoga (YT-146) in the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum, in Little Rock
The USS YT-143, the only Pearl Harbor survivor still in use today, as a dive boat in North Kingstown, RI
and, on a technicality, the USCGC Taney, which was not in Pearl Harbor but rather in Honolulu. Today it resides in Baltimore, Maryland.

Our goal here is simply to recreate the Naval Base at Pearl Harbor as it was in the moments leading up to the attack. We are not finished, but there is a large amount of construction done.

In the future, we intend to open up the server for the project to be viewed.

Dynmap of the entire project:
(Pearl Harbor Tab)

13 Months building the map
82,000 chunks
30 Ships placed on the map
Map size: roughly 5km x 5km

Our goal date for completion is December 7th, 2017.

The terrain, and many of the buildings on the map have been built by Luxaholic
The land vehicles (trains and cars) have been built by CraftyFoxe
and finally, the ships, and many of the buildings and yard have been built by tillwill
Please do not only diamond and favorite this build, check their other works out!

We have approached this subject with the utmost respect to those who witnessed the horrors of the Pacific War. So, I would like to dedicate this project to those living and dead, on both sides, who fought in the hell that we know as World War Two, especially the survivors of the Attack on Pearl Harbor.

It's been 3 years. The link for the server doesn't work and is there ever going to be an explorable pearl harbor?

It's been moved to a different currently private server and I hate to say that I've all-but abandoned the project. Unfortunately other things have come in the way and it was truly too ambitious to ever complete anyway...

It will not be available to download. The server will be open as soon as enough progress is made.

I've waited for so long for someone to build an accurate Pearl Harbor map, and this has exceeded all my expectations. It's a shame that you won't be releasing it it really is, but it's a fitting tribute to those who fought that morning.

Yes, and I do intend still to open up the server where it is on, it is just that not much of the map is finished.
