Persian city-palace


Get Embed Codes

Level 12 : Journeyman Architect
Greetings! This is my very first post on PlanetMC.

This project is a vast maze-like Persian city-palace complex, similar to the game environments in the Prince of Persia series.
I aim to include references to Persian, Mesopotamian and Andalusian architecture, all mixed up in a rather eclectic manner.

Some of my sources of inspiration are the Sassanid-era ruins of Ctesiphon, Andalusian palaces in Spain (the Alhambra, Aljafería, Alcázar of Seville, etc), the citadel gate in Alepo, the Ben Youssef madrasa in Marrakesh, Prince of Persia levels, ...

There are mods for Minecraft 1.10.2 being used on this map:


Rustic Mod

BiomesOPlenty 1.9.4- (*) The bone block I'm using for pillars was removed in more recent versions of this mod.

Once I upload the project, I strongly recommend using the BetterFoliage, AmbientSounds and Optifine mods as well.

For now the project is still work in progress, but I'll post update logs and modify the screenshots from time to time; and hopefully upload the project when it reaches a sufficiently decent stage of construction.

Since I'm working on this alone it may take a very long time before I finally upload the project.

I'm looking forward to any feedback, comments and/or suggestions.

Reception Hall completed

Part of the palace was lost recently after my computer broke down, so the latest version of the world save file went missing. There is much to rebuild.
I'm currently working on the iranian area and completely redoing the andalusian patio.

I'm considering the possibility of setting up a server to include more builders ...
If you're interested send me a PM and show me some of your own projects.

This is so detailed! I love this Persian style! especially since I'm Persian descent.

Good luck on the rest of the project!

I'm of Persian descent, so I know a thing or two about Persian architecture. You didn't do good.

You nailed it! Great job!

Thanks! I'm glad you liked the idea, even though the city is just a mix of styles from different time periods, in a rather improvised way. I haven't finished planning the general layout of the city yet.
The only problem is that I'm advancing at a very slow rate, beacuse I'm working on this project alone.

Thanks! It'll probably take me a long time to upload a decent downloadable project, since I'm working on this alone and only when I happen to have some spare time.
