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

Some of my sources of inspiration are the Sassanid-era ruins of Ctesiphon, Andalusian palaces in Spain (the Alhambra of Granada, Aljafería of Zaragoza, Alcázar of Seville, etc), the citadel gate in Alepo (Syria), the Ben Youssef madrasa in Marrakesh (Morocco), a few mosques and buildings in Shiraz, Kashan and Isfahan (Iran), Prince of Persia levels (Sands of Time Trilogy) and artistic reconstructions of ancient Babylon.

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

BuildingBricks

ExpansionMod
Rustic Mod

Quartzly
CustomNPCs

BiomesOPlenty 1.9.4-4.1.0.2033 (*) The bone block I'm using for pillars was removed in more recent versions of this mod.

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.
Send me a PM if your interested in helping out.

Reception Hall completed

Update #2 : 05/01/2017 12:14:31 pm5/01/17

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.

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!
Beautiful!

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.

Thanks! I'm not using any resource packs; only the biomes o' plenty, building bricks and quartzly mods.
