_About the project_

The PillarHex District [Create yours NOW!] Minecraft Map
WARNING!
Self-replicating machines have been used in the creation of this project.

DISCOVER MORE HERE!

There is the need for colonizing a new planet? Self-replicating machines are the right tool!
But what does it mean? That the city is created automatically without any effort?
Created automatically, yes; without effort, absolutely not!
Self-replicating environments are hard even to conceptualize, but when there is the idea, here are the steps I've passed through to create the PillarHex district:

-Creation of a specific laboratory division housing all the necessary construction bays and utilities. (FIG.1)
-Creation and programming of all the machines of the basic city's infrastructure. (FIG.2)
-Off-world testing of the tessellated road expansion. (FIG.3)
-Off-world testing of a placeholder city. (FIG.4)
-Creation and progressive enrichment of the final city modules. (FIG.5)
-Sowing and controlled growth of the city over the target world! (FIG.6)


The final machine includes more than 60 template structures between building and road elements!




_Other Info_

-Minecraft version 1.12

Any indication of how it should run on old systems? With projects like this I always feel my laptop won't handle it. 😅

I don't know your exact specs, but I think you can try it anyways with some astuteness.
Run it on mc 1.12 and close all other applications, there's an ON and an OFF button in the sandbox world.
I suggest you to turn the machine on for just a little (~15 seconds) and then turn it off, after that, leave the buildings to stabilize (i.e. leave everything to finish self-building); then repeat the procedure.
In this way your PC will have to deal with much less fatigue!
If everything goes well and smooth, try to turn it on for longer periods, otherwise if heavy lag happens, exit the game and enter again: this will clear the RAM and will deactivate the machine so the lag will disappear.
Using these tricks I think you should be able to build iteratively the entire district!
PS Nice Christmas-themed profile pic :-)

Oi that's great advice. What I am mostly worried about is my laptop overheating, but this sounds pretty safe to try.

When I have a moment I'll open it up and see how it goes. And let you know too.

And thanks about the profile pic. 😁

That sandbox map really takes me away!

This concept remains to be one of the most avant-garde I know in PMC! Well done!

Yes! Glad to see you managed to get something submitted after all! I love this concept, the patches of organic abodes clinging to the sides of clean and modern towers. At first glance all the skyscrapers look the same but when you look closer you can see that they are all different. The view from the street reminds me of something from Star Wars or the Fifth Element, very cool!

Thank you very much for your comments! It means that that the build well represents my initial idea :-) I wanted this contrast to highlight the "alien tribe" aspects of the city. I tried not to get inspiration from anything already existing, and I had already a clear idea on the final look of the build!

Sure! It is nice that the city will be populated by other people :-D
Just give credit! Also, if you want, you can put a link to the map here, so that who sees the project here is able to join you, if it helps!

Were those city entrance stairs and walls part of the city generation? I mean I haven't seen that included before.

Project wise, the concept is quite nice with the clean/precise ground floor. Upwards it does become a bit of a coral like structure. Although while looking in-game, with the right angle you can look straight to the other side while high up.

Nicely done with adding interiors, although I did hoped for more besides stairs inside the advanced towers (nice touch to have water bottom down to break the fall inside the teleportation/levitation/elevator shaft)

Hello eagoy and thanks for the feedback!
The external walls are placed manually, but they're not simple walls! They have the function to limit the expansion of the machines, which can detect them and be bounded, otherwise the city may have destroyed the mountains nearby!! That's why I described it as "Sowing and controlled growth of the city over the target world"

I would have liked to add more to the towers too! I just had too little time to expand in this direction and preferred to focus on the "alien tribe" theme of the contest. Consider that I worked fully on the project only yesterday and the day before, and only in the late evenings of the last week :-(
Anyway I still managed to create a set of 64 templates for the project and I'm quite satisfied of the final result.

You got it about the water, quick way down! :-D
