Hi everyone! This is a new city project that I am starting up. I call it Riverport. I will be building this on the opposite side of New Crafton. Right now this project is still very much in its infancy but I plan to make this city just as and maybe bigger than New Crafton. I'm going to take the things I learned with my old city project and improve on this one, so there will be things like more park spaces, larger blocks, wider roads, etc. Overall the plan for this city is that I want to have lots of modern/sleek buildings but also a blend of more "fancy" ones (like the white building in the picture). Those buildings will sort of be like a modern day rendition of older/classical buildings.

Like before, I'll post updates to this project roughly every week as I build.

Right now there isn't much built with only 2 buildings and a few roads laid out but I have a plan in my head of what I want to make :).

I won't be posting a world save just yet, instead I'll probably wait a little while until I have more completed. This post right now is just for people who want to see my next project and maybe want to follow along and see how the build grows from flat land to city.

Anyways, thanks for viewing :)

A quick update to how I plan to build this city. I've decided that instead of making a building and furnishing the buildings immediately, I'll finish the exterior completely then move on to build some other things. Then after a few days, I'll come back to the building and finish the interior. This way, if I come back later on and feel that the building doesn't look that good, I can get rid of it and start over without wasting too much time. My ultimate goal is to fill this city with the highest quality of buildings as I can. I want to make each skyscraper, house, mid rise look like as pleasing to the eye as possible with the most amount of detail I can put in within a reasonable timeframe.
Progress: 15% Complete

Update #4 : 07/30/2012 9:41:10 am7/30/12

I've finished a few more buildings and I feel that its enough to post a world save. The world save has 8 buildings, 4 completely finished and 4 without an interior. I'm going to try putting some of things you guys suggested in the comments, so I'm going to make the park larger and have buildings surrounding it, like Central Park in New York.

Update #3 : 07/27/2012 12:04:52 pm7/27/12

An update to the building process, there are now 3 fully finished (inside and out) buildings, 1 half finished buildings (interior half done) and 3 with exteriors done. The latest building added is the blue/ice building, I got the idea for the two curves on the sides from the Toronto city hall. I'm also making more variety in the skyline with tall/shorter buildings. The large park behind the first row of buildings is also finished.

Update #2 : 07/24/2012 5:03:02 pm7/24/12

Been about a week since I first started on this project and so far there are a few buildings in place. Although like I said before, I won't be doing the interiors immediately after I finish the exterior, this way if I don't like a building after a few days, I can just get rid of it and start over. I've started work on a large park behind the first row of buildings.

Update #1 : 07/23/2012 11:53:42 am7/23/12

The first update to the Riverport project. The city so far has 3 completed buildings with a few roads. I will be using a different road/intersection design compared to New Crafton. The aim is to make them wider and more realistic. I've spaced out some blocks already for future buildings and made sure to keep them wider apart. This way I can build larger and more life like buildings.

Just put a download up. The city is still far from done but there are a couple of buildings finished that you can explore if you like. :)

Thank you! I dont care about unfinished buildings as I know how hard some buildings are to build and the city is still in progress.

Love it so far cant wait for it to come out also another idea you could possibly make is like a big park like central park and then alot of classical rich people and modern penthouse apartment office buildings surronding it and like the person said below you can make a little ghetto area and malls and beaches...

very nice, a possible idea for your map is creating a "bad area" like the ghetto area. maybe near the sewers or something. you can also try adding malls and beaches...

Have you ever considered building a city that is just as big as this upcomming one, but with natural terrain/ground? I'd be willing to pay a lot of USD for something like this but with natural terrain. If you're interested hit me up, as I'd be willing to give you whatever you need to complete something like this on a normal land server.

Where do you find inspiration so quickly? Takes me 3 weeks to design a good skyscraper xD

I would say most of my ideas for my older buildings came from cities like Hong Kong/Shanghai. I also found a couple of new condo/building feeds I check once in a while to get ideas. There are lots of interesting and nice designs there that I end up trying to make in Minecraft.

I saw other people helped you with New Crafton I was wondering as soon as your done with the big city I was thinking mabye if its ok with you I could help with like the outskirts and/or mabye some small buildings like cinama's and/or the parks and roads :)

I don't really know how that would work though since I don't have a server or anything set up with this. The other people mostly were just asking if they could load it on a server and build themselves.
