The first map I published on PMC was a Soviet Gulag. I have now worked with many mods and programs in order to recreate a similar map. I present to you a new and improved Gulag. This was a difficult project. However, thanks to WorldPainter and WorldEdit, the map was finished earlier than expected and the result was much better. I also must thank the creators of the mods CustomNPCs, Camera Obscura, and Modern Warfare. I used these mods to take many of the screenshots above.

The Gulags (ГУЛаг) were Soviet labor camps set up in Siberia. They were created under the leadership of Vladimir Lenin but became famous under Joseph Stalin. Stalin sent political prisoners, POWs, doctors, teachers, scientists, military officials, and anybody else who got in his way out into these camps. Prisoners at gulags were forced to do hard labor and work without proper tools or enough clothing. This became very problematic during winter were the temperature would be far below freezing. Many gulag prisoners were sent to fight on the front lines during the Second World War and other Soviet military campaigns throughout Stalin's reign. Many gulag prisoners were freed after Stalin died. However, the system would remain until Mikhail Gorbachev finally abolished it in 1987.

Hey Electrogamer732,

Was wondering if I could use a small clip (10 seconds max) from your gulag map in my youtube video. I'll credit you in the description.

Thank you for being generous with your permission! I'll surely drop the video link here when it comes out (it'll probably take some time though before it comes out).

Teleport to -14, 66,-112. That should teleport you to the front gate.

First of all, it is not a gulag. Gulag is a Russian institution that managed the entire system, transport, prisoners and their work. Łagier (rus. лагерь) is a concentration camp, and that's how you call it. And Łagier's weren't only in Siberia.

I know the labor camps were not only in Siberia.Gulags were located all over the Soviet Union. There is also speculation that similar work camps now operate in North Korea. The word "Gulag" means "Main Administration of Camps". However, I chose to use it because "Gulag" is the word most people know it as. If one is to search the word "Gulag" and look at the list of definitions shown on Google, the second one is"a camp in the Gulag system, or any political labor camp". The word "Gulag" being used as a synonym for a labor camp is like a factoid.
