As a result in a catch in a huge miscaculation when building the next structure, I stoped and recalculated everything from the begining and relized that I was off by about double the size everything should be. So once again, Im redoing the Project. This unfortunate incident came right in time as I decided to scrap everything on my server to get ready to implement a campain. This came about when I descovered World Painter, a external mincraft world editing plugin. With this, I have decided to create a 1:1 scale of lake Texcoco kicking off the start to the New Aztec Empire project (further details will be in the Aztec Empire project page). Because of this, The 1:1 scale of tenochtitlan will now be in the campaign world as well as being a significant part of the storyline. That said, I will not get as much of it done as fast as I had in the past due to the fact that Im in college now (I am a pre-med stunent). Im also corrently working on another 20 cities that existed around the edges or inside the lake. Its another set back but I did redo the caculations more than 10 times across different days to make sure I have it right this time.



During the summer of 2011, I had strong ambition to create a 1:1 scale model of tenochtitlan. Not just that, but the recreation of the once known aztec empire. During this rebuild, struggles will emerge. There have been known reports of unusually large amount of mobs lingering in darkness. These mobs are not the regular ones you see at night. These mobs are smarter, more aggressive, can sense you from the furthest distance you cold possibly imagine. Moving in the morning will be you best choice. If you join my server be prepared to fight and survive.

Looks like it's coming along spectacularly, keep up the great work IceFang!
As an archaeologist specializing in Mesoamerica, I give this a GIANT diamond! Looks great so far! Thanks for sparking interest in this incredible region and time in history. <3
Looking great so far!

Thank you :) , this will take me a wile. I just implemented this build into the 1:1 scale of lake texcoco. Because of the scale of that map, I cannot freely use mceddit anymore unless i can somehow pair it with ssh. good thing I have the world eddit plugin!

don't need help on anything, thanks for asking :)
In my opinion it looks kind of cheap if you use tiny render distance.

lol it would be, You would not be able to see anything if this was on tiny render distance, thats why I used far, and even then, its impossible to get the whole structure because of the size ;)

One of the best things I have ever seen.
If there are going to be shops and survival or stuff like that, then...This is going to be a true work of art!

I don't think that tenochtitlan was super flat. BTW it was built on marshy lands. Other than that looks pretty good :)

I already know about that, Templo mayor is just too big to put on anything besides a flat world, thanks for the comment though :)

For anyone who thinks Icefang is exaggerating about how hard the server is, eat your words. It is 500 times harder than hardcore mode. Mobs sprint at you and can sense you from miles away. They will also destroy blocks. Thank goodness for the /back command. If you are looking for a challenge try this server.

Nice, you can use my maya temple for this city if you wan't, the only condition is that you give me the credits :) And what about placing sugar cane around the canals?
  • Icefang23
  • Level 31
  • Artisan Architect
  • September 26, 2012, 1:06 pm
Im not going to place sugarcane around the canals because the large trees I placed around them are the closest supplement to the actual tree like structure surrounding the plot lands of Tenochtitlan. But thanks for the suggestions. : )

Thank you, but I have already completed the center square and have been working on the plot land urban housing and farmland that takes up the rest of the island. I'll still look at it to see if there is something I have not noticed.

I'm surprised to see someone try build the great Tenochtitlan ...

The city is enormous, and so far completed projects are not one tenth of the original, I have my hopes on you, the subject is so great that even I could try to start it.

I like your profile picture, you have a new subscriber :)

Al ver tu imagen y tu proyecto, supongo que eres de México y por lo tanto hablas español, me gustaría saber más sobre tus planes, si tu servidor tiene jugadores latinos con gusto me uno a ayudarte con los detalles :)

Y... quiero ver tu skin, me da curiosidad XD

Sorry.

when i saw your project and your avatar I thought you were from mexico ...

but curiosity overcomes me.

Because you are using a skin Aztec?
Because your avatar is the Aztec eagle?
You are from United States?

If you do not mind, could you answer in private?

someone to take a theme such this, and not of this country I am very surprised... :)
