So what the heck is tesolpan? Tesolpan is the culmination of a project that intended to recreate an aztec city, fulfilling itself all it´s needs, but that was a very little purpose, so I decided to make it an adventure map, I´ll think later about the plot, but for now, just relax and enjoy the view of the greatest and most accurate aztec city in Minecraft!.

IMPORTANT! I need to say that, this is a fiction project, because it´s based of many cities, is not a reconstruction of a city that actually existed, but that doesn't make the project any less valuable historically, as I'm not adding elements that weren't already there in aztec culture, my intentions are not to merge cultural elements, rather build a story from them, other than the one we have been told, if you have any questions, do not hesitate on sending me a message.

Lore of the project: Tesolpan is a city ambientated in a region similar to central Mexico at the 1500 D.C, but as this is a fictional place the spanish conquest will never happen, actually, in this world Eurasia and Africa doesn't even exist, it's all water.

The first colonists came to the region at 350 D.C, and they founded their own city, they came from the south, were the ethnic mayans can be found, they brought their architecture and culture with them but 100 years later a plague vanished the population and left the city abandoned, 600 years later, the aztecs came to these lands and to their surprise they found the ruins of the old mayans, calling their settlement: Tesolpan, or the place over the old rocks (I think the name is pretty obvious, don´t you?).

Tesolpan grew very fast during 300 years and was the cultural capital of the coatl state, conformed by 3 main cities (this sounds a bit like other thing isn't it?).

Etimology of the name: Tesolpan is a merge of three words in nahuatl: Tetl (rock) Soli (old object) Apan (over), this translates as: "Over the old rocks", the reason of why I chose this name is because the actual aztecs of Tesolpan edificated their city over the ruins of what was once an ancient maya settlement.

Do you ever plan on releasing a download for this? Or is there a server we can view it on? Either way, it's very beautiful!

Me encanta, Puedes hacer un Lobby, con la misma estetica.

Aparte, como recomendacion. yo ocupor la terracota con sus colores en vez de Concreto, porque le da un toque de color hueso

Si quieres te puedo ayudar

Muchas gracias por tus comentarios :)

El lobby por ahora existe, pero es un secreto jeje, aunque un lobby más grande es una necesidad, realmente debo de hacer uno mejor que el existente.

Gracias por tu recomendación, en mi defensa, si uso la terracota en muchas situaciones, pero suelo optar por el concreto para denotar colores más vívidos y provocar un poco más de profundidad en algunas de las construcciones, pero procuraré usar materiales menos "chillones" cuando pueda, gracias :)

Respecto a tu ayuda, me encantaría una mano extra, el proyecto ha estado varado por un rato y si quisieras contribuir en el quizás pueda volver a la marcha, mándame un mensaje privado y lo platicamos.

Thank you! :D I try to give contrast between the builds and do something beautiful and colorful with this map! Not like other representations of aztec cities that I have seen (all with boring gray stone), anyways, thank you for the compliment mate, I´ll keep answering as many comments as I can.
