Welcome to my Forbidden City build that I have been working on for the past year. My goal is to build a 1:1 scale replica of the Forbidden CIty. Alas, I have never visited the Forbidden City in real life so I'm using pictures and Google Earth as reference.
I have also made a small texture pack with enhanced textures for bricks and oak planks, using the texture pack is recommended for getting the most authentic experience of visiting the Forbidden City. It's available on my page.
I hope you enjoy :)

I have made the city slightly wider because I realised that the dimensions weren't quite correct. I also made some other improvements and added some new buildings. On top of that I also made a small texture pack that's available on my page.

This is really impressive, but it looks more like a 2:1 scale replica than 1:1 (since 1 minecraft block is equal to 1 cubic meter). For reference, a meter is about 2/3 the height of an average person.

Thank you! And I believe it's actually close to 1:1 scale (not 100% of course). The Forbidden City is really big😂

Yes, I'm planning on adding the Gate of Divine Prowess and also the empty spaces in between.

What about the east and west palaces? Are you building to build those?

If I have enough time and, most importantly, if I can find enough reference material then I will build those too
