Colonial Period:
Republic of Union Islands is a country located at the northeast of New Zealand, in an alternate universe where Ferdinand Magellan first landed in the island of Karubattan(now the Province of Catalina) in 1521 before discovering the Southeast Asian subcontinent.

It became a colony of Spain from 1521 until 1762 when the British took over in the "Battle of Cordillera."

In December of 1521, the city of Intramuros in the Province of Real was established as the new capital.

In 1768, it was discovered that gold reserves were abundant in the island chain which lead to the other European powers (Germany, Netherlands, France, and Italy) to take over parts of the archipelago.

In 1802, inspired by the French Revolution, a Revolutionary Government was formed in La Campagne, Orleans known as "République Travailleur de La Campagne" (Workers Republic of La Campagne) led by Jose Roman Santiago, which started the revolution in the 5th of May, 1809 - 14th of April 1823.

The Revolutionary Government took control of the northern part of the archipelago, helped by the Dutch expeditionary forces to take over the islands of Lamik(mainland Neueburg) and Habbat(province of Adelaide) in the northwest of the archipelago which finally ended the Spanish and French control of the area.

The revolution divided the archipelago into two different territories, the northern part controlled by the Revolutionary Government and the southern part controlled by the British.

In 1857-1866, civil war broke between the Northern and Southern Territories known as the Battle of Montana which lasted 9 years. The Northerners pushed the Southerners backed by the British Empire into the city of Stratford where the British took hold in Fort Lopez, until the Ceasefire between the two parties was declared. They signed the Treaty of London in 1867 and started a new Republic "Federated States of La Union." The war torn plains of Montana was redeveloped into a new Capital.

In 1872, "Region Federal Nacional was established occupying areas near the Great Lakes of Antiguo, Achrann, Trois Monde, and Corriendo.

In 1896, the German Empire bought the Island of Lamik and a few ports in the South Neueburg (now the City of Wartburg.

La Union has experienced a great economic progress from 1872-1912 due to its Gold and Oil reserves being abundant. It was nicknamed as "The Gateway to the Pacific" for its strategic location.

World War 1:
The Karatakan Civil War of 1915-1921 (Karatakan Island)

Post World War 2:
La Union has regained its economic strength after the 1st World War. Motorway 1, which traverses from the City of Portsmouth going through Region Federal Nacional into the Cities of Montreal and New Montana, was built in 1931 due to the influx of car imports in the region. Several road networks were developed after including an airport in the south of the capital (Roman Santiago International Airport).

World War 2:
In 1942, the Japanese invaded the archipelago. It was until 1945 when the Japanese were pushed back by the La Union Defense Force together with the 2nd New Zealand Expeditionary Force.

Post World War 2/Dictatorship Period:
In 1945, a new Government was formed lead by Fernando Mariano(1912-1989) from Partido Obrero de La Union (Workers' Party of the Union). He stayed in power for 42 years (1945-1987) and ruled the archipelago under a dictatorship. San Antonio in the Province of Rio Grande was established as the New Capital in 1955 where the New Government Complex was Built. Due to corruption, Foreign loans increased, as well as the inflation and the La Union Peso has lost its value.

Post Dictatorship:
In 1987, civil war broke between the rebels "New Karatakan Rebel Army" and the Military. Due to public outcry, the dictator was overthrown and exiled to Guam. He died in September 11, 1989.

The Capital was moved back to Ciudad Capital de Montana in 1988.

La Union has slowly gained its economic power in the 90's where Ciudad Capital de Montana and its neighbouring cities were redeveloped.

The economy has been steadily increasing for the past few years and continuous development of cities into eco-friendly environments are evident. Even with the modern buildings sprawled around the country, marks of the past through architectural preservation efforts were made which is why there is a mix of Spanish, Italian, Dutch, German, Victorian, French, Soviet, and Native Karatakan architecture that are still surviving to this day in the different regions of the country.

I don't think there's any map more amazing than Greenfield LOL.

The World of Keralis, Mattupolis, and High Rossferry city though, in my opinion, are the best maps out there.

I'm very sorry about it, maybe wait 'til Friday/Saturday since I'm currently at the university and I have a lot of acads stuff to focus on. I'll reupload the .zip file on Friday/Saturday.
BTW, there's a small airstrip in the town of St. Joseph. An international airport is under construction and will be included in the next release maybe after 2 years LOL. Thanks! =D

Awesome map, as it would take so many years of effort to complete all buildings that form such a big city.
You've just got one more sub! ^_^

By the way, I'm also on the progress of building another large map focused on command block-based railway transit systems, but there are not yet as many buildings as yours. :)
Thanks! =D

Uhmmm, try to click "skip ad" after clicking the link. It will redirect ye to mediafire. Hope this helps.
I meant the download worked but when it downloads it shows up as an internet explorer file and it doesn't open at all. Is there any way you can make the download available as a zip file? I think it might be that rar doesn't work at the moment.
Okay, Imma try to reupload it, but it will take hours of time since the internet here in the Philippines sucks. LOL. Imma update ye once it's done. =D

Noch eine Frage: Machst du das auf einem Server? Wenn ja mit wie vielen weiteren Personen und wenn nein: Wie machst du das ganze Terraforming? :)
Yes, I use my hamachi server, but I'm the only one building in it. The only reason that I use a server is because of the world edit and other essential plugins that makes building easier. I do the terraforming in world painter which takes a lot of time to be honest. =)
