IAS | NFC - Modern U.S. City Project (De-facto Server/Project Page)

Level 43 : Master Architect
It is with deep sadness that I announce that Newford City is officially dead. Our host, unfortunately, deleted all the server files belonging to IAS before its owner could pay for another month of hosting. Myself, my own builders, some of whom have been close friends of mine for over three years are devastated by this announcement as we've lost major progress from the last six months, which can never be recovered. I'd just like to personally thank everyone who has supported the city project over the years and members, former and current, who have contributed in any way to the growth of the city. I thank you with all my heart.

We're really sorry that it happened to the server, sadly we couldn't contact George in time and I guess he forgot about the server. Everything on there has been deleted, your city, my Swiss projects, my White House, everything.

There is a link leading to the download of the plots for IAS, although you'll have to find your own plot. Any other file may be backed up but it may be a save from a few months ago.

IAS' server technician, who I will not name, had backups of the maps/city projects but unfortunately he found them to all be corrupted. Coincidentally, I was just about to ask him for a backup copy to do new renders when they made the announcement.

Well thats really frustrating..
Can I use this on a gun server? I might modify it for gameplay purposes, but I will give appropriate credit for the original work.

Depends. Could you give me more info about your server?
Sorry for replying late. I already own a CS:GO mini-game server called guncolony, which I used to have a planet minecraft submission for but I deleted it in fear of drawing in hackers (as it was rumored that hackers often join servers through planet minecraft submissions). I am working with a partner on a new server, which will ideally offer modern city combat with realistic weapon mechanics and kits. While our server is (quite obviously) not non-profit, we aren't looking for pay-to-win (Our current server's donation store only offers VIP and a plain donation option. VIP only costs $7.90 lifetime, and the perks are either cosmetic or obtainable by normal players at reasonable ease). However, I am sure that it will be a unique server, espcially with a great city map that the fight will take place in.

I've decided I'm gonna redo Midtown a lot, the mix of modern skyscrapers then suddenly 1920/30s buildings just goes against the realism said about this project, more updates to come in the next few weeks. Changelist:

-More secrets in Midtown (underground) :)
-Subway work
-Downtown development
-Reverting of biome from Ice Plains back to Plains
-Clearance of bad or unfinished builds (due to many reasons)
More realistic than GreenField. It has stopligts, stopsigns, etc.

If I were you, I would use the MrCrayfish furniture mod with this map; but people that don't know how to install forge mods probably wouldn't like it.. I wish the furniture mod was in vanilla minecraft.. But still, impeccable build, my friend! :D

It's usually not looked up to when a mapmaker requires mods for their map. When you don't need mods for a map, you just drop the map into your saves folder and play, but when you need mods for that map, it might take a little while before you can start playing.

yeah, we try to refrain from using mods as it'll probably problematic to those who don't know how to use the mods, and the mods themselves might be incompatible with future versions of MC, but yeah, anyways thanks!
