Valetiae - Roman Colonia of Malta
Presented by Respublica and Origines

The Roman city of Valetiae is the administrative hub of the island of Malta, along with the isle of Gozo to the north. Founded by the Romans on the ruins of a Carthaginian settlement in the dying years of the Second Punic War it has flourished with the maritime dominance Rome has held ever since over the central Mediterranean. Caesar has just triumphed over Pompey at Pharsalus and the warring factions on Malta have withdrawn in the face of the Julii’s victory. Malta was untouched by the civil war however Gozo’s fields ran red with blood as Roman legion clashing against Roman legion and this has led to unrest among the once Hellenic local populace. A local religious figure known as Sasan is leading a rebellion that threatens the stability of the region and has so far been met with success, driving the Roman military from Gozo and even pressing deep into Malta. However Valetiae’s walls were strong enough to hold the rebels at bay and even now the legio prepares to press out to retake the surrounding area.

The city itself is relatively new, having been rebuilt following a series of fires in recent decades. As a result its districts are quite pronounced; a wealthy area filled with domus, gardens and shrines is mirrored on the other side of the city by those less financially able. Its centrepiece is an ornate basilica and forum district, neighboured by a large circus which is sometimes flooded for aquatic spectacles. Its citizens are also new, with many immigrating from a fledgling colony on the coast of Iberia, this coupled with a newly deployed legion sent from Sicilia by the Propraetor Gaius Verres means that the city is lively while its surrounding area is unexplored, the new inhabitants anxious when it comes to advancing out into Malta.

Will you climb the social ladder working your way up into government? Will you create a mercantile empire and bathe in golden denarii? Or perhaps you’ll join the legion and drive back the local rebels as part of a well-oiled fighting machine? From ancient ruin to thieves guild tunnel there’s plenty to discover in Valetiae and on the Isle of Malta.

How can I play on this map?

What is the server "Respublica"?

Respublica is a Minecraft roleplaying server based on Ancient Rome and classical antiquity, specifically the late roman republic around the time of the life of Julius Caesar. The server sees itself as a successor to the Romecraft brand of servers that were started by Stugace, which was based off of his resource pack, Romecraft. The server’s roots lie in an original iteration of “Respublica Origines” which has since split into the current branches of; Respublica, which develops ancient themed roleplay servers and scenarios, and into Origines, which creates realistic custom maps and has its own build team.

The server itself is modeled after a Roman themed-Game of thrones hybrid with many factions of families, as well as a legion, and various government positions. The current scenario is set on a beautifully world painted set of islands, Malta and Gozo, where in the aftermath of the civil war between Pompey and Julius Caesar, local rebels have taken up arms against the Romans. This creates many exciting opportunities for players with both PvP and PvE, as well as political and daily life roleplay.

The server runs off the Technic Launcher system with its own modpack and resource pack which greatly enhance the RP aspect of the server. These include public mods such as Battlegear 2 and Balkons weapon mod, as well as our own custom mods which add things such as a vast range of Roman armour.

We hope to see you apply for the server whitelist on our enjin page and to see you accepted!

Indeed, good Roman builds are hard to come by. I'm glad you like our interpretation of Roman architecture!

I've already joined the server by creating an account and doing the code. But whenever i go to log into the server again, it tells me that it will give me a code and logs me out even though i've already done that.

That's for linking your account to your enjin profile, not for joining the actual server. You need to enter the kick message code on your profile to link your minecraft. Once that's done you whitelist through the Respublica app process on the website.
Those are some sick ass renders, may i ask who made them?

Glad you like them! I (Leondonis) made all the renders.
Ah, yes the look great! Good job to him.

Thank you! If you want to use the texture pack yourself you can use Origines of Rome from my profile page or go to the respublica site and download their technic pack.
Very realistic images. I love it!

I can't even believe how epic this is.  Some of the images look positively real.  xD

I'm glad you like them. I was a bit worried the purple haze in most of the renders might seem too "fantasy", but now I can see it's working nicely.
This is awesome! It works very well and the custom textures are very effective.

Nice but i think Today's (or a bit older) Valletta itself would be much more interesting, it is also much bigger and pretty crowded, and the Very steep streets would be pretty interesting to see i guess. And of course would it be much more bigger. But anyways good project. Im not really into Ancient things.

Well we, as a group tend to solely focus on the ancient world, specifically Rome. A modern day build of Valletta isn't really of interest to us
Amazing city! You really made this good!

The city is based in history. While Valletta, the city in which the name is based off (and the original planned location) was built much later, the city's current location on our version of the Island is closer to the Roman administrative capital of the Island known as "Melite".
