Watch Dogs Minecraft Recreation

Pictures coming this week!

The closest Minecraft Watch Dogs map to the real thing!
Check out our Minecraft Forums post for more updates:  http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/2730914-watch-dogs-minecraft-recreation-an-open-world-watch-dogs-adventure-map/

Mission: To build a Watch Dogs Recreation in Minecraft, that is realistic to Watch Dogs, but staying Completely Vanilla.

As Ubisoft, developers of Watch_Dogs explains: "Set in Chicago, where a central network of computers connects everyone and everything, Watch_Dogs explores the impact of technology within our society. Using the city as your weapon, you will embark on a personal mission to inflict your own brand of justice.

Chicago's overarching network is known as the Central Operating System (ctOS), and it controls almost all of the city's technology and information - including key data on all of the city's residents.

You play as Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker and former thug, whose criminal past led to a violent family tragedy. While seeking justice for those events, you'll monitor and hack those around you by manipulating the ctOS from the palm of your hand. You'll access omnipresent security cameras, download personal information to locate a target, control traffic lights and public transportation to stop the enemy... and more."

In our Recreation, you'll be able to hop from camera to camera, viewing things from a distance. You'll be able to use citizens bank accounts to steal money from ATMs. You can view citizens personal data, from your profiler; the device Aiden uses to achieve control of ctOS. 

You can control bridges. You can buy guns from stores around the city, then use them to kill civilians or Criminals you catch. Be careful though, because if you do, you may trigger a police chase. You can buy and use grenades, and IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices), and you can also use lures to distract guards while you sneak away. Play missions in the map just like they are in the game... down to the details and dialogue. Go on unique "Digital Trips"; where Aiden experiences"temporary virtual games in his head." All of this and more is possible in our realistic replica of Watch Dogs, built completely in Vanilla from the ground up to create the perfect open world adventure map.

Activities and hacks possible:

  • Control CCTV Cameras, and hop between them to view the city from a distance
  • Hack ATMs and steal citizens money from their bank accounts
  • Hack bridges, stopping the police from going across.
  • Create cover and diversions by controlling different elements of the landscape.
  • Explore Chicago faster by driving a car.
  • Buy guns, explosives, lures and more in many shops located throughout the city.
  • Play a close replica of the missions in the actual game, down to the dialogue and details.
  • Explore an almost exact recreation of the Watch Dogs terrain, built in Minecraft.
  • Explore all 6 districts from the game, with unique landscapes and buildings.
  • Hack the many citizens located throughout the city, and view their personal details using your Profiler.
  • Play fun side missions to enhance your experience.
  • Play "Digital Trips", virtual games Aiden can experience.
  • Hack the L'; Train to use Fast Travel.
  • Hack ctOS Data Centers in each District, which enables profiling citizens and more hacks.
  • Cause massive blackouts throughout the city by crafting "blackouts", and use it to escape the cops easily.
  • Flee the cops who will chase you after committing crimes such as shooting citizens.
  • View your in-game map to locate your next mission, side missions, Digital Trips and more.
  • Buy items (such as guns, explosives, lures etc...) in Shops located throughout the city.
  • Keep track of your Reputation, killing civilians will cause it to drop, stopping criminals will cause it to increase.
  • View cut scenes similar to the actual game, which use teleporting to make characters walk around. Players view the scene in 3rd person (the player does not take part in the cut scenes, mobs enact the cut scenes.)
  • Experience everything our map has to offer and much much more!!

Since building the entire city would take too long for you to get to play it soon, we decided to use some buildings that we didn't build; that other people built. We will include a list of links to the projects and schematics used in this map.

One of the best features of our map is our usage of the new 1.8 mechanics, creating new opportunities that were not possible before. Also, everything in this map is completely Vanilla, since we don't believe in cheating by using Bukkit.

This map is the first project by our Map Making Team; The Z Team. We have 11 active members, from around the US and the world. Inside of our team, we have two different sub-teams. We have the Mechanics Team, and the Build Team. The Mechanics Team is run by naor2013, our master Command Block/Redstone guy. Many of our ideas on how to do the mechanics in the map come from him The Mechanics team makes all of the mechanics, such as hackable objects and the story mechanics, such as making dialogue and cut scenes. Zev613 runs our Build Team, (so is in charge of building the map, interiors and such). He is also the leader of The Z Team. We are really excited to release this map in September, and we hope you are too!!!!

We will be recording a Developer Series on Youtube, showcasing how we created the city and mechanics. The videos will be released on our Youtube Channel, (we will post a link once we release the first video). We'll be releasing the videos throughout the summer, but mainly during the month of August. We will also be releasing a trailer during August. 

Our Team is working really hard to complete this map and release it, but it will probably take us until September to release this map, so we thank you for being patient. We'll be posting pictures and occasional videos through the summer to keep you posted about development. They will also showcase what is possible in our adventure map.

Sorry I never updated everyone, but the project got too complicated to do with our small team, and not a lot of time between us, and each of us was in a different time zone so we couldn't Skype.
This project has been cancelled, but I do still have the files if someone else really wants to finish it.
Thanks for the diamonds everyone though, we had some good stuff, but we couldn't finish it.
