I've decided to start working on a large personal project, purely for fun. The project is code-named 'The Citadel', but will likely reveice a new name later. A citadel is a fortified 'city', and the plan is to create a somewhat large medieval-inspired fantasy settlement in the valley of a mountenous terrain with large chalk cliffs. For extra fortification, the city will also be walled in. On a large intermediate cliffside atop the lower valley I have built a big palace that will look out over the lower city. The town center in the lower valley will be the main part of the city with a cathedral, townhouse/greathouse and all the kinds of facilities you may expect in a medieval fantasy city - a library, a butcher, a bank, a granary, a market, a storehouse, a baker, a sawmill, and so forth. On the hillsides I will create large housing areas, with a small secondary market on the mid-level valley on one side, and farmlands on the other side.

This project got featured on Minecraft.net! Read all about my interview by clicking on the link!

I started working on the first residential area. I have also create a bank, a guardhouse, and the first parts of an inner fortification wall. I have created around 10 new houses. I also added an image of the town layout in the image reel. I've also uploaded an updated version of the Imgur album with the progress in chronoligical order. Do take a look at it if you want to see more screenshots.

This map is not finished yet and I do not have any idea when or if I will ever publish it. I definitely hope so, but currently I am not working on it. I will only continue if I have the time and motivation for it.

tl;dr: I don't know. Maybe months, maybe years.

I don't know, but I am planning on making a full-fletched RPG-type map. My first aim is to start working on the actual citadel, which will be a city protected by walls and mountains. Once that part is done, I will consider releasing a first version of the map, but it might actually take years before the project is fully done. I mainly started it as a personal project to work on when I'm feeling inspired, so I don't have deadlines or fixed goalposts. However, I am currently more motivated than ever to work on it and hope to get a lot done in the upcoming months. As it's a solo project however, and I do not want to involve other builders, it might take a while.

Sorry if you were not looking for a long answer, but I'll leave it up so other people with the same question can also refer back to this.

Hey! I love your build. I was wondering how the progress has been? Your last update was 2 years ago.

I have not made a lot of progress. I've been busy with my studies, job and some commissions on the side. I do still want to make some progress at some point, but I don't know when that will be.

Thanks! There is no download yet. I want to have more progress done before I put it up for download. It may take some months until I get there I'm afraid :p
