So a couple months ago, back around October / November, I ran a build server for the Penny-Arcade.com forums that hosted mostly megaprojects. One of the things we put together was the City of Rapture from the Bioshock games - an anachronistic underwater metropolis. We filmed a little machanima at the time, which you can view here: Part 1 & Part 2. I also did a quick flyaround recently since I got Roundaround's Crystal Clear Water mod working.

I dug this old map out of a hard drive I was backing up on the machine that used to host the server, and I thought I might post it. It was made back in Alpha, which is why you won't see some of the newer blocks, and also why we didn't do a whole lot with redstone - it didn't work at the time. It was done entirely by hand, including the mining and creation of materials, with the exception of recently using MCEdit to clear a spot on the ocean floor out to drop it into a new map by itself. We had Minecart Mania running on the server, which is how our whole metro/tram system operated back then. If you have an autocart-esque mod running, I don't see why it shouldn't still work - might just take a little renovating. It should spawn you by the Lighthouse - head on inside, and you will find the Boathysphere™ Ride, which was how we got into the city before minecarts worked in SMP.

I will probably be releasing some other stuff in the next week or two as I find time, including a flying city map. Enjoy!

Right you are. Sorry - fixing. That's what I get for using Linux without knowing how to use Linux.

Edit: All fixed up, enjoy.

I'm new to Minecraft, how do I open maps? Since your map looks swell, I wish to play it. Very bad.

Use an archiving application like WINRAR or WINZIP to extract the 'world' folder in the zip file to your C:\Users\[YOUR USER NAME]\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves folder.

Start up the game, find the world in the list of singleplayer worlds, play. Enjoy.

Yes, it does.   I was playing this map for awhile.

I happen to be a fan of BioShock & Rapture.

Edit:
Is there a server that has the recent  version of this map online?
I also have a Playstation 3, along with the Xbox 360.  PSN ID is the same as Minecraft ID.

As a City builder myself, I find this absolutely stunning!

Its very unique, very detailed, has a lot to discover! I was roaming around figuring my out of the area i was in while being attacked by random mobs.

Very good work, loving it.
