Oddworlds Medieval Map

Iv decided to turn this town into an open world adventure map. I will keep posting screenshots of the various new things and updates I build here.

Current Features:
- A very large and detailed Medieval themed city
- 2 Smaller towns, one is a starter town and the other is a desert themed town.
- Fully explorable environment featuring roads, forests, caves, farmland and much more.
- So far only a couple of quests are included, but more are to come in future versions.
- 3 Dungeons of varying levels featuring traps, redstone puzzles, parkour and of course Rewards!
- Highly detailed map with hundreds of hidden area's and Items in nearly every chest.


Planned Features:
- Alot more quests
- Skill Guilds each with appropriate themed quests
- More ways to spend gold Nuggets acquired from quests/hidden area's
- More advanced dungeons (Hopefully some multiplayer based ones too)
- Train station for easy access between towns.

This City is best viewed with the texturepack.
*I have made a few changes to the colored wool, sponges and other objects on the texturepack allowing me more materials to build with, so it is highly recommended to play the map with it, else things will look very weird in places*

Credits:

The texture pack is a personal compilation I made containing mostly John Smith's and Doku's packs with lots of bits and bats from other packs too.

I have been updating this texturepack for quite a while so i cant remember where i got some of the textures from.
Here is a list of credits for the textures i can remember:
Spoiler:

Also huge credit to CNBminecraft for his tutorials and schematics for the hidden piston stairs and the 4x4 Piston door used in the Ruins Of Amor.
Check out his youtube channel here for great videos and redstone tutorials.

Very Nice, I am building something similar, except in a roman/greek style. My only crit would be that the rooftops all seem too uniform, in real medieval life, there would be different types, like mudbrick, thatch, stone etc.

Otherwise, Its fantastic. Keep up the good work :-)

Like Rishua11 said, different roofs would make it have a more realistic feel. Other that that, this is brilliant work!

Thats a great idea! Ill start trying out some different roof designs to add a bit of variety to the buildings.
Thanks for the feedback  :P

I could not disagree more.

It's a medieval city that is walled in and protected by a castle. It has a sewer system and a harbor, these things aren't thrown up like ramshackle buildings. They are all built the same.

td;dr this is a city not a town

you do have a point in that, I don't know,  I just personally feel it would look better with some minor differences. Its not in the way he has built it, but merely, the repetition of the textures that the game comes with, mixing up materials, just draws the eyes away from the fact that a roof being built by all wood or all dirt just looks like a bunch of mirrored blocks.

anyway, as i said earlier, fantastic job Oddworld. Maybe i'll post my stuff someday :-)

I checked out the server and couldn't help myself modifying one thing. Those bridges with a roof, the ceiling is too low, I edited one of them to show you it can look could better like that. Hope I don't get greifer-alerted :D

Heyhey! Wait! I didn't actually give any feedback... Well... I wish I could redo the town I made and make it like yours!
I love the cranes on the docks, did you come up with that by yourself?

I actually first saw the cranes in Cynicis' Crown of Kalin map, which was the first medieval map I ever saw, and it amazed me so much that I had to have a go at making my own little town  :P

You should definately check out his map if you like my town as his is on a larger scale compared to my little town.
