    Owner Update


    I'm constructing a new spawn, and here will be a train station - as well as a place to get a starter kit and some food.


    There will be a train station here, 1,000 blocks North, East, South and West. The idea is, you folks can get on and find an area in any direction, find a nice spot and get building. At 1,000 blocks there will eventually be a relay station to keep it going for another 1,000. The train lines will be over-ground, as to not get in the way of people mining / tunnelling. Plus, how would you know where is nice to build? I'll regularly go on and look for / delete phantom carts that get away or accidental damage that goes unfixed.


    Anybody who wants to come on is welcome, if I remove you it's because you didn't come on - but if this is a mistake please post and I'll re-add you.

    You're banned and the map has been restored too since before you came on. Reason: damage to the spawn base.


    Anyone else seeing this, this guy's not a good bet for your world's.

    posted a message on Redeveloping my 8 year old Creative Map

    Hi guys, this will be a long one so unless you want to get invested, this might not be for you! I started a map in 2014, originally survival with some family and friends. Eventually they dropped off but I kept building and expanding and setting out for new projects. Earlier this year the map looked like the Overviewer rendering below. Left from right, I'd built: my high school, two fast-ferries, a multi-level shopping mall, an early 2000s office / apartment block, a 1600s cathedral, an original made up design castle and a 1960s shopping centre / town centre complex. This was enclosed in a circular road / wall and outside of it is mostly untouched land reserved for survival. All of those builds are based on real life, built at a 'playable scale' (1 block = 1 metre usually) no huge empty, un-renderable monstrosities. In between was what I tried to create as a community of residential housing and other little easter eggs and amenities. Every building is complete with an either realistic layout / interior, playable in game. Every shop sells an item / item group useful in game.


    The problems began in August this year, I lost the map after clearing out backups and moving a lot of data on the same weekend and for months have scrambled to get it back, what I could recover was a horrible chunks-missing / rotated and overgrown in jungle biome... a true nightmare. I'd lost my 8 year old map. All I had was a 2017 version - drastically underdeveloped and with early attempts at the shopping malls etc. And a 2021 version from a site I tried to get someone to convert to Bedrock but couldn't. I was able to recover this 2021 version, losing all my 2022 progress: the office block, new residential areas, fitting out of the malls with shops and stock rooms etc to extreme detail and attention......


    It's taken me a while, but now I am working on a new plan / massive overhaul for my 'built up area'. Some large builds will of course be preserved and built around. It'll take me a while to get the motivation back to re-do all those time consuming insides of the shopping malls etc. I plan to work according to the UnMiNeD map screenshot below. Widening the central river and building new street layouts.


    I'd love to hear your ideas and if you are interested, I'll post updates as I go along.


    I am tempted to someday commercialise this map, with an economy world where joiners play in survival with ranks / factions maybe, but come to this built up (protected!) area to trade / buy things and maybe do events or warp to mini games. It's a big idea and I'm a LONG way off. This world / seed is also an August 2014 version, perhaps players won't be interested in that anymore..


    for now it is about bringing the built up area into the modern world, less little village houses, more detailed themed slightly bigger streets with variety and character that people would love to explore and play in.


    Some solid ideas so far:

    • New train station / subway system
    • Central square in city with clear path to survival zones for commercialising / server use in future

    ...but that's all I've got.

    First real update, we've been live for a few days. Only one of the three players added have been on. But some exciting developments for anyone else seeking to join.


    SPAWN BASE / GOVERNMENT HQ NOW NEARING COMPLETION

    So this is a map with origins back to 2016. I have now nearly fully restored the base near spawn. Here's what it's for.


    Community Support In-Game

    Need advice? Tips? Help? Loans? You can leave a message for me (the admin / SBminecraft) and come back to read my reply. This overcomes timezone differences. I'll be running the server in creative.


    Jobs & In-Game Rewards

    Embark on projects where we'll supply materials etc and then upon completion we'll reward you with rare items and enchants etc.


    Infrastructure Projects

    We plan to built simple rail stations that cover every few hundred blocks. In the long term, we will maybe move spawn - so that new land generated in with new game versions is easy for newer players, but with rail connections back to built up areas.


    Status

    Long term, regular and skilled players can build their reputation with things like statues, trophies and being knitted into the lore of the map in museums and things we build as time goes on.


    Come on and join the community. Largely we aim to be a vanilla, pure and simple survival community with no frills, but a great atmosphere and in-game banter.

    Hi guys, old Minecraft world I've had sitting around. Thought I'd put it on a Realm and try get some regular players. Money isn't an issue, so as long as people come on and maintain a community I'll keep this alive. It's on for 90 days so far.


    I used to play this with my girlfriend, cousin and some friends but they're all grown up and past Minecraft now. Thought it'd be fun to come back on.


    World is from around 2016, but a lot of new generated parts will be the latest version.


    Let me know if you want added!


    Thanks,

    SBminecraft

    Hi guys, I'm uploading a world I've played creative for since 2014. Initially, as a Realm to get it finished with your help and find some moderators, then someday perhaps a community / economy server.


    Ultimately it will be some protected creative cities / towns / amenities - with a select group of mods / trusted and talented builders able to further develop zones. But for everyone else, survival mode outside of the built up areas.


    This is the tour / talk through of it all:
