Minecraft 01 - Forest Arcology by greenjinjo Minecraft 01 - Forest Arcology by greenjinjo
Just a few things I've been working on in Minecraft (creative mode) lately...

This is a forest arcology (arco) based off of SimCity 2000. Unfortunately, it's too big to really be seen in a screenshot. Most of the interior is done, with levels of farms, cabins, town facilities (hospital, gym, etc), and of course, the owner's suite on the very top.

Unfortunately, I don't play much Minecraft anymore, so I probably won't get to it :( Though it is a good idea! :)

I think you could make posters of this work if you applied sonic ether's shaders and sell them as fan art, if posted in the right reddit by, say me or any other fan your minecraft art. I know that if you had nice looking architectural drawings as posters in blue and white they would bite your hand off on r/shutupandtakemymoney or any of the minecraft sub reddits.

Acalander showing your builds would be great for this or next year.

This looks absolutely fantastic! Congratulations on all the hard work: it really paid off! Would you mind going into a little detail about how you made it? I know there are on-line tools for generating circles and spheres for use in Minecraft, but I always find them very tedious to form in the game, and often wind up one block off when I try to connect them.

(What with the appearance of this on /r/minecraft, I'm sure you're being deluged with requests for a download or a schematic. User polyolyver has offered to host it for download. (link to that comment thread)

Well to start off with, this WAS really tedious to make haha :) In fact, the inside really isn't fully finished.

Each ring on the arco is made up of several huge circles, getting larger at the center and smaller outward. I used either a picture I found online or made it myself in Paint of what a circle of each size would look like in pixels, and then I built that in the game for each layer. I made a quarter of one ring like that, then copied and mirrored this to make the rest of the ring, and then I copied each ring several times to get the thing you see above.

In general, the only part that was copied was the empty shell. I still had to fill each ring in by hand (hence why it's only partially complete!) Some of the rings are similar, but in general, there's a farm ring, a few housing rings, a few "town" rings (library, gym, etc), and the forest walk on top.

Hopefully this helps some, check out the Reddit thread for a DL link and let me know if you have any more questions :)

Thanks man, I played it following the long path to it, have you played galactic craft, you could make the launch arcology in space or a ship like the forest ships from the film Silent Running

I want to build the simple arcology from sc2000. I have seen someone do it on the net but the scale is too small, not accurate. our server is called weebritain (after arested developement and the server is U.K. based)and the rules are strictly vanilla (can be found on/whitelisted on reddit).

maybe build a villager trapping platform adjacent the dome level. villager trapping/curing can be easy if you use a long tube with doors either end (put torches inside) get the zombie villager to chase you in and board up the doors with cobblestone.
after he's had his weakness potion and golden apple ity on't be long till you get a villager.

Thanks! I can send you the structure in an email if you like. The world folder that it's in is 170 MB or so, but I can put just this building in a new map for you to check out if you like. Send me a note with your email if you'd like me to send it to you.
