Hello! I’m starting a city in 1.8 Creative! What a surprise! Another set of these rules can be found at the warp once the town hall has been built.
N O T E: Port Royal will be built using Yazur’s Lapiz Point texture pack [1.7.10] It is compatible with 1.8, but does not include new blocks. There is a 1.8 version out, but it’s horrible. 'Nuff said. Link for download is below.
Port Royal will be based off of late 1800s-early 1900s American and British architecture, but will be set in the present day with a downtown area as well. Some inspiration for the city came from:
Georgetown in Washington D.C
Downtown Aspen, CO (in the summer, no snow lol)
Bigger streets of Zürich, Switzerland
The dept. stores and western architecture of Tokyo, Japan
and Brooklyn, NY
How is the town layed out?
The town will be on a man-made river delta. There will be an oceanfront section as well as a riverwalk area lined with restaurants and shops. Further inland will be a freeway connection and a CBD (central business district) with newer skyscrapers and apartment complexes. In addition, Port Royal will also live up to its name with a large port and naval base. A fish market will also be located around the port area.
What are the restrictions, if any, on building?
Port Royal will have very strict building restrictions and regulations. Failure to adhere to these will result in your building demolished or a ban depending on the cause of the build (accident or grief).
