  • Imperial Skyport Updates

    Alpha has a ton of airships and connecting airship routes.  They connect the various cities and locations around the world for easier travel.  My original concept was based on World of Warcraft, where the player walks up a tower and waits at a dock for the airship to arrive and transport them to the other end.  In Minecraft, I’ve set it up so that you walk to the end of a dock, and are instantly transported (via a portal) to the corresponding dock on the other end of the route.

    The Airship Network has three major hubs, all located in the Imperial Republic of Denbar.  Agrazahn is by far the largest of the Skyports, as it has the most connections to other places.  It is also the central hub of trading in Alpha, so it made sense to have a major international skyport there.  Pelagrir also has a large international skyport, as it is the home of the airship builders.  Imperial City is the third and smallest hub.  It has connections to all the other cities in the Empire, except for one (it has a railway).

    I spent the last few days updating the three major skyport hubs, adding in some details, and expanding a bit.  I also added some large signs displaying the city name!  Special thanks to Perry for making the letter banners for me!

  • Agrazahn Catacombs

    I had marked out the Agrazahn Catacombs years ago, but never really did anything with them.  It started out as a natural set of interconnecting caves and ravines beneath the city.

    I have developed it into one of my more massive places.  It has three entrances: in the center of the city, in the Tomb of the Sultans, and in the Great Pyramid.

  • Agrazahn: Grand Update

    I’ve begun working on a large Minecraft project.  Originally, I was waiting for 1.13 to come out, but I got sick of waiting.

    Agrazahn is my second oldest location in Alpha, and it was in need of some major updates.  I expanded the Great Temple, overhauled the Sultan’s Palace, and expanded the Great Bazaar.  I still have a lot of work to do, but here are some updated pictures :

  • New Imperial Senate

    I spent the last 2 days completely overhauling my Imperial Senate Building. It always felt too small, and a bit crowded.  It was also asymmetrical which bothered me.

    The building now has a central dome, and two wings.  The offices are much larger inside now too.  As a side effect of this, I overhauled my large Map Room.  I rearranged them and made the maps fit better, but I needed to expand a few to fill up the walls properly.  This is where I ran into an ancient issue.  The maps in the my Map Room were made eons ago, before they overhauled the map grid system. I couldn’t expand the maps, as new maps dont line up with the old ones. I had to redo ALL my maps.  Luckily, two provinces turned out to be on the new grid system.

  • Minecraft Website Update

    I spent yesterday doing some much needed updates to the Minecraft section of my website.  I had yet to add several of the new locations, and a handful of other pages needed some pictures changed out. I also updated most of the provincial maps for the empire, as the roads have been redone to look more natural.

    Here are some links to the updated pages if anyone is interested in checking them out 🙂
