Hi, everyone! You probably haven't seen much of me, but I'm posting this topic to mark the beginning of my biggest project yet. Sancti Machina.

2014-07-14_12.23.19.pngImage Enlarger

 

With 1.8 coming soon, I am very excited about the addition of sea lanterns, a lighting source with the perfect look for the city's design. Now that Arda is in effect, I will most likely be scrapping Zerus. It was a fun project, but it is now obsolete and was too small anyway. If anyone objects to this or would like to recieve compensation, please post here now. I will not be able to demolish anything until all apartments that are currently being paid for are abandoned. Zerus has many useful parts to it that could be used in the construction of Sancti Machina.

The logo seen on the building is now the semi-official icon for the city. It could be changed at any moment, but this is currently my choice. The city will consist of this tower, which will serve as the entrance, and a larged, circular area that is walled off. The city will definitely be partially flat, however there will most likely be added hills and other landmarks in the future. The city is, of course, a futuristic theme. There will be land available for purchase, but all creations within the city must be built within creative mode and approved before construction, as it must fit the theme.

Keep in mind that construction has not begun yet or is just beginning. I am posting this thread to first let everyone know that it is indeed happening. This thread is specifically for updates and information about the city. If you have any ideas, comments or feedback, go here: http://tiny.cc/zqzzix

Here's to hoping that Sancti Machina is a huge success!

Update: August 21, 2014

I'd like to start by saying: It's my 1-year anniversary here at Veterancraft! It's been a great experience, and, other than a few select people who shall not be mentioned, the entire community has been friendly, trustworthy, and helpful. I'd like to thank each and every one of you for making this server my favorite, and home to some of my best Minecraft experiences. It's because of this very reason that I'd like to work on this project, to share it with all of you wonderful people! Speaking of which...


Stage 1 of my first building is finally complete! Introducing...


The Caelus Nova Beacon

I'd also like to thank Escerine for taking this next shot.

This tower will serve as the city hall. Standing 73 blocks high, this is only the beginning of the structure, albeit the longest step. Still to come is the interior, the different floors, and the symbol on the front. Speaking of which...


There is also a new design for the official Sancti Machina symbol! The glowstone will be replaced with sea lanterns when 1.8 comes around.

The main reason why I went with this was because it seemed to fit the city's name more. Also, the previous one looked kinda like a beetle.


So that's the update! Thanks for a great year in Vetronia and Arda, and here's to another one! Wink

Update: August 22, 2014

Yes, I know that it's strange to update again the next day when I haven't actually made any progress since finishing the beacon. However, this isn't an update on construction progress.


First of all, I am now accepting applications for living in Sancti Machina. While the land isn't actually fully claimed yet and there is still much progress before the city even begins to be a... well, city, I am now allowing people to post their designs for their own homes in Sancti Machina. Looking for a place to build your futuristic getaway, or a sleek home for a innovative person? Just post your application along with your design on the comments thread. There are no specific rules to this, All I ask is that you build what you think looks futuristic or matching with the current look. You may also ask questions for what may be allowed on the comments thread. The city should not have builds in it that make absolutely no sense with the main theme. Yes, you can make your designs with a different style, as long as it pertains to the theme of futuristic and tech-based. If approved, we will discuss price and zoning when the city has been properly zoned. As of now, there's only enough land claimed to keep the tower from blowing up in a fantastic display of TNT. I will update this later when plots can be sold for approved builds.

Second, I am currently having trouble with how the city will be laid out. There are plenty of ways to do it, so I will ask all of you what you think should be the layout. Should it have walls? Wide open? In a grid? Have your own ideas? Share yours in the comments thread and I will decide based on the most recurring response. I hope that some of you actually respond to this, despite not having any comments on my comments thread yet, as I won't be doing much for a very long time if none of you do. So yes, respond if you have any suggestions. Please? Laugh

Anyways, that's basically what this update is about. If you have anything at all to say, go ahead and post it on the comments thread. Seriously, I'm not very motivated when no one has anything to say about what I'm doing. :/ Either way, I'll see you for the next update!

Update: September 6, 2014

     Along with the sale on plots going on (check that out under Residences for Sale or Let), I think it's time to show you the current layout. Not much has been implemented, as I am waiting to see what kinds of builds are going to be posted. I did a little MSpaint stuff to draw the outline so far. Like I said, it's not much. But it's a start.

     First of all, I have decided to increase the size of the city to 351x351. It's a little more work, but I think It'll be worth it for the extra size. Second, you may have seen this tower in a post recently.

     I have come up with an idea for its use: A central area for a transit system. The openings can function as stations for a monorail system. I will need to adapt the tower slightly to face a more diagonal direction from its current state, but it would function well for such a system. If I go with this, it will be placed at the center location you saw in the layout earlier. The top monorail will also most likely enter the Caelus Nova Beacon for easy access to the entrance/exit.

 

     I hope these ideas are interesting to you! If you have any comments or questions, please visit the comments thread. I'd love for some feedback! Also, if you're interested, there's a sale I mentioned earlier to buy plots in advance for 7 shillings a block, which makes plots in Sancti Machina no more expensive than regular ones! Check it out under Residences for Sale or Let. I'll see you next time for another update!
