VeteranCraft’s Community Event #6.5: Train Station Design!


Welcome to VeteranCraft’s next event, the train station design! The station’s new design is long overdue, so it’s time to get the design we have been looking for.

Where to Build

You should build the train station in your own world on creative so we can get a good design, and then either show us screenshots or give us the world file. The building will then be built in Vetropolis as part of our first timelapse! If you don’t know where the train station is, its HERE.


We are trying to add more color to Vetropolis, so the main block used should be red brick (like the VCU), or possibly sandstone. Use what you find necessary but keep the overall theme like Vetropolis. Note that the main frame of the build must be 36 (the back and front) by 40 (the sides) blocks and that you will be only designing the exterior and upstairs interior. The downstairs part that is already at Vetropolis will be kept. You would be essentially building a building over the existing basement.

To Recap:

  • Main building material to be redbrick or sandstone (other blocks as accents fine)
  • 36 blocks wide
  • 40 blocks deep
  • No taller than the neighboring Capitol Building
  • Preserves existing basement/functionality of station
  • Must match the Gothic/Victorian architecture style of the other public buildings in Vetropolis

Length of Event

This event is starting once this blog post is up. You must submit your design by 12:00 AM EST on Wedsnday, August 29th. To submit your design, post screenshots and description to the forum thread attached to this post.

    Since the forum thread is closed to comments, I’ll do it here.

    I am IN! …..Provided that the powers feel that it’s alright that I’m building the Archives AND could potentially design design the station. And the Archives is taking a lot of my time right now, so it’ll be interesting to see when I can fit it in.

    If only the single player commands mod was updated to 1.3, this would be so much easier to build.
