Hi everyone! My name is panacea, my ingame username is troublesbeless, and this is my attempt to build a small town.
Small towns in North America - despite having never lived in one - have always struck me as being beautiful. I love the architecture: the conjoined brick buildings, the huge bay windows, the meticulous attention to detail, are joys lost where I come from. So, when my friend introduced me to Minecraft, I immediately got to work on recreating (read: bastardizing) those buildings in actual small towns that I thought were especially beautiful. Podunk, MC isn't the actual name of the town; the current name of the town is Portarlington, but since I keep changing the name, I thought "Podunk, MC" would sum up my project quite nicely.
Here is what I have so far:
The town in MCMap
I'm building a waterfront, hence the line of mossy cobbles in the water.
I like your imagination and details!
What timeline is it supposed to be, "now-time"?
With all those brick buildings it kinda looks like a late 19th century early 20th century town!
Yup! The city is supposed to be in the present, but the buildings are meant to be from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I also planned to build a 1950s style suburb but I abandoned the project before I got there.
