City of Newisle v1.2 | Solo-built modern Minecraft city | Still in active development!
The City of Newisle is a modern Minecraft city that started with one goal: make a detailed and eye catching city skyline. And it became much, much more than that. The project began all the way back in August of 2010 during the early alpha days and has been kept alive ever since. It’s been done entirely solo and is my one and only world save to date – and it’s now one of the oldest Minecraft maps that is still actively updated to this day.
Newisle is not a 1:1 scale map with a bunch of beautifully designed but empty buildings. It’s a functioning place meant to be played like a Minecraft world. You’ll find stocked shops, apartment buildings and homes, office towers, minecart-powered transit lines and a variety of places meant to make it feel like a real, livable place within Minecraft. It can be used for survival scenarios, custom servers, roleplay and everything in between.
Since its early days of crude cobblestone structures and basic materials the city has grown substantially into a wide-reaching modern metropolis. Littered with historic monuments, crisscrossing rail lines and hundreds of fully furnished buildings; there’s no shortage of sites to see around Newisle and beyond – there are also 6 other independent cities and towns to explore outside of the core city. Though they’re smaller and with less stuff, they each have their own vibe and story as well.
Grab a minecart from Union Station or set out on foot using the highway system. A world map file is included with each download to help you get around this massive world. It’s yours to explore, survive or destroy as you see fit!
Latest build : Newisle version 1.2 – released August 24, 2019
The official Bedrock Edition port of the City of Newisle – optimized for tablets, phones, consoles and Windows 10.
Q: Did this really take over 11 years to build?
A: It was built over the course of 11 years, not 11 years straight. I’m dedicated, but jeez, I haven’t lost my mind. This was strictly a casual project by someone who likes cityscapes and urban planning. I took a bunch of breaks that ranged from weeks, months and even well over a year at one point. To put it simply, Newisle became one of those «too big to abandon» projects that I updated in between other hobbies and interests. Adding one or two buildings every once in a while just adds up over time.
Q: What inspired you to build this map?
A: Besides having a bit of an interest in urban planning, I like skyline and cityscape photography a lot, so Newisle is kind of an extension of that. The buildings themselves are inspired by my real world home city of Toronto as well as New York, Chicago and Montreal.
Q: What game version does this map use?
A: The map was worked on up until version 1.12, so your best bet is to stick to that or later versions. Earlier versions of Minecraft may corrupt the save file since this uses blocks from 1.12.
Q: Is there a server with this map that I can join?
A: Yes. Please join the official Discord server to get access to the City of Newisle dedicated server. You’ll need Java version 1.16.5 to join.
Q: Can I use your map for my project or server?
A: Of course. As long as you provide credit where credit is due I’m supportive of anything the Minecraft community does with this map (e.g. if you’re doing a YouTube video, a link to this page in your description would be much appreciated).
Q: Is Newisle kid-friendly?
A: Yes. There aren’t any signs with swear words or any questionable content. I’ve made sure to keep the map tame so that all ages can enjoy it.
Q: Did you use any editing software?
A: Yes, I used WorldPainter for some of the more detailed terrain, such as the mountains, and for smoothing out parts of the map that had gotten ruined by game updates over the years. I also used MC Edit for many tedious things like placing roads and for precise tasks like doing multiple stories in the buildings or putting in identical subway tunnels. Otherwise, there would have been countless times when builds would be 1 or 2 blocks off and would have needed a complete restart. And who would want to do that?
Q: What did you use to make the maps with (the images that come with the download)?
A: They are all my own creations in Photoshop.
