We started sketching out where we want things to go in our city. Our first attempt wasn't very good. We quickly realized sectioning things off into 'Institutional Land' or 'Residential Land' wasn't a very practical. So, we redrew it. We have all of the different sections together so things weren't so far apart.
This week we started in minecraft. We picked an island that we felt was best for our layout. We started by flattening out the land. I am now working on building the hospital.
This week I continued working on the hospital. The bottom floor is the welcome area. It has a front desk, chairs for the waiting room, and a separate room with books and a table. The second floor has hospital rooms with beds for patients. The third floor has an x-ray room and a surgery room. The top floor has a helicopter pad.
We now have a train station, a tower, a church and cemetery, a boat house and a microbrewery.
We started putting in roads and we outlined land and marked it as different buildings.
