What we have accomplished in a week of building

Week 1:

  • we selected our plot of land, it is a desert with a river flowing through it
  • we expanded/flooded the river so it is a little bigger
  • Kurtz has built a bridge
  • Jordan and Coby built dams in the river
  • I have started the 500x500 border around our building land (update: i finished border at end of class friday)
  • we have also build a park, and started on of our apartment buildings

Week 2:

  • I have finished the apartment building and i also flattened a large area of land for the city
  • I was not here Thursday it looks like they made a bridge and started a new building
  • Also Coby and Jordan made the hospital and the roof was taken off by an ender dragon spawned by an anonymous source

Week 3:

  • We have built roads basically along our whole city, connection the city to the suburbs
  • Also I have outlined plop stadium, which is next to the amusement park being built by Coby
  • I have also started the suburbs and building houses for them
  • Jordan made the mall
  • Ben has mostly been making the roads
  • Coby is still working on his amusement park

Suburbs construction

What I have been in charge of:

I was pretty much in charge of all residential, though Jordan is constructing the last apartment building and some of the homes, I was in charge of the stadium, At the beginning I was in charge of demolition of mountains and just flattening the land. After I finished these tasks I have been filling in empty lots in the city with retailing and food places.

Our scenario was that a neighboring city went to war with another city.

  • Our response was that we would not get involved, but our boarders would be open to refugees.
