What is LondonCraft? LondonCraft is a new Bukkit MineCraft server based on an accurate 1/2 scale map of the City of London.
The area it covers is central London (image below) and will include all of the key tourist attractions such as the London Eye, Big Ben, the Shard and many others.
How accurate is the map? The map is based on a detailed OS style map and is approximately 1/2 scale with 1 meter equivalent to half a MineCraft block.
The buildings will be as close to half scale as possible, for example, the London Eye stands at 135 meters in real life which equates to 67/68 blocks high in MineCraft at half scale.
At the moment the map area is generated in grass to mark out the features and is ready to start being developed in game.
When will the server be available? The server is currently under development so may be down during the day (GMT) but will be up during the evenings for development and testing.
Once development is complete it will be moved to a hosting environment that will be available 24/7 excluding downtime for maintenance.
Can I help out with the project? If you'd like to get involved in the project please sign up here and request to be added to the white list via our forum's white list request topic. Once the server goes live the white list will be removed and the server will be publicly available.
Also, if you have any suggestions for the server please share them with us and we will take the best suggestions on board.
