Minecraft Hoenn: Part 29/43: Mossdeep City

Part 29/43 of the creation of the Hoenn Region in Minecraft.

 Mossdeep City is the first of the four cities that are off the mainland. Mossdeep City is an island city with the usual Pokemon centre and mart, a gym and a space centre. Construction was paused for a few days because of family things and I got carried away with a new game I bought. But once construction resumed I wasn't stopping until it was finished. I don't know if anyone is reading this or just looking at the pictures so lets begin.

Mossdeep city is an island that is about 200 blocks wide. There is an area to the west that is under shallow water and the stairs that lead to the city are only accessible by walking thorough the shallow area.

Layers and layers and layers to make the mainland. I couldn't be bothered to take screenshots of the separate layers as I usually do. But hey. 

Sandy paths and convenience centres cloned from the nearest cities.

Mossdeep Gym presented a unique challenge. As these gyms are usually built underground to the north of the gym it would have been difficult with Mossdeep gym as behind the gym are cliffs and behind that is ocean. So the gym would either be built in the traditional manner with extensive and ugly modification to the landscape. Not to mention the intrusion into Shoal Cave which would likely  conflict with each other.  OR I could build the gym to the south by building a U-turn staircase. This avoids the landscape modification but the gym still needs to be deep underground as it still will extend under the ocean.

The interior is 40x56 blocks with a ceiling 5 blocks high.Why 5 blocks instead of the usual 3? well there are walkways that require additional headroom and 3 blocks isn't good enough.


Walkways. Unfortunately I haven't found a way to make the walkways dictate the direction of travel for the player. The tiles in the gameboy game have arrows on them and once stepped on the player is pushed one tile in that direction against their will. 

 Walkways sans arrows.

When you walk into the gym you are presented with this unique staircase. I think that I will use this technique to build the gym in Sootopolis city. But to the east or west or south. We'll see later. 


Houses everywhere. 

Mossdeep Space Centre is a unique location to Mossdeep City. That's pretty much all I have to say about it. Check the link for information.

Here's the second floor. I forgot to take a screenshot of the first floor. But you can check it out for yourself in the save game download. 

And there it is. All finished. 

Mossdeep City. Some trees are yet to grow. 

Now with more trees. 

Mossdeep Space Centre from the ground. 

Progress so far.
