Bedrock – Build your future fantasy Cairns

The spawn world on the Bedrock server is the place to build your future fantasy Cairns city. We need roads, parks, a town hall, library in fact everything you need in a modern city. Its a big project and will take some time. The JAVA server has been running for 5 years and has a pretty good city now, check it out.

JAVA – Cairns City Centre Master Plan, December 2018 – ongoing

The current challenge is to build the Cairns Esplanade and Fogarty Park as per the concept drawing outlined in the Cairns City Centre Master Plan in the JAVA Cairns city to scale world. To do this take a look at the website https://www.cairns.qld.gov.au/council/major-projects/ccmp. See the consultation idea image below:

Esplanade Master Plan Concept

You will need to measure the areas using Google Earth and estimate the sizes that are represented in the concept drawing. Note the major changes to whats currently on the Esplanade: 12 – Florence Street Pier, 13 – Expand the parklands and 14 Re-design Fogarty Park. It’s quite a big job so just stick to one small area and measure and build as best you can.

Previous challenges

September 2017 – Cairns City Library

We have a new challenge, to build a scale replica of the Cairns City Library. Player KiloOscarOscar has been busy working on the ‘Cairns City to scale map’ and most of the property boundaries and roads are marked out so its time to build a showcase building. We have chosen the Cairns City Library for this project. Go to the spawn point and take the portal to ‘Cairns City to scale’ and head down to the corner of Aplin Street and Abbott Street. The black and white rulers on the plans below are blocks, so the building is 8 blocks high. The plans are below:
