Archland is a north European server hosted in Norway with somewhat of 40 players registered, sadly, many seem to have moved on, leaving our server with barely 15 regular players. It is open 24/7, survival hard and any building style is permitted with a map of 2500x2500 No lagg at ALL! We also permit looting and killing of others, but not destruction of structures. Also, since one can lock chests, its rare to find a possibility to loot anyone.
We've started accepting new players in and started planning 7 cities and the construction of one, a Steampunk style port city. Later a Pirate based city, Arabic style city, Viking/Norse style and some others. Each city can be in wars or alliances with others, trade routes and personal roles have already started appearing.
(ATTENTION! I highly suggest using the Conquest 1.7.4 resource pack, to capture the medieval look) Your text to link here... My newest project, a European/Scotland themed coastal town :) No downloading yet I just want to see what you guys think of my designs so far. I know its not much yet and it may take me a while but its going to be beautiful when I'm done.
