My own personal survival world.
This minecraft world focuses on the Zokesian Commonwealth, a budding empire full of diverse locations. Built in survival, but with an attempt at aesthetic and imperial building, the player spawns on the island of Zokesia itself. The largest settlement, Zokesia Island is the seat of government as well as the main center of trade and defense of the commonwealth (and the main player base). Featuring a town hall and expanding business district, the island also features the commonwealth's largest wheat farm, a tree farm, and a castle. There are also a large number of mines, although most are losing their usefulness.
Across to the East a few hundred blocks is the town of Lodestone, Zokesia's first settlement. Lodestone is the home to the largest sheep farm in Zokesia, and mines below give the area a hard but steady life. Walls to the east protect it from mobs, and a boat dock links to the main island.To the south, connected by two bridges, is Triodite, the small but upper class community built on an artifical island. While still under construction, Triodite promises a getaway vacation spot for Zokesians from the island and a home for well off citizens. An underground walkway also connects the island of Triodite with the mainland of Lodestone.
Far to the west, through two swamps, is the small but budding mining town of Diorite, named after the large mine east of the town. In a safe, walled community, the workers live and extract the quality stone from the large mine and ravine, which also includes iron, Quartz, and Andesite.
When the Diorite mine was exhausted, a new mining town to the north was built in a large flat stone mesa, perfect for extracting large quantities of igneous rock and coal. Dubbed "Stone Hill Mining Camp," the workers struggled and lived off the land to create an autonomous walled work site where raw rock could be harvested. It also featured the most successful cow and chicken farms in the commonwealth, allowing the populace to survive cut off from the rest of the world. A small road connects Diorite with Stone Hill, but it is unpaved and through a very dark and dangerous chunk of woods.
Northern expeditions on the mainland led to the founding of North Zealand and Cowstralyia, positioned on the island and mainland north of Lodestone. North Zealand was founded on the initial concept of lumber and sheep farming but its geography and small size gradually turned into a less interesting place of settlement than Cowstraylia, and so the land remains undeveloped past the many forms of trees planted, the administrative house on the water and the church built into the rock. The promise of cattle profits are leading expansion southeast, where small mines have already been cropping up, and the wilderness is being beat back by light. Cows and sheep roam freely and large farms are beginning to establish in Cowstralyia.
Other small settlements include a house far to the east, where a failed attempt at exploring an undersea temple was planned. West of that is a small watchtower. Between the watchtower and Zokesia lies two villages that are unaffiliated with the Zokesian Commonwealth, though there are plans for building a long road from Lodestone through to them. Another tiny, unaffiliated village is nestled in the cliff west of Diorite.
The farthest West settlement is a small explored Temple with a compound fence around it in the desert. It is lit up but currently unused.
Also, to the north there is a large sand island used occasionally for extracting sand when running short, and two small house and island combinations are built just east of that on the water.
