My City of Newglim map is a very old world that goes way back to Alpha. A primitive world without all the naturally occurring exciting things that have been added since Alpha: no naturally occurring clay, red sand, rock types, tree varieties, plants, mines, villages, undersea stuff, etc... all are absent in the large areas I've explored over the years, unless I spawned them in in creative for video demonstration making purposes.

Newglim City is nearly 9 years old, everything in it has been built by my own fair hand first in survival and then out of necessity in creative mode. Nothing has been borrowed from any other map, build, building editor or mod. I'm pretty painstaking when it comes to wanting to create my own architecture and most of, if not all, of this city was built with a purpose in mind.

Newglim is something of a 'cardboard', 'Hollywood movie set' kind of world. Lots of constructions have nothing inside or only exist has facades or were constructed by me to try out certain textures for my Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack and to make Youtube demonstration videos, but there's still lots to explore for those familiar with Glimmar's Steampunk and for those suffering from 'GS' nostalgia.

For those unfamiliar with Glimmar's Steampunk it is now one of the oldest Minecraft resource packs in existence still supported by it's original creator...Glimmar!


.....Glimmar's Steampunk Resource Pack



Important Note: installing the Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack into your Resource Pack Folder is required to make sense of this world build. Glimmar's Steampunk fundamentally changes many block textures within Minecraft to reflect the theme of a Victorian/Steampunk world view. Using any other texture/resource pack will not break anything, but it will clearly not make sense. Installing Optifine is also strongly advised to get the best out of this world. Read on...


.....Using This Well Oiled Precision Machine


1. Download the Newglim City zip file from this page. Unzip the file into your Minecraft 'saves' folder.

2. Download and install the Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack here: Glimmar's Steampunk Resource pack

3. To get the very best out of Newglim City, using Glimmar's Steampunk you should try to install 'Optifine'. Optifine makes use of many extra custom features I've created - better skies, biome colors, lighting and HD font. Many of my terrain blocks, items and guis (even the sky!) are animated...working craftbenches, pulsing furnaces, flickering electrical items and strange alchemical contraptions! I also supply a huge range of random mobs, textures and special 'connected' textures - upwards of 3,000 extra textures to make the world a more immersive experience! Find the Optifine download here:   Optifine

Version Note: Newglim City v1 file download is labelled as working for Minecraft 1.12 it should also work for any version of Minecraft from 1.8-1.12 and will easily convert to MC 1.13. 

Newglim City v2 file download requires MCv1.13, Optifine for MCv1.13 and my Glimmar's Steampunk v21 (or later) resource pack to make sense of the world.

Please use the correct compatible version of Optifine with the correct versions of Minecraft and Glimmar's Steampunk resource pack.
