First you must unpack the rar-files. Then you can move the folder karsthafen_2013-07-27 in the worlds folder of minetest.

Then you can start it as singleplayer if you select the world
karsthafen_2013-07-27 [minetest]
in the singleplayer tab

Or you start a server with
minetestserver --worldname karsthafen_2014-07-27
And then connect in the client with the Server 127.0.0.1 in the client tab.

In the map, you can folow the streets to the main attractions from 0,0,0

---------

As second image today a view with the church square and the entry to the subway in the foreground and the actual build ground in the background.

I don't know. In my download is the folder with all required files. I hadn't tried to use only the map.sqlite before.

This time no new picture. Two in one day is enough. :D

Was the download successful?

This time a picture of the night in Karsthafen. Lights in the houses, but no streetlights, so its very dark in the night on the streets. The very low light pollution makes Karsthafen a very pleasant holiday resort. ;)

I don't know, i havn't used the function to download all files in once yet. I have testdownloaded the 6 files seperatly on the page.
I think, the minetest.zip will have the 6 .rar files in it. So after unpack the zip, you must unpack the rar... :D

What do you mean with 200 MB in a page?
The Karsthafen-Map is as rar-file ca. 1.2 GB big, in 6 parts a 200 MB!

Is Dropbox too slow?
I can attempt to use MediaFire with the next version, if the site is better. I think in a few weeks, I will upload a new version of the map.

The new image of Karsthafen is from a actual building lot outside the city. There will be the "Königsburg" (Kings Castle) in a future version. As the first building of the castle, I'am working on the throne room. Here a early incomplete version. :)

Hi there,
I am playing together with solars on the map "Karsthafen". So I wanted to post a picture of my buildings as well.
Here you can see a soccer stadium I started to build a few days ago.

This is curios. The download of all 6 files at dropbox should be available without a account...

For all who has problems with the dropbox-download, or want to see a actual version of the city himself, I have now a new download of the historic district of Karsthafen as flying isle in the sky:

http://www.mediafire.com/download/vuma9 ... -09-03.zip

And here is a picture of the entire map in this download:

Ok so i downloaded it from mediafire and it is amazing! The only problem is everything is in Dutch, or whatever language is written on the signs

The language on the signs is German.
We might translate them to the English language when the city "Karsthafen" is finished.
But I am sure it'll take some time till it's done.

Here is a photo of the press centre in my tennis stadium.

I hope it looks realistic...

I'am happy that the download works now... :D

Then in near future I will upload a new segment of my map. The Devils Towers completion is near. :D

At the moment, I work on a parcour high in the tower:

Image

It's not easy to build a good parcour inside the tower. But I hope it will be satisfying.

1/2 of the parcour is ready, but the next 1/2 of the parcour I have a problem to find ideas to make it varying, so I hope some of you have ideas for me. ;)

And I want to ask all of you who want to run the parcour: Should it be difficult, very difficult or hard to run?

I'd love to take a look at the map, especially since the buildings seem to be of high quality - plus the city seems to be a large planned project. Unfortionately, mediafire does not work as a download site. It is unusable.

Would it be possible to record part of the map with the special download-client? That usually leads to far smaller file size. I'm not entirely sure why that is so - compare the ~150 mb of Redcrabs world (and yes, that encompasses all the towns and huge structures) to the several GB the map covers on disk - it's an immense reduction. I guess it comes from not recording all those mines, places without buildings, and chunks of air.

This sounds fantastic. Where can I find the special download-client? When this is possible, I will do it, but at the moment, I don't know how...

The image this time is from the unfinished Jagdschloss (hunting lodge), that is a part of the Kings Castle:

Try this if you need a pre-compiled client for Windows, or sfan5's github repro if you are able to compile.

It might also help if you could make the server available for connections from the outside for a short time.

I have build the minetest from this repro. But how get I the map, or find the download-client?

With the special download client, the map is automaticly saved in the folder bin/localmap/ in leveldb format. The map-saving client may not help that much if it's run from the same machine as the world runs on I'm afraid - much of the reduction originates from network beeing extremly slow and thus only the most basic chunks of land loading (and not, i.e., large amounts of underground and air).

Hope you manage to reduce the file size.

You may also consider pointing OldCoder to the map. If he spots it, he'll most likely offer to host it so that players will be able to connect and enjoy it on a server without having to download the full map. Players who enjoy the map may start building, and it might turn into a fork of your map, which may or may not be desired.
