CivWiki Monday Newsletter
A weekly newsletter for Civ servers supported by the CivWiki

CivWiki Monday Newsletter for September 5, 2022

Good morning and happy Monday and Labor Day from New England! Another fantastic day for reporting on marginally important news from a niche political Minecraft server!

Quite a different week in terms of news, definitely a lot quieter than I was expecting, so it’s nice to have a change of pace this week? Who knows, I was volunteering for most of the week and not really paying attention that much on Civ. Anyway, here’s the news…

Over the course of the last few weeks Rekt_Tangle has been building the area up with brand new areas sort of evocative of a northern Italian style, including a trolley, a roman way, markets, and much more all seamlessly integrated into the landscape.

Featured Article

Carson was one of the most influential cities in Civcraft 2.0, serving as a landmark for both cultural and economic activity on the server. The country was highlighted by its large city sunken into the ocean. By the server’s end, the city was built up with large skyscrapers where many of its cooperatives were headquartered. The city operated using different cooperative companies to further the country’s growth. Among notable cooperatives was Carson Infrastructure Corporation (CIC), which dug and built a large network of international underground rails stretching across the server. Its additional claim in the nether also played a large part during the Nox and Titan wars.

Carson’s legacy lives on in many aspects of the Civ genre, while many notable residents would go on to become admins in future servers (notably, Jacinth_Joy on Civcraft 3.0 and iebagi on CivClassic), its city’s design as a stronghold in the middle of the ocean has inspired new iterations like CivCorp in CivRealms, and CivMarket in CivMC, while its rail design has influenced future rail projects like the HITS and the Great Overland Railway.
