The Lost Cities is an ambitious project by gamers from around the world, who have elected to create a virtual version of what Egypt, Mesopotamia and the Indus Valley Civilization would have looked like in the years following the collapse of the Western Roman Empire. This ambitious mod also imagines what life would be like in dark, rain forest, jungles, plains and valleys. This new version of the game, The Lost Cities, gives players the chance to live a lifestyle based upon the choices they make throughout their journey. From choosing between various civilizations, to the kind of mounts you want to use and more, the mod takes you right into the heart of the action.
The Lost Cities makes good use of the most advanced visualization and terrain engine that could make such realistic cities possible. In order to obtain this, the game requires players to plan out their journeys quite carefully. For example, the terrain of each city is modified and can never be the same way in two different cities could look. However, this feature can also cause a few problems as some users have reported having problems in using this feature, especially when traveling long distances. Also, the game can be quite a hassle due to the fact that it requires a great deal of planning and management just to manage resources and build up cities.
One of the most popular features of the game is the City Storyline, which takes players back to the period just after the fall of the Western Roman Empire, where city building and economic growth were at their highest. The City Storyline mod will take you on a journey through the major cities of Mesopotamia, Egypt and the country of Israel – giving you the chance to live as one of the citizens of these civilizations. If you choose to go on this journey, you will be playing as the character of some of the most famous figures from these periods. For example, as you travel through the desert, you will be greeted by a merchant with the wish to establish a settlement, only to find that his daughter has been murdered.
Your task then is to find out who committed the murder and get to the bottom of this crime before entering the city and starting your life anew. The player’s interactions with the locals also plays an important role in the story and there are a variety of quests available that allow the player to obtain more information about some of the people living in the city. The mod allows you to start by focusing on one city, allowing you to slowly expand your character before moving on to the next. The story line moves at a nice pace, although it is possible to view the whole city at one time. However, it is quite possible to miss something important, resulting in a need to redo the quest to gain the necessary information.
The realism factor also extends to the textures and other features of the screen. The textures are correctly rendered, and the effects – such as smoke rising from a burning city – are highly realistic. The best part about all this is that it all happens in the environment of the game, which means that it will not appear as if the player has gone back to the ancient times. The realistic rendering does make the entire experience feel real. The city is filled with people going about their business, and it almost feels like they are in the real world.
The Lost Cities Minecraft Mod really does add a lot of depth to the gameplay. The mod makes the player feel as though they are in a fully fleshed-out version of the famous novel, even down to the minor details. For example, the marketplace is not just a series of trading stalls but has over 30 different vendors that the player can talk to. The city itself has a few different buildings available, each with their own unique use. They also have music playing in the background, so the feel of the city really comes to life. The Lost Cities Minecraft Mod really does put the experience into the player’s hands, creating a completely different experience from the standard games.
