UT Dallas is a public state school in the University of Texas System and an emerging research powerhouse. The beautiful UT Dallas campus, which has been designed by world renowned landscape architect Peter Walker, provides a starting canvas and inspiration for the starting terrain of Polycraft World.
The Polycraft World Simulacrum
The Polycraft World Landscape is designed as follows:
- UT Dallas is in the center of the map.
- In the northwest, Companies will be able to claim land. These features will be released in early 2016.
- In the northeast, Private Property lands are passed out to anyone who signs up for Polycraft World. Each player's personal domain consists of 7 by 7 chunks or 112 x 112 blocks. There is a one chunk (16 x 16 block) buffer around all personal private properties.
- In the southeast, Base Camps are distributed and increasingly larger intervals. These are private properties to which you can teleport from other private property to aid in bring resources from afar back to your private property. Silicon Ore and Cinnabar can only be found at large distances from UT Dallas, (i.e. any chunks that had not yet been explored when 1.3.5 was released).
- In the southwest, there will not be any private properties. This land can be explored via traditional means (foot, horse, boats, chained nether portals) or newer means (running shoes, pogo sticks, scuba gear, jet packs). No one will be able to teleport to or from these areas.
