BenjaminStad (or BenjaminCity in English) is a large city located on the snowy plains near the Power Plant. It was founded on the 19th of March, 2017 by BenjaminBsuper. It is regarded as one of the biggest cities, with a very high population count.
The city is the center of the Benjamese Empire that rules the area around the city.
To limit the growth of the amount of grief builds, all builders need to ask BenjaminBsuper permission to build. The city rules are:
- BenjaminBsuper can remove, sell, or edit your building
- For example, if the building location obstructs future expansion plans for the city.
- PVP isn't allowed, in accordance with the Peace Contract 2017. Self-defense is permitted.
BenjaminStad was founded on 19 March, 2017. There was almost no growth in the early days of the city, and some people migrated away because the town was too small. The city experienced rapid growth in mid-August, with the population rocketing from 2 to 30 in four days. Many homes were built and the once-small town Benjamin founded wasn't so small anymore, rapidly evolving into a city.
In June of 2018, Avanlance created Tokaido Tower, pretty much out of nowhere. This skyscraper is one of the tallest in the Empire. The sudden creation of this tower inspired hprick to start Project Fleetgate, which sadly was never finished. Benjamin worked on preparing BenjaminStad for more high-rise development.
Capital of the Empire
Cities in the Empire are:
BenjaminStad is one of the few cities in Freedonia that's almost entirely built on a flat surface. In Dutch fashion, the city is built on land reclaimed from a lake. It's based on a grid-like planning, but due to many new builds, parts of this grid are not so clear anymore. Still, the blocky layout is pretty clear. Most of the builds are decorated spruce boxes that were given or sold to new players. New players would get one of these boxes and were allowed to edit them. Due to this, many different types of houses can be found, all consisting of a cobble/spruce/spruce logs cube in the centre.
The easiest way to get to BenjaminStad is to use the Nexus system, NW (Purple) 3. The nexus pad lands you right in the middle of the city.
You could also walk to BenjaminStad with the highway from Spawn to Ampcity, you need to walk until you see the wooden bridge on the left side of the road. Take the bridge and go down the ladder to enter the city. This way takes some time.
For those traveling to BenjaminStad by boat it is connected via a canal to the Enjoku Route. Take the BenEm boat route (constructed by hprick): through the Benjamese Empire Junction by following the buoys marked Red, Cyan, and White. It took a long time to make since ice surrounds the area.
There is no rail link to BenjaminStad and none is planned. The high cost of a long railway, and thus very long travel times in slow minecarts, makes it not worth doing. The Nether Highway project inspired BenjaminBsuper to think about making an NHS link from Spawn to BenjaminStad and another over to Ampcity, but in the end he didn't see any reason to proceed with these projects at the time. Rail links to other BenEm towns are being planned so, maybe a connection with other cities in the future.
BenjaminBsupers goal is to have a city with people that build together instead of seperately,like the building, the Treehouse. It is a building that was build by Turn_Off and CheetoZzZ. This goal has been reached in several occasions not only in BenjaminStad, but also in for example Tussenstad, a sister town of BenjaminStad under BenEm, where the three mayors have built many big buildings together, like Brandarix Tower ( hprick and IvanLeshev) and a house in the south ( Avanlance and crazy_kvo).
