What is Newport?

Welcome to Newport! Newport is a large city founded by snakyman that is located in the June 2020 southwest expansion. Originally known as Project 42, the city was founded by the day after the expansion. The plan was to create the largest city in Freedonia, with the help of many people designing their own districts. The city tries to strike a balance between functional minecraft city and cool looking realistic city. For full list of our automatic farms, see the page Newport Industrial District. Despite being very far out in the map, there is a canal there and it is accessible via the Newport Route. You can get here through nexus light blue (southwest) 1, as well as, Newport Highway from HyperRoute 15 and Ellandria. From Jibtopia along HyperRoute 10 and ChivalricCode's Loop Road. There are residential zones, and an industrial zone with many farms - read more below. There is also a commercial district - The Brick Mall. Newport is the Capitol of the Newport Empire, and directly owns Finland.

Major History


The idea of Newport was started by snakyman, recently unbanned, KingServal, witchy1000 and Markrafter9 in May 2020 when they realized that there was a lack of towns being created in MCO at the time. They believed it to be due to every new player in the server at the time being pressured to join New Eden. The plan was to have multiple people running their own district of the city, almost like multiple mayors, to run the city and attract more attention. They wanted it to be a community build, not something planned out and built by the creators of the city. The group called this city 'Project 42' and began looking for a spot.

Finding a Spot

The June 2020 Expansion happened soon after this plan was made (some believe the expansion was inspired in part due to the requests of new land to build a large city by this group). Many people began exploring the land before it was even visible on the online map, snakyman among this group. snakyman wanted to quickly find an area with flat land and some water nearby to begin construction. He found a decent spot and built a little sandstone pillar there to mark the spot. This pillar still exists today!

Early Construction snakyman began finding players to help landscape the area. Many were teleported, but most had to take the long trek down from Drocata Swamp. A nether road was eventually made from Drocata. The first thing built was the double roads coming from the docks in the city center. Small skyscrapers started popping up there (but are nothing compared to the ones in the city elsewhere nowdays).

Remember the other original planners talked about in the 'origins' section? None of them were active or helped build the city at all so snakyman became the de facto mayor of the city. Around this time, Darkerfly built a house on the extreme hills biome next to the city. snakyman knew that if another settlement was built there, it would be an impediment to progress, so he invited Darker to join the city. This created the first districts, the City Center, snaky's area, and High Hill, Darkerfly’s area. Snaky later created more districts and appointed leaders to them.

Newport quickly became the hub of the southwest, which it still is today. The city was the only nexus in the far southwest, and served as a lifeline for every other city and settlement in the region. Pretty much every settlement in the area stemmed from Newport. There are probably at least a dozen outgoing road, nether road, boat or rail connections. This allowed for easy access for new cities to grow. The city has maintained being one of the most (or the most) active cities in the server consistently for over a year, which few settlements have been able to do.

In 2022, snakyman announced the creation of The Newport Empire. The empire is composed of numerous cities, and is headquartered in Newport. The capitol complex is the building complex of The Creamlin 2.0 and Snake's Manor.


On the 11th of August 2020, a huge lag issue occur at Newport where players were barely able to move in certain chunks where fps drop to extremely low and almost freeze the player movement. Admins investigated the problem by trying to remove the tree farm and even the river but nothing worked. Therefore the name of Lagport was born.

< Drdrs> Petition to rename Newport to Lagport
  • The fps drop issue was fixed on the 17th of August, the reason was discovered that the lava drop in SanityBGon's tower accidentally worked as a lag machine which caused the whole lagport thing. And when the lava drop was removed the lag has disappeared and Newport turns back to normal. Even though the issue has long gone the name Lagport and still being joke around by players when they face lag in Newport.


2021/02/15: Newport was mass addition griefed by an unknown player using over 3000 cobblestone and scaffold hacks. The grief was discovered the next day. The griefer could not be identified at first, but later, Ted1246 checked the grief logs and banned Sigmay for griefing. This ban was quickly reverted, as it was found to be a mistake. SurvivorDan2019, who turned out to be SailBird, a former moderator who ban evaded and was modded on two more accounts, and utterly fucked snakyman's other towns was found responsible for the mass cobblestone grief and was banned by The_Jackal_249. This was one of the biggest griefs on MCO, however, when Admins appeared, all the cobblestone was removed and the whole city restored. This grief was nothing compared to what snakyman had to deal with in Snaketown and New Snak City.

Permission Structure

To make permissions simpler, because MCO's permission rules are very specific, and Newport is complicated, this is how the permissions are laid out:

  • snakyman is the 'owner' of all the roads, unclaimed plots, city staff operations, and claimed areas for the city. snakyman extends permissions to these to the city staff.
  • High Hill is in a joint ownership between snakyman and Darkerfly, but mainly darker as he founded it and built most of it. High Hill is not sovereign.
  • District leaders are subject to promotion/demotion by snakyman (except for Darkerfly, unless High Hill is separated from Newport as well).
  • Plot owners are given plots, but will need to place a sign specifying that they give unconditional permissions to the plot to the town staff.

These rules are still in effect and work very well!

City Staff

Newport City staff by order of promotion, the district they are in charge of, and their staff rank.


Remember we had that? In 2021,

Holiday parties/End of Year parties

Newport staff occasionally hosts holiday parties! Maybe we will put more detail about past ones but from now on we will put more detailed descriptions of new events. They usually take place at Newport's party island in the swamp district.

Newport Easter Event 2022: Crucifixion!

Newport Crucifixion event! snakyman released this message in the Newport discord at 12:35 AM EST:

Newport crucifixion event @everyone ! tired of fake religious fake easter bunny and gay ass eggs? come crucify jesus!

The event proceeded, gamerTM1234 played jesus, and players put him up on a cross at party island!

Newport Metropolitan Area

The city has sparked various builds and settlements outside of the main city area that are dependent on Newport and its Nexus. Generally players who live here like to help with builds within the city and infrastructure in/around it as well. Many of these areas were made during the June 2020 expansion, and the only link to their area was a road or nether road from Newport. They generally have good infrastructure connections to the city. Some of these settlements include:

Areas formerly dependent on Newport Nexus

Note: PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD do not build something near the city without asking us first please thank you


Here are some pictures of newport:

This is a list of everyone that "willingly helped" terraform, build roads, and dig out the city in its early days:

These people cannot be thanked enough because it is really hard to start such a massive project and give it momentum without lots of people in the beginning.

Comments on Newport (Guestbook)

*leave your comments here.
< Zappingsbrew> Newport: The Best City Ever! 10/10 Would reccomend.
< Darkerfly> Newport is okish. 5/10


  • An idea of new city was brought up by KingServal and snakyman, naming it Project 42 at that time, long before the map expansion. In fact, this conversation may have been what inspired the expansion.
  • 2020 map expansion: snakyman went out to the wild and chose a spot by the river, and start asking for help to set up a new city in the new land.
  • Founding of High Hill: Darker built a house nearby while snakyman was planning Newport.
  • 2020/05/21: Earliest known mention of the word "district" by snakyman; terraforming initiated. Considered the founding anniversary of Newport.
  • 2020/06/02: Newport Discord created.
  • 2020/06/02: New Bielefeld created (martin joinee).
  • 2020/06/04: let's not talk about Penis Precinct
  • 2020/06/06: "Newport" mentioned [where?].
  • 2020/06/17: Industrial District created; DorpEngineer joins.
  • 2020/08/28: Suburban area created.
  • 2020/09/09: DorpEngineer was slapped by the banslapper.
  • 2020/11/12: Earliest known mention of Swamp District.
  • 2021/03/24: IconPippi was prodded by the banstick!
  • 2023/01: Newport Contributor Caesena successfully “backdoored” the server and was revealed to be former Newport staff IconPippi[source]. Some builds made by Caesena were removed due to using illegally obtained materials, and other items were removed.

Darkerfly telling you why you should join Newport

< Darkerfly> I myself joined Newport purely because I wanted snaky's head, but I stayed cause I can see the potential of Newport, allowing players to express their creativity and being the center hub of new players that live in the new expansion, unlike the majority of the cities on mco, you can see Newport having each players uniqueness on their buildings and the building style of each district, showing what is lacking from other cities, the power of the community and the people's own creativity, with that I believe we can achieve something beautiful. Together with the crew we have, I believe we can make Newport the greatest city on mco. And I am here to ask you to help us achieve the goal together.

-is darker running for mayor. - DorpEngineer
-the answer is no we dont have elections. - snakyman
-snaky saying that so he wont get overthrown. - Darkerfly snakyman would like it to be known that mcos/newports perms structure does not allow for overthrowing the owner.
-overthrown not necessarily means losing the perm, it can mean losing respect as mayor.
-Feel free to disrespect me lol - snakyman
