The goal of Project Eros is to have our own take on the famous Kowloon Walled City on MCO, so the builds in this project will be highly inspired in its general architecture and chaos.
Where it start
On 17th August 2020, 1Catnip started the conversation about building the famous Kowloon Walled City in MCO. Darkerfly, DarthSagit, Freskooo and more got involved.
< 1Catnip> Let's all make MCO Kowloon walled city in MCO < Aziroeth> YES < Drdrs> L < Darkerfly> that actually a good idea catnip < Freskooo> I'm in < DarthSagit> LOL < 1Catnip> Ahahah we'd all hate each other after like 3 days
After discussions, they concluded the high possibility of this project and establish some basic concepts of the city. Therefore, after 1Catnip's persuasion, Darkerfly opened the discord server for the project.
< 1Catnip> If we're serious about this I suggest someone make a discord to help plan things out < 1Catnip> I assume DF is gonna take the lead for this one < Darkerfly> smh me taking the lead? < Darkerfly> seriously < DarthSagit> lol Darkerfly's city < 1Catnip> Well df you seem to know what you're talking about < Darkerfly> ok then < Darkerfly> give me a sec
Shortly after the establishment of the discord server, the name for the project had also been decided - Eros, named after the child of the god Chaos in Greek mythology.
< 1Catnip> What if we do something like Gaea or Eros, they're children of a Greek god of chaos < Aziroeth> Broken paradise? < Mechman007> Yes catnip! < Freskooo> Project Eros sounds badass < Mechman007> Gaeros! < 1Catnip> Broken Paradise is cool, Eros is a cool project name < Aziroeth> Yeah, Eros is a cool name < 1Catnip> Well I'm afraid if we go gaeros we'll be called gayross xD < Aziroeth> Lmao < Mechman007> Tru. Eros it is!
Where to be
A few possible locations were suggested. Some discussions later, it was decided to be founded on a swamp that 2000 blocks out of Newport.
< Mechman007> So yeh... Location? What biome will help - a swamp? < Mechman007> Swamp grass is perfect colour and mostly flat < 1Catnip> Swamp would be good but dealing with lakes is an ass < Freskooo> placing dirt is fine < Freskooo> it's worse to have to flatten ... < r9q> (send an image of the swamp location) < mechman007> Perfect! < 1Catnip> LOL < 1Catnip> I literally just found that
Not long after, Darkerfly built a portal on site with the help by WaffleNomster for lighting the portal.
^The portal that generated in the swamp area after going through the portal in nether, linking up path to Newport.
On August 19, 2020. A soft line have been made to mark out the area where the city gonna be, also allowing people to fill in lakes with dirt.
^an outline for project Eros.
