    upload_2020-3-31_22-39-40.png Hello Everyone! For a few months now I have been working on building my hometown zoo, the Detroit Zoo in Minecraft. The zoo is is about 35-45% complete and will hopefully be done by late 2020 or early 2021.

    This world is modded in order to make it seem like you are actually at the zoo. I decided to put the zoo on the web for others to download on March 27th, but it wasn’t accepted until the next day. The zoo is only available to Minecraft bedrock players. I want to give it to Java players also, but due to different mods I am unable to do it.

    Here are some links for you to check out. I hope enjoy!

    I would really appreciate any feedback

    Me too! Last time I attempted making the zoo everything went terrible, so I hope it works out better this time.

    I have also started working on the Ford Education Center

    I also found out I need to redo the train tracks because if not, it will go right through the building.

    Thank you so much! You should definitely do this also. It’s kinda hard, but it’s super fun to try.

    I don't currently have the game downloaded but when I do it, I want to download a mod with species of around the world to complete my zoo.

    Update:

    The exterior of the Ford Education Center is 100% finished. The interior is a little less than half complete. Here are some pictures:

    Also, since buildings are a little frustrating to me, I'm skipping Buddy's Pizza for now and have started the South American part of the American Grasslands: 2020-04-24 (2).png

    It's starting to look great! Just wondering, are you PC or PE, and are you using ZAWAM if on PC

    I’m on bedrock which is Pe, but I use Windows 10. I wish I was able to use ZAWA because it looks better than the animal mods for bedrock.

    I have made a few videos touring some of the exhibits in the zoo with facts about the animals and the exhibit. I will eventually tour all of them once they are complete. If you want to check them out here they are:

    It's taking a while, but the Great Apes of Harambee is starting to take shape. This is probably the hardest exhibit to build so far (I don't know why, but it is). I had to change the path many times because the habitats were getting too close to the paths, but I think I have found the best way to fit it in. I now have the outline for the habitats and the house. The back of the chimpanzee exhibit had to be changed, but everything else is the same. Here is what it looks like: 2020-05-11 (2).png Ignore all of the lines, those are just measurements.
