Groothuize-Gwent is a city north-west of spawn founded by the players mhoving and Isakmar88 (now Simonator28). The city is named after mhoving's palace and Isakmar88's city in the old world. GG has a northern and southern part, currently known as 'the storage area' and 'the spruce island'. The storage area is controlled and maintained by Cosaertje, who is also working on villager quarters. The spruce island is controlled and maintained by mhoving and Simonator28. The main style of the city is gothic. GG was planned on being abandoned and actually was so for about a week, however it experienced a real revival near the end of may.

The storage area currently has a storage, sheep pens and several farms in the northern part, as well as skeleton spawner. There's also a tower modelled after the ones in Gwent by Simonator28 and an abandoned building north-west of the spruce island. Cosaertje also lives here in his Hobbit hole. He's also the grand chicken of GG and enslaver of the primordial villager Frank.

The spruce island has a large 188 block tall gothic tower (Willibrord Tower), a 170 block tall Hollandic classicist tower (Tower of Bones), a monastery, a timber-frame house by Simonator28, a beetroot hall, a 144 block tall northern city gate, an unfinished cathedral works building and perhaps most notably red clay roads. Besides the timber-frame house all buildings are built by mhoving.
 
 
Both areas are connected by a bridge built by Simonator28
 
 
'''What's currently being planned and worked on:'''
 
 
Mhoving is working on a future plans for the city. His work on on Groothuize-Gwent will resume in early August. the west-side of the market or a big change tot turn the city more new player friendly are currently being considered.
 
 
Simonator28 is working on a city hall, which will be in a style that combines his own with mhoving's gothic architecture. It will be huge and located next to the terrace south of the northern gate.
 
 
Cosaertje is working on villager housing near Isak's tower in the storage area and just north-west of the city centre.
 
 
Debiile will fill the remainder of the block north of GG's great market (the square north of the tower).
 
 
Mr_Intuitive is going to build a house on a small mountain just north-west of the spruce island.

Warning: I'm going to change this page quite often the next week or so, this is because an update is needed. The former page was almost a year old.

History Edit

The city was founded by Isakmar88, now called Simonator28, and mhoving on march 3rd 2016. It is named after their domains in Freebuilders 1.0, the medieval-fantasy city Gwent and Groothuize palace. During the last days of the old map mhoving and Isak decided they would live together in the new map. They settled in an extreme hills biome which is currently north of the city centre. The origin of GG is therefore not the city centre, but rather its storage. Very early it was decided the spruce forest island, which was relatively flat and encircled by a river, was to become the city centre.

After that begins a long period of cycles of abandonment and changing plans. Simonator28 left the project eventually and while mhoving wanted to drop GG several times, he did keep developing the city. After Simon left the city has, somewhat ironcally, known almost continueous development. In the Summer of 2017 GG started changing rapidly. Fictitious_Rotor became the second king and GG started its transformation to a more welcoming city.
