Map Info

Bessemer City is a realistic city project started in January 2017 by kubikk877. The city started off as a small roleplay map with just a couple buildings and an inn. As more people joined to help out, the city quickly began to grow and by December that year, the small buildings and houses were replaced by towering skyscrapers. Within a year, it became one of the biggest cities on the Brawl Build server. In late 2020, the Bessemer City map and team left the Brawl Build server, and now is operating on a private server.

The city boasts a large downtown area, a developing metro, a vast network of bike and public transport lines, and even a sewer system. There are also two major highways running through the map, I-67 and I-467, the latter cutting directly through the downtown area. Most of the buildings are inspired from real-life buildings, such as the PNC Tower from Louisville and the US Bank Building from Denver in the United States.

The city project has led to the creation of another district of the city, Saluda, which began in January 2020. Saluda is a suburban commercial town north of Bessemer City’s position, and is also where the various sports stadiums, hotels, restaurants, stores, and the massive Hiwassee University are all located.

After a brief hiatus following the release of V2.0 in March 2021, work quickly resumed on the city, focusing its efforts on drastically improving realism throughout the map. New features such as rolling hills, dense forests, and twisting and turning roads have been added in the northern part of the map. Further south, the river has been upgraded and expanded, as well as the streets and roads of the city. Another major goal has been to improve the look and feel of the downtown at its street level, and this has been achieved through 23 new and improved buildings, countless new custom trees, bike and bus lanes, and even a huge new city park.
