New Chandigarh, originally founded as Harrington, is a Governor-ranked city founded and owned by Saltedline. Located in southwestern Epsilon around M43 station on the MRT Mesa Line, New Chandigarh is known for its high-density urban planning, grid-based road network, and its brutalist style Government Complex.



Overpass surrounding M43 station before New Chandigarh was developed

New Chandigarh was founded on August 19, 2021. Seeking for the MRT station with a premier-ranked city nearby, Saltedline claimed the M43 station and the land around it with the help of Missa_Solemnis. The city was initially named Harrington, after American political activist Michael Harrington. After demolishing highway overpass around the station built by an unknown inactive player, nothing was built near the station besides an underground enterance for the MRT Station and an unfinished brick plaza.

After the long break, Saltedline decided to finally start developing the city at June 20, 2022. The city was registered with the new name "New Chandigarh", since the name Harrington was already taken. Inspired by the city plan of Chandigarh, India by Le Corbusier, superblock-based urban planning in southern Seoul, and other grid-based highly developed cities in the MRT Server like Elecna Bay and Kolpino City, New Chandigarh adopted a 100 x 75 / 125 x 75 grid for its road network. Six grids of road were initially built, mostly by hand. Spegit007 was named as the deputy mayor after she helped Saltedline get the citizen rank.

Starting with the New Chandigarh City Hall and New Chandigarh Cultural Center at the Government Complex, high-rise office buildings and residential buildings sprung out quickly after getting basic information in worldedit and //stack. The city gained Councilor rank at June 30 2022, and Mayor rank at July 8 2022, both endorsed by DintyB and Mojang1014.

New Chandigarh Intercity Bus Station when it was built

Many buildings were built after gaining Mayor rank, including New Chandigarh Mall, an art gallery, a department store, and the MBS Southern Studio. After connecting the city to A6 with trumpet interchange built by AP_Red, New Chandigarh Intercity Bus Station was built to connect the city with other towns and cities. Road grid was expanded south in July-August 2022, and expanded north in November 2022. Commercial spaces around the city including New Chandigarh Mall and the bus bays at the New Chandigarh Intercity Bus Station were quickly filled up with franchises and bus routes by sending requests aggressively to other server members online using private chat.

Senator era

The quick development in New Chandigarh was in halt from September to early November, but the city managed to gain Senator rank via unanimous vote of 5-0. New Chandigarh City Museum, a spleef stadium, and MRT Labor Union Center were also built during this period of development.

After another break spanning December 2022 and early January 2023, New Chandigarh started to develop nine more roads grids for Goveornor rank. SL Holdings Headquarters, Michael Harrington School and New Chandigarh Catholic Church were among the newest addition to the city. Road network also expanded east, adding six additional blocks on the northeast and road circling the Government Complex. District system were also adapted during this period. Government Complex saw significant development with the addition of embassy building, Ministry of Intercity Affairs, two residential blocks for city officials, New Chandigarh City Monument Tower and New Chandigarh Ministry of Culture. Plan for New Chandigarh Metro system was completed, and is commissioned to worrski for construction.

Governor era

After New Chandigarh was promoted to Governor in March 14, 2023 with unanimous approval by staff, the city development was slowed down. Nevertheless, an IKEA store, several sculptures, and the Jeanneret Lake was completed with the help of several conductors and mods.

Geography and Transport


New Chandigarh was built around the station M43 of MRT Mesa Line, connecting the city with Southwest City, Heampstead, and Deadbush to East and Coruscant and Welchett to the West. The city was built at the relatively flat Desert biome directly west to Grand Mesa. Several small streams flow through the city area, including the Southern Stream in the Breuer district and the City Stream in the Doshi district. Lake Jeanneret, an artificial lake connected to Southern Stream, lies on the southeastern part of the city.

Design of New Chandigarh Intercity Bus Station, New Chandigarh City Museum, New Chandigarh Church and New Chandigarh City Court was also taken from works of Le Corbusier. New Chandigarh Mall follows the same design of typical commercial complexes in Sector 17, Chandigarh.

MRT Labor Union Confederation Headquarters, the first building on MRT dedicated to Labor Union, was largely inspired by brutalist design of Centre National de la Dance at Pantin, France by Jacques Kalicz.

City Hospital of New Chandigarh, Saltedline & Co. Building, and Daisy Estate was both inspired by architectural works of late US Architect Bertrand Goldberg, including now-demolished Prentice Women's Hospital, unbuilt ABC Headquarters at New York and Hilliard Towers at Chicago.

MBS Southern Studio and Office, inspired by design of Korean Broadcasting System Headquarters, and SL Department Store, taken from Sun Plaza Mall, both at Seoul, South Korea follows the design of late South Korean architect Kim Joong-up. Design of New Chandigarh City Monument Tower at the Government Complex was also taken from Kim's design of Memorial Tower for Cherishing the Souls of Patriots at Busan, South Korea.

Low-rise brick buildings at the northeast of Doshi district and the plaza around the builds were inspired by works of South Korean architect Kim Swoo-geun including Arko Museum, former Samteo headquarters, Catholic Hyehwa-dong Church, and former KIND headquarters.
