Skyscraper City is a town founded and owned by diemundz, located at B21 on the MRT Blue Line. The town's main attraction is its large skyscraper which contains many civic facilities as well as restaurants and apartments.

The town is currently the headquarters of NORI Interurban, CreeperCola, and NORImark Motors.


Skyscraper City in August 2013

Skyscraper City was founded in July 2013, shortly after diemundz became a member and stopped working on the SET Systems in order to build his own town. When diemundz was a guest, he wanted to find a place to "stay", but was unable to find one until he got his membership application accepted. Thus, diemundz founded Skyscraper City by building a tower that was focused on creating temporary homes for guests until they created their own towns as a member. The Skyscraper City Tower, which the town was named after, was originally constructed to be a city fully inside a skyscraper.

Skyscraper City has roads designed mainly for pedestrian travel as no large roadways and highways served the area until the Skyscraper-Arden Road and I-1 were built after the initial construction of the town.


Skyscraper City is located in the eastern half of the MRT Blue Line, sharing a station with Arden, located in the southeastern New World. Skyscraper City is located in a snowy plains biome.

Adjacent towns to Skyscraper City include Pecos to the north, Shadow Rock to the east, Arden to the south, and Wishington to the west.

The Skyscraper City Tower is the tallest building in Skyscraper City and was originally constructed to be a city inside a skyscraper. The tower include a food court with restaurants, the City Hall, a movie theater, a library, and a public park. The upper floors include five apartments and 20 pre-furnished hotel rooms for guests.

The franchises in the tower are CreeperCola, Enjineer's Pies, TheSpoon, and Taco Hell.

Skyscraper City hotels

The tower includes 20 hotel rooms. Each room's furniture are not allowed modified by members in order to maintain a level of similarity between all hotel rooms. All rooms are decorated with two beds, chests, ender chests, furnaces, anvils, crafting tables, tables, chairs, and a computer.

All hotel rooms are equipped with a light above the door. When the light is off, the room is considered occupied, and when the light is on, the room is considered vacant. Hotel rooms can be occupied by anyone for free, as long as the light above the door is on and the door is open. Room occupation priority is given to Guests, but Members are allowed to occupy rooms as well.

An additional customizable apartment building, the Skyscraper City Apartments 2, is adjacent to the tower.

Skyscraper City Apartments

The Skyscraper City Tower contains five apartments, with four rentable apartments. All rentable apartments contain the same amenities as the hotel rooms, but have permanently locked doors and pictures on the walls. Apartments can be claimed on a first-come, first served basis by any member or guest.

diemundz has a special penthouse apartment on the top floor as he built the tower. diemundz's apartment includes a private rooftop gardens.
