[Server idea] Ultimate MineCity

by webdesigner97 » Post

Hello @ all!
I've been thinking about launching my own minetest server for quite a while now. But some days ago I had the ultimate idea for it:

I could start a server, where we develope a giant city with skyscrapers, malls, subways, railways, mines, streets etc.
This would join the best of 20 small cities in 1 giant city.

What do you think? I already found a hoster, but I want to make sure tat there are also people who play on it.

Well, I already found some players who like this idea, so I think it could have a good start...

Well, to be honest: I prefer having my own one cause then I'm the one who administrates it. So I have the full control about everything... :)

i realy don't mind but if we did use my server you would have all privs 1 because it makes it easier for building and 2 because you half came up with the idea but i don't mind :-)

Well, ok. Now I'm curious. How powerful ist your server? Can it be 24/7? Where is it located?

Cool. Nice idea. But what happens after the city is built? It's a limited area so there is nowhere to explore.

It's a good idea for a building project. However, we're not exactly short of servers...there are many out there with more than enough free space for such a project. Building on an established server may help to keep the city accessible longer and to attract more players who may participate.
A list of my mods can be found here.

Yep. I'm thinking about this limited area thing for 1/2 hour now. Maybe it's not a good idea to limit the space. We also need resources, and the ones in the limited area will be consumed more or less fast.

That's also correct. But this project needs some cpu-eating mods like Mesecons and pipeworks. I don't think any server admin will install these (and some other) mods for just one project...

But do you think it can handle these "big" mods? And if it's a "private" server, I can't be sure about how long it will be online...

That's why I prefer a server by a real professional hoster ;)

This sounds a bit like my server idea :D
But my one will be even more modern (see the mod list I'll put online in 1-2 hours) ;)

Hi! I would love to help you build but I am quite busy and I might only get on 2-3 times a week ?
I have lots of ideas so hopefully I could help :)
Would this be a creative server as getting all the material would be quite hard in normal mode.
Good luck with your server !

Although I prefer non-creative mode, I could think about it. But give me some more days for the server to come up :)

If creative mode is ok, VanessaEs server comes to mind. That has cutting-edge-mods of almost every type installed. Compared to other servers, it does not even seem particulary slow to me even though it's physically far away.

Great to hear! But I need some more time for it because some mods still need to be configured/created ;)
