GameBoom's server is looking for city planners and veteran builders

by ghostshell » Post

As some of you know, our MT server has suffered a lot lately and has been crashing a lot. I really think it's due to the ancient map we are using -- and I think it's time to rebuild. But rebuild right.

For this new rebuilt server, I would like to create a "Spawn City" near 0,0,0, a static no-build town that has monuments, information, supplies, commerce and common areas. All of this has to fit in a sized grid and its construction will be public but limited.

Here is where you can help. We are looking for city planners to design this new SpawnCity and volunteers to help build it following the approved plan.

Initial specs (open to discussion):
- Build grid area: 2000x2000 (complete top and bottom)
- Minimum height of 3 blocks per floor. With proper, modern lighting (leave torches for caves)
- All stairs must be real stairs, not blocks.
- Buildings must have stone and/or metal foundations, doors and signs to indicate use.
- Roads and sidewalks, using dirt, sand and/or gravel, with intersections labelled with signs.
- You have the option to flatten the entire area or use the terrain as is.
- Default spawn (0,0,0) must be an info center or tourist center, with a large banner (2x6 to 3x8) with the world name (using paint mod)
- At least 2 common areas must be available: 1 marketplace/shopping and 1 townhall or convention center
- At least 1 supply depot or area with chests to help newbies with supplies, could be combined with info center.
- At least 2 parks, and 1 with a large monument. One of the parks must have a fountain (could be combined w monument).
- At least 2 boards for 2x6-3x8 announcements (using paint mod), building side walls are ok.
- The entire city must be enclosed with fences and/or walls, with 2 or more access gates. City enclosing can be circular or square.
- No underground access yet. Any quarrying must be done outside the city, do not hollow the underground.

You must post your plans on this thread drawn in image in top-down view. You must indicate where default spawn point will be, along with the other areas. If your design is selected, we will need individual buildings in side 3d views (front/sides/back), as many as needed to create your vision.

Mods available for design/build: bobblocks, coloredwood, creative, doors+, homedecor, lights, locked_sign, moreblocks, painting, stairs+, teleporter, unifiedbricks, unifieddyes, xfences.

The winning designer will get the monument of his choice (with credited sign) built at one of the parks to be displayed for the life of the world -- nothing distasteful nor taller than 2 tree's height. The designer and all build volunteers will get paid 2000c (game currency) and their names will be displayed near the default spawn. Also, they will have first-pick to own a 200x200 area of their choice in the world -- must be outside of the city though.

If you are interested you must post your design on this thread. Feel free to comment if you have questions too. The specs are not set in stone but are very close to. For ideas, search new city planning maps in google images.

The website is still down (drupal got hacked) but the minetest server is back online and upgraded to 0.4.4
