E is iffy because Tricia was plotting something out there and I don't know if she's started yet.
Ken will be glad to help reconstruct said pathways for new mining opportunities! Whether we replace the Nether or not, there will be opportunities to expand out there, again. A Nether Hub will be my first priority!

Well, there was a lot of work put into the Nether Hub, but I really don't mind doing it again. I had a lot of fun with that project and it taught me to be fearless in the Nether. I can hunt that place now with zero worries. I also have ideas to reduce the amount of material used while simultaneously increasing the width of the paths and the Grey-will-be-proud-sexyness of the Hub, itself.

A Nether rail system would be pretty cool, provided we can all settle upon a design that looks AWESOME without having to worry about stupid pig-dudes! The only trouble with rail is the inability to move diagonally, which reduces the efficiency of the hub while also being less fun/challenging to build.

Also, no /back or /repair makes Ken a very unhappy dude, but if that has to happen in order to charge into the future of Cashout Cove, then so be it.

What I want most is a new challenge that also preserves the work I have already done and the vast collection of useless crap I have accumulated!!!

Also, I'm sure I don't really need to say it, but PLEASE for the love of creepers give us ample time for one last Cashout Cove Cashout! I'll need crap-tons of materials for a new Nether Hub.

Edit: Question: Do pig-dudes spawn on rail, or just beside rail and then wander onto it? That will go a long way in determining a new Hub design.
