Three weeks later, I'm done!

To get there via the nether, there's a portal north of Dellphi's house's portal. Staring from the Community Exchange portal, exit the portal to the left, turn right at the split, and pass the portals for SpecMode and Dellphi. The next portal on the right for "Dinosaur Land" will take you to my new park.

Umm, whats the giant cube thingy in the desert just east of my place?
Looks like a cube outline made of bedrock and a quarry in the desert inside it

I plan on completing this path in the next couple of days - I really need to build something to break the monotony of digging. That said, the museum is nearly dug out; but it won't be floored until I can get the staircases done. Getting so close.

Brad - where were you thinking about putting your pieces? Do you want them in the snowy area or do you want to use that lighted strip directly E? If you want them in the snow I'll remove more of that area and light it.

[edit]: Here's an updated overhead, including the lighted area to the east.



[edit2]: Or hell, I only had plans for a park between the museum and the planetarium. Maybe you could put them in those two areas (leaving room for a few more ). That might be even more fun than having them off to the side:



I still have to terraform that lower part, but if you like that idea I'll make that a priority.

So it goes.

Does it have to be that large? It will basically take up half my view from my location.

You shouldn't be able to see it from your house, since I cannot see your house from it. I should mention the fact that I did consider the distance to other projects -- Grey's museum and your development when placing it...

You can make out the lower portions when using Optifine, but barely.

The only thing I will say about this is the distaste I have for creative and legit projects in the same area, especially if the legit projects were preexisting.

Hence, why I am building on islands or taking up huge remote land areas.

I'm OK with it. I happened to be on when bobsky was staking it out, and he moved it 3 chunks away from the museum from his initial plot just to be safe. It's not a skyranch thing... it's far enough away from anything to affect anyone - unless you have your view set to super-far, I guess.

Kind've knew that bobsky was the Borg Overlord, but this seals it.

So it goes.

Any ideas what's causing these linear features?




They seem to be a single line of sand removed in parallel lines - they extend through my Brysia village.

Here's what they look like in-game:


Weird, eh?

So since we're back to basics for the time being and everyone is scrambling for coal/charcoal I thought I may take a day or so to revisit my treefarm idea and build something similar as a community farm in the new world. For those that weren't in BP or don't remember, this was my much maligned by name treefarm in BP:





This topped out right at the height limit at the time (64), but I'll likely add 2 more levels since we have jungle wood now. 2 levels for Oak since it's the quickest and easiest for charcoal gathering (and they grow right next to each other in a row) then 2 levels each for the rest of the wood types (they all need a space between). The interior is hollow, so if someone is hot for jungle wood they could grow the 4x4s on the inside:





Not sure about where to put it though. It's tall, but not huge, and I don't want to put a big structure so close to/in sight of anyone that wouldn't want it there. I have a few areas in mind that will work, but I'd like input (areas are not in order of preference):





1) Off the coast of The Isle of Industry. Downside is that it's a trek from Spawn, and as of now only accessible by boat. Upside is it's out of sight for just about everyone.
2) The sand island a little further out of town. Same down/up as above, but it may push for expansion that way instead of into the jungle.
3) Somewhere in the forest behind Spawn. This would make it a part of the future expansion, and likely a part of the city. It's not ugly or anything (), but I'll only put it there if people are fine with having it a part of the inevitable urban sprawl.

This one will be made out of the wood types too, not stone. Not enough charcoal to do that.

So it goes.

All so far away! I'd choose #3 because it's closest to spawn. No sense in putting a farm so far out of reach that no one will use it.

I just wanted to be conscious of people's sight lines. Of course I'd love to put it close to spawn to kind've act as a useful thing plus a place to look from above (ala the Space Needle), but I just want to make sure peoples are OK with that.

So it goes.

Yep, I'm cool with it too. We're in the middle of a forest - it's not like most of us can even see the horizon from ground level, anyway.

Treefarm 2.0 is open for business!



2 levels of oak, 2 birch, 3 spruce (since spruce needed to be 2 blocks away from one another) and 4 2x2 dirt areas on the inside to plant giant jungle trees.

I ended up only adding 1 additional level from the original design and tweaked the width of the levels a bit. If we find that we need to add another oak level or something it's easy enough to do.

So it goes.

Not bad at all. I just leveled and replanted one floor of spruce, and that netted me 64+64+15 logs and 22 extra saplings.

Ooh! The map finally updated.

Looks like a color-segregated sheep farm. 16 bins? Eaten grass? Check and check.

edit: Looks like Dellphi is out there. Must be his!

LOLOLOL

Okay hey everybody, I have selected the little swampy island east of spawn (our future town). It looks like one of those hook echoes you see with tornadoes so I'm calling it Tornado Hooker Island.

Or something like that.


Time to poop.
