I had some dirt I need to get rid of, and I also felt sort of bad for not helping on any community projects yet, so I started terraforming the section of desert south of bobsky's giant pit thing. I'm working from the river in, because that's where the only bits of green were. If anyone wants me to leave part of that section desert (say, for a giant cactuar statue), lemme know or lay down a claim or something — I won't terraform any claim areas, of course.

and i guess i've known it all along / the truth is, you have to be soft to be strong

We should keep something as desert for a Jumbo Cactuar, but that's ultimately up to Brad.

Oh yeah!!!!

Speaking of terraforming - I'd like to keep much of the desert in Adventureland as an actual DESERT, with un-lit spots where there are no settlements. We could build a stone "undercarriage" to reduce creeper damage and sinkholes from belowground excavations.... on top of it there'd be sand piles and it could look natural. blah blah blah, you know what I mean

I think the Adventureland desert will remain desert. I'm not that ambitious or gaudy.




I may be a monster in my own right wrt how I terraform, but I've put that on the back-burner until CACTUAR STATUE*.


* which I would love to be a part of, but so it goes - too many cooks in the kitchen and all that.

So it goes.

I don't know where this "Adventureland" is. Circle it on a map maybe?

It's not near town, right? I've only been working on areas near town. So, no worries?

•••

I lit up a bunch of the desert and I've marked three prospective locations for the lighthouse with GIANT ROMAN NUMERALS. I and II would be on the coast up past Slanthaus, while III would replace my ugly house in the "residential" area of town, where we all started. (I don't want to put it on the northern coast, because I'd rather not have to see that mob trap thing.) I want to take a look at them on the map before I decide, to see how they might line up with roads and such, but as of now I really don't care between I and II, so if someone absolutely wants a specific section of that coast, lemme know in the next day or so.

If it's a "commercial" structure, then go for it. Bars, hotels, P.O., Money Bins (), etc. We need those downtown, for sure.

I filled in the creeper holes, and next Creative Day will likely expand on the terraforming sand into grass. I'd like to do your section next, and maybe up to the foot of jack's mountain.
I am not entirely sure yet, but would happily give it up for something better. I had plans in mind, but every time I attempted to do precision work with my tools it would overshoot
I will be working for a good chunk of the next couple of weeks. If anyone wants my claim, they are welcome to it. I like the idea of a residence in town, and will more than likely be going for that next, anyway.

You shouldn't be afraid of ADVENTURELAND, just because you're supposed to SCREAM its name.

The hang drop has been fixed, btw, so getting out of the death pit is a lot easier if you overshoot the ledge above the poison spider ramp. The flower farm is finally (nearly) fully automated, so we FINALLY have a source for roses (WHEW!!). Not sure what Mike is doing with the zombeh-pult but I'm hoping to see those jokers sailing over Pussy Beach by Saturday!!!

Um. So... remember that if we ever get a trap up and running that any permadark spawnable areas are just going to decrease the efficiency of the trap...

I marked off an area I think would be good for the Cactuar Statue — it's relatively flat, not yet terraformed, fits nicely with roads, and is close to the core of town (i.e., the exchange). It's south of Bruce's big project. It's 22*22, or 22*18 if we want roads on all sides. I marked it with gravel and a dirt "CS?"

Of course, I'm not building the thing, so y'all can put it wherever you want. I just thought it would be a good spot. The space between Ely's and the Art Center might also be a good fit, since that's also close to the center of town, and we know that Ely's Desert Palace will remain...desert.

Speaking of the exchange, there are now six stacks each of green and lime wool there, for the statue.

BTW, Stronghold found. It's in the train tunnel to the Far East. x=866, y= 50, z= 162. There is a hatch that leads to a ladder down from the train tracks. Also signs to help you see it and head down. Have fun!

Steve, it isn't fixed. And no, I did NOT change it. Suppose someone else may have, though.

Hey Foj - after our discussion tonight about skywalks I realized that a portal may suit you better. Not that I don't love skywalks (as BP will attest) but if you want a quick and easy way to get to town a portal may be even better.

I've been gone for the last few days, so I'm just now checking out the new stuff. Lighthouse is WIN, and while I'm still mildly undecided about the Cactuar Bar (it's nice and all, but stretching over the river gave me a twitch), the kitchen is utterly fantastic. Well done to whoever created that.

So it goes.

I'm glad you like the lighthouse so far. Of course right now it's just a house. But it will get a light soon!

Once that's done, I already know what my next creative mode project is going to be. Hint:

The spirals are perfectly done. Impressive.

I have no idea what your next project could be (if it isn't Hogwarts).

It's not. Hogwarts isn't a creative mode project.

yeah Grey i had the same thought when building it over the river. Everyone else on at time didn't voice against it though so... could always be moved to a slightly larger plot of land though...

Maybe a flip. Put the Cactuar statue where the bar is and put the bar where the statue is. It'll likely project a little into the bay, but is likely better than spanning the river.
