Space needle close to the lighthouse might make it really look small. That's my only input.

The vacation home will be tiered, correct? And 3 levels? I remember us chatting about it in-game, but maybe didn't retain the specifics.

I did a 'tard tower test, and location 1 would indeed be better. It has a good view of downtown plus the river town district and the lighthouse.

So it goes.

Couldn't sleep this morning, so I built a little jungle temple out here.



Be careful: it's not fully illuminated and can be quite dangerous at night.

Could I build something on Alley Way, where Tunnel Lane pops out? Right now there's just a bunch of sand, and small pool and an oasis-type thing.

This turned out better than I'd expected! The temple is dark by design; you must bring weapons and supplies if you plan to visit.

Ely's Desert Oasis is a desert preservation. He was the first to settle in the desert and claimed that neat overhang area. That said, it might be fine for you to build on the west side of Tunnel Lane across from his oasis. Were you planning to build on the north or south side of the tunnel? I think the whole north end, around the Mario Street intersection, is free for taking. We need northward expansion anyway, so that might work out nicely.

Actually the spot he picked out is to the north of my place and just east of Dellphi's. I assume the oasis he is talking about is the well there. So no objections from me on for that area.

It's really really cool Brad. Nicely done from tip to toe.

I guess the only thing we haven't discussed is whether to leave the natural wells. Since there's another one so close and its been enshrined in Brad's park I'd be OK with Kraetos removing the "oasis" one if he needed to.

So it goes.

I marked off the area I want to build in. I would probably replace the surrounding sand with grass and landscape it. It seems to be about the same size as other projects in town.

Kraetos, if you wish, you can build all the way next to my building. I was doing some terafroming just for fun. I have no plans for that grass area.

So, this a tad premature, but I'd like to claim this strip if nobody minds:



I'll just be building a path with lighting, basically. And some small stuff.

But I plan on asking for a certain thing (not my own) once it's in place.

So it goes.

Considering I've been missing for long stretches of time due to real life projects I figured I'd layout my project areas/claims outside of the oasis in town.

Wide angle shot of all three areas (click for bigger):



Area 1: Ely's winter home

Yes the whole damn island. This one has been well established for a while now. There are a number of caves that I torched below that extend into the SW corner of the box. Be careful mining in that direction as I haven't pulled the resources yet.

Area 2: Future site of the Rink of Pain

Yes, the Rink of Pain will make it's appearance in this area. The rink is marked by tard towers and the boundaries of the claim have been torched. They're quite extensive so be careful if you want to build out there.

Area 3: Sekrit Base

Super top secret base to be built on this island. The edges of the island have been marked with torches.

I pitched a claim down near Brad's Fort Knox. It's currently marked with gravel.

There's two little shacks near the plot. One (the Lumberjack Shack) is mine, but there's another with a little mine underneath that hasn't changed in ages. Does it's owner still have plans for it?

I can live if the claim is still current, but I'd love to extend to the water's edge there.

I think that one is mine. No plans for it. Was just a resource mine.

Aha! That was you.

13topia is going to be out in the water a little NW of there (look for the corner blip on the overhead map), so all I ask is that you don't build out into the water - at least not on the NW side.

So it goes.

No worries about that. Topside will likely have no immediately visible structures, but some creative terraforming. Pretty much all the work will be on the the southeast and east ends.

Any mining, if at all, will be confined to the island footprint.

709's, Ely's, and Bry's claims all look fine by me. Go build!

Meanwhile, I've started constructing a small chain of islands out here:



I've already connected to one island by way of a nether portal, but I would discourage visiting until construction is complete.

Done. Ta-da!



All appeared to work out perfectly except for the narrow stairwell inside the front wall. I tried to fix it, but you may want to take a look at that when you get a chance.

Since this has to do mostly with land claims I thought it best here.

In burrowing out the bottom level of the museum I find myself with 37 metric shit-tons of dirt on my hands - and a lot more to come. So, my first order of business when I get back in town later this week is to terraform Cactuar like a motherformer.

There are a handful of places that I know not to touch, like Ely's oasis, RS's hill & Cactuar park, but I just want to put this out here now in case anyone likes sand around their build (like I do around slanthaus).

Main areas that I think are safe are N of the park next to the Station all the way W to Dellphi, and the strip in front of Dellphi (which, honestly, I'd like to remove that path S of Alley Way that makes it a skinny rectangle).

Areas I'm not too sure about are the strip between Dellphi's and Brad's houses (the one going past SpecMode's) and the base of Jack's mountain.

Any qualms about me doing that? The overhead map is kind of bugging me.


So it goes.

Fine by me!

Do note, however, that the little farm and house immediately north of my old house belong to Kraetos, but he hasn't been online in a while and I'm sure he wouldn't mind.

I know I've not been able to get on much recently, but I do have plans for all of my area yet. I just need things to stop breaking.
