Some of you guys need to read the OP:
Coolity has over 700 posts so he'll be whitelisted when the admins get to it.
I'm building the second floor. Anyone wanna lend a hand?
Edit: Just finished the floor.
Edit 2: Someone brought back the fences.
For anyone still taking part, I finished the rail system on the second floor. My idea was for it to lead to an area where produce is made to be fed to the creatures in the Nature Dome, so if someone could spawn in a dome of medium-large size that'd be great.
You know me, Inacio.
I may pop on a bit later and help out, please whitelist me.
Hey, can I get a whitelist?
Does anybody know of any methods of making a Sapling producer, like a mob trap for trees? Part of the original idea of this was that it'd have tons of Redstone trickery, and I think putting something like that into a presentable casing would be a welcome challenge.
That's the only way I can think of doing it, but the trees would need to be replaced, and there'd have to be a lot of them all side by side for it to be worth it. Plus a fair number of the leaves would be pushed out as well, so it's not exactly what you'd call efficient. Unless the wooden blocks were pushed from above or below, in which case only one or two blocks of leaves would be lost. I dunno, I'm not that good with redstone.
I have no idea how we'd get the actual sapling from an idea like that, though.
Also, maybe there could be a redstone torch near the dirt block that would light up to indicate when it was okay to put the sapling down, and then turn off again to indicate that it was too late, or something? Not sure how easy that would be to do... It'd require one heck of a lot of redstone wiring, though.
The simplest is just having a clock feed a repeater pointing towards the sapling. When the tree grows, the pulse will be able to travel through the bottom-most log.
Another method that involves a clock but remains locked in the "on" position until the tree has been removed is a device I made called a "treelay".
You feed it with a clock signal, and the piston pushes a block back and forth behind the repeater facing away from the sapling. When the tree grows, a constant signal is transmitted through the log back into the piston circuit, locking it in place until it is removed.
Do you people intend on continuing this? I don't want to have darksoul wasting a server if it ain't gonna be used. :(
I guess you can tell him you close the server until we all agree on an idea. Maybe the underwater city isn't the right one.
I'd love to continue building but I'm afraid that there will be someone that doesn't like what I've built, so there is barely any progress now.
No one is even on the server anymore so there isn't really anyone to oppose it being closed until we all agree on something.
I'm building a museum now and the waffle over there is building a train station.
I'm usin' the server.
Pretty sure this is, like, the third time I've asked, but; can I get whitelisted? Please?
Sounds cool, please whitelist
I asked darksoul to get this closed so it doesn't waste his resources.
If at any point in time you feel like doing a collab - or even continuing this one - let us know and we can see.
But be organized, make some concepts and assign objectives.
If anyone wants the map for whatever reason: http://www.mediafire.com/?gi3ichpuaucdwzl
Probably the problem you guys are having is you're just saying "We need a theme" when what you really need is to thoroughly plan out building placement before you start building anything, and get some design rules set up in advance.
How about we build a space-ship?
Now, I've got an incredibly WIP design right here, so we can stick to that. For a general idea of scale, the Mining Deck should be about as big as the Poor District in our last build.
Now, I am aware that means the Crew Quarters would be pretty tiny, and I'll change it in a sec. But just for a basic idea, what do you guys think?
If we were ever to make a ship, I do believe we should do this:
I'd be down for this again if we did a spaceship. Would be fun to try making one.
Right, I figured we'll need to do this on the latest Snapshot, if you guys are okay with that. It's just that the newest Snapshot has upside-down stairs, and they'll be useful in making the main thrusters look as close to a circle as we can get.
Or we can use blocks. Whichever way you guys prefer.
Alright, revised design I just remembered to do.
Is this a good base to get a general idea of? Y/N?
If it's a side view then it's hard to say, why are there thrusters at the front?
It'd be cool to try and make a ship that isn't essentially a huge brick and has some interesting design to it. Would be more impressive that way, too.
No we're going to build a full scale Death Star.
I say, let's do this.
But we will need a map that is just air and void. Plus, the fog and void needs to be black.
I would recommend Voxelsniper as a plugin to asteroids and other space objects.
So what do we do server-wise? And should we spend more time on the designs, or have you guys got a good enough idea to be getting on with?
Alright, generally cool things people want to put into the build? We didn't manage to get that elevator working, that'd be useful in a gigantic space-ship. Any neat Redstone contraptions people want to build?
We should wait 'till the update tomorrow, methinks redstone lights will be amazing for the ship.
Could I be Whitelisted?
The entire problem with the last build was that we had no planning.
The server should be the very last thing we figure out.
