    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.

    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.

    What about if it was similar to the piston elevator that got posted, only horizontal as opposed to vertical, with a dirt block with a sapling on it, and when the tree grows, the horizontal elevator thing is activated and all the wooden blocks are pushed away, leaving the leaves, which eventually decay, dropping down into some sort of delivery system like in mob traps..?

    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.

    Well, that's certainly better than anything I could come up with. I was considering a simple timer made out of four repeaters set up in such a way that, by the time it was finished and a pulse could be sent out, a tree would have grown.

    I have no idea how we'd get the actual sapling from an idea like that, though.

    Combining your idea with mine would make it so that no one has to watch for the tree and press the button, but they'd still need to plant a sapling at the right time.

    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.

    If you need a device that detects when a tree has grown, there's a few methods.
    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.

    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.


    Edited:

    I'm building a museum now and the waffle over there is building a train station.

    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.

    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.

    Okay guys...

    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?

    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.

    Edited:

    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.

    Well, in space there's no resistance to stop you from just drifting on forever, so you need thrusters in mutliple directions as well as a primary one to move you where you need to go. By the same coin, it doesn't need to be pointy at all because there's no air to cut through, so you may as well get in lots of room for crew and equipment.

    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?

    I may be able to help with the server situation,I rented one and so far it has attracted far less attention than I was expecting,so if you guys use it for a short bit it would be no problem to me.

    How long have you rented it out for? I want to plan ahead as much as possible, but if you've only got a few weeks or anything in that time range we really need to get a move on.

    A whole year? Well, we can take as long as we want then I guess.

    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 haven't got everything set up yet. I'd rather we plan ahead a bit this time, as that's what screwed up the Rapture build.

    Well Bukkit is being made into the official API, so it'll probably take much less time than it used to.

    We won't take long if we've got direction. Four months, at the absolute most; you get the other eight to yourself.

    Is everybody okay with this dealing?

    Four months is a long time,make a plan and figure out how long it should take you and we'll work from there.

    The entire problem with the last build was that we had no planning.
    The server should be the very last thing we figure out.
