We could do that if Smj and Fiah want it, although Oasis City is very far south.

I was going to have the Darvincia line be a ring line but ok then????
The line you've drawn there is nothing we have discussed, you said you'd begin construction on the modified red line, from that I can only assume you meant the red line I posted to approve of, which is exactly what I dug out to help. I don't get why you ask for approval if you then just make some completely different plans then. And if you look at your first plan, the purple line you drew there went through the exact same area I dug out and the building.
I can start construction on the modified red line and the orange line, as well as the purple line right away.

Anyway, I have shítloads of stone so I can fill it back in.
That would be a waste of time. If you don't think the line should be there just seal off the ending in Darvincia so the tunnel isn't visible. Filling it all in wouldn't make any more sense than filling in strip mines imo.

Tonight, I dug out the yellow area that I have outlined:
This way the SKA station is not displaced and my immense desire to not move my import/export building is satisfied.
EDIT: I have filled in what I circled in purple and dug out Green and Yellow. I'll sleep now.

Wtf. But ok, your stone, your time.

But - could you post your plans for what rail lines you're planning to make now? I have absolutely no idea what they are.

Alternative red line dug out in 1x2 tunnel from Novascotchara to here, segments have been dug out to 3x3 tunnel.

Blacraft General / Blacraft Server Upgrades and Donations
« on: 2014 05 16, 21:24:40 »
Some people have shown interest in donations, and I haven't forgotten about them. But it would be very tedious to set up, because some laws probably apply to it, and finding Danish laws for this specific situation isn't easy. I've found out that some lawyers offer help for free in various places at various times, but only if you meet up, so I should probably ask them some day when I have time.

This is my plan for the principles that the donations would have to run on:

- Donations should be entirely voluntary and not grant any benefits to the individual who donates. Anyone who donates can still be banned the next day if they break the rules badly.
- 100% of donations will go into covering future server costs and/or upgrading it. No donations will be spent on anything other than Blacraft.
- If donations happen, publicly available information will list all donations, the people who donated (although being listed as anonymous would be an option), and the server expenses.
- Discussions and polls on the forum will be the basis for determining how the donations should be spent, but Bla will have the final say, as long as they're spent on Blacraft.
- No-one has the right to a refund (unless there's a way to set that up).
- In case Bla cannot run Blacraft, excess donations should be spent on 'temporary' worlds etc. possibly administered by others from the community who have time, or if possible and desired, be refunded to the donors instead.

I might, with my current economic situation, consider the current monthly cost a base that I pay each month, and then let donations fund any expenses above that. But upgrading after one small donation probably wouldn't be a good idea, because if nobody donates afterwards, one month later I'll stand with a higher expense and probably be forced to downgrade again. An accumulation process would probably have to take place so we don't have to do tedious upgrade/downgrade processes for single months, for example by deciding a community goal like one-year upgrade to 2 GB RAM after hitting x money and then do the upgrade when the goal is reached.

Thanks to people who showed interest in donating, though. With that said I personally find the hardware ok to satisfy the needs atm, but not everyone agree here I know.

I suggest including this bit of land to the south so that the borders follow the terrain more naturally, ok?

Also to avoid confusion, I'll remove the poll, as only posted votes count, because usernames can't be verified otherwise. If you're ready to open the poll for a defined region, post that people can vote for or against it.

It is far away but I'll vote for it, assuming we can draw more natural borders later.

I don't really understand the purple lines, which segments are alternatives to which other segments.

If you want your own line from Spawntown to Darvincia, that can be planned. Such a line would be more free in where to go than redirecting the red line, but a general southwest direction without too many slowing bends would be desireable so that it's useful for future developments in the southwest direction.

The thick purple is an additional line that could be a segment of a ring line, according to the web plan. If you prefer this plan, I can approve that (thick lines) alternatively to the above plan.

I think option 2 is a too big redirect for passengers going towards Kaeshar and Amazonis. Instead, the orange line can go to Swamphold and later in that direction if Jorster needs it, and a ring line could connect Jorster's area to Darvincia and Auspikitan later. Jungelot rails should be along x = -800.

I can approve this (red and orange thick lines), and you can begin construction if you want, as long as the rails obey the rules (foot height y = 49 on floor, centered on coordinate multiples on 20):

The rules don't mention it. Do you think it should be allowed or not?

I think it's a cheap move that I'd discourage but I don't really see a way to define when it's not allowed and when it's legit use of tnt. Maybe a rule about keeping tnt away from the flagpole.

Land Division / Land Division Information
« on: 2014 05 04, 12:40:08 »
Land Divison Processes

All regions and states are entitled to have one thread on this board. Municipalities (and zones) are discussed within the region's thread.

New Regions:
1: Post a thread stating the name of the region, a picture showing the borders you would like to request, and which users are in the regional government (if there is any). If it's a special region (like PvP area), write the special rules and mechanics that should apply.
2: This step is optional, but strongly recommended. Discuss the borders of the region with other members and maybe change the region's borders to avoid disputes and respect other players.
3: When you think your request is ready to be considered, add [Voting] to the title of your topic and make a post asking people to vote for or against the creation of the region.
4: People post their votes in the thread. The regional government cannot vote. After 7 days, if at least 70% voted for the creation of your region, the region is considered established, and [Voting] should be removed from the title.
5: If the request wasn't approved by at least 70%, go back to step 2.

To get more people to approve your regional request, consider posting your plans for the region and why you think it should be created.

Regions which do not contain rare biomes should as a guideline be 100,000 to 400,000 square meters in size (equivalent to squares with side lengths of 316m to 632m respectively).

Changes to Regions:
Post your proposal for changes in the thread of your region.
- If you wish to remove land from the region, you do not need to run a poll.
- If you wish to give land to another region, that region's government must state their approval.
- If you wish to gain land from another region, that region's government must state their approval.
- If you wish to claim more empty land for the region, this change is done in the same way as creating a new region (see above), but within the region's thread.

Municipalities can be freely created and modified within regions by the regional government. This is done by posting pictures of the desired municipality borders and names in the thread of the region they're a part of. If no request thread was made, make a new thread for discussing the region. All members of the regional government must post their support of the municipality division in the thread before they can be considered official.

Make a thread with the name of the state. In the thread, describe which regions should be a part of the state. The regional government of all member states must state their approval of being a member.
Consider posting details on the state's structure (how it's ruled, its economy, etc.) in the thread.

Regional governments can post in the thread of the state to leave the state at any time, and post requests to join the state after it was created, in which case the state's government must approve it (whether that happens by polls, etc. is up to the state's rules or government).

If you're making a PvP region, you can include zones in the plan. They're supposed to be even smaller than municipalities and areas that teams or players can take control of or be the site of battles.

Land Division Types on Blacraft

This is how the land divisions are organized:
States (white on the world map) can contain regions (or a single region) and are the largest divisions. States will usually have their own, isolated economy and trade with each other. Examples are the Union of Blacraft Socialist States (many regions) and Socialist State of Spheron (one region - Spheron Rilmu).

Regions (yellow on the world map) can contain municipalities. Regions usually have local governments which give permissions to build and do other things in the region, either a group or a single person. In the UBSR, regions can have their own collective storages which store excess public property, which are managed by regional governments.

Municipalities (red on the world map) are the smallest normal divisions. They're used to name areas, like Spawntown in Kaktoland. Some municipalities may be managed by people below a regional government, like Plaidania, which used to be managed by Darvince, in the region Yukiland, which is managed by Ventus.

Zones (orange) are territories inside The Battleground which battleground teams can claim and fight for. Each zone has a flag showing what team controls it, and during wars, the attacker must replace the defender's flag to claim the territory. Battles must be arranged - people are not allowed to interfere with other teams' zones outside arranged battles.

« on: 2014 05 03, 18:01:10 »
I'd be fine with that proposal personally, I'd like to hear what others say. I'll probably set up a poll for whether we should allow claims of the mesa biome first.

I think the islands in the east of that claim look a bit out of place for that region, they seem to more naturally belong to the land south of it, but I don't care much about them personally and wouldn't have a problem with them being claimed.

Land Division / Re: Dingusland
« on: 2014 05 03, 17:40:16 »
I have replied to your sarcasm in my post above.

I don't intend it to be a final decision, but I've mentioned that I have plans for the area and that I think its position makes it worth keeping open to more people. I'd like to hear what other people think and if we should at all begin letting people claim mesa regions yet. All I was saying that I was personally fine with you claiming the area that I marked as green and besides from that I have not decided anything.

Land Division / Re: Dingusland
« on: 2014 05 03, 17:26:27 »
You could, but I don't see why you should claim that desert. There are so many other deserts and then we'll need your permission to build anything going through that land bottleneck region connecting us to anything east of it. I think we should keep it opened up to more people atm.

Anyway, other admins may possibly want to build in that mesa or that plains biome some time in the distant future, so how about this?
If you want less area for your region I'd be fine with that too.

<Darvince>bla|craft, people may possibly want to build on the surface or mine on the surface in that region, so instead I will drop the claim for dingusland.
<Darvince>I will also dismantle Darvincia in case someone wants to build in that area that isn't me

I told you my opinion and asked if you were ok with my proposal. If you want to dismantle Darvincia etc. over that, go ahead.

Land Division / Re: Dingusland
« on: 2014 05 03, 17:11:57 »
Personally I'd be fine with you claiming this green area to begin with, if other people approve. I plan to eventually build a road past the mesas through possibly the desert.

Maybe you could just both own the swamp so you can both build in it? If Yqt just wants to finish a building, you could probably just negotiate it with Jorster and then he could be the 'main' manager there, building without the need to ask Yqt unless modifying Yqt's developments. That would just be my idea. More cooperative areas might be fun and then you both still have plenty of area where you can build without interference.

I'm fine with a region there so the negotiation should be between Yqt and Jorster.

Sadly there's no way to distribute the server over the entire world.

How should that work in practice? Given that having it manually update makes it pretty much unplayable for usually more than an hour. How often and what time of the day should this be?

I like the way Dynmap works atm myself.

one at regular level y=65 and the other at ice roads level y=110

I might be able to set 2 up, but why?

Blacraft General / Re: Nether Ice Roads
« on: 2014 04 15, 16:10:45 »
The poll has ended, with 3 voting for and 0 against the ice roads at y = 110.

I have moved Spawntown's portal so it's now in the top of the mining central, and links to a portal at y = 110 at origin. I have connected the ice road you built up there (Fiah).

I have also moved Kaktolake's portal 10 meters up so it's closer to the horse roads.

I recommend people who want their portals linked to the ice roads to move their portals up there. You can tell me if you want any help. Portals interfering will probably be an issue when trying to move them, to avoid that, it might help to move your portal up higher in the overworld, at least temporarily until more portals have been moved to the higher altitude in the nether.

The Battleground / Re: Battleground Information
« on: 2014 04 14, 20:48:47 »
<BlaBla44>A piston mechanism that interacts with the flag sounds pretty messy so I'd say keep it out of the battles. "Building at or above the height of the bottom block of the flag on a zone is not allowed by either team during or before a battle." and "The flag should not be surrounded by blocks such that it isn't visible from most of the surface."

The current rules don't really forbid them I guess, depending on how you make them.

Battle 10: The Blue Front (Lotzubutt, Darvince and Fiahstorm) attacked Zone 21, defended by Red Front (Blanoxium, Mudkipz and Ventus). Red Front successfully defended the zone.

Blacraft General / Re: Kaktolake Monster Factory
« on: 2014 04 13, 15:01:38 »
I think I got an idea that might work better. Replace the dispensers with pistons and a water source block. The pistons won't get out of sync like the dispensers, but they take more space. But I think there should be enough space.

Blacraft General / Re: Kaktolake Monster Factory
« on: 2014 04 11, 21:11:47 »
If I'm changing how far away chunks are loaded around players I'm just moving the problem into another zone, that wouldn't be a good solution to the problem. Increasing it increases lag, reducing it reduces how far we can see, we don't really want either, even though ofc it's possible that 10 isn't the ideal setting. Considering it affects the game constantly for everyone I also think that's a bit invasive in order to fix one factory.

Tl;dr I don't think changing the view distance would be a good solution, but thanks for the idea.

Blacraft General / Re: Kaktolake Monster Factory
« on: 2014 04 11, 13:53:03 »
There are some serious problems with the factory that I've found while working on the intro center, which means the factory probably on the edge of where the chunks are loaded around me. The dispensers tend to get out of sync, because every redstone signal just swaps the water flow on or off.

So far I found a rather easy solution, I set up a ladder to the lowest redstone level and if you destroy the redstone and place it again, it swaps the state of all dispensers after that redstone. But now I've seen that it also gets out of sync vertically, so even if the bottom floor is synced, the top floors probably aren't. This is getting a pain to maintain.

The solution would probably have to be a centralized water flow, like in the Border Hill farms, so just one redstone pulse pours water into a network that makes it fill all the floors. I should consider if such a design could be made. I think the factory is starting to get a bit unproductive in its current state.

Other ideas are welcome.

Blacraft General / Re: Nether Ice Roads
« on: 2014 04 11, 13:11:47 »
Ok, Kip, Fiah, Yqt (or anyone else), can we agree to move the ice roads to y = 110 (foot level)?

Blacraft General / Re: Nether Ice Roads
« on: 2014 04 11, 00:59:54 »
So the poll ended and we voted for moving the ice roads.

I'm suggesting to move them to the top near the horse roads, since the horse roads are at 105 and the tunnels are 3m tall, I'd suggest 110. The altitude below the horse tunnels seem to have a rapid drop towards more openness, so I think building them just below the horse roads would leave them too exposed.

Another option is near the absolute bottom of the nether, below around y = 18.

Consider this graph:

Blacraft General / Re: Recruiting More Members
« on: 2014 04 09, 01:51:42 »
That sounds like another good idea, I could make a Reddit account for it.

Anyway, the intro center is now in a state where I'd say all we need to get finished is the intro book before it can be used. However, the ground level floor is empty and the floor just below also is, it'd be nice if we could put something into them, so ideas are very welcome. We can always decorate them with random pots and maybe even a random grassy area with small flowers surrounded by some building material in the floor below. Carpets are another thing I might add to some areas of the floors, the top floors could probably use a few of those too.
It also has a rail station now along line 1 and 2. I hope to add the rail lines to Dynmap as well, maybe tomorrow.

Another thing that'd be nice before we start recruiting is to get the borders on Dynmap. If you don't have time to make a script for that I could also just sketch something very rough that outlines all our regions on Dynmap, with a blue border maybe, and then put a sign saying players can freely settle outside that border.

Here are screenshots from the intro center's unused floors:
