[Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

Over in the Minecraft thread the other day, I discussed bringing back an old build of mine that died with the first server. (If you're already a member of the server, you likely already know why you're here.) This restoration of Kurast (New Kurast, in the marsh-nation of Travincal I played too much Diablo II) is driven by the server users and construction managed by me, since... I'm the one with the blueprints. *shifty eyes*

(You will also need to peruse  Chu... to know more details. emot-keke)

Anyway! This thread is where we'll discuss which way we build, what-all we're building and who agrees with anybody. When a structure is proposed (by anybody), we'll put it to a vote here. When we vote on what we build, I'll announce the beginning and ending of the tribute phase, the actual in-game construction and the in-universe waiting period that kicks in before we can say a structure's official. New rule: when you see the sea lanterns below the waterline of a structure, or the lamp post on a pathway, it's considered finished even if I don't announce it here.

Please note the Grand Hall is pre-constructed, as is the Village Standard. The doc doesn't say that, but for now it's erroneous in Kurast's specific case. When we construct the Village Standard, we'll unlock the Council of Nations position for Travincal, and I will begin participating as much as I can reasonably do so. emot-keke That said, if 80% or more of the Grand Hall is missing, I'll cut it from the Transfer Chamber's grid and refuse to restore access until it's been restored (which is where that tribute comes into play).

Building Restrictions

I haven't figured out an easy way to express what I mean by the "no buildings touching" rule, so I'll use ASCII code to show it off. Here we go:


Code:

Buildings can't be built touching sides or corners. This is an example of a legal build.
O-OO---OO
--OO-O-OO
---------
OO-OO-O--
OO-------

This is an example of a few illegal builds.
-OOO---OO
--OO--OOO
--------O
OO-OO----
OO---O---

Now, anybody who's registered to the Sunlit Garden server of Aine Silveria's has a vote (except me), but only those server users who're in Survival Mode can offer construction tribute. Every time somebody puts forward a motion to build something, we'll take a few days to decide it by majority vote, else immediately if unanimous vote. Tribute phase begins when the vote closes, and ends when I have the materials I need as listed in the Drive doc. Construction begins immediately after, and then the server time kicks in. Buildings become functional at the next dawn after the timeframe elapses, and time only stops when the server has experienced a major hiccup.

That said, before anything else, we need to decide the first pathways! And you have four varieties: T-cross, full cross, L-bend and straightaway. I'll let all y'alls decide what we're putting in, and where. It'll go on the map of the "Build Grid" below, in the second post.

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

This is the Build Grid. I'll update it as things are placed in!

Code:

....................
....................
....................
....................
.........xx┴x.......
.........xx.........
....................
....................
....................
....................

x = structure
+ = full cross way
─ │ = straightaway
├ ┤ ┬ ┴ = T-cross way
┌ ┐ └ ┘ = L-bend way

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

Okay!!  I took a look around the Grand Hall last night.  The warp point brings you in on the edge of the south side of the Grand Hall.  Eventually, we'll want something behind you to the south so that your back isn't to blank ocean, but for now maybe we can give the visitor more to look at, from the warp point, by expanding east or west.  A reasonable thing to put in either of those directions, right next to the Hall, would be housing.

I suggest a T-cross emanating from the east side of the northeast corner of the Grand Hall, with other paths extending east and north.

Code:

....................
....................
....................
....................
.........xx┴........
.........xx.........
....................
....................
....................
....................

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

Ask and ye shall receive, my good sir. emot-dance

...except for replies. emot-tongue

Anyway! Nobody's made motions to dispute the current construction proposal, and it's been a few days, so we're ready. Construction will begin once I have the necessary tribute for a Pathway. It will be completed when I pop the lighting in. emot-keke

Please direct all tribute to the Grand Hall. First door on your right when entering the building, first floor please! emot-keke

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

Materials dropped off!

Any objections if we build a Small Home next, to the east of the Pathway?

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

The first Pathway is completed. We can take requests for anything the users desire.

So we're considering a Small Home on the east end of the newly-completed Pathway? Sounds like a plan. Anybody say nay, or have other ideas? emot-keke

I'll go fix that as I make the other fixes.

EDIT: Fixed the mistake. Installed a basic compass rose as well. I could've sworn that was northeast. Um. Oops? >>;;;

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

Unsurprising, really. The server keeps failing to bind to the port, meaning I need to reboot it manually every morning. And keeps losing our server.properties settings to boot.

I'll discuss it with Aine the second I can. Tribute is waived for this Small Home when I can reasonably connect.

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

No need to waive tribute!  I have all this mossy cobble, and if I don't give it to you, who am I going to give it to? emot-smile  Just need to be able to teleport, is all.  Sorry to hear the server issues are worse than I thought. :-/

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

Tribute made!

How do you pronounce Travincal, anyway?  Does it sound like Davenport?  Or does it rhyme with twinkle?

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

Travincal (as in the Temple-City of Travincal, the area of Diablo II Act III before the Durance of Hate) is pronounced roughly "tra-vin-call," where the A in the first syllable is the same pronounciation as "at." It's fairly difficult to find the word itself pronounced at all in the game you rather need to spend a lot of time bugging the people at Kurast Docks and Deckard Cain himself at various points throughout Act III.

Kurast itself is, roughly, said as "kyoo-rawst." For reference, the word Zakarum (as in the actual faith of Kurast itself) is said as "zawk-aw-room."

...I was going to get fancy with Unicode, but decided in the end against it. Bio Phonetics are what y'alls get today. emot-keke

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

Since no one else has made a suggestion, I'll chip in again emot-smile  We still need more population before we can build other things, so I suggest expanding our house into a housing block via more pathways, continuing east of our existing house:

Re: [Minecraft] The Kurast Restoration

The pathway's proposal is finalized, although it will still be a while before I get around to it. I apologize Guild Wars 2 has been eating a lot of my time recently, so... emot-redface

That said, the rules are being rewritten slightly, and I'll rewrite the original post and the Drive doc to reflect this:

The second I say a structure's finished, it's finished. No exceptions, no wait times necessary. A structure is considered "finished" if you can see a ring of sea lanterns just below the waterline (or a sea lantern lamp-post for pathways). Also, users are free to move into Housing if there's room. Each Housing unit can accommodate a single user. Users aren't allowed to move into the Grand Hall or other structures which increase Population.
