Bleh! This is getting too silly and complicated.

No borders. Scrap the whole thing. We don't really have a troll problem and the few incidents we DO have get dealt with fairly quickly. Fact is, the border thing causes more problems than it solves.

NO BORDERS!

After playing on the server once, I can agree with both Met and Pat.

However, I do think we should keep the option to switch between Creative and Survival for everyone.

Hey, someone want to join the server or tell me how to start building things?  How do I join Acropolis or whatever?

So ruminating on the situation, two ideas have come forth. Idea one is mine, idea is LadyM's.

First idea: there is a 1600 x 1600 block region. Archipolis is in 400 x 400 block subregion centered on spawn. It is survival only. If you don't want to be a part of Archipolis, you may claim your own 200 x 200 subregion somewhere inside the 16k x 16k region aligned to a grid. These subregions will be in name only, and people can technically build anywhere. People are also free to build outside of the region without restrictions.

Second idea:there Archipolis is an 800 x 800 region center on spawn. It is survival only. You can choose to build there as a part of the city, or you can build outside the region, which is a free for all, no restrictions.

That is complicated and doesn't even consider the opinions already voiced. D:

The second idea sucks the least. But I personally don't like it. Just get rid of all the restrictions and let's play the map like we always have. No restrictions. If people don't want to play Creative, they don't have to. If people want the Creative players to stay away from their Survival creations, just say so. I get the sense that you want the Creative people away from the Survival people. That's no problem, I'll just build somewhere else.

But we can't fragment our central hub with borders and property lines and all this confusion.

I like the idea of separate zones for creative and survival. Also...
I just want to be able to actually play the game.

It would be nice to do stuff when you spawn, how it's set up right now, new players can only starve to death, and the help function doesn't explain how to join the spawn city. Or even make your own city?
I need a new tag.

OKAY. Ink helped me out and we have initiated what we call Code ****it.

My server works now. Here's the IP: 68.80.185.152

Have fun and do what you want. If you want creative, let me know. Don't troll people or I'm just gonna ban you, okay?


**EDIT**
I have a pretty large whitelist but let me know if you aren't on it. Admins are me (lolol), LadyM, and Ovi.

Anyway, we'll leave this server up until the other server gets sorted out. Or if enough people like it, we'll just leave the server up.

Suggestions:

1. Have everyone start in creative mode so they can play and don't die when they play. At this point the player can go off on their own and find a place outside the city since they can fly. We are not using a white list so anyone can join, hence the restriction in the spawn area.

2. Archipolis stays 800 x 800 area for survival mode using option 1 above. The rest is open to creative.

3. If player wants to be survival they just ask and they will be changed and they can now stay in the city and help develop it or go somewhere else. Roads and portals will be built so it will get easier as it goes.

4. Ovi makes a map showing a visual of what we're trying to do and the areas available.

5. Player can stake a claim to a 200x200 area within the city (based on above map) and it can be marked as their area. Areas can also be marked outside the city if you want others to know what your area is.

6. No one in creative goes to the end and kills the dragon.

7. Portals made in creative can be used to travel also. Just make them outside the city.

Ovi's had this idea for a long time and I'd like to give him a chance to sort it out and give it a try. I think getting it set up is the hardest part. So I'm willing to stick with it and make it work in a more simplified way. I think we should keep going with the idea and get it set up and if anyone wants to join us, that's awesome. The simple server wrapper gives us lots of options, we just have to figure out what's the best way to use them.

Since Pat has a server up that gives everyone options. :)
