Nice...thanks for the cartographic history! That was my first town way back in May 2013.
I connected the northern road out of the Capital to the E/W highway. Take a run on it and let me know what you think. I may try to connect Anvil if I have time.
I strongly suggest to send a forum conversation to DrownedGaming and TehNoobPwnzor before building a road to Anvil. Not all towns want to be connected.
About the north wild to Czechpoint connection - Good job on building, needs some experience on planning though. See my Roadbuilding tutorial - road needs to stick to the terrain (so even if it gets griefed, the pathway on the ground is still visible), and there should be as few bridges and tunnels as possible - if these parts get griefed, it may be really dangerous for a rider. So a bridge over the jungle and a tunnel under the ocean bring some safety concerns.
Ahhh...never considered griefing, just sightseeing. I'll check out your tutorial and find something else to distract my attention on /main.
And try to find some cobble. I usually mine with a Silk Touch pick and toss all the stone into lava.
Seeing the griefer banned is poor satisfaction after losing a horse so we always have to find ways to minimize risks. Beside the griefing risk, waterfalls on both sides of the underwater tunnel made me dismount the horse, and there were few low clearance blocks inside the tunnel (slopes need more than 3 blocks of air to prevent suffocating a rider).
I tried newly built cobble road, and was pleasantly surprised with easy routing and how fast and smooth it was. Very good job on planning and definitely a joy to ride, looking forward to see this one finished!
Thanks for all your tips and feedback. I've never been a horse rider so didn't realize restrictions for height and dismounting. The waterfall entrance to glass tunnel was a visual thing. I'll leave the glass tunnel but make the road look abandoned/broken and totally remove the wooden jungle path.
Another map update. An interesting fact is that one of recent towns, nixon, has been restarted in its original location from almost 2 years ago.
Awwww yeah! This is an awesome thread... Can't believe you have some shots of Nixonville.
Sorry for disappearing there for a while, I've had 2 kids since Nixonville (hence the hiatus) but should be back for a while.
Again good work on the history keeping. Your a good man Barry
For those interested in seeing how the current mining world looks like:
This made me wonder how would the town distribution look like if all towns currently (2017-Dec-22) in debt would be gone...
Just noticed this, but the hole that Kai and I dug is visible from orbit lol
Can you but a pointer on where?
Love this map!
Sorry but no, i have only this picture, not actual map chunks.
Today marks a one year with no new towns on the map, not even during the christmas season. Will Eclipse hold the title of the last town that has ever been started here?
That last, edited map is rather startling.
