Dem City Roads

I noticed that people started naming the roads on the server. This is great, no problems with that. I just want to define a few guidelines when doing so.

First off the 4 roads that extend from the center of spawn are reserved for community naming. I noticed the main center road through town had been named and already spoke with the member who placed that and sounds like we are ok giving a different road that name.

Roads running perpendicular to spawn will be Lanes, Cross streets (parallel to spawn) will be Avenues. There are 4 Lanes between industrial plots that will be named separately.

Avenues
A Mortin Ave
A-B Demacia Ave (sp?)
B-C Memorial Ave
C-D Yordle Ave
D-E Equestria Avenue
E-F Acacia Avenue
F-G
G-H
H

Lanes
1 Snuffie Lane
1-2
2-3 (Reserved for MW naming)
3-4
4-5
5-6 Icrontic Lane
6-7 Digital Lane
7-8 Whiskey Lane
8-9 Beierman Ave
9-10
10
I1-3
I3-5
I6-8 Hell's Highway (Officially Hell's Lane)
I8-10

Members have spent time 'normalizing' the look of the roads with sandstone and cobble. Everyone is free to work with their neighbors to customize the roads around their plots.

Standard sign post for street names have been placed. Currently builders have been using fence posts with signs on corners. This is fine but we are still open to suggestions. I think that every intersection needs some sort of sign post with the intersecting road names.

So throw them out here. If you already have them named, let me know so I can update the OP. Any deputes please PM me and we'll work it out. Priority naming will go to members who's plots are on that road.

    I realize we still need some optimization in the industrial sector, but are we supposed to standardize the road materials? Half appears to be sandstone and the other half appears to be stone.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    Work was done so the roads looked like roads. The final design of each road is to be decided by the plot owners on that road. We should come up with a standardized intersection though.

    Is the road that goes directly East out of spawn supposed to terminate in a treefarm like that, or is that a temporary tree farm?

    In other words: Should we go around or through in our attempt to make the road going east?
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    Go through it. 5 wide road, 5x5 clear above it. That may stay as a tree farm but it will have to be edited a bit.

    I'm relatively convinced after lurking the latest MC threads that Bobby has a career in city planning and civil engineering. :thumbsup:
  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    I move that A be renamed Morton Ave and 1 be renamed Snuffie Ln

    Need a street name for H, any ideas fellow H-laners?

    I've got two and both are terrible, I'm not good at naming things.

    Arkham road
    ADVENTURE LANE (or avenue I suppose)
  • colacola part legend, part devil... all man Balls deep Icrontian
    Why not Zoidberg?

  • d3k0yd3k0y Loveland, OH Icrontian
    I ripped through the Tree Farm back wall, I made the 5 wide, but only 3 high through the farm. I made the road extend about 200 blocks or so out the back.
  • BasilBasil Nubcaek England Icrontian
    I already named D-E 'Acacia Avenue' which seems to fit with the lane/avenue thing you have goin'.


    And obligatory:

    Come on, Turnip Turnpike!
  • SpencerForHireSpencerForHire Clawson, MI
    I'm not sure which it is but I previously named one Demacia St. guess it would be Demacia Ave?
  • I believe that is the A-B street if I understand it correctly (The road between the A plots and the B plots).
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ @TheButterflyman Icrontian
    East road goes out to the Mitey Worriers Resort now. Please don't take it any further. We're not sure yet how we want it to cross the territory.
  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Icrontian
    I'd like to at least have input into the naming of the street that is north of my house (the one that runs between my residential plot and those of CB and Zanthian, and intersects Acacia.
  • _k_k P-Town, Texas Icrontian
    Your mom. You know why.

    I finished putting up most of the street signs in the right places last night and will work on getting 4 signs at each intersection tonight. I will need any glowstone and signs people are willing to donate, just throw it in a chest at my house. Most of the streets still need names though. Once street names are agreed on and if you want to help set signs just go down the road, remove the placeholder sign, and put up the name like this.

    Look at the OP Canti, I updated it about an hour ago (probably as you were putting this post together)

    Also: 4 signs?

    I've looked at the OP, I don't understand the A-B, 1, 1-2 numbering system. The idea for 4 signs on each sign post is so you can see what the road names are no matter which direction you come at the intersection without needing to look at it from a different angle.
  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    I believe his numbering system refers to the town layout... so 1-2 would be the street between row 1 and row 2. A-B would be between column A and column B
  • CantiCanti =/= smalltime http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9K18CGEeiI&feature=related Icrontian
    I have no idea where row 1,2,etc or columns are. Make a picture please.
  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    Look at the plot request thread. Digi has them in the first post.

    I'll do up a better image showing the roads later tonight. The major flaw with your image Canti is that in our layout none of the industrial lanes other than Icrontic Lane (center) line up with the residential lanes. This opens up for more lanes to name.

    Ardi has it on the nose. 1 being the outside lane on the south. 1-2 being the road between plot rows 1 and 2, 2-3 between plot rows 2 and 3, ect.

    Thank you for all the work you are doing on this Canti.

    Found it and removed my picture. I'll get this figured out later.
  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Icrontian
    Since we're on the topic of signs, what is it that makes some of the signs show up on the map when the option is selecte (like the Acacia/Demacia signs) but some don't (like the place holder signs without street names)?
  • CantiCanti =/= smalltime http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9K18CGEeiI&feature=related Icrontian
    I don't think there are any placeholder signs up yet.
  • CantiCanti =/= smalltime http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9K18CGEeiI&feature=related Icrontian
    Yordle Avenue for C-D
  • CantiCanti =/= smalltime http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9K18CGEeiI&feature=related Icrontian
    All signs are in place now. Just need names and glowstone.
