ICMC: ICTown and Build Plot Requests

BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats !SoCal Icrontian
edited Feb 2012 in Minecraft
All plots of ICTown are currently accounted for. I will update this thread as soon as possible. Expansion will be planed. Keep an eye on the Minecraft forum for further details.

I am going to control the land on our map so that we have an organized server. This will both make transportation easier and sight seeing a better experience.

Those of you who want to build
I need to know how much land you need. You can still build whatever you want, and still almost wherever you want. I am going to grid out the map to make plots. If you want 1000x1000 plot to build your own castle or a 10x10 house, just say it and I will find you a space to do so.

Spawn and surrounding area

The center of the map will be community builds. Spawn in the middle, a new Icrontic Town with residential (height limit, must be houses) and industrial (Towers of pain, ect) plots and Icrontic Farms. More specific info and threads on that later.

The Outlands
I will refer to land outside of assigned land as Outlands. Outlands are fair game for exploring and mining until the plot of land is assigned to someone. There should be no building in the Outlands other then small survival shacks or mining camps. If you find something interesting in the Outlands and wish to build on it, just let me know so I can assign a plot containing it.

Game Generated Structures
Strongholds and NPC Villages are community property. Finding them should be reported to me asap so that we can plan around them. At least for the first of each we will work to enhance but preserve them. All goodies in dungeons are those of the finders, but we request that the spawners be preserved and reported so that we may use them as community grinders.

Icrontic Town
All plots will have 5 wide roads between them at ground level. These are the top of a 5x5 tunnel for underground travel / connections /entrances.

Plot Sizes:
Residential plots
Size: 21x21
Build Limitations: Nothing more than 10 blocks above ground level, nothing more than 5 blocks below ground level. The 6th level must be solid blocks.

Industrial plots
Size: 35x35
Build limitations: Nothing more than 20 blocks below ground level, no height restriction

The order of request will be used to resolve any plot assignment decisions.

Players may build bridges between plots to any neighbors who agree to this but these must be more than 5 blocks above the road (leaving 5x5 clear above every road). Building over the road (again more than 5 above road) is fine as long as not taken out of hand. There will no doubt be tunnels through mountains, the standard size for these will be 5x5 above the road level.

Updated: 02/09/12

Use this thread to:
Request build plots in the Outlands (you don't have to tell me what you are building, but I need to know how much space you need). If you have geographical requests (lots of sand, forest, ect) be sure to mention them and I will do my best to accommodate.
Request ICTown plots, Limit 1 residential and 1 industrial plot per player.
Discuss land plots with me. Share your ideas.

Mine on!

    Sounds awesome, I plan to get back into minecraft sometime over the holidays so will have some fun with a new IC town.

    Cheers for organising this stuff Mr Digi.

    I would like to request a 100x100 outland plot in an area where forest borders desert.

    Also putting in my request for a residential plot in ICTown.

    For industrial plots in ICTown, are these for farming and such, or just grinders, etc?

    An excellent question. The Industrial plots are basically for whatever you want. To put it blunt, they don't have to look good. The only limitation will be underground. It's available for those who want to build in ICTown but do not want to adhere to the building & height restraints of the Residential neighborhood. Most of current ICTown would fall into the Industrial side of New ICTown. If you want to build a ground to build limit cobble tower, you would do it in the Industrial plots. If you only wish to build a little house to call home, Residential is for that.

    Another excellent question. Correct, all builds must still adhere to the rules including the PG-13 rule.

    I request a residential plot. Also, what are the subterranean constraints for all plot types?
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ @TheButterflyman Icrontian
    I'd like to request a town plot, and an industrial sector plot. I'll also want a wilderness plot somewhere, a nice sized lake, maybe 500x500? I'll have to think about that one a bit. It's tough trying to visualize how much space I want at numbers that size. I think I'll go look how big Sandstone Base used to be for comparison.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian

    I'm thinking for residential it will be 4 blocks below ground (enough for a 3 block tall basement w/ floor). Something similar for industrial, maybe 7 blocks to allow a couple levels. The idea is within the community area, the underground will be an ever growing strip mine for community building materials.

    Outlands, no limits. Your plot is your plot bedrock to build limit.

    I would like to request claims to a plot of land for a rather substantial castle/spire/tower building, not sure what you'd classify that as. I'd prefer a plot right next to ICTown, not unlike turnip castle is (as far as location). Something right next door. It's not nearly the size of Turnip Castle, I can fit it on a plot of 50x50, but the height of it is 75 blocks including the basement level. With the cloud limit at 128, basic math leaves me needing to adjust the ground where i'm building below normal sea level and I'd need below-ground build rights down to about 50~ish (Maximum. Doubt I'll dig below 55, extra 5 depth is buffer for oopsies.). Think you can make that work? If not I'll take a somewhat nearby outlands plot, on a low, somewhat flat piece of land.
  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Orange, CA Icrontian
    I'd like to request a standard-sized residential plot in IC Town, along with a wilderness plot adjacent to that of CB, in approximately the same size. Perhaps covering part of the same lake, if possible?

    Also, what are the rules around "ocean" plots - same as other wilderness?
  • I hereby request a plot of land in this fine town to construct my domicile upon. I will however prefer to scout out the land beyond the town before claiming my fair share.

    I was thinking that you and I (and the other Mitey Worriers) would share the lake plot for building our new base on and around (and for great justice), since I only ever play at the same time as you's guyses anyhow. :)

    I'd also love a plot in town, and I'll be needing some building space some distance away from town as well, more on that later though.

    I need a build permit somewhere...I'm thinking of making a random farm thingy so maybe something away from the town and perhaps a small plot for a 'market stall' in the town itself?

    I need at least a 100X100 plot, might be buildin' a big house. Also, I prefer it by a mountain... But you don't need to do that if you can't find a spot! :)

    I think that should be easy enough to accommodate. AFAIK, we are more "organized" the ICtown castle plots and immediate area, then the "wilds" are more do what you want.

    You mentioned that there is a height limit on ICTown residential. Have you decided yet what it will be? Also, how big are the residential plots going to be?

    ICTown plots will start getting assigned on Saturday on an "as they get built" basis :P
    Then what was the point of the request thread?

    Not all of the Mitey Worriers will be available on start day (and maybe none of us. We play usually only on Thursdays), but we all wanted adjacent housing plots. We would very much like to be able to have this claim drawn up previous to start time, andnot dependant upon attendance.

    A string of combo plots would be sweet if that possible in the layout.

    :scratch: To get a count of people that needed plots and to get Outland plot sizes so I can plan the map layout. As town plots are being laid out on Saturday the next person in line has the opportunity claim it or pass. I must have expressed what I was trying to say wrong because your questions doesn't make a lot of sense to me based on your quote.

    I've got you down for 4 adjacent plots based on your requests. That will indeed be fulfilled along with every other request in this thread. If you need more then 4, just let me know before Saturday so I can assign them for you.

    There is only 1 pair of combo plots next to each other. You are indeed one of the 6 who have first shot at one, though none of the other worriers are.

    Will be posting an MSPaint rendering tonight.

    Edit: Map Layout added to OP

    Maybe I misunderstood what you meant by 'as they get built'. I read that as: "The jerks who are able to get into the server on Saturday will get first pick of plots, disregarding the request thread, and if you're not there on Saturday, too bad, you get last pick, and might get crap." :p

    If that's not what it means, then, yes, the statement needs clarification. I was expecting from previous descriptions that plots would all be assigned prior to even opening the server.

    Colgere hasn't posted in the thread yet, but I am assuming that he will want plots in town near the other Mitey Worriers as well. :)

    Ideally, I think, we'd get the two adjacent combo plots, plus the three residential and industrial plots nearest those on either side of the road, though now that I think of it, I'm not sure that all of the group wanted Industrial plots... We didn't discuss this, and weren't expecting to need to be there to choose plots. I just learned that Zanthian will definitely be able to be there though, so I guess we can try to each tell him what we want, and he can represent our interests, and we'll be able to live with what he ends up with for us. :)
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    @CB Well the way you phrase it sounds crappy.... but I'm going to stick with it anyways. Yes, the builders that will be there helping us lay out the foundation of the map will get their choice of plots. My trump card to that is there are no crap plots :) I'll put Colgere down for a plot in your group.

    I'll send PMs to the other 5 members who are eligible for a combo plot. If I get a few declines then I think that would open up the opportunity for the two adjacent combos to go to Worriers and then I can fulfill CB's above ideal request.
