1. Scotty, Cynix and I set up the Nether Hub. After the initial phase began, we noticed no real use or participation from other players so we pretty much just left it as is. Most didn’t want to help construct it and some that did just did whatever the hell they wanted instead of working together. The tunnels stretch to the zone wall I think, at least a few of them do. A few have some random locations portaled up but for the most part people just /res tp Wither to get to the Wither Area. Again, another area that we kind of said, blah too. We could half slab the whole area around except the fortress, but it still produces a good amount of withers even without that as is, if you’re patient. There’s even a channel on the TeamSpeak Server devoted to the Nether Build. I wouldn’t mind resurrecting the project and working on it again if I could get some support. I think the Nether’s a pretty cool place, but I rarely ever need to go there unless I need quartz. If you’d like to see a change, start asking around in game and on the forums to get some more people involved. There’s simply just too much work and not enough labor. I can’t force 10 people to work on the Nether. Hell, I’ve even offered to pay diamonds and server cash for people’s work and I can’t get anyone involved.
Linking up portals can be done, but in my opinion, I’d just give up on having them function properly. There are too many too close together and they mess up the link. We spent time trying to correct this, but players would just build more portals where they shouldn’t and start the mislinks again. My thoughts were to build monumental looking Nether Hubs spaced out perfectly throughout the world, but other portals throw it off. The only way to insure it works would be to destroy all other portals, build spaced out portals, and then disable the ability to build more somehow, but that sounds like stepping on toes to me. People would rather build a portal in their base rather than run 50 blocks to enter a nearby one. Even if it were to only take you 7 seconds.
Cynix’s Home- As with the first 2 examples, some/most players are lazy. If there’s something offered of value for free, whether it be iron, ender farm, cows, blaze farms, people will swarm it and take advantage of it, hurting others that have either built whatever it is or those that wish to use it respectfully. 0 work=100%yield It’ the nature of the best. I’ve complained ’til I’m blue in the face and I’ve just given up. You simply just can’t trust everyone.
I don’t know what to tell ya bro. I hate it for ya, I go through the same nonsense, but with our current open door registration policy, you’ll just have to learn to shrug it off and move on. We simply cant screen the good ones from the bad ones before they join the server. The more people that join the server, the more often these problems are going to start to arise, so try not to let it get to ya. At the moment it’s just a mild inconvenience. Picture if we had 5 times the players.
