Introducing "Towns", a new way for the community to work together to further survive and thrive on the Minecraft Server.What is a Town?
A Town is an official sub-community that works together to create a great-looking, stylized, in-game collection of homes. A Town will get special goodies to help them along their way and also to grow.How do I make a Town?
To gain Town status, you must follow the following basic rules.1. Set forth a Town Board
A Town Board is a structure near the entrance to your town that lists the following information.Town Name
Your Town Name must be short and easy to remember. Some examples include Rivercrest, Freedomville and New Grooseland.Founder
The Founder of the town must communicate with the Town members to help them work to improve the town. The Founder DOES NOT get any privliges, they may NOT order you to tear down your house, they may NOT evict you from a town. A Founder does not have to be a single person, it can be any number of things. For example "Fans of Crumbleton", "MC Gamer" or "FFF Community"Town Style
The Town Style is a set of guidelines to assist players to make houses that look great together. For example, list main blocks and highlight blocks, for example, in this photo:
The main blocks would be: Smooth stone, Pine Logs
The highlight blocks would be: Wood and Stone Slabs
Be sure to communicate the Style well for your town to look good. Always be sure help newcomers to your town to create functional, beautiful houses that fit with the Town Style.OPTIONAL:Town Tasks
It may be useful to keep things to be done on the Town Board. Notices
Need to tell your neighbors that you will be gone for a time? Need to tell your neighbors where an awesome cave is? Use the board!2. Town Wall
To become a town, you MUST have some sort of border around your town. While walls that fit with your Town's theme are very useful to keep everything enclosed and well-known, it is not necessary. However, there must be some indicator of your town borders, either through fence, block outline in the ground, or a moat. Find creative ways to ensure your town doesn't just blend with the normal landscape, make it your OWN landscape!3. Road System
In your town, you must have well constructed roads leading around your town. This will help you set out plots for the houses. Your roads should be kept well lit and connected to the entrances and exits of town.What are the benefits of having a Town?Blacksmith
Once made a town, you will be gain a Blacksmith to repair your items. Be sure to save a spot for your Blacksmith's shop, or even better, build one beforehand!Moderator Builds
Occasionally, a moderator may help your town out by helping you build something, or even building something completely on their own, for example, a public Nether Portal!Warp
Want people to easily be able to visit you? You will gain a warp of your town's name (/warp Rivercrest for example. ) that leads to your Town's enterance.Town Events
In the future, we plan to have events in which Towns will have competitions. For example, the Town residents will go to war in an organized PVP tournament, or even have a decorate-off like making your town as SCARY as possible for Halloween.Other
There are also lots of other potential benefits. Including other NPCs, gifts to help with construction as well as other seeeeeeecrets!I did all that! How do I make my town official?1. Submit it in this thread
Include the Town Founder, Town Name and coordinates (Find using F3 in-game) in your post2. Wait patiently
We will be making sure that all Towns live up to our requirements and it may take a day or two to get your Blacksmith in place.3. Once approved, make a Town thread!
Here in the Minecraft Server forum, make a thread titled "[TOWN] Rivercrest" - Replacing Rivercrest with your town's name. This should be submitted by one of the Founders.
In this thread, include any info that you have on your Town Board as well as a list of residents and also include screenshots.End
Thank you all for reading, hope you have fun creating your Towns, we can't wait to see them and see them all starting to pop up, thanks!
