Port Silver: Harbour Town Now is the chance for everyone to participate in building the capital. Port Silver will be divided in different districts, each built by different people. We will hold contests and select the best applications for building the capital. Below will be the general specifications of what the Harbor Town must look like. Applicants can submit their ideas and inspirations, and examples of their work. The better you show what you plan to build, the better we are able to judge your application. We may decide on one or several winners, this depends on the type of applications we receive. To get a feeling of the surrounding area and the location of the harbour town, it is recommend to visit the area yourself. From spawn, take the bedrock portal that says Port Silver (new) This is the location of the Harbour Town: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/46464258/tijdelijk/location.png This is its location on the Dynamic Map: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/46464258/tijdelijk/districts.png Requirements The Harbour Town is the location where new players are allowed to live when they first join the server. The town should make this possible. The docks area on the left holds boats for show(so they are not actually used) and drydocks. The transport and docks area on the right holds boats, airships and a tower for portals. These might be built by a seperate person, but if you have good ideas then you may propose them. There must be variation in height. The current area is quite flat and I cut out a big chunk near the harbour, but that's only to show that the harbour will probably end up being close to the water level. You are however completely free in changing that however you see fit, and you should. The Harbour Town must look very medieval, with buildings made mostly out of logs, planks, sand and sandstone. It is a very poor district. Buildings must be in close proximity of eachother, creating many stray alleys and corridors. The building style must be chaotic and (look) unplanned. Preferably there will be canals of some sort. Inspiration Here are some pictures to give a general idea on what it will look like. Remember you are free and encouraged to use your own creativity. You don't need to stick to the shape or look for the buildings, but these are good pictures to show what the streets should look like. Buildings are very close to eachother, things aren't fancy. Buildings are mostly made out of wood and sandstone/sand and logs. Mostly these pictures set a good mood for the town: http://bit.ly/MeSXN1 http://bit.ly/LldzEP http://bit.ly/MdtxA0 Bowerstone from Fable is a good example of the 'type' of town we're looking to create. Bowerstone itself is too modern, ours should be more medieval. But it sets the mood quite well: http://bit.ly/xVMVB1 http://bit.ly/KQuH40 http://bit.ly/L2UrJ1 http://bit.ly/L2Um85 It is not easy to find good pictures of a medieval harbour, or something that would fit our new capital very well. But here are a few: http://bit.ly/JWDUIL http://bit.ly/KchowV http://bit.ly/LqzGrQ Building Procedure The entire capital will be built legit, with all materials bought off of the Auction House by us. After your application has been approved we will discuss more in detail how we will make it fit. You will need to provide us with information on what kind of materials you will need. You will also be provided with iron tools. If you apply you need to be serious about this and be able to complete the build within a reasonable amount of time. You don't need to slave away at it day and night, but it's not going to work if you come online for a few hours a week to place a few blocks. The set up is that you will only be building, and not gathering any resources. We will handle the resources for you. Remember that upon request more terraforming can be done. For example we can add more mountains, hills, or remove a bit of land. Take this opportunity to order me around.. Application Template: Applications are done by one person and communication is done with one person alone. However, you are free to allow anyone you wish to help you. We expect quite a bit to be posted as examples and inspiration. This is the capital, we must have a clear picture of what it is going to look like. You can do this through ingame examples, drawings, pictures of layout. Anything that paints the right picture for us will work. You will atleast need to show us some basic ideas on how to do the layout and an ingame example of a street with houses and buildings. Anything more than that will greatly increase your chances. We understand that some people don't like to plan their builds and we will respect that, just do what you can.

Every new player will get to see it, and if they want to even live in it.
