    As promised here is the thread for spawn discussion. This can be used to discuss all spawn related topics. Please keep all discussions and comments/questions here so we can keep the voting and build contest threads free of clutter. I'll be updating this post soon with an outline of the new ideas for spawn and I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it. More soon...

    Anyone else working on the new spawn walls contest? I'll edit this post with a new pic once it's light out, but here's what I've got so far for modular walls. One with a covering, one without.

    Personally haven't started it myself, Cap, but those look really nice.

    I was hoping for a new building that would contribute a new setting, rp motivation, or something. I personally don't see the appeal of what amounts to changing the drapes.

    ok so imagine your drapes

    your current drapes are moldy and rotten and have tons of moth holes and cigarette burns and they're barely hanging onto the rail

    would you not want to swap them out for some new drapes even if you barely look at them

    If the choice was between adding a new kitchen or new drapes, I'd probably pick the kitchen. I barely notice the drapes any how.

    I get that. I know that eventually there will someday be more to do at spawn. I just was hoping for sooner than
    later.

    I'm sure that your new drapes will look nice though.

    Nah, it's not even the drapes, it's like the outside of your house. It's literally the first thing you see when approaching a city (that, and maybe the tops of buildings)

    Props to you my dude, the walls look good!

    Nightvision potions should help until they can, if they do.

    I have brightness set all the way up, as well, to build during nighttime. Screenshots can still come out pretty dark, though. Didn't think of nightvision potions.
    I was wondering, besides walls, are there specific buildings we should try to sample? tavern, shop, home? roads, alleys? anything particular? Is there a certain size max or min in mind for these buildings?
    I know I'm new, and late to the party, but just in case I can get these done for the contest.

    Just a sample of how you would change the walls, gatehouse, and what sort of materials you think should make up spawn. Whichever style is chosen will then be the base materials for spawn and will be used to create and influence future service buildings (like library/tavern/etc...) So all we need at this point is examples of how you would change the walls/gatehouse/and general materials used in spawn...then the winner will get a copy of current spawn in creative to make those changes. Hope that answers your question! :)

    sorry to be the critical whiner here, but every time I'm getting used to the new tavern after we switch spawns, we're already getting a new one.
    I hope after this one is made, the very tavern at spawn will be brought to every new spawn we create.
    I always thought of the spawn-tavern to be a constant factor where people meet, hate to see it changed up all the time.
    But that is just my personal opinion.

    what... Cap you were one of the people complaining about the spawn and wanting a new one. Spawn's getting redone and progress going backwards because of all the commentary on it.

    New wall/gate design, new tavern, etc. What do you think these contests are for?

    The way Poof said 'every new spawn we create' felt like he meant new maps with new spawn cities. I think the current spawn is utter trash and needs to be redone (or better, nuked off the face of the map), but the location isn't changing.

    It's amazing there are any staff who have the motivation to do anything around here with the sort of contributions you give.
