Nether Hub?

    Is there any chance of a Nether Hub? Or in the alternative, since that is hard work, could an Admin place a Nether portal at Spawn, and then place the corresponding Nether Portal in the nether at around y=100? Then give out the nether coordinates. Those wishing to connect could build their own passage. I find digging at 100 is generally easier than at lower levels.

    Just a thought.

    Thanks

    I don't understand the point of this on survial or vanilla...

    Traveling to see someone else, maybe to share resources is a lot faster in the nether. In the nether its easier to cut a 300 block path to someone's base than it is to travel a 2400 blocks in the over world. Personally I'd like to share some resources with newbies to the vanilla server. I have a skelly spawner and it drops a lot of used armor and bows, giving them a chance to make it to a different biome.

    What I am asking, is why is a admin needed to do anything?

    Only an admin can build in spawn chunks. Although I guess it doesn't have to be in the spawn.

    With us not being able build at spawn it would be difficult to have a message board or place chests or signs for others. I assume Worldedit/world guard is being used. It's been a while but I don't think it allows permissions at the block/item level.

    just make a nether hub a bit off spawn

    That's a good idea. I would prefer right at spawn or at least some signs. Also. Isn't the no-build limit at spawn 200 blocks? That is pretty far.

    BTW does anyone know the cords to spawn? I don't have them written down.

    200 is far enough that you don't see player builds when you spawn in. It's supposed to be a trusted-player-only build area, by request. Keldt pushed for this, bother him.

    And 0,y,0.

    Yeah... that... exactly.

    So... who are the "Trusted" players? You ask? Who decides who the trusted players are? We assumed someone who was SUPER ACTIVE and pushed for Vanilla to be created, oh I dunno, someone like Keldt. Anyone is welcome to step up and be a pseudo-admin, maybe a moderator rank, or whatever on Vanilla. Those who are interested maybe contact me? Or does the community just want to remove the protected area around spawn so newbies can grief like crazy and make our lives a living hell in terms of having to do constant rollbacks?

    I am not certain who Keldt is. I don't recognize that as an IGN. The people I see playing are SkittlesQueen, DMan, JoJo and DamnSparks. There are others who likely play during the day. But nothing has happened with the spawn area, AFAIK and no Hub.

    I don't want griefing and player builds, trusted is fine with me. Just looking for ideas to make it easier for people to keep in touch and help out. I'll contact back channel to see what I can do to help.

    BTW, is the 200 block spread the same in the Nether?

    256x256 around [0,-1], [0,-1] in overworld.
    32x32 around [0,-1], [0,-1] in nether.
    The 'member' group now has spawn build rights. (Everyone is normally in 'default' group)
