    Hello all! Thank you for taking the time to read this since maybe people don't bother checking the threads!
    As many of may you know Wade and I made a new town, temporarily called GreenSprings. Well, since we have never built a town before we were looking for somes suggestions of things that we could offer our residents. We would like them to come to the town and be able to do things that actually benefit them.

    Here were some of my ideas:
    1. Farms (Automatic or no?)
    2. An enchanting area w/ some anvils.
    3. Fishing dock
    4. Animal Pens obviously.
    5. No clue.

    So you can see why I need some help.

    Any other suggestions would be highly appreciated!

    As previously mentioned, I think the farms should be manual as:
    1. It helps herbalism
    2. It teacher courteous playing (make sure you have clear signs posted at all entrances to replant)
    3. It gives someone something easy to do if they're badgering you with "I NEED A JOB!" and you don't have an idea immediately
    You had mentioned clearly labeling streets, and I know I mentioned ease of getting around the town, so make sure it's set up in a way that makes sense, and is easy to follow.
    • Also possibly include a town board with the town rules and some helpful hints right in front of people as they spawn - things like "use /warp mining to get materials! and use /t spawn to come home!"
    • Town donation chest?
    • Random less valuable supplies in a town vault for citizens to use? Stone, dirt, food etc that isn't needed elsewhere?

    I'll edit my post and/or add new replies as I think of more things. Good luck!

    Awesome thank you! I must have completely read over your suggestion of not having automatic farms, I'm sorry. All these are such good ideas and will definitely be implemented in the town.

    The town was built last week, that isn't up for debate. Money isn't the issue. I am just not sure what to put inside it.

    I'm not sure who you are talking to Rem?

    Anyways, no one is answering so you can delete this thread if you want.

    Did you ask Erik for a section for your town in the forums? Can you convince your townmates to use the forums for when you aren't online at the same time?

    Oh I haven't. The members we have are just helping us build the town, I'm not sure how many will actually stay.

    The wiki [link] tells you exactly what is needed for a town board and how to get one. Please follow that method instead of simply "ask Erik" :I

    Mietm do you know how I can change the biome of a plot to Flower Forest? I have been able to change them to Taiga and Ocean but not to a flower forest. Any ideas?

    I'm looking for commands to change biomes in the first place and failing miserably. I know flower forest is actually a subset of forests - head to a flower forest ingame and use f3 to see precisely what it is listed as (is it one word? Is there an underscore? Is it something like forest:3?) and see if that works. If that fails, I'm afraid I have no further help in that matter.

    Sadly it just says Flower Forest. I've googled my fingers off and can't find an answer. This is the website I go to for commands that I can't find under all of the helps in game.

    That's custom! And I'm working on it! I've got another patch in the works that should make biomes easier! And the only reference for any of this was our wiki which is still dead!

    For now /t set biome (anything from here)
