Contest Idea: Survival guildhalls

    So got an idea for some creative contests and if it's not good for contests then maybe if people from the Creative server want to help with this I would be SUPER grateful. If you do it as a contest, maybe do a different guildhall each week. The prize would be that your build would be a pretty important part of our survival server that people would visit all the time. Most of the admins on Survival are busy building / implementing features and don't have time to get creative with building things. We have a need for several building to be built which will be integrated into our Survival spawn island.

    We want to build several guidhalls for the Survival spawn islands. The purpose of these guild halls is to have a place for people to visit and learn about the various McMMO tradeskills that exist, players would get bonus McMMO experience within or near the guild hall, and eventually there would be quest NPCs inside the guild hall that will give out quests. For example if you get on survival and type "/warp fish" you will goto the fisherman's guild. Similarly we want to build a few other "guildhalls" for other McMMO trade skills.

    So here are the things we need. There are some technical requirements for the build, but besides that you can go with whatever you think works. We would want it to fit with the overall scale of builds at spawn, but each building would need to meet the ascetic of the "guild".

    - Farmers Guild (would include a small community farm with a little of each crop except maybe not netherwart)

    - Blacksmith Guild (would be for repairing and smelting, should include probably a lava furnace, some other furnaces, iron and gold blocks for McMMO repairing)

    - Forestry Guild (this would be for the Woodcutting, Excavation, and Acrobatics skills McMMO skills, again no major technical requirements, just use your imagination)

    - Mages Guild (this would be for the alchemy McMMO skill, here it would be nice to have a small netherwart farm, an infinite water source, brewing stands, and a level 30 capable enchanting table setup)

    - Warriors Guild (no technical requirements, but imagine what a fantasy guild hall would look like, a stable somewhere in the build to reflect the "taming" McMMO skill would be nice)

    - Dungeoneering Guild - For this we're looking for a gloomy looking building which would have several (up to about 10) different portals (does not need to look like a nether portal, but needs to be recognizable as a portal) which go to various dungeons we'll be building for the survival server. This would include probably quest NPCs which would send you to a particular dungeon to do a quest. Some nice things to encorporate into the build would include an iron and gold block for repair/salvage, a crafting table, and an enderchest. A treasure vault would be a cool thing to include in the build.

    If your build is picked, we reserve the right to make minor modification to the build to integrate it into it's home in spawn or to meet specific technical needs of the implementation, but will for the most part honor your build as intended.

    Sounds like a neato idea for contests.

    As a suggestion though for a few things:
    • THEMING IDEA: Forestry guild is a woodcutters/lumberjack camp in a forest. Acrobatics grinding area at the top of a tree (to the bottom).
    • THEMING IDEA: Warriors Guild. Nordic hall like in Skyrim. No particular reason, just what I think would work.
    • TECHNICAL IDEA: While I know you said you want a gloomy look for the dungeoneering guild. It might also be an idea to house some grinding type dungeons in either the mage tower/guild basement (for xp levels), or the warriors guild (because it kinda suits the theming idea)

    If this doesn't go ahead for contests, then I'll try and hammer out a few prototypes in the next week for you. Any size you want?

    /warp fish for a general idea of size I guess.

    I could work on this a bit. I have some ideas too, but any requests you have I can try to add into the halls too.

    Hmm, I can perhaps build in SP and put the MCEdit schematics for download. :D

    We can gather a group of builders kind of like the creative contests area to just all collab build it

    Yeah I mean if ya'll wanna go to town and collab build it, it doesn't need to be a contest. Sounds like people are excited to help build it either way.

    I've started work on a farm guild hall. I will warn you: I usually have some weird ideas so many of my builds will not be actual halls.

    As a note, how about adding these 'xp buffing areas' to towns as well? Similar purpose to the casinos of old

    Righteo then, I've smashed out a Warrior's Guild, which can be seen at /warp SFarm. Heavily inspired by Nordic builds and my vague memories of playing Skyrim.

    Imma work on a Mage's Guild next, which is going to follow a Asian/Feudal Japanese feel I hope (First time trying it).

    I think towns have their own benefits and there might be other benefits for towns in the future.
    I want to encourage people to use and culminate around spawn more often, we can address town needs in the future.

    I like it, it's interesting, but also practical from a survival build perspective.

    Yes or no?

    Oh great, I was thinking it would be a bit big (in comparison to /warp fish on survival). And yeah, I've learnt over the years not to go overboard on detailing if other people are going to be copying it.

    I've made a forestry guild. It's at my plot at /warp monthly.

    Just using the space since I don't got anywhere else to put it.

    When exactly do you need this? Or an approximate "due date"?
    I'll get to work on the Dungeoneering Guild building.

    Edit: You can see my progress in the Builder I plotworld at /warp DN_DGuild

    There is no deadline. It's one of the next major projects to be rolled out but we also have to roll out the quest mod too, so it's kinda like... I don't want to say ASAP because there's no huge rush. Once we get some builds that will work and I'm happy with them, going to get them all put together in one place, decide on them, then get them loaded over to survival.

    I'm gonna try to make one of each over by /warp penelope just for fun.

    I hate to drop a project so I decided to start this back up. I just wanted to say a few things:

    • First, do they have to be actual halls? Or could we have one general guild hall that has warps to all the individual themed buildings?
    • Second, I threw together a quick fisherman's guild (And yes I know we already have one), so here's how it looks:


    Is this the idea or look what we are going for? Its what I mean by the individual themed buildings. At spawn we could have a hall that inside has warps to each guild "area" that has a mini theme. If we want regular themed guild halls I can start making those. I just wanted a general idea first.

    You can see it at /warp fishermanguild on creative
