    Hey guys, player who basically only exists as of right now on the forums.

    I have some proposals, I don’t mind if they’re refused as they ‘make the game better’ or whatever, its basically just bringing up a topic which I think needs sorting.

    SO, If you didn’t already know, in the East Mesa of the Iborian/Juice Sea, there is 1 large canal and a smaller, under construction canal. The larger canal is called Gordy’s Gate and I remember when Gordy set it up, he basically capitalised a canal by adding a toll of (I think) 1  diamond to open the gate and allow your ship(s) to pass on through. It was ok at the time, he was active etc, but recently (like past 12 months I think) he has been inactive for some unknown reason.

    I didn’t bother bringing this up at the time, as I was sure he’d return or whatever, but I was beginning to build a small canal nearby, which just due to time, lack of labour and just other interests/projects, I just never got around to fully completing, which could serve any ships which could fit through, and I often debated capitalising it like Gordy’s Gate.

    However, something months on, I have realised and have debated also with myself whether to propose this, but I’ve decided I might as well now.

    PROPOSITION: We should remove the Gordy’s Gate payment feature and remove the claim, and instead replace it with an admin claim with some claims at either end to prevent people from blocking it or capitalising off of it.

    *But leave the gate part how it is (removing the barrier though obviously), as it’s historical to some extent, the canal can be edited though, such as making it deeper

    The other proposition which is also included here, was that my claims (as well as some other people’s) around/on the smaller Iborian canal, should also be removed, should be completed also, and then be admin claimed (avoiding conflict with Apple’s base).

     

     

    Positives

    This would in turn, open up this sea for more travel, and allow people to move their ships much more freely, as it can be a pain otherwise to get to events (e.g. ship battles), especially when you have to go through the hassle of remembering a toll and being able to navigate the sometimes shallow canal.

    This could also encourage boats slightly more, though that is just for people moving their ships about in that area, rather than across the server.

    Negatives

    Me, Apple, Astrobolt- and anyone else in that sea, have to put up with more traffic, and possibly new colonies/bases, which hopefully the staff could police and encourage people instead to go to locations not so near us.

    (I have no other negatives in mind really)

     

    Anyway, I’ll be posting a picture below to show the plan/proposal I have for the area, taking into account also Apple’s claims.

    I also would like to note that I don’t mind my claims being removed IN that small area and (I hope) the claim blocks come back to me on that one, but I also don’t mind if the Iborian one is just regenerated also, as I wouldn’t be that annoyed.

     

    Thank you for your time and considerations, and please ask any questions and provide any comments you wish to do. 🙂

    Planned Proposals for Canals

    *orange zone note, an area that doesn’t need to be claimed, but rather policed by mods/staff periodically to prevent blockages but also so that Apple can still expand his port if he wishes, (and I have talked to him before, and he said he’d be fine avoiding it, but I don’t know if that has changed).

    Thing is, people use Gordon’s gate a lot as it is. We have had people claim the front of it and try to control it – admins just remove the claims.

    No need to admin claim it really in my opinion :/

    I have seen that some players from a particular group who actively tried to block the gates entrance/exits by either fusing movecraft ships/subs/whathaveyou to the sides of the canal (which is made of stone brick, a fusable block, more on that later), or by claiming the entrance/exits and building a 1 block wide bridge/line across so nobody can pass through. I wont say who did this, but im sure they’d know who they are.

    some solutions maybe, use WE to change stone brick blocks to double stone brick slabs. double slab variants cant be used on ships, and cant be fused. (that’s why both canals that TAS and friends had built were lined with double stone slab, not only to make it look better but to prevent idiots from getting their ships stuck)

    it’d be nice to have it admin claimed, but that’s up to staff; though max already said no to that idea. even just the entrance/exits so nobody claims it and blocks it off.

    If I had a nickel for every time I, Ooo hey, a butterfly!! *runs off chasing the butterfly*

    Oh, I didn’t know it was used often. It was more of something I’ve had on my mind lately that was all. Is the gate part removed? But should instead it be left how it is?

    Yeah the gate is currently open and up in the air. It has been open for some time, allowing anyone to freely use it. Not sure if he opened it permanently when he left or if someone else opened it. But currently it is open and free for anyone to use to sail through. We actually used it for two ships the other day. Your proposal is interesting, but due to Gordon’s Gate being actively available I’m not sure how needed it is. It is an interesting idea though.

    @The_Network , I was not aware it was open aha.

    Well, at least I can finally put this worry to rest, and remove my claims from the ‘Iborian Canal’ once I get back. :/

    Thanks all, though I don’t recommend shutting this topic as it could be a good place for people to report problems at the gate etc.
