Okay, Skeptiville is now open for it's first five residents. Meeyola has taken slot 5, so that leaves 4 more. Here is a current map of the city. Only the North East quadrant is complete:
There is a portal in the center, inside the giant sequoia. It links to an identical portal on Gliese_581d, just outside of AB's inverted pyramid castle thing. This is a temporary location - we will be off of AB's lawn as soon as we get a permanent location. Zytheran is working out some kinks in the permissions for the portal system - the portal won't work for everyone (myself included). If you want to take the long way go to Nemoris Crux, coordinates X: -203, z: -203. Make sure to note that those are NEGATIVE numbers
. Those coordinates are for the center of the city - you will reach the edge before then. If you happen to come from the north or east where the exterior wall is complete look for the center of the wall - there is a tunnel and minecart line leading to the city heart there.
If you are interested you can claim a spot here. There will eventually be 20 spots, but for now there are only 5 so if you aren't going to be active for a while you may want to leave the current spots for people who are.
There are a few rules that must be observed in Skeptiville regarding import/export restrictions and building restrictions.
The building restrictions are simple: Each resident gets three plots. The only restrictions involve build height and staying inside the borders of the plot. The grass easements between the sidewalk and street are off limits with the exception of flowers. Trees have a bad habit of damaging the street lights. The 16 x 16 plots, marked in blue, have no build height restrictions. The 24 x 24 plots, marked in red, have a build limit of 192. The 32 x 32 plots, marked in yellow, have a build limit of 128. This gives the city a rough profile like this:
Of course, you don't have
to build to the maximum limit
As to import/export restrictions; nothing brought into Skeptiville may be brought out again. Obviously the occasional loaf of bread isn't really a problem. It is more the double chest of diamond blocks you requested from Loki - they have to stay in the city. No one will police this - we're still using the honor system. I trust you! Don't break my heart!
Now, as to imports; you may bring anything in from anywhere that allows export. Right now that is limited to the two Gliese maps (and their associated Nether maps). This means you can't bring anything into Skeptiville from the rest of Nemoris Crux. Again, I don't think anyone is worried about a loaf of bread or stone pick axe; use your judgement. Completed CTM maps are also open to export, but as of now only to Skeptiville as some players are concerned that the rich resources of CTM maps would unbalance normal free trade worlds such as Gliese d and g. If you have any hidden caches of contraband from SHIS2 or Kaizo Caverns this is one place you can take them.
There is a chest of goodies located on the inner blue plots to get you started. They contain wood, torches, cobble, dirt, saplings, and wheat seeds. There are wheat fields located in the central canal, as well as animal pens located beneath the tree farms.
