Hello folks,

If you go through the portal to the West coast...and then walk directly west (next to stone mountain) you'll see I have claimed a spot of land.

My plan it to make this a subway entrance to go to my future city (NW of this site).  However, I feel it would be rude to not suggest that all of us in this area combine our efforts and use this site as the main starting point for a subway entrance.

We can make our own tunnels to our own towns...but simply use this main entrance (and perhaps collaborate on a design if you like).

 

With res tp going away, it seems like it might be a practical solution to telling people how to get to our city:  "West Portal...head west for one minute...then enter the subway to my place!"

 

I have included a screenshot to show the coordinates, etc.

 

Thoughts?

I can grant perms to build at the entrance area as people respond.

I would actually love to build my own track from this subway entrance, considering my city/claim is directly north from it. However I want to make sure others are participating before I engage myself into this.

Do you want perms just in case?

It would be you and me at minimum...

Hey again,

I created a main entrance for the subway.  A few people have shown interest, but haven't wanted to commit yet (which is fine).

I just want to enforce that I am not selling perms or anything...not trying to keep any of this for just me.  I simply wanted to create a main station.  So there is no charges, any ores you find when you are digging/building your track are yours, etc.

 

What I have done so far is simply suggest that each track uses only certain level(s) so we don't risk overlapping our tracks.

 

If anyone wants perms so they can build, let me know.

It should be an easy station to find from the West Compass ship port.

I'm so far west I'm not sure it's feasible for me to build a track.

I'll tell you, I've been all about this since I came out west to settle, but I didn't know it was you who set it up or I'd have said something sooner. I've been working on a 3-rail station under my place. The red line already exists between my main place and a logging outpost. The yellow line is what I imagine a connection to the collaborative subway entrance would be like. The blue rail isn't started yet, and I'm not sure where it will go. 

I realize this project was proposed almost a year ago, but I'd like to get in on it.

I would be interested to join this project! 

Ravenshagh is fairly close aswell? Maybe he wants to join.

I've got a tunnel ~90% there, ready to link up, but I don't want to get any closer unless I have your official permission to link up. It uses the levels described for "Tunnel 1" at the hub. There's a bend at the final stretch of tunnel to the hub that would be perfect for building straight to Ted's place like the map above.

Update on the project. 

Image 1: Maria has renovated the main hub of the West Side Subway Route, which can now be easily seen on the live map as the red "S" directly to the west of the west portal ship. I'm not sure if the admin claims around the portals are ever touched, but if that's an option with admin help, a path toward the subway would be fantastic for new users finding their way. 

Image 2: Track One extends from the station to my mountain fortress along the yellow line, and the preliminary tunnel has been mined which will be switchable to travel north when expanded to Ted's Blue City. The preliminary tunnel travels a little further north after the bend to Ted's, for further linking.

Image 3: Track Two is a complete link to the city of Orthon, owned by NG and Noah, and inhabited by a number of players. This is a great way to direct new players looking for a town to build in, further away from the main portals. 

Image 4: This is my current project that will be coming along a little more slowly than the past tunnels, which will link Orthon to the giant mushroom island off the coast, inhabited by Magesh1.

In other developments, Maria has started working with Track Four, and Track Three remains vacant. I've asked a few of the redstone masters if they'd be interested in helping with the station, so hopefully we can implement one of the innovative minecart systems to ensure every visitor can catch a ride, and we won't get tunnels clogged with empty carts. 

There's also some interesting talk of a subway route starting in the south, as well as scenic, raised-rails.

I'll include some screenshots of the finished routes and stations soon.

I'd like to contribute to this railway and also connect my tunnel to it as well, I am clearing the necessary land to get a station started within my build. I have a couple of ideas as for as a station goes but will need help in developing a gameplan to connect the tunnels in good areas.2015-07-22_2241.pngImage Enlarger

When you ask for happiness and a beautiful life, ask not just for you, but for everyone. When you ask for something better, ask not just for you, but for everyone. By all means ask for abundance and health for you, but also ask for it to be given to everyone. Can you imagine what would happen if six billion people asked for these things for you? :)

Just so you are aware, there is already a tunnel at level 20 that runs from Rang's, Okamat/Braleth's claims all the way to Axy's, Frank's and my claims. (Via New Glacia, where there is an entrance ;) )
There is no rail network yet, but frank has suggested it to me.
Thought you already knew about this Hon ?

And a few more I believe, although I don't recall all of the names, SmellyTramp is connected too. I've thought about it a few times: we should probably grab the co-ords for the major junctions as well as the entrances/exits and slap together a map of where the tunnels are located. I'm sure most of the current players have no idea it exists.

As far as rail lines go, I have started laying track from our entrance/exit point. I've only done a few hundred blocks of track so far (we're 3K-4K blocks from the first intersection) as it's a pita and not the most exciting build/project.

I know there is a tunnel system Axy started but I have no clue as to how far it goes from his builds as I have yet to travel his network, also as Axymoron hasn't been seen for a couple of months, I'd be hard-pressed to ask him at which intersection I should build at to connect our networks.

Also, in the interest of laying rails down, I have a lot of iron blocks stacked and building up gold for a rail system as well as clearing a good section of land for the subway station. I am not very good at redstone yet but I am making great strides in my learnings and will be implementing those designs as soon as the land has been cleared.2015-07-23_1610.pngImage Enlarger

Ok here's a map of our end of New Glacia tunnel that's connected to Braleth, okamat, Rang and others.

Which would be better? I can accommodate both, but for planning purposes, which would be better to set up?2015-07-23_1641.pngImage Enlarger

I would say Option 1, as long as no other players have claims in the way, because Option 2 would take you into Axy's claim ;)

 

And just a side note, for some reason Axy only dug down to level 32 at the junction where Frank and my tunnel meets Axy's ;)

No one else has builds this far south so I am good in that area, As far as the intersection goes, is that protected or no?

No there's no GP at the junction.

Created a design for a switching station and just added it.  I'll try and setup a post about how to make it so it can be replicated as needed by others.
