 I am requesting a small portal ship for SmallVilla.

I checked the live map and I can see that, via rivers, there is access to the ocean.  I can widen one of those paths a bit if needed.  And I plan to dig out the swamp floor a bit to add more water depth.

 

On the Vetropolis side, I am hoping the ship can be relatively close to Spawn, as my idea is to sway newbies there to hang out until the get the feel of the server.  (Also some free items for those too eager to build their own wood axe or leather armor)  (Aka:  free stuff is fishing loot and food items)

 

Other than the fact I think I need to extend the sail up another two blocks, this is my finished design.

Thanks.

Please provide the following.

  • Live map link of your portal ship location.
  • Live map link of your preferred vacant dock.

You will also need to fix the portal dais. It must be three by three, flat, and unobstructed. You've placed half slabs covering a portion, and it's not all on the same Y axis.

In addition, I suggest that you remove the cookie dispenser and signs. You will not be granted permissions at the Vetropolis version, it's best to place these things just off the ship once you arrive in SmallVilla.

On an unrelated note, please fix this coastline so it looks a tad more natural, or border it with an appropriate material to give the illusion of a shoring.

Cheers,

Anthony Hughes

Aw, no signs?

Then how do people know they want to go there?

Ok, hopefully I am doing this correctly now.  That'll teach me to post something like that after I've taken my Ambien (I felt fine...really.  Really.)

 

I was hoping to provide screen shots of Live Map, but that didn't work out too well (there must be a way to do it, I know.)

Location of the ship in my harbor is:  -4194, 2829  http://maps.veterancraft.net/?.....0000000005

 

Preferred Vetropolis location based on looking at Live Map (meaning, there might not actually be room -- it depends on your process):

Choices (I can't get Live Map to load properly for me to do links/find location.  Getting big black boxes.  Happens a lot.)

These are basically on the first pier area.

(1) 7, 752

(2) 29, 757

(3) 4, 719

 

I have fixed the issues with the portal and signs.

(Still kinda sad about that. Wouldn't people appreciate a cookie on their journey?  Seriously, though, with all the ships available, how do people know which to choose if there is no info about the destination provided on the Vetropolis end?  Perhaps some kind of information center -- which ship owners could place no more than, say 2-3 connecting signs plugging their place and ship?)

 

As far as the surrounding terrain on my end:  Perhaps I am jumping the gun on the way you guys like to do things.  The terrain is unfinished due to:

(a) planning to dig out some water depth

(b) plans to build a lighthouse

(c) plans to build a marina

Edited to add:  I went ahead and put in the request now because:

(1) I have the money

(2) Several times people have asked me how to get to [insert my place or place nearby] and it seems easier to be able to send them to my ship.

(3) I was in the mood to build a little ship.

 

It looks unnatural now, cause I was just framing out where I want things to go.  I also have to extend my property a bit, and I think it means I am going to have to add an area (which would then mean, I think, that I have to re-res my Island home, because I did it stupidly and used up a bunch of areas -- I think.)

But yes, I plan to make it look more natural with a boardwalk, sand, grasses, etc.

Awaiting final approval.

I am in the process of building the marina and making the shoreline pretty and natural looking. Then I will post again.

Obviously, VC prefers the area to look finished (or natural?) before approving a ship.

The items on the ship itself have been removed.

Approved and all set. I've taken the liberty of setting up the glow stone selection points, since I neglected to mention that in my other post.

I don't know how this officially works, so please forgive me if this is an inappropriate request.

If possible, Id like to have the spot that is being used by a seemingly-abandoned build.

On the first pier (closest to spawn/bank) is a small aqua/teal & white ship.  It is located at -35, 749

It is not labeled on the Vetropolis side, and once you take the portal you go to a small island res-d as "Harmony."

However, there is absolutely no build on Harmony at all.  So, unless I am simply unfamiliar with the place, it appears to be abandoned before they even built.

If this is an old ship, since mine is about the same size, I would like to have this dock spot if possible.

 

My main reason for this request is:

I am hopeful that my city will be a help to Newbies.  Therefore, I would like it to be quickly and easily accessible from spawn.

Portal Ship installed and activated. I put the ship at your last location choice.
