The only suggestion i have for this, since i'm not a big fan of the idea in the first place, is to call it "Vetronia (or Veterancraft) Spleef League," mainly because most sports associations don't put the -ing suffix in their name. Is the NFL the "National Footballing League?" Nope. :p

Well, there's one change then... VSL {Vetronia Spleef League} newish name, same letters and I'm over posting again... sorry.

If I've learned anything over the years... It's that things come and go, but in the end you always return to the beginning eventually... Even if you find it to be filled with disgust and agony, it's a place that is yours and /can/ be repaired... If you have the right tools, that is... Happy Trails...

for your first post dramatic, i think that the HQ would need to have 3 things.

 

1. a couple training arenas. i dont know how, but maybe find a way of allowing people to practice the various parts of spleef without paying.

 

2. a main spleef arean. this would have to be a massive spleef arena that is 3 or 4 time the size of the one at spawn but would really not be used for 1v1s.

 

3. a leaderboard/member board. it would have the teams in the league or at least the ones playing that season* and have a tournement tree showing who is playing who.

 

and maybe have space to put the flags of each city/city-state/town/village that has joined the league.

 

tall order but you asked what was needed.

 

second, i am glad that i brought traffic to this page again. it would be sad to see this idea die.

 

third, i want to just check how many city owners would be willing to make a team for this and even an arena in their town. while i think this is a good idea i dont want to push an idea no one else wants

I am close to half-way done with the one of the ideas I have for the HQ, its main building is more like an entrance that rises high up to a large, almost 3D, oval that will contain the leader board, teams, flags, and tournament tree. In the back I decided for the first idea that the practice spleef areas would be outside for people to watch from the outside teams practice {There are three practice spleef fields that are already larger than the one at spawn and contains water below them, snow on top, and doors on the bottom so if you lose and fall in you can exit and reset to practice again. Behind the practice areas are little "locker rooms" and an equipment area for teams to store items and restock. I plan to place the much larger spleef arena for either all of the games {Depending on how many cities decide to have one} or just the semi-finals either behind the practice area, supported high up to be level and accessed by the leader board/tournament tree area, or below the HQ. The main spleef arena will be made of obsidian {Much like all the others for style and safety} and contain lava rather than water so if you fall in you lose and don't get that chance to exit through the bottom and leave. I also want to make sure that any items that fall off of them doesn't get burned, so water below the lava, but if you fall in you must kill yourself no matter what since there will be no way out. 

That's the update for now, will have pictures up of the first HQ idea some time soon.

just saying, the main spleef arena would be the only one that would have the plugin(once it becomes an option for people to buy them.) so that will make the lava more of just an astetic/ sccary thing for during any spleef arena. but other than that it sounds like you have covered everything i would love to see the work youve done so we can giove better feedback.

I shall post the images of the HQ tomorrow night around 5:00 PM EST and shall be working on the HQ all through tonight. It's coming along all right, I shall also include a few images of the incomplete basis for the city spleef arenas {Two viewing stands incomplete and outer walls/celling to complete}

Here's a small sneak peak at the HQ and the spleef arena: First up is the practice area {Partly done, no floor and needs improved locker rooms and fencing}, after that is the half done spleef arena.

Went through the configuration options of SimpleSpleef and if I get it right it should be possible to set a different entry fee, perhaps even nullify it, and set a lack of item rewards for training arenas. Multi-layered arenas with safe zones and obstacles are all possible, as well as different spawning zones for the two teams of a teammatch. There's also block degradation where you can't stand still too long, a timeout option and regenerating block options, all three of which can be used to combat islanding.

now does that setting of the fee work for each arena seperatly , or for all. i assume the first. as for the spawning zones, that would be cool to have a team spawn in their color box. i think ill take a look at that myself

My assumption, since config files also include spawnspots, are that each arena gets its own config file and thus can have different prices. I am not sure though.

Here are the pictures of this concept for the VSLHQ minus the main spleef arena which I will make in a separate area to show what it shall look like and then we can input it later. Also, gunnerling, I shall email you the specs for the area after I post this

ok, this is kind of freaking awesome. i especially love what you did with the tournament tree. my only concern is the pendent size but that is not a big deal at all. glad to see this is really comming along. it almost seems like we're racing frelling to weather this will be done first or the server will be updated first. awesome timming to push a concept like this eh?

Agreed, perfect timing and it is a bit like a race in a way. Also the pendent/flag sizes were for show and thrown on there for the pictures and stuff so it'll change depending and if it still doesn't fit I can always make it so both the walls are the members and the champion's wall is placed somewhere else.

Also, you should have gotten my email about the specs so you can get the building started while I work on more spleefing things in my single-player.

 

Can't wait for this to get started on the server! Smile

He's talking about the VSLHQ building contest, Nexus. Don't put a stupid little post like that again! Edr thought you meant with the HQ.
