First, a little bit of context to make everything clear.

- Commander and Dart Lobrik's LDT Minecraft server is almost ready to launch
- I've been helping building the spawncity in Creative mode, but once it is launched, the server will be Survival-only

What I thought:

1) It's a shame only the spawncity is built in Creative, it might be the only impressive sight on the whole server since no one will have access to Creative.
2) Continuing from one, the server population would enjoy seeing new impressive places being built within or out of the spawncity.
3) Continuing from two, that might make the server less boring in the long term and make players want to check back occasionally.

My idea:

Let the Admins make some people be able to build in the world like in Creative, people who are willing to spend time at it, and who are not too bad at it either.

But what kind of building, exactly?

Anything too impressive to be made in a reasonable time in Survival, and interesting enough to be built in the first place. That could be: monuments, artificial lakes, mountains, caves, ruins, remaking a memorable place from a video game, or a film, whatever; everything could be made.

However, there are a few questions we need to answer: should the server population decide what should be built, or should the admins decide? Should anyone be able to propose a building to be added in Creative mode, or a few?

Thoughts pls.

Giving people creative is a stupid idea and people who build bad buildings shouldnt be prosecuted. Makes survival meaningless. Spawn cities are also silly :L

Not anyone should be allowed to do it, that's for sure, and that's what I intended. "Bad buildings"? Like I said, the building ideas should be approved by either the Admins, or the server population. It is all very strict. And it has nothing to do with Survival, it's about making the server world more interesting for the players.

@Blackheart: no idea, I'll check the forums.

Edit: I don't see anything about it.

Well we had a server that people were building a spawn city in and then they either abused those rights to build or some shit went down, I can't recall specifics.

What do you have against spawn cities? :/

Every good Minecraft server has one nowadays.

And it's not about people getting Creative mode in Survival, that doesn't matter. Those people are only tools, for the making of approved buildings. We're not letting anyone play on the server with Creative mode and doing whatever he wants.

Why not have a survival world and a creative world coexist with a portal inbetween?

About a spawn city, if people can have their own plots and actually live there then yes. Otherwise it's pretty useless IMO. Empty buildings that have no function other than being pretty are pointless.

LDT is LDT.

We wanted to do this (also for the vanilla people a separate world) but multiverse bugs really hard with a lot of mods we have and I cant find another mod with the portal stuff. >.<

Well the houses / buildings we have now are empty but I really like that idea ( i.e. having some plots for sale @ the spawn city with economy money )

Against. I like the idea, but abusing is innevitable, and we have our hands full already cant afford to care about that stuff too

Spawn cities which are built with resources gathered by you and your friends are always better than ones made in creative

What do you mean, better? It's better if you actually make the building nice-looking without having to spend 10 hours gathering resources.

@Dart: there won't be any abuse if we're careful about it. You don't have to make anyone "builder" on demand.

If it's so fun and rewarding, we'll see if you build those kinds of things. Try building a museum like mine and we'll see.

You're still free to make your own things, I'm just thinking we could speed up the process for really important constructions.

We built the lucky 38 on the other tekkit server, without creative.
Don't have a pic of the finished thing.

Hot damn...

I don't support this though. Tekkit makes it much easier to make huge buildings.

Tekkit also adds 9001 blocks which allow you to build nicer.
like microblocks.

Miicro blocks are the savior of people who need to have something look nice or have their eyes bleed like me.

Too bad that micro blocks are not up to date
