Two things: 1) Can this thread be moved to General Discussion?
2) Is it possible to have the existing wood bridges removed - I can continue the surface roadway on the both sides and create one smaller two lane bridge (at about approx 2x16 to traverse the canal opening?)
I have settled on a lake that is connected to a larger body of water by a full canal. It looks interesting from a distance, almost like a river, but once you get up closer and more details pop in, it becomes an eyesore. There is also the issue of crossing, which is limited to a single bridge.
I agree with those posters who think that a tunnel would be better for Sklotopolis overall. It's just too easy for a canal to become a burden or an eyesore.
But I am just posting in the interest of the general discussion, and perhaps just mostly for future projects. It's clear this project is going forward as planned, so any discussion is more of a "what kind of server do we want to be playing on" type of discussion.
I wasn't going to post on here even had a chat in GL about all this but here goes starting with the quick run down of GL,
I don't like canals I hate the one down south but as I said in chat just because I don't like something doesn't make it wrong just as if someone wants to build something doesn't make it right .....
i don`t like the one down south and i made it lmao but i had no choice as the rock was far to deep to tunnel otherwise it would not have been there.unless there is another canal i don`t know about down south ofc then i didnt do it lol
My two cents that doesn't really mean anything...Fences are all well and good, but off deed they decay fast and will look trashy. The canal impeds players and spawns (even when you put in bridges). Limited access to hunting grounds is bad. Bigger problem IMO, if this goes through then what will someone do next to my deed, or better yet everyone elses deeds...this opens a can of wurms you can't put back in the can...It was my view that you can do anything on your deed and with permissions from the community other types of projects get built because of a need. It appears to me that 3-6 players really want to do this and will dismiss everyone who doesn't go along with them. It's sad that the community aspect of Sklo is breaking down this way. Good luck with your project, i hope you all follow through and finish it and make it look nice, cause if you don't...It will take a GM a long time to make repairs to the landscape...
We will see what the outcome is, everyone deserves a fair chance and Ozgod never disappointed us.
Don't forget this is a game and we are here for fun and for joy. Sklotopolis is a special place, but not the developers or the staff make this server special. The people in the community and their plans and projects make Sklotopolis to such a wonderful and great place.
I think going forward that there should be a proposal and submission review of any large scale public work - to be reviewed by the Devs but also a jury of randomly selected 'peers' who can approve/deny/make adjustments to a plan.
oh cheers pal digging a big hole in the ground is no diff than digging one through the ground .............................. but seriously here at the end of the day no one likes the same things it does not make it right or wrong imo i think it is quite a mean feat to do what you are doing and gl to you all . i find this thread is getting a bit like wo threads there was always some argument on there what i love about sklo is all the nice people the community spirit . now if the canal gets abandoned or if it makes a lot of problems or w/e lets face it the gms can fit it very easily it will not take a long time we all know it can be sorted so lets make love not war peace out all
Illegitimi non carborundum (yet some keep raising their ugly heads and it makes it hard)
Klarseth and I are building a boat tunnel now to connect our deeds, its the most creative project I have started...We will have lots of fun stuff, especially now that you can pave the mine floors and walls, build underground bridges, and buildings...Underground boat tunnels can be amazing when done with imagination! And Badgirl truly isn't basic at anything, you should check out her boat tunnels.
