Ravenport Zone Map

To keep the city looking nice, there are some guidelines that should be maintained by all builders.  You'll notice that there are not harsh requirements.  It is important the at the city look good if we want our city (and server) to grow.

  • Buildings should be limited to the plot marker, marked with gravel or wood (This boundary includes the marker itself).  These materials are a gift to the new resident and can be harvested and taken.
  • Buildings should not exceed five stories above the ground unless with good reason (such as a tower.)  
  • A buildings's exterior should be made out of at least three different materials.  I.e.:  cobble/planks/glass, logs/planks/glass, brick/wood roof/glass, etc.
  • If you would like others from different factions to be able to enter your buildings, use levers, switches and pressure plates to allow them access.  Factions does not allow the use of just doors by other factions.  This is important if you want other's to use your shops.
  • Please do not build under or over other's plots or public land.  This includes roads, walls, and parks.  Ownership of each plot goes to the bottom of the map.  Use all of it if you wish.
  • To build an industrial building, please speak with the town mayor before building.  A plot appropriate for the project size will be allotted.
  • Industrial structures are permitted within Ravenport with the following rules:
    • Redstone contraptions on a clock must have a start/stop feature.
    • Tree farming should be done toward the outskirts of town.
    • Mining should not be done under an owned plot.
    • Slime hunting and mining is permitted underground.
    • Farming should be done in the zone labeled Agricultural.
  • Just as in town, industrial buildings should not be an eyesore.  Please build with style in mind.
  • Barter signs should be limited to the inside of the buildings and outside signs should be kept to a minimum.
  • Do not build shops in other's buildings without permission.
  • Try to sell a set of goods that fits a theme.  I.e: redstone items, food, building materials, raw materials, natural items, nether goods, etc.  This will make your shop more identifiable an memorable to your customers.  General stores are allowed, but prove to be difficult to maintain.

Each resident will be required to build a house in lower Ravenport before being permitted to build one in Upper Ravenport.  This is a quality control measure for the town.  Upper Ravenport will be held to higher building standards.  Plots in Lower Ravenport will be around one chunk (16x16) while houses in upper RVN will be give an area 32x20, enough space for a house and yard/garden, etc.

All of Lower Ravenport area will be converted to grass.   Once plots are defined, anyone wanting to get started is free to do so.  Feel free to terraform your plot to grass and take the sand and sandstone for yourself.  For this reason, the city should have plenty of glass and sandstone to offer to the local economy.

Trade plots are sold by the mayor and price will be determined per per plot.  Plots granted and claimed by other factions need not overlap onto the roads to avoid factions conflicts.   

Please speak with Mattfu before constructing or modifying new portals anywhere near populated places.  Not doing so may disrupt established routes.

Wizardofire, Chewiestmonky, Antburrito, Stalin_77 and beebee766 are are authorized to work on the city of Ravenport's rail system.
