Community Build Idea

Post  Xacktar on Sat May 07, 2011 8:54 pm

Ok, the server seems a little quiet lately. We need some focus, some sort of community proje

How about a treehouse village?

The idea is this, we take a forrest and we build treehouses off of the trees there, with walkways or bridges connecting each house to each other or a central 'big tree' hub. We could make trees taller buy planting saplings atop existing treetops and build multiple-level monstrosities.

So, anyone interested?

I like the idea! I'll go check out the site. What do you guys think about laying down some extra saplings in the area to make sure there are plenty of trees about? That would be something pretty easy to do while we "wait". also we could mess with stacking up some of the trees to get some bigger ones going. or specific types...

Swizzy linked a video of a guy building a cathedral that shows how he built a forest of all giant trees by enclosing the sapling much like steve's treefarm. I think you can do it by just putting them inside a 2 deep box as well. It would help for a larger base with more massive trunks. I was thinking if you did something like this to have it as a large very tall forest with the sky mostly blotted out by the foliage it would be cool. You could also build platforms a few spaces high and add trunk under them after they grew to make some really tall trees.

I have a couple stacks of saplings I can donate to this project. I don't have any ideas for spiffy tree houses, though.

Best bet is to use an already forested area, add saplings all over, and let em grow.

Once grown, you van pcik yerself a spot and start working. Use wood blocks to make home made thick trees, 4 x 4 or whatever, buuilding em as tall as you want. Once u got em to the height roughly u want foliage, put dirt down inside some small holes in said home made tree and grow real trees, forming what looks like branches forming from it.

This is a great way to do em, large enough to work with, and custom made to boot Wink|

Sounds like fun to me, maybe when we pick a spot I will get a bunch of trees growing and build a "Tree farm" building as one of the first projects. Funny tree farm in a tree city.... I am a funny guy I know. Should help us when we want to build thicker trees in the long run.

Lets do this people! /Warp Ewok brings you to the central hub tree "The Great Tree" . Start building your tree homes / tree themed shtuff around her, while keeping the forest build up around it. I will be linking up nearby homes with the hub using a sky-based wooden bridge system, and hope that everyone starts doing the same from newly built / expanding homes.

In the end, perhaps we can get our ewok on! Wink
