One suggestion may be to make a ditch either side of the tracks. Spiders might still be an issue, but are rare. Not sure whether mobs can spawn on the tracks.

I've tried to map out the train lines based on 16x16 chunks and where peoples builds (that I know of) are. The idea is to make it as easy as possible for people to link up their builds.

I wasn't sure the best program to use so I've put it in Excel (the grid made it easier to map the chunks) for now.

Attached is the Excel spread sheet and a screenshot of the spread sheet zoomed out all the way.

If someone has a better way of mapping this out (better app or format that makes it easier to view) I've included a text file of the coordinates of the rail lines and builds I've found so far today.



Edit: Unfortunately the grid I made didn't put North Up so it's different to any other maps people have done.

Edit #2: I also may have got the line directions wrong (North, South etc) because they aren't labelled at Grand Central but that's easily fixed. The only one I'm sure about is the West Line, so I might just have North and South mixed up (which means North is actually UP)

Yes, they can spawn on the block under the rails.



Thanks for the info, Akira. That'll help immensely in linking up.

**EDIT**

I was thinking of taking this route here, in red. The Yellow circles are the places I know people have built so far, and I want to check with others to make sure I won't step on toes if I build along the proposed route.



The shorter Z coordinate would be going north to 1059, then along the X axis to Akira's farm/Gasman's area.

There is an intersection nearby on the dessert island (see the little red arrow). I can't figure out which way the lines run from there but essentially it where mine and kitty's lines meet.

Hoathy, when you're on next can we go explore that intersection in the desert? It's quite close to me (SE of the desert) and if there are rails there, maybe I could link over there?

Yeah no worries. Just grab me when I pop on, occasionally I'm only in momentarily so just jump up and down and shout.

P.S. I'll only show you if you have a game of Spleef with someone (anyone) and send me the result. Free cake at the arena for anyone who participates

P.P.S. It's a hollow threat, I'll show you anyway. But seriously, free cake!

For the record, Akira's map is slightly backwards (as we found out). North is down, and the west line should be pointing the other way.

Working on a new version after Akira's help connecting me to an interchange on West; +1 diamonds of thanks.

Hoath: I figured out I am way super far from you... never mind the above.
