this sounds awsome we could dig out a 4 wide gap (2 blocks each side) along the new map line and build a wall thro the water ends, have a main entrance near where the river bit is south of Mavinns and a heap of chests to put all the stuff in, or just dig out under ground and wall the top with the extract from underneath.

any iron, gold and red stone dug up could go to making a railway from near spawn, provide your own mine cart ( locker room to put your goods in b4 going in ect..)

Ah yes, I forgot that the chunks generate beyond the border and will be on the map. Such is the consequence of having invisible borders.

I like the idea of a new grid square like the mushroom biome island, but with a mix of terrain and biomes. or perhaps 2 , one for pvp survival and one for the hunger games? Can this be created on this server? and then we add a teleport network?
We certainly can have two specialised areas, but they will have to be within the border, which is all on the map.

The wall doesn't have to be completely solid - but it has to be such that people wandering around - and those who haven't seen this thread, can be made aware that there is that PVP area beyond that marked wall/border. Just digging a ditch might not be obvious enough.

So maybe pillars (3 blocks high) every 10 or so blocks, with signs every few pillars to let people know what is beyond.

If the decision is to use something obvious like end stone, we can go mining in the end to grab end stone for making the pillars....

Underground markers - I don't know.... even making the area surrounded by water - the water doesn't always go down far enough to make a visible border

Instead of a wall we place a single tree as a marker and all hide behind it. When someone strays into the PVP area we step out and say 'this isn't your lucky day'.

Bazz would just want us to put a chest there with lots in it so he can jump out while we are occupied getting stuff.

So I've started roaming, checking out some of the areas people have mentioned might be suitable.
I made it to the top NW corner, where HenriD had suggested first, bumping into invisible lines along the way and it's looking pretty good, it's much "wilder" than alot of the rest of the map, and the terrain under the tree canopy is full of interesting hills and holes and cliffs. There are also some patches of jungle here and there, and thats where my search ended, I'd made it to the top of a jungle tree, surveyed the area, fell off, lost my gear, didn't set a save point and wound up back at the hunger arena where I'd used the bed and forgot days before!... Then the server went down, and that was enough for the night for me

Be on to check out some other areas sarvo/tonight and hopefully try set a save-point in them for future

I just had a look around up there, looks perfect. But the question of how to mark it out.

Perhaps some floating words made of blocks, like a warning in the sign that can be seen from all sides plus an outline of sorts, perhaps using netherrack?

A simple fence is fine. You notice when you reach it. If you start buyilding in t he area, then you may suffer the consequences. As I suggested earlier, using unusual blocks like endstone would make it even more obvious. If you want people to easily come and go, make it a row of short pylons.

For reference, look at the border I made around the Sanctuary spawn village area for when we didn't have a border mod. That was a sand block every 5-10 squares with a torch on the left and right side, with a larger pylon on every corner. It wasn't perfect but I think it did the job. For this one, we could make them closer together if you want.
