Post Quick Guide to building in Hunger City

An area of ocean just off Hunger Island has been reserved for our latest creation. This week we have constructed the base for our new Hunger Games themed City.

As this is an area for community events we need to be fairly strict with the rules.

Do not mine Hunger Island for resources or build anything on it.

The City is for Hunger Games. Build with that in mind.

All Hunger Island rules apply to Hunger City. The rules are posted at the Cornucopia.

What is a Cornucopia ? Watch a Hunger Games video.

Most blocks are 32x32, but buildings no larger than 24x24 with 3 blocks around the outside being roadway.

If you reserve a block, use it or lose it.

The outer perimeter (3 deep) of all city blocks should be half slab cobble unless we have another need. This makes most streets 6 wide, with a section of the main road 8 wide.

No blocks should be damaged during Hunger Games events, but may be occasional creeper damage.

Constructions should be urban / industrial / steampunk / modern.

There are a few larger blocks up to 48x48, and also leave the outer 3 blocks for half slab roadway.

Please watch one of the Minecraft Hunger games videos before deciding if you wish to build in the City. The Celebrity Hunger Games II features a similar concept.

The main purpose of building the city is to host PvP events, but standard frontier rules apply at other times. No TNT.

All buildings are community property and may be altered as required.

Any resources you use on Hunger City become community property.

If you do not agree that buildings in Hunger City will be community property, do not build there.

Do not place your permanent bed or permanent chests in Hunger City.

Players will be asked to read this post before starting construction.

The main thing is have fun The Admins and Architects are here to assist.

So I gather key aspects are that
  • you want a couple of ways to get up to each level in a building, but they needn't be obvious
  • dark places are good intermixed with light places
  • not everything needs to be "intact", as in look like a completed building
Can people work on streetscapes? e.g. streetlamps, bridges, trees, seats. Some of these may impact the size of some city blocks.

Yes players are encouraged to go wild and not restricted to just one block, take 2 or 3 in different areas of town. There are over 50 blocks available and room for expansion. Have some completely open. parks, swing sets, hedges, cars, theatres, Hungry Jacks, whatever you like.

Absolutely the more content we put into streets the better as they will be prominent in the game videos and will showcase our TOG talents.

Build up, down, under water, subways, monorails....

Areas you put a lot of effort into, light them up to keep those creepers away.... BOOM

I'll be working down the cheaper end of town

Hmm. Perhaps a small gerbil pawn shop.

Perhaps. But better than having an unhealthy obsession with unhealthy gerbils I suppose.

I'm not up to date with all posts in this forum; is there a map or something that illustrates where this city is?

Yes, there appears to be one here.

It has the annotation:
"Last edited by Sorontar; 6th May 2012 at 02:42 AM. Reason: new image",
so I'm guessing the location is accurate.

It is right next to the Hunger Games island. It will be visible on the map tomorrow.
See the sticky Our Worlds - servers, maps, claims, downloads
As pointed out in the thread that Rhof pointed to, the logos of framed paintings that are visible by default on the maps pinpoint some major community landmarks. Clicking on the logo will give you an image with the title of the area below the image (you'll have to scroll down). Hopefully I added one for the city in time.
