Hey Dewey, for a bit there, I was wondering if you were talking about my claim on the floating island just above you and Akira's bridge (Wow, that little section of the map is getting crowded; Henri is just to the east in the snow area, too.)
All I did to claim my spot was to put torches around the island and a sign in the middle (which my building has already overtaken), so it might have not been quite as obvious a claim as it should have been had I put the torches on pillars.
I do have to warn you, your bridge will be in full view of the section of the island that I will be building my machine shop on, and will be the most visible structure, taking up the whole side of the floating island. Please warn me now if you (or Akira) have a problem with that before I start clearing the spot (I plan to intergrate with the jungle look as much as possible). I had originally planned on putting the Thaum lab over there, but I want to keep that as far from others as possible, so I moved it's planned location.
On a side note, with as many folks as we have over there, maybe we should all build a common nuclear reactor or something for all to tap power from.
Maybe even with a matter fabricator.
