Default Building of the "TOGosseum"

This is what you get when Bazz and I go "hey, lets pick a spot and build a PvP arena (It's not finished yet, but I thought I'd post pics)

First off we picked a spot that looked reasonable... close to spawn (so the walk back when you die in combat isn't too long)... and large enough. So then we set about marking out a 40x40 square.... which we later found was too big (remove blocks), then not big enough (add more), then not big enough again (add more)... and so on

The plan is that the floor is cobblestone with a layer of sand on top, which can be removed and snow put down for snowball fights... or maybe flooded for boats etc.

Then we set about testing some designs for the stadium seating section... while the cobblestone floor layer was added.



With the help of many generous souls, the arena ("TOGosseum") began to take shape...



















Made more challenging by the spawning of mobs inside!



... and we've connected it to the Fortress with another Sky Road (in keeping with the modifications I made to the existing skyroad).... which fits the theme of the arches in the TOGosseum... (not yet finished either - ran out of fences!)



More pics:

If you come to visit, be aware that it's not well lit enough to prevent mobs - particularly on the top of the levels... and PvP is enabled, though we're not supposed to be attacking people there until it's finished being built :P So if someone runs at you with an axe in hand, be afraid.... and don't teleport to someone and get your head placed between someone's pick and the block they were smashing (right Manuzza )

very impressive. If I had known I would have at least contributed some cobblestone.

yep - TOGosseum's however are renowned for their hip and groovy squareness.

Last night was the first time I got involved in a large community project like that, and I had a ball - very cool when everyone jumps in to get the work done - heck look what we all did in a single night!

Special thanks to the miners - and found you a sign for the mines:

yeah I turned it off after accidentally killing yourmum yesterday
I can turn it back on again tonight.
the border is a little dodgy, so we may need some extensive testing.

We figured making a border so the arena floor was PvP but the spectator seating wasn't, would be easier to do in a square arena than a round one.... plus, several people have made round collosseums, so that's so passť !

well we still have to put in the walkway levels, and the outside walls (which I'm thinking might need large windows to let light in)..... so there is still work to be done We're desperately in need of torches too
