    A mission of PoC is to be involved in ongoing projects on EMC and send resources, specialists and Rupees to these projects and thereby creating great things.

    Contact us if you know a project that can use support. We will handle your request ASAP. We prefer to support public projects, but can cut deals for malls and other commercial projects.

    For a complete list of projects, please see our Project support page.

    By finishing jobs you receive points, rank up and gain extra perks. Higher ranks get their own working area, can post jobs and employ other members.

    Rules for Jobs and Rankings can be found on our Job system page.

    8 Commandments
    These guidelines help us to keep Carthaga a peaceful and safe place. Please respect them, when visiting.
    1. Respect the creations of others
    All builds, chests, animals and other items belong to their owners.

    2. Build responsible
    Builds can be put anywhere, but must be outside natural reserves.

    3. Protect the environment
    Mining and gathering of resources is allowed in designated areas and 300 blocks away from Carthaga.

    4. Keep it safe
    Outposts are fairly to very safe and must be maintained to stay this way.

    5. Make use of farms and resources in best interest
    These are not for personal gain or stocking of shops. Community storage only works if we stock it.

    6. Zero tolerance for griefing and other EMC rule violations
    If a structure got severely damaged, the Founders have to be informed immediately.

    7. Stay active
    Derelict on EMC = derelict in Carthaga.

    8. Have fun

    Open missions


    #1 Natural reserve (3 pts) -> Map (WIP by SteamboatWillie)

    The roofed forest north of Carthaga needs protection and marking as natural reserve. It should become clear that this is not a building area. For an example, please look at the flower forest or sunflower plains.

    #2 Build an efficient dark room spawner (5 pts) -> Map
    Right now it is hard for Carthaga to get hold of gunpowder, therefore we need a mob grinder. Please locate in the industrial district at the iron and sea temple farm.

    #3 Take down the active dark room spawner (3 pts) -> Map
    Located in the flower forests close to Kaizimir's house this farm doesn't work probably and needs to be taken down. Please return all items and blocks to the general storage

    #4 Build a new apartment building (6 pts) -> Map
    This is the ideal spot for a new apartment building. It should look nice and inviting and have rooms for many new members.

    #5 Very difficult job (8 pts):
    Build a whither farm or refine the one that is located close to the Netherrail station in Carthaga.
    If building a new one please consult with Suriyakeng, he knows an excellent spot already. This is a huge undertaking and you can count on all the support of PoC.


    #1R Nether Quartz
    As much as you can get; always useful


    #1O Assess gold farms (2 pts)

    AFK at the old gold farm, below the city centre and the new gold farm at the ice plains for 3x1 hour each and count the number of nuggets collected. Scientific precision required!!

    #2O List of farms and facilities (4 pts) (WIP by SteamboatWillie)

  5. People of Carthaga, we made some really nice progress on several things :):
    • We got an advanced transportation system for automatic loading and unloading of minecarts
    • An automated flower farm
    • The town wall is complete and the city is very save now
    • Roads and paving is finished

    There is now a path leading through the 'Sacred flower forest' going around the big lake (name suggestions??). Please be aware that the flower forests have received the status of nature reserve and should be entered during day time only to ensure the protection of the landscape and rare specimens.

    The center square (name suggestions??) so far only holds the announcement board. Please give some input on what you would like to see at this public spot.

    Also note, new projects have been announced in the second post after the OP. The squid farm is planned east of the Watch tower and the simple tree farm we have now is going to be replaced by an automatic redstone tree farm. Materials for this will be shipped soon.

    Thumbs up for striving towards excellent farming and automatization,

  14. Now with the flower and tree farms we have a huge demand in bone meal. I'd say we start an expedition underground to find a skeleton spawner in the area. I know of two 'natural mines' under the city, but they contain only spider spawner. A lot though, I think 8 to 10, lol.-

  16. Yes, that should be good as well. Btw, whats with the sea side grinder close to your house?
