I've had admins out at my point of access for my base at least 3 times because of griefers. I'm set up in the wilderness on smp8, the closest protected area is wilderness east base. The reason why I put my access point RIGHT NEXT to wilderness east base, is because I make a lot of mob based products at my base(s). It's a long long long minecart ride, and it's convenient to bring stuff back to a store residence by minecart. To be honest, I'd really like to bring more than just my inventory and a enderchest at a time, but I do what I can with my limitations, which is why the rail line. I can hop in, and just go for a ride while i step outside and... stretch my legs... Then come back and I just gotta teleport home, and then teleport back to the wilds, and unload the next cart, and back home, and so on and so forth... I think the biggest issue I have, is life happens, and I get busy, and I just don't have the time to come babysit my stuff in the wilds e'ery day. And next thing you know, 6 months have gone and went. Know what I mean?My access point, is merely a surface structure, usually with a hidden door to access the railline that takes me to my base. The first leg of that trip by minecart is enough to trigger your 1km achievement if you don't have it yet. I use a hidden door because I really don't feel like inviting everyone that happens to come across it down to my bases. Sadly neither of them are far enough out to qualify for outpost status. Luckily, my main one is well hidden. I think I'd probably cry if that one was located and destroyed. When I first put my access point there, it was right after a wilderness reset. It was nearly as pristine as the wilderness base still is. There were people that had built stuff, and I left it alone. It wasn't mine, I didn't build it. I may have occasionally dropped some signs that say hello, but, I don't go breaking stuff, because I hate it when it happens to me. and it always happens to me. So since I've had my access point in all stages of destruction, I was wondering what options I have available. Here are some of my thoughts on this:1. Would be nice to get build flags for the protected wilderness base area, then I could build my access point where it could not be destroyed by other players. But along with this, I think since bedrock is usually 4 blocks thick, it would be nice if I could get a nice sub bedrock tunnel running out to my bases, then nobody would be able to get into it and mess it up... But the bedrock thing might be asking a bit much, since you'd need super user access to do that. 2. How about designating an area with either bits of code, or maybe a special block when placed makes it impossible to remove anything around it (like a claim block), including the claim block if you don't own it. I know i'm asking for something kinda like a fortress claim, but in this case, it would just be a specific area say, one chunk, bedrock to sky where you could protect an access point from molestation and grief. The claim blocks maybe could be used to protect a specific area, like, 16m3, or would be nice to just have 5 blocks from top bedrock, on all the chunks the line goes through. This dimension isn't arbitrary, it's the outer dimension of my average rail line tunnel, the inside of which is 2 high, and 3 wide, but there's lights and stuff above the railway, even though the tunnel is only 2 high. I'm kinda out of ideas now, but I'm getting ready to really explore the wilderness base, to see if I can offshoot a railline somewhere that's well protected from discovery, and relatively easy to get back to without being too easily discovered. Redstone torches on hidden switches would probably work long enough to trigger a door on protected base site? although, I could make a combination lock also. That would be a massive undertaking. If the powers that be want to give me a build flag... I'll supply all my own materials. And the build flag would be temporary, just until I get it 'just so' and then you could take it away. I wonder if I could still open a chest in a protected area? I'd have to lock them obviously... Anyways, really out of ideas now. I'll check this thread later. No rush for replies. Deep thought is good too.
