SMP5 MegaRail (Eastern Line Project)

  1. Hello, SMP5 Frontier neighbors!

    I'm trying to establish an outpost (waiting on staff approval) on SMP5 at 16646, -4439. I would like to run a minecart rail from my outpost back to the nearest frontier spawn at 10656, -126.

    I understand it's a big task. Looking at the numbers, if I build my typical style of rail line I'm looking at a minimum of:

    Cobblestone: 23,358
    Iron: 123,636
    Logs: 2,835
    Gold: 12,384
    Redstone: 2,064

    That doesn't include the wood and iron to mine the raw materials or the coal to smelt it all. I'm also not entirely certain I can track down the owners of all the plots between me and that spawn point, but I'm willing to try!

    I'm happy to build above ground or tunnel under or through. This task would also mean we'd essentially build point-to-point rail stations, thus possibly connecting multiple empires and establishing a trade route/turnpike. It still beats the heck out of swimming or boating over that distance.

    Also, if someone with an empire near mine is interesting in making a rail connection, I'd be happy to work with you. We could establish Right-of-Way Treaties.
  2. Sorry not in my neighborhood, but good luck.
  3. Considering I'm 10 mins by high-speed boat from the nearest spawn you're probably not along the line of coordinates. Probably no one is, but I want to respect people's airspace.
