Disclaimer: This is not required but recommended.
We should do a server-wide building addressing system!
The address should take up maximum of two lines on a sign.
To make the address, take the X and Z pieces of the building main enterance coordinates. For example, Flower Isles’s community mining quarters building is near x=132 and z=-683. Take those two numbers, and divide them by ten. (e.g. drop the last number):
x = +130 => +13
z = -683 => -68
If your x coordinate is positive, then you can drop the plus sign. Then put the numbers together. The building address then becomes 13-68. If the x coordinate was negative and the z coordinate was positive, then that can be written as “-13+68”.
Next, if the building is in a town or is a part of a town, city, or a nation, take the name and append it to the building number. Then it becomes 13-68 Flower Isles. You can make it something like this:
If you want to write your address in one line, then use your shortened town/city/nation name and use it in place of the full name like this: 13-68 Flower Is. Anything is fine as long as the settlement name is recognizable.
We should make this a standard. What do you think?
