I was speaking to Simon the other day about spawn. Simon, I’m gonna use your name here lol. Anyway, he had hinted at redoing the spawn area. A whole new spawn building, a new nether portal area etc.
Spawn right now, in my opinion, is still very much rough around the edges. I’m not a huge fan of the current spawn area being the way it is now. There are a lot of unfinished builds that should either be completed or removed (e.g. Massive orange and white castle behind spawn building, Chinese metro(?), library, etc). I don’t have an issue with incomplete builds when they aren’t at spawn, but seeing half-built buildings every time you go to spawn just bugs me for some reason. Spawn is the first thing new players will see (we don’t really have any new people either), so we should make it refined and consistent, right-o?
Speaking of consistency, can we agree on a theme for spawn? We have a Chinese metro station, savannah trees, 18th-century looking marketplace, and an open air spawn building. If we remember the old spawn, it was all sort of the same. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind going for an Asian-themed spawn. I know Dr. Brooke has spent lots of time and resources building the metro station, and S4xor built a nice looking pagoda behind spawn. The library could be left the way it is, and the new spawn building is (hopefully) getting a redesign of sorts. The marketplace is far away enough from spawn to be left the way it is. I think this would be a perfect time and opportunity to make these changes before it’s too late!
