    Acheron Railway System [In Progress]

    Post by StootiGee on Sat Jan 22, 2011 10:20 pm

    It is happening now!
    The Acheron Underground Railway System is a work in progress! At the moment it is still in very early work, with only the station near the spawn ready. I would ask everyone to put a 5x5 X facing upwards next to their place, so I can plan which way the tracks will go.

    Information on the AURS:

    Underground hallway format:

    1111111
    1000001
    1000001
    1000001
    1101011
    1111111

    The 0s represent air, while 1 is rock. At the bottom of the hallway, there is a barrier seperating the incoming and ongoing railway tracks. For the moment, I am lining the entire length of the barrier with torches - I'll think about making it fancier later.

    Grand Central Station:
    Consists of four tracks. The East Lines and West Lines. Each Lines has two tracks, one called Line and the other called Return Line.

    Planning Method:
    Using the Minecraft Dynamic Map I will look out for the Xs and plan the route of the track. At the initial focus on the map, 4 milimetres on my screen is around 10 blocks.

    Other:
    Acheron has Minecart Mania, and I will be making full use of that.


    If anyone is willing to help that would be much appreciated.

    My place is way to far away from everything else for this. It's secluded. I wouldn't be able to find it on the map if I didn't mark it with a man-made pond thing.
