So in an earlier thread we voted to make an Early Space Colonization themed server as our first server of the year, though this didn't quite happen as the ever amazing Djzman (who we will miss as he's recently left us) put up his neat fantasy-themed server Worlds of Yonder, stealing the title of first server of 2015.
However, fear not for the early space server is NOT dead in the water! This thread is being made now so that we can begin to coordinate how to construct and operate it, I'd especially like to assemble a team of people to help get it built because I feel if this is going to be of a quality worthy of the Sci-Fi Mini Builders we're going to need all the help we can get at building a massive, detailed, and pretty nice looking map (all while also trying not to lag ourselves into oblivion).
One thing we should note is that this will NOT be our next server just due to what I feel is likely to be entailed with planning and building it, so we will be going with a quicker to build server while we sort this out which you can find out about over here.
Where to begin?
Well, in the earlier thread I believe these are some of the details we had kind of concluded on or at least began to discuss:
First off I think we should figure out how we're going to build the map? I know we've already begun to have a bit of discussion about some possible styles for the asteroids, which I think the asteroid belt is definitely going to be the trickiest part because we have to be able to maintain a fair quality, ensure people can build on the asteroids, while also ensuring we maintain a fair number (not too many not too few) without also lagging ourselves into oblivion.
