  3. Highway work just east of Newspring

    The east road between Newspring and the GH market was designed and built by Ostentatio and several others, myself included. The road running north from that intersection all the way to the north coast of the island, including a massive mountain pass redesign, was rebuilt and improved be Ostentatio and several others, myself included. One day I logged on to find lamps and signs all along the east road labeled Newspring Market Highway, all planted by the GH market team, who never laid a single brick or dug a single pile of dirt to help construct it. In summary, NO section of ANY road on Newspring (except on their own deed) was built or improved by anyone from the GH team, and yet they continue to take credit for it.

  5. Highway work just east of Newspring

    I, personally, am very tired of this whole scenario, but Newspring is my home. I believe it is not unreasonable for me to be concerned when someone who does not call Newspring home steps in and attempts to claim their deed as the true Newspring market, disrupting the highway system which I and many other inhabitants built (regardless of whether it is the penultimate highway design), as well as destroying the landscape which many of us have worked to maintain. What completely dumbfounds me, however, is that even though I believe it is highly unlikely that this market deed has ever returned a profit, the owners of the deed continue to maintain and expand it. From what I have learned speaking with other Newspring inhabitants no one living on Newspring shops there, and I find it very hard to believe that the collective new players who have found their way to, or passed through, Newspring would ever have been able to spend enough coin for the deed owners to recoup their investment. If it were simply a deed someone was playing with, ie. building a home, making/growing/raising stuff, sure. But if a market isn't profitable, then what use is it?
  6. Highway work just east of Newspring

    If you will please refer to the map graphic Ostentatio posted at the beginning of this thread, I will explain exactly what Sila is planning. They have expanded over an existing highway, built by several of Newspring's inhabitants, so they can redirect the road through their market. They have built a bypass running north out of their deed and then west where it will rejoin the existing highway about 10 tiles north of the current intersection. The reason for this is obvious: they are planning on destroying a portion of the existing highway so anyone desiring to travel it must pass through their deed. When one must resort to underhanded tactics which could tarnish one's reputation in order to achieve one's personal goals, then it is very likely that those same goals are less than desirable. This is something of which I was reminded several days ago by the author of this thread. Thank you, Ost, and I hope you will accept my apology.
  7. Highway work just east of Newspring

    I live on Newspring and have maintained my deed, Aven Linuath, for nearly four years now. I am also a member of the Newspring Isle Alliance. I am posting here to go on record that I am opposed to the Glasshollow expansion on Newspring. I see it as an aggressive, hostile attempt to control all local markets on Newspring and, as evidenced by other posts here including Sila's own, all other local market areas on Xanadu, and evidently other servers as well. In my view the Newspring by Glasshollow deed is an ugly scar on Newspring, and based on Sila's plans for expansion will only continue to spread like a tumor. I invite all the inhabitants of Newspring island to voice their opinions here, as well.
  8. I've noticed lately that light sources seem entirely too bright. This was reinforced in my mind at the Christmas impalong at Blackmoor. The main imping building was blooming like a supernova from the light of the forges and the candelabra around its perimeter. This is just my opinion, of course, but forges should give off more of a dark orange glow that a bright yellow light, and candles, while bright at the flame, really shouldn't cast an extended area of illumination. I've also noticed this in caves and mines, where light sources seem to illuminate areas far too completely. Just my two cents.
  9. I assume it's the same dog. I don't recall having caged and transported another, although as I was telling Silvirwolfe earlier my short term memory seems to be shot (considering I didn't even remember posting about it).
  10. I still have the same issue I had in the original post, evidently I forgot about it. This happens on the Xanadu server. I still get the same messages. The old dog was killed by a troll on Indy, so it is obviously not tamed or caged. I have also put horses in the cage since, and I am able to tame animals on Indy, and don't see the old dog or get the Un-tame option there.
  11. Deedplanner 2.9.8 - 3D House And Deed Planner

    Thanks for the info. I never noticed the height and cave size info at the bottom. I also figured out my main problem: I didn't realize (or remember) I have to put down a floor to open a tile. Just for future reference, cave size is the height between the floor and ceiling, and height is the distance above or below water, correct? I do have another, related question. Is there a way to lower the cave size on one side of a tile so it is the same height as the floor, so as to accurately simulate the cave/mine opening? It seems to default as Cave Size 30 for all corners. Right now my openings just look like a solid cube.
  12. Deedplanner 2.9.8 - 3D House And Deed Planner

    Would you please post some instructions for raising/lowering/setting heights in the sub-layers (mines)? I've somehow managed to create a mine, and I figured out how to build in it, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to expand the open space in the mine beyond what I've already created. All insight would be greatly appreciated. :)
  13. Hi, How about adding rectangular frame openings as a wall option? Arches are great, of course, but too many arches can get tedious. It would be nice to have a rectangular opening as a design option. I've seen many people using the T-frame arch to achieve a similar look, but since the columns are set in the middle of the tile, the T-frame arch doesn't work for all situations, like the end of a long hall, or stall openings. The only other option is just not to put a wall there, and that looks unfinished. Anyone else feel the same way?

  15. Newspring starter deed voting!

    My vote definitely goes to Renate: his design definitely blends well into the area instead of being an island unto itself. While BeardedMan's design is nice, Newspring really doesn't need a huge, monolithic obstacle right in the middle of the island. Since it sits in the center of the island, the starter deed is already surrounded by mountains so putting another huge obstacle there doesn't make sense. Although the canals and docks look very nice, they also do not make sense since there is no connection to the oceans or even a large lake for them to be of any use. Ostentatio also mentioned the lack of an eastern entrance/exit to BeardedMan's design. While I agree this would make access to the starter a bit awkward, there actually is an major upside to this part of the design: newcomer access to the Glasshollow market scar on the island would be hindered! Still, all things considered, Renate's design is hand's down the best for Newspring.
