Salutations Netizens of Miranda,
Tomorrow, November 15th marks yet another yearly anniversary for Miranda. Two years have gone by, so I think it's time to get some more community interactive things going.
I'm calling for contractors to build attractions, games, and PvP arenas in Miranda! We need something to get everyone together and interacting with each other. As a bit of celebration for this anniversary and to entice players to get building: Starting tomorrow, the 15th, the flight shrine at spawn will be ENABLED until the end of November. For new players as a reminder, the flight shrine is stationed at the northwest of spawn and is normally active during Contractor's Evening on Wednesdays at 6PM EST. This grants flight until you disconnect or the end of the night.
Players that decide to build during this time and inform me of their intended build/function, will also gain the Contractor rank, and with it access to Ouroboros, the creative planning server. This will help those who choose to plan out their build better without requiring single player, etc. After choosing your destination and beginning your build, contact Unknown_Entity for nether connections.
I will also be taking submissions for the start of the overworld rail system, similar to what you've seen in Laurasia and Rodinia. You can build smaller mockups in Ouroboros and present your ideas as well. Whoever is chosen to build the main rail station, upon completion, will be rewarded a game or DLC on Steam up to $10. Teams are allowed as well, and thusly will be awarded the same to each builder. You will only be required to design and build the main building, providing sufficient endpoints, and the possibility to be expanded. You are not required to run any actual rails.
This may seem like a cop-out to get others to do the work, but I want to involve the community. So instead of designing and building it myself, I want the builds to come from the players. Alongside the request for arenas, games, and attractions, I ask players build around spawn, or make other cities. Shape the world as you all see fit.
There's plenty of areas to spread out and develop the world, so please take this opportunity to get your creativeness going and build something spectacular.
