 New Project Promotion: Ancient Egypt

PostSubject: New Project Promotion: Ancient Egypt   Fri May 11, 2012 6:48 pm

I know this isn't really about survival, but it didn't fit anywhere else.

I was wondering, If, with the help of Admins and the owner and co, that I would be able to start a mass project on Ancient Egypt. The town would be very ancient with pyramids, pre built houses to the Ancient Egypt theme and even other things that Egypt many years ago once had.

People selected would be able to live in the town, either paying rent for their home or buying it outright. Instead of a town incinerator, you dumped your stuff in a town rubbish dump. Wealthy people can buy or rent homes built for the rich and peasants could pay for their homes or work off their debts. The only water sources would be a town well which wasn't actually implemented in Ancient Egypt but i figure we cant make a Nile impersonation and also in the rich peoples homes.

Jobs would be farming great big farms, about 30 x 30 was a small size for ancient Egypt and those crops would be paid as tax every so often. Another job would be mining, a very deadly process in Egyptian times though.

Tombs will also be built. Pyramids will be built side by side with many redstone security systems to enable to safety of the sarcophagus'. If you do happen to breach the security (that wasn't implemented in Ancient Egypt either) you would see a gold, diamond or iron 1 x 2 structure with stone slabs surrounding. The door would be a piston door with minimal light inside. Objects like food and other treasured objects would be placed inside as when Egyptians lived, they believed in the afterlife.
Finally, regarding the tombs idea, they wouldn't be built for one Pharaoh as in Minecraft, you have infinite lives, they would be built as shrines to high ranked people, Like Viziers, priests, high temples and others with such significance as them.

Please, I hope that you dont overturn my proposal.

"Survival chat" refers to this server/world we're on Razz

Also, this idea sounds awesome; however, keep in mind people - unless role-playing - will not want to be peasants. They will join in on this Ancient Egyptian-styled town of yours as you build it! Of course, only you know what you're envisioning, so I only have some perspectives to offer.

As an example, I'd love to build a place for myself in the town. I think, if Towny works, you'll be able to collect taxes(?) from people who live in your town. I haven't looked at the Towny plugin before :/

Best of luck!

Thanks Guys,
The only thing im worried about is the sand supplies and the location. At the moment, the desert is absolutely chockers with buildings covering most of the sand.

Regarding the peasant idea, Peasants wont be mistreated as they were in Egypt.

Buildings, If you pay enough money, you cn get an empty plot. You would however have to build to theme. If you dont, a sign will be issued on your plot for 24 hours telling you what will happen, If no action is taken, the House will be demolished and rebuilt for you with some money refunded.

Taxes, people would pay me just for owning the land, and as they did in Ancient Egypt, Annual crop taxes would also be collected.

Thanks for the Support Guys!

I nkow that egypt wasn't built with Sandstone but its the only resource that I can use that is on Minecraft at this present time.

Richer people that live will be able to purchase logs and planks to place in their house structure. Commoners will be given 1 - 5 logs or planks every for days as a mailing system for living in The town. Some other buildings could be made of some sand but mostly dirt for really poor peasants that cannot afford sand or sandstone to bmake their homes or buy a pre built home.

Its the only way i can make it the most realistic Ancient Egypt town ever.

Thanks for your Support,
