History

A New Beginning

When getplayerhead.sh?Xircila&16.png Xircila started out on the server, she had one dream: to start her own town. After announcing her plans to see if any others were interested, she came across getplayerhead.sh?legolopi12345&16.png legolopi12345, who eagerly wanted to help. She looked on the online server map for a location, looking towards the southern side. After searching for a while, she found a mesa biome. The duo traveled to the location, trying to stick together. They discussed town name plans, and getplayerhead.sh?Xircila&16.png Xircila had two ideas: Charmville, inspired by the nickname of her second-favorite city (Baltimore), and Novatown, inspired by her love of space. They settled on Novatown. After failing at sticking together during the 7,000 block journey to the site, getplayerhead.sh?Xircila&16.png Xircila made it first, and started to make plans for the visitor center. Soon, getplayerhead.sh?Xircila&16.png Xircila finally built it. It wasn't furnished, but it is the first building in Novatown and now declares it is open for new residents.

First Things

Soon after building the welcome center, getplayerhead.sh?treepuncher755&16.png treepuncher755 magically appeared in the town. He proceeded to donate much-needed supplies, including iron, diamonds, and tons and tons of spruce wood. Soon after, getplayerhead.sh?Xircila&16.png Xircila built the Novatown community mine, which lead straight into a cave. Coal was mined, cobblestone was smelted, slabs were crafted, and soon the roads and a future site for a Nexus portal room were all constructed. getplayerhead.sh?legolopi12345&16.png legolopi12345 went ahead and built a garden by the visitor center, added the public jukebox, the board of residents, the public farm, and the public smeltery.

After some mysterious player-teleporting activity, getplayerhead.sh?Jatopia&16.png Jatopia became the first resident of Novatown.

Development

getplayerhead.sh?legolopi12345&16.png legolopi12345 continued building and welcoming new residents. Before long, it looked like a developed town. Annoyed at the inevidable lag, getplayerhead.sh?Xircila&16.png Xircila became less active on the server, but still checks in every once in a while to see how the town is doing. What will happen next? Who knows?


Rules of Novatown

Novatown is completely public for anyone to come and build their home, shop, or public facility. However, we ask for all residents to follow a few simple rules.

  • No ugly buildings, please. If you build an ugly building, for example, a cobblestone box, you may leave a sign outside asking for it to be made nicer and the building "team" will fix it up.
  • When building, please leave a 3-or-more block gap between your building and anyone else's unless they gave you special permission.
  • Do not intrude your building on to the city roads without permission.
  • Except under certain circumstances, we do not allow the construction of:
    • Animal pens (unless it's for horses)
    • Overly huge mansions
    • Large gardens
    • Farms that aren't well concealed in some way (there's this thing called Shypixel Farms)


Hall of Fame

getplayerhead.sh?Jatopia&16.png Jatopia was the first resident of Novatown.

getplayerhead.sh?treepuncher755&16.png treepuncher755 was the first ever visitor to Novatown and donated many supplies.


Location

Novatown is located far South, about a 6,500 block walk/swim from the nearest warp, Vizima, and a 1,600 block walk/swim from the nearest Nexus destination, New Louisville. One day, we hope to get a better, faster method of transportation, such as our own Nexus portal.
