The Portal Nexus aka. Project Anubis. A top secret project established in 6 April 2011. Contracted by the government, headed by getplayerhead.sh?Zymes&16.png Zymes and getplayerhead.sh?Kiatarie&16.png Kiatarie, the Freedonia Portal Co. a wholly owned subsidiary of Freedonia Railway Co. set out to build a global portal network across Freedonia.

Due to issues with long distance travelling using trains, alternative transportation research and government funding successfully invented the world-changing portals. After numerous years of testing in underground labs, the ability to bend time and space achieving speed travel from one point to another was successful. In order to profit from the invention the idea was sold to the government, which in turn will create a wider network of railway lines across the entire world.

Project Anubis is still a project undergoing development and testing, the final goal of which is to link all Freedonia with a portal network. Although referred to collectively as Project Anubis, this is actually composed of a variety of buildings of multiple classes, positioned throughout the map.

You can find the nearest nexus to you with the /nearestnexus command. This can be helpful for other players trying to travel to you.
Command usage:

  • /nearestnexus - find out the name and distance of your nearest nexus connection.
    • /nearestnexus dest|hub|branch - choose to find the nearest destination, hub or branch.
    • /nearestnexus nexus - find the distance from the nexus given.
    • /nearestnexus list - show a colour coded list of nexus hubs and branches.
    • /nearestnexus help - show ingame command usage for /nearestnexus.

For players looking to connect their settlement to the nexus system, the settlement should have a good wiki page with an infobox on it. Nexus pads can also be used by horses, so make sure the entry pad location is horse friendly and at the least the horse can return to the nexus.


Freedonia Portal Co. is not responsible for possible brain or retina damage using our portals.

Nexus nodes

Concept sketch of network layout
View inside a nexus branch room, showing the hubs 1 through 3. Hub 1 being on the left.

There are nine main nodes, referred to as nexuses. A single central nexus is placed at the precise geometrical centre of Freedonia based on the the centre of a circle encompassing the complete distribution of player homes at the time of creation (the calculation of which position required a solution to the notorious least circle problem). Each of the other eight nexuses are located at a point precisely 2000m away, on cardinal compass directions - North, North-East, East, South-East, South, South-West, West, North-west.

Each nexus appears reminiscent of a key when seen from the air, symbolising how the Anubis Project will unlock Freedonia to the masses.

After finishing the Proto-Nexus (Nexus East) getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot started to distribute copies of the Nexus over Freedonia on the 1st of May 2011. All 8 nexuses are complete.

Secondary hubs

Each nexus aside from Central is linked to three local hubs, each of which provides onward travel options to local destinations. Hubs are designed for ongoing expansion and addition of new portals. They are also designed to be connected to local railway systems for both departures and arrivals.

Destinations

Nexus and hub colour map.

Each nexus is colour coded with a primary minecraft colour for its compass direction, based on a colour wheel concept. The nexus buildings themselves are identical, differentiated only by their coloured stripe, which makes it possible to quickly identify your nexus location.

Each hub has two stripes - the first the colour of its local nexus, and the second its own compass direction colour relative to that nexus. As a result, it is possible for an individual familiar with the colour wheel layout to quickly identify any hub visually, either from inside or from a distance.

The live map will show a orange marker at each nexus hub and info on which hub it is.

Central

  • Currently undergoing development.
    • Completion: 90%

A city is planned for construction around Central Nexus. Once the portal system opens to the public, a high level of visitor traffic is expected in the local area, and infrastructure is currently being constructed to meet that demand.

Players are able to get to Nexus Central by using the nexus pad in the Visitor Centre at spawn. Or by finding one of the nexus hubs and navigating the teleport pads back to the central hub.


Branch - North (Pink)

Although the closest feature is Casa de Austria located amidst a warmer and thawed climate, the local climate around this nexus is in fact quite frigid towards the North-West. Nestled on a developed flat beach area with a large lake, it offers a convenient location for exploration by foot! This nexus hub features a road link to the nearby Casa de Austria.

You also have a stunning view of the WoodenCastle and Yggdrasil. Following the road north will take you to the Clubhouse built by TBSliver himself!
