Spring City was founded on July 19th, 2017, by getplayerhead.sh?Bloodybather&16.png Bloodybather and getplayerhead.sh?Wulf_359&16.png Wulf_359. To date, there is not a specific theme we are going for, just kind of letting it develop naturally. We are a new location, so please take that into consideration if you do decide to come and visit.

Hopefully, you will enjoy what you see, and maybe even decide to be a part of Spring City, and help us grow. If you are interested, please contact Wulf_359 in game. See you there.

History

Spring City was founded because Bloody didn't like the house he built where he was at at the time, and wanted to trade back a house he had sold for donor status. The current owner was not interested in the trade, so Bloody contacted Wulf. Wulf had just recently decided to upgrade to a donor level, and was able to find and check out spots to build without the hassle of walking there. After scouting a couple of locations, the current location was decided on, and Bloody was called in for his thoughts. He agreed, and the town that was to become Spring City was born. You can see a plaque commemorating this event in the Spring City Public Park, near Billy, the town mascot.

The Fall of Bloody

Things are still a little fuzzy, but Bloodybather, one of the town's founders, was caught using a flying hack early on under another account name on MCO. The story here is confused because when questioned by getplayerhead.sh?Anna_28&16.png Anna_28, Bloody claimed that the person who did the hack was actually a friend of theirs who used the same account. Being that the previous account, which he used as well, was banned for hack use, Bloodybather's use of the account the town was founded on was considered a ban evasion, and was then banned again under that account name.

A few days later, during a time when some felt he should have been following the rules for appealing his ban, Bloody was apparently caught out again, using another account name. So once again, this new account was banned for ban evasion. Will Bloody ever be able to return to Spring City? No one is sure, but considering the original ban, and now two (known) ban evasion attempts, the chances of Bloody's return to Spring City and MCO look grim indeed.

  • Update: Bloody has gone through the process of his appeal, and the unfortunately expected result has happened. Bloodybather is no longer allowed on MCO due to the first ban, and apparently followed by many ban evasion attempts.

The Present

Spring City is a town in development, and it may look a little rough around the edges because of this. There is no set theme intended, nor will there be for as long as Wulf_359 (the co-founder) is handling management of the town. A majority of their efforts are currently being spent is on making the town accessible, with roads, streetlights, and other smaller projects being helped with immensely by the rest of the town residents, all of whom are doing much more than could be expected, to help make the town grow.

Current Projects

  • Expansion of the roads within and surrounding Spring City is a constantly ongoing project, and will likely not be finished for a long time.
  • Construction of the main building at what is hoped to become the center of Spring City was begun on August 8, 2017. Work will be slow due to the necessity of gathering supplies, and crafting them, if necessary. Any donations of sand or plain glass blocks is appreciated. Down the road, other materials will be needed, the type depending on the interior work.
    • Update - Colored blocks, not panes, of the following colors, and/or the dyes and/or the materials to make the dyes, would be a useful donation.
      • Light Grey - for the great majority of the building exterior
      • Black, Blue, Grey, and Light Blue - being used in alternating stripes on the outside of the building.
  • Consideration is underway for a public farm for use of the residents of Spring City, and possibly the rest of the people of Freedonia. I am in the process of clearing land as well, as making new paths. For the current time, please do not take on any new projects for the town. Projects currently underway are still allowed to be worked on, completed, and if necessary, modified. Just please try to keep the current borders of those projects. Because this project is anticipated to be very large size, new residents are going to have to be limited for the near future, at least until I can figure out how big this automated farm project is going to be.

Important locations

  • Spring City Public Park
    • The monument commemorating the founding of Spring City, and an actual corner 'stone' of the first building built in Spring City
    • Residence of Billy, the town mascot
    • Update. - On August 23. 2017 Billy was killed by alspal or sicroto.
  • The Holy Temple of the Magic Fish
  • Pier 86
    • This is named as a nod to Wulf_359's real-world service in the United States Navy. Pier 86 is the location of the Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space museum, located on and in the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Intrepid (CV-11) in New York City, New York, United States. This specific type of ship was picked because of Wulf's actual service on two different active aircraft carriers, U.S.S. Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69), and U.S.S. America (CV-66).
  • The main building is currently under construction, and will be completed at some point in the future. Plans are to move the builder's wall at some point from it's current location to within the main lobby of this "headquarters" of Spring City. *Update* The builders' wall has been moved and is now on the quartz level of the main building. Any new residents are asked to place a sign there when they take up residence.

The Future

The future of Spring City is being written as we make it happen. Will you be a part of that future?

Rules of the town

Server rules are in force with the addition or exception of the following:

  • Residents can place or remove any of the public torches not placed on light poles, with the exception of the torches placed on people's houses, as long as doing so does not significantly decrease the light levels during night time. They are there for the purposes of mob suppression as well as decoration.
  • Minor adjustment may be made to the edge of the existing road to make the start of a pathway to a house, or houses if built in a small sub-group. If made, this adjustment must follow the existing design and materials around the corner for at least a block or two distance. The width may be adjusted to suit the needs or wants of the people making it, as long as the width does not exceed the existing roads' dimensions of three center 'stone' blocks and 2 stairs edges on either side, 5 blocks in total.
  • All residents have permission to build in any style that they choose. If they decide to tear down the design and rebuild, that is acceptable, as long as the rebuild does not interfere with any other builds that may have been started since then.
  • As is the standard on the server, no griefing is allowed except where specified above. This includes removal or 'adjustment' of players' residences who are banned. If in the future, it becomes necessary for a build removal, it shall be done ONLY with the permission of the owner(s) of the town. The owner(s) of Spring City have final say in any issues that arise within regards to the town unless the server rules override.
  • It shouldn't have to be said, but raiding of fellow citizens' chests is frowned upon. This only applies within SC town limits.
  • Fights between contributors and residents within town limits is frowned upon, with the following exception;
    • Fights are allowed ONLY if both (or all) parties agree to the fight. If you do not wish to follow this town rule, you are welcome to leave. This is intended to allow players to focus on their builds, and not have to worry about getting sucker punched. Tapping someone just to get their attention is not considered a fight, and is not a part of this rule.

Banned Players

The following players are not allowed to be or build within the confines of Spring City. Attacking of them within town limits is acceptable.
