Project Report - Codename Iron & Emeralds
Function: Iron Farm + Auto-Villager shops
Staus: Analysis, research and design finished. Testing has been done in an optimized environment. Implementation pending.
Size: 34x34x4 approx.
Location: Still pending. South of the church against the wall, "quarry area" is far enough from Morpheus town and everything else. Might be inconveniently far though.
Needed Materials: 600 blocks of any suitable, non-fugly building material. 76 doors, aka 456 blocks of planks. Other materials in insignificant numbers. A significant amount of rails, although these are only for temporary use.
Budget: Various sorts of stone usable as building material in ample supply. Wood stocks completely empty, must be provided by server denizens.
Concerns: Villager noises coming in next patch. Noise level may become extreme within 16 blocks of the farm. Any villagers gotten lose in Snafu Town during transit or due to player incompetence may turn whole town into village, ruining farm. Should be fixable by removing all doors, but this is theoretical and would still be a major undertaking.
Dangers: Zombie invasion mechanics still not well understood, may be necessary to keep village separate from town, to avoid zombies spawning in town.
Building Time: Low, provided the necessary materials are provided and transit of the two first villagers (codename: Adam and Steve) is do-able. Two days worth of somewhat intensive minecraft play approx.
TL;DR if you want that iron farm, somebody needs to give me around 7 stacks of planks. And if someone can borrow me a lot of rails, that'd be nice too.
