Hey guys, if you have a cool idea on what the theme for spawn should be, please post and discuss here. We will gather the top three and have a vote for the best one.

Just to get the brainstorming started:

Medieval

so this is not really a whole idea but just phrase that popped into my head

"city under siege"

so we would need a rather large area for this but maybe have a wall and some siege machines on the exterior , make it look like a battle

I like the ideas there. Not so big on the texture packs, but you cant really force someone to use one. Even still, I think they will look good in the default textures. My personal favorite is the medieval, but that is only because that is what I typically build. I'm ready for a change. I think the Japanese would be interesting. Matter of fact there are semi similar to Chinese architecture, which I did a huge project on in school. I could help with what to build. I am still fine with any of the 3 themes. Though I don't like that keeping the current spawn wasn't an option in the voting.

Okay,but the photos for that Japanese-theme got me feelin' some typa' way. I think having that theme would actually be super cool (and pretty!). We could do cherry blossom trees, people!! Cherry!! Blossoms!! And the building designs are generally easier to recreate, so I think it would be something a lot of people would be able to help with! Plus, it's super pretty, sooo... ;-)

Maybe a modern city theme?

I'm with led in that a modern city theme could be neat. If not that, Roman would be cool.

I think a modern theme could look really cool, but perhaps more importantly, I think it could create a positive and cooperative environment. A modern city theme allows for easy blocks that allow for subdivision without making things look unnatural. Vertical building such as skyscrapers and townhomes allows people to build closely together in such a way where new players aren't required to build super far from the city center. A modern theme also allows for clean transport on streets and natural-looking rail lines alike.

I think it'd be pretty neat!
