ALL RAILS ARE NOW PLACED  :D

 

 

Just a couple of lines are being structurally finished but all stations are now connected by rail.

 

ENE > FNE - LadySnoogicorn (Rails Usable)

 

 

 

Many thanks to everyone that has helped and contributed to this massive project, but alas, it is still not complete.  Redstone needs to be fitted to all the stations at some point to allow player connections.

The ready for rail and lighting and structure not complete colors both look red to me, I can't tell them apart.

Hmm, the ready for rail looks orange to me :/

 

Edit: I've changed the orange to yellow, is that better?

E-SE just needs supports built. Ill get around to it at some point, but i'm a bit caught up in in a few other things both MC and RL, so nothing there until at -least- after the weekend.

I'm hacking away at ENE to FNE, it's not ready for rails or lighting yet. I'll keep you posted. :)

Oh also, am I free to do some of my lighting? I was wanting to do the lighting in my tunnels, but I don't have big plans for the lighting along the rails.

Yes if you are building the tunnel feel free to light it to fit your design.

Another idea with lighting

 

see this.  I like it

and the light never drops below 7, while with the iron pole layout it goes to 6.  time intensive to do though

I'm working on ESE-FE line and FE station. I'll make it functional with rails and temporary torch-on-dirt lighting first. I'll focus on supports later. I can't help my rebelliousness, sorry.

I have to say i don't agree with the floating glowstone. I thought the idea of these rails was no floating lines in the sky?

 

unless we're assuming that the half slab is a magnet or something.

 

I do like this style better though, and it's much less resource intensive. Win win!

It's not floating.  Imagine that it is encased in a glass enclosure that you can't see.  Given that it is a half slab distance, I don't agree with the characterization that is a floating build.  It is clearly associated with a support.  I tried connecting with two half slabs and it didn't look as good.

Thanks for the work WW, will make it easier to know what is ready for rail. And thanks to everyone who's stepped up to get them ready. I've taken a short break, will jump back on the rail laying soon.

I did a line with the "floating" half slabs out north, which I think look good. Nothing wrong with a little magnatron action IMO. It is a lot more work though, takes 3x longer to finish compared to my glass pillars!

Changes aren't permanent.
But change is.

W-SW is basically done. Tomorrow I have one tunnel to finish up there, and then I will start on SW-SSW.

 

Edit: W-SW totally done now. Ready for rail.
