In Progress Project Application: Maidenpool

Furthermore, the reasons for redo were, I felt, more extensive than changing some walls. I outlined canonical discrepancies in my redo application, which you can read through on the original thread.

Edit; just read my own redo appeal and saw the walls aren’t actually mentioned, which makes the above post even more misplaced.

Last I heard, though Veggie can confirm, the pink blocks were still being fine-tuned which is why they have yet to be fully implemented.


Just to reiterate,

This is indeed the case - The pink block set is still a work in progress, as it is being used throughout the central Riverlands including at Riverrun, which is still in the early stages of planning. With Christmas and the pandemic, we've not had a chance to complete a happy medium yet, to a level we'd want to share and implement on the whole server. The redo of Maidenpool was voted upon and agreed by the mod team as meeting the requirements outlined by the redo appeal, and as Veggie has said - the colour was a secondary decision to implement (without restrictions on specific block usage), not the principal reason to approve the redo of the project.

Kind of related with the discussion. Right now the town uses white/grey stone as its main material. Whenever the pink set is finished and the walls changed, will any buildings inside change too? Canon only states that the Maidenpool walls are pink (which may suggest they are something remarkable, if the town was pink as a whole they may have said it), but taking into acount that central Riverlands will use it too, I just wanted to know is there's something planned. I saw some houses in Maidenpool using the new set.

The grey block itself has a pink hue but with the pink blocks there might be adjustments.
The city itself has houses built with different sources of stone, but you can see a fully pink block set just west of the main square.

I've always found the perception of pink-ness in the current Reach bricks interesting:

Anyways, like Ark said, the reason there's a few different versions of the pink brick textures floating between private hands right now is just because the resource pack team is still working on a final version for the block, and the individual people interested in the texture (Ark and Veg mainly) have taken it on themselves to test new modifications themselves. Anyone else is welcome to play around with the textures too if you have opinions on the matter; I'm hoping to finalize the textures in the next update.

Hi everyone,

As a mod who has been around for a LONG time on this server, I’d like to clarify some things about the project leading process, particularly in relation to Maidenpool.

While mods have the privilege of leading server builds and often do, they, just like all other builders, also have the right to apply for/lead solo projects. Whereas there’s an expected level of collaboration with the server community at large in typical server builds, solo build leaders have always had the right to manage their projects as they wish (within reason). Sometimes this means opening up the project to the larger community, and sometimes it means actively or passively controlling who can build at the project by building completely solo, limiting building to those who directly ask you, reaching out to specific builders, etc.

Maidenpool isn’t a server build. It’s a solo project. This means that Veggie is allowed to control what is built in his project and build with his friends if he wants to. And there is no “Maidenpool Elite.” If you want to build in Maidenpool, you can always try directly asking him if there are open plots. Worst case scenario? He’ll say no, and you can find somewhere else to build.

There will be plots opening in the immediate surrounds of the Eastern shore industrial area shortly (East of the castle)

  • Gardens don't need to be built-- they'll be built at the end so they're all cohesive.
  • Palette styles are outlined on each plot corner, each roof is thatch.
  • There are some tasty plots, don't build a wall to reserve them to return to. Leave them for more eager builders if that's the case.

Come check them out if you're interested!
