Town x is hiring: Terraform Wheat [Taken]
« on: 16 Apr 2018, 04:28:39 »
Hello community,

Polish up your shovels, pickaxes, and get rid of the splinters on the workbench. It's time to stretch those muscles and get ready to spend a day, a weekend, a week or two terraforming in town x. Get your decoration chests and resources ready to be put to good use.

Town x is looking for terraformers who are familiar with organic / middle earth style of terraforming. Do you have experience with creating a nice and cozy looking field made of wheat? And have the time in April and May to build something awesome for us? Then you're certainly the person we're looking for.

There is a whole area (See video linked below) that I will put up as embassy plots. If we pick you for the job you can claim those as yours to work with, and you can get started.

You're free to terraform the environment to fit your creativity, and as any wheat field, build on it with water sources semi hidden and stay true to the ground (no need to start digging dirt layers down etc). Just use common sense. Perhaps get inspired by some existing designs on google images, youtube etc.

You will terraform on behalf of town x. They become our property so to speak. After the build is finished we're free to customize it, take it down, rebuild it, sell the plots to players who want to live there. So it seems logical to compensate you for your troubles. And so we will.

You will get some money to help you repair your items and cover the cost of some of your resources that you yourself will supply. And you will get some money for simply taking the time to build on the plots. But, since we're paying, I think it's fair to say it should be more than just placed down wheat, be a bit creative .. a field has features! We like features and details .. you know what I mean.

We can offer you a 200,000 nbz to cover your time, your costs, resources, and to say thank you for the hard work in April and May. (it would be nice if it is done before the end of May please.

We're looking for a friendly and cozy looking place with a creative approach, decorations, and basically something that's clear some effort has been put into it. Please only reply to this thread if you have a bit more than the basics of terraforming, got some know-how and experience doing this stuff. :)

What about credits? I am like davinci and demand my swag .. ok stop.. don't worry. You're free to leave a sign locked to a block (that's not in the way if ppl would live there) with your name on it. What is ok : build made by yourName, from town whatever.. What is not ok: like these builds? join town whatever (no advertisements,. basically).

In February I made a thread with some additional information, in case you're looking for more hiring jobs (there will be, keep an eye on the forums). https://www.noobscraft.com/market/heads-up-town-x-hiring-builders-in-march/

Can I apply Floris?
Yes! Just reply to this thread.. and later today I will update the thread. Sometimes we will pick someone based on knowing how they build, or simply because they were the first to reply: Please do not take it personal if you don't get picked.

Can I build with my friends?
Nope, sorry, not this time around. If someone else needs access please ask first! Just please understand you're responsible: If they grief the plot, I will come hunt you both down.

Please note that we give permission to build the wheat farm, you have 0 permissions to take from what was build originally below ground etc, please use common sense.

Wait, I have to use my own resources?
Yep, I am not always online, and waiting for me to show up to give you a beacon for example is unrealistic. I hope instead of paying 100k, I pay at least double as much for this job to help compensate in costs/resources. But I do expect some features like a couple of melon and pumpkin patches, as well as maybe a scarecrow or two, and just a pretty approach, maybe a few chopped down logs that are tied down.

This is made for town x right, it will be like .. yours. When we're done?
Yep, you are simply helping us out adding some more things to our town.

What if I really like what I made, can I copy it to my own plot/wild/town?
If YOU made it, you are free to copy that. Yeah, I think that's more than fair.
If YOU did not make it, then we consider it stealing town designs. We play fair. <3

I went to the plots but couldn't claim any plots?!
Please wait for me to get online. That way we can guarantee the right person gets the plots.

Wait, so, this does not include the 3 market plots and the wheat-field-hut?
Nope, those are 2 different jobs, they will be posted soon :) Yes, you could potentially apply for those as well - see the video^

Anyway. Thank you for reading this, get motivated, sharpen those tools and keep an eye on the forums, there will be a couple of threads per week(end) surely.

Questions? well, ... shoot!

Oh, don't forget to leave the custom terrain trees in place, vanilla trees are easier to remove/place back, but .. custom ones are prettier and harder to replace. Just kinda build around it, or embed it into the build :) i thought i'd point that out

By the way;



An example of a wheat field we have with a bit of variety in it, etc.. to get a more realistic example.

That's a small one, what we're making covers about 10 plots probably.

Thank you both for the interest!
I will leave this thread running for a few days so more people have time to read & reply :) Before I go pick one or more people!
(btw, if i pick 2 ppl for the job, i will probably pay each 175k, which i still think is quite a bit of cash

I'm wondering if it's a 2 player job then would both be working on the 10 plots or you'd split it like 5 for each? Oh yeah your gonna do that for all the ones I post on.

There's stuff to do at the top, on the left and right- check the video, there's enough plots! might not be 10, could be 6 to 10 i guess.. we will figure it out in detail soon. It will be spread as equal as possible of course :)

If say 3 ppl will do this, all three will get 175k each btw, not going to lower it any further :)

Ok cool, thanks for showing an interest too.

--- ok, another note:


Some of the things that we can add as features are little water wells, patches of logs like they're chopped down.
Maybe things like fences behind some areas to split things off. Some patches can be smaller with fences around it, but then make it potato or beets. We can place a few wheelbarles and what not.

Enough variety to make it look cozy, medevil, romantic, and just fun to run around in and explore. Heck, i might find a few spots to hide something underground ;)

Hey there, it's now Wednesday, and I have had time to go through the plots and think about stuff a bit more.

I am interested in all three of you to help out, Diamond, Otto, and Killjoy.
Killjoy and I talked about it a little bit. She can focus on the water / canal / path area while you guys do the wheat fields - and give you guys pointers as the weeks go by.

I will pay you all 175k to help out in April and May.  But please don't slack :) Don't wait with your assigned plots until the last week of May or something. :)

If Otto does about 3 or 4 plots on the side, and diamond does about 3 or 4 plots in the top row, that's a great start.
When you & i are online, i can setup the plots and then you know which ones you're assigned to.

As the weeks go by, they change slightly of course :) But let's start with a couple each.

Update:

Otto and Diamond have their first bath of plots to work on.
Killjoy in the meantime has started on the water area and I made a start in a few plots that killjoy is finishing designs on now.

I've worked on tiny secret underground area that I will finish tomorrow (dont worry bout it, nothing to see).

But all in all, the first steps are taken and it's already looking pretty good.

Can't wait for everybody start :)

Update;

We're making some nice progress, good job so far Diamond and MrOtto :)

Have fun in May with finishing those assigned plots and I hope upcoming weekend we can figure out together which plots are still needed to connect everything together.

Talked to Killjoy the last few days about the work she's done and what's to come,

what's left to discuss i have to do with diamondpuppy and mrotto, if we're online I will msg you guys and if we have time we can go through the plots and see what's next to be done. We're getting closer to merging some plots together. Very exciting.

See you all online soon!
