    Easily, Aurora is the best server I've played on. Boasting a wonderful community, a beautiful, well-shepherded world, imaginative players who are always willing to help one another, and an excellent team of competent moderators and administration, this server really has everything someone wanting a vanilla/legit experience is looking for!

    I haven't spent enough time exploring the artfully crafted towns cropping up while I'm sheep-deep in sails and falling off of very high masts, and when the server comes back online I should very much like to see Jamalando, Rockbottom, and others.

    I think you've made a list of very good ideas, Zorac!

    Thank you to everyone who's helped make this server what it is!

    Why do you think you would be a great addition to the Server?

    I believe that I made a very good addition to the City of Islands server several maps ago when I first joined. I had a wonderful time making new friends and building unique and attractive creations. I never grief and love to help others make the given world a more beautiful thing.

    Post a picture of something you've made!

    I am trying to find a video of a floating three-masted Skyship I'd built in the old City of Islands server. I never took any screenshots, unfortunately, but Renbail (he and I were advanced builders then) recorded a brief video of it. After that map was lost, I stopped playing Minecraft for a while and haven't built anything much since then.

    Explain that creation you've made :biggrin.gif:

    I'd love to! On the old City of Islands server I built a small 'colony' with a sort of fantasy theme as the foundation. In the natural cave-like hollow of a cloud-high mesa (think a mountain cut in half, then carved out in the middle like an enormous cave) I built a diagonally-oriented three-masted Skyship. The whole ship was made of refined wood. I capped the keel in logs, as well as the borders or rail of the top-most deck. The ship had four decks, a captain's quarters, a bridge, and a recessed foremast that angled upward and outward off the front of the ship. There a watergarden was constructed, that poured in to the bottom-most deck. I had planned on making a garden down there. The sails were made of running water, and trees were planted on the tops of the masts. The main-mast brushed the ceiling of the interior of the mountain, and a small ladder made it possible to climb up from that mast, through a hole in the mountain to the top-side of the mountain. On the rim of the mountain I planted an array of trees. The ship's aft-end was shadowed in the mountain at all times, and the fore of the ship poked out in to sunlight.

    I built a waterfall that ran from the top of the mountain next to my Skyship, that poured on to the roofs of two tree-houses built in to the leaves -- with refined wood, logs, and glass -- of a small grove of trees I'd planted. The water ran down off of them in to a pool that was lighted from beneath, that was then funneled very organically in to a small wheat farm.

    Stretching out before the ship and mountain was a small plain that rose up in to a hill that bordered the ocean. On the height of this hill I built a tall lighthouse that was capped in iron and gold bricks. The lighthouse was several stories high, each habitable. Beneath the lighthouse I hollowed out the hill and built a keep that had inconspicuous windows that opened up to the ocean and to either side of the hill. A spiraling staircase bridged the bottom floor of the keep through its several stories to the basement of the lighthouse; it was all built symmetrically. This hill-keep's entrance opened up to the plain that laid before the Skyship.

    There was another waterfall -- this one naturally occurring -- that fell from the mountain on the other side of my ship, and from the base of it, with help, I carved a river that led to the ocean to the side of my hill-keep and lighthouse. I built a fancy, log-wood bordered bridge with glass-held lights leading over it. I had plans for much more, but the map was put away in favor of a new one.


    What brought you to this server? (Google? Friend? Forum Skimming?)

    Forum skimming. I loved what I read when I found the first City of Islands thread, and hope for the same and more from this one!

    What's your in-game name?

    Lejon.

    When you restarted the server for the console update and lost the White List and then added back in the names, Canna, I think you forgot Vivica and TomParker. Would you be able to add them again? They can't log in.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for the suggestion! However I've tried that (several times) and it so far hasn't worked. Am I on the Whitelist?

    Hey all! I haven't been able to log in to the server since the patch went through. I sometimes get a message telling me that I'm banned when I attempt to log in, but generally get this: Internal exception: java.net.SocketException: Connection reset.

    Is this a problem on my end, or the server's end?

    Hello! My in-game name is Lejon, and I'm somewhat new to Minecraft. I've been playing for a little over a week, and have been having a blast both in multi and singleplayer; I've found, however, that I greatly prefer multiplayer because I love to build for others' enjoyment and to enjoy others' creations. Also, to work together in the building up of a lived-in world really sounds like a wonderful thing!

    Why do you think you would be a great addition to the Server?

    Though new to Minecraft, I feel that I've got already a very good understanding of the game and boast a precise attention to detail and organization in all of my construction, land-cultivation, and resource gathering. I'm a mature player, a friendly player, and love to work in and with a community of players to help make big ideas happen. I should very much like to help make the City of Islands all that it can be! And on that note, I want to add that I only want to play on a legit server where all resources are earned, and will furthermore say that I love Island/Archipelago worlds, and am excited with the possibilities one offers!

    Have you had any previous experience where you took a picture of your "amazing" creation?

    I do, but not nearly as amazing as I would like; I've lost due to computer crashes my single-player world several times, and so have only built one somewhat neat (though not yet completed) creation. I have some quickly-taken pictures I'll post below (all of the wood was gathered properly, but the wool for the sails was not.) When/if I reproduce such a creation, I want to gather all of the materials the right way: chopping down trees and punching sheep!), and I've some pretty cool ideas that I'd love to work on!

    Post a picture of that "amazing" creation!

    What brought you to this server? (Google? Friend? Forum Skimming?)

    I found this server through surfing these forums. The name first caught my attention, and the content of the server's identity kept it.

    What's your in-game name?

    Lejon. I don't know exactly how it's pronounced because it's Swedish for Lion, and though I think Lions and Sweden are the awesomest, I don't speak Swedish.
