I've had this idea in my head for a while now, and I figured now would be a good as time as any to share it with everyone! I'll just cut to the chase... Seeing all these airships, submarines, boats, ships, and naval things got me to thinking... why not celebrate these in classic style with a week (or a couple weeks) long celebration?
We could call it "Fleet Week!"
It would be a great way for those of us who construct ships, boats, airships, and stuff to really connect, meet one another, and just hang out and celebrate these awesome constructs. And for people who havent built ships, or dont know how, or want to learn, it would be a fantastic way for them to see how they look up close and tour these amazing vessels!
I know it would take a lot of work and effort, but I think the payoff would be AMAZING.
Here's my proposal:
1) We would need a server to host the event. Prefereably a dedicated server with little to no lag and enough space for the participants to place their ships. We could optionally make Docks for each of the ships. Also, the server should be able to support the importing of .schematic files. (For those who want to upload their ships, just send the host their files!)
2) A registry for those participating (shipbuilders and visitors). This can be further broken down into some sub-ideas: A) Each participant chooses 1 ship (to make it fair) that they own to show off in the show. OR, B) Each participant who signs on as a builder can actually BUILD a ship specifically for the show, during the show!
3) Some sort of set up so that those with shadier intentions (like griefers) couldnt come along and destroy other people's hard work.
4) Maybe, as an additional option, have a panel of judges to have a friendly contest for best in class: Ship, Submarine, Airship, Boat.
Like I said before, I know it would be a lot of work to put together, but something like this could maybe take place once a year and be a PMC Community organized Event.
Just thought I'd share it as an idea!
Until next submission, my friends, Keep on Building!
