The MRT Orange Line

Dynmap as of December 31, 2013

If you take a look at Dynmap, you will notice that a new set of icons has been added: 21 flags and a big orange line. We have finished the MRT Orange Line after many months of inactivity and delay – just in time to ring in the new year!

This line serves the north and west edges of the map, similar to the Green Line. It has 21 MRT v4.2 stations, 6 of which are transfer stations. The line’s 21 stations are, from northeast to southwest:

  1. MRT International Airport (G2)
  2. Foobar (Y4)
  3. Barrow (Y5)
  4. Alcraft
  5. O5
  6. O6
  7. North Pole
  8. Riverend
  9. O9
  10. O10
  11. Plainscity (B4)
  12. O12
  13. O13
  14. O14
  15. Atlantis (R4)
  16. O16
  17. Dept of Defense
  18. Whelburn (G22)
  19. Cyan Campus
  20. Eisitasi Base
  21. Eisitasi

I’d like to thank Just_robinho for doing most of the construction required for this project and all of the station maintenance leading up to the line’s opening, as well as everyone else involved for their patience and approval of the project. Thank you!

All Orange Line stations were claimed this morning (December 31). We will be holding an official opening ceremony at O1/G2 on January 11 before the GSM.

See you then!

Thanks,
Chief


Some Holiday Announcements

First off, we’ve just held our GSM for December. For the first time ever, we’ve allowed members to listen in the first parts of our meeting where we talk about current issues and future plans for the server. You can download the recording for the public portion of the meeting by clicking this link.

In other news, the December Inactive Build Auction has been completed. The results have been posted to this Google Doc spreadsheet.

Also, the January Inactive Build Auction has now started. You can view the builds currently up for auction by looking at the above spreadsheet as well by clicking the Jan 2014 tab below. Once again, please submit all proposals for current builds or any ideas for new inactive builds to mod+auction [at] minecartrapidtransit.net. You have until January 11th, 2014 (the tentative date for our next GSM) to submit your proposals, so please send them in soon!

Also from the GSM, we’ve cleared several warnings and promoted the following members to Trusted rank: 0rocketscience0, _frozen, bspells, and kiwirainbow. Congratulations to all four of you!

And last but not least, the MRT Beta server is now back up and running, and it has been updated to Minecraft 1.7.4. The address for the beta server is: beta.minecartrapidtransit.net. Please feel free to join and test things out. If everything goes well, we’ll be updating the main server to 1.7.4 sometime next week.

Phew, that was a lot to go through. Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season. 🙂

Thanks,
