Proposal: Nether Hub Proposal ~ Accepted & Enacted
« on: June 18, 2022, 07:36:25 AM »
Name of Proposal: Nether Hub

Member(s) in the committee who support the proposal:
ThyCoolio
quazymoodo
Francias
Arianity
Eagler1997

A short description of the proposal:
The proposed nether hub project is a project that aims to organize and improve on the current nether road networks, prioritizing both its functionality and visual appeal. The project places emphasis on the 0,0 nether portal as it serves as the main center and hub of the entire road network. The proposal aims to benefit the entirety of Origin, not only improving the playerbase's public transportation to all ends of the world, but also enabling players of all settlements and areas to connect their portals to one another in a much more organized and controlled manner. Some of the specific changes from this project that we intend to make are repurposing the current nether road systems, creating unified designs for the road network, enhancing the area around the 0,0 portal to create the hub, and possibly much more to come as the project continues to develop. With these changes implemented, the committee will be able to create notable differences within the traveling system of the nether in a way that will serve to be both incredibly efficient and visually appealing. Not only will the community help to pitch in ideas for the project's creation, but the community will also be the sole players who will bring this project to life. As it stands, the project doesn?t seem to negatively affect any player as the project only aims to make travel more efficient for everyone.

Reason for the proposal:
As a vanilla centered survival world, the element of cooperation is incredibly important amongst all players. Because of this, nether travel also becomes an essential part of Origin gameplay as travel between other bases and areas of interest becomes a necessity. However despite the integration of nether travel throughout all settlements, the Nether continues to be a consistently dangerous method of travel for all players, only causing more problems to arise. For most, nether travel can be confusing, daunting, and at times even deadly, especially to those entering the nether for the first time. For these many reasons, the Committee has come together to make their first decision in authority to prioritize the orchestration of the nether hub.

Additional Information:
In order to be able to bring the nether hub project to fruition, we will have to have a team of dedicated builders and volunteers who are willing to work together with us to create this tremendous project that will lay the foundation for future Origin projects.
We require tons of help from members who are willing to sacrifice their time and effort to help and pitch in. We welcome any member of Origin regardless of status to lend their time and effort to work together as little as it may be.

But before we are able to commence our plans, we also require the help of the community to vote for the approval of this project. If approved and accepted by the higher council, the committee will work to create a separate post addressing applications for the newest subcommittee that will be dedicated specifically to this nether hub project.
We, the committee, are just as excited as you to finally commence our plans. We ask that you give us a chance to show our dedication to our roles and vote for the approval of our nether hub proposal!
Thank you for taking the time to read, and thank you for voting  <3

This Proposal has passed with overwhelming support from the Origin community. Now that support of the community has been given, additional information about the following will need to be provided to allow the Presiding Council to pass it into law:

1. Rules and Regulation for the Sub-Committee (Committee of Nether Infrastructure);
    a. How does one join or be elected to the committee.
    b. How is consultation about the unified road designs completed on a community level.
    c. How far will the nether highway stretch from the Nether centre.
    d. How are materials gathered, where is the storage for this project.
    e. How would any disputes be handled involving any aspect of the Nether Highway brought up by a member of the community.

2. The mission which the Committe of Nether Infrastruture is to carry out, I.E. the highway specification and limits.

Once these are provided below, deliberation can be begin and if successful pass into Orgin Law.

1. Rules and Regulation for the Sub-Committee (Committee of Nether Infrastructure);
    a. How does one join or be elected to the committee.
The sub-committee will entirely be a volunteer service, anyone who is willing to join and agree on a few rules will be allowed to take part in the project. Anyone interested will have to formally apply with a template we will also create, where you specify what project you partake. As we plan on making multiple projects where we will need the simultaneous help of applicants you can choose to work on 1, or 2 or more, or all

    b. How is consultation about the unified road designs completed on a community level.
Consultation and brain-storming of ideas will be held in a discord server meant for the origin committee. When we come up with more concrete decisions, they?ll be published in the forum or discord (depending on what we think is best) so the community can also vote on what they like or make suggestions, since the whole point is to incorporate the community

    c. How far will the nether highway stretch from the Nether center.
This is up for debate for all members since we do not have a final decision on the matter. One idea is to go a significant amount of blocks in all cardinal directions and place a nether portal on the end to create checkpoints just like the kattalox and horizon. This way, people have a chance to visit places where there hasn't been a lot of player activity

    d. How are materials gathered, where is the storage for this project.
The materials will be gathered by the help of the sub-committee members who volunteer or are assigned to be collecting materials. Storage can be temporarily made near the project or 0,0 in the nether to start work on the hub. This can be up for debate if anyone else thinks of a better place to store the materials.

    e. How would any disputes be handled involving any aspect of the Nether Highway brought up by a member of the community.
Members who have any problems, questions, or clarifications can bring it up to any member of the committee where we can then discuss it with one another to give them a solution and answer.

2. The mission which the Committee of Nether Infrastructure is to carry out, I.E. the highway specification and limits.

The Sub-Committee (Committee of Nether Infrastructure) will be producing designs and plans for the road network, as well as giving input and suggestions. Although the committee's first mission is to create the hub, responsibilities will be divided amongst members who can choose to gather resources, create prototypes, pitch in suggestions, and in other ways that players may be able to help. The subcommittee have the liberty to implement changes and ideas they see fit in the nether project under the head committee's supervision as well as the approval of majority of the community. The subcommittee has the power to bring this project to life with their own ideas and hard work, and are only limited by the committee's approval. The final goal of the sub-committee would be to create a suitable nether hub for the origin server, when the goal is achieved the sub-committee will be dissolved.

Rules and regulations for the Committee of Nether Infrastructure

1. Joining the Committee:

    a. Applications will be opened as soon as the post has been made under this topic.

    b. The committee will be under the supervision of certain Origin Committee Members acting as chair, these being Francias assisted secondly by Quazymoodo. Just as these Committee Members oversee and lead the progress of the project, a member, or a group of members of choice will also assist in the management of the nether hub's progress, in all aspects including construction and design.

    c. After a concrete group of players have been formed to start the construction of the nether hub, voting amongst the community will take place wherein players will be able to vote for a leader to help manage ideas and unity alongside the Origin Committee Member's say.

2. Road Design Cooperation and Completion:

    a. Initial road designs and ideas will be drafted quietly by the builders within the community. A minimum of 2 to 3 or more designs must be created in order to validate the vote. Afterwards, unified road designs will be posted and voted on in the forums where options will be open for a time period of 72 hours. In order to pass as the final design, the selected option will require two-thirds of overall votes. Failure to meet this requirement however will result in either the extension of the voting period, or the designs being resigned and reworked on as chosen by the committee.

    b. Players may come together to form groups or just simply remain as individuals to brainstorm ideas and finalize designs. After at least 50% of the committee have contributed in submitting a design, a final 24 hour period will commence where last minute responses may be quickly wrapped up and submitted. After all submissions can be finally accounted for, a poll will be created in the forums where members of Origin may be able to actively contribute and vote on a design of their choice.

3. The Nether Hub and Road Networks.

    a. The committee plans on relocating the nether spawn portal's current location to y level 109 in order to coordinate the paths and hub together easier. The hub will be created and formed around the radius of the 4x4 portal as it is elevated to its higher spot.

    b. As of now, the path will continue construction on level 109 as in its place already exists a current path that we can take advantage of and use as a foundation.

    c. Although there are paths directed in all cardinal directions, player portals may be scattered throughout any level that's most convenient to them where it can then be connected to the main path.

    d. The nether hub will only be limited to a radius of 20 blocks around the nether's 0,0 to leave room for creativity whilst limiting space being consumed.

    e. Just as mentioned above, the paths will extend 650 blocks to all cardinal directions in order to hit the border and open room for players to explore. Similarly, diagonal roads may also be implemented in the case that the construction of the main roads have been resolved.

4. The Gathering and Donation of Materials.

    a. Gathered & donated materials will be temporarily stored in the overworld's 0,0 for as long as the project progresses. Storage will be organized through an assortment of labeled chests, strictly only for the construction of the nether hub. Committee members are free to take and donate materials as long as it directly benefits the progression of the nether infrastructure project. As soon as construction has finished, all trace of committee storage will be erased and the overworld's 0,0 will be returned to how it was.

    b. The task of gathering materials within the committee are assigned to players interested in contributing to the project without having to sacrifice too much time or skill. Although members may be assigned to material gathering tasks, the committee is open to accepting donations from all players regardless of association, whether or not they may be in other projects, or none.

5. Handling of Complaints and Disputes.

    a. Any complaints and disputes may be taken firstly to the Origin committee for deliberation. In an instance that the individual may feel unsatisfied with the committee's resolution, the dispute may be appealed to the presiding council for second deliberation.

    b. Complaints, suggestions, and other insights of the like will be able to make its way to the Origin committee through the use of forms used to keep anonymity, or through direct messaging and interaction with any of the committee members, where it will then be subject of discussion for solution. Appealing to the council will be the same way.

The Nether Hub Committee's mission and vision.

The committee, above all else, aims to create a network of nether highways connecting to all areas of interest in Origin's overworld in an organized and unified manner. The nether hub is intended to be safe and efficient, whilst also promoting easy navigation digestible even to new players in Origin.

    1. Just as stated previously in the context above, the nether hub and highways will be stationed specifically at level y 109 in order to fully benefit from the foundation of the paths that have already been constructed. The path will be made to be only 3 blocks wide across all roadways for safe travel of suitable size. The highway will stretch across all cardinal directions, possibly diagonal as well for 650 blocks. Though the roads to all directions are the committee's main focus for construction, smaller sections and roads diverting from the main pathways will also be made in order to accommodate for all the different portals of all the other settlements and bases.

    2. The nether hub committee is limited to construction only in the nether dimension, specifically in areas explicitly mentioned in the forum proposals that have been approved by the presiding council. As agreed by the Origin committee, the nether hub committee's jurisdiction of creativity and construction are only limited to the first 20 surrounding blocks of nether's 0,0 as required by the council. Similarly, roads of the nether highways are limited only to the original amount of blocks estimated by the origin committee, that being 650 blocks away from the nether's 0,0. Blocks and projects that push the set boundaries of the already established limits as originally dictated by the origin committee will be removed and adapted to accordingly.

    3. At the end of each road stemming in all directions, players will be allowed access to a portal that is one of 4, located in all corners of the world. These portals give players the opportunity to enter unexplored lands far from the touch of any player, serving almost as a vanilla random teleport to somewhere new. The committee aims to expand on this idea and give other players a new experience and a chance to start alone in a safe and swift manner through the use of the nether hub and its networks.
