Elder Valley is a noob city started in March 2020 to have enough space for new players from the CLT 2020. The builders and co-operating mayors are ⚖️ Och_Noe and ⚖️ trap.

The Elders Valley Station was the starting point for the city. It will have several predefined plots of land to be used by new players. This approach is chosen to prevent any griefing of city infrastructure like streets and public buildings.

Since 2020-07-12 at 20:30 UTC the city is open for players.

How to get a plot?

  1. As a new or not really experienced player
    Read and understand the rules, look in Elders Valley for a plot you like to have (and better look for one or two alternatives). Take a book and write the number(s) in the book and that you accept the local city rules. Then place that book in the mailbox for plot applications. As soon as possible you will be informed if you can get the plot - and an empty book.
  2. As an experienced player for a shop
    Ask ⚖️ trap or ⚖️ Och_Noe for a place, any area which is not usable as normal plot is preferred for this.
  3. As an experienced player for an exemplary (nice) building
    Look for a plot which is easy to reach so that many players see it and ask ⚖️ trap or ⚖️ Och_Noe about further details. Also have some sort of plan or description about your intended building prepared.


City Rules

  • the server rules apply
  • follow the global and the City Building Code
  • the land is only leased, not your possession; it may not be shared; when a player is a absent for a long period their land will be taken back

City Building Code

  • the server building code applies
  • buildings should not be higher than 20m
  • the usage of lava in any way is forbidden
  • building and operating a nuclear reactor is strictly forbidden
  • trees should not be planted on the borders of your plot as they would then grow into other plots

Current Timelimits for new plots

In order to prevent that plots are looking like abandoned construction sites or wasteland the following time limits are enforced:

  • 1 week for the completion of the first floor
  • 2 weeks for the complete (outside) of the building
  • 4 weeks for the complete plot to be in a decent appearance (building and garden/farm/...)

In case you run into problems or are absend for some days while not finished the first building tell it beforehand to the city administration, any player who got evicted once from Elders Valley will not get a second chance to get any plot. Also any bigger reconstructions are falling under these time limits.

Available Plots

The plots are numbered so that they can be easily identified. The plots have a size of 20m by 30m and have each the same six different trees. The type of dirt in each plot can be different.

Here is the complete list of plots with all informations.

Some plots are reserved, so please check if the plot you are interested in is really available.
