Hey guys. Wouldn't it be cool to make a map based on creating a town/city by using some of our favorite mods?

The easiest route to take would be a mystcraft age with a single plains biome. Some of the resources not found in the age can be inserted into the map in chests at predetermined locations.

Some of the mods that I think could contribute to such a map would be IC2, RC, Buildcraft, Forestry.

The turtles would start the day at their house. Walk or use a rails to get to work, go to lunch and dinner and go back home at night.

What do you guys think about this idea?

Create a mayor/citizen role between turtles/computers.
Create a path finding system.
Create a crafting system.
Identify mod items that can't be placed by turtles correctly.
Creat a system to build structures.

I support, but we should have like a "mayor" or "president" turtle that controls them all ( it's actually the main server that makes them function :D, incase they get a AI and become evil :3 )

It would be a heck of a lot of work.. but it would be... AWESOME!

Even have turtles building houses for new turtles!

Haha yeah this would be cool. I also agree with the mayor turtle idea and turtles building houses.

If you got a CC addon to see item id's it would be really cool!
(Wouldn't be too overpowered, considering real players (like us) can see item/block names)
This could really make the city grow! And by starting with 1 turtle.
As long as the turtle got unlimited fuel and maybe a chunkloader it wouldn't be impossible

6 replies already, cool. You all are right, a mayor computer or some type ofhierarchical would be necessary.
I figure, there are two main reason why there should be a mayor computer.

First, because it needs to know and control where everything is built.
Second, because of pathfinding. Sending a map wirelessly to each turtle takes excessive time. It would be far more effective to send a request to a master computer and have it find a path.

I think I will update the original post with mini-goals.
