    Hello

    We present you our biggest project:
    A cyberpunk city inside starmade. This city is built around an artificial asteroid, which can be reached by tram.
    All buildings can be explored.

    This is the spawn of a future server in preparation.

    Looks really nice, good work.

    I would recommend against making this a spawn area though, as this game can take a serious dip in performance with entities this size.

    Hi!
    Thank you for your suggestion. We’ll make it the server’s capital instead.
    The objective being to make it a RolePlay area with real shopping area, embassy, and factory, where it will be possible to buy ships to start, or a place to live.

    nice. warning aout your size: you're going to get close to units where starmade starts acting "weird" so do your est to make sure the "origin block" is right at the center of x y and z.

    Gravity-tram is a great idea. I use them in that funky old project i still have linked in my sig.
    -LONG gravity tunnels (over 300 or so blocks) can cause severe issues in complex areas -> Chunk-load-time can make them not trigger as expected. Be really careful of long-distance-runs.
    -having a few "hubs" within the loading-distance of each other will help a lot with final utility.

    Skyscrapers:
    -every room with the same layout is kinda boring....maybe try to make 3 to 5 different layouts, and use different ones in floors next to each other.

    General advice:
    Something that huge you can make hidden "shipyard ribs" and load blueprints to make things like "racetracks" or "seasonal decorations" show up without wasting resources making them permanent. Kinda like a holodeck.

    I admire your ambition.
