Oak Grove Town Application

Welcome to Oak Grove! :bee: :bee: :bee:

Image

Oak Grove is an expanding village hoping to join the ranks among Noxstead and Elysium.
We are gaining more attention and a portal would make it easier for new and existing visitors to stop by to check it out.


Image

We met and still maintain our village status.
Our four founders are BeautifulBrook, CoolCade1224, Timmycakes, and WeomuCat.
We have 6-7 active residents: greenblock9, germanpirate99, ShadowCat555, Carfoal, FredLime, Webster2000 (Talsair still has to pick which house he wants).


Image

A second farm has been added to expand our food production for even more people. We collectively produce carrots, potatoes, beetroots, and wheat. Cows, sheep, pigs, and chickens are also available for food sources.

For town residents, there is a wool farm that is nearly complete and a zombie grinder that is complete.


Image

Empty plots have been added for new residents to build their own houses.

Image

Large and small houses are available for players who don't have resources to build a house.

Image

And smol pre-built houses are available to players who have several homes or a main house elsewhere (in :cv:).

Image

Smol empty plots are also available to those not wanting to take up much space, but still want to build their own smol home.

Image

Despite the general cottagecore theme of the town, Oak Grove has grown to cater towards tourism while still sticking as close as possible to a relaxed and cozy experience. The fishing hut has been modified to host a fishing competition. Fishing poles are for sale inside and prizes are available for catching so many fish.

Image

A steadily growing festival & shoppes sit on the docks & coastline. Open rain or shine! CoolCade1224's distant cousins help run the festival games. Just a little joke since CoolCade1224's skin is known for having a pumpkin head.

A working carousel and a ferris wheel (with a lift to the top carriage) sit above the shoppes. Behind those is our beloved rollercoaster Nostalgia rated Cubeville's #1 rollercoaster. I'm pretty sure the only rolllercoaster?


Image

Some not-entirely-functional festival games are also available. Snowballs can be thrown for fun, but they unfortunately are un-winnable. But so are most carnival games, right? So that makes it more realistic...

Image

If we are so graciously granted a portal, we would love to put it in our cute little cottagecore stump. Entrance message would change as needed to include news of new events available in town. Signs are in place to direct visitors.

The original marketplace is still in place. CoolCade1224 and Blu (currently gaycinnamontoast) have active shops. Talsair, FredLime, and Webster2000 all have selected plots and are filling their shops soon! Plenty more shop plots are also available for other SKs.

With the exception of the world border side, lighting has been expanded up to 25 blocks past the village wall. This includes sea pickles lighting the ocean floor & swamp.

Required builds are also all connected by path and directed by signs.

Thank you all for your time and consideration! Please let us know where we can improve :D

Hi, the place looks great.
I was wondering about... 'Smol empty plots are also available to those not wanting to take up much space, but still want to build their own smol home'.
It seems that these 6 x 6 fenced areas will only be able to build a 4 x 4 house with a 2 x 2 floor space inside. I know that you said small, but isn't that a bit too small??? I mean you would only have room to place a ladder in 1 corner and maybe something like a stair for a chair and a trapdoor for a table and a chest but that's about all you could put on 1 floor. Also, how high could you build? Plus to keep to the cottage theme it would be hard to not just build a Box/Cube type house. For reference on how much land to allocate a small home, take a look at the small prebuilt ones you have supplied for people.
The mushroom homes have a 7 x 7 exterior and a (+) shaped 4 x 4, missing the corner blocks, giving it a 12 block floor space (not a 4 block floor space like the fenced plots).
As do the little zigzag 2 story prebuilt homes, which have about a 24 block floor space.

Constructive criticism: Maybe making the fenced plots a minimum of 8 x 8 for the fences would make them much easier to build on. This will give a 6 x 6 home with a max floor space of 4 x 4 (16 blocks). This also would not be big enough to build a cottage themed house. Though having a bigger plot it may be easier to build to theme. ;)

Thank you for your feedback Tis!

This is definitely something I hadn't taken into much consideration. Even a generated villager house is at the very least 7x7 blocks. While I do still think it's possible to build a smol home on a 6x6, there just isn't much room for variation, especially to keep with the cottage theme.

I will be playing around with plot sizes and expanding the smol plots to accomodate a reasonable sized home, even if it isn't someone's primary home.

Once again, thank you for the feedback! Please feel free to point anything else out as you notice it! It's much appreciated :D
