Yes, cities should be generated as part of terrain generation, similar to how villages generate now.

No, every thread's fate shouldn't be locking, there's even still constructive conversation going on. It's stupid to lock a thread because the conversation has evolved. Interrupts flow. Like you have already with the suggestion. Besides, that's not the only topic of conversation right now, the fundamentals of cities are still being discussed.

Iv players are not going to build cities by hand. That would be like.... building a city by hand, there's really no better analogy to go along with it. NPCs are a simple answer to multiple problems. I don't really see how you could be against it.

You ppl ... I just give up,

You will never be able to build a populated city of that size and I doubt there will be idiots who will be wasting so many resources on it, you could build a few dreads with that much crap.

You say it is impossible to generate such stuff ? Just watch me. Actually you don’t even have to generate it the way you generate terrain in MC.


Honestly I cant see a reason why you insist on not having them. You only tell me "Don’t need we can do on our own" , we both know you cant, you say "You cant do that either" and we both know I can (or at least I know), so what is the problem ? Or you reject the very notion and try to justify it ?


And now you tell me my very own words and tell me Im against it, that’s like the ultimate proof that you never bothered to read my stuff.

Re: City Generation/Construction

Iv, you are arguing about how large cities should be built/generated.
Everyone else is saying that they do not want those gianormous cities in the first place.

Re: City Generation/Construction

No, you do not argue for or against it, and you especially cannot say that YOU argue in one block ... I think you simply don't know what you want yourselves. And don't drag me into this one too, its now between you and the rest of your you if you get what I mean there.

Re: City Generation/Construction

I really don't know what to say, I have a suggestion to make, but all that's going to happen if I make it is a massive shitstorm that's completely unrelated.

I'll come back when you can successfully hold a reasonable conversation

Re: City Generation/Construction

Locked, for the followi g reasons:

1. The poll says generated cities will not be in Futurecraft.
2. OP requested a lock.
3. This thread has served its purpose. If you wish to discuss city CONSTRUCTION, you may make a thread.
4. This thread seems to be a magnet for arguing. Refine your ideas peacefully.
