    Hey guys!
    I want to make a skyway in build, what do you think?
    It would be above ground and not too far, so it would be like a nice scenic ride, ya'know?
    if enough people like the idea, I could set it up to actually go places instead of being just a scenic ride (could kill 2 birds with 1 stone :p)
    And as far as building around it goes, I wouldn't mind people building around it, but they'd need to ask, first.
    This is because it's supposed to be a nice, scenic, ride, so I don't want anything unappealing being built.
    Anyways, let me know if you like the idea, if I decide to build it, *then* I'll make rules and such in regards to building around it and such.
    I'd also love to hear comments/ideas. :)

    I'm already building a subway system so If you want, we can team up and make part of it above ground and part below ground.

    I think this is one I'd rather do myself, mostly, thanks, though.

    So there's not really anywhere around spawn that I can do this, but if anyone has any ideas; i.e. town to town; let me know! :D
    I may still build a wilderness skyway, we'll see. :p

    Try to add some mountainside rails where the map allows, think the Canadian Rockies Rail Trail for an example (photogenic).

    I did think of making a skyrail; but having something just hovering above the ground without supports looked too unnatural to me when I briefly experimented on a singleplayer map (since deleted), which was why I planned to do a more down to earth build (without the massive workload of tunnelling like I tried on Build7... ).

    I'd probably start off with a small boat ride from the river East of build spawn (I have a small home there between some other players) and find some unclaimed land along the river to have a second dock that links up to a village with a rail station as a starting point for this part of the map.

    Beyond that, good luck with it.

    Thank you very much for the tips Crypto!
    I also thought it might look weird, so I was thinking maybe it wouldn't look as weird if it were lower to the ground, for most of it.
