Submission 1: Edward

  • Player: User:Edward, aka IGN Nardella
  • Location: Creative world: x = 421, z = -77 (Dynmap link)
  • Pros:
    • Spacious
    • theoretically fastest at 100 teleports
  • Cons:
    • Meta teleports, which count as admin maintenance (or require a player to pay extra).
    • Not actually clear what the meta teleports do
    • Totally dependent on multi-hop meta teleports for scalability - with 100 teleports, players would have to meta teleport an average of 3 times in order to get anywhere with reasonable speed.
    • symetrical rooms, probably easy to get turned around in
  • Notes: note the stained glass ceiling matches the stained clay. the first room is the admin and information room. teleports are added sequentially for freyr.

  • Player: User:Cassolotl
  • Location: Creative world: x = 352, z = 131 (Dynmap link)
  • Pros:
    • Cute little tutorial room down some stairs
  • Cons:
    • fence posts are visually distracting for Jay and Freyr
    • does not demonstrate infinite expandability for admin teleports; they are all in the starting room.

Submission 3: Bo

  • Player: User:Kachek47
  • Location: Creative world: x = -66, z = 161 (Dynmap link)
  • Pros:
    • Attractive
    • 100% renewable
    • Fastest to get to teleports without using meta teleports
  • Cons:
    • A little visually busy
    • teleports on both sides (symmetry) of a teleport road make navigation harder for some players

Submission 4: Freyr

  • Player: User:fallerOfFalls
  • Location: Creative world: x = -89, z = -111 (Dynmap link)
  • Pros:
    • Quite minimalist
    • Meta teleports built into the design, but still no slower than Cassian's design without them.
    • Scalably efficient - at 150 teleports, average travel time (sprinting, and using one meta teleport) is 9 seconds (vs 18 seconds for Bo's and 25 seconds for Cassian's)
    • All information that players don't need to see all the time is hidden in another room (but the room is made obvious to new players).
  • Cons:
    • Cassian may feel pressured to add meta teleports as the hub expands, though this would be extremely rare (2 every 100 teleports)

Submission 5: Jay

  • Player: User:Jazzable
  • Location: Creative world: x = 363, z = 197 (Dynmap link)
  • Pros:
    • Quite minimalist, even more than Freyr's
  • Cons:
    • Coloured line on the opposite wall is a bit confusing for Freyr
