So, in the current map, some of the Nether Rail lines are very long, and people have built tunnels jutting out to the sides of the rail where they are building. My experience has been that, because my cart just zooms past these side tunnels, it's very hard for me to find where people have been building, even if they have marked it with a sign.
So, what I propose is that, when building Nether Rails after the server resets, we should put put in a series of "stations" where people have to get off the rail, pick up their cart, and put it down on the next section or rail. At each station should be a medium sized room from which other people can start their rails.
- If building a rail from the spawn, the first station should be roughly 150 blocks away.
- If building a rail from another station, put a station every 200-300 nether blocks (maybe 400 if it's really far away from spawn).
This means that if one is building 5000 overland blocks from the spawn, one would have to change rails twice, and if one is building 10,000 blocks away, one would have to change rails 5 times. However, it would also mean that it would be much, much easier to find the location where other people are building.
