My house looks pretty good in that Smog article (one with the pokeball on top in Spawn), js

Yeah, Witch Farms really aren't worth it early game. We're better off finding a hut and working on a farm when we have a significant amount of supplies (or really want an abundance of Glowstone Lamps)

Edit: I was also wondering if we should organize Spawn better. Perhaps instead of just having a bunch of scattered buildings in a large area, we allocate certain areas to people and make it more like a city/town. They don't have to be huge areas, and people can make their bases in different locations, but I think it would be much nicer, more organized, and much more aesthetically pleasing (we could even limit the block type as well, especially if we are in a desert).

And let's make a Nether Hub please :]
 
Agreeing with mike on the town idea it would be fun to see what people could do if we all have the same amount of land to build a house in, and yes it would be fun to have spawn feel more like a small town.
 
Sorry to disappoint, but spawn is going to be pretty massive. We're making a two story tall city with lots of nice little touches here and there. We just started today though so here are a couple screenies.

Yesssss! Be careful with large flat floors though, a 5x5x5 area can allow Ghasts to spawn.
We should be fine if we half slab it up. Sandstone Half Slabs make a great contrast in the nether.

That's an awesome spawn still. Is that in creative? Do you need any help with housing designs? I can show you a bit of what I'm doing in my single player for ideas.
 
a fair warning to all rascals and rapscallions: if you go mass-digging sand anywhere in viewing range of smoghdad/sal-qaeda/las smegas, i swear on dan dan's grave i will wield whatever vestigial power i still retain to uncreate you.

I like the idea of a town a lot. We should do this, with a limited amount of space too. It would be a fun challenge to see what people come up with. Maybe have different sectors in the map?

And I'll use whatever current power I have to smite you off the whitelist. If you're gonna dig, fill it back in please.

also al-quaeda is NOT a city forks, you insensitive prick

double also: with the seed we've chosen, a portal near actual spawn gives you a nether spawn in an ideal location for a nether hub, so it shouldn't be too hard.
 
To anyone just joining our server: Wasn't that smog article enticing?
Yes very enticing, my first time on minecraft thread, i definitely wanna play so shall stick around til i get whitelisted, considering how dedicated poekmon fans are i think the server will be a masterpiece, also it's a great time for me to join with the new server set to be released
