Design 1. Creative plot: -2,-4

This design makes use of the entire envelope of space allowed. Ice road is not at the same level as passages, but given that most designs dont allow direct flow from the passages to the ice road anyway, I figured I might get away with 'interpreting' the rules ;D

Design 2. Creative plot: -2,-4

This design keeps the ice at the level of the passages - but also flows that ice right into those entrances. This allows players to boat straight from their passage onto the main road. The rail line and soul speed lane don't interfere with boats. 

Very low lighting on this one. Moody tunnel through the Nether....

dulphin's tunnel

FEATURES

  • Elytra Friendly!
    • Smooth ceiling. Glowberries do not affect elytra.
  • Smaller! Cross-section width 2 blocks fewer
    • Less mining and materials!
  • EASY to get materials!
  • SIMPLE design
    • Easy to place without needing litematica or having to memorize complex patterns.
  • Colorful & Customizable 
    • Wool color can be different per tunnel.
  • NON-Nether Feel
    • Escape from the harshness of the nether with an all natural feel.

Where is it?
Creative plots server:
Plot: 1, 3
Coords: +105, +275

What is it?

  • Oak Logs
  • Stone Bricks/Stairs
  • Birch Planks, Fences
  • Birch Stripped Logs
  • Birch Leaves
  • Moss Blocks/Carpets
  • Colorful Wool & Carpet!!! Different colors per tunnel
  • Glowberries (they are far enough away from the ice)
  • Lanterns
  • Quartz Slabs
  • Ice
  • Iron Trapdoors
  • Snow Blocks
  • Optional: Place Amethyst Blocks underneath the moss carpets!!! (once the server progresses enough to afford that.)

Why Is It?
Tunnel Philosophy

  • Tunnels that are fully built/complete are more impressive than beautiful, best possible tunnels than never get completed.
    • Even after a year of maps being up, tunnels often never get completed.
    • Tunnels should be able to get constructed quickly, so that the server can then move onto the next community project.
  • Minimize mining time, material collection time, and building time.
    • This can be done by smaller cross-sections, materials that can be quickly/easily collected, and non-complex tunnel designs.
  • Colorful tunnels! Bright colors naturally inspire joy. 
    • And each tunnel having its own color scheme give them extra character.
  • Simple transportation methods work. (like boats.) No need to fix what ain't broke.

I went for a caves/mine theme with some of the new blocks while trying to keep things warm and friendly.  Blocks are mostly easily obtainable or afk farmable (amethyst and copper accents).  I tried to balance the ease of building with aesthetically pleasing. 

  • carpet color can be changed for each tunnel direction
  • Each personal tunnel doorway has a fence system, so we don’t get any pesky mobs wandering out of any unspawnproofed player tunnels. 
  • built-in sign section so player tunnels are easily identifiable. 
  • plenty of space to fly, two lanes for boating, and soul speed paths hidden under carpet
  • Light blocks hidden under the moss carpets, lanterns, and glow berries keep things nice and bright 
  • The copper columns have an ombré effect that goes up into the ceiling
  • The geodes under the floor would be varying sizes so that traveling through the tunnel is more visually interesting without too much of the same repeating patterns over and over (also makes for easy building since they can be done differently).

 

You can view my design on my creative plot at -150, -165
