Nether Hub and Nether Tunnels is a community designed and maintained area that brings the community together and provides easy access to spawn, shops and other peoples bases. The nether hub and tunnels are a privilege not a right.
TWS Community has spent countless hours designing and maintaining the nether hub system. To be respectful for those who spent all this time, we do not allow incomplete tunnels to be linked to the hub. If you do not wish to design your tunnel then you will not be permitted to use the Nether hub and nether tunnel system.
Yes. You can link off one of the 4 main tunnels North, South, East or West as long as you don't cross through someone's existing tunnel. While we don't expect you to design your tunnel right away, the expectation is that you will have a completed tunnel design within a reasonable amount of time.
Incomplete and inactive tunnels will be issued warnings and eventually closed up.
There are several big no no's that will get your tunnel covered up immediately:
1.) 1 wide tunnels
2.) Unlabeled tunnels. All Tunnels must be labeled.
3.) Tunnels that do not align within the tunnel design (IE: wood pillars)
Proper tunnel design should be as follows:
1.) Fit within the 5 wide area between the wood pillars. You can also expand to two sections if you'd like
2.) Floor can either be at 111 or 112
3.) Height should be at least 4 blocks
4.) No visible netherrack in your tunnel unless it's by design
Once you connect to the tunnel to the hub, admins will typically give you 60 days. This may vary based on the length of your tunnel, complexity of your design, and other factors. As long as you show you're actively working on it from time to time you won't be bothered.
The main goal in enforcing nether tunnel rules is to prevent ugly tunnels.
