Nether is a dangerous place....but nether travel is fast. I purpose a community project. I say we build a nether horse path with a cart minecart rail option but only to towns interested.

If people are asking "what happens if we don't have a horse" we could always toss our bad breeds down there for public use.
I agree with MO, a surface path would look nice but at the same time I would rather a underground path as you would be safe to afk and not worry about ghosts or someone shooting you.Opyc said:honstly idc about greifing and it would look nicer if it was on the surface of the nether.

zor95 said:Maybe it's just me, but I'm still for our old nether hub idea we had going back in the original Loka. We did at one point complete all the rails, but then a bunch of towns rose and fell and it became outdated. It was hidden just above bedrock in the nether so newbs never found it (maybe not so much an issue now).
I prefer rails over horse paths or a hybrid because:
The nether is not a very horse friendly place
Mine carts maintain more consistent speed, are faster than some horses, and can be used to transport items easily
The tunnel (if indeed we dig a tunnel) required for a rail is much smaller than the tunnel required for horses so fewer lava sources will be discovered. It's less of a liability.
While more costly as far as iron goes, it requires a fraction of the building blocks.
Paths are more easily created or adjusted to account for changes to the rail or the addition of new towns.
More convenient to use (chests of carts can be kept on site).
Although to be honest, I would prefer to dig a rail through the overworld and collect a chest or two of diamond blocks along the way. Digging the world rail on previous worlds is pretty much how I've made all my money.

new players not knowing what it is, seeing it would grief the rails/path, but only us, that share the knownologe with them would know about it.
And we would share it with anyone that plays the server for more than one day, and is going to stay.
