IMPORTANT Starter Island

Hello Everyone,
A problem that many new players face is a lack of plots, but more specifically affordable plots. We have tried to combat this problem by creating a designated zone just for these new players. This area is called starter island.
Its small simple, rent homes for the new players to help give them a little push on the server.
There are rules once you get to the area on the notice board.
However there are rules for other players. This area is only for NEW players. If anyone is caught buying them that is not a new player or is using an alt to do so the plot will be automatically revoked from them
To get to this island /warp starterisland.
Enjoy everyone!
P.s The area was made by Smilinq with the help of Creeper. Let them know what you think!

Good idea, however there is only a number of it that can be rented, in my opinion if staff does recommend to rent those plots to newer players, then it would eventually run out of space. Perhaps you can cap who can rent it till Resident Rank and also it looks like a more refined area of the old jb village near cayman airport. Perhaps you could try to refine the not so good shaped jb area to houses such as those created. It doesnt need to be super nice but atleast the area can accomodate a large number which will be beneficial.

The island is in a completely different area, you could perhaps create a small farm / fishing area for newbies to use and only allow Tourists -> Residents to break crops in the mini farm, or create a mini mining area.

I think its a good micro design as a lot of newbies will want to rent a place on the starter island however it would be nice if they had their own little facilities so that a community can be formed out of that village.

Not a bad idea will consider it and the plots are already specifically for tourist to resident

Woah! You are a beast! Thank you so much for acting on your wisdom! :D Hmm.. I wonder why no one else is doing this? Perhaps they think it is too much work and forget about it? There are ways to gain materials and money from such an idea D: Experiment and you will get even more ideas :D

It's good that you try and help new players. Instead of making rich players pay more taxes and create higher fines, it's good to support newbies by creating cheap starter homes. At the same time, we should make newbies aware about those starter homes by placing a sign in /warp tutorial that tells about them. And if we wanna make cheap homes, it's important to make them with a lower quality (a simple, basic build that you can have a shelter in)
