"The city by the springs"
- [+] Introduction
- Sunset Springs may not be the biggest, or most known city to HelloMiners, but it sure is one of prettiest, and affordable. Here at Sunset Springs, we strive not to become well-known or become huge, but to make sure everyone gets a well-sized plot for an affordable price. Sunset Springs was approved January 17th 2015. Since day one, we've improved rapidly and we are continuing to do so. Some of the things you will find around the city are; parks, subway trains, dock, beach, cliff balcony, and a beautiful downtown. We hope you find your plot or apartment as easy as it can be!

May 15th 2015- Hello everybody and happy Saturday!! What's the great news? Well, guess what? We are expanding the city today- Suprise! And it's already done.

We'll be back soon with another update. Until then see y'all !
May 31st 2015- Hey guys! New update again ! Anyways yesterday we put in some apartments in our city. These apartments are not inside city limits but are owned by Sunset Springs owners.

As of May 31st 2015, all apartments are sold out, but as they get sold out, the apartment floors increase and more get rented!
Here are some pictures.

There are 5 stations. They are labeled by letters starting from A to E. Station A: Central District, B: Main City District, C: Norther Main City District, D: North District, E: Ocean district.

You got that right, we are building Central Park! The park will have many trees and many attractions to have. In other news, there will be a plot expansion that will be on a mountain. The district will be named Park District because of Central Park right next to it. Be prepared for the exciting event! Remember that you can always assist us in this expansions just by applying for land clearing/worker here! Down below are pictures of the expansion area.
July 11th 2015- Hello everyone! As some of you know, TheLegoBrick who was a Co-Founder of Sunset Springs has left the server permanently and he will not return. In honor of him leaving, we made a memorial park where TheLego Awards Convention center was once located. It includes many facts about him and how great of a partner he was. Thanks Lego for all the hard work!
July 16th 2015- Today, we added something very special to the city close to the entrance. A very new park named the Jungle Breeze. The park is just a nice little welcome up ahead once you enter the city. Remember, Sunset Springs is improving with more and more parks!
July 20th 2015- After a little while of thought, we decided to buy some land for a boardwalk which is right next to the city portal and the beach. The boardwalk includes many fascinating features including, rentable shops, fishing, or even relaxing! Go ahead and check it out for yourself!
July 21st 2015- After a while of OreStore collecting nether stars, they were able to send us about a half a stack so we can turn our light poles to beacons! The city looks much nicer with having realistic like light poles instead of old glowstone ones.

August 28th 2015- As some of you may know, Sunset Springs is starting to have eyesores being built around the city and within the city, with that being said, we are working our hardest to clean up around the city and we even tried contacting the owners of the regions to kindly remove them. After that is done, we will begin our next expansion.
October 10th 2015- Well, it's been a while mate! This update is very special. To start getting into the Halloween spirit, we decorated Main St. (or the tourist area) with PLENTY of decorations which literally COVERS all of the road with cobwebs, jack o' lanterns, torches, and black & white carpet. We also changed the beacon colors to black and white! Here are some pictures! Go ahead and check it out for yourself. And do not forget, EVER.. beware of the rules or else ..
November 24th 2015- Hello. Sometime this week the land for the upcoming expansion 'Sunset Estates' will be bought sometime this week, the expansion is F11,000 but if that's too small, no problem; we will be adding on to it into the future. The sad part is, the plots wont be sold until the few region outside of central park are evicted and the owners of the regions have been contacted and politely asked if their willing to remove their regions for our large expansion. The plots should start being sold sometime around December (early or mid). Until then stay tuned!
November 26th 2015- Happy thanksgiving and holidays, everyone! Today, the city entrance was decorated with plenty of Christmas decorations such as ice, snow, red and green wool, and we also changed the beacon colors to red and green. Below are pictures taken of the spawn area. In other news, the new expansion is on it's way to happen! We'll be doing a plot giveaway when the expansion is complete!
December 21st 2015- Christmas is on it's way and we plan to host a F2000 scavenger that day (:)). Anyways, we have been working to get our expansion settled in. So far one region was evicted for inactivity and there are a few more to go here. The rules for the Sunset Estates have been approved and once the expansion is ready, plots will be sold fast! In other news, applications for worker and eyesore manager will open tomorrow if you are looking for a well-paying job, now's your chance! We wish all of you a Merry Christmas, thank you for reading.
January 17th 2016- Today is the big day and unfortunately, we almost forgot about it because today is Sunset Spring's 1 year anniversary! That's right; one year from today, plots were immediately being sold and the word had spread. Anyways, we most importantly would like to thank everyone for helping Sunset Springs become as pretty as it is today. This includes our staff, our plot owners, our helpers and if you contributed in anyway, thank you as well! Just take a look at Sunset Springs then, and then look now. We've definitely improved! Thank you all! To celebrate, we'll host a plot raffle when the new district opens! We're almost there! Our stadium will also be built at the end of January.
April 8th 2016- After several, several months of waiting for our expansion to start up, it has finally come! Welcome Sunset Estates to Sunset Springs! Plots are as usual F10/block and there are plots that are small and plots that are big. The rule-board states that all plots must have some sort of house and must fit the eyesore policy in the city. Go check it out!
April 9th 2016- Now that the city has expanded, we plan to get this new ironball stadium started approximately around mid-May 2016. This stadium will be right next to the downtown part of the city. Thank you all for voting in our poll; our team-name is going to be the Sunrays and we will be recruiting players this summer! That's all for now!
May 1st 2016- Happy May everyone! Summer is just around the corner and that means Sunset Springs will be including many more additions to the city! To start off, we have added street names to the city. This may potentially make it easier for people to find their own plot or apartment. The main road that runs through tourist area all the way through Ocean District is Sunset Springs Boulevard. Here are some pictures.
June 20th 2016- Great way to kick off the start of the summer! Sunset Springs has been very quiet recently and that is because we have been working on the city and making many improvements. We have quite a few announcements and new additions that we need to share with you.
Apartments are again available for rent @ the Sunset Springs public apartment complex
-With the new rent sign plugin, we needed to change out the signs and evict the old renters when they finished renting the apartment. All except one have been evicted leaving players with 16 floors of available apartments. F250/month. To access these apartments, use the Sunset Springs tunnel via River City/Charleston Hub.
Many plots available and more to come soon!
-As evictions have been done, we are now selling Ocean City and Sunset Estates plots. We've lowered the prices of some of the plots to make them much more affordable. These plots, as listed are being sold.
(SSSP66) Located in Sunset Estates. We lowered the price from F2360 to F2000! This, like the other Estates plots are perfect for a small mansion or a big house.
(SSSP68) Also located in Sunset Estates. Plot price lowered from F3150 to F2900! Great for a two story mansion/house.
(SSSP72) Located in Sunset Estates. This plot is being sold by the previous owner.
(SSSP56) Located in Ocean District. This plot is perfect for an apartment tower! Price lowered from F1080 to F750. About 25% off!
City outskirts cleaned up a little
-Obviously the outside of our city is very dirty and unpleasant to see! But we've fixed some of it up recently around the Ocean and Northern Districts. Of course in the future, there will be nothing but trees around it. Bare with us.
Sunrays playing in a couple months!
That's right, in September 2016, the Sunrays will be playing in their first PIL game. We know where we are going to locate the stadium and we plan on regioning it in July. August, we will hold a tryouts right here, in Sunset Springs!
July 24th 2016-
Summer's nearing it's end, but that doesn't mean we have many more plans for Sunset Springs. Without further ado let's show some progress and some future plans of our city.
Firstly, to sort of clean up the unpleasantness, we added a small forest with a bunch of flowers, grass, and bushes which hopefully will cover up the small towns outside of Sunset Springs. Here are some pictures taken of the beauty.
Speaking of making things look nicer, we plan on cleaning up the entire island of Canosa, Sunset Springs, and Avalon. By early 2017, you can expect everything to look a lot nicer. Once again, we really appreciate all efforts to keep our city look neat and pleasant for all visitors! Please help us stay good!
By 2017, the island we sit on could become a providence (even though it's a bit unlikely). We've been talking to a few players to see what they think.. Also happening this year, a government highway will connect to the Central District. This highway will be connected from River City, which connects to all other government cities and many other private cities! After all, you could ride a horse or even take a minecart to Sunset Springs!
As the city mayor has been inactive for a while, the Sunset Stadium will be complete by August 1st, 2016. Tryouts will be held shortly afterwards! Come support us to make a great team!
Lastly, we've been planning this for quite a while but we didn't think it was a good idea. However, since the island will be cleaned by 2017, we should have room to make a large port right next to the city that could park boats that you can use to depart to another location.
We've got some big plans for 2016-2017 so make sure you stay tuned! And remember, we are "the city by the springs"!
July 30th 2016- Summer vacation for some people is almost ended, so we've done some things that gave us a huge boost! Read below for all the details.
City has been decorated with a bunch of more trees!
We've restored of a lot of empty nature, so we completely renovated the entire spawn area with a bunch of trees and sea lanterns! We've planted these nice trees throughout the entire city, including central park! Speaking of central park, we've also made a new fountain, as the other one was very bitty small. Take a look at these brilliant pictures!
The Sunset Springs stadium is completely finished!
Yes! As we promised, it would be complete by July 30th. Here we are today and it is completed! This stadium has rent-able malls F200/month so if you want to make some money, come and rent these shops! The players have their own sides which they can sit out if needed and they have their own locker rooms. Here are the pictures taken of the stadium. In total, we've spent about F6,000 just on the materials used.
Clean-ups made around the city!
As also previously stated, we've been cleaning up the entire island to make a potential Province that Avalon, Sunset Springs, and Canosa will be on. This clean-up has been going very well and we've planted over 100 trees to cross out the ugly scenery! Let's keep looking clean and we'll be an even prettier city!
November 24th 2016-
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! We apologize for no updates within the past couple of months, but we have something that we thought would be neat to build which is a small lounge under the sea side cliff! There was a bunch of room we could've added something and we just did!
Other than that, we just want to say that we are extremely grateful that we're a city that is strong and keeps improving non-stop. We are thankful for all of our citizens choosing to live here and we're glad we've been strong for 1 year and 10 months! Big thanks to those who made Sunset Springs like it is today!!!
January 4th, 2017- Hello 2017! While we're nearing our 2nd year anniversary in about 13 days, we have some cool stuff we plan on doing to Sunset Springs! These plans may be nothing new to most of you if you've been keeping track of our updates.
- It's been the biggest con about Sunset Springs since the summer of 2015, and we are putting an end to that NOW! We've talked to Canosa and Avalon owners and they are being affected by this mass eyesore island due to the crowding mess! We will be removing as much as we possibly can! This project is expected to be finished by summer of 2017!
Possible future expansions?
With the new cleanup, that will finally leave us with a ton of room to expand our city. We really want to hit the big 100k land value so with this cleanup underway, hopefully we can hit that goal!
Of course a bunch of new updates!
As you have also noticed, we've been continuously decorating and adding on to the city. We're in no means to stop that business! We are proud of what we look like now as apposed to when Sunset Springs was only F31,000 in land value!
2017 probably wont be the best year for us but let's make it a great year for Sunset Springs! We are going to always be active in the future so stay tuned with more ne[img][img][/img][/img]w plans! Happy 2017
January 17th, 2017-
Today is our 2nd year since we were approved! We don't want to make this some huge update but we seriously want to thank everyone for their support in our city. As you know, most cities will die after 1 year and we would be part of that if we had none of the support we have today. It seems as though months past and we look at least a tiny bit better than the previous month! We're not going to stop that pattern. So bottom line is, THANK YOU!
April 2nd, 2017- Since December 19th, 2015, we haven't opened any expansion and today was the day we did! Welcome Mountainside District to Sunset Springs, becoming the largest expansion so far (bigger ones yet to come) at F22,000 in land value! We've opened 16 new plots that are sold at F10/block! Come check out some plots so we can grow this district quickly! Here are some pictures taken!
Our next expansion that will take place sometime this summer will be North of North Sunset Springs and will probably be the "River District"
- [+] How to get to Sunset Springs
- Just follow carefully as we direct you to the city
Firstly, /warp rc and turn to your right. You will see a big building that says "CHS". Go to that building and go into the portal inside it. After entering the RiverCity nether hub, turn right. Keep going straight and look to your left while doing so. You should come across a sign pointing towards the direction to Sunset Springs. Follow the arrow, go through the NNS stand and find the Sunset Springs tunnel. Once you find it, you simply follow the path. Very easy!
If you cannot get the directions at all just meet <Mod ~Bmatt> for directions.

- [+] History
- Sunset Springs was actually planned to be built in late November 2014. But because the city land value requirement price raised, we had to make more money in order to get it built. By December 26th 2014, bmatthew10 greatly increased in funds. He bought the land for the city. The land value was exactly F31,720. Then the construction got started which was the process in building the roads, plots and nature around it. After days worth of construction, the city finally got it's approval started. By January 2015, the rules got denied because we didn't state the eyesore rule specifically. So we simply changed the rule. After one more week of waiting, we finally got it all approved. ArcticWinter was nice enough to come and lock our rules. Then begun the Sunset Springs starter era. We first added sell signs to all plots. That night when we finished setting up the signs, we called everybody in chat to come see the city. Many people loved the atmosphere. Lojowhite then agreed to buy the portal plot and became the very first to buy a plot in our city. By February 2015, we made enough funds for an expansion. We expanded the city. The expansion took place next to the portal in what became known as, the Metro Area. Then hit March 2015. This was our second expansion. We named it the Central District because it only sold business plots. We then did a 20*20 plot giveaway in that expansion and marc050301 won it. His plans are to build an orubo location. After a loong while, May 2015 hit. Both city owners made more funds and we were able to do a 13k expansion that sold big plots. The expansion became a big part of the city aura and the expansion bloomed with buildings! In the future, Sunset Springs will be over 100k in land value and may become a big part of hellominers.
