    I think it would be a good idea for server admins to be able to set up a spawn point Space Station/public stations. New people to the server would spawn on the station where they could read the rules, pick up starter packs (if applicable), and then head down the the planet. This would work extremely well with my Drop-Pod suggestion too.

    That's a great idea! It is way better than spawning in the same old overworld spawn.

    I've seen really creative server spawns. Most of the time they're cities or little villages or something like that. An actual Space station server spawn would be really unique I think.

    An excellent idea! :) however MCPC+ (which is used to port forge mods into bukkit) seems to unload space stations when no one's on them, so that would be kind of tricky to overcome. :(

    Chunk loaders? I don't know I don't have much experience with MCPC. And I know that chunks in the overworld are also unloaded when no one's in them. That includes sever spawns. That's why chunk loaders where invented. So I don't really see the issue unless it lags and the player spawns before the station is loaded, which could happen on the overworld too.

    I would really like to see this. It could be in set in a config like: enablePublicStation=true
    and if enabled
    publicStationName=Public server station

    An admin command or maybe even a world gen option. Initial Server Station Spawn: On/Off

    The idea is more to replace the initial spawn on the overworld with a spawn on the space station instead, so making individual stations public or not isn't the solution. People would still spawn initially at server spawn in the overworld, and they'd have to take a rocket up. The GUI would also list all possible destinations.

    What my suggestion is; when a player logs into a server for the first time, they would start on a space station that the server admins built instead of starting on the overworld. Players who die without a respawn point set by a bed, would also respawn on the station.

    Public stations would just mean anyone can visit. Doesn't have to be huge.

    I like the idea, gives steve a more stranded guy look, and of course makes some things easier if your drop pod idea get included.
    Btw: why you don't bump your electrolysis idea?

    Great idea. This could be used in those galacticraft servers where your supposed to live in space, not on the overworld.

    You can live where ever you want rally. I just think it would be neat for GC servers. Some servers have really awesome spawn towns or even cities. Of course they're always on the overworld though. This would give GC servers a way to really stand out and show off GC as a really awesome mod right off the bat.
