It's planned. I now have 7dtd purchased for my dedicated server account. I'll work on getting the server running tonight or tomorrow. It will be a private server only for pt members. In the mean time, let's discuss the basic strategy we want to follow: I really like building in the forest biomes as they have an excellent supply of stone, clay, iron and wood. The base structure design still needs some work but I believe I have a design that will work well enough to get us through two major hordes. The tower itself is pretty straight forward but it's the defensive lines, their layout and repair that has me thinking. The other issue with a standing tower is that it does not offer protection while doing large scale mining operations. An underground bunker/mining arrangement might work good too but I have to experiment with that still too. I imagine a combination of tower, fortification and mining shaft would be ideal. Using existing buildings is an option to, though they can end up limiting your design options.
