So I made this a while ago, but I thought I might post it, for those who don't play Minecraft, if they care to look.

It's Shinula's Pharmacy if you couldn't tell. Not that I blame you.

I'm probably going to go around, take screen shots of everything and post them soon, if no pony objects.

A mysterious building has appeared to the east out in Nopony's Land. While its beginnings are humble, it appears to have a small sign out front reading: "Rivers Cartography."

Minecraft - New Map propsal

Postby Shinula » Wed Feb 22, 2012 10:54 pm

HOKAY.

So I've noticed that the Filly Minecraft server gets virtually no use at the moment. And if it does it's obviously when I'm not around.

Why is this? Many of you might say "I don't go on because nopony else is."
Sure fair enough, it's more fun with others. But why is no pony there as it is?
Well it could be a number of things, some which are addressed below. Anyway.


Important bit Anyway, what I suggest is, once the 1.2 update is released
[1] Generate a new map
a. The one we have has terrible terrain to start with.
b. It's got a lot of creative stuff going on, which looks nice, but ultimately doesn't really work for survival players.
c. We will have to make a new one anyway probably, for the new biomes and level format
- Apparently map files are now in something called Anvil. I'm not going to pretend I understand, but I'm guessing it's going to be necessary to make a new map anyway.

[2] No creative mode.
Some of you like it, some of you don't. For the ones that prefer survival, creative mode players have kinda.. ruined it for them. Not directly, but it's still there. Impossible structures and left over items. Anyway that's not important. But what is important is that, survival players are pushed away, and creative players eventually get bored because there's no challenge, or crowd to keep them.

[3] Hard mode.
Not only will it be more challenging and more engaging, but there is a feature only available in this mode. Naturally this feature is making it more difficult. (Zombies can open doors)
We'll have to actually work together I feel.


Anyway, on another note, some of you might be rather attached to the old map. For that I hope Mayday can upload it for those who want to download it and look.

The only thing I am attached to in the old map is my castle, and...I suppose the forest too. But I agree with this. Creative mode is nice, but it's also nice to have to work together to build something simple like a road. It's much more rewarding.

I agree with Shine. Having a challenge that makes us hold together sounds awesome. And it really makes building things, waaay more rewarding.

I think Shine is had a great idea! Though I will miss a lot of the creative things on it.

I'm never on because my computer shuts down every time I try to play a game. *shrug*

If Zombies Can Open doors, we just need to make sure we get weapons right away and other essentials quickly.
This will make it fun alright...

I could get behind this. I do log in every now and then just to hang about and see if anypony else will pop in, but that's about it.

Actually, the more that I think of it, the more I'm excited for it. This sounds fun! Great suggestions, Shine!

Does anypony know when 1.2 is slated for release?

It is updated to 1.2 with new map and new setting.

Changes:

  1. No Flight
  2. Hard mode
  3. Survival mode ONLY
  4. New map

Please do login. I have a few player confirmed that the starting point is acceptable before we start, but if it is still bad, let's reset it.

Rivers Castle is now established on the Fillydelphia Server. It's pretty hard to miss; west of the starting point. Just step right on by our two fuzzy little guards and you're welcome to have a stay in the Guest Room. Starter cabin is coming along nicely to give a good amount of help to anypony just starting. Also, CATS ARE SO SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

If you're willing to make the trek, there's a Jungle Biom to the north/north-east of the starting point across the huge expanse of water. It's not so bad of a boat ride but I learned this the hard way: cat's won't follow you in a boat. They'll just sit their fuzzy little butts down until you come back and walk them home. It's a long walk but not so bad terrain-wise. You just have to loop all the way around west, then north and then back east to reach the Jungle. It may be a long walk but let me tell you, the Jungle Biom is AWESOME! Unlike anything else in Minecraft, it's like stepping into a completely different world. I hope to see all of you with cute little cats of your own soon! ^_^

Hey everypony! SilverCrest here! (SimonDono on MC),

Just wanted to make a quick request that the difficulty of the server be bumped down to normal. The reason I ask is that alot of us active MC ponies have been running into ridiculous problems with building, and exploring to gather materials.

For example I have two projects on hold due to the difficulties of dodging mobs to gather wood, and other such materials. I know that the difficulties would be a good incentive for everypony to work together, but at the most I've only seen maybe 4 ponies on at a time.

I don't want to make a huge deal of it, but I just thought I would put it out there for an admin to take a look at and consider. If you'd like to contact me further about it, feel free to PUB me as SilverCrest or CloverWing. Or hay, just get on MC and I may be on.

That aside happy mining everypony!

Birdy Mod

Postby no space » Mon Jun 11, 2012 8:35 pm

So... I did a thing.

Spoiler: show
Image


But after a bit of tweaking, the thing I did can now also do this!

Spoiler: show
Image
(Thanks to Moony for posing!)


So, if you'd like to see some crazy feathery guy (me) running around with a bunch of ponies, or you want to be a crazy feathery guy too for some reason, you could download this tiny little zip file here and drop everything in the "Among Ponies" folder into your minecraft.jar file along with the rest of your pony mod. It will overwrite a few of the files, but I've tested it a good deal, and there's really nothing to it, so as long as your pony mod works, this should work just fine, too. Still, you should always keep a backup of your minecraft file just to be safe.

I didn't think there'd be much interest in it, but just in case: If you want to be a bird yourself, copy the "we.class" file in the "For the Birds" folder over, too, and use the "Plumage" folder to design your own texture to upload to Minecraft.net. I included a couple references and such for the skin that should have just about all you need to know. If you - understandably - don't want to bother with all that, but still want a non-crow bird skin, I could probably throw one together for you without too much trouble.

You must have the Mine Little Pony mod installed for this to work!

Anyway, here's the thing:

I guess I've been holding off on posting this for a while but I figured ponies would probably wanna see it. As the old internet addage goes: pics or it didn't happen. I bring you: Rivers Castle

Image

Though its beginnings were humble, this Castle stood atop a mountain as a beacon to all western travelers and even in its early days, held a guest home and farm.

Image

Image

Now, after recent renovations, the original Castle stills stands but its outer wall encases the entire mountain. It's front courtyard is over 100 blocks wide and 80 deep.

Image

The North Side with twin waterfalls faces a sheer cliff leading to the lower courtyard and beach below.

Image

To the south is Sandy's personal garden. Though it has gone untended during the construction, it lends itself as a comforting reprieve among the stoney surroundings.

Image

Of coarse, no viewing of Rivers Castle would be complete without its twin fountains which have become its staple. Next project is to have a large, lever-operated front gate. First though, I'll need 12 slimes... Updates as construction comes along!

The bird is really impressive! It's pretty darn cool that you can code stuff like that. My stuff wasn't so much HARD to do as it was time consuming. I had to move a LOT of dirt and cobblestone to make that happen.
