It’s so easy to take gaming and games for granted. I hadn’t given this much thought until Minecraft updated to version 1.8 and all kinds of heck broke loose through out its community. Wesley Wolfe DMCA’ed CraftBukkit and its forks. Continue reading “Toad Family Zoo Updated to 1.8!”
First this happened:
I haven’t posted in awhile. Sorry about that. I’ve been working pretty hard on a map project. Even made a YouTube video of it for the map’s story prologue. I wish Spigot was compatible with 1.8 which will be released soon so I could add it to the family server as an RPG map.
In any case I have the project download posted over at PlanetMinecraft here.
It’s been awhile since my last post and I apologize for that. I’ve been busy starting the server over with a brand new map. We were suddenly having issues with spawning into a void like area and eventually getting kicked off the server for “floating too long” or some such thing. We had areas that had chunks missing – all the way down through the bedrock into the void. Even when downloading a copy of these maps, the errors/bugs/glitches persisted. I can only assume it was caused by all my tinkering and experimentation with plugins. I did a lot of installing and uninstalling of those plugins so it’s hard to say just what exactly was the cause. With that said, I had no way of repairing the damage. There was no choice but to restart the server with a fresh seed and a new server central. This time I decided we only needed three worlds: Survival, Creative and PvP. This covers all the play styles of our family.
Here’s a few screenshots of our new Server Central located next to a Mushroom Island in our Survival world:
Since July started, I’ve been working on this project for a building contest over at PlanetMinecraft.com. I’ll be tracking my progress here in this entry with screenshots until the end of the contest.
If you like what you see and the progress I’ve made so far, please show this contest entry some love and your support with a diamond on the PMC site! Continue reading “Haven Hearth – My Building Project for the July 2014 PMC Building Contest”
May the light reach the darkness.
May the darkness embrace the light.
Never to be severed;
One can not be without the other.
May these gates forever open unto you.
May you be strengthened.
Come and be welcomed
Within this soul sanctuary.
May you rise within the twilight.
May you preserve the balance.
Come home to Haven Hearth
and stand as one of us. Continue reading “Covenant of Haven Hearth – edited again”
Sorry for no posts as of late. I’ve been busy with Tuxedo Cat’s Special Olympic Summer Games this past week.
I did manage to get some stuff done during that time: Continue reading “A Handful of Stuff that got Done during the Special Olympic Summer Games”
Here is the current to-do list for the mini dungeon:
It’s still a lot of work left, but it’s getting there.
I’ve created a new home world for players to spawn in for the first time. It’s an InfinitePlots world, so this should make sure new players have a place to build their headquarters/home base/estate. It includes:
- an NPC village
- an apartment complex for those who don’t wish to build a home
- a chat cafe for those who like to log in just to chat
- a newbie to Minecraft tutorial
- a tutorial on the server’s plugins
- a player mall
- the world tree portal hub has been moved to this world
- a dungeon tower: “Toad Tower of Terror” designed for a team to run through
I still need to build a post office for this world and then it will be ready for use.
