Im working on map based on PC game Transport Tycoon.
The supreme commander John 'Blackhole' Johnson is cruel and greedy person and if there is something valuable, he must have it.
Blackhole has a lot of things and one could say he has everything but it will not be true. One thing, single particular item is not in his possession. Mysterious item of great value and power that can by only found on one place and one place only - in the world of Minecraft Transport Tycoon.
John's workers immediately started to build structures and creating machines that will rip this world a part just so he can get that mysterious item. But terrible accident get into his way. Head manager of logistics was killend in cart crash during his inspection in one of the mines. The whole project is in jeopardy but nothing is lost, not yet!
You are the one who is chosen to save John's hunt. You must ensure that every machine and every factory has resources it need to work. Food for workers, coal for power plant, electricity and gas for engines and many more! Only if every one of many conditions are meet, only then can John get that mysterious item he wants so badly.
As the story says, you have to deliver certain amount and type of items to John's sites so he can get the mysterious item. You dont have to mine or anything, that is taken care of by other John's workers, all you have to do is build logistic infrastructure between sites and may be some machines if warranted by the circumstances Every site has some requiremnts for goods. Mines need food and they produce ore, ore is processed in factory. Factory needs electricity or other kind of power to operate. But to transfer electricity, you have to get cables and cables require rubber and gues where you can get rubber, correct, rubber farm and farm also has some requirements. Every site that produce some natural ressources have limit, it means there is no infinite mines or farms, when mine is depleted, you have to collect ressources from another one.
You can use carts, pipes and tubes for transportation but each site has its own form of output/input. For example some sites accept only by tube but provide only by carts, etc.
You are granted with access to warehouse to get some items to start with. But if u want more, you have to earn it!
What can you expect:
creating transport system with carts, pipes and tubes
low ressources pressure
building new sites you need to complete your task
defending your ground againts inhabitans of world of Minecraft Transport Tycoon
sophisticated HQ for your comfort
breath taking story of John and his minions (your self included)
and of course The Mysterious item as a reward for your hard work
BuildCraft, RedPower, IndustrialCraft, Forestry and Railcraft.
How can you contribute? Im open to any suggestions and ideas, i'll also need some testers later.
I hope this map will become one of your favorite, so ... wish me good luck
