AMCWAS- A Minecraft Community W/O A Server! The Project is going Live in Ten Hours!
Posted 05 April 2012 - 02:36 PM
This has been moved from survival to here. If this isn't the correct forum area, could a mod direct me to the correct one? Thanks!
Just wanted to know if anyone here can think of a way to create a close-knit, friendly community of Minecraft-ers who don't play on servers. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who has horrible internet, and a computer that won't stand up to a server, but still wants nice people to play and interact with. So- if you have ideas for something like this, or want to join the group that we would form, post here.
Okay, an idea has been formulated:
The group, which will consist of 8 players, will each create a new, survival single-player world. There will be a centralized thread*, where the players can post updates and show off their creations in their world- also post screenshots!. We can share experiences, advice and just talk in this thread, and other people from the forums can also comment and discuss what we are doing. Interaction between players hasn't been thought out perfectly yet, so we still need some ideas about this.
*Not sure where it should go- suggestions?
If you are interested in being in this group of 8 people- please contact me by posting here, or sending a forum message to me. It is first come, first serve. The group might change, but I'd like to start off with wtih 8 people. Required (For Now): A way to upload screenshots to the forum. Thats all.
In the meantime, this is The List.

I'm always interested in ideas that promote a stronger community where people can communicate their ideas and thoughts and share their experiences in a friendly atmosphere
I'm always happy to help people with their problems so post a message here or drop me a PM and I'll get back to you ASAP.
All the best

This, absolutely. Once people hear about it and see what's up, something awesome will happen. I don't really know where I was going with that, but yeah. Haha.

If we all played the same world .. we would still have different experiences and we could help each other such as: "Hey guys, enterance to an abandoned mine complex is at these coordinates" or "I found 6 diamonds in such-and-such a place" etc etc. On the other hand ... it might be more interesting to play in different worlds. I already know what seed I'm going to use [probably] .. . as to when we're starting - next weekend i think. I'm not sure what Wartower hs in planned

Zyrandar, that sounds like a really good seed to me. Swamp and taiga are two of my fave biomes, so I'm all for that one! What update is it for?
Posted 09 April 2012 - 01:36 PM
Little update on my current [old world] - made massive progress on my underground base. Got lots of ideas for the new world Really looking forward to starting from fresh - will feel weird not to use Diamond tools/weapons/armour all the time
BTW - what do you guys think about this = every so often we share our worlds [ the Save File's that is ] so we can see what we've done? I'm sure we can find a website or some method of uploading the save files.

Good to hear your underground base is coming along, Zyrandar. Did you make it bigger or add more rooms or decorate or get rid of slimes? I haven't made progress in any of my worlds lately. Just been digging holes and throwing chicken eggs. Haha. Starting a new world will be good for me.
Sharing save flies may be cool to do maybe once or twice a month. You guys will probably have a lot of "wut" moments looking at mine considering I tend to have some pretty random stuff in my world, e.g., a small building that failed as a mob trap and now is just a small building with nothing in it. Haha. Just curious, about how large are the save files? It's one of the few things I've never really looked at.

If that doesn't work .. I don't really know what to suggest.
My current Save file for my old world is 171 MB .. don't know if that's big or small nowadays [ I remember when PC games came on Floppy disks and were only 3MB in size. .. *sigh* those were the days ]
Talking of "wut" moments. .. you haven't seen my old world lol ... Your jaw will drop and your eyes will pop out your head like those old Buggs Bunny cartoons Recently, I've made it a little bigger [than it was already !!!!! ] and made it look a little prettier If I have time, I'll build a piston Elevator and a Slime Farm .. but I'm fairly zonked out and just want to relax a little

Oh, wow. Yeah, my current world is only 5.8MB. Haha. Your save file is gigantic! Course, I tend to be a minimalist compared to a lot of people, so maybe my save file's just tiny.
Are those "wut" moments you speak of good or bad? Hahaha. A piston elevator? I've seen those done a few different ways, I do believe. Are you going to use sideways pistons with stairs?
