Ironcraft Server Development Thread
Welcome to the Ironcraft Server Development Thread! This Thread is for the development team that will help build the server that will transform Minecraft multiplayer.
We currently have three projects on our server. Please read below for details. We have many different positions that are needed to be filled.

New York City, Minecraft
For existing staff:
How cool would it be to have a New York City in Minecraft?
You might be thinking "Not another one of these...". Well, what I have to say to you is that it IS possible, with the kind of tools we use. We are currently building New York City at about a 1/4 scale.
We started with Central Park and are extending our building to the Grand Army Plaza, right next to Central Park, from there we continued down 5th Avenue (with the Plaza Hotel and the Apple Store!) and are making our way down to the South-Western tip of Manhattan. We will also build the Staten, Roosevelt, Governor's, and Ellis Islands that surround the Big Apple.
It might seem like a lot, but with our advanced tools to help us build, it is not that hard at all. For instance, building a road over and over again is very boring, that is why we have a mod that automatically makes the roads for us just as you walk! Plus the roads can be completely customized to your liking. Also, how can you build a tall building with just your "1-brick-at-a-time" method? World Edit is the answer!
So now you're saying, "Okay, well how do you build accurately, I mean it's not like New York doesn't have many awesome features." Our answer is simple: Google Earth. We also use Google Earth's three dimensional buildings to help us design the building to where it is just like real life!
Google Maps is also useful for planning the "lay of the land" and where streets are to be. In addition to that, we also use Wikipedia, search engines, such as Google and Bing (*bong!*), and Google Earth's 3600 panorama to help us design the interiors of buildings.
Okay, sounds great! But, what are you going to do with the city that never sleeps (according to Frank Sinatra)? Stock Markets? BORING (for Minecraft at least)
We have three big ideas for New York City, Minecraft, that are different from each other, that we are thinking about, but we are still open to suggestions!
Our first proposal (#1):
- New York is the spawn point and main business city of the world, where you can found your own cities. Much like other servers, where you can found a city and get residents.
Our second proposal (#2):
- The Apocalyptic War between the United States and an extremist-controlled country has occurred, only to end in nuclear assault from both sides. Unfortunately New York was nearly blown to shreds, but the missile flew off course and hit just north of Yonkers (yes, it's a real place north of New York)! Unfortunately, the radiation hit New York terribly though, but fortunately, many of New York's population evacuated to a nuclear bunker below ground when they heard of the threat and survived the bomb.
You can either join or, if you get to a higher rank, start a faction of your own, and try to reclaim New York and make it the democracy that it used to be, or bring about dictatorship and be sitting on top of Freedom Tower, or anything in between! The only thing stopping you are the other factions that want the same!
Proposal #3: Much like proposal #2, you are part of a faction battling for control of New York, but this time, we're back in the roaring twenties, when Frank Sinatra sung "New York, New York". Join or start a gang and be on the "top of the street" with your gangster friends (or be a civilian and live a normal, somewhat productive life).
Proposal #4: Please, let us know what great ideas you have for New York City, Minecraft
The Ironcraft Hunger Games
For existing staff:
If you have ever read the Hunger Games, this will be the ultimate Minecraft project for you! Our idea is to make an arena in Minecraft that follows the key locations of a Hunger Games arena. Then, we will proceed into making this arena into a YouTube series that occurs weekly or maybe monthly.
Users can choose to live in different districts and two (probably one to start off with) volunteers are chosen from each district. There will be filmers for each contestant, and there will be a use for the things that you mine in this world especially, because you can send them to your favored contestant in a package!
The Hunger Games would be filmed by the official Ironcraft YouTuber and would be posted publicly on YouTube for everyone to see! Using a mod built in to the Ironcraft server, cameramen can be invisible for proper filming, and we also make GameMaker contraptions too to spice it up and give the games some action!
For more information please about the Hunger Games contact samrrocks, he is the other server owner and the director of the Hunger Games Project.

The server should stay on most of the time, although it might be down from one time to another and because of the fact that we are installing better, more advanced server hardware at the moment.
Thanks and hope to see you on Ironcraft!
