For starters this is not an actual server yet!  It will be but for now this is to get input on ideas and get early alpha/beta testers for the server when ready!



So after that beautiful large font text to get your attention I will now start with info on the server!

For starters, this is not a created server yet.  It will be created but for now while I am doing research, creating the mod, and building I want to get alpha/beta testers as well as staff and ideas.  I will be putting everything in spoilers as to not scare everyone away and so you can get straight to what you want.  Please do not look at the app section its for people just skipping over this intro paragraph.

General Server Info:
Spoiler:
Some Specific Information:
Spoiler:

Well there is some specific stuff but now that I hopefully have your attention here comes the part where I need you and is the reason for this topic.  I will be posting ideas in the idea section right below here and I need your opinions on my ideas, need you to ask me questions to help me think and get more interest, and to discuss with each other because although I can do research and come up with my own ideas you guys can come up with great ideas as well.

Ideas:
Spoiler:
Applying!
Spoiler:

There are so many other things but as of now I think this is enough.  Anything asked will be added here since you are showing you want to know about it.  I have many ideas and there are about 5 people who know most of my current ideas and they know who they are.  They can choose to talk about them here or not but its their choice and I can include it here but this is getting a bit long...

Hope to see my current people who are interested as well as getting new people!  Just talk about stuff and ask me questions and discuss with each other and we can all work together to make this a good server.  Anyone helping will have a good chance of getting in to the first and second years or getting positions like teacher, headmaster, etc. on the server.

If anyone would like to create a banner better than my current one please feel free I would be very happy to use it!

The current banner is:

Hello chugwig, I am mjn12456. My friend and I are coders as well. He knows a bit more java then me but I am progressing. This as anyone reading can tell this is a huge deal. Many hours of work will go in. I can help. My friend can help. PM me if you're interested. Also if you hadn't thought about wands. and different typed out commands or maybe a sidebar with known spells with pages for offensive deffensive and maybe like trickery. This mod looks amazing and your server idea about no building and no crafting I agree with but it may turn away newcomers. I am a big fan of HP and am willing to help the whole way through.
Did I help you? If so, hit the little green +. Thanks for your support!

As of now I am still working on research since I need to know everything about the HP universe so we can mod and I have already thought of different wands and such which will all have their own abilities.  As of now my plan is to mod this on my own but if I seem to be having trouble or would like a team I now know who to talk with.  Please feel free to stay and ask questions maybe talk about some ideas for the server etc. and we can keep this idea alive.

If you have anything about modding message me since that is something I do not want in the thread here this is just for ideas and updates on my progress.

Glad you notice how much work I put in and you seem mature with your post so I hope you stick with it all.  Just so its known if you read the About me you would see this thread was sudden since I had a little message thread but did not expect to need this thread up for a while so this was a literal 2.5 hours of work straight just typing and referencing my general ideas sheet (which I need to update and specify for my private use) and by the time I knew it I looked up and it was already 1 AM so wow!

As I said anything code related whether mod or not just PM me and I would be happy to discuss I am working on a cool project as of now C++ wise but am taking a break because this research for the server is time consuming.  Anything server related like with ideas or questions with specifics feel free to post here.

Okay Thankyou very much. I will most likely stop in from time to time and toss in opinions, and yes you sure can come to me for codeing questions. If I don't know he will so we are always a resource. And I mentioned the sidebar because i personally don't like switching wands for each task. I think one wand tons of spells would be awesome but we'll have to see in the long run.
Did I help you? If so, hit the little green +. Thanks for your support!

Cool and for the wands you will only have one wand (your wand) and to use spells I will have a selection.  I had thought more along the lines of if the wand is out you can use a kind of World Of Warcraft keybind method with 1 to 0 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0) for each spell in your hotbar but I like part of your idea.  Having a side bar would keep the spells out of the way and I could set up multiple pages.  Well there we go the thread is working already!  Well I am off for the night unless I have the sudden urge to check this thread (trust me there is a good 60 percent chance I will) so see you all in the morning (or 5 minutes...).

Muggle towns or, home towns? Wizard village in front of Hogwarts? Foods are like potions and give you certain abilities? Flying machines, maybe flying horses? What about the train maybe a level? Wizard powers level up? Villain?

There is no real need for muggles, Wizrding towns can be set up by those who have finished Hogwarts, and if you mean Hogsmeade I presume yes it will be built as we are trying to stay as close to the real thing as possible. The modes of transport will depend on what Chugwig is willing to mod and Villains can be anyone xD

  • Muggle towns are not really needed what would be the point of muggles especially since they know wizards exist if they are part of the server.
  • Hogsmeade will exist and can be visited by students from 3rd year and on during certain times.
  • I will be removing some of the foods and adding more magical foods but those are seperate from potions.
  • The potions will be like in the HP world with different effects like breathing under water, boils, explosive diarrhea (yeah I know but I am making the point that there are bad potions...).
  • Flying machines...  There will be brooms and magical flying creatures to be tamed so yeah flying but actual machines no.
  • For the train I am doing a piston conveyor belt going towards hogwarts behind platform 9 and 3/4.  It will take a bit of time but the point is for you to talk with fellow new comers make some friends or grab a snack if you really want.  I will make sure it is not insanely slow but still.
  • For the wizard powers level up thing you got something we have not talked about anywhere yet but that I have been tossing around.  Every time you use a spell it will gain experience in a way (basically the use bar will disintegrate like a normal weapon or item) and once it gains enough experience (bar depletes) it will upgrade to the next level.  There will be cool downs so no spamming and leveling them up wont be easy because there will not be many levels so it would be hard to max out your spells quickly.
  • For the villain, there will be no actual villain like Voldemort but as I said if someone wishes to go against all pure bloods for example then go ahead.  Anything is allowed even killing me (headmaster) and taking over hogwarts and then conquering the server.  Obviously I am also "god" in a sense and will not literally step in but will take action like maybe giving someone a spell or something along those lines to make sure the server is still fun for everyone.

I will be building this because as maxicut says in the quote below there are many secrets that I am not sure I want people knowing.  Maybe one or two people will help me but I will decide that probably mid mod phase.

By spawn it in do you mean creative mode it then yes and I agree with how unfair it would be.

Go ahead and feel free!  I would love it since mine is just a nice looking font from paint.

  • Yup and for building just so it is clear there will be ways to build but you would have to have good reason.  Good amount of money and want to start a town, make a shop in a town, etc.
  • Hogsmeade will be made but it will be rather empty unless we get adult wizards so we will see about that later on in development.
  • Modes of transport will be as great as I can make them I am willing to mod almost anything within my limits, the limits of the game, and within certain time constraints.  If it will take a month to set up how something will work it is really not worth it but if it takes a month but this thing is able to be used in multiple ways it will be my choice.  It is all about weighing it all out and deciding what is good and what is not.

Seems this thread is working out alright and we are finally getting conversation between you guys.  Hope we keep getting conversations up and if you have any questions just ask them.

Maxicut and I were talking and I have come up with an outline for the app with his help what are your thoughts everyone?

Quote

  • IGN:
  • Why*:
  • Age**:
  • Read the series**:
  • House***:
  • I will then have a few questions on stuff about the server like what is my name, what is rule 6 etc.
  • I also will have a question or two with an obvious answer like are you human and the answer would obviously be yes but in the op I say to say you are a unicorn or something.
  • Finally somewhere in the OP I will tell them to send me a word or phrase to prove they read the OP and not put it in their app.

  • *Why do you want to be in the server?  This can be either long or short but please be sincere this is not a huge factor for getting into the server I am just wondering.
  • **I just would like to know, it does not make a difference in you getting into the server.
  • ***What house would you like to be in.  This is just something I would like to know and will not make a difference in what house you are actually in.
I am mainly focusing on the fact that someone read the op.

Also for the *** I say that it makes no difference but in a way it does.  In the app it does not but in the server you will get to choose which house you will want to be in and will also take a personality quiz and that will decide how you get sorted.  The choice you choose for what you want is not a big thing but the Hat does take it into account as you can see with Harry Potter begging to not be in Slytherin.

This is the best planned out server, im thinking of making the banner so it says not hary potter but Hogwarts so when you get my message you'll understand why.

Yes butt muggles will add to the point where we could have "ghost missions" and would add to game play, an when they see you perform magic they could change to hostile, also villains can be anyone so can be the hero all im saying is making a story line we could follow?

What do you mean by ghost missions and do muggles fit in.

What do you mean story line?  There will be a general backbone and there will be events but you all make the story line.  When the server is release I am actually going to encourage lets plays of your adventures in Hogwarts and outside of it.  Checking your idea now as well.

Well for ghost stolen magical objects, ghosts are not actually malicious.  From all that research ;) I have learned that when a wizard dies they can either be a ghost or just die and many choose to die because being a ghost is a very grim thing unless they have a reason.  Magical creatures are more for the department of magical creatures which I am currently researching about (actually all of the departments but still) but either way actual player muggles are not needed for that kind of stuff and NPCs are not needed as well because they add a ton of work and are not as adaptable as you would think.

I know you are throwing ideas around and I love it!  I wish more people would ask questions or throw ideas out because I dont like your muggle ideas but some of the other ideas you have said are amazing so you dont win them all but you definitely win a few!

I now im slightly aragont about the muggles but i was thinking of the story line of hary potter,
also will we have personale spells that will help us or up health,defense,attack,etc. they will also

help you up your magic level attack spells
-Fireball, lv.1 2 hearts, lv.2 3 hearts chance to catch on fire, lv.3 4 hearts cathces on fire

-sparks, lv.1 1 heart and increase cool down of oppenets spell by 3 seconds, lv.2 2 hearts and
4 seconds, lv.3 3 hearts and 6 seconds

-posion, lv.1 effect for 10 sec, lv.2 1 heart 20 seconds, lv.3 3 hearts 20 seconds

-land field, lv.1 causes sand to fall on you for 2 seconds, lv.2 same but gravel,lv.3 same but 5 seconds

-defense spells ideas

-water shield, lv.1 block underneath turns to water, lv.2 2by2 turns into water, lv.3 3by3
-for water shield attack spell turns it to ice equal reactions depending on level eccept 3 turns water to lava

just a few ideas

There will be spells that do those such things like continuous damage, buffs, debuffs, etc.

This seems like a great idea for a server! When youre ready, I could help build. Also, I have mod/whitelister experience on two other RP servers: Assassin's Creep and Skyrim: The Age of War. I have read all seven books, too. That should definitely be as question on the app: How many HP books have you read?
