Project Finished! - Still Going to Have Mini-Updates Spoilers Used to Organize Thread
Blockball is like American Football... With Swords.
I thought of this game when watching a Youtuber play a map on Minecraft, It was basically a Football Field and they used a dirt block and pretty much ran around and killed each other trying to score. I used the same idea, but sprinkled the idea with redstone.
This game contains a fair amount of redstone, downside? Lagg. Other than that it makes it so much better!
A look at the field
and from the other corner...
Here is the field before you start the game. Notice the red box on the scoreboard is further displayed showing that either the game hasn't started or that the time has ran out. In this case it means the game hasn't started. The games time limit starts after the first serve of the ball!
Here is another picture of when it is started. Once again, notice the scoreboard is now representing green
And finally, here is it when the time is up. Now the red is displayed on the scoreboard, and also the middle torch is lit. The torch is lit to represent that time is up and it locks the ball from serving when players stand on the plates.
Now, when time is up you pretty much couldn't play anymore. But I though, what if someone had a good game going or it was a tie? So I added a +5minute feature in the player house at the other side of the field. The lights will display on when the button is active, upon pressing the button 5 minutes will be added onto the game
Here a few looks at the player house. It has beds for closer spawns and chests containing swords and specials such as web, and slowness potions to use on the enemy team
Before entering the field, you need to pick your settings, your time limit & your number of players. Here is the player pick area
And the time pick area, it looks exactly the same but it adds time
Here is how I did the time. Blocks vanish after 5 minutes so I did it by 5's. The block will shoot in the bin, after 5 minutes it will vanish, thus triggering the next bin, and so on. At the end, it will tell the game to end.
In the middle of the field are 8 pressure plates. Four for blue and four for red. The game remembers how many players you picked at the start and waits until they are all standing on their plates to serve the ball. This seems pretty simple but it wasn't. I had to go through every possible combination players could stand on the plates for every number of players. It's kinda hard to explain
Here is the blues Touchdown
Here is the spawn area. You can see the two little houses. The left house you pick the number of players and in the right house you pick the time limit. When this is done the field door will open allowing you to play
Now these two houses behind where the players spawn are the rule and info houses. These houses are where you get the basic information on the game and the rules
And lastly here is my sign I made for it, lol. But below the sign is the auto assign feature. It's pretty simple for all it uses are dispensers with wool:p
I got a friend to record a little bit of the map itself. There is no gameplay in this video because my other friends weren't on unfortunately. but yeah, Enjoy!
I had to remove the videos because it was breaking the forums rules. Unfortunatly, if you want to watch it you have to go on Youtube and look it up yourself :l
meh, i prolly have more of an accent than you do, i'm smack dab in Amish country (my grandmother is straight PA dutch, her seasonings include salt, pepper, and any pickeling spices (celery seed, mustard seed, MAYBE a little chili powder, and that's a stretch)... lol
