Update: There is already a Lord of the Rings adventure map!
However, this was made around version 1.2.3 to 1.2.4, and is quite crappy (you didn't hear me say that ), so I think we can get away with this. Can't wait until the server is up!
EDIT: This map doesn't appear to actually follow the Fellowship, it seems to be just an adventure in Middle-Earth. Also, we should wait until 1.5 comes out for some of this map, as I think it will add some really neat features (changes to enchantments, some redstone glitches removed, and fireworks!)
EDIT: Actually, that will be awhile. Lets just wait until 1.4.6.
Sorry, switched to a new post because i was editing that one too much.
That map does follow the Fellowship, and was made around 1.2.5. We will have to avoid making the mistakes clearly visible in that map, and use the versions released since then to our advantage. Command blocks, trading, and beacons, mostly.
Some things we should do:
-Use command blocks to tell the story, and make players say specific things (say @r).
-Customize items as much as possible: NBT tags! (adds descriptions, enchants, custom effects, and colors)
-Have a texture pack, perhaps multiple (16x16 and 64x64 maybe?), so mobs can be customized (also edit their equipment slots with NBTEdit)
-We need multiplayer functionality! Multiplayer does not mean add another bed and chest, we need better! (command blocks, spawnpoints, and say @p/@r)
I'm not certain if you're still accepting applications, but if so:
Randomly on the weekdays (1-3 hours), and a lot on the weekends (3-7 hours)
Can you Help Make the Map:
Yes! Building is my specialty!
Can you help make the Mod:
I have very limited experience in java coding, so probably not.
Can you help make the Texture Pack:
Yes, I'm fairly good at texturing, but nowhere near the best.
Can you Help Advertise:
A little, mainly by word of mouth.
Do you have any experience:
I've been playing minecraft two years in january, and created countless custom maps for my friends and I, but they've long since been deleted. I've also read and watched The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
In 25 words or less tell me why you want to be apart of this:
I love minecraft, I love making custom maps, and I love J.R.R. Tolkien's books, so this is something that would be very enjoyable.
