I am looking for active map makers to make custom maps for my RPG-style server.
I will need four, though I will only ask for one per person as I know good maps take time. These must be well made. I do not expect them to be done in just a few days, but I do expect to have active updates with those making the maps as I don't want the project to take years to complete.
Here are descriptions of what I am looking for:
Two "main" maps which are ~15k x 15k blocks. These will be the biggest continents/archipelagos and contain the most biomes. I would like several regions/biomes per map. These two maps will be mostly warm climate regions with swamps, mountains, deserts, etc. I can give further examples if needed.
Two ~10k x 10k block maps which are cold climate biomes. Ice plains, snow, snowy mountains, snowy taigas etc.
Hello again everyone! Still looking for someone to make some awesome maps and be a very important part of our project! We have buildings and dungeons and quests and arenas and instances and stories and custom plugins. We even have a new shiny DNS picked out. We just need you wonderful wonderful map makers.
Another day of searching! My server now has a brand new DNS as well as a new website. Please visit us at planarshiftmc.enjin.com and offer your map-making services! I'm currently learning World Machine in order to help with content, but I could use someone with experience.
I am still recruiting/hiring map/world makers. I haven't gotten a single inquiry for maps in two weeks on any forums. Please do PM me if you are even interested in participating in a server's development.
I have done both of those things and actually I received two emails today and, while the other two individuals never actually talked to me about the project, I did receive two skype adds.
I have six threads and 10 open emails as well as a few you-tube messages. You shouldn't assume that this is my only means of searching. I just didn't want to keep making a new thread. I don't see how a new thread every two days looks any better and often it is frowned upon to make new threads on existing topics. I think perhaps it's silly to think that looking for along time in a determined fashion is bad.
I am also only asking for one map. If you read my description, I said I would request only one map per person unless they wanted to do more.
As for reward, I think this is a hobby and as such is a reward in itself. This is based on a game that someone else made initially for fun. I'm not being paid. I'm not a business. You don't get paid for recreation. Not to mention most, if not all, of the plugins which are used are done for free on someone's own time so don't try to tell me people don't play the game and make servers simply because it's fun and they want to.
I will not give people mod or admin ranks unless they prove they can handle those ranks. I don't want people doing things that are detrimental to the server and my current admins do have quite a bit of power, as well as responsibility. I do have ranks specially for individuals who are doing work for me. I don't think that's too unreasonable.
Aside from all of that, thanks for trying to suggest other options. I hadn't had anyone else even attempt it.
Really, you should probably also scale down the size of your maps as well. You're asking for 650 square kilometers of map to be made. That's over 250 square miles and is in fact larger than some countries. Offering nothing but credit is not worth it, especially since the vast majority of people who are sufficiently skilled to do this have their own large projects going on. I'd recommend either actually commissioning a map or even better, start learning world painter and do it yourself. It's never too late to learn a new skill
As I stated, I am not a business. This is a hobby. To expect me to pay for something which people already do for fun and for free is ridiculous. I know that others create massive projects with their friends and with individuals interested without needing to pay each other. This is Minecraft, not me trying to develop a whole new business and game. What something is worth to you is not universal. Obviously I'm spending a lot of time doing this for free, no one is paying me. Minecraft itself was an indie game. Most if not all the plugins were made for free and those can take hundreds of hours for people to learn and then to code. Thankfully my husband is a professional software developer and can create our plugins in much less time.
The reason I want four maps is so that I can create an initial world and several expansion worlds. These are for RPG not unlike other mmo-rpgs which have expansion worlds. It's not unreasonable at all. I think you're just scared of something that you have no need to be if you have the skills. Also, I have actually been learning World Edit, VoxelSniper, World Painter and World Machine. As an owner I seek to be able to help and understand my projects. That does not mean I don't want or need help in order to complete the project. If it makes you feel better, I have in fact completed two maps. I just would like someone with more experience than myself to help.
Plus, I did finally receive several interests today. I think if you're not interested, that's fine. But sometimes in this world you have to be persistent for people to notice and take interest in a project. This applies to all things.
Thanks for jumping on the "attack the poster" bandwagon.
Edit: This will also be my last post where I justify what I am doing and why. If it weren't for the ToS saying plugins and mods can't be sold, none of this would happen. I don't see maps and builds as any different and really I think that's skating thin ice, too. Please just let me know if you're interested or not. All other posts will be ignored.
I make small worlds for minecraft server, only a few have i done big worlds, i am better with small maps anyways. I would be happy to make maps for you and in return get a rank on your server. Please PM me if you are interested in my maps, thanks.
