[WIP] (Insert Name Here) Haven't come up with a name yet...
[!!!Important!!! Read all of this post, then please tell me if I should open up applications for the certain jobs, or just leave it open for anyone! Also, does anyone know the map size of when a map begins to become laggy? I need to limit myself on how big this is!]
Hello, forums. I am just a Minecrafter with a big ambition. I want to create a massive open-world zombie survival sandbox vanilla SSP map. I don't know if this has been done before, but I want to do it, and I'm determined. Please keep reading this post if you're interested. I'm very open to suggestions.
I am a huge zombie fanatic. I love the idea of zombies, and I love the idea of surviving them. I've always wanted to create my own scenario, and what better tool to use than Minecraft? What I want to accomplish is to create a huge open-world zombie survival game, such as DayZ or Project Zomboid, in Minecraft. Problem is, I don't think I can do it alone. I need all the help I can get!So far I haven't done much. Mostly just terraforming this:
[Red spots are planned landmarks and locations]
And if you're an experienced terraformer, and you look at this and laugh, please keep in mind I am fairly new to terraforming. So tips are much appreciated.
Where You Come In You may be wondering what you can do to help with this project right now, since it's in such an early state. Well...
People who can help me with writing the story for this map, because I don't want your everyday generic zombie movie plot. I have a basic idea in mind, but I'm not the best writer in the universe. Builders
I am also in need of builders. People who can build houses and variations thereupon for different towns and cities, and also for significant landmarks that will be in the map. I'm not talking about building on a server, if that's what you have in mind. My computer is not near capable enough to run a playable server. It would be best if you could just send me screenshots or just a world file with your structure(s) on it. Texture Artists
Another thing I want for this map is a custom resourcepack, so I can catch the atmosphere I really want in this map. I don't need texture artists right away, but it would be nice to get a head start on it now.
SuggestionsI am extremely open to suggestions. Feel completely free to send me PM's or just leave me a comment. I'll take suggestions on anything into account.
Ending StatementWell, that's pretty much it for now. I will update this post every couple of days or every week with updates on progress. To some people this post may feel a bit early and premature, and it kind of is. I just really want to get a head start on the work for this map. I also want to get this post out there to motivate me. If I ever give up on this project, I'd have the shame of giving up on it because I made this post. And nobody likes shame.Thank you for taking your time reading this, I hope to hear from you guys soon.
