Hello, I am the moderator of an up-and-coming server called The New-World. It is not currently ready for players, so in the meantime, I'd like to get the page telling about the server set up (In the server section) but to do so, I'd like some server themed art. A little background info about the server, the server is a light RP server running the Towny Mod with nations/towns etc based on the concept of establishing settlements in a new world. The server also has a story about it written as things progress in the server (Essentially the story is a dramatized rendition of actual in-game events.)
Basically, for the server page we will be needing several different types of images, feel free to submit as many as you like. Artists will receive full recognition and be cited to their profile/website at the bottom of the page. You don't have to submit all of the images, or you can submit more than is required as, we may pick and choose art so we have a large assortment of different art types on the page. The specifications below are just what we'll be putting on the server page.
>One banner for the top of the page (This should be the largest image), to really give example of what the server is about. It should include the server name (The New-World) and the 3 main server attributes (PVP, Light RP, Nations). The rest is up to the artist's imagination.
>Several signature sized images. Stating the server name and it's three main attributes. The rest is up to you.
>A few Avatar sized images, for use in compact signatures. Try to fit either TNW on there somewhere.
>Section headings, basically creative headings to put at the beginning of each section. Try to make these about the length of the signature or banner, but much less height. We require the following texts. "Server Story, Server Nations and Towns, Server Administration, Signature Section, Artists' work used, Rules" Try to keep all of these the same theme. We will only be choosing one artist from this section to keep the page looking uniform.
Optional : I will love you forever if you make a nice looking GIF of a Minecraft city being established. Not just a time-lapse, but going through different styles and expansions, IE : Starting with an open Minecraft land area then going on to a basic settlement then slowly adding and removing until it is a major city.
Bonus points if you make it loop nicely, IE : something to do with the city being destroyed at the end then the land leveled, but feel free to do it any way you want.
Thanks again for your submissions, I look forward to them.
@voicelessbard Sure, I'd like to see something from you.
@Absolete Thanks man, those are nice!
@resurection Thanks that is much more clear.
@DirkManlee4 Yeah, I like your art style, feel free to submit something.
here are some uncolored ideas for like buttons or something. they would say stuff under them like "Rules" "Server Story" ect. i couldnt decide on a creeper face so i guess you could just pick one out. tell me what you think!
Nice man, I like them. My favorite creeper face would probably be the one above the text: "Creeper 2". If possible, think you could do one of the friendly/neutral mobs as well? I'd love to see those too. Keep it up!
Dear everyone, I regret to inform you that The New-World server has been taken down. It was not my decision and I apologize for asking you to submit work in only to have it not be used.
However, I will work on establishing a new server with the same title, and I will message anyone who may be interested at a time when such a server is going up. If you would be interested in providing art at such a time when the server goes back up please reply to this thread below, or message me privately via the forums. Once again, my apologies.
Thank you all for your time and effort.
Actually, I was considering hosting the server myself. I found a nice website which offers cheap reliable hosting (Same one used for the old server) And I'm a bit of a control freak so I'd rather have complete access and such. As well as the fact that most computers that are running other programs aren't well equipped to run a minecraft server as well as that is fairly CPU intensive. I appreciate your offer though and if things don't work out with the hosting I've found then I may take you up on your generous offer. I'll try to get some info your way if anything comes up.
