    Yay, grass paths! We were on hiatus for a long while.

    The Advent of 1.9... *cue angelic choir*
    gpblock

    With the advent of 1.9 bringing new Grass Paths to the table, we became really inspired to work long and hard on the tower. We began with the necessities, yes, those bare necessities. Ones which add variation and theme to this building. The tower looked rather bland before we made some modifications to the main tower, the walls, and structure surrounding the main tower. The ajah towers are in need of a few changes, we still have one grassy area that needs sprucing up, and the interior is coming slowly. But all in all, we have this growing feeling that we've almost finished this bit. It's rather exciting!


    Everything past this point is quickfire so here goes!

    - We've got a new signature, one that actually looks cool.

    - After "reeeally" looking hard at the map, we figured we built the whole thing wrong anyways. Oh, well! *CL

    - The tower has 2002 beds in the main Tower alone.

    - Of those rooms, there are enough chests to cause entity lag.

    - There are 4 secrets and 2 secret passageways.

    - We have hand-placed over 700,000 blocks. My hands hurt.

    - Q: Does anyone know good methods of windows for stone buildings or examples we could see?


    Want to help?

    Whew.. So who wants to help out? We've concluded that one way to circumvent griefers is to have those with an eye for what we're building to submit builds! That's right, you heard me!


    I thought you guys didn't want help?

    The team is smaller at this point in time. Just me and Gouda_Boy. And frankly, we really wanted to have people contribute, just those darned griefers messed up a lot of our early works, (and we're ultra-pissed off for eternity about that), but we feel that by doing these submission based contributions, you can assist without us panicking.


    What do you need?

    You can be credited and included in the world of the Lord Dragon by making houses, ships, monuments, interesting locations, travel stops, villages, and other things that you think would be nice to include. If you're interested, we can give you the guidelines we will be looking for. We're going to start small with these submissions, so don't build anything enormous or complicated. You'll probably also want OzoCraft resource pack to build with. We are under the impression it will be updated, but if by June nothing happens, we'll modify it ourselves. Shouldn't be too hard. Just a png file right? ... right?

    You know... Sometimes things go well. Sometimes they don't!

    Other times. Everything works perfectly. Others, for the worst.


    This is neither.


    It is merely... EPIC!


    Thanks for your support, if you happen to see this thread. Please return to the beginning to watch it.

    After having been away for two years... We are returning.


    Sorry. I myself went to serve an honorable full-time LDS mission. It's important spiritual experience that I had, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. (Yes, even working on this "supposedly" dead project.)


    If all the excitement from two years ago is dissipating, fret not! We're back in action and will likely have a revival video to showcase The White Tower 2.0, (first design below was scrapped). Sadly, much of the team, (including me), is/was either out of contact, or in college, or is now supporting a family. Such is life.


    Now, we never had an actual server that we built upon. We always did a LAN or hooked-up via Hamachi servers. It wasn't easy. We as the team knew each other personally and I trusted them to build and not grief. If you're wondering why I haven't responded to any of your requests to participate, understand that we as a team aren't the snazzy top dog MCer's out there with fancy doodads that save their servers, (automatically and with resets), nor do we want them. Griefers still exist. With that in mind, we're very careful with who we add. Plus, we added to our PMC that we are not going to make it Public. Sorry, it's just the way this part of the infinite internet is going to be.


    Now for those who want to collaborate, we may/may not contact you on whether or not you get included.


    I understand someone wanted to implement a mod, but this is being built "vanilla", a mod wasn't being considered in the beginnings. The newest updates that I've recently poured over seem to make it even less needful for a mod, (horses, hay, etc...).


    All we'd like currently is your support! Thanks for those who do. We'll be in touch.

    Dragonmount and Tar Valon might be difficult to do due to their size in comparison with the rest of the architecture (height limit).

    I'd suggest starting out small, maybe Emond's Field/Two Rivers and progress from there


    But sometimes going BIG and then going small, is so much easier.

    Furox: So... How did it go?

    *You see an explosion.*

    Furox: That bad huh?

    Builder: Yeah, there was an accident in some of the buildings. Sorry about that!

    Furox: Y-y-you! :angry: *Black screens as you hear punches being landed, a cat screeching, and various explosive effects.*

    Furox: Don't worry audience. Stephen, Stephen... Edit that out Stephen...!

    EDIT: Made changes to the front post.

    Well now that we've had nearly 100 views on our very first video, we are very excited to begin working on our second one! I invite you to keep updated with our project, as we have a few things being finished. We will likely make a "Meet the Team" video, and show you our updated landscapes/projects. And we can finally check-mark stuff!

    EDIT: Those darn Minecraft updates! I love them so much that it always makes me want to change everything that I pass by in our world. (That slows everything down...) Anyways happy building!

    Mother of God, this is insane. By far the most ambitious building project I have ever seen. I remember the first time I picked up Eye of the World, and I thought that was great. Still, I never thought the books had this big of a following until I saw 44 million copies on this page.

    EDIT: Have you read the snippet of Memory of Light that was recently released? I can't wait for the finale! *squeals


    Ambitious doesn't even cover half of it... It's not just some, oh hey let's build this. It's *deep voice prepared* ... epic!
    I did read it. And I can't tell you how excited I am to finally get my hands on it!!

    Well well, nobody is interested anymore in something like THIS?!?! :





    Seriously people go look at my Planet Minecraft as well for a better view of photos.

    AND YES... We are now making videos! We finally got some software for recording, and we hope it turns out well!

    I've seen somebody make the White Tower, and I thought THAT was impressive, but an undertaking of this magnitude... Good luck with this.


    Thank you! And to be honest, I've been so busy making mine, I don't know much about the other people trying small projects.
