I haven't forgotten about the server. Its just that work has caught up with me to the point I couldn't generate the new map fast enough. Though I managed now to dump enough time within this week to load +1000000 chunks and about 3/4 done loading a 10000 x 10000 (2) area which is the first step before building. I've also taken notes about the mass changes between 1.7.x to 1.8.x in terms of feature functions like in the first few updates into 1.8, the Giant's AI was removed, making them pretty much oversized punching bags. This leaves the server owners/plugin workers having to manually configure an AI from a plugin to make use of them like MythicMobs and other properly functioning plugins. This leaves us in a bit of pressure since with bukkit's takedown incident, the main source of plugins declined greatly as not that many of the primary coders keep up with their stuff anymore. Of course, you can still find them in spigot, but the ones that made the server well functional have already jumped ship. Anyways, i'm also debating on if I should use a floating island spawn, or make a normal one separate from it. Feel free to give me some inputs on that before I start the spawn building plans.

Eh, it really depends on what kind of server you want to do

if you want to make a faction server (PvP or not), you'd rather want to make it in the continent, so people creating guilds can go into an exploration fast, and find a place for their faction fast as well for its beginnings

if you're gonna make it more solo-oriented, an isolated island as spawn is a good idea, but at least put teleporters or free boats so they can leave and start their adventure!

that's what I think

Sadly, its Premium only.

Also got some rapid replies about where spawn should be made. I'll consider making spawn normally this time inland once I get everything loaded. Thanks for the fast feedback. If there's any questions you need to ask about the server, you can message me. Till then, stay tuned.

So I should get on, mentioned I was silenced before, destroy all the forests, and try to repeat it, cheat my body through a block, spam 'pickles', ask for a max enchant pickaxe and hop in lava and ask for it again, dye by ephemeral chickens and ask for it AGAIN, then ask to be mod, and finish it off by saying firetruck. Yep, I'm going to have a fun time. :roll:

(If I'm not really busy, that is)
I'm totally not serious by the way. Muahaha.

I personally love the way you made it before. If you were to do that with just more islands would be fantastic!

Sure, if you want Loctav on my ass and removing this topic out of GD then banning me for trying to do so.

(No, i'm not going to make the server cracked nor am I in the mood to fight with him again. I don't want to start a war in GD.)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------- ( 7 / 28 / 15) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyways, i've finally completed the first step of preloading well over 1 million chunks @ 9.10 GB. With the final checks, i'll be moving to step two with generating dungeons and custom buildings. As much as it would be nice to save stuff from the old world, it would be much fairer to start everyone fresh. I'll keep you posted on the progress.

If I can work nonstop on the dungeons, I can have up to 1500 or more loaded. After that, building spawn.Then there's plugin testing and adjustments, setting up shops, custom items, reworking the "mob bosses" and so on. Might be a while, but I expect to push towards October at earliest if things go well otherwise, I might wait till around December with 1.9 already in showcase to be released soon. Anyways, I just have to hope and pray I don't screw up a 9 GB folder of files to play with cause small errors in a huge cluster of files are nightmares to deal with at this stage.

Its been some time since the last news update post. So far, about 330 dungeons have been generated. I went ahead to take a quick look at the results and i'm pretty impressed.





Hope to see some more interesting ones during another inspection. :D

(Note: The dungeon in the first screenshot was too large to fit into the window.)

Please tell me the ice dungeon is made of packed ice and these dungeons are apporatively themed underground too.

Shimeji detected.

I don't think its going to be made of ice inside. I took a quick peek but not that far in. Maybe i'm wrong but we'll see...

For now, i'm generating the Easy Dungeons. Almost half way done now too. I decided to break it down differently. 300 Hard Dungeons, 300 Easy, 300 Mazes, 300 Caverns, 300 ??? or till I run out of space before doing so. While that is being done, we're doing some plugin hunting and testing to keep/replace the previously used ones.



Edit: Also forgot to note. Dungeon sizes will vary to "planned" scales by chunks. Hard dungeons you can expect dimensions up to 40 in Length and Width with up to 7 or 8 floors deep. Easy dungeons, about 20 Length and width with 3 to 5 deep. Caverns and Mazes, I may go with up to 30 x 30 x 3 ~ 6 preset. I'll figure that out soon. Also, expect to see Dark Magician again once Mythic Mobs is back up and running after the test phase.

Oh no! >.< Not Dark Magician!!!! LOL I cri evertiem

No need to worry about whitelisting right now so feel free to join and have friends over for the time being. I'd also like to keep it open as much as possible in normal means. If anything changes, i'll have it stated in the new opening post.

Edit: 600 Dungeons down so far with steady progress. Moving on to Mazes with a set max possible size of 30 x 30 x 3 ~ 6.
