The new and spiffy server is getting fleshed out at a pretty darn good clip at the moment, so I thought I’d take today’s post to highlight how the place is lookin’ so far! There are a few details, so to avoid a heavy picture flood of a post, I’ll just focus on the /spawn town we got set up. Maybe try out that gallery option, I haven’t done that yet.
Oh, before I start, did you guys see the footage of thunderstorms and achievements in Minecraft? It’s only like a week away, tops from being added to the game. Plus. Snow and ice are back! Woot!
Now that I left you all dumbfounded after that clip, lemme proceed to show you images that are surely more lackluster in comparison -_^
Welcome to the Town Hall! Mayor_Quimby, presiding. He oversees all of the selling we perform, as all the sell chests from the Economy mod are located within this building. (Thus it is possibly the most popular :P) Beside you will see the Cake Shop (I still gotta names it) and the THT shop. As the genius bud of mine who built it didn’t give enough space to clearly make it a “TNT” shop. After some debate, the admin actually let sulfur be sold there at a hefty price.
The Cake Shop is not a Lie! (Possibly the soon-to-be actual name of the shop… hmm.) I constructed the outside myself outta brown wool, snow blocks, and red wool blocks for the red stuff on the top. Cherries? Candles? I dunno. Red Stuff. The building is a to-scale rendition of the actual half-cake block, pixel to blocky pixel. The Misses did all the interior decorating, I like what she done with the place. Good job, Madam!
Across from the town hall lies the Meat Wagon! Actually I dunno if it even has a name, but it’s the meat vendor. Think hotdog vendor, but Minecraft-style. The admin made this guy all himself. He made the roof the same way I would of, without me even sayin’. Great minds, man. Great minds!
Next to the Meat Wagon lies… oh flying Spaghetti Monsters. I made the dang thing now I forgot it’s fancy name. The Fuzzy Buzzy Ice Cream Factory? Fuzzy Bee? I’ll go with Fuzzy Buzzy. This was my contribution to vendor shops, and it focuses on ice-cream related stuff. (As ice and snow are rare or impossible to hold in your inventory/create currently.) It also sells slime balls, I called em Slimeball Sherbet–pronounced in the uppity “sore-bay” La Francis tone. 10 Minecraftolians! (Even made the Tigole and Furor flavor as an in-joke.)
This is inside Madam’s library. Yes, another library. This one is run by Belle the NPC, of course! Unpictured lies Sofie’s Flower Shop with Howl behind the corner, Misses-made as well. Anime fans will know know about those characters.
This little place is ‘hidden’ in town. I can’t reveal its location, but I can take a shot of it’s innards! This is the Open Mic, Open Mind cafe. I’d visit it more often, but the pumpkins… the walls and walls of laughing pumpkins mocking my haiku’s and limericks! Their unblinking eyes and ever-smiling grins! Orange visages of unending mocking tones! The horror! The horror! /shudder
Finally, here is the wood-working shop on the left, and the weapons and armor shop on the right. (The diamond stuff is being sold directly from the two NPCs on the roof.) In the back, the glassy stuff? That’s the subway entrance, has a bit of a Fallout 3 vibe to it, but even then that game had to base it upon something else so I could be wrong. Next to that is the Sand Co. Sand Castle Sand Shop (yes I just made the name up) and the Home Deco shop, full of dyes and wools. To wrap up the town, that ball is a fish shop and disco, and the wooden shop next to the cake is a… a shop. I think it sells clay. It’s a clay shop
And of course, Cloud Cutter being all epic in the background. (Got that day shot of it in, after all!)
Everyone is working on their own individual thang as well, maybe more shots of that stuff next week!
