Oh yes I am back! This is a screenshot of the entirety of World 1-2 as seen from the sky. It is a sneak peak of the level. (click for a better view) Tomorrow I will hopefully upload a video of a walk through of the level.
I know I haven’t updated for a LONG time and for that I am sorry. I didn’t have motivation to work on it up until last week. And thus I worked for about 6 hours straight working on 1-2.
I also discovered the wonders of MCEdit which I am glad i decided to use because 1-2 would have taken forever to make :/
So now I am about to go to a Hip-Hop Karaoke night and hopefully upload a vid tomorrow :D
Wow. Just wow. Middle Earth recreated in Minecraft. Just makes me want to stop creating anything in Minecraft because it will no way be this amazing. Here is their website: http://www.minecraftmiddleearth.com/
The image hosting site I had all my pics uploaded to was deleted so I have re-uploaded them. This is especially for new followers who haven’t seen them yet. I haven’t worked on the map for a while due to starting a new job and other personal things. But I hope to work on it soon.
In the mean time watch a video on this map. Apparently more info on the project can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gxeowy79rqg.
So I am finishing University this semester and have two assignments to hand in before I finish. One due today (6/6/11) which I am still working on :/ and one due by the end of the week. So work on the map has ground to a halt (even though it wasn’t moving that fast in the first place).
In the meantime I thought I would post pics on the work in progress that is 1-2.
As you can see I need to dig out the space between the roof and floor but this is a work in progress. I did leave room up the top of the level to run above it as you can in the game but I am not sure how I am going to allow access up to it. Ah i love the lighting in this shot.
This shot shows the first ? blocks in the level. Once again I have used set back dispensers but this time they are in the wall. Just pressing one of the pressure plates on the ground sets of all 5 of the blocks. This is because they connect and there is no way of setting off one without setting off others.
Also tonight I discovered this recreation of Super Mario Bros. in Minecraft and through discussion with the person that uploaded the video I thought of the use of a custom texture pack. Seeing as I have already created 1-1 I decided that I will continue using the original Minecraft blocks and when I have finished at least world 1 create my own texture pack (will have to find out how to do this) and compare the two to decide which one I prefer.
Just thought I would update the blog and let people know what is going on. I will leave you with the Yogscast’s latest adventure map video. This map is very Zelda-esque.
p.s. This is clearly part of procrastination on my part :/
