Well, after working on my bukkit server for about a week now, I’ve realized today that I’ve hypothetically wasted about a week of time. Seems attempting to reshape the world via WorldEdit was a noble cause; however, using TOGoS’s Minecraft Map Generator seems to prove a more benefit to my time as a whole… I’ve been able to create an initial starting land of 1600×1600 compared to my manually carved world of 400×400. Due to the nature of Minecraft, I will be able to constantly increase the map as I go along and fill it up (create a new map, paste that into the folder, then copy over the previous map files). This will reload/overlay the chunks for the old map onto the new map and poof, expanded. I initially attempted to create a 100,000 x 100,000 map….however, that would have taken about 53 hours to generate (no joke, I calculated it out). Thus, I have decided to take the expand a bit at a time route.

Well, it seems I’ve neglected this site long enough. I am putting together some more information to post up here, plan on updating my game library, and will work on creating my minecraft server for public viewing. Not to mention I’ve recently become highly addicted to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic… I’ve lost…so much sleep lately watching user videos, reading fanfics, and surfing deviantart for new images…but we’ll not get into that now.
Minecraft Server: I am currently setting up a bukkit server and working out the kinks. I currently have a world set up as flatland; however, it’s not what I need. Once I can figure out all the commands with WorldEdit I will begin on my Sprite World. I plan on creating giant neighborhoods of sprites in the game. Everything will be made by hand, I’m debating if I’m going to enable the flying mod or not. I may do it just in case I need to mass move sections around, but I plan on doing everything by hand. Sure…I could use a mod to just import the sprite in 10 seconds flat, but where’s the fun in that! Anyhoo, my ultimate goal is to create large sections with the sprites, with tracks set up allowing visitors to view sprites as they cruise along. My first section(s) will be that of My Little Pony….once again, back to the addiction.
In addition, I’ve been neglecting my FFXIV Linkshell as of late, and am planning on stepping down and letting one of the more active players take it over. I’ll still run the forums and the other WP front-end site that I never update lol.
My goal is to make this site 20% cooler, so I’m working on that now :) Stay tuned….to all those who aren’t actually watching what I write here!
