Minecraft: Big Group Build
« on: December 31, 2011, 05:19:22 pm »
Hello Everyone! I would like to get a big (ginormous would be a better word here) group, AGOA, build going on the server. I know we can do it, I have (as of a couple weeks back) seen almost everybody's work on the server (and now a quick glimpse at the map) and I know we can pull something like this off for sure.

I have a few ideas, but I want to hear what you guys can come up with, so I want everyone (and I mean everyone) to post at least (and I mean at LEAST) one idea for a giant build we can do.

Please don't make post like "A giant castle!" Provide specifics ideas on what you want it to look like, an overall theme. What kind of things will there be inside it? What kind of geographical setting?

An example would be a dwarven city under all the weird mountains on the map at (500, 0). We can have large majestic entrances. Partly hollow out the inside for huge walkways, halls, lava falls. A HUGE throne room with walkways hanging above an enormous fall. We can make a labyrinth of traps and a maze (maybe a sort of obstacle course thing?) below it that leads to the tomb to the ancient dwarf king. A nice port on one of the lake sides would look great as well, or both.

Again, EVERYONE POST YOUR IDEAS HERE and lets make the most AWESOME thing ever! We are the Awesome Group of Awesomeness after all!

I've  kind of been in charge of the nether. I'm attempting to make an easy system of walking between two places. I would like to make a city somewhere, and make some cool crap at the spawn. Moar crap I guess. That is all.
I am the admin. That is all.

The nether is hard to work with as a group, if your not an admin. There is too much lava and stuff to kill you in there. But I suppose it is possible to do, if we op everyone that is helping. Also, if you like I can help in the nether as well.

And, Greg, any specific ideas for what we could build in the nether? What theme for the city? Anything? xD

Well, actually... there are vertical and horizontal version of the pusher... we could make all the paths in the nether transport system work with them :D

That would way faster, and just simply epic because pistons are epic xD

This, however, is not much of a group build, although I do like the idea.

Dwarven city? Already in the works (my place :D )

Here's my idea: A Mountain city

A city built along and on top of a cluster of mountains. It would have many types of buildings, some built into the side of the mountains and some just on the sides or top. We could make shops, houses, meeting halls, a lighthouse, a citadel, ect, ect.

It would be cool to make it in a snowy area. But if no really tall hills are found there, then there's a pretty good spot out on that large island at 2400, -2100 ish.

That way people can work on a lot of small things and use their own building style and build the types of things they like to build. If it was just one large building then it might be hard for people to work together to make it look good and have something that everyone liked.

Haha, Morgan, your awesome!

Skyler, I like your idea, but I'm not sure how well we can build something like that because of the height limit (those mountains like quite tall, we will have to check it out), that is why I said inside the mountains, so we don't have to worry about the height limit as much. Nevertheless, it's a good plan!

Anyone else?

I will soon put up a poll to people to vote for the best project idea (maybe when the thread is a week old, or in a week) so post your ideas folks!

I would suggest that we make the entirety of MYST, but that's been done.

So we should do Riven!  I would definitely hop on board if that was our project.

Dwarf Fortress you say!?  Of course Ive had TONS of fun in that game..

Made myself a bloody mess most the time..  mostly mass depression in the 4 or 5th years from assaults and dwarfs not following blocked off areas...

Ill share some of the RP story telling Ive done with it.  A couple buddies of mine in Virakar swapped from year to year and RP'ed the story.

Warning the links will be image intensive (large pictures)

Morgan, I think you might slightly (just slightly) obsessed with those games :D (they were good though, I'll admit). Unfortunately, that is currently being done by someone so I think that is out.

Ss, Morgan, I think you are do for a new idea? xD
