(Part Two)


On a day when I needed a little cheering up, GreenDimond and GoldenHart kidnapped me and teleported me to this scene... complete with a bazillion bunnies hopping around. Love those guys. <3

Image

I don't know if I feel right calling Gerald a "replica" of the Easter Bunny, but here is Gerald, making an announcement about the upcoming Easter egg hunt on April 15th, and letting us all know he likes hugs! :D (Credit: GreenDimond)

Image

Speaking of Easter, some huge and strange looking alien egg showed up on the test server, asking for directions to the real server! You may want to steer clear of spawn, because if this thing comes in for a landing it's going to take some people out!

Image

Thanks for looking, thanks for replicating, thanks for recording, and thanks for playing!

Blue!! XOXO

Try that again? Not sure what you mean, my friend. Number of players? We're growing steadily and doing really well, especially considering the server is still so new. Slowest time is from restart (1:00am EST or 7:00am your time) to about 6:00am, but the numbers climb steadily throughout the day, with afternoons and evenings being the busiest. Earlier tonight (Friday night) we had an average of 25-30 players with a peak of 44. We'll take it! :D

Mobile users with very limited RAM will have a hard time connecting to our server, like most servers with more inventory options. However, my phone isn't that great and I can connect and play somewhat easily. When we built the server, we discussed our options and made careful considerations in order to try to give a little bit of variety to all kinds of users. Some servers have limited inventory and are more easily playable by mobile users, but don't have some features appealing to players who enjoy building and creating. We wanted a server offering survival play, as well as a server offering players the ability to build beautiful things. And if we only have 25 regular players who are there to build and settle in, I much prefer that over 50 noobs cluttering up spawn while picking at each other with wooden picks.

I present a gift for IOKA - modernised lighting at stadium, now it is properly lit up during the night.
Left over materials (lots of wool, dirt and cobble) owned by IOKA can be found in my locked chest at 96 x -76.
Made by placing wool slabs over torches. Minetest 0.4.15-dev has smooth lighting for everything, it looks fantastic in new minetest builds (and will be obviously included in minetest 0.4.16).

My construction of Hometown Map Building is more or less finished, building is opened for visits.
Map is rough approximation of 2000x2000 Hometown server world map published in this thread, has 20x20 size with scale of 1:100 (each node on map is 100x100 on server and represents biome of certain place). I decided to keep the building more or less simple, with government-like look, simple inside with maps and lamps as the only furniture to keep it simple. While it was intended to be government like, it also ended up monster-like.
Thanks IOKA for finding me a place to build, Kibbie, GreenDimond (road lighting) and others for contributing more materials allowing me to finish construction much sooner.

Fixer, I can't thank you enough for the wonderful additions and improvements - the stadium lighting makes a huge difference! When we build the new soccer field we will definitely use the lighting method you used with the football field. I agree with you, the smooth lighting looks fantastic!

We were pleasantly surprised by your map building, we knew it would be a nice build because we are familiar with your building abilities - but the map building surpassed all expectations. Beautiful build and cool feature for the server!

We appreciate all the creativity and knowledge you bring to our server, and we're glad to have you here! :)

I'm glad you liked. While I had some time I decided to carve 4 water tunnels connecting large bodies of water on server, this allowed me to perform first around city expedition on a boat, travel took me 14:30 minutes passing about 4400 blocks in distance.
Here is the map and list of tunnels I've added (unprotected, except one tunnel someone made).

I'm a huge fan of boat travel Fixerol! So naturally I approve of this project. That's why we made a building on and over water restriction since day one. And a reason why all my bridges (no mater how long) are high enough above the water for boat travel clearance. You are quickly achieving "Legend" status with all your awesome contributions to this server.
I appreciate you :)

I was going to wait until the weekly update to post pictures of the surprise I was given earlier this evening, but I'm so blown away and touched I have to share a sneak peek. For my birthday, GreenDimond thought of the most incredible project - and he was assisted by GoldenHart, kiko, IMS_BULLDOGS, and the rest of the team to make it come to life. It's a beautiful Hall of Guardians, and it's gorgeous...and HUGE! It has a very Egyptian feel to me. Not only was I surprised with this amazing build, but GreenDimond also made custom "costumes" for me for all the holidays, they wear like armor instead of skins. He even included a blankie and chicken soup costume. :D

I feel very spoiled and undeserving, hours and hours of time must have been put into this surprise, and I just can't believe the thoughtfulness and creativity. I also received virtual gifts that became very real to me because they show me others have taken the time to get to know me (Micah gave me a beautifully written message and coffee...HELLOOO, coffee?? That girl knows what I love!)

I love our team, and I adore the regular players who we have been fortunate enough to get to know over these past 5 1/2 weeks! Thank you all for making my birthday extra special. <3

(That's a little itty bitty micah standing in front of her Guardian statue, check out the size of these statues!!)

No worries, GD... we are going to have both kitties and pups on the server, unless we get hit with a trademark lawsuit, which is unlikely since we are not making a profit from the use of nyan. Removing nyan at this point would result in unknown nodes everywhere.

Just for the love of all that's holy, don't eat the pups. O.O

Yup, Nyan cat forever, a PB & J puppy just seems like a bad knockoff, something completely original would've been a better replacement, no offence meant to VannessaE.
