One; The map was deleted by my server, which also seemed to delete itself. We’re restarting, as I’ve stated multiple times on the actual project itself. We’re letting people help build this – which should speed it up a lot. The new version will be started 1/06/2012 or 2/06/2012 on the server. I’m not doing a silly ‘post apps’ thing, it’s simply just post a comment asking to join – I generally judge on the structure of your comment in terms of maturity and if you’re likely to be a griefer.
Two; Yes! It will be a role play server. People have asked me this a few times, and I’m quite a role player myself. I haven’t any ideas on the topic at the moment other than it’ll be an RP server, so any ideas are appreciated. You will NOT all be a human turned into a Pokemon, that’s the main character’s role from the game. It’s simple – You’re a Pokemon, and you’re either a solo explorer or in a rescue team (or other jobs)
Three; I was originally making a texture pack for the map, but Aximili made one instead. Kudos to him for the help he’s provided by pitching in his various ideas and I hope to have him building with us.
Four; We are NOT building the zones separately, look at the wonder map on Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time / Darkness / Sky. It’s an entire world, and we’re making that full world. I don’t want to be making zones separately, especially seeing as this will be a role play server one day.
Five; The server we’ll be building on will be up at all times (24/7) without a white list. This does not mean you’ll join and automatically be able to build – If you’re a builder, then you can build, but if you aren’t a builder then you can join and look around.
Six; Weekly map releases! I will be releasing updates of the map each week, with schematics of each zone. Builders / helpers will get the map on their request, whenever they want it as they’re dedicating their time to help build it. Another reason for weekly releases, is that if the server decides to die again, we'll have a map from the previous week (or from a helper who requested the map) to go from.
Seven; The type of builders we are looking for are ones who are able to dedicate a few hours per day (or so) There is not a specific list, each person can work on what they think they can build or do. Yes, pitching ideas also means you’re listed as a builder (helper, whatever)
Trip wire: (new Minecraft update) can be used in dungeons for monster houses, as it apparently triggers redstone (could trigger pistons) which could open up holes where mobs drop through, representing a Monster House!
Note Block: I'm planning to have each zones theme made and placed under the zone, obviously made of note blocks, when a pressure plate is stepped on (or when a button is pressed) it will start playing the theme of the area. I think this would be a good idea, as it'd add that nostalgic feeling from the game.
Aximili: There will be a few skinners for this project. Aximili was the first, and is still helping. As stated in the information section, he has made a texture pack for the project (which we're using for it) and he has now begun making skins.
List of skins (so far):
TheOriginalBaconMan: Second skinner who offered to help; from what I've seen, she is most popular for her HD skins (which mind you are amazing - check them out!)
List of skins (so far):
ReplayTyHeretic: This person suggested that we make zones / redecorate zones for each major and minor event in the year. We have been talking about it on Skype, and have made 3 decisions (for now)
Easter: Shaman's Village (Explorers of Sky) and the mountains that follow the village. I have forgotten the name of the dungeon on the mountain, but you'll be able to recruit a Shaman (A few long time players will be allowed to change characters to a Shaman if they want to) for the time being. This event will last for 5 days.
Halloween: Open up the future world (you'll know what the future world is about half way through Explorers / Time / Sky - It's where Dusknoir grabs you and takes you to the future. You will have to treck from Dusknoir's dungeon all the way to Dusk Forest to get a portal back to Treasure Town. This event will last for 7 days.
Christmas: Redecorate Treasure Town, with the obligatory Christmas Tree. Open up Blizzard Island to the public (Blizzard Island will be permanentely open to the public after it is released on the first Christmas of the server being up) This event will list for 7 days
Miss_Rose: She suggested an idea for the bulleting board - Of course there will be a fugitive and rescue one, but she also suggested putting up a trading board.
IE; This is the format which will be used
Dungeon & Floor / Area: Beach Cave, F1
Item you want: Apple
Item you're trading: 100 Poke
