Level 39 : Artisan Pirate
Boombeard-smallpng


Boombeard-Titles_r_cpng

The dreaded pirate captain Boombeard, scourge of the seven seas, infamous for his long history of piracy, swindling, smuggling, and TNT griefing, is rumored to have set his hideout in a far away, strange archipelago in this remote area of the Caribbean o a place where the weird brand of magic that diverted planes in the Bermuda Triangle is at work, and might be responsible for odd islands, insane vegetation, explosions, perverted traps, and silly puns.

What would be a better place to engage in crazy, senseless fighting? Come on those crazy lands here from a large flying airship, walk the plank, and if the drop is not enough to kill you (well, it won't), the other mutineers who had the misfortune of sharing your fate will. Or maybe you will. But there can only be one.

Boombeard-Titles_r_cpng

Boombeard's Battle is a Survival Games map, made by a building team of staff and regular players on the Mountainview Minecraft server for the sheer pleasure of making a map, for fun, for glory, and for the Planet Minecraft / MCSG Survival Games building contest.

It's a water-islands, 320-block radius Survival Games map with fully custom, terraformed terrain, full of secrets and traps, with exactly 421 hidden chests sprinkled all over the world.

Come survive with us, on mountainview-minecraft.net, or, maybe, who knows, one day, on www.minecraftsurvivalgames.com ! And feel free to download the map (the chests are loaded with default content, it can be played in Vanilla or in Bukkit without customization)! Feel free to download the map, to play on it, to host it (CC BY-NC-SA license, please give credit where it's due :) ), and, if you like it, to give diamonds and kudos in the comments!

Give me a link to your adventure map once it's finished, might be fun to try out :)

I have an important question. Is there any way I can change the game mode without reseting the seed?When I copy the seed then the ships and all disappear.

One more. Is there a command to reset the map. Creepers blew up the pirate ship where the players spawn. I am in offline mode, not online.

I like the npc village the most. Nice detail, reminds me of Pirates of the Caribbean.

1- Press Escape 2- click "Open to LAN" 3- change the gamemode to creative and cheats to true 4- /gamemode 1

 also, download a backup file and put it in the provided "backups" (in .minecraft file)  folder. when you need it just copy it to your saves file.

Haha, yeah, maybe it should have... But judges decided otherwise. We're still pretty happy to be ranked 6th over 484 for a first contest submission ever.

And set to win the next context we enter :D

Thank you :-) Yeah, we wanted to do a game start that was a bit original and gave the visitors a nice, overhead outlook of the map. I was a bit worried that it being somewhat unorthodox might turn off some people, but it actually works pretty well in a real game.

Thank you for your diamond! :)

Thanks!

From what I understand, the map requirements do not specify any builder limit for the map making team, it only states that, in the case of victory, only 8 accounts might win a VIP / Diamond / Gold MCSG account.

The people listed on the credit did varying amount of work in the map anyway, from just a bit of assistance to terraforming and building complete islands... I submitted this entry late in the night and I was too tired to sort, movie credit style, all people according to their role.

So, I don't think there is a problem, will be up to us to give the core builder's list in the event we win a prize.

Well, the spawn ship has lots of fences for the ship ropes, the big tree has lots of leaves, and the volcano has lots of spider webs for the smoke... All of those are semi-transparent blocks that can be hard on older / slower GPUs.

A few tips to get FPS up:

* Switch graphics to "fast" instead of "fancy"
* Use Optifine
* If this still not works, reduce view distance

Enjoyed making it, enjoy seeing it here, and can't wait to be able to enjoy playing it with lots of people!

Wow, your Hell Unleashed map is a truly impressive map, congratulations and diamond for you :-)

Anyway, the volcano eruption was done with Voxel Sniper, using the sb brush with the mmp performer:

/b sb mmp s200 g1

/vr 0

/v 11

Set the /vs range to limit your sniping range and easily place blocks floating in the air, and adjust the "seed" parameter (the s200 thingie above) to make the lava more or less dense.

Be sure to use a no-physics performer (p after the performer name): if you even trigger a block update close to a floating lava block, it will lead to a chain reaction collapse of the whole thing (yeah, this happened once during the map building, good thing I had a backup)
