Introduction



The Shadow of Israphel Map Project is/will be a full replication of the Yogcast's 'Shadow of Israphel' series map. It is generally being built in the order of the content shown in the series. It is an attempt to be an exact, if not similar re-construction of the original.

Update #8 : 12/29/2012 7:39:42 am12/29/12

Check out my other project Schematics which is starting to include a lot of things!

Some new images coming up, worked on these with ipodguy who actually continued my project for a little while on his own. Will update the download soon.


Grimjaw's Ship, finally got a good cinematic shot of it to be able to build it


The complete robot head seen in flashback scene


Madame Nubescu's Powdering of de face room which joins up with her room at Verigan's Hold Carnival


Captain_Hubert's ship

Update #7 : 11/26/2012 8:07:23 pm11/26/12

(New Update):

This is where I am currently with the hand. As always 100% so far didn't take me that long, the last few gaps I need to fill with blocks and bars are fairly hard as they are not viewed close, so requires some estimation, till the viewing is right compared to the video. My estimations normally get it 100% right, you have to build what you can as you go, then fill in the gaps and hope it matches.

I have done part of the inside so far. But here are the screenies. Also remember there is no sand, since these are schematics, so they will be imported into the map after terraforming. I think this is also nice as people can put them in their maps.

Update #6 : 11/25/2012 7:30:02 pm11/25/12

I think I take replicating to a whole new level. I should be one of those replicators from Stargate. I would say this is 99% accurate, I tried really hard. The back areas of the grassy area, you do not seee in any videos, so I cannot do any of that.

I figured out the streams were around each side. It took some estimations with areas, but if they usually match up with somewhere else, then I know I got it right. I still need to put the hedges around the inner edge and this is done.

One of my best so far I would say.

Update #5 : 11/23/2012 7:08:58 am11/23/12

I have officially come back, even though I have said this a lot of times. I have all episodes downloaded. Survival Island, Original Series, Shadow of Israphel and mods featuring the Shadow of Israphel World.

You can follow any updates or images I post on the new facebook page
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Shadow-of-Israphel-Map-Project/469992929706551

So far I have built Granny Bacon's Funeral Chruch featured in the special and I rebuilt The Yogcave with the Tower 100% exact. You can see the images of these on the Facebook.

For next couple of weeks I will be building schematic constructions, so they won't be on the official world I built, but I will probably post them under a separate flat world. With schematics I thought it was neat idea as people can put them in their own worlds.

When importing them in my map later, it will be easier as I can terra-form any terrain before, it is harder to cut them out once they have been placed in.

Project Returns : 07/29/2012 6:46:50 am7/29/12

As of today I am downloading all the series Youtube videos. You have your hardcore map maker back.

Project Over.2 : 05/29/2012 5:00:38 pm5/29/12

People stop pestering for an update, I have already stated I have stopped work on this. I no longer have the time and it is to much to do. Just take what you have here and be lucky you have it. What also annoys me is people saying things are missing. Of course things are missing, look at the scale of it, you also need comprehend the amount of time it takes to do something like this.

The Yogscast have changed a lot since I did this, one reason I stopped this was I thought the series was coming to an end and they would release their own map, which is not happened yet. I do not enjoy their videos as much anymore. They feel way to artificial now and rarely even post shadow of israphel videos.


Maybe over summer if I ever get bored I might put something together for you guys.

Project Over : 08/05/2011 9:41:16 am8/05/11

I will be finishing the project as of today. Reasons being? The series is coming to a climax soon enough and they will be doing their own release. I think people have most of what they want from the series. I also want to put this time into being more creative, creating my own adventure maps.

I did have some big changes coming up, but I don't want to spoil the series or ruin the official release.

I am starting work on my own adventure map, which will be a fully detailed, quality, co-operative story which I hope to have a big outcome and have built up a lot of ideas already for.

Thanks for your support so far and keep enjoying this map!

Revision 8.1 : 07/26/2011 7:24:14 pm7/26/11

Revision 8.1 has been released. Additions, More construction on the Skylord Resort, Fumblemore's Tower has been put into Mistral City after I accidently removed it, Skull Pass finished, Secret room in Verigan's Hold built. Other minor additions and fixes, staircase in Windmill, Crops etc.

Thanks. Only wish I heard of tools/used Voxel etc. earlier! This was all hand built with 'Single Player Commands' before creative mode. Used World Edit for some terrain stuff - which I also wished I did a better job on. Check out my Schematics project as well.

Yes. The level of interest for this map dropped and The Yogscast stopped the series, so I saw no point in continuing. Always got projects keeping me busy outside of Minecraft!

Yogscast stopped a great series, but there is always hope for it to continue.

No. There is a lot more to this map if you read the description. There is no sign posts, finding the locations will rely on you knowing the series pretty well or just rewatching it. The paths are pretty obvious anyway.

His map is mostly mine, but yes he continues to update it. I would say most of my stuff is more diligent in places, where as he has always been able to whack stuff out quicker which is 'close enough'. Also most of the new stuff he just put in is from their leaked server map :)

If the Yogscast still continued their Youtube series I would continue this, but there is not much point there seems to be little interest in it; compared to back when I started.

I am currently making a Nostalgia Based soi map even though the series hasn't happened in a year. I am making to give the original Yog(Naught)s a reall time!

I am actually writing this to tell you that you don't need to work full time but perhaps as an, Off-side, project instead. If you need any help just reply, I would be glad to help. cjras

I have officially come back, even though I have said this a lot of
times. I have all episodes downloaded. Survival Island, Original Series,
Shadow of Israphel and mods featuring the Shadow of Israphel World.

You can follow any updates or images I post on the new facebook page
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Shadow-of-Israphel-Map-Project/469992929706551

So
far I have built Granny Bacon's Funeral Chruch featured in the special
and I rebuilt The Yogcave with the Tower 100% exact. You can see the
images of these on the Facebook.

For next couple of weeks I will
be building schematic constructions, so they won't be on the official
world I built, but I will probably post them under a separate flat
world. With schematics I thought it was neat idea as people can put them
in their own worlds.

When importing them in my map later, it
will be easier as I can terra-form any terrain before, it is harder to
cut them out once they have been placed in.

Sorry for delay guys, I can hardly fit much time in past month or so and
what time I do I want to spend it doing fun. As of today I have
downloaded all the Shadow of Israphel and original minecraft series
(except survival island) to my HDD in 720p, this helps a lot when
building.

What I noticed is Shadow of Israphel is on pause now
and is less frequent, so I can possibly catch up. I have a new gaming
computer, when I started this map I did all on crappy laptop that could
overheat and I have multiscreens for this shit.

What I need from
you guys is to compile links of videos of any mod videos they have of
Icaria and other places. I know they also did a blimp one which
travelled some areas. This would help me greatly.
