I have no idea where to start on this article, but I'll drop a few things down to get you updated.
Before we start, I need idea's about


1. Story
2. Idea
3. Alliances
4. Dungeons
5. Maps
6. Classes
7. Server
8. Recruitments
9. Contact

1. Story
Before Minecraft really got a hit, i used to play on WoW servers, mainly private servers.
I played for months before getting accepted in the GameMaster Staff, who took me on a different level playing the game.
I found it so interesting on how a group of people managed to get a 3D old fashion style game to become the most played and dedicated games ever build. Not to mention how fast the expanded the game endlessly!
Minecraft stole my soul a year ago, making my life miserably nerdy behind the screen looking at 8bit blocks on some freakingly weird map who actually looked like Lego but more.. square!

I build castles (Who didn't O.o), Churches, towns, villages, houses, massive redstone constructions and so on with a level of detail that got me complimented a lot! I have a maniac behaviour when it comes to details, it's mainly what minecraft is al about to me. I play the game because I want the things I build to be real, like it would be in real life.
Then I saw this video who initially made me laugh, but then realized... why not?!

Anyway, my point is easy to understand, I want World of Warcraft in Minecraft!!!

2. Idea
I did some research on whether people already worked on a similar project or not...
The answer is YES, but some are just towns, area's and dungeons. I want to put those together!
I will try contact most people with great builds already made to ask for there corporation in making this happen.
Some projects we might be interested in:
IceCrown: http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/icecrown-from-world-of-warcraft/ - rjminebuilder
NaxxRamas: http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/naxxramas/ - Mcholypotato
StormWind City: http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/stormwind-city-153375/ - BalderKH
or -
StormWind City: http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/stormwind/ - Nessy27
Gates of IronForge: http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/gates-of-ironforge/ - Mcholypotato
Scarlet Monastery: http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/scarlet-monastery/ - Theshadowwolf89
Darnassus: http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/darnassus/ - Nessy27

3. Alliances
We will still use the standard sides: Alliance and Horde.
When progress is being made, we will have some codes developed to gain a more successful experience in cloning WoW with Sides, Races and Classes.

4. Dungeons
This will be a hard step to make, but I have managed to create great explorative dungeons with timed events using mainly redstone and FalseBook. There are easier ways but I was experimenting. My server loved it and we had over 400 runs (Till1.0.0 came out the map had to be renewed)
This won't be a priority at start.

5. Maps
This is probably gonna be the main focus when building this project up.
The main thing about it is that it should be 1:1 scale.
Every detail found in the real world of warcraft maps will be turned into blocks.
As you might know, every race starts in a different starting point. Somehow we will make it possible to have races and classes. The sky is the limit :)

6. Classes
Currently this is what I have in mind, but I am very open to suggestions!

hunter - bow (Can be enchanted by gaining skills)
warrior - axe (can be enchanted by getting stone/iron/gold/diamond)
palladin - sword (can be enchanted by getting stone/iron/gold/diamond)
priest - stick (Can be enchanted by gaining skills)
rogue - string (Can be enchanted by gaining skills)
shaman - hoe (can be enchanted by getting stone/iron/gold/diamond)
mage - Ender Pearl (Can be enchanted by gaining skills)
Death Knight - Sword (can be enchanted by getting stone/iron/gold/diamond)
Druid - Glass Bottle (Can be enchanted by getting various potions)
Warlock - Gold Nugget (Can be enchanted by gaining skills)

7. Server
I currently have no server besides my main laptop who is 24/7 online with 16Gb ram, 15Mb network and a i7 1.8ghz core.
Renting a server is not a problem, within a week time we can have a pretty neat dedicated server. (hetzner.de)
Also a webserver will be rented to handle email accounts, website and maybe a backup server to safe the map in case of HDD/network failure.

8 Recruitments
We will need quite a few people.

Project Leaders: (Checking works, assigning jobs, helping in problems, keeping order)
- PVTD
- (US timezone prefered) [Open]
- (EU timezone prefered) [Open]

Developers: (Mainly website and/or core works)
[Multiple Open Spots]
[A friend might work on this too, a Java Jedi!]

Designers: (Drawing very detailed works and performing them ingame)
[Multiple Open Spots]

Map Builders: (Building the terrains for the world, probably the hardest job as the map is 1:1 scaled)
- PVTD
[Multiple Open Spots]

More Staff ranks will come soon. We need things to get started before we can actually recruit more.
The number of slots available now is to be determined on how active and work speed is.

In order to apply to this project you must have a minimum requirement.
  • You must be over 16y old (Except if you can prove your maturity. Show us your experience)
  • You must have done a few projects before (Doesn't need to be posted in this forums, but I need prove, find a way)
  • You should know basic commands of Essentials Mod and basic server core.
  • You should tell something about yourself to get me to know you (Age, where you live, how long you play and all that stuff)
  • Your English should be understandable. Even I have trouble, but I can express myself with ease.
  • You can have alien roots.


9. Contact
For the time being I will be using my gmail till we found a good website domain for the project for the mail server.
Email
Gmail: [email protected] (prefered)
Instant Messaging
MSN: [email protected] (prefered)
Skype: charles.dkd

you can also contact me in this forum. But I am more frequent on my gmail and MSN.

Remember, we are all friends, rules will be up once we start the project with 1 or 2 other Project leaders to have a more fun time instead bad energy between staff.

This will be updated frequently.

We would recreate the whole map! Every single detail will be in it. This might take a very long time, but also a massive promissing project :)
