Hello PMC.
Sooo erh... 401 people have clicked on a button called subscribe on my profile. Not sure why, but it honestly comes at the worst time because I'm up to my neck in projects, so there is no time to think of a creative 400 Sub contest.
So I'll just be copying what other people do because this seems fun, and rather low-effort :')

So! As the title suggest:
In this thread you can ask me anything! Real name? Do I have a dog? What's the cheat code on your credit card? - You know. Questions :D

As a fun little thing you can add:
"Simple answer please." or
"Detailed answer please"

And as they suggest, I'll answer one with few words (1-4 sentences) and the other one I'll answer as best as I possibly can :D
Thank you so much for 401 subscribers though! You guys are really good at clicking buttons!
-Tom

I do have a few things that I really want to do before my lifetime comes to an end, and "lucky" for me, I have a really good motivator because I was born with a heart decease that will kill me someday. When is unknown to me, but I've learned to not let fear stand in the way of the stuff I want to do.

I want to create a music album. While I could just make it easy and write a few songs and then play some piano, quickly mix it and call it a day... Well I hate when people do that. I'm more into creating a punk album in a similar style to Blink-182. The target with the album is in no way to become a rock star or play lots of concerts and become famous. It's more so something I want to do because I feel that there isn't enough modern music that has that Blink-182 feeling. There's Pretty Vicious, and I really hope they get really big, but they only have 1 album out atm.

I also have a plan to finish university. If I do that, then I'll be the first in my family to get a higher education, and on top of that - I really want to be a teacher at a gymnasium, and if I had to die in the workplace, I wouldn't mind dying as a high-standing teacher.
Though I gotta admit that I have one big dream which is becoming a professor at a university. I am aware that it's basically impossible to become that, unless you're an abselout theoretical and instrumental god. Which Im not :'D

And while I'm not home atm. I have a pet mooshroom in my survival world, and I love it :D

A late reply, but who cares really. Yes, the reason I asked is that I remembered about your condition. It saddens me because you seem like a genuinely good person. But in a way, I suppose, it must keep you grounded in reality. The fact is, although all our journeys will be different, our roads lead to the same destination. That is the one thing we all have in common. And that is something most of us often tend to forget in the fuss of our daily lives.
With that said I wish you all of luck with your goals. Do whatever it is YOU want to do! University is tough! But seeing your motivation, I have no doubt you will manage.

And yes, mooshrooms rock!

Depends on what we are allowed to use for racing! >:)
If you were running to Neptune with your enormous leg mucles, you'd have to jump run to mars for a pitstop first, and so would I if I used my emense and strong legs! But if we were supposed to race with lemons?! I would build a lemon powered space-car that yeeted itself into space from a ramp, then activated the lemon-juice propelled rocket engines, thus allowing me to get close to the speed of light!

The big question is, what would you build to topple my amazing Lemon-rocket-space-car?! >:D

Well, here on PMC there are two main ways of getting subscribers, but! Just to be clear: It shouldn't be your entire goal with PMC that you should just gain subscribers. That's kinda pointless. But there are a few easy to do things that can help you make a name for yourself in this community.

1. Be active on the forums and in comment sections.
- Everyone appreciates a reply or a comment on their creation or forum post because it means you've actually checked it out. This can quite quickly backfire though. If you just go from project to project leaving "nice build" then people will quickly notice you're just doing it for attention, and if you leave rude or simple unessecary answers to forum posts, you'll be labeled as... Well as a moron to put it litely. So simply put: Read the stuff people write, and appreciate their creations before commenting.

2. Become a skin-artist.
- It seems that the biggest part of the PMC community are skin-artists. Fun to be around, very talkative, and they have a habit of sharing a lot of the creations which they find really cool, thus earning the creator of that set thing more subscribers as well as being more recognized around the site. It takes a lot of time to get really really good at making skins, but there are plenty of people ready to help you with tutorials and friendly skin-sharing-groups on Discord.

You can basiclly do what you want around here, and I feel that a new user to the site, should always start by just trying to find a footing in one of the many communities that make up this amazing site. You can try your hand at modding, texturepacks, server making, projects, mob skins etc. Whatever you enjoy making, will eventually begin landing you a lot of recognition around the site :)

There is quite a few aspects of Minecraft which you can get really really good at. Since the start of 2020 there has actually been a huge rise in Minecraft Java Edition speed runners. I personally think it's because of the YouTuber called: Dream, but it's a wild guess. Speedrunning is something that will actually allow you to get good at most of the important aspects of the game itself, even if you don't play Java Edition.
Speedrunning will quickly teach you about how to make a nether portal, how to find the ender portal, which recepies to remember in your head, how to best fight the ender-dragon etc. The only thing speedrunning can't really prepare you for in Minecraft is building. Since speedrunning is all about speed, then funny enough: You won't need to build a house, and thus your house-building skills might decrease by... Infinity :') But you'll be able to call yourself a true pro!

There are many many aspects of Minecraft which you can "get gud" at, but I think that learning how to speedrun the game will teach you the most basic stuff about the game, and how to use the different mechanics of it. After that, you can choose to look into the other aspects of the game such as: Building, Redstone, Coding, Textures, PVP, Mini-games and Running your own Minecraft server.

Luckily Minecraft was designed for You. It's not a game about Steve or some main character, because in Minecraft - You are the main character, and You control where Your story should go. So that is how you "get gud" at Minecraft :)

Level 50 : Grandmaster Pixel Puncher
TomConn
I think that survival with friends is the most fun, however I do feel that you all need to sort of have the same skill level / goal to make it last a long time. I've played on a lot of survival worlds, but my desire to build giant cities instead of actually playing the game by killing the enderdragon, making automatic farms etc. Well that desire has brought down all of my survival attempts :'D

I only have one singleplayer survival world which - Just like my RCT3 parks - is a secret that only I have seen because I feel that I need something which is purely mine, and belongs to no-one but me.
So I really like it when I get to play with someone that has similar goals / skill level, but I think for me to really enjoy survival - It would've had to be a place like the PhrozenCookie server where the community consisted of so many different people, kind of made into different little groups that functioned really well together :)

My name is one of the most uncreative things I have ever made :'D

Yeah...
So my real name is Thomas Connor... And I'm not very creative so I was just like: Thomas + Connor = TomConn :dab: And now most people know me as Tom, so I'm not going to change it :p

Warm waffles with vanilla ice cream, chocolate powdered top as well as a strawberry or a blueberry on top reminds me of a hotel I've been visiting every year in Norway, and it makes me so sad that I can't go there this year due to the covid situation. But! Hopefully I'll be able to go there next year and get those delicious waffles!

And yes, I could just make them myself, but the chef that makes them on that hotel is so good! I would never be able to replicate the taste of it :'D

How do art good?

07/21/2020 3:49 pm
Level 50 : Grandmaster Pixel Puncher
TomConn
To do art good, you do a many draw. The draw bad when start do art, but if keep draw it slow get good. It also can get good if follow other human who do art good. If you follow you take part you like and use to make you art good'er. Make pretty base draw that you do a practice on :)

In other words: I think one of the main keys to becoming good at creating art would be to just draw. I know it's way more complicated than that because you, as a human being, have different expectations for how you want your art to turn out. That's why I feel it's always a good idea to follow artists who does something which you think is really cool. As an example: I love the style which the Minecon Earth - Biome Vote videos are made in, so I do my best to kind of replicate set style, but try and give it a touch of what I feel would make it fit better to how I enjoy creating art. It basiclly translates to:
Minecon Earth artist = Spends lots of time and effort on them, creating multiple bases and colour schemes, animating etc.
Me: lmao *CTRL+C*

Level 50 : Grandmaster Pixel Puncher

I sadly have not, and I really wanted to take part in it. The problem with it is that I have had just about no time to myself, and with the scale to which I like building contest entries, I would've needed almost double the amount of time to fully create my vision of a nether castle, than what I really had.
But I'm looking forwards to the future contests, and I'm hoping that there will be one in August because I'll have a lot more time on my hands there than I have now. So I'll actually be able to take part in it without having the compromise the quality of my creation :)

Pff! The moon is way too close for my jumping powers. SpaceX says they're working on some stupid rocket to go to mars, but if they just did as many squats as me, then they'd be able to just jump to mars and start terraforming the orange rock. Then we could start a new utopia where only the people on earth who have done as many squats as me, will be able to jump through space, and land on mars to live out their days in the ultimate paradise and 1000/1000GB internet connection.

I've actually dropped about 20kg after switching out the normal Thicc Mayonnaise, with some light mayonnaise + cutting down on how much fast food I've been eating.

What's your favorite type of Minecraft content to create?

Level 50 : Grandmaster Pixel Puncher

It changes a lot to be fair. I have a mentality towards my projects that they all need some sort of purpose for me to want to work on them. If you look at some of my old projects, you'll notice I never updated any of them because they don't really have a purpose. With my tutorials, I can see with the view counter that people actually use the tutorial and find it helpful - Thus creating tutorials that hasn't been made 1000 times before, serve a purpose for me.
Some goes for my bundle projects - While a giant 800x800 mega castle with insane detail is incredible and should never be dismissed for the amount of work put into it, I really feel that they become too big to give proper inspiration. I feel that my bundles serve the purpose of giving inspiration to other players on their own level. So it's never something which they can't build themselves, it's something relativly easy to copy and can be made into your very own kind of build.

So in general:
I look around for projects, see what I feel is missing and then create what I felt was missing, and so far, without bragging too much: It really seems that I've hit a few good spots where other people also felt there was something missing.

Captain America is a total badass in the Marvel Comics universe, and I remember reading some of the Captain America comics and being like "Woow! He's so cool with his shield, and he's a super soldier! So cool." but in the movies it's like... Captain Capitalism! Here to protect the rich and if someone disagree's, well Imma beat them!

Iron man on the other hand was a rich douche from the beginning though, and he never really changed in the Marvel movies until he genuently had something to fight for, which I thought was so cool to see that he never really made the full turn from Rich douchebag to 'I'm your friendly neighbourhood rich guy who spends all his money on charity and helps everyone I meet'.
So deftly team Iron man, because he was much more interesting to follow throughout the years :D

In Denmark we first saw the bionicle figures from LEGO be released in 2001, and seeing as my father used to work as a truck driver for LEGO, he actually brought home some of the newest bionicle sets for me back then, and while I was more interested in the LEGO race car and LEGO city sets, I remember spending hours upon hours writing down notes on how I thought the bionicles limbs worked, and why they were able to move as they did.
I also drew different positions for how my different bionicle figures could stand on their own, but I seem to have lost the drawings of them sadly. I do however recall that my first bionicle I got back in 2001 was Onua, aka this guy:

It feels weird to say, but I would actually like to meet you in person, but at the same time, I really don't :'D
In reality I think it's anxiety kicking in telling me it'll be awkward, and the most likely scenario is that it might not be as bad as my brain thinks it would. Though I wouldn't dare to go alone, I would need Line to come with me, otherwise my brain would panic and erh... Yeah that wouldn't be too good :'D

Unless! If you one day you turn up to a Minecon in the US or if there comes a Minecon Europe, then I would have a decent reason to tell myself why it's okay to meet you in person :')
Quick change of subject: It would be so cool to meet the Top-Notch crew with their own booth at a Minecon event if it came to Europe :'D
