Level 46 : Master Pirate
Hide your Kids and Toys because Ratoyo is coming for them both!

[size=10pt]after 1 years working on this project I have finally decided to call it complete, my goal was to create a surreal character which I today present to you!



As a little scrapbot working in santa's factory Ratoyo has always been fascinated with toys. He adored them, but he could never have one, santa wouldn't let him. Ratoyo would occassionally sneaki n to the storage room late nights to play with toys. braid the dolls hair and push the trains along the giant tracks he constructed out of popsicle sticks. Ratoyo could never have been happier. But old machines wores out and is replaced by new and better technology. Ratoyo would soon find himself out on the streets, shrugging under porches as he attempts to avoid the rain and thereby rust. Ratoyo decided that he would not end up on the scrapyard.

Ratoyo took employment in a local store working in the storage section, for the children would be frightened if he showed his mechanical nature. one night he found box which the manager had thrown out. It was a toy assembly kit filled with cloth, glue and other useful materials. Ratoyo had always dreamed of owning his own toy and now he could finally make them himself! He worked the whole night, from dusk til dawn, untill is masterwork was complete. he used up all the cloth for the pink dress, all the hay for the blonde hair and all the sticks for its body. it was his doll. and he knew he was going to love it dearly.

Ratoyo decided to show it to the shopkeeper, surely if he showed his capability to make toys the shopkeeper could put him to the task!
  • look master! look! I made a doll!
  • oh my… the shopkeeper was lost for words.

he tapped Ratoyo on his little mechanical forehead and handed the doll back to him.
  • you can’t be in the shop, someone will see you.
  • but but…

the door sprung open and in stormed a little girl with her father tailing.
  • Daddy, I want a doll!

Ratoyo hid quickly behind the counter. leaving the doll in the shopkeeper’s hand.

the little girl glanced at the doll the shopkeeper held.
  • Daddy I want that doll!

no, she can’t have that doll, that’s my doll!
  • how much for the doll? the father asked.
  • oh its not for sale my lord.
  • I am the mayor of this town and if my daughter wants something she will have it.

the shopkeeper handed the girl the doll.
  • that will be 10 pounds my lord.
  • allways glad to do good business shopkeeper!

Ratoyo could not stand loosing his precious.

he crawled from his hide spot and went up to the little girl.

“errm excuse me?” he said in his scrappy little voice.

“I made that doll, and its my most treassured object in this world, so if you could be kind to give it ba..”

“eeeeeek!!” the girl screamed!
  • get it away from me daddy! its scary!
  • what is the meaning of this?! what is this monster?! get it away from me and my daughter.

the father stormed out from the shop with his daughter holding Ratoyo’s doll in her hand.
  • get out of here! yelled the shopkeeper!

Ratoyo fealt sadness within him, but no tears could he conjure, because he was no human. no organic creation from the earth mother. just a scrapbot.

when the police arrived Ratoyo was allready gone, he decided to hide in the scrapyard, surely no human would think of looking for him there.

huddling under scrap Ratoyo from cars and other mechanical vehicles hiding from the rain, Ratoyo thought to himself to just sink in with the rest of the scrap, becoming one with it. but he was strong willed.. he would not dissapear on this scrapyard! from tires and mechanical contraptions Ratoyo Constructed a cart from which he could drive away from this horrible town and humans, he would craft his own toys to share with the world!

Ratoyo did not however have any tools. but what he did find on the scrapyard was a organic transformer. it transformed the bones and muscles of humans to wood.

Ratoyo decided to visit the little girl that stole his precious doll and retake it. but also to have his revange. he kidnapped the child and transformed her into a doll. when the father came looking for her he sold her to him.

after a few customers he could afford to hire staff to accompany him.

Ratoyo still to this day roams the roads. always looking for new products.

so hide your kids and kids toys, because Ratoyo is coming for them both!


edit since people doesn't read imgur albums or reddit posts it seems
1 year ago I stumbled upon lior arditi's concept art: http://lior-arditi.daportfolio.com/gallery/460365#14

-What Tools were used?

Worldedit, Mcedit, Voxelsniper.

how to install
Download map by clicking the yellow button at the top right of the description.
On Windows, use keys Windows+R and then typing “%appdata%/.minecraft/saves/” into the command line. (On a Mac, your save files are in: ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/saves/). This will open the saves folder
Drag your downloaded map (after unzip or unrar) into saves folder.
Close windows and reopen Minecraft.
Select your map and play.
additional info
I originally intended for the cart to drive on the bridge. when I realized that wouldn't be possible without using mods to increase the height limit I decided to make another version of it for you guys to download using vanilla minecraft. if there's enough demand for a modded version then I will put one up for download :)

What you can do:

  • make a cinematic of it but you must then provide a link to this post aswell as give me full credit for the creation.

lastly I would like to thank Lindblumen for the pinochio organic and DJpauli or 2 renders :)

I hope you enjoy this artwork :)


this will probably be my final minecraft creation as I no longer enjoy the game as I used to do. when a hobby becomes your job its no longer a hobby, that's what I've been feeling these past months. perhaps you'll see me again but not in minecraft, probably in the gaming industry since that's were my dream lies :)
Creditconcept art by Lior Arditi, Lindblumen for the pinochio organic, DriliNanners for his continued motivation. our lord and saviour spaghetti monster.
