Revision 16: Part 1 : 11/12/2015 6:23:04 amNov 12th, 2015

I have returned for a final attempt at the SOIMP, Hi :)

Alsius Update Log:

  • Released first Revision 16 Map, it is a replica of the SOI Map from EP 1 to EP 16.
  • NOTE: This was all made in Minecraft Beta 1.7.3 as the Yogscast never really did SOI any futher than that, and thus is untested with the latest version of Minecraft. I suggest back dating using the new launcher. 
  • This is the most accurate build I've ever done...

This is bloody amazing. Mostly because you've actually got the texture for Templar Codex and Gaffa Tape in the texture 4. I had been looking for those for so f*cking long without finding any texture pack with them. This is just incredible. thank you very much for putting this up for other people to download! A diamond for you!
Dude, this is amazing, you are amazing. I can't even imagine the amount of effort this took. The textures are amazing, and if you can keep adding on to this that would amazing. Bravo to you my guy, thank you for making this.

This is amazing and even though the Yogscast won't start this up again, you should keep at it. If youve given up or need any help I'd love to help in one way or another.
This map is great with Archimedes Airships mod.

I know the project's been cancelled for quite a while, but I want to grab the downloads up to the point of Terrorvale, but am having problems at least from the version side of things, do you think you can tell me what they are so I don't mess them up by getting converted to scaevolus mcregion?

I've been rewatching the Shadow of Israphel videos to get back into minecraft and hopefully finish where the Yogscast left off. It's a real shame that they let Daisy Duke to die at the hands of the demon that has haunted Simon and Lewis for many years. Yes, I know the story behind why that is, but still, I want to try and help, at the very least, give the series a proper ending.

One of my greatest fears is that amazing things never get done (such as the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo decaology, stopping only at three books, but maybe a fourth coming out). Many people, including myself, loved the persona that the duo had during the series which eventually became somewhat scripted towards the end. As a writer, I can imagine the stories that can unfold, yet unable to put into practice as I lack skills to do such a thing (I can't even redstone).

Sorry for the long comment, but really just wanted the version and went off on a tangent, still I'd like to know the versions. If they break again, I'll go off screeshots and try to remake it by hand.
If the yogscast were to continue the series (if it ever happens) would the project be revived?
Where is theExperimental Space/Time Fisure Number 8? i don't remember that in the series.

I think with command blocks and some villager mods, somone could totally take this and make it playable all the way through(to where we currently are) I still think people would want to play this. Don't give up... any more than you already have. I believe in this project, and I offer my help in any way possible if you want it.

I downloaded the map and it's shown up in my Minecraft, yet when I go in I don't see anything. Just regular Minecraft.
This was probably in a custom map, but would you be able to add the survival island part somewhere in the ocean? Lysanders' ship went there, so maybe you could add it?
What did you do to the oasis? It's all burnt. And some of the creations in the desert I've never seen in the series. o_o

Oh cool nice to know well tthen i can officially say im playing on the full SoI map thanks for your work again and thanks to Eckoro too
Okay, I just downloaded it and so far I loved it, but I hit a glitch near the Yogcave? Everything was black, that I stepped into and it kept glitching (almost like it hadn't loaded yet) and I could move really slowly so I tried to go back to the sand but I fell? Idk. Anyone else had that problem?
Megangrace what you said is exacly waht happened you didnt load it yet, that chunk didnt load you just have to relog and it would fix, if it dosent work that means that the chunk is working properly with your computer or the map of course is broken.

What people don't really understand it is a long job doing this (I didn't really find it boring), but essencially the only thing we get out of it is Internet points and thanks from you guys - less people doing that then I feel it is pretty pointless. This is basically what I said to ipodguy:


Well the charm for me doing it originally was doing it from the videos, these World Download maps seem to take away from it now. Also there is less demand for what we do now, not as many interested in it - so it feel like a waste of time. The Yogscast themselves probably won't care to mention it anymore, they have bigger and better careers now.

I enjoyed it, but it just feels like a waste of time to me now. You have quit a couple of times also, for time you put in just think what else you can do and is it really worth it etc.?


It was nice to get all the credit like "Wow your work is great, wish I could do that" - and the little bit of fame. Only thing at the end of the day you get from it, but their fan audience has changed a lot. Sure I would still love to do it somewhat since I was good at it.

Also, pretty much all of the great replicators are gone, Adam Francis, Xer0fire, Eckoro, and a few other awesome people have retired. The Shadow of Israphel spirit is gone.

The demand for Shadow of Israphel and it's map has died down, There was once around 300 thousand people who wanted the map (or the closest thing to it). But that has died down over the years to around 20 thousand (not good).

To be perfectly honest, I'm not that great of a replicator, I'm much better at producing videos (what I'm leaving the project for).  2011 is long gone, The Yogscast cheated us. 

Not to mention other Yogscast members always make jokes and tease us, to quote Sjin "Do people still actually think soi is coming back?".

I can testify against that. There is plenty of evidence that they still do care about Shadow of Israphel. Just check out what Hannah has said about it on the forums and what Lewis has been talking about it on the Yogscast Subreddit. Basically Lewis has been planning the SoI lore (this was almost an year ago now) and decided to include a series as part of it's lore.


And guess what series that is? Yes it;s YogLabs. And with every episode it is patching up bits and pieces of little mysteries that SoI popped up when it was running. With each and every episode we're getting closer and closer to a return of the SoI series.


You see, the main reason why SoI was delayed so long was because Lewis and the others were mostly afraid. The kind of hype SoI sparked up was huge, and the yogs weren't sure if they could meet it. So they kept it aside for a while, then picked it back up about an year ago and began working on it (Hannah has said that Lewis and Tom of the Beard, who is the writer of the series, were working on it together alright). The date for it's return insches ever closer, we just don't know when that is. But it won't be long, given that the number of SoI references in Yoglabs has spiked up immensly in the latest few episodes...

I can agree that the next eps of yoglabs may include the builds from soi, but that doesn't make it shadow of israphel, even if they bring it back it won't feel like it used to, the yogscast are no longer amateurs, what made it unique was the fact that they weren't professionals, they did it for a hobby and stayed for the cash.

You don't stop your most popular series for almost 2 years without a proper reason, have we actually gotten the same reason from everyone? No, Lewis has said it's being worked on, Hannah has said it takes months to create, ridgedog hasn't said shit, Phatima THE DIRECTOR OF SOI HASNT SAID ANYTHING SINCE 2012!!!

ipodguy looking at the dates of things they had started building The Hand around 07/2011 or before, the episode didn't come out till July 2012. Seeing as The Oasis etc. was done then. They still even have material they haven't used on there map i.e Icaria and other stuff so taking time to build things I doubt that. Issue is: Duncan his own Youtube channel now.
  • Alsius

Well, here is what I think I know about who hosted the server
02/2011 Host was moved from Lewis to Peva: Ep 12 - 30
09/2011 Host was moved from Peva to Dyneslott: Ep 31 - 35
02/2012 Host was moved from Dyneslott to Ridgedog: Ep 36 - 42
And I'm pretty sure Ridgedog still hosts them now.

As for Duncan & Sijn being too caught up with YouTube, I'm pretty sure they stopped after Ridgedog took over, I'm assume The Voxelbox finished the builds they had started. So I don't think that is the major issue, I think it's just because Ridgedog got lazy.
  • The_WriterV
  • Level 5
  • Apprentice Architect
  • March 26, 2014, 7:46 am
I can confirm that the VoxelBox is working on the building related stuff of SoI. 


I can also tell that Ridgedog isn't lazy. However, he has recently been going through a lot in his personal life with his own family and children and major... problems in life. He is also working for the Yogscast and managing all their server work and working on Yoglabs at the same time.


I really can't call Rdigedog lazy that way. Please don't do that :( . He's a hardworking person who loves his work.

His tumblr page is by far the best way to contact him. I haven't seen him on the Voxel Box itself either (given the recent closure of our server for the Great Restructuring) so I think you can find your questions answered best there.


I suggest including a link to your project and showing your old username ipodguy to prove your authenticity to him. He'll listen in most cases. :)

I'm sad to say this, but I feel like its time that I should retire my soimp project. Once R15 is fully out I will be retiring the project to focus on my YouTube and personal life.

I have been doing this project for a year and a half and I feel like it's the time to quit since I am no longer interested in the yogscast. My YogLabs project will be stopped and the SOIMP will no longer be updated past R15.5, I might return if soi returns in 2014 but I suspect not.

I feel like I need to get this chapter of my life over and done with, I need to get over my fanboy attitude towards the yogscast and realise I'm just a fan and no one important to them. I feel like the project has been consuming my life and I need a break.

In the meantime I plan to get on to the voxelbox, I doubt I will get in though. You guys have been great! I loved all of the great feedback and I read all of it, thank you for supporting me

Look, I know it's not dead but they are just putting it off (the best way to piss off your fanbase) Anyway SoI and Yoglabs don't please me anymore and it is feeling more like a job than a fun project. I'm just taking a well needed break. if SoI makes a comeback this year I will return. but my guess is it will return in next year in yogventures as opposed to minecraft which will put me off the yogscast all together.
