Hey Guys,

This is my first post on Planet Minecraft. So here goes...

-------------------------Story-------------------------
For a few weeks I've been working on an adventure map. The map is set on an island that is basically being taken over by "the cold". You (the hero) wake up on your boat to find that your once peaceful town has been abandoned and taken over by the cold.

As you explore the town you find notes and messages telling you that the survivors of the town have taken refuge in the last place the cold hasn't overrun - a smaller island North-East of the mainland.

Once you arrive at the refugee camp you begin to make plans on how to retake the island and cut the cold from its source....
----------------Completed/to-do-------------------
-Spawn [Done (may redo)]
-Town [80%]
-Woods [95%]
-Camp [90%]
-Ghost Ship SQ1 [60%]
-Mines SQ2 [80%]
-Chapel [95%]
-Hugos Tomb SQ3 [95%]
-The Dam SQ4 [25%]
-Wolf SQ5 [?]
-Farmlands [95%]
-Snow Tree Area [70%]
-Cliff-watch [95%]
-Observatory SQ6 [95%]
-End Area [15%]

-Texture Pack [95%]

* The areas marked as "95%" have been built but could change (unlikely). the story for these areas also has to be written *

----------------------Other Info.----------------------
- The map is far from complete, but I thought I'd make this post to hopefully get some support and the like.

- I have a friend hosting this map on a server so I may consider getting help if your interested.

- I'll upload a progress video of this on my youtube channel at some point [done]

- 100% custom terrain

- I have no release date as we're taking as long as we need to get it good!
-----------------------------------------------------------

Regards,
Edland

Hey guys, sorry I havn't kept anyone updated - i had no idea this was still so popular...

Anyway.. recently I havn't had the urge to finish this project and have been busy with other stuff like building the spawn for the server I play on..

As there was only really a couple of us who worked on this project anything that was done took far too long to complete so if/when we decide to resume this build I shall probably ask for builders etc to help out..

Apologies once again!
Ciao!

True, but these percentages only take into account building work - not story, mechanics (mobs, MCedit stuff) etc

Hey, Nice to still see some support for the map :)

The progress (complete/to do) section is pretty out of date... we're nearing finishing the major building parts.. after that, there will only be small building works, such as small camps with loot.

once all building work is done, the map will be taken off the server it is currently running on and I will add the features that I cannot add on SMP through MCedit.

After this is done we'll go through a "balancing" phase. what i mean by this is we shall see how much food, weapons and armour people need as they progress.

Finally, we shall test the map. Here selected people will test the map for bugs, problems and any other things to ensure we get a smooth launch :)

I would be lying to you if I told you we we're close to finished, but we're getting there..

Stay tuned!

Heh, I don't really want to make a release date because every area we start leads to a new project... I can't really explain it lol, and if I don't stick to the release date I post, then a lot of people will be disappointed

but thanks for showing an interest :D

I've already explained why its taking a while (read the post below)..

It has never been my aim to create low quality builds and I don't intend to start now. Ask yourself would you rather wait and have a high quality map or for me to release an average map sooner?

I am planning on making a progress video for the map, but I want to wait for the sonic ethers shaders to update to 1.4.6 before I do so.

Were currently working on it, You should be able to expect an increase in productivity over the christmas break. Also we have not really keept this post updated. But i would say were near 65% or so now. :)

/BroBratt

Maybe we should consider an update of this post? But that would give away too much :3

Yeah.. I've been super busy at college at honestly haven't had time to work on this project recently.. and considering its only me and BroBratt who properly work on this, everything takes a while.

We are currently more around 55%-65% complete now, I'll make a proper update post with screenies and stuff soon.

Sorry for the lack of activity on this thread for the last month.

Still finsh it before you post it man.Posting a adventure map not done is like playing MW3 with only two level's.Mostly that people download more if you finsh it first. But form what I see you are doing a great job!

Yeah I have no plans of releasing a download early because its a massive pain to get the map from the guy hosting the server as well as your point.

But thanks for the support :) I'll be updating the thread soon, the maps more like 30-40% complete now

Yeah, it has been a bit slow recently, I've been very busy with college work and making a texture pack for this map, so there hasn't been too much actual building going on.

With that said, I've done a bit of building but not a lot considering I was planning on having the map finished by now. But what ev's
