Rybatland is my WORK IN PROGRESS Fact-based Space Open-World Game (lots of changes to base Minecraft, so I like to call it that) where you can battle the powerful Oblivion, see amazing worlds, establish a trading empire, or just have some fun with the story! Detailed by hand and crafted with MCEdit and Worldpainter, explore 28 full-sized solar systems and make your own story in this vast, unknown universe. I am currently using the latest version of the Custom NPCs mod (by Noppes, download it HERE) to create the map with quests, loot, and of course NPCs. At launch, the game will contain a vast amount of content that I will expand on as time goes on. The download is not ready yet, but keep checking, as I will update this post with pictures and descriptions on the map as I progress. The map will be similar to an MMORPG, where you can explore freely, experience maximum customizablity, and face a variety of immersive challenges.. I am also looking into a way to transfer your progress between updates, so you do not have to restart the game every time a patch is released.

A key point of Rybatland is the fact that I've tried to base as much of the map as I can on real science and logic. Though there are still sacrifices in this regard that had to be made for the sake of decent gameplay, I've made sure that everything in the map is at least somewhat logical, and a lot of astronomical classifications can be found in the map. Though I wouldn't quite call it science fiction, it's far from science fantasy.

Have an idea or suggestion? I'd love to hear it! Post your thoughts in the comments, good or bad, and I will try to get them incorperated into the map! Thanks for all your help!

Please remember to diamond, favorite, and share this map! I can't do this without you guys!

The Rybat Galactic Colony, a united human civilization set in our future, looks to rediscover our lost human history. However, they awaken the ancient Oblivion, a dark force with a disturbing past lurking in the dark corners of the universe. Being crushed under the power of the Oblivion, you must help the Colony fight back the Oblivion and rediscover home.

-Colony (Hub)




-Elgedra (Built by Nutbunny and Kailavine)



*NOTE: Worlds built by other players were constructed by them, but NPCs, quest text, and drops were done by me.

LOTS more planned and will be revealed soon!
Unlike a lot of linear adventure maps, there are lots of things you can do in Rybatland to blaze your own trail. Here are just a few of the activities in Rybatland:

-Fight against the dark forces of the Oblivion and other powers

-Explore the depths of 28 unique solar systems, filled with different planets, stars, and other objects

-Rediscover human history and learn about other sentient species

-Sell resources to settlements across colonized space

-Experience the story of the RGC as they campaign to retake their home

-Compete with your friends in PvP, or work with them in cooperative battles

-Choose a class and follow the path of their peoples' ways

-Discover custom-made items that change the way you play

-Work against law and order to become the ultimate space pirate (arr)
The Alpha will not be updated so frequently like the previous Rybatland. Instead, larger patches will come only when they need to be tested.

Post-launch patches will come every few months with new campaign content, items, and challenges.
As of now, there is no official trailer for Rybatland. However, you can view the trailer for the current Alpha version on my YouTube Channel, Rybat117!

I'm using the website Trello to track the development of Rybatland. Never heard of it? Check it out, it's cool. There is even a free app for your mobile device for it. This website helps me to let everyone know what I'm working on in Rybatland, as well as some more information and ways you can help with the development. I also post demos of the content on YouTube.

State of Rybatland (Very Good!) : 04/17/2016 12:05:33 amApr 17th, 2016

Usually these kinds of things are postmortem or bad situation updates. That's not what this is. If you want to hear about unsupported dead projects look up game postmortem. This update is just to say what's going on with Rybatland.

I recently decided to restart Rybatland because of all the flaws and fundamental changes I wanted to make. Now it's a space game, and way cooler than before. I've updated the PMC page as best I could, but in case I missed anything, you can get much more up-to-date news on Rybatland here: https://trello.com/b/ZijkQ6Jh/rybatland-development-board

Sounds great! Any ideas in which you think you'll be finished?
(Also, I personaly believe you should put this on a server when your done. Servers are great for advertising maps)
