Forget about time capsules, forget about firefloor (at least for now) and the new waste can also wait because it's Piwi day! => https://empireminecraft.com/threads/piwi-day-2018.77017/ :-) May 26, 2018 at 9:49 AM

      I still love how you use the icon I made you <3
      I could always make you a new one if you want? You're due for an upgrade at this point
      (This is Chewsy by the way if it wasn't obvious, I got another name change)

        I didn't recognize the name, but this time I did recognize your avatar (which I also still enjoy looking at very much!). But your avatar has evolved ;) It's not only being used on the Empire, I'm actually using it on all Minecraft fora which are (somewhat) important to me :) Basically EMC, Planet Minecraft and Enjin (though I barely visit that these days).

        As to the upgrade... Feel free to give it a try. But I may be a bit more critical because it'll be hard to upgrade this one I think. I actually got some friendly feedback on PMC who I then referred to your webpage (the one with the art work on it and which name I now forgot).

      Can you help me build something with Schematica on SMP9?
      1. ShelLuser
        ShelLuser
        Depends. I can provide some guidance I suppose. But the actual building process won't work; on SMP9 I am WAY out into the Frontier. (I usually don't pick any building jobs).

        Thanks but.. in all fairness... I'll be honest: It did "wake me up" a bit. But everything which happened afterwards (apart from me giving an iron voucher away (don't ask)) had no ties into this. I also like to think that it helped for Krysyy and me to come to a solid work around for my forum issue. But my 'awakening' doesn't end here. oh, heck no :P

        I always have to deal with work, I'm in the end phase of a major project which means that I sometimes actually sleep during the day, work during the night because I cannot concentrate (nor motivate) when it's a bloody 25 degrees here. Not healthy, but it works. When that comes an end... hmmm....

        There is much more good stuff to gain from PMC than staff wannabe's :) I have to be honest, I only became more active since November or so last year but PMC is my other Minecraft home. (EMC for EMC stuff, PMC (notice what I did?) for general Minecraft stuff) :)

        I'm actually happy to learn that Steam is also a good platform for (very) casual gamers such as myself. I don't often play games (Minecraft being the main exception), yet it still has nice stuff :)

        Niiice, there’s a number of fun games on steam, for both casual and hardcore gamers alike. If you would like a suggestion on a survival based game that lets you play and learn at your own pace, I would say try Niche: a genetics survival game. There’s a lot to see though in Steams impressive library.

      I wonder... could Minecraft ever be "finished"? When I consider 1.13 I'm tempted to say that it comes pretty close.

        Impossible, minecraft is a sandbox game, it will always be needing fixes and improvements, and I do not think they will stop until the developers decide to call it quits and retire minecraft, which should be incredibly unlikely, I see minecraft going on for another 25 years before any signs of stopping.

        @We3: Prior to 1.13 there was a 'physical' limit to the amount of blocks they could add, basically because of the way this was programmed. This is one of the reasons you have 'variants' (many blocks sharing the same ID), like the stone variants. 1.13 removes that limit, so they can now basically add whatever they want.

        Ayups. Just contacted Mojang, seems they're having issues with their API server. Even so: best to be careful in these situations.

        I'll try to remember that. Like Krysyy, _Bunni__, etc. said, I think I may need a few days to two weeks (probably about a week) to truly contemplate. If I return, however, I'll probably dedicate most of my activity to the MPO and forum PMs, and be more of a lurker in most places reading others' posts to see who I should try to recruit.

        Like, trying to keep a lower profile/fly under the radar. I don't even participate in the economy much because when I'm on, it's usually either to check in, to work on stuff at the MPO, or less often, to go to a Harvest Day event that Saz, John, Bara, and carol host sometimes.

    I suppose I fall into the 'geek' category. I'm an IT professional and I basically learned most of it myself. "In my days..." we didn't have much I(C)T studies; perhaps apart from learning how WP5.1, Lotus 1-2-3 and dBase worked.

    Messed with computers most of my life (started with a C64, BBC Electron and later expanded to 286, 486 and the more modern machines) and often went way beyond merely "starting programs".

    Self employed, own (small!) IT company, which often results in pretty drastic changes in playtime. Sometimes I have the luxury to combine work with play (telephone support (standby) for overseas customers for example) while in other weeks I won't be able to play at all.

    Main hobbies: Scooter, synthesizers / sound design, Minecraft, watching a movie with my gf on a Saturday evening (<3), reading.

    About Minecraft:

    My girlfriend introduced me to Minecraft in March 2014, and I was quickly hooked. Especially the redstone parts managed to grasp my interest, even though I had little clue on how to use them.

    3 days after discovering Minecraft I discovered the multiplayer communities, found a server I took a liking to and it was a very nice and educational experience. Eventually I lost my motivation; partly because of the way the server was run but mostly because of an upcoming map wipe. After playing and working very hard for 6 - 7 months only to realize that it would all go kab00m was too demotivating for me.

    "If I need to start all over anyway, then why not look around for other alternatives?".

    This is where I found the Empire. December 2014.

    I've been online for nearly 2 months at the time of writing, and I've now reached a point where there's no more doubt in my mind anymore: this is where I belong.

    Update:

    It seems that my opinion is shared by "the powers that be", because on March 2015 I got invited to become part of the EMC Contribution Team, an invitation I obviously took on both handed. I'm very excited, mostly because I take joy in the fact that people recognized and appreciated the things I've done so far; and have now put an official "label of approval" onto it.

    Update:

    As of October 2016 I quit said contribution team because I didn't feel motivated enough anymore. EMC is all about having fun for me, and as soon as something stops being fun then that's where I'll have to draw the line. For me a title becomes meaningless if you can no longer enjoy it, and I'm not really the kind of guy who needs to have status symbols. I'd rather let my actions speak for themselves :)

    Update (17th November 2016):

    It appears there are some wild rumors going about regarding me leaving the contrib. team, and I feel I need to squash those because after my last somewhat critical public remarks (critical is -not- the same as negative!) some people apparently thought that I somewhat became anti-EMC or something.

    Yes, I might sometimes criticize the staff and/or their actions. But that does not mean that I suddenly started hating on them or something. That's plain out ridiculous.

    Fun fact: Aikar criticized the staff in his days with regards to town vs. survival, and look where we are now. So why would my (few!) moments of criticism suddenly have to turn out bad?

    Empire Minecraft is the best Minecraft server there is for me.

    Update (20th January 2018):

    As of some time I can no longer like other peoples posts. Nor can Aya who has been somewhat associated with me ever since we met (none of us mind). But if you wonder about it, now you know why.

    Update (1st February 2018):

    I'll still be doing plenty of posts (and occasional tutorials) on the Empire, but have decided to limit myself to EMC topics only. Every other project which addresses Minecraft in general will be posted to another location:

    http://www.planetminecraft.com/member/shelluser/

    Think about redstone tutorials, plugin reviews, command block tips and tricks, and even a way to create your own Herobrine mini boss :D
