  1. Hey Community! I've gotten quite a few PM's from several of you asking if you could help out somehow. I'm going to let you know, yes. I'd like to ask you to send me a PM of your best builds.

    "What? Why?" You may ask. Simply, I can't build castles. /v dirtshack on smp5 proves this.

    Are you now wondering why I require a castle? Well, you see I want the first thing a player sees when they log into the new tutorial to be absolutely breathtaking.. Which is exactly why I need your help.

    The people who build for me will get limited access to Stage, and will be asked for assistance in future builds/remodels.

    *Edit:
    Size restriction: It's a giant superflat with no boundaries except your imagination. I do have some rough walls set up, but they're only suggestions.

    Block types: If it looks great together, yes. The players will be restricted in a box within the courtyard.

    What builds are required for showing off: Anything you've ever made. It does not have to be on EMC.

    *If I can find a picture of the build on Google, I will be pretty disappointed.

    Edit2:

  2. "new tutorial"
    wait, we're making a NEW tutorial? o,o
  3. Are you looking for any specific block such as quartz, or stone? also does it have to fit the 60x60 reses?
  4. But... I loved it :(.
  5. I suggest netherack:rolleyes:

  6. Does this include build we made off emc, or just on EMC?
  7. um.
    uh.
    Give me a few days lol.
  8. well I'll give this a shot :p
  9. Just to clear up questions: (it's not my project, but I think I can explain)

    Size will not be limited. There will be plenty of room.

    The new tutorial is to streamline players joining, because many are getting disgusted with the existing one and leaving.
    Most of you know that skipping the tutorial is no longer an option, so the project is aiming for better new player experience. This is based on months of following players through the tutorial and looking for ways to improve.

    Also, there are new features that will be added to 'modernize' how it works, so keep an open mind and think BIG.

  10. :/ I don't have anything great to show off right now. BUT I will say that we had someone join SMP7 a few hours ago who actually said "Nice tutorial! I've never been in an interactive one." So that's something to consider keeping. :)
  11. Hmmm... will the user be walking through the castle? And will there be little buildings on the grounds? I'm best with small things, but I could try to whip up something bigger if needed.
  12. I think everyone would need to know the block range that they can use and the theme such as nether based. Also what rooms will be needed because that would help with the layout.
  13. What blocks you want us to use and any sort of picture in real life you want us to base it off of?
  14. I agree Its hard to understand with this amount of info

    *Adding this bit ^ to first post also.

    I'd also like to thank you all that have sent me PM's. I haven't read them all yet, but I'm pretty excited. :D

    This is what we currently have made, Krysyy and I worked on it together. As you can see, you're confined to a small box. We'll be using hologram tech within the tutorial. Also, if you feel anything here can be improved let us know (I understand the colored class can make it difficult to look out, and not everyone uses optifine).

    If you're wondering about the random portal/rts pad, we thought having a different way to go to the next room would show off how different we are from other servers.

  16. If you're wondering what will happen to all the interactive parts, we plan to rebuild those as well; better and more informative.. They'll just be optional to take at the end of the tutorial.

    We're going to have a hub at the end of the tutorial, where the player will be able to choose to go to their residence, straight to the wastelands, or to the interactive tutorial. :)

  17. So we don't need to have something built yet? Just the buildings we have?
  18. If that's something you want to share, that's perfectly fine. If you have stuff from a single player world or another server that you'd like to share, that's okay too (just please don't advertise the IP).
  19. As far as size, sure imagine large, but view distance in town is now 4 chunks, so it may be best to have the main walls less than 64 blocks away so people can see them.
  20. Someone find and bring eclypsis over here!
