[Museum] 16500 EMC Museum

Discussion in 'Share Your EMC Creations' started by Hashhog, Feb 24, 2015.

  1. Welcome to the 16500 Museum
    Located on 16500, SMP8
    Owned and operated by Hashhog
    Primary design by AlexC__, smaller portions by Hashhog

    About the Museum
    The 16500 has evolved quite a lot through the ages, starting as an ugly sandstone cube displaying facts about swamps and ending as a beautiful sandstone monolith displaying an array of the Empire’s special items laid out for all of EMC to enjoy. My goal is to educate the EMC about the various and many custom items that we have here. I also, of course, hope to entertain you.

    16500 is the first major museum to display its items via Preview signs. To view an item and all of its lore, right click the [PREVIEW] sign on the front of the chest on which the item name is listed. To view a short informational blurb about the item, click the button below the chest.

    Our selection of items includes promotional items, special mob drops, Voters items, starter gear, super-rare items, event items, and more.

    Many thanks to AlexC__ for designing the vast majority of the museum.

    Currently Buying

    I am currently buying the following items:
    • Independence Helmet
    • ALL PURPLE PEOPLE PARTY ITEMS APART FROM COOKIE!
    Prices are negotiable for the Helmet. I will pay generously. Please private message me offers.

    Gift Shop
    In order to raise money for 16500 or other personal projects, 16500 does run a gift shop. It is located in the basement area of 16500, accessed via the elevator on the left side upon entry.

    Note that all decorative heads are those of TheApostrophe, excluding the authentic Hashhog heads.

    Model Museum Head
    This decorative model of 16500’s building will complete any mini-cityscape! Of all the items in the gift shop, this is my personal favorite. The 16500 Diamond Award (more information in the Other Museums section) is a modified version of this head.
    Fake Founder Heads
    JustinGuy and IcecreamCow were the founders of EMC; in the giftshop we sell REPLICAS of their traditional heads. Please remember that these heads are NOT actually those of either JustinGuy or IcecreamCow and are those of TheApostrophe; any attempt to sell or trade them as authentic heads of JustinGuy or IcecreamCow will be considered scamming and per EMC’s rules will result in punishment at staff discretion.

    Hashhog’s Head and Signature
    These are an authentic Hashhog head and signature, should you want them for your collection. Note that ALL Hash-written books at 16500 or at Hashhog’s neighboring bookstore are signed by Hashhog; this signature is simply extra fancy, for those who want it (and a new, Senior Staff version of the old Moderator signature). Hashhog heads and this signature are often given out at events freely, when I have extras on hand; however, you are welcome to purchase them here.

    Take 4
    This book details the lengthy story of the 16500 Museum and how it came to be–as you might guess from the title, 16500 wasn’t my first try at a museum.

    16500 Museum Shield
    Charge into battle behind a crowned specter emblazoned in the fearsome colors of 16500! This item is purely a fun money-raiser, but I enjoy it.

    We will be adding a Map Art (SMP8 only) in the future.
    Donation Policy
    As museum’s are expensive to run, we accept any and all donations. Rupee donations may be made to GoldenHashhog, and item donations may be either mailed or placed in the donation chests (redstone designed by ob1bob69) in the basement area. Please let me know if you donate so I may add you to the list below.

    Huge thanks to Hoi, jrm531, Mman, AyanamiKun, ShelLuser, Agent_Creeper23, and Dufne for their donations.

    Other Museums
    The Empire has a number of fantastic museums for you to visit. Note that 16500 offers an honorary award, the 16500 Diamond Award, to museums that exemplify large advances in EMC Museum knowledge/technique or that are particularly excellent points of visitation. These museums below are denoted with a small Diamond Museum picture. More of these awards will be given out in the future.
    The following museums are great places to visit when you have some free time and have much to contribute to EMC:
    • FDNY21 - SMP9 - 18200
    • Mman - SMP7 - 14006
    If you would like your museum to be considered for the list above, please private message Hashhog with all relevant information, and I will take a look.

  4. Had a look around and the place looks awesome! Love the stand ideas and all of the information, the structure is great too, nice to see another Museum popping up on another server!

    Perhaps I'll have to add it to the Empire Museums Thread that I have... Speaking of threads, was linking ACInc's old Architecture thread at the bottom of your post intentional? :p

  5. Thanks! And no, that was not intentional. :p I meant to link the Empire Museums thing, but I copied and pasted the wrong thing. :p

  7. Are you looking to buy any rares?
    If so, are you interested in buying the old version of a gold voucher, and roughly how much for?

  16. Museum Update #4 - FDNY21 Update

    Part 1 - New Museum Addition!
    • For a long, long time, I have asked for a statue of myself in the middle of FDNY21's museum lobby. However, it occurred to me earlier that if I want any such statue, Fendy probably would like the same courtesy. So, in honor of his beauty and greatness, I have installed a FDNY21 statue as a permanent fixture of the museum.
    • An altar/steps was also added in front of the new statue so you will have a designated area to gaze upon it with love and wonder.

  17. This is the best thing that I have ever seen *sniff* Though I am guessing that the "permanent fixture" part was for April Fool's, and it's just up for today? ;)

  18. And possibly tomorrow. :p Depends when I have time to rip it down.
