Been working on my sunderer, ESF, and Liberator in planetside, but this week I’m going to start working on my lightning. I was watching some youtube videos on it, and found a decent explanation of what I want to go for from LevelCap, the Vanu leader. So check that out, see what you think, maybe we can get a whole squad of lightning tanks going.
Also if your interested in playing with us, we are on the Waterson server of Planetside 2 as the New Conglomerate, currently representing the outfit UGP. Its a free to play game, so take a minute and check it out!
Well I haven’t been posting on here a lot lately, but I thought I’d give a quick update of what we are doing. Haven’t been playing minecraft as much, but the server is still up and running, and the plan is to keep it that way for whenever any of us get the minecraft “itch”. Meanwhile however, we have started playing Planetside 2 a lot more actively on the waterson server. We are part of the New Conglomerate and currently part of the UGP outfit. So if you interested in trying that out, and looking for some people to play with, look me up in game, username reidic.
In the personal life, got a new fish, a little crown tail betta named Nero. You can check him out on ustream http://www.ustream.tv/channel/critter-cavy-cam.
Thought I’d give the youtube broadcasting idea out a bit today and posted my first video. Its just a click overview of stone bricks and their uses in caves. Probably try and do another this weekend. Still trying to figure out how to make the channel look professional and what not. Also trying to find a way to make a better thumbnail for the actual videos.
Thought I’d take a minute to show the starts of my city project on our minecraft server. I just took a quick render of it this morning. There is still glass missing from the tower on the right, but I’m hoping to get more sand this afternoon and wrap that up. I also need to finish the brick flooring around the fountain. Feel free to keep an eye on the project via our dynamic map (located in the menu at the top), it updates as soon as any change to the are are made. You can see a more 3d view of the map with the view options on the right side of the screen.
I’m trying out 3D rendering today with our minecraft map. I’ll add some results to this post as they come in. If you ever want the world file to try rendering on your own, or to do whatever with, or say just to have, feel free to let me know and I will get you the most recent copy.
Here is a quick taste of whats to come, my first attempt, Adam’s modern style home:
Second attempt, found how to do sky scenery, here’s my farm:
Zack’s village and home rendered at about 10x the quality as the first two:
John’s Office Building, using some different water settings at 4000SPP:
I’ve been watching a lot of different minecraft youtube videos lately as we get back rolling in it, and I thought I’d recommend these guys to everyone. They are pretty funny and entertaining, plus their builds are usually pretty interesting and help give me some ideas on what I want to do on our server. I linked BdoubleO’s youtube channel in the podcasts on the right, as well as the MindCrack website that he and GenerikB belong too.
We are heading back into Minecraft! Going to get a server up and running again soon. Going to keep it fairly plugin free this time, (no dragon rides or anything) but will make sure to try and get a dynamic map setup again. I’ll post information here as we get things going.
Update: Server is up, Map is up, Get ahold of me or leave a message here and I will get you the server address.
