ICMC: The Restart

BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats !SoCal Icrontian
edited Feb 2012 in Minecraft
The time is near my Minecrafting friends.

Date: February 4th

Time: Noon Eastern, 11AM Central, 9AM Pacific.

Where: minecraft.ardichoke.info
Voice: Vent

What to expect: The goal is explore and settle a spawn point. This is a community event. We would like you to come help create a welcoming server for everyone. Personal builds will be more then welcome but we would like to focus on Community for at least the first day.
Update 02/01/12: The Spawn courtyard will be 49x49. Our first goal on Restart day will be to make a barrier around this and light it up. After that I will start laying out the map with markers (cobblestone probably) and we can work on assigning the first plots!

Map: I will be staying on most of the day to answer any questions and set the lay of the land. Working on laying out ICManor and then ICTown and ICIndustry within. If there is time I may start laying out plots in The Oulands. If you would like to request a plot in ICTown, ICIndustry or The Outlands, see this thread. I will be working on a map based on requests and requirements.

Beforehand I will start up a world with the seed I have in mind just to make sure we don't spawn in lava or something like that (for those of you that remember our original spawn, you'll understand that one).

Ark: In case you are interested, you have the ability to ship some of your items to the new world. These items will not be available the day of the reset. They will be available after spawn is settled. I will pick a place and "move" the chests over. If you want to have some of your items from the current world moved over you simply need to create a chest at current world ICTown station with your items and place a sign next to it indicating it is your "Ark" items. As time gets closer I will give you guys a heads up that I will be going on to take inventory of the chests for moving.
Update 02/01/12: I'll be taking the "Ark" inventory on Friday 2/3, Please have your finalized items in your chests and your chest clearly labeled. Anything placed in the chests after Noon (Pacific) on Friday can not be guaranteed.
Update 02/03/12: Ark images done.

This thread is a work in progress, I will update it as needed.

    HAHAHA! Holy crap, never saw that Reggie pic coming on Icrontic of all places. Well done Ardi.

    So we still have time to select ark stuff, right? I've been a bit out of the loop as of late.

    And we cannot deconstruct something from the old world to ark it over?

    Yup. Simply create a chest at ICTown Station (You'll see the other 6-7 chests there)

    Not sure what you mean by this. If you want to take something down, put the items in your chest and reconstruct it on the new server, that is perfectly fine. We won't be moving any objects. I will essentially recreate the chests on the new map.

    That's what I meant. My fluttershy, I would like to bring it along, considering how much of a pain in the butt it was to build.

    I'd rather spend my time on the new server mining for a new pixel art.

    Updated OP to set in stone Noon Eastern as the time.

    No need to sign up. Just be on vent on the 4th at Noon (EST).

    Everyone note that server will go down earlier in the day. I am going to work with Ardi on getting the new map generated and then we will give everyone the go to hop on. Best to be in Vent so you can stay up on what is going on. We will give the go when the new world is ready.

    Also everyone who is "in" please make sure you have build perms Before the 4th. Individual build Perms will not be a priority for the first few hours.

    Bump, I'm excited.

    Updated OP with initial goal and Ark due date. Further working on the layout and going to find the seed tonight.

    Can i request not a plot but a plot thickener?
  • LincLinc Community Instigator Detroit, MI Icrontian
    @UPSLynx Could you save me a plot in town near you? I won't be able to attend as I have a previous engagement in my other surreal building experience.

    How do we go about achieving this assurance?

  • TushonTushon I'm scared, Coach Dallas Icrontian
    Try to build something in world. If you can't, you don't have build perm and need to message bobby. If you can build something, then you are good.
  • LincLinc Community Instigator Detroit, MI Icrontian
    @BobbyDigi Going to bow out so no need to reserve a plot for me. I have real-world Minecraft to play.

    This. If you have ever built on the current world you should have no worries if you are set for the new world.

    @Lincoln Understood. If you ever want to hop on, there will be plenty of plots :-D

    Got it. I was afraid that you were trying to say that this was a seperate list we were to have signed up for at some point. If it's not changed from existing server, then I'm good to go. :)

    Good Lord I LOL'd
  • CantiCanti =/= smalltime http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9K18CGEeiI&feature=related Icrontian
    I need a plot in town somewhere. Nothing special, it just needs to be big enough to hold at least 100 cats.
  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Not as tall as Bobby Tallbeer. Twilight Sparkle is overrated. Meechigan Icrontian
    I think we should reserve a specific plot for @Lincoln, anyway.

    We should also build a scale model of ICHQ 2.0 somewhere in ICTown.

    A. That's the plan ;)

    B. That would be awesome. There are a few areas around spawn that are meant for expansion. If a group decides to take that on, it shall be done.

    -Digi
  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL Icrontian
    I would definitely be up for helping make a representation of ICHQ 2.0... It'd be easier if we had a floor plan so if one of the locals could help out with that...
  • GnomeQueenGnomeQueen Giggles Mountain Dew Mouth Icrontian
    I'm thinking about restarting, but I haven't played in ages and I have no idea what's up....

    Are there any good graphics packages out right now? Back in the day I used dokucraft.
  • BHHammyBHHammy Somewhere in Hell Icrontian
    Would anyone mind if I made us an (Unofficial) Icrontic Painterly Pack? Something that we could refer folks to if they want a uniform texture pack so we can see what everyone else is seeing when they build.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    I'd have no issues with it, though these days I use the Photorealism pack, and I love it to death.
  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Not as tall as Bobby Tallbeer. Twilight Sparkle is overrated. Meechigan Icrontian
    Same here. I've been using Sphax for a while now, myself.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    I'm a default guy.

    -Digi
  • colacola the dick man himself Right behind you Icrontian
    Default ftw.
  • BHHammyBHHammy Somewhere in Hell Icrontian
    Alright, alright. Well then, I'm gonna go ahead and just throw it up. I did my best to try and keep it mostly faithful to the default pack so that the differences in architecture and items won't be too drastic from it.

    At the very least, download it and drop it in your texture packs folder.

    Initial connection test successful. New map will be generated shortly followed by further admin testing. Approximately 1/2 an hour 'til the gates are open.

    The world has been reset. I'm keeping a permanent (or as permanent as possible anyway) copy of the last backup for anyone that wants it.

  • AlexDeGruvenAlexDeGruven Not as tall as Bobby Tallbeer. Twilight Sparkle is overrated. Meechigan Icrontian
    Just a thought. Did we happen to take a map picture before we started tearing everything apart. It would be great to see the progress after the first 24 hours. It's amazing already just how much it changed between when I left at 2pm, and came back again around 5.
  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    If I recall, @UPSLynx said that he was taking screenshots
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    Yes, I've been taking screenshots through the day as things have progressed.
  • UPSKingpinUPSKingpin Sir Elkhart, IN Icrontian
    Huge props to @BobbyDigi and @ardichoke for making all this happen. They've really stepped it up and made this a great experience for everyone, and it hasn't gone unnoticed. We had a couple hiccups, but altogether it was an excellent day. Got loads accomplished. After 43,000 blocks, I'm calling it a day. Looking forward to the future of the server.

  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    Real talk. Agreed on what @UPSKingpin said. I didn't get to play very much because I had company over this weekend, but what time I did spend playing was fantastic. You guys have really outdone yourselves this time.

    Plus, I got trapped while being AFK like 20 times today. Some sort of record.
