Request - Section for In-Game Books

Post by Seaborgium on Mon Aug 13, 2012 6:48 am

Well everyone, I kind of doubt this will happen, but since 1.3, you can now write books. You can copy text from other places and simply paste them into a book, so in my opinion it's better to write things in other places before you write them in a book (that way you can make more copies.) Well, I feel like if we start writing enough original content, that we should have a section on the forums for books people have written. Once again, I doubt this would happen, but I think it'd be nice. And mods, if this is in the wrong section, feel free to move it - sorry. Thanks everyone - also, I made a poll, so if you want to, feel free to vote on it.

You should have checked with me about this first..Oh, well.

I did have plans for SOMETHING like this, however, though if any books are meant to be canon, they're going to have to be run by me for approval.

There's something that people might want to consider, however. Books in Minecraft can only fit a small amount of text on each page- copypasting can be helpful, but also difficult. A paragraph on this forum can be multiple pages.

Hee hee... I remember the first book I wrote. It was a manual for my TNT cannon...

Faelar, do you think it would be feasible to have someone copy parts of the DoT lore into books and have them stored in town main libraries?

Another idea: it isn't easy to make books with a lot of text. The forum is probably the best place to write long stories and histories. Books are good for notetaking, and diaries, where you write a little bit at a time.

As a matter of fact, I'm already working on this. :D It will take me some time, though- There's a way to mass manufacture the books for me, but there are some complications I need to work out.

The first of many volumes of the beastiary, however, is complete. Apparently, the beastiary greatly exceeds 50 pages.

A section on the forums for books that were/are/will be made in game?
I'll lock this thread, leave it open for discussion and PM Fae about it, see if we can work something out.
