New Map? :O

Post by TheFrazzledKid on Thu Jun 30, 2011 11:33 am

So, I was thinking, this map is getting extremely full, and we're running out of ideas.
I was also thinking about the up-and-coming minecraft update, including ravines.
I was also thinking about properly setting up towns with limitations, and rp and such.
This would also increase players (Who could say no to a new map?), and be something different then going to a temp map while everything crashes due to the update.
So, oppinions on new map? I could also make the current one available for download.

I am against it... I haven't really heard of any issues( although there may be some) but there is a LOT of space left to build on. It may just not be in a town. I also feel that the towns we have show the growth of the server. It would be sad to see all the hard work put into them Go to waste....

Those are my reasons for my opinion.

EDIT: But if the majority want a new map than I would appreciate you making this a downloadable map for single-player. That way I could go in everyones house, and no one could stop me! >:D

Olde but recent. Only north and west are inhabited. diagonals are clear and so is south and far-east.

I honestly wouldn't mind a new map. We could set it up so that the map is based on our RP.

But I don't really mind. I was just thinking that we could start a brand new map once the full version of MC is out?

It would be.

So much more inspiration about what we want to build, and rebuilding your own creations knowing how to improve it

We could do so much more with a new map.

(As long as we don't have people building a town, and then never touching it ever again >.>)

Bubbles, if we do go to a new map, a crackdown on towns is in order. :D

Can we use Multiworld/Multiverse?
So that we can still use the current map?
Or at least like...
Archive the old one?
I'd have to take some deep thought about putting in a yes or no for obvious... sentimental attachments to the current map.

But, I have also actually saw this coming and have seen this happening because I remember when Lapis was added, I killed a world (after like 3 days of thinking) that was a few months old.

hrmmmmm i agree with having a new map i mean this one is great and all but with the amout of stuff we have and its just all over the place no one plot line

i also agree on towns crack down and lol yes the amout of times i have fonud an abbandened town is amazing

but i prupose that if we make a new map we have a single objective to achive and not 1000000000 different small ones that dont amount to much
like there is one plot line we follow it can branch off but not to much but if we do this i would like to down load the map so i dont lode my baby :3

An interesting idea I just had.

2 normal ranks, incomplete and complete members.

We have sets of towns and a story line that spans the world, the only way to advance is for a mod to teleport you to the next town via warping there and summoning them. "complete" members however, would be members that had completed the story-line and would be able to use warp (but not summon), to get to all the areas. The towns would have to be spread out (tens of thousands of blocks) to stop cheating. I think this could potentially be very, very fun.

Let's take this map for an example, Their creations are neat and tidy and aren't messy and all around the place.

We need a map that has themes, towns that have a good backstory. Places for people to fight and explore!

I'm against a new map. We have plenty of room left on our current one.

I say we should wait until at least the adventure update, when the game changes enough that it will be fresh I'd consider it..for now it's just..people have too much invested in this map, this map is a huge part of our community.

So there's my answer - No chance I'm gonna approve of that.

If anything keep Dawnbay as a relic of our past and make a new spawn town. I don't think our towns are messy at all, at least not the good ones.


And we already have a map based around our roleplaying, it's because a lot of our roleplaying is based inside of this map..

waw i agree with bubbles on this one that is somethink we should stride to achieve for

i would also like to put forwerd a teaming idear

like how once we have the rp story we devide everyone up into teams each team builds a city but is not limited to it for example a dwarf city, elf city, etc

that way we limit the amout of towns and all that

I just..don't agree. We've built what we have up from the ground up using legit materials, the only way we're going to achieve what you guys seem to want is through spawning things or spending another few months and having admins whip everyone.

I disagree with both. I'm surprised to see support for a map change, I've always assumed this map was as special to you guys as it is to me.

And when ravines come out we have A LOT of un-used space. We could easily walk out past Duskville or Cerberus for 2000 blocks and set a warp to see new things.

I'd be against multi world, too. No reason to split the community and unless we come up with a really great theme(aka excuse) I wouldn't like to see that.

Thinking, thinking, thinking..
I don't get the whole "If we get a new map, I won't play here anymore" argument..
You can either play here, and start again..
Or go to another server, and start again.. o_o
But multi-world sounds like a possiblity to me.
Also, PREPARE FOR AMAZING:

Frazz, I doubt I would play Minecraft on a public SMP server at all if we changed maps. I don't have the motivation to start over.

With that said I love our current map and will continue to play it for a long time if I'm allowed to.

I disagree with using multi-world, unless we can come up with a good RP reason for it it seems like it would just split the community. We have thousands and thousands of unexplored blocks in our existing world, unless you make the second world one with infinite items(which I would be very strongly against too) I don't see any point in having it.

Very curious to see how Fae feels about a world change from an RP aspect. We would have to rebuild all of our towns even if they were more spread out. Most of them have a place in our story to some extent.

I agree with Wind's first post. I think if we ever change maps at all, it should be after the Adventure update. Otherwise we're really just changing the map for ravines(Honestly not too exciting) and a crack down on towns(Which, no offense meant, could still be done on this map.)

Not to mention Wind's contest still has 3 days(Possible 6 was it?) to go on this map. And maybe, given the long span of time between now and the Adventure update, people will soften up to the idea of the map changing instead of doing it suddenly and people going "OMGWTFBBQ!1111!!!!!!one!!111shift!!11!!" Transition going into the new map would be smoother in my opinion.

Also that video was awesome.
