Idea for the next Project - Community World
Permalink   
 

Alright, I'm bringing this up because I want this to be in mind when we decide to embark on another Project.

The idea is this:

One world save, that is passed between Community members. How would this work, you ask? In the following way.

There is one thread for this Project. When you want to play on the world, you post 'Taken' in this thread, then play on the world, as long as you want without passing a certain maximum time (e.g- 6 hours). Then you zip the world save, upload it, and post the link back on the thread. this goes in a loop.

There are a few other things, like that if someone has already taken it and not returned it, you can't take it. Also- I think you shouldn't be able to take it twice in a row (this is the other reason for the long maximum time).

Pros:

Community Pariticipation. You can just say, these are my diamonds, could you not take them? Or, if someone needs some clay, he could ask someone else if they have any.

Cooperation in builds, and the ability to view in-game, other peoples builds.

We can do this at the same time as the current project, since you be able to play this world 24/7.

Cons:

You can't play at the same time.

It's annoying to zip folders and upload them.

 

A few other things-

There would be no mods (unless agreed on), no cheating, and total respect of other peoples items and builds. I don't think we would have problems with this, but still.

 

So yeah, thats my idea. I feel that although it's a great idea to continue the current Project, we should also branch into other concepts. If you have any feedback/ideas, please tell me. Also, tell me when you would want to start this (After the current project, during the current project, not at all, right now) and so on.

 

Thanks! Wartower9.

I've seen topics like this all the time on the MC Forums and I usually ignore them :/ Sorry wartower :(
But if you want to do it, sure.
I'm quoting you here: "Alright, I'm bringing this up because I want this to be in mind when we decide to embark on another Project."
Does this mean in addition to AMCWAS or instead of?

To be honest - I know I currently have 2 or 3 different Minecraft related projects going on; however when 1.3 comes out I'll be dedicating 99.99% of my time to "Harmony" (my AMCWAS world) and I don't think I'll have the time, energy or inclination to do additional projects. If we only have the world for say 6 hours or so, that's fine (I think) - I will wait and see what everyone else thinks before saying "yes" to this.

Ok, I get what you mean.
Personally, I see what we're doing now (the beowulf seed Project), as only part of AMCWAS. We've really come together as a group, and it shows. I think that at some point (could be anytime, soon or a long time from now) we'll want to do another thing. That's why I brought this up- so that there is a concept already thought of.

The thing with 6 hours could be shortened (4 hours maybe), and remember- you could play for half an hour as well.
I understand completely what you mean with the different projects.

I love this idea, and would love to be a part of it, but with my Internet, it would take an hour or two just to download the file, and then another hour or two to upload. So until I get better Internet (which may be anywhere between a few months and a few years), I'ma choose to stay out of it.

I love the concept and have been tempted by the threads I see on the MC Forums but with such a large, anonymous group I stayed away.

It would work much better in our small friendly group. I'm all for it, so I say yes, but maybe not right now. Later on, perhaps, when we start to lose interest in our current project (I hate to even type that but I always end up losing interest and want to start over or try something else...hopefully not for a while though!)

I understand, especially with your situation t_gilbert. Of course, we could make sure they were zipped.

So yeah, I get the point. Lets shelf this idea for the meantime, but it mihgt be interesting to come back to it at some point.

Yeahh, sounds good. We definitely should come back to it, though. One day.
