Minecraft Project - Aredale Phase 1 - The Wall

Throughout the last week I did not have any internet, therefore I was unable to play LoL, Diablo or any other of my main games. In order to compensate for this and to have something to do in my spare time I started a new project in minecraft as well as playing Diablo 2 single player once again, which I will talk more about in the days to come.

This map takes place on a custom terrain I have created specifically for this map. Aredale is going to be a large medieval city with many different features. I will be working on this map whenever I do not have internet or don't feel like playing anymore d2. This project is going to require a lot of time and work, which I am aware of and will probably take a long time to finish since I do not work on it very often.

The first step to creating Aredale was of course creating the custom terrain with a program known as world painter, which I then began creating a large medieval wall around the city, bear in mind all these blocks are placed by hand, no mods involved. There are large towers at the main gate as seen in the bottom picture. Also, you will be able to walk all the way around the city either on the top of the walls or inside of them with towers surrounding the city to access the wall from different areas.

These screenshots are for the purpose of showing the design of the walls rather than the size. It was impossible to capture even a third of the wall in one screenshot, even with maximum render distance.

As you can imagine, due to all the different layers of the wall it will defiantly take some time.

As of this post the wall is nearly complete and I have started planning 'phase 2' of this build, the ports.

Please stay tuned as I post more information and screenshots of this project, once I get more complete I will put the map available for download for whoever is interested.

Happy Gaming!

Unova RPG - Team Bulbasaur - Pokedex 1/718

After getting a couple full level 100 teams in Unova RPG, as well as beating all gym leaders/elite four I was left wondering what to do next. After some consideration I have decided my next step is to complete the Unova RPG pokedex. While in most other pokemon games this is not a huge accomplishment however, in Unova RPG this is a different story. Rather than catching one of every pokemon it is meant to capture one of every pokemon, of each type (Normal, Shiny, Metallic, Gold, Dark and Mystic) so this adds up to be 6 of every pokemon. But what makes this even more difficult is the fact that evolutions do not count, for example: If I had a full team of bulbasaurs and levelled them up and evolved them into Venusaurs it would only count towards my Venusaur on the pokedex, rather than Bulbasaur, Ivysaur and Venusaur.

So as you can see this will be a very long project but eventually it will be done.

I have completed my very first team for the pokedex, Bulbasaur. I have a long journey ahead but I am off to an alright start.

I will be posting along the way so please stay tuned as I work hard to complete this challenge!

On another note, my pokemon training website is now available to the public, it is still under construction but for the most part it is fairly functional. Pokemon Purchase

Happy Gaming!
