I’m kind of in FFXIV hiatus again, waiting for the next “patch” to see the new changes. I should be logging in more, I guess but I am kind of anxious to see a few of the new features, so I just feel like waiting a bit.
Plus, I’ve been bitten by the Minecraft bug once again. Upon my hubby’s request, I scoured the internet trying to find a multiplayer server that we’d fit into. We tried a few, but then about 3 or 4 days ago now, we stumbled across one that is actually even located in the same state as us funny enough. We spent entirely too much time playing over the weekend as well.. lol.
The first day, Blindrage and I logged in, registered as we were instructed, and then gained build rights to a very new server. This server is a RP Survival server, who encourages the players to create town-type settlements. Different than how we have always played, it sounded interesting so we figured we’d try it out. We came across a tall mountain spewing with lava into a lake, and decided that was kind of a neat area to make our home. We dug it out, and put glass behind the lava so that we could utilize some of its light inside. We made multiple rooms to allow shelter for others while they waited out the night, or even to join us in the town endeavor.
Within a few hours, another two new members joined, and we invited them to join our “town” in the making. They both seem very nice, and they invited another member even making our town’s population @ 5.
We named the town Waterhaven, and have been dutifully working on it ever since, although I will admit, that our town members appear to be far more prolific than I am in terms of building production.. lol. Although, I have a grand idea in the works that I’m hoping they will all like when I am done. Its kind of a surprise. ^^
Blindrage has made a beautiful lighthouse and a very nice greenhouse made of birch and glass. He made a water feature that we will be adjusting later. He has a cactus farm too. Blind also came up with the lighted pool to go in front of Martin’s expansive hotel, and it turned into a big hit. We ended up adding another layer and some water because they had made a crazy high diving board. I on the other hand made a more OSHA approved type version on the other side.. lol.
The second night we were on, the server was attacked by three griefers with hacks. They burned most of the forrests, and destroyed pretty much all of ours and even some of the neighboring towns buildings, stealing things from the chests, and PK’ing players multiple times. . I ended up recording a video of them in order to submit it to the server admin as proof as to what had happened. If you have a multiplayer server, watch out for these guys. The players tried to fight them back, but it was hard.
The admin banned them and rolled back the map, which was very nice of him. We were very thankful.
Here is a map of our town. Don’t get too obsessed with the boarders shown, they are my best guesses. I don’t really know where the official lines are, but then all towns are constantly growing, so there probably isn’t anything too official in place. There is something in place as our town is now protected in most areas against griefers, and you can only build inside town if you have permissions to do so.
I made a youtube video taking a tour of it, but the sound was horrible so I have some tweaking to do to figure out what is wrong. Commentary is barely audible while game sounds are pretty loud.
Once I get it figured out though, I’ll post something here.
Have a whole other day to mess with it before the FFXIV update, so I likely will be doing that.
