Well, with several friends such as
and others - and also my archnemesis
who I hate to play with but I guess I've got no choice
- these days I play Minecraft a WHOLE fucking lot.
What started out as a friendly Creative only server where we built much crap..
Like a Palace with a Giant Pikachu nearby
, or even importing maps from Minecraft Maps like a big part of Kalos or even the Dangan Ronpa acadamy.. or Redstone constructions which shoot players around. These things were all based on Minecraft 1.8 .
That became a problem later on.. figuring that there were literally zero mods for Minecraft 1.8 and there were certain mods which really looked interesting.
One which basically sparked my interest back then was Pixelmon
and essentially that was the first mod we carried out testwise.
Pixelmon is essentially a mod which tries to integrate most of the Pokémon game mechanics to Minecraft. It adds catching, wild battles, trainer battles (though those seem to be broken on our server currently and no-one really knows why). One of the first screenshots of it was:
As you can see I was playing in Creative Mode there and well.. the version had to go down to 1.7.10 (where we still are). But yeah, this didn't stay.
First of all the new server was then started in Survival Mode. It also added a plugin to modify player models a bit (More Player Models 2
). It allows you to use mobs as player characters and such.. also you can scale your player model.
For a later thing we added Industrial Craft 2
as well as Buildcraft
. Many people would probably argue: why didn't we add even more mods or used mod packs: main thing.. each mod impacts the performance of the game. Several players among our group (like Lunassis
) use laptops or weak computers and Minecraft (despite looking simple) can be a real hardware eater - people like me or NuttyTheSenko
have no issues, our desktops are literally so powerful, we have the opposite problem: Minecraft is unable to utilize our computers properly.
Another cool mod we added is Biomes O Plenty
which adds much more variety to the landscape (screenshots are available here
But yeah.. ultimately.. we all love MMD.. and then THIS came.. a big thing.. called Custom Steve
. What does this thing allow, you wonder?
This Miku model isn't like an edit.. or whatever.. this Miku is an actual PMX file. So CustomSteve allows Minecraft to use PMX and PMD files as player models. And yeah... this is beyond awesome.
So yeah, everyone of us now uses their own OCs, a model they like or whoever while playing. Category: JUST ABSOLUTELY EPIC.
And yes, my persona is a shorty even in Minecraft.
To make things even more epic.. yes, these models can even dance to music. See the CustomSteve intro video here
