One of the players from our Minecraft Server, Orician, has made a promotional video for the server. It contains both Brickville, the city that players will spawn in, and the neighboring city. The video gives potential new players a quick look of what to expect and if you’re interested in adding yourself to the club, don’t hesitate to join!
My very own Minecraft server just launched (mc.torasko.com) and is now available to visit if you have a premium Minecraft account. The new world contains a pre-build town (Brickville) and currently uses LWC, WorldEdit and WorldGuard as plugins. Mobs are enabled and are still as dangerous as ever. Creepers can explode and kill players in the process, although no physical damage will be done to the surrounding environment. The same goes for TNT, which can explode and kill players without doing any damage to the blocks within the blast radius.
Feel free to come to the server and build anywhere you like. If you would like to build in or near any city, contact an operator for information before building anything. It is possible to defend yourself against potential griefers by asking a operator of choice to protect your house. From that moment nobody but you can add or remove blocks in that area but you and the operators of the server. You can also lock your doors, trapdoors, chests, furnaces etc. with the LWC plugin (/cprivate).
If you have any questions about the server, feel free to contact me within the Minecraft server or with the Contact page on this website. If you would like to see the map of the Minecraft world, then click here to check it out.
I’ve talked about the announcement and the released box art earlier this month, but today is the day that Ubisoft released the debut trailer of Assassin’s Creed III. It shows a couple of interesting things that will probably be included in the final game, such as massive open conflict and a lot of nature. Previous titles in the series relied on big cities to support the assassin’s free-running abilities, but it seems like we’re going to climb some trees in Assassin’s Creed III.
Assassin’s Creed III will use a new engine called “Ubisoft-AnvilNext”, which will bring improved visuals, animations and enemy AI with it. The game also takes place in one the most interesting time periods in American history, the American Revolution. Oh, and there will also be animals in the game!
The Games Developers Conference will take place this week in San Francisco, so I expect even more information coming soon. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited!
I’ve learned a new couple of things the last few days, including how to create new functions, and I wanted to implement what I’ve learned into a new version of Treasure of Algarath. This new version (v0.1.2) includes a brand new main menu, credits and a nice little license. Also, the first chapter has been finished and there is some new math to calculate some values. If you’re interested in the new version of Treasure of Algarath, then click here to download it. The source code of the game is also included in the package.
What to expect from future releases:
- Vectors and complex algorithms
- Items and an inventory
- Some randomness here and there
- Maybe a critter, who knows
Note that this project is being used purely to learn. There are no intentions to ever release it as a product.
Ubisoft confirmed the existence of Assassin’s Creed III back in February and revealed the box art of the game yesterday. I got pretty excited by seeing the cover of the boxed retail version and hearing the news that the game will be set during the American Revolution, which took place during the last half of the 18th century. On top of that, Ubisoft announced that Assassin’s Creed III will be released on October 30 for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
In a press release, Ubisoft said: “We confirm that Ubisoft will announce all the details of Assassin’s Creed III on Monday March 5th at 5pm.” I’m very excited to hear what the publisher has to say about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed III. Until then I’m playing Assassin’s Creed: Revelations and I will also probably watch The Patriot again.
