#26003 No Minecon taking place this year...

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 22 August 2014 - 12:13 PM

I might be able to go... I start uni in September, so it depends on what's going on in the Spring. Also cost might be an issue for me, not sure how much these things usually cost. It would be nice to meet up, having known most of the people on here for a long time :)




#25373 The Future of YAMS for 2014 [FEEDBACK]

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 24 March 2014 - 07:37 PM

Sorry for the late post - lazy slime is lazy  :ph34r:

 

I first logged into YAMS in September 2011, having not really spent a lot of time in multiplayer. The previous servers I had been on were big, and no one was very social. When I first logged on, I was taken aback by how friendly and sociable people were. Everyone was super friendly, and I soon got settled in (after a minor rule infraction...).

In the 2.5 years since, I've spent a great deal of time on the server. I applied to be a CSO not long after joining, and became part of the staff team, eventually becoming a moderator. Even though I'm no longer on as much as I used to be, I still care a great deal about the server, and I pop on when I can.

 

That said, it is not hard to notice the decline in player numbers we have had over the past few months. I remember when the server used to always have at least 3-4 players online, and when the nights were equally as busy as during the day. People will always come and go from the server, though there are always those of us who have stayed long term.

 

I've made some amazing friends during my time on YAMS, some just on the server, and some irl  ;)

I think it would be a great shame if our little community were to end, and we'd eventually lose ties with each other. I should be going to university next year, so my time on the server will be reduced even further than it is now. It would be great knowing that the server is still there, for when I have free time on my hands.

 

For as long as cost isn't an issue, I think we should try to maintain our community and keep the server running. We seem to have a little stream of whitelist applications on the forums, and perhaps new people would be more inclined to come on if they saw more players online.

 

-Nick

#24942 01/01/2014 - Happy New Year Everyone for 2014

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 01 January 2014 - 12:17 AM

Happy New Year!! :D

 

Maybe a UHC style event? From what I've seen they're quite fun.




#24707 Away for the weekend...

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 12 December 2013 - 09:14 PM

Greetings all :)

 

Tomorrow, I am going on a school trip to CERN. For those of you who do not know, CERN is where the Large Hadron Collider is located, in Geneva, Switzerland. It's all full of science, so it should be rather fun and exciting.

Basically it's a big circle in which atoms whiz around, and eventually they smash into each other. The scientists then look at the pieces.

If you want an idea of the size of the big circle, here is picture from the Internets...

The circumference is 27 km (17 miles)

I'll be away for 3 days, returning on Sunday afternoon/evening. Might post some photos...

 

Cheers - Nick :)

#24497 Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!!

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 18 November 2013 - 09:37 PM

Kind of wish Christopher Eccleston had accepted to take part too though. :(

 

Don't forget that Paul McGann denied any involvement with the 50th Anniversary, and yet he appeared in the short prequel. Perhaps it's an elaborate cover up!  :ph34r:




#24442 Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!!

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 14 November 2013 - 04:56 PM

Well, the BBC released a short prequel to the 50th Anniversary special earlier today! Here it is! Fans of the classic series may particularly enjoy this one :P

All we need now are more ideas for rooms!

If you go to the testing world there's already the one that Zhon and I build, so feel free to experiment.

Lets try and get this done before Halloween :P

 

Sorry the picture is so big...

Made a garden/park thing in place of the glass. Thoughts?

#24053 Minecraft Snapshot 13w41a

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 10 October 2013 - 03:20 PM

So a new snapshot has just been released.

It's got some exciting stuff in it, so I'll just post some pictures.

If you see something that no one has noticed yet, post a picture!

Stained glass blocks! :D

Stained glass panes! :D

Not sure if this was in the previous snapshot, but the graphics are a lot smoother when you look at them further away. It makes the game look a lot smoother :)

 




#23930 02/10/2013 - YAMS Halloween 2013

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 02 October 2013 - 06:01 PM

Skin competition? That would definitely be fun!

Would have to have a "no plagiarism rule" though :P

 

And hurray for Fang! :D




#23648 Minecraft snapshot 13w36a

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 05 September 2013 - 04:37 PM

Was browsing the Minecraft related interwebs, and came upon this screenshot of a new biome in the snapshot. It's called 'Ice Plains Spike' biome.

I think it looks absolutely awesome :D

#23171 South: Maplehold

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 11 August 2013 - 06:21 PM

A roller coaster is a great idea, I recall Woodbridge (a wooden town in the previous world) also had a roller coaster. The hills behind the treehouse where the bridge is would make an ideal area to build it in, as we can make use of the unused space, and the bridge which links the two hills :)




#22927 Away till Wednesday...

Posted by Captain_Marbles on 24 July 2013 - 03:45 PM

Well, I got back earlier this afternoon, and I have to admit that I had a great time!

The weather was perfect, if a little too hot... but we were walking through a thunderstorm on the last day, which was both exciting and refreshing. Also a little disgusting as the I could taste 3 days worth of sweat trickling down my face...

I also got bitten to death by midges on the 3rd night, as they got into the tent which was rather unpleasant.

Overall though, I had a fantastic time. We ascended the highest peak on the island, which was almost 900m high. And doing that while carrying a 14 kilo bag on your back is no small feat :)

 

Here are a few pictures I took whilst there...
