    Apologies for the lack of posts in here recently, I'm a pro at crastinating

    Anyways, we need a new project to work on. We also need to decide what to put inside the tree house, as the exterior is finished. And I want it to be used too, not just something that serves no proper purpose other than to fill an empty space. Wrack your brains

    So for the new project, it has been decided that we can't have a shopping centre. The shops there would steal business from the spawn shops, and we want to keep things central. I think the design in the testing world is great, and I really like it, but we just can't have it . We could always re purpose it though.
    So please try and think of something we could have, perhaps in the same place the shopping centre would have been, which is in the tunnel which leads to the brewing and enchantment buildings.
    There are spaces on top of the two hills with the giant bridge, perhaps something could go there?
    People from other towns, feel free to leave some suggestions too


    There are also some empty spaces in the main town close to the river, where the old farm used to be

    Ok so I know it's not christmas time yet but thats no reason to not get in the spirit and I also know I said I we won't be doing a christmas area until Halloween area is finished (you snails haha) but I'm not that much of a scrooge that id cancel christmas!

    So I would like to officially announce that we are doing something for christmas again this year! Wooo!

    Last year we did:
    [*]A make over of the Winter Wonderland town with Santas grotto and such.
    [*]A separate christmas world with a giant snowman, christmas tree and advent calendar which had presents inside for each day! [u][color="#0066cc"]See this post here.[/color][/u]
    [*]A build challenge where you used your own materials to build christmas builds! There was a competition which namscupcake won by default as no one else took part! Shocking!
    [*]A carol concert area where you could build christmas music using redstone and noteblocks. There was a gift card for the winner! Ryanfenton won it! [url="http://www.darrenstraight.com/minecraft/index.php?/topic/1431-yams-carol-concert-official"]See this post here.[/url]
    [*]Dragon Attack On Christmas Eve. [url="http://www.darrenstraight.com/minecraft/index.php?/topic/1543-dragon-attack-on-christmas-eve/"]See this post here.[/url]
    [*]And more...
    This year, I propose the following:[list]
    [*]To create a small christmas winter wonderland village in an area near snowheim, you can find this area by taking the minecart from spawn towards snowheim in the north (black rails) then going east (purple rails) until you find a sign in the middle of the road! See attached image below.
    [*]To bring back the same christmas world from last year but this time instead of survival mode... I will let you go creative! Though if you do go to the christmas world you will loose any items + experience you have on you on your return, sorry people its the only easy way that doesnt mess up peoples inventories which some plugins do.
    [*]To have a survival world... that's all I can say... though it's very fun to explore!
    [*]To have some contests again... I dont mind using my own money again to give out some small gift cards for steam or amazon as long as long as we come up with a good contest and people actually take part along with appreciation.
    [*]More.... ?
    Ok everyone what do you think?

    We need to start building the christmas village ASAP thats for sure, once we have that I can open up the other worlds and you'll want to get there after all theres gifts in the advent calendar waiting for you as todays the 1st of December!

    Here's a video I posted last year, this is quite old now and theres lots of new materials now but at least it gets you started. We would have to decide in what material to build the place of course: redbrick, wood, wool etc... but either way we really need to get the village done by say next weekend! Everything else can go on hold.


    DOnt forget pics below, 1st is of the space we will be using for the christmas village and the 2nd is the creative christmas world from last year when it was survival mode only, no excuses this year for not making anything there!

    I hope you can all indulge me for a brief post that is away from the fun of gaming and is a little sad.

    Our lives are shaped by a multitude of people that we encounter throughout our lives. Some friends, some family, and it always hurts when we lose them. Last year I suffered my first big loss in the shape of my Granddad, it was a surprise that no one truly saw coming. But a year on and I still remember him and the stories of his life that will now live on through me, my sister, my cousins, and the next few generations who we will recount those stories to.

    Stories such as how his nickname when growing up was jamjar, as he used to collect old jam jars to sell for spare cash, or how when he was a boy during world war II he collected his ration stamps to buy a suit, on his way home wearing that new suit a bomb went off and he got sent flying through a greenhouse (tearing the suit to bits) when the ambulance came the paramedics declared that there was nothing they could do, luckily (for my granddad as well as my existence) an American GI was walking past, saw the incident and said no we can save him. My Granddad lived till the age of 82.

    This morning about 15 minutes prior to writing this sentence I learned that my other granddad who throughout my live has been known to me as my Ollie died peacefully in his sleep, age 76, after suffering from cancer, lung problems, as well as various other problems. He lived a long and varied life, and his memory will also be fondly remembered for generations to come. For example how, he originally trained to become a blacksmith when the time come that he had to sign up for national service. He and his friend decide to sign up for the Merchant Navy and they got a little drunk beforehand, when they went to sign up his friend took the right turn, my Ollie took a wrong turn and signed up for the Royal Navy. Although he had this mistake he spent many years serving his country even though he would just say was his job.

    My Ollie was one of the strongest people I have ever known.

    I am sorry for the depressing tone of this post, but to be honest the typing has helped me to release some feelings that I needed to get out. We all have people in our lives that we will miss when they have gone, but remember, just remember those memories that make them special and they will never die in our minds and in our hearts.

    Now I'm going to go, but I am going to leave you will a thought and a challenge. Tell the people who you care about that you love them and give them a hug, tell your friends hey your awesome and then shake their hands (see Louis Armstrong - What A Wonderful World), and most of all remember the good times but never the bad.

    d8g4cnd24_h7 reacted in 23/10/2012 - YAMS and Minecraft 1.4.1   
    Minecraft 1.4.1 has been pushed back a day and will be released Thursday the 25th of October 2012, though I expect the version number may change a few times by the time we move over to it.... what do I mean by the time we move to it?

    Well we cant update the server to Minecraft 1.4.x straight away for the simple fact that we have to wait until Bukkit / CraftBukkit and various plugins have updated themselves to the latest version of Minecraft, without these plugins we could not guarantee the smooth running of YAMS. There is currently no statement from Bukkit concerning Minecraft 1.4, however as soon as they post one, if they do, I'll let you know.

    We have in the past sometimes run castaway world, in which we go pure vanilla with a new world, this means no plugins at all and anything like that. However as before this time round with so many projects on the go within YAMS we will not being doing this. We need to focus on the Halloween area within the main world!

    I suggest you do not update to Minecraft 1.4. However should you wish to go and play 1.4.x without us then please make a copy of your bin folder or the minecraft.jar file so you can come back and play on YAMS if you get bored!

    It is important you do this before you update if you wish to come back to YAMS before we update.

    Bin folder located at the following locations ( “~” = username):

    [b]Windows 2000, XP, and Server 2003: [/b]C:\Documents and Settings\~\Application Data\.minecraft
    [b]Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and R2:[/b] C:\Users\~\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft
    [b]Linux:[/b] /home/~/.minecraft
    [b]Mac:[/b] ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft

    You can also find this location by going to Texture Packs (on the main menu) -> Open Texture pack folder -> Then going up a level till you see the bin folder. Or for example on windows you could type in your explorer bar %appdata%/.minecraft

    If you forget to do take a copy of you bin file etc, you will need to use a program like [url="http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/800346-tool-mcnostalgia-211-now-works-with-124/"][color=#0F72DA]McNostalgia[/color][/url] to come back, however bear in mind this takes a while to update.

    As always I will keep you updated on the latest news of updating, if you have any concerns relating to YAMS and 1.4.x please feel free to ask in here and I'm sure someone will be able to answer you. Though some questions we wont know the answer too till it happens!

    Last time Bukkit took 5 days lets hope for something similar, though bear in mind this wasnt a fully stable version but I wanted you lot to come and enjoy the server again, so please remember things may take a little while to be fully sorted.

    Thank you,
    Darren and the rest of the YAMS Staff.
