This video is a very good tutorial on how to craft and use fireworks in the new snapshot as the creative ones dont work!

ryanboys3 reacted in Mojang / Minecraft Terms and Conditions of Use
Not sure how many of you will read this, probbaly very few, but one of the things talked about at minecon was terms and conditions and brand naming and what they are / arn't ok with.
Just logged into mojang.com today and I had to agree to some new terms and conditions, some of you may like to read them, its easy reading and quite interesting, well at least I thought so.
I wanted to make sure the name "Yet Another Minecraft Server" is not breaking any rules.
I'm pretty sure we are not as part of it states "ensure that the Name (which includes any confusingly similar name) is not the first word and donâ€˜t use any other aspect of any of our Brands or Assets as part of any related branding, including as or as part of any logo. This applies especially if you want to set up and run blogs, servers, community forums, fan sites, fan clubs, news groups, events and gatherings."
I think I will however contact Mojang just for an official resonse, would be nice for one, though as I said I'm pretty sure no rules broken as we are not a comericial entitiy.

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]
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.
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!

Can't get on, but I see two people online

Haha, I see same thinng, but kinda suspicious that it may be 2 "invisible" people cuz there has been 2 people on for about 2.5 hours now
ryanboys3 reacted in Grandparents
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.

Ah well I guess we're not in Kansas anymore!
ryanboys3 reacted in 06/10/2012 - New Test Build World Open!
Nearly a year ago (9th of October 2011) we opened up the test area in the old world ([url="http://www.darrenstraight.com/minecraft/index.php?/topic/1090-09102011-new-test-build-area-open/"]see post here[/url]), I had high hopes for this place but even after I removed the 1x diamond fee shortly after it opened, it never really kicked off. I have various thoughts on why it didnâ€™t work, however thatâ€™s not what I'm here to talk about today.
I'm here today to announce that we are yet again giving another go at this, this time however it will be a separate world called the â€œtest build worldâ€ which has mystical powers!
This place has been setup to allow people to show their ideas and designs to others of things that could be included in the normal world or that could be included in existing projects, so for example: You could use it to help you build designs for the University, North West corner town or Halloween area.
Ok so I guess I should tell you how to get here? Well I would love to but I forgot where the entrance to it wasâ€¦ I remember going to tell someone where the entrance was then all I remember is this bright light, Iâ€™m wondering if my memory got wiped because I told someone, not absolutely sure though so if you do find it best not tell or hint to anyone how to get thereâ€¦
Ohh I do have this photograph though, maybe the entrance is somewhere in it? Iâ€™ll let you go and investigate.
EDIT: Photo may take a while to load below... :)
ryanboys3 reacted in 13/09/2012 - YAMS Adventure back in time
Wow where has time gone? Nearly a year ago, on the 18th of September 2011 Mojang gave us Minecraft Beta 1.8 [url="http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Adventure_Update"]The Adventure Update[/url], a major update to Minecraft focused on fighting, exploration, and adventuring.
But how many of you remember what it was like to be a fighter, explorer or adventurer in YAMS first world? Yes there was a world before the one we are in now! We have been in the current one for nearly 8 months now.
The poor world was struggling to keep up with the times but still survives in the archives collecting dust. Itâ€™s time to uncover it for an adventure back in time to the last days of YAMS 1st world.
This Saturday the 15th of September 2012 at 12:00pm BST ([url="http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=YAMS+Adventure&iso=20120915T12&p1=136"]click here for your time[/url]) the adventure begins for at least 24 hours.
You can join in at any time! There will be things to do throughout the 24 hours.
How to get there will be explained on the day, latest news of what you can do will be posted here.

A massive thank you to everyone who has liked my posts over the past year or so, I have now achieved my 1000 like goal. I guess I better set myself a new forum goal now? In the meantime, please find a little present in your town house. Sorry sandboxers I havenâ€™t got round to you..
ryanboys3 reacted in YAMS Coliseum Hosts Battle Arena [OFFICIAL]
Back in July of this year, YAMS had it's grand opening for the YAMS Coliseum v2 where [url="http://www.darrenstraight.com/minecraft/index.php?/topic/2472-yams-coliseum-v2-grand-opening-july-2012-official/"]I invited everyone[/url] to come and play Mob Arena with me, killing mobs for prizes!
Now 4 months latter and we havent used the coliseum in a while, so I thought hey lets use it for something again after all I built it to host multiple events, just lack time to organise these things when I'm having to deal with bad players!
Anyway this time we are going to be playing Battle Arena, which is basically pvp fighting! Some of you will die... Some of you will survive... But you will all have fun! or at least I hope so.
If you would like to play, head on down to the main coliseum entrance archway just north of sandbox (on the way to snowheim) where you will find a sign board with further instructions.
Really hope you all enjoy the games, I've made it simple to play to start with and will add more options depending on how well it turns out.
Well good luck and thanks goes to steerpikesister for helping me yesterday finish the arena off + testing.
[b]EDIT:[/b] There are currently 2 bugs, one where your team wool hat may still appear on you after playing (I ask that you remove it please) and two that you cant join another game until you disconnect and reconnect.
ryanboys3 reacted in Passwording doors and such. [SUGGESTION]
Just found this on youtube
Its to do with the new update with anvils allowing naming items. I think it would be rather cool, and we should be able to implement it somewhere, really! Not sure where as of yet, but here it is as a reference! 8D
Just think its cool cos its not a plugin or anything (like lockette) but is too big to go into houses and such, I think.
