09/01/2014 - YAMS 3rd Year Anniversary

Recommended Posts

Wow... just wow... 3 years of running YAMS, when I set-up YAMS 3 years ago I had no idea we would still be here today, but I'm glad we are, while there have been both bad and good times, it's been an enjoyable experience and I'm proud to be a part of our family friendly community server.
For the previous 2 anniversaries I gave story timeline posts of YAMS, detailing key things that happened in YAMS at what times. You can see them here (YAMS 1st Year Anniversary / YAMS 2nd Year Anniversary).
This year I'm not going to give you so much a story timeline, but rather explain to you why we run YAMS the way we do so you can get a better understanding of YAMS and help us shape the future of YAMS. You can read this post here (The Future of YAMS for 2014).
But before you disappear into the future...
I would like to invite you all to celebrate 3 years of YAMS with me, this Saturday the 11th of January 2014 at 4:00pm GMT / 11:00am EST / 10:00am CST / 8:00am PST (See correct time for your country by clicking here) for a very special community event.
I will also be holding various other community events from now till then... keep an eye open for details in this topic/post.
If anyone wants to do anything in YAMS to celebrate 3 years just go ahead and do so, if you think you need approval for something just ask a member of staff, I'm sure they will ok it or help you get it approved, it's all about celebrating. :D

Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to make 4 today as it turns out I'm going to this ski place, I think I can make any celebrations after 10 probably or tomorrow! :) Have fun guys - and take loads of pictures!

Thanks to everyone that showed up today, people came and went throughout the day, but it was a good turn out.




We played The Tower of Babel game (You fight against another team and the goal is to reach the platform with a sand tower faster than your opponent. But you can destroy each others towers as well as those players trying to build it.):




We played a game called ColorShuffle (You start on a multicoloured floor and have to run to the randomly selected colour before the time runs out and the floor falls out from beneath you. Each time the timer gets faster!)




We visited WellWorld again (A mix of different biomes):




And we went on an adventure far north covering over 16,000 blocks of terrain in one direction (with nightly stops to build a camp). We even got to see ice spikes! :O




To finish it off we played some more ColorShuffle and some Infected.


All in all, a good day. :D


To those who didn't attend, you can still visit the the archaeological dig just out side of spawn on the west bound red rails. Go and take a wander through the tunnels and see what you find.  :)

Next day travelling



Surprising found a beautiful Spiked biome


Another attempt to grow wheat... But nothing

I had a great day! Unfortunately I didn't get pictures of the other events, but I'm sure someone else did. I'd like to say a massive thank you to Darren and everyone else for keeping this server so enjoyable! :)

If you didn't know already, the archaeological reference earlier was towards the old spawn towers buried in the desert, there was a magical portal here to take you back in time to YAMS 1st World. This portal in time has now closed. Hope you had fun. :)

I've generated and uploaded a cartograph (aerial imagery) of the over 16,000 blocks exploration we did, thought some of you might like it. :)


I recommend using a proper browser on a PC/Laptop to see it and don't forget you can zoom in with mouse wheel or buttons.



And here are some approximate coordinates to help you find the base camps if you cant find them on your own!


Spawn: X = 123  Z = 243

1st night camp: = X = 41  Z = -2222

2nd night camp: X = 125  Z = -4915

3rd night camp: X = 110  Z = -6710

4th night camp: X = 0  Z = -9515

5th night camp: X = 10  Z = -11615

6th night camp: X = 40  Z = -13670

7th night camp: X = 80  Z = -16230
