Well… Hello There!

Well… Hello There!

So… in terms of updates, there are many. However, I’ll start off with the usual apology: sorry, Nick and I are very busy and have been completely inactive on iMD for months.  Now that that’s finished, I’ll continue.

 

As I said earlier, I preordered the Oculus Rift DK2. Not only did I preorder it, but I just received it a few days ago. Now… since I’m not Nick, I wasn’t able to make a great unboxing video, however, from here on, there will be Oculus Rift content. I’ve already tried it out on a few simulators (ie. Matrix simulator, Live For Speed 2, Tron Light Cycles Simulator, etc.).

 

To clarify, since the Oculus Rift is a one person headset, Nick and I will somehow figure out how to record content of both of us playing, whether it be turn-based or whatever. But don’t worry, there WILL be videos of us falling off our chairs as we use the headset…

 

Stay Hungry…

Stay Foolish

Colonizing America Update

Posted by on Jul 21, 2013 in Colonizing America, iMD, Let's Play, Minecraft, Summer, The iMD Server

Hey everyone, Nick here! I have some great news for you. Since we are out LP episodes to upload until David gets back, yesterday I worked on the Colonizing America map all day! It was a very tedious process, but it was well worth it. I was able to assemble the highest resolution height map of America to my knowledge. The completed heightmap was huge, it was 27376 by 16244 and was 1.68 GB! I have converted the heightmap into an actual Minecraft world, thanks to WorldPainter. The Minecraft world is over 4 GB! With this newly created world I have started adding markers of where towns are in real life. You can see a picture I created to help me after the break. With such great progress I can now say that the Colonizing America map will be added to our server before the end of August. There is still quite some work to do, but its fun work! Stay tuned for more updates!

Hey everyone, Nick here! I just got back from Vermont and I have uploaded the latest episode of our Let’s Play. This episode is the last segment of video from the recording session David gave me, so unfortunately you all will have to wait for David to return until we can record more footage.

David’s Surprise

Posted by on Jun 29, 2013 in iMD, Let's Play, Minecraft

Hey everyone, Nick here! Today I wanted to announce one of the surprises that David and I planned. Remember our Let’s Play? It’s been a few months but David finally uploaded the hour of footage we recorded onto the iMD servers. As you might remember my side of the video was mysteriously deleted so we only had David’s side of the video. David started to procrastinate and not export his side of the video, and to top it all off, he got his computer taken away just before he could export it. When he finally got his computer back, which was the day before he had to leave for camp, he finally uploaded the video. So last night I edited the first episode and it is now ready for your veiwing pleasure. Also I would like to announce that during the summer I will try to upload any LP episode on Saturdays. As always you can find the latest LP on the videos page, or on YouTube. Enjoy!

How about some updates?

Posted by on Apr 30, 2013 in Exporting Problems, iMD, Let's Play, Minecraft, Social Media

Hey everyone, Nick here! So, um, yeah, David still hasn’t exported the LP. What else is new? Well actually one thing that we have been meaning to do for a while is finally up. We finally created a new YouTube banner for the new layout. You can check it out on our YouTube channel. School is about to get very busy now, unfortunately. There’s going to be two very big essays coming up and also cramming for finals. It’s so hard to believe that there is only 35 days of school left. Speaking of school, some of you might have heard how I go to 2 different schools. One of them being the Greater Hartford Academy of Math and Science. Sounds really boring right? Well today I just wanted to share one of the pages in my honors Earth science notebook.

Earth Science Notes

Here you can see, my friend Simmy drew an awesome Anime version of me! So, yeah we have a lot of fun at GHAMAS. Hopefully we can get some videos out before the crazy school season starts. So, until next time, I’m Nick from the iMD Network.
