Some Summer Updates

Hey everyone, Nick here! Renbrook and summer school are finally over for me! So, I wanted to give you all some updates on what has been happening during the summer. The iMD headquarters has gone through a lot of construction on the inside. My dad and I have built a dividing wall, installed insulation, covered the walls with sheetrock, and I ran electricity and internet to the shed. Everyday the headquarters is coming closer to completion! The electricity that I installed comes directly from my solar panels, so we are 100% green! Scroll down to see some pictures of the inside.

In other news, significant progress has been made to our Colonizing America adventure map. We have put it on the server and we are currently populating the world with some buildings and trees. There is still quite some smoothing out to do though, so please be patient it will be amazing when we finish it.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Internet and electricity! Walls! A light switch!

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!
