  1. Official RP thread Creation Ideas

    I don't think anyone has been uncivil, but in case you got the wrong impression I would like to assure everyone (especially @Lord Ryno) that I bear no ill will.

    Lol it's your own fault for escalating to war without checking with me. It was doomed from the start considering we don't even agree on what counts as a functional weapon. Now all of you seem to think that this example between Ryno and me is a good reason to add RP rules. I just see a lot of potential bickering about those rules because of the underlying problem that we just don't agree. (Which is fine, it happens.) But yeah, this has kinda taken over the thread. I'm just one voice sharing my opinion. I can't stop others who want to play with additional rules. Don't let me stop you guys from discussing your own opinion on this.
  3. Official RP thread Creation Ideas

    Honestly, I wasn't planning to destroy anything for the sake of RP and certainly not my airfield. (You're welcome to burn down the Trojan horse I built you. That was a gift for you.) I was just having some fun in a cold war arms race and mud slinging competition, which is a great level of RP for this sever because you don't need others to "play along" with your narrative. Then you escalated things to a point where the RP no longer works without both parties following the same script. Pay me as an actor and then we can do it your way. That's why I kept trying to convince you in RP to call off your war. Because I could see it wasn't going to work. But you didn't and now the RP is pretty much dead. @Xeredek Those basic ground rules are covered by normal server rules, no? Also it seems @Lord Ryno is the exact opposite from you as he wants rules so he can enforce his magic super weapons rather than prevent them. (Looking at his comment about blowing up my airfield) That is why the whole rule thing seems like a bad idea. Rules are devisive and the more rules you add the more people you exclude. And whether you're preventing or enforcing super weapons, it's all just using arbitrary rules to get control over what other people do. RP anarchy ftw.

    Well I thought that's the point of RP, that no single party can control what the others do. You gotta work with what you're given and react to changing circumstances. I mean for example, somebody declared war on me for a little plane that's not even that close to their base. Then they set up AA guns in the area where my plane already was and now they're surprised that they haven't "shot down" my plane yet. I could say "well they could've never safely set up the AA there because my plane was flying around and would've blown them to kingdom come", but I don't say that because you just can't demand to be in charge of what other people build or remove. So instead I came up with an explenation from just my side: Amazing pilot. Or another example of conflicting narratives is that I seem to be the only one who puts effort into making guns that actually work. How am I supposed to win a war against someone who just plonks down a few blocks and slabs and says it's an effective AA gun? There's absolutely no fun in that for me, so you can yell "pew pew" all you want, I won't count it as getting shot. So yeah my opinion on this is just live and let live. We can't demand others have to act along our narrative and we shouldn't demand it.

    Do we really need additional RP rules besides the normal server rules? What sort of rules were you thinking about?
  6. WAR / Call to arms

    Dear @Lord Ryno, As a peace offering, I've built this wonderful, big, wooden horse for you. I've positioned it in front of your trenches. I had to get your men to agree to a temporary ceasefire to set it up. (I bribed them with chocolate and filthy magazines.) It's yours to take inside your city walls. It will be beautiful inside your city walls. Everybody else will be like "wow, I wish I had that inside my city walls!". So better get it inside your city walls before somebody else snatches it up and puts it inside their city walls, because this should go inside your city walls! Yours sincerely, jrRedek PS. Don't worry if you hear any noises coming from inside the horse. It's just the wood drying out. I'm sure it will dry faster inside your city walls.
  7. WAR / Call to arms

    That's Maverick for you. One hell of a pumpkin-headed pilot. I wouldn't send a rookie on the Rynoria route. No amount of AA can stop Maverick and he will keep flying that route until I ask him to stop. Anyway I'm preparing a gift for Rynoria in the name of peace. It will be a big wooden horse for you to display inside your city walls.
  8. WAR / Call to arms

    Have I not been a great leader? Did I ever impose rules on you? Restrictions? Taxes? All I've ever done is to keep the East safe from threats from the outside, on behalf of all the people in the East, including you. I can't do my job when I don't have access to a large part of the Eastern sky. I've respectfully chosen a flight path that doesn't go over your city, but your request for a Rynorian airspace up to 500 or even a 1000 blocks from your city wall is just unacceptable. And now you are openly inviting non-Eastern armies into our lands. I have to wonder if your moral compass even points East anymore. Retract your call for foreign invaders. Do it for the East. Glory be damned.
  9. WAR / Call to arms

    The lies. "No choice", "last thing I wanted". It's just a little plane flying past. You could've just left it. The truth is you're jumping on the first excuse to start a war. You want this. The red mist has descended and in your blind rage you've already lashed out at the first innocent victim. Poor Tirius. You're on a quest for fire and destruction and you love it. Other nations of Minionland, you've seen the true face of warlord Ryno today. Don't get involved in his little rebellion. Nothing good will come of it.
  10. Ultimatum to jrRedek

    "Rynorian airspace"?
  11. Just looking at the map now. At it's biggest the statue is 11 wide and 9 deep, though the base is only 6x6. Looking at your screenshot I think the plots are 9 wide and plenty deep. I could fit it in either sideways (so it faces the players coming at it), or if I face it to the centre of the board the shoulders would overhang the borders of the plot (but not actually go into the next plot). I could try to build a miniature version with fence posts for spear and single-block wide legs, but I don't think it would look too similar because I would have to lose the armor and helmet probably. So to sum up the three options I see are: Facing centre of the board with slight overhang over the border (But not into the next plot) Facing sideways in the direction the players are coming from A shitty miniature version that probably won't really look like the original at all (Can you tell I'm trying to influence you not to pick this one? ) And prison started out great. I smuggled in a llama for warmth and company and it ended up saving my dignity because Gopher was too distracted to laugh at me. But then everybody left and I was just stuck there in jail all alone with nothing but my own thoughts and llama spit noises...
  12. That's so cool. I have never seen any of my work with shaders and high res textures before. Great picture! If you want me to build a guardian statue somewhere on the board, just let me know.
  13. Imperial Defense Project

    I am touched that you have built a big statue of a gun to honour your glorious leader in the East. I think it's a wonderful use of symbolism that strongly displays my millitary prowess. Don't worry though. As your glorious leader I take responsibility for your defense. I have functional guns for when your so-called "friends" from the other districts stab you in the back and try to invade my lands through your innocent naivety. Glory to the East. Glory to me.
  14. I am a bit surprised that you were under the impression that Minionland would be a medieval themed server. Gopher never built in medieval style and there's a McDonald's next to spawn. But either way it seems like a weird thing to get hung up about. Have you ever really looked at the real world? The diversity in houses ranges from hyper-modern penthouse apartments in the city to stick and mud huts in Africa and anything in between. While some people are taking their self-driving Tesla cars to work, many are just trying to push their donkey and cart up the hill. Oh and this is all ~50 years after people already walked on the moon, yet none of us have ever done anything like it. The idea that every build has to be from the same theme or same level of technological advancement for it to be an immersive world just seems silly.
  15. It seems like a good idea. Under the command/plugin functions tree you could add a section on animal sacrifices and one on the QuickTree plugin.
