That a lot can happen in 5 days is nothing new, but oooh maaan where to start. The Imgurcraft Zoo is coming together ever so nicely! In 5 days we've gotten: Wither Skeletons, Elder guardian, Shulker, Mooshrooms, Turtles, Dolphins, ALL fishtypes and more.. Thanks to Shazzo, Funky_Swunk, Red5551, FishSandwich and Hi_Mister! (i hope i did not miss anyone?) Not all enclosures are done, but getting the mobs at the zoo is an awesome achievement on its own! I've updated the map with the current plans and animal exibits:
*the ingame map is waaay more awesome tho
We keep an ingame message board with all mobs/exibits we are building and still have to build. When entering the zoo on the main gate you cant miss it. If you want to help, make sure to take a look at the board and find something that still needs work. We love to work together with everyone, so feel free to join in on the fun. *might make a todo-list later here.
If building or mob-gathering is not your thing, there is a donation chest at spawn. (right next to the netherportal/tp area. We are always in need of (smooth) stone, gravel, wood, dyes and basicly any blocks that can be found in natural world generation.
If you've been online in the past week or so you probably noticed something stirring in the west. Something big, something bold, somethong for everyone... The Imgurcraft Zoo.
Shazzo, Red5551 and me (MiningMarten) took it upon ourselves to finally get to it and build a zoo together. Not just any zoo, but one that contains every mob in the game. And we want to make it pretty. We also want to make it for and with everyone!
If you're looking for a cool project to work on and have some spare time (or materials) please feel free to visit West Spawn and check out the to-do list we put up!
Lets make this the best zoo ever
The first rough sketch. The main layout has been built, but is still open for improvements. The exibits and Mobs are far from being done If there is anything you'd like to know, hit any of us up ingame or on discord!
Reviving an old thread.. lets see where this goes.
I find your question very interesting. I think we should not only look at what admins can do for us, rather than what we can do ourselves. Mainly because we do see quite some people around at peek hours, but the main bulk seems to be gone out and live/build on their own.
If we want to be an active and alive online community we should act like one. - Blast Imgur with cool builds, ideas, plans we're making. This is promotion and motivation for other players. - Share your adventures/creations with others. Either on discord, this website, Imgur, wherever. It's fun and i'll promise to give you my upvote. - Help each other out. Either by building, materials, redstone puzzles or anything really.. Be the friendly neighborhood nerd everyone likes.
Than there is the playing alone together part: We should build more stuff together instead of alone. Imagen loggin in and finding something new every day. Thats what made the game exciting for me, thats what made the server interesting to come back to. Friendships where made by people building together, hanging out and bullshitting. If we could get that going again then, i think, we are more than able to get things going again.
As far as things that moderators can do i can think of: - Try community events. Small fights with unique mobs for unique rewards. Custom dungeons that teams can fight thru (early, mid and late game difficulty). Mazes with a neat reward at the end. Clue scrolls that let you visit player bases and or unique locations and forces people to use the dynmap. (rewards could be decorative blocks like player heads, random XP, special tools or even just diamonds) - Imgurcraft has always been quite the Purist community. Keep things as vanilla as possible. But maybe some datapacks that enhance gameplay in a way that does not mess with the 'vanilla feel' would be nice.
