Blacraft New Year 2015
« on: 2014 08 22, 15:04:35 »
The 2015 New Year event will take place on the big roof in Desertopia, hosted by Mudkipz with the help of everyone who participates.
Fireworks will be launched at 00:00 UTC, the midnight between December 30 and 31, but to see it you need to come online earlier so you can get there in time. Over the past year our ability to produce gunpowder, paper, gold, feathers and many dyes has increased a lot, so this year we can make the fireworks show much greater than the past years.

Transport:
Approximate coordinates are (x,z) = (-50 , -1150). Rail line 1 has a stop in Desertopia as well and there's also a nether portal linking to the region. Use Dynmap for help.

Material planning:
Here is a plan for what everyone will bring to the event: http://tinyurl.com/blacraftNY2015



Let's start organizing the new year event for 2015. Here's the thread from 2014:
http://blacraft.createaforum.com/blacraft-general/blacraft-new-year-2014/

First, we need a list of candidate locations for hosting the event. Post here 1 or 2 places where you'd like the event to be hosted. (And only submit your own places or unclaimed places.)

I'll enter:

Kaktolake, Kaktoland
Spawntown, Kaktoland

Last year's places were:

Spawntown, Kaktoland
Capital, Aahrus
Vrus, Aahrus
Oasis City, Kaeshar
Revolt City, Revolute De Snow
Desertopia, Desertopia
The Nether

Later we will start a poll on the location, and like last year you can't vote for locations you manage. This year you can't vote for locations you submitted, manager doesn't matter.

The poll is up! Make sure to vote before November 16.

Also, I recommend posting below some of the features that makes your suggestions worth our votes for New Year 2015.
Personally I'm very interested in the surroundings and infrastructure. If you finish nice (urban) buildings it'll increase your changes to get my vote, or if you haven't gotten it done, post (realistic!) plans of what you'll get done in preparation of the event.

I can start with Kaktolake, Kaktoland:
Most of this district has been built up during 2014, including many of the region's largest structures - Kaktoland Iron Foundry just before last New Year, one of the tallest buildings on Blacraft, Kaktolake Monster Factory, the glass maze, a gold foundry and recently Stargate. It is an industrial area with a spruce wood factory and a stacked netherwart farm/factory. Other projects under construction are a parkour track and a fort at the border to Ampluterra, when they will be completed is currently unknown.
A large open space is found near the portal and public storage, where a horse road to Blue Bay intersects the one leading north from Spawntown. North of it, a hill with a small river and waterfall park provides a scenic view of the district.

Pics or it didn't happen:

I'll change the poll to say you can't vote for your own submissions rather than areas you manage so that it shouldn't be biased based on how many owns a region.

I thought I had done that in the poll as that's what I intended but apparently I hadn't.

Seeing that some people are seriously voting for The End, I'm just saying that I think you should consider what there is to do during the party. The other years we've been using buildings, done parkour, etc., and while The End is an interesting place nothing has really been built there other than the xp farm and a tunnel from spawn to exit. I don't think it would make for an interesting party in the time that surrounds the fireworks so I hope you'll consider your vote.
The same goes for the nether... I know you mentioned building a glass dome but still, there's nothing. If someone punches pigmen, we'll all have trouble. If ghasts spawn inside the glass dome, we'll get in trouble. It'll be hard to transport our fireworks to the nether and especially The End as well.
I also think it'd be nice to show off and explore what someone (or a group) has built during the event, with fireworks in the background, instead of just picking a location that's pretty much just generated from scratch.

I think the other options are all magnitudes better candidates than the Nether/End for these reasons.

add your username, then give your relative preferences for each date. everything is normalized so your scale doesn't.

We have already voted for when New Year event should take place:
http://blacraft.wikia.com/wiki/Blacraft/Kaktoland/Spawntown/Blacraft_Voting_Center/201311021910

Unless we set up a poll to make an exception this new year, it will be the UTC midnight between December 30 and 31.

Also I've counted the votes, and as people probably knew by now, I can confirm Desertopia is the location with 4 votes.

If another time turns out to be more convenient for everyone, would it be a good idea to then make a poll to set the date to then?

We can see if the  time is ok with most people, and if there are problems, consider an alterenative. Until then assume the event will be the time we planned.

As for resources, I still have a whole bunch of stuff left over from last year that can be transferred over to Desertopia.
