    BEHOLD! The TPU Minecraft Server Production!!!

    It is my privilege to FINALLY present and reveal this Minecraft production I have been working on and off on for the past few months. I promised back in April that I would be working on a production for our TPU Minecraft server. I was originally planning for a May release but then college, work, and of course procrastination took a hold of me. I greatly apologize for the delay and I hope my fellow TPU buds will find it in their hearts to forgive my terrible procrastination. ;) xD

    MUSIC
    I decided to go more for an epic music soundtrack with this production. I have gone through tons of video game soundtracks but it just seems odd putting some kind of Legend of Zelda type music in a Minecraft film. So with all this being said, I went with 'epic trailer' music for this production. You can see all tracks used in this film by visiting the url of the production in the description tab.

    Attention Builders
    This was a very tedious and hard to organize project so I apologize if your name was not mentioned at the end of the production. I did my best to make sure that everyone was accounted for at the end but I realized that not everyone's name is on the TPU wall on the server. Again, I apologize if your name was not accounted for at the end of the production. Thank you for understanding. :)

    New TechPowerUp! Animation
    So for all the mods who were obsessed with knowing what I was working on for W1zzard, this animation really was the only part. haha. I messaged W1zzard about TechPowerUp having it's own animation for videos. I told him that the animation would premier in this production and he said go for it. So technically the only thing I was 'working on' for W1zzard was this TPU animation, however, that animation was done by my animator, SWP 'Sandu Andrei' ;)

    And P.S. W1zzard, your mods were very persistent at trying to figure out what it was being worked on xD

    Now relax, set the video to HD + Fullscreen and enjoy the production. :toast:


    Just a reminder that Xtreme Gaming Presents (our gaming channel) hosts a ventrilo server. Everyone from TPU and anyone who is apart of our Minecraft server is more than welcome to come and chat in our ventrilo.

    Yeah, there was so much to cover in the server that eventually everything just became too disorganized to know if I have everything or not. I was also trying to stay around the 15-16 min mark and then forgot I had to do the credit roll. lol

    I just want people to start going back on. xD

    I've got too many other games to play/beat and not enough inspiration to make anything else in Minecraft. :(

    The 1.7 patch changed the rendering so much (plays like the web browser version of the game) that it almost makes me motion sick to turn, too.

    I'll probably be back for a little while when they get questing patched in but I suspect it won't hold my attention for long.

    A simply stunning production. I can't express how good that video makes me feel. You kind of forget how awesome and epic everything on the server is until you see it in a format like that. Especially when you realize that for the most part everything was done with naturally collected resources and no flight mods or anything like that(in fact the server has anti-flight in place).

    Thank you so much, that is truly amazing.

    As for the future of the server, I'm working on that. There should be an announcement in the next week or so about a cool idea I've got for the server...;)
    BondExtreme says thanks.

    Thank you Tekie for the compliments. It was a bit of work.. and some money well spent...

    I just hope a lot of you guys noticed the new TPU logo animation at the beginning. That is what most of the money went towards. ;)

    The update yesterday got killed on accident mid-update, so it didn't happen. I re-ran it today, so it should be updated by now.

    Where did you build?

    Log onto the server and make sure they are still there.

    They might have been a casualty of the map being corrupted by a storm and me restoring a backup. The past few weeks we've had some seriously bad electrical storms that have zapped a lot, including killing power to the server a lot which Minecraft hates. They've also managed to kill a gigabit switch and 3 TVs in my house.:( Sorry if this is the case.

    Also, tectonicus has been acting up, the map is really slow to use now for some reason. So I think I'm going to scrap the rendering and start a fresh rendering tomorrow and see if that helps anything.

    It was on an APC 1500, but the battery took a shit a few months ago and I've been to lazy and too poor to replace it.:eek:

    Ok good, then you didn't loose a bunch of work, and it isn't my fault. :rockout:

    I check into the map issue tomorrow when I'm at the office(the server is at my office). Like I said, I think I'm going to delete the current render and have it start from scratch. It takes about 4 hours to render when I do this, but I think it will fix a lot of issues.

    There's your problem. APC are a rip off. I have CyberPower UPS's going on 5 years old and only one failed due to a "circuit board failure." It cut the power off clean though when it went so it didn't damage anything connected.

    Not when you get it for free.:D Otherwise I would have bought a CyberPower(and I probably still will since it will likely be cheaper than a battery, and I agree APC is a rip off).
