The great snow storm over the mainland has finally drawn back after what seemed like forever! We hope this blessing will give us enough time to recuperate and expand our dwellings on the surface. We must bring our own light to the world if we hope to quell the potential return of darkness!
A new road has been constructed, going all the way from the coastal road to Ironhammer and the portal chamber.
Constructed by the Eulorians, The Great Coastal Road connects the 2 most prevalent settlements on TAW at this time – Aduro & Torchlight.
(with conquest textures)
(now with Isabella texture pack. See, what’d I tell ya about those washed out colors? :P)
With the road completed, the respawn has been set to a new Gazebo just outside the city of Aduro. We hope this more “in-world” spawn will entice people to RP more because of the added immersion, and to bring more traffic to an already established city! So, how about a few drinks at the local tavern to celebrate?
(( annnd, here’s the new spawn with Isabella 🙂 I like it a lot! ))
Yep, the new map render is now up at drakortha.info!
Also, by request, if you click the pip-boy icon at the top right of the page you can download some of the older maps.
We’re uncertain if it is influenced by Terth, but a freezing cold storm has just swept over the old mainland with no end in sight. Let’s just hope & pray that the sun returns soon!
A texture pack I’ve used personally many times – Isabella is a unique 16×16 texture pack, with a 1.6.4 release.
Having been through Dokucraft, Ovo’s, John Smith & Conquest, whats so great about this pack? Well, first of all it’s 16×16 so it’s better for those of you who might have slower machines. Also, it’s simple yet aesthetically pleasing graphics are easy on the eyes.
For this age, I particularly like the grey skies and the washed out colors. I also set my view distance to medium to bring the fog in closer, and turned off clouds. So I recommend this pack as an alternative to the usual Conquest/John Smith we use.
Here’s the link to the texture pack, along with a few more screenshots of my own.
(texture pack does not include falling cow)
Ruins look pretty good too!
Celebrations are in order! The Matmos sound generation mod has just been updated to 1.6.4. If you’ve never played Minecraft with it before, you must hear it for yourself. You really are missing out!
Liteloader is required to run it, and instructions on it’s installation are included on the following page, as well as download links.
