• Buddy’s Invisible Nemesis

    Buddy spent most of the evening staring out the window. At one point he was angrily pacing back and forth watching something. I tried to move him from the window and fought me and jumped right back.

    Mike and I even went outside to check. Twice. There was nothing there.

    I’ve decided Buddy now has an invisible nemesis that is taunting him from outdoors. Oddly enough, he seems to agree with this conclusion. In high spirited meows at least.

  • WordPress & Facebook Conundrum

    Facebook is no longer allowing websites to be able to post to Profiles, so I’ve had to rework my auto-posting from Sethen.com.  At first, I was going to make a Facebook Page for my Minecraft stuff, but then I realized that ALL my posts would be going there, unless I uncheck a box when I post.  This is less than ideal.  I’m now wondering if I should just make the Facebook Page simply for Sethen.com as a whole, so everything will go there.

    I also finally figured out why the website wasn’t posting to Google+ when it was setup to do so.  It turns out that the API that does the posting does NOT work for Google+ profiles that are connected to Google Apps accounts.  That explains the issue.  But eh, I don’t really use Google+ anyways, and don’t really know anyone who does.

    So I need to decide if I want to make this new Facebook Page into “Sethen.com” or “Mentok the Minecrafter”.


  • Imperial Skyport Updates

    Alpha has a ton of airships and connecting airship routes.  They connect the various cities and locations around the world for easier travel.  My original concept was based on World of Warcraft, where the player walks up a tower and waits at a dock for the airship to arrive and transport them to the other end.  In Minecraft, I’ve set it up so that you walk to the end of a dock, and are instantly transported (via a portal) to the corresponding dock on the other end of the route.

    The Airship Network has three major hubs, all located in the Imperial Republic of Denbar.  Agrazahn is by far the largest of the Skyports, as it has the most connections to other places.  It is also the central hub of trading in Alpha, so it made sense to have a major international skyport there.  Pelagrir also has a large international skyport, as it is the home of the airship builders.  Imperial City is the third and smallest hub.  It has connections to all the other cities in the Empire, except for one (it has a railway).

    I spent the last few days updating the three major skyport hubs, adding in some details, and expanding a bit.  I also added some large signs displaying the city name!  Special thanks to Perry for making the letter banners for me!

  • Agrazahn Catacombs

    I had marked out the Agrazahn Catacombs years ago, but never really did anything with them.  It started out as a natural set of interconnecting caves and ravines beneath the city.

    I have developed it into one of my more massive places.  It has three entrances: in the center of the city, in the Tomb of the Sultans, and in the Great Pyramid.
