Hi there,

My name is Guigui as well as my avatar in the 8bitMMO game.
I'm quite nostalgic of 8bits and have been interested by this game.

At the begionning I explored a lot the world of 8bitMMO, going to each limit E/W/S/N. Then I wanted to participate more to create this world. So I bought some plats to create my city and protect my constructions.

I did not want to close my city with walls, I wanted it to be wide open to this world. That why when having created my city "Guiguiville" I have build some "higways" to connect it to the world, going East, North, and West (there were nothing worthing direct to South). I connected some existing roads, enlarged some, and join some cities too. The network looks satisfying to me and I have been glad to see that PsychoticSmiley did continue my road to the Far West ;) with some cities along.

Inside Guiguiville I started to build a "mountain" which is almost 250 pixels hich, a maze, and some other tries. I'm now working on my "stairway to heaven" which may be 6000 pixels high, a first floor to my town on 1000 pixel high... Yes I want to go high and higher, not keeping my constructions to close flat 2D :roll: and get more surface!

I'd like to congrat the creator would build the great dragon in the game. As next steps I'd like to create some voxel-art too. Yesterday I build a first interesting sculpt : a big giant hand inspired from an idea seen in qblock. I may create some more and would like to create some originals from my own 8-)

See you everybody,

Guigui.

Thanks for your comments!

The "real" hand has been updated by getting rid of this line in the palm.
:idea: For your information it is made out of 779 blocks.

Some others projects will follow... :D

This time I've tried a seal with some costing blocks, but the result isn't as good as expected :?

Posted Image

:confused: The result isn't easy to understand : "road" is the right color here but it miss some shadows, and some separation lines do not appear...
Anyway it has been some work so I'll keep it. Maybe I'll have some ideas to make it evolve in a better way.

FYI, if you press Shift + F11, you can sometimes get it to pause for a little bit while it forces shadows to render. Doesn't always work for some reason though

Thanks for the tip!

I have made an attempt of a DNA style helix, but it wasn't so good :?

Anyway I was working on a giant skull :twisted:
It was promising until I get this message "Sorry, you cannot place a block here as this region is full"

Can someone tell me more about this message? Thanks!

Ah, that means the region you are in has more than 1,000 objects in it. A region is 16x16 blocks big

Thanks for this helpfull information about "region"!
It may happens because I'm building on different floors...
I've tried to destroy some adjacent blocks but they may not have been close enough to give me space... :idea: now I'll give another try with other blocks based on the same vertical fence.
