HOMETOWN! Six weeks!

Before I write anything else, please just stop what you're doing and watch maikerumine's latest video. (Don't forget to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to maikerumine's channel if you haven't already done so!) We haven't taken an official poll, but we suspect Aidenminer is the cutest kiddo in the history of ever. Seriously, how cute is HE? Aiden, if your Dad shows you this forum post, I want you to know that dungeon masters make us freak out and scream too. *high fives*

HOMETOWN Server w/Aidenminer Pt. 1

This week has been another busy one for HOMETOWN staff and residents! ExeterDad hasn't been spotted very much because when he isn't working his real life job, he's been working on a custom inventory mod with some pretty cool bells and whistles. Just when I think he has it dialed in, he decides to add another bell or whistle and a whole new round of either cursing or celebration starts. Someday, our shiny new inventory mod will appear and our kids will see something other than the back of their father's head while his nose is in his laptop. (RIP good parenting)

    What's New?

    *PB&J Pups are here! Reward of 500 gold ingots to the first player to spot one on the server! Just FYI, we will have both Nyan and the pups, otherwise we will have a billion unknown nodes on the server (and nobody likes that). Also, the pups and their candy sprinkle tails are edible, but I STRONGLY advise against it. If you eat the tail, you just hear some barking, if you eat that peanut butter and jelly puppy head, you will hear a CRUNCH and a realistic HOWL - and those sounds will continue for several minutes afterwards, traumatizing children and sparking awkward conversations about how guinea pigs are NOT pets in Peru. 'Nuff said.

    *The Easter Bunny has arrived and set up residence until Easter! He narrowly missed crushing poor little Gerald with his giant alien sugar egg house, thankfully Gerald managed to scoot his chubby little bunny butt forward and avoid certain death. From now until Easter we will randomly announce times when you can have your picture taken with the Easter Bunny and have your photo included in a weekly post. If you want to check out the Easter Bunny and try to get him to give out hints about the Easter egg hunt, you can climb into his egg and explore his humble home. If you want to whack him with your noob pick, well.... that's a risk you take, it's your Easter basket at stake, not mine. ;)

    *You may not believe this, but the furniture store is OPEN for business! No, really... I'm not kidding. Check it out. :)

    *Our residents don't know it yet, but a playable soccer field is built and ready to install on the server! Installation will happen either today or tomorrow, or whenever ExeterDad takes a break from his mad scientist stuff with the inventory mod.

Screenshots!

PB&J Pup found on the test/development HOMETOWN clone server. Just in case you haven't seen one yet, this is what you will find. They behave very much like Nyan, they are rare but you can find them -32 and under. Happy hunting!

The furniture store is located in the big yellow building, opposite Micah's Cafe, Sky_Fall_II's shop, and the pet store.

New soccer field! It will be located behind some of the downtown buildings, next to Fixerol's map building. There will be a ball on the field, available at all times. The soccer balls will not be found in inventory and are not craftable, but since they will not be diggable and the field is surrounded by fencing, our hope is we will not be replacing the soccer ball every 5 minutes. Walk up to the ball to dribble, shift to kick. TinedStarling looks forward to showing off her mad soccer skillz. :D

Hi, I was wanting to perhaps make some cool pets (I like blender modelling), so what mob mod does HOMETOWN use?
If you say that
Your phone or window isn't wide enough to display the code box. If it's a phone, try rotating it to landscape mode.
Code: Select all
function.name_of_thing_to_do
is impossible, then you didn't try hard enough. :P

Mods I work on: MicroExpansion

You have my respect, Blender is no small potatoes! :D

We have TenPlus1's mobs_redo on the server.

I'll just sneak these in right here...doot dee doo


Sorry ExeterDad, your dinner is going to be late, the kids and I have been glued to the big screen watching maikerumine's videos all afternoon. BOOM.

(TinedStarling may or may not have done a little squeal when maikerumine gave a shout out to the family. Maikerumine may have an issue on his hands because she thinks this whole video thing is prettttttty okie-dokie.)

She's 10. She is allowed a certain amount of fangirl stuff. If she is still doing it when she's 30, we'll restrict her YouTube access and find her a hobby. :D

ExeterDad installed his new WIP customized inventory mod on the server last night! This new inventory mod is his solution for the collective desire to have a more sophisticated inventory mod, without resorting to using unified inventory (which is lovely, but tends to be laggy). Aside from the new buttons to set home and go home (eliminating the need for chat commands) the two most helpful features are a searchable inventory and skin preview.

With this many pages of items, a search feature was imperative.

Image

This new skin preview feature eliminates the need to alter camera view while a player "tries on" skins in order to see the different skins available. Now players can easily see the entire skin selection. Players with a custom skin now have the option to "take off" their custom skin and choose another, and put their custom skin back on as they please. This is exciting for those of us who have had to wear the same outfit for the past 6 weeks, or risk losing it until it was assigned to us again!

Image

This is a work in progress, and ExeterDad will be tweaking and doing some more customization, but I think it's already a wonderful and much needed feature for HOMETOWN. Thank you, ExeterDad!
