rising from the ashes of boredom and my (potentially) broken arm.. 

dusting off the ruined and forgotten jamesopolis, remaking it with stolen ideas. Well not really. It’s the same city, the same footprint, just some new  blocks. These buildings were burned out frames in the jamesocalypse map, which.. is the closest thing I have to a v5 save.

Rude women; Piggish men

So one of my clients has this woman that works for them. Lets say her name is Erma.. Erma Gherd.

Anyway, Erma has a cubicle, and sometimes I wind up having to use an empty cubicle near Erma where I have to hear her Ermagherd bergers voice all the fucking time.

Here’s what I know about Erma:

* She’s average looking

* She’s married

*She’s very flirty with most of the men in the office.

*She likes to drink.. all the time. As does her husband, she seems to think life is not fun without being pass out drunk.

Now as you can imagine all of this combined with her ermagherd voice makes me want to vomit to even hear her speak. Suffice to say.. I DONT LIKE HER.

The other day when I was at the office everyone but me and her were at lunch and I needed to leave a note on an otherwise empty desk. So.. I walked over to her cube and said “excuse me, can I borrow a pen?”

She looked at me as if I had just asked her to bang in the bathroom, sighed and gave me a “tch..” and handed me a pen. I thanked her, and got no answer. I used the pen, then thanked her again as I returned it. I had to hand it to her and thank her, she stated at me for nearly 3 seconds before she took it from me.

Look.. not every guy wants to fuck you alright? There’s no reason to judge people rudely. Vaginas aren’t sacred cows.. not all men worship your gaper. There’s no reason to be rude to another human being because they’re not “your type.”

Now I know what you’re gonna say.. “wow this guy’s being exactly like her and saying she’s a bitch when he doesn’t know her.” No, I do know a lot about her from her conversations with the men in the office who seem to worship at the Vag-alter. I don’t like the type of person that she is, and I wouldn’t like her if she were a man either. That being said, I would never be rude to her face, or make judgmental expressions at her if she asked me for a pen or something.

This is something I’ve never understood and I think Erma represents a larger portion of the populace. (as do the men who worship her.) So many times these women parade around acting like the fact that they have a different set of genitals than men, that it gives them the right to judge every man they encounter as a sexual object and criticize them for mundane things. Why? What purpose is there to be harsh to every person that speaks to you? Perhaps because I live outside of the religon of vaginology that most men seem to follow, that I don’t see it. Maybe she’s hit on CONSTANTLY and thins me asking for a pen is asking if she want the D.. either way.. that makes her a dumbass.

Now.. I also touched on the men who hit on her. These men are also married, most of them. They’re the kind of guy that call each other “tiger” or ask “DID YOU SEE THE GAME LAST NIGHT BRO?” or “hey its 5:00 somewhere! Lets get some beer!” They’re bros.. the worst kind of bro. Guys that follow vaginology. These guys are despicable too. How can you be so obsessed with the genitals of another person without knowing them? Why is the genitals that a person holds so much more important than WHO THEY ARE?

Needless to say.. I dislike going to this client. Not because they’re difficult or anything, but simply for the fact that their attitudes seem to be polar opposites of mine. I’ll never understand these types of people. Men who are the “RUN WITH THE BIG DOGS OR GET OUT OF THE WAY” types, and women who are ermagherd bimbos..

At least I don’t have to go there every day, and I don’t always have to sit with Erma. I still have to hear the men in their conversations in the bathroom, kitchen, hallway, cubicles, going on and on about sports bullshit that no one REALLY cares about, bragging about their new cars, or talking about where the best bar is and how cool it is to be shitfaced. If you ever wondered what kind of jobs Frat boys and Sorority chicks get after college.. its sales jobs.

2bloc lives! (oh god what a horrible pun..)

Watery wormhole.

dis some good photo hea.

things have been pretty quiet around here lately. I think we’re all on sort of a haitus. I know I for one am in the process of moving, and I’ve been stressed to hell lately. (we literally had a 20 hour project dropped on us with only 3 hours allocated last week.) so.. its been hectitc as hell. We’re still around tho!

So, during our open house the other day I was on the server and I got a lot of people saying “I don’t know who’s on the official broville team.”
People that DO know I’m on the team often ask me what I made or what my favorite area is. so..

I’ll just answer some quesstions no one is really asking at the moment. Cos.. well I want to.
1. Yes I am on the “official broville team.” No, my skin isn’t the computer monitor we’re using. (not yet anyway.) 
1a. I wearing the computer on my head so that I won’t lose it. Think of it as an extra inventory slot. Since I made the ‘BanHammer” pickaxe, if mob drops are on, my inventory fills up VERY quickly with pork, feathers, beef etc.
2. I’ve made several areas but mostly away from the city. I’ve done spotty interiors here n there. I really can’t name those. Just wheverever I may fall from the sky and start placing desks and things.
3. Some of my favorite builds that I’ve been most directly involved in? Well the asylum, the university, the coal mine (mautner), the nuke silo, and the uni park/athens village, uni walk subidivions and areas surrounding them. I also did the clubhouse for the country club, the trailer park, brotech, and what I’ve come to call “restaurant row.” outside the museum. You’ll know it when you see it.

So there ya go.

The lore behind this: Lord Berches, frustrated by commute times from Masonville, and being well versed in the trade routes throughout the continent, has seen opportunity in Corrach technology, and has comissioned a group of engineers on leave in Ffierio to construct a “flying ship.” This is their 2nd attempt. The first burned and sank. The 2nd? Well it SHOULD fly.. possibly.. maybe? Perhaps if Lord Berches would fund them a little better that is..

Do you remember when mobs had IDs above their heads? You could use it to cheat and find cave systems underneath you. 

Also, I’ve been using texture packs for a LONG time apparently. This file is dated 2011.

These are the same building.

2 years apart and about 50 chunks apart.

Johannes Gutenberg public school. This building is so old in Broville it should almost be considered historic.

It was originally built where the hospital now stands.

These pictures were taken in Broville in 2012! Yes, almost 2 years ago now. The lost statue of PAC rests on what I BELIEVE would soon become the arts district. I actually cannot even find this area. It’s changed so much.

So, according to the maker of the texture pack Conquest, after the 1.8 update, all his metadata blocks will revert to air. That’s gonna be a problem for my adventure map.

so I’m faced with a dilemma. Rip out everything I’ve done and go back to vanilla only interiors (which makes this more difficult..) force the map to remain at 1.7, which.. there’s no reason why it couldn’t I suppose.. or .. ???

There’s nothing keeping the map from being completed at 1.7. We have the texture pack, we have the required mod (noppe’s npc mod) but this creates yet another hurdle for this map to work, which reduces it’s playing population even further.

I’m just afraid that since this map isn’t anything spectacular, that it will never get off the ground with all these exceptions. I’ve actually been avoiding the map for probably a month now since I read about the 1.8 meta data problem. It will also break all my command blocks, because IDs no longer work. It has to be something like minecraft:block_name.

I’m not really sure what to do here folks. This map is 1 part of a 3 continent adventure “world” that was cut down for the sake of time. I’ve already got 2 years into this. It’s not really amazing or anything, I don’t have a team of builders (just me and dresden really..) I don’t host a monster server, 95% of the work on the bulk of this map I’ve done myself over the last few years.

What do you think? Do I have any options? Should I hang it up?  How can we turn this into a success?
