Those are all good ideas, Dal. If we have anybody who has had experience in making lore, it would be nice to have some of Vetronia's lore created. I've noticed that many large servers have a LOT of lore, so I'm assuming it can help bring in some traffic.

Definitely!  It would add more than just "Hey!  This is my nice city!"  Off the top of my head I think it'll be a fun project for the lore of -can't think of the town's old name-, which is now what I believe is Oasis.

Also in addition to what I listed I had another idea on mind which I didn't type out simply because it left it.  A photo gallery (drrrr)

This is my signature and I hope you enjoy it. - Dalferes

In terms of Visitor's Brochure, we could take advantage of the upcoming book and quill update.

I think we have a flickr and lots of pictures on our facebook actually. It would be a nice addition to the site though.

Anyway, I'm thinking we could have lore for the server in general, not just cities.

In regards to the map created a few months back, I think we need to rework the naming of some of the continents/oceans - some of them are really good, but some don't roll off the tongue quite as easily.  This is just an opinion.

I agree. If you have any ideas that would be great.

Smart ideas, light.

@Pherian: I'll make up a little map with what needs some naming and editing for the new world and post it here so we can get some ideas. Also, is there any new styles we could try with the map? Don't get me wrong, the map is amazing, but you may have found some new things to do in the time you've been gone.

Yeah I'd have started something basic already but I can't get the world map :)

I was thinking of doing a hand-drawn map. Won't be perfectly to scale, but it'll be classier and prettier hopefully. I'll see what I can do as soon as I can access the dynmap.

Naming and whatnot is all up to you guys!

I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to stop going to those places.

Another message to Pherian (sorry >.<): If you go to this thread: http://www.planetminecraft.com.....l#p1003503 you can see that I have made sections for each part (i.e. Plugins, Server Info, etc.). If you can instead make the names of those sections into little pictures that are 500px width and 100px height (as a maximum, can be smaller), then that would be awesome. Here is what I could come up with, but I think you can do better:

EDIT: Thanks for all the help that we are already having you dive into. Laugh

I'll get you that as soon as I can. Evenings are tough. Probably expect something sometime tomorrow when I'm not being besieged by children. :) Any particular style you want?

Sounds good. The only request I have is that it fits with VeteranCraft. Here is our logo to give you an idea:

So... pretty much anything then :) I'll keep with the colors. Let me see what I can do and get it back to you.

Awesome, thanks a bunch. Laugh It's great to have you back, Pherian. I'm not sure how extensively you'd like to help us, but I'm assuming that you want some limits. Just let us know them so we know how much work is too much for you.

How's that look? Kept the general colors, some texture and left them on a white background. Let me know if something needs tweaking. :)

was this made in PS, or do you have it in vectors?  I'd like to animate it, if I may.  But would need original work, as high quality as possible.  I usually work in 1440dpi, but all up to you man, cheers :)

There are 3 steps one must take to profit in today's economy: 1.) Learn from lessons taught by others 2.) Don't give away everything you know.

I'm not so sure, TSWG. I believe meat had it made for him so he knows everything about it.. but he is gone right now.

@Pherian: That looks good, thanks. Laugh

Another request, Pherian (sorry again Confused): Could we get a banner made? Probably around the same size as those pictures of the words? If you could add the logo into it somehow that would be great, but do what you need.

One thing regarding Visitor Brochures: The embassies could be used for detailed advertorial information on many places, so perhaps include a closeup of the Embassy district with a list that says which is which?

 

As for the map, perhaps ask the techies to fully render Vetronia before a full map is made?

If the servers ever down and you need the dynamap 9 times out of 10 the test server dynamap is up so you can always use that to get the shot i have it if its ever needed.
