    what is this mod??

    lol i didnt see the post above me :)


    Hah! It is an old mod that Andallas and I developed a long time ago for beta Minecraft. Watch the following video, it will show quite well what our mod is. (or will be since we are looking to remake it.)

    I got permission to post this quote from an email I got from one of our fans. I wanted to make a few points on what he says.

    Heya there.
    Although I do not find myself playing Minecraft much anymore (with the time that I can find to play at all), I would be in support of BMS revival. I enjoyed all the additional things that you couldn't find in Minecraft and the new stuff to be explored. However, after a point it did become quite easy and challenges were thoughtlessly surmountable. If you do restart the project, I reckon you should make monsters and tasks fitting of great BMS weaponry!

    Glosanbi.


    So he is totally right, and, we have already been discussing this since the start of this new campaign. Minecraft survival is too easy, and, needs some revisions. We plan to do things like improve the AI of mobs, and most likely add new mobs which introduce interesting dynamics.

    Thank you for your support Glosanbi! Hopefully you join us in game when this is all done!

    About Half Way There!

    So Blackmodule Studio has been following this gem: http://7daystodie.com/

    We have backed the game, and, think the dynamic looks wonderful! Now, you might be asking why this is at all relevant to this thread right? Well, from what we have seen of this game, we no doubt will be taking a few notes of what they do right in regards to balancing survival and creative gameplay.

    I personally feel that Minecraft has no real threat once you get some sort of structure up and running, and, I think some key changes to the mob AI in MC will make the game way more interesting. I don't want to just give away what those AI changes are as they will more be a surprise in the next BMS :P

    On that note. I want to again remind everyone that this mod becoming reality entirely depends on there being enough support for it. If you haven't linked anybody this thread, then likely we haven't seen enough support yet XD. Please do let us know how many people you have wanting to see this mod happen. We are about ~20 supporters so far, and, I would like to see at least double that before calling a remake of BMS viable.

    Thanks all for the continued interest in this mod! We are really looking forward to remaking it!

    Hey Fallen. Glad to hear back from you! I actually don't have your TS info anymore. I was looking for it yesterday so I could come chat with you guys. Mind shooting me an email with it?

    Quote from mrnotalky

    Just saw this in my email. Was really exited to see this come back. I never got to fully experience the mod as I was just starting out hosting a private server. Looking forward to seeing it all brand new!


    Hey! Thanks so much for the support! Please do share/link this thread around and get people to show their support. I can't stress enough how crucial that will be to this project getting up and running :)

    Thanks again guys, and, I look forward to jumping in the TS!

    Not only yes to heck yes to continue updates!!!


    Hey Guys! Fantastic to see you are interested in seeing BMS come back, we share your enthusiasm! With you guys, that makes 10 people we know would love to see this mode come back! That's about 1/5 of what I want to see, but, it's a FANTASTIC start given this is only the first day after us announcing a possible revival!

    If you would like to see this mod come back, please please please share this thread with Minecraft enthusiasts everywhere. If everybody shares with at least 2 people, then I know we will see this mod back on its feet!

    Oh. My. God.

    YES.

    I followed you guys on your sites awaiting a return for this truly awesome mod. Subscribed to your forums and everything (this is DXUltimate, by the way).

    I can guarantee you at least 4 votes for this. 100,000% yes.

    Quote from torontoguy2k5

    Oh yeah? Well I vote 200,000% yes! Aha!
    Seriously though. Loved this mod back in the day. Definitely wanna see it come back. I miss blowing things up with the explody staff XD


    HAH! Very awesome to finally see some responses. We could really use the help spreading the word on this. Both Andallas and I really want to see this mod come back from the grave as much as you guys :D. Also, it's totally cool to throw ideas out there if you want. We are open to suggestions about what you guys would live to see in BMS :)

    You know, another idea we threw around when developing the first BMS was quests. We never did add a quest mod, but, now that minecraft has something resembling quests, it's not too crazy to say we could expand on that with BMS specific quests. Maybe that's how you could get a Legendary Staff. ? :DORE: :DORE: :DORE:

    Quote from spluton

    I will keep an eye open, and who knows maybe open a second server for BMS style

    I loved the lantern and firecamp ( a little less the grenades :-p )

    is the cherry tree biome still in the possible plans ?


    Hey Spluton :)

    Glad to see you got my message. We are definitely looking to re-envision BMS, taking out the parts that were not core to our gameplay additions, and expanding on those that were. So with that, Camping, Magic, Stained glass, and a lot more will make it into the mod, including popular ideas like cherry blossom biomes. However, it's likely that things like grenades will not be going back into BMS. I can't say for sure though since we really just want to make a mod that people will like and that we feel expands on the gameplay dynamics minecraft already institutes.

    Quote from kakashiyeah

    YES, I have been waiting for BMS to make a comeback!!


    Thanks Kakashi, It's been far too long since we talked about BMS. We may as well throw up some ideas while we are searching for support in remaking this mod.

    We definitely want to re-define BMS. Bringing back our idea of "making the updates notch should have done." We can do better though. Like, I want to expand on our magic system much more, truly considering gameplay dynamics, and integrating with other minecraft systems. (Like magic villagers. Or magic shops in towns.)

    Anyway, let's just throw out some ideas.

    We want to raise BMS from the dead

    Hey Minecraft Community, It's been a while. :Sheep:

    First off, I wanted to apologize to all of our loyal fans who once played and loved this mod. We dropped off the development radar because life called for Andallas and I. I ended up moving to Seattle, and, Justin to Portland. With that being said, it was never our intention to stop updating Blackmodule's Minecraft Suite, and, revitalizing the project has always been something we talk about.

    Such a task as remaking BMS in the modern minecraft engine is no small task indeed, and, would require somewhere around a month of focused free-time deving. Justin and I are both MUCH better developers now than we were back when we were actively making BMS, and, we are confident that we could make BMS much better than it once was. The only thing holding us back at this point is support/interest.

    If there is interest enough in seeing this mod come back, please let us know. Post in this thread, tweet/follow us, share this page, whatever you can do to show that there is interest in BMS coming back.

    Anyway, bottom line. BMS will come back if there is enough support for it/interest in it.

    Thanks!

    Quote from jeetza

    Okay, which server is the new official one then?


    Well, BMS is out of date again, but, here is a list of servers that were running 1.1. They still are likely up, but, I haven't tested them since 1.2 came out.
