    posted a message on NOT YOUR AVERAGE SMP! Vanilla Communal Building Server

    Alright, here we go.


    Discord name: ArcticNight#4469

    Preferred playstyle: I've generally always been more of a gatherer. My preferred way of playing SMP is working closely together in more intimate groups of people, sharing everything and working towards common goals, rather than doing things on my own - this is why this server seems like a good fit for me (I also strongly prefer pure vanilla).
    I like assisting people and getting everything they need in order to build freely. I can do menial tasks like mining for pure stone for endless hours - whatever needs to be done, I'm usually your guy. I never spent a lot of time building, but I have been wanting to do it more, and since I've done it so little it's possible I could improve a lot with some actual practice.

    Time spent playing: I've played since the day the game went from alpha to beta. In total I've only played one or two years, and most of it was spent in the first few years, so since I made my big return lately I've mostly tried to catch up on updates.

    What I can offer the server: I'm a friendly and mature person who's easy to get along with and never a problem to have on your server. I'm a hard worker and can easily invest tons of time when I find it interesting to play. If a server is active and lasting I am very dedicated and my goal is to be part of building a big world where it's actually a serious endeavor that isn't abandoned right away. As an example of this, in the link in my forum signature is a forum we made for a project server I was co-founder of back in the day. We spent a couple of years working on it, and when people abandoned the project I did my best to keep it alive for as long as I could. I can be valuable in the sense that I always want to have things go well and stay alive and move forward, and I always stay positive and refuse to give up.
    I also tend to have ideas for builds, it's just executing them that has been the problem, with me mostly letting others do that in the past.

    I hope you deem my application worthy and think I can be a good addition to your server. I would do all I can to make sure I don't let you down if given a chance to join your crew. If I'm not what you're looking for I completely understand and wish you the best of luck :)

    Sorry to start this off with a perhaps silly question, but it's better if I get this cleared up before I attempt to apply; Is a great expertise in building a requirement for joining, or can you be a novice builder but still find a place on the server? I'm sure I could be a good applicant, save for my for now great lack in skill when it comes to designing builds, and as the server is build-focused I wanted to see if there's a chance I can join anyway, if my application is otherwise good enough.

    If I can't join, you can consider this free exposure :)

    I wasn't compatible enough with the last person, so I'm looking again. Someone social who can play a lot would be great. Don't be shy, people! :)

    Sorry buddy, I just found someone a few hours before your post. I'm probably done looking for now.

    You know, S0lli, you kinda had me sold with your very first sentence. Just the fact that you wanted to add those details about your name tells me more about how well our personalities might match than anything else in your post. It's true that there's a lot of unfortunate circumstances at play here, but at the end of the day Minecraft is a game where you can almost always have fun if you play with the right people, and even if playing it with you doesn't fulfill my dreams in the game and I'd have to perhaps consider playing with someone else as well, I still don't think I'd want to pass up on enjoying the game with a person I might get along great with.


    The only thing that might be a negative circumstance from my end is that my dedication depends a lot on the other person's dedication, so if they're not around I might lose interest too, but just like you I always come back but might not play much as I too get bored on my own. As a conclusion I can say that perhaps having a friend I can play with in the long run, even if it's not always awfully often or actively, could very well be worth it, and there are definitely ways we can make it work, perhaps with a slower server where we just enjoy playing it whenever we can. It can't be that bad, can it? :)


    I should also add that I, too, have anxiety and play Minecraft to escape reality, so I think we can understand each other well. Another interesting note is that the best friend I've ever had in Minecraft was an Aussie who was super cool, so perhaps bringing some of that land down under flavor into my Minecraft worlds is the exact right ingredient for making this game work for me, haha.

    Anyway, I'm gonna PM you my Discord ID here on this forum right now and you can feel free to add me so we can talk more and maybe give it a shot, try to have some lasting fun that doesn't have to end right away for silly reasons. For now, thank you for a great post :)

    I really appreciate the offer, but I doubt I will take you up on it. I'm not much of a community person, I prefer more intimate servers, ideally with only one other person. Best of luck though! :)

    Thank you, I'll keep that one in mind too. Bright and warm is always positive in design :)

    Ohh yeah, quartz is a brilliant idea! It will make it look like some sort of holy sanctuary, giving the impression of safety despite the atmosphere. It's perfect! To make it even better, I have just gathered a ton of it because I've always wanted to use it for something, but I didn't know what. Thank you so much! :)

    Also, to clarify my original post; it's all on the Nether roof, so there's no threat of monsters. I might however want to make a similar thing in the actual Nether at some point, so your advice on how to keep that place safe will come in handy then. Thanks again!

    posted a message on What's the best material for building in the Nether if you want to negate the creepy atmosphere?

    I'm not much of a builder, so I need some advice here from people who are better at utilizing all the different blocks out there. I have a really good exp grinder on the roof of the Nether, which a guy I used to play with built for us. When he left I wanted to keep the world as I couldn't build a grinder like that myself, and I made a portal next to it leading to where I plan to have my new base in the overworld, so I can leave the place I had with him behind.

    I want to create a little Nether hub by the portal and grinder, a cozy little place to aid me in the transition from my old base, and whenever I go to the grinder. My problem is that whenever I try to envision building this room, every material I think of using feels like it would feel like an old haunted place or something out of a horror movie, with all the atmospheric noise up there. Like the title says, what would the best material be to help negate this feeling so I can be as comfortable as possible in there? I have access to most kinds of blocks, so don't be afraid to be creative in your suggestions, and thanks in advance :)

    Thanks for the post, you and your friend sound like nice people. Unfortunately most things you explained are kinda the opposite of what I'm looking for, but I'm sure you can find someone who will be happy to join you guys :)
