H0pe's Random Thoughts #29: What I Didn't Expect, Updates in Minecraft Servers, Hermitcraft
After weeks and days of pondering on what to write for this series, I decided to make another post for this series. This is also my first one for 2016, although very late to greet Happy New Year. For some reason, I had to deal with exams, college events and real life things, hence I delayed and slightly hesitated in writing another post.
Before we begin, a massive thank you to +Biffa: Strategy, Survival & Indie Games
for his constructive criticism over my previous post, where he did some corrections over what I wrote there, especially over the uncertain future of Hermitcraft. I didn't even expect that he'd show up, which surprised me. Not that many Hermits seem to write much on posts, but possibly look over it for a while. I also like to thank +LaminCookie #PrayForParis
for his response over my hard work in the previous entry. It sort of lightens a heavy burden over my issues from the past year I encountered.
Anyway, speaking of issues, I made a formidable decision to leave one of the servers I played in Minecraft due to personal issues with several of the staff, primarily over taking jokes and such as serious stuff. When I made posts of my departure on the 1st of April last January 3, 2016, there has been some discussion over it. I later made a second post four days later, which generated even more discussion among my now former server mates. Later, I removed it from my list, and over time, I feel relieved because I can make room for more servers for me to join.
Secondly, one of the servers I never really left ever since I joined, Lagtopia, finally got its recent server reset, and started fresh and new. We even had a lot of members come back to start anew and fresh, and we even had new members on. It's a relief to have a restart regardless is 1.9 will be out or not. Also, towards the end of this month, and possibly within the first week of February, I'll be starting anew (hopefully soon) in something you wouldn't expect. It'll just take a little more time, and it will all come together.
Next off, about the Hermitcraft stuff. Well guys, I also slowly got bored of doing Vanilla Minecraft, and ventured off into Modded Minecraft, starting with the modpack made by the amazing, hardworking +xisumavoid
, founder of the Hermitcraft G+ group (yes, I'm talking about the Xisumanati pack). It took me some time to install it and ATLauncher, and when I finally tried it out, I found it to be awesome, amazing, and having a lot of stuff that should be in vanilla too, especially in terms of the food and the blocks and tools and such. The problem is, I mostly do singleplayer in modded and have 0% experience in technical stuff there. :P I will soon do some technical stuff with some help from other people playing it, so don't
worry about me regarding that.
In terms of video content, after months of hesitation, I decided to give the Ark series of the Hermitcraft members currently playing it (Zueljin, Sl1pg8r, KingDaddyDMAC, Monkeyfarm, and xBCrafted) and their non-Hermit friends (Mazion, who knows SL1pg8r and Draaxlp, a friend of Zueljin) a chance. Technically, I started off from their Season 2 finale, which made me laugh hard so much, that my jaw and throat almost ached in laughter, then I tagged along with them in Season 3 (I don't have ARK by the way, and didn't even dare get it during the Free thing on Steam lol) via their videos. It turns out to be generally ok, with some funny parts inserted in between. (Yes, I ended up subbed to both Draaxlp and Mazion later on) About Biffa, I started watching his adventures in FTB Infinity. As soon as Jessassin restarted his Minecraft entry via Void World, I listened to his video series, and later subbed to him. However, in terms of HC videos, I primarily do xBCrafted and TFC (I need not care if I miss out of all the other "cool HC video stuff", I'll do my video watching as I please, as only the person doing the video watching can control on how he or she managed the sub boxes)
Well, I wish I can tell you more on what I'm planning for this year, so that may be prepared in the next entry. Also, at some point, I'll be showing some potential content in the coming days soon over this community and my Twitter as well, as a lot of content tends to be posted there. Hope to see you soon in the next entry. If you have anything to say, especially constructive criticism, let me know.
