Please, take a moment to open the spoiler and read.
Spoiler:
I have decided that I want to make my server Feed the Beast compatible, to maximize the amount of content I can deliver to players. I would like to know if anyone is explicitly against this. Feed the Beast is a simple MineCraft launcher, and will automatically download, install, and configure all required mods at once, similar to the technic launcher.

The mods that will be included are as follows:

REI's Minimap - To make navigating the large map easier for players.

Inventory Tweaks - In order to make categorizing and moving items in your inventory easier.

CustomNPC's - Needed for the lore-rich story & as trainers.

Jammy'sFurnitureMod - Adds a bunch of atmosphere to the game, with chairs, sinks, and other household items.

IndustrialCraft + GregTech + ModularForceField System - To help build the advanced cities, like those seen in the Pokemon games.

RailCraft - For the above-ground train system and the huge underground subway controlled by Team Paragon.

Obsidian Pressure Plates - Special pressure plates that are player-only activated, so more complex gym puzzles can be made utilizing pokemon commands with other types of pressure plates.

EvevatorMod - For the large skyscrapers in the biggers cities, as well as the the huge Pokemart.

Pixelmon - Of course.

+ any useful side-mods that come out. Currently, PokeLoot and Achievements! are both on the list to be added.

Terra's Realism Mod - see here: viewtopic.php?f=65&t=3002


About:
Spoiler:
Hello all, my name is Terramort. I have been playing Pixelmon for about 2 weeks now, and while I absolutely love the mod, I can't find a server that quite fits what I'm looking for, so I've decided to make my own. This is where you come in. I have some ideas for what is going to happen, but I've always believed that the players should have some input to the creation of what they play.

I’ve always been somewhat disappointed with how shallow the pokemon stories are. They only scratch at the surface of many deeper issues, due to the game’s target audience being children. So, I’ve decided to put together a map with a deeper, more complex story, much like that of Fable, or perhaps Morrowind, if enough time and effort can be put into the server.


Applications for builders and questers are now being accepted.
Once Pixelmon sees another release, the server will also be accepting beta testers. As of now, a certain "entity error" is preventing the server from running Pixelmon.

Please see the bottom of this post for applications.

Features:
Spoiler:
Full use the Custom NPC's mod. Fully functional stores, banks, transport systems, and random NPC's to add life to the game. All text is well worded and grammatically correct. This includes use of the Quest part of the mod to add a story to my map. Dialogue is done Morrowind style, with minimal input from the player and in-depth, lore-rich conversation from the NPC's. Also like the Elder Scrolls series, continuing the story (or even starting) is entirely optional. While it does make it harder in the beginning (since early quest rewards such as pokeballs and the pokedex are quite useful), it is entirely possible to spawn, leave town, become champion, and never do a single quest in the process.

Gym leaders will all be real players chosen for their specialty in specific types. After the first few Gyms, Gym challenges will be done by the gym leader choosing pokemon roughly equivalent to the player's pokemon team. This will only be possible if the leader has a large amount of duplicate pokemon at varying levels, and significant amount of pokemon of their chosen type.

All members of the Elite 4 and the Champion will be played through formal Championship battles, with 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th taking the position of Elite 4. It is at that time the Elite 4 members will choose their type specializations. Elite 4, Champion, and Championship battles will all be held at level 100, so it probably won't be until after Pixelmon adds static NPC's that the championships will be held.

Adventure mode - I will need plenty of builders, but the regular players will be playing Adventure.

Apricorn rarity - Apricorns will be controlled by region. White apcrns will only be planted near ice. Green in the jungle. Red in plains and all green biomes. Etc. etc., with a few rare types that will only be planted near natural landmarks, like volcanoes. Player planting will be OFF to control inflation.

#15450 I have had a look at the pictures and the server looks great! Riverside town looks nice and the lab is pretty cool too. I also think that adding mini tournaments would be nice as it could help players level up pokemon and give them a prize as well not to mention that it would be fun. I would love to help out anyway possible and im not bad with custom npcs either so i could probably set up some quests.
By joojlee38
#15452 This region looks very cool. You should make the roads leading from town to town using gravel because it makes I look more realistic. Other than that, keep up the good work. If you need help, send me a message telling me your ip so I can help you build!

Safari Zone
Big Pokémon Center
Elite Four
Hotel
Houses for purchase

But overall great server :)


These are all great ideas, and I have some ideas for them. I know there will be most the major zones from the other games (Bug Catching Contest, Safari Zone, Zoos and Ranches). I would also like to find a way to incorporate Secret Bases, Beauty Contests, and some version of the Pokelathon, for although I'm not sure how that can be put in yet. There will also be some sort of casino where players can gamble and win special currency, which can be redeemed for TMs, Pokemon, or rare items.

I like your idea of a big Pokemon Center and I'll see what I can do. Houses are already planned, but will most likely be built by others besides myself, as the storyline and main quest buildings/cities will take some time. Large hotels are also a good idea (I already have planned a horror-themed subquest that will take place in either a hotel or a mansion.)

To all who would like to help, I greatly appreciate your support. I get payed on Tuesday, and it will be at that time that I bring the server online. You guys seem interested, so I'll continue working full-speed ahead to get a bare-bones layout by then. Thanks for the great ideas!

#15664 Ok, after some double checking, I have the funds to bring a small server online today. Here is what you will require:

MineCraft 1.5.1

Pixelmon 2.1.1 -

Custom NPC's 1.5.1 -

Make sure you modify the config file by SUBTRACTING 100 from all ID's that start with 4xxx, and ADD 100 to all ID's that start with 5xxx.

I will be adding a downloadable config file later to save work.
