Hi all, I'm not sure anyone will remember me since I stopped playing 7 years ago but I played a BLM character named Thurgood on the Fenrir server. Since I stopped playing I'm sure many of the people I used to play with have moved on, but I did pass my character off to a couple people, and the last I heard Grimace still had him...but that was years ago.
Now, let me tell you a little bit about what I'm trying to do. Essentially my wife and I both have very fond memories of FFXI. We have a strong affinity with Windurst especially since it was my starting town (I was a taru), and it's also the town we got married in game. We are actually married in real life and just celebrated our 4th anniversary.
After playing minecraft for a little while my wife and I were having a conversation about FFXI and how we still remember to songs and just overall how magical Windurst felt to us. That quickly evolved into the idea to rebuild Windurst in minecraft. We actually started out back in Minecraft version 1.7.3 when there were limited creative tools available without mods, and the height limit was not where we needed it to be to build the great star tree. Now with the latest release of Minecraft 1.2, they raised the height limit to 256 blocks making the project a possibility.
So, why am I making this post? Well, we need help. We thought our first go was OK, but it had a lot of flaws, so we plan to start over. I am looking for two things:
1. a person who would be willing to take several screen shots of windurst, at least for now Windurst Walls. Our first go at it was based on a couple youtube videos I came across and the map from the strategy guide. In-depth photos showing some of the more hidden locations of windy walls along with photos that help show scale would be really beneficial.
2. people who would be interested in working on the server. This is the just small server I have on my computer and can only hold a few people. If there is an actual interest in this I'd be willing to open up the server to let others work on it.
3. Are there any other forums that FFXI players still hang around? I remember alla being pretty big back when I played so this is where i gravitated to.
If you remember me I'd love to hear from you. This is still one of my favorite games of all time and I'd like to create a minecraft monument to it.
Let me know if you're interested or just pop by and say hi ^-^.
