Now you too can wonder where the banner I put at your place is =D
I have already noticed before that I'm also on a map.

I did not know how markers are made. Only now I learn about the banners on maps.
So I probably also have a banner somewhere.
First thing to check was the hair on the statue, but no. that's not it.

I now remember that one time I have noticed Drakilax near my base,
said something like "just mapping the area"

I made a map of my area.
There is no banner on it.
Also I notice that the full zoom map looks nice,
I should have made one and put on the wall.

Then I learn that banners don't automatically appear on map,
they have to be put on the map by mouse click
(but will at least disappear when broken)

So I can only use the 1 map.
But it's too zoomed out to be useful.
I take the map to my base and the marker does not disappear so banner is still somewhere there.

I try to find it but fail.
Having the zip file of the world allows me to make destructive changes and restore everything later.
I start searching by removing terrain with TNT.

Looks now like this but still not found:

Either it's well hidden or I'm not good at looking for it.

I'm going to delete the zip from my Drive in the next few days, FYI -- I think everyone who wants it got it already, though?

Man loves beans, what can you say?
Rateus' weapon names
"The warm breeze you feel from behind me"
"The chair I just left smells funny"
"Oops. A little solid almost came out with that one."
"I ate a ton of broccoli earlier."

Dude, why is all your gear named after wind? XD
'Cuz it is. I like stormy weather themes, and dragons. It's my thing.
It's like if I asked you why you're an alien.

Ok, the game is finished now.
The official world file might be removed.
I will keep my copy for some more time.
But not forever.

Time for some end thoughts.
When server was active I spent some time on it.
More than I usually spend on games.
But that's OK.
I knew that I can afford it
because soon the game would be over anyway
and not take any more time.

I arrived at the game without much expectation for anything.
Also I did not know anyone.
My first idea was to find some place where I could do stuff without interfering with other people's creations.
I had no idea how "territorial" people are and how expansively I would build
(and I joined when everyone already had started making something)
so just to be safe and avoid potential conflict
instead of starting somewhere in the start island
I found a place more far away.

Exactly at the same time when I was making my very first steps
others were already defeating the dragon!

My experience with minecraft is very uneven.
In some aspects of the game I'm still a total noob,
in others I'm much better than that.

At first when found a place
my only plan was to try build a base and see what happens next.

But some time later I defined for myself some arbitrary goals to achieve.

GOAL 1
build some nice "secret base"

I found a much better place and relocated there.
I set up a base but the place has potential for much much better.
But time was limited and I had other goals too.
So only partially achieved.
But still happy about this.

GOAL 2
set up a successful civilisation

I imported some villagers by "recruiting volunteers" in a village and transporting on boat.
plan was to set up a villager civilisation at my base
so that I provide them their houses and job places
and they keep their own food and reproduce and expand
this was extremely successful on my own server
but here it had no chance of success on this server because of the mob griefing setting.
(which I was not fully aware of when I joined)
so I ended up with a club of 6 farmers and 1 guy.
At least they kept importing golems which I could recycle for iron using a trap and some sand/gravel.

GOAL 3
Industrial mass production of music disks

There was the challenge for having the most disks
I already had the idea for my music disk factory
which I intended to use in a video I have in plans to make one day
so this was the perfect opportunity to test my design.
I did not expect that iron would be so rare!
In my game in 1.15.2 iron is much easier to find.
Here it became a precious resource.
and I spent much more time looking for iron than I thought I would.
And my design involved 1 iron golem and 10 hoppers!
I totally forgot about warm climate being deadly for the snowmans!
So built the factory in wrong place.
So I had to improvise and use cats instead so I spent some more time obtaining cats.
Finally my music factory was less effective than I wanted it to be.
But still allowed me to win that prize!

I see that in Val's creeper "farm" the part which spawns and delivers creepers is good design that I might reuse in the future.

GOAL 4
an affordable Dzuna statue

When joined and already familiar with all official challenges
I expected than many of you would be building the statues
but so far nobody had made one.
this was a perfect opportunity for me.
I decided to make a statue
which doesn't require too much effort and resources
but still looks nice and recognizable.
and maybe to act as a trigger for others to start their constructions too.
(as it's still possible to build something even better)
I already had some amethyst available which had the perfect colour.
So I quickly built the statue at my base.
Nobody made another one
so my Dzuna statue is the only Dzuna statue and therefore the best Dzuna statue.
Great, another prize for me!
Double win!

the Dzuna probably would have said:
That prize should have been for me. Clearly, I am the best Dzuna.
GOAL 5
collider!

Another idea I had for a future video was the collider.
I had this idea of a pseudoscientific "particle collider"
where the "particles" are TNT minecarts.
which makes some kind of sense as in minecraft the elementary building blocks are macroscale objects.
I built it and tested in for the first time on the end day and was surprised by the outcome but still that was fun.

GOAL 6
insert references to things nobody knows anyway

In my base i inserted some references
to some my other things or ideas
(even though I can expect nobody to recognise this
so it's not even a valid easter egg)
some examples are my secret base motto of endless progress
through buisness, science and illegal activities,
the lorem ipsum dolor sit down and enjoy,
the bedrock, gravel and time travel,
and so on.

THE END
but we still have the world.
(Hello, world!)
Now, in the afterwhen,
I have two things I would like to do:

1: visit and discover people's creations and take some good ideas and inspirations

2: WHERE IS THAT DAMN BANNER?!
Through the magic of having practically unlimited copies of the save file
I could totally destroy my base in the search for the hidden banner
and I'm still not able to find it!


OTHER SIDE EFFECT

is that by joining the game
I transitioned into
joining this forum
and feeling welcome here.

This also helped me and gave me the courage I need
to be open to people as I'm now attempting to join a community
here in the real actual world
(as opposed to online communities)
and normally starting relationships and interaction with people are difficult for me, normally.


Thanks once again for the good game together!

I can relate to this.
Really great to hear! :lol: Glad we tricked you into joining Cresnov!!

I'm always coming up with new ideas, games, and events to try on the forum. So be sure to stick around. It's really fun reading your posts too. :happyhug:

Fun fact: if you remove the banner without updating the map (wether by not holding it in your hand or by locking it at a table), the banner will still show up on the map even though it's not there anymore. Can't play these day so I can't check that theory, but that would explain why you can't find the banner

I tested this:
I placed a banner and added it to a map.
Then I moved away, with the map, and left the map on a wall.
I returned to the banner and destroyed it.
I went to the map and took it again.
The banner was still on the map.
I went with the map to where the banner previously was.
Banner disappeared from map.

This means that while the map still shows the banner in my base, it is there somewhere.

You know, there's a surprising number of things you can hide up at build limit. Especially now that they raised it to 320 in 1.19.
