JR Craft scenery for cover images

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm going to make JR a cover image to put on the "minecraft" section of the gaming servers, to replace the pretty boring default minecraft image. (I also think the default minecraft text is extremely bland and not attractive, we should customise that to describe JR as a community and server rather than minecraft itself). This image will be similar to this image I made for a minigame, previously:

I'll avoid the watermark at the bottom, too :P 

So I'll need some nice scenery, from any server, to download as a schematic (can be done with worldedit, or with MCEdit if I have the map), which can set up for a cool scene representing different aspects of the server. I'll also feature our favourite staff members ;) (That brings up another question, should I put in staff members that have not really come back to the server, or should I just put anyone in, arbitrarily?)

So if you guys have scenery ideas, as in locations on Survive, Creative, Minigames, or even Classic or Survival, then let me know! Also, if you have ideas for scenes, like "Jamie punching Kyle with Flaw in the background fighting a sheep", then also let me know :) I want the images to encompass how life on JRCraft is like, rather than something weird or unusual.

I would say just add the currently active staff members, what's the point in adding someone who can't be bothered to even come say hi anymore. 

Could always grab an image of what was "the loginhub" from the Classic spawn, you know that big icy structure. Could have it so that staff are chasing each other round it, just a quick idea.

I like that idea and I think it could look cool (hence I'll make it), but I'm worried about how let down people might be when seeing our current spawn :P We need to get working on them!

Hey again, I finally downloaded the mineimator program again and I'm down to make a screenshot, if I can get access to the Classic world or if an admin and @Jamie can help me get a 3D Schematic save file of a part of JRCraft. To show you guys another example of what I can make, here's something I put together in around 30 minutes to an hour (I didn't time myself).

Featuring Jamie, @Flaw and me.

The lighting of the actual fire isn't great, there might be a function of some sort I may have missed that illuminates the fire. Also, this is a 3D file, so I could take an image from a different perspective to better see some things, like Flaw's hand (I chose this angle though because things like Flaw's face were positioned according to it).
