What's here? In case you missed it: http://goo.gl/pbMMDi
Ok it's official, the release is here! We're excited for you to try it and experience what we have in store. We would like to release this and have everyone get used to it, and then get some feedback about steering it into the future. As stated before (around, various places), there's so much more in store so keep that in mind - we're taking this some place.
Have fun exploring the map we have for you - it's small, it's a beginner map, we know. Keep in mind, again, this is the first step on a hopefully deep journey... a Saga. There's secrets in it, exploring will be rewarded. If you find something that doesn't make sense to you, obviously ask. Check the FAQ I'm including as the first reply to this post for answers to all of the questions we could think of. They're not just one-word answers, they include some reasoning and logic we used to make the decisions. If there's something related to a plugin being broken or something not working, and it's also something not answered in this FAQ definitely ask! We may have missed stuff somewhere. We DID put a lot of time into this though, so before you start asking why things are balanced how they are, or making suggestions, remember, things are the way they are for a reason - you're only seeing the most basic introductory step in an extremely long journey. More maps are going to be released shortly. There is a full-on everything-you-need-to-know guide written by @Itacelis that's on it's way and will be added here when it's ready.
There is a custom and unique crafting experience that's part of the Adventure Update we've built. I think it makes total sense and is obvious, but maybe not everyone does, and that's ok. To make explaining it even easier, I made a short (~4 minute) video guide explaining the very basics to get you started, check it out:
And in case you missed the original hype video (cinematic of Shimmerleaf Grove), here it is again:
So that's what we have for now. I'll keep my eye out for questions and add content as necessary.
Explore, discover, and have fun D00ds! Let us know what you think!
