    Teh's Next Big Project!

    Post by Teh on Sat Jan 29, 2011 4:47 pm

    Hey, I got a great idea for a project on SMP,
    A Giant Obsidian and Iron Block chessboard!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Supplies and total number of blocks for the chessboard


    1 Tile = 16 by 16 blocks

    1 Side = 128 blocks

    Full Perimeter = 512 blocks

    Full Area = 16,384

    Obsidian Needed = 8,192

    Iron Blocks Needed = 8,192

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Chess Piece Info

    Circular at the bottom

    Need to be distinct shapes, so anyone can tell them apart.

    Undecided size, of course smaller than 16x16.

    The White pieces will be made of white wool, rather than Iron

    The Black pieces will be made of black wool, rather than Obsidian

    16 Pawns (8 White Wool, 8 Black Wool)
    4 Rookes (2 White Wool, 2 Black Wool)
    4 Knights (2 White Wool, 2 Black Wool)
    4 Bishops (2 White Wool, 2 Black Wool)
    2 Kings (1 White Wool, 1 Black Wool)
    2 Queens (1 White Wool, 1 Black Wool)

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Why are you making this?

    I am planning on getting this gigantic chess board onto MachinimaRealm's Minecraft Craft Creations
    I'd like to ask if I could use our the server's Youtube channel(if there is one to this date) so we can get a
    bit of publicity as well as some new faces on the server!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    What can I do to help?

    I thought it over, and I might as well make a little team of maybe 3 or 4 dedicated people who could
    work on it as much and as long as they can. I mean, it isn't very big, so we shouldn't take more than
    maybe a day (real time) to finish the chessboard and pieces.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Where are you going to build this?

    I was hoping to build the chess board in the portal to the left of the spawn, and out a bit.
    There is nothing out that way except the Mossy Cobble towers.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Leave your comments and ideas, it would be much appreciated!
