So... What's up next?

  • TDC is pretty much finished, only a few more chapters to write. I can already confirm there will be no 4th chapter or a direct 'sequel', given TDC itself is the prequel of the whole Daina-background (sort of).


    Currently I'm trying to figure out what to write next (as a more developed story, not counting all the minor 10page sidejabs). And given you people are actually supposed to read what I write, why not gather a few ideas?


    What genre? Scifi? Fantasy? Something realistic for once?
    Where does the store take place? Daina? Future? Serpia? Present?
    Themes to be included? Dragons? Vampires? Mechas? Zombies? Alines? Psychotic rabbits trying to build a tower to the moon?


    Throw me some bones (aka ideas), maybe my mind picks up an idea and produces a storyline from it :P

  • Try sciencefiction/realistic hybridisation? eg genetic experiments gone wrong? Where the hero(ine) discovers a truth long lost since hidden by the govs xD

    That would pretty much hit 'Deus Ex Electrica'. An old story I designed a few years ago, but never found a good consistent storyline ^^'

  • Just to confirm, have you dropped the junk story?

    Is the answer to this question no?

  • Probably going to pick this up later on, maybe not. Since I've got loads of words already, I will lock the thread until I come to actually use some of them.


    As I said.
    I write what comes to my mind, if people throw REALLY difficult junk at me and my creativity doesn't speak to me, I can hardly do anything :P

  • If you need a story, I got one that you can write from your point of view :)
    I'm not much of a writer and I never finished the story.
    This was in my high school years.
    The imagination was there but I didnt had the motivation to write.


    I have the plot, characters, race's, world, religion, magic style.
    Its a 3 part story like lord of the rings.


    If you are interested I can give/help you with it.
    Maybe you can give a nice twist to it and it can become a good story.


    Btw I'm a big fan of TDC. Love the story.


  • I'm not sure whether completing a foreign pre-defined story would work out well...
    A friend of mine already tried to push me into writing a dual-story (two authors writing chapters individually), but we didn't make it past the first few pages...

    Its not like dual story writing.
    Only if you need some inspiration about a new world and stuff.
    I'm not working on it anymore and also not planning on doing it in the future but maybe its usfull for your new story?

  • I have been on normal servers, and they can get pretty entertaining, so I would imagine that an IC Squared sever could generate enough data for a story.

    I've seen people trying to write games into stories a few times.
    Usually I respectfully averted my eyes and did not destroy their hopes by telling them the stories were utter... you can guess what word goes here.


    Eventually it's possible to write Minecraft-content into stories... but since Minecraft is focussed around mining, processing and then constructing stuff, less about actual action/ adventure...

  • True, but I am sure that if you watch bitter rivals long enough, you will find something to write about.

    What about a sci-fi Minecraft, quantum suits and mining laser spam galore, frame-powered spaceships blasting each other into the Void with Mining Laser deployers, drilling for valuable Diamonds and Iron for more weapons of mass TNT spam, and private bickering amongst companies IndustrialCorp, PahiCraft Incorporated, Gregtech Intergalactical, and other companies, and bold soldiers fighting for their lives against hordes of hostile mobs...

    PLEASE!!! PLEASE, ALLMIGHTY DRAGON LORD MODDERATOR!!! *calming down a bit*
    This idea gets... :Uranium Ingot: uranium! Why uranium? BECAUSE IT LOOKS FRIKKIN COOL! Got it? Idea looks frikkin cool and uranium looks frikkin cool! *calming down a bit more*
    I like this idea. Just imagine it! Stories about Minecraft PLUS Science Fiction PLUS the best graphics in the world (not counting reality)! *calming down*

    Sorry for my not perfect English, my native language is German. If I made any mistakes, please tell me.
    The "now" in "I don't now" is intended.
    I pretty much stopped playing Minecraft for Kerbal Space Program and you should do the same!

    And put some Spambots stuff (Get it from here : Diary of last survivors of the spambot apocalypse ) in that story and it will be perfect

  • I would think that Daina, except a long time later, in a steampunk era, would make for a rather interesting story. As in, demons/angels and magic, etc, but steampunk.

    It has become a little stubbly. Implement facial hair growth in IC²? Vision continuously grows more furry until you shave. (approx once every 2 minecraft days ;P)

    Check out Factorio- A game where you build a factory from scratch.

  • I have resumed working on an particulary old (1-2 years) story of mine and are progressing nicely.
    You can exspect a new 1xx page novel somewhen along the next 1-2 months, I would guess.


    And yes, it does contain a failed military experiment :P And a sexy girl, BOOYA!
    PS: Oh, and it's not 'Deus Ex Electrica', but a story labelled 'Afterdusk'.

  • nope, they will all just leave the game no matter what people adding into the game. it's getting boring, i have seen friends left the game, one by one. this is a big issue, i see people discuss this in apknite about what will be adding or the expecting new updates etc. but the idea is not so interesting to pull people back to the game
