Nooope. In no way is that a proto-NAW.


That is the server Ein ran before NAW, ColRap as we most often refer to it. I had only joined it about a month before its end. Server ended because the Halloween update that added the Nether introduced some odd lighting bug which wasn't common to most other players, it bothered us because of Columbia. All the air blocks below it and the shadows created some issue that didn't exist before.


Ein would host a few smaller maps over the next few months while we tried to save ColRap. Eventually we learned we couldn't and the bug didn't seem like it was going to be fixed any time soon. Eventually the idea of NAW popped into his head, comparing to Avatar: The Last Airbender but it wasn't the source of his idea. And so from here we went to create S1.

First thing I built on the server was a wooden dick (very small), can be found on the beaches of the bay just to the right of Columbia (beaches opposite to those on the same land mass as Columbia).


I had intended to set it on fire... forgot that fire was turned off so I convinced Shadow (who was an admin) to light it for me and cover it in lava:

This last one also shows New Columbia. Ein's first attempt was simply Columbia inspired, he decided to start over and try and re-create as much as he could from the trailers and images that were available.

Rapture was mostly Rapture inspired but has several locations related to the game... of varying accuracy. My understanding is that this may have been the third Rapture?


This likely only has Rapture but I'm linking more for the videos but the map file would likely interest others of you: http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/ma ... of-rapture

Double Post! Because I can.


Was digging through his threads on the MC forums:

http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mi ... -the-skies Scroll to bottom of OP, see SPOILER for images of Columbia 2.0..... default textures, burn the eyes.

What Ein had been working on after NAW, server is no longer up. He started an all new Rapture here as well... it looked a lot like what I would imagine Gotham would look like in MC.

Literally, nothing to show here. The point is, this was the beginning of how Ein came to design the Orc camps.

Ein fiddled with the idea of magic early in NAW design and can see it going on in the trailer for S1 a bit during my fight with Shadow. Nothing really came form it but he would sometimes return to the idea... and then I would proceed to test it out to the point of crashing the server. This reminds me of when he was working on the armor textures and I had just had my character stand for a few hours as a model, was mostly at my PC during this too since I would have to move a bit.
