Irimar has offered us the temporary use of his server to do some practice in working on the timelapse build (Thank you very much!)
So we'd like to get some people on, so we can design out some buildings and things, to help get an idea of what sort of design elements we will be using, and so we can help make up some base designs that we can all use, to help keep the entire build looking like it all belongs in the same place.
I've made the executive decision here, we will be using Glimmar's Steampunk texture pack. You will need to download the latest version of it AND MC patcher. Because it changes the look drastically of some of the blocks, you really will need to have it, so you can see what look these buildings will have.
Find the texture pack here - Glimmar's Steampunk v3.7.1[32X][1.2] Animated Cogs & Alchemy at Work in a Dark Victorian Industrial World - Iron Golem Pics! pg. 402 - Minecraft Forum
(just download the zip and save it into your "texturepacks" folder in your minecraft folder). And that page has the link to the patcher, which you need to run (or else the textures don't all display properly)
This server will be whitelisted, so if everyone who wants to be involved can please send me a PM with their gamename (case sensitive), and I will compile it into a list for the whitelist and I'll PM everyone back the server details so you know where to login.
(Even if you just want to come in and help or to offer opinions, feel free, you don't have to feel there is any pressure to build magnificent things to join in)
It would also be good if we can all arrange to meet there on a certain night, so we can all chat in mumble (or in game) while we play about with design.
So far we have these people interested (and I'll update this list as I get more):
