I think we could use this as a stopgap measure whilst we wait for Bukkit and the plugins to catch-up adequately for Minecraft 1.3. This would probably mean that the first week in August would be ideal. It is still during the Olympics. Since this would be a temporary specialised world, we could possibly use 1.3 for our TOGlympics or stick with 1.2.

Yes, this is a couple of weeks away but I think we need a little time to set it up.

Great idea, I was thinking about shotput with an item thrown on ice, but pearls would work much better.

Taking that idea further, it could become archery, by landing on or hitting a target.

Archery can be done as archery. These kids show their hurdling and archery (they take a while to get the archery started).

High Diving would be fun, leaping from a board into a small pool of water.

From a treehouse in a jungle perhaps?

I liked the combination high diving/archery from the Yogcast video (where you have to shoot through a narrow hole at a target while you are falling).

I have downloaded and run a version of the YogOlympics world. A few of the sports don't quite work because the redstone wiring needs to be fixed. Levers have been placed on glowstone etc which doesn't work or pistons get stuck.

They are also reliant on there being just two competitors plus a referee. I don't know that we necessarily want to do our sports this way, due to our numbers and a possibility of teams.

We may have many more sports we may want to do. While there is plenty more space on the Yogscast world, it feels very much like we would be tacking onto someone-else's world, rather than making our own work. I am thinking we may prefer to start something new for ourselves, even if some of the events are versions of what Yogscast used. The Yogs-Olympics world can be a backup if we don't get enough made. What do people think?

My suggestion is that
  • For one week, we discuss what sports to run (I'll start a new thread on that)
  • then for one week, we replace the Sanctuary world with a new TOGlympics world, where players can work on building a site.
  • on the weekend after the build stage, we run a couple of sessions where players can compete against each other in the events (we can discuss how to run it in this thread)
Comments please so I know whether this is a goer.
