The idea is:
New world to replace Sanctuary for a couple of weeks.
One week to build so we can run it during the Olympics.
One weekend to run organised games.
Rest of the Olympics to muck around amongst yourselves whenever you want.
The world will then be made publicly available for download.
As to which events will be added, that will depend on what is built. If you want to race on a kayak course, then during the build week, you need to organise people to make one (or make one yourself). If you want to do other events, then they will need to be run.
On this Friday night or Saturday morning, I will set up the new world. I intend to make it like Sanctuary, so you can be in Creative or Survival mode during the build week. Then if need be, we can reset everyone to Survival mode only during the events (so no cheating
). I might also add WorldEdit for use by Mods and Admins (though I don't think it will help much except in speeding up the construction of regular shapes like cylinders).
I am also arranging with Ulric so that we can get more articles on the homepage. I want an article on the TOGlympics to be one of them (as well as ones on Spleef and Hunger Games and Wild West and anything else). I am looking for volunteers TOGlympics correspondents to help record/screenshot the build week and the events. I might shift to nightly maps for the TOGlympics world so we can see the progress better.
