Just thought I'd share a few shots of what else is going on around the Spleef arena, I'm planning on turning the area into a kind of playground with puzzles, races, PvP and of-course spleef. This is by no means finished and I plan to add some more areas with the intention of turning the space into a place where you can go on the server to take some time out and play some of the mini-games that can be incorporated into Minecraft, kill each other and just generally have some fun when taking a break from mining and building.
First pic is the jumping puzzle, while not huge it is tricky and I'd tried to throw in a bit of everything; double jumps, diagonals, ladders, a timed piston and an underwater section.
Next pic is of the Roller-coaster, this is very much a WIP but the basic loop is nearly complete. I'm trying to make it more like a real coaster in that alot of the track will be using momentum to push the cart around rather than redstone.
This is a small PvP arena made for 1v1. It will be closed in when finished and has a grandstand on one side for spectators. It also has a few obstacles wich make movement difficult and some wich kill/hurt.
Next is the boat race, again very much a WIP. I'm currently trying to extend the edges so more folks can race along at once. It needs alot of work though and the terrain in the area is quite flat so it's tricky/annoying. I may even abandon it for a more suitable hilly area so long as it's not populated, or it might continue underground.
Last is a shot of the area as a whole with the Spleef arena in the centre.
I've got a few more things in mind to add, as always I'm open to suggestions as to what you'd like to see or what could be added to what exists.
