Well, then Duck can compete on a spleef arena against himself. I wonder who will win?

Nominations are great but we need some-one to volunteer for the position. I am prepared to give it a title, a spot in the executive carpark and a bundle of stakes and knives (and possibly lots of snow).

Make that "steak knives" and you may have my interest

Edit: Also how cool would a TOG Spleef tournament captured and time-lapsed be? Or a few royal rumbles...

Well, Minecraft has fenceposts and swords. That's the best I can do. Hence, stakes and knives. [1]

We have previously recorded a combat experiment on the old Survival server in the TOGasseum. Unfortunately, Vimeo didn't like it and removed it. I still have a copy (I think) and Joohansson might have the original. The main problem was the distance to the combat from the camera/player position, so you couldn't see the arrows.

[1] Just realised that pork chops and cooked beef could be regarded as steak, but hey, I think Buffy when I think of stakes.[2]
[2] Hence I think big stakes, not twiggly little twigs

I was just thinking how you could get a good view for recording the footage, might need to build a video recording platform... But how to do it without it being ugly (because the arena looks so good!)

If we wanted to film it, I (or someone else) could always go into creative mode to be able to fly around and record the action, so we could get a close enough view without needing any platforms built that would be unsightly.

Youtube apparently has a restriction on the length of the video, which is why we went with vimeo last time, so we might just have to edit it down to only the more interesting pieces to make it fit.

Right - so another video of me it is!

I like the idea of creative mode for camera ops.

Even on Frontier I don't mind the Division treating things like this as special cases (cf. the degriefing the other day). It's for the benefit of the Division.

To an extent, I don't mind the spleef floor being spawned on Frontier, but that might be a little hard to arrange. If we have a spleef officer though, they might be able to be granted permissions for that.

Of course, on Sanctuary, all of this is already available.

Well not really... stacks of snow could be spawned by a modmin and put into a chest in the arena building for use in the spleef arena, under the condition that it was only to be used for the arena, and not to be taken by any players for any other use other than the arena floor.

I do like the idea of a prize, and that's very generous Akira!
