It's that time of year again

Post by Zwall99 on 9/21/2013, 8:46 am

Hello everyone. By now, you know me as Zack or Zwall. But what most people dont know, is my story here on Oasis. Today is a great day. Today marks my two years of playing on the server. To be honest, you dont even have to read it, if you dont want to. But I'll put it in spoilers anyway.

DAYUM


To think it's already been two years. Seems like yesterday I was walking around the 1.8 spawn.
For just such the occasion, I'm gonna talk about my story on the server.  Since I know most of you dont like reading gigantic walls of text, I'm going to slim it down.

You might be asking

-WAIT WAIT WAIT WHY SHOULD I READ THIS-

Well, reading this will give you a better idea of myself. It also recalls some well known events of oasis's history. It's informative, and overall a pretty good read.

I now realise the original file in wordpad is enormous, so, I'll slim this down, like I said.
BUT FOR WHATEVER REASON YOU WANT TO HERE'S THE DETAILED VERSION:

So you're reading the detailed version. If you seriously read this entire thing you have gained my absolute respect. Still, you can opt out now, and just go to the slimmed version. But hey, your choice, not mine.

-How I joined-
I started playing on the server when my favorite 1.7.3 beta server went down due to the update. I bought minecraft mid-august 2011, and 1.8 hit mid september 2011, so i had no idea what I was doing. My friend also played on that server. Since the update hit, we'd been looking for a new server. 3 days prior to telling me about it, he found Oasis using an app on his phone. I got on skype with him and he tells me 'I found a pretty cool server. It's called oasis smp.' and I've since played. That friend was Fuzzyplats.
-1.8 Beta-
Upon joining the server in 1.8, I tagged along with Fuzzy. Being total noobs at the time, he hd built a treehouse, haphazardly made out of various blocks, which we both lived in. Around mid-1.8, I befriended a member named ijika34. He had a dinky little shop at the end of spawn path. I worked for him, and eventually fuzzy joined me. ijika got banned around a week after i met him. You'll find the ban thread on the forums, I dont feel like finding it. With him banned, I took up his shop and turned it into 'Zwall's shopping center' and others built around me. It got griefed like hell everyday. Soon, I was going to apply for member. But the ay i log on with the intention of doing so.. i was.. already.. member.. like what.. So yeah. Never applied for member.

-1.0.0 Release-
Lets see here. Not much notable in 1.0. My good friend JAMESTHEJRAGON had built a town, which i had built in. It's name was waterview. During 1.0, round january i believe, i was promoted to Trusted. Then towards the end of the update I built a town far from waterview called Zland. Made decent profit.
-1.1 Release-
During 1.1, Zland took full effect. It was a prospering town, in a remote snow biome. This was when I applied for veteran. All else I remember for this update was the.. *shiver* bedrock worldedit derp. Covered the majority of the map in bedrock. Bad times. New map. All was forgiven.
-1.2 Release-
I remember for 1.2 we had the original version rlease, then like 6 damn patches per week. Zland was not rebuilt in 1.2. Instead I found a remote plains biome and built a cabin, added a second floor with a roof made by Keshaluver21. I invited Fuzzy, who didnt really play much by now, to build near me. He did. By now, he was a Trusted+ and I was still trusted. I made friends with a player named Drunkenjedix. Dont remember exact IGN, cant find on forums. During this time I donated $20, for my birthday. Oh, this is also when Nova returned to the server. God, that was exciting, even though I have never met him before. Towards the end of the update, a great friend of mine, Croky1 generously donated $150 in 5 people's names. I was one of those people, and got bunked up to $50 donator. Thanks again for that, Croky. Onto 1.3
-1.3 Release-
During 1.3, Zland was reconstructed with help from mickdude2. We made some really nice profitting on it. Then we sold OsgaTharp a plot. Thus, the great melon war began, like that. Mick and I commanded the Melon side, Osga and Queenlucifer commanded the pumpkin. If you do slight forum research, you'll find a bunch of threads for this. This was when Mick and I were promoted to Trusted+.
-1.4 Release-
Ah, good 'ol 1.4. Probs my favorite update. At the beginning of the update ExtraSauce (lcfrasso) and I made a little experiment grounds for all the new stuff. I eventually removed all of our testing stuff and made what I call 'Skaer Manor'. Twas a big red brick and woodplank based house. First really big thing i ever built. I transformed the landscape into a kickass canyon. This is what got me Artisan during the update. I also had the idea for a 'LagFreeLounge' during this time. This was a series of building high above the ground. The idea was when you were that high up and your render is down, the ground is rendered. Eliminates lag. At promos of January 2013, I was announced as a Veteran Canidate. Sweet jesus the excitment. Keep in mind I applied a year prior. My opponents were AtractiveBanana and Mefabe. Banana ended up beating me by 1 vote. Since it was so close, and the $50Donor/Vet rule was about to take effect, killing any other chance I had, We were both promoted. I'm still greatful of that, even now.
-1.5 Release-
Hmm. 1.5. Lets see here. Beginnning of the update, I set out for new land to construct a manor. Ended up in this bigass snowbiome, and found some cool mountains. I walled them in, built a house, then thats really it. I was unhappy with the land, so Ieft it there and moved out. I eventually found a relly nice naturally walled in canyon and built there. This update is where my building really took off. I developed my own style, won buildoff a couple times, and I was overall happy. I built a town with Jawell, originally called Zkaersia, but got it changed to EtenCity.
-1.6 Release-
Not a whole lot to talk about, since we just got out of it. So, I found a nice canyon near lina's town. Built there. Made some stables. Got scared because, i mean, theres a town like right there. So, I started to look for some land to settle in. Taccy teleported my to a 'Z' mad out of cobble walls as a pun, but it was right next to a gorgeous canyon. So I settled there. Eventually i realized i left behind too much, and tried to move back, so I asked taccy to WE my house out of there. He went a bit... happy.. and made sort of a huge cavern... with water.. underground. Changed my mind once I saw this and settled there again. Made those caverns look awesome. Then I got the opporotunity to build in chairwell, and began constructing a bigass house, which is kinda against my style. But, bryce wanted a huge house.
Thats pretty much where it ends for now.

So there you go. Thats my story. This story is still getting bigger everyday, and I'm happy I got to share it with you all today. Things change, but one thing hasnt. I'm still happy, I'm having fun, and that's all the matters.
Thank you for reading.
Regards,
-Zwall

Some of this was copy pastad from the detailed version because the text wasnt too big.

SLIMMED VERSION:
-1.8 Beta-
Ah, 1.8. A friend of my Fuzzyplats introduced me to the server. He doesnt play so much anymore. I befriended a member who owned a noob shop, and when he was banned i took over. I revamped the area and deemed it 'Zwalls shopping center'. One thing I'll always remember was Jawell thinking he was 'Zwall' because our names were spelled similarly.

-1.0 Release-
Lets see here. Not much notable in 1.0. My good friend JAMESTHEJRAGON had built a town, which i had built in. It's name was waterview. During 1.0, round january i believe, i was promoted to Trusted. Then towards the end of the update I built a town far from waterview called Zland. Made decent profit.

-1.1 Release-
During 1.1, Zland took full effect. It was a prospering town, in a remote snow biome. This was when I applied for veteran. All else I remember for this update was the.. *shiver* bedrock worldedit derp. Covered the majority of the map in bedrock. Bad times. New map. All was forgiven.

-1.2 Release-
1.2. The update of the map resets. I built a normal house, and invited fuzzy to tag along. Everything went normally, until one day, an old mod 'Nova042' returned. He was a cool guy. He left again, though.

-1.3 Release-
in 1.3 Zland was rebuilt with the help of mickdude2. We made alot of profit, actually. Until the day I sold OsgaTharp a plot, and Oasis War I began. Osga commanded the pumpkin army, mick and I the melon army, and then more people made armies and shit happened.

-1.4 Release-
In 1.4 I built a manor, which got me promoted to artisan. That was pretty exciting and was where my interest in building took off. With the help of some other people I built the LagFreeLounge, which was really high, and on tiny render didnt load the ground, promoting good fps.

-1.5 Release-
1.5, i sought to recreate Skaer Manor, but failed in the first attempt in an ugly snow biome, and half succeeded in a canyon. I won a couple buildoffs, and I was really happy. Jawell and I built a town originally 'Zkaersia' but renamed it to Etencity for name spelling purposes.

-1.6 Release-
I built a house near lina town unintentionally, but she said it was okay. But the town kinda krept nearer to my house, so I decided to look for new land. Gonna sum this up very quick for times sake. I found land. Pasted house. Didnt like land. Had Taccy WE it. He went a bit happy. Outcome: Giant cavern filled with water. I invaded, settled, and I transformed it.

Thats about where it ends. Thanks for reading that, if you stuck through it.
Thanks everyone especially my broskis Captian_Renob, Jawell, Taccypoo, BiggJ39, Keshaluver21, Bandityogo, monkyboy9, Battleaxe365, woohoo_dude22, Krazo_, Duke_of_the_sea, Olive474, CaptnCupcake, AtractiveBanana, Jacopley, Kevo235, Big_Piglet, Leagle, And anyone else I missed. You know who you are.

Thank you. You made this happen.
Regards

Wow! I don't think I could remember all of what I did since I started MC. However, I am glad I read the long version. I know you better, lol. It is great that you stuck with Oasis for this long. Hope to see you on here for another two years.
