Created by Baked (40609) and AlexK (3689), Misadventures On A Wrong Earth is a comedy series that spans across various locations and realities by way of a man discovering a surreal teleportation device; fueling troublesome encounters. I, on behalf of The Blockbusters productions, was involved with the creation of the second episode, and it was a riot to make.


Episode 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnXlT139wOs
I had no involvement in this one, but I recommend you should still watch it to get an understanding of the conflict. Quote "The biggest enemy of the U.S government, A̶g̶e̶n̶t̶ ̶N̶i̶n̶j̶a̶   Baked, has fled to a predetermined location with a stolen teleporter from the pentagon." A lot of the humor is similar to that of Nekram, but uses storytelling and dialogue to set up the humor.

Episode 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYOPNLkDKPg
If you liked "The Swashbucklers", you'll really like this. The crew and I spared no expense with use of events for mind-blowing action scenes. Combine that with some astonishing voice acting by Billywws (251582) as the captain, and great improvisational contributions from the whole crew (credited at the end). This is a film worth watching. To quote: "Escaping the threat from before, Baked stumbles his way to a pirate ship after finding a disc of unknown origin". The comedy in this more similar to that of Filipe1020 or Teneksi, with early 2000s videogame soundtracks, voice acting, and major usage of explosions.

General Discussion / Blockland Machinima: Halloween Special!
« on: October 30, 2020, 04:30:03 AM »
Our latest film is out, just in-time for Halloween! Done over the course of a week and three days - beginning with the conception, this film was a bit of a douse to make. There was a large crew behind this film, consisting of eight real players (with absolute minimal usage of film-bot).

Synopsis: As Halloween grows near, the owner begins to notice supernatural events unfolding at his pumpkin patch.

General Discussion / Blockland Related Wikis
« on: October 29, 2020, 03:24:38 AM »
I wanted to share some Blockland-related Wiki pages that I've both come across, and personally contributed to. I've asked some people to help me in the past, although have gotten mixed reception. I figure it's best to make an open thread about it, rather than asking person-to-person infinitely.

The Blockland Wiki: https://blockland.fandom.com/wiki/Main_Page
A Wiki page dedicated to the essential details, history and trivia of base Blockland, as well as some of its' user-base landmarks such as these very forums, or RTB. I inherited the Wiki
from the user ShockBL, and I've added quite a few pages overtime; mainly of in-game content. It's definitely in need of more contributors, and people who can source information on the chronology of Blockland's evolution.

The Blockland User Wiki: https://blocklandusers.fandom.com/wiki/Blockland_Users_Wiki
This Wiki is dedicated to immortalizing members of the Blockland user-base. In general, it seems like it needs more contributors, and possibly some moderators. I personally don't use this Wiki very much, although I get why it would exist.

The Blockland Films Wiki: https://blocklandfilms.fandom.com/wiki/Blockywood_Wiki
Also referred to as Blockywood. This is my pet project; founded with Joestacos2 and Daffytitanic. It was created to both archive and catalog everything relevant to Blockland's film making subculture. We have categories for film clans, film creators, and series so far. More contributors are definitely needed.

So what are your takes on these Wikis?
I know they're kind of a played-out format, and some have questioned the necessity of having them in general. Personally, I think there are a couple reasons documenting both the development and culture of a game like this could provide some in-sight for new players of the game who may feel a little lost when first joining. Or, it could serve as either an a inspirational or cautionary tale to indie game designers on what made Blockland so special, or where it went wrong. Also, as a Blockland film-maker myself, I see value in preserving the biographies and multi-media creations of fellow users all in one handy spot, so future users can become inspired to try their hand at creating something.

If you're interested, simply hop on, refer to the guidelines, and have fun.

Forum Games / W.I.P Halloween Film - Filming Completed!
« on: October 22, 2020, 07:39:58 PM »
In collaboration with the Blockbusters Productions film clan, I'm helping produce another film to be released by Halloween 2020. This would be the fifth film I've produced so far, and I recommend you look at my others on YouTube if you want to see my experience.

Film Description:
Synopsis: As Halloween grows near, a rancher begins to notice supernatural events unfolding at his pumpkin patch.
About The Film: The film will be roughly two minutes. We need actors to portray the pumpkin-patch-goers, supernatural entities, and the pumpkin patch owner. (Some of these background roles could be automated.)

Screenshot of the set, built by Cowtastic, Daffytitanic, Kreftos and I:


Roles: Casting closed!

Contacts:
Shoot me a PM if you're interested, I don't get too many of those so I'll have an easy time sorting your contacts out.

*Some of this information may be subject to change later on as the film develops and if ideas shift.

Happy Halloween everyone, we look forward to releasing this film.

Synopsis: The film is set in the Golden Age of Piracy, focusing on a gang of smugglers who steal a British vessel sailing the North Atlantic Sea, yet they seem to bite off more than they could chew along the way.

Gallery / Mr.Annoying's W.I.P Add-ons!
« on: June 08, 2020, 02:11:59 AM »
This is an incomplete gallery of Add-ons that I currently have semi-completed in alphabetical order:

Bicycle (Item/Vehicle)
Synopsis: A portable bicycle that the user can mount, and carry along side them when not riding.
Status: Item works, although the steering is very imperfect, riding is too bouncy, and painting doesn't work. The bicycle uses the skis as a template, and it is currently isn't any better than them - the bicycle should eventually work like how balls do - where players can only access them when unarmed. No Icon yet.


Blunderbuss/Musket (Weapon)
Synopsis: An antique rifle that shoots large ball-type projectiles, between cool-downs.
Status: Posted. https://blocklandglass.com/addons/addon.php?id=1317


Bollinger (Vehicle)
Synopsis: A two-seating SUT based on a real car.
Status: Needs lots of work, long story short. Rigged and ready to be polished.


Camel (Vehicle/Playertype)
Synopsis: A camel that the player can ride atop for quicker transportation, with sprinting.
Status: Sprinting isn't coded yet, and animations don't work (for some reason, I couldn't figure out why.)


Idiot Box (Hatmod)
Synopsis: A television that sits around your head.
Status: Some sort of critical error related to my DTS exporter has rendered it unable to be loaded into Blockland; it crashes the game everytime
.

Pterodactyl (Vehicle/Playertype)
Synopsis: A flying reptile that the player can fly when mounted.
Status: Flying is rudementary so far, the pterodactyl can only continually jump upwards with little horizontal control in air.


Stungun/Taser/Taser Gun (Weapon)
Synopsis: A less-lethal weapon that allows the user to temporarily freeze their target.
Status: Icon, sound effects and particles are mostly done, although the stunning script hasn't been implemented yet.

Forum Games / W.I.P Film - Actors Wanted!
« on: April 10, 2020, 01:55:02 AM »
As of 4/9/20, I'm working on another film for the Blockbusters clan. My last Blockland film was a recreation of a radio skit from GTA IV, filmed and edited entirely by me; watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LN5V5gq7YbM

Update: 4/15 - Casting closed.

Film Description:
Synopsis: The film is set to take place in the Golden Age of Piracy, focusing on a gang of smugglers who steal a British vessel sailing the Atlantic Sea, yet are apprehended by the British Navy, and are forced to dock in an unfamiliar setting - The Caribbean. The gang encounters a long time rival crew of Pirates, and the two duke it out; winner controls the rival crew's port.

About the Film: It's in early stages right now, and most likely could be entirely completed - sound design and post production included - by next week. I'm thinking that the film should be around 5-7 minutes long. It isn't going to be entirely dependent on historical accuracy, so we have room to tell a fantastical tale.

Take a look at the sets we have so far. Made by Cowtastic and I.


Roles: Casting closed!

Off Topic / USA Made Products Links (Updated)
« on: January 24, 2020, 03:10:46 AM »
To my fellow Americans who don't hate their country, or aren't going to to blame all economic problems and job shortages on previous/current/future presidential administrations... I have a message.

Buying domestic-made products can be a great way to strengthen the American economy and rejuvenate the depleting middle class. Manufacturing jobs provide low-skill opportunities for people nation wide, who don't really want to spend 30,000+ on a degree and fall into an inescapable deficit in order to find a decent paying job.

In an effort to help curve the ever growing problem of outsourcing, I'm compiling a list of all American made products neatly organized for your discretion. I hope you'll find your needs satisfied.

Modification Help / Melee weapon in progress, needing some pointers.
« on: November 10, 2019, 04:31:43 AM »
I have an interesting idea for a melee weapon -- a knife that can be swinged when in motion, or stabbing when still. I'm aiming to make my own model in Blender and to use animations from default weapons in Blockland. (The generic sword/hammer-fire for when its' swinging, and the spear charge and fire for the stabbing)



The model isn't complete, I'm going to give the blade a sharp taper on the front, and a curving profile.


Unfortunately, I have no solid or current experience with add-on making, as my previous attempts at guns from scratch have failed, and were lost.

Could anyone assist me? I would appreciate tips on Blender, how to source code from default items, or just some sort of template item, and maybe a guide on how to write for Blockland scripts? All forms of help, commentary, or critique is appreciated. I'm long overdue for an add-on contribution.

Suggestions & Requests / Dino Attack T-rex Request
« on: September 01, 2019, 10:26:06 PM »
Could someone make a simplistic playertype based off of the 2005 Lego Dino Attack T-Rex, but with a style reminiscent of the default horse?






Here's an example of how drastic the changes between Lego and Blockland's horses are:

Suggestions & Requests / Searching for Yndaaa's Dino Playertype
« on: August 24, 2019, 10:28:38 PM »
On Febuary 1st, 2011, the YouTube video "The Land Before Lyme Disease" was put up by godzillahr to promote Yndaaa's Dinosaur playertype.




Here's the video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61STYjbD6Hk&list=UUi2dDcnKGnYnoTZLNfvcUKQ&index=7

Despite surfing google, I haven't had much luck finding any remnants of this add-on.
Would anyone somewhere happen to have this add-on saved, or know where its' uploaded?



Update: With help from Masterlegodude, The model has been found, but the script is not perfected.
