Author Topic: The things I forgot to remember  (Read 2102 times)

I'm opening the game and posting on forums today for the first time in about a decade, trying to catch up on history since I last really played this game, looking at successors, revivals and the state of the game.

I was wondering if anybody could fill the holes in my brain from when I wasn't paying attention or appreciating this game as a dumb child who should've paid better attention.

Are there any online dump archive of old saves, maps, gamemode, addons, content?

If you're looking for old OLD stuff, there's a big ol' archive here

This is great, thanks so much!
Are there any archives of maps? There were a ton of downloadable maps I'd like to revisit.
Nevermind, I'm just a dummy, they're unsorted under addons.

if youd like a primer on blockland major events/addons it would be useful to know approximately when you quit

but yeah the archive and addon sites mld posted are the best places to look for old stuff. if you are looking for old friends you could probably find info in some of the threads here or in BCC Content Creators

I probably stopped playing around 2013, MAYBE very early 2014. Every couple of years I checked back, each time I was a little more confused than the last. My return yesterday is really the first time in a decade I've really taken a closer look at the state of the game and the community, probably because it's so much smaller.

I actually joined the discords for both last night! I've been joining a few discords to see if there isn't anyone I can ask about these sorts of things and take a look at the community, see if I can recognize any old names. I was also able to contribute some to the archive, and I'm very glad I had new additions for their collection.
I also joined this "Land of Dran" discord to figure out what exactly it is, a lot of the links on threads related don't seem to work anymore.

I worked on it from sept. 2017 to jan 2018 then gave up. I started from scratch again this January, so that's why old links don't work anymore.




As an aside, you really choose the best time to stop playing. 2009-2014 was peak Blockland.

Maybe two years later I saw a streamer I liked play Blockland. At first I was excited. I saw some of the same old stuff, but I didn't really see anything interesting anymore. No new gamemodes, obviously maps were long gone, nobody was building anything cool. It was really a shame.

It does make me happy to know that I was there for the better half of Blockland's golden years. Three years of good times is pretty dang good! I still miss what I missed out on, and It's unfortunate that it went so downhill, but it makes me feel good that I was there for some of the best of times.

By the way, I joined the Land of Dran Discord server. I'm excited to see where it goes!
