Ugh. In that case, how about this:

http://1drv.ms/1P4vkGa

That's a zip file containing the last backup (from June), including the "orbiterworld", "super-survival world", "resource world", and their associated nethers/ends. Should be fairly trivial for someone who knows what they're doing to drop the worlds into their own server or singleplayer instance and browse around, or extract things for their own usage in another world.

Let me know if there are any issues.

I started playing in 2010 around around the first or second alpha release. I haven't had the interest to play since around late 2012. Not sure why, but it just wore thin after a few years.

The novelty has indeed kind of worn off, particularly with all the other games around now that are in the same "sandbox survival" genre, often with better graphics.

Almost 4 years later...



In a bout of nostalgia i've been yanking chunks out of the server's backup and converting them into modern Minecraft's format.

I've made a couple of maps, at one pixel per block.
The overworld, 22Mb - http://orbides.org/img/ofms_map_over.png

A slice of the nether, 0.4 Mb. It's very 3D, so this does not tell much - http://orbides.org/img/ofms_map_nether.png

Someone left a message in front of Delta Crateris, almost as if expecting that to happen. :/

This prompted me to yank out the Watchtower and check the headlines:




The offer of gold for dirt is no longer valid - the Gold Pillar stopped working in modern versions, as spawn mechanics changed.


There is so much stuff in there, scattered all over the place.
Yanked an island at random, and there is a port and a house with a moat of fire.


Another mansion, vaguely familiar.


A shuttle hangar in the desert, naturally. :/


No idea where else to look.
Initially i just wanted to export my own builds, but now i wonder if there is anything worthwhile to be done with all that time and effort people placed into this game.

Found the little area that I was working in on the map.

Good times.

Oh, wow. Looks like that all ended before I ever started playing Minecraft...

Wow. That is so weird. Out of the blue, for no reason, I was just thinking about this server over the weekend. Remembering some of the underground mines I'd found while exploring in, I think, the southwest part of the map, and working on building a railway in the Nether to connect it all to the main settlement.

Just amazing to me that you picked within a few days of me having that though to post this.


**Edit** Any chance you could post the backup, Artlav? Hielor's old link doesn't seem to be functional any longer.

Thanks,
2VU

Well, it's an 8 year old game and it's days of popularity were back in 2012-2014.

Not any time soon - it's a multi-Gb file and i'm on mobile till the end of the week at least.

Not even sure i can host a file that large, so i'll have to figure out Dropbox or something.

Nope. I only seem to have the world before that one.

Not a big deal, just thought it would be neat to have, for the nostalgia. There's a chance I downloaded it somewhere. I'll check all my storage media later tonight and see if I can find it.
