Minecraft World and Quest Building

 

Grades 7-12 or by permission. Summer camps, 1 to 2 hour multi-day classes, and 1-day workshops. Inquire about online options.


The concept for Robotics And Beyond’s Minecraft OASIS originated from the virtual reality world OASIS that was the backdrop in the book and movie Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline. This is a long-term project that we expect to last for several years.

 

The OASIS is stored on an AWS (Amazon Web Server).

 

Participants can choose from three roles.

 

1. Server software, permissions and other “back-end” functions

2. Design and building of worlds, structures and properties

3. Strategies and prizes for quests and games

 

Our OASIS universe consists of 27 square “sectors” arranged like a Rubik’s Cube. Each sector will eventually contain a number of planets. Our plan is to create a large-scale game with the following features.

 

- Non-combat and PVP (player vs. player) worlds or regions
- Private properties to be bought by players and developed as they desire
- Quests and other games where players can earn credits and artifacts or special abilities
- Teleportation between places on a world and between worlds
- Frequent references to names, places, games, music and movies that were part of the book Ready Player One
- A set of governing rules

 

The first class will introduce the concept of the OASIS, how it is hosted, discuss the overall design, choose roles for each student and begin working. The remaining classes will focus on designing and finishing quests and games so they are fully operational. Team members will be allowed to work on the project between classes during limited hours. Collaboration and discussion between team members will be essential and is an important goal for the project.

 

Requirements:

 

- A deep interest in Minecraft world building or the design of strategic quests and game plots and stories within the worlds.
- Ability to work as part of a team, collaborate respectfully, proper online conduct, and follow through on responsibilities for your effort on the project.
