It's been a while, but with upcoming events and the turn of the new year, I think it's time for a chat.

While a lot of things have happened over 2015, this chat is mostly dedicated to the year to come. The minecraft server is dipping into a realm of quietness again, but it's not all doom and gloom. Frankly, I feel like we're approaching the beginning of a new era. This comes in the form of 7 days to die. It hasn't been hyped up a huge amount, but Guude's said there's a lot of interest in it, and going off of the form, I really hope they make something of it. What are you guys hoping for / looking forward to with the 7 days to die server? I feel like it's gonna become the new centre of mindcrack, and I'm planning on throwing myself head-first into it because if that's where the community's going, that's where I want to be.

Another major part of that to look forward to is the lore it's gonna be to the mindcrack world. We don't see as many in-game verse fics around here as we used to, but it's one of my favourite parts of the mindcrack world. And if 7d2d is a new era, then it's gonna bring new lore with it - new teams, new jokes, rew interactions. There's also the matter of us interpreting lore for the transition from the world of minecraft to 7d2d. I think it'd be fun to think about that: whether the world has transformed, or if it's a separate 'verse, or what. What kind of mechanics in the 7d2d world will become integral parts of the fics we write about it? That kinda stuff. Share your thoughts.

There's also the impending release of the big secret project that's been lingering for years. BTC may have departed, and the secret project may have a lot do with his joining of mindcrack, as rumour has it, but i'm still excited to see it finally come to fruition. What are your theories and hopes for the secret project?

What are you guys looking forward to in 2016? Both in mindcrack and real life?

I'm off to uni, but i'm hoping to throw myself head-first into fic again. I've got a bunch of ideas sitting around: mainly some aus, an idea for an agrarian skies series, and of course more survival saga. I'm hoping GOB does another series together after ragecraft 2 is completed, and I'm itching for a chevadus collab. 

And after so many people have left in the last year, do you think we're gonna get any new additions to Mindcrack this year? I'm hoping Shree gets officially signed back into Mindcrack, but no names come to mind for new people who I'd like to see join, but to be fair I don't watch much outside of Mindcrack. Who would you like to see join this year?

And how was your holiday break? Mine was good, though it's been too cold for summer down here in the summer hemisphere. I've still got another couple of months before the routine picks back up for me. Did you guys do anything exciting over the break? Is the weather actually being sensible for you?

Happy holidays and see ya around.

Well, what was BTC's expertise? Game design? I think it could be something like that, Mindcrack possibly making their own little video game, with a bunch of mindcrack Easter eggs perhaps? I don't know though, I could be WAY off, but that seems logical to me

Aaaaa, so excited for the new year, I don't know where Mindcrack is going to head, whether is be 7d2d or anywhere else, but where ever it is I'm excited.
I hope MC gets back into recording and uploading a bit more this year, I know he does so much work on Zeldathon, and he does Stream (which is very entertaining), but a nice single player LP would be entertaining.

Definitely looking forward to more streams from any of te guys as well, I'm glad more of them are starting to stream (and with Vechs' new patreon, he may be added to the list of streamers as well)

I don't know about everyone else, but I know that I, personally, will keep the 7D2D lore strictly seperate from the others.
The Minecraft world is the one that started it all and is as such the original in my book. Other games that are played by the Mindcrackers are set in a diffrent universe.
Which can be just as strong and influencial. The F1 verse had a lot of followers, as had the Grid2 one. As had the Garry's Mod verse. Probably the GTAV one too. Or Don't Starve. Or the Mario Kart one. Or 7D2D.
It's a diffrent world with it's own set of rules, it's own history and it's own logic and I want to treat it as such. Everything else would be unfair.

I'm hoping to write a lot more this year then last year. Not only for this Fandom but in general.
There are stories that I am working on that I really enjoy writing and that I wanna share, for others to enjoy.
And I wanna up the GEN counter on here a bit ;b
(And there's the idea for a series that I think holds potentioal, but is not GEN...I've not quite decided what to do with that yet other then the fact that I'll write it.)

Other then that I'm hoping to get an actual job again. Preferably one that's at such a time that I won't have to give up on watching Paks and Honneys Livestreams alltogether, but we will see.

Here's to a great 2016, everyone.

Hi! I've been lurking for a little while but just got an account. And this post made me super happy, so I wanted to thank you for that! :D

Also, I'm hoping to try my hand at writing a few fics - I'm good at academic writing, but I haven't done hardly any fiction so I'm quite excited. Any advice on how creative? I do have some fun ideas but I can't seem to flesh them out the way I want to.

Two things I'd recommend, googling it as their is a lot of suggestions and you should find something in that which helps you, second is getting feedback, not just 'this is bad' or 'this is good' but 'I liked this part because...' or 'I didn't like this part because...', which a lot of people here are willing to do so just ask. On a side note look into getting someone to check it before you post to check things over, they should give you more direct feedback and suggestions for the future
Everyone has different parts of writing that they are good at/bad at and different ways to be inspired, me I forget to write out details, that people can't see the room in my head or where people are and who is talking. When I hit a mental block taking a walk or playing a game helps clear my mind, or just leaving it till the next day.

Also hyped for new stories ^_^

Wow thank you so much! This definitely helps. :D How can I go about joining the skype chat? And I imagine that I could get a beta reader through that?

If you are ever in need of ideas, on tumblr there is a blog named "promptsalad" where Mindcrack fans submit prompts that are up for grabs for anyone to write :) And you can submit ideas you want to read, but not necessarily write. (though it hasn't been updated in a while) Here's a link:

Hope you enjoy the Salad and I can't wait to see what you write! <3

Looking forwards to the secret project reveal, though haven't the foggiest what it could be. Also looking forwards to their mini marathon and probably a proper one later in the year. Also would like new teams and colabs, possibly old teams doing new things, orange wool does other games? Anyone?
Real life I'm hyped about my own website going live inside my department, while its nothing special(Booking system for devices that can be loaned by my team to the department) it is the first I've created in my new job without someone else, which also means it's terrifying as we all know we overlook things and I wish someone on my team was willing to give it a check.
Also hoping to get back to releasing dimensions, but things arose, mostly Internet and illness, and it's on pause unfortunately. Might do other ficlets for a while? On a side note to yamina, I'm tring to work out what might happen at breakfast or in the evening drinking to continue the story, I've had several ideas but so far I haven't found one that grabbed me...
New additions to mindcrack, I'd be happy to welcome a new face, but again no ideas spring to mind.
Holiday break was good, though lacking snow and cold in the winter hemisphere, at least on this island, but I got snow on my b-day ^_^ and they've said that February will be when the winter weather hits us so excited for that, yes I'm a weirdo who likes the cold.

Can accountless lurkers be part of this conversation? Anyway, I think it's interesting that people are liking 7d2d so much. I have not gotten into it and still prefer Minecraft. If that's what the Mindcrackers are doing, though, I will probably watch it. I've been enjoying The Show's stuff (I wish they would do more Pulsar!) and regularly watch Mario Kart.
I think I may need to give 7d2d another try, considering what a large portion of the Mindcrackers are playing it now. I have watched some before and it has not interested me, but maybe if I try to learn more about the game it will be more interesting.

All in all, I will be interested to see what happens with the Mindcrackers and the salad (is that name still a thing?) in the coming year. Happy 2016!

I just saw the first video on the new 24/7 7d2d server. There's a lot of people! I may have to try watching more. (And I happened to see Guude's video about 20 minutes after he posted it...hehehe. I've never seen such a new video before.)

I think my problem is that the colors blend together much more that Minecraft, so I find it hard to tell what is what and my eyes get tired quickly. The details are also much smaller, and as I usually watch videos on my phone or possibly tablet, it's extremely hard to see a lot of things.

I'm really looking coward to the secrete project reveal, though I haven't a clue what it could be. I'm not so big on the 7d2d thing as a lot of other people, but I'm willing to give it a try. Though, might I mention Ark Survival. I think that that game has a lot of potential as well. I'm also really looking forward to Kurt's stream a day that's gonna happen. And lets not forget about the KurtJTatt initiative! Lastly Vechs' proposed face reveal! So much Hype!

Personally for myself, I want to write a whole bunch more and explore different ways of writing and different AU 's.

So um possible spoiler alert, but I believe the general consensus for the secret project is "Mindcrack Survivor". That's why they had legal issues and why BTC joined (presumable because he won). It is just speculation, but people have had comments deleted from the main reddit for talking about Mindcrack Survivor so it seems quite likely.

Whatever it is they haven't finished recording, BTC has meantioned, on occasion, that he's got to do a bit of recording for the secret project before he can delete minecraft from his machine
