Test World, Finished!

I finally finished my "Test World" For myself and my fans to use.

It's a completely blank open area with a bunker to a huge store room full of any items you need to build and test stuff out with. It'll be great for my Tutorials and testing out new ideas, while also being great for my fans to use for the same reasons.

I have just about -everything- you need in the chests. Unbreakable Tools/Armor, All items are Stacks to 255.

Also items are also labeled now, thanks to the update from notch so you should beable to tell what everything is.

After putting on the armor you -can't- die. To reset your health and make yourself killable, just eat one of the apples in one of the chests.

Nothing is really organized or labeled so you have to look around, if anyone feels like doing that for me I'd be grateful.

Dual commentary?

I've met and talked to another Minecraft commentator on youtube named "MyselfOverwhelmed" and I like his video's, pretty interesting and he's alot like me in the way that he loves to be a part of his fans.

We've been talking alot and we may try starting a small SMP world(With just us for now) and start building together and doing a dual LP episode atleast once a week.

Cow Prints

I've been working really hard lately on plans for my statue since all of my fans seem to want to see it so much.

Here's some of the things I have done so far.

Reference Picture.

Cow Body: Right Side

Cow Body: Left Side

Cow Body: Belly

Cow Body: Back

I'll update the post as soon as I finish more. Also I was originally against hacking the mats in but after reviewing the material cost...well, look below and you'll see why I'm reconsidering.

Total Material cost so far
Cloth: 1240
Obsidian: 1717

Gathering all of those is possible...but it'd take many, many hours and mean less video's in the long run.

Also, I've been putting a ton of work into this, I've had to redo the body 2-3 times already because it didn't fit right.

New secret project in the works!

I've been putting a bit of time and effort (All night, actually) into making a special video for my fans. I don't have much right now and i'm not sure if all of you will like it or not but It's something I really wanted to do and so far have been having alot of run making it. I -plan- on posting it before the end of the week but we'll see what happens.

Also on a side note, as stated before I could use more funds to help fix my computer up more and while donations are very much appreciated I don't want to keep asking for them, I hate to feel greedy.

On the other hand, I would appreciate it if any of you could help me find a way to obtain the funds myself, So far i've tried ad-sense and making my own toolbar, which has helped but the profits are small. So I need help finding other ways to help get a slightly larger income. I was thinking of putting adds on my youtube channel but to be honest I have no idea how to do that. I also thought about applying for a partnership with youtube but I highly doubt they' accept me either.

So in short, if you could help me find a way to get funds on my own I would really appreciate it!

Also! if you have donated, please send me a PM on youtube with your email and the amount you donated(so I can confirm its you) and I'll give you a shout-out in my video's.

More computer problems.

I found out what the problem is with my computer, I have no idea why but the motherboard is.."backwards"? Which I mentioned in my last post. Its built really weird and while my new graphics card would of fit on a normal computer it just doesn't fit my motherboard. I can't really figure out why my motherboard is designed like this, considering I've looked up a few dozen other boards and -none- of them are designed like mine.

Here's a picture of the inside of my computer. (Sad I know)

Here's what a motherboard -should- look like.

The difference is subtle till you realize it makes a huge difference.

In short! I either have to return my new graphics card which will take at -least- 1-2 weeks before I even get my money back, plus they'll charge me a "restocking fee" of 20 bucks....Then order another, cheaper yet crappier one that -will- work with my computer, and likely give me problems in the future.

OR I can spend about 300 more dollars getting a new motherboard(one that isn't backwards), processor, and bigger casing(because mine is pretty small) -just- so I don't have the same problems in the future.

Either way I fee like i'm screwed and I may have to get a full time job(or two) just to pay for it all.

Good news/Bad news

Thanks to donations from my fans(One in particular being Dentist73548 for being my top donator) I finally managed to order my graphics card and it just got here today!

The bad news...Is that it simply won't fit in my mother board. I made sure to do some research and ask a few tech savvy friends and one even suggested the card I ordered..But the way my computer is made isn't fit to hold cards like that. Here's a topic I posted on a tech-help site with a few details.

Two more pieces of good news, though. I hear newegg has great return polices but it may take a while to return it and get refunded, then I have to find a new card that works with my computer and actually fits.

Also, my new contest video should be up soon, The winner is "BloodySoap" not his youtube name but its the name he wanted me to shout-out.
