Grab your popcorn and your recliner chairs, because this time around you guys will be watching me play Penumbra: Overture! That's right, all you have to do is sit back and watch me cry like a little girl as I run away from the simplest of objects!

If you do not know what Penumbra is, or who made it, here is a link to the website.

Penumbra is a horror first person survival/puzzle game that focuses on an amazing story line. The way that is utilizes the horror aspects is that you are basically defenseless. You can either run or hide. Or you could die and try the other option.

Here is a quick trailer,



Here is the link to my live stream channel.

I hope you all will come and watch me scream like a little girl!
After a very, very long time of service to our community, MindCrafty is being honorably demoted from Head Controller due to inactivity. We understand he is currently very busy, and unable to dedicate the amount of time needed.

We thank him for his service to Blocktopia, and wish him the best of luck in his future affairs.

Regarding a replacement, we hope to have the situation handled by Friday, in time for the meeting.

Head Controllers need to read PMs and respond to them. Explicitly one sent 2 weeks ago.
Big global news is big--I mean--soon.

Notch has kept GMK busy! Every fucking day for our lovely asshat has been doing server stuff, so give your good appreciations to Notch. Otherwise GMK is awesome. Also GMK is away from now until Sept 27.​

Attention all survivors,

We will be playing Zombie Panic! Source this Friday, right after the meeting! For those of you that are wondering, what is this game? Does it require anything to play? Is it free?

Zombie Panic! is a Half Life mod that pits man against the undead and supports multiplayer maps! It is a zombie survival game quite similar to L4D2, except this game supports much more than four people per map!

This video better explains the game,



Here are the system requirements,

System requirements
Minimum: 1.7 GHz Processor, 512MB RAM, DirectX 8 level Graphics Card, Windows Vista/XP/2000, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection
Recommended: Pentium 4 processor (3.0GHz, or better), 1GB RAM, DirectX 9 level Graphics Card, Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000, Mouse, Keyboard, Internet Connection

This is a Half Life mod, you will need any Source game. If you already have a Source game, this mod is free. We will be hosting our own server most likely and the server information will be given out during the meeting.

Here is the download link, and here is the mod's website!

I hope to see all surviving members present!
MC Beta 1.8 has now been officially released. Expect a few more bugfix releases, as usual ;)

For those people playing on our CMP and SMP servers, read this:

and this:

http://blocktopia.net/forum/threads/what-will-happen-when-1-8-hits-us.1057/page-3#post-21630

I will say it once more:

Due to the enormity of changes in this version update, we will stick with temporary vanilla servers for a while. Stay tuned for further announcements how we will proceed within the next few days.

All others - enjoy the 1.8 Beta!

For our next event, which for those of you that don't know is literally right after the meeting, we will be doing a karaoke night!

We will have our own bots for music, just send the respectable person your requests! We will have solos, duets, and group songs! Don't be shy, you may think other people will mock you but you should consider this, everyone will be busy mocking me and my terrible singing skills!

So step up and sing your heart, you won't be the only one!

We will have well known songs played and if you need lyrics, just ask!

Sorry for the late post, but we will have a great time!

Good luck and see you there!
Hello. This is becoming a larger issue then I anticipated, so let me put out a global announcement notification about this.

If you use 1 computer to access multiple forum accounts (For example, friends visit you, you have family, etc) certain head staff will get notified. Keep in mind, this is 1 computer, not 1 internet connection. (We have checks for that too.)

Also, one of the accounts gets locked.

The reason for this is because the registration of multiple accounts has caused us problems in the past, and we don't want that to happen again.

If the account gets locked, the alternate associated account will usually get a message within 24 hours from head staff, asking the reason for the computer sharing, or giving a notification of this process. If the reply is acceptable (and it usually is, to be fair) we re-validate the locked account. If both accounts are of known family, or players I tend to know personally, they can get unlocked without a message being sent.

if you DO NOT reply, the locked account DOES NOT get unlocked. Making new accounts means each subsequent account made gets locked too.

It is not our responsibility to take care of your account. If you log in on your brother's / sister's / friend's computer, and your or their account is locked, and we message one of you, it is YOUR job to pass that message along to your friend and to reply to that message.

Also, if it ends up happening 6 times, you need to stop sharing your computer, because it's getting quite tiresome to see the same names pop up EVERY single time.

In short, unless you're family, try to avoid sharing a computer for forum access. It's not against the rules, but it does inconvenience you, for getting your account locked, and makes us do more work.

Do not backseat operate (minimoderate) whilst an operator is on. So don't remind people of rules - thats the job of the staff.

It's back once again! This time, we shall be playing TF2 again!

We'll have a choice of a few game modes, which I would like all of you to choose for us!

Once again, this is your prime opportunity to blow up some Head Staff, and let's be frank, who doesn't want to‽

Team Fortress 2 is now a free-to-play game, provided to you by Valve! If you do not have Steam, or TF2, I highly suggest that you download it and join us!

Here is a video of my favorite class, The Sniper,



Here is a link to the Team Fortress 2 website for all your TF2 needs, and here is the download link.

See you on the battlefield!
