    Hi, just dropping by to ask some old players here if they remember any old town names back in 2011. (1st/2nd map?) I'm currently writing a story purely based on the time I spent in the server since so many very interesting things happened back then. It won't be told in minecraft setting (mostly) but as a fantasy/medieval setting.
    So, I need help remembering the town names back then, any name that you remember would be appreciated if you remember the mayor's name the better!
    I posted in a another thread about this but I deleted the post. I'm doing this because I picked up blogging and creative story-telling as a hobby (just one/two of my many hobbies). (and also 5 year anniversary is coming even though I don't play anymore.)
    Some town names I remember:
    Avalon
    Stalingrad
    Mikecraft
    Valhalla (My town)
    Fjordheim
    Tacoville (I just can't not remember this)
    Dracore (the citadel thing)
    Gaia (My first town, the first chapters will take place here)
    Belial (best underground town)

    Those are the towns I can list off the top of my head. Anyone that can remember some other town names would be great.
    I will only post the story on request without linking my site. It will be sort of a web novel.
    Thanks, have a nice day.

    That's the last map, which is 2014. Rovince specifically asked for town names from the 2011 map, which unfortunately we do not have in any threads that I can see, even the Cartography ones. The only other option is to go through old threads from 2011 and see if people mention town names.

    Many thanks,
    Seph

    Yes, I've tried looking for threads, and only found a few of them (like Belial). Still looking for more though. Thanks! It's too bad that the old oldest cartography had its image 404'd.
    EDIT: Found a few more while browsing through hundreds of threads.
    I'm pretty sure I've forgotten some more, if so, please tell me. :)

    Old cartography thread by Hiddetjuh was for 2012 map (Age of BuenaVista).

    Seeing Fjordheim and Dracore on the list means that we need to dig through memories of 2011 map (Age of Avalon):

    Bonobo - smcallah and FrauDummkopf's town.
    Vienna - i believe that it was the town where Versh met with Deer an others. I also remember that Avalon was larger but Vienna had more residents (or the most of that map? definitely over 300).
    BuenaVista - my first town, some may also remember MoistPeppers, CTTheSchism, Strydier, Mr_Sterling, Bilko100, MoonLamb. We were growing slow and steady, for our glory getting ready :)
    Kingslanding - near BuenaVista, nice medieval castle. Idk the mayor though.
    Wraught - festeringskull ruled Wraught, Eudynies ruled Fester :)
    Orange - who remembers Shoe1?
    Oakdale - Eltono999 always claims its the oldest continuous town on the server, despite being deleted for debts several times, most recently few weeks ago :)
    Doverville - led by diddover, former ImDeity Classic server operator.

    When did Delos start?
    Was Sealab a town on 2011 map? I remember seeing the name at least.
    Will VVenaya's ring rail take part in the story?
    What about Riverside, Icarus, CubeTopia?

    *raises hand* Some old times those were, the pixel orange.

    Do not forget the town called Bacon led by MEGABUSH. I was a resident of the town together with Hiddetjuh.

    There was a Crystalgard at the end of the 2012 map, but sadly not on the 2011 one, i had barely even gotten settled here at that point, only joined in october 2011

    I like how Barry quoted 2012 as the Age of Buena-vista xD it is catchy. So have all subsequent years been "Ages of Doha"? lol

    Oh how i would love to go back to the beginning of the 2011 map, and arrive when that map was new and fresh xD i arrived fashionably late okay?

    (Sorry for offtopic, RovincE.)
    Heinz, i branded every map with the name of the town that was significant with that typical development curve of rise and fall.

    2011 map: The Age of Avalon: The largest and completely dead inactive town when i joined the server some 2 months before the map reset.
    2012 map: The Age of BuenaVista: Started with 15+ assistants covering 24/7 service and ended losing 1k daily in taxes, only saved from deleting for debts by the map reset.
    2013-2014 map: The Age of Doha: From "Yogs has Dei" to unclaiming over 3000 plots just to keep some Dei in town bank. Survived, but didn't prosper in the end.
    2015-2016 map: The Age of Skyhold. Expectations and mature staff helped to fuel the start but it slowly turned into an expensive landmark.

    Thanks! I remember joining Orange and doing odd jobs for BuenaVista with my ridiculously high herbalism skill (knew many exploits in McMMO back then lol.)
    Sea lab was indeed in 2011.
    VV's Rail lines will have a big part in the story since I used it so much to travel around the world.
    I slightly remember riverside.
    Icarus, Aceryce's town?, was a huge obsidian deposite that I sometimes use :p
    I had an embassy plot in Cubetopia back then and it was one of the most beautiful towns back then with all the builds and arts especially their huge world tree. They also had statues of Imdeity and VV. The mayor was nathanmanly if I remember correctly.
    I also remember going around Oakdale reporting griefs when eltono wasn't around.
    I think most if not all towns hired me or I helped them doing something building or towny related.
    I took in my town The_Yogs when he first joined the server, and I remember attending an in-game wedding of him and laurie1000, lmao. (http://imdeity.com/threads/laurie-and-yogs-wedding.1115/)

    During the Age of Avalon, Stalingrad and Dracore were the biggest rivals of Avalon going toe-to-toe with the number of members. Though I remember Avalon being bigger in terms of area, Stalingrad still had more members. Dracore being always 3rd in the top towns list in the chat most of the time. Valhalla, my town, which I made near Stalingrad, also made it the biggest towns list a month after I started it. Gaia, my first town, was also one of the big towns managed by Leviathan_ziz when sleepingcap became inactive.

    Does anyone remember the mines of moria that vv made? It was unprotected and I remember chipping off a sizable amount of glowstone where it wasn't too obvious. (BAN ME)

    Also, glass carpets, anyone?

    All of the things mentioned above will be included in the stories. Might take me some time to cover all of them though!

    Do you remember strawberries?

    I think it is also VV's for catching griefers :)

    Yes, of course, the honeypot trap.
    I'm still thinking of a way to represent admins/mods with their powers without going too meta.

    Yep, thanks for telling. I remember this town now.

    Whoopsies, will start again next map.

    Also my best memory of Avalon was whoever owned the big shop in the capital, with Avalon spelled in blue wool on the wall of it. I bought pretty much everything from them, probably funding an entire district.

    There was a town named Vodka for a time run by Mojinax ;) . It was very insignificant on the 2012 map, and had a "communist" government.

    Why has no-one mentioned the medieval town with the biggest (at least prettiest) farm ever? Gaia!
    And the Gaia outpost "Kingdom"; ran by yours truly :D
