But yes, if one truly wished to perform work, using that game as a modelling tool of sorts is workable enough. That was my plan, for a long while. It might even have worked if I hadn't descended into the deepest pit of over engineering I've ever seen, with autonomous administration systems running entirely on in-game computers with command blocks, machinery imitating the edge controls allowing travel between worlds dedicated to the subnet, the pcg, the subcraft maps, the pastel lands, et cetera. The possibilities, once I dragged mods into it, were endless. The worst part is I got quite far before it all succumbed to technical issues, and the growth of the underlying software made the server unable to accommodate the full scope of the project.
Ironically enough, I shut down the server I got for that purpose... Last week. Though, come to think of it, since it ran on a quarterly billing cycle, there may be a month or two left on it. I could probably set you up to use it, if you're interested. Emphasis on probably.
I don't think I'll need the server. I'll just make the map and post the download link.
The map is going to be rather large in one area, (the map designer is using WorldPainter to make a massive island), so I'm also working on transportation between key areas. I'll have some images up for that in a day, at the least.
I've also updated the album with the bells to show some progress, the most significant (in my opinion) being the lab portal statue, which is going to be a destination for another statue on an introductory island.
In terms of the transportation, I'm probably just going to use slime blocks as the detector block for a karma portal, which then teleports you to a room that represents going through the portal (purpose of the currently-all-black room in the album), and then teleport you to the other end.
