    Hello guis I haven't actually been active enough to know who still roams these forums and who doesnt, so i'm just going to quickly reintroduce myself to those who don't know me (For those who do, skip over the Verdana font) My name is Cade, many know me as TheTanJames or CaZaKoJa, the creator of the R E A L I T Y series (which is a bit of a curse in many ways lmao). I've been animating since the MI 0.4 days, and I was one of the founding members of a failed team called Amination Squad which included myself and many other close friends of mine (SKIBBZ, Vash0110, UpgradedMoon, Fosni, Cryotivity etc.) Of this group of friends, i'm currently the only one still making Mine-imator animations (aside from Moon who uses it sparsely for intros and whatnot). I've been inactive for quite some time and this post is just explaining why I was and what is going to be happening. Now many of the people who have kept in touch with me and my channel know that I have a very nasty pattern of saying i'm making progress then going totally inactive for many months. This is mainly due to my graduated life. Currently, I still live with my parents as I'm trying to find some stable work in the film industry but in exchange I pay them 800$ a month for room and board (i'm basically paying rent) I have 2 jobs, looking for a 3rd, and tried getting into film school before backing out after realizing its a terrible investment. The past year has been pretty hectic. July of 2017 I got a girlfriend and we spent about 80% of our time together and lasted 10 months before I broke up with her due to incompatible traits (that had bothered me for 4 months). I spend most of my time attempting to build a portfolio for film, spending time with my family and friends and occasionally playing a video game to relax. Being 100% honest, I've had a lot of time to spare for animating, my only issue is the rate at which I can actually focus on it and get stuff done that's good. Attempting to finish Concept 6 is a large hurdle for me since I've been stumped on the same location for quite some time with little to no idea of how to get forward. (I know how the rest of it is going to play out, its the 15 seconds between where I am and where the scene continues that I don't know how to fill in). Animating has always been a bit of a hobby more than a career to me, and practising filmmaking only hardened that idea more. So in the process, I've kind of killed my skill for animation altogether, which sucks because I'm not cancelling Reality by any means (since I have a promise from beyond the grave resting on it) But it makes it much harder to continue. Basically what this post is trying to say, is mainly sorry to anyone who's wondered what's going on and has been pretty damn patient with my lack of effort in the channel. Concept 6 is without a doubt the biggest one yet as I'm doing my best to prioritize my imagination over the animation (which has previously been reversed, I used to adapt ideas to my skills, now I'm going to try and push myself immensely). The quality of it should mimic, if not exceed that of the 5th one and the time should clock in at about 15+ minutes. typically each concept is split into 3 acts, 1. A Beginning village sequence (Averaging about 1:30) 2. A fight sequence in the dream (Averaging about 4+ minutes) 3. An ending village sequence (averaging about 1:30) Concept 6 is much longer in a different sense, based on each song/soundtrack I use, the length of each act is as follows, 1. 5:30 2. 4:30 3. 5:00 So yeah, it's long. The reason for its length is because this Concept is the last one to be a standalone episode. The rest of them are released together along with remastered concepts 1 - 6. Essentially, concept 6 is a finale to the series, and then 7, 8 and 9 are the GRAND finales to the story in general. Think of them as free EA expansions that actually have to do with the main story. So anyways that's all I really have to say. Now excuse me while I go play Spiderman PS4. See ya Pals

    So after dropping this project so many times before, i decided to finally finish it, so here is the updated version of the "Hyperspace Asteroids" clip from a few months back! it isnt much but this stuff takes time. Remember that this stuff takes time, and is most likely going to change over time (cockpit will be rigged in the final product)

    Hello! Long, boring, tedious, repetitive story short, I modded custom banners into Mine-imator. With this mod you can add up to 6 patterns to a banner, as in Minecraft! Here's something that's supposed to resemble a nether portal. One thing you should know is you must add the color manually. Originally, You would be able to change each patterns color in the banner options but... The installation and using instructions are in the downloaded folder. If you use it you can credit me but I don't really care if you do or not. DOWNLOAD Bai!

    Okay, there's some stupid stuff going on between Swift and 9redwoods and I just want to hopefully put an end to it, since people have been mentioning me and wanting me to be apart of it. Take it as you will, this is all I'm going to say on the matter, and I'm going to stay mostly neutral. Yes, neutral. Anything I say here should not be taken as a personal offense, because everyone is at fault and it can be fixed. I'm going to explain everything either side is doing completely wrong and why this feud still exists. I'm telling you all this so you can understand where the problem lies, and so that we can fix this together. At this point it should be us against the problem, not us against each other. First off, Redwoods and his pals. @9redwoods, you're a huge hypocrite. You tell Swift and Karyu to stop downvoting everything you say, and that the rep button should be used for things you agree or disagree with. But you do the exact same thing. You downvote what they say for the same reason they downvote you, because neither of you agree with each other. What both sides need to understand is that everyone is doing something wrong and everyone thinks they're right. You, Redwoods, don't take criticism well at all, and it rubs off on the criticism you give to other people. You have a fundamental misunderstanding of criticism and wallpaper-making in general and act like your way is the only sure-fire way to do anything. You give people advice that not even you follow in your own wallpapers, namely the whole camera angle thing. You seem insistent that placing it lower and facing up is the only way to make any wallpaper, since you comment that on every wallpaper ever. That is not how criticism works. That is terrible advice. The camera is meant to bring attention to certain areas of the wallpaper, and to possibly make it more exciting. Which means it's very conditional, every wallpaper is different. There is no one way to make a wallpaper, otherwise every wallpaper would suck. And when people call you out on this aspect, your two excuses are used interchangeably. One says "that's how I've always done my criticism" and one says "I've changed, I used to give that kind of criticism and now I don't". Which are complete polar opposites. Make up your mind or come up with a better excuse, because that's the reason no one falls for that bullshit. It feels like you don't actually know what people are telling you is bad, or just don't want to, so let me spell it out for you. You give bad criticism because you have a very strict and actually incorrect standard of wallpapers. There is a difference between short and blunt criticism and just not giving a shit. You're extremely unapologetic as well. You don't care that people don't like what you say because "that's just how you've always been". People get mad at your criticism because it doesn't actually help the creator of the wallpaper. Sure, it's not rude or anything, but it tries to get a mindset into the creator that we don't want them to have, which is that everything has to be a certain way, your way. And also that their work can only be improved if they do it the way you would do it. It's so frustrating to people because they know there's a problem, they just don't know how to call you out on it, and that's why you get so defensive when it's mentioned. Then, of course, there's the rep circle. No matter how much the little rep circle over here can downvote yours, your circle with MikTRF and all those guys will always be enough to boost you back up. In that regard, we're all at fault, so it's best if we all just calm down and recognize that the digital down-arrow is pointless to the person we're fighting against, on BOTH SIDES. Let me repeat myself, BOTH WE AND YOU ARE AT FAULT. The rep circle argument is really stupid and I hope everyone reading recognizes that, because Redwoods could easily turn around and say the same thing about Foreign Affairs. Listen, rep circles aren't an inherently bad thing. Most of the time we don't even notice they exist, as with Redwoods right now. But they can also be weaponized, and that's when it becomes rep abuse. Soon enough, the upvote circle becomes a defensive downvote circle, hurting others while boosting itself. That sounds dramatic and yeah, it's stupid. But that's how it works. And it works. ___________________________________________________ Alright, now @Swift. Just like I said before Redwoods's, don't take this as a personal offense. I'm just stating my opinion on the current situation, everything can be fixed. Swift, I agree with you on a lot of the stuff you've said, but there are problems aside from your opinions on the matter. There is a point where it's healthier to just ignore them. And I know you've heard that a thousand times, so I'm going to elaborate. Clearly, the methods you've been using to argue against him are not getting to him at all. He's a lost cause, so I would just leave it. Don't give him the attention. If you downvote him, he accuses you of rep abuse. If you reply to him, he thinks it's blind hate. If you bring it to DMs or even Discord, it all ends with a plain misunderstanding of the other side's opinion, so there's honestly nothing else to do. And I know Redwoods is probably like "Yes, just leave it alone, Swift! It happened a long time ago so just leave it alone!" But Redwoods, you're guilty of the same thing. The same exact thing, actually. Redwoods, you are no better than Swift and Swift, you are no better than Redwoods in that regard. That part's on both of you. And then there's the part where Redwoods and MikTRF downvote anything you and Karyu say, regardless of whether or not it's meant to hurt them. Yes, that is a valid thing to be concerned about. However, you need to remember that they think you do the exact same thing, which you might. There's no way to argue against it because they can argue the same points towards you and have just as little meaning. So, at that point, I would just report them and try not to stoop to their level. Revenge rep is never a good thing for anyone, because then you can't actually get someone punished for rep abuse because you're guilty of the same thing by definition. So stay level-headed, keep your head up, and let mods know about it without doing it yourself. It's a really easy pit to dig into, so don't let yourself fall into it. Because if there is actually something bad going on, the mods won't do anything about it if everyone involved is guilty of something. ___________________________________________________ Long story short, everyone is at fault for something, so it's best to be able to recognize your own problems, so you can avoid them in the future and let the mods handle anyone who isn't able to do so. Both of you. Don't think that just because I'm calling the other person out that you're not at fault for the same thing, that's a really easy mindset to get into. Redwoods, you are at fault. Swift, you are at fault. Mik and Karyu are at fault too. That's my opinion, stop messaging me.

    You guys should be a bit more kind, this type of response is really just gonna demotivate people instead of them taking it as a joke, especially for newcomers.

    Road pack V1

    hey Here's the road pack V1! Include: -small, medium and large 2 lines road -small, medium and large 1 line road -a texture loader (when you import it to your project, it will load all the road textures) here's what you can do with the roads: If you want to make turns of slopes, you have to bend the road: -use the X bend to make a slope -use the Z bend to make a turn Some tips: -a texture with "V2" on his name means that it's a road with 2 lines (but in french, we say "voies" instead, so that's why I putted "V2" or "V1". It will be fixed in the next version) -the road is too thick to make a bridge? don't worry, just change the Z scale! but if you do that, you won't be able to make slopes Download it by clicking on that happy face: :D What I planned to add in the V2: -3 lines road -more road textures -signs and city stuff (such as traffic light or pedestrian crossing, for example)
