New Logo and Merch

This is the new logo for MrWonka. It replaces the former top hat logo I used for the website. It also now acts as the logo for our Discord and Steam group. I’ve replaced the top hat because it was a public domain image, and I wanted something that would be more specific to me.

The logo is representative of a few things to me, more obviously, the MW stands for MrWonka, and the colors, gray and purple, are representative of Willy Wonka. The placement of the letters draws a line upward, pointing to a better future. The M and W are actually the same character (the M is an upside down W), showing how we are more alike than different. The overlapping (the light blue streak) shows how together we can make something new.

ALSO I NOW HAVE MERCH. And its on sale too! Use the code 2021 for 10% off. (This ends in 2 weeks!)

I’ve created a new graphic design using the overview image of the FunLand themepark, with some tacky info for good measure. Now you too can become a walking advertisement! I also have the MW design available as a small logo on a shirt.

A very Covid Christmas

The title was too easy of a joke to not make.

As this dumpster fire of a year comes to a close, I wanted to give y’all some wishes and updates. Firstly, I’m so proud of how this community has handled this year’s hardships. We didn’t fall apart, resort to name calling, flame wars, or bigotry, despite what has happened in our community and in the real world. My wish is that this will continue as our virtual family grows, and that all of you will stay safe and healthy in real life.

So, here’s the big news, regarding the future ownership of ImagineMC. If you haven’t already, read this post about my stepping down. I want to re-iterate that I’m not quitting Minecraft all together. I’ll likely continue working on projects now and again. So, the new owners will be Nintendo_Male and stanthesand! Nintendo_Male has generously provided to host the server after March, and stanthesand will be acting as co-owner. Nintendo_Male already has experience running a server, and we have successfully ran a test server. They also plan to bring back the much requested creative.

For this December, I’ll likely be publishing a relatively simpler video (Compared to the releases of Polar Expresses of years past) on YouTube. I also plan on uploading some more tracks to the LAST channel.

Finally, I’m thinking about making some designs to possibly use for merch. I’m thinking about making a VISIT FUNLAND design using a dynmap overhead view of the park. I’ll post the design to Discord once I’ve got a draft made.

The LAST Project

It’s here! It’s weird! It’s free from fear! (alliteration is hard okay?) Its the Lost Audio Storage Trust! This is a new YouTube channel that is completely about audio. In the past, I’ve uploaded “lost” audio, however most subscribers didn’t appreciate it. It’s not a surprise that people that like original creations may not be interested in niche audio.

So that’s where the LAST channel comes in! It’s a celebration of audio that was never wildly released, available now on YouTube in higher quality than anywhere else! This is completely a passion project, as I don’t make revenue from these videos, and expect them to all be claimed (which they should, since I didn’t make the audio).

The logo went through 3 revisions. It is designed to look like a 🎵 and a ❓

Here’s the first 3 tracks:

I have a number of uncompressed Club Penguin tracks that I’ll be releasing in the following days.

Who ya gonna call?

Even though we are all stuck indoors, this Halloween is gonna be big.

My apartment room’s porch

Jurassic World has a new Halloween overlay. Not only have the dinosaurs from Predator Cove escaped, they’ve destroyed the park and eaten guests, staff, and even other dinosaurs! This overlay is a limited time event until early November.

After over a year in production, we are finally ready to premier our latest ride, GhostBusters: Phantom Blast! This interactive dark ride features scenes and audio from every GhostBusters movie, and the video game. The ending changes based on how many ghouls you can take down. This attraction will be opening later this week, and will be a permanent addition to FunLand

Lastly, Jack Skellington has overtaken the Haunted Mansion! This overlay of the classic attraction is inspired by the DisneyLand overlay of the same theme. It will be opening later this month, and will be a limited time offering

Finally, I wanted to make an update about the future ImagineMC Server ownership situation. We have found 3 interested parties, with one being able to host when the time comes, so you can get out from under your doomsday-proofed-desks.

The future of ImagineMC and YOU!

YOU! YES YOU! READING THIS! Do you like ImagineMC and want to help it keep running? Then I’ve got an opportunity for you!

I’ve been the sole owner and operator for ImagineMC for over six years. However over this time I’ve become tired of Minecraft, and the endless updating and fixing involved, not to say anything of how much money I’ve poured into it. I’m not definitively saying I’m quitting Minecraft forever, but that I do not wish to carry the burden of the server any longer. (I’ve done a great job of selling it so far haven’t I?) That being said, running it has been very rewarding, and allowed me to meet many great people I wouldn’t have otherwise.

Here’s where you come in

I know the server means a lot to a lot of people, and I’m no longer opposed to someone else taking over. SO. You have the opportunity to host the server! What this means is:

  • You get to work with the fantastic ImagineMC build team
  • You/your team would be responsible for maintaining, updating, and running the server, including hosting
  • You would get to keep using the ImagineMC.org domain FOR FREE
  • You receive all the server files, including worlds and plugins
  • You could add survival, creative, or skyblock

I know this is a lot to ask. The new host would have to choose a hosting solution, work with the files, and pay for applicable hosting expenses (except for the domain, which I’ll provide). In return, I’ll do my best to help get everything off the ground, but beyond that your free to do whatever you want, so long as your not going through and deleting everything in mass.

I will provide hosting until March
