Hello Everyone! Welcome to the very first StompzCraft Weekly Update! These blogs are little bits of information given to you every Friday night regarding the server... even though it is technically Sunday night as this is being written. Things such as featured builds, town shout outs, and sneak peeks to projects being worked on in the background will all be included, and much, much more! But, first things first... an apology.
I guess to start off, on behalf of everyone still somewhat around on the technical, behind-the-scenes sort of thing... we're sorry. We promised a lot of grandiose things. New gamemodes, perks, updates and upgrades, the whole package. But as y'all can plainly see... not much has happened. Granted, some (if not most) of these things we've mentioned and "teased" are still being worked on, chipped away gradually. Truth is, life sure loves getting in the way of things, and like most of you folks, we tend to get swept up in it all. I know I got my share of stuff I oughta be doing for Stompz... so again, we're sorry for the hold-ups, for all the dreams on delay. Hopefully with these weekly reminders, we'll get some things moving again.
Now passing the melodramatic and onto more exciting stuff... like in-game updates! Now we keep rambling on about the things we work on (and the subsequent radio static when asked what ever that seems to be... heh), aaaand we got nothing to show for it. Let's change that. Here's a preview of something I've been working on for quite a bit:
Okay, a little more melodrama in the pandering glam shot, but I don't wanna reveal all of it yet.
Wet the whistle a bit, huh? Before you ask, no, it's not just the boat (and yes, that is a boat); it's quite a bit more, something we've really needed in Stompz for a while... Don't worry, we got more stuff lined up as we continue these updates. Just because the server's been quiet doesn't mean we aren't necessarily doing "nothing", per se.
Now onto our Town Shout-Out! This week's featured town happens to be BlockVille! With town staff online daily and an open invite to anyone interested, it's no surprise they'ev been a growing town in this dry spell. There's always something being worked on around here, whether it be expanding their railway system, erecting yet another skyscraper around town square, adding another public spawner/grinder, or simply expanding their borders to fit incoming residents. If you're new to Stompz- or just need somewhere to settle in and re-acclimate for a bit- then Blockville is a good choice to start off.
BlockVille (City) (Open)

Come visit their Clock Tower or check out their triple-triggered-door!
One final thing before we close off, and this is sort of a speculative piece. As these progress, I'll spout off ideas and thoughts (many will be shared from other members and staff) and see how you folks as a whole react to it. To start off... anyone remember building competitions? Every month, we'd have a grand ol' build-off to see who was top kek, sticking to a theme and working their socks off against time to craft a masterpiece for everyone to enjoy. Lots of monies/stompz were given out, lots of friendly (and not-so-friendly) rivalries erupted, and lots of good memories were had. Now granted, we only got, what, 5 or 6 of you guys on at any given time, and these normally are ran with at least twice as many folks. But should the opportunity present itself... would anyone be interested in bringing back the Build Comp? Not that I'd be excited, or anything. B-baka.
Just like every other Stompz thing we do, we want to include you, the community. After all, you guys are what makes Stompz what it is! So if you have any questions about these updates, or requests, see AccidentProneMan or Pingsterr! Site PM, in-game PM, Discord, e-mail, doesn't matter! We'll be sure to respond as quickly as we can. And don't worry if it gets technical... we'll bug Diamond about it. More stuff will be added to these as we roll along, but for now, I hope this helps in some way or at least amused you folks. See ya server-side!
