The field is now FLOOD READY!

I’ve been animating a lot lately, so I haven’t been making updates to the Spirited Away world. But now that I’m finished with Animator vs. Animation IV, I can devote more time to this map. Another reason why I haven’t done much is because I’ve been waiting for 1.8 to come out, so that I can release features that involve the /clone and /fill commands. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE FEATURES!

In Spirited Away, Chihiro and her parents cross a grassy field to get to the ghost town. When night falls, and Chihiro’s parents turn into pigs, she flees back toward the field, only to find that it has become overrun by water.

In order to stay true to the movie as possible, my Minecraft map needed to include a field that floods only at night. Thanks to the 1.8 update, it is now possible! Using the /clone command, I can make the field slowly fill up with water when nights falls, and drain back to normal when the sun rises. Check it out!

More updates to come!
