Sonic Adventure Minecraft is a project I've dedicated myself to for the past 4 years now. The goal of the project is to bring the entire world of Sonic Adventure into Minecraft and give it new life as a huge Open World sim, rather than just an action game. The city of Station Square is going to be absolutely huge, rivalling the likes of Grand Theft Auto in scale while still paying homage to the Sonic Universe in which it's set.
Every single action stage from Sonic Adventure will be faithfully recreated and presented in the world of Minecraft as you remember it but with new areas to explore to add to the experience. The crown jewel of it all though will be with the city of Station Square itself. Miraculous detail has gone into building the city from just a simple hub world into a unique, living breathing city. There are hundreds of places to explore from water parks, casinos, department stores, shopping malls, apartment buildings, subways, train stations, Chao gardens and much more.
In the current build of the game you can explore a huge chunk of the city, all of Speed Highway, parts of Twinkle Park, Casinopolis and the Mystic Ruins as well as 4 huge shopping malls, department stores, hotels, train stations and many other interiors. The finished build of the project will feature the entire game of Sonic Adventure fully recreated in an open world, merged in with the entire city of Station Square that was featured in the Sonic X TV series as well as many unique locations of my own design.
The entire map in the final build will be populated with thousands of unique NPCS as well as many other Sonic characters that will cameo throughout the game and can even tag along with you on your adventure. It will be years however before this all comes to fruition so until then I'll keep updating with progress and will release updated builds here at least once a year.
You can download Beta V4 of the project from here: www.mediafire.com/download/6cw… You will need to be using Minecraft 1.6.4 to run the map properly unless you're willing to update and run the included files yourself. Everything you'll need will be provided for with the download file however.
Shenmue Minecraft, like Sonic Adventure Minecraft above, is going to be a huge open world sim set within the world of Shenmue. The entire world of Shenmue 1, 2 and 3 will be faithfully recreated in the project as you remember it but the world itself will also be heavily expanded to offer new areas to explore.
Yokosuka is going to be a huge open world city with many unique places to explore. The newly built train station in Amihama will act as a hub to let you explore other locations around Asia that weren't originally even featured in Shenmue including Tokyo, Shanghai, Guiyang, Maceu and Quebec to name a few.
There will be tons of content to explore in the final build of the project and thousands of unique NPC's you can interact and converse with as well. All of your favorite characters from the series will feature in the game as well as fun easter egg cameos from other well known Sega franchises hidden throughout the map.
You can download Beta V3 of the project from here: www.mediafire.com/download/6cw… You will need to be using Minecraft 1.6.4 to run the map properly though everything you'll need will be provided for within the download file.
Sonic Craft Adventure
Sonic Craft Adventure is a new fan project i'm working on within Minecraft. The project is going to be this huge action platformer paying tribute to the original Sonic the Hedgehog games from the early 90's while still being completely original in it's own design. There are going to be 10 unique worlds you can explore within the game, each with their own different branching pathways and routes making each playthrough completely unique.
The entire game within itself is going to be a tribute celebrating Sonic's entire history. Many memorable characters, enemies and locations will also feature and cameo within the game as you progress with a much bigger reward given to those who manage to complete the game and defeat Dr. Eggman.
This is more of an experimental passion project than an actual game but fans of the Korean pop group SHINee may get a kick out of this. Basically in the game you're playing as a member of SHINee and together the five of you are trying to open up a small restaurant in the middle of Seoul. Depending on which member of the group you choose will depend on your role within the restaurant so Key and Taemin play the role of waiters, Minho is the bartender, Onew is the chef and Jonghyun is the manager of the establishment. The game is more fun to play with friends but if playing solo the game will have you set up with Taemin by default.
The interesting twist of the game is that it's not just a restaurant simulator. Outside of the restaurant is an entire, densely populated open world to explore. There's plenty to see and do outside of work hours, you can eat at fast food restaurants, go shopping at the mall, buy clothes in department stores, visit the arcade, watch movies at the cinema, play indoor go karting, hit the swimming pool, visit the park, walk along the riverbank or just chill at your apartment until the day's over.
It's more of a second life simulator than a job simulator and how you tackle the game is up to you. It's strictly designed as a role playing sim so having friends to play with is highly recommended.
Minecraft World is another open world simulation project I'm building on the side. It's in too early of it's stages to really show it off but the goal of the project is to bring real towns and cities to life within Minecraft, fully populated with thousands of unique pedestrians and traffic to really bring the locations to life.
My focus right now is on my other already established projects above but the towns and cities I'm planning to include with this project so far are Cheltenham, Exminster, Birmingham, Gloucester, Exeter, Exmouth, Paignton, Goodrington, Torquay, Bristol, London, Dawlish, Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, Stroud, Brixham, Sidmouth, and Seoul (South Korea). I may include more locations in the future or even tone this list down but it's really too early to say right now where the project is headed.
The goal of this project is to recreate the 1992 arcade cabinet game, SegaSonic Arcade in Minecraft, letting you play with either Sonic, Ray or Mighty as you have to traverse each of the 7 stages of Eggman's Island and survive the deadly traps and obstacles along the way. This is only a short project so I plan to release the full game for download when it's ready, rather than releasing earlier builds for download every year. You can see an early sneak preview of the project down below.
Animal Crossing Minecraft
This is a side project I'm working on in an attempt to bring the world of Animal Crossing to Minecraft. The finished version is going to be a huge world of over 20 unique villages all connected by a railway system, a large city and small town to explore, a tropical resort island and even chao gardens. Every single existing Animal Crossing NPC will be part of the project as well as over 50 human residents that you can interact with. No word on when the project will be finished but as it's much smaller than my other projects, I'd much rather release the finished version for download instead of releasing updated beta versions every year.
You can see an early sneak preview of the project here:
Katherine and Hippoloid
This is a project of mine that I've been passionately taking about for years yet have very little to show for in terms of progress, but Katherine and Hippoloid was my first project that I started when I was 15 and have been very enthusiastic and passionate about ever since. It's a 5 part story about a girl named Katherine and her best friend Rhys who (while never explained in the story) both have superhuman like abilities to be able to defy gravity and basically travel around the world as freely as a feather. But in the story their entire world is under attack from an alien invasion lead by an evil tyrant known only as Untitled and a secret resistance group lead by a small hippo named Hippoloid join forces with Katherine & Rhys in an effort to stop the invasion and save both of their worlds from Untitled's rule.
Outside of concept character artwork and the story itself I don't have much to share on the project but I really do hope in the future to be able to turn this into my own video game series, animated series or at the very least a web comic.
This is a project I've been passionate about for most of my entire life now.
Outside of this, I have plenty of other projects in the works, from fan games to animated shorts, comic books and loads more. It's a long road ahead but I'm going to work hard to try and make it all happen. Hopefully you'll enjoy what I have in store.
Here I plan to bring you all my latest projects for the future as well as upload all my artwork and photography. My main aspiration in life is to make it big as an animator and game designer, I hopefully wanna move to the big city and set up my own little art studio so I can make my dream happen. Thanks so much for supporting, and hopefully you'll enjoy my work too when it's ready. - Ashton
I am grateful for everyone who views and enjoys my work, sorry if I can't respond to every single comment and message I get but I hope you understand, very often I'm really busy and I can only respond to a handful of messages at a time.
If you wanna use my Photography as stock or colour in any of my art, don't hesitate to ask. But please wait for my permission first otherwise I'm going to treat your devitation as art theft and instantly report it.
::Sonic Mania Keyring, SMTown and Sonic Adventure 4K::
Hey everyone! Just a quick update on a few things. As I promised in the previous journal, the Sonic Mania keyrings arrived so here are few photos showing them off as well as some of the other keyrings I've had made over the years.
I'm still on the bench over whether I'll actually do an apartment tour video or not. Even though I've been here almost a year now I still feel this apartment is far from complete, or at least to my vision of what I want the place to actually look like. I still have plenty of posters I need to get framed, plants and shelves I need to buy, a bigger stand for my TV, etc.
I'm probably making a fuss over nothing, but I'd rather show this place off when I feel it's completely finished as opposed to just throwing a camera around the place as it is now. I dunno.
But anyway onto the actual update. I've made a new video showing off the progress with my current project, SMTown. The amount of progress thats been made within a single month is nothing short of amazing. The entire city is at least a good 50% complete now and all thats really left to do is finish making the buildings, do all the interiors of each building and then populate with the NPCS.
I plan on eventually making a lot more NPC's for the map because I only have roughly 500+ so far and I want at the very least a good 700 or 800 total. (Thats for unique NPCS btw, obviously I will clone them to increase the population as all open world games do)
But anyway, in the video I show off the progress made with certain locations and buildings within the map, mostly Gangnam Station, Crimson World, Cafe Amy and the Sports Expo. Enjoy!
As for one final update. A long while back I made a video playthrough of Sonic Adventure DX in 4K. I've put off uploading it for a long while now because the file size was so big that it would take days just to upload each individual part but now I'm slowly getting off my ass and am finally doing it. For anyone who's interested in seeing what the games actually looks like in 4K, here's the first part.
Please bear in mind that each part of these videos is roughly 5-6GB each and I have really slow internet here so it takes me like an entire day just to upload 10-15 minutes worth of footage so updates will be slow, but I am determined to get this out the way with.
I also need to get around to uploading the rest of the Alice Madness Returns playthrough I uploaded years back and then kinda just abandoned for the exact same reasons and I have a load of other playthrough videos all sitting on my hard drive for again, the same reason.
If you keep an eye on my YouTube channel you should hopefully see something you like.
Looking through the list of videos to upload I have: The Pokemon Stadium Games in Japanese Chuck Rock James Pond 2 Rally Championship Sonic 2 Beta Sonic - The lost lands 1 and 2 Sonic Megamix 3.0 and 4.0 Sonic Advance 1, 2 and 3 in Japanese Sonic the Hedgehog Remastered South Park Rally The Simpsons Road Rage Aladdin Asterix Sonic 2 Heroes Sonic Cd Beta Sonic 3D Beta And plenty more I still need to sort through and edit.
I do plan to make another SMTown video touring the map properly when I can get my new PC setup ready. At the moment I can't record video footage using my current setup but I'm in the middle of fixing that. Hopefully I can have more done in the game so there's more to show by that point as well.
Update - 5/9/16 I just wanted to throw this in here instead of making another journal about it, but I've decided to include Kai from Exo as a playable character in my SM Town Project.
Basically to cut a long story short, the original plan with this project was to release multiple versions of the same game when it was finished, with each version tweaked and tailored for each playable member of the group. (A specific version for people wanting to play as Onew, a specific version for people wanting to play as Minho, etc)
But anyway, in the version I'm currently working on, I'm playing as Taemin, but I wanted to have an AI handled clone of Taemin in the restaurant on standby so when I work on the other versions of the game, I don't have to keep making different clones of Taemin for each unique version, I can just have one stay put in the restaurant with the other AI members of Shinee while I work on the game and then cut, copy and paste elements when I need to later on.
Anyway, cutting to the chase I didn't like the idea of having a clone of Taemin in the restaurant while I'm already playing as the 'Real Taemin' so I've decided to include Kai from Exo in the game and have him be the unofficial 6th member of the group, seeing as him and Taemin are already close friends in real life.
I'll make him a part time waiter in the restaurant on the side or maybe a porter to assist Onew in the Kitchen as I admit they do need one. I'll either give him his own apartment next to the Shinee members (as there are a lot of empty, unused apartments in the building) or I'll just have him simply share and bunk up with Taemin, seeing as how his apartment already has the best view in the building and its the apartment I'm currently using anyway.
Anyway consider Kai the unofficial 6th member of the group for now and maybe later down the line I'll either add him into the game officially as an AI character or just have him as an optional 6th character on the side for those who want him.
