Sonic Adventure Minecraft

The goal of Sonic Adventure Minecraft is to recreate the entire game of Sonic Adventure in Minecraft as well as include brand new areas you can explore.
Massively expanding upon the city of Station Square and turning it into a real city with locations from other well known Sonic games thrown in as well.
There are hundreds of unique pedestrians in the game you can interact with as well as Chao populating the Chao Gardens and badnik/enemies populating the action stages.

You can download Beta V2 of the project from here: en.file-upload.net/download-82…
This version is designed specifically for Minecraft 1.5.1 and you will need Forge Universal and Noppes Custom NPC mod (both provided) to run the map properly.

Visit the archive section of my journal if you want to download any previous versions of the project.

You can see plenty of videos of the project in action on my youtube channel here: www.youtube.com/user/SamThomps…

I'll be upgrading to Minecraft 1.6.4 very soon to make my projects compatible with Oculus Rift's Virtual Reality glasses. I don't plan to upgrade my maps to any later version past that point unless I have to so if you're using a version of Minecraft higher or lower than 1.6.4, you may need to track down the necessary files to either upgrade or downgrade your version of minecraft in order to run the maps smoothly. Apologies for the inconvenience.






Shenmue Minecraft

The goal of Shenmue Minecraft, like Sonic Adventure Minecraft is to recreate the entire game of both Shenmue 1 and 2 in Minecraft, complete with my own unique areas and locations to create a huge expansive world out of an old game.
The map of Yokosuka in this project is going to be huge and will cover many unique districts that will be new to Shenmue fans such as Aida Park, Lamistar Shopping District, Takome Village, etc.

In the final version, you'll be able to travel from Yokosuka to Hong Kong through Amnihama Station which will take you to Wan Chai, Kowloon, Guilin, Shanghai, Tokyo and Guiyang, the city featured in my Shenmue 3 fan-fiction novel. thecrimsonemo.deviantart.com/g… (Guiyang being heavily inspired by the map from Sleeping Dogs)

I also plan to populate the city with thousands of unique NPC's, both familiar and original. (Though in the current betas you'll only be able to interact with Shenmue exclusive characters)

You can download Beta V1 from here: en.file-upload.net/download-81…
This version is designed specifically for Minecraft 1.5.1 and you will need Forge Universal and Noppes Custom NPC mod (both provided) to run the map properly.
Everything you need is provided for along with a fully detailed READ ME file so don't fret too much over it.






Minecraft World

As well as both Shenmue and Sonic Adventure, I've also started working on another major project where I plan to recreate real life towns and cities across the UK using Minecraft and Google Maps. Each town and city is going to be it's own project but the overall project is going to simply be called Minecraft World.
So far I'm just going to be focusing on each town's shopping center and working my way out into the suburban and industrial areas later on. My focus right now is Cheltenham Spa and Exminster Village but I'll soon be spreading out into Birmingham, Gloucester, Exmouth, Bristol and plenty of other parts of the country.
Here's the list of planned areas I'm going to be working on.
I'll update with images and download links when they're ready.

Minecraft Exminster
(currently working on Deepway Lane)


You can see a video of the project in a very early build here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNtTcK…

Minecraft Cheltenham
(Currently working on The High Street, Town Centre)



Later projects will include:
Minecraft Gloucester
Minecraft Birmingham
Minecraft Exmouth
Minecraft Paignton (and Goodrington)
Minecraft Exeter
Minecraft London
Minecraft Torquay
Minecraft Dawlish
Minecraft Teignmouth
Minecraft Stroud
Minecraft Bristol
Minecraft Newton Abbot

I have plenty of other towns and cities planned afterwards if I feel it's worth the effort, but these 14 areas will be my main focus for the time being.
None of this should really interfere with both Sonic Adventure and Shenmue Minecraft, it's really more of a side project to go alongside them.
I'll keep updating on the progress as I go so for now, watch this space.

Other Projects

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: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QTt0A…



SegaSonic ArcadeCraft

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.
I'll be posting a video of the gameplay soon.



Sonic 1 Minecraft

Sonic 1 Minecraft is going to be a recreation of the 1991 classic Sonic the Hedgehog on Megadrive in full 3D. The stages are going to be completely redesigned from the ground up and I'm going to be making the game using the original sprites for each level as well as populating the game with Badnik enemies, animals and new challenging boss fights.
I have future plans to give Sonic 2, 3, Knuckles and CD the same treatment.



Wreck it Ralph Minecraft

This is a project I don't intend to even start for a long time but it's something I've been passionate about doing for a long while now.
I intend to recreate the entire world of Wreck it Ralph from the Movie in Minecraft.
Game Central station will be the central hub and from there you can travel to over a dozen different arcade worlds, from Fix it Felix Jr, Sugar Rush, Hero's Duty to other licenced arcade franchises like Sonic Championship, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter and many more.



Shenmue 3: The Complete Saga

Shenmue 3: The Complete Saga is my attempt to continue and finish off Yu Suzuki's Shenmue saga which has been in limbo since the Dreamcast died in 2001.
This project is basically my own interpretation to how I personally envision Shenmue 3, should it ever exist someday. There's going to be 11 chapters in the story bringing Ryo through Guilin, Kowloon and to the Chinese city of Guiyang where the story finally concludes.
The project has been on hold for a long while now but you can read the current 6 chapters of my story here: thecrimsonemo.deviantart.com/g…
I'll update when the rest are ready,

Hopefully someday I'll turn this into a web comic and maybe even an animated movie or game but for now I'm more concerned with having the story itself finished and uploaded for those interested to be able to read and have some sort of closure with the series, even if it is just a fictional interpretation.



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.



Deadline

This is a project I started when I was in courage and was hoping to turn it into a side scrolling horror game for Newgrounds and DeviantArt but my attention has shifted towards other things and the project currently remains in Limbo.
Basically the premise of the project is a 3 part horror series about a teenage boy named Andrew who wakes up in a post apocalyptic future that's completely alien to him. He finds himself all alone in what appears to be a normal city that after sunset becomes Mysteriously infested with zombies, but as he digs deeper into this doomed society he realises that the secrets behind this reality go much, much deeper.

I don't know when I will continue working on this project but concept art for it does exist in my DeviantArt gallery so you can at least have a rough idea of what the project looks like.

Left in Transition by TheCrimsonEmo Dudley St, Birmingham 5 by TheCrimsonEmo Cross paths by TheCrimsonEmo Commission: Katherine and Rhys by pandakunoichi18


Hey guys, welcome to my DA page.

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.

P.S. I'm well aware my Gallery is mess right now, once I've uploaded all my work I'm going to reconstruct the entire gallery from scratch, removing the junk, moving lesser work into scraps, etc and just genuinely tidying it up. Just try to bear with me until I do, I still have a lot to upload.

Oh hey. That version is really out of date now. Minecraft changed the way the texture packs work when they updated the program so I had to update the texture pack as well.
If you download the more recent version of my map the texture pack I included with it should work. =)

You might of scrolled past it. It's on this page, just under the artwork.
I'm still working on it as we speak. It'll be years before the whole thing is finished but I plan to upload the updated version this summer. Somewhere around June or July.
There isn't a set date yet. =)

Oh nice! I was kinda hoping they'd take away having the screensaver come on automatic startup or just letting us turn off that feature altogether or at the very least make it so that it doesn't have to be swiped to go away but still, some much needed improvements

Oh damn... I knew the xbox one was behind ps4 but that is ridiculous!
I mean how the fuck can you be so blindsighted to even consider designing a games console without a power button, of all things...!?
Yeah I'm definitely going to wait until those issues are addressed, even if it does mean missing out on halo 2 anniversary.
400 for that isn't worth it.
Thanks for the video
