  3. Hi there! Some of you may wonder (as I did) how the plugin you're given access to on Creative (Show Creator) compares to the plugin the Show Developers are given access to. If you try to edit a show on Creative, you're given a GUI (Graphical User Interface) to edit a show with. This edits the file on the server and allows the show to be played when you start it. However, we use a IDE (Integrated Development Environment) to edit our files. Most work, but we tend to start on Notepad++ due to it's simplicity. You're also given limited functionality over on Creative and can only use basic features such as Fireworks, Text, Particles and audio. We program in this and many more including blocks, armour stands, fountains and other effects. Although you cannot use blocks on Creative, if you spawn a Large Ball firework on top of a pressure plate it allows you to trigger Redstone so you could turn lights on or off and use general Vanilla Minecraft Redstone to aid your show's presentation and feel. Tips for Show Creator: Use a program like Audacity and input your show's audio there (most can be found somewhere on the Internet). This gives you a lot of accuracy in your placement of text and effects! Try to avoid any time in the show where nothing is happening unless it is completely intentional. In a show with actors, try to ensure your cast are ready and prepared for the show. Maybe provide a script with stage directions. Announce your show beforehand and keep going even if only a few guests come along - it looks better if you keep going! Best of luck with your shows, and I hope to see some incredible creations soon! If you get stuck, ask a Staff Member or report it as a bug if you see fit.
  4. Hi everyone! Happy New Year! Bit more of an open-ended question this year: What is your favourite New Years Celebration or Tradition? Hope to see you all around!

  6. Hello Magical People, Many times now, I have received questions to what it is like to be a Show Developer here on Palace. Of course, I'm not here to ruin the magic, but I want to explain a little bit to how our shows work... Shows are ran using a custom Palace plugin. If you have participated in some of our backstage tours on Palace, you'll notice very little redstone is required to create our shows and when it is, it is usually for front-end movements such as Armour Stands. As some of you may know from our Show Creator on Creative, shows are completely automated and require very little input from our Staff Team when running your favourties like Wishes, IRoE, SitS and more. Our version of the plugin is a lot more advanced than the Show Creator on Creative, with a lot more features. Here are some questions I am asked about shows: * What language do you use to create shows, and which IDE do you tend to use? * We use a custom language that our Show Plugin interprets - it is not one of the languages you will use such as Java or HTML. Our Developers tend not to work in our Show Plugin. They're the people who make the plugin work! Show Devs are the people who create the shows which you see. We tend to use Notepad++ when we start but this can develop more as you progress. * Audio is a key factor to shows, how does this work? * You will know by now that we also have a custom Audio Plugin for all of your audio loving needs. We use this just like Disney - we setup our own Audio Areas where specific audio is played (either looping or triggered). * How long does it take to make shows, and how many lines of code does it take? * This completely depends on the show! Some shows which do not have many movements can take a few hundred or thousand lines. Others (such as Wishes or IRoE) can take hundreds of thousands of lines to code. Some of this is simply dedicated to one specific part of the show! Some shows can take days, weeks, months or even years to code depending on the degree of accuracy we want them to be! * How can I make shows on Palace? * For those simply wanting to create shows for a Creative Plot, Show Creator is a great place to get started! The only way (at the time of writing) to code shows for Palace as a role is to become a Staff Member first and then apply to become a Show Developer. You'll start with smaller shows to help you learn the language and how it works, but you can escalate to some of the biggest shows such as Wishes! Best of luck out there! Remember that most of this is really oversimplified - you'll learn more if you become staff and work on shows in the future! MagicA550

  8. Hello there Magical People! I'm going to start a monthly question to which things you prefer! If I've forgotten anything in the poll, please let me know. I'm not that knowledgeable about Disneyland in California. Happy December, y'all! Have a magical Holidays!
