The Nexus Project

Post by legowiz102 on Sun 12 Dec 2010, 12:35 am

As some of you know, I'm the leader of the Nexus Project. We are creating an entire system in Digital Designer and sending it to the developers for the game. I'd like to know what you think of these worlds that we are currently constructing.

Nexus Universal Station (N.U. Station)
- Based on Nimbus Station
- Location of Nexus military base, Maelstrom Prison, and the new Nexus Tower
- The new location of the imagination Nexus. Faction leaders have established a military base here and are currently sending troops to reclaim Nexus City.

Aquatic Research and Experiment Facility (A.R.E. Facility)
- Based on the Wizard101 world of Celestia
- An undersea research station is under attack by the Maelstrom! Dome 19A has been breached and water is flowing in fast. Admiral Jake Wolfe is struggling to hold back the incoming enemies until help arrives.

Nexus City
- A ruined version of Nexus City, the city itself exploded into chunks
- Last world before Maelstrom Vortex Dungeon
- After an invasion by the Maelstrom, Nexus City now lies in ruins. The city itself has exploded into smaller fragments. Commander Raymond Zeus, leader of the Dragon Guard, is leading the effort to push back the Maelstrom.

Maelstrom Vortex
- This will be a Dungeon instance.
- You will get to fight Baron Typhonus and infected versions of the faction leaders.
- We have two ideas on what will happen after this: Baron Typhonus escapes or another group of minifigures try and revive the Maelstrom.
- To defeat the bosses, you have to do so according to their beliefs about the Maelstrom. For example, since Dr. Overbuild is Assembly, you will have to build a contraption to defeat him. NOTE: these will be clones of the actual faction leaders created by the Baron.

We also have some worlds under review. These may be created, depending on if the other members want to create them and if we can fit them into our story.

Steampunk World
- No concepts created yet.

Snow World (Frostopia)
- Concept: a chunk of Planet Crux that was thrown into orbit around Space Station 5000.
- May not be created, due to the amount of snow terrain worlds already in LU.

Lava World
- No concepts created yet.
- Themed to LEGO Power Miners.

Forest World
- No concepts created yet.
- Will be based on the Wizard101 world of Grizzleheim.

For more information, visit the Nexus Project website.

I love the idea of lava world. Would be cool if they went into a volcano (not lego) and inside they jump from block to block (blocks resemble rock platforms) (blocks are lego) and if you dont make it to the platform, you sink into the lava and die.

Nice worlds and great ideas! Going into a volcano would be really cool and we could exit/enter from the top and the bottom.

Yah! Which gives me an idea! Anyone seen Journey to the Center of the Earth (new one). Well it would be cool if to exit you get on a rock platform and lava pushes you out the top.

I agree, these are good ideas, but I dunno if I'd want worlds based on another online game in LU. The worlds need to be fully unique to LU. Smile

Still, great ideas, and they'd no doubt be cool to visit. Smile

When I said "based on" I meant that just for the building designs. The story will be totally different from theirs. Here's an example:

Celestia


A.R.E. Facility Concept

I was thinking about making a park area in Nexus Universal Station dedicated to the Mythrans as a thank you for the hard work that they do. What do you think? I'm sure I could find some way to incorporate it into our story.

The A.R.E Facility is big! And good idea about the park, I agree with it.

Nice video, legowiz102! Thanks for putting my name as mapmaker, I'm trying to find a way of making the Maelstrom. For the worlds, I will add them as they are in LDD.

My iPad can't see the vid for some reason... any way you can correct that?

By the way, it appears as though, since BT has been corrupted by the Maelstrom, it appears as though his name has been changed to the Darkitect.
Maybe the Darkitect Wastelands?

@Legofan101: The problem might be because I didn't finalize with an iPad/iPhone compatible version.

@CapnSkye: Thanks!

@BrokenSqueakyHammer-Theta: Thanks! and welcome to the forum! Smile

I'm working on the racetrack for Nexus Universal Station, which will be themed to the movie: TRON Legacy. I hope to have the concept posted soon! Very Happy

I'm just basing the design off the Light Cycle Grid arena challenge, so I doubt i'd be violating any copyrights. Although, better safe than sorry! Wink

CapnSkye said it right, "Wow"!

I am looking forward to the Corrupted Sentries. Because they have security experience and have turned bad maybe they will sneak up on us or blend into the walls and attack us as we walk by.
