It's been a while since I updated the website. Firstly two new schematics, ooKrazy's mega base from season 3 of StrangeCraft and a new version of Ray's works shulker farm check them both out.
We've smashed through the 10k download mark, I think I can safely say people are finding the website useful! On the negative side of things google decided a growth in traffic repesented "unusual traffic" and are limiting ad's, I have absolutely no way of challenging this. The cost of the website comes completely out of my own pocket so if you'd like to help keep the website running the best way to do that is to subscribe to my channel and watch my youtube content.
Lastly the next milestone for my channel is 2000 subscribers, with that will come a new annoucement, so hit the subscribe button and stick around to find out what.
Finally hit a landmark I've been aiming at for a while. 100 litematic files! The website is now averaging around 100 downloads per day as well which is fantastic, up from around 50 a day when I started it.
Will still aim to increase the amount of litematic files available, if you have any builds you'd like to share then join the StrangeCraft discord and let me know!!!
Lastly just to say that between adverts and youtube I still don't cover the cost of this website so if you find it useful please consider giving my channel a subscribe and check out my latest video whilst you enjoy your new litematic files!
It's been a while since my last update, firstly 3 new schematics, a basalt farm, shulker farm and cool island house so go check them out.
I've started a new youtube series from the StrangeCraft SMP that I play on, video is to the right of this message so go and check it out. It's pretty awesome if I do say so myself and less than 10 minutes long. The youtube channel helps pay for this website, to keep this running long term I need it to be self sustaining (it's not at the moment) so every video view is appreciated.
Lastly, website updates have been... well rather slow. It's proving very tricky to get the schematic browsing pages right but I am still working on it.
Still working hard on the updates, it's proving a tricky beast to get right. In the meantime I've made a couple of minor changes to the existing schematics page.
Well I've been working on updates to the schematics beta page, starting to get an idea of how it's going to look going forward, however with so many different types of building and farms it's proving difficult to get right.
So expect more updates over the coming days. I'd love to know what you think of the changes, let me know on twitter, or on discord (links up top).
I'm not sure I say this enough but follow me on Twitter, I'm lonely over there
Secondly you may notice a new link up top Browse Schematics (Beta). Easily the worst part of the current website is actually finding relevant schematics especially as the number of files increase, this page is to fix that. What you currently see is not the end product. I am testing ideas and working on that page right now, so you will probably see errors at times and large changes to the layout so bear with me.
The initial plan is to move the filters down the left hand side, do some grouping with the tags (i.e farms, building styles) and limit the number of results per page to help with loading times. If you have ideas of how it could be improved, head over to twitter and let me know.
I've started to add new schematics today, I'm aiming to increase the number of houses, towers and general cool buildings, as they have been asked for, we're a little farm heavy. On the existing schematics page newest uploads are at the end. On the beta page, newest uploads have their own section. Check them out!
Wow so many downloads! Thank you.
That bad flu or covid I mentioned turned out to be covid and it's taken me a bit of time to recover, despite having had my 1st jab. Let me tell you it still packs a punch.
Between that and the fact I've been playing a ton of Minecraft myself I haven't had chance to implement planned updates to this website.
In the next two weeks I plan on implementing changes, improvements that were previously mentioned and adding more schematics. I'll keep you posted!
Lastly I hit 1000 subscribers on youtube this week, thank you to everyone watching, like, subscribing and commenting on my videos, there is more to come from me.
1000+ downloads is fantastic news. Jenson got some secondary issues from his fight so several more vets visits and lots of medication later he is a lot better now and hopefully allowed back out.
Annoyingly I've come down with either a bad cold or covid, awaiting test results so updates to this website have taken a bit of a back seat. I've got several new schematics to add as well as the new features previously posted about once I feel better.
I've removed advertising from the schematics page, the auto placement was awful. I want the website to pay for itself eventually but it's still got to be a good user expereince. Apologies for the few days where it wasn't.
Lastly if you do join the discord to discuss schematics do so politely, we had a chap come in cursing asking for particular schematics, that's a sure fire way to get yourself banned.
Wow, 500 downloads, hopefully you're finding the website incrdibly useful, I'd still love to see more of your uploads so don't forget to hit that upload button up top!
I've been a little bit slow on the new features but Jenson (my cat) got into a fight and I ended up with a pretty rough weekend, it's ok though he is on the mend and doing my head in as he isn't allowed out for a few more days yet.
I expect the next set of updates to be towards the end of next week, as I'll obviously be playing 1.17! Still have my youtube content to do as well.
Pretty sure the last 24 hours have been a record for number of downloads which is fantastic, the site is continuing to grow and more schematics have been added in the last few days.
The bug that caused yesterdays issue has been identified, more code updates coming to resolve it and a host of new features are planned.
As always a big thank you for visiting the page, I hope you're enjoying it and finding it useful. Don't forget to join me at Youtube, Twitter and Discord! Links are up top.
A big thank you to youtube user van schmickle who let me know about some issues with certain schematics, there were a couple of problems. Firstly where the user didn't have a youtube channel it was impossible to download the schematic due to an oversight in the code, now fixed. Secondly a few schematics seem to fail to upload, I have fixed all the broken ones and am looking to make the upload process a little more robust!.
I will be adding a report feature on schematics in the near future but in the meantime if you spot a problem, feel free to comment on a video, tweet me or join the discord to let me know. Thank you.
I consider this an important milestone, we've had our first user uploads using the upload schematic up the top of the page, they've now been added to the website, including those amazing ships (filter on ships). A big thank you to Hollywood3K for using the feature and I hope more and more of you do to make the schematics section a thriving area!.
A minor change whilst I work on a new schematics page to make it easier to navigate, originally the website was loading up 1920x1080 png's for every schematic before resizing down to 320x180. I have scripted a solution to create 320x180 images that the page now uses. Instead of 400mb of images, the page is now under 5mb. Result should be a much faster loading time!
100 downloads! Thank you, I hope you're all finding the website incredibly useful. I am still working on new features to make navigating the schematics easier. I've been working on making the homepage more useful today, you'll now see an abfielder featured schematic, the most downloaded schematic on the website and the newest.
Next up is improving the schematics page itself to make viewing schematics easier and quicker to load. It was ok when there were only a handful of schematics but now we're up to 50 schematics it's getting more difficult. The plan is to break it up into more sections. So featured schematics, most popular and newest then the filtering and I'll be working on paging that so you see no more than 25 per page, which should help with page loads times and usability.
The website has been live for just over 24 hours now and a total of 84 schematic's have been downloaded! So thank you for visiting. Of the features mentioned below, you can now filter the schematics and upload your own. I am currently working to implement the order by feature, I would like to be able to order by the creator, date uploaded and most downloaded to begin with. Search will be one of the last functions added to the schematic section.
We also now have a total of 36 different schematics from some absolutely awesome content creators, I will be aiming to get that up to 50 today and continuing to grow the database. I would absolutely love for you to start using the upload feature and adding your own, they can be anything. Houses, Bases, Terrain, Farms etc... and if you have a youtube or twitch channel then this could be an absolutely fantastic way to get people seeing your content!
Hello and welcome to Abfielder's new website! If you're here then maybe it's because you've been watching my litematica and tweakeroo youtube videos and you want to find an excellent collection of schematics in the correct format!
Well you are in the right place, hit that schematics button up the top. Don't forget to support the creators of those schematics by subscribing or following them, links to their content are displayed on every page. Some of the farms are complicated and have specific requirements that you need to watch the videos to understand.
As you can imagine a lot of work has gone into this site already but it is day one so features are limited. I am working on adding lots of new features in the near future
