Q: "How old are you?"
A: I am currently 22 years old. I was born on April 18th, 1998.
Q: "Where do you live?"
A: I live on the east coast of the United States!
Q: "What college did you graduate from?"
A: I am a proud alumni of the University of Central Florida!
Q: "What is your real name?"
A: This I do not intend to release as I don't believe I need to. My first name is Michael though... Fairly common name XD
Q: "Do your maps support bedrock?"
A: The maps designated to support Bedrock do. Otherwise, the ones labled as Java are for the PC edition.
Q: "Can I friend you on Discord?"
A: Due to privacy concerns, I do not use Discord friends for anything besides DMs with people I trust. I have heard rumors of IP hacking on Discord and I don't want my location public.
Q: "I want to talk to you about business, how do I do that?"
A: You can check the Other dropdown and select "Business Contact" from it. If the business does not pertain to me (ex: sending me mail about other people) it will be ignored.
Q: "What do you record with?"
A: I use ShadowPlay (by Nvidia) for screen capture and OBS for webcam. I then assemble the footage using vocal cues in Sony Vegas 15 and upload it in 1080p 60fps.
Q: "What are your computer specs?"
A: My old PC was a modified HP Pavillion tower build back from around 2011. My new PC I just built in April of 2020 is a beast, with loads of bonus features! This new PC was made entirely possible by your amazing Marketplace support! My current build is:
- Case: NZXT h510i Black Compact ATX Mid-Tower
- Motherboard: ASUS ROG Maximus XI Hero Z390 Gaming Motherboard
- CPU: Intel i9-9900k
- CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i RGB Platinum AUI Liquid Cooler
- RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 RAM sticks of 16 GB)
- Main Internal Drive: Samsung 970 EVO SSD 1TB
- Secondary Internal Drive: Seagate BarraCude 2TB Internal HDD
- Power Supply: Corsair RMX 850 Watt Gold Certified
- Graphics Card: EVGA NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super
Q: "What microphone is that?"
A: I use an AT2035. It is wired into a Pod UX2 which can be used for mixing. I recommend just settling with a simple AT2020 USB mic, it does the job about the same.
Q: "How can I learn commands and make maps?"
A: Mapmaking is a very long and complicated process. Firstly, I recommend visiting the "Resources" page on my website and learning about the different commands Minecraft offers and the scoreboard syntax. Learn target selectors too such as @a and @e with parameters. You can always check out existing maps and look around the redstone (and take notes), watch YouTube videos on the topic, or visit Minecraft help Discords for assistance.
Q: "Can you teach me how to make maps? Could you help me with this map?"
A: I am currently looking for full-time employment. "Free time" won't exist soon. Feel free to ask questions in my Discord, discord.gg/neomc.
Q: "How do I play your Multiplayer maps?"
A: You can buy a Minecraft Realm, pay for a third party server like Nodecraft, use your own router, or borrow one from a third party source like Aternos for free.
Q: "Why did you move to paid maps on the Marketplace?"
A: You don't have to buy my new maps (priced between $2 and $5 USD btw), you can always play my library of old Java maps at any time! If you want to support me, I do ask that you consider checking out my Marketplace maps! Donations are always accepted, but buying products allows me to actually hand you a good. I'm currently trying to save money for a few years so I can make a down payment on a house! :)
