Revisiting Old Minecraft Worlds In 2019

Revisiting Old Minecraft Worlds In 2019


– [Narrator] Back from 2012 to 2014, Minecraft was the real deal. Everyone played it,
everyone talked about it, and MINECON was, unfortunately, a thing. And, it was a very awkward thing. – Um, I was wondering. What’s the recommended
amount of dedicated RAM does it have to server? – [Narrator] Like, very awkward. (crowd cheers) – Make some noise. Come on people, keep going. Come on red side, come on, you can do it. Makes some noise, yeah. – [Narrator] But the point
is, Minecraft was poppin’. Billions of hours were played, billions of blocks were placed, and everyone loved it, myself included. Around this time, I was
in late middle school and early high school, and after a long day of sitting
around and being awkward, I would come home and play
some Minecraft with friends. But, I wasn’t a very
big PC kid at the time, and I played primarily on Xbox 360. It was a lot of fun, and I spent hours and
hours creating new things, and building really ugly and
disgusting garbage buildings on tons of different words. But, times change, and
I would end up moving on to other games, and,
eventually, other consoles. The friends that I played
with moved on with life, and so did I. I started doing YouTube. Some of my friends moved away, and others have gotten married
and have even had kids. But while life, and everything
else, has completed changed, these worlds that we
spent so many hours on have been sitting there,
completely untouched. Items are still exactly
where we left them, and buildings are half built, waiting for the day when someone
logs on and finishes them. Minecraft is basically a time capsule of my childhood thoughts,
ideas, and creations. So, when I started up my
Xbox 360 a few weeks ago to go play Guitar Hero, and
I saw it in my game library, I decided to go back and take a look. I pulled out my old capture
card and hooked it up to record my gameplay, just
to see what it would be like. I wasn’t expecting it to be like this, but it ended up feeling like
a walk down memory lane. It was nostalgic and exciting
to take a look at things that I remember from over five years ago. I somehow remembered where specific things were in the world, and I could even find my secret chest where I hid all of my
diamonds from friends. Since I recorded everything, I figured that I would make this video to show you guys how cool of
an experience it actually was. That experience is what
you’re going to be witnessing in today’s video, where I
revisit old Minecraft worlds and feel the nostalgia. Speaking of nostalgia, I have
a super exciting announcement. I have officially launched my new line of apparel called Nostalgic. All of these shirts have designs that represent old pop culture, gaming, and nostalgic things that
were popular back in the day. I’ve been working on this
for quite a while now, and I’ve made sure that everything is the best possible quality. The current designs will only
be up for a limited time, so if you’re interested at all, now is the best time to get them. I really do appreciate
all of the support lately, and none of this would be possible without all of my amazing viewers, so I just wanted to say thank you, and let you know that I’m doing this, and I’ll leave a link in
the description below, if you’re interested. So, I connected my Xbox to the internet for the first time in
what felt like a decade, and I updated pretty
much everything on it. It took forever with my garbage internet, but eventually, I got Minecraft to start, and everything was good. And, before I even hit play, I realized how much had
changed with this game. To put this into perspective, the last time I played this game was when it was on title update 19, which was when they added
the new tutorial world. Now, as a comparison, the game is now on title update, like 74. So, it’s been a little while. I mean, there’s like a
billion new texture packs, there’s somehow now
mini-games on the home screen, and everything just looks different. So, I opened up my world list and realized how many worlds I actually made back in the day. I had a tendency to play
on one for like a month, and then get bored and decide
to move onto a new one. So, we’re not gonna check out
every single one of these, but we are going to talk
about the most notable ones. So, the first world that we visited has the beautiful name of Regular, because I was very creative
with naming my names, and it was actually one of
the first survival worlds that I ever continued to play on. So, I clicked play, and after waiting, literally, forever, I ended up spawning into the world. And, I instantly realized, “Oh my god, I was bad a building.” You want to see some good building skills, well look at my glowstone
floors, smooth stone walls, doors that don’t even line up, and roofs that are only tall enough for people who are three-foot-five. I’ll admit, I wasn’t the best at building, but this is probably
when I enjoyed the game more than any other time. So, to get a tour of this
wonderfully hideous world, we have a couple main areas. First of all, there’s my
beautifully tall house, which was, obviously, the
best house on the map. Then, there was my friend Ryan’s house, which was like, you know,
slightly below mine, but nowhere near as cool. And then, there was a main
area connecting the two, with a couple of things attached to it. Now, this world was nothing special. It wasn’t something that
we spent a ton of time on, but I would say that it was
one of the first main worlds that I actually continued to play on. Back in the day, we thought this was the coolest thing
ever made, and we were like, “Wow, look at our wonderful buildings.” But, looking back, they’re
not that impressive. So, I walked into my house, with my lovely doors that for
some reason didn’t line up, and I was faced with the worst carpet I’d ever seen in my life. Out of all the possible
Minecraft floor designs, I, for some reason, thought
it would be a good idea to make a red carpet with teal next to it, with a path going to
my beds and my ladder. It’s 2019, we don’t ask questions. But, honestly, we probably should. Looking around, I felt
like something was missing. What was something that old RoboKast, aka LociScopez, aka KastShadowzz would do? And then, I realized, I
have to have a secret room. It’s basically rule number one
of playing Minecraft in 2013. So, I looked towards the door,
and I saw those paintings, and they raised a red flag,
’cause everybody knows there’s always a secret
passageway behind paintings. So, I finally found one, but I realized it was
just an enchanting room. So, nothing too promising. But, I can guarantee, there is definitely a hidden
chest in here somewhere. Now, where would 2013 me put
the entrance to my secret room? My first guess was
definitely under the ladder, but it wasn’t there. So, I figured, might as
well check all the corners. First one,
not so much. Maybe this one? Ah, there it is. I know me like the back of my own hand. So, I walked into the secret room and realized that it
was kind of depressing. I definitely duplicated obsidian, because there’s no way I had that much. And, the other chests
were pretty much empty for the most part. Now, keep in mind, I did load
up the world in creative, but this world was never put in creative. It was a survival world, and I just loaded it up
to get around easier. So, I kept looking, but I never ended up finding my diamonds, so I figured there had to be
another secret chest somewhere, because your boy was always
strapped with diamonds. Moving up to the second
floor of the house, I had like a nice, little kitchen area, with way too many furnaces, and a roof that you
literally hit your head on. Honestly my rating for
this world is going down every second I look at my buildings. The third story wasn’t much better, where I still hit my head on the roof. It was pretty ugly, and
another I duplicated was gold. I could just see myself back in the day, arguing with my friend Ryan, and saying, “No, dude, I swear. “It’s not duplicated.” But, it definitely was. So, I left this disaster of a house and walked out into the
hallway towards Ryan’s house. It was definitely a little
bit better than mine, but for some reason, the
doors still didn’t line up. I guess we just had a thing
for non-lining up doors. Don’t ask why. Now, one thing I want
to mentioned about Ryan is one, there was always cake in the world when Ryan was here. I don’t mean that in the way you think. This man was obsessed
with Minecraft cakes. Like, he did not consider
himself successful until he had a Minecraft cake. So, if he had one, that’s how you know he played in the world quite often, and the number of cakes
represented how much he played. Now, you think I’m
joking, but I promise you, that’s how it worked. Honestly, his house wasn’t
that interesting either, but I just had to throw
this world in the showcase, because it was one of the first worlds that we ever played on. But, like I said, this world
wasn’t really that impressive, so on my scale, I give it a 7.0. The only reason it’s not a 0.0 is because it’s kind of the
world that started everything. So, again, that’s why
I put it in this video. Now, this next world
is pretty interesting. It’s called Fort Loci, and it was made by me and Ryan. Now, my Xbox gamertag at
the time was LosiScopez with like 20 Xs in it. And, Ryan’s was LosiOutdoors. And, we were a clan of like three people, so you know, back in the day, you always wanted to make your own clan. But, anyways, we decided
to build this world for a YouTuber showcase. I honestly don’t remember his name but there was this YouTuber that him and I both
watched back in the day. I think it was like,
something-wolf, can’t remember. But, this guy did world showcases, where he showed off crazy
Minecraft creations. So, Ryan and I had the idea, well, why don’t we just
build something crazy, and then we could be YouTube famous. I’m still waiting on that moment. But anyways, we started spending a lot of time on this world, and we built what we called Fort Loci. To make a long story short, the guy ended up being a total douche, and he like cut me off, and
never talked to me again, and quit YouTube, or
something, I don’t even know. Honestly, I don’t really care, but he kinda did make
me mad back in the day, and made our work feel
like it was for nothing. But, now I’m making this video, so the world is,
technically, now on YouTube. Look at that, problem solving. Anyways, we built this
giant fort entirely by hand. You see every single one of these blocks? They were all built by
hand, by two people. I know, I know, we had no life, but honestly, it’s kind of
cool to go back and look at it, because there was a lot
of work put into this. It definitely ups the
standard a little bit from the previous world I showed you, where I could barely build a walkway, and honestly, I was kind of proud of this. But, the main attraction of this world is this giant thing called Fort Loci, which is this big, wooden structure. Everything here was built by hand, and if you walk inside,
there’s like an armory, and a potion place, and a restaurant, and a bunch of villagers to
represent the army people. And, honestly, we spent a lot
of work on the inside of this, because, again, it was
supposed to go on YouTube. I’d have to say my favorite part of this was the stairway that went up to the top. I spent a lot of time trying
to make that look good, and I was so happy when
it turned out like it did. Going up to the top, there’s like some barracks,
and paintings over the door, like I really don’t
understand the purpose of, but hey, again, don’t ask questions. It also has like a little
banner around the side, and there’s like cannons
watching out over the area, and honestly, I still feel like
it’s a pretty cool creation for like a 12 or 13 year old, at the time. And, the best part about this, we didn’t forget our secret room. If you go around to the side,
there’s like a little door, which I actually couldn’t
find for a while, and that door takes you
into this storage room. For some reason, even though
it was a creative world, we loaded up every single chest with like every item imaginable. Maybe we were going to try to lie and tell the YouTuber we
did it by hand in survival, but I mean, come on, it’s
pretty obvious that we didn’t. Now, don’t ask any questions about Tommy. I don’t know if it was
a human that we drowned, or if it was a fish, or a squid, or a dog that we drowned,
I don’t know, okay? I really don’t know, but for some reason he’s not there anymore. He must have migrated or died. So, again, I don’t know where Tommy went, I don’t know what he was, but
apparently, we had a pet, too. But, this secret room was like the best one we made at the time. It had like a pool
table, and I’m sure Ryan put some cakes somewhere,
because he always, yep, there they are. And, I felt like it was good
addition to this giant fort, because what’s a fort
without a secret room? But, that wasn’t it, and there was actually quite
a bit more to this world. You can follow the minecart
path and go over to a hotel with like a really weird entrance and staircase that goes into a lobby. That hotel had an indoor pool and two rooms that weren’t finished. I guess this was kind of
the thing we were working on when we switched to something else. But, at the end of this world’s showcase, there’s something that is probably the most influential building I have ever built in Minecraft. Oh, Robo, what’s so influential
about a Minecraft bank? This was the bank that started everything, and I mean, literally, everything. I could go as far to say that this bank is the
reason I’m doing YouTube. Welcome to the bank, where you can trade in your gold ingots, diamonds, or gunpowder, for
sponge, which is our currency, and you can use your sponge to purchase houses and shop items. Now, it sounds like a
really simple concept, but I promise you, this bank,
just like the previous world, went on to create everything. It gave me an idea, okay. The bank was one of the last
things we built in this world, and I thought, why don’t
we make an entire world, dedicated, with an economy, and house and jobs, and stuff like that? This bank was what gave me that idea. Overall, I rate this
world a 8.97 out of 10. Now, bank to the bank story. And, after this world was when I had the idea
for the economy world. It was basically the future of what would become
my Unturned RP server, my Minecraft server
that I had before that, and my entire RP series that basically started me out on YouTube. So, again, kind of important. This world was called Town. And, to be fair, I had
like 20 other worlds with the name Town in it, because this, this was an idea that was
refined multiple times, but this was called Town, and it was the start of
the first-ever town world. And, I was revisiting all of these worlds, this is when the nostalgia and the memories really
started getting to me. Welcome to the wonderful
town of New Haven. I guess this was when I
started playing Skyrim. The currency is gold nuggets. You get paid for doing jobs. So, get out of your mom’s basement, and get a job. (laughs) And, make sure you look for
Easter eggs along the way. Go to the town hall and meet up with TLG,
TLGxScopez, with a Z. So, a little footnote here. TLGScopez was also me, so I started out as IGottaPee99. Don’t ask questions. Then, I changed my name to LosiScopez, and then I changed my name to TLGScopez. Now, I don’t know what TLG meant, but I guess that was my other
attempt at making my own clan. This is where the start of
what I said in the intro starts to come into play. Everything was just
left exactly as it was, with nobody touching it, like it’s waiting for somebody else. So, when you first walk
out of the town hall, you come across a couple of shops, and the first one was owned
by a guy named Redneckboy. Think about this, one day, me and Redneckboy
were just playing Minecraft. He had his little shop, I had my town, and one day, we just got off, and haven’t talked to each other since. His items are still in his chest, and this world that was bustling
with people at one point, trading and fighting, and
PVPing, and buying stuff, is just silent. The streets are empty, and nobody’s walking around
trading, and shops are dead. Honestly, I kinda got my feelings right around here, you know? I was kinda sad. It felt like a big part of my childhood was just like empty and desolate. But anyways, there was a
couple different shops. There was some shops for sale. Then, of course, there was
my beautiful TLGScopez shop, where I had all my goods that I totally didn’t bring
in from creative mode. I had all my items in there, just like I was planning to get back on and continue working. It’s just crazy to me. Then, you walk over to the back, there’s like a little village
where you can sell houses. Nobody bought these houses, I don’t think, because they were too expensive and everybody just stole
stuff from each other. But, they were pretty cool houses, and we had the idea of
selling them on the server. And then, I came across
these little mining lots that I guess people could
purchase with gold to mine on, and one of the signs said,
BackhandStew’s mining lot. BackhandStew is my friend Austin, who I’ve known since third grade, and it’s crazy to think
that we used to just chill and play Minecraft together,
and now, he has a fiancee. I did some more exploring,
came across a hotel, that literally had one bed and a door that I charged money for. Why would you pay money to sleep in a bed? Like, there’s no point. Not everybody’s going to go to sleep. So, you’re literally paying money to sit in a two-by-two room with a bed in it. Like, come on Robo, aka TLGScopez. Come on, you can do better. There were a couple other
shops, some enchanting rooms. The bank, and all types of other things. The bank was a pretty
interesting thing to look at, because going on from
this to the next world, to the next world, you can
tell how much it’s improved. This bank was literally just
a wooden building with doors and places to get your money out, but you’ll see how it
changes in the next one. And then, on the other hand, was the jail, which was literally just
a stone brick building with some little iron doors
and bars for people to sit in. The way it worked was that
if you broke one of the rules or you stole something,
you got put in jail. And then, finally, on the far
side, outside of the town, there were two houses. And, before I even flew over to these, I realized exactly what they were. These were going to be
the governors mansions that me and my friend
Ryan were gonna build. I pretty much finished mine, and he was in the middle
of working on his, when we just suddenly
stopped playing on this world and moved onto a new one. At this point, my building
skills have gotten a little bit better, but
again, nothing too crazy. I mean, I don’t even doors on my house. Then, I flew over to Ryan’s
house and I realized, like I said, he just suddenly
stopped working on it. One day, he just decided, “Hey, we’re gonna go on a new world, “and I’m gonna leave my doors
backwards for some reason, “and not fix them.” And, it just happened. Overall, I would give this world. Okay, my scale’s getting
a little confusing, ’cause I don’t really know
what I’m basing it off of, but overall, I would give
this world a, uh, 8.64. We’ve got two more worlds, guys. Two more worlds, and I’ll explain how this all connects at the end. The next world is another town world, but this time, on our timeline,
my name is now KastShadowzz. KastShadowzz, the first part of that name sure does sound pretty familiar. Boom, story time. You see this ugly skin? Yeah, I thought it’d
look like a robot, right? This is when I first got my
capture card, and I figured, “Hey, I have this skin
that looks like a robot, “and my name is KastXXShadowzz, “so let’s combine Robo and Kast, “and make my YouTube name RoboKast, “and then we’ll make
Minecraft videos on Xbox.” It was a genius idea, and
that’s the actual story of how I got my YouTube name. Anyways, this town world was a little bit more
improved than other ones. The other ones were kinda just like, “Oh, you get money from mining, “and then, you can use it to buy stuff.” But, this one, there were actual jobs. You can kinda see how
the rules and regulations started to kinda of form world to world. The first world was an idea,
that was the Fort Loci. The second world was kind of like an idea turned into a concept. Oh, let’s make an economy. And the third world is the actual foundation of that economy. How are we gonna make money? By making jobs. We have the guard who kills
mobs and catches animals. We have the farmer who
owns the farmer’s market. He farms and sells stuff. Obviously, that’s what a farmer does. We have the handyman,
we have the enchanter. We have the blacksmith and smelter, and that was pretty much it. Then, we had me, the dictator, the guy who literally made all the rules. But yeah, that was the job sign, and the whole concept of
this server, like I said, was pretty similar to the other ones. We had shops like my clan mate, he name was Jawed, KastXXKilla. You know, great, great names. Basically, the number of Xs you have is the amount of clout you have. So, honestly, we all could
have used some more Xs. But, the difference with this world was that there wasn’t
really a set building theme. We just experimented to see
what would look the best, and somehow the bank was even a downgrade from the previous one. But, again, trial and
error, we’ll figure it out. There was a town mine, which really doesn’t make much sense, because everybody would be
mining in the same area, which all the resources would be gone. And then, we came across
The Shop of Awesomeness, again, owned by me, Mr. KastXXShadowzz. This was kinda like me
general store-type thing. I had a farm to the side, and that’s pretty much
where I sold all my items. The fact that people didn’t just come in and like mine through walls and steal stuff honestly amazes me. I don’t know why they
didn’t because, today, if you had any sort of world like this, that would probably be the
first thing that happens. But, like I said, this world was pretty
much taking the ideas from the previous world and
trying to implement them into a way that was organized, even though I feel like
it was less organized than the previous one. Overall, the idea was progressing, but this world is nowhere
as good as the last one, and I give it a 7.4. I feel like I said 7.4
for the first world, but it’s just a number that comes to mind. So, it’s been a long video so far, but all of this rambling
isn’t for nothing. Yeah, there’s a purpose
to all of this, right? So, all of these worlds
lead into the next one, which then leads me to
this last world, okay? This is the full town that we had always tried
to make, perfected. In this town, everything had a theme. We had a bank that was
surrounded by bedrock. We had a battle arena. We had a job board. We had houses, and shops,
and all types of exploration, and Sparta pits that you
could kick people into. We had a working jail, we
had farms, we had everything. This world was the manifestation
of all of our ideas from the start of that very first world. This world was probably the world that I spent the most amount
of time on, of any of them. Everything went so smoothly, and I’m not gonna go
around touring everything, because, again, it’s
pretty much the same thing, just re-skinned and a lot
nicer and more organized. But, it feels the same. It feels like a world that was left behind by everybody who was in it, and it’s just sitting there ever since. But, there is one thing
that I have to mention. Remember how I was searching for those secret rooms
in the first two worlds? Oh, this world, the secret
room was on a whole new level. When Bill Gates wants to
design his secret room, he’s probably going to come
to me after this video, because this was the best
secret room, ever, okay? So, if you go out from
the town a little ways, there’s this very obvious mountain with jungle trees on top of it. You know, doesn’t give away anything, and if you fly over there, there’s a lever in the
side of the mountain. This lever opens up a trap door,
which goes into the bunker. Now, in the bunker, you can
walk straight to that door and get through, or can you? If you step on the bottom
set of pressure plates, TNT falls out from underneath
you and fall into your death. But, there’s a secret lever
in this secret bunker, that opens another secret passage. This secret passage leads you
into another secret section, which had its own secret section. Seriously, we had a secret
room within a secret room, within a secret room. And, you know what Ryan’s
addition was to this world? Of course, a secret trash can. That is the most Ryan thing
I have ever heard in my life, because we all know, like I
said, Ryan loves trash cans. In the back of our secret
room within a secret room within a secret room was a secret lever. And, you know what that lever opened? Another secret room. If you drop down into the pool of water, you get into the bottom of
the secret room sections, I guess you could say. This was the secret man cave, and it was complete with a lot of cakes, refrigerators, and even another trash can. We had the man cave fridge and a computer that could only be used
for man stuff, winky face. Not gonna lie, I probably didn’t know what that meant at the time, but Ryan, you were
corrupting my young mind. You may think we’re done, but oh no, we’re just getting started. You see that painting right there? You wanna know what’s in
that painting right there? Oh, you guessed it, a secret lever. You know what that secret lever does? It unlocks another secret lever, and you know what that secret lever does? It unlocks the door to the secret room. It’s been a front the whole time. This is the real secret room, even though there’s nothing in it. We literally built a
secret room for no reason. But yeah, this is what you
call high-tech security, and the chance that somebody
would manage to get in, not fall in the TNT, and find all of these levers,
was like basically zero. This was the real deal, my friend. But, other than this, there wasn’t that much
difference in this world from the previous ones,
except, like I said, the fact that it was more organized, had some structure, and looked better. But, this would only be the start of what would become of our ideas. It’s really cool to
look back and see ideas and what they’ve turned into, and this idea turned into something bigger than I could ever imagine. After this is when I
branched out to Minecraft and I opened up a server
that was a Towny server, ’cause I like the idea
of towns, apparently. And, this Towny server was
called Mincenomia Towny. I don’t know where I got the name from, but it was something I was going for, a medieval-type thing, I guess, but it was a town server,
with jobs and ranks, and all kinds of crazy stuff, and it is actually what made me my first bit of income on my own. I set up donations on this server, and it kind of made me like, it wasn’t a ton of money, but at the time, it felt
like a large amount of money. It’s probably like $150 total, but still. Like, I actually made money
from playing Minecraft. This is around the time
when I rebuilt my server and started making videos on it. And, I made a Let’s
Play of my Towny server. This Let’s Play was my first series I’d
ever posted on YouTube and it led onto what would
become my channel right now. From this point, I used the money that I made from the
server to upgrade my PC, which I then start playing Unturned on. I think you guys are seeing
how this is connecting now, and why this is such a big
deal for me to go back over. Me playing Unturned would
lead to me opening a server, which would eventually lead to me getting my first 100,000 subscribers from playing on that server. It’s honestly pretty crazy
to think about all this, because building one bank in a world that was supposed to get
me on YouTube and didn’t allowed me to start this entire
thing that I’m doing now. I would honestly have
to say that that bank is the reason why I’m on YouTube today, because if the bank didn’t
lead to all these town servers, I would never had the idea for Mincenomia. I would have never had the
idea to start YouTube on it, make the money to upgrade my computer, and then move onto Unturned. There’s no telling what
I’d be doing today. Now, this video’s
definitely much different from what I usually make, but I think I got the
point across pretty well. The entire purpose of this video was to show that while everything changes, video games are still there for you. They will always be there for you, and they will always be
a way to pass the time. And, if you really enjoy something, you never know what it could lead onto. I enjoyed building these worlds, and now I’m making YouTube
videos for a living, which is something I would
have never dreamed of before, but I hope you guys
enjoy this type of video, and while it was a little bit different, let me know in the comments if you would like to see
something else like this. Anyway, guys, that’s going to be it, so I hope you enjoyed. I will see you guys next time, and peace.
