    Doctor Who Client Mod Open Alpha Release! #DWCM #iMine4WHO

    CONGRATULATIONS! You are one of the first people to find this thread. That means that you are also one of the first people in the entire world to BE ABLE TO PLAY DWCM! Many of you thought it was just an April Fools thing...it was not! DOCTOR WHO CLIENT MOD IS RELEASED TO OPEN ALPHA! Share your excitment on social media and be sure to use our official hastags #DWCM #iMine4WHO!

    PLAY IN SURVIVAL MODE!
    CUTSCENES & TARDIS WILL NOT WORK IN CREATIVE!
    Welcome back to TheiKings "Daily" Report everyone. Today is April 1st 2016 which means that it has been 4 years, 4 months, and 9 days since DWCM was announced. Oh, also we are now in Open Alpha which means....you can download The iKingsSGC Hub & Doctor Who Client Mod!

    After many years of dedication & an almost unbearable amount of failed release dates we are FINALLY ready for you to being testing DWCM as it enters it's Open Alpha phase of development on today, April 1st 2016. Over the years we have reached many points where we thought we were ready for an open release only to discover that there was a game breaking problem that we needed to address. This is not one of those times!

    Last week I shared the comprehensive Stages of Release - 2016 Update with the iKingsSGC & Mod Division community. A week before that I totally revamped the entire look and feel of the iKingsSGC. All of this was an attempt to get ready for today, April 1st 2016.

    The last few months have been particularly trying for not only myself but the entire team. After isteinvids and I decided that today, April 1st 2016, would be our deadline we doubled down on our attempts to make the April First deadline a reality. Lack of time due to real life responsibilities was major hindrance and some of us were forced to work on development assignments that we loathed. We pushed through all those obstetrical because we wanted to get this labor of love out to the public, albeit without the vast majority of incomplete features that have been shown over the years.

    It is extremely important to keep in mind that DWCM Open Alpha is NOT IN ANY WAY a finished product. Open Alpha is comprised of as much completed and stable features as we could safely fit in without compromising play-ability or the user-experience. We understand that as of today, April 1st 2016, it has been several years since we announced this project and many of you will be expecting a grand complete masterpiece. DWCM has been re-written from the ground up several times after being decimated by updating to current versions of minecraft. The decision was made to leave out unstable, incomplete or just plain ugly features to make the user experience a favorable one. Many of these features remain in the Closed Alpha version and will continue to be fixed or redone. Many mobs will be getting complete model updates. We also made the decision to remove several work in progress planets that we are not ready to reveal yet. There will be some incomplete planets in the alpha that you can travel to The Grim is one of the most complete.

    Now that disclaimer is out of the way let's discuss what IS in DWCM Open Alpha. Basically Open Alpha is everything you could possibly hope to get out of a TARDIS in Minecraft. Every core TARDIS feature you are expecting and even quite a few that you're not like the TARDIS Artron Power System (T.A.P.S) is in the Alpha. Basically DWCM Open Alpha is exactly the Doctor Who Experience you have been wanting from us in Minecraft, just with a few of the things you've seen over the years still in testing. Everything you will want to test like TARDIS Flight, Time & Space Travel, Bigger on the Inside TARDIS, The Time Vortex, Physics, Sonic Screwdrivers, Chameleon Circuits, TARDIS Desktops, Modeled Console Rooms & Cutscenes & the beginnings of a story system are all in game. Oh and did I mention that there the Official DWCM soundtrack volumes 1 & 2 are in game as well!

    Now let's talk about how you can finally get to play DWCM starting today, April 1st! Installing the Doctor Who Client Mod on Mac OSX, Windows & Linux is extremely easy. Here are the steps you will need to take
    • Head on over to http://www.Hub.iKingsSGC.com
    • Click Download and wait for it to finish
    • Open The iKingsSGC Hub file & wait for it to install.
    • Once The Hub opens you need to log in. Enter in your Minecraft account details and click play, this will unlock access to the DWCM Open Alpha for your account.
    • There are two ways you can select a mod to play. Either in the login bar you can click the text that says select version or you can directly goto the Mod's Tab. In this case when the Mods section opens you will see a few options. One will be the DWCM banner & the other will be if you want to intall vanilla minecraft. Eventually there will be a wide variety of mods you can select from this list.
    • To play DWCM you would click the DWCM Banner & you will see the Open Alpha graphic, click that. (Closed Alpha Testers & Mod Division Staff have additional versions to choose from. These are hidden from anyone without access to these versions.)
    • Once back on the main page you will simply click Play again & The Hub will bring up a graphic of everything that it is installing!

    I like how there's no big obvious button, that sounds like iKing's style.

    It's not exactly a complete feature. Emir might be making changes to make that known in an update (that will automatically install) later today.

    Creative will be removed eventually. It is a cheating game element that could be used to abuse the story progress once it is ready. We left creative in right now so people could build console rooms but we will be making a custom version of creative mode that wont be destructive to the DWCM gameplay. As it is creative mode actually breaks some features so we don't generate the TARDIS while in createive AND the cutscene doesnt play while in creative. Survival is the way to play.

    This would be perfection, but i am experiencing my expected amount of bugs, aka random crashes.
    Oh, gam crashed while typing this. That's new.
    Other than the crashes, this is perfection.
