Secrets Inside the Box

by Wuzzy » Sat Oct 06, 2018 23:07

Inside The Box is one of my favourite servers. It also has a couple of nice secrets. In this thread I like to collect them. ALL OF THEM! :D

WARNING: For obvious reasons, this thread will contain a ton of spoilers. Do not read ahead if you do not want to get spoiled. You have been warned!

+ Soft spoilers: This only tells you what secrets there are
+ Hard spoilers: All the secrets I know of so far


If you found any secret, please post them. :) If you think you have a clue to something, but did not yet quite solve the mystery, that's also nice. Wild speculations are also fun.

Maybe one day the collected secrets will be posted on the Minetest Wiki to make it all more readable. Maybe.

Big thanks to my slow internet. I caught a glimpse of this before a mapblock loaded
Image
activated nexus block, a few torches. and a tunnel that goes down and then stops. Possibly unfinished?

And about the meeting room: It says 'Erase the board after meetings'. It's not erased. So wouldn't that mean the meeting was still going on?
Something might be invisible...

Actually, in the meeting room, there are three switches. If you look at your screenshot with the brightness, there is a switch next to the whiteboard. So that makes three switches: Two turned off, and one turned on.

As for the broken box with no entrance, the entrance does exist. Go to the tutorial and look straight up right next to the teleporter. It's not a very helpful entrance, but it is one nonetheless.

Another, rather useless, secret is that you can go to the buildings with the ratings above them in the Play section and go to the one with the flat eyes and mouth. From there, you can jump to the top of the tutorial area, although there's nothing on top of it.

Of course, something might happen if you toggle the correct switches in the library under the Build section, but I doubt it.

That is quite an amazing fine, Lone_Wolf. But I also guess it's just an unfinished section, especially since there is already a Nexus block placed.

As for the broken box with no entrance, the entrance does exist. Go to the tutorial and look straight up right next to the teleporter. It's not a very helpful entrance, but it is one nonetheless.

That path does not lead you to the huge broken box, however. You can replay the tutorial to get teleported to the place you went to after getting introduced to the Main Islands. You might remember … The downside is, you have to replay the ENTIRE tutorial. But you will not teleport to the large broken box, but something else. Look around carefully. From up there, you can see the broken box, too, but I have found no way to reach it.

Well, what I mean is the place in the nexus where you go to replay the tutorial, not after the tutorial. The entrance is straight up and impossible to get up, but it is the only path there that I can see.

Oh, now I understand! That's interesting. I never noticed that drop hole.

Speculation: Maybe you get teleported to The Broken Box after completing the tutorial in a special way, or finding a secret exit, or something. There are quite a few secrets in the tutorial, after all, and maybe not all of them have been discovered yet.

Hmmmmm …

I think that the "entrance" to the broken box is actually an exit.

Something might be invisible...

Maybe the people that used to be there (in the story of Inside The Box) had to leave before they could finish...maybe because of an emergency...

This thread is awesome. It may just be enough motivation for me to add more content again - I've been really really busy with work, but we're headed into the darker winter months and I will have some more time to sit down soon, I hope.

Well, if you look at some of the later tutorials and the broken boxes in the nexus, that actually seems rather probable. There are quite a few things to support that claim.

Tutorial Secrets

by Wuzzy » Wed Oct 10, 2018 12:56

I am starting to write down the first Tutorial secrets. But first, something about terminals:

+ Hints about Terminals
+ Secrets of Tutorials 1 and 2


Hint: To re-enter any tutorial, use the /enter command and the number in the list of boxes.

Alright, everybody! I've noticed a few updates to Inside the Box! First off, the meeting room has changed. There are more lights behind bars inside, and the whiteboard now says "You forgot to erase the sign, again!"

Also, in the Create building on the very top floor behind one of the green create teleport panels, there is a pressure plate that doesn't seem to do anything. I listened when I pressed it but I didn't notice anything.

I haven't checked out the tutorials yet, but they also might have some updates.

It seems sofar kept his word when he said that he might start making some new content again ;-)

Awesome! I'll go back on Inside The Box again today, then.

Actually, the pressure plate was removed, so it was likely a mistake.

I so loooove this topic :). Things are being added, don't worry, and there is much, much you haven't found yet. Of course, we won't tell you what -- keep searching!

I know there's a secret in box 260. But I'm not exposing it … yet. But I give a hint: When you have already finished the box, it should be rather easy to figure out … with an axe!
