Surprise! Two weeks later, my ridiculous labors are complete. What could it possibly be?! It's a McDuck money bin, of course!



It's not quite like the old Bridgeport money bin that I made years ago (I can hardly believe we've been at this game for years). This one is much larger, and it has a far more interesting interior, IMO. In fact, as I've been building it, I've come up with a small list of challenges to show off its features. Some of these are pretty easy, but some may take some looking around. Please don't try to cheat by building or removing anything to solve these. Making changes like that will likely break things. You can solve all of these by normal means.

McDuck Money Bin Challenges!
  • Find the furnace room on the maintenance floor
  • Use the restroom
  • Enter the private vault elevator and dive into the gold vault
  • Gain access to the roof
  • Climb atop the dome's $ and breathe in the fresh, high-altitude air
  • Jump from the ledge of the roof into the front garden waterfall
  • Find the cursed, corrupted treasure room
  • Find the forbidden treasure of the Great Duckenkhamun
  • Escape from the corrupted treasure room (if you think you're stuck, you can always "/back" out)
The doors to the bin are still closed at the moment, and I was thinking of having a grand opening tomorrow (Sunday) afternoon around 5 PM Eastern. I've built fireworks launchers into the dome (and cheated in a crapton of pretty rockets), and I plan to set them off when I open the place up.

I'm looking forward to running around this thing. I can be on from about 5 to 5:45 or so tonight. That should be fun too!

Well that was a blast! Almost everyone who joined completed all of the challenges within an hour.

I tried to capture some video, but I forgot to throw MC to fullscreen for the first few minutes. I'll post a link later if I end up throwing it on youtube. [edit: I'm uploading now… should finish around 9PM Eastern!]

It took YouTube a while to process, but it looks like it's finally ready with the 720p version available:

Thanks again to 709, turtle, bb, RS (long time no see!!), and Owen for coming to the grand opening.

I had an absolute blast running around that place! You did an awesome job on that bin Brad. The cursed room is the absolute best!!! Loved the detail in there.

Took me a long time to figure it out, but I finally got to the dome. I made it to the roof, but couldn't figure out how to get on the dome. I did it.

Here's the clip I made of the opening:

Dellphi, iJak and myself took on the challenge!

We did all the stuff on the list!
  • Find the furnace room on the maintenance floor
  • Use the restroom
  • Enter the private vault elevator and dive into the gold vault
  • Gain access to the roof
  • Climb atop the dome's $ and breathe in the fresh, high-altitude air
  • Jump from the ledge of the roof into the front garden waterfall
  • Find the cursed, corrupted treasure room
  • Find the forbidden treasure of the Great Duckenkhamun
  • Escape from the corrupted treasure room (if you think you're stuck, you can always "/back" out)

Here are some screenshots I thought to grab.

But we have questions.

Spoiler (click to toggle):

What do the levers and buttons do inside the corrupted treasure room???
NOTHING happened and we couldn't find WHAT they were operating, though we DID hear noises

I misjudged my jump, but Jak nailed it and Dell nearly nailed it

They are there just to throw you off the trail of finding the forbidden treasure of the Great Duckenkhamun.

Throw us off? We found the treasure and went nuts trying to figure out what we were missing!
should have at least made the trip wire do something

Clearly it did do something... exactly what I designed it to do!
