Title: Building Contest
Post by: hiimcody1 on May 07, 2020, 12:52:12 PM
We are holding a building contest! The winner's build will be moved to spawn and placed somewhere accordingly. If it doesn't fit in spawn, we will instead place a warp sign to it and region it off for you (so probably not wise to live in it!)

The theme for the building contest will be....

Other-worldly!

Your build should be something that you wouldn't encounter in your travels, something foreign to Minecraft. Whether that be a glimpse into the ethereal plane, or a Lovecraftian horror from the depths.

Some general rules you must follow while building:

The build deadline is May 31st at 12AM PT. If you wish to participate in the build, please submit your build by the deadline (https://franticme.com/index.php?topic=84.0). We will be opening submissions up later this week.

We are still working out build judges and will post once we have decided on how to handle that.

After talking with the mods, we've decided to introduce some in-game prizes for the contest winner.

1st place will receive 16 diamond blocks, or an elytra, whichever they chose.
2nd place will receive 8 diamond blocks.
3rd place will receive 4 diamond blocks.

Is it permitted to have a separate viewing structure/fabricated hill to view our build at an optimal viewpoint?

I talked with the headmods about it and the stance on it is that you are free to build something like that, however builds will be scrutinized from all angles most likely.

Will the builds be judged in both daylight and darkness? I know for some of us, light plays a factor in the design and adds dramatic affect, but then its easier to critique the design by daylight.

Also, would it be safe to assume this will be judged without texture packs?

The standard MC texture pack (not developer textures) will be used for judgement.

Builds will be viewed from multiple angles and at day/night both using a command that can make it appear night/day on demand to the judges.

Judges will be:

General_Dakkar
Cryptix56
Zoogoo40

I will not be judging as my partner is entering.

So how strict is the 50 x 50 rule? Like is it disqualifiable if a minimal part of your build that is only really to blend it in with it's environment is outside of the 50 x 50?
