It's that time again: a building contest!
Leave behind cities, caves, rails, mountains, even creepers: this time, we're going to SPACE! We're breaking away from the standard medieval / pseudo-modern style of Minecraft to focus on the modern or future, realistic or with a sci-fi twist.
What you decide to build is up to you, although it obviously has to be space-themed. Will you do a spaceship? A space station? An asteroid? Even a mini-planet? That's up to you to decide!
* RULES *
The contest entries must stay within the confines of a single, 50x50 lot. You own the entire height of said lot, and can use the reference bedrock blocks to find their exact borders. This time around, you can not build on the borders themselves. What use you make of the space available is up to you: you do NOT need to fill it up. Outer space consists of a lot of emptiness, and so can your entry. Besides, several potential designs will need a lot of length, but possibly much less depth. The walkways are situated on a single level, but space isn't set on a flat plane: you can build higher or lower!
You are free to work in teams should you desire. In that case, you can either work together on the same lot or each take adjacent lots and merge them together. You can also build more than one entry if you feel like it, although only one will be judged for the contest. If you build on more than one location, please clearly mark which one is your entry.
Due to the possibly larger building scale involved, you have FOUR WEEKS to complete your entry. The contest begins now and ends on October 18th at 23:59, Eastern time.
Pick a lot, place your name on it, and start building! Be creative!
* PRIZES *
All good contests need fitting prizes. Here is what is available this time around!
First place: $20 Amazon.com giftcard or $20 US bill (your choice)
Second place: horse owner and breeder kit
Third place: one super bow + stack of arrows, courtesy of Squid's Cove
Random person: surprise participation prize!
The judging criterias will be how well the theme was respected (space setting), the originality of your idea, and the proper use of the various materials. Strict penalties will apply if your construction spills outside of your lot.
* BUILDING DETAILS *
Due to the special nature of this theme, a new world permanently set to night time is now available. To get the proper view in this world, Amasia, it is highly recommended that you turn off the display of clouds. You can reach this new place from Central's TransHub, which will lead you directly to the site of the contest.
Some leaf platforms have been added to make your life easier while building, but they will be removed after the deadline. Since those were temporarily spawned in, please don't keep them or incorporate them in your builds. You can ask me or any op to remove them if unwanted, or if you're done. The bedrock corners will be removed at the same time. The dirt pathways are also temporary and in the process of being replaced with something more appropriate for the setting.
To save yourself from falling into the void of space and losing all your items, keepInventory is permanently set to true: dying for any reason will not cause you to lose your items!
Edit: All set, thank you!
