Sand "Castle" Build Competition - Friday, June 30 - Sunday, July 16

9 posts in this topic

What better way to spend a hot Summer's day than at the beach, with your toes in the sand and the waves lapping at the shore? Inside! Away from the burning sun, biting flies, and sand in your shorts, playing computer games with your friends!

For this challenge, you'll be building with sand. Sand castles, sand houses, sand sculptures, sand creatures, sand whatevers - if you can build it with the materials provided, we will judge it. 

When
First build day: Friday, June 30, 2017 at roughly 7:00pm EST
Final build day: Sunday, July 16, 2017
You may join in at any time through the competition, up to and including Sunday, July 9.

Where
/server event - location to be 'unlocked' on Friday evening (Merga's time)

Rules
You may build whatever you like (so long as it falls within the server's rules) with the materials provided in the chests
You may not build in teams
No additional resources will be provided (other than shovels/picks which are freely available)
Please use the sign to put your name on your build

Judging
1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
- Most traditional builds
- Most creative builds
- Most inventive uses of materials
- Judge's picks
- Player's picks (done by poll)

As always, participation prizes will be given to everyone who enters a completed build. Winners will be announced around Sunday, July 23 - possibly longer for the "Player's Pick" awards.

FAQ

Q: How do I join?
A: Choose a plot and ask a mod to give you trust in it. If mods are busy with other contestants, please be patient. 

Q: What do I do if my pick or shovel breaks? Or if I need more chests or water?
A: There are signs at the center that say "shovel," "pick," "chest," or "water" on them. Hit those.

Q: Is it OK if I use this thing from the last competition I competed in?
A: No. Please use the INVENTORY CLEAR sign on the red arch at the center.

Q: Can I use the chests in my build?
A: No,  the chests are for storage not building blocks for this challenge.

Q: Can I have a plot for my alt?
A: No, 1 plot per person.

Q: Can you rest my plot?
A: Nope, you have 2 weeks - more than enough time to tear down mistakes.

Please ask all questions about this event here and not on the server. This post will be updated with all answers.

Prizes? For a competition? I don't understand...

 

 

(Of course there are prizes, still finalizing details. As always, player skulls will be given to all participants.)

The Sand build challenge has begun!! Merga and SteelyEyed can give out plots.

Reminder: You can build anything with the items provided. It doesn't have to be a castle or even a building.

Is there a possibility of having your plot reset?

No. You have 2 weeks to finish this. More than enough time to pull down mistakes.

The build challenge is still taking place however my weekend has just gotten busier and I may not be online as much as I'd hoped.

If you would like to join in the build challenge and there is no one online to help get you set up, please either let a helper/mod/admin know and ask them to get my attention or message me here. 
Once I've assigned you a plot I will send you an in-game mail on SMP to let you know the location.
