Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. – Oprah Winfrey
Hopefully you've all had a chance to settle into the new map because it's time for the first creative contest of the year. This contest will not have a straight forward theme, but rather the goal will be to highlight some of the new blocks of MC 1.8 in any type of build you choose. The plot size will be 51x51 with the default height limit. The start time will be Friday the 23rd at 19:00 Central time (0:00 Saturday GMT) and will end at the same time 2 weeks later.
1st – A stack of prismarine crystals
2nd – A stack a prismarine shards
3rd – A small chest full of potions of water breathing and some words of encouragement
Leave comment under this post to reserve your plot. The 32 available plots are marked with a letter and number designation as well as highlighted with a dyed wool or ore block type. Go to the second floor of the contest map spawn for a full listing.
In other news our Dear Leader Uzumi has declared trains to be the transportation of the future. Currently tracks 5-16 are working. Each primary destination will branch off into one or more secondary destinations. Once the train station is complete, the /tpa and /ptp commands will be disabled. The /home and /spawn commands will remain with a 2 minute cooldown time.
Additionally the post office in spawn is open, and anyone can now select their own mailbox.
