April Spawn Competition
Mar 24, 05:42 PM by RubblePile

Hello everyone,

As you may know we will be resetting the map for April, so we're holding a spawn contest again.  If you'd like to enter, post either a download of the world edit schematic or the world save in this thread accompanied by some images of the spawn by 6:00 PM Eastern Time on 30th March 2014. We will then start a community vote and the spawn with the most votes will be used as the spawn for the duration of the October map. We will also be giving away two free lives to the winner and one free life to the runner up! (If a team of builders wins then only one of the team may redeem the life.)



Remember the spawn area is 400*400 so your spawn shouldn't be bigger than this. Most spawns don't get anywhere near this big though.
Try and give your spawn exits in each of the 4 directions and don't give a bias to one particular direction.
There should be a portal (or portals) somewhere within the spawn.
Leave space for the admins to add signs with the rules in a place visible immediately from the spawn point.
Don't use excessive redstone.
Don't have any "cheaty" blocks like anvils or enchanting tables in your build. Crafting tables are fine.
Build whatever you like but remember that admins reserve the right to make any changes to your spawn they deem necessary if it wins the competition.
If your spawn doesn't win but still gets plenty of votes then you're welcome to enter it into the next map's competiton. We also reserve the right to use any of the spawns submitted at a future date.

Good luck!


Deathbans have reset for December and Other News

For all who died last month, welcome back to the land of the living.

Also, since this is the last month on the current map, we've increased the amount of experience you get from killing mobs so it's easier to get experience to enchant/repair your gear.

On a sad note, Ocelotpotpie has resigned as (Sys)Admin and cbarber has stepped down as Mod/Plugin developer. Their contributions to the server are innumerable and they are missed. Thanks to both of you for all your hard work!
