You have one life... Live it well...
July 2015 MapJul 01, 03:34 AM by RubblePile
The map has been reset for July.
Also note that death bans will reset on July. 16th, 2015 at Midnight UTC.
XP Scaling is not active this map, building a grinder will probably be the best way to get a lot of XP.
The main world and nether are both 10000x10000, so the borders are +-5000 blocks.
Fighting in spawn is disallowed, even if combat tagged. You'll be blocked from entering spawn if you try.
Don't combat log: you will die immediately if you're combat tagged and you leave the server. Wait until your combat timer runs out before leaving.
The map uses custom terrain for the main world, there's many cool areas to explore and a lot to see.
Good luck everybody!

Spawn Competition July 2015Jun 18, 04:15 PM by kTdnG
As you may know we will be resetting the map for July, 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 28th June 2015. 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 July 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.
