    Hello all you builders,

    As the vibes of Easter fades away, the easter egg hunting comes to an end, bunnies, chicks, and eggs are no longer relevant. And as April Fools closes its doors, we can finally move on from seemingly harmless horseplay to more serious matters. Without further ado, it's time to introduce the long overdue April Build Competition!

    This month's contest theme is Theme / Amusement Parks!

    [​IMG]

    We're looking for decorative game booths, carousels, claw machines, themed, detailed rides, and stomach upsetting roller coasters! A ghostly theme park? Futuristic? As long as it relates to the theme, your imagination is your limit. Anything can be made possible with effort! But remember it's all about quality, not quantity.

    Enter to win some thrilling prizes - everyone has a chance to get their hands on these when entered!

    Prizes:
    Third place
    : 1 extra map and $10 to spend in the Brawl store.
    Second place: 2 extra maps and $15 to spend in the Brawl store.
    First place: 3 extra maps and $20 to spend in the Brawl store along with the special build contest winner medal!


    [​IMG]

    Connect to MinecraftBuild.com and type /create to make a map, then get building! If you've used up all your maps, feel free to ask myself or any available staff member (including Builders) and we'll give you member perms on a flat or void map. Maps we give you may be archived after the contest.

    Once you’re done, head over to the Build Showcases subforum and post a thread using the application form below. Make sure to change your prefix to "Contest Entry"!

    Submission application format:
    BUILD CONTEST VIII ENTRY
    Build Name:
    Builder(s):
    Map ID:
    Pictures:


    You may work in a team of up to a maximum of 3 players, including you. Prizes will be split as equally as possible between teammates. Please also keep in mind that only the builders you mentioned in your application will receive a prize if your build is part of the top 3.


    [​IMG]
    • Plagiarism is not allowed; including copying other players’ builds from other worlds with WorldEdit.
    • Do not build anything that would be considered inappropriate or vulgar.
    • You may copy old creations that you built previously. Keep in mind that anyone who helped out with them will only receive a prize if they are mentioned in your application.
    • Build specific rules and general rules still apply.
    • You may enter only 1 submission for the contest.
    • You may not use schematic importing. Your contest entry must be made by you (and/or your team) on minecraftbuild.
    • You may not use external programs (such as worldpainter, mcedit, etc) to give yourself (and/or your team) an advantage over others. You must build your contest entry on Minecraft Build.
    • The recommended size is 100x100. This is to ensure that you are not building too small so not enough detail is present, or so you don't feel you have the need to build to the map boundary. Do not worry if you go over or under the limit, but remember that building more or less will likely not affect your final score as long as the build is whole and complete.

    [​IMG]

    The deadline is: May 20th 23:00 UTC
    Countdown


    All entries must be submitted HERE before the deadline. Please see the timezone converter to find out when the deadline is for you. All entries will be judged after the deadline. Winners will be announced a few days after the deadline.


    [​IMG]

    This competition, a new judging and ranking system will be used. Due to not having a proper ranking and grading system in the past, we have decided to introduce one to regulate how builds are judged, and to help reduce the potential biases taken place. Although it remains subjective, it is still a useful measure to have in place, and can help you know exactly what we're looking for.

    Here are the criteria in which the build submission would be judged:
    Originality - How creative and individual the submission is.
    Detail - The attention to detail, how well the build is executed, how much effort is put in, etc. (please do not over-detail, ie: spamming stairs and slabs - this is not what we mean by detail)
    Look - The overall look of the submission; everything flows well and builds complement each other.

    Each criteria is marked from a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the least, and 10 being the best. Each build team member will rate each criterion, and the average ratings for each criteria will be shown. The sum of average marks of each criteria will be added up to determine the rankings/winners (the more overall points, the higher the ranking).

    Tiebreaker: If two (or more) builds have the same overall points, the build team members would then vote on who they believe should be first/second, etc. If a tie arises again, further discussion will take place.

    **Keep in mind that this is the first time we have ever implemented this, and the system is subject to change depending on how this goes.


    [​IMG]

    Once you submit your build for the contest, your map id and creator(s) name will be listed here. Feel free to visit other maps but make sure to leave if they ask you to do so. Report any signs of plagiarism to a staff member.

    • You may not use schematic importing. Your contest entry must be made by you (and/or your team) on minecraftbuild.
    • You may not use external programs (such as worldpainter, mcedit, etc) to give yourself (and/or your team) an advantage over others. You must build your contest entry on Minecraft Build.
    Just curious but, how do you enforce this, or do you just go off the expectation of people being at least somewhat honorable?

    First one we can't really enforce, second one is easy to notice from a build.

    The main reason for disallowing schematic importing is to reduce the potential plagiarism taking place. If the schematic is imported from elsewhere, it is possible in most cases to trace back and find out if it's an original build or not.

    As @Lekosa1 said, the use of external programs are pretty easy to detect as well.

    Can definitely see what you mean, especially for stuff like worldpainter lol... Tends to have a certain "look" (at least if you are a nubcake lol)

    Not to necropost but I think this is the first (and only) build contest I am entering just because theme parks are something I'm actually interested in building.

    I'm predicting that we will have more entries since this isn't as broad ranged as previous contests.
