Nice ideas guys. I am trying to make something as a day long challenge, where you are your own judge. However, standalone events are cool too.

The shipwreck idea is good. I can imagine hiding one in a cave and one underwater, both somewhere near the settlement site. Perhaps there could be treasure for the first to find it and a pile of gravel to indicate how many "points" you get for finding it.

As far as the standalone events, the "bandit" one might be good, because Australia has its fair share of legendary bushrangers (a type of highwayman for the non-Aussies). The "greatest" one is Ned Kelly who is known for hist metal helm and breastplate. Perhaps someone can think of something to do with him and his Kelly gang (who wore similar armour). Perhaps an archery showdown at the hotel preceded by some ambushing environments.

Good ideas, keep them up.

A designated "bush-ranger" decked out in iron armour, Ned Kelly style.
or a gang of, to make it to a chest, loot it and bring it back to their hideout, with limited food to restore health..
Small teams could be picked, and the rest of the population can decide to aid them or hinder their plans..
Maybe a jail, with a time penalty could apply to those caught..

Something Crocodile Dundee-related perhaps? But unfortunately there aren't too many crocs in minecraft.

Ok, my ideas for the Kelly gang
  • Kelly Gang is 4 players, all in supplied iron armour with 4-8 food each, and a bow and arrows
  • Colonial constables is 4 players, with supplied bow and arrows and 8-16 food
  • Settlers are in whatever they can make themselves. It must come from the settlement site (and be made there).
  • Kelly Gang has a predefined hotel hideout
  • "Treasure" is placed in 3 chests. One is inside a building, one is in a minecart that travels around a powered track and the other is on a mining site.
  • The idea is that the gang has to pinch one or more of the treasures, and get back to their hideout. If pursued, then they may fight the opponents. The hideout door may be locked and the hideout may not be destroyed/burnt during combat.
  • Each round will start with the gang at their hideout, and all constables and settlers within the settlement, until they see a gang member.
  • Not all the gang need do the raiding. Others can set up ambushes for pursuers.
  • The settlers may aid the constables during the pursuit, or hinder them by attacking them.
  • The gang wins if they reach their hideout and kill all pursuing constables. The constables win if they kill all the gang members. Each has only one life. The stolen treasure is shared amongst the victors. The settlers win any treasure held by a gang member they kill (their reward) or a share of the gang's treasure if they kill a constable (provided the gang wins).
Anyway, those were my thoughts. This way, there will be multiple treasures to keep watch over, one of which will be on a moving "train". The members of the gang and constables can change each round. The treasure can change too. It is up to the gang whether they raid during night or day and dropbears, bunyips etc will still be a problem.

Any improvements or different ideas?

Kelly gang sounds great. Would suggest multiple rounds if over fast, and that would give four other players the chance to be the gang.

As for other sports, how about the entire Division inside an arena vs 20, 30, 50 then 100 zombies

So, anyone want to volunteer to run a Kelly gang event on Thursday? We can make you a Mod for that day and you can finalise the rules and prizes and decide who is in what team.

I still plan to make a list of challenges for those who want to have an Australian-themed day of construction (and survival, coz everything in Australia is deadly, except some of the sheep [1]).

Perhaps you could install VoxelSniper and make a map of Australia?
