Anyone interested in a simple design competition on our frontier server with prizes?
I used to watch Home and Garden TV with my wife, though with the new kid, tv time is very minimal.
There is a show called Design Stars, that is pretty cool to watch:
HGTV Design Star Episode 2: My White Box Challenge Scoop | Design Happens
The show had a very interesting challenge where the contestants had to do their best with an empty white (box) room.
I'd like to do something like this in TOG Minecraft, if anyone is interested in playing.
I am going to build Villa M2 by Jonas Lindvall, which is a cool house by a Swedish architect. If anyone is interested in playing a Design Star Challenge, I will build a building next-door that uses the white box setting from the tv show.
So the contest will go something like this:
Each player gets a white room to do anything they want INSIDE of.
I will supply each contestent with a chest filled with random items, blocks, materials.
Every player gets the same items to use. No outside items may be brought in. I might provide a furnace or 2 to use and a crafting table or 2.
At the end, the winners will be chosen by 3 judges based on Originality, Creativity, and overall Design.
Prizes will be simple: Diamond tool of choice for the winner, Gold block for second, and a set of iron tools for third. Maybe I can work some other prizes in later.
Right now, I am only concerned if people are interested in playing. I'll have the build done by the first week in October and the competition can take place the second or third weekend. I'd think 2 days or so for the competition would be good considering the differences in time zones.
I am just brainstorming some rules, but other than the 2 day time limit, only using the items in the chest, and not going outside of the actual room are the only ones I think will be in place.
Anyway, post something here if you have any ideas or want to play or judge.
If this works, and I cannot see why it would not, maybe we can do it a few times and the overall winner will get something really cool.
