Big Summer Project Contests : A Journey Through Time Official Thread!

Hello everyone!

Summer is here and vacation is near! This thread will provide a common place for discussing both "A Journey Through Time" project contests. The team and solo editions have unique prizes and an increased entry period of 6 weeks!

The theme is shared between the two but there are differences mainly the obvious team vs solo rules but also the prizes offered.

The contests are in celebration of kicking off the summer and in collaboration with the Buildcon 2018 community event (June 8th - June 12th). We hope you have fun at Buildcon and maybe even apply something you learn to the projects you enter into these contests!

I hope it's OK that even tho I am building by myself, I will apply to the team contest (because I like the team reward more and I'd like my YT channel advertised :D)

Hey just wanted to clarify one of the rules, for 3d conversation is it no 3D models period, or are sculpts proven to be your own work allowed?
This is related to some map making tools like WorldMachine and WorldPainter were most of the work is done outside MC but is your own work never the less.

No restriction but it does need to be downloadable so members and judges can experience it for themselves. Doesn't need to be uploaded to PMC but does need to be uploaded to a file hosting service and linked to on your project.

Sure, it doesn't even have to be a story based on Minecraft at all. You are free to interpret the them "A Journey Through Time" in your own way. If you don't think others will "get" your idea, simply help them understand in the description of the project.

Hiya! So the goal with our team was to do a topographically accurate 1:1 map of Oʻahu and build it out. However I am now realizing that with the tallest point above sea level is 1222.248 meters so 256 blocks will not allow for that. We cannot use any height mods as far as I understand the rules. So maybe we are limited to a 5:1 ratio for the contest?

Correct, map should be viewable with vanilla Minecraft without having to install third party mods in order to properly load & explore it.

I hope working with a 5:1 ratio allows you enough freedom for what your hoping to accomplish. Sounds awesome

thanks! Ya I think it should still be good. Just means that we are at least 7ft taler than your average Titan? at 3:1 I was saying we would be Frost Giants.... not sure what is exactly 10 Meters tall though so I am still looking for a good reference point jajaja. Maybe something in the stories here... certainly no shortage of enormous entities afoot.

We actually have 2 maps we are working on. 1 is he Oʻahu map, 5:1 scale and topographically accurate, the other is the entire Hawaiian Kingdom, 16.5:1 scale and topographically accurate (Mauna Kea is supppper high above sea level so that makes the Kingdom map scale a lot different). Would our one team submit two maps or would we have to field a separate team for each map? If so can there be a mix of players that are on both teams and some only on one team or how does that work? I wont spoil our build strategy entirely by getting into the details of what we are building but I think I have shared enough to get the answers I am looking for...

Sorry last question from me. I've not updated pc in a while so I'm still using integrated gcard. I get lighting bugs aplenty and increasing block distance to 20+ melts the hardware. My in-game screenshots won't have much depth and have those horrible dark shadows littered about.
If I include enough sc-shots to give the impression of moving through the world to cover everything will this suffice even with light glitch?

Sorry about your integrated gcard woes. Do the best you can with what you got. If the lighting glitch is really noticeable, please include a note about it in your project description for judges to consider. Thanks!

Yes, you can create your own story so long as you're thinking about "A Journey Through Time". If you don't think others will understand how it's related to the contest theme, you might spell it out in the description just to be sure. Judges know that everyone has freedom to interpret the theme in their own way.

Can i reuse my little tiny schematic and modify it in the project? If not, then rebuild it block by block in a different scale and different itself?

Yes. We just don't want people taking old work that was never intended for the contest in the first place and submitting it as if it was. It also sounds like your using something that is going to be part of a larger project and isn't the main project itself.

Is it too late to join these contests? The buildcon? I would like to enter members of my summer camp and wider server network into both of these. Looking into buildcon right now... looks like we are a bit late but hoping maybe we can still jump in...



UPDATE:
Oops. Sorry for the n00b questions ;-) I asked before really reading everything. I am psyched to check out this Minecraft Utopias Masterclass event coming up from the buildcon, hoping to catch the Twitch stream even though it starts at 2am and my significant other already told me to go to bed! Maybe if it is archived I can catch it later if I miss it. In any case I thought I should share on the thread here the Twitch stream I did upon coming across the news, which I also just finished uploading to the YouTube. I am excited to see what participants in our server and online summer camp come up with for the Journey in Time contest!!! hasta prontito

As a 'project', it needs to be a minecraft build. Any interactive elements are completely up to you.


I'm not sure if it being a parkourmap will be included in the judging, though. I guess that's a good question to ask.

Ooooh this will be a challenge! Looking forward to struggling to create something good again!
Also I am assuming terraforming tools are allowed such as World Painter?

Thanks! Also one more thing, does it directly have to be a journey or does it just have to be time related :>
