      Shulker Boxes are actually good for something.

      There is no starter map for the contest? Are you kidding?
      What the hell do I do now? How to size this thing?...
      Well damn

      I'm screwed.

      That's a fair point, although often with very large builds in a short period of time means quality suffers. I would suggest that a limited amount of time would also limit you to an amount of space. While you're right about the fact that that means that some people can do larger builds than others, in my opinion it doesn't matter much as I'll take a quality build over a larger but worse looking build any day of the week. and knowing where to stop is a challenge in and of itself, facing deadlines and knowing your limits can present a challenge for even the most experienced builders. The main problem I have with starter maps isn't limited space as I also think that it offers a challenge, my gripe with starter maps is that they do not offer full creativity as was my original point. If a starter map is literally a 16x16 chunk area and a theme for the contest, in my opinion that's great, but if you have a starter map that's an island or some other piece of terraforming it limits the potential of what someone could do with the theme. Say the starter map is 2 mountains, every single person using the starter map will have those same two mountains in their creation, and in my opinion the best thing about these contests is the creativity and the way different people can explore different themes while posing an interesting challenge, and in my opinion a preset starter map that's forced on the people participating can stifle creativity too much. The one starter map that was pretty good was the snowball one, as it presented an interesting challenge to be creative using that particular shape and object, and I would like to see more of those, but I'm tired of the generic island and theme contest.




      Either way, interesting discussion! :)

      Starter maps limited the building space. I'm fine with being able to design that area however I want. It's just that with unlimited space a person building for 5+ hours every single day will pull so far ahead of people with more limited time that it's harder to compete.
      If you have that much time on your hands and unlimited space, you can always add more features, introduce additional themes etc.
      With a limited space, you tend to hit a wall at some point where you need to either redesign sections or just "finish up" the build with no reasonable gains per hour of time invested.

      When it's 10pm and the parents of your friend text you to essentially tell you to ditch your friends and meet new people.
      Amazing.
      Genius, actually.
      I might just go ahead and do that.

      Huh. I guess you could ignore their parents then

      The problem is that I'm very happy with the friends I have. They have helped me a lot. I value them greatly.

      I have been putting tiny blocks in different places for 6 years to see this happen.
      Thank you.

      Somehow there is now a super awkward typo in the last post and I can't edit it.
