    Hi PMCer's! We're thrilled with the response we've received from the Procedural Metropolis Project Contest! Gheppio updated the FAQ section of the contest description as well as the official forum thread to include the most common question's we've received. If you have a question, it's likely answered in the updated FAQ so please take a moment to read it :)

    We're seeing some great entries so far and are excited to see more! Happy building!

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Can I build more than six houses?
    No, at the moment 6 houses, and one submission, per person is the limit.

    Do I have to build interiors too?
    It’s highly recommended.

    Is there a specific style we should build in?
    The city generation will create paved roads, so anything "Contemporary" will make sense. We wanted to keep the theme as open as possible while ultimately generating cities that will make sense.

    Why are there slab borders and building limits in general?
    Slab borders are needed for house spacing, that’s why you must leave them, and the air above them, as they are. They are on two sides only, this is correct; you can build up to the edge of the other two sides. It’s suggested to fill the surroundings of the buildings with the same slabs because that's the city's pavement, in this way the builds are better integrated into the city layout :-)

    What about water, is it allowed?
    In some rare cases it may cause problems when houses are placed by the structure blocks; anyway, water is allowed. If water presents glitches in the rotated instances, it will probably glitch also in the final city! If possible. Try containing water pools only with solid blocks, and not with stairs or slabs only; they're the ones which glitch the most. If not possible, replace glitching water blocks with ice that it will melt down after your house is placed. If there are still some glitches or problems, they’ll be corrected before their integration in the Infinity Matrix.

    Are we allowed to incorporate command blocks and redstone into our builds?
    It's better to avoid complex circuits, while they should work fine, I'm afraid that if too many people build complex circuits that "do stuff" in their build, than this will make the machine much heavier to run on low spec PCs.

    I don't want to risk that some people aren't able to generate their cities with your builds included because of this problem! If you want to do a special lighting system with redstone or a teleporting elevator with command blocks it’s ok, but try to stay contained and absolutely avoid automatic machines! Your devices must be user-activated!

    What about the streets? How are they made? I’d like to make a parking lot or a building with road access…
    The roads are 7 blocks wide, 3 blocks per lane and 1 for the centreline. Roads are made of the grey terracotta already present in the building sites, at the same level, pavements are made of the same stone slabs of the 2-side border, at its same level.

    If you’re building something that needs a road access (e.g. like a parking lot) place the road-sized entrance/access aligned with the "entrance here" passage for 1x1, 2x1, 1x3 and 2x3 plots. For 1x2 and 2x2 instead, put it on the middle of the left or right chunk. In this way I can reprogram roads so that they connect correctly to your car entrances when your builds are placed in the city!

    Are the items in chests, furnaces, dispensers, etc. saved in the Infinity Matrix too?
    Yes.

    Can I use paintings, banners, custom player heads etc.?
    As a rule of thumb, if something appears correctly also in the rotated instances, then it can be used.
    Paintings and item frames sadly can’t be used for now. Banners and custom player heads work flawlessly.

    Does the front door have to function, or can it be an open glass door?
    It doesn't have to necessarily be a door! It's just a constraint that sets where the front of the building is, so that the engine makes your builds facing towards the roads correctly. More like a "the door should be here" indication, intend it as "people will access this area arriving from here". After that you can put the entrance you want, of even something else! For example, in the largest plot, you could even put two small buildings on the left and right side and a small plaza in the centre, that would work too!

    Will my builds appear together in the final city?
    The city will contain as many submissions as possible from participants, so there will be houses/buildings from different people close to each other, a city from the PMC community!

    Any generated town will be different and potentially infinite, in some of them your builds will be closer, and in others more distanced, and every building integrated in the Infinity Matrix will have a defined probability to appear during the generation Process. Consider all that is being created here as a single neighbourhood!

    Did Gheppio design the procedural Infinity engine by himself?
    Yes.

    We'd like to take some time to say thank you for all the awesome stuff you all share with the community! We know how hard all of you work and how much creativity and time goes into every creation posted on Planet Minecraft.

    Unfortunately, there are some people that would like to use your hard work for their personal or financial gain. While it can be exciting that someone wants your permission to share your content, it's worth taking some time to look into where your content is actually going. Sometimes, they don't even ask for your permission. Not cool.

    The most common dishonest requests ask to use something you made for a different version of Minecraft or to re-upload content to another website or app without fully explaining how your content will used. Sometimes these are harmless, open and honest requests by people wanting to promote your work with credit to a community that speaks another language. Sometimes the person just wants to personally use your creation in another version of Minecraft or highlight it in a Youtube video. What's important is that you know how your work will be used and that proper credits are given. Sometimes the main reason the person wants the content you spent considerable time and effort to create is to make a profit off of it and could care less about crediting and promoting the real content creator, you.

    Here are a few things you can do to protect yourself and your creations:

    Step 1 : Documentation
    Upload your creation to Planet Minecraft as soon as it is ready and before you share it with anyone else. Doing this gives you something super important that proves you were the one who made what you're sharing: a date and time attached to exactly when your creation was first shared. This timestamp and any other documentation helps prove ownership.

    Tip: If you don't want to share your post publicly, you can still protect your content with this step! Create your submission but uncheck "Publish Live". This will draft your post so only you can see it!

    Step 2 : Consider a License
    Register your creation for a Creative Commons License. You might be familiar with this already as you might have seen it on other posts already. It's a simple step that allows you to express exactly when and how your creation should be used by others. You can get started on creating your CC License here: https://creativecommons.org/choose/.

    Note: legally you are the owner of any skin or texture you make regardless the license you may put in place for it. Posting to PMC for timestamp reasons is a great way to protect and prove! Technically, the right to any skin or texture is the same as a painter having the right to their painting. Painters use canvases and so do you! Just in a different medium! There's a great article on The Informed Illustrator regarding digital art & copywright law that's worth reading if you need clarity on this subject.

    Step 3 : Knowledge
    If someone asks you if they can use something you made, do a bit of research! Something as simple as visiting that person's profile here or on their linked social media pages may help you determine if they mean well. Be cautious of new members reaching out to you who have empty profiles, no linked accounts and no posts here. Ask questions when people request to use your work such as where it will be posted, how it will be credited and who will see your work. Make sure you are getting credit for your own work and that it won't be put behind advertising links, sold or behind paid access.

    Step 4 : Common sense
    Listen to your gut! You have every right to say no and you don't have to have a reason why. Saying no doesn't mean you're selfish or mean. If something doesn't feel right and you think someone might be dishonest, don't give them permission.

    Step 5 : Raise Awareness
    Learn more and get involved in protecting your work and others. Share these steps. Helping others understand how to protect themselves can be just as important as protecting yourself. Awareness sites like https://stopmodreposts.org/ have been helping this cause for years!



    We hope that this helps you protect yourself and your work. Your creations are valuable and so are you!

    Happy Crafting,
    Planet Minecraft Team

    Oh, hey! Cyprezz and I are busy harvesting honey for Minecraft's Honey Bottle Challenge!
    The goal is to reach 50 million honey bottles this weekend. If we do, Minecraft will make a donation to the World Wildlife Fund to help save the bees!

    🐝

    Pro tip: make sure there are no bees in the hive before collecting. Learned the hard way!

    Now, back to work! Who's participating?!

    Happy Friday PMCer's! Have you read our most recent interview with Gheppio? If you haven't, you should! He's created something unique and amazing - self replicating technology. His most recent project, Infinity Project, includes a self-building metropolis: a real functioning terraforming Redstone device.

    Meaning: His technology creates new Minecraft cities at the click of a button!

    Interesting, yeah? TOMORROW he will be giving a tour in the Minecraft world he uses as a laboratory for the Infinity Project. He will show you how all the city's components function, how they are designed, & other cool stuff!

    During the event, feel free to ask anything you want in the Twitch chat; like any guided tour, he will be there to answer your questions in real time. We're sitting in on this one! Let's show our support as a community and watch this together!

    The stream will be on Saturday 12 at 9.00 EST (15.00 Central Europe time)


    TLDR; Live stream of an epic technology. TOMORROW. Be there or be square!

    Special Streaming Event Announcement!

    Hello everyone!
    As you probably know, my last project Infinity City includes a self-building metropolis: a real functioning terraforming Redstone device. This is the current apex of self-replicating machines, a technological field that I've basically invented myself in the last years :-)

    Are you curious to learn more on how they work and do you want to discover how self-building cities are designed?

    If yes, I have great news! I'm announcing a special streaming event on Twitch:
    it'll be a guided tour in the Minecraft world I use as a laboratory for the Infinity Project. In the stream I'll show you how all the city's components function, how they are designed, and also some other cool things!
    Special guest PMC will partecipate to the tour too, don't miss this unique event!

    Interaction is important! During the event, feel free to ask anything you want in the Twitch chat; like any guided tour, I'll be there to answer your questions in real time :-D

    The stream will be on Saturday 12 at 9.00 EST (15.00 Central Europe time)

    Let me know if you're interested in participating or if you can't; in that case don't worry, I'll upload the stream on YouTube, so you will still be able to see it.

    See you soon,
    -Gheppio
