Starter map created by Maaki

All participants must start with this map and create a Mythological Hybrid Creature

You must use the map provided without removing/destroying the existing smooth Diorite platform.
  • You must use the map provided without removing/destroying the existing smooth Diorite platform.

  • You can change the material of the smooth Diorite platform to compliment your build but do not change the size / design. example: Changing Smooth Diorite to Red Wool.

  • Here's an image example of changing the Diorite platform material.
  • You can remove the existing terrain. aka. the mountains.

  • Your build must be 100% original and not an old build or plagiarized build from somebody else. Remember, originality is key!

There are more rules, read them here.

Have fun!

It is allowed to destroy the existing terra but are there any restriction on building a new one as far as it stays in the diorit circle and doesn't destroy it?

Yes, if possible, build them underneath. If you must build them far away due to size restraints, go ahead since we will not be judging commands block visual presentation.
looks nice

I would love to try, but my giant animal building skills are pretty much nonexistent, though I am awesome at coming up with backstories and other things. They should do a thing where they create a creature and we have to create a habitat, backstory, food, population, etcetera, about the animal!
Agreed on both points, same, whatever you want to say! :b

Question: Define Mythology? Does this mean things like Greek, Norse, etc. Old religious mythological creatures, or is it the more flexible term, where-in any myths or stories count, like for example Lovecraft?

Can I build a Shoggoth?!?

It's flexible. It could be Winnie the Pooh + Nyan Cat + Spaghetti Monster. A Winnienyaghetti Monster.

''You must only build within the terrain provided. You may not add or remove anything significant outside that area.''

Does that mean I can't make wing that reaches outside of the plot? Or do they mean to not make the plot itself bigger?

"Can I extend past the platform?
Yes, but not to excess. The majority of your build, greatest %, needs to be on / over the platform. For example, if you're building a octocatiraffe, a hybrid octopus, cat, giraffe and you want to have the tentacles hang over the edge of the platform.... go ahead.

The rules state that we cant use premade work. Does that mean we are all disqualified before we even start building? Considering the starter map is premade www.planetminecraft.com/project/red-gradin---fantasy-village/

No. I reached out to Maaki, creator of that map, and they made the starter map. I credited them on this page and on the contest page. While yes it is premade, we are not going to disqualify everyone. The starter map is a way to have everyone start on a even playing ground. The map alone is an excellent platform for presenting a unique build. We will not be judging the platform or the mountains. Makes sense?

One question, can I change the Diorite to another material? This wont affect in any way the shape of it :)
  • Cyprezz

  • High Grandmaster Cyborg
  • March 14, 2017, 5:46 am
Hmm. Hold off on that since the rules state not to change the Diorite. We would have to alter the rules and that one in particular is slippery in terms of losing sight of the starter map. Your particular proposal seems fine but it's an area that could make it difficult to decide how much platform modification is allowed. I would hate to see amazing builds getting disqualified over technicalities / debates over platform modifications.

The current platform was meant to be generic enough to not affect the build one way or another while still giving everyone a presentation stand / size to build on. A single common element across all entries helps unify, identify and judge them. That said, perhaps, as you asked, allowing just the material of the platform to be changed but not the size / shape would be clear enough to avoid accidental DQ's while allowing builders like yourself to make the platform compliment the build.

What do others think?

You said that we can't touch the Diorite but can I change the shape of ONE of the little stone circles on top of them?
  • Cyprezz
  • Admin / Lead Developer
  • Level 68
  • High Grandmaster Cyborg
  • March 15, 2017, 10:28 am
I actually altered that rule day after launch to allow material changes to platform. You'll see that in description above and on main contest page. Example of one member changing material but not the overall platform design : https://i.gyazo.com/217da6147c7945630bd77a1d60bad185.jpg

Yes, you can change one stone circle on top. The rules allow you to build outside / over sides etc of the platform as long as it's not to excess. Majority of the build should be on / focused over the platform. I bring this rule up because it should cover things like altering one stone circle. Basically, we want to be able to recognize that the platform is from the starter map.

Can I add a custom texture pack embedded into the map? Or can I only use normal textures?
  • Cyprezz
  • Admin / Lead Developer
  • Level 68
  • High Grandmaster Cyborg
  • March 14, 2017, 5:13 am
You're proposing a entry that is out of the norm. You can have a custom texture pack but 75% of the screenshots need to be with the default texture pack. I realize for your particular idea a custom texture pack may be more of a requirement to experience it properly but it will already be difficult to compare / judge against the majority of entries that will be builds. You will need to operate within the rules. While I'm excited and I'm sure others will enjoy checking out & playing your entry, I'm uncertain about how your entry will be judged. It may help if you also build an arena / custom battle zone on the platform that compliments the command block mythological hybrid boss. I can't speak for the judges but it will be up to them on how they judge this project. The contest theme will focus on the hybrid and less on the environment though. They may feel that the build of the boss is what should be judged and so all I can say is, have fun and do it for yourself & fun of others and less for placement / contest status.
The contest rules say no texture packs
