    Hey Applecrafters!

    We are running a new BUILD COMPETITION which has just started. This competition will run until SUNDAY the 28th of May! The challenge is to build a minigame lobby for use in all future minigames. All contestants will get WorldEdit during the competition. The competition is open to all players who are RANGER players and above (including donors).

    The winner will win ARCHITECT RANK permanently.

    DETAILS:
    The build must be a floating island.
    The theme should be similar to spawn (jungle/leaves/trees).
    You can add extra features (parkour/hidden rooms/etc).

    TO ENTER:
    Go through the red minigames portal at spawn and do /plot auto to find your plot. To get back to your plot after you've left it you can do /plot home <number> from the minigame world.

    Any questions, comments, suggestions, issues etc just post below. :) Otherwise, good luck!

    Some questions:

    1: Should we design for only the current mini-games or a possibility for many more (like portal entryway areas, I don't want to leave unused portal entryways if that is undesirable).

    2: Are we allowed to incorporate other types of biomes near these portals (like a transition through the pathway)

    3: May we include comments on certain areas with signs or other commented variants that are not part of the final build, but rather a different possibility?

    4: Do we request you to look at our plot specifically, or will all plots be considered?

    That's it, thank you for your time.

    Some answers!

    1. There's no need to add portal entryways or anything similar, games will mostly run via commands and if needed I'll tweak the map to add places for NPCs (I'd prefer to do this myself as I'm not exactly sure how I'm going to do it yet). It just needs to be a place that people can run around and chill out in while waiting for the game to start.

    EDIT: The best example I could give is Mineplex's lobbies which have the colored sheep you can click. This kind of system is closer to the one we'd use rather than portals. :)

    2. You can incorporate as many biome types as you like. :)

    3. Comments are fine, I'll be going through the plots during the week so I should be able to provide feedback during the build process.

    4. All plots in the world will be reviewed, and the best plot will be selected.

    @Keme_Yata Your build looks way better in your texture pack than default, just something to consider! :p
