    August Network Build Competition

    [​IMG]
    Hey everyone! Its time for another Build Competition! Last comp, we didn't have a theme and we all saw some incredible builds! This month we will have our first Theme: Tree House! Create a build using this theme and submit it to the Build Competition. All rules and requirements are listed below. One of the rules we want to clarify is: The use of any mods or programs that loads schematics or guides on where to place blocks are NOT allowed. Using any of these mods will result in a disqualification. We like to see that you put thought and originality into your build which will stand out to us much more. When you are ready to submit your build, make sure to reply to this post in the format below!


    Build Competition Rules and Requirements!

    Start Date: August 1st
    End Date: August 31st Midnight EST
    Theme: Tree House! Build or grow some trees and add your house or fort!
    Server: Builds MUST be made on our servers. You have an entire month to gather materials and build something to submit!
    Originality: We want to make sure that anything you built, is original and made by you, please don't submit anything you copied or schematiced.
    Coordinates: Please provide the server and the coordinates to your build so the judges can review your submission!
    Submission: You may only enter one submission! You can have more then 1 tree house as long as it all fits together for your submission. If you have been working on a tree-house type build by yourself before the competition started, feel free to finish that build and enter!
    Participants: Your builds must have been created by you only! No partners! You CAN have people fund your builds by giving you money or supplies, but they CANNOT build with you!
    Pictures: Please add a picture of your build with your post on the forum for everyone to see if you are able to!

    Please don't submit a build that is inappropriate, we are a family-friendly network!

    Winners will be decided at the end of the competition, with the 1st place winner earning top prizes and getting their build featured on Twitter!
    All prizes will be determined based on what server you play on! 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places available!

    Feel free to add a small description of your build!

    EDIT: RULING ON CREATIVE SERVER vs SURVIVAL MODE BUILDS: The creative server was added after this competition started. We have decided that you must specify in your submission if you built it on the creative server or not. Builds on Creative will be its own category separate from the Survival Builds! So yes, for this comp there will be two 1st places!

    I know it's been already debated and decided upon however, as someone who is going to enter the build comp and has spent hours slaving away for materials, i dont think it is fair to allow the creative server to participate into the build comp, at least not for this one. What are your thoughts?
    @Maggie
  3. Personally, I think Creative should be allowed as materials are easily bought. And there are many advantages and disadvantages in creative compared to the rest of the servers. So, in conclusion, I say it should be allowed :D

    What disadvantages?
    The fact i spent hours filling 3 dubs with spruce leaves, which would take someone 3 left click or the fact ive had to struggle w/out flight, which takes someone two presses of a button to fly, or maybe its the fact i needed to actually work for my resources instead of pressing E.
    It should not be allowed in this competition since people starting doing build completely legit such as me, ive spent hours building a tree, that doesn't even have leaves yet and im already contemplating if the time spent is worth it.

    I added this to the formal post, but going to comment it here as well.

    tldr: Builds on creative and builds on survival will be separate when judged. So build on whatever server you want!

    It says in the rules: "Server: Builds MUST be made on our servers. You have an entire month to gather materials and build something to submit! " Yes it must be built on a Journey Server.

    Shoutout @Porytune for letting build next to his base!

    I took alot of pictures of my build so i will split it onto 3 parts.
    Pre base build ( Just the tree)
    Base built ( Day)
    Base build (Night)


    Also i am going to write a description for each section.

    Pre base build.

    Description:
    These pictures not only capture the tree in its raw form, but the way the tree forms into the ground with its roots and how it blends in with the surrounding, by using spruce leaves.
    Photo 1: We can see the tree form a far, towering over the surrounding buildings.
    Photo 2: The tree from the back side, showing its enormous size by completely blocking the view of the houses.
    Photo 3: See Photo 1

    Photo 4: Here you can see it from another perspective, this one show off the roots of the tree and how well the base of the tree, the mount if you'd like blends into.
    Photo 5: Shows off the branches which eventually developed into leaves
    Photo 6: Shows an entrance in the tree, see if you can find it.
    Photo 7: This shows a fire outside, which i thought was a great touch it makes the tree seem more alive.
    Photo 8: This is a picture of the branches from inside the tree.

    Description:
    These pictures capture the tree after building the base inside, which is now the tree current state, I show pictures of the outside to capture how subtle the inner base it and how compact it is not only taking advantage of the space but hiding it.
    Picture 1: Captures the tree from above.
    Picture 2: A view from the side showing how hidden the base is from afar, a place most people would be.
    Picture 3: Shows the top layer of the base, a double chest and two beds with an amazing view.
    Picture 4: A side on picture showing how much the base blends into the tree.
    Picture 5: This shows the inside of the tree, at the very bottom with the elevator and the fireplace.
    Picture 6: ^
    Picture 7: Shows the bottom layer of the base, having 5 chests and a bed, also shows how the base was build within the tree structure adapting to nature instead of changing.
    Picture 8: This is off the middle layer of the base, showing the path to the top layer and also the beds there and the chest.
    Picture 9: Shows off the top layer from a top view
    Picture 10: Second layer showing it from another angle and the stairs.
    Picture 11: Shows the bottom layer from another angle, this time inside the tree in a corner, ( Beneath the stairway ).
