We hope to have more regular contests, and community events. Here we go votable build contest #2!
Overall the contest is pretty simple. You are the designer creating the most epic livable space / baller mansion within a small area ( 36 by 36 blocks ).
You may use any map or environment to build the house on, even building a new mansion in your existing server of choice is fine.
The structure of the house itself must be no larger than 36 by 36 blocks.
All blocks are allowed ( with the exception of command blocks through we may allow in next build contest )
To submit a build, create a new project page on votable and add a minimum of 3 pictures, you can also add things a video / gif / or even lore. build presentation is important!
Feel free to create a project page even if not finished and update progress overtime submissions will not be judged until may 30th.
When complete add a link in the comments to your project page.
Builds must be original creations and created and completed by 1 person. Hopefully we can do team contests in the future.
You may submit a max of 3 builds.
Any build height is allowed including underground basements so long as the house structure stays within 36 blocks by 36 blocks.
Must be built in a base version of minecraft - the build itself must not rely on any mods in implementation. However you may use a texture pack to showcase your build within the project page.
The submitted builds will be ranked based on creativity, originality, and overall aesthetic and in consideration of the housing theme overall livability.
Winners will be determined by two factors
60% of the weight will be determined by team of selected VIP builders who each get to cast 1st 2nd and 3rd place votes.
and the other 40% of the weight will be determined by community voting.
will add to this as people volunteer to become judges for the contest. Requirements are 3 original project posts, or moderator status within a active votable community. send a message or leave a comment if you'd like to be a judge.
@Miikkelson @PhDPhil @everbloomstudios @nannehessel @KaosMC @jseek @asterious @enigma @nils_wagner @Flowdude @AbsentFuture @Kevinbrags
Along with everlasting glory unique votable awards will be assigned to first, second, and third place winners.
Additionally the votable team is pitching in $65 to the prize pool to hopefully help bring in more entries.
Code block here!
My submission: http://www.votable.com/p/MyH
well there goes my chances lol
there might be a prize for funniest / worst build :)
lol worst? they are all beautiful to me :)
Here I made an export for you and btw this build is amazing => https://www.kubity.com/p/sVwFmh
Alright, thanks I appreciate that! :D
Hey Guys ! You may want to use this exporter http://www.votable.com/p/MnW for showcasing your builds ! You will have a 3d export of your build that is playable on the browser so anyone can check your awesome Luxury houses !
hey can you have them put it in votable
At the end of the export process you will get a link that you can easily shareable on Votable. But I don't think you can embed the 3d model in the Votable interface... Does this answer your question ?
Yes you can put the embed code in Votable ! I am gonna do the export myself for all the builds in the comptetion so you guys can see what the final result is.
Hey there, I would like to enter the contest with this house: http://www.votable.com/p/MBf
Votable Cribs! (TM)
hah it would be really awesome to see some cribs style videos showcasing the builds
challenge accepted. EDIT: I eventually decided against making a Cribs video. Might make one later, but have run out of time with other things to do. Sorry!
this is my favorite episode of cribs :) http://www.cc.com/video-clips/g544ez/chappelle-s-show-dave-on-mtv-s--cribs----uncensored
cuz it's BALLER
I frickin love that omg
I'm trying for the first time to build i'm nervous
Good luck! And don't worry if it doesn't turn out 100% like you wanted to, practice makes perfect!
thanks dude :P
thanks for all the entries everybody, submissions are now closed! will be putting together a thread with all the entries and sending out judging ballots tomorrow!
Ooooh, I'm in! I must make a thing for this! Oughta be fun :D GL to all who enter!
Here's my entry! Enjoy :) http://www.votable.com/p/MG4
As promised ! Here is an export of this build => https://www.kubity.com/p/EAR8uV
I'm in, I think... Does it have to be a modern house? Or can it be something like Blenheim Palace?
any style is cool! basically whatever makes you happy as an awesome place to live in.
Looking forward to judging some amazing builds! Good luck to all the builders!
I will try but please understand that I am a college student so I need to do my homework assignments first. It will be close to wednesday before I can submit my build and if my connection is strong.
You still have a week (and 3 hours) to go.
My entry: http://www.votable.com/p/M1a
My Entry is done! Here :D http://www.votable.com/p/MEy
Time to start building! Will definitely build something if I get time over.
So can I build a garden outside a 36x36 house or is it just the house?
feel free to build a garden or alter the terrain outside the 36x36 area if it helps the project blend in with the surroundings and presentation. though what will be focused on when rating the entries is the structure within the 36x36 area :)
Awesome ^-^ Glad somebody asked this
My entry :D http://www.votable.com/p/MCW
As promised ! Here is an export of this build => https://www.kubity.com/p/zEV4K8
woah, thanks man! This is cool :D
Awesome! Looks great.
I was thinking of entering but i have a lot going on this month. Good Luck to everyone participating, hope to be in the next one. :D
This is a really cool theme! I can't wait to get started.
Look forward to seeing your entry!
here's my entry for the contest http://www.votable.com/p/MQu
My contest entry: http://www.votable.com/p/MVA
I think some of you know me from my yachts. Soon you'll see a new side of me :P. I am building an Italian villa for this. I have a tip for everyone... listen to music that relates to your build when you are building it. For example I am listening Italian folk music :)
Italy is a magical place :) was lucky enough to visit the amalfi coast a few months back very beautiful. I think my favorite houses there were in Tuscany though.
My villa is going to look like the ones in Tuscany :). My mother lived in Italy in the 80s. Her boyfriend knew the Italian Formula 1 driver Lella Lombardi and they visited her villa a few times. So now my mother can help me with this project :P
Two points of clarrification needed: 1) the plot can be 72x72 (36x36 radius area) but the structure is only 36x36. So, landscaping is an authorized enhancement? 2) i don't see a deadline
the deadline is may 30th. perhaps radius was the wrong word, the build limit is 36 blocks by 36 blocks whats inside the 36 by 36 block area is what will be judged.
50 euro? Lets do this! :D (and i'd like to help deciding winners next time, i think i know more about builds then the other judges :))
ahh sorry its US so I think that translates into something like 45 euro ( correct me if I am wrong here somebody )
Ah i see, but can i help judging? :)
for sure will add you to the judges list
Cool, can i still join the contest then? :P
lol prob best if the people responsible for selecting winners are not also submitting entries
Then i wont judge, i want that 50 dollar lol :P
cash money money money makes the world spin
Here's my entry! This was super fun ^-^ http://www.votable.com/p/MZx
Isn't this actually technically Votable's 3rd build competition? (First was 1.9 Snapshots, second was Dimensions). I only just thought about this, and am wondering if this is intentional, or everyone collectively forgot about one of the competitions?
Yes but programmers count from zero ;)
ahh your totally right! might be too late to change it. I like @asterious response too much time looking at code. or we could say its build contest 2 version 2 haha :)
Won't be entering this time around, can judge if help is needed.
awesome! adding you to the judges list
you were a bit slow submitting your project (AYYYYYYY, get it, because it's a snail....) Nice little project though :D
:P thank-you (i see what you did there)
Awesome 3D snail ! Here you go a shareable 3D view of your build with the conquest texture map https://www.kubity.com/p/rLmj5y
Thankyou Haha :) forgot to make one myself. your program is so awesome :D its a pitty you can't see the meta data's though :/
Btw, look at this https://www.kubity.com/p/AFFa1L :)
Wahou ! That is really cool ! Really awesome castle. If you guys start using this tool more and more then I will put more effort in it so metadata blocks and combined textures are also handled ! Nevertheless, your snail already looks pretty badass with the Conquest pack
That would be so fucking amazing, to have metadata!
Is Demomaker allowed? xD
My contest entry: http://www.votable.com/p/MUc
So... My world got corrupted ... TIME TO MAKE A FUNNY WORLD CAUSE I'M TO LAZY TO REMAKE IT!
:( how did it get corrupted? maybe you could fix it with something like MCEdit
I'm willing to be a judge. I'm not the best builder, so I might as well check out somebody's great builds!
awesome glad to have you on board helping out will update the judge list
Are builds allowed to be in a different dimension such as Nether?
yep thats totally fine so long as the structure itself stays within the limit.
This is one I can get into. Cool!
Here's my entry! http://www.votable.com/p/MQj
I presume so but did not see in the rules: we can build in creative mode?
Thanks! I figured...Quartz is hard to come by in mansion quantity. ;)
I'm exiiiiiited :D
So, quick question, can we use command block trickery to add some cool effects to the build? Or is that not allowed? And could the build also be dark, maybe grim? Who knows, maybe for some people dark and gritty is paradise :P
sorry no command blocks on this contest, what do you think should they be allowed in future build contests? was unsure to allow/unallow. and of course you can make it dark/grim whatever you think is awesome!
Aw, man, I was gonna add ghosts ;^; Lol, okay, just asking to make sure. Eh, I don't think it matters. It is a build contest, not a command block contest. Tho you could maybe do a command block contest later? Maybe a one command system contest, or a mini-game contest or something? Just an idea :D
which ver. of MC i should use?
I thought I had time to enter....turns out I do not but, I'm very excited to see these builds and I know a handful of V's are entering! Can't wait! :D
OI XO! if I'm entering your entering!
I know I'm not entering, and I'm a judge, but I have to ask. Are you allowed to build with mods? Just curious.
"Must be built in a base version of minecraft - the build itself must not rely on any mods in implementation. However you may use a texture pack to showcase your build within the project page." last paragraph from "Rules"
Oh. I missed that part. Thnx
Bravelion are you entering?
Indeed it is as you say "awesome"
I am preparing for awesome.
Who did build that ugly house btw?
Ugly house? That's the Votable office xD
This is great! Can't wait to see all the amazing builds!!
Can I use command blocks?
sorry no command blocks
welp time to start again...
Here's mine. Still adding pictures. http://www.votable.com/edit/M9t
