Votable Build Contest #2 - Luxury houses ( solo build ) - Submissions now closed

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 ).

Rules

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.

Judging

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.

Judging List

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.

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 !

2
adi0392 11 months ago

hey can you have them put it in votable

2
ImGenerousGonzy 11 months ago

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 ?

1
ImGenerousGonzy 11 months ago

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.

Miikkelson 11 months ago

So can I build a garden outside a 36x36 house or is it just the house?

3
Jseek [V] 11 months ago

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 :)

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 :)

1
Jseek [V] 11 months ago

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.

3
Miikkelson 11 months ago

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

2
BCs300z 11 months ago

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

1
Jseek [V] 11 months ago

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.

2
nannehessel 11 months ago

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 :))

1
Jseek [V] 11 months ago

ahh sorry its US so I think that translates into something like 45 euro ( correct me if I am wrong here somebody )

1
nannehessel 11 months ago

Ah i see, but can i help judging? :)

1
Jseek [V] 11 months ago

for sure will add you to the judges list

1
nannehessel 11 months ago

Cool, can i still join the contest then? :P

2
Jseek [V] 11 months ago

lol prob best if the people responsible for selecting winners are not also submitting entries

1
nannehessel 11 months ago

Then i wont judge, i want that 50 dollar lol :P

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?

3
asterious [lead] 11 months ago

Yes but programmers count from zero ;)

2
mearrin69 10 months ago

Nice.

2
Jseek [V] 11 months ago

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 :)

you were a bit slow submitting your project (AYYYYYYY, get it, because it's a snail....) Nice little project though :D

1
nannehessel 11 months ago

:P thank-you (i see what you did there)

1
ImGenerousGonzy 10 months ago

Awesome 3D snail ! Here you go a shareable 3D view of your build with the conquest texture map https://www.kubity.com/p/rLmj5y

1
nannehessel 10 months ago

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 :/

1
nannehessel 10 months ago

Btw, look at this https://www.kubity.com/p/AFFa1L :)

1
ImGenerousGonzy 10 months ago

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

1
nannehessel 10 months ago

That would be so fucking amazing, to have metadata!

I'm willing to be a judge. I'm not the best builder, so I might as well check out somebody's great builds!

2

Are builds allowed to be in a different dimension such as Nether?

1
Jseek [V] 11 months ago

yep thats totally fine so long as the structure itself stays within the limit.

This is one I can get into. Cool!

3Ravens98 11 months ago

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

1
Jseek [V] 11 months ago

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!

1
The Diamond Society
3Ravens98 11 months ago

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

"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"
