  1. This month's theme will be Towers! Requirements: 1. Must be original and not based on a movie tower or real life tower. 2. In order for it to be considered a tower there must be at least 7 levels and each level must server some purpose. For example the top level might be a beacon like light in which the next to top level would need to be the operation room aka redstone to operate the beacon, the next level down might be the tower keeper's living quarters..etc. 3. There's no restriction on how tall the tower is as long as you use your space wisely. Each accessible level must be at least 3 blocks tall. 4. Any level used for living like quarters will need to have at least one window. This window can be glass or it can be a decorative hole that does not allow anyone to slip in through the blocks. Even fencing will work for this requirement. Remember that we have changed locations and are now near Northwick I will have an admin address this ASAP to change the warp. Until they can switch the warp the comp is at the following location: -2579, 65, 654 You have until Sat. September 7th to complete your builds! This time I will include a rubric based judging on every build at the time the winners are announced to ensure that there's no favoritism and that the comp has been judged fairly.
  2. There has already been blowback from a few players over the winners. Let me clarify that I judge each build based on meeting the criteria and originality. Let me also take a moment to remind players that complaining ant nitpicking about the winning builds is not good sportsmanship and continued behavior will result in a 3 month ban from the competition to give such persons time too cool down. My friends and family should not be made to feel like they can't enter & have fun with everyone else because of situations like this. Cedarcraft is a fun, supportive, uplifting community and these behaviors do not reflect what the CC server stands for.
  3. And the winners are: 3rd Place: blue_knigh I enjoyed the redstone tables and the outside entrance for the sleeping quarters, however, the attic space was wasted 2nd Place: ellibear Great use of the grounds using up all the space and using the greenery for an entrance, there were however areas of wasted space such as an empty balcony there's a lot more you could have done there to fill in and decorate the space. and 1st place: Dreamy! (I know what others are going to say, no this was not favoritism, no this wasn't a bribe) There was no wasted space whatsoever. The grounds were completed, there were multiple levels, several seating areas, a bar with bar stools and cups ready to drink from, the kitchen was filled with appliances, plenty of rooms, two decorated balconies and even the bathroom provided more than other builds such as a towel and toilet paper. This build included several details that made use of basic items in minecraft to be something entirely different, even the meeting room featured a fire pit which was unique compared to the general fireplaces seen in the other builds. I will attempt to upload some videos I took of each build when I get back from work tomorrow, until then you can check out the builds by visiting /ewarp buildcomp to see the builds for yourself. I will also be placing the prize boxes down and sending the monetary gains to the winners. Tomorrow August's comp will also be announced and we are moving locations, tomorrow evening I will have one of the admins change the comp warp to the new location near Northwick.
  4. I think Dreamy might like Scare Tactics lol then again it might give him ideas to spook me XD lmao! I've found the Great British Baking Show a while ago and I'm still watching it at the moment. Its good but if I fall asleep due to the meds I don't have to rewind to re watch a part to understand what's going on.
  5. Dreamy & I already watched season 3 in 2 days lol
  6. So the every clumbsy Zili has outdone herself again! Y'all know I'm constantly tripping over invisible wires or something right? Well nope apparently I had a misdiagnosis and its gone on for over 2 years now and now I need surgery! Dreamy will be taking good care of me and making sure I don't put weight on my foot for 6 to 8 weeks while I recover (after that only 50% weight on my foot for another 4 weeks) in all this injury (lisfranc ligament repair) will take nearly a year to full recover from. That means I'll have some free time to throw a movie or tv show on in the background while I craft (both jewelry and minecraft) as well as the ever growing pile of grades to complete as I return to work at the start of August! I'll be laid up on Dreamy's couch with my foot in the air to keep down swelling. So recommend your fav tv shows and movies to us. Dreamy has an ever growing list of movies I have never seen that we'll also try to work through.
  7. Way back in the day...I mean way back. When I first got into Harry Potter and found a love of text based role play (think fanfics written person by person type of deal based on how their character would react to the previous character's doings) we used to represent ourselves with dollz which were from drag and drop pixel art sites. That gave way to dolling (creating pixel dolls either from scratch or using a premade base (the human body without clothes, hair, or accessories). This art form is dying out, but every so often I get the itch to create a new doll...and since minecraft is a pixeled game why not include a bit of that asthetic as well? So I present to you my first doll in about 3 years, me, in hufflepuff inspired clothes, my new blue hair and what is that??? I'm standing in front of a minecraft house? you bet! As always dollers (those of us that make dolls) give credit to the base maker. This base is by wish04 now known as wishuponapixel
  8. Yes we did this theme a while ago (when I first started the build comps up again 2 maps ago). This was a favorite and I thought, what a great way to bring back some nostalgia while challenging players to recreate what they may have already done. There's a twist to this though... you do not have to keep your tavern/mead hall in the medieval build style! You can take it back to Roman inspiration, put a Mayan spin on it, or take it all the way to the future! Here are the requirements: 2 levels- one level for the drink & food and the other for sleeping quarters Fire element in the main gathering space Food prep area (like a full kitchen, line prep cook area, or kitchenette, etc). A sign with the name of your Tavern/Mead Hall (can be a basic wooden sign or it can be incorporated into the build using blocks to spell it out, or hanging banners with letters) 1st Place 1500 2nd Place 1000 3rd Place 500 As always each winner will receive a box of goodies at the build comp house along with their ember prizes. Remember the more original and creative you can be with the build earns you more points! You have until August 5th to build your entry, I will Judge around 12 noon (central time). Please let me know here, on discord pm's, or the /mail system in game if you'd like to participate and I will set you up with a plot. Players from June's comp if you'd like to keep your plot please let me know, plots will remain named until Friday so that any players from last month can start their builds for this month if they want to continue with July's comp. After Friday I will reassign the plots from players not wishing to participate this month.
  9. Winner time! I've included a collage of the top 5 builds, but I do want to say thank you Cedarians for making this a successful Build Comp Month. Winners are: 1st Place: Blue_knigh 2nd Place: Missatessatessy 3rd Place: Dippy8390 Money and prize boxes will be available soon!
  10. Thanks the first one was supposed to be 303, fixed now!

    Map Expansion

    Thank you John & Admins!
  12. Northwick is available for people to join if you wish to join town let me know here, pm, pm on discord or in-game mails or msg. Currently, I only have 8 plots (in groups of 4) available for purchase, once we have more members added I'll be able to create more town plots. Northwick also has a mall with room for 13 shops. You do not need to be a town member to have a shop in the mall. The following are the price lists with the option of paying month by month or paying for 3 months rent at a time. The smaller the shop the cheaper the rent. Shops 301 & 303= 25/65 ember Shops 201-204= 30/80 ember Shops 101-104 & 501= 35/95 ember Shops 302 & 401= 50/140 ember
  13. Say what!?!? The long and anticipated wait for the return of one of the server's most beloved towns is almost at an end! I have officially claimed town plots and have started the construction, townhall has been created already and I am in the process of building the mall. One of the biggest draws to town for members and non members was the mall. Just like last map the mall is just outside the town plots so that we can rent shops out to nontown members too! I will announce in a couple of days when the mall is ready along with the first of the town plots and open up Northwick to membership 😄 Town plot prices and other details to come soon!
  14. I agree with adding slimes as i am infested with slimes lol
  15. absolutely, we encourage it because it helps spread word about our amazing community here@
  16. Wow! CC y'all are awesome all 8 plots have been claimed & I know there's probably some more wanting to join so I will be expanding the arena today, if you want to join fear not there will be more plots!
  17. Tako plot 5 Geo plot 6
  18. So Weird! Wishbone Clarissa Explains it All Secret Life of Alex Mack All that
  19. Keeping along with the summer idea let's make some treehouses! Your entry must include a way inside the tree to a living space (in my example there's a ladder area leading from the first floor to the 2nd floor that uses the hollow trunk of the tree) and it must be decorated inside the home/hangout space. If your entry lacks these features you'll lose points! Since our plots are large the size of the tree house is up to you but if you don't use up all the space I encourage you to to find a way to use the rest of the plot (in my example I have a fountain, tree swing, bbq area with table, and a pool with a cabana). Monetary Prizes: 1st Place: 1,500 ember 2nd Place: 1,000 ember 3rd place: 500 ember As always each winner will also have a chest full of goodies to take home as well. Deadline: July 5th! To claim a plot to enter please reply here to this post, pm on discord, or send me a /mail in game. Staff can enter too! Since I am the host and judge all other staff members are allowed to enter the competition too 😄
  20. And here are May's Winners: 1st Place for the originality of Atlantis Ruins: Trey707 2nd Place for the complete temple with mobs: huntersmith717 3rd Place for an ocean temple: dawnmarie93 Congrats everyone! Looking forward to June's theme!
  21. you have kids next door listed in both set 1 and set 3
  22. Players voted for this month's theme to be Atlantis. You are not required to build underwater for this event you are to create something that might have been a part of the mythical underwater kingdom of Atlantis. At the end of the comp, I will "drown" the arena so that we may see what these builds look like both in the water and out of the water for judging purposes...hopefully, I will be able to record the builds on video. Plots are already being given out just send me a mail in the game: /mail send zilithzan I would like a plot for the build comp, please Once you send me a mail for a plot I will assign you a plot remind you to use the server-wide warp "buildcomp" and will include your plot number so that you can start building right away! Because, we are already a week into the month this will run through the first week of June (this also works out for me so that I can decompress after teaching as work ends May 31st). I am short on funds at the moment so for now, the following prize amounts will stand (unless players wish to donate for the comp, and if you do I would appreciate your dedication to the server's events deeply)! 1st Place: 800 ember 1000 2nd Place: 400 ember 600 3rd Place: 200 ember 400 Remember that all placing winners (1st through 3rd) will also receive a box full of items. I've hand-selected prizes that I think the players will enjoy! The competition will end on June 6th giving me 2 days to judge and reset before the next comp. I did not have time to create an example build like I have done in the past since we are already a week into the month so instead I have found some inspirational images of other Minecraft Atlantis theme builds. Keep in mind our plots are not enough space to include everything you see in the following inspiration pictures, so you may wish to focus on one aspect like a castle, a market, a farm, a home, etc.
  23. Atlantis theme has won! Tonight I will set up the comp arena once again. Please /mail me in game if you would like a plot.
  24. The darkness of it caused me to not watch the majority of it, words were hard to make out and the closed caption wasn't always reliable being partially deaf I need to see and read what's happening.
