Welcome to the Open Seas Build Contest!

This contest is aimed at showcasing the skills of some of the servers talented builders in return for some awesome prizes and a chance to leave your mark in the Open Seas. Consider yourself a good builder? Then why not give it a shot? Either way it’s all a bit of fun for everyone!

The overall build theme is of course the Open Seas. Think about what is currently placed there and match the theme, it has to be something that could genuinely fit in.

Here’s a few pointers to help get you sailing in the right direction!

  • Where could it fit in? specific areas have a bit of a theme themselves: parrots, sunken ships, crates, big landmarks nearby, anchors, life rings etc.

  • Use a variety of materials, the Builder in the market is always a good place to start!

  • Try not to copy or rip off of existing landmarks in the Open Seas, the aim is to create something unique.

  • It can be submerged in water!

Cool Cool !

By the way, does “One submission per person” mean 1 build or can you submit multiple builds?


#4

Only one build per person


#5

I was wondering if the video/pictures themselves had to be on the server or if we could do a world download and use fly for better quality?


#6

Good luck everyone who participates on the Contest!

I was thinking that it would be neat if we could make 2 builds and your favorite one would count for the contest :smiley:
