From the Vagrant Epochers side of the contest:
Heh, I was wondering when I'd get more questions. Alas, I am quite busy lately (insert inaudible grumbling and complaining here) and havent had the time to prepare all the chests. The 1.6 update coming in and being exceedingly broken didnt help either.
Hey speedy mind giving us the data for the world so that we can begin. Not trying to be rude.
Yes, I do mind. This is first off because the world data isn't yet done being edited.
And secondly, I'm waiting for a friend of mine to confirm Minecraft stopped being broken, though that should have no effect on me editing the world.
A: Are we allowed to have multiple entries? Like if I wanted to build a Master Sword recreation and a giant golden creeper, would both entries be accepted, or would I only be allowed to have one entered? Or would both be accepted for judging?
Afraid not. Since there is a prize attached to it, it would be more fair to only have one entry per person.
You're always welcome to build more and make your 'best' the entry.
I honestly doubt anyone is going that long mile, though; the whole prize being awkwardly low and all.
B: What if on our texture pack we're using, something looks epic, but on the regular texture pack or a different one, it looks not as awesome? Since I use PainterlyPack, and it looks WAY different from most texture packs.
Fraid that may not have much effect on your judging. I'm going to ask for the world data, so I can personally walk around and see everything upfront and personal, so using one has absolutely no effect, as I'll be completely judging it in default minecraft.
Hey, uh, I heard there may be some kind of bonus 'points' based on small extra objectives, like the entrance to the building being on ground floor and adapting the surrounding world to make the building nicer, like using the water right next to it for some kind of water way?
I have no idea where you picked that up, but.. yeah, that's true. I judge on originality and eye candy. Things that look nicer will score exceedingly better than blunt and crude things. Stairs instead of having to jump alot? Bonus points. Though to call them bonus might be a bit much, since they're basically objectives that's for everyone.
