The new pyramid in spawn needs Egyptian statues! So here is a contest:
Build an Egyptian statue! Small or big! But they have to be recognizable Egyptian. Post a link to a picture here.
The first prize: You get the amount of blocks used in diamonds AND
- 1 stack of lightstone OR
- a level upgrade! (You choose)
- Build a statue that is recognizably Egyptian out of any material. I will convert it into sandstone once it is accepted.
- Post a link to the image of the statue here in the comments
- If someone posts the same statue (or an extremely similar) as you built first, your entry is disqualified. So the simpler the statue, the more risk! The point here is not that 2 people might build a sphinx. The point is that 2 people might build the EXACT same sphinx.
- The statue has to be 3D and not just 2D pixel art.
- There might be bonus prizes for cool/funny stuff. Don’t expect the same amount of prizes as last time!
- provisional deadline is end of 1st of May. If the upgrade to 1.5 delays stuff a lot, I might extend
Please do not post those google image links. most times they do not work. You can click through to the actual page and post the proper link.
Sounds interesting, shame I don’t have the means to take part :(. My stupid mac keyboard doesn’t have the print img button :P
hu? minecraft makes screenshots with F2 and there are tons of tools online which also make screenshots. Windows 7 has one preinstalled.
Oh they maybe I will be able to participate after all :)
Yeah, Akymma, you can use F2 and find it in your Application Support folder. If you don’t know where that’s at, go to Finder, open your Library folder, then Application Support, then Minecraft, then Snapshots. It should be there.
If not, use your given programs like, Preview or Grab. I believe they have timers, so once you get it started you can switch back to Minecraft and it’d take a snapshot.
Command-Shift-3 does screenshots on a Mac Akymma.
The Eye of Ra (day):
(and at night):
Oh man, gotta get to work on this! Sounds like much more of a challenge this time, as if you want to win you’ll have to build something extraordinary!
Good luck to everyone :D
(By the way Akymma, on a Mac if you press “Command Shift 3” in that order, it will take a screenshot of your entire desktop.
so what would happen if a vip won?
He said if you don’t want a rank up, you can choose a stack of lightstone, so I’m assuming when Pluto wins he’ll choose that. :P
Lol, “when pluto wins” *Like*
Well in the sense that I do want a rank up…
As I told Sockso earlier, it will become [SmartAss]. It’ll be described on the User Levels page as “A VIP who chose an upgrade in a contest.”
Now wouldn’t that be something Hiosa, eh? :D
There are different level types: “Rank” levels and “Fact” levels.
“Owner” and “Banned” are fact levels. All others are Rank levels and circular. So if you go up from VIP you are back to Guest level.
Any questions? :-)
Hahahahahaha messaged received :D
I would like to build a statue of Anubis.
i apologize. Lvasold is already doing anubis. So i would like to change my entry.
Please ignore the above post.
I will attempt to build a statue of osiris.
I will be building Horus
I will be building the ANKH (cross)
haha thats what I already made :P
I know a ton of people will be trying to do this, so I call dibs on the sphinx. (already started, so if you do choose to build it, you will be disqualified.)
Nevermind, update cleared things up a bit. :P
Dibs on a camel!!!!!!
awwww i was going to do that =(
Fireguy, you can, I’ll do something else
Umm, are booby traps aloud to be made? Because I shall do that if you allow it.
Uncovery quick question. You say in the post above, “If someone posts the same statue (or an extremely similar) as you built first, your entry is disqualified. So the simpler the statue, the more risk!”
Doesn’t this mean that whoever actually posts a picture of it first will have the rights to it? If so, people, stop calling out what you’re making!
And the update clears it all up :D
As Sockso might say… “Thankcovery.”
Dibs on the scarab.
dibs on the ibizan hound
this is basically what im trying to blockify
Alright ~ since I knew what i wanted to build here it is.
Seth god of darkness statue
correction XD its Anubis :3
How in the world did you make that in 2 days?!
steam-punk ~ wizardry ~
anyway i want people to do better than i can in 24 hours XD
u have a month now to top me :3
*imagines what fools we will all look like if Pluto wins…*
you have been toped by lvasold
This is the ANKH I created today! Hope you like it! (and I hope it would be possible to keep the colored wools as gems)
we’ll see who’s is better :P
haha I guess we will :P
This is my entry, I know the 2d pixalart rule, scarabs aren’t to wide
this is asking for your password.
Sorry photobucket is not working for me right now
Wait, is this for singleplayer or for uncovery world?
Well the rules dont really say that it HAS to be on multiplayer.
Can I build a Eygptian building with a tomb thing inside it?
i bags the winged sun
I will be doing the head of Nefertiti.
Nevermind…… can’t figure out how to make the facial features prominent enough to work.
How I discovered the Death Mask!
As I was working around my lot, a young messenger was sent for me as our excavation crew had uncovered what seemed to be an ancient chamber. I was informed that as I traveled to the location, the crew would be busy clearing and lighting the chamber for my arrival. When we arrived we found nobody. Literally, no bodies. Everyone was gone, vanished, no traces! We found the small entrance into the mineshaft and followed it, hoping to find the crew, but they are all gone.
What we did see, as we approached the edge of the pit they had opened was this:
First View (Vulture and Cobra on head)
Behind us was another passageway that led down further, opening up to a large stepped cavern and our view from there was just as foreboding:
Entering the Chamber
As we approached, the eyes appeared to move with us and follow us through the chamber:
Followed by Eyes
I moved to the side to set down my things where I get a much better vantage of this god’s resting place:
Angle showing Flail and Crook in Hands
After a few more minutes, the terror overcame us, and we left the chamber very quickly! I later did research and discovered the final resting place of Pharoah Tutankhamun, pictured here next to models of his likeness:
Comparison of Tutankhamun Death Masks
The coming attraction will feature water slides and a cafe area between the hands in front of the main statue. There will be a children’s play area setup atop the large base that the statue sets on. Next, on to the Great Wall of China Luge Course!
(p.s. – pls remove previous post)
-resigns from competition-
Don’t you dare! I told pluto I didn’t want to submit it yet because I was afraid people wouldn’t want to submit theirs! /sadface
If you resigns from competition what am I gonna do with my crappy eye? >.>
Is there 2nd and 3rd place prizes? If not, then I don’t have a chance xD
Is this your entry? Thats pretty nice
Yes. And thank you.
Pretty nice? That’s amazing!
Introducing the Creeeper-Sphinx!
Definitely not the best entry, but it’s worth a shot.
Please keep in mind what it will look like out of all sandstone, once it is accepted.
Here it is!
That is quite awesome and hilarious! I’m glad it turned out so well!
Thanks! I think the face could have used a lot more work, but I tried many times and this seemed to be the best I could do. :\
my entry of the winged sun
http://s1130.photobucket.com/albums/m529/ninjajabba/minecraft%20comp%20entry/?action=view¤t=wingedsun.png i would have made it bigger but i was restricted as my lot size was a bit small for this size of project
another view of my entry
After a long thinking process of wondering what to build I finally reached a conclusion.
Statues just didn’t work out for me so I thought of something simple to build but looks good in the end. Also, I just wanted to enter something so I made this.
I don’t think that this will give me the 1st prize, but it would like anyway.
This is not much but its at my lot.
Locyman you will have to post links to ONLINE stuff, not to your PC.
sorry, forgot I have to put link
it asks for a password.
this should work
Can’t bother makin’ the other 2 after one got reset in the Four Day Great Time Revert Terror of Uncovery which ate him. :'< So he's the Ramcreeper couple, the cheerful and sad. XD
P.S. May Third rest in pieces.
Didn’t know you were working on this. Nice job!
Here is my entry. The Colosuss of Memnon!
Low front view:
High front view:
45 degree angle view:
Actual statue(for comparison):
Well this is my entry… spent about a month on it. I hope you like it :D.
Great job! I love the six-pack it has. :)
Great work Ben!
I have to say… I’m glad to see it completed! I am impressed. I think it looks a bit like relief pixel art, but it’s a different take on doing a face from blocks and it is well done. I think the nipples and abs lack something… but I wasn’t expecting TOO much. ;-) Great job, bud.
Ben looks fantastic :D
Just take at least one picture of it in the daytime so we can make it out a little bit better. Just one hahaha :)
This is a daylight shot. I just thought that i would add it in. Please Look! :D
Ah, there it is :D Haha I love the spider just chilling inside there haha
I like the spider addition. Gives it a creepy, ancient tomb feel.
P.S. – Proof that you’re NOT fabulous! HA!
Great work! Imo you’ve 1 up+ Lva. His may be colored and detailed, but yours is awesome in size and looks cool too
Only time for 1 image. Can provide rest later.
Took some time. I Hope you like
Hope people like the statue. Pinebenj i shall show you later
Sorry, cannot recognize anything. A daylight picture would be needed.
uploaded all i have
I can see that must have taken a loooong time!
I know right. Thank you for been kind and noticing it. I hope to win this competition.
Here it is: Queen Creepopatra!
Sorry for the bad pictures, my city building was in the way.
s this going to end anytime soon. And results published?
