    Hi
    So with the new upcoming launch of Deathrun, we wanted to do something a little fun for the community.
    From 28th Jan to 27th Feb, we're hosting a map competition on create. Details are as follows:​

    Map Criteria
    • We're going to be racing here. Try to make your map suitable for competing for the fastest time. That being said, don't be afraid to be different.
    • At the same time, if possible, try to break up parkour a bit. It doesn't all need to be flippy stuff!
    • Smaller areas flooded with lava will help lag the server less.
    • Try to consider both aesthetics and gameplay!
    • Please also make sure that your map is reasonably difficult and not too long. Don't make the maps too short though. The average map should be around 1-2 minutes.
    • We encourage you to include new and unique ways to get through a map. You’re not solely limited to parkour! The use of elytra and other stuff can make your map really stand out.
    • We will be adding the ability for points in the map to have multiple routes to the same destination that can open/close randomly each round. By making players take different paths, this can really add some variety to a map, so we encourage you to try this.
    • Harder shortcuts will add some challenge for more experienced users.
    • Puzzles are not prohibited, but they should be playable each time by an individual (so one player doesn't just unlock it for everyone) and easy enough to do quickly. This is difficult though, so we'd recommend straying away from them.
    • Don't be scared to stick perfectly to the guidelines. If you have a good enough reason for straying away from our advice, that's fine - rules are made to be broken!

    Prizes:
    1st
    - Name placed in the hall of fame/Custom title/Custom login/logout message/3 new compmeme commands

    2nd - Custom title/2 new compmeme commands

    3rd - Custom title/1 new compmeme command

    Other details:
    Teaming is allowed up to 2-3 people per plot.

    Judging will take around 1 week at least.

    Multiple submissions are allowed.

    Get to the contest with /mvtp DRComp

    - If you have any other questions, please leave a reply!​

    You can do multiple, and yes, it should be in the contest world in create.

    Well I suppose you can build the map in survival, and take images of the finished product, but I'd still wanna be able to test it out.

    I’ll give you access to the tools you need butamou, send me a PM if you are lacking anything.

    (This is not specifically to give a benefit in the competition, this is because it will give us some great maps, and I don’t want anything silly hindering that)
