Survival Build Event: Aquatic (Ended)

2 Aquacraft Players Building

Hello, travellers of the survival realms! It is time for a monthly build event! *gosh we haven’t had one in a while*. For people that don’t know what a build event is, it is a month-long event where players can compete by building their best builds that reflect the theme chosen, staff then judge accordingly and whichever team has the best build to our standards wins.

Build Event Theme: Aquatic Theme

This is an Aquatic-themed build event *chosen by you guys in our discord, join us ;>*, so build anything that you consider Aquatic, be imaginative, be creative! We are excited to see what is built! Make sure your build is within reason and PG as well 👀.


June Build Event Winner: ErrantMountain

Whale Island by ErrantMountain

Build Name: The Whale Island

Story behind the build: From the Diary of Ludwig: “It’s been almost a year since we got stranded on this…island. We got caught in a storm and our weasel crashed. Only Bruce and I have survived, though, now I am here alone. We woke up on this small piece of land with nothing but the ocean as far as the eye can see. We didn’t notice at first that it was moving, but it was indeed. Can you believe that? An island on a whale’s back! We gathered what we could from the crash and built a tiny settlement. We fished and never seem to cross another storm, few months ago. It would seem that Big Berta (how we decided to call the whale) sensed the bad weather and avoided it each time, but not that night. The storm burst down on us leaving most of our possessions in ruins. When the skies cleared out there was no trail of Bruce. I tried looking and calling for him each day, but to no result. There are nights when I could swear I can almost hear him. But it’s probably my imagination playing tricks on me out of loneliness. Tonight, when the sun rose, I heard seagulls in the distance. We are coming to the Big Land. I think Berta finally decided to bring me home…”

Average Judge Score: 59/55 !!

Thank you to all that joined our build event, we loved seeing all your builds and the story you have behind them. Be sure to stick around for another coming soon!


Rules

  • The build should reflect the theme of the competition.
  • Do not copy, replicate, or plagiarize someone else’s builds. They must be entirely yours. You are free to use inspiration but you must link those inspirations in your final publication of your build within the ticket.
  • Schematica, Litematica, or any other mods similar are strictly not allowed
  • You may collaborate with up to 1 other person to create a build, however, the rewards will be split in half (or of your own share.).
  • Your structure must abide by all our rules and guidelines. This means it must be within the realm of reason and does not portray anything 16+.
  • Do not build near anyone else’s submissions 
  • Your build must be built after this announcement, no old builds!
  • Your build must be submitted by June 20th
  • Do not take pictures of your builds with any texture packs for shaders present (we all know shaders make everything look good 😠 ).
