    We are glad to announce the opening of our Contest World on our Network with our very first contest called ‘Build an Empire”.

    Our contest world has some additional features added on top of our plot plugin the main feature being the ability to DOWNLOAD YOUR PLOT at any time in the contest. This gives you a world file of your build that you can place for download on websites, render for images and make videos on. If you do this, it would be great to have a shout out to our network and link our ip in your posts :D

    Now onto contest specifics…

    You will be tasked to “Build an Empire” that a civilization would be proud to live in. You can work by yourself or in groups of up to 6 players per plot on our massive contest plots that are just over 1000 x 1000 in size.

    You dont have to worry about terrain as we have custom preloaded terrain onto each plot so you all have the same land to work with to produce a quality project.

    Contest Information:

    Theme: Build an Empire (create a build a civilization would be proud to live in. It can be any style)

    Where: On the Contest world | play.athion.net

    When: 22nd June 2015 - 6th July 2015

    Plot Size: Just over 1k x 1k with preloaded terrain

    Player limit: 1-6 players per plot

    Prizes: The top 3 builds will be featured a promotional video with shout outs to you and your team members. Along with this the winning build will be also featured on our PMC Account (if you wish) and have a solo video made to showcase it.

    Additional prizes may be added before the contest ends but the above are guaranteed.​


    Limitations:
    • Winning plots would need to be mostly finished, since you have 2 weeks to complete your entries we advise you work on sections of your build at a time so half completed builds are not present on your plot
    • You can build in any style you like (fantasy, medieval, nordic, steampunk...etc).
    • Try and get your teams ready before the contest and not remove players mid contest as only those added to the plot will be credited in the end result.
    • Only the PLOT OWNER can download their plot as a world file (see the update June 19th log for command on how to do this).
    • The contest world will be reset after the contest, this will however not happen for a week or so after results have been released.

    Yes, the terrain is a base to work off, you can modify, edit, and add to it as much as you like. However to make it easier for voting process probably a sign board with locations of where things are or clear indications of places of note would be nice :D

    It was planned for everyone to have world edit and voxelsniper. The world edit commands everyone has are the more structural-based world edit commands, whilst voxel is the tool for terraforming, if you so wish to add terraforming.

    Might be cool that we give goal specific custom permissions. I like that a lot.

    How do you use the feature to create a world file of your comp build? (I looked around on the forums before asking to see if I was just dumb but I still cant find it)
