Build Contest #1

Theme: Build Mario a new house!

Yep! You read that right. A brand-new contest for all you KoopaCraft players to take part in. As part of our "Build Contest" series, we'll give you a theme, and you build something adhering to that theme in a specified timeframe. Once that time is up, all the entries will be put up for a community vote to decide the winner. It's as simple as that.


• Your contest entry must be built on our Contest Map (more info on that below in "How to Enter") and within the timeframes of this contest. Anything built outside this map (on the creative, survival map, etc) or any previous builds cannot be submitted.
• There are no restrictions on blocks you can use - anything accessible from the Creative Mode inventory is fair game. You cannot ask for or use blocks that are obtained outside of this (such as command blocks, barrier blocks, etc).
• You should take all reasonable efforts to keep your build anonymous. While on the Contest Map, build your entry a decent distance away from other entries as to help not give away who built what. If you purposely disclose your build to others and you're found out, you will be disqualified.
• You can work in pairs, or on your own.
• People will have the chance to look around your build in-game, so you're free to add any interactive mechanics (such as redstone).
• All of our normal server rules still apply. Do not touch, damage, or grief other player's builds.

The Theme

Your theme is to build Mario a new house! We're keeping the theme for our first contest fairly broad. You can make the house in any style, though if you make it Mario-themed somehow, that's always a plus!

How to Enter

To enter, you'll need to build your entry on our Contest Map specially setup for this contest. You can access this map with the command /warp contest. You'll be in Creative Mode, so fly a suitable distance away to an area to build your entry.

To submit your entry, you need to PM the coordinates of your build to Tahixham (that's me!) by the deadline (a site PM, not a Discord DM). If you want to, you can also name your entry. If you want to edit your entry after you've PM'd it, simply go back to the map and edit it. There's no need to send another PM as we won't take images until the deadline has been reached.

If an entry is not submitted via PM but is still on the map at close of the contest, it will not count.


You have one week from the time of this post (until EXACTLY 17th July, 20:00 UTC) to build and submit your entry. To help you with that, there's a handy timer below. Once that's up, we'll announce the voting.

Contest closes in: Closed.


Voting will be open for three days from when we open it. We'll provide a list of all the entries with pictures, and you'll be able to vote via a thread poll your favourite three (each vote will have the same weight). We'll also open up the map for you to explore the builds so you can see them in-game.


We have some cool prizes up for grabs. Firstly, we have these pretty trophies (see below in the spoiler). First, second, and third place respectively - and then a participant trophy too.

Additionally, we have some in-game prizes available too. First place will receive a pair of Diamond Boots with Feather Falling VIII (8) - an elite pair of boots that will really help you break those large falls. Second place will receive a bunch of Diamonds, 20 Diamonds in fact! And third place will receive a few less Diamonds - 10 of them. If a pair wins, they'll both receive the prize (it won't be split between them both).

And that's all the info! Good luck with your entries! We can't wait to see what you come up with. Feel free to ask any questions here or in #koopacraft on Discord.
Aaaaand your time is up to build Mario a NEW house... The contest world has now been locked.

Please wait patiently, whilst we get the voting prepared. We'll let you know when it's time to vote!
Voting Information

At the top of this thread, you will see a thread poll listing builds from one to six. You can vote for each entry once, and have up to three votes. Each vote has the same weight, and you don't have to use all your votes.

If you are a contest entrant, you cannot vote. So, don't do it otherwise your vote won't count, and you may still be charged.

Everyone else, players and non-players are welcome to vote.

We strongly encourage you view the builds in-game before voting. They're all really good, and deserve that kind of attention!

To view the builds, join the server and use the command /warp contest. Then you can use the command /warp CBuild1-6, with "1-6" being a number between one and six. Example: /warp CBuild4. For those who don't play the game but want to look anyway, you have some brief pictures below. However, we are working on getting up a YouTube video tour of the builds, with thanks to PermaBan, very soon! Twitch VoD Can be viewed currently HERE! and the tour video will be availed on YouTube within the next 24 hours.

We would also love to see people posting here with some feedback/comments on each build. If you're up for that, feel free.

You have just THREE DAYS to vote. Look at this timer:
Really cool entries, everyone! GG #smrpg{y}

Aaaand here we are!

We have come to the close of our very first building contest on KoopaCraft. It's been a wild, emotional, fun, scary, and exciting few days. And now, it's time for us to say goodbye to Build Contest #1!

Firstly, I'd like to thank the KoopaCraft Moderators team for helping pull this contest together! This was new territory for us, so we're glad it went smoothly.

Secondly, I'd like to thank our six players who entered. Who were, in no particular order: placeholdertest, Impetus, NewPointless, IronFoxGaming, Ruberjig, and Carld923. We hope you had fun entering. You guys truly made some wild stuff!

Now, it is time to announce the winners and nearly-winners.

In FIRST PLACE, we have:
Carld923 with Mario's Mushroom Mansion (Entry 4)

In SECOND PLACE, we have:
placeholdertest with Evil Mario's Castle (Entry 3)

In THIRD PLACE, we have:
IronFoxGaming (Entry 2)

And then finally, the rankings of everyone else:

4th: Ruberjig (Entry 5)
5th: Impetus (Entry 6)
6th: NewPointless (Entry 1)

As mentioned at the start of the contest, everyone received a trophy. If you have even just a few braincells, I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what trophy means what! Thank you to the wonderful Eevee who drew this pretty things!

And remember, that's not all! Our winner receives the super fluffy Diamond Boots with Feather Falling VIII (8); 2nd place 20 Diamonds, and 3rd place 10 Diamonds. Your prizes will be forcefully placed into your in-game inventories very shortly, so take a look when you join the server next - they'll be there.

Thank you again for being part of our first build contest! We can't wait to host more contests and events with you all!
