EDIT: Poll has ended, stay tuned for a further announcement with more information!
Hey AEM'ers. Thank you all for participating in the first ever AEM Build-Off, with the theme being the next Survival Spawn. In case you didn't know, the Survival Server will be reset and updated to 1.11.2 in the near future.
Until then, we have looked at all of your builds and have limited down the competition to 3 finalists! The Staff have done their part; now it is your turn. Below, you will find [Spoilers] that you can click for each of the finalists that contain screenshots of each submission. We encourage you to also log onto the Creative server and check out the builds within Minecraft to really get the whole experience (/warp buildcomp). We have also written brief summaries of each of the submissions. Take a look!
CR7JoyceBe sure to choose carefully, as the winner's spawn will be used on the new Survival reset AND the winner will be taking home a donation coupon worth $50-75.
@CR7Joyce decided to take advantage of single-player and sent us a world download for their submission. Joyce's spawn features a circular build surrounded by custom landscaping. Around the spawn, a river separates the surrounding cliffs and the spawn itself to create an elegant view from the bridges that lead out. The spawn features a centerpiece connected to several chains that hold the building together.
@Danny Von Monroe (Gehy) took an all-too familiar (but amazing) approach to his spawn submission. Danny's spawn, with its wide ceilings and all the essentials within, holds together all your needs within one, magnificent and solid building. The spawn, with its red trim, stays true to the colors and overall theme of AEM. This massive building is eye-candy when given proper terraforming.
@PokeSonicMario1 decided to spread out the utilities of the spawn in a village fashion, hosting several medium-large buildings, a castle, and a hot-air balloon at the very top. The castle features a throne that overlooks a wide courtyard, fit for a king. Additionally, the paths around the spawn feature AEM themed street names that are named after several staff members and the server itself. (I see what you did there).
@PvpJamy's spawn gives users the comfort of a tiny village that has a large character. Featuring custom terrain and medium-small buildings, Jamy takes the usually large spawn and makes it work on a smaller (and cuter) level. The spawn features all the essentials of every spawn, but adds on by placing armor stands that enact the everyday activities of villagers going about their everyday work. Solid build overall.
