Time for Powered By Redstone build off: #1!

Ok guys and girls, its time for the first "Powered By Redstone monthly build off"!! In case this is the first you have heard about this, let me explain the way this is guna go down! P.S. even if you did read the previous post about it, you may still want to read some of the changes and additions I have made.

  1. At the bottom of this post you will see a category in bold print, like this.  You will have from now-next Friday (the 1st thru the 13th this month) to complete your build in this category.

  2. On that Friday (the 13th) you can send 1-4 pictures of your build, a name or username for us to give you credit with, and a short description of your build(optional) to poweredbyredstoneblog@gmail.com with the subject 'Build Contest'.

  3. Over the next few days I'll look thru all of the entries and pick a winner! My goal will be to pick a winner by Sunday, but if I get a large amount of entries, I may have to take a few days more.

  4. There is no prize for winning other than bragging rights, an article written about your build, and a place on our victors wall (coming soon!).


Now doesn't that sound fun! Well, sadly, there are a few rules of engagement, but these rules are just in place to keep it fair for players across all platforms and to keep it running smooth!

  1. Please restrain from using mods if possible. I understand if you use optifine, not enough items, etc. but please do not use block altering mods, such as chisel block etc.

  2. On the same note, it would be wise to use the default resource pack. Again this is to keep it even for players on all devices.

  3. Please have all parts of your build be yours. Do not download someone else's build and say you built it.


Note: these rules are subject to change so don't be surprised if they are different next month!

Ok, now that that's settled, time to announce the category! So, without further adieu, your category is...drum role please...Tree houses!! So have fun and good luck!

NOTE: in section 2 i say you can put "a short description of your build(optional)". when I say short I mean around 3 sentences. Thanks!

Wait...does that mean I can plant a dark oak tree, build a 3x3x4 wood structure on top with a door, and call it a tree house?

Ahh, ok! I'm just about finished with my entry (created in mcpe). It is kind of bland/random unless you read the backstory of it.

Hey please wait to sent in your build until Friday. Otherwise it will be very confusing for me to sort thru them and know whats what. Also, just FYI, your email didn't have any pictures with it. not sure whose end the problem is on but just to let you know.

Do we have to post pictures of the build, or are videos OK? I feel like videos do a better job of capturing the essence of the build

A video is OK but if it has any language or anything like that ill request pictures. I would like 1 overview picture along with the video tho so that if you win I can put that as the image at the top.

This doesnt have anything to do with the build rly but on the topic of videos, does anyone know a good third party app to record your screen with no jailbreak or computer?

The only way I know how to do it on an Iphone is to jailbreak. Apple just doesn't allow screen recording apps. But hey if anyone else knows of one please correct me!
