Hello folks!

 

This is the official sign-up thread for the Dig Dug Community Event scheduled for Saturday July 6th!

 

DIG DUG!

Dig Dug is a copy of a game I watched on someones youtube challenges.  Being a legit server, this community event has taken me the better part of 4 months of planning, and layout.  there are more than 100,000 blocks hand placed by yours truly!

The objective of this game is to build a matching duplicate of the "statue", or "structure" revealed at the beginning.  Competitors will have all the access they need to this statue/structure to view it, and remember it's components.  Remember: Redstone knowledge may be put to the test.  

Remember when you first started playing Minecraft?  That's what this represents!  Log in, and you immediately start punching a tree to start making your tools.  There are many different types of blocks placed in the PODS, and you are required to find them, mine them, dig them up, and bring them to the surface.  Once you have all the materials you need to build the statue/structure, it is then time to build it, and be the first one to build it to win!

I would love to see competitors record their screen via frapps, camtasia, or any other screen capturing software.  This is not required, but would make for a very cool video once finished.  A video that I will be editing, and producing once all is finished.  A drop box address will be provided to those who do choose to record their point of view in this competition.  Thus making file transfer easy for everyone.

This game will be for single players, or Teams of Two (2) players. 

 

Dig Dug Rules:

- Event Date: July 6th, 6pm EST. Please be online and ready by 5:30pm EST!

- Competitors who will be recording their screen must have their video submitted by Sunday July 7th.

- Competitors start with an EMPTY inventories

- Competitors WILL be allowed to use super breaker, or any MCMMO enhanced skills.

- Armor is not required (but you may make it... remember however, items are limited)

- You may NOT teleport out of the POD or Viewing area once you have entered the arena.

- Beds are supplied inside the pods, for both /home purposes, and a place to return should you die.

- You may NOT bring tools.  You dont start the game with tools, that's what this game resembles, remember!                          

  (however some supplies are buried in the PODS :))

- Please do not break the glass surrounding your pod.

- The obsidian level at the bottom of the pod is to symbolize bedrock and should not be dug up, thank you.

- Food will be provided along with a stack of torches, and ladders by your Event Coordinator: TSWG :D

 

Competition Rules:

- Competitors will race to dig up, and USE/PLACE/CREATE the necessary items to build the OBJECT(s) set out at the  beginning of the game.

- This game COULD take more than an hour, as digging up 70000 blocks will NOT be done in mere seconds.

- The object of the game is to create/build the OBJECTIVE first.  

- There is only ONE winner, or winning TEAM!

- The Event "Statue" will be created by one of the Judges, and will not be revealed until the beginning of the game.

- Once the game has begun, you will only be allowed to travel WITHIN your pod or the Statue/Structure viewing area. If you leave your pod for any other purpose than death, or viewing room, you WILL be disqualified.  No excuses. (console will be used to verify this.)

- ALL materials Dug up by a competitor become that competitor's property!

** Trust me: there's a TON of goodies buried in these PODS **

 

Now that all the Rules and regulations have been gone through, here's the LOOT!!!

§100,000 shillings

Diamond Helm: Protection 4, Respiration 3, unbreaking 3

Diamond Chest: Protection 4

Diamond Legs: Protection 4

Diamond Boots: Protection 4, Feather Falling 4

Diamond Sword: Named Godslayer: Sharpness 4, Knockback 2, Unbreaking 3, Fire Aspect 2

Bow: Named "Not Even Once...": Infinity 1, Power 5, Punch 2, Flame 1, Unbreaking 3

Dragon Egg

Total estimated cost: 200,000 - 250,000 shillings.

** Prizes supplied by TSWG's personal cache! **

 

Here's a short little video for your enjoyment:

 

Sign up below with the following information:

What is your IGN?

When is the event?

When will you be online?

Who's the Event Coordinator?

** If you are recording: What program are you using?


Once you have signed up, you will be given a POD Number on this forum topic.  When the event begins, you will be directed to go to that POD, and wait until you are to begin the event.  This is to limit the massive amount of chaos that comes from the many questions everyone will have in game at the beginning of the event.



Sign-up List:

POD#1: Adituno
POD#2: vEchozZ & Danweldor (possibly recording)
POD#3: ICraftTheWorld 
POD#4: NetherSpartan5 & SuperSheep23 (Recording)

POD#17: lilmack96 

 

Those of you who are recording, I will set up a Dropbox folder for you, so you can simply click a link, and toss your file(s) into it for upload.  You are certainly welcome to make your own video, but I would like to compile everything into a single VC video as well!

Me & Dan are trying to find a good, free recording software to record both of our views. We will also be in a skype call which we will try to record.

 

Answer to Adituno: It's a diamond block, he's using Sphax Pure BDCraft. :D

fraps is free to download, and all the others have free "trials" that you can use as well.

 

Best results for recording is to have a secondary drive that you use solely as a place where download files go, or video files in this reference.  That way your HD is not being chewed up trying to output information for the game, and record information from the video at the same time.  have the game and the video going to, and coming from different places.  You will get the 30fps recorded properly, and you wont get video lag in the game, or from the recording software.  when the two programs run using the same HDD, you may experience complete video lag, and 1-5 frames per second, (that's bad).

 

Just a tip.

I don't think I'll be recording... I have a very slow computer and it can barely run minecraft, but I will do some testing over the next few days.

It's not the first one, I've recorded all the events that I've hosted:) you can watch them on VeteranCraft's YouTube channel.
