    Automation Rules
    • No looping automation
    • No destructive setups
    • No breaking the server (Setups that do will be removed and will not count towards your score)
    • Judging will be based off the complexity of your setups and the difficulty associated with making them
    • No usage of creative power sources

    Greetings MYM!

    We are very excited to announce that the newest event is
    here and ready!


    The Events!

    Each month a new special event will be held for a two week period. Builds will be judged on originality and adherence to that month's theme, and prizes and points will be awarded! Points will go on a leader-board that will lead to the ultimate GRAND PRIZE at the end of the event!

    Let's Get Techy!


    This contest will run from Oct. 27-Oct. 31 To help with the confusion of time zones, a countdown to the start of the event can be found here, and a countdown to the end of the event can be found here!


    How Does It Get Judged and What Do We Win!?

    A panel of pre-determined judges (comprised of Players, Patrons, and Staff) will vote upon the placements of each build, which will be entered into our Seasonal leader board. Each month's event will have a monthly reward including an addition of points to the Seasonal leader board. At the end of the year of events, a grand prize will be given to the top of the leader board!
    The Prizes!


    1st place:
    5 pts, 1 large kit of their choice, 700 MYM Tokens
    • 2nd place: 4 pts, 1 medium kit of their choice, 500 MYM Tokens​
    • 3rd place: 3 pts, 1 small kit of their choice, 300 MYM Tokens​
    • Top 25: 1 pt, 100 MYM Tokens​
    The GRAND Prize!

    Grand Prize: The grand prize's details are forthcoming and will depend on community involvement and how many events we hold other than the monthlies!​

    Seems @GreyWolf11 missed a few details lol. The plot will be a 3x3 chunk area. As for what we are automating, that part I dont actually know off the top of my head. Will have to get back with the event team and get the post updated more clearly when I get off work if he doesn't get to it first.

    Yes. You can automate anything you can with your mind and creative mode (Given it doesn’t break the server, as listed in the post)

    I would totally do this if it wasn't for the fact that I haven't played in forever. Too bad I don't remember half the stuff, I should remember most things though!

    Slip up in documentation, it still sends it to the proper place, just hasn’t been updated.
    Unless I’m mistaken in all this, @Peace7904 can answer definitively as he’s our spreadsheet samurai.

    The form is setup that way because we were discussing a different kind of building idea but scrapped it for the time being. Had the option like that as a just in case we did add the idea back in. Seeing as we haven't discussed it in a while, will go ahead and remove it.

    will there be marks towards making the automation prettah or whatever, as long as it works ? Still think it's pretty vague though ... :p

    What do you consider automation?
    - AE2 network that can autocraft a ton of stuff (ore processing and what not).
    - Continiously crafting processes like botania livingrock production for example
    - Autosorting of essentia from thaumcraft
    - ...​

    I'm fairly certain that making things such as octuple compressed, etc. counts, so long as it's fast.

    Continuous crafting is probably an O.K.

    Autosorting... maybe, if it's not golems it probably counts depending on factors.

    it says no using of creative power sources. But how do you power your power-hungry set up’s? can you use big reactors and feed it fuel from a creative strongbox?

    Yep, all that means is that there’s no taking the easy way out and just slapping down a creative steam tank & a turbine or a creative energy cell
