  4. Is there a minimum or maximum length for the song? And do the note blocks need to be accessible?
  5. Good question! There isn't a defined minimum or maximum length, but it should be more than a couple of note blocks. I would recommend aiming for 30 seconds as the minimum.

    Yes, the note blocks need to be accessible.

  10. so if any 1 wants to make a 200 player team
  11. Of course you're the first to find the exploit. :p

    Interesting contest! I've never composed a song for note blocks... could be nice, though! I am about to start another musical project though...
    Moreover, I really don't care for decoration. I also imagine that actually setting the notes would be quite tedious, because you have to click the notes a bunch of times...
    At the same time, I like composing and note blocks have interesting limitations!
    Maybe if a friend wants to collab, I'll consider it. ;)
  12. This is just Brilliant! This is the kind of "outside the box thinking" EMC Needs! Events, contests and builds that are different and unique. Moople, I cannot tell you how AWESOME you are at being creative, innovative, involved and dedicated to this server! I may not have had time nor participated in some of these, but I sure LOVE THEM! ....... Just wish I knew how to make more than a doorbell lol.
  13. I was thinking the same thing Merek. This is an awesome idea for a contest. Very unique.
    I'm interested to see what players come up with but to put something together would take me more than month.
  14. I fully recommend this utility from the VanillaTweaks resource pack by xisumavoid
    It lets you see the Note(Pitch) that is being played in all NoteBlocks
    https://vanillatweaks.net/share#JxYCuK (this is a direct download link - Resourcepack will download after clicking)
  15. This is a great idea Moops! I hope we see this event pop up again.

    I have met some talented people out here among us that can really put on a good show with note blocks.

    Best of luck to you all!! 😄
  16. Just submitted mine, can't wait to see what people have created :)
