EMC - Maze Event

Discussion in 'Share Your EMC Creations' started by Dreamytje, Apr 23, 2012.


    So recently BeLugh and me came up with a new idea for a project to realize on SMP7. We thought it would be cool to create a project in which there are multiple levels with puzzles and mazes and parcours. We got the idea because before BeLugh and me started our shop together BeLugh already had a small maze, but we wanted something bigger. So we claimed a new residence and we gave the whole server build rights and container rights and everyone who wanted to help we supplied with Diamond shovels and we gave them 200R per hour. So we could dig out the whole residence. After 2 days of digging we were finally done, we had a 60x60 residence completely empty.

    We then immediately thought of an idea for the project, we wanted to use sandstone and build a pyramid on top of the levels. So we calculated how much sandstone we needed to realize this, the calculation gave us that we needed 130.000 pieces of sandstone. So we put up a chest for people to sell sandstone to us, but that did not really work out as the amount of sandstone we got through that was not enough, it was about 2000 pieces we got through that. But then we got into a chat with Leowaste and he was able to supply us with 110.000 sandstone, which was enough to realize our project. So we made a deal, paid him and we got the sandstone.

    That was about 2 weeks ago, when we got the sandstone we put the pyramid together and started working on the first levels. But as we progressed we found out that using only mazes would be no fun for the people who would use it. So we came up with other things to use as levels, like parcours and puzzles. But the realize most of these levels we needed to know more about redstone. Before we started with the maze we could just connect a lever to a door. But we went on experimenting with redstone and came up with some awesome ideas we put in the project.

    As you will go through all the levels you will see us evolving more and more not only in building style but also in redstone advancement and of course levels will get harder all the time.


    So last weekend we were finally done with the project, we completed all 30 levels. We only had to create a few things like a bonus level which you will see in the sky when you get to the project. And of course there were more things like testing all levels and creating the lobby etc. So we knew we had to do something special for this project, that’s how we came up with the idea to organise an opening event, the opening event will be next Thursday.
    So the event will be as following. The first second and third to finish the maze will get a prizes which will be listed below. This is to stimulate people to come to our event on the day of release and to actually finish our project, as it’s really hard and will take time to complete. As you can’t leave the project because your progress will be lost so you have to stay inside the levels otherwise you start at level 1 again.
    We open the maze today! Thursday 26th of April! We open the maze at 14:00 EST/19:00 GMT


    1st place – 36.000 rupees + Full diamond set(Armor,weapons,tools)

    Prizes change when we get donations
