    What's your favourite thing to do at The Coast? Play in the sea, eat ice cream, maybe build a sandcastle? Well in celebration of summer, you can now build your very own digital sandcastle at The Coast and enter it into our first annual Sandcastle Building Contest! Show off your building skills in this unique format, and have fun too!

    What are the rules?
    • Your sandcastle must be in a plot that is at least 15x15 blocks in size, although you can do a build larger than this.
    • Your build should be almost entirely made out of the following materials (other things like torches, banners, signs are allowed):
      • Sand / Red Sand
      • Sandstone blocks (all types)
      • Concrete powder
    • They can be on any theme, but this must be appropriate for the server and not break any rules.
    • You can build anywhere you want on the server.
    • You must enter your build on the server using the /sandcastle command. This command is now available.
    • Submissions must be in by Sunday 13th August
    • UPDATE: Deadline extended to Wednesday 16th August

    How is the contest judged?

    • I (Aleturas) will go through all entries and they will make a shortlist. This shortlist will then be reviewed by The Coast Staff team (members who have participated and reached this stage will not be allowed to judge). The final shortlist will then either be announced as the winners, or a public vote will be held, depending how many entries we receive.

    What are the prizes?
    • The first place participant will receive 500 tokens, 250 copper, and an exclusive trophy.
    • The runners up will receive 150 tokens and an exclusive trophy.

    I hope you all have fun participating in this latest event! It's been really great to see the server so active and so many new and familiar faces participating in recent events and activities. Remember that you can help support and grow the server by sharing it with your friends and encouraging them to come and play.

    Just to clarify, we can use other blocks to accent the build (for example fences for a gate or wool for a flag), as long as the build is primarily made of sand/sandstone. Yes?

    Question: Do you have to do the interior of the castle, or is the contest only based on exterior?

    All parts of the build will be taken into account (whether you have an accessible inside or not is up to you), but it's up to you how you want to spend your time making it.
