Marathon Man

Marathon Man

The idea behind this one is to run a 150k. To be clear that’s to reach 150,000 along one axis coordinate.

Requirements

  • Must be done on foot. No dragons, horses, phoenixes or any other mount allowed (boats are allowed).
  • Cannot use nether or teleporters to shorten the distance. The goal of this is an extremely long expedition away from home.

Shinkansen

Shinkansen

This challenge involves using rails and mine carts to build a functional railroad. The goal is to model the Japanese rail system by the same name. You may find this wiki useful; although as with all our challenges you are more than free and encourage to figure things out yourself.

Requirements:

  • Must cover at least 2000 blocks (overworld only, you cannot pass through the nether on this one)
  • Must cover at least one large body of water (rivers don’t count)
  • Must connect at least 3 villages
  • Must have at least 5 stops (these can include the village stops)
  • Must have at least one section between each stop with powered rails

Arrival Hub

Arrival Hub

A player’s first day in Minecraft is crucial for a new player as they scout out a place for a potential base and begin gathering resources for a build or prepare to explore.

However, on a server it can be even more daunting as resource near the spawn point will most likely be picked clean and the player could end up joining during the night or near dusk and have no chance to to prepare before being thrust into battle.

This is a group challenge to contribute to building a spawn area port to help new players and also as sort of a group hangout for the server. That being said, the rewards are pretty small but there aren’t any real requirements here so it should be fairly easy.

Requirements:

  • Must be near or at world spawn
  • Must be functional or add some kind of value to the hub i.e. vending machines, farms, roads, paths, etc. (don’t expect to place 4 bricks and get a reward).

Boom Town

Boom Town

This challenge involves creating a village from scratch. No extending a previous village. Directions on how to create a village can be found here:

Requirements:

  • Village must be created in a previously empty location meaning no pre-existing village can exist at that location or near that location. If another village exists within 500 blocks of the created village it doesn’t count.
  • The player is allowed to use ruins or other empty structures to supplement the village
  • At least 5 villagers must be alive and not sick (i.e. zombie villagers don’t count as villagers)
  • At least one house for each villager
  • At least 2 other points of interest in addition to the houses (i.e. blacksmith shop, bakery, stables, inn, etc.)
  • At least 2 farm fields must exist in addition to the houses and places of interest
