Piratecraft Build of the Month Official Rules

Updated 2015-10-06

Description: Build of the Month (BOTM) is a monthly build competition, where players enter their builds and a winner is decided by Community vote. Voting is done via online poll. The winner will receive a prize, and his/her build will receive an automatic entry into the Build of the Year (BOTY) Competition.

Entry Rules:

  1. Each player may submit a maximum of one(1) entry per month.
  2. A player is allowed to re-submit a non-winning build once every six months. Resubmissions before this waiting period will result in disqualification.
  3. Each entry must be submitted by the 10th day of the competition month at 23:59 UTC. Late submissions will not be accepted.
  4. If a minimum of three (3) entries have not been submitted by the deadline, the competition for that month will be cancelled.
  5. No alterations to an entry may be made during the competition period. If an entry is altered during the competition, it will be automatically disqualified.
  6. There are no size limits.
  7. Any type of build can be submitted, from a simple garden shed to a fully working city.
  8. Entrants may submit a build progress report.
  9. Screenshots & renders will be taken by the Media Team. The resource pack to be used is S&K Photorealism 512 (or Chroma Hills if needed), with SEUS Shaders.
  10. Entrants may request specific screenshots to be taken. The media team will honor these requests at their discretion.
  11. The use of building mods (eg. Schematica) is strictly prohibited. Any player caught using such mods will be immediately disqualified, and the player barred from entering future BOTM competitions.

Voting Rules:

  1. Voting shall be conducted via online poll on the PirateCraft website.
  2. Only one vote per user is allowed during each voting period. Duplicate votes will not be counted.
  3. Bribery is not allowed. If a player, or their crew, compensates another player for their vote, the entry will be immediately disqualified, and the player barred from entering future BOTM competitions.
  4. Extortion is not allowed. If a player, or their crew, threatens, attacks, or otherwise intimidates another player into voting, the entry will be immediately disqualified, and the player barred from entering future BOTM competitions.

Competition Period:

  1. Each competition will run from the first day of the month to the last day of the month.
  2. The deadline to submit entries is the 10th day of the month at 23:59 UTC.
