    **Failure to read this post in it's entirety may result in you unknowingly disqualifying yourself from winning. Please read this post in its entirety**
    Objective:

    Construct a massive cube using only coal, iron, lapis, redstone, gold, emerald, and diamond blocks!


    Each cube will have the following points tallied:

    Each redstone block used = +1 points
    Each coal block used = +2 points
    Each iron block used = +2 points
    Each emerald block used = +4 points
    Each lapis block used = +5 points
    Each gold block used = +15 points
    Each diamond block used = +25 points
    Any other blocks used = -4 points

    Each air block = -5 points



    Some things to make a note of:

    • Cubes must be built in /warp contest, a special flatmap world.
    • This special flatmap world will be removed following contest completion. You will lose blocks you placed.
    • You must construct a perfect cube. Six faces and same length, width, and height.
    • Non-perfect cubes are docked -10% of their score for each block that it is off.
    • All cubes must be free floating, NOT touching the ground.
    • No teams, this involves actively setting blocks down for someone who is competing.

    Prizes:
    1st: $500 Amazon Giftcard
    2nd: $250 Amazon Giftcard
    3rd: $100 Amazon Giftcard

    The contest world will be locked from any further changes being made at 10pm EST October 30th. After this point you will not be able to retrieve your placed blocks.

    In order to place, you must reply here with your in game name and the coordinates of your cube. You are welcome to edit your post, so long as that occurs before October 31st.

    Tallying of scores will take place between October 31st and November 1st, with final results being posted later on November 1st!

    There will be a zero tolerance for cheating or exploiting in any form. No automation of any kind is allowed. You will be disqualified from this and all future contests and, depending on severity, banned from MineCove with your data irreversibly wiped.

    Good luck all!

    Extra question, is it supposed to be all 1 type of ore or can it be mixed or 1 layer has to be one type and the others can be another type of ore ?
