This challenge was drawn heavily from the City Construction Challenge and the Modern City Challenge. The main difference is that in this challenge, you are separated into teams that each build cities and war with each other. Note that there is a long list of banned items, because of both the limitations surrounding the creation of a challenge of this type with certain items in use and my personal distaste/lack of knowledge of these items. The banned list is: - ALL of EE. I know that some people might disagree with this, but I do not like it and I do not know how to make a good challenge with it. - Quantum Armor. Invincibility makes war pretty damn hard, and nukes ruin the landscape and turn the world into a desolate slab of bedrock. So no quantum. - Nukes, for the reason mentioned above. - No infinite item loops. I know that these are hard without EE, but I’m sure there are some out there. Don’t do it. Don’t use duplication glitches either. These are all guidelines. If you REALLY want to use EE, don’t let me stop you. But don’t be surprised if it kinda messes with the progression. And here are the rules/guidelines for what to DO: - The starting buildings should be at least 1000 blocks away from each other. - Mineshafts should be at least 3x3, with support pillars every 5 blocks. This applies whenever you are underneath more than 3 blocks thick of naturally generated material. - Stuff you find from NPC houses, dungeons, mineshafts, or strongholds can be used regardless of what stage you are on. However, it cannot be crafted into anything else unless you would be able to craft that at your current stage (i.e. if you cannot craft iron tools, you cannot do so with an iron ingot found in a villager’s chest). This applies to nether portals as well. - You can only trade with NPC’s for things that you could legitimately acquire at your current tech level. - You may possess any block, but cannot place blocks that you could not acquire at your current tech level. - Build in a logical pattern. Keep distinct areas separated. For example, do not put a coal-burning factory or nuclear power plant next to residential areas. - Teams are at war from the beginning. Any player may attack the opposing team at any time. - Use at least easy difficulty. Each team goes up in tech levels on its own- one city could be on tier 1, while another could be on tier 2. So without further ado, let’s move on to the challenge. Tier 1 Restrictions - Use only wooden tools. - Do not use any stone or metal.
