Winners of Minecraft World's Weekly Staff Choice Awards: Week 1

There have been a ton of cities and towns popping up all over the map recently, and I'm thrilled that one of them is the winner of this week's Staff Choice Awards. I'm still waiting for the other builders to complete their masterpieces on the server, and as soon as they are finished, I will definitely upload some videos of them and show them off to you all!

Want to see the previous week's awards (featuring Guitar Hero)? Here you go!

Grand Prize Winners: NEWDeStRoY1 & Maxbeniuk2

NEWDeStRoY1 has been working tirelessly on his City of the Gods, and it has certainly paid off! The materials used were iron blocks and glowstone, which really gave it that royal look and feel. My favorite part about the temple is the lighting techniques he used to accent the ceiling, so be sure to take a look at the pictures below! It's absolutely stunning, and if you would like to see it in-game, the warp is /warp cityofgods.

Maxbeniuk2 helped him out with finishing off the pillars, so I didn't want to leave him out!

The second build shown below is the Fountain of the Gods, and it's absolutely gorgeous. The way he incorporated water mechanics into the design definitely took this fountain to the next level.

(1) Temple (left) and Fountain of the Gods (right). (2) Unique lighting technique casting a star pattern on the Temple's ceiling. (3) The second build, Fountain of the Gods.

NEWDeStRoY1 is in the process of completing another build in City of the Gods, so if you would like to help, be sure to ask!

Grand Prize Won

  • Contributor rank in game + DisguiseCraft: Iron Golem (/d irongolem)! 

DisguiseCraft is the exact same thing as Mob Disguise, but since Mob Disguise wasn't updated for 1.2.3, we are using this new amazing plugin. Not only does it have the option of colored sheep, but also baby animals and mobs! DisguiseCraft allows you to turn into a mob in Minecraft. You will not see yourself as that specific mob, but everyone else will think you're actually an Iron Golem!
