Tips & Tricks for building in Minecraft

We wanted to share some tips and tricks on how to build amazing things! Here are some things to think about when you are drafting your build.

  1. Elevation
    Different levels of elevation and height transforms a build to the next level – making it feel more natural and a part of the world.
  2. Detail
    Incorporate detail in the small things. A grandiose build is extravagant because of the detail put into things you might not see right away.
  3. Be creative
    It is easier said than done; however, explore your mind and do something you might not have initially thought of. Your best ideas are never your first!
  4. Try anything
    If you have a wild idea that might seem crazy, it doesn't hurt to try! After all, you can submit more than one build into the competition ;).
