CutieKiwi's Creative- Build Comps

Hi guys,
Remember my post about Mikeland Crafters? Well, this week, I'm going to tell you about one of my favourite features of the server- Buildcomps!

Buildcomps are also known as Quickbuild, because you get a certain amount of time to create a themed build. The Crafters did a Quickbuild competition as well (see the post here), but on this server, there are prizes for the best build!

A few days ago, I competed in two Buildcomps on the server. The first one I did was themed "Under The Sea"- I made a big pink clam and came first equal. The second one I did was themed "Fantasy" and I made a giant rainbow unicorn and came second equal with the same person I came first equal with! :) The winner of the Fantasy comp created a mushroom forest and ruins of a building.

Buildcomps are super fun- try doing one with your friends!

CutieKiwi's Creative- MaKey MaKey Minecraft!

Hi Minecrafters,
About a year ago, I ordered a thing called a MaKey MaKey (which is similar to an Arduino). I love the MaKey MaKey, and one day had the idea to play Minecraft using it! GENIUS! :) Anyway, all you really need is a conductive material (e.g a coin), a MaKey MaKey & alligator clips, and or course, Minecraft.

First, connect the USB cable to your computer like you would normally. Then "connect it to Earth" by either holding an alligator clip, or attaching it to your skin somehow (The Crafters do not take any responsibility for injuries caused by clipping the alligator clips to your skin. :P) Then wire up the alligator clips from the conductive material to the MaKey MaKey's controls (use the same ones as your Minecraft controls......) and then you can play using the MaKey MaKey!

I hope you have fun doing this- I did! :) If you want to check out the MaKey MaKey website, click here. Comment below for more and subscribe to our YouTube Channel!

Shinekiwi's Super Awesome Things to Build - Giant Tree...

Hey guys,
I was on one of the MAP's I downloaded, Vertoak City, and I saw a cool build that I wanted to try and redo in my own way, so I went on to my tryouts world, The Everything, and I recreated it. A quick warning: If you put lava in a glass tank inside a wood building, don't think it won't burn. It will!...

Here is my (well sort of my) recreated build. Things like this giant tree are really cool, and you can make giant blocks etc. At the moment I am working on a giant melon!

Remember, it's always cool to recreate something!

CutieKiwi's Creative- Camp Half Blood

I may not have an epic shapeshifting pen/ sword, but I do have a diamond sword.... maybe. This week, I'm going to give you a tour of Camp Half Blood.

I love the Percy Jackson series, so I decided to make a Camp Half Blood. I've made every single cabin (not exactly to the description, but I've tried!) including the minor gods- trust me, I've checked on the website! I've made it into a LAN world with my friends, and currently we play on survival, battling monsters using godly parent tailored weapons. Here is a photopeach to show you the Camp.

CutieKiwi's Creative- Plane

Hi Minecrafters,
I've been working on this for a while (if two days counts as a while....) and I have recently finished it. This is similar to a build I have made before on a different computer, but I recreated it on my Concept World- Bigger and better! Okay, what is it? Well, as the title hints subtlety (not), I built a plane.

I built an Airbus A380 as it's one of the biggest planes that currently exist! I made two classes- First Class and Second Class. First Class is significantly better (but more exclusive :P) as there are beds for an overnight flight or just a little nap. There is also a restaurant for First Class members. Here is a Haiku Deck of some of the photos.

Created with Haiku Deck, the free presentation app

I had lots of fun making it- do you like it? Tell me in the comments below!

Shinekiwi's Super Awesome Things to Build - Superflat?!

Hey Minecrafters,
So I was on my world, you know, "The Everything", well, supposedly, it's superflat. While I was building my giant woolly mountains, I saw some odd shapes that definitely weren't builds. I flew closer, and there I discovered....

(This one includes a mineshaft!)

A huge chunk of a default land! This was so weird! This goes for miles, and I'm wondering if it was a glitch. It sure will be a great place to explore on survival! :) Please comment if this has happened to you before.

Have fun if you discover this!

Shinekiwi's Super Awesome Things to Build - Giant Woolly Mountains

Hey Minecrafters!

A quick post on what to build; Giant Woolly Mountains!!!!! (Why? Why not?!?!?!?!?!) These look a little odd, but they are totally awesome! Once again, I built this on my tryouts world, "The Everything". I built my mountains in a rainbow, and my fellow crafters are planning to live in them, so here is a picture:

I made them out of wool, complete with a glowstone top. I built these on Soartex Fanver, an awesome texture pack that is one of SkyKiwi and mine's faves.

(Pinky, I promise to build you a pink one!!!!)
