    If you think you have what it takes as a talented builder, than this post is for you. The goal of this team is to continually add new content to our server for users and new users a like to enjoy. There are not any set "rules" as far as what you guys are to do and as such, we want/expect you to build mazes, builds, quests, and more.

    Think this is something you want to be part of? You get exclusive access to a new forum, a new tag on the forum, as well as a new tag in game. This is NOT being a mod or member of the staff though. This is for the person who loves to build and show off their skills. There is no set of requirements as well, just have to be a decent builder and willing to put in at least 5 hours a week working on new content for the server.

    Apply below with your ingame name, why you should be selected and coords to some of your work. I would like to add an addition 3-4 members to this team.

    ps: content creation team also helps plan new things for the server before we go live and discuss with the public. Your ideas are wanted!

    Foose, we will never discourage you from doing this. The purpose of this team was to not have to worry about mod duties at the same time. Don't have to worry about xray check, grief reverts, abuse from players, bans, kicks, ban reports etc which can be extremely time consuming. We wanted a team JUST for the purpose of creating content. It would be a "fun" job and hopefully not become overwhelming. As you've seen in the past since you've been mod, its difficult to get everyone on the same page to accomplsh things. This has been my vision for a good 6-10 months now and I think we just need to expand the team.

    Without new content, people get bored and leave. Our average player count is under 10 now, including during peak hours where we were 20-30 after the reset. We need to add new content on a weekly basis to keep the players interested and not bored.

    I've thought about it, and while I do not have many ideas, i am on the server 5 hours + everyday, and along with events at my arena, X 200 Z 140, I can come up with weekly weekend events.

    I have experience building a wide range of builds and I think people found them pretty decent. I do have some questions though: In which map and which kind of content should be made? In which way will building be assisted?

    Helping is definitely a great feature but on the content creation team we need explosive ideas, awesome builds things that really catch peoples attention. Even going out to other servers to see what kinds of content they have and what ideas maybe we can use or redo in our own MMC kinda way. Whatever it takes to keep the fun, interesting content flowing.

    Your someone Im definitely interested in seeing joining our CCT. Your buildings are big, eye catching and not to boost you up but petty flawless from the things I have seen. I think you could bring a lot to the table for us bro and if interested Im pretty sure fffizzz and the rest of the CCT would love to have you.

    Red, while we dont have any definitive plans, we're actively working on dynamic content and a very versitile questing system. In regards to not having any plans, that's one of the things we're hoping the CCT can help overcome. In regards to supplying materials needed for these functions, we're still discussing internally, but it would likely be GM. The exception (same as always), if you abuse it, you lose it (ie: giving / selling materials gained using GM).

    I suppose we could also supply infinate chests (protected of course) with the materials needed for said build, but this would be time consuming for mods/admins to constantly update when you need more or different materials.

    On that note, I'd love to have you on that team Red. I know what you're capable of and if you accept, I'll add you to the proper groups.

    Oh yeah i can definitely do this. Ive already been helping the server in the ways i can and im already one of the most active members of this community talking to you guys every day. i was just trying to say that im mostly helping ppl and building machines and stuff for my base and that i havent really buildt something worth seeing but i do have the building part of minecraft in me. But if this isnt believable and you guys already got ur members then thats fine ill just keep helping in my own way as always. :/

    I do enjoy hrad helping as much as he can, he's good at redstone as I am good but he's been able to figure stuff out that I cant, and is all ways willing to help with any project that he can if the help is needed, I'm sure I can test him on his building skills, and see where it go's from there, as I have seen things he can do from another test server he was working on and was really good at what he was doing, I know that when I work on content for the server it's a struggle as many of us may have had, something doesn't look right, doesn't work well, and many other things, hrad has been there when I could not get the help from others and was always willing to test something, creating content is just not building something that looks nice, but also making sure all the parts move alone with it, doors, traps, parkor, droppers, dispensers, piston doors.... I could keep going on,

    At the moment I'm thinking about it, the problem is how active I can be. I don't want to make promises I can't fulfill

    I hope I'll be a candidate for this; I am not active in game as there is nothing for me to do but if there's a need for me I'll be there. My days off are Mon-Wed and Friday. I've got loads of Free time, just hollar. You can even reach me by phone, if you'd like. Two Eight One - 2 IV Eight - (8-1) Nien 5 Tres [Obscured from bots reading it]

    Edit: I prefer text messages over phone calls, if you call immediately state your name/username or I'll just put the phone down and ignore it till the other end hangs up (great for dealing with auto-calls). If texting simply give your Username and I'll know.

    Additional Edit: Friday I have pool league and am otherwise practicing pool when not at home. Phone is optimal but emailing me at vdvinitiative (at) (g)mail dot com [bot censor] is as good as a text. Same details apply.

    Another Additional Edit: I suppose the app process is wonky for me but...

    I'm incredibly skilled [My old portfolio used to advertise my part time "map making" jop in the past. Was short lived due to lack of clients but made some money before shutting it down - all content is solely made by me and me alone taking approximately 20 hours to build as my first world edited map] http://imgur.com/a/e0wqB (work that's years old)

    [A map I sold, made by me and me alone. Took approximately 7 hours to build after experienced world editing] http://imgur.com/a/93Ax8 (more work that's a couple years old) and I lost my HDD's a few months ago so I don't have recent pictures but I'm sure Fizz remembers the (admittedly "too much") hub I made.

    Additional Details:
    - Am skilled with basic and intermediate uses of redstone, and will learn as needed.
    - Able to see patterns and symmetry as well as master plan mega builds and small builds alike.
    - Is adept in color contrast as well as making functional meet fantastic in detail and operational form.
    - Writing is a Real Life hobby and talent and could be useful for adventure and scenario maps.
    - Catering to others desires is now a skill I've been working on due to the "one man army" being defective.
    - Incredibly efficient and able to store massive amounts of design material by memory
    - Has previously built a hub world for MMC; multiple towns in game; Adept with worldedit and its uses for symmetry, mass production, and terrain balance.
    - Can see the design before it is complete, or go on a "random generation" mentality of building as I go.
    - Capable of innovation and applying it in ways that make certain aspects stand out.
    - As we all are with MC, very artistic and ultimately a perfectionist.

    I think that's enough info, yes?

    Final Edit: (Minor punctuation and context into the galleries posted)

    No worries, understandable. Part of the reason the requirement for hours is so nill.. 5 hours isn't too much, of course I wont stop people from doing more than that either. :)

    Glad to see your interested in this NIko. The one main point that I can bring up is the scale of your builds. I'm sure we can find a use for some of those larger builds, but I'd venture to guess the majority of builds and quest development would be much smaller.

    Thanks for showing interest, I'm sure I'll be in touch soon.
