Hello everyone!

We hope you already had the chance to explore and enjoy the new blocks since the 1.18 update.
In celebration of the massive 1.18 update, we are proud to announce Shadow Kingdom's 7th Building Contest:

Just like the last contests, the theme will be decided by your votes. This time we recycled 2 of the popular themes in previous polls and added two brand new themes!

Timetable:
  • February 25th - March 1st: Theme Poll.
  • March 4th: Theme announcement, building begins!
  • April 2nd: Building ends, judging starts.
  • April 10th: Results are published.
Poll:
  • The Wild Wild West:
    West America, 1800. The scorching sun causes many to stay inside. A tumbleweed, a saloon, the sheriff’s office and a railroad form the main setting for this Wild Wild West Contest. Get your horses ready, hold your lasso tight and make sure to be on time for the duel at noon!
  • Space Exploration:
    T-10 seconds and counting, Activate main engine hydrogen burnoff system.
    T-6 seconds, Ground launch sequencer commands main engine start.
    T-0 seconds, Solid Rocket Boosters, and we got lift-off!
    Spaceships and cities. Asteroids and astronauts. The very furthest corners of the universe are your playground in this space-themed building contest.
  • Pirates and Parrots:
    Ahoy, Matey! Allow me to invite you to my mighty ship. Hoist the sails and climb into the crows nest. Next stop on our epic travels is palm tree island. Together with my crew of buccaneers we'll conquer the seven seas in search of the treasure. Can you conquer the contest with this theme?
  • Magic In All Of Us:
    Dear Witches and Wizards,
    You have been selected to reveal our hidden wizarding world to the people around you. The range of fantasy creatures and objects that are present in this setting is just enchanting.

Hello everybody!

I am excited to finally announce a huge update for our Creative Build Discovery server! Due to the many new features in 1.18, most importantly the extended height limits, we decided to skip several versions so you can experiment with the new possibilities as soon as possible. :D

Since this update requires us to work on our actual server, we will have take it offline for several days. This is to ensure that the worlds are updated correctly and all the plugin data is converted without any issues. If everything works out as intended, you will be able to continue building right where you left. You will keep all your builds and ranks! This is our current schedule:
  • Jan 31st: We will take the server offline.
  • Jan 31st- Feb 3rd: Update of the server.
  • Feb 4th: Release of CreativeBD 1.18
Please keep in mind that these dates are just an estimate and things might always take a bit longer than expected. We will keep you updated though! ;)

The 1.18 update hasn't been released that long ago, so there are bound to be some things that do not work perfectly yet (What is the opposite of good? - Perfect). According to our preliminary testing the most features should work already though. We will release a list of all existing issues with the release on February 4th, so you are all aware.

Big shout out to @JST who did/will do most of the testing and work!

Best of luck!
