The Sandlot wants you, yes YOU, to build some 3D pixel art!

    For long time Sandlot players, you will remember that I held a nether tunnel building competition for our old Easy server. I asked everyone to build a tunnel with specific dimensions and build restrictions, and then we had a community vote. The top 4 winners had their tunnels created in Easy and replicated for hundreds of blocks in each cardinal direction.

    I want to do this again, but I want it to be more of a community project, where everyone can participate! Our nether tunnels in Easy will look awesome because you guys are all awesome!

    All you have to do is build a 3D pixel art wall mural that has the following rules:
    • The build must be a maximum of 4 blocks deep (which includes the back wall)
    • The build must be a maximum of 10 blocks tall, including the floor
    • The build must have a solid wall at the back of it
    • The build cannot use water
    • The build cannot use custom heads from Creative (custom heads which can be obtained in Easy Survival from mob drops are okay)
    • The build cannot have mobs or entities on it
    • The build cannot have armor stands
    • The build should be spawn proof to the best of your abilities, so that we do not have zombified piglins in the tunnels. Try to use string, carpets, and slabs to minimize spawn areas as much as possible.
    • The build must be built in Easy or Creative
    • The build must follow all our normal rules
    The build can be as long as you want. If you want to build a massive 50 block long mural, go for it!

    You can also construct walls on the sides so that your build doesn't clash with another build right next to yours, or you can build with a friend to join two builds together.

    As long as you put some effort into your build, I think every Sandlotian has a chance to have their work immortalized on our Easy server for everyone to enjoy! Here is an example of the type of quality I am expecting (the red and white wool is for you to easily see the dimensions you must follow):

    Just post here how I can find it, and make sure you don't delete the build until we can rebuild it in Easy survival. Thanks!

    No maps, because they are entities. 1.16 blocks are okay to use!

    by 'deep' do you mean width? because 'deep' and 'tall' kinda seem the same to me

    Does the 4 block deep limit include walls too? Or can the floor be 4 blocks and then add walls onto each side?

    I have two questions :p

    1 ) Edited out : Floof has let me use their plot :) thanks floof!

    2) Also, is there a time limit? With a larger scale build like this I don't want to run out of time :p

    There's no time limit, we will just have a lot of ugly netherrack to look at in the mean time. :)

    c0w meant 4 blocks wide including the wall, meaning you will need to shorten it by one.. it looks amazing though! nice job!
