Presenting Gravity: A Minr Dropper Collaborative Event

Hello everyone! I think many of us can all recall a moment on the server where a player asks us “Where are the droppers?” “What’s the code for Dropping 2?” and “How do you drop in The 256 Drop?”. A desire for more Dropper maps is present throughout the server. This event will allow green+ members to contribute a highly requested map type to the server. As this is taking place over the holiday season many of us may find ourselves with more free time than during the fall or spring while others may be focused on being at home with friends and family. For this reason, we wanted to create 2 unique ways of participating in Gravity, one with a high level of commitment and one with a low level of commitment.

The first thing though is, what is a Dropper?
A Dropper requires the player to jump from a high place and land safely at the bottom without dying to fall damage. A small pool of water is often used as the goal for players to land in. While falling, the player will encounter obstructing obstacles that make landing in the water difficult. Once the player lands safely, the Dropper is considered completed and the player must go to the exit.

Now, the 2 main ways of participating in Gravity:

#1. Create your own full Dropper map:

This method is for if you want to participate at a high level in this collaboration. Create your own, full-fledged, themed Dropper map. These maps will be submitted through the standard Board process and will be released to FFA as they come. (Please indicate that the map is for Gravity in the map submission thread) The maps will also be added to the unique Gravity hub as well as the Dropper section at spawn. If the map is submitted by the deadline and released to FFA, the creator(s) will be rewarded with a unique Title (TBD) as a thank you for creating a full map.

General Info about Method #1:
  • In order for these maps to qualify as part of Gravity, they must be submitted by the February 1st deadline.
  • In order for these maps to qualify as part of Gravity, they must be in the defined build area, accessible through /warp gravity.*
  • Full maps may include puzzle elements, as seen in The 256 Drop and Dropping 2, but the map must primarily be Dropper based.
  • These maps can be any difficulty that you would like it to be.
  • You may work with as many other people as you would like in creating the map, all creators will receive the reward.
  • This is full creative freedom, create something awesome!
#2. Create one unique Dropper level that will be added to the collaborative map, Gravity:

This method is for if you want to participate at a low level in this collaboration. Create a singular dropper level of unique design. These unique levels will be combined with other submitted levels to create a purple variable map with X amount of stages. If the level is submitted by the deadline, the creator(s) will be rewarded with a unique Anvil Hat as a thank you for creating a level.

General Info about Method #2:
  • Each stage of Gravity will be immediately accessible to all players in FFA.
  • Hosts will determine the actual format of the Gravity map after the event concludes.
  • Hosts will also construct a unique hub for these stages to go in when the map releases.
  • The hosts will determine whether or not the levels/stages are FFA ready.
  • These levels must be submitted by the February 1st deadline in order to be included in the Gravity map.
  • These levels must be built inside the defined build area to be included in Gravity, accessible through /warp gravity
  • You may work with as many people as you would like to create a level. All creators will receive the reward.

#2a. Map Requirements for Dropper Levels:
  • Levels must have a title, a map code, a start sign, and a spot for the end sign. The end sign may be off to the side, but please don’t make the player extensively search for it. This end sign will teleport the player back to /warp gravity while the event is in progress.
  • Landing safely must be intuitive to the player. The most common way is by having the player land in water. You may use other techniques, such as ladders, scaffolding, and cobwebs, but it should be obvious what the player is aiming for.
  • Levels must be pure Dropper. Please do not add the ability to parkour down a Dropper level or a puzzle element.

#2b. Submitting a Dropper Level:
  • Please use THIS THREAD to submit Dropper levels. Simply reply to this thread using the following format to submit your level.
  • Use the “Info” section for anything that you would like to say about the map. Ex. A description, what difficulty you think it is.
  • “Start Coords” are the approximate location of the start sign of the level.
  • “End Coords” is the approximate location of the end sign. While the event is in progress, the end signs will teleport players back to /warp gravity.
  • Once your level is submitted, a host will add your level to /warp gravity for other players to play/test.

Time Limit:
You may submit your dropper map or level from now until February 1st your local time.

gravity.minr.org:
  • In order to make dropper creation easier for you guys, Ricky and Hex have set up a test server where you can use WorldEdit to create your droppers. Your creations from this test server will be transferred over to the Gravity build area using schematics. This can be used to create both full dropper maps and dropper levels. You do not have to use this test server to create your levels/maps, it is simply for those that want to use WorldEdit. You can access this test server through gravity.minr.org. NOTE: The event server has a whitelist. To gain access, simply ask one of the event organizers or reply to Hex’s thread with that request: https://forums.minr.org/threads/gravity-event-server-information.4853/
/warp gravity:
  • This will take you to the designated build area in Theta. We have created a large area and removed all the terrain down to Y = 1, this means that you will have the maximum Y length to work with while you build. All levels must be built inside of this defined area in order to be included in Gravity. All full maps must be built in this area in order to be included in Gravity.*
    • *If you would like to build a full map in another unique location, such as the End or over certain biomes, you do not have to build in the defined area. Please verify with a host before you begin building if you wish to do this. If you can, build in the defined area.
Misc:
  • You may submit as many full maps as you please.
  • You may submit as many levels as you please.
  • Please feel free to reach out to a host if you need help finishing a level or a map, we’d be happy to help!
Lethal fall damage height is 24 blocks.
  • Max build height is Y = 256
  • Average Dropper height used in current Minr Dropper Maps:
    • Dropping 2: 200 blocks
    • The 256 Drop: 50-100 blocks
    • Nightmare: 150-200 blocks

The Super Cool™ Hosts for Gravity:
  • Autre
  • Bailey06
  • spolendina
  • TheHexer

This was a lot of information but we hope that this post will be proactive in answering any questions you may have. With the announcement of the event, comes the opening of the build area. We can't wait to see the gravity defying builds you create. Have a great holiday season!

Start Coords: 5288 154 -6542

End Coords: 5287 3 -6567

Info: This design was originally something used in a project between Moist and I, but after it was abandoned, I wanted to bring it back with this dropper. This will most likely be one of the easier droppers (comparable to cranium). Enjoy!
