Leaderboard finally in Minecraft

It is now possible to view the Leaderboard in Minecraft itself with the help of the ImageMaps plugin running on a Spigot server.

To do this:

  • Create a Spigot Minecraft server
  • Add the ImageMaps plugin
  • Change the EXPORT_PATH to be that of the ImageMaps input directory
  • Change the EXPORT_AS_IMAGE to be true

More information can be found at the bottom of the README on github or you can have a quick look through the following video of how to do it.

30 Day LEGO Challenge

Each day a new block will appear with a button attached.  Click the button and be transported to a new island where signposts will inform you of the days challenge.

Please remember to be respectful to other peoples creations and work together.  NO lava or TNT, just fun building.
