Bristol’s first Buildcon

In April 2016 KWMC hosted Bristol’s first Buildcon: two days of Minecraft, making and coding.

During the two-day event young peple could show off their Minecraft skills by taking part in our Build the Future Competition, develop new Minecraft characters, create new backgrounds and environments and construct their own robots in a Build a Robot masterclass. The weather was glorious and we held a Giant Jenga competition outside, while indoors we had stalls of limited-edition handmade merchandise.

Carrying on Building…

If you’d like to check out the Minecraft worlds the young people imagined or carry on developing the world you made at BuildCon, you can download the world files from each session. You can place them in your Minecraft save folder on your home device.

If you would like to play on these maps online or using multiplayer, you may need the file, which will be included in the Dropbox folders alongside the respective world folders. Please note: This one file will work with all of the world files.

These are Minecraft 1.9.2, with CraftBukkit for 1.9.2 Mod Kit. KWMC takes no responsibility for the content of these files and is unable to offer you technical assistance in using these maps, setting them up, or any issues that result from using them. They are purely here for users who have some knowledge of the way world save files are used, and who are able to use them straight away.

A little background…

Minecraft is a sandbox construction game created by Mojang AB founder Markus Persson, and inspired by the Infiniminer, Dwarf Fortress and Dungeon Keeper games. Gameplay involves players interacting with the game world by placing and breaking various types of blocks in a three-dimensional environment. In this environment, playerscan build creative structures, creations, and artwork on multiplayer servers and singleplayer worlds across multiple game modes.

KWMC were one of the first places in the South West (and the first in South Bristol) to offer dedicated Minecraft and Roblox sessions. We have 40 educational Minecraft licenses which open up the amazing possibilities of Minecraft in a safe and controllable way. After a lot of interest and request, we are very proud to be running Bristol’s first dedicated Minecraft event for young people (and those who are young at heart!).
