This record is for the fastest time to build a functionally flying rocket and break a block with your fist at point Y50 (Y= height coordinate) in Minecraft survival mode.
This record can only be attempted by an individual.
This record is measured in minute(s) and second(s).
This record can only be attempted on the PC bedrock edition only.
For the purpose of this record, a rocket is defined as a self-propelling devise in Minecraft that rises directly upwards, travelling into the sky indefinitely, and is capable of carrying a playable character.
The player must create a default, flat world that has no features or mobs. Starting in 'Creative' mode, the player must place a block of ice at point Y: 50 anywhere in the world. To do this, break a block of grass in the ground and fill it with a block of ice, then stack blocks of ice into a tower until the coordinate readout says Y: 50 at the point where the last block was placed. The player must then break all blocks in the tower leaving just the single ice block at point Y: 50 in the sky and the one embedded in the ground as an indicator for where the one in the sky is. The player must then clear and fill their hot bar with only the materials they wish to use in order to create a rocket. The player is not permitted to use any resources not present in their hot bar after this point. They player is not permitted to mine for any additional resources. Any additional tiles picked up must not be used. The player must switch the game mode to survival for the attempt. The player must start the attempt on the ground with the pause menu open. The player must capture the full attempt set up on video. The attempt guidelines are as follows:
At the sound of a starting signal the player may un-pause the game to begin their attempt and the timer will start. The player must build a rocket like device that can carry them up to point Y: 50 so that the player can break the block of ice with their fist. The design of the rocket is as the claimants discretion. The device does not need to resemble a traditional rocket, it simply must be capable of moving directly upwards due to a mechanical process, that once activated, does not require any further human input. The player is not permitted to simply stack blocks straight up or build a staircase like structure in order to get to point Y: 50. They player may stack blocks or build a staircase as part of the construction of the rocket or to mount it before take off. This staircase is not permitted to be more than 5 blocks in height. The player is not permitted to use any magic items or weapons during the attempt. The player must ride their rocket up to point Y: 50. The timer ends as soon as the player breaks the ice block at point Y: 50 with their fist. No weapons are allowed to be used to break the block, it must be the players fist.
Minimum: 02:30:00 minutes
Video evidence of the entire attempt MUST be provided. Screen capture may be submitted as extra evidence, but camera footage that includes both the player and the player’s screen in full view must be submitted. This footage can begin facing the player and then pan away from the player towards the screen (so that only the screen is in view for the actual gameplay). If recorded this way the footage must be uncut and unedited.
Video evidence requirements: • Video footage of the whole attempt. • Player must show the game disk/card/cartridge, followed by them inserting the game into the console (For PC, player must show the gaming client they are using to load the game and load it from there e.g. Steam, Origin). • The player must show the controller they intend to use for the attempt, pressing all the buttons to show it is unmodified. • The player must show the current software version of their console or PC, followed by the games current software version (For PC players, the game's software version must be up to date, the PC’s operating system does not). • The player must demonstrate that all game settings for the attempt are as requested. • The player must record the whole of the attempt, with a clock or timer clearly visible in shot.
The use of timers in direct-capture footage (e.g. LiveSplit) is permitted as long as there is also full video of the attempt with the player visibly playing the game. The two videos must clearly sync up and not be from two separate attempts. This can be achieved by performing an obvious action on screen and listing the time stamp of the action in the evidence description for both the in-camera and direct-capture footage.
Video evidence must be uploaded directly to Twin Galaxies for consideration. Third party hosted video performances will not be considered. (example: YouTube, Vimeo, etc.)
This record may only be attempted on a PC, an unmodified version of a commercially available video games console or an unmodified arcade cabinet / board. Alterations to hardware and/or software outside of those released or endorsed by the manufacturer will result in disqualification.
Video game records may only be attempted on platforms or systems for which the game in question has been commercially released with the support of the platform manufacturer.
Software or hardware emulators are not permissible except where these are endorsed by both the game’s developers and the platform holders where applicable.
Where the game used for the attempt carries an age rating in Europe or the United States, all participants must be of the minimum age required to buy that game according to its PEGI or ESRB rating, whichever is higher.
