Winter Build Contest – Nether Wall

The Wither Farm that has been under excavation for over a year is almost finished – which means construction is about to begin!

This means we need some great inspiration to make an awesome building inside – starting with walls!

The first build contest of 2024 is to build a section of a wall. The winner’s design will be incorporated into the main structure to be built in the Spring and Summer. This build contest is to build a small section of a wall (so we can vote on designs).

Wall Building Rules

  • Size: Your wall section must be no shorter than 15 blocks tall, and no more than 5 blocks wide. It can be as long as you like.
  • Materials: Your wall must be primarily built of materials found in the Nether. You can use blocks from other worlds, but they cannot take up more than 30% of the total blocks of your submission.
  • Other Restrictions: The final build will be built in survival, so do not incorporate ancient debris, large amounts of gilded blackstone, ect in your submission that would make “scaling up” impossible.


The winning builder will recieve:

  • 9 blocks of Netherite
  • 1 single chest of Gilded Blackstone
  • 1 single chest of Crying Obsidian
  • 1 single chest of Reinforced Deepslate
  • Plus any Smithing Template of your choosing


If you wish to participate, build your wall and post a screenshot of both the wall and its coordinates to the MinecraftLovers Discord Channel, in the “Screenshots” chat.

The contest is active now, and the winner will be chosen on March 15, 2024.

Happy Building!
