The Challenge:

Coal Minute is a challenge to see how many pieces of coal you can collect within the first 60 seconds of spawning into a new world.


General Rules:

1. No mods, hacks, or cheats.

2. Do not use bonus chests.


Ranked/Leaderboard Rules (in addition to the General Rules):

1. Use the seed "coalmin" to create the world.  (Please let me know what you think of the idea of using a single seed to make it more fair).

2. Must record and post a video on YouTube of your screen (with any sort of equipment/software).  This video can be edited, but no part of the challenge can be cut out.

3. Embed or link your video in a reply below, or send your video to Delta249er via Twitter, Facebook, Google+.

How to Use the Coal Minute Mod:

1. Load up any world
2. Press 'C' to open the config menu
3. Tweak settings how you desire

- Client login is best, registers last automatically

- World load is OK, but it registers earlier and doesn't care if you have to wait to load chunks

- Button Press is mapped to 'B' by default, and can be changed in "Controls" settings menu

- The mapped button can also be used to pause the active timer ingame.

4. Load up your challenge world5. The challenge begins!

I think you should start with a wood pick axe to make it a little more doable

Board of factions and other dumb game modes? We have an awesome new PvP based game mode called city. But that is only one of the many games we have check us out some time for plot me, infection, hunger games, and more.

I could create a timer mod fairly easily. What do you think you'd like to see all in the mod?

How about the ability to set a time in the options menu and set what event you wish to start the timer, such as start a new world, join a server, press a button, and then it to play a sound when the timer finishes.
The problem with the truth, is that it never lies.

Sounds good maxpowa!  In addition to what PopuliMinistrum said, the ability the change when the timer makes a sound (or when the time ends) in intervals like two, five, and 10 minutes would be useful as I may add multiple tiers of the challenge.

I could make a tier of the Coal Minute challenge where you start with a wooden pickaxe.  I think having to make the pickaxe is all part of the fun.

Should be easy enough. I'll start work on it tomorrow morning, likely have a test version available by tomorrow evening.

Really nice job!  If you would like, I have a higher resolution logo/banner here: http://www.delta249e...inutebanner.png

If possible, it would be cool if it was possible to change the color of the timer because in some biomes, like snow and desert biomes, it's a little bit hard to see.

I will add the information from your post to the main post.

Thanks again!

Version 0.0.2 is now available. It has 7 options for completion dings, 5 of which are customizable! Get it here!

Changes:
   No longer can you enter negative time and have an infinite looping timer.
   Sound system addition, 2 built in sounds and 5 user ones. Press C ingame for more details.
   Timer background added, now should be clearly visible in any lighting/biome

There's no real benefit to a higher res one because it would need to be scaled down ingame to the size of the one I have on there :P

SwiftSly,you should try resetting the leader board.


For a seed,I would suggest it to be Coal Minute

Btw I got 11 coal on the seed and the timer on.

Good luck everyone!
