Back on December 15th, we kicked off a huge new content contest, this one centered around Star Wars-themed creations.  Entrants were encouraged to create anything at all in Minecraft which carried a Star Wars theme.  Now, after a massive number of submissions and a great deal of combing through so many incredible submissions, we finally settled on the following ten entries - check it out!


Entrant: 4dragonking
Type: Mod
Time to Create: 16.5 hrs
Link: Star Wars - Power of the Force

Have you ever played Minecraft and thought to yourself, "This could be greatly enhanced by having force powers to defeat my enemies"?  If so, this mod may be for you!  It has a pretty extensive feature list - check it out!


Entrant: DeltaBoss
Type: Video
Time to Create: Approx. 1 day
Link: 500x375 Star Wars Pixel Art

Pixel art has been a staple of Minecraft almost as long as the game has existed.  While amateur artists like myself tend to stick with Zelda sprites, some artists take the concept to another level, and this is one such example.  Definitely worth a watch!


Entrant: Astirac; Keebler1
Type: Construction
Time to Create: 2 weeks
Link: X-Wing Construction

Fans of the original Star Wars movies (and many of the games of the time) will instantly recognize this iconic X-Wing space ship, and it is quite a build indeed!  Highly detailed and artfully arranged, this model is quite inspiring.

Entrant: ParadiseDecayTM
Type: Adventure Map
Time to Create: 5 months
Link: "Rise of the Rebellion" Mod

Adventure maps are a popular form of Minecraft-based entertainment, and this masterpiece definitely stands out!  Complete with custom textures, clever puzzles and a host of content, any adventure map fans will appreciate the amount of work and detail that went into this gem - how fast can you complete it?

Entrant: MrMadGameplay
Type: Video/Construction
Time to Create: 4 hours
Link: Time-lapse Construction of AT-AT Walker

What is better than seeing an awe-inspiring construction in Minecraft?  Seeing be built from the ground up, of course!  Watch this impressive AT-AT model be built from scratch in this incredible time-lapse video!

Entrant: ultek
Type: Video/Construction
Time to Create: Approx. 2 months
Link: MineWars Prologue Trailer

This incredible machinima has to be seen to be believed - it's hard to name any one thing about it that stands out, as the entire sequence is incredible.  Give it a watch!

Entrant: Aandolaf
Type: Construction
Time to Create: Approx. 6 hours
Link: Battle of Hoth Scene

This scene faithfully recreates the Battle of Hoth, from "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back".  Each time I view this picture, I spot something I missed in prior viewings, owing to the amount of detail present - give it a look!

Entrant: birchbeater
Type: Construction/Video
Time to Create: Approx. 2 weeks
Link: The Millennium Falcon

This incredible build was shown in a previous news post, and speaks for itself!  This replica of the Millennium Falcon is true to the source, with incredible attention to the tiniest details.  Check it out above, and in our preview video showing it off!

Entrant: Joe12o
Type: Mod
Time to Create: 10-12 hours
Link: The Star Wars Mod

This mod adds a host of features to your Minecraft experience, including new NPCs (Jedi, Clone and Dark Jedi) which interact with each other as well as players, tons of craftable lightsabers, and more - give it a look!

Entrant: dboss1194
Type: Construction/Video
Time to Create: ???
Link: X-Wing Construction Video

This video spotlights an amazing X-Wing replica, and includes a detailed walk-through tour of the vessel.  The author's video includes commentary on the construction process, and points out the various functional details and mechanisms of the X-Wing, take a look!

Congratulations to all of our winners!  A huge "thank you" goes out to each and every participant of this contest, you guys were amazing!  It was immensely difficult to pick merely 10 winners from so many great entries, and every one of them was incredible.

Keep an eye out for future content contests, as we may up the prizes offered - as well as upping the difficulty of the contest itself!

This is awesome, though i hoped to see a texture pack among these, as a texture is something a bit useful for maps and such.

The first pixel art is a fake.  It was not made by hand.

It might have been made by hand, but definitely not during "approx. 1 day". A week sounds more plausible.
Not that it takes away from how good it is.
