Escape Room - Rules

BUILDING CONSTRAINTS

Your creations must be done in creative mode with a flat world.

Build a room from which the player will have to escape! This room has a way in and a way out.

Enigmas, logical systems, labyrinths, fights and obstacles are some of the mechanism which will block the player to find the way out, or making it alive.

The players of your escape room will start the enigma in the inside of the room in the blue area. They won’t be allowed to destroy anything, they will have to solves the enigmas to find their way out!

Rules :

  1. You have to build at least 1 enigma with electricity.
  2. Your enigmas have to start after the door at the end of the corridor.
  3. You are free to modify the inside of the room after the door (decoration, walls), as long as you do not modify its shape. Red blocks are here to indicate the limits of the room (height and floor)
  4. In case you need it, two dedicated spots are available for your complex electrical installations, which is where the floor is red and the sides glazed. You can put your cables through the walls of the enigma room to the dedicated spots ( do not forget to build back the wall).
  5. Regarding the exit, you are free to do whatever you want (walls, lasers, gap, door), you don’t have to use a door.
  6. You must use the given room.
  7. You shall never go out of the RED ZONE.
  8. You can never change the outside shape of the room.
  9. Do not change or modify the door. It is also forbidden to move the door.
  10. You cannot put your cables on the outside of the red zone. You have to stuck in the red blocs mark out (metal or glass). You simply mustn’t touch anything outside of the red zone. It is a construction constraint for complex circuits: you’ll have to optimize!

The procedure to follow:

  1. Based on the empty room posted on the Steam workshop, build your own escape room. Fill your room in a creative universe. You can find the empty room here
  2. You’ll have to set the player’s start point by tapping the “/setspawn” command right in the blue area.

  3. Test your escape room in a custom universe* (generated from your save in creative mode, in the saves loading window). Make sure you actually have a way out of the room!

TIPS

  • If you let some equipment to the player or give the player access to an item, put the item in a safe.
  • If you want to redo the map, you’ll have to load it again through the Steam workshop.
  • Note: If you test your universe and you’ve already resolved your enigmas, do not share this universe because otherwise it will be shared already finished. Only share a custom universe that have not been played at all.

A FEW ADVICES TO IMPROVE YOUR ODDS:

To make building easier in creative mode:

  • F2 enables you to fly
  • “Undo-Redo” can be done using the “home” and “end” keys
  • The recorder enables you to “copy-paste”
  • The swapper enables you to change a large amount of material in one shot (only on connected blocks)
  • The swapper can also be used as an eraser if it is used without ammo in the selected ammo slot (use X to change ammo)
  • The N key enables you to change the way walls of non-cubic blocks are filled
  • The V key enables you to toggle the alignment of the blueprints (grid snapping)
  • And many more useful shortcuts that you can find in the game’s options (in the construction and advanced construction parts)
  • It is really important that your picture is correctly centered, do not hesitate to take different screenshots before sending us the best image.
