:::::::::::::::::: What is Ylands ::::::::::::::::::

Ylands is like: 

๐ŸŽฎ Roblox mixed with โš’๏ธ Minecraft

๐ŸŽฎ Roblox  -> it's a platform for people to make games, publish them to an already-active community of players, & monetize them. 

โš’๏ธ Minecraft  -> It's highly-important DLC "Exploration" is like Minecraft 2.0

 :::::::::::::::::: Download Ylands ::::::::::::::::::

๐Ÿ”ฝIt's free:

You do NOT need the DLC to take part. 

:::::::::::::::::: Who are you? ::::::::::::::::::

We are P1 Creators, a team of people  who work together to win the competitions & split the benefits. Our team won 1st and 2nd in the first such competition. 

โœ… We made the lobby for Ylands

โœ… We won 1st & 2nd in the first competition

 :::::::::::::::::: Why become a Ylands game developer? ::::::::::::::::::

1๏ธโƒฃ Amazing community - Somehow the relaxing theme and bright colors bring some of the most friendly, kind and generous people in the gaming world. I feel so lucky to lead such a positive community. 

2๏ธโƒฃ Simple - Literally anyone can learn game development in Ylands. It's a great way to begin to learn how to code! Also, everyone is super-helpful and willing to video-chat & get you un-stuck. 

3๏ธโƒฃ Paid-to-learn - Tencent does these competitions often, in no other game do you get rewarded so much for having fun! 

4๏ธโƒฃ 1 month projects - No dragging your feet for years only to see no one download your game. Build a game in 1-2 months & it's celebrated & appreciated by thousands. 

5๏ธโƒฃ Huge potential - I believe Ylands will be the next Roblox but with a more-mature audience. I talk with the people at Tencent and I get the sense this is their big sandbox play. They are putting tons of resources behind it and are making it part of programming education in China.

:::::::::::::::::: Game  requirements ::::::::::::::::::

โœ… Mobile-compatibility required -- Aka don't set your game to PC ONLY in the settings. 

โŒ Avoid excessive violence, sexual themes, horror, NSFW content. 

โŒ Don't make something massive, keep it simple, fun and not-laggy. Too many large ships or complicated cars cause lag. Weld objects to reduce lag.

โœ… Bohemia Interactive, the makers of Ylands, only allows us to do these competitions with members of P1 right now so make sure to hop in the Discord

We will continue to ask for permission to do these with any/everyone, we know it comes off as self-seeking. I am putting in another request to allow anyone to join now.
