March Build Competition - 'Cave'

We're asking players to be specific with their entries this time, with Cave as our theme, but there's a backstory: Due to overpopulation and pollution, the overworld has been rendered uninhabitable - nuclear fallout has destroyed surface water and anything alive. Everyone is now forced to live underground in caves. Just like we did back in August with Underwater Bases, there are things you MUST include in your build.

These are:

·        an air filtration system
·        a water filtration system
·        farms and livestock (not too many)
·        living quarters
·        cave security
·        work / school / leisure spaces

Have a think about what you'd want in a cave home. Remember, you can't go to the surface.

Rules:

·        All building must be in Creative Mode
·        This is a Single Player Competition – Team builds are not allowed
