A few weeks ago, we made an announcement about the updates coming to MCC Island in Open Beta.
In that announcement, we let you all know that one of the games coming to Open Beta was Parkour Warrior and that you, our lovely MCC and MCCI Community, would eventually have the opportunity to help us develop and design courses for PKW as we opened up Community Submissions.
Well, the MCC Island Parkour Warrior Course Submission Form is now open!
This is your chance to show off your building and parkour skills and get your name proudly credited in-game on the island for helping us out!
Keep reading to find out all the rules and requirements for your Parkour Warrior courses and how to apply!

Instructions for installing World Edit with Forge/Fabric:
You can test if you have it installed correctly by typing "//wand" in the chat; you should get a Wooden Axe in your inventory.
Building your course
Now you're ready to build your course, so load up the template world from your single-player menu.
- The template world consists of an example of a finished course and an empty plot for your own course.
- The size of the course is limited by the Red Concrete box, and it should not be bigger than the box in any direction.
- A course should have a beginning, marked by the Gold Block, and an ending, marked by a Diamond Block.
- The Gold Block is already placed in the world, and it shouldn't be moved, centre the course from that block.
Markers in the template world:
- Gold Block: course start
- Diamond Block: course finish
- Redstone Blocks: schematic selection
- Copper Blocks: screenshot positions
Creating a schematic
Once you're happy with your course. you're now ready to make a schematic file.
- To create a schematic first, get the World Edit selection tool, which is a Wooden Axe, by typing //wand in the chat.
- Locate the two Redstone Blocks in the corners of the Red Concrete box.
- To make a World Edit selection, left-click on one of the Redstone Block markers and right-click the other Redstone Block marker.
- Clicking with the Wooden Axe should give you two messages in the chat: "First position set" and "Second position set".
- After you have your selection, fly to the top of the Gold Block and type "//copy" in the chat, after which you should get a message saying, "X blocks affected"
- Then type "//schematic save <schematic name>" in chat and press enter.
- Schematic name should be in the following format: your_minecraft_username-pkw-course (example: e_mouse-pkw-course)
- You should get a message saying "your_minecraft_username-pkw-course saved" in chat.
- The schematic file will be saved in your Minecraft folder in config/worldedit/schematics (C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\config\worldedit\schematics).
Here is a short video showing the steps:
Next up, you'll need to take five screenshots of the course using the predetermined positions marked with Copper Blocks.
- Locate the Copper Blocks in the template world.
- Each Copper Block has a sign on it displaying in what order to take the screenshots (from screenshots #1-5)
- Take a screenshot standing on the Copper Blocks facing the middle of the Red Concrete box using F2 (for Screenshot#5 you will be standing on a Barrier platform under the block)
- Screenshots will be saved in your Minecraft folder in /screenshots (C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\screenshots).
Here is a short video showing the steps:
Submitting your CourseSubmitting your courses to the MCC Island Team for review couldn't be simpler.
Make sure your courses meet all of these requirements, then fill in this form with all the requested files:
Accepted Courses will be incorporated into Parkour Warrior when the game is released during Open Beta!
If your course gets accepted you will be messaged on the forums, and if you don't get a message within 2 weeks of submission, you can presume it was declined.
One course per application. If you want to submit multiple courses, you'll need to fill out a separate form for each course you submit. Courses may be added or removed from MCC Island at any time without explanation.
- You'll be credited in-game for every course that gets accepted.
So get building! We look forward to trying out your creations and seeing them on the Island's sandy shores!
