Round 1 of the 2021 3D Printing Challenge will be scored for all teams over their first 50 hours of gameplay. Everything players do will be monitored and certain actions are worth more points than others. All scoring is detailed below.

Round 2 scoring details can be found here.

Core Gameplay

The points below outline the actions that will be evaluated during the BEST Robotics Polycraft 3D Printing Challenge. All actions have a maximum possible score beyond which repeated actions earn 0 points. While nearly all actions are repeatable, the core milestones will only earn in-game and score-wise rewards once. The actions taken by all players on the same team will be aggregated when scoring. Only the first fifty hours of gameplay and actions taken by players on a team will be summed when calculating your team's round score.

In addition to scores for reaching all milestones and taking various actions, the Maximum Size of your Village at each Technology Level will provide you with an uncapped Village Score determined by how many Polycraft World Refugees you settle and are Housing and how happy they are.

For example: If Team A had 10 players each play for exactly five hours, then all actions taken by all of those players will be summed and scored. At this point, Team A has played for a collective 50 hours. If Team A then had two players log in the next day and continue playing, since the fifty hour limit has already been reached, their actions will not be scored.

Core Points: Score Through the Ages

These scores are reported in game and updated continuously.

Score Through the Agess Formula Max Score
Peak Technology Level 1 Score Technology Level 1 x Level 1 Population Capacity x Level 1 Average Happiness x 100 Uncapped
Peak Technology Level 2 Score Technology Level 2 x Level 2 Population Capacity x Level 2 Average Happiness x 100 Uncapped
Peak Technology Level 3 Score Technology Level 3 x Level 3 Population Capacity x Level 3 Average Happiness x 100 Uncapped
Peak Technology Level 4 Score Technology Level 4 x Level 4 Population Capacity x Level 4 Average Happiness x 100 Uncapped

The combined peak scores from each Technology Level are summed up in the Score Through the Ages.
