Figure 1: A scenic nighttime image of an under-developed Island Logistics Nexus from the arrival dock in the harbor of Polycraft Island Cove. A welcome chest awaits for daring, brave Hunters. A small greenhouse to the left helps with early food and for your first Polycraft Dirt Warehouses. Your Distribution Plot is straight ahead and a bit to the left.

Welcome to your new home.

After you link your BEST Robotics Account and type "/teamspace", you will be transported to your team's own Island deep in the oceans of the Polycraft World Kingdom. Your team will manage a Distribution Complex as a new central location for shipping products around the world. You must balance several competing tasks on your new island: survive, don't starve, gather materials, explore your island and solve puzzles to win rewards. Your main goal is to engineer the infrastructure of a Distribution Complex to provide for the necessities of other locations in Polycraft World. Delivery bots will receive payment for the deliveries in the from of raw materials that will be deposited nightly in the Supply Chest.

Polycraft Island holds many secrets. From vast cave systems to raging waterfalls, beautiful beaches, dense jungles and a protected cove proving a watery entry point to access your island's Distribution Plot, the area where your growing Distribution Complex expands its Robot Population Capacity. To succeed and win the 2023 BEST Robotics - Global Logistics Challenge, your team will have to be daring, be brave, be resilient and be specialized. The best strategies are likely going to require advancing in many areas simultaneously: increasing the number of delivery bots, but not so fast that you ignore your robot's Efficiency. Solving challenges in the puzzle-rich scavenger hunt, but not spending so much time there that you can't get your Distribution Complex off the ground.

Explore. Create. Have Fun. An island adventure awaits. Go Hunt, or go Build. Good luck.
