In Polycraft World, minigames are short events provided to the players. These events exist to provide a unique gameplay experience for players while also providing fun rewards to help them progress further in the game.

Gameplay data will be used to help research artificial intelligence as long as players consent. You are welcome to opt out of this research by not participating in research based minigames. The only information collected is the behavioral data of a player, such as the methodology of completion, and the player's minecraft username.

We do not collecting IP addresses, or any other information shared to us through the minecraft client. We will also have regular minigame rooms where your behavioral information will not be gathered.


Queue Page for the Capture the Base

Upon entering the Minigame world, players will be transported to the scale model of the UTD Trellis. To enter into the queue for a minigame, you can press the "X" key. Currently, there is no way to unmap/remap this key ingame.

You'll be asked for your consent to research how you play in the minigame. You'll be assigned a team if necessary and the game will start. You'll be placed in a queue while players join, and once there are enough players, the minigame will start!

From here, you can navigate these menus with your mouse to choose which minigame you want to participate. You can also see player counts for each queue.
