HOW TO JOIN THE GAME

1. To play the game you will need to register for a ticket on our private server. Registrations will be advertised ahead of each iteration through Eventbrite.

2. Once you are registered, we will contact you asking for your email address and gamertag (from Xbox).

3. You will then receive an invite to our private Discord channel and from there you can enter PLATFORM.

COSTUMES/ SKINS

In game attendees can customise their characters in the world. The easiest way to do this is through the Minecraft Marketplace. There are a number of ‘skin’ packs available in the marketplace, including free skins.

PARENTAL GUIDANCE (ONLINE SAFETY)

There are a number of online guides for parents which provide guidance on how to keep your children safe online.

These include:

esafety.gov.au/parents - The Australian government website on general online safety

education.vic.gov.au/about/programs/bullystoppers/Pages/advicecybersafe.aspx - The Victorian government advice on cyber safety

windowscentral.com/minecraft-guide-how-keep-your-children-safe-online-parental-settings - A guide for parents, specific to Minecraft

DISCORD

The SUBSTATION Discord channel is where you can ask questions and enter the private server that hosts PLATFORM. This channel is moderated by The SUBSTATION staff and anyone behaving in an unfriendly or unsafe manner will be deleted and booted out of the game. However, we cannot stop members from starting their own Discord channel and inviting members of our channel to theirs. We strongly encourage you to only sign up to our Discord channel for PLATFORM.

MODERATION OF THE GAME AND CHAT

In moderating the private server which runs PLATFORM, we can see all in game chat from general announcements to person to person chat. If we notice anything unfriendly or unsafe we can boot players from the game and ban them from entering the server.

Like all events at The SUBSTATION, we encourage our audience to have an open mind, to explore and have fun. We prioritise the safety and wellbeing of our audience and will not tolerate any behaviour which threatens or intimidates anyone else.
