Making a Mini-Game World

One of the most common ways of getting players to visit your world is by making a mini-game world. Mini-game worlds are exactly what they sound like: a world full of mini-games, usually short parkours.

Try to use good-looking blocks. Don't use materials like Dirt, as it makes the world look "nooby" and will repel players along with lowering the given rating. Even normal Wood Blocks are good, but the most common material used in these types of worlds are the colored blocks (Black Block, Red Block, Blue Block, etc.). Don't forget to add doors at the end of each mini-game with an ID you can remember.

Add items like Spikes, Lava, and other items that harm the player that are needed to be dodged in order to reach the end. A good idea is adding a type of Checkpoint at the start of each mini-game so players don't get annoyed by having to continuously respawn and go back to the mini-game they're playing.

Make sure the barrier isn't impossible to get through. Some common barriers include: A "water fall" where you have to fall down a large strip of water while dodging objects such as Spikes, Sharks, etc. A "dirt run", a long area made of dirt you have to run through before you reach the prize. This adds some resistance to having all the prizes taken by winners very quickly, allowing you to stock up easily. Try not to make it too long, otherwise players might get bored and leave. A "password door" area is another option. Don't make it an impossible answer; do something simple like 1-10, or ask easy questions like "What's the owner's name?". If you make up some crazy question like "1-500", it could be pretty easy to identify your world as a scam, even if the answer is something that is really between one and 500 because it takes a very long time to guess and players won't have fun typing in a ton of numbers over and over. This also applies to other impossible questions, such as "What is the owner's favorite animal?" with absolutely no hints whatsoever.

Link the door ID from the end of the prize barrier to a door that leads into a "hallway" where players can jump up and select their prize. Make the prizes worth what they spent their time on; don't have a bunch of cargo shorts in the prize area if you have a 10+-minute dirt run.

A broadcast can help. By the end of the day, you might have had a lot of players that enjoyed being in your world, and if they like it enough, they might give it a good rating, rising your placement on the "world leaderboards".

Hosting a Giveaway

Players love giveaways, especially when the items being given away are high in value. To host a giveaway, you don't even have to create a new world; you can host it in an already-existing world, such as your farm. Just make sure you block off anything you don't want other players getting into.

A good choice is World Locks. If you're going to do this, make sure you stock up on a lot of them, as people will be asking for more giveaways.

This is so players can't run and get the item before the giveaway begins. Make sure it's closed to the public.

If you're giving away multiple items, keep them in your inventory and host many "rounds" rather than giving everything away on one "round" all at once.

Super-broadcasts are better than normal broadcasts (a super-broadcast goes to everyone online, while a normal broadcast goes to 1,000 players). You can also use a custom broadcast, which allows you to choose how many players you'd like it to go to, but it can be quite expensive to do these kinds of broadcasts.

Keep it under 30 seconds; otherwise some people might think you're a scammer. Once you reach 0, unlock the door to the public. Once the item is obtained, use the /kickall slash command or separately kick the players until everyone is back at the White Door. If you have more items to give away, lock the door before you kick the players. After everyone is back at the starting point, repeat this step.

Making a Game World

A Game World is a world that uses a game generator. If you do well, Game Worlds can certainly scrape in a lot of players, and they might stick for quite a long time playing your game!

2
Create an area for each team. The minimum amount of teams you can have is two, while the maximum amount is four. Team areas are often defined by using color blocks that match the team color (e.g. Red Rabbits' bases are made of Red Blocks, Blue Bombers' bases are made of Blue Blocks, etc.)

Go into their settings (using your wrench) and change them so they are set up for their team base.

You might need friends to help test out your options if you have no experience with programming game generators. You can also check out Growtopia forums, wikis, or other sites that are related to Growtopia to figure out how to set up a game generator.

Making an Alternative Game World

Alternative games are worlds that have games in them that are too long to be considered a mini-game but don't use a game generator. The three most common games that belong in this category include: Fashion Show Spleef Dice Game

You can also put many games into one world.

For example, if you're making a Dice Game world, add the dice.

Once you have enough people, begin the game!

Once there is only one final player, give them the prize. You can also choose to host another game so players remain in your world. You might also want to add extra prizes. For example, instead of giving a prize to just the winner, you might want to give one to the first, second, and third place winners. You could even give everyone a prize, allowing top winners grand prizes and allowing those who didn't win a small, easy-to-obtain prize.
