How to set up 4 player splitscreen:
FYI - you will need an HDMI cable (and HD capable TV or projector) and 8 batteries to be able to use the kit.

Please be flexible, the kit has to come back to RCLS and then sent back out to the next library. While I tried to give enough time in between libraries, there are all kinds of anomolies in the delivery (thanks to those guys btw).
You have up to 2 weeks to have the kids collaborate and build a replica of your library in-game. Focus on the outside first and then the inside if you have time. 20 hours max should be the limit. There is no limit to the number of kids involved, or their ages.
Tell the kids to build their library near the spawn point so I can find it.
If using the kit, name the library the same as yours and save it to the hard drive.
If building your library online, make a movie of a tour of your library - use a tablet or camera - and upload it to YouTube. Let me know if you need help or a YouTube login - So it would look something like the video above.
Even better, if all of you could create the movie and embed it into this guide (I have made ya'all collaborators), that would be helpful. It would also be a good way to teach the kids video editing and creation skills.
Voters will be all participating librarians, Randy and I. We will do it via the Vote tab on this guide.
