    [Event] Decoration Contest! (Round Two!)



    Decoration Contest!
    Date: Sunday, October 9th - Sunday, October 16th
    Location: Dantooine, 4276, -2708
    Time: Judging will start at 6:30pm CST/7:30pm EST on Sunday, October 16th


    Come join the Event Coordinator and Quality Assurance teams as we host the second Nova Decoration Contest! Here are the details you need to know!

    (Note: When creating a character on Nova, be sure to start in Coronet, Corellia. There have been issues with other zones not working properly)

    [IMPORTANT! Do NOT log out your character inside any building. Log outside. There have been issues with characters becoming bugged on Nova. ALWAYS add a second character to your house admin list, just incase]

    Who here has the most awesome looking house? Have you ever spent painstaking hours adjusting, rotating, and pushing things into place? Do you have the best-decorated building in all of Nova?!

    Then this event is just for you! Join the SWGEmu EC team as we scour the galaxy for the best-decorated house. This event will take place on the Nova server, and we're going to get all you would-be home decorators a few days to get prepared. Here's how it's going to work: we have chosen a flat open surface on Dantooine for you all to build at. The waypoint is 4276, -2708. On the tournament day, we will look at all the houses at and around that area, so make sure you place your house as close to the waypoint as possible. At the center is a guild hall that has already been placed. Lay down your houses as close to it and make things nice and squished so we've got plenty of room! We will have a bit of a party as we tour each and every house, until we finally reach them all, head back to the guild hall, make a decision, and crown the winner!

    As for submission guidelines, all house styles are accepted, though be warned! We are looking for small details, ingenuity in crafting/naming/arranging, and overall impressiveness. Empty rooms will count against you, so don't place a huge guild hall unless you can decorate it to its fullest. Small houses with intricate rooms may be the better for the contest. When naming your houses, put both your Nova and Liberator character names in the description field. (e.g. "Nova: Kreen Liberator: Ariana"). Feel free to go color crazy, but if we can't figure out your Nova/Liberator names from the title, we may not be able to give you a prize.

    Now you may be thinking, oh big deal, an icky house contest on Nova, who cares? Well, this is where you'd be wrong, cause the contest is not just on Nova. While the server is the medium, Liberator will be where the prizes are handed out! Here are the goodies you could win!


    1st Place:
    Unique 1st Place Forum Achievement
    In-game "Interior Designer Winner" Badge
    ("...winner of the Galactic Home Show and recognized as being an exceptional interior designer")
    In-game Cosmetic Alteration! (This will allow you to be a different NPC or creature of your choice until the server resets)
    Nova Bonus: Any 3 items of your choosing (will last until next server wipe)

    2nd Place:
    Unique 2nd Place Forum Achievement
    In-game "Memorable Personality" Badge
    ("...has been recognized as having a memorable personality")
    Nova Bonus: Any 1 item of your choosing and an AV-21 Speeder (will last until next server wipe)

    3rd Place:
    Unique 3rd Place Forum Achievement
    In-game "Politician" Badge
    ("...has mastered the Politician Profession")
    Nova Bonus: AV-21 Speeder (will last until next server wipe)


    So come on down, and get your design gears moving!


    Winners!



    1st Place: Kaisuke / Belzac
    [Received: Mandalorian Helmet, Jetpack, Lightsaber]


    2nd Place: Savage / Lightem
    [Received: Lightsaber, AV-21]


    3rd Place: Arita / Hallya
    [Received: AV-21]

    The QA and EC teams have been speaking with the developers, and after working out some bug issues this weekend, and focusing on other aspects that won't involve wiping, we're hoping the next week for the event will not experience any wipes! Though I should let Aceblade speak more on the issue, as he's the one corresponding with the developers =)

    We're going to hold off on this for now. With the rapid pace of development we can't be guaranteed a stable / no wipe environment. Sorry guys! We'll re-group in the near future for this.

    On a cool note.. part of JTL is in. Nova is now host to atmospheric flight. It's in as "just for fun" right now but who knows what will come down the road ;-)

    I'm going to temporarily close the thread, and reopen it hopefully in a few days to a week when we can get a more stable time frame to have a decoration contest! In the meantime, start thinking of some ideas for how you want to decorate your house!

    Ok guys, the time to start decorating is now! We've talked with the Nova developers, and they've agreed to hold off on wiping the server this week for the decoration contest. The original post has been edited with the correct and updated times/dates. The decoration event starts now and will end next Sunday!

    [IMPORTANT! Do NOT log out your character inside any building. Log outside. There have been issues with characters becoming bugged on Nova. ALWAYS add a second character to your house admin list, just incase]


    We look forward to seeing all the houses!!

    For those entering the contest. The /move up function works a bit different then we are used to, correct command will be /move [Item name] up {value}.
