    [Event] Decoration Contest!



    Decoration Contest!
    Date: Friday, February 4th - Friday, February 11th
    Time (*CHANGED*!!): Judging will start at 6:30pm CST/7:30pm EST on Friday, February 11th


    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)

    2nd Place:
    Unique 2nd Place Forum Achievement
    In-game "Memorable Personality" Badge
    ("...has been recognized as having a memorable personality")

    3rd Place:
    Unique 3rd Place Forum Achievement
    In-game "Politician" Badge
    ("...has mastered the Politician Profession")


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


    Winners!

    Congratulations to the winners for the Nova Decoration Contest! If you want to see the winning entries, along with the other submissions, head on over to the waypoint listed above and see some pretty awesome entries! Thanks to everyone for coming out!


    1st Place: Poge



    2nd Place: Chalol

    (Chalol, we need to know your forum account name!)

    Hi, I was just at those coordinates. I do not see any guild hall yet. Was it supposed to start on February 4th? Or am I simply at the wrong spot?

    The event has already started! The judging will take place on the 11th, but you have until then to set up and decorate your houses.

    Make sure you're logging onto the Nova server and not Liberator. Also make sure you're on Dantooine. I just checked, and the guild hall is definitely there, along with one house already!

    Suggestion..
    Why not have categories?
    Best Small House
    Best Medium House
    Best Large House
    Best Guild Hall

    It's hard to compare a Guild hall which has more room for creativity to a small house... just my 2 cents.

    A good suggestion, though for simplicity's sake, I think it would be easier to have a simple 1st-3rd sort of category. Though, with larger structures, you have more rooms and area to decorate, so you have to sacrifice a bit of detail that could go into a smaller house with more intricate rooms. It's up to the player to decide if they want to go for the big or the small. Rest assured, we will be looking for ingenuity, and bigger houses will not have any sort of advantage.

    If all goes well with this competition, we'll keep that in mind if we do it again. Also, who knows; if we have a hundred entries or some staggering amount, we may have to rethink the prize criteria before the judging!

    Is there any possibility of a blue frog being spawn at that location? Or is there one there already?

    Afraid not, though remember that what you name your items takes a part in the overall impact. If you construct a fish tank and the base is a "Basic Chest", that isn't as good as a base that is named "Fish Tank". I would stock up on resources, master architect, and then build your own decorations. It'd save you trips and give you some flexibility with naming!
