Default [Contest][Week5] Company Town

Contest will be in the form of:
- You (who may be one person or a group of persons) will build a building within a town-type setting. Preferably furnished.
- Your building must be connected to the ground, have something approaching the appearance of obeying the laws of gravity (though this may not necessarily apply to buildings under the influence), and occupy a plot of land in the city.
- Your building may be in the style of your choosing.

Contest will be available from:
- Sunday, August the fifth (5th) of the year whichever it is now until Saturday (night) August the eleventh (11th).

Voting will be available from:
- Sometime thereafter to a later point thereafter.

Entries will be in the form of:
- One (1) building, in style of your choosing.
- One (1) post indicating participation, in style of your choosing (indicating a save slot of your choosing).

Prizes (min. 9 entrants) will be in the form of:
- One (1) of three (4) steam games each to the top participants based on votes.
- One (3) other thing(s) that may be inexplicably difficult to explain due to explicit expletives external to the explanation.


Buildings will be shown off in the form of:
- One (or more) video(s) to be composed at the end of the summer (please hit F3 to record while building if you can).
- Many (lots) of screenshots.
- Tours.
- Postcards.
- Woodblock etchings.
- Blown glass sculptures.

may I suggest a general theme?





We could try for a wild west or old west theme, all of this in flatland or some desert map (though a non flat map would be prettier)

by the way, what map are you thinking on?

Probably, if we have more than a few buildings at once.

The map is open to suggestion... Flatland would probably be a good choice for a western-themed town, but of course it is still flat as ever, so would need some decorating. It's no Deadwood, but it's better suited than most of the serverside terrains (Rasp and Sun Dried are the only desert terrains I can think of that might have enough flat space), and I don't suppose many people would download something new.

The server for the contest is up, [The-Construct.net] 00, and should be running on Flatland for the week. I've changed the sky to feel a little bit more western-y as well.

We'll probably try to keep the whole towns buildings loaded all the time, or at the very least mark down where buildings are so you don't build over somebody else...

I've started a livery near the gate to stable your wildcats, but other than that you can pick anywhere to build within the town. You don't have to be exactly in line with other buildings, but if you're building along the main thoroughfare you should try to build so that others can build fairly close to you (or smack up against your walls in some cases)

We have 8 or 9 buildings in the group project so far, still plenty of time for everybody to help out.
