Construction Contest 2017!

I challenge all of you to a construction contest, starting today, and ending on December 31st, 2017.
That gives you just about 2 months, so get building!

Rules for the build:

1. No in-game editor.
All creations must be made with serverside tools, not clientside editing tools. A noob should have the potential (with enough skill) to be on equal building footing as a veteran.

2. All construction creations must be made on one of the servers currently online, and must be able to be displayed by the creator to a judge if unauthorized editing/cheating is suspected.

3. Any further suggested rules will be considered upon request.

All artists/builders must post pictures of their creations on this thread by December 31st 2017, at 11:59pm.

All creations will be judged based on the following criteria:


Good luck and God speed.


  • Oh also, every creation must be brand new, built from today until the end of the contest. No reusing of old creations.

    Also, you can submit more than one creation, but again, they must have been built in their entirety sometime between now and the end of December.
  • Wooo yes!
  • Okay and to incentivize this a little bit more there will be a rewards if 5 or more people join the construction contest.

    1st place will receive a $50 steam digital wallet code.
    2nd place will receive a $20 steam digital wallet code.
    3rd place will receive a digital high five from yours truly.

  • This is so awesome. I'll have time around December.
  • For anyone up for it, we might get a few people together on the server this weekend. No telling if much building will get done, but the word will go out on discord and possibly the steam group when it happens, so should pick up enough to be fun either way.
  • Well, I just now saw this. If there is a future competition we should put it on the steam group, the discord, and whatever else we have. I only log in here every few months or so.

    I have a lot of contacts I can spread the word to if I know about it in time.
