    This thread is the official place to sign-up for contestants in the Luna House Design Contest 2015.

    (Only houses within Luna City Walls are qualified to enter!)


    Deadline to sign-up is March 28th.

    *SIGN UP IN THIS THREAD!!!*

    You must sign-up for the contest to count as a contestant! As of right now, the reward of 50 million gold pieces, and other prizes and items, will be divvied out to *ALL* participating contestants. The First Prize will get a significantly larger portion, say 30-40%. While Last Prize will get a small portion, say 5-10%. So everybody will earn a prize, as long as a few house design rules are followed.


    Disqualification:

    There are very few design rules for the contest. Houses will be encouraged to have tan-colored walls and red roofs, so that Luna City has a design theme. The template is easy to see in a few houses (including mine) already placed in Luna. However you do *NOT* need to follow the Luna template. In which case, if you are very adept at designing houses, can design whatever you want. The design template is encouraged to allow mediocre or bad house designers, still participate in the contest and win a prize.

    Disqualification will occur if you do not sign-up by the sign-up date, if you do not design your house by the design date, and if you create some atrocious (really bad) house design, or if you own a "BOX HOUSE", a house with 4 walls, 4 stories, and a roof. Those houses will receive no prizes at all. Those are the houses I'm hoping will change, through the contest.


    House Design Deadline is May 4th.

    The design due date will be May 4th, "May the 4th Be With You!" Everybody will need to submit their final house design by then. During which, I will take screenshots of designated contestant plots, and then they will go to judgment. The judgment process is not yet finalized. And it is subject to change.

    As of right now, I (Apollyon) am the only judge and final judge in the contest. My alt characters and plots will not win rewards in the contest. I have no friends nor allies in the contest. So none of the reward prize will go back to me. All of it will go to contestants.


    A final message:

    Sign-up in this thread, and if you like, post a screenshot of your plot location, for the contest. This will be used in the final judgment.

    You will need to obtain a plot within the Luna city walls, to make it official.

    What will be the next steps? - Shall we lead you around on the 4th? Or will you check the spots alone?

    YES, on May 4th I will walk around Luna and take screenshots of the entree's houses.

    The judging will occur within 1-2 weeks thereafter. First place will get the largest prize. Last place will get the smallest prize.

    Got the house design ready and made it public. It's only the design that counts, not the deco, right?

    Hi ApollyonSP,

    is this the winning order? - Or just an info about contestants?

    A little info about "my design"
    I know you might just look on house building style. But for me a design is much more then just a roof and some walls below. - The house needs to tell a story. :)
    So to explain in short my design: I tried to be as much conform with the Luna Bank Style as possible. - Unfortunatelly i could not find all of that nice deco which is in Luna bank.
    But at least i created the floors same style like in bank, even with the stairs going up there, pillars, etc. Ground floor worker aera and private bank. First floor sleeping rooms. Upstairs i put something that was missing in my openion in luna. A nice restaurant/inn for relaxing. :)

    I hope Avariel will tell us a bit about her houses too. - I like the style she build them up.

    G'morning :heart:

    I see that you only took outside pics. The magic academy house contestant 2 will probably need some explaining... Well story behind it is... I wanted to have a school of magic house, with matching vendor. Each section is for a different magic discipline, looks sorta patchwork if you didn't understand I think. o_O So ground Floor is for Necromancy with Alchemy and Poisoning :stir: and the other side is for Magery and Scribe. Second Floor is Arcanist, white and purdy and other side Mystic so nature..:grin: Tippity Top is for Imbueing which is sorta in the schools, pretty ice blue melting from all the heat the forge makes LOL. :flame:I dressed my Vendors as mages from those schools and will try fill them up with those things from there disciplines as I go. It was an added bonus to learn how Siege buys from the wall side so I placed my plot so it could be seen from behind the walls... *happy dance* :danceb:

    Morning again :heart:

    Tink's Treehouse... I love the Fey. It was fun. I love pretty things. Inside of the treehouse is pretty small, but cozy. Fey don't need alot of room :grouphug:
    I made the Fey vendor bags resemble nature. Items are hanging off the trees inside. In 2d. :tongue: Wish I could have wings and the sound they make when you click on the vendors.

    The pictures are not in order of who won the contest, yet.

    However Troop's house design will be disqualified on account of it being a "BOX HOUSE" with 4 walls, no dimension, and no roofing.

    Troop will be given one more week to complete his design, otherwise he may receive only 1 million gold, on behalf of his house having the sandstone tan colored wall to match the luna theme.

    I certainly won't hold my breath. Seems odd though. For someone to blaze in buy (what had to have been an expensive plot) a Luna spot and then start a house contest. Then *poof*.

    Hope he is ok :)

    how can any of you even begin to speak negatively about this player without knowing his situation?....maybe someone died in his family or maybe some has cancer or any other of numerous possibilities that take precedence over explaining himself to you people about his absence or dishing out some pixel rewards......

    I second that Ol MacDeezy. - HavenĀ“t seen him in game for a long time, nor did he logged in his stratic account since 13. of May.
    There can be always a reason, why one will not have the time to come back to uo.
    And remember RL comes first!

    Anyone can speculate. Aren't you in fact speculating that perhaps he was sick, or had a death or emergency in the family? :danceb:
