Congratulations to the following winners:

    Hahaha. Well I'm shocked I won. I nailed the Dev team pretty hard over things and I though they hated me hehe. I just can't believe I won and I'm still spinning. Like I said to others now I'm just worried the Chesapeake community wont like my design. So went from one worry to another.

    I would post the picture but I don't know if that breaks the rules or not. Chrissay? Since I submitted it it said it becomes the property of EA/Mythic and I don't want to steal their thunder

    I can't wait to see everyone elses design!!!!



    (PS I know that was a joke Galen and I laughed pretty hard. That's what I was thinking haha.)

    Very nice job on this Gareth. I especially like the moongate at the bank. I suspect this will be like the Nujlem moongate though, out only.

    If the devs makes your lava forge work as a fully functional forge, that'd be awesome ;)

    I dunno maybe they should relocate the Britain Moongate to the bank? lol now wouldnt that be funny. It is a movable object isn't it? heh

    Thats why I put the small forge there just in case ;-)

    Congrats everyone! There were some really great designs submitted. One thing I noticed is Origin doesn't have a winner. Guess they didn't like what was entered?
     
  26. yeah but there is a forge outside too on the little strut over the moat :)

    linky to all my entries


    most likely they simply tired of seeing emails from me :D I did as told, and sent each in a separate mail... my designs are timid in comparison to some, and I can't wait to travel the shards and see them all in place

    congratulations to everyone that entered ~ participation shows passion for our lands

    this is the text that accompanied each..... there are very few on Legends that were not touched by our Lady Phoenix:

    All designs submitted by me are variations of the same basics... a lot more flowers, some signs of a thriving business inside the bank and a not too cluttered rooftop for those that like to recall onto the roof.

    One thing you will find in all designs is a small memorial park for our Lady Phoenix. It is sometimes directly in front of the bank, other times up the road towards Brit Castle in that wide grassy area. In the event that the statue cannot
    be dedicated to her memory, it should remain in the design since the friends of Legends will always know what and who it is for. I was unable to hue the statues, and would ask that they be done in the palest of marble.

    Altho stairs are included in every design I would also like the lantern in the southeast corner to function as the bartop bottles in the Skara Brae Community Center do - click the lantern and you are transported to the ground.

    I am a great fan of stacking, and if you look closely you'll see that many of the plants have been stacked. :)

    Kurgan's HouseBuilder program was used to create the banks, and I'm concerned about the tall dark ornamental trees you'll see in some of the designs. When they get to the small wall on the second level they disappear into the wall (dang) and I don't know if that's a restriction of the program used or if they will do such in-game. If so, perhaps some smaller trees might do well there.

    Thanks for looking!

    lol I wondered if somebody was going to point that out :D

    I seem to remember some obscure reference point a while ago (perhaps a developer quote) that suggested the use of free shards and related software is "okay" provided it's not used for making actual servers, but that was like 5 years ago, not sure what the policy is on it now.

    They said if they dont have a entry that can be used that the Dev team will make one. Perhaps no one sent one in for Origin or maybe they made a two story tall bank?
     
  45. I noticed that too. That should have been a *red alert* from the beginning.

    That already violates the terms of the contesnt.

    Dhara sent an entry and her pic is on the Origin board and in one of the bank threads here. No second story that I saw.

    I like how a contest that was suppose to be fun and community constructive has now turned into a blast one of the winners and ruin a thread where we can see other peoples designed. I am rather excited to see what the other shards will look like.

    I guess Galen the favoritism finger wasn't pointed the cheater one was. heh



     
  48. Nothing *too bad* with the design. I never entered the contest so it's not like I'm griefing that I *didn't* win. I just think it's a blatantly obvious violation of the contest that shouldn't have been over looked. I mean if I would have known that I could have gotten away with using Razor or RUO, hell I would have given it a shot.
     
  49. COCOPUFF641

    COCOPUFF641 Guest

    but the thing is i did not break the rules as uo was notified and also i emailed them what i used during the process so it was not considered cheated because it was all for the purpose of the bank and nothing else..

    Id like to know how the original accuser knows its R? I just figured
    it was KR since I don't use it. I guess it takes a Cheater to point a Cheater out.
    And if the team had a problem with it being used for the contest why would of he won.
