November Build Competition with the WA Maritime Museum!

We’ve just announced the October Halloween competition, but we want to get everyone excited for what is coming next.

In November we’re teaming up with the WA Maritime Museum again! They’ve given us a specific challenge – build an entry statement to the Fremantle Harbour. Just like the Statue of Liberty is the entry statement to New York, we want to see what you can come up with for Freo! What should be there to welcome people to Fremantle?

The WA Maritime Museum are celebrating a new exhibition about Fremantle called Fremantle Then & Now: Historical Panoramas.

We’ve got some 50×50 water plots ready to go! Also, the winning builds will be put on show on a big screen in the WA Maritime Museum during the January Holidays.

Note: In order to be eligible for the prizes provided by WAMM, you’ll need to register at this link as well!

Rules

  • All building is in Creative Mode
  • Builders must use ONE plot only
  • All building must be done on the November Comp Map
  • Designs must be your own
  • Single player entries only – no team builds

Judging will happen during the first week of December. The WA Maritime Museum staff will be judging the entries as well, with each WAMM vote counting for two moderator votes.

As per normal, the November Comp world gate will replace the October gate which will close to building at 9pm on Monday October 31st.

The gate will open on the morning of November 1st!

Prizes

The top three designs will win an extra special prize, just for November, thanks to the WA Maritime Museum. Regular Emerald Points prizes will be given out as usual.

1st Place: DJI Ryze Tello Toy Drone
2nd Place: Olympus 8×21 RC II Waterproof Blue Binocular
3rd Place: 25x Brass Monocular Spyglass

These are some amazing prizes, so we’re looking forward to seeing the builds. In the mean time, get ready for October and Halloween!

September Creative Competition – Colour

It’s September! Time for a new month of competition and a new theme! At the end of this round there’ll be some mid-season prizes to give away too. Got to be in it to win it! This month the theme is Colour.

Each build is limited to two colours – a primary one and a secondary one. That’s it. Gradients are allowed, but they need to be as subtle as possible. It needs to be clearly the same base colour, and as limited use as you can. This may test people!

The September Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the August gate which will close to building at 9pm on Wednesday August 31st.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of September 1st, so get planning! Just as a reminder, here are the major prizes for this season!

August Creative Competition – Glass Required & Season 2 2022 Prizes!

Each year in August we celebrate National Science Week – it means some exciting competitions with a bit of a science-y twist. We’ve had Underwater Bases in 2020, Farms in 2021, and this year we’re doing Glass Required, to celebrate NSW’s schools theme in 2022 of Glass: More than meets the eye.

So what does Glass Required mean exactly? We want to see you create something that requires glass to function. Think outside the box though – we don’t want to see things like houses because of windows. Get creative!

The August Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the July gate which will close to building at 9pm on Sunday July 31st.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of August 1st, so get thinking!

July Creative Competition – Ultimate Biomes

July means the start of a new season of competition! The leaderboard has been wiped clean. Prizes for the new season will be announced during July when we’ve finalised them, but they’re pretty good…

On to July’s theme! We’re going with Ultimate Biomes. We all know the biomes we have, but how would you improve them? New features or structures? New plants or animals? Let us know!

The July Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the June gate which will close to building at 9pm on Thursday June 30th.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of July 1st, so get planning!

June Creative Competition – Free Build

To finish off Season 1, 2022, we’re going with a popular option – just like this post has no images, the competition this month has no theme! You can build what you want (as long as it fits with the LC rules).

The June Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the May gate which will close to building at 9pm on Tuesday May 31st.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of June 1st, so get thinking about what you want to build!

May Creative Competition – Treehouse

May’s Creative Competition theme is going back into the archives, revisiting a popular one – Treehouse!

This was also one of our first competitions, back in May 2020!

The May Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the April gate which will close to building at 9pm on Saturday April 30th.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of May 1st, so get planning and designing!

April Creative Competition – Time Travel

April’s Creative Competition theme is Time Travel…

Now while the example build (seen above) is from Back to the Future, this isn’t a Time Travel Movie theme, we’re talking real world times! Prehistoric, Medieval, 60s, Industrial, even Futuristic! Get creative – the plots are also bigger – 50×50 instead of 40×40, so there’s more room to build!

The April Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the March gate which will close to building at 9pm on Thursday March 31st.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of April 1st (we’re not joking), so get planning and designing now! We’re looking forward to travelling through time…

March Creative Competition – Modern Home

On to March! The next competition’s theme is Modern Home!

Time to get stuck into the concrete and modern architecture!

The March Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the February gate which will close to building at 9pm on Monday February 28th.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of March 1st, so get planning and designing now – you’ve got a month!

February Creative Competition – Pixel Art

Time to try something a little different – in February we want to see your best Pixel Art!

The rules are in the image above, but you’ll still need this info!

It’s not just about the pixel art – we want to see how you frame it, and what’s around the art itself to complement the build. The build will be judged as a whole, but the pixel art should be the main focal point.

The February Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the January gate which will close to building at 9pm on Monday January 31st.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of February 1st, so get planning and designing now – you’ll only have a month to build.
