X4 Station Design Contest (Voting Phase)

Post by Ketraar » Fri, 13. Aug 21, 12:58

Intro
With the improvements made to the Station Editor in the 4.10 update, allowing more freedom to place station modules, we have decided to resurrect an old X Forum tradition and hold a friendly competition. Station-building aficionados among you can yield to their creativity, and share their station designs with the rest of the X Community. While Profitsss are important, we have bribed the Teladi to look the other way, and allow stations to be built with aesthetics as the primary focus.

You can, for example, use the Station Design Simulator to design your creation, then use the Custom Game Start to place it in the game and take pictures, which you can then share here. We hope everyone has lots of fun and inspiration while creating their stations designs.

Rules
  • Only Designs posted as a reply to this thread are eligible.
  • You can submit multiple designs, but only one per reply.
  • Station Designs may only use one Plot.
  • No limit on number of modules that can be used.
  • Both video and image submissions are accepted.
  • Designers that progress to the final will be asked to submit their corresponding construction plans (so make sure you save yours!).

Process
In the first phase, players will submit their Stations, either through video or image posted as a reply to this topic. Once phase 1 is over, we will chose 5 finalists and create a Poll, including a showcase with all the designs, on which the X Community then can vote. All finalists will get a participation prize. For more info see the Prizes section below.

Note: Winners may be asked to provide basic personal information in order for the prizes to be delivered. Winners will be contacted via the email used to register on this forum.
