    Default Contest: "Radical Botanical" Garden Competition

    To highlight the wonderful plants and trees we now have at our fingertips, I would like to invite you to create your own Radical Botanical Garden. Your botanical garden will be a public space that invites people to explore an expansive garden that may include walkways, seats, fountains, little archways…however you want to showcase your public garden. You can also think outside the box, such as a night time garden, a modern garden, in groups of plant types, a medieval garden, any type you like! It must be similar in concept to real life botanical gardens in that it is a public garden for exploration and enjoyment.

    The rules are:-

    • Single entrants only (no collaborations) & only one entry per player
    • Private dimensions only (no guild dimensions)
    • No item limit, any dimension may be used
    • The gardens must be botanical gardens similar in concept to those in real life, i.e. the
    type people can:- visit, walk around, sit, contemplate, find peace, take children, explore.
    • You can include features other than plants and trees such as ponds, bridges, pathways,
    water features, seats, animals such as birds, gazebos etc. that add to the gardens, just
    like you see in real life botanical gardens.
    • Any theme is acceptable; for example, an English botanical garden, a Japanese botanical
    garden, an alien botanical garden, a foggy garden, a snowy garden, even a futuristic
    fantasy botanical garden. Your imagination knows no bounds!
    • Use of tools for building is allowed however no sets or duplication of previous work
    please…all work should be new and original, not existing little gardens cut and paste
    please!
    • The dimension must be closed to everyone; public, guild, friends. You may invite a friend
    or two for advice however the dimension must be closed until the competition opens for
    judging.
    • Open to all shards NA & EU.

    Criteria for entries

    • Attention to detail, fit and finish

    • Lighting
    • Decoration details that complement the gardens

    Server time whatever server you are on, NA or EU - I won't make it too confusing least of all to me!! So if it is midnight on your server on that day, that's the time to stop building and open!

    What a perfect timing with this theme
    We have a ton of new and awesome looking rocks, plants and trees, just begging to be transformed into a garden.
    I already have so many new ideas

    Sounds like a perfect theme to me!
    Although at this point, I am only starting to play the expansion (=> don't have any of the new items yet) and have very little time on my hands to actually play (let alone build anything).

    So I'll wait a bit to decide if I should enter or not, either way - amazing idea, would loooove to enter, and good luck all!

    Question Q:

    If I have a 400 item dim that has been open but has room to grow. Can I close it. Up the item count and make it an entry with the original 400 items still in tact? With additoinal items, of course.

    I have an option if not. Also a dim that has previously been deco'd, opened, closed and mostly torn down to start over.

    New work only and dimensions that have never been seen please If it is a previously used dimension with existing votes, it will need to be reused with a new build.
