    THE CHALLENGE:
    Here is your chance to show how imaginative, technical or crazy you are!
    Construct a tree house in a dimension. In this contest we are allowing guild dimensions as well as personal dimensions. The guild dimensions will be evaluated as their own category.

    RULES:
    This contest is open to all shards, EU and NA.
    Guild dimensions accepted! (representative name must be posted for guild dim entry)
    This contest is for new or existing builds.
    Team builds are acceptable. (name must be posted if different than owner)
    Everything is permitted for building.

    -- READ THIS CAREFULLY --
    THE STRUCTURE MUST BE ABOVE GROUND AND SUPPORTED BY A TREE, ELEVATED WITH SUPPORTS OR STILTS, AND BE WITHIN TREES. NOT FREESTANDING, FLOATING, ETC.


    JUDGING CRITERIA:
    Creativity: Use of materials (imagination, high degree of morphing, innovative)

    Technical: Quality of construction (technicality, proportion, specification)
    Unless intentional- gaps, flicker and mismatches should be avoided.

    Proportions: This includes ceiling height, furnishings, and any miscellaneous details you choose to add. Things should be built in relative proportion with each other.

    Originality: Were atypical materials used in the construction of roof/walls/doors/windows? Was the design of the structure unique in overall appearance?

    All entries must be submitted no later than 1200 (Noon) PDT on Sunday, June 18th 2017. Entries submitted after 1200 (Noon) PDT on Sunday, June 18th 2017 will not be considered or accepted.

    Default Fun!

    After contemplating a bit on which contest I should enter this or Coldsprites pet theme, I have to say that this is more up my alley. I really am not much of a character morpher and I think I would have fun trying this one.

    Thanks Kuula for the contest, Ill be back with more details!

    That is a shame, I really liked this theme and was looking forward to seeing some very imaginative tree houses.

    Default Here we go again...

    Sorry folks for the contest changes. We had 3 contests going, and I really think everyone deserved to participate in them all. I decided to push mine way out into June, which means we should really have an exciting contest and give everyone a shot.

    I wanted to enhance a few things which we normally don't see, so I opened it up for guild dimensions too. We may see something very cool, I hope.

    Have fun!

    Yay!
    Have I ever mentioned that I love treehouses? (only about 20 times probably...)

    Speaking of guild dimensions, our dim had a treehouse (not built by me) that got totally wrecked when someone thought he has to do the dim achievement by picking up random parts and dumping them somewhere. One day I'll do a version 2.0 of it, but not for this contest.

    I already have something else in mind, after several scrapped concepts it got put on hold until we finally get that minion loot revamp. From my understanding it'll meet the criteria, so I hope I can pull it off

    Never be afraid to put your contest up when you want to not everyone will participate in certain themes or requirements regardless of whether there was another choice or not. Appealing to different tastes is a positive thing - also very thoughtful of you to reconsider, its your time, resources and thoughtfulness that truly matter.

    Kudos to everyone who provide contests to the community.

    Hey...I don't care if it's alien, if it's supported by a tree in some fashion, technically it counts.

    Wait till you see mine.

    you sir have just peaked my interest.

    Just took 20 minutes to make the foundation of an Alien tree/tree house. Quite happy with it(Eat your heart out Avatar!).

    Character Name: Korvac
    Shard:Laethys
    Dimension Name:Hyperion

    Note: Since I rarely have the time to dim much lately, when I do, I over-dim. So this will be a whole created Alien world, with the Treehouse as the focal point.
