    Default Pagoda Dimension Contest : sponsored by Faeblight United : 4-8-18 to 7-8-18

    THE CHALLENGE:
    Construct a Pagoda in a dimension. Here is your chance to show how imaginative, technical and/or crazy you are!

    DEFINITION:
    A temple or sacred building, usually a pyramidlike tower and typically having upward-curving roofs over the individual stories. Pagodas come in many different sizes, as some may be small and others may be large. Pagodas traditionally have an odd number of levels, a notable exception being the eighteenth-century pagoda designed by Sir William Chambers at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, London. The pagodas in Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are very different from Chinese and Japanese pagodas. Pagodas in those countries are derived from Dravidian architecture.

    This contest is to encourage the design of a structure that would be classified as a Pagoda, but is not limited to any particular style.

    DATES:
    This contest begins Sunday, April 8th, 2018 and ends at 1200 (Noon) PDT on Sunday, July 8th, 2018, with the winners announced by Saturday, July 14th, 2018.
    Entries posted after the closing time and date will not be accepted.

    PRIZES (ONE PER CATEGORY!):
    1st Place Prize: 3 REX
    2nd Place Prize: 2 REX
    3rd Place Prize: 1 REX
    Each Judge Will Pick A Choice: 1 REX for each judges choice

    RULES:
    This contest is open to all shards - EU and NA.
    You can build in ANY dimension.

    -- READ THIS CAREFULLY --

    THE DIMENSION MUST HAVE A CLEAR PAGODA STRUCTURE.
    This contest is for new or existing builds.
    Dimensions must be closed to the public until Sunday, July 8th, 2018.
    Entries must be open for judging on Monday, July 9th, 2018, and remain open through the announcement of the winner. Any dimension not open by the closing date for entries will be disqualified from judging.
    Everything is permitted for building. Premade pieces, etc.

    ** NOTE: The Pagoda structure does NOT have to be accessible. You can make a structure that is amazing but nothing inside, that is fine, it would need to stand on its own merit.

    JUDGING CRITERIA:
    Technical Detail - proportions, accuracy, quality
    Imagination - morphing, originality, creative
    Aesthetics - flow, theme, appeal

    JUDGES:
    KelariCuddles
    Emmalythe
    Kuula
    Sparklynn

    SUBMISSIONS:
    All entries must be submitted on this forum.

    ENTRIES MUST INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:

    Hi Kuula,

    a question, also to bump this thread :-D
    Must the pagodas have an interior or can it be exterior only? (Also meaning: would it be of a disadvantage not to have an interior?)

    Cheers

    why would you list the judges? Are you looking for a judge? Some pagoda's are not tiered, in fact the definition is a sacred temple so does any temple count?

    For the record, these contests always used to list the judges... it's a way of giving the builder some comfort in knowing that they can trust that the judges are experienced, un-biased, and detail-oriented like you'd hope the person who is critiquing your work would be.

    In any event, this is a fun theme and I can't wait to see what people come up with. Wishing you lots of luck and lots of entries your contest, Kuula!

    Default Great idea

    What a beautiful idea !!

    My question is would you write any dimension that also applies to guild dimensions?
    That would be great for this topic.

    Best regards Chulia

    I'm impartial...it could be an amazing pagoda from the outside or detailed within. I don't have a parameter. Have fun and build away.

    Congratulations for the Kuula initiative, that will perhaps revive (I sincerely hope) the craze dimensions. Since the defections of DTC and Dimension Gallery, we feel a drop of interest on the forum (fortunately in the game, the activity of the dimensions did not decline him.
    For me, and what I saw on the internet, a pagoda is a temple on several levels of square, hexagonal or octagonal. Which can be wooden (rather Japan) or stone (rather China, Indonesia ...).
    Very interesting theme, I can not wait to see the entries. Congratulations again.

    Thank you for that. To be clear, the materials can be anything, but there must be a Pagoda structure.
