      Basis -

      Dear StarMade Dock Community Members,

      I have come up with an idea to get creative juices flowing from everyone and to help inspire people to build creations which will vary from stations and ships to rooms and components. Each section of the competition will see a brief Storyline for you to read and will continue from the previous section. Hopefully with this you will be able to look at different sections of building that you might not have thought about before or may just be looking for to add a little extra touch to your creations.

      I will be checking this thread frequently and will accept any number of participants in each section. Each section will receive a specific set of rules and at the end of each section we will leave it up to competitors and viewers to vote on their favourite designs and creations.

      If you would like to participate at any point, please put a response to the thread along with images of your creations WITHIN spoiler tags, to avoid cluttering the thread with a large slowdown caused by rendering of these pictures. If you have not yet designed your creation and would still like to enter, respond to the post with a 'Reserved For Design' comment - this will be the comment you edit to later include your design/images.

      Without further ado, let us get this started!




      Section 1 - Introduction and Waking Up

      You are the head of the research and development team for your faction/company. You've recently acquired this position. It's been a long service that you've committed yourself to but has not been unnoticed. Your directors have seen the depths of your loyalty to the faction/company and know you to be a hard-working and dedicated individual. Finally you have been recognised and rewarded for this!

      As part of your role you now live on site at work and have been provided with your own room/suite. No more sharing bunks with others whilst you're at your faction/company home base! You are waking up from the previous day at work and open your eyes to see your new room/suite... but what does it look like?


      In this section of the story you are tasked with designing the room you live in at work. The rules will be as follows:

      1. Maximum size of 30 x 30 x 30 (length x width x height)
      2. Must contain a bed
      3. Must contain an on-suite bathroom/facilities

      Your main focus on this task is the interior and will not be judged on an exterior for the room. All images should be taken from an interior perspective. The room can be located on either a station or planet.


      This section of the competition will end on the 26/05/2019 - unless I have enough requests/participants who request a later date to have it turned in by. I look forward to seeing your creations!

      hmm seems like something interesting to mess with. :) I'll see if I can whip something up after I'm done fussing with a side project. :)

      Wonderful idea and a very well-written presentation!

      I would love to see this competition gaining attention and producing results.

      I will start building something for the "Section 1" challenge this week, after finishing with an update I'm working on now, and I'll edit this post to include the completed thing.

      Thanks for posting this competition. It's always nice to take up creative challenges that define constraints to what you create, while also giving an elevated sense of purpose to the process of design and its product. I love the story-based idea in general and also the specific introduction part of the story you came up with (y)

      It will be fun to design that suite, and the community does indeed need some revivifying inspiration.

      100% certain mine will be the worst, but at least it's something that suits my normal building, size-wise.

      It's disappointing to see that this imaginative competition didn't gain much attention, and that none of us have managed to post/build anything before the end date.

      My excuse is that my week turned particularly busy last week, while on this week, I just procrastinated the starting of this challenge right until yesterday, due to a particularly enthusiastic and obsession-inducing station modernization project.

      But I have good plans and would really-really want to see this competition to come to fruition :)


      So I guess we could extend this with another week, right? - AngelusKutonaAngelusKutona

      Because of the lack of response from all parts (myself included as I had been working on an entry but work became a more primary focus) the end date of this section of the competition will be extended a further two weeks - ending on the 26/05/2019.

      Is this reasonable for us all?

      Sounds good, even better than a single bonus week, best to be sure.

      And I'm going to link this thread in a status message I'm going to post right after this (so that it remains on SMD's front page until five other forumers updated their statuses).

      Also, blame the current development stage / activity level for the lack of attention and participation, not the competition itself.

      It's really a fun idea already, and I can see very promising possible directions it may evolve in.

      Remove the spaces, Imgur and forums don't seem to mix too well for some odd reason.

      Honestly I usually get outdone by several faction members and so far was learning (AKA Stealing small bits) from them. XD Forgot to add a factory section but with the shop right next to the shipyard computer I don't think it needs one. The funny thing is I managed to cram a shipyard into that 30^3 space but didn't take any pictures of it. XD
