Mini Build Contest #1

Postby Wolfy » Sun Mar 31, 2013 8:30 pm

I'm going to host some Mini Build contests!
I like contests, and I like encouraging creativity and friendly competition. This contest is going to be on a much, much smaller scale than the official build contests. Everyone is free to enter.

Edit to add: Forgot to mention, you only need to post a screen shot, not your save file. (Though if there was some kind of dispute about mods, it could be settled by turning the save file over to a moderator.)

RULES FOR ALL MINI BUILDS (May change in the future, this is kind of a trial.)
1. Your build must fit the theme, obviously.
2. Only 1 entry per person.
3. If the contest specifies "vanilla", then you can't use any mods.
4. You will have 30 days to submit your entry.
5. Winner will be decided by poll. Poll will run for 30 days.
6. No chatting on the submission thread.
7. No arguing, trolling, insulting others, or anything else that violates forum rules, naturally.
8. Winner will get to CHOOSE between EITHER picking the theme for the next contest, OR having me create a custom decorative item for their game. If you choose the custom item option, I will pick the next theme. If you choose the option to pick the next theme, you will not be allowed to enter the next contest.

RULES FOR MINI BUILD CONTEST #1
1. The theme is "SPRING FLOWERS". (Open to interpretation, so be creative!)
2. You must use a minimum of 3 different colors.
3. Mods are welcome, but you must link to the mods beneath the picture of your entry.
4. Chat here: http://www.townsgame.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=9517
5. Submit entries between April 1st and 30th. Voting will be between May 1st and 30th.

I decided I'd go ahead and enter this first one, to provide an example. ^^

When spring rolls around, I always think of the windmills and tulip fields of the Netherlands (even though I've never been there), so that's the inspiration behind my entry. :3

Very nice! Wish I could get my animated windmill blades working in game, they would fit that perfectly!

I made a chicken and an egg fountain this weekend! I thought I would enter it here because it's kind of springy. Sorry I can't attach images here yet.

Water off :

Water being turned on:

Water running off of egg statue:

Requires proper drainage to ensure it doesn't overflow:

Looks neat i guess

Thanks for looking.

All you have to do its put the link to the images in image tags...
Code: Select all
[img]url goes here[/img]

There's no uploading to the forum, so there's nothing extra you need to do to make images display the way I did.

Made in my town Reville. Should be a nice easter egg to find when the town is buried. :D No mods were used. Check it out yourself!

The contest is now closed, so if a mod would like to lock the thread, I'll put the poll on the discussion thread?
