    With a recent server reset and lots of new builders since a year ago, I've decided to hold another building competition! This building competition is meant to commemorate all the amazing builders we currently have in Aurora and celebrate everyone’s skills in good fun.

    The winner of the competition will get a Steam Game of 10 USD or Less of their choice gifted to them!

    * This competition is no way official, and does not require a Builder rank to participate. If you want to participate in the competition, simply respond to this thread with a comment saying you want to participate before April 28th, 11:59 PM PDT.



    Rules for the Competition
    In this competition, competitors will be building an Easter-themed build on the Aurora Terraria Server. Competitors will have until May 14th, 11:59 PM PDT to finish and submit their builds.

    * Competitors will build it themselves without any help from other players or copying off the internet; breaking these rules will disqualify yourself with no exceptions.

    Finished builds will be sent to Bismuth or Thomas in a personal message, either via Forums or Discord. Competitors must additionally send the coordinates of their building on the server so we can confirm build history and that it’s on the server. Competitors will be able to submit one building only.



    After the Competition
    Once the competition ends, we will evaluate all builds we get. To determine which build is first place, we have a 40 point rubric that we'll use to grade each build. Just remember that art is subjective, and we might evaluate things a bit differently than how you think it should've gotten points.

    Theme ; 10 Points Available
    How faithful is the build to the theme? Could someone look at it and immediately think, “That’s an Easter build”?

    Detail ; 10 Points Available
    Is the build detailed, having variation in blocks and furniture? Are interesting things happening throughout the entire build? Are there empty or seemingly unfinished areas in the build?

    Beauty ; 10 Points Available
    Is the build easy on the eyes? Is the use of color and texture appealing to the eyes? Is it easy to understand what’s going on?

    Size ; 5 Points Available
    Preferably, a build should meet the standards of Builder applications size-wise. It should be at least half a screen wide and half a screen tall.

    Submission; 5 Points Available
    Submissions should be sent before the deadline and with the coordinates of where it is in the server. It should be done to Bismuth or Thomas in forum or discord personal messages.

    The person who gets the most points with their build will get a 10 USD Steam Game of their choice, gifted personally by me!



    Questions and Answers
    Q: What does “Unofficial” mean in the competition’s title? Can I use the build I submitted in the competition in future builder applications?
    A:
    Unofficial just means this isn’t being carried out by staff as a whole, but rather just me and Thomas. Therefore, this won’t affect any future builder applications if you do join the competition, and you will be able to use the build you submitted here on a future builder application.

    Q: I built a building on the server just a week or so ago that fits perfectly with the theme, can I submit it?
    A:
    It depends on the circumstance, but if the build works out with all the rules (No one helped you make it, on the server, lines up with the theme), then sure! Just tell me or Thomas when submitting the building so we know.

    Q: Can you be more specific on what constitutes as someone “helping” me on my build?
    A: They shouldn’t be building it alongside you. It’s okay to ask for a small tip, like what to do with a very specific place in the build, or needing someone to do something for you because you don’t have the permissions to do so. It’s a gray area, so if you want to play it safe ask first.

    Q: I don’t own Steam / I don’t think I can receive a gift from the USA / I don’t want a Steam gift, what will I get in return?
    A:
    Sorry. That means you probably won’t get a prize if you do get first place. On the bright side, you hopefully have a friend you’d want to gift a steam gift to; if you win, I’ll gladly gift it to them instead!

    Q: Should I do this? I’m on the fence.
    A:
    If you think you’re at least decent at building and you won’t be busy in the next two to three weeks, then yes! It’s a good way to put yourself out there if you’re not currently a Builder, and a fun way to compete with the other Builders if you are one yourself. The prize should just be a bonus for the fun of building something and seeing what everyone else came up with.



    If this seems interesting to you, just comment below saying you're in and you'll be in! No builder rank is required :)

    There is now just a week left until the deadline! Remember to submit your build to either me or Thomas by May 14th, 11:59 PM PDT.

    Also, as you all are probably aware, there was a server reset to counteract grief in the server. I'm willing to extend the deadline for up to 2-3 more days for anyone who was severely affected by the reset for their building. Please message me specifically for more information on this.
