Title: Forum Challenge #7: You Look Marvelous! NEW END DATE (December 31st)
Post by: solarscreen on September 03, 2014, 10:21:22 AM
How beautiful!
Simply stunning!
How is this possible?
I cried when I saw this!

Can you elicit responses like these?

Let's see who can create the best overall looking village. Any map, any setting.

Two categories:

PURIST:  No mods were used in the creation of this village
UNLIMITED:  Any and all mods may be used

Two rookie challengers will also be selected so EVERYONE can play!
Due date for your entry is end of the day December 31st.  Post your screencaps and descriptions at that time.

DO NOT post your progress!  We want to be surprised, so no screencaps until the last day.
Appropriate teasers, taunts, and challenges will be allowed!  :)

Let's PLAY!

Is anybody participating in this challenge? Just curious, because no posts. I have to keep restarting a new village because @RedKetchup can't stop creating new and better toys.

I think mods have thrown all the challenges to the curb for now.  They have opened up a large avenue for creativity that was not there before.

I may have to pull them back and see if and when we want to play any challenges in the future.

I started out a settlement for this challenge, but then @RedKetchup went nuts on decorative items and I decided to wait and see what was going to happen. I think @solarscreen is right: we can wait until the decorative items production has slowed down a bit.

I agree.  There are too many shiny things lying around right now.  :D

So maybe move up the end date to end of October. Or "suspend" until further notice.

Yes, you should hang your head in shame, @RedKetchup! It is almost ENTIRELY your fault I have to keep starting over.  :P

yes I have started one (or even several  :-\ ) towns, too. Although this is really not my discipline, it makes fun to try.

And as you all; due to our eager friend @RedKetchup, I have slowed it down. ;)

The decision to increase the time is good.

It is always good to know who to blame.  ;)

Since the new date is Oct. 31 maybe @RedKetchup can do an appropriate statue for the town square.

;D

Given the course of a typical Banished town and the Halloween "deadline," we probably could use a statue honoring the Grim Reaper. ;)

Don't fear the reaper...

You can do challenges with mods, you know. Select some to include in a challenge. Their state would be that of the beginning, preferably. I dunno.

Am I reading the heading of the thread correctly, that the new end date is December 31? If so I'll be submitting my entry around Dec. 15 as we will be visiting relatives for holidays and my Mom's 90th birthday and I'll be out of range of Banished.

Great! I feared my village would go to waste, but it was no where near ready for submission. Now I even have time to start over with some of the new mods!!!!

I look forward to seeing the towns! With and without mods!
