[OKT] Oktoberfest 2020 mini-challenge, Classic Pirates style!

Recommended Posts

It's that time of year again: time for Oktoberfest!

The annual BoBS Oktoberfest celebration features food and drink, contests of skill, games and amusements, traditional/historical costumes, food and drink (did we mention food and drink?), and more.

But this year there’s a twist: It’s a Classic Pirate celebration as well!

Normally the big Oktoberfest celebration takes place in Weelond, but this year things move east to the Eslandolan hamlet of Punto Sur on Maldria in the New Haven Sea. So far there is only a trading post at the settlement, so there’s a lot of room for growth.

Rules:

Entries for this year’s Oktoberfest should showcase a property built in the Classic Pirate aesthetic, either in traditional 1989 form or updated for 2020 style and techniques.

Your entry should show an Oktoberfest activity in Punto Sur, with an emphasis on a growing colonial outpost. Show new residents taking part in the festivities while making a new life in the islands. Entries should represent licensable properties.

In addition to posting your entry in the forum (ideally with a [OKT] tag in the title), please post a link to your build in this thread and in the Punto Sur settlement thread. Entries must be posted by October 31.
 

Categories:

Categories are for six property types: Artisan, Commerce, Factory, Residence, Education, and Culture. Identify what category you're entering when you post your entry. Entries will be judged on presentation, quality of build, story, fit with Punto Sur's architectural style (Classic Pirate, both retro and modern), and fit with the Oktoberfest/festival theme. The only size requirement is a 16x16 minimum.
 

Prizes:

The top entry in each category will win a free small property license, to be activated by microbuild, usable only in the New Haven Sea. An overall winner will have his license upgraded to a large property, and the overall runner-up will have his license upgraded to a medium property.

Builders will also be reimbursed for licensing costs for any property licensed through the EGS, or Capt Wolf will purchase (at 3x the license cost) any property a builder does not wish to license.

Classic Pirates and Oktoberfest? I couldn't think of a better combo! Can't wait to see what everyone builds.

Both.

A retro build will look like it belongs in a set from 1989.

A modern build will use advanced roof techniques rather than a red plate or red slopes, use brick-built walls rather than panels, show detail through building techniques rather than printing, show more complex structures rather than just a hinge plate for a crane.

Most modern builds will likely be more of a hybrid. The existing trading post in Punto Sur is a good example. It qualifies as modern with 1x1 round bricks for the roof, an irregular base, and a robust crane and dock, but it also uses the printed wall panels from the classic sets. And this is really where I expect most entries to land: with some modern techniques or styles, but some reliance on parts from the classic sets. Basically, I want to see what people can do with what's available to them today (both in parts and building styles), but inspired by the sets from our younger days.

@Capt Wolf

I have an idea for Oktoberfest. I would like to build these and license them myself. I am a Sea Rats but Punto Sur belong to Eslandola. It can happen that by accident one or more Eslandola ship sinks, or something else happened.. Will my property be seize? Is there a guarantee it won't happen?

Property:

If you build legally on another faction’s territory the government of the other faction is also able to seize your property (except in the case of forts, in which case a military engagement will have to be fought).

NOD, we won't seize the properties because of a ship here or there. Now, if the Sea Rats were to invade an ESL settlement or island, that would be another matter. :pir-oh:  But we've made it almost 5 years in BoBS without any properties being seized, so you should be ok.

Should I post a topic for it to be licenced or is it over to you?

I'll take care of it. I don't need to re-post anything; I just need to fill out the property licensing form in the EGS. However, you should make sure to get credit for the build by filling out the Build Submittal Form in the BoBS Master Index (if you haven't already).

This one has been sold to @Capt Wolf

Large Educational build, The Punto Sur Academy of Science, with Dean Eddington in charge... I think he'll be ok. I have licensed this one with the proceeds from the above sale.

Trying to figure out how to change the license from a small commercial to a small artisan

@Ayrlego, can you help out with this?

2 hours ago, CapOnBOBS said:

This is also licensed, a small cultural. Again... I think... unless Capt Wolf didn't cover the tab, in which case, I'm 2 weeks into this and broke. 

I'll get the payment sent out this week! :pir-huzzah2:
