Uplift from the site:

In a bid to get the modding contest going (observant members may have realised its been some time since any of this was announced, but fortunately, we do have our theme (if not done by staff tally count, but I think my pick is a good one).

The theme....drum rolls please...............

Anyone need a station? That's right, the unforgotten models of the Armada game, we're asking you to develop any type of station for our modest modding contest. Rules below.

  • Admissions, to go to the standard inbox wtih the title 'Christmas Modding Contest Entry', will be accepted up to and including the 20th of December. The winner will go up solo on December 25th with all runner-ups being posted on the following day, as to give the winner some time's grace.
  • There is no official prize. What you will win though is bonefied bragging rights and the title of the 2007 Christmas Modding Contest (so probably some fancy signature design).
  • Applicants can send in as many entries as they wish. Remember, competition is FUN!
  • The contest is open to anyone and everyone.
  • There is no limit on poly count, but do aim to try and keep it reasonable.
  • Entry can be for Armada 1 or 2.
  • Stations can be of any type, be it turret or special weapons station.
  • The entries will be judged by all the staff on the following measures:
  • How 'complete' the file is. Does it have an admiral's pic or a build button?
  • Does it fit the purpose it was built for? It may be a mining station, but does it really look as if it could hold more than 2 grams of sugar?
  • Does it fit the race it was built for? It may be Klingon, but it does it have any disruptor ports on it?!
If anything changes, we'll let you know, but, start to it modders!

Feel free to use this thread for updates, pics, discussion etc. etc. just like the one in the summer. As Ragnar asked though and to confirm, the stations are not limited to Star Trek.

I like it. Some kind of funky giant shipyard/starbase. I remembered that a station I was working on I can't release :( Stupid Games Workshop policies lol. Have to be creative now lol.

...and we've already received our first entries!

A quick question to you though:

Do you think the limit on entries is too strict? For example, if someone does decide to make, say, 3, should all of them be accepted or should, like it originally said, only be 2?

I think you should allow 3-4 entries. the argument that you'd rather recieve quality models is valid but the winner will still be the best model you get wont it. The thing with stations is many people will have created them and never released, so here is a good opportunity.
