Star Control Origins Ship Designing Contest

Do you think of yourself as a legendary shipwright with greatness just waiting to be discovered? Maybe you can join the GREAT STAR CONTROL ORIGINS SHIP BUILDING CONTEST!

That’s right, we are challenging those with the Fleet Battles beta to build the best spaceship in this or any other galaxy! The winners, of which we will select 10, will go down in Star Control: Origins history as legendary shipwrights and quite possibly a little too good at cutting corners and meeting deadlines.

Rules - By entering this contest you are agreeing to the following:

- The contest will be held from this date (December 19th) until Christmas Eve at midnight (the 24th/25th).

- You may submit any number of ships within reason, but each entrant will only win from one ship from what they submit. So make sure they are your best.

- Winners will be announced after our space elves (Altarians) reach a decision working through night and day on December 27th.

- The ship must work in-game as a viable fighter. It can’t be a “show ship”.

- Each ship must be uploaded to Steam Workshop for consideration.

- Your ship must be an original creation, not copying an existing design (e.g. USS Enterprise).

- Including lore/background for your ship is optional but not mandatory.

- Void where prohibited. Prizes contain no cash value.

How to Enter

1. Design your ship in Star Control: Origins.

2. Submit your ship to the Star Control: Origins Steam Workshop. http://steamcommunity.com/app/731360/workshop/

3. Post a link to your Steam Workshop submission in the comments of this post.

4. Supply us your email here. http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/ccb250eb2/
Prizes

From the entrants, we will select 3 winners and 2 runner-ups. Those winners will get to pick from any 2 game keys from this list, whilst runner-ups will get to pick only 1:

- Galactic Civilizations III + Crusade

- Ashes of the Singularity Escalation

- Sins of a Solar Empire Ultimate

- Offworld Trading Company

About This Game

Explore a living galaxy filled with alien civilizations, new and exotic worlds, pulse pounding combat, and a deep, rich history that is yours to unravel!

Congratulations! You are the Captain of Earth's very first interstellar ship. That's good. Really good. So very good. There's just one small problem. Barely worth mentioning but a hostile alien race known as the Scryve want to exterminate us. We need you to go find allies, discover and use these so-called Precursor relics to upgrade your ship and try to avoid getting eaten along the way so that you can save humanity. We don't want you to feel pressure though. Just the very future of the human race rests on your shoulders.

Star Control: Origins is in development! You can pre-order it now and get access to the Betas. Do so and you get the game at a discount as the price will rise the closer we get to finishing.

Beta 1: Fleet Battles. Assemble your ships into a fleet and take them into combat online, against devious computer opponents or against your soon-to-be former friend sitting next to you. You can also craft your own ships and fight with them and share them online. Available 11/16/17

Beta 2: World Maker. Build your own worlds, share them or add worlds others create. Then send your Lander to explore the surface, find relics and fight alien creatures. Available: This Winter.

Beta 3: Creator of Universes. Create a universe...within a universe! Alternatively, download universes others make and visit them and find out their stories, aliens, ships, planets! Available: After this Winter.

Final release: When it's done. Seriously, you'll tell us when it's ready. Right? I mean you wouldn't just make us work on this forever. That would be wrong. Cruel even. Star Control: Origins has a lot to live up to.

Features:

  • Interact with aliens, both malicious and absurd.
