Athion Network recently held a three week long contest with the task to 'build an empire'. We provided our contestants with a 1015 x 1015 sized plot with custom terrain pre loaded into it (see and download the terrain here) and allowed them to work in teams of 1-6 people to make the best builds they could that would make a civilisation proud to live in or fight over.

The screenshots in this project are some of the more complete sections of the top 10 plots entered (we had 173 total entries). Some of these plots were unfortunatly not finished due to the large scale we set for them and the short timeframe as we were doing a major stresstest on what our contest world and plugin could handle.





** Note: not all builds in this list were 100% complete, renders have been made of the best section(s) of these builds, mainly the 5th place and onwards had partial built areas. **


The Winners list:

1st - DarthRiot [Solo Build]
DarthRiot had an amazingly detailed plot with a large area covered that worked well together and went well with our theme. For a solo build only over about 1.5 weeks working time as started later in the contest this stood out to us as a very outstanding job.

2nd - Kevaasaurus with helpers chiverson, PanteLegacy
Kevaasaurus' contest plot was full of amazing looking organics and some unique looking structures. It also used a large area of the contest plot and was very unique in its style.

3rd - mjegs with helpers JLord23, ultor, dayvasdayv, _Pogg, applesauce888
A great asian theme with big open areas of farmland and detailed terrain, some areas are not quite as detailed as the 1st and 2nd place but its overall completion and design along with its fluid layout bring this right into 3rd place.

4th - Sjoerdoh with helpers Alice_

5th - Aegos with helpers Cypher1025, Scylince, Nukespeeder, Bede_Alphon, goaltriper

6th - Fanker453 with helpers pls_n0, _Ripper_Roo_,Zeebrah,DancerAngel22

7th - shinezeo_siiji with helpers Kayszlo, boubs38, Gewalt_TheAppleSenpie Poseyidon

8th - geckopirate with helpers KingDutchDwarf, Domstopher, SidewaysSlab, Brooklyn_

9th - uioz with helpers RowdyArt, uniblast

10th - NotRekinSupere with helpers Lana__Del__Rey, Crucxe, jdog4400, alaiwe, Hurbi

Only reason why more pics were not shown was due to large unfinished sections in most the builds. So taking pics of the finished parts with unfinished parts behind it looked a little odd.

The idea was for big groups to work on it, most ppl tend to give up due to the size of the plots.... was a mistake on our behalf as we were testing the limitations of plot size for future contests.. in the future probally be maximum half the size it was this time around.

The timeframe however was so people wouldnt get bored and leave as we have run 1mth or longer contests before and after the 1st week most ppl forget about it or leave... we had people building constantly till mid 2nd week, then we extended an extra week and had it slowly drop off.

We plan to make it a lot better and streamlined next time :D
