Building Contest & AMA Event

Recommended Posts

Dear Pre-Alpha testers,
Two things are coming for the playtest, Saturday February 3rd!


Outpost Building Contest

Now that we have implemented a (basic) version of the Blueprint feature, we are planning to organize a few contests in the coming months. To celebrate the implementation of new Elements (decorative for the time being), the first contest will start on Saturday, February 3rd. Show your builder skills by creating an outpost! It can be underground or in the sky, but the construct shouldn’t be a vehicle.


The goal:

Building the most kickass outpost during the next playtests.


The time frame:

The event starts at 2.00 pm UTC on Saturday, February 3rd. 
It ends at 11.00 pm UTC on Saturday, March 10th.
(You will have 2 Saturdays and 4 Fridays of playtests to make it)


The prizes:

1st place:
- The outpost will be showcased in an upcoming Blog post
- 3 Beta Keys (to share with your friends)
- 3 DACs


2nd place:
- The outpost will be showcased in an upcoming Blog post
- 2 Beta Keys (to share with your friends)
- 2 DACs


3rd place:
- The outpost will be showcased in an upcoming Blog post
- 1 Beta Key (to share with a friend)
- 1 DAC


Criteria selection list:


The winners will be selected by a jury formed with the Novaquark staff.
We will take into account the following criteria:

  • The outpost must be a static construct.
  • The outpost must be made with only one construct.
  • The outpost must have a (serious) Sci-Fi vibe.
  • The outpost should be good looking and creative.
  • The outpost shouldn’t represent a copyrighted asset from another Sci-Fi universe.


AMA (Ask Me Anything) In-game Event

On Saturday, February 3rd, JC Baillie will be connected in-game and will answer your questions! 
We will give your further information on the topic in the coming days.


Best Regards,
The Novaquark team.

In order to give you more possibilities for your outpost, more Elements will be implemented in-game for the playtest next Saturday!

Here are the new Elements (only decorative at the moment, no gameplay associated to them yet):

Additional info about both events happening tomorrow:


In-game AMA event with JC: when and where.

  • It will take place at 14:15 UTC (the server will open at 14:00 UTC as planned) and may last up to 1 hour.
  • We will give the in-game coordinates where it takes place. You will also be able to use the teleporter near the Tutorial area to go where the AMA will take place.
  • The questions will have to be posted in a special chat channel "AMA" (no question posted in the general chat will be taken into account).
  • Once in-game, to join the channel "AMA", use the command: /join AMA
  • As there is chance you will be many to have questions, please don't flood the channel with more questions before JC had the time to answer the first ones.


Rewards for the Outpost Building contest when a group of players is involved

  • It will be possible to build an Outpost with friends. However, the limit is set at 10 players per Outpost.
  • It won't be possible to participate to several Outposts submitted for the contest: if you are registered as participant for several Outposts, you won't be eligible for any reward.
  • The owner of the Outpost (the person who deployed the Core Unit of the Outpost and only her) will get the reward mentioned in the first post of the topic.
  • Other players participating to this Outpost will get 1 DAC as a reward, if the Outpost is among the three winning ones.
  • It's up to the owner of the Outpost to list all his friends participating to his Outpost.
  • The list must be sent to our customer support at community@novaquark.com to be validated.


Best Regards,
