Ahoy, my fellow Dis pirates! Aarrr! I am issuing a challenge to ALL DISers to build a 3 to 6 room ride. Use some of those pretty credits you've all won playing those quests! You can build any type of ride you wish, using any items in the game. Anything goes! What will you be playing for? Aaah...let's see what Miss Mims has in her inventory worthy of such an event...how about a BETA Green Rocket! Yeah, technically not true beta, but still a pretty good item, no?
Okay, rules! Not many rules this time. I only ask that everyone who enters has been with the Dis for at least a month and gives me a teleporter to the start room of their rides. Pretty simple, eh? Good. There will be other prizes, if you wish them. I can offer prize packages similar to my Dis Kids contest, but the top prize will still be the green rocket.
So, post your Dis name in this thread and build a ride to be completed by next Sunday, close of vmk. Yes! Only a week! Can you do it? Yes! Let's all make this month the best month ever!

Hmmm.... I might just join this!

I did my first room ever today (two rooms with rides) and had a blast! There's no way I could have done it without the uber credit prize! :lmao:

Lemme see if my feeble brain can pull together a third room and I'll let you know! :)

Great idea!

I can't say how fast the rides will be judged, I need all of the teleporters first and get all of the judges in to see the rides, but we'll go as quickly as possible!
As soon as your rides are ready, or you have at least the teleporter to your start room, send me a pm with a day and time to meet on vmk to trade that teleporter to me. I'll set up a Dis teleporter lobby. Seems I have a few empty rooms...hehe!

Goofy05
04-24-2008, 11:27 AM
Okay, Peeps! I have extended the deadline for submissions to May 4th. I added this extra week due to all the new quests we've had and all the riding we've been doing for SITS prizes.
If anyone is interested in helping to judge the rides, please send me a pm.
Thanks!

Aww, don't worry about a theme! ;) Just buy a bunch of ride pieces and take it from there! I'm greatful for the big credit quests that are allowing me to actually build a room or two!! :) I'm sure many rooms will be better, but building them and having some friends check them out have been a wonderful distraction for me. :hug:

Themes are great, but this is a free-for-all ride, anything goes! Just build what looks good to you and have fun doing it. :) Are you into Pirates? Build a piratey ride, Matey! Like colors? Use as many as you like! Magic? Animals? Oceans? The possibilities are only limited by your imagination...:) Maybe you already have a few rooms built that you want to showcase. That would work as well.

OK...I'm thinking about trying this. I'm going to see what I can accomplish this weekend :surfweb: and then confirm or back out. :rotfl:

I'm terrified. Is that the right emotion for embarking on this adventure? :scared1:

One more question: When is the deadline? I just want to be sure that we have this weekend, all of next week, and then how long after that before we must be done?

Please remember -- My VMK name is RikiStarlet.

I have extended the deadline for submissions to May 4th. Rides completed by May 4th and teleporters in my hub. That gives us time to judge the rides.
Don't fear the build! heh It's a great challenge and I can't wait to see what you all can do in a short time frame. Even I am building a new ride, which should be complete by tomorrow. Then, another ride! Woot!

Does the ride have to be continuous all the way through the room? Or can it stop at one point and people walk to the other? Some of my actual rides are short, and I'm afraid the room won't fully load before a person exits if there isn't a break.

This is a personal choice....most rides are continuous, but some builders want people to stay in their rooms a while. As long as there is a clear path to the start piece, I would say it's fine to have a break in the ride. :) There is another alternative...I have done this myself. Use start pieces in a row and people will 'walk' through your rooms. It slows everyone down long enough for your room to load, yet doesn't make them have to click anything to continue on your ride. Just an alternative. :)

I have (I think...) seven teleporters already! This is awesome! Keep up the good work, Peeps! Woot!

Now that I am off to the races, I just really suggest you all quit. You dont stand a chance!!!

Eeyore's Pal
04-30-2008, 02:34 PM
I am moving along...thanks to the extraordinary generousity of so many DIS pals!

I have one room finished and parts of the other two.

I have a question about linking rooms: Should I leave my first room so that you just walk in and click on the ride start? Or, I could make that room accessible from a teleporter in my Main Street Cafe -- which is not part of the ride.

I'd appreciate any opinions.

Also, a question about the teleporter that Mimi needs to collect for judging: Is the other end of that teleporter supposed to be in my room #1?

Thanks for your help.

You can link your rooms any way you wish. I've done both. :)

Yup! My teleporter should take me into your ride's first room. It doesn't have to connect directly to the ride, just gets me there.

One more note to everyone: Please make sure all of your ride rooms are open to everyone. Can't see them if they're locked. heh

Goofy, I'm just trying to figure out where to put my teleporter, then I'll be getting it's sibling to you ASAP. I may put it in my Treasure Cave, instead of the same room as the ride start, so that things look nicer. :goodvibes

Thank you for organising the competition, it should be good fun!

Your teleporter is your entry, no need to post. I'll list everyone who has given me their teleporter after close of vmk Sunday, May 4th. The teleporter hub will be open to everyone on Monday, so your friends can enjoy the wonderful rides you've all worked so hard on!
Woot!

Eeyore's Pal
05-03-2008, 09:32 PM
Mimi, I'm confused. :confused:
If I give you a teleporter into the first room is that what goes into the hub room? Because I placed that teleporter in an out of the way spot and it would be inconvenient to get on my ride from there. So do I really need to start that first room from the connection to the hub teleporter? Right now you would just enter that room and then click on the ride to start. The teleporter is way off in another corner out of sight.

Anyone who wants in on this, please send me a pm with a time to meet on vmk to give me a teleporter. PLEASE, when you give me a time, don't pm me saying "I'm on now" because I probably won't get your message until an hour later. Try giving me a time before you'll be on.
Thanks!

I have closed the hub for the night, but will reopen tomorrow sometime early in the evening for a short time. By then, I hope to have a winner to announce as well. I want to thank everyone who entered for doing this, you all showed us that we can still find fun in vmk! I also want to thank everyone who came to see the wonderful rides our fellow Dis peeps built! I was amazed at how many DISers came to show support. Very cool!

Hey, everyone! I'll be opening my room which will have a teleporter to the Dis rides. Look for the Tron teleporter near the gate to my cafe for the Dis teleporter hub. I can't give you specific times I'll be on, as I'll be off and on most of the evening, but search my rooms when you have a chance.
Thanks to all who've entered and worked so hard to build such amazing rides in such a short time! I'll post a winner soon!

I want to thank everyone! Builders, riders and judges. You all came out and made this fun. Thank you!!

Congratulations, Lady Boadicea!

Here are the top five rides, according to myself and the judges:

1. LadyBoadicea
2. HoboWendy
3. RikiStarlet
4. FlyingPegasus
5. Aengus

I took everyone's favorites into account and it was a tie for the top spot. I asked one more person to ride just those two and that's how I chose the winning ride. Congratulations to all of those who entered and built such awesome rides in such a short time! Nothing short of amazing.

I took everyone's favorites into account and it was a tie for the top spot. I asked one more person to ride just those two and that's how I chose the winning ride. Congratulations to all of those who entered and built such awesome rides in such a short time! Nothing short of amazing.

Woot! I had a great time with this!
I'm going to open my Garden Cafe at 6:30pm vmk time for about half an hour or so. There is a teleporter link to the Dis contest hub from there, you all are welcome to ride the rides! If anyone would like to sit in the Dis hub to keep it open later, that would be awesome! Also, any prize winners who would like to pick up their prize, that would be great, too!
Thanks again to everyone who participated and showed support to the Dis peeps!

Woot! Congratulations everyone, all the rides were amazing!

Mims, thank you so much for organising this competition, it was lovely to have a chance to see what the Dis can produce! I must say, though, I didn't envy you the task of judging :goodvibes
