As mentioned by @JHartEllis on Twitch, we are holding a What the FX contest throughout the majority of February.

The requirements are simple: a PC NA, publicly accessible, decorated home that leverages Essential Housing Tools' FX system to add at least 5 effects to the home.

Judging will be based on how well the FX enhance the aesthetic of the home and how well they integrate with the overall build.

Submissions must be sent using the new "Share with Mail" option from EHT's FX menu to @Cardinal05.

All submissions must be received no later than Feb 25th.

3 Winners will be announced both here and by @JHartEllis on Twitch on March 1.

The winners:
  • Can submit one custom effect to Essential Housing Tools' library of FX (submitted in the form of an image)
  • Can submit a Wax Figure of one of their characters to be added to the library of FX as well (submitted in the form of a screen capture)
  • Will be featured on @JHartEllis' stream

    Mostly because you can't transfer prize gold/items between servers. So awarding prizes in EU when you're on NA is a PIA.

    Unfortunately Necessary Signature:

    MAX CP, played since beta, yes I know the game. Also worked in software dev/ops so yes, I know what I'm talking about.

    If you read this and rolled your eyes, maybe you need to stop assuming women don't know ***.

    prizes are fx effects, they are addon wide, not bound to a server...

    all they need to do is login to their eu account and come have a look what the Europeans are doing, can do with a lvl 1 character. the other way around Europeans would have to go to na and have a fully build up account to create a house, would take months.

    I know that Cardi was looking into ways to include the EU server, immozz. :) Which is not to say we don't all fear your creativity. ;)

    Your Hunter's Glade looks fantastic. <3

    Love the finished version @immozz01! I saw the first video and just loved the drawbridge animation. The issue is that our coin and prizes do not transfer to EU. @JHartEllis has been kind and generous enough to help "beef" up the prizes. Will see how this goes, perhaps in the future EU can be a part if there was interterested party's able to aid in prize winnings or some other work around. Just hold tight EU! Keep creating! This is only the first of Cardinal05's EHT contests and I'm sure there will be more to come with EU included! Cheers!

    Sorry, I have been busy trying to complete fixes to the FX system, the FX sharing features and the FX that I wanted to add to round out the selection.

    The reason for limiting this first contest to NA server entries only was purely due to FX sharing feature availability. I was not sure if I would realistically be able to complete all of the features necessary for the judges to be able to share the data submitted for entries across both servers in time for this first contest's window.

    But ... good news: Thanks to @immozz01 and his very generous guild, I now have gold on the EU server for the next competition that can be used as prize money :smile: which is kind of awesome (because I am relatively broke on the NA server) ;-P

    So I have little FX spread throughout my home that go more with the overall aesthetic, but I've also set the place up for a party this weekend and the decor (and accompanying FX) don't really go with the rest of the home. Maybe I should try to have you judge on just the party space? Is that possible?
