    I was planning on making a vampire themed house for my next project anyway, but it would seem that there won't be time for the new Bastion house since the deadline is 3rd July, I'll have to think up something else.

    Also in the rules it says "(e) you warrant that the Entry has not been previously published;"
    What does published mean in this regard, since we don't officially publish our houses?

    Does the picture have to be from the live server or can we use the PTS? Also is it only limited to one picture?

    The screenshots should be taken on Live since not everyone has access to the PTS.

    How would you differentiate though? Since most people would disable the UI when taking screenshots for a cleaner look

    It's likely down to if the screenshot has content that isn't obtainable in live

    It's a nice idea, one I would have liked to try my hand at. But reading the official rules seems to once more exclude those of us living in Sweden (as well as many other countries) *sad*
    Mother Earth and Father Night gives me comfort, protection and shelter every step I take.
    Brother Sun gives me the warmth I need, while Sister Moon lit my path so I don't get lost.
    Auntie Life follows me on my journey until Uncle Death sing me the last lullaby.

    I hope not :lol: I took my Screenshots of the house only (like the house loading screens we have).
    Using characters (maybe even guildies, acting out a scene) would distract from the actual housing design imo.

    We might have a situation like the 'Daedric Outfit contest' where the winner won by standing in front of a constructed feather wing done with furnishings, which had nothing to do with the outfit system that the contest was supposed to be about.

    I know someone who would also like clarification on this - "If only what is in the screenshot is what will be judged, can we only decorate part of a house for the contest? Or does the whole house need to be finished?"

    Thanks!
