But who won? Well we had to give it to @Fompster and her picturesque church ? But others were just as good, so the runner ups are as follows: @Christalle and her...dare I say Elven home?

Will this be in the new Ylands World of Dreams map? If so, I better pack my Ankh for the journey. And again thank you so much for sending in your creations and screenshots. It really means a lot to us ? Well until next time stay classy Ylanders.

Contest Building Contest #1 - Winners
Adam Snellgrove posted a topic in General DiscussionSo here it is! The end of our first building contest! And just WOW guys! Such great creations. It really blew us away. It was so hard to pick the winners. It really is amazing, what you're able to make in Ylands and a testament to the talent of our lovely community ❤️ But enough of my blubbering and unto the main event: 3rd place goes to @Igor Q. and his super cool hipster turntable! It is such a shame scripting isn't possible for Playlands, because the idea of changing the music this way is excellent! To you, we send 2200 Coyns. 2nd place belongs to @Spyler.X and his adorable cats! Nearly as adorable as the real thing ? To you goes 4400 Coyns. And finally, 1st place goes to... @Fompster and her magnificent peacock! It is a thing of beauty and we'll be honoured to have it in Playlands. To you goes the grand prize of 6600 Coyns. But all the rest of you were absolutely great too! @Christalle and her ladybug riding pet, @Miguel Preguisa and his Adam and Eve tempting snake and @MyPa553ng3r with his impressive statues and we thank you so much for these beautiful creations, they really are proof of the dedication of this community to keep making cool things on this fun platform, that is Ylands ? And now for the winners, we are going to make a special place in Playlands, where we'll put these items on show as a kind of museum of great creations. You will have a plaque telling all, who these talented creators are. It will take some time to build and implement, but it will definitely be there before full release and probably even sooner. What we need from the winners now is to send us your compositions (through private messages to me, if you'd like) made in editor, then found as .ycomp file located in PF(x86)/Steam/userdata/YYY/XXX/remote/Compositions folder or via the editor. Please send us these ASAP, so we can start working on implementing them into Playlands ? And again thank you all again for the spectacular creations and stay tuned for more contests in the future.
Contest Mobile Game Creation Drive
Adam Snellgrove posted a topic in General DiscussionHey there Ylanders! We have some exciting news today. So exciting in fact, that I couldn’t wait for the next Dev Diary to tell you ? So, we are in the process of making the mobile version (iOS only for now) of Ylands available to you through a closed beta via Testflight and with that, we are also starting a sort of competition. We’d really like to populate Ylands with some fun mobile mini-games and games and to encourage this, we decided, that whoever makes a mobile game in universal mode (playable on mobile devices) will have a chance at winning some Coyns. In fact, we’ll be reviewing every mobile game that comes out between now and release and if we feel it’s playable, fun a cool, we’ll give the creator some Coyns for it ? Now if you decide to make a protected (monetized or not) mobile game, you’ll be eligible to win a 3000 Coyns, while if you make an unprotected game (thus automatically not monetized), you’ll have a chance (to be honest a pretty big chance) at winning 10,000 Coyns! Unprotected games are more valuable for us, because for one they are not monetized and thus will give new mobile players a better first impression and secondly they don’t use up our servers, which could prove to be a problem in the first few weeks after release. And now here’s the kicker! There will be no limit to this! No 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, but anyone who makes a cool mobile game will get this prize AND YOU CAN GET IT MULTIPLE TIMES! So if you make 10 cool unprotected games for mobile, you’ll get a whopping 100,000 Coyns (and believe me, you’ll want to hoard those for the future ?). Every time you make a cool new game and are finished with it, just DM me and we’ll test it out. If it is good and fun, we’ll send over your winnings and if we feel, like something could go better, we’ll send you our suggestions and help you out with making it the best game out there ? To recap, hopefully, tomorrow we’ll have the mobile beta ready for you. Thus, you’ll be able to test out your games on mobile. Then for every cool game you make, you’ll get a reward in Coyns. And finally, when release comes, we’ll choose the best games to be featured and get played by all our new mobile players! So happy building Ylanders! P.S.

Contest Screenshot Contest Week 6
Adam Snellgrove posted a topic in General DiscussionAnd now for something completely different...or maybe not? Let's get back to some good old-fashioned screenshots. It has been too long and it's time to see, what you've been up to. Especially in the new Mobile Beta! That's why this week the screenshot contest will be Mobile themed. We want to see, what you're up to in the Mobile beta, what you managed to create or what experiences you had. So as long the screenshot has the two sexy joysticks, we're game. And as always, the deadline is Friday 10am CET and the top three will get some lovely Coyn Prizes. And if you're still not in the Mobile Beta, get in there! There is still a lot of spaces to fill, so don't hesitate to join and tell us, what you think of it. Can bears scale a wall?...I sure hope not... And that's it, so start screenshotting and stay classy Ylanders!
