Admin Build-Off Official Thread
Join to comment
 Group admin 
This is the official thread for the admin contest build-off. Remember that the main point of judging will be how closely it follows the Coalition style. Still, you can't win without it being a decent creation either. We would like you to build all three of these:

A space vessel

A land vehicle

A vignette or scene

Please make them really look like,"Hey! That's a C.O.P. creation! Big and armored 'n stuff."

Post a link to your creations here and add them to the group. Please keep comments irrelevant to the contest away.

Question if I had a land vehicle built prior but had not yet posted said vehicle would it still be a legitimate entry?


I believe it would be fair to everyone if you had to build something new. What if I was a moderator and decided to enter the Hammer of Thyr from August as my entry for a ship, while other people started from the ground up? Nay, no old entires. You must build a new one.

This is where I hit a bump; I've recently rebuilt my A1-Hercules shuttle,
[as in destroying it and building it with advanced features]
Does that count as a new moc, pictures can be provided if required.

Well, it's destroyed and the rebuilt... I think that counts. Gus, Ian, what say you?

I was wondering what would be under the ship category, a micro or a fig scale?


Micro scale, but large fig scale works too. No AOS-style planes though, that's a bit too easy for this kind of thing.

If it has significant differences. And if he feels it is a true Coalition style creation.

That is one real brain stwister. I suppose if you were to rebuild it from the ground up and make sure that parts were signifactly different then it would be a viable entry.

These are very touchy subbjects so in future lets try and avoid using anything previously built as an entry.

I think he's talking about a complete rebuild; same general shape, and size, but with the skills he's collected since then. Sorta like one of those contests where you take your first posted moc and remake it.

OK i've got the idea for the space ship, the land craft will most likely die flailing around but the vig whatever it may be could stand up well

EDIT: i've finished the spaceship and the vehicle, vig to be started

also deadline?


I am also very interested in this Deadline. Between several pointless school projects, Wuthering Heights and the end of Season 4 of Galactica, I have not all that much time right now. What I was thinking was that people should post one of the three by a certain date and then we could have another date for a second and the final one. That way the judges have a bit of time to go through the entries and people can post whichever ones they have been able to finish first. What are the things judged for apart from staying true to Coalition style?

I agree with your idea, then our judges dont get fd up trying to grade 50+ mocs in a night.

In an exciting turn of events, just us admins will be judging. In light of everyone else being a contestant.

I like that too, I think we should go with it. And judging isn't going to be that hard, we aren't assigning points or anything, or even saying which ones we think are better than others, we just pick one person who does well enough in all three and is a good person to be admin. Simple

Awe. I'm in trouble.
I write this comment from a Prison located a long way away from home. It is called Boarding School.
I have two creations finished, but no pics to post [Aside from the ones in your Gmail].
ETA for Home is about 3 weeks.

There is no deadline yet. I say we keep that way for now, we do want a fair chance for people involved. After all, it takes me a while to build my best stuff, so I won't be a hypocrite and ask you to perform amazing feats in short time.

Sounds good. Since you hooked me on BSG and we were just given some HUGE project on blues music that we're supposed to finish in a couple days.
Vignette - Still to be completed
Ship - Done
Land Vehicle - still in concept stages.

One question, though, for the Vig category, are there any restrictions on overhang?

I hope not... Also are their any other requirements or restrictions?
