Out of the 17 entries, 12 winners have been selected! Each of these winning stations will be put in game as capturable space stations, hopefully within a few weeks (I'm also busy studying for my SAT exams on May 5th, so I have limited time.)
Note: Due to the large amount of stations without any area shields or defensive weapons, the minimum score even if there are none present for these categories is 15/30
Station 1 (MrNoty)
First place by 1 point, this station was rated 26/30 for exterior, 24/30 for interior, 27/30 for area shields, and 19/30 for weapons. It also received 9 bonus points for its ship factory on the inside. It would've been surpassed by MrNoty's other station, which made third place, but this one looked more complete and less rushed to the judges and thus got three more total points.
Prize: 100k and a space plot
Total Score: 105
Station 2 (jekron)
Just barely in second place, this station was rated 23/30 for exterior, 5/30 for interior, 27/30 for shields, and 20/30 for weapons. It also received 9 bonus points for its myriad interesting little things on the inside. It is notable for exemplary area shielding.
Prize: 50k and a space plot
Total Score: 104
Station 3 (MrNoty)
Though having great potential, this ambitious station was a bit too rushed. Nevertheless, it still won third place with a rating of 26/30 for exterior, 23/30 for interior, 21/30 for area shields, and 24 for weapons. It also received 8 bonus points for its mega turret and docking things. It is notable for sheer size.
No prize, since MrNoty already won first place
Total Score: 102
Station 4 (Evra007)
With an interesting array of defenses, this station won fourth place with a rating of 23/30 exterior, 22/30 interior, 19/30 area shields, and 24/30 weapons. It also received 11 bonus points for its glorious TIE fighter mountings.
Prize: 25k and a space plot
Total Score: 99
Station 5 (Jurulk)
A picture speaks a thousand words. Nevertheless, I will say that it received a score of 21/30 for exterior, 24/30 for interior, 27/30 for shields, and 15/30 for weapons. It also received 11 bonus points for that little spinning redstone lamp light thing.
Prize: 10k and a space plot
Total Score: 98
Station 6 (Gutin_Unto_Dawn)
This station is a personal favorite of mine - it simply looks like a space station, moreso than any other entry. Regardless, it received a score of 26/30 exterior, 19/30 interior, 21/30 shield, and 22/30 weapon. It also received 2 bonus points from me for looking like a space station
Prize: Beta Plot
Total Score: 90
Station 7 (Jurulk)
This would certain have been first place... had it had area shields and weapons. As it is, it received a ranking of 27/30 exterior, 25/30 interior, 15/30 area shields, and 15/30 weapons. It's truly a disappointment that it only got 7th.
No prize, since Jurulk already won 5th place.
Total Score: 82
Station 8 (K9_Caper)
A rather unique station, this one got 23/30 exterior, 15/30 interior, 15/30 shields, and 15/30 weapons. It also got 13 bonus points for uniqueness.
Prize: 50k credits
Total Score: 81
Station 9 (Gutin_Unto_Dawn)
Although fairly impressive, this station is a bit plain and doesn't stand out much. As such, it received 24/30 exterior, 18/30 interior, 21/30 shield, and 16/30 weapon.
Total Score: 79
Station 10 (FadedRaichu)
This one looks pretty small and incomplete, and thus received 21/30 exterior, 19/30 interior, 15/30 shield, and 18/30 weapon.
Total Score: 73
Station 11 (Emeris)
Slightly unique for using orange, this got 16/30 exterior, 12/30 interior, 18/30 shield, 15/30 weapon. It also received 1 bonus point for orange. (It's orange!)
Total Score: 62
Station 12 (Nika123yoyo123)
This person low-key did not submit it themself, I had to submit it for them... anyway, it got 20/30 exterior, 10 interior, 15 shield, and 15 weapon. It also got 1 bonus point... not sure why.
Total Score: 61
That's all for now. Expect to see these stations in game soon(TM). Until next time!
