Building Contest: Tower of the Elephant (NOW ENDED)

It’s time for another building contest! It has been a while since we’ve had one, so we hope you missed these as much as we have. If you didn’t get a chance to participate previously, make sure to check out the incredible winners of the Tiny Homes Contest and Building Recreation Contest.

The contest this time around is a special one! We are working together with Perilous Worlds and Conan Properties International, LLC to celebrate the launch of their board game on Kickstarter: Conan the Cimmerian: Tower of the Elephant. Using the game box and the pieces inside, you will be able to make a 3D Tower of the Elephant right on your tabletop. Take a look at the pictures, gameplay, and many more details on their Kickstarter here! Now see how you can win one yourself!

whattodo

We are challenging you to build your own Tower of the Elephant in Conan Exiles. In the story, Conan is greeted with lions, spiders, treasures, and more. The details and how you’d like to present them is up to you! You can also take inspiration from the comic books of the same story.

Once your tower is complete you can take screenshots, video, or create your own comic. Just make sure it’s from within the Conan Exiles game. You don’t need to only include the tower; you can also include other aspects such as the garden surrounding it.

Judging will be based on creativity; how will you construct the Tower of the Elephant? The panel of judges consist of Community Managers at Funcom, as well as the masterminds behind The Tower of the Elephant board game.

Sounds like a fun challenge.

Does the tower need to resemble the Tower of the Elephant (either in the game or the story) or can it be a members vision of such a tower?

Its one of 1st stories I read to… Thou I always pictured it like Tower of Snake they climbed in movie.

Someone may want to post part of story that describe it. Throw in spider warning. XD

This is amazing! I just re-read it recently! (Like no joke 2 days ago, along with beyond the Black River) Then saw the update and found this. Totally going to give this a try. Wish we could add piles of gold and gems. Definitely need to add a stealthy fat man hanging around in the bushes near the garden.This should be fun.

Oh, cool. I could always use another T-shirt.

Yep. Pity we can’t use mods. Adding bushes and fat men and throwable treasure chests is much harder on vanilla. But I guess that’s what makes this a challenge.

You have some creative freedom with it. You can build it in your own vision since it doesn’t go into a TON of detail in the stories. As long as it’s not just some random structure. :b

I do love the building contests, brings out the best of Conan Exiles. Also, as much fun it is to fiddle around building yourself, seing what others come up with kinda tops that in my opinion.

You can do it in single player with admin tools :^) no need to gather materials just make yourself an admin then press shift+ctrl+alt+f10 (i don’t know if it’s possible on consoles with another command) and spawn any material from the admin panel. you can build as much as you want.

i already own the key, may i please if selected, save that free DLC “coupon” to be traded for an incoming new DLC?

PS, i have already built one in my server using that tower as inspiration (does still count? -need to finish it-

Unfortunately not, but if you already have this DLC and you win you’re of course welcome to give it away or trade it or whatever. Sorry about that!
If your tower is based on Tower of the Elephant and follows the rules of what we’ve written out that’s fine.

Would it be acceptable to set the land claim radius to the lowest setting to preserve trees and bushes around the building?

You can do whatever admin/game settings you wish as long as it’s not a mod. :slight_smile:

Not as fun a contest as the last one. At least it had participation rewards.

Sorry for this question, but my English are a bit low, so, do we have a rule for how big construction it can be? I allready work this project, but Singleplayer, admin mode. So you understand that the materials are limitless. Will i still be in the contest if it will become a little big?

I’m sure @Spynosaur_Nicole will answer you soon, but I don’t see anything saying there is a limit to the size.

Heya! There is no size limit at all! :slight_smile: Build as big as you want!

Hi,
One question.I sent a mail but i got this message
" A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

[email protected]

Is it still valid ?

The instructions for the contest states submissions should be sent to a different address.

It was sent to [email protected] .That’s why i am a bit confused that i got error and redirected to another mail.

That is strange. Wonder if other’s had that issue.
