Hail and well met, exiles!
We hope you’re enjoying the recent patch released to live and that it has invigorated you with creativity and adventure. Because contest time is here again! You all have built some pretty incredible and amazing structures; now it’s time to put it to the test.
The objective is simple: build a creation that resembles a famous real or fictional structure. Buildings could range from the Eiffel Tower to Sauron’s Tower, Barad-dûr! Let your creativity free; you don’t need to keep it strictly to towers or large buildings. Think of any real rollercoasters, or landmarks, or statues, or such that you’ve seen. If you’re going for a structure or building of fiction, please make sure it’s of published works! It makes us so happy to see places you all built from your own imagination, but for this contest we’ll need something to compare it to.
Once you have completed your structure with decorations and all, send us screenshots! We want to see those beauties. If you’re feeling fancy, take the screenshot at an angle of a picture of the structure you’re replicating. Just be sure to send the comparison picture as well! We will judge based on creativity and accuracy of the structure you’re replicating. Double check that the screenshot you’re sending is the best it can be, as it can be used in the prize stated below!
After you’ve sent us your screenshot, don’t be afraid to share it around! Upload it to any social media and add the #Architectxiles hashtag for all to see.
Some Extra Clarity
- You Can use admin powers if you wish!
- You’re allowed to use Ansel
- It’s up to you if you want to do just the exterior or just the interior, or both! We will just judge how close to the reference photo(s) you have. For example, the Eiffel Tower has an impressive exterior but doesn’t really have an interior. On the other hand, a fairly simple exterior structure might be much more interesting because of it’s interior setup/design.
- Your building does not need to be functional. We’re only judging looks.
All screenshots must be submitted by Tuesday, April 9nd by 11:50pm EST/5:50am CET. We will not accept any after this date. Winners will be announced on Thursday the 11th!
Grand Prize Winner:
A private 40 slot GPortal server for the platform of your choice including 6 months pre-paid. If you already have a server we will gift you the 6 months of paid slots. If you have a different server host, we can offer to transfer your DB to the new pre-paid GPortal server.

While playing a game double tap the Xbox button on your controller to capture a screenshot and pressing Y to save the screenshot. Or if you’re one of the rare few with Kinect plugged into your Xbox One, you can say “Xbox, take a screenshot” to take and save a screenshot.
After saving the screenshot. Press the Xbox button to suspend the game.
Go to the Upload app on your Xbox One and choose the screenshot you want to share from Manage Captures.
