[Dev Journal] Rift: Introducing the 'Joy of Dimensions' Contest

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,632MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Dimensions are Trion Worlds' way of giving Rift players their own little piece of Telara and with the amazing ability to decorate that space nearly limitlessly. To give players a chance to show off their architectural skills, the team is introducing the "Joy of Dimensions" contest to our readers first! Read the details, then get designing!

Dimensions have proven to be a feature that can ignite the creativity of the Ascended and is enticing to new and returning players alike.  But, simply building it isn’t enough!  We need a program to shine a spotlight on the feature in a fun and creative way that gets players involved and puts their passion in front of their friends and fellow players.  We need to show them – The Joy of Dimensions.

    I can't wait to see what people come up with.  If it looks enticing enough, I will get the game.

    I used to watch those Bob Ross shows - for the pure relaxation and meditative effects that show had on me.

    Now we're gonna pick up some of that burn sienna, and right there lives a happy little rock.... epic!

    I love me some Bob Ross. He makes everything better.

    The other day when I told someone I was not on Twitter or Facebook but could still take part in an event they were running by email. They thought I might be a troll winding them up.

    It seems these days that MMO marketing departments only want competitions that involve social media and if you are not part of that forget it.

    Cool this might make me give Rift another go, housing is something a lot of mmo's lack in!

    It would be cool if SoE ran a similar contest for EQ2 and then have the top 5 of each compete against each other.
  • Deathstrike2Deathstrike2 Wellston, OHPosts: 1,801Member

    OMG, that picture immediately made me smile!  Best thing I've seen on these boards in years.  I have no idea what dimensions is all about, but the picture grabbed my attention immediately.

    Good Luck to all who compete against me. My dimension may not be the prettiest but I hope I get points for it being the "funnest".

     

     

    I healed Mistwraith and all I got was this stupid tee-shirt!

    I jumped into my first dimension today.  It was a kind of house on a lake.  Very elaborately decorated.  The coolest part was this path that led up and up and up into the sky to this platform waaaaay above the world.  In the floor there is a hole, and I jumped down into the hole and went down this long slide and landed in a pool.  It was great!
  • ScotScot UKPosts: 5,769Member Uncommon
    This dimension thing sounds quite advanced. I presume there are no monsters to fight, but you create you own house environment or what?

    Seems like I may have to go grind some plat to work on my shabby-ish dimension!

    Indeed you fight no monsters in your dimension, you just build :) And you get total freedom in how to build. Locations are based on in-game spots and not the whole world is available, but cool parts of it are. :)

    Rift will now have happy little trees.  :)

    IMO, Rift is setting a new standard in housing for mmos. They provide the environments, and you do the rest. Pure win!
  • SamhaelSamhael Huntsville, ALPosts: 697Member Uncommon
    While people gush on about Rift's dimensions, I still don't "get" them. Until/unless they provide some functionality, I'll pass on them.  But even if I understood the interest, I'd skip the contest -- it shouldn't require Facebook.

     I have a friend who won't use facebook.

     

    I asked him how many forums is he registered to? 

     

  • ScotScot UKPosts: 5,769Member Uncommon

    I am on a few forums, I just regard social media as obsessive, vain, pointless commentary and mindless drivel. With people talking about their navels, setting up appreciation pages for murderers and following trends like reeds in a wind. Not saying you can’t find anything worthwhile on it, you just have to try too hard for my liking. Anyway back to the dimensions, or I won’t stop ranting. :)

    It does sound a great idea, and takes the housing concept to a whole new level. I take it you can visit each others dimensions, but not have a communal dimension as it were?

  • KniknaxKniknax LeicesterPosts: 567Member Uncommon
    Do you need Stormlegion of use these dimensions, or can vanilla rift owners use them to?
