[Not just the] Snow Animal Build Contest! Yay!

Jack, Avariel and Unit #6 look at the letter with one word written on it…

“I… think… it… is… time…” rumbled Unit #6 “But… we… must… judge… on… SQUEE…”.

The dark unicorn pondered “I think Frolicality is important too”.

Jack waved his stick! “Goatlyness!”.


Its time to anounce the animal for the New-Babbage winter snow animal build contest for this wonderful year 188x! Yay!


And this years animal is… GOATS!


Prizes awarded based on Goatlyness, Frolicality and SQUEE!


1st: L$1000

2nd: L$500

3rd: L$250

Runner up / Notable mention: L$100


I will sync the closing date with the other snowpeople competitions as they are announced.

Prim count will be 15 prims or less as with the other snowpeople competitions, old style prims or mesh are good, sculpties less so as we are generally trying to move away from sculpts.

    We’re doing goats?


    Ok, how long is it going to be before someone does a snow version of “old Goat Legs?”

    • Garnet Psaltery Garnet Psaltery November 21, 2015

      I did one last year, so I’ll try something else this time :o)

    • Jimmy Branagh Jimmy Branagh November 21, 2015

      Mornington done, two years back.  :)

    • Nyanka Jinx Nyanka Jinx November 22, 2015

      Imagine if someone did the inverse of that. A goat with human legs…

      Er… I might be overthinking this.

    Don’t forget.. you can sponsor a build by declaring the category and the prize right here, the prize can be silly or serious. Catch is, you have to judge it too!

    Just be glad that this year I’m not sponsoring the exploding animals category.

    • Avariel Falcon Avariel Falcon November 24, 2015

      Oh no! We need a replacement sponsor for the exploding snowpeople contest!

      This category has now been judged.

      First prize goes to Linus Mistwallow for his fun and clever Basket of Kittens.  Second prize goes to Kimika Ying for her fiendish Sculpted Ballgown, which genuinely made me laugh out loud.  Congratulations and thanks to both of them – their prizes have been sent :o)

      Since there were no other entries, there are no other prizes awarded.  The remaining prize money will be donated to the New Babbage Orphanage.

      • Azura Loring Azura Loring January 5, 2016

        Congrats Winners, including the New Babbage Orphanage! Yay!

    Can you build snowmen for more than one category?

    I have a few ideas in mind…

    – Edward Hyde

    • Avariel Falcon Avariel Falcon November 27, 2015

      Yes, people have in the past. *nods*

      You can also try to mash as many categories into one for extra fun!

  9. Azura Loring Azura Loring November 27, 2015

    Category:  The Horror in the Snow

    What if the universe were different?  What if all things were not as they seem?

    What if our New Babbage leaders – Mr. Tenk, Vic Mornington, Mr. Underby, Ed
    Pearse and The Emperor (Ret.) were all in actuality Lovecraftian Old
    Ones?  The horror!  What would they look like? Arachnoid? Cephalopod?  Octopoid? 
    Amorphous blobs of pre-antidiluvian mush? 

    Here’s your chance to blend Mythos with snowy wonders.  It’s your hallucination.  You build it.

    Santa hats and dangly Christmas ornaments are permissible.

    15 prims max.


    1st:  L1000

    2nd:  L500

    3rd:  L250

    4th:   L100 and a firm, manly handshake

    Use of any sculpts will reverse the prize, i.e.  you pay me.

      And I thought those blokes were weird as it is.

      “It’s your hallucination.  You build it.”

      Defintely today’s quote of the day.

    Catergory: Snow Forts!

    The urchins need a range of snow forts to use in the forthcoming snowball fights. There would need to be room for one or two urchins to stand inside, and the front would have to offer some protection from the usual snowballs.

    Naturally, Clockhaven Square is a bit small to have lots of thses full size, so lets have smaller models there, say 0.5m base, but the full versions can be as large as you like (smaller ones may be better for use…). 

    Mesh or prim, 10prim land impact when sized 2m * 3m, and using the NB Snow texture.

    1st: L1,000

    2nd: L500

    3rd: L250

    Would hope all entrys would be either gifted to the City or for sale to citizens.
