🎨 Iron Hideout Competition #5 | Theme: Forest | Competition Started! 🎨



Welcome. This is the 5th of Iron Hideout Competition, a friendly event to race with other hideout makers or have some fun during the league. It's made by the community, for the community. No entry costs required, just good ole fashioned fun! Build a hideout based on a specified theme, vote for your favorites and enjoy some nice prizes!


This is totally unofficial and hosted by PegasusRideR. Original competition is created by Pixxelkick and is previously hosted by FallMakesHideouts, Guggelhupf and Synopsis.





Competition will start on 5th June. Theme of this competition is Forest! This means your hideout can be anything but needs to be in a forest, or be a forest. There is one month of time to complete your hideouts, meaning submissions should be made until 5th July. Then voting will begin, which will take two weeks. Shortly after voting ends, winners will be announced here. After winners are announced, prizes will be given, which you can see below.

Categories:
Both categories will have seperate submissions, voting, winners and prizes.
■ Non-MTX: No MTX hideout bases or decorations are allowed. Meaning hideout bases and decorations %100 should be obtainable in game without spending any currency in the MTX shop. All decorations should come from favor spending(excluding game specific ones like crafting bench, heist locker, etc.).
■ MTX: All MTX hideout bases and decorations are allowed. Creative usage of MTXes are encouraged. All MTX used should be purchasable from the MTX store. Hideout bases, decorations and pets that are not available anymore for purchase(Like Entombed hideout, etc.) are not allowed. Also decorations from Apollyon mystery box are not allowed. Usage of a couple MTX decorations at least is also required. Just adding 1-2 MTX decorations to a Non-MTX hideout base won't count. Using an MTX hideout base will count.

Challenge trophies, old benches from before the master update, rhoa dinners or other exclusive non-MTX decorations cannot be used in both categories. Also hideout bases, decorations and pets that cannot be unlocked anymore by normal ways(Like Ritualist's hideout, etc.) are not allowed. These are to create equality amongst competitors.

Schedule:
► Competition starts: 5th June, 11:00pm GMT
► Submissions until: 5th July, 11:00pm GMT
► Voting starts: 6th July, 11:00pm GMT
► Voting ends: 20th July, 11:00pm GMT

Why Iron Hideout?
Name and idea are by Pixxelkick. The inspiration for this event is the show Iron Chef. Like the show, entries must follow a specified theme.






Prizes For Winners:

Delve Core supporter pack to winners of both Non-MTX and MTX categories!
► A video showcasing winning and runner-up hideouts of both categories will be made by me and will be shared on my Youtube channel. Video will be also posted on r/pathofexile and r/PathOfExile_Hideouts Reddits.


Prizes For Everyone:

► Brittleknee will do a showcase stream of all entries shortly after voting starts on Twitch. She will showcase and comment on every single entry! Here is the last competition's stream.
► I will be doing weekly videos of all entries submitted each week. I will be uploading these to my Youtube channel and will post on r/pathofexile and r/PathOfExile_Hideouts Reddits. Every hideout will be showcased for 25 seconds in these videos.
Week One Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7nkpSpuFxM
Week Two Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGhMAjoob_8






■ Your hideout must be your own work.
■ Hideouts submitted must be made after competition start(5th June).
■ Your hideout must be safe to showcase(Nothing against Terms of Service of GGG).
■ Hideouts must fit theme of the competition. This means your hideout can be anything but needs to be in a forest, or be a forest.
■ Multiple submissions are welcome! You can also submit hideouts in both Non-MTX and MTX categories. However posting the same hideout to both categories with minimal changes is not allowed.
■ Your submission needs to have enough content to showcase your hideout. A video is not a requirement but is a better way of showcasing it. For the competition, screenshots showing all parts of your hideout is enough.
■ Hideouts need to be uploaded to hideoutshowcase.com with the final hideout file of your work.
■ Using post template below is required. All required is posting your hideout to hideoutshowcase.com and linking it here, putting a small image is allowed, then a video link if you have one and lastly answering questions in the template message below.
■ Submissions breaking any of these rules will be disqualified.


Template message:

► Name of the hideout:
► Submitter name:
► Which category?: (Non-MTX or MTX)
► How your hideout fits the theme?:
► Hideoutshowcase link:
► Link to video if you have:
► Social media link(Optional)(One link to all your content):
► Do you want your entry to be shown on the showcase stream?: (Yes/No)


Feel free to go into as much detail as you want. It is very recommended that you upload a video to a video sharing site like Youtube, because it's much easier to understand a hideout with a video.






After submissions end and voting starts on 6th July, this post will change into a voting post with all the submissions and voting links of Non-MTX and MTX categories. Votings will be made on polltab.com.

Individuals voting are encouraged to please heavily weigh how much the submitted hideout sticks to and represents the competition theme. We also strongly encourage voters to checkout the submitters' videos of their hideouts, screenshots in hideoutshowcase links and not to base a vote on one single screenshot. We welcome artistic liberties and creative ideas to be taken on the thematic concept.

When voting ends in 20th July, you will be able to see the winners and runner-ups in the poll links. Even I won't be able to see the results until votings of each category end, we will all see the results at the same time. If there's a draw for a winner spot, there will be a new poll for deciding the winner amongst hideouts that were in the draw. This poll will take a week long. This is because prizes for winners can't be shared. If there'll be draws in lower ranks, they will share the same spot and no extra voting will be done for them. Shortly after our polls announce the winners, this post will change once again and announce the winners and prizes will be given.

Hi. Decorations from current Apollyon mystery box are not allowed because they can't be directly purchased from Microtransaction site.

How wonderful!

Question: Are items gained from leagues (Portals/Hideouts/Pets/Etc.) allowed since they weren't paid for? Or are they not allowed because technically not everyone had access to them?

Yes, league specific awards are not allowed because they are not accessible at the moment. Everything used in Non-MTX category should be accessible in game and every MTX used in MTX category should be obtainable from the Microtransactions store. This is to create equality amongst competitors. You can use any portal you like in showcase video and screenshots though as that's only for showcase means.

Hey thanks for hosting these events, this will be my first entry every for one of these contests.

► Name of the hideout: Ruined Cathedral

► Submitter name: CAHelix

► Which category?: MTX (Uses Infinite Abyss, Atlas Table and Fireplace MTX)

► How your hideout fits the theme?: It's mostly a broken cathedral with make shift living spaces, however the entire thing sits within a overgrown forrest, I hope that qualifies. FWIW 15% of the total objects are trees, even if you don't see them most of the time.

► Hideoutshowcase link: https://hideoutshowcase.com/hideout/show/3298/title/Ruined%20Cathedral

► Link to video if you have: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcAR2dVrfKc

► Do you want your entry to be shown on the showcase stream?: Yes

I mostly finished this hideout a while ago but have been tweaking it constantly until now, there is more I would like to do but the damn object limit prevents it.

Hope you like it. Thanks again. :)

EDIT: Uploaded a better video, the first one was terrible.

Thanks for putting this together. I enjoyed the challenge of transforming a small, indoor hideout into a wandering path through a cold, dark forest.
