SHOWCASE STREAM RECAP VIDEO | Amazing New Hideout Designs with Subtractem

We have received so many wonderful submissions that for the first time ever we have a three-way tie for 3rd place! Excellent work everyone, there have been so many beautiful new hideouts created by all of you.

This time and going forward we have decided against posting point results since they only really serve a purpose for the judges and are not a true reflection of all the effort, time, skill and attention that is necessary to create an entry. One cannot assign a number to beauty, it is always in the eye of the beholder. Thank you all for participating, you make this event worthwhile!

Welcome to the Iron Hideout competition 10, a Lake of Kalandra league hideout community event. Build a hideout based on a chosen theme and compete for prizes and admiration of your peers!

Hope everyone has a lot of fun and happy building!





The theme of this competition is OPPOSITES and we're looking forward to seeing some amazing submissions featuring this concept. Opposites mean opposing themes, ideas, backgrounds, environments...they can be diametrically different or conflicting in nature and they can be more subdued, covert, internal. Try not to limit yourselves by obvious solutions - try to dig deeper.

SUBMISSIONS START | September 26th 20:00 CEST
SUBMISSIONS END | October 23rd 20:00 CEST

After the submission period has concluded we will announce the date for the showcase stream and results.





Before creating a submission please carefully read the rules, there have been changes made since the last competition.


TWO SUBMISSION LIMIT | Contestants are allowed to submit a maximum of two hideouts and they should fit the theme of this competition as closely as possible.
NO MTX | No MTX bases or decorations are allowed (including stashes, challenge hideout bases and trophies or decorations unlocked with MTX bases which have a limited number of placed objects). Basically, all decorations placed must be unlimited use plus default stashes, map device, masters, lockers and benches.
HIDEOUT SHOWCASE | Hideouts need to be uploaded to Hideout Showcase with your Path of Exile forum nickname mentioned in Description (this is to confirm the hideout is your own work).
HIDEOUTS HAVE TO BE YOUR OWN WORK | They also must be safe to showcase (nothing breaking GGG Terms of Service).
NO PREVIOUS COMPETITION ENTRIES ALLOWED | Hideouts submitted to either Official Hideout competitions by GGG or previous Iron Hideout competitions are not eligible.
PLACE ALL THE MASTERS BEFORE SUBMITTING | For the purpose of creating weekly showcase videos please make sure you've placed all the masters (feel free to hide them behind decorations) otherwise they might appear in random locations when importing.
USE THE POST TEMPLATE | When making your post please copy/paste and fill out the template (feel free to format it to your preference).

Submissions breaking any of these rules will be disqualified.


POST TEMPLATE
✦ HIDEOUT TITLE |
✦ SUBMITTER NAME |
✦ HOW DOES YOUR HIDEOUT FIT THE THEME? |
✦ HIDEOUT SHOWCASE LINK |
✦ VIDEO (Optional) |
✦ YOUR CONTENT LINK (Optional) |
✦ SHOULD THIS ENTRY BE INCLUDED IN THE SHOWCASE STREAM (Yes/No) |

You're welcome to add screenshots to your post (if you want to add many please hide some with a spoiler for ease of reading).





Starting with this competition and onwards the prizes will be in the form of digital pre-paid gift cards with specified amount which can be used to make purchases online including in the official Path of Exile store for purchase of supporter packs and points.


1st PLACE WINNER
✦ 30$ reward in form of a digital pre-paid gift card
✦ Winning hideout pinned on the Hideout Showcase website
✦ "Iron Chief" role on Path of Exile Hideouts discord server

2nd PLACE WINNER
✦ 20$ reward in form of a digital pre-paid gift card

3rd PLACE WINNER
✦ 10$ reward in form of a digital pre-paid gift card

Rewards are courtesy of Hideout Showcase!





Winners of the competition are decided through jury voting. The jury consists of renowned hideout builders who have been heavily featured by GGG and have won or ranked in the Official Hideout or Iron Hideout competitions.

The judges vote based on the general hideout impression, adherence to the chosen theme, clever or innovative building techniques and overall skill. They all cast their votes blindly, without knowing how others have voted. The votes are then tallied by the organizer and the winners announced.


We do not use poll voting because it is easily manipulated/cheated and even when that's not the case such a system would ensure the contestant with the largest community behind them wins, which would be unfair and impossible to sort through. We feel that a jury of skilled and respected peers is a much better option.





Each week the collection of submissions for that week will be recorded by importing hideout files and uploaded in a showcase video. Because of this you do not have to make your own videos unless you wish to do so. The weekly compilations will be linked here.

WEEK 1-2 ENTRIES | Entries Video
WEEK 3 ENTRIES | Entries Video
WEEK 4 ENTRIES | Entries Video

(If there are very few entries for any given week they might get merged into next week's compilation.)

All weekly videos including the winners video will be posted on r/pathofexile subreddit and shared on hideout discords.





Subtractem will be joining us this competition with positive energy and a showcase stream of all the entries. Stream date will be set after the submissions have been concluded and before the results are known.

SHOWCASE STREAM TIME AND DATE | Monday October 31st
(starting time at 12:00 EDT/ 17:00 CET/ 16:00 UTC)

✦ HIDEOUT TITLE | Fortified mansion
✦ SUBMITTER NAME | moonretealoud
✦ HOW DOES YOUR HIDEOUT FIT THE THEME? | In the opposition between the living and the undead, forces are usually not equal. But ingenuity is what helps to equalize forces. Why fight a horde of the undead if you can force it to walk along a corridor of the most dangerous traps and barricades? But you don't think that this will hold back the Rare Monster, isn't it?

✦ HIDEOUT TITLE | InOrganic
✦ SUBMITTER NAME | G4nzo
✦ HOW DOES YOUR HIDEOUT FIT THE THEME? | Two of my favorite themes: alien and machines. You can see the clear contrast in color, theme, objects used but both aspects join together to create a big wurm monster.

I tried to showcase the theme with stark contrast on the lower and middle parts that combines to a new mixed use on the highest elevation. Here is a list of the opposites used:
Substance (Organic - Inorganic)
Color (turquoise - orange)
Lighting (bright/white - dark/black)
Patterns (curves/circles/spirals - straight lines/crosses/rectangles)
Entropy (chaotic - orderly)
Unintentional (eater of worlds - searing exarch)

With the amount of different opposition effects the two sides build a glaring contrast. The big wurm creature at the top has parts of both sides.

Another big part were the use of stacked objects. I recently discovered the joy of stacking objects in a pattern by rotating the same object with "R" onto themselves and creating unique patterns. Especially for the organic side I used many of those discoveries.

Luckily I managed to avoid flickering due to too many lights placed but be warned! Only one more light source and the flickering will start.
Speaking of light sources, stacking light sources can have interesting effects which I also made use of in this hideout.

Some problems I encountered while working on this hideout:
-avoiding flickering on the red side with the summong circle ground
-making nice transitions on the edges to pitch black blocking volumes
-hiding the railings
-coming up with two cool map device parts and their portal indicators
-aligning the kitava horns to somewhat make the form of a wurm
-the lower jaw of the wurm

This was quite fun, a certified G4nzo classic!
By the way, I stole the grid ground idea at the factory part from Keld as I said I would. No shame here.
Might do a second entry! Hope this wall of text didn't crit...

✦ HIDEOUT TITLE | Hideaway Glade
✦ SUBMITTER NAME | Kamoss
✦ HOW DOES YOUR HIDEOUT FIT THE THEME? | It showcases the opposite effects of more natural magic vs when exiles get involved. Trying to control and tame magic leads to its corruption, vs the open and welcoming glade where magic is left to grow.

Greetings Exile! So you have journeyed with your caravan to this hidden alcove of magic? You have heard the tales of the great magic that resides here? Beware, those that came before you attempted to control the magic here and corrupted it! They built shrines and monuments praising their wielders of the magic, forced order into the wild magic, and tainted the very ground with the blood of sacrifices. Again, beware of their path that leads only to ruin. Seek to protect its opposition, the freedom of magic to live and grow on its own. Visit and feel the bark of the magic tree, deep within its protective cave. Feel its freedom and potential, and then leave this place!

Submission for IRON HIDEOUT COMPETITION 10: Opposites. Freedom of magic vs the corruption of the Exiles.

Thought process behind this design
Heaven vs Hell, Good vs Evil, Man vs Beast, Heroes vs Villains, Angels vs Demons, are all eternal clashes that in their core depict the struggle of applying order within chaos. In this hideout I tried to depict each side based on how the other sees them: Order as oppressive and self-righteous & Chaos as destructive and nightmarish. The entire work is based around the contrast of red and green. Within the order side, the tones of red and green are both compliments to the righteous gold that illuminates the statues. Within the chaos side, red and black have completely taken over, lurking and enraged. At the same time, within each side, a little bit of the other still exists.

I wanted to approach to the theme of the competition from the different direction. Therefore I've imagined an opposite sides of the vertical world and the first thing that came to my mind was a mountain. With its bright breathtaking peak and its dark mysterious grotto deep within its bowels.
In search for an inspiration Arreat summit was the one that stormed my mind immediately and when I found a perfect base for the project adding a room resembling Frozen River was a reasonable choice. Creating an opposite to the peek was a lot of fun when I had to switch from comfortable white and blue into dark brown colours and groomy atmosphere. I hope you will enjoy this work as well.
