as I said today, the whole day Ju and I spent for reviewing 24 CCC submissions for you (20 players).
That is an incredible amount of players for that kind of a contest!!
We can’t stress out enough what awesome stuff you built but also how difficult it was for us to judge winners! Overall all of you are winners but well, a contest is a contest, right?!
Last but not least, because we got so many players participating and saw how much time you spent for it and how really really difficult it was for us to decide the 1-3 ranks we decided to split the prizes per category! That means we have Rank 1-3 for the Space Trader Station and Rank 1-3 for the Space Alien Station — inclusive the rewards of course!
As I said, even if some submitted two blueprints per category they are not able to win for both categories
Additionally we upped the Prize for all other submissions for Rank 4+ by giving you also a Penthouse for the HWS 8.X season!
So let’s get started!
Please keep in mind that neither the spare words nor the few images can show all details and criteria we had to judge the winner. If you are interested this is just a snippet to get the idea:

Space Trading Station
This Space Trading Station has not only a lot of creative approaches & designs but we really like the diversity and infrastructure to make happy Customers.
You can either spent a lot of time in there to enjoy the space view, use all the services or make great trades on a lot of places.
Make sure to check it out in HWS 8.X to see all the goodies waiting for you!
2nd Prize goes to @Slainalot: Hawking
This Station has catched our attention by it’s clean shape, clear infrastructure inside & outside and organized layout choices. The idea to utilize the full potential of a Trading Station with a Cargo Bay (you all will like in the next season)
3rd Prize goes to @Dermerzel: Sanctuary
A very stylish but still unique and very nice Space Station. The colors are used very good, the details for the docks and the hidden secrets you will find in the station will make a trip worth for sure!
Space Alien Station
1st Prize goes to @Paxxo1985: The Prism
First things first: this Alien Station can’t be raided alone. You need a good team and good ships to start your adventure inside. Not much easier you have to solve puzzles and sections full of Aliens to collect a great loot at the end. The shape, the colors, the difficulty and overall composition is what makes this Alien Station a great addition in the next season.
Not only the shape looks dangerous but the turrets and the challenges inside will probably cost you not only one death. We liked the progression throughout the stages, the high risk = high reward approach and looking who might be able to “finish” this POI!
This Alien Station took the “Story” approach on a next level and fits nicely in our sub intention to have “Singleplayer / COOP” also in Multiplayer. We liked the way how the Station difficulty and design progresses further into the ship.
As I said, the decision was very hard and while Ju is currently working on all submissions again to make them “ready” and fix some things some missed, we liked really all submissions!
Hence, you will find all of the submissions around the universe in the next season
Note: The 1-3 rank winners should contact me please to discuss custom requests or wishes regarding the prizes, if desired.
Note: I decided to include ALL submissions to the universe. That means all creators get the “Thank You” package, you can find here again.
