UPDATE: The contest has been extended! With the release of new terrain types, including snow, ice, and magma, we’ve extended the contest an additional week. Now you can use these features, and make a wider variety of locations. Check the blog post for deadlines, and how to enter!

To celebrate the launch of Smooth Terrain, ROBLOX’s all new way to build beautiful in-game environment’s, we’re launching a contest for the entire ROBLOX community.

The ROBLOXworld Smooth Terrain Contest is a way for you to show off your talent, and earn great prizes in the process!

So how does it all work? Let’s break it down.

How to Enter

  • Recreate a real-world place using ROBLOX’s new Smooth Terrain Tools.
    1. Good Example: Machu Pichu, the Incan citadel in the Andes Mountains– really anywhere that appears on Earth’s map
    2. Bad Example: Middle Earth, which while beautiful, is unfortunately fictional.
    3. Your entry can use anything and everything ROBLOX studio has to offer — parts, particle effects, skyboxes — but Smooth Terrain is the star of the show.
  • Take a screenshot (or two) of your place, looking as nice and as distinctive as possible (we should be able to tell what/where it is).
