- Anno 1800
The Anno 1800 Modding Contest
Hey Anno Community,
With great excitement we’ve followed the growth of the Anno 1800 hub on mod.io in particular, and the discussions about mods and modding in general that our August-Update created.
We’re very happy that both the mod creators in our community, as well as our players were so quickly on board with the mod browser we added together with the great team at mod.io.
Plenty of fantastic creations have been added since and we would love to see even more!
So, as a little incentive, we’re starting Anno 1800’s first ever modding contest!
Even better: You can win fantastic hardware prizes from MSI!
Let’s first give you a quick summary of the contest and its rules, however:
- The modding contest will run from today (October 23rd) until November 30th
- The theme that your mod will have to be at least partially related to is “the New World”.
Additionally, there are some restrictions for legal reasons, and we ask you to carefully read the official rules by following this link. You will need to accept these rules in order be eligible to win. In short:
- You will need to create a completely new mod to participate and can’t enter with an existing mod.
- Participants will have to live in Europe (see rules document for the full list of countries).
- Participants will need to be at least 16 years old.
What can I win?
As mentioned at the beginning, MSI has graciously sponsored the prizes for this modding contest.
In total, together with our friends at MSI, we’re awarding the 5 best mods each with a mouse and mousepad combo: The Clutch GM51 Lightweight Wireless Mouse and the Agility GD72 Gleam Edition Mousepad.
In case you’re teaming up with another modder (see participation rules below) and your mod wins, each of you will get the MSI prize bundle.
How do I participate?
Below we’ve listed the requirements for participating in the modding contest and to for you to eligible for a prize. Make sure to also check the full rules for the contest.
Create any type of mod for Anno 1800. The only limitation is that the mod has to be in some way related to the “New World” but in which way is up to you.
You can team up with up to 1 other person (i.e. you can form 2-person teams) to create your mod.
Within the time limit (until November 30th), send a us download link to the finished mod via email at email@example.com
Do not publish your mod (on Nexus, mod.io, GitHub, etc.) before the winners have been chosen (afterwards you’re of course free to upload it on any platform of your choice).
The winners will be chosen by a jury within the Anno team based on creativity, use of the theme and “usefulness” of the mod for players. We’re open for any and all creations: From ornamental to gameplay mods and from serious creations to funny or silly things.
Additionally, the winners will of course be featured on our channels upon conclusion of the contest.
We’re excitedly looking forward to what you’re coming up with and once again want to thank both MSI as well as our modding community for their support.
