NOT to be confused with Post your spacecraft! and Post your paintjob!
This is the topic where you can submit your spacecraft’s paintjob in a contest against other paintjobs from other contestants with 16 total submissions every tournament with 4 submissions that’ll be pitted against each other in each round. As such there are 5 rounds every tournament. Each round lasts three days long.
Users can submit only ONE submission of their choice per tournament. The submissions MUST include a full screenshot of your in-game screen featuring your intended design at the center or they will NOT be accepted.
To prevent paintjobs of different spacecraft families from entering the same round, paintjobs from only one family of spacecraft are allowed per tournament. The spacecraft family will be specified in future announcements.
Plagiarism will get you disqualified for the next 3 tournaments. Repeating this mistake will lead to a PERMANENT disqualification
If you identify a potentially plagiarized design, be sure to link both posts as spacecraft Originality is greatly appreciated.
Any forum user, EXCEPT the spacecraft designers can vote for their favorite paintjob among the submissions.
Civil and constructive discussion is allowed as well some silly jokes as long as they don’t form text chains. Threats, hate speeches, NSFW backstories, harassment, remorseless and repeated insults towards other users, will get you disqualified for the rest of the tournament but you can enter the next tournament. However, repeated offences will lead to exponentially longer disqualifications and on the 3rd major offence, will lead to a permanent disqualification.
Rules are subject to change and such changes will be announced. Feel free to express your thoughts about these rules in a civil and constructive manner.

If you REALLY want to have multiple submissions, please put the design that you are the most confident in first, followed by other designs. Designers, please think this through carefully, reconsideration of designs during a tournament is not permitted.
So think outside the box and go crazy and experiment with new looks and color schemes!
Backstories and reasonings are optional but extra effort is always appreciated!
And always, May the Forks be with you all!
