Description:

"Greetings! This is BLK PHNX otherwise known as the "Hip 'n' Happenin' Honsou!" We're live from Tuxorix Coast: After-market Starship Syndicate. We specialise in beautiful, upgradeable, template, technology services. And this is "Pimp My Ride" Elite Dangerous starship edition!!"

I was taking a look through the cosmetic starship upgrade options in Elite Dangerous and got some serious "Need for Speed Underground 2" vibes.

I was thinking about how to run a competition that everyone could participate in, which ruled out the cross-platform issues. I decided that a cosmetics competition whereby entries would be screenshots of your most "pimped out ride" emailed to eh.honsou@gmail.com or DM'd in Discord.

"So my friends, send me holo's of your most pimped out ride and I will award the flashiest, coolest and most pimpin' entries! See you soon at the Tusorix Coast: After-market Starship Syndicate!!"

Competition awards:

1st Place - IS-SR
2nd Place - IS-BR
3rd Place - IS-CR
ORA - Awarded for effort in screenshot composition. e.g. using a planet, star or other celestial body to emphasise your ship, rather than just a simple hangar shot.


Competition runtime starts on the first day at 00:00:01 UTC, and ends on the last day at 23:59:59 UTC.
