Star Chart Dojo Showcase - Summer 2021 [Winners Announced]


Recommended Posts

1. FeaturedDojo_1080p.jpg

What Are Showcased Dojos?

Every month, a new set of Dojos appears on the Star Chart for all Tenno to visit! The Warframe team selects these Dojos based on designs shared in this quarterly event. Share your Dojo with us and it could be next to receive a place of honor on the Star Chart!

This round introduces two distinct submission categories: Star Chart Ascendant and Star Chart All Stars. Read on for more details!

Guest Judge, OGKuvaSage joins us to select this round of Star Chart Dojos. OGKuvaSage is an Xbox Tenno who’s especially active in the Dojo community. His designs have been showcased on the Star Chart with his Clan, CantGetRight!

Star Chart Ascendant Category

The original category, based on the Featured Dojo Contest of the past three years. In this category, Dojos that have never been showcased on the Star Chart are given priority.

There will be three winners selected per Clan tier per platform

  • PC: Ghost, Shadow, Storm, Mountain, Moon x 3
  • PS: Ghost, Shadow, Storm, Mountain, Moon x 3
  • XB: Ghost, Shadow, Storm, Mountain, Moon x 3
  • Switch: Ghost, Shadow, Storm, Mountain, Moon x 3

Star Chart All Stars Category

Clan Tier does not apply to this category. All Dojos compete based on designs alone. By submitting a Dojo that has been on the Star Chart in the past, your submission is automatically included in both the Star Chart Ascendant category and the Star Chart All Stars category.

There will be one winner per platform:

  • PC: Any Clan Tier
  • PS: Any Clan Tier
  • XB: Any Clan Tier
  • Switch: Any Clan Tier

Each Clan can only win in the Star Chart All Stars category one time, but there’s no limit to the number of times Clans can win in the Star Chart Ascendant category. Feel free to submit to future rounds!

Rules for Dojos Selected for the Star Chart

Given the number of players who will visit, we have a different standard for content in Dojos showcased on the Star Chart than we do for Dojos that aren't open to everyone. We may ask selected Clans to make small changes to their Dojos for the time they are featured based on the following:

  • Nothing vulgar or offensive can be included in Dojos while they are featured on the Star Chart.
  • Star Chart Ascendants cannot change their Clan Tier until after their Clan Dojo has been featured on the Star Chart.
    • This rule does not apply to Star Chart All Stars, because Clan Tier does not affect their selection process.
  • Clans who disregard these rules while their Dojo is on the Star Chart will have their Dojos removed from the Star Chart. If deemed necessary, increased disciplinary action will also be taken.

This round of Dojos will occupy the Star Chart for the months of September, October, and November 2021.

  • Star Chart Ascendant Dojos will be showcased for one month each.
  • The Star Chart All Star of each platform will be showcased for all three months.

How We Select Dojos

Phase 1: After submissions close, a group of Warframe Community Team members and the round’s Guest Judge will take one week to review all submissions. This process includes:

  1. Organizing all submissions by contest category, Clan Tier, and platform. Star Chart Ascendant submissions only compete with Dojos that share their Clan Tier and platform. Repeat submissions are automatically included in the Star Chart All Stars category, where submissions only compete with Dojos that share their platform but Clan Tiers are not considered.
  2. Confirming submissions obeyed the rules listed above.

Phase 2: Once preparations are complete, the selection process begins! We begin by narrowing down submissions to top submissions. The team looks for two traits above all in this process: creativity and quality.

  • Creativity: We love unique designs! Some examples of rooms that blew us away in the past are fully stocked libraries, train stations, arcades, and pirate ships. Whether your decorating style focuses on small details or big structures, we appreciate the creativity you put into your work.
  • Quality: Only filling a room with decorations will not secure your victory when there’s stiff competition! Be thoughtful about how you choose to place decorations. The best Dojos we’ve seen have conveyed stories and themes. Make the decorations your own!

Phase 3: Community Team members and the Guest Judge will closely review and compare top submissions a second time to select those that will be featured on the Star Chart. During this stage of the process, additional factors are considered:

  • The number of times the Dojo has been showcased on the Star Chart. Dojos that have never been showcased are given priority in the Star Chart Ascendant category. Dojos that have been selected as Star Chart All Stars in the past are not eligible to be selected for that category again.
  • In the Star Chart Ascendant category, if a higher Clan tier category (Mountain or Moon) has only received repeat submissions, we consider giving a larger tier Clan’s slot to a smaller Clan (Ghost, Shadow, or Storm). We do this to account for the difference in the number of submissions we receive in smaller tier categories compared to larger tier categories. From 2018 - 2020, we received 367 larger tier submissions compared to 1,685 smaller tier submissions.

Large structures are impressive, but keep in mind that small details set winning submissions apart from top submissions. Focus on creating an immersive atmosphere with details we can’t ignore. Make your Dojo a testament to your unique Clan!

Seeking inspiration? Here’s advice from architects whose Dojos have been showcased on the Star Chart!

Welcome to the Black Shark! A condemned Grineer ship from hundreds of years ago recently been recovered by the Steel Meridian. Fly this marvelous barley stable Pirate ship. Has all semi functional functions a real science fiction ship must have, like mess hall and cooling systems. Every room keeps the overall theme and brings adventure to explore and find many Easter eggs and fun. Climb thru a vent maze, explore below deck where the old Kuva Lich captain is buried. Find treasure, food, drones, and hazards all over! I beg you pictures do not do it justice and you should see it in person, you will not be disappointed! Glory to the Queens!

An object of power has transformed the corridor into a twisting spiral.

An office room that has been distorted by the object of power. Now it is like another dimension where time does not flow correctly.



Slide 42 - "Temple"
One of the slide dimension of the slide projector, where the not-mother lived. Fortunately, she is not staying in this dimension for now, so it is safe for agents to visit. :D

It is a network of cave under the oldest house where you can find the nail that connect the oldest house and the astral plane. 



The Board
They are a mysterious creature in the shape of a black pyramid.

Clan Name: - Black Paper -

Clan Tier: Ghost Clan

Clan Platform: PC

Clan Role: Founding Warlord

Note: The dojo is easily explorable, it's not a hallway simulator with oversized (aka tables made for giants) obstacles, it isn't a grid of 10x10 large rooms with half of them empty, it's not a mess of elevators and warps all over the place. It's a simple square for the most part, functionality is key, decorations add imersion, not clutter.
This is not a dojo made from just placing random rooms together and adding random content to it, each room tells a story of the clan as a whole (like certain updates, certain events) and rooms often lead somewhere or add imersion, this is possible because the dojo was made from the start to have this shape and this purpose, alot of planing was done.

Note 2: Rooms kept the theme, but are updated on a regular basis and may not look identical to the screenshots, a visit is recomended, since dojo is efficiently made from the ground up, it doesn't take long to explore everything.

Note 3: Image limit not sufficient to show all the rooms with sufficient detail.

Changes include
 - nearly all rooms updated (no overhauls, just more decorations added or decoration made in a more efficient manner),
 - added the bash room in a hidden place (see if you can find the entrance)

Also, dojo not visited by Rebbeca&Megan In previous contest



Notable rooms: (9 images only, totaling 10 in the topic)

Any words on fixing bugged transporters? It's a bit off-putting having transporters that send you outside the dojo and can't be removed and could potentially result in people leaving a dojo before exploring everything.

Ah yeah, would be nice for a fix. I have a teleporter that I can’t remove and it just leaves you in a black nothingness.

Good changes to the submissions. It should make these threads more readable. Some more chances for features is a nice change as well, especially for those who have been involved for a while now. good stuff.

good luck everyone.

Star Chart All Stars Category

Clan Tier does not apply to this category. All Dojos compete based on designs alone. By submitting a Dojo that has been on the Star Chart in the past, your submission is automatically included in both the Star Chart Ascendant category and the Star Chart All Stars category.

Wait, does that mean I don't need to submit my entry for this contest if my Dojo was featured in the past?
