Nordlicht 2020 cancelled - "Best of Nordlicht" demoshow stream and compo announcement

category: general [glöplog]
 
Well, in the end it was sadly inevitable: Your train journey with Nordlicht Railways 2020 has been cancelled. No tickets were sold, so no refunds will be given.

While Nordlicht does not fall into the category of a "large event" with 1000+ visitors (currently forbidden in Germany), the safety restrictions imposed by local authorities for small events in Bremen are simply incompatible with a demoparty: max. 50 visitors, mandatory face masks, 1.5 meters distance at all times, no food or BBQ allowed at all, the list goes on .. it simply will not work. The restrictions will likely be in force until the end of year at minimum, so we decided to finally pull the plug .. or emergency halt our train, whichever you prefer.

However, to make up for this we will hold a cozy "Best of Nordlicht" online stream event, to revisit some of your greatest compo submissions from the past 8 years. You'll also be able to participate in a one-off special online competition, and win tickets for the Nordlicht 10th Anniversary megaparty in the following year!

The date and time for the online stream event, as well as the online compo details will be announced here shortly!

Thanks folks, please stay healthy! <3

at least the railways theme and cancelling things seems befitting :P
Classic Deutsche Bahn...

Does that mean I get 50% of the ticket price back?
Saga, 50% of zero paid is still zero ;D

Good one Sir! I could just send the 3D Lichthaus model I made some years ago to Wurstgetrank, I guess. It is fairly complete. Actually I've been wanting to ask him about that since the first SofaWorld iteration, some more tweaking would need to be done probably. We'll see .. ;)

Well, in that case, please proceed. I would gladly and cheerfully download and start up v0.76 to actually join my first Nordlicht party ever, even if not for real (as planned for this year), then at least virtually.

Anyway, stay safe & healthy, Nordlicht crew <3

Another party destroyed by the global "cow-id" scam.
