The purpose of the Ryzom Coding Contest was to use the new Ryzom API to develop the best application for Ryzom. After 3 months of hard work, here are the results of the Ryzom Coding Contest.

We received a large number of submissions, so we've taken plenty of time to test and deliberate before deciding.

These applications were made for you, players, and so we invite you to try them: All projects can be found at this address.


  • 1st place: Nenita. He won EUR 3 000 (USD 4 200) by creating the the fully customizable 'Banner Maker' and 'Maps' application which allows you to locate members of your guild, their mektoubs, or create static maps to plan trips. Furthermore, he had a hand in the creation of many tools that have allowed other projects to emerge. For all of his work that we have designated him the winner of this contest.
