I know the title is like waa? But thats what the description is for. I am starting a contest that is nothing like we have ever done before. It's who can make the best replicate screen shot of a video game. Like for example, find a poster of a game online and try to replicate it in Alice. Just post the screen shots side by side and I will decide on April 13 who one. Entries end April 8th

Rules!

1 entry per person
Billboards cant be the picture
Public vote and my vote ends April 18
We will have The qualifiers, then the Finals....then the winner! The winner will get something.

What should it be?

Example...

This sounds like an interesting contest. But i have one question, how do you get a screen shot from alice? i havent figured that out yet?

You can take it with the Screenshot button in the top right corner of the game window. Or if your using windows, press the print screen button then crop t to whatever size you want/name it to whatever you want/works best with FPS alice games.

I know you participated in my contest, and as payback, you may expect me to participate, but I don't like video games, so I won't be participating. Sorry. Perhaps if you do an animation contest, I will enter.

Also, I am not sure how you plan on choosing the winner, but if it will be a public vote, I will participate.

Thanks! the only thing that stinks about this is in the he builder I couldn't make a child looking figure, which would have helped a lot haha.

Thats the challenge! Its all about the creativity!

sfunk
03-25-2011, 09:34 PM
Yes! I tried using the lighting to make the top person's face look younger to match the original picture, it worked somewhat but oh well :D i'm just glad i was able to finish it and get in it on time, since I rarely get too much time to spend on alice.

Can I like a minecraft screenshot look-a-like. Gaurantee mine would look the most like the game:p. I mean it is so hard to texture squares. Ok I won't do that but it will be something good.

I knew someone would ask about that. I would generally like it to be the cover....but.....If its not, it has to be complicated. So you can do others but game covers would be the coolest. Btw...Whoever does the Halo 3 cover the best gets an extra point. Just because I like Halo!

EDIT: Rules are changed....2 entries are now aloud!!!

Some interesting points:

The eyebrows are 3d text's with the text "|"
The floor and wall are solar panel objects
Getting the perspective was somewhat difficult to do.
The eyes are are series of tilted parabola shapes intersecting with the sphere.
The red and blue things around the logo are two "shell" shapes intersecting.


I'll make it nicer if the competition gets any more fierce and/or if I have extra time.

Wow. Good job! This is very good, I love that game too! So, just to be picky, you forgot the E rating at the bottom left and the Nintendo Logo, and the gamecube...but this is going to be hard to beat!!!

reuben2011
03-27-2011, 08:00 PM
I didn't feel like doing the extra logos. I figured they weren't an original part of the cover design. Also, I just felt too lazy to do it. XD

The world has to be made in Alice, right?

Technically you could just import a picture of the cover as a billboard and that would be your "replication."

They'd be identical, and barely any effort is required. ;)



And to reuben, that is AWESOME. High quality work right there, bud. Especially considering the amount of fine-tuning you must've done with the eyes and everything.

Thanks! ^_^ Also, I think we should have a "no importing billboards" rule.

Yes I am trying to get posts. But I am not joking! Go ahead and post the poll on the AODb Community Forums! I don't care, and I wasn't joking when I posted that! You can post the poll in "The Lounge", but just make sure you link to this thread! That is the only thing I ask! Of course, if you don't want to use the AODb Community Fourms, that is fune with me, but I thought it was a pretty good idea. (Besides, it would help promote the AODb Community Forums, and for the matter, the AODb itself!)
