Midnight of July 31st.

Or if you want to be a stickler and pick me apart for minutiae:

July 31, 2010 11:59.59 PM is the last second entries will be accepted.

bjia56 07-27-2010 09:34 PM

Can I be a stickler and ask for the preferred time zone? ;)

x2495iiii 07-28-2010 07:03 AM

My time zone's GMT -5 (East coast US), but I try to take time zones into account when dealing with at-the-deadline submissions.

bjia56 07-28-2010 07:50 PM

Oh ok then.

Here is my entry. It may be a litle bug but please forgive me. It was the only way to make a good pic with what I had. Alice didnt want to work for me and I couldn't find any trees.
But I tbink this is good. It could really set the emotion of a game if I spent another hour making tree models and ading them in. Not to mention fixing the crane.
Ok, sorry but just looked at the preview and it doesn't fit I will leave it there but will put the correct image at wikishare.

King Gamer(gorit) 07-31-2010 04:15 PM

Tell me the truth jedi. I wont know until I get back from camping next thursday if you don't.

jediaction 07-31-2010 05:05 PM

what, about your picture?

King Gamer(gorit) 07-31-2010 05:11 PM

You said um. You sounded hesitant. Like what is your opinion on my picture.

x2495iiii 08-01-2010 12:22 AM

Alrighty, month's end and plenty of entries. Nice job guys. The decisions were hard, but here are my finalists:

zarfang8's Hungry Penguins (funny with a nice composition)

arty-fishL's Apocalypse ([I]Excellent[/I] detail. Try as I might, I can't find a thing out of place or odd looking. Wonderful work.)

dubastot's An Awkward Twist (Simple, yet quietly amusing)

Honorable Mentions:

jediaction's untitled second entry (I like the urban cityscape)

DensetsuNoKaboom's Cult (An odd coolness to it)

room14's War (nice detail)

Thanks again to all the entrants, your participation made this contest the best it could possibly be in terms of diversity and healthy competition.

So, I'm putting up a poll for three finalists and y'all can vote who rules and who drools, k?

jediaction 08-01-2010 12:22 PM

Oh the name of my second picture. Oops, forgot to say the title. Its Jedi Action City

So mine wasnt good enough. Aww, i thought the city was amazing

shaydon 08-01-2010 03:15 PM

hey x2495iiii i though your screenshot was entered too
i really liked that one :D

arty-fishL 08-02-2010 08:45 AM

I did like your one X. Too modest?
Jedi, your screenshot is good, but the game that goes with that screenshot is better.

jediaction 08-02-2010 10:10 AM

haha, thanks, i'll take that as a compliment

x2495iiii 08-02-2010 12:32 PM

I'd already said I wasn't entering mine, but thanks for the compliments.

The poll expires in ten days, guys, so whoever hasn't voted, get to it!

I know the competition is over, but I think this is a cool screenshot, so here it is anyway (obviously not for the comp).

x2495iiii 08-05-2010 03:25 PM

Nice. Try changing the bullet's color to black, then changing it's emissive color to light gray or gray. That'll make it look less polygonal.

debussybunny563 08-05-2010 03:48 PM

Fail
 
[SIZE="2"]Being nitpicky, that isn't just a bullet; it's an entire cartridge. Only the bullet should exit the barrel. Lots of people seem to make that mistake.[/SIZE]

arty-fishL 08-05-2010 03:48 PM

ok, its gold cos its a golden bullet, but I will try something with it anyway. This screenshot goes with a video (a trailer for storm), its a slow motion action bullet shot; like the killzone bullet trailer.

ok, well I dont even know the difference, but if you look around the gun you will see the cartridge being blown (four parts exiting around the gun).

[SIZE="2"]The cartridge shouldn't be blown apart, it stays whole and is ejected out the right side of the gun. If you look at the 'bullet,' the actual bullet is the tip.

Here's a picture: [/SIZE]

If you apply a texture map of something gold to the bullet, it will keep its gold color.

I actually knew that, though I do think the bullet looks cooler in its case than out. Meh.

I reviewed the bullet being fired and the casing should be blown like that, but as you said only the tip should remain, but it does look cooler with the whole thing.
I just searched google sketchup for a bullet with trail, so thats the model I got.
I will try the texture thing, sounds like a good idea.

I know that. But the whole bullet looks better

Yeah I was converting some models yesterday and I found that when they're low poly they can look...well...low poly. So I played around with the color schemes and found that changing those two colors makes it look considerably better. The downside is that it can be slightly darkened and is much less responsive to light. So it's not a perfect technique, but it's definitely useful.

Here's an example of what it looks like when changed:

DensetsuNoKaboom 08-20-2010 07:20 AM

It looks as if Hungry Penguins is the winner.

jediaction 08-20-2010 08:51 AM

Cool/

DensetsuNoKaboom 08-24-2010 12:05 PM

So, what does he win? (Besides bragging rights.)

jediaction 08-24-2010 02:17 PM

Yah. Oh! Mabye he gets to host the next contest?

debussybunny563 09-09-2010 06:43 PM

Upcoming Contest?
 
[SIZE="2"]When and what's the next contest going to be?[/SIZE]

x2495iiii 09-09-2010 09:46 PM

Didn't think you guys cared enough to merit holding another contest.

Am I wrong?

hmm... i think you are! =P

Hey you know what. I'll host it

x2495iiii 09-10-2010 10:08 AM

I don't think anyone but me can host contests. I've seen people try and their posts get instantly deleted.

jediaction 09-10-2010 10:20 AM

Well, it says it needs to be aproved by a moderator. Please accept it. I want to host one. Im your friend right:D

x2495iiii 09-10-2010 10:32 AM

It doesn't give me a way to accept it. At least not one that I can see.

dubastot 09-22-2010 04:44 PM

How about a contest for the greatest game concept rather than ranking the actual game itself.

jediaction 09-22-2010 08:36 PM

[QUOTE=dubastot;25664]How about a contest for the greatest game concept rather than ranking the actual game itself.[/QUOTE]

That's not too bad of an idea.

Maybe we could take the best concept and try to make it using Alice, but as a community, not individually.

We could take turns working on certain parts of it, maybe Dameria could add collision detection and arty or zone could add some scripts, etc.

That could be cool.

jediaction 09-23-2010 08:48 AM

I like it! But how would we post our projects. In game form?
