    Alright guys, A lot of people complained in the last contest that there were "too many rules"... the rules were there to point out the boundaries of the theme that you already knew were there. So to prevent crying and another shitstorm, this contest theme will remain Open-ended. free to interpretation. So use some common sense, use google for all i care. But just remember that if your "air unit" is not technically an "air unit" then it might be disqualified by the judges and there goes all your hard work.

    all i have to say now is good luck and have fun. LET THE CONTEST BEGIN

    Air units... well that changes things. Thought it was aircraft as in flying mech stuff (which is kinda hard to make original). I'm not sure if I will have time to pull this one through but if I have I will most certainly be in (guess what it will be :cgrin:).

    ok, we are fucked, fingolfin entered D:

    and crazed seal... as you can clearly and easily read above, the contest theme is AIR UNITS and is otherwise free to interpretation....

    /me gets out the crayon and paper

    that means that it can be biological, or mechanical, it can morph, it can do a little dance, i don't really care. But it has to be an AIR UNIT, a model that can FLY through the air. Im not exactly sure what you mean by "virus". A virus is a microscopic organism that infects other biological units... im not sure how the fuck we are going to SEE this thing if it's that small. Or do you mean a computer virus... i dont even know how you would model that.

    a virus can be a flying unit since it will basically need to hover around and etc.

    oh btw, a hover unit is not a air unit

    oh and i am entering

    Perhaps you should state in the text under the image that it can be organic and it can morph, so that people with the same doubts won't ask again.
    People, please keep the thread clean. Avoid unnecessary/noncontributory messages.

    I would like to enter, but after the last contest I'm a bit dismotivated because I will become last anyway.

    Whatever, it's the participation that counts, not the final scoring ^^
    Now I just need a creative idea.

    I think I will do something Modern/Futuristic/Fallout 3 styled air unit.
    But maybe also something for my Zelda map I revived the last days :D

    Oh wait, must it be organic or can it be a kind of robot/drone, too??

    Good Luck to everyone!
