    STEAMPUNK - MODELING CONTEST #26
    Victorian era machinery, steam powered, utilized in the ascension of man. How will this be like? Will it be robotics? Will it be a vehicle? Will it be a robotic vehicle? maybe an individual that has become 'something more' through the use of steampunk gadgets, machinery implants and what not.. will it be something like Kroenen? long-dead body with a clockwork heart, or would it be a giant steampunk cyborg? or something else? Is it perhaps a backpack of beautiful machinery that enables one to amass the powers of the void or do you have another unique idea you find interesting? Experiment, have fun and present your own unique interpretation.

    Ladies and Gentlemen. We've held a poll, and you people have spoken. With steampunk as a clear winner, that is why this contest is now hosted for you all. For others who voted something else and might be feeling a little down, not to worry. Nothing states you can't create steampunk version of your original idea. So please, everyone, participate in this contest. Make sure we got a lot of lovely entries. ;D

    [​IMG]
    MESH The geometry of the model, the wire-frame that gives your model a physical form and silhouette. Does the shape look clean or deformed? Are all ends capped, are there any stray faces, etc? Clean, distinctive meshes graded highly; deformed or incomplete meshes graded poorly. 10 Points
    ANIMATIONS The movement of your model. The animations give your model life, character, a personality. Are these animations smooth or choppy; organic or puppet-like? Do the animations deform or clip parts of the mesh? Smooth, life-like anims graded highly; choppy or lifeless anims graded poorly. 10 Points
    TEXTURE/UV WRAP The skin, or texture of a model, expresses many important aspects of the character. Is the texture well made; is it blurry, does it have a pleasant color scheme, does it have detail, etc? Or, if In-Game textures were used, how well was it wrapped? Are there parts that are clipped, misaligned or stretched? Clean, effective textures graded highly; cluttered or haphazard textures graded poorly. 10 Points
    MECHANICS 50% of the "Does it fit in Wc3" criteria (Mechanically). Does this model work in-game in all mechanical respects? Placed next to other War3 heroes, does it fit? I.e. is it visible when imported, is the texture path-name hard to import, are chunks of the mesh loose and flying around, is the texture the correct proportion, is the model a relatively manageable size (in KBs), do all the animations play properly in-game, do all the particles/ribbon emitters work, does it have footsteps, death sounds, portrait model/camera, life-bar in the right place, and so on. Proper mechanics graded highly; incomplete or messed-up mechanics graded poorly. 10 Points
    EFFECTS The ol' "razzle-dazzle". Special effects add a factor of 'shock and awe'. Particle emitters, ribbon emitters, and sometimes geometry (such as shockwave planes or 3d-debris). Meaningful, aesthetic effects graded highly; tasteless or un-fitting effects graded poorly. 5 Points
    CREATIVITY The other 50% of the "Does it fit in Wc3" criteria (Aesthetically), and the most Subjective of criteria for Judges. Overall, the essence of your model: Is this a creative idea? Is it unique, innovative, or clever? Or, perhaps if it has been done before, how has the creator 'made it his own'? What has he added to make it special, or different from the ones that have come before him? Thoughtful and creative innovation graded highly; insufficient OR over-done & unfitting creativity graded poorly. 10 Points
    • 60 % of the winner shall be determined by the contest's appointed judge(s).
    • 40 % of the winner shall be determined by the results of a public poll.
    [​IMG]
    • The contest shall begin on the 12th of May, at 09:00 and conclude on the 6th of June, at 23:59
      The contest has been extended by two weeks. The new ending of the contest is on the 20th of June, at 23:59, GMT +1
    When the contest has officially ended, the judges shall then be given a week to pass the judgments, if complications arise, the judge may be subject to replacement.

    When all the judges has sent in their judgement, a poll will be opened. These votes will be accounted for, the poll will be public to avoid any possibility of cheating.
    A neutral party will then be appointed to do the math required to get a result. Which will be posted as soon as that is done. A week or two, basically.

    If it takes longer; the neutral party will be subjected to continuous pestering from his peers.

    Finished entries;

    The starting date was tomorrow tho. It's not like a day here and there matters much though. ;O
    The rule is basically to ensure that the model is made specifically for the contest. But whatever.

    I'll let this one slide for now. Please stop the progress on it until tomorrow tho.
    Just for the sake of following the rules I spent a good ten minutes setting up.

    I don't think they'll mind that much. You're eager to begin, that's a good sign, really. XD

    Hmm, that theme sure is interesting. I'm gonna go for the attachment category. Currently wondering between a cogwheel ballista crossbow and a steampunk cogwheel warhammer. Steam all the way :p
    PS still haven't decided if i will join.

    Well, there's a requirement for animation, so I doubt there's a possibility of attachments being a possibility. You could always have a unit wielding those things tho.
