    I love the sketchy (like a freaky spiky anteater?)... The mesh looks nothing like what I envisioned from your sketchy (but then, it is a steampunk contest).

    Quite interested to see what you can pull off. If nothing else, "Undead Mechanical Beast" is one of the coolest set of tags I can imagine for a model. :p

    Toma, that giant thing is lovely :> although you'll definitely need just the driver capsule as portrait.. this camera stares into an unidentifiable shape.. also the 'origin' attachment point, with how huge the machine is, doesn't really fit in its usual place.. and it looks very odd when i pick up a cloak of flames and just see a green ball right between the mech's legs :xxd: same with auras. maybe it would be more fitting to have the 'origin' somewhere near the driver, and moving with the driver capsule.. or.. to shrink the mech enough so it fits to normal auras? I'm sure the former is much easier..? :xxd:

    reworked the concept a little bit :>

    it's kind of a darksteel clockwork horror, with a steel ribcage furnace.. the sharp head might be detachable in a spell throw kind of thing

    i was going very low-poly with alpha textures, but that's potentially shitty since we dont have many steampunkish alpha textures in the mpq...

    don't know if you guys had that talk here, but i would be very much thankful if an extension was given :3

    I might enter if there's an extension. Or maybe not. I could judge if more judges are needed. I have a few ideas, but nothing too crazy or creative. Not really a fan of the theme. D:

    For how long? A week?

    Well, we still need judges. So It would be nice if you want to take the last position.

    i'd say two weeks of extension. we would host contests with 6 weeks until the deadline (plus extensions). this one came out with a little less than 4 weeks... i think it's kinda short and it might end up with very few entries... i think a 2-week extension would be good

    and @Deo do participate! we find judges later, this contest needs more entries ._.

    An extension of about 1-2 weeks would be wonderful, I think. I'll think about judging or participating. :p

    EDIT: Actually, what HappyCockroach said. This contest was seriously short, for some reason. 2 weeks or maybe even more would be great.

    I kinda agree on lengthening it by a week or two, but really, i don't want it dragging out like the last one did <w<

    While I disagree that the contest was short (4 weeks or 28 days) however, I do agree that we need more completed entries. A such, yes. I agree. The contest will be extended by two weeks. There will however not be another extension. This is the final one.

    Make it count.

    I see many Wips here but only 2 final entries are entered/listed in the first post, except for the final entry of pvt. Toma. The extension this contest has is just right for others to finish their entries.
    EDIT;
    As of this date, we have the following entries:
    Contestant Entry
    -Grendel Moltenstein
    Freddyk Hovercraft
    Pvt.Toma Gigantus2

    Moltenstein alone makes this contest a success. :p

    However I too agree with an extension. "What's a Wc3-Modding Contest without one?" :p

    Hey now... That wasn't really the contest dragging out, but the judging. :<

    also, this may not be the right place to ask you guys, but is there some way to use building sound responses as event objects? i kinda want to use some unit sounds as an attack sound for my entry

    Edge45's Entry Final: 6/1/14 (In my Country's time)

    This will be my final submission: The MAX Tanki

    Some Few GIF Screenshots
    [​IMG][​IMG]


    On the screenshot, its just two animations, I'm short on time so its only two, but there's also alternate,
    If there's something that I forgot, some problems or sounds, maybe I'll update this model once the contest ends. It's back to work time, so I should submit this quickly.

    no, there isn't.

    the only way would be out of the modelling boundaries, which would be replacing the source sound with an import sound that is a copy of that building sound you want.

    other than that, we can only use as event objects the sounds blizzard told us to in the art tools documentation. :)


    and your entry is interesting but leaves to desire in terms of previews

    Looks awesome :) Always loved borderlands... Although in that preview you used that sharpen filter a bit too much.
    A very nice looking, polished model, clearly fitting to the steampunk theme. Also very british-looking. Would be nice if he had an animation where he struck the axe in the ground and started drinking steaming tea :D
    Apart from some minor flaws (Like his upper cape during his walk anim), it rocks, well done ;)
    P.S. Bitch please, I don't even know how to add particles. Nor effects. nor sounds. Nor attachment points. Nor cameras. F*ck :D
