    SPAWNERS AND SPAWNED
    [Optionally Paired]
    Contestants are to create two models. A spawner and a spawned unit. The combination can be a summoner and its summoned unit, a structure and the minions it spawns/trains, a master and its servant(s), or similar combination of 'creator' and 'created' unit.

    • No submission may violate any of the site rules.
    • All submissions must follow the current theme. If any model does not fit, a moderator will tell you as soon as possible as to avoid confusion.

      • All files in their appropriate format - any textures and additional effects you might have made, as well as the model itself along with an optional portrait.
      • All custom textures necessary for your model to work properly if applicable.
    • You must show at least one unfinished preview of each model in your submission, before the deadline, as proof that they are yours.
    • Your submission may not be started/made before the official launch of the contest. This includes any animation, meshes, or textures made by other users before the official launch of the contest and material made by users not participating in the contest.
    • Judges may not participate

    • Teamwork is allowed for up to two players.

    Breaking any of these rules may lead to punishment in the judgement score, up to disqualification from the contest, depending on the weight of the issue. In case of doubts towards a certain rule you are very encouraged to discuss it in the contest thread so others and judges may help with sorting it out.

    Mesh How the mesh looks aesthetically? How are its proportions, its balance and scale? How coherent is polygon distribution? /10
    Skin How good is the wrap? Are custom textures appealing? Or how adequate are the in-game chosen textures? Is it blurry/stretched? Do the tones go well together? /10
    Animations How natural, smooth and appropriate are the animations? If they're custom, how well are they executed? Do they have physical coherence? Do they have character/personality? If they are imported, how appropriate was the animation choice? How hard is it to relate it to the original in that case? /10
    Effects How adequate are the particle/ribbon/etc effects added? Do they contribute to the model? Are they impressing? But are they added in a good measure? Did the model need more? /5
    Theme How well do the two models fit each other thematically? Do they complement each other? Is it clear which is the spawner and which is the spawnee? /10
    Mechanics How well does the model work in-game? Are the animations recognizable in-game? Does it feature attachments/footprints/collisions/etc? Is it fully selectable? /5
    Creativity How original is the general idea? How inventive is the execution? Does it fit the theme? Does it fit WC3 environment? /10
    /60

    Results calculation

    Due to low participation last contest, I slightly altered the theme to be less restrictive.

    Are we allowed to use others' custom textures and animations?
    We can pair with either texturers or modelers, right?

    You cannot use material made before the contest. What specifically do you have in mind?

    You can pair however you like. You could both make a model/texture each, or one could do models, the other textures. One could do 90% of the work, the other 10%. Etc., Etc.

    So, the models should be made in one file, or the models can be separated?

    They can, and probably should, be separated. You can use alternative animations I guess. But it is in no way required.

    Now now people, let's not repeat the same mistake as the last contest. If you have ideas, post them and perhaps find a team-mate if you'd work better that way.

    Dare new heights and concepts :]

    Some big ideas to share:
    1. Mushroom Giant or Tree spawning some mushroom people with clubs and swords.
    2. Giant Tree Creature producing veggie men or fruitmen.
    3. Light Core or Bright Portal-Like Entity or Anomaly spawning particle-form or ethereal beings like wisps or souls.
    4. Black Thick Slime like tar or gooey substance producing lesser goo beings.
    5. Jelly king spawning jelly minions.
    6. Plastic factory producing plastic monochromatic soldiers or creatures.
    7. Giant Mass of Flesh or Blob producing flesh husks or minions.
    8. Tombraiser spawning limitless skeletons and mummies from pile of bones.
    9. Ghost Machine or Portal spawning ghosts and sprites.
    10. Hive-like thing or creature that broods and spawns flying alien creatures that swarm.
    11. Pool of fire or mud spawning fire minions or beings of mud/clay.
