    Create a model of a unit riding a mount or vehicle of your choice. Classic submissions only.

    The mount can be anything, as long as it handles all the displacement for the rider.




    [​IMG]
    • 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.
    • The bundle containing your final submission must also contain the following:
      • An in-game screenshot showing your submission in action.
      • Any additional effects you might have made.
    • You may upload icons to accompany your submission in its bundle. They will not be judged - only your submission itself will be.
    • You must show at least one unfinished preview of your submission, before the deadline, as proof that it's 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.
    [​IMG]
    • Judges may not participate.
    • Your final submission must work in-game and be bug-free.
    • Teamwork is allowed for up to two people.
    • Must contain the following animations, and more if possible:
      • Stand
      • Walk
      • Death
      • Portrait Animations (whether it's for a camera or a separate portrait model)
    • Structures must include Birth animation
    • Heroes must include Dissipate animation
    • Feel free to ask if you have any questions regarding the rules.
    If a submission does not follow the model submission rules the creator will be disqualified.
    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.





    [​IMG]
    • 1st place: 55 reputation points.
    • 2nd place: 40 reputation points.
    • 3rd place: 25 reputation points.
    • Entry: 10 reputation points.
    • Judge: 10 reputation points per entry.
    The three winning teams will receive an award icon representing the winning entry.

    [​IMG]

    Mesh How does the mesh look aesthetically? How are its proportions, its balance and scale? How coherent is polygon distribution? /15
    Skin How good is the wrap? Are custom textures appealing? How adequate are the in-game chosen textures? Are they blurry/stretched? Do the tones go well together? /15
    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? /15
    Effects How adequate are the particle/ribbon/etc effects? Do they contribute to the model? Are they impressive? Are they added in good measure? Did the model need more? /15
    Theme How well does the model fit the theme? Is there a clear distinction between the rider and the vehicle/mount? /15
    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? /10
    Creativity How original is the general idea? How inventive is the execution? /15
    /100

    Results calculation

    • Judgement: 70%
    • Poll: 30%
    FinalScore = (30*Reached_Votes/POSSIBLE_VOTES) + (70*Average_Judge_Score/POSSIBLE_SCORE)




    [​IMG]
    The contest shall begin on 3rd April 2020 and conclude on 22nd May 2020 GMT (day is included).

    Oh heck yeah, this's gonna be good. Mounted units are eminently useful & very cool.

    CLASSIC FTW.

    Anyway, if anyone is waffling on this, consider that @Retera 's excellent Matrix Eater tool, unlike Magos or MdlVis or anything else, can be used to easily combine two models (complete with animations!).

    Also, if anyone needs help theorycrafting a mounted Jungle Troll unit, well... You know who to call. ; )
