    As we wind on down the road, effect creation calls out to our souls. Contestants must create two light-themed effects.




    [​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.

    [​IMG]

    • You must show at least one unfinished preview of your submission, as proof it is yours.
    • Custom textures that aren't edits of in-game ones must be at least 60% freehand. Contestants must present at least one WIP of said textures.
    • 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.
    • Your final submission must work in-game and be bug-free.
    • For convenience, you may isolate certain animation phases of your effect (see Death Coil Missile and Death Coil Special Art).
    • 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: 40 reputation points.
    • 2nd place: 30 reputation points.
    • 3rd place: 20 reputation points.
    • Entry: 10 reputation points.
    • Judge: 5 reputation points per entry.
    The three winners will receive an award icon representing the winning entry.



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]


    Aesthetics Are the effects impressive, and made in good measure? How is the attention to detail? /30
    Animations How natural, smooth, and appropriate are the animations? /15
    Creativity How inventive and original are the ideas? /30
    Integration How well do the models work in-game? Do they have fitting sounds? Are they excessive to the point of hindering visibility? /10
    Theme How well do the effects fit the theme? /15
    /100

    Results calculation

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




    [​IMG]
    The contest shall begin on 4th July 2020 and conclude on 8th August 2020 GMT (day included).

    Alright, I have a first idea in mind: Holy Collision.

    Some early progress today:

    Static Preview - 1

    preview2.png


    Animated Preview - 2

    It still needs a lot of work, but at least it's something for an okay start.

    I'm pretty sure Reforged effects should be the ones people need to double check on. because since Reforged release iv'e actually never seen even any reskinned effects for it.

    So Yeah neither are getting ignored i think. almost 99% sure.

    Less than a week left. If you guys are still interested, we'll have an extension. If we can't get to 3 finalists, the contest will be shelved.

    Damn, this thread hasn't even reached the second page. I bet that everyone's rather busy now that the gov is letting us loose again, myself included.

    This time it won't be as high-effort as the ones I made for the previous contests. Time till deadline is quite short.
