    UI

    [​IMG]
    • No submission may violate any of the site rules.
    • If a submission does not follow the skin submission rules the creator will be disqualified.
    • Your submission must be posted before the deadline. The post containing your final submission must also contain the following:
      • An in game screenshot showing your submission in action.
      • The file(s) in the appropriate format.
    • 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.
    • Judges may not participate.
    • Teamwork is not allowed.
    • Textures must be no larger than 512 pixels in any dimension when submitted as final entry, though you may work in 1024 (or higher), but they must be resized down to 512 pixels on equal dimension textures when submitted.
    • You only have to skin the main UI - menus, buttons and so on are optional but earn you brownie points!

      • UITile01.blp
      • UITile02.blp
      • UITile03.blp
      • UITile04.blp

    [​IMG]
    • shiik
    • Tell us if you want to judge!
    [​IMG]
    Shading and Highlights Is the skin shaded? Is the shading and Highlights appropriate? Does the shading fallow a consistent light source? Are metallic regions shaded correctly? /25%
    Originality and Creativity How original is this skin? Is it something new and interesting, or is it to creative? Does the skin have any resemblance to the original, or is it so different you need to tell us what it wraps around? Does the skin have a good underlying concept and idea? /25%
    Texture Detail Is the skin Blurry? How well are the detail created on the skin? Are the patterns, armor, joints and seams in new and innovative places or the same spot as the original skin? How well are the patterns created? How 3-dimensional does the texture make flat portions of the skin appear? /25%
    In-Game Dynamics How well does the skin work in WC3? Is the minimap, portrait, etc obstructed by the texture? Does it fit with WC3's art style? /25%
    • 75 % of the winner shall be determined by the contest's appointed judge(s).
    • 25 % of the winner shall be determined by the results of a public poll.
    [​IMG]
    • The contest shall begin on 12 Oct 2010 and conclude on 6th December 2010, 11:59, GMT

    [​IMG]
    Skinning something as big as the UI may look daunting but remember a lot of it is empty space!

    Even though UITile04.blp is actually only 512x128, if it doesn't show up when viewing it ingame, resize it to 512x512 and WC3 will stretch it back to fit.​

    You really should give links to a tutorial or quickly explain where the files that need to be modified are.

    For everyone who doesn't know where to get the files, I suggest you check unwirkich's UIs at WC3C. They have plenty of information such as paths and such.

    It doesn't really matter. Mine is different; it's reminiscent of the Icecrown Citadel's architecture.

    Here's a scribble
