I didnt want this to be from a picture. only the name of the object. that way you can determine the look of the object. make it as realistic as possible. add your own textures, your own modifications; past, present, or future. NOT just a duplication of an image So that everyones is the same except a few minor details here or there. I want them to all be different, but with the same goal in mind: to make THAT particular thing.
This should also make it easier to judge because of the variation. And you wouldnt have to post an .ogz file, only a few pictures. This is meant to be a quick over the weekend contest.
With that being said: I think we should start this competition next weekend. With your permission I will mention the competition on quadropolis forums along with the object of choice. which is a trolley car also known as a cable car.
make a post on quadropolis now ... ill make some art and give it to u to put on there... make an announcement on here and ill set up the boards for the contest. Also you should make a rules page with all the rules for the contest, which more or less should be a copy and edit of this board. Obi0usly we can set the date for next weekend. And have it start fri and end sun night.
On another note: Noticed that reconstruction got most of the votes on the poll i posted, maybe we should plan on making a reconstruction contest in the next month or so. I have over 300 maps that could be used for this, and ill have to look at the copyright on these, or if you have a particular map in mind.
I think thats it chasester

Well, I can't help with much more than spelling problems. I'm quite busy for the week. Good thing we have lots of admins.
As for the contests like building an object, and reconstruction, It's kind of like a secondary and primary contest. The reconstruction is an order of magnitude larger. This one we're talking about here could even be held at the same time as that one, but I'm not sure how well that would work out.
We could have regular large contests with little ones in between. And maybe a hall of fame.
