The Alien Devices Modeling Contest

Intro:

The President's Book of Secrets contains the truth about the JFK assassination, September 11 and other world events, but the most important and curious entry is simply a geographic coordinate "34.924641,-115.350160" followed by "DND" underlined in red ink (Do Not Disturb). Buried a mile under the Mojave Desert and encased in three feet of concrete is a lead-lined vault containing an archive of highly volatile and dangerous alien devices well beyond our understanding of science and physics, collected and stored under a secret international treaty over the last two centuries. Some of these devices can transmit over thousands of light years within seconds, while others can only be described as doomsday devices.

Judging:

The submissions will be judged on the following categories:

  • Quality of the model(s)
  • Quality of the texture(s)
  • Quality of Custom UV / light / normal maps
To qualify, all the models must be uploaded to the site and tagged as a contest entry before the DEADLINE!

    Ok, I agree with you.

    Also, would love to know your reason of posting this now because I am not sure what's the point of posting all that 2 months after the winners got announced.
    Well, I forgot about it, but when I saw it again yesterday I thought that I should make a note. Its just an opinion.

    I want you to know that I am not intending to make problems or dispute, as I said above, its only a comment.

    NvC_DmN_CH: Corvalho contacted me a week before the contest deadline and asked if the submission (which later went to be his entry) would be fine for the contest and he got my permission for it.

    On a more interesting side note, the gun / device his alien is holding as well as the amount of work and quality of the entry overall is on a higher level than many other entries and the judges' scored showed it being the winning one.

    So yeah, the entry features a character, a gun / item / device (call it as you wish), maps (diffuse, specular and glossiness), is rigged and even has facial expressions which, if you ask me (I, by the way, wasn't one of the judges nor did I have any influence on what the winning entry will be), is a really great addition to it.

    Sure, the female character may not fit the contest theme in terms of the type of submission, but it still is related to aliens and their origin and it features a device (the device, which, I should mention, takes around as much amount of work to make as by most of the other entries).

    As for your part of the comment where you talked about "judging by time to be done or by theme", in fact, Corvalho's been in this sort of stuff for around 6 years so far I know, so if he did it in 8 days, it doesn't mean that someone would need 8 days for it, obviously. 

    Also, would love to know your reason of posting this now because I am not sure what's the point of posting all that 2 months after the winners got announced.

    Yeah, Corvalho's model is really cool It really deserves the 1st place, Im not saying anything bad about it,

    I just don't understand this disparity:





    You know, the images tell everything. And also |WoH|Siesta's 'Aline Stuff' and Yogensia's 'Star Trek VISOR' were items (or devices), and high-quality.

    Im not angry nor anything, just saying.

    NvC_DmN_CH: Don't worry about it. I had already taken the submission in the list and set it up for judging so it'd have counted either way.

    Anyhow, glad Corvalho had taken care of the submission itself. I noticed that only one was left so I didn't intervene.

    Also, the Entrants page shows only 1 of your entries, so if you have added multiple of them, it will show only the older one even though your all entries would have been judged. That's some sort of a bug / lack of the feature.

    Quick update: The contest has been extended a little bit.

    Thank god, I thought that uploading the unfinished object is inevitable.

    EDIT/HELP:

    Arman Ossi Loko, A submission duplication has occured, but the other one without preview.

    Thy both are in the contest, but unfortunately the one without the preview is listed in the Entrants.

    I wonder if I delete the one without preview will the other one be listed on its place, or a moderator has to change their positions?

    Link 1 (Old one but listed)
    http://gamebanana.com/models/3844

    Link 2 (New and with preview, wanted to be listed)
    http://gamebanana.com/models/3845




    EDIT:

    Corvalho fixed it.

    btw my object has specular map, but it isn't listed shown in the submission (just saying). And I didn't make a vehicle, a weapon is better.
