The Sci-Fi Skinning Contest

A Contest for GameBanana

Contest has ended.

The Sci-Fi Skinning Contest

Intro

Science giveth, science taketh away. From the life giving technologies of herbal medicine to bloodstream nanobots, and the life ending technologies of the recursive bow to orbital bombardments, those that embrace Science prosper, and those that don't, diminish. Whether Science will save us from extinction or directly cause it, only time can tell. Until this reckoning, technology will remain an ever alluring and irresistible human obsession.

Rules

The rules are listed in the right hand column. Pay specific attention to rules 4, 6 & 7, people keep making great contest submissions that unfortunately break those rules.

Judging

The submissions will be judged on the following categories:
  • Overall quality of the Model(s), Textures, Animations and Sounds
  • Originality (Does the submission fit the theme)
  • Technical ability & skill required to create the submission

To qualify, the submissions must be uploaded to the site and tagged as a contest entry before the DEADLINE!

Special thanks to Corvalho - the promo images come from a previous contest entry by him.

    7.Ported content is allowed ONLY FROM games whose developers have stated that they allow their content to be used commercially.

    From this rule I gather *only* 100% custom created content  and Exports like mentioned here are applicable to this contest.

    My understanding is this... an original custom sci-fi reskin (texture) based on a model that is in a retail game couldn't be entered in this contest, if the model it's based on can't be sold commercially outside it's game.

    Am I correct in this understanding of the rule set?

    In the spirit of the theme, I'd just like to point out the difference between science fiction and speculative fiction. Speculative fiction are things that are possible in today's world but aren't for some reason, whereas science fiction are things that cannot exist yet.

    I got a small question, I have an old CS sci-fi skin from the 1.1 cs-skins.net era. Is it possible to submit it for the contest after doing some fixes like changing the hands and adding attachments (muzzle, shell ejection) and adding some better sounds? Here's the render of the weapon btw

    So I guess Smash Bros mods count? Felt like making a Galactic Greninja or Marvin Martian Ness to bring some variety.

    If I have a concept for a skin, but also plan to make the skin for the contest, would I be able to submit both? (Concept at first, then the skin if/when I finish it)
    Who even finishes mods, right?
