Old topic!
The last post in this thread is over 60 days old. Posting in this thread will be considered a bump, so please make an attempt to be courteous if you go ahead with it.

If the last post is over 6 months old, it may instead be a better idea to start a new topic. If you aren't sure about what to do, feel free to ask a staff member for help, or try to locate a 'general questions'-type thread if it exists in this (sub-)forum.

    If I come up with something that I deem interesting enough, I guess I'll try.
    I probably won't.

    Wait, Noxid and Spirit are in this?
    Welp, there goes 1st and 2nd.

    I'm honestly more interested in WHAT kind of mod they'll make.

    I'll enter the contest as well, school ends for me on the 23th, so I'll basically have a week to do this. This will be a real challenge.

    tbh though end of june is pretty close up. I wouldn't be opposed to a date extension of some sort, since we don't even really get the full month here.

    Super glad that this has received such a positive response so far. I truly look forward to playing all the entries. Even if you're not a veteran like Noxid or Safusaka, I believe any of you can make something just as great if you put your heart into it :orangebell:
    Also, as a side note, @DoubleThink and I have went through careful deliberations regarding contest details. Even though this won't be relevant until the contest closes, the judging details have been updated. Check the original post if you want to know more.

    Yep. Assuming that means you're starting the mod from scratch, you can re-use any old ideas or whatever else you may have leftover from your work.
    You know, if there are a reasonable amount of entries (which there should be, going by the reception so far), I could totally throw together a third place prize too. I'll make an announcement when the time comes. ;)
    This was among the various topics I was discussing with your fellow staff member. When conceptualizing the contest, I realized I didn't want it to go on for too long. There are a lot of tiny reasons for this, and overall I think it's possible to create a perfectly good mini-mod in 20+ days. However, your point is noted. I will say that, under the right conditions nearing the end of the submission period, an extension would be considered. I do NOT, however, want to give people the false impression that they're getting an extra week already. The deadline is still the end of June.

    This seems like a really interesting contest idea. So much so that this almost makes me want to set aside a few weeks and make a submission... I kind of stopped the whole modding thing a while ago, but I had a lot of ideas that I never got to share with you guys. Maybe I can try to throw something together to at least express some of those ideas. I will have to agree with Noxid that it would be nice to have maybe one extra week or so to make our submissions. Just my opinion.

    I haven't done much modding in ages, but I know enough cool shit that I can probably whip something interesting up.
    That said, I might get super busy, since it's near the end of the semester; I hope that doesn't happen.

    Are we allowed to get help for things like art design? Because unlike what I set about ORGmaking a long time ago, I still suck at art. I tried making a pixelated plane the other day and my friend looked over and asked why I was drawing dicks in MS Paint. :muscledoc:
