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.

    lol, of course. Any sort of asset is fair to use, so go ahead and rip a bunch of graphics from other video games, force your pal to work slave labor, or whatever else will get your mod done in time.

    Despite the whole "contests" shtick, the idea behind these events is really more about getting as many neat creations together as feasible for everyone to enjoy than caring about winning. They're always going to be somewhat limited by time and current modding ability, there's no real ideal for someone to shoot for except the best they know how to do. Both the last contest and the old hell mod contest came out with eight mods - we're never going to top that if we can't get more people involved :orangebell:

    There was some talk about making posting anonymous to avoid any potential bias, but I can't remember what came of that discussion.

    We could just all send our mods to tpcool and then he could post them all at once.

    Although I already showed my character, so people will know which mod mine is...

    And from that picture, I can already tell that your mod's going to be great.

    A bit of an important update (details also updated in the original post).

    In regards to the contest deadline, I have been fairly stubborn about making any changes. So far, however, I have gotten many requests to extend the deadline so that everybody has a full month to work on their entries. My original plan was to check up with everyone a week or so before the deadline to see if an extension was necessary, but the calls for an extension have been unanimous up to this point. So, at the risk of appearing hasty/impulsive, the submission deadline will be extended to Thursday, July 7th 11:59PM EST, or one week after the original deadline. That's it, though! A full month is plenty of time (and it was the length of the previous contest). Please plan out your mod's scope around this final deadline.

    Now, in response to anonymous entries: I am not going to require them, but please feel free to choose that option if you so desire. Send me a PM with your entry and the exact specifications of when you want your mod posted (the second you send it to me, when the voting thread gets made, etc.) and how you would want me to present it. But again, it's not required, so if you don't want to do that you can just post a link to your submission in this thread. @SeasonsOfDestiny's point regarding bias likely true to some extent, but @Kenzo_ITN is right in saying that he (and many, many other entrants) has already disclosed details about his mod (and many entrants have particularly distinct styles as well), so it would be too late to debate making that a requirement.

    Of course he didn't. How can everyone not vote for @Safusaka if it's anonymous?

    It's because we all know we'll lose either way. All the best modders are entering.
    I don't even know if I'll be able to finish mine because of corruption and whatnot.
    I still don't know why we can't just enjoy ourselves and try something new without being held back because 'if we can't win, why try?'.
    I don't care if I'm last, I'm still going to give it my all. The value of fun doesn't need to be edited with a hex editor (Whatever the hell that means. Interpret it however you want...?).

    So uhh... Motivation!!! Yeah!!!! ... (Awkward Silence) ... (damit i scared them all away)
