Title: Resource Contest 2015
Post by: Prpl_Mage on December 01, 2015, 12:23:15 PM
Greetings everyone, since the Complete Resources are back online again I decided to throw a Resource Contest. Also, thanks to an interesting idea from a fellow mod the winner will also have his resources become the foundation we build the next Chain Game on. Basically, the 3 resources you make will  decide the theme and/or style of the game. (Although it might take some time for that game to start so I will have time to replicate the style to make a bundle of resources for people to use.)

The actual contest will begin this Sunday 6/12 (or Friday 4/12 if you prefer Fridays) so right now I just want to see how many of you would be interested in participating. From the start of the contest you will get one(1) week to finish your resources.

The rules for the contest is quite simple:

Three (3) types of resources will be chosen when the contest starts. These include: Charset, Battle charset, Weapons, Facesets, Tilesets, Monsters.

I decided to exclude Music, Sound, Movies, Animations, Pictures, Backgrounds, Panorama, Game over, Title screens and System 1& 2. Mainly because it might be tricky to make without certain software or because it would be hard to judge. If you feel like I should include any of the above then mention so in your post.

Tl;dr: Resource contest, Starts on Sunday or Friday, you have one week to finish. On Sunday you will get the information on what 3 types of resources you should make. The winner's resources will decide the theme, setting and style of the next chain game.

--------------------------------------------------------
Contest started! you have until Friday 11/12, 23.55 to send me your resources in a PM.

Okay so I made a draw and the three resources are these:
1. Charset, 8 different characters. (leave one naked if you make an original style)
2. Battle charset, for one character.
3. Monster, do anything you like here.

Yessssssss!! Contests are back. Well since I make a ton of resources for myself anyway why not? Only thing I stink at still is tilesets. Especially by scratch. ^^; Ah what the heck sign me up! I'm a nostalgia junkie. X3

Never made much by scratch, but why not try? I'm not sure the result will look good as far as I'm concernÚs, but if not, you can always not take them into account. Nothing much planned this week, so count me in :)

Aww dangit! If we get into a background off I'll lose for sure now. XD Still there's other areas I'm good at so I ain't dropping out.

Wait BGs are not elegiable. ^o^ Yay for me!

Sounds like fun, will give it a spin. I'd prefer Friday so I can do it over the weekend.

XD For my game I used Legend of Mana backgrounds and only added tiles from Mother 3... so technically, I did not do much at all, so don't be scared ;)

I would be interested in doing either a charset or monster, but only if it starts on Friday and if I can include said resource in the chain game (which I plan to pass on Monday).

I'm up for monsters, System 1 and 2 but my charasets are mostly the generator and my charas Ex. Zolty has only made two mondo awesome charasets by himself for ZSKoSS.  _sweat_ So I'm unsure if I'd do a Gnarly job or not.  :(

Aww was really hoping for tileset. But this seems good, love doing characters. I'll get started right way.

Battle Charset will be hard ! :O

Question does it matter what amount of battlers? I mean do we have to do the standard two with only the base poses or do we have to do custom statuses? Heh I got the Chara set half done but the monster....I'm not big on custom monsters. I feel that'll be my Achilles heel. ^^;

If you can motivate why you only use 1 set of battler to complete all the animations required for a basic battle set then sure.

Are black and white (and levels of gray) allowed, or must be in colour?

That sounds pretty cool, go for it

So far I've received 1 full set of charset, battlechar and monster. But no need to feel stressed you have like 5 days left

Hey a question on if it's a template type battler. Does it have to be all by hand or can I strip down a style? Need to know so I don't go wasting time on something that will be useful after the contest but ultimately would get me disqualified.

I have faith in your ability to make things Fish but if you need some assistance then do it. Just try to make as much as possible on your own

I'm stuck on the monster so far, haven't got much idea for it :/

I'm dropping out, guys.  I could enter a monster sprite but a charaset and battler is just too much.  _sweat_ Good luck to all who remain!

Well I may not win on the BC but I know my monster and Chara sets will be contenders. ^_^ And whatever beats me will strengthen the Chain Game or other projects on here. Still I'm not competing to win but for the thrill of it! X3 So good luck everyone!
