As Bill is a bit short on time, he's decided to allow me to moderate the second edition of this competition. Thanks mate! Pay attention people, because this concerns you! Welcome, welcome people, you have just entered the: MNPCTech Case Design Competition, part II: Scratch Build For those among you that missed the first one, here's a fast way to get there: [thread=156072]clicky[/thread] 19-3: Peter Kani, one of Bills friends and jungle modding expert has created this sweet sweet promo video for us: Go see more of his videos over at his youtube channel, it's certainly worth your time! The Prizes As with the previous competition, MNPCTech has graciously vowed to provide some sweet prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners! Quickly skip ahead to the next post to see what they are! More prizes will be added over time to keep everybody motivated. The Task So you want to know how to enter and lay your claim to these great prizes and eternal fame the way Dark~3nergy did the first time with his winning entry? Simple! Design a 3D model of a PC case, from scratch. That's it! Use all your creativity, find all those ideas that have been lurking in your head for years, close doors and windows, and unleash your crazy side! We greatly recommend using Googles free program Sketchup, as it is easy to learn, easy to use, and gets you good results fast. It's also recommended to use the sketchup component collection to get great and accurate models of all kinds of hardware. However, if you decide to be stubborn, feel free to use any 3D program you like. The Rules As this edition is all about letting your creativity run wild, we have decided to impose even less restrictions on entries then last time. Sadly, there still are some: Start your design from scratch. You are allowed to import a limited amount of models to fill your case with hardware, but the feature of your entry should be the case that you designed from scratch! No rendering! To keep the playing field even, we will not allow fantastic renders to enter, or even to be posted in this thread. Your entry should be screenshots of the actual 3D model ONLY. Final entries are to be announced in this thread. They should contain one main picture and up to 4 images from other angles to show off various features. Supplying the 3D model for download is also allowed. The deadline for your entry announcement will be april 1st, 12:00 AM (noon) GMT Voting will be done via Social groups. For further details on voting procedures, scroll down. Only one entry per person allowed To generate as much publicity for the competition as possible, we will use the 5 images of your entry to make a video presentation to be posted on YouTube. In case of a tie, both contestants will receive the same prize. Prizes will be shipped globally, so the competition is open to all! Feel free to post images of your progressing designs in this thread for discussion, but please keep it relatively clean. I hope the mention of "common sense" will cover the usual array of boring rules, so here goes: common sense, use it! Make MNPCTech your homepage. Or add to favorites. Or just go have a look, they have some great stuff! Have fun! We will be checking very strongly on this point, as rumours have come to our attention that one of the previous winners in fact faked having fun in order to qualify. Concider yourself warned! The Voting Since it looks like we will have more then ten contestants (the maximum number of options in a poll), i needed to come up with an alternative plan. It is based on the social groups functionality that was recently added to BT. This is basically it: After April 1st, i will create social groups for each contestant that entered in the thread. From that moment on, you have two weeks to get as many members of your social group as possible. The voting will be announced in one post, and formatted such that groups can be joined with one click from inside that post. Possibly i'll start a new thread for this. You can vote for a case by joining the group. you can vote on a maximum of three cases. If you vote on more (join more groups) all your votes will be deleted. You dont need to use all three votes by the way, and you cannot give them all to one guy either. I also appeal at the common sense rule again. This includes multi accounts, blank accounts coming from nephews etc, and all other forms of raud. Remember this is a community competition, keep things fun please! You are free to change your mind as many times as you like (leave group, join another). More details when we come up with them!
