View Full Version : The Art of Modding: Competition Idea


Love2Raid
13-10-10, 23:44
Hallo!
:D

The previous modding competition has just ended, so ... itīs time for the next one! :jmp:
I have an idea, but I want to see how many people like it and would be ready to join.

The competition that I have in mind will be slightly different than the ones we had before. It will more about the process of the creation of a mod, and not only the mod itself. When you want to make a mod for XNALara, you start with an idea in your head, a design. What is the outfit going to look like? This could be a vague idea, that develops while you are working, but it could also be very clear from the start. After this, you need to think of the materials you are going to use to make it happen. Which mesh are you going to use as a base, are there mesh parts out there that you can use? This requires some mesh modding skills, but most of all resourcefulness. When the mesh is put together, itīs time for the next part: the textures. Do you have something from a previous mod that you can use? Can you simply edit the original textures, or do you need to make them from scratch? Finally, itīs time for the last part: the presentation.


So what am I even trying to say? :p
Itīs basically an XNALara modding comp like any other that involves both mesh modding as texture modding, except that you will share with us not only the final result, but also how you made it.

If you want to enter, you agree that you will


Think of a design/concept and present it. You can describe it in words, a picture (that inspired you) or even a drawing (if you insist, lol).
Create the mesh that suits this design and present it (a picture (Blender or XNALara with textures off)).
Mod the textures to make it complete and post the result as a presentation picture and download link.


Theme and rules
There is no theme. The rules are:

The entry must be new and made specifically for this competition.
You have to use an original Tomb Raider character as a base for your mesh mod, but can add as many parts as you like (just make sure the character is still recognizable as Lara or Natla for example).
You can use mesh parts provided by others but you MUST have their permission.
You can use textures made by others but you MUST have their permission.
You are allowed to use parts from other models, like shoes or hair (models from the recap thread).


Time span
I was thinking about one week to present the idea, two weeks to present the mesh and two weeks to present the final result. I wonīt be very strict about this, if someone needs more then that can be discussed.
Edit: Deadline for presentation of the idea extended to two weeks, mesh extended to three weeks and textures/final result to three weeks as well, to give people more time now that they can work in teams as well. So TWO months till the final deadline.

Number of entries
Only one. Because of this, I wonīt mind if there are any other modding comps running at the same time. :)
Edit: After XNAaraLīs suggestion, that a lot of people seemed to like very much, I have decided that you can either work alone, or work in a team. The team will have 2-3 members, but thatīs a guideline really, not a rule. If you want to be in a team, itīs your responsibility to form one and think of an idea together before the first deadline. There is now a maximum of TWO entries, one individual entry and one team entry (only one of each, no more).

I canīt mesh mod, can I still join?
Yes, of course! The problem is that you will be more limited in what you can make. You can decide to use a costum mesh (like AtlantiBīs art mesh), ask permission first. This could be an incentive to start experimenting with mesh modding, just donīt set the bar too high for yourself. An upside of this is that you will have two more weeks for the textures. :p
XNALara Mesh Modding Thread (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showthread.php?t=154890)
Combining Models with Notepad (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=4332345&postcount=27542)

Voting
Voting will commence after everyone got a chance to download the mods and take a look at them. Iīm not sure yet about the categories, but at least the mod itself and how well it represents the initial idea will be judged.


Thatīs about it. :o
I will open an entry thread if we get enough people who want to join. I would be happy to hear anything that is not clear about the idea or things you think should be different.

Thanks! Hmm...

Well, I donīt see why not. :D
But making them poseable requires some more work, so maybe we could put them in different categories for the voting. But it depends on how many static entries we get, I guess. :)

Yay! :D

If the static meshes would be allowed, yeah I might find some time to work on another model.

if they're based on lara it shouldn't be difficult to rig them, you can ask other people (including me too... perhaps) to rig them for you.

Just an idea or suggestion:

What is your opinion about teams. Two or more together to create a MOD. For example, a collaboration of Texture Painting, Character modeling, rigging ,animation (pose) and postprocessing (Composite or Retuche with Photoshop ...) ?

My question: Is it allowed teams, or just single people?

:ton:

I think it's good to know the teams before we open the competition, so spam each other with ideas!! :jmp:

Oh, I just thought that it would be best to allow an individual entry and/or a team entry, both optional. So you can have a minimum of one entry and a maximum of two (one team entry and one individual entry).

BlueJ97 approved of this. :hug:

It doesnīt really matter how many people are on one team, as long as every member contributes equally. You can decide whatīs most practical/convenient/efficient yourself, but I think 2-3 members will probably be the norm (just a guideline though, no rule). More people working on something doesnīt guarantee a good result.
@ Love2Raid

Yeah, you are right. I think 2 weeks will be better, especially when you consider we will have teams as well (makes decision making a little harder :p). We will also have more time to form teams (if you want to be in a team).

@Poker15 (forgot to quote post)
Excellent!! :D

This part of the entry will be posted before the first deadline, which will be 2 weeks from the start of the competition.

You will present your idea here and nothing more. It can be your own idea (if you work alone) or that of your team (only one member posts the entry).

It can be a description in text, a photo-manip, a piece of concept art, a drawing you found somewhere, anything really. Just make sure it doesnīt violate the T&C.

-----------------------

Individual Entry Part I: Idea
(Could also be Team Entry Part I: Idea)

I am going to create a HD version of the famous Janice, but she will wear a different outfit. I want her to wear a really short dress, long high-heeled boots and long gloves. All of a shiny, stretchy material. The look will be a bit cheap, really something that she could wear at work. :mis:
I still have to think of an accessory, perhaps a belt. And a cigarette of course. ;)

She will have sexy make-up and short, blonde hair.

-----------------------

This is how you can do it, it doesn't have to require a lot of work or have to be very complicated. Just make sure we have an idea of what you are going to do.

DON'T POST YOUR ENTRY HERE, THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE THAT I WILL USE LATER!

So that means i haz to upload some hairstyles i have there before i'm allowed to use them? XD

17-10-10, 20:54

Love2Raid
17-10-10, 21:16
This part of your entry will be posted before the second deadline, which will be 5 weeks from the start of the competition.

You will only present the finished mesh, make sure not to show any textures. For this, you can either use a screenshot of Blender or an image in XNALara (both with textures off). Show it from the front and side (at least). Also tell us which parts you used and where you got them. :)

Origins of mesh parts and credits

Original Lara Croft model by Crystal Dynamics, extracted by Dusan. The hair is from Ivy (Soulcalibur IV). I got the model from Vega82, it was originally ripped from the 360 version of the game by Noddy (Xentax forums). I put it on Laraīs head. The skirt mesh is by AtlantiB (art mesh), the top and belt are taken from the art mesh as well. The boots are made by Uwe Growlf and XNAaraL made them poseable for Lara. The gloves are made by me, out of Laraīs arms. :p


-----------------------

DON'T POST YOUR ENTRY HERE, THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE THAT I WILL USE LATER!

17-10-10, 23:16
This post will show the final result of your work and will be submitted before the final deadline, which is 8 weeks from the start of the competition. Please donīt post your result before the second deadline (of the mesh) to keep it fun! :)

Itīs not any different than the usual entry post for a modding competition, except that you have to put links to the previous 2 parts of your entry in the post.

You must add a download link and also please clarify if itīs poseable or static.

Donīt forget the credits (textures). It would also be great if you could tell what you think of the result, if you are happy with how it turned out. It would be cool if teams let us know which member did what.

Origins of textures and credits

The eye textures are by Zipper (edited). Vega82 fixed the textures of Ivy, I took the hair from it and made it blonde. The other textures are by me (and Crystal Dynamics of course :D).

I think it turned out just the way I planned, so Iīm happy with it. :)
Itīs poseable (as you can see, lol).

Modding competitions will never be the same again... :(
I was looking for a texture modding comp, because I have too much Blender every day, and I kinda have given up texture modding...
Anyway, I may participate if i'll find an idea..
Right now, I'm making 2 models (mesh and textures), so I don't know If I can be in the comp on time.
Also, I'm not sure I understand what I have to do here..
Do you want us to show, in general, a 'making of' of our model?
Also, since I see that static models are allowed, that means we can make an object too, and not a character? :eek:

Its Not a Request, its an Oppertunity for you Modders to use Other Characters from the Trilogy aswell for a change, we have 50 000 Lara Croft Models in Diffrent Outfits, so why not give the Other Characters a Chance aswell. ;)

There should be like a Competition for:
Alister
Zip
Natla
Amanda
Winston
Heck, even Anya

Zipper turned the Yeti Thrall into the Hulk

Hey daventry!

Yeah, using other models than Lara should be encouraged in my opinion as well, there are not many limits here. You could even use Kurtis if you wanted to, since he is from Tomb Raider too. ;)

That Alister is a perfect example of what an entry could look like! It doesn't have to be very advanced or anything, it's just for fun! :D
But it has to be something new. So if you can think of something that you could do (alone or in a team), I would say join the club! :hug:

Hallo!
:D

The previous modding competition has just ended, so ... itīs time for the next one! :jmp:
I have an idea, but I want to see how many people like it and would be ready to join.

The competition that I have in mind will be slightly different than the ones we had before. It will more about the process of the creation of a mod, and not only the mod itself. When you want to make a mod for XNALara, you start with an idea in your head, a design. What is the outfit going to look like? This could be a vague idea, that develops while you are working, but it could also be very clear from the start. After this, you need to think of the materials you are going to use to make it happen. Which mesh are you going to use as a base, are there mesh parts out there that you can use? This requires some mesh modding skills, but most of all resourcefulness. When the mesh is put together, itīs time for the next part: the textures. Do you have something from a previous mod that you can use? Can you simply edit the original textures, or do you need to make them from scratch? Finally, itīs time for the last part: the presentation.


So what am I even trying to say? :p
Itīs basically an XNALara modding comp like any other that involves both mesh modding as texture modding, except that you will share with us not only the final result, but also how you made it.

If you want to enter, you agree that you will


Think of a design/concept and present it. You can describe it in words, a picture (that inspired you) or even a drawing (if you insist, lol).
Create the mesh that suits this design and present it (a picture (Blender or XNALara with textures off)).
Mod the textures to make it complete and post the result as a presentation picture and download link.


Theme and rules
There is no theme. The rules are:

The entry must be new and made specifically for this competition.
You have to use an original Tomb Raider character as a base for your mesh mod, but can add as many parts as you like (just make sure the character is still recognizable as Lara or Natla for example).
You can use mesh parts provided by others but you MUST have their permission.
You can use textures made by others but you MUST have their permission.
You are allowed to use parts from other models, like shoes or hair (models from the recap thread).


Time span
I was thinking about one week to present the idea, two weeks to present the mesh and two weeks to present the final result. I wonīt be very strict about this, if someone needs more then that can be discussed.
Edit: Deadline for presentation of the idea extended to two weeks, mesh extended to three weeks and textures/final result to three weeks as well, to give people more time now that they can work in teams as well. So TWO months till the final deadline.

Number of entries
Only one. Because of this, I wonīt mind if there are any other modding comps running at the same time. :)
Edit: After XNAaraLīs suggestion, that a lot of people seemed to like very much, I have decided that you can either work alone, or work in a team. The team will have 2-3 members, but thatīs a guideline really, not a rule. If you want to be in a team, itīs your responsibility to form one and think of an idea together before the first deadline. There is now a maximum of TWO entries, one individual entry and one team entry (only one of each, no more).

I canīt mesh mod, can I still join?
Yes, of course! The problem is that you will be more limited in what you can make. You can decide to use a costum mesh (like AtlantiBīs art mesh), ask permission first. This could be an incentive to start experimenting with mesh modding, just donīt set the bar too high for yourself. An upside of this is that you will have two more weeks for the textures. :p

Combining Models with Notepad (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/showpost.php?p=4332345&postcount=27542)

Voting
Voting will commence after everyone got a chance to download the mods and take a look at them. Iīm not sure yet about the categories, but at least the mod itself and how well it represents the initial idea will be judged.


Thatīs about it. :o
I will open an entry thread if we get enough people who want to join. I would be happy to hear anything that is not clear about the idea or things you think should be different.
