It's just as Raz said. If you've a clear descritpion of what is expected, you can start up work nearly immediatly - but the results would the more look alike, the more the description is close to the point.

So all you gotta do is come up with a good idea that you like.

Is it really this hard? You can dream about everything imaginable.

Examples: (Drugs, Sex, Flying, Nightmares, ...)

It's not the point to make everything look dreamy (what is dreamy anyway? sometimes its sharp, sometimes blurred) but to give the viewer the intention that this is a dream. (Comments may help here)

Hey, even a cube DM with a photo of your gf on the sides would do, coz you dream of her every night.

So again: get your ass moving, be creative! There are still 2 days left.

well, it seems like alot of people won't make it to the next round...
that is, unless we get a lot of stuff really fast.

hey, with all these people not submitting, I think my chances of going to round 2 are pretty good.

good, indeed.

everyone goes to round 2 , we're counting total score of a given number of rounds this time. I think we can count on some late-minute presets, some people tend to do it a lot. At least... I hope so

No, people are cut from it no matter how many people enter, the less people, the less time the tournament takes.

We are setting the length of the tournament at a fixed number of rounds(5, I believe). People can skip out on rounds, join in after the first round, or quit before the end. The winner is whoever has the highest cumulative total at the end of all of the rounds.

Nice work sidd... that guy really does look like he's plummeting to his doom... could have used some lower camera angles (side view for instance)... and him always falling down and never up from the perspective of the camera.. but hey.. thats just nitpicking. :P

The colours are great too... personally I'd say this is the best submission so far.

I'd like to remix this for my next pack if you have no objections.

Cheers J. XD

I did get rid of some of the rotation, ie, anything below the guy. But i wanted to leave it reasonably dynamic. Its hard to tell if i achieved the right effect when im the one making it.

Sure, remix to your hearts desire.

That is so cool Siddhartha! Especially the way his limbs drift back as the guy is falling, kinda like the tentacles effect (with a delay from the center, they lag behind) But that's UnConeD talking

Today's the deadline, which means new topic soon! Although I didn't think this topic was that bad, I still don't see what is so bad about it....

No, we gotta judge first(well, we did last tournament, anyways). I'll talk to ishan though, and see if we can get it out any earlier. Probably won't get it out at 12, but it's almost possible.

okay, this obviously isn't clear, since me and j got in an argument over it (fortunately jaak stepped in and started being a total ass, which fixed everything) - are people getting dropped this round or not? i say they should, i know i'm not participating in it if it isn't going to be a knockout tournament like it was supposed to be...personally i think if you missed the first round, tough cookies. but that's just me...

We decided by a general vote that this wasn't going to be a knockout tournament. People didn't seem to like the knockout tournament - if the first topic wasn't a good topic for them and they made a crap preset, then they could be dropped even if they would have been capable of beating the pants off people in the next rounds. This way, people who may not like the certain theme(you, for instance) still are in good contention, because other people probably won't like the next one. Letting people in after the first round is fine too, because they will have the disadvantage of having not gotten any points for the first round. The winner(s) of the tournament are not going to be selected on average score, but their cumulative score. People who miss out on this round will be behind by a maximum of 30points(if Doggy_Dog is judging as well). That's a severe hinderance to them, but if they do really really well in the next rounds then they could catch up. This method is also better to use in a tournament of this size. In the last tournament, despite its smaller size, we had to hold off on the next round to wait for people on vacation. In this competition it allows for people to leave without us having to wait for them - they get penalized some(although we will still try to get them into the round if it isn't a big difficulty - we did wait for you), but it could become insane if we didn't. Also, with 2 weeks for each round, they would have to be on a LONG trip to not be able to submit anything.

If you don't want to continue in the tournament, then don't. It doesn't make sense to me, but do whatever you want to do. We would like to keep you in it, but we can't change any major rules that we set up before unless everyone agrees.

I'm in the mood for AVS, but I'm waiting for the next round to start, so I have nothing to do but sit here and wait for the next topic. I could work on my pack, I suppose, but I can't work anything out with my presets right now, just having one of those days, you know?

hah...i've got just the preset for this one /me will finish it up this week

and yea anubis now that you put it that way i see how it'd work...the reason i wanted it to be a knockout tournament is cos i wouldn't last 'till the last round, and school starts on tuesday (and i'm taking some heavy ass classes). so i might drop out of the tournament anyway...

btw i hate this topic too, it's as lucid as the last one (), but i already have a preset that fits it perfectly...does it count?

This topic is pretty vague too... couldn't we have topics like 'glowing' or 'pulsing' or something that describes a certain type of preset? Not that I'm complaining... this ones a good opportunity for me to knock up some abstract 3D DM/SSC geometry.

Yay! I got 20 points . Don't worry Ishan, you're doing a great job. You should be proud of doing it. Though indeed this topic is also kinda vague. Try making topics like they were in Tournament 1. That were topics which really pointed to a certain style. Oh well, at least I think you're doing just fine. Keep it up!
