The Continuous Screenshot Competition 2

Could Firefax please post the new theme?

Indiana Jones Winners:


  • 1st Place: The Well of Souls by Elrich
  • 2nd Place: "It's bound to be booby trapped" by Firefax
  • 3rd Place: Don't bring a sword to a gunfight by HailToTheOboe

    The theme for the current screenshots is: Indiana Jones and entries can be submitted till the 19th of April, voting for the two days after that, starting on the 20th. Voting will be announced.

    What is this?
    The Continuous Screenshot Competition is stolen from AoKH, where it has been active and used for a very long time. It is to promote screenshots, and also to just have fun looking at and making the scenery. Each time there will be a theme in which the screenshot should fit, the winner of last theme is allowed to pick the new one. If a winner wins for the second time in a row, the number 2 is allowed to pick the theme. This thread is its second installment, and you might be wondering why we need a new thread. This is because of thread corruption: The more posts a thread gets, the more likely it is to corrupt, and I think it would be a big waste if we lost all the links to screenshots from the first installment.

    The rules
    • No category may be used twice.
    • You may only enter one screenshot per category.
    • The previous winner can compete in the competition he set the theme for, this is a form of trust, so be honest.
    • Please do not suggest themes for the winner.
    • No altering of screenshots, except for adding text and borders.
    • Modding is allowed.
    • Both AoM and AoM: TT screenshots can be used.
    • You are not allowed to make screenshots from maps created before the competition, but you can use the map for something else after taking the screenshot.
    • No flaming, but constructive comments are allowed.
    • Everyone is allowed to vote one time per competition for one screenshot.
    • The winner of the last round may pick the theme for the new one, he can also add an extra restriction.
    • If same person wins in twice in a row (or more times), the runner-up may pick the new theme.
    • You cannot vote for your own screenshot.

    Time between the competitions
    We have one week for the competition followed by 2 days to vote, after that the winner can post the new theme and we can start again.

    Tips
    You can host shots at:
    You can make in-game screenshots with the following method:
    1. Press the Print Screen button on your keyboard.
    2. Paste your shot into a program like Paint.

    Winners from earlier rounds

    Nice shot! I see we both like using tilted tamarisks :}
    Even I used tilted tamarisks. It is usually a good idea because the branches are 2d and you can barely see them unless you tilt them.

    Shraze may I suggest something. The corner of the map usually is a bad idea unless you can make it look like there is a horizon. Most people would also render a sky box.Maybe put some flowers in(personal preference really). I understand that this is a night scene so what I would do is make the edge of the map as high as you can go. Make the terrain black where you heightened it and then put armor glow spc all over the black to make it look like stars in the sky. But if it would be an effects based style your going for I would also put some mist on the edges and healing light sfx.

    Please can someone update my shot that's the old one that's up.

    I call it "The Lava Guardians"

    Some things for you all to think about by Fusion_Ghoullie:
    When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.
    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling.
    The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.
    It's 11PM, do you know where your pants are?

    Elrich, the resolution on mine is 1024x768, however the cinematic mode bars make it smaller. I could've taken them out, but I didn't really have much of a use for all of the extra space it would open up.

    When I started the shot I wanted to do it zoomed out to 1000 (max allowable in Reyk's editor) to get insane resolution with the brush tool, but the lag was unbearable, so I had to settle for 500 - which still lagged but I could manage. Terrain mixing is easier when each brush stroke is so small

    SoV, I tried a few things for the trees in the foreground, but they all just seemed out of place and looked more like an enormous tree in the valley rather than a tree closer to the viewer.

    Dang, nice shot Ghoullie. Those titans are sweet looking!

    Thanks for updating! Ghoulie it's nice.Nice use of stoning and animation+lightning+underworld explosion. The only problem is that the lava doesn't look real because it's flat.Make the lava stand out from the terrain and it will look really nice. The floor looks a little plain too. I recommend some stalagmites.

    Thanks for the vote!
    I would have told you to add that objects that looks like fire sparks(forgot its name) to the bonfire, But it is a little to late for that I guess.

    As I already stated before, The guy Is sitting on a cliff edge wth his spear in his hand(outside the frame)! It is not a "big foot shot with a random spear in the air".
    grrrr... *Mixed expression of anger and laughter on his face*

    I will vote for you If baske goes too high on votes And if you have less than me. If not, My vote goes for Fusion Ghoullie, Again only if he dosen't have many.

    You forgot to update "the new theme is: Hawaii" into "Please start voting!"

    Great to see the idea is paying off. Thanks AoKers for doing us this favor of providing us with votes. I'm sure I will return the favor

    My vote goes to Hawaiian Inland by Lazy Warhero. Simply a stunning piece of work, every single thing in there looks natural. Well done!
