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
    All previous winners have been uploaded to the gallery here.

    Current Competition Entries

    Lets hope for a fun and fair competition, and good luck to all entries.

    Best regards,
    Your host,
    Paperfriend.

    Yeh I wasn't sure whether to vote for alex's shot because those top view 2d shots don't feel like aom to me. But because it was such quality and looked pretty amazing I voted for it. I probably will never vote for a 2d shot ever again.

    I feel sorry for brightgalrs, he was the first one to make a "gold" screenshot, which was then copied by a thousand other people and so his original shot was not appreciated. Ah well, I still like Elrich's better ;D

    Vote: Elrich
    posted 09 March 2008 06:47 PM EDT (US)     1478 / 1885  
    Elrich did a good job but there was too much gold themes so i didnt vote =(
    I guess that's a good reason to allow captions on the screenshot itself, mine wasn't about finding gold, but you'd have to read the original post to know that.

    @Survivor Fo

    I suggest that you setobsuredunits and crop out the editor bar, because they kinda ruin the screenshot

    Another rough competition.

    I'm kind of having a dilemmatic situation here, upon choosing between Elrich's and Eyecandy of Doom's. EOD's shot has a sheer of beauty in it, while Elrich had a more brilliant idea, so out of the two, I vote for Lucky Map! by Elrich.

    The lighting is wonderful. I just don't like how you have a titan cow.

    Cows are actually that big. The other cows there are baby cows.

    Cows aren't nearly twice as big as humans...

    posted 09 March 2008 11:47 PM EDT (US)     1487 / 1885  
    They are around here. They breed them to be huge. Plus in the shot your comparing to a hunchback oldman. I guess I could of made them a tiny bit smaller so that everyones happy.

    I vote for Alex, not only because of his orginal screen shot but because he picks really good themses.

    I don't know why I keep coming here, I don't even have a chance of winning.

    Firefax, you have a much more bigger chance of winning than I have, I rarely get votes.

    Winning's not everything, you know.

    And in this competition, if you don't win, that doesn't mean you're a bad designer. It just means that someone else did a little better than you this time.

    But; do not let that get you down. Instead, let it inspire you.



    Sweet baby maizes!

    I was let down by that in the past, but since I'm back again winning isn't everything and most people hate it when they don't get a vote.

    We hope to have a link to this thread over at AoKH as soon as our host sees to it. The voting activity has increased dramatically in a few weeks

    My vote goes to eyecandy of doom. A lush green, marvelous shot!

    I vote: Who Shall Fire First? by eyecandy of doom

    Did I just vote for EOD twice in a row....?

    I also really liked Firefax's shot because it had for me a real Indiana Jones feel. Like he just discovered a lost Egyptian city. The building/object choices had good consistency and the view from over Indy's shoulder was just right.

    @Lazy: thanks for the mention...

    I can't wait until the new rules go into effect next round. I still think we should try to work out some kind of team effort...

    I think I will vote for FireFax's "Out Of Sheer Luck".

    Very nice shots, everyone.
