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.

    You can attack cinematic blocks??
    Oh, I seem to have misunderstood. Sorry

    No, one cannot attack cinematic blocks, at least not ingame. I haven't tried using the Unit Work trigger for this effect yet, though. But most probably, it won't work.

    I still have the feeling that most of these entries would be better off in the Light vs Dark theme...

    Here's one. Don't even bother critisizing terrain mixing etc. If you do, you don't understand the shot.

    I sorta see it, the scenario designers are creating super units and god powers to fight with. It wasn't too obvious though. What I would have done is have the scenario designers using a mythodea like spawning sustem.

    This is my signature. I wasn't feeling enthusiastic enough to write something witty. Sorry everyone, sorry.

    The supremacy players are creating Hoplites and Toxotes to fend off an army of strong/supereffective units and their cloned tornadoes, which represent the scenario designers. The reason that the map is so flat, is because the (superior ^_^) scenario designers are invading the boring landscape of regular RM players. Am I right?

    Ingenious idea. Although, I still think you could have added at least some rocks. It was a very neat effect, though.

    its a good concept but it wasn't exactly hard to make on your part.

    The map itself was just a seed map of anatolia. So that wasn't much work. However, it was time consuming setting up all the animations and catching the right shot while god powers were invoked. I didn't do as well as I hoped. . If only I could have spoofed chat in the editor, then it would be funnier.

    I never asked for this.

    Here's my entry, you have no idea how F'ing annoying the lag was when I was making this shot...

    And Baske, nice big battle

    That's an epic shot, Baske. Yeah I can imagine the lag..

    Hail, what a great space battle! I can see Ackbar with his big fat fish head in his admiral's suit with his wiggling lips slopping out those words. I especially like the kraken pic in the dialogue.

    I haven't started mine yet. I have an idea, though, I'll see if I can come up with some new (for me) trick this time.

    I wanted my shot to stretch from one side of the map to the other, but the lag on that shot was SO huge, it just took away all the fun in making the shot.

    Sorry, but I just invoked regular tornadoes.
    I'll use your cloned ones maybe sometime.

    @Chaos, check the time the shot was taken the lag was getting very annoying, getting the correct pitch was hell, I didn't feel like adding any more details

    But yeah, you're right, blood is missing
