Greetings, AoMH!

This thread is a brand new idea that has caught on extremely well at Spore Heaven, and was originally intended for this heaven. We are indebted to HealyWorks, who originally came up with this idea.

This is just for fun, this will be a knockout elimination tournament where participants will be given 3 days to create a screenshot that meets a certain randomly generated theme. There will be a large list of themes, and once each theme is used it will be removed from the list. You will be matched up with a randomly selected opponent to battle for a place in the next round. When everyone has posted their entries, the forum will open for votes. You obviously cannot vote for your own or your opponent's creation. More rules about voting will be posted at the appropriate time.

There are 16 slots here.

    Great screenshot by Hail, it deserved first place! I was really amazed how much you could actually "feel" the atmosphere and as always, how Hail handles the light in his shots. Also, congratulations to everyone who entered, and to Elrich for picking the brilliant themes.

    Sometimes I like to take screenshots. But only sometimes.

    Oh my gods! Hail changed his avatar!!!

    When people change their avatar after very long it gives a weird feeling, it's like when someone goes from long to short hair or have a transgender operation (yeah ok the second's a bad example)

    Third times the charm

    Thanks guys, this was a lot of fun, and Elrich had some really great themes.

    I like the tournament because it gives me motivation to spend those extra few minutes on a screenshot to squeeze out the extra details that can make the difference between good and great.

    Thobus, you really had me worried going into the last round. Your shots were all really great.

    If there's another one, I won't be getting in the way, so good luck!

    For the curious, This is what it looks like in the editor.

    They're there for special effects. They create an effect, and I remove the units immediately before taking the screenshot.
    The most ambiguous ones there are the cinematic blocks - some of those became footprints, and some because shifting sand out effect.

    Haha @ Thymole-. It's only a tiny part of the effort... I asked Hail how he did it and he sent me about 300 pages of technobabble. Mainly about timing triggers right etc. He is clearly mad. As he doesn't have TT he cannot just pause animations in the editor. So he has to do everything via well-timed triggers, trial and error.

    Thats intense
    I thought that kind of thing was pretty standard.

    Animations without animation viewer is not standard though.
    It didn't need 300 pages of explanation, honest :P
    For amanra's animation, I just animated her with the set animation trigger, with my finger on the pause key and paused as soon as it looked about right. Looked at the time, set a trigger to pause at that time and made sure it was still good. Keeping it a round number is good, but sometimes I need to go into ms. This time, 8 seconds was perfect.

    Then I built everything around that 8 second pause. I gave kemsyt approximately the right angle, and adjusted the time/angle until the wings were spread the way I wanted. (I started kemsyt's animation at ~5 seconds so that it lined up at 8 seconds), then I adjusted his position to hide the roc body and line it up with Amanra.
    That stuff was the hard part.

    The glows are easy because they are such a short animation. I knew I needed the screenshot at 8 seconds, so I had to start the glows at about 7.5 seconds. Only takes 1-2 tries to get the timing right. 7.5 Seconds I change into anubites, and 7.8 seconds I change the anubites (and valkyries (have I told you how much I love using them now? The wispy glowy stuff in the sky, and some of the stuff at the borders of the orange anubite births), and ragnarok heroes) into cinematic blocks, but the glow will still be there at 8 seconds.

    lol it isn't that hard, I made all my screenshots that way hail untill 2 months ago, when I understood how the animation viewer worked(Except for the fact for units' effects I would just make them mini, but for animations and SFX I'd do it via triggers).

    Of course now I realize how much it makes screenshots easier...

    And I love valkyrie's light effect as well

    The tournament shall be having a 4th run after Christmas - I'm away in the middle of December.
    If Hail can think of some themes, I'll contact him next month .

    Congratulations, Hail. You have made A.S.S.E.S. proud!

    And, SirThobus, you really gave Hail a run for his money. I especially loved your Defiance shot.

    Great round, everyone. I look forward to the next one!
