Submit your screenshot before the 20th

Entries can be submitted before the 20th of July. Voting will take place during the two days after that, starting on the 20th.
Results will be announced on the 22nd.



What is this thread about?
The Continuous Screenshot Competition is stolen from AoKH, where it has been active and used for a 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 seventh incarnation, and you might be wondering why we need a new thread. This is because of thread corruption: The more posts a thread gets (over 2500), the more likely it is to corrupt, and I think it would be a big shame if we lost all the links to screenshots from the previous threads.

The rules
  • Previous categories may be used.
  • 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, borders and logos.
  • 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.

Taking and hosting your screenshot
You can host shots at:
You can make in-game screenshots with the following methods:
  1. Press the Print Screen button on your keyboard.
  2. Paste your shot into a program like Paint.
Or take a look at Mephiles' guide on how to take a screenshot.


Winners from earlier rounds
All previous winners have been uploaded to the gallery here.
You can also find a sub-album for first place entrants.

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

Best regards,
Your host,
Yeebaagooon

Nope. I did mine with AOMX, not AOMEE. Simply use a hero glow.

I couldn't figure that one out. Surely hero glow is too small for the effect you've achieved?
(Mine is good old fashioned mirror tower on AOM:TT)

I guess the "summer paradise" theme wasn't all that popular...

When will voting be taking place?

P.S.
Hey Yeebaagooon, awesome image of Arkantos chilling in the tropics; wish I was there.

Aw. I would enter, but I have no way of whipping up something decent in time for later today. It has been far too long since I tried the Age of Mythology editor.

Incidentally, Zenophobia, that is quite excellent and also frighteningly reminiscent of this one summer I spent in Mexico...

    Much as I enjoyed the other screenshots I really do think Greek Vista may be the most solid. The light effect looks stunning and it really does look like a setting sun over a (strangely desolate) Greek island.

    So my vote goes to Anraheir.

    Tough decision between Anraheir and Yeebaagooon, but I gotta give this one to:

    Greek Vista by Anraheir

    It depicts almost exactly what I first imagined when I read the theme.

    Also, too bad "Danger Zone" didn't catch on. Was looking forward to some interesting submissions, but I guess the theme was a bit too much of an "in-joke", haha!

    Sometimes I like to take screenshots. But only sometimes.

    Well, I suppose I shall have to step in.

    This is not very good; basically, I was experimenting with lightings and map elevation effects to get back into the screenshotting groove and picked the first approach that looked slightly better than puke. ^_^ That said, I do enjoy the particular lighting I came up with and intend to use it for something completely different later.

    The title of the screenshot is: Fredzilla. A reference that, no doubt, someone somewhere will get.

    Oh dear. I need so much practice to get all this rustiness out of my system. Do bear with me in the meantime. ^_^
