No, the contest for January ends in about 15 hours. :) You made it in just under the wire, and great entry! I'm impressed that you managed to get that done in such a short timespan. :D Now I just need to round up the judges and get the other ones finished, so we can judge this one too (I've fallen... rather behind on that, but I plan on getting it straightened out in short order). I'm very happy you posted! :D Maybe we'll see another entry before the deadline, too.

Player three has entered the game!

Who dares wins indeed, that made me cackle :twisted:

Oh, and I shamelessly reuse assets all the time, don't worry about that!

Incredible work Serendipitous.

Were those planets in the background also made by you?

Heheh, thanks! :twisted:

Yup, they're both by me. The barren planet is simply a sphere using the mighty 'Lunar' bump function and some tinkering with the material.

The desert planet is a bit more complex, with one sphere covering the surface, two for the ice caps (though they're practically non-existent), one for the cloud layer and another (volumetric) sphere covering the atmosphere.

If you want to have a read, this linkee is a nice tutorial using an older version of Vue. I'm using 2016 Complete these days, but I used to work in Vue 8 Esprit.

Is it possible to ask for an extension of one or two hours for the deadline? I'm nearly finished but I still need to cut and mix the vocals.

Sure, if it's just a couple hours. :) No issue. Go ahead and finish.

:mrgreen: <- happy CSE

HS, wonderful, as usual. The model is incredibly detailed!
Thesleeves, very nice shot. I love the broken look to the ship - this is still beyond my skills.
Zennofska - don’t worry, we are not that strict with deadlines here (are we, Talv?)

The game is on!

I am very happy that we'll have four entrants this month! That pleases me very greatly. :D I'm working on getting one of the previous months judged right now. I'm going to get caught up on this one way or another. I still have all the keys as before, so I'll be able to give out the rewards properly.

Welp, there is my entry.

Due to time constaints the lyrics are quite shit, with botched pronunciations and wonky text. I am at least happy with the actual song, though.

Fun fact: For this song I used an (emulated) amiga as an synthesiser, transmitting data from FL Studios via a virtual midi cable to the tracker program on the amiga, the sound output was then routed back into FL Studios. This allowed me to apply effects semi-live with a second latency on the amiga output and quite simplified the whole process. It had been a pain to set it all up, though. The bridge part in the middle is played by the amiga alone, with only minor effects added to the sound.

Anyway, I had lots of fun composing this :D

EDIT: In hindsight, tiredness and a shortage of time is a bad combination, the "lyrics" I came up are even more awful than I first thought.
I even managed to confuse iron with copper in my stupor...
...
as a Chemist.

Excellent!!! :lol: Two new entries just in the nick of time! I love you guys. :thumbup: Very, very awesome. :D I've locked the thread, and I'll get the next one up soon. In the meantime, I've distributed score sheets to the judges, so we can finally work on getting those other contests finished.

Was messing around the other day and rendered/comped out some fun stuff that made me think of LT. Not a "Hurry up, Talvieno, and get the next contest up!" post. Just some shinies to help bridge the gap until the next batch of content from the Josh, Adam, Lindsey consortium. Hope you enjoy...

That's some cool stuff right there.

This post, however, is a "Hurry up, Talvieno, and get the next contest up!" post :twisted:

Nice Work :D

So I guess we can count on you for creating ship mods when LT is released, eh?
