GAC Safari Planet Contest

I have been given the esteemed honor of creating the GAC Safari Planet Challenge, our first official contest in a while. In this contest, you will create a safari-type environment for the player to traverse. As always, prizes will be given out to the first, second, and third place winners.

___________________________________________________________________

Overview

This contest is all about the visual appeal of your world. You want to first come up with an idea for a scenic environment, whether it be alien or realistic. Then you'll want to build your ecosystem, making sure to include lots of natural visual appeal. When your adventure is done, people should be taken on a tour of the planet with plenty of sights to see along the way.

___________________________________________________________________

The Rules

There are a few rules that you need to follow for your entry to be qualified:

1. Your idea should be original. You'll have a better chance at winning if you use your own ideas rather than just using one of Parkaboy's Xenoplanets.
2. Your adventure should have no story. All that will happen is the captain moving through the environment, and nothing more.
3. Please, no swearing. That shouldn't really be a problem anyway, since there will be no dialogue.
4. Parts allowed: core spore, exoskeleton limbs, Creepy & Cute, and Galactic Adventures. No bot parts or Darkspore injection creatures.

Those are really all the rules. This contest is not very limited and there is a lot of room for creativity.

___________________________________________________________________

Judging

Since I'll be participating in the contest, we need someone else to judge the entries. The person who chooses to judge must not submit an entry and must be prepared to play through all the entries and give an unbiased opinion on which one is best by the deadline. The first person to post saying that they want to judge will get the job.

Judge of the contest: trembler95

___________________________________________________________________

Deadline

No deadline is currently set. Once at least three entries have been submitted, a deadline will be decided.

___________________________________________________________________

Prizes

This section will be updated as prizes are created. All I know is that the winners will each get a trophy creation. If you would like to create the trophies, let me know.

In addition, the first player gets comments and uprates from me on ten of their creations. Second and third place get five each.

___________________________________________________________________


Helpful tips

- Maybe it would be a good idea to have the captain sitting on a moving vehicle as they go through their environment. It might add a unique twist to your adventure.

- Be sure that you don't bore the player. Make sure to have enough stuff to look at so that it doesn't get too boring. However, make sure that there's not so much stuff that the player doesn't get tired of looking at stuff.

The prizes should also include comments and R+s!

You earn comments and uprates through having good creations, not by winning contests. If people really want to be uprated, they should ask politely or find a way to get noticed. Nonetheless, I will include those things as prizes because people are so motivated by them.

Adding that to the OP.

Also, I was thinking about making a thread for this on the Sporum to help advertise. Should I do that?

Comments are good, but I'm not sure about uprates.


Also, I have a problem=I have to put Spore on low graphics. If the player has high graphics, will my adventure be in high graphics, or will it still be in low (to the player, not me)?

The appearance of effects and props will vary depending on what graphics settings the player's using. So if you make it with low graphics and share it, and then a player plays it with high graphics on, it will appear with high graphics.

In other words, what Frostie just said.

I would rather not have people working on teams, due to the very low number of people who will be participating as it is. But if we end up with at least three entries in the end, then I'm fine with teams.

Remember, everybody, we still need a judge. If you think you won't have the time or motivation to make an entry, then sign up to be a judge.

I'll probably make an entry, if I have time between studying for exams and GroxQuest episodes.

I don't think I can judge, though. I'm not a very good judge of scenic environments.

Added "Helpful hints" section to the OP. If you have any ideas for helpful hints, post them and I may add them to the OP.

No dialogue? Is it okay to have dialogue to explain the habitats?

There should be no characters talking to you. If you want to include someone who tells you about the habitats, then that's fine. Just limit the use of speech besides that.

Actually, I don't think I'll be able to make an entry, but I would be happy to be a judge if you'd consider me.
