True, the voteing will be the great equalizer.
I'll see what I can make in an evening or something. Not promising anything great though.

in Mini-Competition: Tree Mapping Post #321546
I've thought of a few genuinely awful things a person can do with a tree. Think of the cubicles project, but in a tree.

Anyway, this one is much simpler and less open ended as you don't have to make an entire map. In fact, you map 90% less than the first mini-compo even. It'll also likely run shorter than Atom and I's colors compo. Plus it gives you guys something to play with while Atom and I are judging.

I may enter, as my idea would take only a few hours to make. But I knew ahead of time so I'm immediately disqualified... FUN TIMES!

Ok... I can't seem to fix this one.
I completely remade a sprite and it wouldn't be oriented with the hammer parameters. I'm on Steam HL too so this one is baffling me quite a lot.

Can you upload your sprite so we can test it ourselves. It might be a hammer version thing, BSP version thing, or WONHL thing, not sure how to debug this but I would check it out for you.

in Sprite mis-oriented Post #321436
Oh, I misunderstood your question.

You can normally orient a sprite that always faces the camera,
you can lock its Z-axis so it faces the camera but only horizontally,
or you can have the orientation be set by the direction set in its properties in hammer.

If you have any other questions, just let us know.

Use sprite fixer to orient a sprite.

This one really required a lot of creativity :/

It might have been better as a full compo but the compo itself was a little left-field. It had to have a bunch of rules to make sure things were in the common style.

Just post what you have. Any one of you could win something, otherwise you're just rolling over and taking it in the ass.

This is like turning in an unfinished homework assignment at school. Do you turn in what you have for a 30%-50% grade, or do you get a 0% because you don't want to experience any embarrassment?

This compo was actually a homework assignment I got in college a long time ago. I failed it so poorly that I left the class and went home. The stuff I've seen from TWHL puts everyone in that class to shame so man up and show your shit. Everyone should be proud of what they did, even if they just dabbled in it.

3ds Max 7
  • Insert a sky light, intensity at 0.5
  • Turn on Light Tracer in the advanced rendering tab in the rendering options.
  • Set a directional light (0.5 intensity also) with Area Shadows on at 0 shadow bias.
  • A back light for a little glare, no shadows.
  • Render.
A little exposure filtering in Photoshop makes it look like VRay. I didn't do that in the above picture because there's no environment.

These are all default render settings.

It's a real product. http://cleanmachineonline.com/
