Thanks all!

Heya!

I'm new around here, but the recent newsletter on challenges caught my eye -- I love challenges! I'm such a newbie to 3D that I know I haven't a chance, but the important thing is to try, right? And learn!

If it's ok, though, I've got a couple of questions: My instructors in school are pretty strict that "low poly" characters are ones under a thousand polygons. Is that the case here, or should another number be shot for? And is it ok to try for more than one discipline?

Thanks for any info! Totally awesome choice of a theme, there are so many things you can do with it!

Hi Nightsong, welcome to the forums!

About the low-poly competition, the specs can vary between the competitions. Just have a look at the announcement thread for the competition. This month, the spec is 10k triangles maximum.

And yes, you can enter in more than one discipline.

I've been out of the forum a couple of months, and when I come back...wow!

Loved the new look, all seems to be much easier to find and walk around, and this new challenge mode is awesome! Thanks for taking the forum to a new whole and enjoying level 3DTotal staff! =D

Hi 3dtotal team congratulation for the new revamped look , the contest topic is great and the prizes are superb, but I have a question:
Is the same process of member voting is there ?because if it is same I am sure me and any new member is not going to win on get any position as if we see some last contest and the votings we can prominently see some few names voting each other and has been voted blindly may be by some other fictitious members.
I hereby request the team 3dtotal to keep a clean and transparent system of judging may be 50% by votes amd 50% by a jury of experts from the industry.
And please change this bar of 10hrs for speed-sculpting because I really doubt how many submissions are done truly following the time line or may be put some more transparent method of judging the timeline.
I know its easier to suggest then bringing the things in place but pls give it a tryu so we find more new people winning or getting at least remarks.
I apologize if I hav hurt anybody's feeling but I told what i felt.
Thanks All

hey guys, great job on the new look. Great improvements overall. The on thing I'm concern about is that I feel like I'm loosing 8 hours because of the PST to GMT conversion. I wont be able to work on it at all Monday the 30th. Does anyone else feel like this will be an issue?

I can and will bust my ass trying to get this done by Sunday night the 29th but it sucks to not have that extra 8 hours on Monday. Oh well...

We are planning the voting system now and it seems like our favourite method is indeed a split between some forum voting and then a panel to decide the overall positions, but as I say still to be decided 100%

Im not quite sure I follow, but some prizes will be changing each month and others will be offered in different categories too

We have to have some global ending time and if it is the last hour of each month every time then it keeps things simpler. I appreciate the timing is unfortunate for you this month, sorry about that but I htink its best to stick with this system.

Thanks Tom

Hi Tom, just a question. When will be opened the Final submissions thread ? Because it's only 3 days to go. Maybe not all people can be connected to the forums day 30.

Edit:Ok, I've just seen that they are already opened, except speed modelling final submissions.

just an ordinary idea, would it be possible to compile in a pdr or similar the final entries or the winning ones at least - so we can have like an archive or all/winning work in one place - what galleries were used to be before, but now on a more higher scale.

hope it wouldn't be too much work
