Hey everyone! So, we’re wanting to organise a consistent and hopefully fun Qubicle competition that runs from now until whenever @SteveAdamo and I have made enough money to move to that tropical island we’re gonna buy. For all of this to happen, we need to set up all the rules and everything to keep things running smoothly. I’ll try to keep this as brief as possible
The Qubicle competition itself will run on a weekly basis in a 4 week cycle. Each week will have a specific theme or topic (that the community will also vote on in a separate thread) around which you will submit your model. Everyone will vote for the models they think are the best by ‘liking’ the respective post, and at the end of the week the top 2 entrants (might change in the future) will earn themselves a place in the week 4 finals.
As such, the first three weeks of each cycle are open to everyone, however as mentioned above the 4th and final week of each cycle will only be available to those who placed in the top 2 positions from the previous 3 weeks. This will make for a possible total of 6 entrants going into week 4 of the competition. The voting and submission of models for this 4th week are exactly the same as the other 3 weeks. You will only be allowed to submit one model for each week.
Each week will begin on Sunday, with model submission ending the following Saturday. Voting will close on the Sunday when the winners will be announced. Shortly after this, the following week will be open for your models!
Each Qubicle competition runs over 4 weeks. Comprising of weekly stages each with it’s own theme or topic chosen by the community.
You can only submit one model per week.
The first 3 weeks are open to everyone. The 4th and final week of the competition is open to the top 2 from each previous week. Depending on how much activity we generate this might increase.
The model can be anything related to the theme, as long as it can be achieved with the free version of Qubicle - no post-production effects, animations, etc.
Vote for models you think are great by liking the respective post. Currently we are not looking to limit peoples voting. Depending on how things progress, this might change in the future.
Make sure your model is relevant to the theme, any that aren’t will unfortunately not be accepted.
Keep all discussion on the weekly models, competition, and everything related to it, in the designated weekly discussion thread. Comments in the model submission thread will be moved across to keep everything tidy.
Prizes: Yes there will be prizes.
Courtesy of @Tim over at minddesk, the overall winner of each cycle will win the ‘Home’ edition of Qubicle constructor. If that person already owns the ‘Home’ edition then they can receive either the ‘Master’ edition upgrade, or the ‘Voxelizer’ software.
You can also expect things in the way of games, possibly specific forum titles, a place on the Qubicle competition hall of fame, as well as a couple of other more secret ones
