Competitions for June 2010

Well, it has been an extremely long time since the last competitions. December of '09 was last. Same format will be used. TT is dead, or attempting to come back with the help of complete money stealing idiots. Join our vent for more info here:

1501-----------Famous Landmark

http://traceyconnolly.typepad.com/.a/6a010536008472970c01156f6ac85e970c-800wi

Replicate any famous landmark as closely as possible. The more detail, the better. Examples:

-Statue of Liberty
-Leaning Tower of Pisa
-Eiffel Tower

Pics and Dupe please. Remember, the better the pictures, the better chance you have.

1502-----------OmniCar Revisit

Like the title says, we are revisiting the OmniCar competition. The “car” must be able to traverse land, sea, and air. It must float like a boat, but is not required to dive. The catch this time is all forward propulsion and turning **(in the air and sea)**must be controlled with Fin Tool. Since lift is a little sketchy with fin, you can control the lift with thrusters and magic. Of course, if you can achieve lift with fins you score higher.

On land, propulsion still needs to be done with Fin, turning can be controlled however you would like.

Must be able to fit in a 3w x 3h x 4l PHX units. A course through gm_excess_waters will be released shortly.
I recommend some form of suspension on land

I don’t care what… I don’t care how you do it (Wire Magic mostly)… But something needs be created in an automated way. Make it as intricate or as simple as you like. Even a box factory would be ok.

Suggestions… Outhouse, Maserati, Fighterjet, wheelbarrow, functioning gear clock, etc etc

Besides… Like Boeing and gibbo said… Nobody enters anyway so the slightest effort might put you on top.

As with all competitions in this section you MUST build from scratch. NO RECYCLED DUP’S! Any presented evidence that your submission is old will disqualify you. Revising an old contraption/submission is also not allowed. No building in HAMMER! You are not only allowed but encouraged to build with one or multiple partners. Building entry’s for the competition in a TT server is not required but is encouraged. You must provide images of your submission and a Video is Recommended and MAY be required (check description). You can update your submission post as many times as you like (do NOT make another post) and keep in mind changes may be overlooked if you change nearing the end/judging of a competition.

how do you know if its recycled.

Competitions always fail no matter how well they are planned.

This.

yup, and what do you mean the omnicar has to be controlled by fin??? I would expect looking at the picture that having it controlled by the engine angles would be smarter

No wheels at all??? how can you expect an OmniCar to be a car if it can’t roll on the ground? Also, does the OmniCar have to be sitting in the water or can it hover above the water? Is it a requirement for the OmniCar to go underwater to reach any of it goals? These are questions I feel are important before I start to think about building for a competition.

I’d like to enter though. I already have some ideas on an anti-thruster OmniCar. I’m so glad I’ve been working on mech stuff lately. I have had to solve a lot of functional problems lately with the mech stuff that I’d like to try building something different.

competitions fail, youve seen it many times

FYI, I tried logging in to your server and the password is a fail! It tells me “bad password”. This sucks dude.

I’d like to take a stab at a pure fin angling engine nacelle omni car. I’ve done pure fin, I’ve done angling nacelle, it’s time to combine them. I’m not a fan of thruster and magic lift.

:what: you want a dupe?

Hmm, I guess I could try my hand at building a landmark. I have my heart set on the Brooklyn Bridge.

Look, these competitions actually turned out well previously. ZeosPantera and I usually make them and I am just posting them this time. By the way, I am fixing the password, it reset when the server restarted.

Updated OP answering questions.

When I say fin, I mean the Fin Tool. So, relevant to the picture, those engines can tilt, but inside the “engines” you would have a propeller made with the Fin Tool.

Hehe. I built it once as accurate as I could. It was actually suspended. Suspension bridges in gmod are pain in the ass because you have to make prop ropes.

A dupe of it just for the sole fact that someone could take a picture of one side of it, and the other side is completely unfinished. Kind of like the “myspace” angle. She could be hot on one angle, but really be some nast fat chick.

I never said it could not have wheels. I figured the word car just implied it had wheels. It must float, but it is not required to dive.

I’ll make a pyramid :v:

We know plenty of people that play in many servers and know lots of other people.

Move to the first post Zild.

actually, when you include a real prize like i did, they tend to not fail.

also i am digging the fin one

Why thank you. Have fun. If anyone has any questions or whatever, add me at steam: zild1221 (zildjiandrummer)

Updated OP

Yeah the landmark one would suck, only fools build bridges
