Emm.. you want 80's but you don't allow suit jackets and trousers?

I'm also willing to add hazardous for 3rd place in clothing.

Thank you for pointing this out. Allowing jackets is probably a good idea now that I think about it. Trousers are allowed as long as you make a whole outfit. Keep in mind that you don't gain an advantage by making a whole outfit, however.

 

Added the Hazardous to the prize list, thank you.

I mean, just say gosh darn it and include all clothing items. I don't get the restrictions as a designer. If you're doing clothing, why not give bonus points for a entire outfit that is well done?

Also, i'm not exactly entering... But i just want to show off some off Retro style stuff i did once.

Definitly not where i'm best, but at least I had fun trying to recreate Shape of You by Ed Sheeran in an 80's Synthwave style.

 

So here's my submission:

 

 

(I also have a 10 seconds version but that wouldn't be fair towards other participants)

I only now noticed. So female characters DO have a hoodie with hood down. I always wondered why it specifies ''hood up'' if there is no ''hood down'' version (for male characters).

Due to not having enough participants, I have decided to extend the event by 2 weeks. If I don't get enough submissions by then, I will have to cancel the event. 

New date: 14th of May (14/5).

i did a race event with just 8 enters (delayed just 3 days due to inreal busy of partecipants), and the first prize was 1milion apb$.

cancel an event is always a bad thing.

 

not cancel.

or at least gift something to partecipants that invested time for boost the event.

 

there are 2 enters for Symb, 3 for Music,4 for Dress,and 1 for Car.

 

the music enter are the most rare and important imho.

You said there were some other PM participants. I know I posted mine and I think Queen posted her's too but are there any more PM participants? The way I see it, it is a pretty cool event with quite impressive rewards so I am a bit surprised that only so few have posted submissions so far.

My guess is it's up to promoting the thing, cuz very few members check this subforum.

I have to agree with Queen of Love , cancel the event is a bad thing and also changing the rules after the event date as ended. Everyone should post here not sendind pm's. Its just my opinion. Players took time to make the things to enter the contest. Take care all and have a good day everyone.

The reason as to why I am choosing to extend it instead of just giving away rewards, is that there would no real challenge to it. It's a contest, not a giveaway. Anyone who participates pretty much gets a legendary at this point, which isn't my intention at all. Work hard, make something nice and get rewarded. I was clearly way too optimistic about this contest.

No to me rude but some of the entries I have seen seem kinda half patootie:ed for a lack of better words, just so they can get in too the event and get a legendary of, of luck that no one finds the time to post/make a better one that actually deserves the reward for creativity. And not some 5 min put together that look mommy.

And......?

Whats the point?

An event is always a giveaway, simply just for the most valuable participates.

 

If in an Olympionic final battery 5 athlets on 8 are cold there are not substitues, the run begin and nobody cares about 3 medal for just 3 athletes.

 

However you are free to cancel the event in anytime. If there are few participants is not participants fault.

Agreed. You can't blame yourself for being optimistic about the event, Mel. And we can't blame the participants for being the only ones to participate.

 

Don't blame it on the sunshine

Don't blame it on the moonlight

Don't blame it on the good times

Blame it on the boogie

 

(Blame it on the forums)

Comparing this event to an olympic competition is far from fair. I don't have sponsors and all of these rewards come out of my own pocket. 

 

Also here's the definition of a giveaway.

Due to issues with some of the judges not being online we have decided to postpone the announcement. No exact date has been set but expect it to be before the end of this week. Keep your eyes peeled.

Alright,

After speaking to all the judges we have decided to not cancel the event, but to rather change the different rewards. I'll be listing all of the entries below with your rewards and a motivation as to why we did/didn't choose you. 

 

Sameriah

As soon as I saw your symbol I just knew you were going to win or at least get one of the top spots. It screams Retro Wave and all of the judges including me absolutely loved it.

Spoiler

 

PatrickBatemann

Your theme sounded really smooth and well made. The combination of the 8bit 25 and the Simon Tran Harp sounded really unique. Well done.

Spoiler

 

GodDamnIt

Your submission was really different and out of the ordinary, but me and the judges digged it. Good work.

Spoiler

 

Aggression

Unfortunately I can't accept your submission for clothing as you didn't take the screenshot inside the editor as instructed. Great work on the symbol/themes nontheless. 

 

Queen of Love

Neither me or the judges saw how yours was Retro Wave-themed at all. We're terribly sorry for wasting your time but please read the instructions better next time. 

Spoiler

 

MasterHiTecAssassin

The judges were not too keen on what you created but we appreciate the time and effort you put into your outfit. We'll be rewarding you with 300k for your work.
