The idea behind this comp came about because I noticed that most of the people I showed this to thought it'd be great to have a vxl of it and some even said they might have a crack at doing it. The object in question is a space cruiser, extremely large and it looks absolutely awsome. would be the prize of anyones collection and/or mod.

The pictures of the model can be found here

I honestly don't know how much interest this will get, so if you like the idea please state your support, and of course vise versa. If you intend on entering please say so.

Anyway, rules are as follows:


Judging will be held in 2 months time to give the entrents plenty of time to complete the craft

The auther of the vxl may nominate whether or not the vxl will be released after judging.

Judging will be final, arguing against the judges desisions will be ignored

You can use any sceme you like as long as the general architexture is the same (including windows)

The vxl will have to be at minimum, the size of the ACC form RA2 to be accepted into the comp as the intire idea is to make a unit that will make you apponent want to bring out the white flag and sqeek "mercy" when it flies toward there base. The larger the better.

Entries will be judged by the following umm things ;)

1. Size, The bigger the better. Max 15 points
2. Quality of the vxl. Max 25 points
3. Accuracy towards the shape of the original model. Max 25 points
4. How good it looks ingame, by itself. Max 10 points
5. same as '4.' exept when compared to normal units. Max 10 points
6. detail relative to size, the larger it is the more detail it should have, max 15

Judges will be myself and raminator

Prize will be a sig saying you did this and the boasting rights of having made such an awsome vxl

Edit: Turn-a-gamer has said he'll give $10 american through paypal to the winner (if he wins he keeps it :p )

Edit again: Just wanted to point out something, there will be atleast one entrent from the cannis forums entering, so if you've ever wanted to really hammer them at something here's your chance ;)

yes, but your making a vxl not modding ;) thing is your making it on freeware, and it is your own creation, so copyright doesn't apply

I've never tried to make voxels so I'm not joining. I just wondered what would happen if someone were to win who doesn't have Paypal ;).

Making money from modding IS illegal. Offering a prize for the winner of a contest...is NOT.

I'm quite surprised that a prize is being offered for a voxel comp tbh, unless someone really desperately needs that cruiser ;)

Id pay for LeftHand to release his Storm Tank voxel. ;)

That is one big cruiser, but it seems pointless to me. I mean, who is going to use it? A space craft wouldnt be in the atmosphere (game view) so...

$10!!!!! i don't even need that money. i mean, for the size and quality your looking for, i don't think $10 is going get you very far. $50 or $100, on the other hand.........

well mate, I'll just say this to you if money is the only reason for entering and it's not sufficiant then don't, personally the fact that I'd made what is possibly the best and biggest vxl ever would be enough for me

I disagree with the scoring criteria requiring 'bigger is better' up to 30 points. Are you going to weight the points awarded based on sizes submitted or are you going to have a cut off point where you say 'right thats big enough' (in which case entrants should be informed so as to not waste time scaling up unnessesarily)? Also, for someone using 3DS>VXL, all they need to do is to make sufficiently detailed model and then render it out as a voxel using the largest resolution that 3DS>VXL will allow and that the game can still use without dying and instant 30 points.

I think the 'look in game' should have 30 points whereas as size have 10 personally.
