Screenshot Design Competition - Round 3!
SCREENSHOT DESIGN COMPETITION
Round 3 has just begun with the exciting theme of Lost Cities of Mythador! Check out the announcement for details on the theme, mechanics, and how to participate!
Want to show off your design skills? Looking to build that citadel of your dreams? This is your opportunity!
In what I hope will be the first of many upcoming competitions and community events, Reverie is excited to announce its first Screenshot Design Competition! I think we can all agree that Dawn of Fantasy has a pretty amazing scenario design editor, and we want to put it to good use!
In this screenshot design competition, everyone is invited to set up an epic screenshot of anything related to the lost cities of Mythador (see the theme below). As this is a design competition, it is highly recommended that screenshots be designed in the DOF Editor; however, designers can set up scenes in one of the game modes as well. We're not strict and there's very few guidelines, so the main thing is just to have fun and to kick off the design community!
To inspire your creativity,

As this round requires more work than the average, we will not be worrying about deadlines until later down the road. So just work on an awesome town, and we'll check in for a progress update before announcing the deadline.
The theme of this round, as chosen by GPS51 (the winner of our last round) is The Lost City of X. Check the announcement for details.
What are the rules?
How do I take a screenshot?
Begin by setting up a screenshot in the Dawn of Fantasy Editor - Editor.exe in your game's directory folder.
Once set up, screenshots may be taken:
A Beginner's Guide to Level Design
A Beginner's Guide to Scripting & Cinematography
Obviously, there is much more to design than what we could include in two guides, so if you have any questions (such as how to cue unit animations), please post them in a new thread in this forum and our scripters and mappers will help you out to the best of their abilities.
How do I submit an entry?
Entries can be submitted one of two ways:
How will the winner be chosen?
After the deadline, all screenshots will be compiled and a public poll will be posted. In this poll, forumers, designers, and devs alike will be encouraged to vote for their favorite entry. We have no means of preventing designers from voting on their own entries, so I'd say everyone can just go ahead and vote for their own, if they wish, to balance things out.
The poll will last for three days, after which time the winner will be declared.
What will the winner get?
As if eternal glory weren't enough, the winner will receive:
The second runner-up will receive:
The second runner-up will receive:
Fellow designer andreicde will also be throwing in 70 influence points of his own, to be given to the designer of the entry most popular with himself and the developers.
Happy designing, and good luck! Please let us know if anything is unclear or if you want like help/suggestions on the design front. :)
Is there, hum,,, anything preventing me from entering? :P hmm.
Since I'm building up my own scen map is there a way I could upload the whole map if I wanted to?
Sorry, Joe, a three-year head start would be a little cheap. ;) Maybe for a later round. You could post something for inspiration though.
I'll talk to the folks at DOFH and see if we could share their download database for uploading scenarios and mods, though you would still need to register an accoutn over there.
Yeah I was thinking just the map for fun somewhere, help start the fan made map database. I expect I'll finish it after I get the screen shot I want :P .
I added an extra post about making sure the GUI is hidden for your cinematic.
Here's my official entry into the screenshot competition. If I can do this then I know there are lots of folks with more practice and skill out there so lets see those entries! I call it "Dwarven snowbirds in Brakental"
That is fairly impressive.
When I get the game, I will do what I can and enter.
Nice entry GPS! :D
I had a go too. Not for an entry or anything, but perhaps it will inspire others. :)
That's really cool. I love the different colors in the sky. How'd you manage to do that?
