    !!! WMP Single Weapon Contest !!!

    <Updated 20040130>

    Grand Prize a 50 dollar gift card(or something like that, we apparently can't send cash or something, but dont worry, you will get that amount somehow).

    Second place is 25 dollars from Doc. Wong.

    Rules are as follows:

    1. Only 1 weapon may be submited by person or group. Only the first submited verson will be accepted. The entry must be previously unreleased.
    We want new content, not recycled old junk.

    2. The weapon will be open sourced, and will be sent in with decompiled source, and a working copy. We will look at the code, and part of it will be for judging. But all entries eligable to win will be put in a WMP pack and released. If we cant put it in the pack, you cant win, got it?

    3. Entries must be under a meg in size compiled and running(we want to keep the size of the WMP pack 56k friendly, come on, you dont need a whole meg for 1 weapon). This does not include the source required for rule 2.

    Unlike other competitions, substance over style. A nice model wont hurt, but we will be judging more on technical merit and clever coding than spectacular skins and perfect models (so you cant win if you've got a crap weapon using a pretty model ) We understand that its hard to stand out using stock content, but we also dont want a 90 meg zip for a singe weapon.

    Oh, and after the competiton, we dont care if you use that weapon on other mods, etc, we just want new content for the WMP pack. Note, we didnt say you cant use it afterwards.

    And Yes, we are flexable on the rules with in reason, if I am informed in advance.

    Once the Pack is released, the community gets 2 weeks to vote, then I make the final decision based on the community vote(I will probable go with it, unless theres some major flaw with the entry, etc{it is my money}). Doc. Wong will pick who he thinks his $25 should go too.

    Deadline date is the last day of Febuary.

    Now get cracking.

    Oh yea, 1 last thing. The contest will be cancled if less then ten (10) entries are submited.

    Please reply to this post if you plan on entering. I will look into raising the stakes, and if enought people ask, I will lengthen the deadline.

    Submission details. E-mail a working copy of youre weapon with instructions, and details on who made it to Postal0311@Boo.Net Also include youre decompiled source. Have the source ready to be compiled with the Package name WMPContest.u

    Allright, bad news, my e-mails down. I will update as soons as its working.

    Just to clarify some stuff:

    1) If its not obvious, you cannot 'cheat' and enter a weapon youve already made and put out. The idea here is for everyone participating to create something new for this weapon pack, not recycle old junk ;)

    2) Open source or not, were still gonna take a peek at your code. And dont think we cant, because we can :) But, to save us the trouble of 'haxoring all ur stuff,' please send entries with the uncompiled .uc's

    3) Unlike other more high stakes competitions, we would prefer substance over style. A nice model wont hurt, but we will be judging more on technical merit and clever coding than spectacular skins and perfect models (again though, they dont hurt, just dont expect to win if youve got a crap weapon using a pretty model ;) ) We understand that its hard to stand out using stock content, but we also dont want a 90 meg zip for a 13 weapon pack, ya dig?

    <Edited to remove redundent statements>

    Yes, Substance over style, I would rather see a cool new weapon using the AR model, then a perfect copy of a M16 with the AR code. We don't care if you're weapon is the Insta-Kill or a Super-Warp BubbleGun Blow-Job Gun; if its a spear or a Gattling Laser, we want something cool.

    Count me in. I got a model in the works, and with a bit of help from the WoD community, I think I might be able to get it ready in time.

    Mr. Mitchell, we are not going to be too picky, we just dont want something like, for example, the U4e Team entering the bubble gun, or . . . well basicly, if you released it previously for UT2k3, we dont want it. Ports are allright, in fact, if you want some good ideas, look at some of the old U1 mods.

    creating weapons would be more a task for a support role... and CiD's custom user title clearly states that he is on offense. ;)

    I'm in, I talk a lot about coding in the BuF coding forums, but it's about high time I did some stuff for people to look at.
