EGGS! Design Furniture for the Game 2017 - Winners announced! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote



It's Time To Design Egg Furniture!
Hard Boiled, Soft Boiled, Hard Scrambled, Soft Scrambled, Sunny Side Up, Over Easy, Over Medium, Over Hard, Poached, Baked, Basted, Fried!

Winners!

The wait is ova! Here's your chance to design Eggs to become furniture items in the game. We need you to design us the most awesome Eggs you can, and we'll be picking out the best designs to put into the game. Remember that you have to design the flat square design that will then be rendered onto an egg shape - you don't design a finished egg-shaped design.

Post your entries in the Entry thread here

-- Include your design in your entry post as an image, using image tags .
-- Images must be 256 x 256 pixels
-- Images must be .png format
-- Include pirate name and ocean in your post
-- If you have a preference on whether your egg (if chosen) is purchaseable or unpurchaseable, make sure to mention this as well or we'll choose for you! (Please note that the arrrtists reserve the right to make the final a ruling in this matter.)
-- You can enter up to 8 designs each. These must all be in a single post - edit your post to change or add designs.

To post an image:
-- Save your image at the correct size as a .png image on your computer
-- Upload it to a website - either your own webspace, or use one of the main free sites such as imgur.com, imageshack.com, photobucket.com, etc, and get the url for the image on that site.
-- Ensure that your image is not in a private area that requires log-in to view. Get a mate to check they can see it with your url.
-- In your entry post, enclose the url in image tags as shown here and here
-- PREVIEW BEFORE POSTING - if the image isn't showing on preview, check your url and tags.
-- Remember to add your pirate name and ocean before posting.

Other rules and guidelines:
-- You should submit original work - this means that you have to create the design yourself. References to copyrighted intellectual properties should be excluded from the entries . You may use reference materials for your work, but if you base your work substantially on a reference, please acknowledge it in your forum post. You do not need to acknowledge any game art used as reference material.
-- Your design should be able to 'wrap' - this means that the two sides of the design should join up seamlessly with no discontinuity where the two sides meet. Test this by laying two copies of your design side by side and check if it has an unsightly seam running down the egg. Please note that while we encourage artists to present seamless designs, a seam is acceptable as long as the egg looks good when rendered. If you are unable to make a seamless design no matter how hard you try, submit the entry anyway if you feel your design is good!
-- Remember the shape-changing effect of putting your design round an egg. A design that looks sensible in a square template could look strange on the final egg model. Keep in mind that your design may be rotated for the final egg.
-- The scene also really burns out the details, so make the whole thing slightly darker than you would think. Slightly!
-- Keep it simple. The design has to work on a relatively small object, make sure your design shines through.
--This YPPedia page shows the winning Easter eggs since 2006.
--Make sure to check the second post for "Tips and tricks and links and things"!

The deadline for egg designs is Thursday, March 2nd, 2017 - 11:59 PM game time.
If yours is one of the winning designs chosen, your prize is to get your design created as a bit of in-game furniture, and you'll be given a couple of eggs in your design and the Gilded Egg trophy if you don't already have it.

Go forth and lay eggs!

Tips and tricks and links and things:

These links are included not just as a reminder of previous entries, but also because the threads contain a lot of useful information, and probably answer most of the questions that are likely to come up this year!

2015: event thread -- entry thread -- entries flat version -- entries rendered versions -- 2015 rendering test thread -- People's Choice Easter Eggs!

2007: event thread -- entry thread -- entries flat version -- entries rendered versions -- 2007 rendering test thread
2006: event thread -- entry thread -- entries flat version -- entries rendered versions -- 2006 rendering test thread

TUTORIALS!
-- YPPedia Egg Design page
-- YPPedia Helpful art tutorials and resources

RENDERING!
In previous years, there have been kind folk willing and able to host a "Test Rendering Thread", which allows people who don't have access to appropriate software the chance to see their designs rendered and tweak them before deciding their final entries. Review the rendering threads from previous years so you can see the designs that were tested before being finalized - take a look - it will give you lots of ideas for what works and what doesn't!

-- Hopefully we will have a rendering test thread soon!
-- If you want a copy of the basic egg mesh file, you can get it from YPPedia here, or link to the file directly here. It's linked from Egg#Competition_files . You can use this if you wish to test your design and you have a 3D modeling program. Note that you do not need to do this to enter - just if you want to try it out yourself.
-- If you're keen to test it, there are easy downloads of 30 days free trial versions of some 3D modeling software (e.g. 3D studio max or Blender). You may need a renderer plug-in.
-- Quick instructions on how to get the correct viewpoint for the eggs are here.

If there are updated instructions I should link to or other useful tutorials I may have missed, I'll be happy to edit these in! Thanks again to those people who have helped in the past with rendering and YPPedia pages, and to those who (I hope!) will do so this year, thanks in advance. This Eggomelet wouldn't be the same without you all!

Just throwing this out there!

... BUT... if we get a limited number of egg entries, perhaps They Who Makes The Decisions could bring back eggs of the past, even if its in comps and stuff.

Egg Enthusiasts need more supplies and cannot buy the old things since they are no longer available and maaaay have dusted from too many moves.

Here's an eggcellent dozen ready to go!

Alaya of Cerulean, Wine Cat egg


Alpha of Emerald, Dragon egg


Ambrygold of Cerulean, Turtle Shell egg


Bookly of Emerald, Gold Mummy egg

Congratulations to all the winners! The prizes and trophy (if you don't already have it) will be delivered as soon as the eggs are in game. Please note that these may not be the final rotations/angles.The names may not be final and I don't have information on when these will be released, nor on which eggs will be available in the Palace Shoppe, what the prices will be, or which eggs will be events-only. If you're not one of the winners picked this year, don't despair - there's always next year. And chances are that one of your eggs was somebody's favorite!

Thank you everyone for participating, you are who make this event wonderful! Special thanks to our eggstraordinary renderers, Greylady and Faeree, who scramble the best renderings!
