Welcome to the Pak192.Comic Pixel Contest, an Simutrans Regular Graphic Contest.
It's summertime. People want to go on holiday. So many in fact that public transportation stations start to burst. Some so-called experts want us to use more vehicles, but we all know it's enough to just build a bigger station, right? ;)
So, in order to avoid overcrowding, please pixel extension buildings
You may create a multi-tile-building, but if it is not square, you have to include one rotation.
An icon is not required, but appreciated.
Deathline is the 31st of July.
- Who can enter the contest?
Anyone, multiple times, even if not registered on forum.simutrans.com, who read, understood and agreed to these rules.
- What do I have to do?
Create an image that fits both the style of pak192.comic and the topic of the contest. Additionally, we encourage you to include further data, like a dat-file, info-text, ingame-mockup, but these are not obligatory.
- Where do I post my creation?
Please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the name you wish to be displayed in the game. Don't publish them elsewhere until the contest is over.
- Will my picture become part of the pak?
This is the purpose, so if there are no reasons not to include it (eg. wrong scale in relation to other objects, wrong style, ...) the answer is probably yes.
- How do I win?
After the nomination period, we'll start a voting on forum.simutrans.com. The image with the most votes is the winner.
- What about the licence?
We'll provide the next version of pak192.comic as CC-BY NC 3.0, so your work needs to go with that licence. Additionally, until the voting is over your work will be displayed without your name to ensure fair play.
- How to start?
Pixeling isn't hard to do or learn, but it might be time consuming. For absolute beginners, there are many tutorials for pixel art in general, I'd like to recommend this one: http://opengameart.org/content/les-forges-pixel-art-course (http://opengameart.org/content/les-forges-pixel-art-course)
If you need help or have any questions about pak192.comic, you can visit the chat where most pak192.comic team members hang out (http://www.leartin.at/forum/chat), post your question in this thread or the Graphic Guide (http://forum.simutrans.com/index.php?topic=13339.0).
That entrance to underground is very beautiful - and it is better than that post, in my opinion - but nothing against that post.
