Custom Content Challenge: August 2016: The Great Outdoors
« on: August 02, 2016, 08:49:29 pm »


               
The theme for this month's challenge: "The Great Outdoors":

  

The Great Outdoors: Wilderness adventure, encounters, and locations. Forest features, barren wastelands, extreme/unique terrains, hazards and challenges. Structures build to blend with nature, absorbed by, or exploiting its resources (trappers, loggers, etc)

 

This theme was suggested by Carcerian.

 

Guidelines:


  • It must be fully working in game.

  • Use of vanilla NWN or publicly available texture is fine.  Just remember that NWN textures must have dimensions in powers of 2 (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, etc.).

  • Teamwork is welcome.

  • Beginners most welcome. Don't be afraid, just try, you'll be surprised!

  • "Custom Content" includes many sorts of things: models, scripts, prefabs (areas, items, creatures, conversations, quests, etc.), sounds, portraits, or anything else new for the game.

  • All submissions must be finished, working, and emailed to NWNCCCMakers@gmail.com (or a non-Vault link provided) by September 1st, 2016. Sooner than that is perfectly fine too. ;-)

  •  

     

    Somethings you could include in the download/email that would make packaging everything up easier and faster:


  • 2da lines needed.

  • Screenshot from in game for use on the vault page (this also gives me hints on how to display the new goodie). Formats: .bmp, .jpg, .png, or .tga

  • Portraits (if needed) of your new goodie. Placeables and monsters should include a portrait.

  • Inventory icons (if needed) of your new goodie.

  • Any credits you would like listed.

  • If this is your first entry, please tell me what name you would like your work listed under and provide a link to your other NWN content if you want that displayed as well (the link bit is totally optional).

  • Also if you would like an invite to the CC Makers group, send Rolo Kipp a friend invite. The group is nothing spectacular, mostly just documentation on 2da lines.

  •  

    Remember, the Challenge is all about fun, sharing, creativity, and surprise!

     

    This thread is for all sorts of discussion about this month's theme: ideas for things to make, questions/concerns, announcement of what you intend to make, screenshots of work in progress and/or finished projects.  

     

    If you want to discuss the Monthly Custom Content Challenge idea as a whole or wish to submit ideas/themes for future monthly Challenges, please post in its thread here

     

    When submitting a new theme, please provide a title and short summary of the theme.

     

    If you have a technical question about some custom content creation, please create a separate thread so that the answers can be found later by anyone, not just people interested in this Challenge. 

     

    We'll try to help!

     

    Have no fear and join the fun!

     

    And finally, you can: 

     

    Submit theme suggestions. 

    Vote for September's theme.

    Is this topic going to be replicated on the New Vault's forum pages?
