SUPERMAN BUILD CONTEST!!!

Have you seen the movie Man of Steel. Pretty damn awesome! I want to bring that awesome to Fraxy, so here is my pitch.

The Contest:
Create a Fraxy boss that emulates the look of the terraforming machine that General Zod unleashes on Earth in the 2013 film, Man of Steel
Image

In the film, the machine fires a giant laser, has a enhanced gravity field, and is defended by tentacle-like appendages.

The Rules:
- The Boss MUST BE a fixed area boss
- Try files are preferred, but .FED files are just as eligible. (Just don't send multiple pieces to a level because I am not knowledgeable on how to create a try file)
- Submission must be through e-mail or PM on UFF
- Submissions must be successfully received by October 31st, 2013
- A paragraph must be included with submission, which explains the boss, credits any collaborations with other users and materials (music, quotes, imagery, etc.)

The Prize

The chosen winner of the contest will have their boss featured in a special Fraxy boss video on my Youtube Channel, receive a shoutout, and will be sent a one-of-a-kind Man of Steel Fraxy texture pack (made by me). Similiar to the Iron Man texture pack.


Further notes:
Get creative, add your own parts and features. Use music, text, backgrounds, and anything you can use to create a full-on Superman experience. That is what the contest will be judged by, whose try file can create the best play experience.

PM me any questions, check back to the thread for any further notices, and good luck.

Questions are in bold.

MrRickyStephens wrote:The Rules:
- The Boss MUST BE a fixed area boss No qualms with this.
- The Boss MUST BE included in a try file Not everyone can do TRY files. This is severely limiting the participants already. Why must it be included in a TRY file? Why not do the TRY file yourself using the contest winner?
- Submission must be through e-mail or PM on UFF I get it's for secrecy, but why? I mean, most of us want to have the dl link/video covering it. Why not just take that?
- Submissions must be successfully received by October 31st, 2013 It's... decent enough. Sadly, a lot of us procastinate until the last second/have other things to do at this point.
- A paragraph must be included with submission, which explains the boss, credits any collaborations with other users and materials (music, quotes, imagery, etc.) Why not do this yourself? (The boss explanation, not the credits part, since the submitter does that himself in the video they post either way.)


That said, I'm not joining. I'm swarmed in things to do as is.

Thanks for the questions, I knew there might be some. Hopefully I can answer these questions as best as I can.

1. I have no idea how to program/make a successful try file. I have tried but constantly failed. This rule is more of a common-sense rule. If users send me a boss with fixed area settings, music, and custom text, they usually send it to me in a try file to begin with. If a person doesn't know how to make a try file, like me, they can just send the FED file to me. So I guess the boss doesn't HAVE to be in a try file UNLESS it has the elements of a try file. (changed rule in original post, thanks for bringing this to my attention)

2. This is just how you submit it in the contest. If you want to post it in this thread or any other forums, that is your business but you need to send it directly to me to have your boss entered in the contest.

3. The date is set as it is, I don't intend to change it. I set it because it coincides with the time that I will be receiving some set pieces that I can use for the special Fraxy video as mentioned in the prize section.

4. A reviewer cannot explain what the creator fully means. I want the maker to tell me what he has put into his boss so I am fully aware of what it is capable of, or any special features. That way I can do it full-justice in the Fraxy video.

I'm not joining solely because I didn't see the movie.

Of course I have to put in a prize. It's small, but it's the least I can do for making the effort. What's a contest without a prize?
