A bit of encouragement/entertainment for other designers

Have you any suggestions for additional forums or improvements?

A bit of encouragement/entertainment for other designers

Postby Club508 » Mon Jan 09, 2012 7:03 pm

I was just painting aircraft as usual when at one point this idea popped into my head.  At first i thought it was nonsense, but then I stopped and thought it over and decided it might actually be a worth while suggestion.

Why don't we create a seperate creation contests for things like aircraft, scenery, repainting, panel etc. designing?
It could help interest some new designers, and further encourage/entertain current ones.  It could also help to bring tons more uploads to Simviation.

It could be run like the screenshot contest, only you upload it to Simviation and have the judge(s) examine it, leaving a little note in the topic with a link to the download so they know what's being entered.


I just thought it would be an interesting and fun new thing to try if possible. :)

THIS THIS THIS!! A million times this!
Though aircraft designing should be limited to drawing or simple 3D models since it takes a long time to make a fully functional model for FS...
But I like the repainting idea...

I would say the repaint contest would work but the others wouldn't be very pratical.

Yeah, that would be interesting.
I'll just have to watch cause I'm pretty terrible at all :D
Most people think that flying a plane is dangerous, except pilots because they know how easy it is.
Arguing with a pilot is like wrestling with a pig in the mud, after a while you begin to think the pig likes it.

I like this!
The repainting contest sounds like a great idea to get people interested!
The others require too much effort to make them a contest IMHO.
It could be something like each month a theme, aircraft, or scheme is chosen for everyone to do.

Well, I didn't get any yes or no from the moderators/administrators on this, so I went ahead and made a repaint competition for February since so many people seemed to like the idea.  It's in the Aircraft Repainting board for any of you who want to enter.

If any of you moderators/administrators have issues with it, please let me know and take it down.

Club I think I know why Jetprop doesn't want you to enter. It's because you do good repaints.

Also will the winners be picked by what paint looks nice or by the quality of the paint?

And I have an idea about the next contest. Instead of picking a specific plane why not pick a type of plane like "Light Twin" & people repaint light twins like the Baron.

P.S. we are about the same age. :)

Thanks! :)  But am I really that good?  I always think I'm around average. :D
And it's pretty much both. the voter would end up deciding for themselves anyway, no matter what I said. :D
And also, I haven't looked up what it will be yet, and like I said, I'm not going to look up until it's time. :D
