Postby Viking David » Wed Jan 09, 2019 11:35 am

Hey YoFans!

Some of you will be delighted to know that we've found time to squeeze in a mini-Design Contest for this year's Valentine's celebration! Our rules have changed from previous contests, so please be sure to review them thoroughly before entering. Good luck! :heart:

Entries Thread

CONTEST BASICS
    • Each entry in this contest must consist of 1 full outfit design, including:
    ○ Outfit title/name
    ○ Individual item names
    ○ Core design and variants, as outlined in the Acceptable Designs section below.
    • You may submit as many entries as desired so long as each follows these rules.
    • Post each design in the Entries Thread, then send the associated source file to [email protected] before the entries deadline.
    ○ Each entry must be submitted separately.
    ○ Posts must consist of three images:
    ○ 1 displaying the outfit on a Yo, to be used for voting
    ○ 1 'exploded' view detailing the items (including names)
    ○ 1 for additional details such as back views and variants
    ○ Source files must be sent in 1 email with 1 file attached.
    ○ If entering more than once, please send separate emails with separate source files for each.
    ○ Please separate source files for separate designs (files must contain items only for that entry).
    ○ Include your player name, player ID, and outfit title/name in the email

Prohibited items in this contest:
    • Skin
    • Face shape
    • Any items which change the fundamental shape of the base Yo as provided below.

OTHER RULES
Designs must be in .ai, .svg, or another vector format.
    • Design details - note that these rules are now mandatory, and failure to follow them will result in your entry being disqualified.
    ○ Avoid changing the main shape of the Yo (waist slimming, adding a neck, etc)
    ○ Avoid creating items that reach far outside the confines of a Yo.
    ○ Avoid effects such as blur or drop shadow (they do not function properly in YoWorld)
Variations between submitted designs and the final winning items may occur.
    If your entry is chosen, our artists may need to make minor changes in order to make the items work in YoWorld. We will do our best to represent the original design while recreating it, however exact replicas are not guaranteed, and minor variations will not be revised. Following these rules will help minimize variances.
Any design you submit must be your own original work.
    By posting your design, you acknowledge that you are releasing all rights to your creations, and confirm that they are your own creations. Any violations of this rule will result in a permanent disqualification from future design contests.

HOW TO ENTER

DEADLINE
    • The deadline for new entries is January 21st at 12:00am EDT (midnight).

WINNERS SELECTION & PRIZES
    • 8 finalists will be selected by a panel of Vikings. Finalists will receive 50 YoCash each!
    • YoFans will be able to vote for their 2 favourite designs to be recreated and released in YoWorld!
    • Each winning designer will receive an additional 100 YoCash and their designed item(s), including variants, for free!

Glad there is a rule for not changing the figure of the yo. The outfits just dont layer well together

I hope the winners are male and female too.

I will be furious if they’re both female.

They are making it easier to be done. Im guessing they had lots of trouble last contest. Now they are making the designers pick the recolors so there are no complaints later on like with the pierre hair

I'd like to second Liam's motion that it would only be fair to have one female and one male outfit winner instead of two female outfits!

I really don’t see the issue with it being:

Hellos! A few questions before I get to designing: When you say any items which change the funamental shape of the base Yo, are poses such as the Sayuri 40's Purse still acceptable? And when you say hair + 5 additional variants, can we also submit 2 colors that we'd like as rares or is it going to be like the full outfits from the Anniversary contest where we didn't have rares/mystery box? Thank you! <3

Sorry, a 3rd question just popped into my head! You never specified whether it would be 1 female winner and 1 male winner, so should we expect the possibility of two female or two male winners? Or will it be one of each?

Last question, I promise! Do we absolutely have to use the base Yo you've provided, or can we use one from in game? Thank you :heart:

Hi Tim!

- Please do not submit any items that change the pose or shape of the Yo.
- The distribution of the winners has not been decided as of yet, so please only submit 5 variants but feel free to mark 2 as rares as it will provide a reference if we choose to distribute them that way.
- There could be a possibility of two male winners, two female winners, and 1 male and 1 female winner. Please design accordingly.
- You can use any of the current default face shapes available to base your design off of.

Hope this helps!

:D :thumbsup:
