I'm not entering hun, sorry. While I have no problem with vector (I always used vector programs for yo) and I could meet the rules and everything, the whole thing just doesn't sit right with me.

I also noticed this contest hasn't been advertised in-game by a news pop up, like it always used to be. How players who don't visit the forums are supposed to even know there is a contest going on? o_o

I understand why you aren't but you have become my favourite designer since you started entering. I hope they will have future contests that you will enter!

I'm sorry to read you aren't entering Sayuri but I understand your reasons. I also wonder why the contest was not announced in game.

Sayuri (118889749) wrote:My honest opinion:
I have 3 issues with this
1-Requesting for full outfits is not what I would have imagined for a "mini" contest.
2-Mandatory vector format feels like forcing out a lot of players who enjoy designing using other media.
3-No balance between male/female

Here is why:

A single item contest would have been both lots of fun for players to enter, and fairly mini to be managed well by bvg artists.

I know many players with brilliant ideas for single items, and I would've loved to see them being able to participate! But here, they are forced to either learn a vector program(+design a full outfit) or... nothing... o_o

I was pondering if entering a male outfit only, to sort of protest the 3rd point, but it would be pointless, so I just call me out of this. I see no point in supporting this way of holding contests, It's not the spirit I'm after.

My feedback to bvg: I really feel like points 1 and 2 are not working towards an inclusive experience, it feels like a test for a job application, except there is no job. More players in the community should be encouraged to participate, not shut out.
Did you want to host a mini contest? Great, why not a single item one? Maybe even keeping (if you really must) the mandatory vector, but one thing is creating a single item in vector, for beginners, another story is a full outfit (not to mention back, variations and so on) it's just crazy to ask that to game players (not professional artists) who would simply liked to create an item for the game they love, having great ideas in mind! Not only you would have got more players to participate, but also more fresh ideas to take inspiration from.
I get you called it "mini" 'cos there is gonna be only 2 winners, so it's little workload on bvg side, but in my opinion, players/customers' side should be taken more into consideration, and this format is asking too much from players to be called "mini", it's starting to feel like a bad joke.

"I speak for myself only" disclaimer. Peace.


I agree wholeheartedly.
For a "mini" contest, they ask from us more than ever before(vectors, back views, color variations, etc).
I miss the times when contests were more simple, now they just expect us to be professional designers and if we are not, we are not welcome....


SIS. PLS ENTER. YOUR HAIRS ARE ICONIC!!! Ma, we need another icy white hair.

I think the restrictions might kill this design contest. It's very telling that it's the 13th and not one person has even entered anything... please make design contests fun and simple again.

I don’t think the design contest is dead :haha: It’s just that, because of many requirements, people are still working on their designs. I feel like we won’t be seeing any designs probably until the end.

For example, in my case. I was just beginning to do the variants of my design and my Illustrator crashed. Which brings to the next question!

Dear Vikings,

How is it possible to put everything in 1 source file? I did my main design, and I have not even started on my back design yet. I started to do the variants on the same file and it crashed. My Illustrator never died like this before :dizzy: Is it possible to have like a separate file for variants and then maybe compress everything to a Zip file? Thanks! :angel:

Thanks for asking that, I was just coming to ask the same thing. I submitted all my designs previously in a compressed ZIP folder, makes it way easier -- especially for myself seeing as I use adobe flash and conflicting symbols makes things confusing.

And yes, I agree. This contest isn't dead. I've nearly finished the male hair I'm designing... There's a lot of requirements...

I have a question regarding the 6 hairs: is there going to be a rare option? Like, should I create 4 standard colours and then 2 rares or are we just going with standard colours this time?

My prediction is that there will be way less entries than usual, cause of the requirements getting harder and harder for the artists. It's very time consuming to enter the contest now, cause there's so many things the designer must do now.
