I provide the tower model, you provide as many environment as you can muster.
It can be a 3d enviroment or a matte painting. It just has to be to be realistic.

That sounds a lot like a modeling challenge. What is the "FXWARS" part?
Asking because I really don't know. Isn't it usually an animation or simulation type thing?

Agree. Not much of an FX in fact. lighting, rendering, compositing - yes. But FX? What, dust or rain?

I think for FX you could do stuff like that, lightning storm, rain, dust, falling rocks, things that makes the scene more interesting and conducive to the type of tower you're making

you read my mind...
As youcan see already we will do a soft launch this weekend.

BTW

Tha name of the seven towers are:
AKHERON -SWAMP
(or Acheron), the river of pain, was a stream and swampy lake of the underworld and its god.

POTAMOI -RIVER
were the gods of the rivers and streams of the earth, sons of the great earth-encirling river Okeanos. Their sisters were the Okeanides, goddesses of streams, clouds and rain, and their daughters were the Naiades, nymphs of fresh-water springs.

Nautilus/TRITON - OCEAN

THE ANEMOI - SKY
were the gods of the four directional winds--Boreas the North-Wind, Zephryos the West-Wind, Notos the South-Wind, and Euros the East-Wind. They were closely connected with the seasons : Boreas was the cold breath of winter, Zephyros the god of spring breezes, and Notos the god of summer rain-storms.

HEPHAISTOS -VOLCANO
was the great Olympian god of fire, metalworking, stonemasonry and the art of sculpture. He was usually depicted as a bearded man holding hammer and tongs--the tools of a smith--and riding a donkey.

PSAMATH ESERT
PSAMATHE was the Nereid goddess of sand beaches.

BOREAS: ICE FIELDS
BOREAS was also the god of winter, who swept down from the cold northern mountains of Thrake, chilling the air with his icy breath. To the north, beyond his mountain home, lay Hyperborea, a land of eternal spring which was never touched by the god's cold wind.


BONUS TOWERS:


CHRYSUS : OPULENT CITY
: God or Spirit of Gold | Greek mythology, Khrysos
ATHENA : TECHNOLOGY

Okay, okay, now I get it. Had to look everything over and digest a bit.

This will take some thought.

Oh, didn't look like you were done making the intro thread.

I'm pretty sure I'm in but I'm still pondering the possibilities.
