1. Is it permitted to use cubemaps (simply put, textures mapped not to UV but Reflection TC)? For instance, taking a piece of diffuse texture and applying it with some exotic mapping mode on a separate texture layer?

2. Are there any engine postprocessing filters allowed like glow effects / curves / DOF?

3. Are there any advanced rendering engine features (like raytracing or IBL, which are not usual for modern MMO engines) allowed in use for shadows or illumination?
I was thinking like there're no restrictions for use of render engines (according to the official DW rules), was this item about game visualization engines only (like Marmoset or CryEngine), or about actual rendering engines like software biased and unbiased raytracers, etc (in that case it's kinda killing the whole purpose or competition).

i have the same question, at the dominance at war site says that they are going to ask for the models to check if photoshop were used to modified the result, but in blender i have the possibility of using post production nodes to add glow dof and some other general things( i dont know how to use the BGE but blender has one as well).

Is it still possible to start and submit a piece?

Can we use render flat planes as double sided? Or do we have to make a clone and flip the normals?

@ ChrisChinea: Yeah, just start posting wip's in the relevant thread (3d, 2d or animation)

Hey guys. I just want to ask, on our one presentation image can we have more than one angle view of the character? Or does it have to strictly be shown from a single angle on that presentation image?
And it says that the contest will resume as this is all sorted out, so no need to worry, I reckon

The contest, like Existenz, is paused.

Not sure why, as that hasn't been relevealed, nor if it will resume. With Polycount admins talking about setting up their own competition it doesn't look too great. Personally I didn't really care about the causes for this, and happily signed up to have my 'mini' work sold; it was more the decision to suddenly take everything down without explanation that I find unprofessional. To be honest I can't see many companies sponsoring this mess right now, and how many artists will enter the Mains when the competition might fold at any time?

from polycount

This is posted on polycount, only info I can find so far.

UPDATE: December 6th 2010 Fred, founder and organizer of the DominanceWar, has put the contest on hold.
Due to recent events, Dominance War V has been suspended. To read up on what is happening, visit: http://www.gameartisans.org/forums/...ead.php?t=18042

This challenge will resume once the Founder, Fredrik Hultqvist, makes an official comment about recent events and the state of DominanceWar.com and GameArtisans.org.

Dominance War V will resume shortly. Thank you for your patience .

Hello, I read this forum for years but just now i had reason to post something. I don't want to be taken as a spammer.
Anyone here can tell my how to add my own community (team) to the challenge? I don't know who to contact. Is there any place with information how to do it? Thank a lot in advance!
