I have a feeling this is going to be our greatest challenge yet!

Good luck to everyone - you have a massive incentive to do something awesome, so get to work!


#3

Wow :beer:, I think it will be a very great challenge :slight_smile:


#4

Yikes!!!

3 months as well, even I might finish in time.


#5

Well i’m game! Even though my work pales in comparison to others in this community I might as well try! I think everyone should give it a go, the worst that could happen is you might have a little fun and learn something to boot, and the best case scenario is you win a sweet workstation :drool:

I would love to work on this, but I only have an educational version of the program I am actually pretty decent with. It think maybe winning something with it might be illegal, hehe. Not that I am sure I would win.* I loved the description of the theme, it sounds like it will be really cool to see peoples projects. Good luck everybody

Wow, and good timing too, end of semester holiday break commin’ up soon :smiley:


#18

my ram is only at 512, and my videocard isnt even compatible with maya. Having a computer like that would feel like owning a small metallic/plastic/sylicone god. I’m sure there is rubber and other stuff in there somewhere too. I bet I could render like five times faster with it.


#19

I am searching for ideas:) Post osme inspiration if you want in here. I’ll throw a little bit in:

Shpongle and Infested Mushroom music (goa trance) for that wierd whacky Xen feel (Half-Life) :smiley:
