Title: Screencap Contest: December 2019
Post by: NeonShivan on December 01, 2019, 08:13:43 pm
As 2019 draws to its conclusion, let this year be remembered by some as glorious as the second coming of their lord/lady and savior, or as an omen of a coming apocalypse. But we're gonna kick it off in style. This month's theme is FREE but I'm making some changes to the contest as a whole. For starters, rule 3:

Quote
3: Max 3 entries per person!

is removed for this month's contest. I want everyone to dish out as many screenshots they can possibly conjure. I want break the internet with how amazing FSO has become. Do not cherry pick your screenshots, show me the good, amazing, bad, and ugly of Freespace.

Second, I am removing Rule 1 as well;

Quote
1: No HUD! (Jump nodes are ok though!)

But there is an exception it. Not all of your submissions can have HUDs. If you have more than one submission with a HUD, those subsequent submissions will be disqualified. The HUD should not be an excuse for laziness. I want the world to see what Freespace is truly about, not just how pretty it is, but the core aspect of the game itself.

Third, the winner of this month's contest will receive 2 points instead of 1. That way everyone has a chance of winning this year's screencap competition. Also, if you submit more than 3 screenshots, you will receive two extra points (to a max of 4). So, for example, if Nyctaeus submitted four screenshots, he would receive two points, making his score 4. However, if MitoPL submitted four screenshots, he would only receive one point, making his score 4. The idea is to make it so anyone who participates this month could have a chance to win for the whole year. Just, well, they gotta work for it.

Now, lemme see what the Freespace community can conjure, show me what we got!


The rules are:

1: No HUD! (Jump nodes are ok though!)
1: HUD is ok, so long as you do not exceed one submission that includes the HUD or HUD elements. (Jump Nodes do not count as a HUD element)
2: Images must be presented as they would be as seen with only the FSO engine rendering the image. Remember that these entries help to show off what the engine can do for new players! So that means no after the fact photoshopping (except for cropping), and no external shader programs (reshade and the like). No lens flares, contrast shifts, colorizers, etc.
3: Max 3 entries per person!
4: Again, these screenshots are a way to promote Freespace and the FSO Engine - let's keep it in good taste.
5: Four or more submissions will give you an additional two points, up to 4. (If your score is 0, your score will then be 2. If your score is 2, your score will then be 4. If your score is 3, your score will then be 4.)


Nightmare: 4
Colt: 4
0rph3u5: 2
MitoPL: 3
Nyctaeus: 2

Okay, now that I think of it it might be a good idea for contestants to enclose their entries within a hidden text tag. Perhaps we could have that as a temporary rule for this month?

First batch, my Aftermath leftovers:

This convoy is in some trouble.

A nice missile salvo, with a capship battle in the background.

Even when you think they've been blinded by the star, Shivans will always find you.

GTCv Olympus can deliver really tough punches, though. I personally like this shot very, very much.

Unless you've got proper firepower, that is.

Bombing runs need good bombers.

And good bombers need good fighter cover.

Good bombers, good fighters, good hits.

For a slight change of pace, get some green battle.

Sometimes you wonder: how did I even get here?

On one side, a hefty blockade...

And on the other side, a double furball.

Now, a couple FS1 era shots:

In regard to the Psamtik not being beam-freed (too lazy to quote and find that one :p), I like BP's lore for the Hatshepsut. Basically to conserve power they turned beams off to jump between battles faster, using the destroyer's mortars and AAAF beams to resolve engagements while relying on its armour. It became a morale crusher for the NTF.
Title: Re: Screencap Contest: December 2019
Post by: Nightmare on December 29, 2019, 09:48:38 pm
Less firepower so you can run away from a battle that you're going to loose due to the lack of firepower? :wtf: The Sobek seems to be better at murdering fighters (in particular compared to its size) anyway.

NTF had a decent amount of Deimos corvettes too. Perhabs it's good against Shivans as long as there are no destroyers in the area of engagement.

There are literally no Deimos corvettes in The Romans Blunder. We see what the Psamtik does about Deimos corvettes in Surrender, Belisarius.

...Huh. Interesting. :nervous:

Nothing special. I don't know how to disable the HUD.
Screencap Contest screenshots are from Freespace Open-related content only. Still a nice shot though. :p

Wolf Set is the best, along with Manticore :yes:

Didn't knew that HUD trick either (for a much longer time, actually).

Nice one, for a moment here I thought that was a sort of practical joke :P.

Also everyone, let's sympathise with Neon for a second, RIP his free time and feeling of judgement - as there are... over a hundred screenshots to sift through and "grade" this month, I guess?

Yeah, I've got pile here i've taken/been taking during my replays of BP/Solaris/JAD but figured I'd save them for another month! Poor Neon...  :lol:

Gee. I wonder why there are so many, Mito. :lol:

But yeah, a lot of them are really good shots so I imagine it'll take a bit of time to judge.

Alright, my wrists have been firmly slit and my will to live is at an all time low. With that said, here is the scoreboard thus far:

Nightmare: 4
Colt: 4
0rph3u5: 4
MitoPL: 4
Nyctaeus: 4
MatthTheGeek: 4

But there can be only one winner, and that winner is MitoPL, with his shot of the Rampart, Refute (at least I'm assuming that's the Refute, he's always the last to die in my playthroughs), and Repulse.

All of your images and worthy of recognition in their own right. On one hand, I would love to upload them all to the wiki, but on another I'm pretty sure if I did that, Goober would execute me for treason. You all did wonderful.

January is a break month until I can get my situation sorted, February's theme will be announced at the end of January. Congratulations to all, thanks for playing, see you in February!

There can be only one response.

Yay!

Also, thanks for your work, lol.

Maybe if not Wiki, then Celebration of Freespace?

Will this mean that February's contest be worth 2 points instead of 1?
