(Closed) Surface Target Challenge

74.8k LunarEclipseSP  1.4 years ago

Challenge closed. Thank you so much for all participants who has joined in the challenge <3

All winner list is out

In this challenge, you have to build any kind of surface target.

Standard rules and criteria:

  1. Your submission must be a successor. It's okay if you don't need to be the successor. Just simply mention my username or give me the link of your submission to me.

  2. Your build must a "vehicle". Target buildings like camps, houses, etc can't be accepted.

  3. Aircrafts and other aerial vehicles, although it was intended to be parked and static, is also unacceptable. Surface vehicles only (land and sea vehicles).

  4. Your build could be a ground target, or naval target.
    The ground targets can be vehicles, trucks, MRAPs, or armored tanks.
    The naval targets can be ships, destroyers, battleships, LCS-es, cruisers, and submarines.

  5. Your build must be a military themed.

  6. (Updated) You can build civilian builds, with severe conditions. Civilian builds which is can be accepted is the vehicles that we're usually seen commonly in our everyday life. Public service vehicles is allowed, like ambulance, firetruck, police cars, police boats, SWAT van, and another utility vehicles. Civilian ground targets which is can be allowed is civilian cars like sedans, hatchback, SUVs, box truck, rig trucks, etc. Public transport are allowed, like buses and taxis, even tuk-tuks and auto rickshaws are also allowed, weaponized vehicles that usually operated by insurgents, like tehcnical trucks are allowed (except zombie apocalypse themed or Mad Max styled vehicles). And the civilian naval targets which is can be allowed is cargo ships, and tanker ships. Race cars like stock cars, NASCAR, etc, even more the monster trucks is outrageously unacceptable (This is not a racing challenge remember). Besides from that, construction vehicles like haul truck, mining truck, excavator, bulldozers, front loaders, mixer trucks, mobile cranes, etc is really allowed. But, try to make a military vehicles or public service instead of civilians. Make an effort! I know you can :)

  7. (New rules) I can't really accept the weaponries like artillery cannons or AA cannon, even more the SAM artillery. Your artillery should be like AA tanks, SPAAG, Howitzer tanks, etc. Unless if you're making another vehicles that pull the weapon as a trailer.
    Possible example, click here

Very important rules and criteria:

  1. As this is a ground target, your build shall not drive-able. Build a static, stationary prop that literally cannot do anything but stay still. Unable to move, unable to shoot or counterattack, just standing still at the place (Main reason: Adding systematics and mechanism to your build would be a waste of parts).

  2. (Updated) Try your building must have 0 drag point, especially when you're trying to use Fine Tuner to resize your build when making naval builds. So that it doesn't cause lag or even game-freeze. (Updated) this criterion is specific for massive builds, such as naval targets like ships. Unless, when it's still capable and not making lag or game-freezing, at least the drag points should not exceed 1000000+ drag points so please make an effort.

  3. Do not use any mods, except Overload or Fine Tuner to help you build. Caught using the mod (like Tracks 2 or anything else) will be immediately rejected outright.

  4. Try to build your submission in 1:1 scale, that means it must be a realistic size. I can't really accept some builds which is oversized (for ground targets) or undersized (for naval targets). Make the scale as realistic as possible.

  5. The most important criteria. Your build must under 100 parts aka Mobile Friendly. Do not exceed 100 parts or your submission will not be accepted. However, it would be better if your building is under 70 parts. So, make an effort. Can you build under 70 parts or below?

  6. Your submission is trully your own build. Not stolen from anyone else, even more other participant. Be honest even though the reality is bitter.

  7. One submission per participants.

  8. (New rules) Newbie players still can be accepted, but just wait for the result and evaluation.

  9. Be fair and have fun.

Evaluation and rating:
The submission rating is calculated not from the number of upvotes, but based on the rating below:

  1. Scaling, how realistic are the scale is.

  2. Detailing, how detail the submission is.

  3. Realism, in terms of scale, and even detail, much like previous ratings gathered together.

  4. Parts count, more lower the parts, more better it is. Especially when it's below 70 parts, even more good.

  5. (Updated) Drag points, mostly the naval targets with massive size. Prizes are deducted by 1 points if these conditions are not met (Example, you won 1st prize and you should supposed to get 12 upvote, but you just got 11 upvotes because you didn't meet this requirement, unless if it's still capable and not making lag or game-freeze).

So, I will be the one to evaluate your submission, not based on how many upvote you get.

Some few examples. You may want to use it as a reference. Tracing is fine, as long as you don't steal it:

Ground targets:

Tank


Truck


Fire Truck (Ground Prop)


Police Cruiser (Ground Prop)


Auto Rickshaw (Ground Prop)


Box Truck


Ambulance (Ground Prop)

Naval targets:

Deadline: February 28th 2023. Start from now!

Prizes (Renewed):
6th - 2 upvotes
5th - 4 upvotes
4th - 6 upvotes
3rd - 8 upvotes
2nd - 10 upvotes
1st - 12 upvotes
Upvotes apply specifically to posted aircrafts, not to forums.

    max how many builds were uploaded for this challenge and when is deathLane?

    +2 1.4 years ago

    @Mastereldo yes you can. But as an Alicorn size is massive, you may would change every parts drag points into 0, because literally you'll need Fine Tuner to resize your build, and it would affect the drag points too.
    Massive drag points will cause the game lag or even freezing
