Welcome to the The Continuous Screenshot Competition X - The Original Continuous Screenshot Competitions Around HeavenGames Since 21st May 2006!

______HOW IT WORKS______

Lo and behold!

I present to you, the tenth episode of our beloved, one and only, Continuous Screenshot Competition, which as its name blatantly applies, is where we hold a continuous screenshot competition. Yeah, for real. It's a continuous screenshot competition, where a continuous series of screenshot competitions take place. Quite original, don't you say? I never even thought of the idea that one could hold a continuous screenshot competition in a continuous screenshot competition thread! This is truly a magnificent discovery, a crowning achievement of mankind! It even compares to the discovery of sliced bread, and even the discovery of Albert Einstein! There's no doubt that it will go down in the pages of history. Because you see, as quoted from The Free Dictionary, history is defined as "a usually chronological record of events, as of the life or development of a people or institution, often including an explanation of or commentary on those events". Did you notice that I put an emphasis on the bold text? Yes, this is certainly a development of us, the AoKH people, of the AoKH institution. Age of Kings is just your ordinary medieval strategy game, what's the big deal about it? It's got sucky 2D graphics made of properly-designed pixels. And what's even worse is that players don't have the capability of constructing a spaceship, creating a naked female villager without having to mod those VMDLs *now that's a good idea*, or electing Julian Assange as president. So what is it that keeps it strong, after 11 years and many people are still infatuated by it? What's the reason? Well, I have no time to answer that question now, because this thread is where we submit screenshots from the game, not to have an pointless discussion about it. Seriously, why did I derail this monologue to that bit? Wasn't I talking about cranberry sauce? Oh, never mind. No one would read rants like this, anyway.

Anyway, I have to explain the rules, as did the CSC hosts who have passed the throne until it eventually comes to my grasp. Here's how this competition works: Everyone who wishes to enter must take a screenshot that they made which is relevant to the current category, the screenshot can be related to the title literally or abstractly, as long as you can give an explanation of why you say your screenshot relates to the category in hand and doesn't defy any of the rules stated below, it goes in. Make your screenshot as literal, creative or imaginative as you like - as long as it's related to the category in at least one way! OK, so you’ve got your screenshot all in and ready, what happens next? After the given time, which is usually 5 days if we've got enough entries to be competed (obviously it's not a competition if there's only one entry), the time for entrants will be closed, and then people who did not enter can vote for the screenshot they like. After around three days on average, the person with the most votes is the winner, and they chose the next category - which is why it is a continuous cycle!

There you have it! Enjoy the competition while it lasts!

_________CURRENT COMPETITION_________


337. Category: Wolf Pack - Graphical mods permitted: ?
Status: Voting (closes on the 14th of April at 11:59 PM forum time.)

Entries:
  • Vardamir - 1 (Knaber)
  • Knaber - 3 (Mash, HockeySam18, John the Late)


    _________RULES_________

  • No category may be used twice.
  • If a Category has not been used for 100 Rounds it CAN be used again.
  • You may only enter one screenshot per category.
  • You may only enter as an individual; no team efforts.
  • The previous winner cannot compete in the competition he/she set the category for. (For that person would of had an advantage otherwise)
  • In the event that the winner cannot choose the next category a: Super Special Bonkers Bonus Round” will happen, this basically means there is no category and any screenshot can be entered as long as it conforms to the other rules.
  • If there is a tie in the voting, the person who picked the category (last round's winner) will cast the tie-breaker vote.
  • No pasting pictures into your screenshots of anything, period (text is an exception).
  • When it comes to editing your screenshot in a program like Paint, you can remove toolbars/change them to a new border for decoration, but you may not use effects or the program to edit the base of your sceenshot. This includes creating comic-strip photos with multiple screenshots. Any text or effects must not interfere with the screenshot, and these will only be added for presentation, for example giving your screenshot on a wide-screen background would only add to presentation. Voters are reminded the content of the screenshot is what is being judged, not editing it afterward in a paint program.
  • No mapshots. (In other words, no using a full map shot of an entire scenario/map)
  • MODPACKS: The winner of the last round also selects whether mods including graphics are allowed. If he decides against it, no modpacks that add in new unit graphics are allowed. This includes downloads from The Blacksmith, or Steam Workshop. If he chooses that mods should be allowed in the following round, then any modpacks are allowed, even when they add graphics.
  • The use of AOK: HD Edition IS Allowed. The Use of new graphics from the expansions The Forgotten and African Kingdoms, however, falls under the restriction of a category with mods allowed.
  • Forgotten Empires counts as a mod in this regulation.
  • AokTS, Renaissance, GeniED, and other forms of data editing are allowed
  • When it comes to data editing you may use it to your advantage when making a screenshot however when it comes to creating and/or unlocking new/hybrid the usage of new SLPs is not allowed.
  • No taking screenshots from campaigns/scenarios that you did not create.
  • This is an open competition. No need to sign up, just post a screenshot that abides to the selected category.
  • Screenshots must be made only for this competition. No using screenshots previously taken for any reason. You may, however, take screenshots from your campaign in the works that you have announced, but it must be taken specifically for this competition.
  • The usual time for entries is 5 days, but if there have been less than 2 screenshots submitted, it will get extended.
  • Competition and voting statuses will close at 11:59pm forum time on the designated deadline.
  • The previous winner and the selector of the category MAY vote.
  • If you are participating in the current competition, you CAN vote for fellow contestants if you want (when you're feeling so humble), but you CAN NOT vote for yourself for obvious reasons.
  • No editing of your screenshot once it has been posted as an entry for the competition (no editing the content/scenery). However Editing typos/spelling errors in text included with/in your screenshot IS allowed
  • If you are caught trying to make smurf accounts or getting people to sign up to AoKH so they can vote for you, and they never post and they only use their registration to give you a vote, you will be disqualified from the week, and for a further length of time based on my discretion . All voters must have an open account at HG. Trying to fix the ballot is a very serious rule, and any attempt to break this rule will have serious consequences.
  • No flaming to other forummers. Criticism of people's work must be constructive.
  • Don't whine if you did not win, better luck next time.
  • Have fun, and try hard!

    _________Special Rounds_________

    We have decided to add some new Special one-off rounds to celebrate the work of some of the most commit AOK designers - The Modders. These people put years of work into making detailed graphics effectively giving the AOK player an almost brand new game to play. These Special Rounds celebrate the release of some of the biggest Mod Packs released to the AOKH Blacksmith. We are using these rounds as a way of celebrating the exception abilities of AOK Modders and the fantastic way that people are able to expand our beloved game even 10 years after it's initial release. It also opens up our long standing contest to those scenario designers who don't necessarily like the vanilla scenario editor of AOK.

    Each Special round focuses on one Mod Pack chosen by the Host. There are no theme's for these rounds however, each entry must show the new graphics and features of the Modpack.

    Rules
  • Follow all CSC rules unless otherwise stated here.
  • There is no theme in the Special Rounds but you must...
    Use the Mod Pack chosen for the Special round
    Show at least one new graphic from the new Modpack
  • Anybody can enter a screenshot - Even if you won the previous round
  • These rounds are Special Rounds. The winner will not get to choose the new theme but instead, the winner of the round before will choose the theme.
  • If there is a Tie and the previous winner has enter a screenshot the voting will go to Deadlock and the head judge (the Host) will decide on the winning screenshot.


    _________Useful Info_________

  • To take a screenshot, press the "Print Screen" on your keyboard - the picture will be then saved under "Screenshots" in your AoK files (My Computer -> Progam Files -> Microsoft Games -> Age of Empires II -> Screenshot)
  • F11 removes the game time from view. F4 removes the player scores.

    Zetnus is right, the ice and hills look surprisingly good for being so empty.

    Still, I like Possidon's screenshot better, you were lucky with the theme, the selected pine is not very noticeable. On a grass map it could have ruined the screenshot, but the snow hides it so well that I wouldn't have seen it without Arnas' comment.

    MrMew's is not bad either, similar to Tanks' one. I don't know of any way to make a field of ice look better either, so no criticism about the emptiness there.

    Snow and Ice are probably the hardest terrains to work with because there's almost nothing you can do with it - Especially if you're wanting thick snow, and not the broken up, clumpy snow that layers the grass/dirt/road terrains.

    I like Possidon's screenshot. It's much more detailed than mine. However, Mine's supposed to be in the north pole area, unlike Possidon's. There's not supposed to be a lot going on in my screenshot. I was tempted to touch it up with some kind of snow effect in an image editor but I didn't know if this'd be allowed.

    For Possidon's, I think the edges of the trees would look better if they extended outside of the camera's view. Right now I get the sense it's quite literally two strips of trees, and I don't know if this is intended or not.

    I also notice he's accidentally selected one of the trees.

    Sadly I can't even see MrMew's entry whilst I am at work.

    Edit: I've looked over the rules, And yeah I think adding snow falling would be breaking the rules.

    On the subject of that, however; Would it be possible to use an eye-candy mod? No new graphics, however things such as fire, smoke, piles of snow from rooftops, bamboo stumps, maybe even footsteps for putting over snow, if I can find the ID numbers. Would this be acceptable as it's still AoK graphics?

    This is acceptable. Things such as your EEE Mod are allowed as they don't add new graphics into the game.

    Snow on its own is hard to work with but blame that on the editor. That's why in Blood of the Bear I added splotches of grass or dirt to break it up and make it look more appealing.

    Breaking it up to make it look appealing is pretty much mandatory with Snow, unless you're doing something like me and implying the entire landscape is snow and ice.

    Thinking about it, I could of used the ICE beta-object. It wouldn't of added much but it'd be placed in the water and at least add something

    It's actually quite surprising what you can do with the seemingly limited number of wintry objects. I've always believed that you can get away with less terrain mixing in a snowy map than you could otherwise (on a snowy map the snow is supposed to be a dominant feature).

    For a large wintry map, you need a solid mix of snow, snow grass, snow dirt, and leaves. Dirt 2 and dirt 3 can also be used sparingly. In terms of eyecandy, rocks, snow pines, and any bare oak or pine tree graphic are good. The beta ice objects are good, as are the odd small pool of water, because the blend of water with snow actually looks pretty sweet. Mountains look good if you stick snow pines on them to keep the wintry feel. Most generic gaia objects such as skeletons, signs, broken carts, etc still have a niche as well.

    One other really underrated thing about wintry maps is the separate snow graphics that buildings have. That alone was one of the coolest parts of the game to me growing up.

    In spring there is still a little snow on the ground, so I'd have a mix between the greenery and the remnants of winter (as opposed to the total verdant landscape of summer). Depends on the region of which you think, though - I may be a little too used to spring in Maine, where you still have snow in mid-to-late April
