I stuck my finger in my Runtime Pie three times and came up with this:

Oktapussi’s Bell of Doom by Traveler at RuntimeDNA
Channing’s Toast & Jam by tabbycat at ShareCG
Housefly from Content Paradise summer2010

Not a great start because the Fly was only free for a brief time, and I’m not sure about the others, but this is where I’m heading. Be back soon-ish.

Nice start to the challenge.  Taking 3 disparate items and making a cohesive render can be quite difficult.  All your links check out. Entry accepted.

Well choosing how I can randomly get an item seems to be proving harder than actually making an image.
My folders tell me there’s 7912 zips, rars and exes on my HD (I shudder to think how that translates in my runtime). But beyond my paid fors, which are all listed in seperate word files, I only have folders listing where my free items came from and who made them. Ordering any of it into numbers would be daunting (not to mention time-consuming). Even my runtime isn’t ordered the ‘classic way’.

Any suggestions on a method of selection that I could use?

You could simply open up any of your libraries folders, Hold down the down arrow to rapidly scroll through the list, pull your finger away at a indeterminate time, and whatever file is highlighted is what you use.

Okay, I gave this a shot. Combination of random button pressing and use of the randomizer solely on my props folder (the least organised of my folders) ...
First try pulled up my ‘Celestial’ folder. Randomizer chose the 5th folder within: DNA Xmas Snowflakes.
Second run gave me the ‘Food’ folder. Randomizer chose Chriscox’s beverage cans.
Third go and I land on a set of tombstones.

Random enough? raspberry

I’m in, anything random wink

My random pull:
Freebee contest
#2952 : The Wrangler
#657 : Vertical Living Repair Shop
#769 : Accent Tables

Now a question, as the random pull “The Wrangler” is a texture set with Boundless Journey as “required product”, how is this supposed to be handled as it is a random pull. Is “Boundless Journey” automatically added as it is required or should I redraw that? Any other option sounds rather difficult to handle wink

In the case of drawing a texture set; I will allow the use of the product it is designed for.

The main reason we limit the number of paid for items; is because this is a freebie contest and we don’t want the paid for items to overshadow the freebies used.  Another reason is to show that freebie content can be just as good quality as paid for content.

This is good B…that way, the freebie can still be used and counted.
