Introducing RRRR summer 2013
Now you will wish it will rain all summer!
RRRR (Random Runtime Roulette Renders) summer 2013 is here to lighten up your summer, at least most of it. Forget beach 2013, this is the real deal. This time it’s no themes involved, just be fun and have fun, but as always, there is a string attached, real below to find out what.

Who can play?

Anyone can play!

How do you prepare yourself for play?

The rules are very simple, but first you need to have all your items in some kind of order in a text file, dumped from the itemized history into a text file or a spread sheet. Remove things like software, gift certs, and special plugins from the list.
Then you use a randomizer to randomly pick 4 items from your list (your Runtime). You can use items from any store.

Now you can start, you can enter up to 20 (yes, you read it right, twenty times), but beware, this is where the string is attached. For the first six entries, you pick your four items, then it starts to become more and more difficult. below is a list that shows how many items you need for each entry.

Entry 1-64 items
Entry 7
-85 items
Entry 9
-106 items
Entry 11
-127 items
Entry 13
-148 items
Entry 15
-169 items
Entry 17
-1810 items
Entry 19
-2011 items 

Lucky bastards rule: If you were among the lucky bastards that won a prize in the last RRRR, you’re so fortunate that you need to pull one extra item, yes that’s right, an extra item. If you did win two prizes last RRRR, you have to pick two extra items in this round. These are added on top of the item count directed by the entry number.

Randomizer that works well: Random Org
Randomizer where you get all numbers in one draw: www.psychicscience.org/random.aspx

There are some situations where you allowed to redraw, these are:

- You picked something that doesn’t work, broken thing, only works in a version / software not used etc etc.

- You picked a software or add-on to a software or anything you should have filtered out from the list.

- You picked only huge environment props and will not be able to render a scene without crashing.

- You picked an item you already have been using in two RRRR renders in this content and that was picked randomly. Three is a curse - rule!

Bundles

If you pull a bundle, use two three complete items from it, or more if you like, but you do not need to use all, but only picking a hairpin from V4 Complete Bundle is “too little”. Clarification: A bundle still counts as only one pulled item.

The rules of madness!

Now you have successfully picked your items, make a scene, you can add other items as well but the one you picked should be prominent or cleverly used. Render it, post it and make us all laugh! Remember though that the renders must follow the TOS of the forum.

Contest duration!
It stats now, and will go on until Sunday August 4 23:59:59 DAZ local time. The RRRR will bring you over two months brain frying madness.

Yes, we have prizes, thanks to our sponsors!

This months sponsors so far:

FirstBastion: Item from his store to the grand prize winner.
ART Collabprations: $10 DAZ GC for each category winner.
Jaderail: $100 DAZ GC to the prize pool.

Any sponsors are welcome to add to the prize pool, just PM me.

If you did win two prizes last RRRR, you have to pick two extra items in this round. These are added on top of the item count directed by the entry number.

 

I suppose we should be grateful that the Lucky Bastard rule doesn’t factor in where we placed in the last RRRR!  (Oh, my god, I’m giving him ideas!  Forget I said that!  I didn’t say anything!  It wasn’t me!  It was…, my Evil Twin Kevin!  Yeah, that’s the ticket…!)

First with a pull, eh?  Cool!  And here it is….

210 - Briana Culaith
1799 - Sublime Beauties
1403 - Old Cemetery
1868 - The Alchemy Chasm
And the LB “Bonus” pull:
564 - Dystopian Weapon Cache 1

You know, this actually looks do-able.  The two scenes might be a bit of a hassle, but stil….

This looks like it will be lots of fun. I don’t know how I’ll have time—I usually can only fit in 1 or 2, but I’m going to shoot for the stars—20 renders (plus a Lucky Bastard extra pick to slow me down.)

But first I had to enter Draagonstorm’s birthday contest. Mine is the only entry so far, but there’s still about week to go, so you’d better all skedaddle over there.

OK, here is my first pull:

#3272 Troglodyte Curly Horns
#586 Tail Gunner V3
#1968 L Italianos for M4 Zoot Suit(Rendo)
#2285 Niara for Victoria 5
And the Lucky bastard bonus pulls:
#581 Summerwear For Genesis
#2615 Relic Hunter - Digger James & Eagle Eye Donovan (bundle)

Six pulls and not a single environment, then I now I’ll get four4 in the next pull, but characters (2) and clothes (4).

Pull #1

387 - Dystopian Weapons Cache 1
354 - HLA Book
380 - V4 Elite Body Shapes
366 - Smartphone and Tablet

Odd number clustering… Shouldn’t be too hard to come up with an interesting idea for that group, though.

*Laughs hysterically* this will be fun

First pull:

74 - Vandalized Tube Station
64 - Ravens Watch for Night Guard
21 - Dystopia Kruger Mk 15
50 - Millenium Big Cat LE

on another note, I assume shaders isn’t part of the items so to say? I realized when I checked the numbers that I hadn’t taken away my Velvet shaders from the list, thankfully I draw that number smile

You can have shaders on the list but if you pull them you ned to use them, and you can use more items than you pulled of course. You can always look for the last winners thread to get an idea of how things are done.

I might use them on this one cosnidering my quite serious typo up in my earlier post… *laughs* I actualyl did Not draw the number for them, but realised they were still on the list when I checked the numbers I did draw (if that made any sense= I just ended up making a very serious typo… so they will def be used *grins*

And I will be checking around on the other winners too, just to see what it has looked like before smile

The Evil Blue now BALD Moderator has edited one little thing about the Summer game. See if you can spot it. I also reserve the right to toss the very first RRRR Mini contest with prize at you nice folks at some random time.

May the Gods of Random be with you.

First with a pull, eh?  Cool!  And here it is….

210 - Briana Culaith
1799 - Sublime Beauties
1403 - Old Cemetery
1868 - The Alchemy Chasm
And the LB “Bonus” pull:
564 - Dystopian Weapon Cache 1

You know, this actually looks do-able.  The two scenes might be a bit of a hassle, but stil….

And here it is….

Also Used:
DMR Briana (sword)
Briana’s Temple (her pose)
Diamond Hair
Earane Outfit for V4
Sacred Groove for Earane (textures)
David 3 (x2)
Stephanie 3 Petite
MFD for Stephanie Petite (believe it or not!)
Steampunk Cowboy for David
Hell-Bent for Leather (textures for Steampunk Cowboy)
Laques Hair
Undead for David and Stephanie Petite

A couple of asides:
1) I noticed after the scene rendered that there are a couple of ‘artifacts’ in Briana’s skin texture. Let’s just call ‘em tan-lines!
2) I don’t know why they called these morphs ‘Sublime Beauties’ - every one of those broads has a butt you could serve tea on!  And talk about your ‘Thunder-Thighs’...! Whoa!  (That’s why I replaced parts of Briana’s Culaith with the Earane Outfit; Freddy Mercury’s paean to them notwithstanding, ‘Fat-Bottomed Girls’ most definitely should not wear thongs. Aieeee!)

TAG: obanion#01

Title: “Step Aside, Little Lady, I’ll Handle This!”
Briana couldn’t decide who she wanted to kill more - the approaching zombies, or this condescending cowboy! (But she had to admit that the size of his “gun” was… rather impressive!)
