*CLOSED* RRRR What does it mean? Render Contest

Welcome to the RRRR What does it mean? Render contest!

First, what is RRRR?
RRRR stand for Random Runtime Roulette Renders, and it's a contest here at the DAZ forums that have been running for three years and counting, but in this content we're gonna find out multiple fun and alternative explainations to the letter RRRR. Does it stand for Reliant Robin Roundabout Racing? Does it stand for Rabbit Russian Racketeering Racoons? You decide! The idea for this contest is courtesy of our very own Karibou!

 

So, make your pull of 4 items, pull your LBs (Luck Bastards), the current lucky bastard standing is below, and make some great and fun images, it’s not harder than that.

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 items from your list (your Runtime/My Library) for your start pull . You can use items from any store.

Randomizer that works well: 
Random Org

Randomizer where you get all numbers in one draw: random

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!

Lucky Bastard Rule!
If you have sticky lucky bastards, you pull one extra item for each LB you have, simple as that. 


Explaination of Lucky Bastards
Lucky Bastards, or LBs, are a form of Handicap system which makes the contest a little more difficult for those who have won. 
For Luci45, it isn't just a little bit more difficult, but on the other hand, she won al lot.

Current Lucky Bastard standing

Name Current LBs
luci45 7
Karibou 2
Gopherus 1 
MelanieL
barbult 1
purrkat 1 
Chanteur-de-Vent 1 
Ken OBanion 1 
Lyam 1

How to play?
You pull, you compose and you Render. You post your images and pulls in this thread, but the entry should be posted in the Entries only thread

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.

Poses, Expressions and textures/colors
If you pull a pose pack, an expression pack or a texture/color pack, you only need to use one of them, not all. For example if you pull 500 expressions for V4, use one, if you pull 128 colors for Frappe Hair, use one.

Accidenty breaking the TOS
If your entry is removed by the forum mods because it accidentally, not deliberate, broke the TOS, you do not have to redo that entry but can move on and make a new pull. 

The rules of madness! 
Now you have successfully and randomly 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. As we have a theme on the contest, the render should in some way touch that theme.

The contest categories! 
There are two categories Best and Funniest. Every image will compete in both categories.

Contest duration!
It stats now at Sunday September 11, and will go on until Sunday October 30 at 23:59:59 local DAZ time.

Yes, we have prizes, thanks to our sponsors!

This months sponsors so far:
Totte is sponsoring with one item in each tier from his store 
Dumor3D is sponsoring with one item in each tier from his store.
Luci45 is sponsoring with a $30 DAZ Store GC
ArtCollab is sponsoring with a $40 DAZ Store GC

More to know?
I will edit this when new info on sponsors arrive.

Maximum number of entries? 
In the contest, the maximum number of enteries are Nine!

Are you ready to render in 3….2….1…..go!

    Lyam #1 - For once we can be on the side of the devil! I love it - nice work smiley

    Luci45 #1 - wow, that may have been a squeeze but you certainly succeeded. Great work. (And after all those LB's, I see you got carried away with the number of R''s in the title too... cheeky)

  • luci45luci45 Posts: 2,400

    Thanks, Gopherus (I love Restaurant at the End of the Universe), MelanieL (at least one more R seemed call-for.)

    Gopherus #1 You may have missed most of the Summer contest, but you are back with all the awesome weirdness! So, is the large mosquito sniffing Danika or just doing the usual blood sucking?
    Lyam#1 - Excellent! A well-deserved punishment. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

    Pull #2:

    The Neighbour's Yard

  • Thanks Luci, your sword wielder strongly resembles Kevin Bacon, as may be expected as he stars in so many ensemble pieces.

    Only a female mosquito would suck blood (for the sake of her children), i m thinking she s going for the butt bite after sniffing DEET on the shoulders.

  • LyamLyam Posts: 137

    Luci - Wow really great render.  If I tried rendering that many characters on my computer, it would throw a big tantrum.

    Thank you everyone for the encouraging comments.
