* CLOSED* RRRR Chain render contest - round two

Introducing RRRR chain render contest - round two

RRRR (Random Runtime Roulette Renders) chain render contest is almost like the tradition RRRR contest, but as always, with a twist. The twist this time is that for your second render, you only pull three items and reuse one from your first pull, and for your third pull you reuse one item from the second. The item reused can be any of the four items, which means that you could be using one item in all your renders.

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) for your start pull . You can use items from any store.
Now you can start, you can enter up to 5 times, remember to reuse one item from the previous pull for your second pull an onward up to five renders.

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.

Being a Lucky Bastard!
If you got a prize last RRRR contest you are considered a lucky bastard and that will give you a special bonus, an extra item, which means any Lucky Bastard will have five items in the pool, not four. Still only one that is in the chain.



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 and that there are two categories, best and Funniest but every render automatically enters on both.

Contest duration!

It stats now, and will go on until Sunday December 1 23:59:59 DAZ local time.

Yes, we have prizes, thanks to our sponsors!

    ...OK if you won in last month's challenge do we need to make extra draws? I think that was kind of a cool idea, ups challenge factor a bit more.

    Well, for Pull #1:
    I've got 4157 (M4 Ensign) , 25 (Dragonfish), 1883 (Ruffle Bikini), and 494 (Morgan for Victoria 4 and Genesis)
    Hmm, this is almost too easy. I've got a man (Edit, man's outfit), a woman, a bikini, and a fish. A big fish. I take it that it doesn't usually turn out this conveniently.
    I'm going to disqualify myself anyway since I'm sponsoring, but I'll go ahead and play around to get a different approach to the obvious.

    I really enjoyed the renders from the last contest. After the PA and PC sales I have a lot of new stuff in my Runtime.

    Pull #1:

    364 - Fatale
    500 - The Heart of the Matter
    220 - Shantara City
    110 - Crazy Deal Marrakesh 2

    The only item I have used in a render is The Heart of the Matter.

    Well, Totte has said it'd be okay to go ahead and participate. Since it's done by voting and not a panel of judges being placed in an awkward position , I'll go ahead and join the competition.

    I think what's also neat about this is looking at the products other folks have. Hopefully I won't ever get the random numbers for the skimpwear I have that I got for kitbashing! (Be my luck to get 3 out of 4 items for that.)

    Here is my first pull and it looks like a good one:

    Scandalous Makeup Set
    Supersuit Fantasy Pack
    Chouihani

    I think I will do a story (probably incoherent) this time. %-P

    Gaaaahhhhh!! DSON keeps crashing Poser and, even better, when it doesn't crash, I can't get Genesis clothing to appear in Poser via DSON anyway. No geometry appears. Had this problem a while back, but it was a simple fix... now... not so much!! And, alas, Eth doesn't have DS materials. This is making me cranky!! I'm going to get grumpy if I have to use the fitting room...

    EDIT: Reinstalled DSON and Reality... Seems to be working now... RRRR always makes me push the boundaries, lol!!

    The entry thread link is the same as the last round. Is that right?

    I hope I have time to participate. I have no idea what's in my runtime now. Pretty sure I at least doubled it between binge buying in October here and various other sites. And my husband thinks he'd get addicted if he started this stuff...
