RRRR - But You Promised - Render Contest *closed*

edited February 17 in Art Studio

A new year is around the corner, and maybe you will make some promises you cannot hold this time too. This round if RRRR has the theme "But You Promised". 

RRRR stands for Random Runtime Roulette Renders, and it's a content that has been running for over five years and we invite anyone to enter. This is not the usual "make a very nice render contest" but more like "tell a really great story, often fun, with your render"!

How does it work?
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.

Current Lucky Bastard standing 
A new year means Lucky Bastards are reset, so we all start witl a clean sheet.

A reminder about the LB thawing rules.
(1) You will never pull more than 7 LBs, even if you have 12, never pull more that 7, seven is the number you never pull more than.
(2) You always lose half of the new LBs at every thawing (between rounds), this is to prevent the LBs from being too sticky.
(3) You need to make at least one entry for thawing to be in place.

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 starts now at  Wednesday December 25 2019, and will go on until Sunday February 16 2020 at 23:59:59 local DAZ time.

Yes, we have prizes, thanks to our sponsors!

This months sponsors so far:
Totte (Code 66) is sponsoring with two items from his store


RRRR is looking for more sponsors, so if you're a PA or just a happy person, please consider sponsoring, and sponsors can play for keeps remember.

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

Do you want to sponsor the RRRR?
Please chip in, sponsors can play, they are even encouraged to play! Sponsors also can vote.

Maximum number of entries? 
I think for this round

    I never saw Grantchester. It looks like something I would like.

    If priests and vicars can leave the church for weddings and crime investigations, they can surely do a few baptisms while they are out and about.

    I so agree with Luci on that one they should be able to do baptisms while they are out and about!!! (On the fly sort of speaking)laugh

     

  • TotteTotte Posts: 10,904

    heh - you both should see it, one of the top 10 British crime series in my opinion, together with Vera, Endeavour, Midsommer Murders, Lewis, Morse, Inspector Linley, Death in Paradise and a bunch more.
    I know in the US BritBox seems to have most of them (they took them down from Netflix and other services)

  • SaphirewildSaphirewild Posts: 5,172

    We only get mostly Canadian content here on Netflix!

  • GopherusGopherus Posts: 964

    No Grantchester here either, just Lewis, morse, lindley, death in paradise, and father brown...

    sometimes the priests delegate the baptisms to the deacons....

    as well as the blessing of the animals and the chevys or in this case the mopeds

  • luci45luci45 Posts: 2,327

    Looks like I can get first season of Grantchester on Amazon Prime Video.

    Cecil and his assistant Snowflake are casting for his latest remake of Aladdin, Aladdin 2020.  He had promised the Chow sisters private auditions for the roles of the dancing Harpies. And so, he is determined to keep that promise.
