Ladies and Gentlemen!

I know you have all waited for this, agonized and sleepless from withdrawal symptoms, but fear not more, the next RRRR is ready to rock!

This round is themeless, now your imagination can run wild!

For all who have no clue what the RRRR is, it stands for “Random Runtime Roulette 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/My Library). You can use items from any store.

Lucky Bastard Rule!
Anyone who won a prize (place 1-6) last RRRR, the Refused sports version needs to pull one extra item just for being a lucky bastard.

Randomizer that works well:random.org
Randomizer where you get all numbers in one draw:All at once

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 4 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.

The contest categories!


There are two categories, Funniest and Best, you get it. A fun render might maybe not be a super great render but will cause the viewer to fall of the chair laughing.

Contest duration!


It stats now, and will go on until Sunday June 22 23:59:29 local DAZ time.

Yes, we have prizes, thanks to our sponsors!
This months sponsors so far:


RawArt is sponsoring with item, not bundle, from his store to a winner, visit his store.
Alessandro_AM had donated one of each of the following items to the winning pool: RPC Volume 1: Fallen Trees, Ivy and Vines, Wild, Animals 1 by AM, The Moose, Kangaroos and Joeys & Warthog by AM. Give him a cheer and visit his store.
Aave Nainen has donated one item from her store to the prize pot, pay her store a visit.
Estroyer has put in a pack of her M5 poses.
Jaderail has put in $20 in DAZ GCs
Novica has chipped in $15 in DAZ GCs.
MelanieL has chipped in $10 in DAZ GCs.
Luci45 has put in $20 in DAZ GCs
KaribousBoutique has put in $20 in DAZ GCs
Scott-Livingston has chipped in $10 in DAZ GCs.
Ken OBanion has thrown in $50 in DAZ GCs.

I myself (Totte) will add an item of choice from my store for the winner in each category (which I cannot say where it is to avoid making this a commercial thread), but winners will be noticed by PMs when the time comes. And I just remembered that I won a Manga Studio 5 in a contest at another site and I have that as a prize as well. This is a lot of goodies tis run!

I hope we can attract some more sponsors.
Sponsors may of course participate in the contest, their own decision. As Ken O Bannion so elegantly put it, sponsors play for keeps.

If you want to sponsor this RRRR, send me a PM or post in the thread!

More to know?


I will might edit this when new info on sponsors arrive.

Maximum number of entries?

Yes, this time we limit the number of entries per person to seven, seven the number should be.

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

Entries!
Post your entries here together with your pull and your comments, and feel free to comment on other peoples work as well.
We post images in the Entries only thread with tag and name.

    As long as the for items are visible, you can, and will add more items, and shaders are also OK. As so many happy new faces join in, I will add some links to previous RRRR contests in the main post (I know Ken OBanion made a list somewhere)

    Fairy Nanny
    tag:luci45#1
    Giselle thought it that because she could fly, being a nanny for the Kuril boys would not be so difficult. The boys soon realized that she would catch them whenever they fell off the roof, and so played with even more reckless abandon. Giselle found the job quite challenging and somewhat rewarding.
    "They are really nice boys when you get to know them. But a bit frisky. Maybe the family should have stayed in the ocean where the water slowed them down a little..."

    Pulled:
    Vandalized Parkside Station
    OL For Genesis
    Kuril
    High Drama One
    Enchanted Wings

    Also Used:
    Summerwear for Genesis (textures altered in Photoshop)
    Esidor Hair
    Frivolous Forties shoes (Forties Fatale texture)
    Sash from Miss Fisher's Wardrobe Possibilities
    Fabricator and Totally Bazaar
    Super Dress and Legging Tights
    Photoshop and Filter Forge

    Note: I made some changes. The bottom one is the one I like better and is going in the entries thread.

    Just one question: can we use postwork on the works? And perhaps also stock images like for the background? I'd love to use several items alongside what I will draw with the generator, but due to my machine's resources state at the time being (yes, the hard drives are almost full because of the models!!!), I'd either have to ommit them or render them separately and compile in a graphics software. Would it be okay? I like using brushes and stock images with my renders. Is it allowed?

    If all sites are honoured, I expect freebies to be allowed too. Am I correct?

    My first draw gave the following:
    99: http://www.daz3d.com/kimberly-for-genesis-complete (I think I'll use Kimberly as the morph and texture, her haircut and the light; however, the pose seems to require some tweaking if I'm going to make an image I have in mind - is it alright?)
    100: http://www.daz3d.com/magus
    47: http://www.daz3d.com/kids-4-basicwear
    46: http://www.daz3d.com/daz-piglet (I think using just the figure, its texture and a tweaked pose is okay, if not, please tell me)
