We proudly present to you...

RRRR Unleashed!

This is a round of RRRR without any theme. You can choose whatever the gods of random toss in your face in your favor!

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 1-3) last RRRR, the RRRR Back to Renders needs to pull one extra item for each placement just for being a lucky bastard.

There have been a wish

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 contest 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 (plus any Lucky bastard pulls), 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 the theme of the contest.

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 January 11, 2015 at 23:59:59 local DAZ time.

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

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 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 nine, nine the number should be. I know some of us really want to play during the holidays!

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 this thread is later used for voting. An update to the entries only post, we can now also post a little story, up to maximum 6 lines, as that would make some renders in the funniest easier to vote at.

    ...and an anything goes one at that. Though I did really like the theme of last month's


    ...reminds me, I've got more stuff to put on the list. before I do my 1st pull.

    Also going to push to get more than one pic submitted (creating a "bubblenado" by hand was a lot of tedious work - going to try and keep things a little simpler this time).

    I'm here, but I've got to update my list. I bet I have dozens of new things to add - mostly PC party freebies and stuff.

    Well, Totte, if it isn't "Learn from the Real corny cob boat!", what is it???? You know it's not like I just cobbled together a random list of conforming words or anything. %-P :roll:

  • barbultbarbult Posts: 16,129
    edited December 1969

    OK, I updated my list - 148 new items since last RRRR. Yikes! They weren't all freebies, either. I see that I parted with considerable cash along the way. I have now learned the downside of getting all those freebies during PC Anniversary. I don't own the required model for all those texture sets, so now I draw things that I can't use. I had to scratch 2 of my items and redraw. I keep collecting the ongoing weekly freebies anyway. Who knows when the model might become free so I can use those textures.

    Draw Number 1:
    Aged - The Secret Garden Gateway - scratch - I don't have the required model
    Morphing Mask for Genesis and Genesis 2
    Mystical Sorceress Poses for V4
    Sophisticated Celia - scratch - I don't have the required model
    T-Shirt Dress for Genesis
    Before and After Work for Working Man
    LB: Dragon's Tower

    ...212 and that's not counting all the Ron's Bushes I just DL'd

    Ironic as that was the number of bubbles I created for the last RRRR challenge.

    Awesome! I was hoping one of these contests would pop up. I love doing these. :)

    My first draw:

    232: Moroccan Dreams for Michael 4
    253: Old West Sheriff's Office Interior
    448: Yamaki FDR2 Fusion
    665: Old West Undertakers Interior Poses

    This... should be interesting. Will probably take me a few days.

    Did you know that there is a 3D bubble product in the store? http://www.daz3d.com/3d-bubbles
  • kyoto kidkyoto kid Posts: 35,048
    edited December 1969

    ...have it but it only includes a single bubble prop so it wouldn't have helped in the placement at all.

    I just used a sphere primitive (which I instanced) with the opacity tuned down and upped the reflection value as well as added a reflectivity map.

    Pull #1

    #4945 Textures for Mech Girl for Genesis 2 Female(s) (#19115)
    #4597 Skyrider (#2281)
    #2251 Fantasy Weapons Pack #4 (Rendo??)
    #393 Men of Action for David (#2679) (No, NOT AGAIN!!!)
    LB1: #1954 Dream Home: Kitchen Appliances (#4961)
    LB2: #1041 Badge Control for The new Adventure (#13960)

    Let's see, a texture set, a refurbished prop, something I need to look up, old stuff, more refurbished stuff and a worthless freebee, what a pull! Might post it in the Jen thread as well, two refurbished ones, and steal an idea from barbult too, ROFL!

    Good to so this getting a good turnout of pulls so far. I'm so looking forward to the renders, as I sort out my inventory after yesterday. DIM claims 1063 items, half of them are duplicates, and the rest are how-to and utilities, lol. How do I do a render staring the 'GoZ for Daz Studio 32bit, and Using Auto-fit G1 to G2F lesson, lol.

    35 instead of 40, eh, close enough. There about in approximation, lol. :coolsmile:

    You drop everything unsuitable from the list before pulling or repull when you pull stuff like that.

    Yay, a new round! Congratulations to last time's winners. Keep it up! :-)

    Anyway, there's something I missed last time, and I'm not sure if this is terribly obvious, but...

    Totte said:

    You can use items from any store.

    ...would that mean any vendor's store here @DAZ or any store including Rendo or others? I'm asking because the latter would really dial the madness up to eleven for me, now that I think of all the environments and large structures I have from them. ;-)

    All Stores!
    (DAZ, Rendo, YURDigital, RDNA, OnTarget) Just ask me when I pulled a three huge environments from three different stores, that was madness 12.9!

    Pull 1:

    West Park
    T2FF
    AKA the A6M2 floatplane fighter from Rendo
    Roll and Ball

    Sounds like a rather benign start compared to what I've seen from some of your pulls ;-)

    I don't know, you turn your back for ten minutes ... and suddenly another RRRR has started and three people have already posted entries!
    Well, I've just updated my list with the PC Anniversary purchases so here goes...
    Pull #1:

    549 = Carnival Extravaganza 4 (= Performer for V4, La Calesita, Carousel Poses, Pickup Truck 1930, Revelrie Midway, Old Busted Joints)
    2413 = Baroness Jewels
    2469 = Dark Passion for Genesis 2 Male(s)
    1323 = Gardens of Poseidon - Super Bundle (= Corals, Reef Rocks, Plants, Invertebrates, Set Pack 1)

    Oh great, two large bundles! Well that should give me something to get my teeth into I suppose...

    Oh I should also say:
    @Totte #1 - great start: nice render (and those appliances are so grunged up I'm amazed anyone spotted the difference)
    @icecrmn #1 - nicely done, you've fit the Cloister in very neatly (is this your first RRRR by the way? I don't recall seeing your name before)
    @Luci45 #1 - that's a clever idea, I love those lurid purple/pink heads!
