[Contest] RRRR - Unlikely Occupations - with prizes

Psst, you are right, the RRRR is off again with a wild and crazy contest
This time we run a themed contest, and the theme is Unlikely Occupations. (Thanks barbult for the idea, and Karibou for starting it off in that direction).

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

Lucky Bastard standings
Luci45: 5 LB
Barbult: 3 LB
Dumor3D; 2 LB
MelanieL: 2 LB
zawarkal: 1 LB
Tarina Kivi: 1 LB
emsim: 1 LB
gopherus: 1 LB

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 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, 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 August 2 at 23:59:59 local DAZ time.

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


barbult has put in $20 in DAZ Store Credits
Karibou has put in $20 in DAZ Store Credits
ART Collaborations has put in $20 in DAZ Store Credits
diomede64 has put in $10 in DAZ Store Credits
Luci45 has put in $25 in DAZ Store Credits
MelanieL has put in $20 in DAZ Store Credits
KenOBanion has put in $100 in DAZ Store Credits
zarcondeegrissom has put in $40 in DAZ Store Credits
Totte is sponsoring with one item for his store to each winner.
Dumor3D is sponsoring with an item from his store to each winner.
ARTCollaborations is sponsoring with one item for their store to each winner.

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 edit this when new info on sponsors arrive.

Maximum number of entries?

Yes, this time we limit the number of entries per person to twelve, twelve is the holy number for this contest.

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. We also post the entries in this thread with a full list of the randomly picked items and also, which is a free choice, other used items.

    help a newbie- please :red:
    Ok, I'm too stupid, how do I get those file names as a text into a txt file, if not copy and paste every single one, and where do I find the itemized history for a first step...

    You can select all in DIM and right-click and do "export to csv". Or you copy from each order email, but that is what you can do after you setup your first base list.
