RRRR Twisted Lyrics Contest

Welcome to the RRRR Twisted Lyrics Contest!

First, what is RRRR?
RRRR stand for Random Runtime Roulette Renders, and it's a contest here at the DAZ forums that have been running for three years and counting.

This time we will delve into the unrendered territories of opps I got that wrong. I think most of us have heard a song and got the lyrics wrong, or at least know someone who has. This round, we should render an image of that misinterpreted lyrics.

I can give you an example (without ruining a good idea as this was in Swedish). 
When my son was 4, there was a Swedish radio hit about 'pay day', and the text was about this guy who pawned his stereo and lived on noodles from Tokyo at the end of the month, but on pay day, he was the King in the bar.
So the chorus went like "I'm the King, King, King in the bar".
But my son sang, loudly: "I'm the King, King, King in the bath"

So, 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.

Some good links if you're one of the few that never gets lyrics wrong

Here are the top 100 misheard lyrics 

25 Ridiculous Misheard Lyrics

... or just google it ;-)

Rules of RRRR Story render contest

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.

Current Lucky Bastard standing

Name Current LBs
luci45 4
Gopherus 3
Karibou 2
MelanieL 2
barbult 1
purrcat 1
Chanteur-de-Vent 1

 

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.

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 stats now at June 7 2016, and will go on until Sunday July 31 at 23:59:59 local DAZ time.

Yes, we have prizes, thanks to our sponsors!

Totte is sponsoring with one item in each tier from his store

    Okay, I guess we'll start this thing off!

    Pull #1:

    2829 - Gianni 6
    5714 - Old West Mercantile Interior
    5500 - Colin Hair for Genesis 3 Male(s)
    27 - Fantasy Collar Set for Genesis 3 Female(s)

    Now to run through my music library (after two or three too many Martinis), and see what I can convincingly goober up...!

     

  • Sounds interesting, although I'm not sure my misheard lyrics will ever be funny. I'm usually too serious for that (as in I tend to interpret stuff more serious than it was meant.) Maybe I'd better google instead of going through my Avantasia music library...

    Pull #1

    347 Oriental Prospherity
    728 Ron's Splashes
    694 Secret Garden Getaway
    111 Gravity Gun
    814 Island Warrior for G3M

    Ehmmmm.... Totte, are Photoshop brushes (Ron's Splashes) considered as content? Or should I repull? I don't mind either way. 

  • WonderlandWonderland Posts: 5,347

    Maybe I missed it but I can't find how many total items we use...  And is this just one image, not three like last time? Thanks.

  • 3delinquent3delinquent Posts: 355

    Yeah, how many items can I pull? Thanks.

  • If you don't have lucky bastards, it's supposed to be 4 items. If you have lucky bastards, it's one extra item per LB.

    Not really (unless you want them to), but on the other hand, if it's in the list and pulled, it's pulled (so clean the list before pulling)

     

  • luci45luci45 Posts: 2,400

    Pull #1:

    i13 Hello
    Cryptozoic Crab
    Millennium Dragon 2.0
    Sensibility for Genesis 2 Female(s)
    WorkBot (LB)
    Wild Hunt: Wildenlander for Michael 3 (LB)
    Ron's Apocalypse (LB)
    Chinatown (LB)

    This should be fun. surprise

    Ah ok, then I'll leave it as it is. I wasn't sure if it doesn't fall into the "You picked a software or add-on to a software or anything you should have filtered out from the list."  category. I suppose I'm allowed to clean it up from the list for the next pull?

    Yupp, nort working is if you will DS and pull a plugin/shader/set för Carrara or Bryce, or a shader that doesn't work in DS 4.x but only in DS 2.x

    Maybe I'm really tired, but I can't see an explanation of what is a lucky bastard? Thanks.

  • 3delinquent3delinquent Posts: 355

    That was my next question. :D  

    And how do you get them exactly?

  • TotteTotte Posts: 11,824

    Lucky Bastards, LBs.

    If you score place 1-3 in an RRRR contest, you get one for each entry scoring. If your entry climbs using the new climbing rules, you will get one for each step it climbs. The Lucky Bastards standing list shows the current standings, and this is changed each round depending on who scored and who didn't, and there is a drop off factor, 1 is dropped if you participate in an RRRR contest, and two if you had > 2 LBs (to make it playable if you get a lot).

    The LBs was invented as a handicap system to make the game more difficult for those winning a lot.

    Lucky bastards is a way to track that you have won in previous rounds. It's kind of a handicap a winner gets for the next round, so that others have a higher chance to win in comparison. So, say you win this round, you then get an LB. That means for the next round you'll have to pull 5 instead of 4 items, which makes it more difficult for you to win the next round than for people who only need to draw 4 items. If you then don't win the next round, the LB gets deleted and you're back to 4 items. But if you'll win the next round as well, then the LB number becomes 2. And you'll have to draw 6 items in the round after the next round. 

    Originally you could only gain and lose 1 LB per round, but Totte made it a bit more complicated with the new voting system, check out the last voting thread for details. 

    Edit: Looks like Totte already posted an explanation while I was still typing.

    It's more complicated, but the reason was that on several occations one player made several entries that all got votes, but no single entry got enough votes to win, and some make only one entry, a great one but only one, and scored. This change will even out the odds between those make just one great entry and those making several almost as great entries.
