QuakeCon2001 Model Contest
9:28 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story

Level designer Paul Jaquays of id has updated his .plan with details of the QuakeCon2001 Model Contest. With top prizes from Discreet (makers of 3D studio Max), nVidia and Linksys as well as gaining the respect and adulation of your peers in the modelling community, there were plenty of top-class entries. Here's the details from the .plan:

The contest, sponsored by Discreet, NVidia, Linksys, id Software, and Polycount challenged model makers around the world to produce models which could be used as the centerpieces of maps; models which would demand that maps be built to house them; models which would literally knock the contest judges’ socks off.

The 18 model makers, who entered submitted 22 separate models or suites of models, comprised of over 50 individual model components. “The contestants really outdid themselves this year. The talent they exhibited was overwhelming,” said contest coordinator Paul Jaquays of id Software. “I can’t wait to see these models start appearing in game maps.”

We'll have to wait and see how the models are used in upcoming maps, but in the mean time a 'gallery' map has been created using all the contest entries. This is available for your viewing pleasure - or to allow you to mindlessly shoot at the entries - from id's ftp site. For details of the winners and the prizes they received check out Paul's .plan.
