Quake Map Model Contest
8:21 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Id Software's Paul Jaquays has updated his .plan file with details on a new contest at Polycount, an excellent modelling site for first person shooters like Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament. The contest asks fans to vote on level elements for Quake 3: Arena. Here's a clip from the .plan explaining more:

Polycount has opened up public judging for the QuakeCon2000 Map Object Model Contest. For those that can't remember, The QuakeCon Model Contest began a month before QuakeCon, the models were sent to Rogue13 at Polycount to be put in a gallery for display, and they were to be voted on by the crowd in the BYOC area at QCon. However, things didn't work out as planned, so Polycount has exercised some coding skillz and put a public voting system in place. Check out the details of the contest and vote on the contest page and check out these cool categories for winners:

Sweetest Eye Candy - best effects, skin, in the showing

Most Awesomely Gothic - the best Gothic model

Industrial Magic - the best Base or Industrial style model

The Real Thing - the best model for a "realistic" level or mod

Most Likely to be Mistaken for a Marital Aid - you probably can get this one

Most Versatile - goes with everything

Most Artistic - Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Picasso better make room for this

That's Really Weird - homage to the unusual

Head on over to the contest page at Polycount and check out the objects themselves. Some are very well done, others look a bit clumsy. After flipping through the prospects, make sure to vote using their easy form.
