Quote from: Nardo69 on November 06, 2009, 04:32:26 AMHello and Welcome to the First Thematic Competition here at SC4Devotion! Almost on time with the third Anniversary of SC4Devotion a new Competition is starting! After the great success of the Dorfwettbewerb (village competition) at www.simforum.de that I initiated and moderated we, the Sc4Devotion Thematic Competition Team thought why not trying it here on Sc4Devotion, too? Thematic Competition means some players do the same theme with their own style. Unlike the Picture Competition in this competition village will compete against village and not against CBD, airport etc. But also unlike the Picture Competition you have the possibility to show more than "the one picture".So, here are the rules: 1. The village must be built upon a small tile (the smallest available in SC4).2. The tile is to be made by the entrants for use in this competition and therefore would not have been seen previously anywhere else.3. The tile must not be completely flat. There should be some obvious undulation in the landscape (river banks, shorelines etc do not count)4. Upon the tile build a village with a maximum population of 2,000 sims.5. The village is to lie along the shores of a body of water, whether sea, lake, river or creek. Water may be In-game, or TPW any kind of ploppable water or canals (or a combination).6. The village centre is to include the following: -a church -a cemetery -a town hall -a village shopping area and small town plaza/park -a sports field7. The village is to have three road connections to neighbours. You may also add rail or hwy (ave, hwy, RHW) connections however the rail/hwy must be passing through the tile and not end in the village.8. The village must be functional and not purely eyecandy. You will be required to show a screenshot of the towns income and expenditure. We do not expect the village to be profitable however income must not be less than 60% of expenses. Income cheats are not to be used and you may be asked to explain any large income items that appear.9. Each participant is to show:-1 overview pic showing the entire tile/city. Please mark on the map the location of the buildings etc requested in 6 above.-1 pic showing the income/expenditure as outlined in point 8 above.-At least 9 pictures of your village and surrounds (zoom 3, 4 or 5). All of the buildings requested in 6 above must be shown in at least one picture. Individual pictures are not required for each as you maybe be able to show more than one in a picture. Regardless, at least nine pictures are still required.10.Entries are to be shown in an individual thread opened underthe Participants board. Entries Close Thursday 3 December 2009Voting will be by poll and will be open to all members. Thepoll will open 6 December 2009 and close 13 December 2009 (1)The team will check the entrants if they met the rules or not. Each team member may take part in the competition, too, but concerning his very own entrant team members won't use their privileges and will be treated as all other entrant ny the remaining team members. (1) If the total amount should be too big to handle we might have to split the fields into groups for a preliminary round. However this is just an option just in case of
Quote from: tooheys on March 05, 2010, 04:53:21 PMWelcome to the City of Vulhop!Vulhop is a city in the Empire of Leviathan. With almost 2.520.000 it is one of the biggest cities in the Empire. It is not only well known for it's preservation of 19th century architecture, but also for it's modern buildings. The city is a mix of both and is considered as one of the most beautiful cities. In addition to that, Vulhop has the highest density of millionaires in Leviathan.Anyway... let us have a look at the map of the city center, first:The first thing you will probably notice is the boulevard, leading to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. On the bottom left you will find the second church, directly in front of the canal.You might also spot the huge park with a small lake in it.Now we'll have some closer looks as well:I hope you liked the little tour,Fabian
Quote from: tooheys on March 05, 2010, 05:13:41 PMOk, here is my final entry, subject to committee approval.First the overview:To the left you can see the Kaiser Wilhelm on its elevated site. At the other end of the avenue is St Barts (although known by the locals as Little Willy)Next are my additional pics with a piece of one of the two churches in each.So something a little different to my normal style.Hope you enjoy.Dave
Quote from: tooheys on March 05, 2010, 05:01:08 PMHere you go, for all your judging pleasure Here's the overview: And the shots with the churches in them: For some reason, most of the people in the plaza don't show up. I was hoping to have more pictures, but due to technical difficulties with my laptop (I can't access the HD), this is all I've recovered that fits the rules. If you really like what you see, you can visit my MD (the last pages are dedicated to Grantview, the pics just don't fit the rules). I hope that the pics I do have fit the rules. You can bet I'll be back for the 3rd Competion! -Jordan

It can be placed anwhere except immediately next to the Kaiser Wilhelm cathedral. There must be a gap of at least 10 tiles.5.Buildings in the town are not to exceed the height of the Kaiser Wilhelm cathedral.

This includes mosaics.The following is allowed:-cropping/cutting/resizing of pic's-borders-labels-Additionally, soft sharpening may be used to restore shrunken images to their original look.
