Concept.. of concept.

Ok so I dont care for fictional cars much, and I generally only wanna use real cars when it comes to carmageddon but sometimes they are fun to build and use if youre in that sort of mood so.... I thought i'd ask if car makers here would be interested in an idea - its not a "competition" really, as I don't care for them, But I thought it might be kinda funny if we can get everyone to put on their peceptic cogs and look down the future and build a concept car... for carmageddon of course! (which ever carmageddon Version you want.. but im aiming more for c2 for smashability purposes).

Theres an example car up there built by lexus for a movie.. which im sure most of you have seen.

Anyways if enough people are interested cool.. at least it will get people making stuff, plus its probably going to be good for a laugh! Let me know your ideas.

I'm working on a concept car right now!

but it's more of a fictional sports car really...

I'll be up for making a concept car though, they're funky and I like 'em.



What're the rules? :smile:

Hmmmm.... A Un-Contest... Cool....

That is a Lexus concept made for the movie Minority Report. I never got any real good pics of it.

Either way, I am in, just tell me if the concept has to be pulled from a source or invented. The basics of the rules would be nice... :wink:

All made up of course, your imagination! I Don't really care if you use say, a wheel or whatever from an already invented car for texture purposes or anything minor like that, but thats about it.

I dont think any poly count restrictions should be neccesary either... I doubt anyone would go over the top for something like this anyways (heh, well Hopefully) Or maybe thats not a good idea.. you never know what might happen :wink:

Perhaps 5000 tops is a good number (Including a driver)?

If anyones interested in a deadline date.. a month or two? Say June 1st?

Cool... Now, where do we post our stuff? I would assume we need to post pics of the build in process. Do we do it here, or should we create a thread, say take something from anther forum....

Creative Contest: User Name: Car Name

Then post all your pics in that post. Keep working to keep your post near the top. They should all be created in a sinle forum listing though c1/c2 editing would be fine, it is the one most people look at anyways.

We will have to figure out some non participating people to judge it. Votes can be messed with, but a simple panel of like 3-5 people could simply rank each persons work from several different categories, like overall looks, carnage factor, belivability, poly usage and such, rank em 1-5, after the totals are added, if you have a tie, the judges pick the one they want to win. Pretty simple. But whatever you want to do with it.

Umm, I'm don't think he intended to make such a 'thing' of it...It's pretty much just making some kind of original vehicle to see what each person comes up with, isn't it? I don't think it's a competition per se...

Of course show what you're doing, but to bother making a seperrate forum for it..?

I say that simply cos this thread will get very, very big if you try to show everything you are doing in it. You can imagine 400 posts and never being able to really find anything.

I was aiming towards passenger car.. but if youre more interested in making a futuristic race car I guess you can do that if you want.

Ive also got mine started, Its about 80% done now model-wise, no skinning yet however.

Oh man I suck at this

I thought "Concept car - this should be easy"

but I can't even think of anything decent to draw, let alone model (I wanna draw atleast something first...)

Everything I draw looks like some stupid bubble, with a point at the back (Don't ask) :wink:

I might just start with the polies, and fuck the drawing... :/

[!prof. car ed render!]

Well.. this is what ive come up design wise so far. I was aiming for a pretty clean design. I dont really like the front much so I will probably rework it a bit, maybe the back also. Im only around 3500 polies, and a lot of time on my hand with that June 1st deadline hehe, so you never know what can happen.

Mustang: It is for carma of course!

Qwerty: I suppose its kinda new beetle-ish looking in a way, I thought that too actually when it was halfway done.

Here is a very minor update look however:

Am I seeing things, or do those tail-lights look like a late 90's Nissan Skylines? (just the lights not the whole rear-end obviously)

If I'm hallucinating again, just shoot me :tongue:

Good looking work, anyways. I want to smash it already :wink:
