    Welcome all to the first annual Season’s Greeting Photo Competition. With the addition of Free Camera, the realm of possibilities for screenshots has skyrocketed. Whether or not you are an owner of MAV, you are welcome to compete. If you do not have your own copy yet, see the instructions below how to set up the demo.

    Submission Categories, Deadlines, and Rules

    There will be three categories available for submission. Most Awesome, Most Creative, and Most Festive. Two submissions max per person will be accepted. Each screenshot needs to be marked to belonging to a certain category (i.e. The first picture is for Most Awesome, the second for Most Creative). Two pictures submitted to the same category is allowed. If you would like to change the images you submitted, please edit your post updating the pictures before the end of the submission period.

    Only submissions posted to this thread and labeled properly will be eligible for voting. Photos must either be uploaded to the forums or linked from an image hosting site like Imgur. Please keep all submissions to one post.

    Submissions will be accepted until midnight, January 20th, PST. Voting will then commence for one week until midnight of January 27th PST.

    Photo editing programs are allowed for use if you so desire to.

    Photo Methods

    Free camera can be activated by hitting F7 to lock the camera in place. Hitting Left Alt will allow for movement of the camera. The camera can be controlled by WASD and mouse with elevation controls being Q and E. The camera will lock to the ground when touching to help with tracking. The camera can be unlocked from the ground by double tapping and holding E while moving downhill looking upwards.

    Default screenshot button is F9. To take 4K Resolution screenshots, hold down left shift followed by holding down F9. At this point, MAV should appear to “freeze” as the picture is rendered. This process will usually take longer than one minute.

    Upping quality settings in anti-aliasing, mash quality, and texture quality to max settings is recommended for the best pictures. When changing the settings in the Options tab in the Main Menu, make sure to close the Options tab using the < arrow before moving into Singleplayer, Multiplayer, or the Garage to ensure the settings you choose are saved. A client restart will be needed so all changes are applied.

    Prizes

    First place for each category will be awarded their very own MAV T-Shirt. Runner up for each category will be awarded either two firework codes for MAV for their own personal use or a gift to a friend. The runner up can also select a key from a list of games (List of options coming Soonโ„ข) to be redeemed on CD Keys as an alternative to firework codes. In the event of one person placing twice for first place, the person will receive both a first and second place prize, unless the winner would like an additional MAV shirt.

    Winners will be contacted shortly after the conclusion of voting through the forum messaging system to discuss shipping details or prize options.

    Voting

    Opens sometime December 21st.

    For Demo/Non MAV Owners

    I thought I’d put some actual effort into this one. My contribution to the Most Festive MAV category. Merry Mavmas everyone.

    Edit: Do I get extra bonus points for rendering it in 4k? Open the picture in a new tab and zoom in to see such glorious resolution detail.

    Merry Mavmas from DingdongJR

    Bumping the end submission date up a few weeks, as this was buried behind the IndieDB vote, and will hopefully allow some pictures to occur in 0.7.0.

    Not many entries so far. Seems like it’s prime for people to come in and still win it!
