SGW Halloween Competition 2018 (Results Posted)
« on: September 22, 2018, 12:55 PM »


To celebrate this spooky time of the year, create a Halloween scene in Planet Coaster in the form of a postcard. It can be theme park related, or simply a landscape or scene that best captures the Halloween spirit. You may use Photoshop or any image editing software to add a title or border, add spooky effects, or anything else. Submit your entries in this thread beginning October 1st through October 15th. Winners will be chosen by community vote via a poll that will be up from Oct. 16th - Oct. 21st. Winners will be announced on the 22nd, and displayed on the SGW front page as well as SGW social media pages.

Members aren't limited to only one entry. A maximum of two entries per member will be accepted in the Planet Coaster competition. You may also enter the RCT3 version of the competition, which is posted on the RCT Community Board. There will be a separate vote to choose the RCT3 winner. You may also enter up to 2 entries in that competition in addition to the Planet Coaster competition.
Good luck and have fun.  :smiley_Halloween:


Feel free to post any questions you may have here.

Rules Clarification
The entry cannot be a screenshot from an existing theme park you've made in the past. It must be an original creation. The deadline is Oct 15th. Anyone who has submitted an entry that does not meet these specifications is welcome to re-submit an entry. All entries that do not meet these specifications will be disqualified.

Im not sure ill join in. Halloween is an event i dont celebrate so i have no feeling with it.  In my humble opinion the love and energy you put in creating a theme park shows how much you enjoy it in real life. :)

How do you take a picture in the form of a postcard?
You don't have to do anything special. Your entry should look like a scene that you might see on a postcard. Or an image that might be suitable for framing like a spooky landscape. You can use the filters in PC to create a more atmospheric look. Or you could add a decorative border using Photoshop or any image editing software. You can add a caption like "Happy Halloween" to the image. But photo editing is not required at all. It's totally up to you.

Entries will be judged mostly on subject matter and creativity, and less so on your Photoshopping skills.

On the last payday this month, all BSI serfs employees will find this cheery little card instead of included with their paychecks.

It's really just a formal portrait of our HR Director, Cagnazzo the Malebranche, at his desk but, in deference to the season, he's put up some jack-o-lanterns to show he's not all business.  The back of the card explains recent changes in the retirement plan and new rules for collateral on loans from the company store.  Here at BSI, we take pride in making sure our serfs employees know we're always thinking of them and keeping them in the loop.

Tastefully done, Skyvador.  A cheerfui harvest festival instead of a spookfest.  I like it. 

But wow, I'll have to hire more groundskeepers.  I had no idea huge weeds like that would come if if you din't weed the planters often enough  :laughing_skull:

I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed in the entries. Most of you have just added a caption to a screenshot of a park you made previously, maybe even a year or more ago. The rules said "create a Halloween scene" not slap a caption on an old screenshot from an old park. So I'm making the rules a little more specific.

The entry cannot be a screenshot from an existing theme park you've made in the past. It must be an original creation. The deadline is Oct 15th. Anyone who has submitted an entry that does not meet these specifications is welcome to re-submit an entry. All entries that do not meet these specifications will be disqualified.

OK......  So my devil in the flaming pentagram, which I made from scratch, is OK.

But adding zombies and pumpkins to the voodoo idols in Quarantine Island is not?

I'm going to have to say no, it's not. It's still posting a screenshot from an old park, even though you added some extra elements. If we do this for Xmas, I might allow decorating an old park, but since I already stated that screenshots from old parks can't be entered, I'm going to have to stick with that.

Actually, Pietrix008, I had no idea that your first entry was from an existing park. You may have used some images from your park, but the way you made a silhouette collage of several elements hardly qualifies as "simply taking a screenshot and adding a caption." I, personally, would say that your first entry DOES qualify as an entry because of the enormous amount of creativity you put into it.

Unless the other entrants object, I am allowing your first entry for submission.

OK, I made another scene from scratch (as I suck at Photoshopping)....  So, entry v2.5.  I'm sticking with the devil I know for entry #1

---------------------------

Not to be outdone by the BSI HR Department's Director, his subordinates in the Employee Benefits Office also did their part of boost employee morale for Halloween.  Serfs Employees will find this instead of in with their paychecks at the end of the month.

This is just another night at the office for our staff voodoo queen physician, Marie Laveau who, as you can see, is always hard at work attending to the healthcare needs of our serfs employees.  But she has taken time out of her busy schedule to put up a couple of pumpkins for the season.  Note that she has a WORKING caduceus, 2 of them even, unlike most quacks who just have a picture of one.  Here at BSI, we get only the best docs for our employees.  Note how the caduceus on the right is tickling the patient closest to the doctor, throwing in that extra touch of mojo healing power  :witch-smiley:

NOW GET BACK TO WORK, YOU LOT!
