BrikSpace Contest

Postby Olothontor » Wed Jul 15, 2009 3:27 pm

Inspired by dilanski's "LDD Space Fleet Contest", I'm now running a similar contest. There will be three competitions, all judged by a panel of four, including myself.

The Fleet Contest:

Using my BrikSpace rules, contestants must:
    * Create a fleet consisting of:
      - 1 Frigate
      - 2 Cruisers
      - 1 Destroyer
      - Any combination of Fighters, Bombers, and Interceptors (rules permitting)
    * Create valid rules for each ship and provide them.
    * Provide clear, concise pictures (or as close as your camera can get to clear and concise).

The Individual Ship Contest:

Using my BrikSpace rules, contestants must:
    * Create one ship of Cruiser class or above (Frigates, Fighters, Bombers, and Interceptors will be disqualified).
    * Provide valid rules for the ship.
    * Take and post clear and concise pictures.

The Fighter Contest:

Using my BrikSpace rules, contestants must:

    * Create a Fighter, Bomber, or Interceptor.
    * Create and post valid rules for the ship.
    * Take clear and concise pictures.


The judges so far:

- Olothontor
- Halo 3000
- kidko
-

ANY building style you feel appropriate to use, use it! Decals, stickers, and custom paint jobs are all welcome as well. Keep it creative, and I look forward to seeing some awesome stuff!

You are not required to participate in all three. In fact, you may choose which of the ones you want to. If you're feeling particularly ambitious, you may participate in all three, or two. It is all up to you. Follow the rules, and play safe.

Submissions are due in exactly three weeks.

EDIT: I'm a dip, aren't I? The rules are in a spiffy PDF format here or in a slightly less appealing Google Notebook format here.

I'm getting client errors from those links. Sorry. And half of them are smushed together.

But I appreciate the entries, thanks. As soon as we can see them, we'll take them into account.

Well, unfortunately, I've PMed all of the judges. Two have responded, and one will be able to respond this upcoming weekend.

As for your other comment... what do you mean "ship standards"? You've got a ton of ship options, which are all variable.

Also, Dragonfire: I need stats for those ships, too.

Alright. Well, post stats and pictures whenever you're ready (if you decide to do this at all, of course).

You're Frigate only has 9 Cp worth of stuff on it. You've got 3 more Cp to spend on it.

Everything else looks good to me. Great job!

Arrowhead class bomber
Move 4"
Armor 1D6+1
Agility: 10
Light Missile X1
Speed 8", damage 4D6, blast radius 2"
Shrapnel missile X1
Speed 8", damage 2D6, burst radius 3"
Light Armor

I think these stats are right, but I'm not sure. Feel free to correct me.

And here are the rules in my version of Brikspace:
Arrowhead bomber
Class .5 (Corvette)
Acceleration 10"
Armor 1D10
Hit points 1
Silhouette 8
Weapon: Plasma bomb launcher
Range 6", damage 6D6, Accuracy 1D6+3
Ability: Boarding Party
Once per game, this ship may deploy a boarding party against an enemy vessel within 3". Boarding combat is resolved using the boarding party rules (found on Pesgores' thread about ship boardings in the BM forum).

You get one entry per person, per contest. So you can enter one fleet for the Fleet Contest, and then a completely different ship for the Individual Ship Contest, but you can't post two fleets for a single contest.

And also, TheBlackDog, your Bomber is mostly okay. Your problem is that you gave it a Small Missile Package, which is not what it gets. It simply receives two Missiles of your choice. Other than that fiddly detail, it's a great entry!

Two missiles total, or two missile types and a certain amount of ammo?

Also, I have a fleet, but I built it before this contest was announced. Can I still enter it?

Olothontor I built a ship for the individual ship contest. The ship is between 4" and 5". Does it count as a cruiser or a frigate? :?
