Sign ups begin today, 6/12/11 and will continue until Tuesday, 6/21/11. You must be signed up by 11:59 PM EST on the 21st to participate. The contest will be simple, design a coaster and submit it into the Downloads section. There will be a special category for the contest that you will upload to. The rating system will serve as our judge, so everyone will have a say in the winner.
There will be a theme and you must design accordingly. The theme will be announced on Wednesday the 22nd, you will have two weeks to work on your coaster. Your submission must be in by 11:59 PM EST on July the 6th.
Here are the rules. Only scenery objects downloaded from the COASTER-net Downloads or the packages provided for you by the judges are allowed (trust me, this isn't as bad as it sounds). Anything else is not allowed. You may upload YOUR OWN custom scenery packages to our Downloads area, but you cannot upload someone else's without WRITTEN authorization being sent by US Mail, fax or scanned and sent as an e-mail attachment (preferably a PDF). In game cheats and hacks are allowed.
The captions the coasters will be judged on are:
- Forces (while we're not going for a "recreation," we want something "realistic." Sustained periods of high g's will hurt your score, as will having NO g's.
- Layout/Trackwork/Elements (Remember to go with something that fits with the theme)
- Structure and Supports
