Background Blitz 20th May - 3rd June
« on: 20 May 2003, 18:32 »
Hehe sorry it took so long, what with me completely forgetting I was supposed to do this and all, but here goes.

Let's go with the college campus thing, since that seems fairly popular. 640x400x16 resolution, so let your artistic flair shine! Or... something. Anyway, in keeping with tradition: ._. k

Edit: to those who may be confused, a college is a place of schooling, somewhere between secondary (high) school and university, and a campus is the entire area taken up by a school, college or university, including playing fields, buildings, paths and roads, whatever.

Ok, here's my entry... a classroom I made some time ago. Note that I resized it(it was 1024*768) and it may have lost some if its quality.

I would assume 16-bit, since he said "let your artistic flair shine"

the message actually orginally said "640x480x24 resolution" but assumed that was 24bit colour and not 24 colours, although i do kind of like being limited to a certain ammount of colours... i think i'll try enter...

Yeah I originally said 24 bit, then I realised AGS uses 16 bit, so I edited it. So yeah, 16 bit not 16 colours.

yeah i know :-[ i moved the forground foward to hide the blank bits at the sides, which made the rail distorted, it was to fat before but it got worse, ive got a lot to learn about camera angles, i should of gone higher and looking down i guess :-\ i'm a lot better at cars/bikes! building are new to me!

thx for the coments tho SLaMgRInDeR, your piccie looks great, i'm useless at drawing piccies on the pc, hence why i use 3d ;)

woodz

I gotta go for woodz's.  The topic was college-campus and his was well-implemented.  I'm often biased against 3d stuff, but I think this would work nicely as a background with a touch of work and his also makes me envision a college campus more than the others.  

Apparently there just wasn't a lot of interest in this topic.  Or, people just didn't have time to kill this time.

I'll have to go for woodz's as well, since it's got correct perspective (albeit as a result of the computer!) and I'm a stickler for perspective.
