Background Contest #2 - For Real this Time!

hvNIDqz.png

 

Hello everyone. The staff has been a bit busy and unfortunately our new background contest fell to the limelight. We regret the mistakes that were made with this background contest, so we are now officially reviving it! Here are the details of this contest:

 

 

"After the recent success of the JKHub Holiday Competition, and much staff discussion, we have started a new competition. This time, it will be something a little bit different. Instead of focusing on something designed with the game in mind, we will be focusing on screenshots. Originally, JKHub used a picture of the level t1_fatal. We hosted a screenshot competition in 2014, two years after JKHub was opened to the public, and the current background is the winner of this competition.

 

Fast forward to today. JKHub is turning four years old this year, and we haven't had a background change in several years. We need something new to keep the site fresh. So, we are announcing our second official Background Contest. The winning entry of this contest will become the new background for JKHub. Here are the official rules of this competition:

  • The art must be submitted by May 25th, 2016. Winners will be determined over a week-long voting period.
  • Winners will be determined via a voting system similar to the Holiday Competition.
  • Artwork must be a minimum of 1900x1200 pixels in size. The larger, the better! Ideally, your work should look good on all resolutions.
  • Screenshots must depict content which is only available in the base game, or official Raven Map Packs. Hand-made artwork / concept art is also acceptable.
  • Screenshots may be of content in JK2 or JKA only. Submitted artwork must be related to JK in some way.
  • You may submit up to 3 pieces of content for this competition.

But you may be wondering, why would we hold a competition to change a part of the website, when the prospect of a JKHub 2.0 is looming? In truth, it will take a while to develop JKHub 2.0, even after the software we need becomes available. In the meantime, some small improvements to the website and minor changes, such as the background, will be enough to keep the site fresh while we all wait for JKHub 2.0. More details and information about JKHub 2.0 will be given as we learn more. We are constantly tweaking the website, and continue to evaluate new options to engage the community, in order to bring everyone together."

 

This time around, the submissions will be taken from replies to this topic. The other topics will be locked.

i made it! with one skybox pack from internet photoshopped..., remaking colors, levels and shadows to use in that alzoc map! It looks MUCH better than the original one ;)

This is really cool. Are you going to remake any other textures?

Do you only do skyboxes, or other textures as well? I may have a use for you in my JK:Enhanced project.

i touched the most textures of JK2 and some JKA assets!! So yess! im very interested :)

Maybe make a thread in the JK:Enhanced forums with what you've got, and we can include it in the project. :)

You should definitely look into becoming a skybox modder for the JK community. I did something similar to this for the "t2_wedge" level/map: 2ziq4om.jpg

 

In honesty, this community needs a NEW Skybox modder and you seem to have a good grasp (like myself) of authenticity with each map. So it's definitely something you should consider.

Hello,

 

I'm submitting 3 images for this contest.

I want to be clear, the maps seen in these screenshots are not custom maps. These are maps from the base game, but with textures changed and models added. I think in each of them you clearly recognize Jedi Academy, so I decided to submit them on the advice of a friend. The first image is siege_desert, the second image is hoth2 made into Dagobah, the third image is t1_surprise made into a Yavin forest.

 

First screenshot (siege_desert):

Second screenshot (hoth2):

http://dc589.2shared.com/download/t9S3zGDf/Screenshot__2_.jpg?tsid=20160515-180318-96e5ca01

 

Third screenshot (t1_surprise):

http://dc589.2shared.com/download/7GBXc8R_/Screenshot__3_.jpg?tsid=20160515-180324-743be3fb

 

If something is wrong with these screenshots or if I did not follow a rule correctly please let me know.

Although a lot of these are cool, subtlety is key for the JKHub background. Keep that in mind.

 

Some of those would be really cool desktop wallpapers though!

I know

 

but i created these pictures because okay i like the background about JKA maps, but cmon :)

the Website needs an epic background too :) :) :)

I think .... :)

I think that map would make a decent background. The colors might go well with the logo.

Does it have to be "Jk" related or Star Wars related....find the lack of responsible alternations or options, disturbing.  xD
