Secret Santa 2016

pCzh3md.png

It's that time of year again! The holidays! Every year we try to put on some kind of event related to Christmas, since that's the majority of what people celebrate around here. If you celebrate something else, you can still get into the spirit of giving by participating in this year's holiday event!


Secret Santa is back!
We've done a Secret Santa event in the past (maybe a couple times?) and it went well, so we're trying it again this year! If you're unfamiliar with how Secret Santa works, basically you get the name of a person participating and you must create a mod or graphic of some kind for that person. They can choose to provide a list of items they want, and you can choose to make something from that list or not. Some more details below.

The rules

  • You must be a registered member.
  • You must be able to create a mod in JKA or JK2 of some kind or a graphic (signature, wallpaper, etc), even if it's something really simple.
  • You must sign up, by sending a PM to the Secret Santa account, saying you're participating and/or a list of what you want.
  • You must have the time and motivation to complete your gift on time.
  • You must sign up by December 1st.
  • You will receive a PM from that same account containing the person and their list, on December 2nd.
  • You will have until December 23rd to submit your gifts to the Secret Santa account via PM, once again.
  • You will receive your gift on Christmas Day, December 25th.

What should you ask for?
It's better to make a list of simple things that people can make, not things that you've been spamming the requests forum with. If you put "make me JK4" or "i just want rend2" obviously that won't happen. Here are some examples:

  • a forum avatar or signature
  • a mod of Rosh saying everything backwards
  • a JKA-related wallpaper
  • a giant toothbrush saber model
  • a mod that replaces the chat icon with a Christmas wreath
  • a simple code mod

What should you NOT ask for?

  • JK4 (seriously people...)
  • rend2
  • a new playermodel of some character
  • a huge map (small maps might be okay, depends)
  • some kind of mod that involves heavy coding
  • a mod that makes "Circa" replace every mention of "Rosh"

Bottom line: don't ask for something that would take months or years to make. If you don't have time to make something elaborate, your secret santa won't either.


If you fail to make your gift, you force the staff to scrounge up something last-minute, which isn't cool, so please make sure to make something. Also, no physical or monetary gifts or address exchanging for this. Mods and graphics only.

And again: you can only participate if you can create a gift too. If you can't you will be denied entry into the Santa zone. :P

That should cover it, so if you're up for it, sign up and get your list in! :santa:

Hello and Merry Christmas and happy holidays! Everyone got their gifts in, and they have been distributed! Good job all, there was some really cool stuff made. I also apologize to those that asked for more info regarding their person. I completely forgot to check the account periodically.

 

Remember, if you want to release your gift publicly, make sure you ask the person you made it for first. At the very least, perhaps some pictures could suffice too. We'd love to see some of those creations!

 

Hope ya'll had a great weekend.

I've counted 6 gifts. Loved the one for Redsaurus! :D

Merry Christmas thanks for the gift!  (BTW if the person who got my gift has problems with it working, send me a PM and I can troubleshoot/release a patch.  I probably should have tested it on basejka instead of just openjk).

Now that I'm home and I've been able to download my gift, I can say thank you very, very much, Secret Santa! Seriously. All of those will find their way to some good use. :D

I've only been able to peak inside the pk3 of mine but thank you so much whoever you are!

 

Looking forward to getting back and testing it!

I was a very lucky Iffo and got a hilt of Gungi's Lightsaber. Although just arrived back and seem to have a bug with it in-game?

Happy for it to be released publically too if the author wishes it!

 

As for the person I had, I assume the message was passed on, so feel free to contact me if you require anything!

The levelshot, I got in wallpaper size too! ^.^

 

The first is a prefab to be inserted into maps.

This one contained a handful of similar rooms in alternating colours, which looks awesome!

Apparently that's from the 1997 Canadian movie Cube!

 

 

 

Zing!

so um...has anyone actually made any mods for this? :huh:

 

We had 10 participants. I think about 8 of them were mods. Why?

it's just that it felt like the whole thing passed by uneventfully - no updates, very little comments, stuff like that...

though I suppose since it's secret santa, there shouldn't have been any...

Exactly. :P I told people to share their gifts if they wanted to. I suppose I could have posted screenshots myself of them all.
