THIS FORTNIGHT'S THEME This week, the frenchies are on the spotlights. Last winner @Cytoria set this theme, here are the details : «I thought it was time to honor my country. Despite having a decent amount of cars on GT Sport, french cars are not very popular on the LEC and even in the races. So now you’ll be forced to use one of our jewels. Creativity will be encouraged so replicas are not allowed, but everything else is free, from a futuristic Alpine VGT spaceship to a fun track day wrap for the 208, or a very serious Veyron Gr.4. Bonne chance! » CARS : - French cars only. LIVERIES : - Original creations only, no replicas allowed. UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS : - Other than the country of the car, you can do anything you want. - Sport Mode compatibility is not mandatory. BONUS PICTURE SETTINGS : - Up to Two Bonus Pictures allowed. - One picture must be taken at a french location (race photo or scapes). USER MADE DECALS : - No restrictions. GENERAL COMPETITION RULES ENTRY SUBMISSION - The only way you can take part is to be a member of the GTPlanet forums. If you haven't created your account yet, click here - Mark your FINAL ENTRY clearly, with red text. - Unsure how to? Copy and paste the following: Code: [COLOR=red][B]FINAL ENTRY[/B][/COLOR] - One entry per user. It must be your own work, and never previously used in a competition. - You may change your entry once. Do it clearly; edit out your previous entry, and either post the new one in a new reply, or in place of the original. - Do not post "Honourable Mentions" or outtakes - just your Final Entry, that's all. - Absolutely no entries which utilize edited/hacked file saves. - Winner gets to choose the following Fortnight's theme. - Winners cannot enter in their own theme! - The Host may ask for the original image/livery and it must be submitted if so. - It's recommended to share the original livery online (in-game) to prove it’s your work. - Winner, second and third places will have to share the links of the liveries for the Hall of Fame thread ENTRY PRESENTATION - All images shall have preview images which may not exceed 640 pixels in either direction (main and bonus pictures) - You have to post two main pictures of your entry using the mandatory locations and settings as shown below - You are allowed to post two bonus pictures in a spoiler with free location and settings (unless the unique restrictions of the week’s theme specify something else) - You have to make one post with ONLY the 4 pictures and the FINAL ENTRY mark. If you want to add precisions/background story/links, you are allowed to double-post under your entry. The best way to do it will be to "reply" to your own post. - It is recommended you host your image either here on GTPlanet (via the Media section), or on Flickr - Not sure how to submit your image? Here's a guide for both methods mentioned above. - A preview image must be representative of the full-size image. Do not add effects to it. - Please use a clickable-preview to full-size, not a separate text link for it; it makes poll creation much easier! - No heavy post-game editing, slight enhancing is allowed. MANDATORY PICTURES - You have to post a front quarter view and a rear quarter view of your car. - You can choose between the Shiretoko 03 location or the White Sands 01/09 locations.
