Featured liveries courtesy of @MMX ; @Azabear6 ; @Cytoria and @ghostrider135 THE THEME For the second time, we are celebrating our competition anniversary! Two years ago, @syntex123 launched the GT Planet Livery Editor Competition. We are now in the 51th round and we have seee more than a thousand entries through this journey. It's now time to celebrate our beloved website again, this special place which allows us to gather and have fun together. When we were preparing this theme, however, one change appeared : we wanted @Jordan to be involved in the process and to design a theme for him! So here is what he said : "I would prefer to see liveries for a class of cars. Gr.3 has always felt like the "core" class in GT Sport, so that would be my choice. I think it would be great for the community to have a wide range of high-quality Gr.3 GTPlanet liveries to choose from, so if the liveries were "Sport Mode friendly", I think that would be a plus. In the previous competitions I have always been torn between the most "creative" liveries and the most "realistic". I think (hope!) that adding some constraints like this will make it easier to be just a bit more objective about judging the whole thing." You can check the previous threads to remember or discover what we did in the previous events (sorry from some broken images or links). First competition thread / First competition poll Second competition thread / Second competition poll So have fun and be creative with these racing beasts! CARS : - Gr.3 cars only. LIVERIES : - No Restrictions UNIQUE RESTRICTIONS : - The main sponsor of the livery must be GTPlanet. - You can use these existing GTPlanet decals Spoiler: Various GTPlanet decals Logo mask Text mask Logo Text Logo + Text Number board - The livery must be "Sport Mode Compatible", but you can use any numberplate you want. Spoiler: What is Sport Mode Compatible? Sport Mode and GT League events use the Number Plate type 01 with mandatory placement. If you draw a custom number plate on your livery or place sponsors randomly, they may end up half-covered or not covered at all which will make it looks weird. We usually say « Sport mode compatible » or « Sport mode friendly » when the custom number plate and sponsors are placed where the GT plate type 01 will fit without denaturing the overall design. It’s easy on some cars but very hard on others (the 911 RSR for example has a very small type 01, or the Corvette has it in the middle of the door). BONUS PICTURES SETTINGS : - No Restrictions. - You can have up to 3 bonus pictures USER MADE DECALS : - Allowed. 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. - 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. No other location will be allowed for the main pics.
