Hi everyone, welcome to the Create-A-Unit competition.

As you can guess from the name, this is a competition to see who can create the best unit within a given theme. So get your thinking hats out, start up your text editor's and get creating!

How it works
On Sunday we will announce the first theme. You then have exactly two weeks to create your unit and submit it to the downloads section.

In the week that follows the closing of the competition the judges will judge all the entries and pick a winner. The results will be announced on Friday. The winner gets bragging rights and he may pick the next theme.

This will then be announced again on Sunday, and the second Create-A-Unit competition will start. It will again last for two weeks followed by one week for judging, and so on, and so on.

The jury
For each round, the jury consists of 4 judges. Two of these will be TWH staff, the other two will be 'normal' forumers. We're looking for four forumers who want to take turns judging the units created. So they judge a round, then they can participate in a round, etc.

If you'd like to be a judge please post in this thread. The first four will be added to the 'jury pool' and will take turns being part of the jury. That way they can also participate in the competition.

If one of the judges can't judge a round one of the other judges from the pool will take his place for that round. In case of a staff judge not being able to judge a round another member of staff will take his place for that round.

Staff judges:
Andalus
Hussarknight
Mythic_Commodore

Non-staff judges:
Edorix
awesomated88
Caesar_Hadrianus

Rules
  1. In cases not covered by the rules the jury decides what to do.
  2. Entries must be uploaded to the downloads section by Sunday (Forum time, aka EDT), two weeks after the theme has been announced. Entries received after midnight will not be eligible. The added on date shown for all downloads will count as the date the entry is received, even it it is not yet approved.
  3. After submitting your unit to the downloads section you must leave a reply in this thread stating you've entered the competition.
  4. You don't have to sign up in advance, submitting your unit to the downloads section and announcing it here afterwards is enough.
  5. All units must be your own work. You may not use work created by others. You may however use parts of Vanilla units.
  6. One entry per round per person.
  7. Entries must not violate the Code of Conduct
  8. No crying if you don't win, better luck next time!
  9. Have fun!

Hussarknight, I believe I emailed you alreeady to say that I'm not available to judge this round. Modding takes time, which I don't really have, and my girlfriend would rather I spent what i do have with her.

Doh! My fault. I've taken you off for this round.

Btw, we're also looking for a replacement to Inekadam since he didn't reply to any e-mails sent. If someone's interested leave a reply.

We haven't heard back from Sara Gonn yet so we'll be picking our new theme ourselves which will be announced shortly.

Hello

If nobody comes forward I will fill in as a judge...

I will make an advertisment to any body who wants to be a judge... It is Great fun and easy to do... The files are put into a mod switch folder so it doesn't modify your files..

Thanks

PS. It is great to have power over who wins..

PPS I am sorry people who didn't win. Not every one can..

I know I'm making quite a big thing of this, but I feel kinda guilty.

Since I'm not a judge this round, I'll probably be entering for this one.

I'm having a bit of trouble with unpacking- I'll wrestle with it a bit more, but I can't seem to get the files to appear with the extractor. Hm...
