    We are just under 50 weeks left for Roundup 200! To make this huge milestone Roundup more interesting, we have created a special contest with PRIZES for everyone who makes it into Roundup 200!

    We made a few rule changes for this contest. The goal of these rule changes is to ensure that your ride experience is shown for the first time as the 10 winning videos are revealed. That sense of surprise and wonder is lost if POVs, live streams, and teaser videos are posted ahead of time. Still screens are still allowed and encouraged to show off your progress. Otherwise, we want everyone to keep the full ride experience secret until the content reveal.

    Here are the rules:

    - All submissions for Roundup 200 must be set to Unlisted on YouTube and not be posted anywhere. Keep your video secret. If it's listed or shared anywhere, it'll be disqualified.
    - All coasters/parks featured must not be previously released or otherwise available for download.
    - Video/Live Streaming/Animated GIF previews/trailers/teasers that show your coaster are prohibited. Keep the ride experience a surprise to be first revealed when the winners are announced.
    - You may post as many still screenshots of your park/coaster as you like to show off your progress.
    - The coaster/park featured and the entire video must be your own work. You may not submit a video of someone else's coaster/park.
    - One video submission per person. If you send us more than one submission, we'll only take the last one sent.
    - We will send a custom made small prize out to the 10 people whose submitted videos are featured in Roundup 200. If you are under 18, you must have your parents contact us and give their permission.
    - Any video not featured in Roundup 200 will be eligible for our normal weekly roundups 201 and 202.
    - Videos must be submitted no later than December 3rd, 2017.
    - You may make your video public and post your park for download after the full list is revealed on December 6th, 2017.
    - Codemaster will procrastinate, spend 3 days on a project, and return to his rightful 11th place. He will win 11 post-it notes with 1 written on each.


    Prize: Wheelies!

    Questions? Feel free to ask away!

    Do you mean roundup 150 instead of 200?

    ^ Probably 201 and 202.

    Got some ideas.. think I might skip one or two projects in the pipeline to choose the coolest one I've got. A quad dueller seems unlikely at the moment, sorry :D not that I haven't got some ideas, but maybe its time for a break..

    ok.
    Lets see if im able to get this video done for 2017.
    Otherwise it will be roundup 300 (im skipping 250, 350, 450...)

    I wish, NL2 would export image sequences instead of video formats. That would make a lot of things much easier.

    The preparation is already running for a few month now.
    And again, it will be something "out of the box".
    Just one hint: E3 2013 Thats all you get.
    (... yeah i never take this contest serious) :D
    But the next update with the sun shafts will really come in handy with this project. Was planing on rendering them seperatly, but now i dont have to ;)

    Question:
    When i dont give you any information about the place, where i now live in, do i automaticly get place 11th to 20th? (even if i have to kick codemaster's project in the top 10 by force :P)
    I would be fine with it, because i dont really want something as a price. Im just joining for the fun.
    (Implying, that i actually get as far as this, of course)...

    For all you snoopers out there, here is a realistic list of possible themes for his project ;) ^

    ^
    Never said anything about "themes"
    I'll promise, you will be surprised.
    But you have one or two years to guess. Depending on how fast i get my hands on a blade-server/workstation setup.


    ... but the idea itself sounds interesting.
    Buy Nolimits 2 and get a fully working recreation of Assasins Creed...
    Does this count as "software-piracy"? -> Then every realistic rollercoaster recreation counts as patent piracy as well.

    ^^ YES!! Always wanted to see a Farming Simulator 2013 themed coaster!

    Seriously though, I wish everyone the best on their projects for next year. I want to try doing something that would get in but I highly doubt I'd actually manage it.

    Well it shouldn't be too hard to convert the video into a image sequence. ;-)

    Since the rule changes prevent me from finishing and enhancing Galaxy Adventure as a RU 200 project I've mainly two basic new ideas and we'll see how these develope until then.

    Damn, I can't use Tonatiuh either. Oh well, I have a year to figure something out....
  8.  
    Dying light themed launch coaster with run boy run as soundtrack
  9.  
    I have an idea which I tried late mid last year, before scrapping it as Blender was too hard. I might resurrect that for R200 :) But I'm trying to get 3 projects out this year, so I might be pushing it...

    Yes, but it would be one convertation off the list.
    At least its possible to tell NL2 the exact framerate you want. Hopefully its accurate enough (1 video frame = 1 DAE animation frame).

    Hi everyone! In case you haven't been following the count of Roundups, this week is Roundup 188. That means 12 weeks from today your Roundup 200 videos are due! How far along are you? Remember you can share screens of your work but no videos, animated GIFs, or other moving images.

    (Code, you have plenty of time)

    I'm feeling pretty organised for R200 - almost have the entirety of my ride entry done, just a few little things felt to do. Still got a fair bit of the video work to do, though...

    I'm still trying to decide to enter or not.

    just wondering (since tobi's taron recreation got in last year), if we choose to do a recreation for the roundup, do any of the judging categories change to accommodate that or would it be better to come up with something original? If they do change, how?
    •  
      CommentAuthorride_op
    • CommentTimeOct 14th 2017
     
    Good question. None of the categories include originality, so recreating a real life coaster does not affect our judging process. The quality of the coaster refers to how well you recreated the experience, scenery for the surrounding area and what is seen from the ride, and presentation focuses on how well you show it to us.
