    Five Hours of Power III // Official NoLimits Contest


    Download the Template:

    Original:
    Original Mirror 1
    Original Mirror 2

    Lite (for lower power computers)
    Lite Mirror 1
    Lite Mirror 2

    Watch all Twitch livestreamers: Live Streaming Link

    Above is an image showing the working hours in BST, CET, EDT, and PDT. Note that this is 1 hour earlier than last year. Please convert to your timezone and be ready to participate at the start of the first hour. The template file will be uploaded prior and made ready to download at the precise moment. Good luck and have fun!



    The Five Hours of Power Contest has provided challenge to a degree the community had never seen before. While other contests had you work within decent time constraints, the limits are constricted further in this contest. You will only have 5 hours to compete for completion.

    How It Works
    • The template will be ready to download on August 27th, 2017 at 4:00 PM BST.
    • You must build in NoLimits 2 using an official provided template.
    • You will have until 9:00 PM BST (5 hours total) to build on this template from the moment it is posted.
    • Creations must be submitted by uploading to your preferred file sharing service, THEN using the official form before the 5 hour deadline. Allow yourself spare time for the uploading and submission process.
    • Please familiarize yourself with the rules prior to starting the contest.

    Rules
    • Rules are provided in the official template's park description, as well as the official form.

    And here's the prize you're playing for!



    This is the prize we ended up making for Code's win last year. We'll make a similar one for you if you win this year, customized with your name!

    The date is now set for August 27th! As we did last year, we will hold a live reveal of the contest park and rules on Twitch.tv/nolimitscoaster starting half an hour before the contest.

    Please share your Twitch handles so we can watch and share the live streams!

    Hi there! You all may have forgotten about this since ride_op posted a month ago, but more importantly because it was posted in the wrong forum that only a few members see! Surprise!! In the meantime, I'm going to edit some of Tom's original post to reflect the formatting of last year, so you can refamiliarize yourselves with the torture you will endure. >:)

    The judges for this year are Kevin (Phyter), Tom (ride_op), and myself.

    Hone in your speed-building skills - it's going to be a pressure cooker this year. Or so we think... we always underestimate you guys' abilities lol.

    Our judges this year are Tom Zeliff, Kevin Stone, and Justin Clarke. Along with meeting the required criteria, we will be looking at four main aspects of your creation: Creativity, Originality, Realism, and Fun.

    Creativity: This looks at how clever and creatively met the design requirements and adapted your design to the build area.

    Originality: This looks at how unique your designed elements are. Essentially how well you can surprise the judges with something unexpected.

    Realism: This looks at how realistic everything you built is. We are not looking to see if you built along a particular manufacturer's style. We will look at the quality of your track shaping, smoothness, and that the supports look realistic to hold up your design.

    Fun: This looks at how enjoyable a ride is. We will factor in pacing, flow, visuals, and look at the overall riding experience.

    Questions? Ask away!

    Are wooden coasters allowed this year? Also, in the case that one was to build a wooden coaster, can you still get decent Originality points?

    I might have missed it but will FVD++ be allowed?

    • CommentTimeAug 25th 2017
     
    You can use the built-in FVD editor. The idea is to use all of NL2's native abilities to create the best design possible in the allotted time. Perfection is impossible given the time crunch. While we would not be able to tell which FVD system you used, are you certain you have enough time? (odds are, you don't)

    No steaming handle for me. I have crappy internet at the moment.
