Throughout the last 12 months we have seen some amazing builds in Avatar Connection. We have always wanted a world that is creative and shares that creativity. With this in mind we thought we would do a themed contest with a bit of a difference. The difference is we don’t want you to create a PRIM!!!
OK this may sound a bit crazy, but let me explain…
For those that have done any shopping in Avatar Connection you will have seen that Freeland is a Linda Kellie OAR (with a few extra bits). Those who don’t know about Linda Kellie please check out her website. She is a lady (well avatar hehe) who has been kind enough to offer much of her creative content to the Opensim community with no rules... a very generous lady.
Linda Kellie’s content is great and we would like to see what you little creative bunnies can do with it. The idea of this theme is you can ONLY use Linda Kellies’ creations. This means all textures, sculpties, animations etc needs to be Linda Kellies. Saying that we want you to let your creative spirit free, so we encourage you to modify Linda’s content… that can mean unlinking builds and using parts in different builds or taking the textures and personalise in a graphics program like Paintshop or Gimp. You may add your own prims with Linda’s (modified and unmodified) textures on, but anything you add to your build has to be given in the same way as Linda gives her content…. Licence free, anyone can use with no rules. The reason for this is we will be asking you after the contest to give these builds to the Virtual world community by allow them to be place on the website’s download page for anyone to use with no rule… just like Linda J
We had thought about making this contest a quick one before starting a Halloween Contest, but then we thought… what the hell lets make this the Halloween Contest. We could of done something simple for Halloween, but where’s the fun in that. So to add a twist to this contest it will be our Halloween contest…. Create a haunted house with Linda Kellie content.
Your Haunted House and everything in it has to be built from Linda Kellie content modify or unmodified
1000 prims max
Has to be housed within your Plot on Contest Island (if you don’t have a plot pop along to Contest Island and grab yourself one)
Where to Pick up Linda Kellie’s content…
Inworld you can pick up Linda’s content on Freeland
On the web please visit Linda’s website
Additional notes about the Contest....
To help people get started, we have placed some bits in the center of Contest Island, just right click them and take copy. Talking of things on Contest Island, for anyone who has not played before there are boards to click that explains how to claim your own building plot free of charge for the contest. In short pick a plot and IM Kuu Cheng or Tweedle Dum with the number of the Plot ;-). Once you are the owner of the plot (Kuu or Dum will transfer it in to your name) you will be free to build and terraform the land as you want.
Good Luck to everyone :-)
