    Default Modders Challenge #4

    TBCS Modder’s Challenge #4

    As Master Chief you've crushed the Covenant Forces on Earth and in far away lands sending shudders down their squishy spines....the calluses on your thumbs reveal your valor. In online multiplayer combat, your mastery of the S2 AM Sniper Rifle and a few skillfully thrown plasma grenades have ended friendships with the footprint of scorched soil. You've pumped round after round with precision and unmistakable purpose into your enemies, as they fell one after the other. But as a seasoned warrior, you know all to well that there is always another battle over the horizon, and this horizon shall prove no more merciful. Unfortunately for you, the nemesis awaiting your battle-cry today is no mere grunt armed with a needle-gun, but a group of minds, the minds of some of the finest modders alive and they are armed with ideas. Your skill, your strategy, your goal, and your defiance to kneel before your rivals are what make you the Master Chief and the Master of your will. The question you are now facing Master Chief, is do you have what it takes to be THE Master......chief? And this is our question to you. Do you have what it takes to define your limits and reveal your competitive nature in an all out Halo-themed case mod design war? Time to stand your ground, confront your foes, leave them writhing in humiliation, trembling at the superiority of your Halo mod. The gloves are off, civility is but a distant memory, you stand wielding only your ingenuity with one clear goal, you must design (but not necessarily build) the greatest case mod these old forums have ever seen. So it is in this dawn of a new day for TBCS, that we challenge you to compete in the TBCS Modder's Challenge #4 Project: Halo3 PC. Aside from the beaming sense of satisfaction you'll feel while looking down from the hilltop at your decimated foes, there are also material rewards for your honour in service.

    Well, that's the beauty of the modders challenges. You don't actually have to do the build. Sketchup models, photoshop drawings, pencil and paper. That's all we ask. I will admit though, that I do hope we see at least one work log come out of this challenge. I have yet to see a Halo themed mod other than the airbrushed 360.

    Wow, this is great! This Modders Challenge Theme and the prizes are awesome! I instantly had some ideas pop into my head when I saw that it was going to be a Halo3 Theme, and I don't even like Halo all that much! Just goes to show you how well Halo is marketed I guess. lol

    But wow, talk about some very generous prizes! Are they all of the same prize or will they be handed out in a 1st, 2nd, 3rd place type deal?

    Damn thats a lot of prizes though, thats like winning the lotto, but for modders!

    I think I'm definitely going to have to at least try and draw something up. Maybe a few sketches or something, see if I have anything good rolling around up there in that dust attic of mine. Damn those prizes are great, I just can't get over it! lol
    People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.
