Exclamation The Truckingsim Design-a-game contest is here!
The Truckingsim 2.0 Design-a-game contest

Hey folks, it's been a bit quiet these past few weeks, mostly due to being too busy on my part.
Today that's going to change, because this is the start of the Truckingsim Design-a-game contest (the first of two design contests for the new game).
This is your chance to design the new look and feel for Truckingsim.

Objectives
The objective is to allow you guys to design the new look and feel for the game. After this contest we hope to have a design for the game website (everything you see, after you've logged in). Your design will also be a guideline for a second contest; the Truckingsim Design-a-site contest, in which we will design and layout the new public website.
We believe anyone with basic photoshop skills should be capable of making a design that is elligible.

For a design to be elligible:
  • It needs to be built as a layered file in Photoshop
    Using The Gimp or a vector format that is compatible with InkScape is also acceptable. You should also include an exported version of each file in PNG format.
  • It must be in RGB format (not CMYK or Grayscale)
  • You may only use imagery that is public domain or at least free to use in an open source website.
  • For each page, you must include a version for three different screen-widths:
    480px - with a height of either 800 or 854px, being a low-end smartphone or tablet
    960px - height to your own discretion, being a low-end desktop, high-end tablet or mobile device in landscape
    1280px - high-end device in landscape
  • Used imagery must be included in resolutions that are as high as possible, so we can accommodate for
    hiDPI / Retina type displays.
  • The following pages need to be included in your designs:
    - My driver -> Driver info
    - My company
    - Select destination
    - Route display (current route)


A few tips and resources:
When you finish your design, make a seperate topic here: http://forum.truckingsim.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=39
If you need some space to upload your images to, let me know via DM, we'll arrange for that.
Others will be allowed to comment on your designs.
Jefffan24 and I will have a look and assess if it is feasible. If your design cannot be transformed into a working
website / game, we'll let you know as soon as possible.

All submissions must be in before April 18th, noon CET.
Any registered forum member will be allowed to vote for the winning design in the following week.

The winning design will be used for the new game.
The winning designer will:
  • Get his real name or nickname proudly mentioned on the new website and in-game
  • Will get a custom badge, displayed with hes/her nickname in the new game
  • Will get all benefits a sponsor / paying player gets

Let us know!
If you're working on a design, please drop us a note in this thread.

RE: The Truckingsim Design-a-game contest is here!
I am giving it a try...

My skills are from somewhere around PSP 4, some GIMP after that.
But trying to visualize should be doable in a month or so.
(health and work come first, and both need attention.)

Is there still gonna be a new game even if no one comes up with designs for it. I am spreading the news around, but that's about all I can do. I have no design skills or anything like that....

You would rather hope so. They might just continue the old theme..?

I think we really need a new one so the game scales better for mobile devices. I've got an idea but it's not ready yet. Mostly because drawing tables in an image editor is a pain.

I think so to, with all the bugs in the one were playing we do need a new game.

Well, to tell you the truth, I was a bit dissappointed by the lack of response to this. I am very anxious to see what Karloe comes up with.

I am still working on setting up development for a new game.

RE: The Truckingsim Design-a-game contest is here!
I am getting back on working on my "view".

Still on my sketch board, 3 views without that *** (not saying that now.)
I have had some issues, as I said in my post up above, RW and H come first, and Health
intervened. <snip some personal stuf>

And designing for 480 is a pain, unless I swipe, 720 * 480 (Landscape) could be full width.
(screen readers shouldn't be a problem, that's just clear links and clear text.)

Back to painting, something with house redecorating...
