Thanks for your patience thru the first 2 "set-up stages". Now things should get interesting as we're onto the grand finale, the complete ceramic chip set design phase. The top 3 finishers in this final phase all win prizes, with the winner getting a custom 1000-chip set of Sidepot's Epiphany ceramic chips. Second and third place get 500 and 300 chip sets, respectively.
Contestant submissions for the overall chip design phase are to be submitted to both Sidepot and Tenpercenter via PM. Design submissions may use the existing track and rolling edge designs (from Sidepot's chip design tool
), or their own new designs at the discretion of each Contestant. The tool should be helpful to many contestants, but there is no requirement to use it.
We'll have a brief discussion in this thread of likes and dislikes in current ceramic chip design, followed by submissions. I'd like to have all submission in by May 31st, and we'll simultaneously unveil the contestant designs on June 1st. All seconded Contestant submissions from this unveiling will go onto the voting rounds, where a winning design will be chosen by a series of face-offs.
As discussed above, a prize will be awarded to the top three Contestants, and, at Sidepotís sole discretion, a large sample of the top finisherís designs may be made available to the general public for their own custom chips via Sidepotís website. Additionally, any new track and rolling edge designs unveiled for the first time in this final stage may be added to the chip design tool and made available to the general public for their own custom chips via Sidepotís website.
Before we move onto submissions, let's have some discussion about likes and dislikes in ceramic chip line designs.
