Uplift from the site:

Yessssssss sir, it's that time of the year. If you were unlucky enough to miss this summer's birthday bash of a contest then have no fear because christmas is here to save you! Whilst the previous contest focused on being rather flagshipy (with the winner being the Romulan juggernaught that is the Ibis class) this christmas, I just have no idea what to test you guys on! Species 8472? Klingons? Stations?!

So, here's why Armada Files is at yellow alert. I'm giving you guys 7 wholesome days in which I want you to leave me a theme to use either on here or on our forum thread. General info. is neatly arranged below, so read-on:

  • The theme cannot be anything remotely to do with 'flagships'. Sorry, that ship has long gone to warp 8.
  • There is no official prize, however, being crowned the christmas modder for at least one year is probably all the prize you need!
  • Applicants can send in no more than 2 entries. This isn't to stop the amount of modding going on in terms of variety, but, you're more likely to produce 2 outstanding pieces of work that each have a chance of winning rather than 5 alrighty ones. Remember, competition is FUN!
  • The best theme will be picked by the staff in a tally vote.
  • Theme's can only be about models. Sorry to you mappers or weapon folk out there and to anyone else, but when it comes down to a contest, really, models are the only best way to judge, however, if there is enough push, we may open up more categories for the summer contest.
  • The contest is open to anyone and everyone.
  • The theme doesn't have to be about Star Trek.
  • The contest will run between:
8th November to 20th December The contest winner will be announced on Christmas day, so, you'll have to come onto the site to find out if your entry or favourite design wins!

And that's a rap. So, guys, give me your ideas!

Ahem, ideas, guys?

*Has Ideas* I think we should do a nontrek themed contest. I know that seems a little funny considering what the site is, but there are so many cool ships and stuff that have nothing to do with Star Trek. If not then I suggest a station contest. Very few come out and I think they're way cool. The things you can do with a station are amazing.

It would be good to have a station mod win and be released (as well as several runners up) :)

It would be nice to do something other than the Federation, I know the federation is popular but we are sadly lacking in models for other races.

I don't think we could get away with doing non trek, I suspect a certain element of the sites population would be quite rabidly displeased with the idea. It may be possible to do Trek races not seen or heard of in any series or book through. After all, its a large universe.

Well, I'd like to do any kind of competition, as long as I actually have knowledge of it. Non-Trek or Trek, I don't mind. I'm doing something personally for christmas for the site aswell, since its so great an all =p But if I have to cast a vote, mine goes on Non-Trek stuff :)

be nice if texture authors could win as well..or atleast be given a shot..cause i have a number of packages that i think would do well.and the best part is,they are ready to be submitted right now..a complete new stock borg set that is absolutely dead canon to the orginal game set,except that they look real and very nice.

a completely alpha textured weapons effects set.

and outside that i even have a new in game music score.

..yep..a number of things..

maybe if these type entries would be accepted..i'd send in one of them all,and then release the other stuff as stand alone.

I should re-iterate then. Models will be included, BUT, they won't necessarily have to be your home-bred ones? How does that sound?
