Quick Winter Contest Update


For the Winter Contest this year, there are two possible categories to enter. Timing and other details will be released later.

 

Frozen
The predecessor to roller coasters were ice slides. In this category, you can only build incomplete circuit roller coasters with no inversions, but that still deliver a fun and exciting ride. Rides should have a icy theme of some sort.

 

Frosty the Snowman
In this category, you can build any type of roller coaster you want, but it must only contain loops for inversions (1 minimum) to be round like Frosty! It must also be themed with glorious amounts of snow (real or fake).

 

A big focus for this contest is creativity!

 

Please comment to ask questions!

And the winner is...


For the first time, the Expert Panel has been used to determine the winner of the 2016 Summer Heat contest.

 

The score uses the weighted average of the Expert Panel's design, smoothness, creativity, and overall ratings for each model plus the weighted average of the community rating to give an Expert Panel score from 0 to 10.

 

Expert Panel Score
Design 20%
Smoothness 20%
Creativity 20%
Overall Score 30%
Community Rating 10%

 

Using this formula, the results broke down like this for the 2016 Summer Heat contest. Read more to see the winner...

Summer Heat Logo & MotM


We are proud to showcase the official logo for Summer Heat 2016, made by member/administrator ~stεεlspectrum~. For this, he will receive an elusive Logo tag. He did a really great job on the logo, so everyone be sure to tell him that!

 

Also, there was no Model of the Month winner for July. No model reached the voting and rating threshold. There will not be a Model of the Month contest for August as the Summer Heat contest wraps up. Thanks to those that did participate in the July contest!
