Nulled vote.

Anton- Shot lacks detail, design, and really any sense of anything going on. Try not to use the same tile so repetitively, and add elevation to spice things up.

Me- Shot sorta sucks, I entered because I was bored and there weren't enough shots.

ZebraStallion- The background is great, and the palette is decent as well. But what's on the ground(the tree clumps) are kind of lazily put together, and it looks way too much like all those shots Tri keeps showing us. Not a bad shot at all, but ground design could be better.

EDIT: Yippie, I have 1 vote. icon_smile.gif

EDIT AGAIN: By the way, thanks for editing in my caption, /M/. icon_smile.gif

You didn't know?

ZC plagiarism is the new thing now days.

I was going to vote for ZebraStallion but it seems a bit .. plagiarized?

AntonJ3000- 5/10
It's square and thoroughly uninteresting. For starters, I'd say use something other than the default grass tile, don't be so heavy on the tall grass, and try not to make everything so square. Other than that, use the Official Screenshot Thread liberally.
LostinHyrule- 7/10
Not bad, but the palette, like most winter palettes, is too monochromatic.
ZebraStallion- 7/10
Again, it's alright, but the random tree usage kinda kills it for me. I'd suggest you limit yourself to 2 varieties of small tree max for most areas.

I decided to vote LiH because it has better design than ZebraStallion's.

Anton: Good caption, bad screen. It needs more detail.
LostInHyru1e: Nice Pure winter shot. *Votes* By the way, does the caption mean anything?
ZebraStallion: A lovely screen, and it would have gotten my vote had it not been for the clump of trees at the bottom. Use the bursh instead of huge tree clumps.

I think this week's captions are as good as its screenshots. icon_smile.gif

Okay, JUST because it's also an overlook doesn't mean I copied. I used Evile's mountain tiles also. So what? The only thing alike are Evile's mountains. That's it. I don't see why you have to go and try to embarrass me in front of the whole site by saying that I always copy you and Joe123. Just stop. I don't, okay? If you are "jealous" or something about me having an overlook like you and making your quest, "unoriginal," then that's just a little immature in my opinion. Besides, DarkFlameWolf and Mr. Z also use this concept in their quests. So stop trying to take away my votes.


Settle down, I'm just kidding. And who said I'm taking away your votes and embarrassing you? Your tied up with LiH for the moment. But you gotta admit, you DID get inspiration from me and Joe right? icon_naughty.gif

Okay, sorry for the outburst. it's really hard to tell whether your kidding or being serious when I'm reading text. icon_razz.gif

I do get inspiration, but I don't copy. I did have this overlook for a while now. I got the idea from an overlook when looking at Origin's overlook, and then I couldn't find a good backround until I saw your shot. I got the idea to use Evile's mountains (I keep on saying Evile's, are they really Evile's?) from you. But I swear to god I wasn't trying to plagiarize.

Yeah, these accidents do occur some times. Heck even LiH's screenshot looks a lot like an unreleased shot I made for SoD2.5 Enhanced.

NOTE: It's incomplete.

@Russ: It's "Your Mother" in Japanese.

Please think just a little bit before posting- TriMaster001 was simply pointing out a striking similarity between your shots, and responding by accusing TriMaster of jealousy and immaturity is a blatant troll. The fact that you apologized for it goes quite a long way, but that does not excuse your behavior. SotW has seen its fair share of trolling and flaming, and I think we'd all agree that clearing misunderstandings like this up before it comes to shouting would be the best way to handle ourselves in the future. Thanks for taking the time to read this. icon_smile.gif

Okay, I'll make sure it doesn't happen again. I didn't mean for it to sound so rude, but I read over my post again and I'd realized that it was trolling. So I edited out my post.

Tri- oh my gosh, that is very similar. But as you said, it was "Unreleased" and I've never seen that shot before. icon_smile.gif

Russ- the Japanese phrase says "Your mother." icon_biggrin.gif

Anton J3000:
I'm too old for this... telling about empty screens and detail each time a new questmaker arrives or continues work after a long pause... Long story short, don't put many of the same tile near each other, refrain from simmetry if possible and have more than one "object" on the screen. Currently the house is the only one.

LostInHyru1e:
Nice winter town, it has some empty-ish feeling, but maybe it's just me. Now, is it Pure or DoR? icon_blink.gif Vote.

ZebraStallion:
I'd say some very sarcastic, but I know how weak hearts people have nowadays, plus as I see from the above posts, the issue is 51% solved.


Also, TM001, I don't see any relevance between LIH's screen and the screen you just showed... both has a bridge, that's ALL. If you put a new bridge on one of your screens, everybody must delete all kind of bridges from all of their screens?
