    Whee! Maybe now I can finish the stuff I started for the previous billboard competition.

    This department oversees all mining operations on Rubi-Ka, Notum and otherwise. They also handle the allocation, out-of-corporation sales, and on-planet transportation of raw materials on Rubi-Ka. Due to a minor technicality that pre-dates Clan uprisings, Omni-Mining operates as an arm of Omni-Engineering, but has its own independent leadership. In addition, they have their own internal goals that include, but aren't limited to, anti-union enforcement and control of policing activity in mines and their associated facilities. Omni-Mining was once a quaint, quietly-run department, but once it was discovered that Clan activity originated in their men, they became much more authoritative and rigid.

    Omg the freaks have come out of the woodwork!

    Do you really think that the peeps at FunCom can't take whatever format file you produce and edit/manipulate it to what they need ?

    talk about over complicate it .....

    .jpg in ZIP or RAR because then you get CRC error check.

    70-90% comprssion - usually works well for most images

    whaterver DPI

    8, 16 or 24 bit CMYK or RGB... click of a button and it can be changed anyway

    adobe 98 is good form most stuff - but most peeps don't even know what that is - so Im sure FC are not bothered about ICC profiles.

    Interlaced or not ..... who cares ?

    They have all the graphical editing tools you could ever want and more... don't you think?

    /flame me now ... kthxbye.....

    small question

    i was wondering if we could use bits of (concept)art in the allready small image?
    or does the image has to be 100% thought up of your own?

    Woot, gonna work right on it!

  11. #11

  12. #12
    Yes, you may use in-game screenshots and concept art. There are no specific dpi requirements only that the size resolution is 256x128 and it is under 1MB per submission.

    Some excellent submissions streaming in... Keep up the good work!

    I have a question... I run a fansite ( and was thinking of submitting to the billboard competition. But then another player pointed out that this is supposed to be for Orgs. Is there another method of submission I should seek out for a Fansite billboard? or can I submit to this as well.

    Here's a question, will you post the entries for all to see? I for one would love to see all the wonderful entries. (not just the winners in game)

    Perhaps make an 'Org Listing" that uses the billboard art if available?

    Just a thought, Cheers!

    Yeah, can we have all entries and an ETA please :]
