This release is best served with an explanation for those of us previously unaware of this contest.

Boss Boss Boss Boss Strange-Building Boss?

Screens and screens4 were the only ones that seem worth posting, really. Even screens4 is poorly lit (for a competition where you're judging people on their model work?), making it hard to tell what's going on.

Good effort though, everyone!

pic 5 isn't a boss, just a pic of a sweet level for the boss in pic 6. You can blow up structures in that map. :)

there was a forum post on moddb.com: Moddb.com (still on 1st page of subforum)
and this thread: Moddb.com
and this one: Moddb.com
AND this one! Moddb.com
blogged several times: Moddb.com

it was reported on planetdoom, doomitalia & doomworld. Blogged about on IGN.

:D (really suprised about you dinky, i'm a friend, I figured it would update you when I posted a blog, new media, etc).

anyway...
rules for contestants:

Quote:*Doom 3 (not RoE, no mods required) 1.3.1
*it works in doom 3
*it must be done by jan 31st @ 23:59 EST (20:59 PST, 04:59 GST Feb 1st).
besides those, anything goes.

So the object was to take ~1.5 months and make a new boss for doom 3, any way you wanted. No limits on what could be done, size, etc.

Guess I'll need to try to get front page news for [url=http://www.doom3world.org/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=22418]next time[/url]. :D

Yeah, I'm surprised too. I generally find out about anything in relation to Doom 3, I don't know how this slipped by me.

I don't think I get updates on people unless I watch them. Just being a friend doesn't update me I guess... Now that I think about that, why don't I get informed of updates from my friends?? ModDB Staff, you guys should add friend updates. If MySpace and Facebook have this feature, why doesn't ModDB?

I'm sure you've noticed that there's not much doom 3 activity here, you should keep an eye on some other sites. Not because moddb.com wouldn't post anything, the people who do the stuff just don't post here is all.

Hmm first boss look very professional, rest of screens shoots don't show them in good way, much to dark or to far from point of view.

we're well aware of that & are planning accordingly for "next time". Have you tried them? Three of the bosses keep you on your toes so it was pretty hard to get get screens of them in combat situations.

if someone wants to download all @ once I added a new download to moddb.com:
