In the interest of bringing our community cool new competitions to participate in and win neat prizes, Mod DB has partnered up with Scion and AmpedMods - to present Scion Skin2Win!

Scion Skin2Win

So if you are feeling creative and want to give a Scion car a slick paintjob - now is your chance. Not only that but the person who creates the best skin (as voted by you) will walk away with $1000 dollars cash.

To get started and read the full competition details, head on over to Scion.ampedmods.com. There you can download the 3D models which you are then able to paint, stylize, and modify (add your own spoilers, rims etc).

There will be a $1,000 prize for the Overall Best Entry plus gift certificates and games for runners-up in the following categories; user voted best entry, user voted runner up and for the best Scion tC entry and the best Scion xB entry. You have 1 month to make your creation with the competition closing on June 25, 2007... so you better get started!

Good Luck ALL!

Not only can you skin it but they give you the option to modify the actual model. That means you have to do real work if you want a chance in hell of winning... $1,000 bucks sounds great and all but if you gonna work your butt off you expect to get paid, lol...

rs4cal, Initially when we first came up with the idea for the competition we were going to make it a skinning competition only. However we wanted to be able to give modders as-much freedom as possible and flexibility to showing off their creations so we thought that minor changes to the model itself wouldn't be a bad thing.

Remember just because a car has a new shiney spoiler or something does not mean it will win, the skin matters just as much!

MODDBUSER that is totally wrong. What can you really do to modify a car that actually looks good? Add a spoiler, lower it, add a bodykit etc... I mean that hardly makes a massive difference and if you did try to do something really fancy it generally ends up crap.


Check out the scion site or the image above (made by the scion guys) for ideas on skins. Just a few different colors here and there can look awesome, so you need not make anything complex.

Erm.. now the webpage loaded (very slowly though) and i downloaded the files but i seem to have the SAME problem as KrAyZiE.

Can not open the files. Winrar tells me: !
E:\downloads\Skin2Win_Scion_xB.zip: The archive is either in unknown format or damaged

Sorry for posting again but i think it sucks that there is the option that we can edit the model as well, it should be either modeling or texturing. the last contest was already about modeling. I am only able to texture but now that i read it is wished that we also edit the default model i dont even have to start because nomatter how good my texture is, i wouldnt have a chance with the default model.

the unwrap job is horrible. The windows and windshield wipers are overlayed over all the other uv coordinates, i thought maybe they put them on a separate channel, i guess we have to do that ourselves.
