I've chcked for solutions on forums but can't get it working :( Any tips on how to solve this? Thanks...

(Btw, nice challenge!) :D



Use vis areas then.

Seems to be something with the renderer. I've tried putting the solid enclosed space inside a vis area, but it is still lit inside. The vis area does stop time of day from affecting the inside though.

Cry-Adam, do you know how to freeze an effect? To make it look frozen in time?

Hey, Adam.

- We can use both screenshot & video for entry?
- We can use only 1 entry for this competition?
- We can change shape of room freely within the size? Cube, Triangle, ok?
- No window or hole is ok? This means, only inside the room.
- - Transpearent walls are ok?

Do we start a thread once we are finished or when ever?

This sounds fun, I'm in. Actually started tonight. My idea is a Cry-Museum, lol. Basically Crysis objects scaled down into a small cabinet. To make things more interesting I made it more like a scene. It's really hard working with tiny objects like that, so it looks kinda funny. But I hope it'll be cool to walk around in the room and check out small displays of tiny Crysis objects. ^^

Can't find a WIP thread so I'm posting it here. I hope more people share their stuff as well!

Just curious if this would still count...

There is a hole in the ceiling that passes the 4m high mark....Would that not be allowed?

Perhaps block it with a window/glass just at the 4m mark just to be sure.
