Announcing the Winners!

[align=center]I am pleased to officially announce The Second Semi-Annual Great House Fliggerty Modding Invitational has come to a close!

***********************************************[/align]

The numbers were small, and the timeline was long...but we really enjoyed every bit of this.  This has really been a lot of fun.  And I'm really excited to announce who the winners are!

[align=center]***********************************************[/align]

There were a total of three submissions.

Taverns
The Flying Llama by Tshultze
Joey's Tavern by Officer Half

H.E.L.L.U.V.A. Add-ons
H.E.L.L.U.V.A. Spillats by Bladecutter

[align=center]***********************************************[/align]

Before the announcements, I want to take a moment and explain the judging process.

1.  I invited judges of all modding talent and experience levels, from some of the most well-known modders to some people who have only played with mods.  This allowed for a variety of perspectives, and resulted in a wide range of scores for different things.

2.  Points were available in each of the following categories: (score card is heavily based upon what they use at ORE)
    Comfort (5 points possible)
    Fitness of Purpose (5)
    Accuracy (5)
    Innovation (5)
    Lore (2)
    Outtandingness! (1)
    Other (2)
This provided a total possible 25 points.

3.  Points from each judge were totaled, and the average of all judges produced the final score.

4.  My contribution to the "judging" was simply compiling the scores, and identifying what everyone thought that each mod did best.  I didn't provide a score, and my thoughts did not factor into the final score.  He chose one home that fits his current needs more than any other.

The Flying Llama by Tshultze
Total Average Score: 11.3

Award:
Best Watering Hole

This one is great for the Balmora-based adventurer in all of us.  Sometimes that homesick feeling comes over you when you are somewhere else.  The Flying Llama is found off the plaza in Mournhold.  It feels very much like a small tavern in Balmora.  There are no rooms for rent, it's just a tavern.  A very nice place to stop for a drink and relax between excursions into the sewers.

H.E.L.L.U.V.A. Spillats by Bladecutter

Total Average Score: 16

Award:
Best Use of Community Resources

If you like decorating your home, you'll need this mod.  It provides many things for you to collect.  Specifically it includes spoons, pillows, and mats...which is where the name comes from.  I found it also includes quite a few dishes as well, most (if not all!) of which were made by kittybrod.  These items can be found just about anywhere!  From merchants to bandits and everywhere in between.


And finally....


Voted "Best Overall" in the invitational...


Joey's Tavern by Officer Half

Total Average Score: 19

Award:
Best Overall!

Joey's Tavern certainly could be the hub of a lot of interesting quests.  It included some custom textures, which really went a long way in factoring the scores.  There is obviously a lot going on here, from an apparent ongoing murder investigation to a mysterious reference to Emperor Travolta.

Well, that's it.  The award badges will be applied to each entrant's profile!

Once a few details have been worked out with the entrants, I hope to get all of these available for the public to download!

I want to thank everyone who had anything to do with this at all!  It has been a lot of fun, and I definitely look forward to the next invitational!

Congrats Blade and Tshultze!  :dancing-banana:

We need more people to enter next time though! Everyone won something which can be nice, but also makes you wonder. :P

Are these going to be released? I'd like to see the other entrant's mods. :)
I should read the OP next time.

I hope they will.  I'm going to be sending all of you guys some of the judges notes.  Once you've gone over what they have to say, and make any changes if you feel so inclined, I'd love for you to post them in the Invitational portion of the downloads.  :sheo:

Holy Sh!t I won!? that's amazing! :hoorah:  thank you guys so much for the score and congrats to Bladecutter and Officer_Half for their awards. Honeslty though, I thought that I would just be reading the names of 3 other people who won instead of two. i am saddened though at the fact that there weren't many entrant, it is just living proof that MW is a dying game (even though the mods surely aren't) hopefully this won't happen at the next invitational. but enough gloom it's time to celebrate! :bananacheer: :punkrock:

Well, if Fligg would allow graphical enhancements to be a main idea, then I would certainly considering myself as a participant.
