Trains contest results!
The builders had to choo-choose a 40x14 sized lot at most and build a train, or something realistic that goes on rails. The entries are listed below from the highest to the lowest score.
Exodio and Toad_ went from entry to entry and judged them on how well they stuck to the theme and how well they looked.
This contest ran from 2015-08-11 to 2015-08-25.
Exodio: Great detail! Engine looks phenomenal. Beautiful addition to the museum. Was hoping for a bit more of an interior to tour.
Toad_: I really like how you did the locomotive so classic but so good and well built. Looks so real in the game!
Exodio: Points off for being Canadian. ;) Like the engine. A good, solid construction with good details all about. Felt a bit gypped that I couldn't get into the cockpit. Great use of banners for the details.
Toad_: I really liked what you did with the banners and the signs.It's really nice that you did a modern train then doing old locomotive trains like the others.
MurderMerls' Choo-Choo of Death!!
Exodio: Great looking engine. Very thematic. Great details all over. Amazing interior. But where is my bounty? :( The level of love that went into this makes it my fave.
Toad_: As Sheolden once said"i call it the Cow-Blower" it looks nice!and It looks really original!Thought i didn't like the fact that there's no rails and that the bottom of the train is touching the ground...but the rest looks good!
Exodio: Fairly basic model. I like that it runs on grain. Small point, the wheels went into the rails. Kind of hard to move it! Overall lack of detail.
Toad_: It looks nice but too plain.
Derailed Hand Car
Exodio: I feel like you phoned this one in, Sphenicus. What are you, early 2000s Bruce Willis?
Toad_: It's really cool that you made a hand car...I wouldn't have thought something like this!
Failed CSX train
Exodio: "Failed"? I'd say this is a nice abstract piece. I liked the inclusion of a tunnel. The wheels were a bit hard on the eyes. Overall it looks a bit unfinished, but not failed-ly so.
Toad_: I like what you did there with the tunnel. The train looks fine but next time. Keep it up!
Exodio: Another fairly basic model, with a lack of detail both inside and out. Is that a tank tread on each side? I'd love to be in the army with a tank train!
Toad_: It's too HUGE and TOO PLAIN.Don't get it wrong but I think you should have put more thoughts on it. But i think it was your first time...building a train isn't easy so if you felt bad try not too.
These entries are not officially part of the contest, either because they were built by players involved in running the contest or people who have willingly removed themselves from the competition.
Montreal Streetcar #1959
Exodio: This should have been a Bar Car.
Toad_: I like the fact that you made a streetcar! Before i entered for be a judge I was planing to do one at the first place too! I guess you were destined to do it!
