ApexMods Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 Ghost Recon "Labor of Love" Mods Contest 2012 GR.net is proud to announce another prize contest. We will give away a dozen Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Complete Packs on Steam plus a dozen of our Ghost Recon Mods Collection on DVD to the next 12 modders (or mod teams) releasing a new "Labor of Love" mod for the original Ghost Recon here at GR.net until November 13th, Ghost Recon's birthday (Edit: contest extended until December 24th). For extra enticement, the best 3 mods (chosen by a jury of GR.net staff) will be awarded the following prizes: 1st Place: Astro Gaming A40 Audio System Astro Edition Gaming Headset & Mixamp 2nd Place: Logitech G19 Gaming Keyboard 3rd Place: Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 9 Gaming Mouse When we say "Labor of Love" mod, it means that we ask for some quality as to avoid people publishing e.g. an empty mission file just to earn a prize. The work must display considerable dedication and/or innovation. Valid mod entries don't necessarily need to be large (e.g. a single new mission can apply), but they need to provide features deemed worthy of the "Labor of Love" attribute by a jury of GR.net staff. Eligible mods must also participate in our "Sharing is Caring" license program. For those pondering what kind of mod to make, here are 10 suggested examples for inspiration: A single new mission with an intricate story backdrop, comprehensively outlined in an elaborate mission briefing accompanied by some nice briefing images and maybe even a voiceover. The mission itself with dynamically changing objectives depending on the team's performance and many randomized elements woven in for sustained replayablility. A set of new high-resolution skins for the Ghosts displaying attention to minute details like e.g. authentic uniform patterns, realistic fabric textures, accessories used by real operators, proper unit and rank insignia, or individual personalised features (beard, tattoo, lucky charm). A sound pack with updated realistic and balanced effects for weapon, environment, and maybe even character sounds. An equipment pack that reshuffles available kits to include new combinations of weapons to take into the field. A weapon realism mod to meticulously adjust handling, accuracy, recoil, stopping power etc. of all original weapons. A multiplayer team pack that changes the playable characters of all teams e.g. to civilians. A campaign with storytelling and puzzle-solving elements along the lines of an adventure game. A campaign that consists of (more or less interactive) movie sequences for laid back entertainment. A Duke Nukem conversion. A zombie mod. Ghost Recon is extremely easy to mod, so even absolute newcomers to the game and/or modding in general should be able to create something quite presentable in a short amount of time. Remember that the first 12 "Labor of Love" mods are sure winners, and if your work shines with excellence there is a fair chance to make it into the best three for the top prizes. You have less than 2 months to do this, so ready your modding skills and get going RIGHT NOW!
