THE VANGUARD

Sworn defenders of the Galactic Nations. These super soldiers are cybernetically enhanced, gifts granted to them by the power source Heluim3. Because of these man made super powers they are only dispatched in the most dire of situations. Now an attack on the one of the largest heluim3 mining outposts in the system has forced the hand of the Galatic Nations and the Vanguard has been sent in.

VOID PIRATES

These femme fatales descend from the Eridanus Supervoid, a dark matterless sector of deepspace and ransack mining outposts for Helium3, equipment and machinery. Because of their harsh living conditions they often have artificial limbs and support themselves on whatever they can steal. They've just begun an attack one the of the largest Helium3 outposts in the system, if they can make it out alive they will live like queens!

Moska,

Last year's contest was voted on by the users and contestants. This year it's in house voting done by the creative team.

Your not giving yourself a fair chance if you fail once and never try again.

I think your getting caught up in the needless details.

Keep to the poly count. Mesh organization is unimportant.

We would like a texture sheet, an image with all the textures in one so we can see them all at once. If submitting the maps is easier just do that.

12DAYS remain!
