    Hi all,

    The next challenge will be our third challenge and will also have some more time for you to join.
    The theme will be disclosed later but I can ensure you that this one is for all skill levels and has a lot of room for imagination :).
    How to participate?
    Option #1:
    Join the Modding for Dummies discord Server and tell the admins that you're joining the challenge and upload the finished mod to the repo with “MFD modding challenge 3 level (level name)” in the subtitle. Then share the link to the dedicated channel when you post it. We will try to help people during this challenge but please keep in mind that we cannot be online 24/7.
    Option #2:
    Tell us in this thread that you're joining the challenge and upload the finished mod to the repo with “MFD modding challenge 3 level (level name)” in the subtitle. Then share the link in this thread.

    When is it?
    The next challenge will start next monday(1-7-2019) and will end on Saturday 31-8-2019. This means that you have more time to make something :)

    The challenge will be announced on the starting date so stay tuned :)

    Rules
    • Don't start before the starting date
    • Don't steal
    • Be original
    • No NSFW content
    • Follow rules
    Criteria
    The jury will judge the mods by looking for:
    • Mesh detail/skin quality
    • Jbeam quality
    • Configs and their descriptions
    • Creativity
    • Realism
    • Console errors
    We will give feedback on all entries.
    The prize
    Just like last time, the prize will be a custom made Modding For Dummies medal made by
    @Ai'Torror. This means that you have to share your adress if you win this challenge. We will remove all of your info after we sent it of course, no surprise pizza's from us!


    Additional notes
    Since this is the third challenge that we host, we will learn while doing. We listen to feedback(which is why we have two months now) and want feedback from you.

    Skill level:
    We do not expect full cars or stuff like that. It should be an entry level modding challenge. We will try to be online often to check on the challenge sub-channels on discord, as well as in this thread and help with any questions.
    We also don't really want to see a config or a skin, it can be part of the entry but we think that you should be able to create a part or a prop for this game, even if you have no modding experience.
    In our server we have a few tutorials, the Box tutorial is a good starting point for a very basic part mod.
    You can also find it here: https://www.beamng.com/threads/tutorial-simple-vehicle-addon-mod.54422/


    If you have any questions you can ask them over here or on the MFD discord Server.

    Good Luck!

    Summertime!
    The next Modding for Dummies challenge will have a nice theme for the summer holidays. The theme will be:

    Water and beaches

    Go create something original to use on/in the beaches or the water, whether it's a destructible life guard stand, an inflatable hopper or unicorn or a nice beach cruiser, get ready to make something to show off in Italy or Jungle Rock Island!
    Creativity, cool concepts and well executed mods will be rewarded. Are you new to the challenge? Join and get the Playcar by BLIJo after you submit your entry.
    For rules and info, check the previous announcement

    Good luck and have fun!

    Brass to be exact.
    We slightly modified the reward for the next challenge so it will be cut all the way threw, but around 2.5mm deep the head of the mill I used broke off (as it turns out... Cheap mill from some tool set bought in Lidl isn't the best for cutting brass) so the current challenge reward will have to be finished by hand and all other ones will be made with a proper set of mills, also they will be a little thinner from 5ish mm to around 4 mm (I say ish since some material is removed when polishing).

    Time to bump this thread a little and ask how the modding is going?
    Reward is waiting (the bottom one).
