I got Adam's course and it installed fine. I grabbed a couple screenshots.

I guess we need to decide .... wait until the other contest courses are ready or go ahead and make it available? :shrug:
There seemed to be a difference of opinion, so you designers need to reach an agreement.

I will hold for now.

Personally I like the idea of a particular deadline day for all given that its a competition, and the huge excitement around having a whole bunch of courses to download and try all at once. It might feel like a bit of an anti-climax if they are released, drip-feed style, one by one. Also, without a deadline people might not get round to finding the time to finish (I always was a procrastinator - aren't we all? :bg: ), and others still might not want to bother once they've played Adam's course given the quality of his screenshots ;)

As for me - I'm snookered either way as the machine I was working off of was my wife's laptop - which is currently in to its third week at the IT 'specialists'... I'll struggle to get my final 3 holes done in time even if we leave it until 28th Dec... :rolleyes:

Since we have had a couple late-comers, plus those who are experiencing technical difficulties, I vote for the deadline to be 11:59pm Sunday, January 2nd. I also vote for all downloading and judging to begin at 12:00am January 3rd.

I agree with Adam, and since he finished his first, he should get to choose, especially when it comes to his own course. When we do start voting, I suggest a scoring system, much like when we did the first collaboration course many years ago. Everyone can vote, but to help avoid a tie situation, we rank them 1-3 or maybe 1-5. Contest designers can vote too, but are not allowed to vote their own course.

I'll go along with extending the time out, just past new year, both for entries in and finished, and being available for download.

It's a busy time of year, and I won't get around to trying any new courses until after new year, as I will be driving around to visit family. I am looking forward o seeing what everyone has come up with though. For voting, maybe go with a 1 - 5 system, depending on the final number of courses submitted.

Just my 2 cents worth.

If its ok with everyone else and you want to change to January 2nd midnight January 3rd It's OK by me. I just test played my finished version. Still need to make a few corrections but It should be finished before Christmas.

I'm feeling the need to withdraw from the contest. I'm no where near done, and the new deadline is a week before my wedding. However, I should have two courses ready to upload by the middle of January.

This plot is amazing. I have two full courses, and plan on playing with this one plot for a while longer, just seeing what I can get out of it.

Thanks all.
