Eggcentric Retextures Contest Winners!

Roblox News Egg Hunt 2013! Opening today/tomorrow.
A long time ago in a galaxy far away, I launched an egg retexture contest for the Roblox News Egg Hunt. Now some of you may be wondering why has this post taken so long; and I have a couple reasons to offer in answer to this.
  1. The egg hunt was delayed a few weeks as our lead programmaer TechTeam911 was busy with a very important exam and he wanted to release the game when it had reached the highest quality. This meant the contest winners could not be announced earlier. 
  2. I too have also been extremely busy recently with revision for my 9 exams this summer, so I have been unable to post regularly to RN.

However, that's enough excuses for one day: it's time to reveal the winners of the Eggcentrix Retextures! As always, the quality of the retextures were top notch and it was difficult to narrow it down to 3 winners, but a decision was finally made! The entries chosen provided a careful balance of colour, design and creativity which is paramount when retexturing. The winners are as follows:


1st Place - Demons Heart Egg by McVisibility 
McVisibility - Demons Heart Egg
Boasting a menacing colour scheme and intriguing egg design, this entry screams flare. The frosted glass style pattern on this Fabergé egg paired with the detailed shading makes for an effective aesthetic combination. The colour of the base blending well with the main design adds a nice finishing touch. 


2nd Place - Hexagon Egg by mew1226
Hexagon Egg
This entry features a brilliant colour scheme coupled with a detailed, eggcentric design. Making up the overall texture of the egg, the hexagons add a huge amount to this entry. The six pointed star on the front of the design adds real dimension to the egg.


3rd Place - Weaved  Fabergé Egg by rebellion666

Featuring an excellent weaved design and great colour mapping, the Weaved Fabergé Egg boasts originality. The weaving looks incredibly realistic with a high level of detail, with the colours ading feel of directional lighting to the design. 


So, there are our winners! A massive thank you is owed to everyone for their patience in waiting for the results and to everyone who entered in their egg retextures! There were many fantastic designs with several runners up to the winners!

 The winners will be implemented into the Roblox News Egg Hunt 2013 with a unique ability created by the devious mind of TechTeam911. Each egg will come complete with a cool looking badge and prestige as these will be the rarest eggs available!

Thanks for reading!
