    Hello Everyone,

    We want to make sure you all have the best set of assets and concepts to work with for the Scene Creation Jam. To insure this we need to push out the start of the contest, by two weeks, to September 20th. We sincerely apologize for the delay.

    - Starr

    To clarify this isn't a written in stone set date as of yet correct? This is a target date you're shooting for.

    Sept 6 was a first tentative date for us to attempt. Sept 20 feels much more solid (but I will refrain from referring to the words stone, set, final just yet)

    I do believe I'll see if I can organize a guild effort if enough of us are interested.

    Feel free to extend it even further into late October. That's when I'll have more time to participate. :)

    I really don't know what to expect from this challenge. Can anyone shed some light on what this will be about? Are we talking about drawing a scene?

    DarkStarr, I activated my 30 day trial edition of Unity Pro a little over a week ago in anticipation of the contest being early this month. Do you know if there is a way to extend the trial a bit?

    Also, thanks to the SotA team (and community asset creators) for taking the time to make such great assets for us to work with. I'm having a lot of fun with the kit and learning something new every day! :)

    This is a competition to see who can make the best Scene inside of Unity using our dungeon kits & assets. Chris has some more details he plans to get out this afternoon including a small practice scenario people can do this weekend if they still wanna jam.

    Has the Dungeon Kit been added to the Unity Store Yet (for us non-Developer+ pledgers)? I took a quick look but don't see it.

    I'm a total Unity beginner and hope to have a chance to play around before the contest., as a matter of fact I just downloaded Unity. ;)

    If you haven't already, you also might want to check out the Hangout of the Avatar - Unity Tutorial 1 video. It has a lot of gems that can help get you up-and-running quickly in Unity3D. :)

    (I think another one is planned for this Friday.)

    September 20th?? On my birthday??
    Hmm. Well, so I guess I am missing the first challenge instead of the third ... :)

    edit:
    Short Question; We do not NEED a Pro License of Unity for the challenge, or do we?
