Warhawk Paint & Insignia Contest!

Dylan Jobe's Avatar + Posted by Dylan Jobe on Jan 30, 2008 // President, LightBox Interactive

It’s 2008 and the team and I would love to kick-off the New Year by extending a really cool contest to our eligible U.S. players! This is your chance to make your mark on the battlefield by entering the Paint Scheme and Insignia Contest!!

Contest_Banner1

As many of you know, we’re always working on game updates to keep the stream of fixes and new features flowing to our players. As such, we’re currently working on the Warhawk 1.3 patch which will include a collection of new, Player-Created insignias and paint schemes for you all to use when you customize your troops and aircraft.

SS_2

The team and I will be judging all the submissions and selecting the winners — 50 new insignias and 20 new paint schemes. Winners will not only get their stuff in the game, but will also win a limited edition Warhawk statue from Gentle Giant Studios.

SS_3

Now of course there are some ground rules…there are always rules :-(

This is common sense but just in case…don’t use other logos or previously created content or imagery. That means you WILL NOT be able to fly around with a official sports logo on your Warhawk or have the face of some hamburger salesman on your soldier’s helmet!! – As cool as that may be. Well…it would be cool for me as I’m big fan of Chicken Nuggets.

Here are some examples:

insignias4

No questionable content either please. I’m not going to describe various examples of questionable content…you all know what I’m talking about :-)

So for insignias…Here’s what you need to know:

  • The new insignia must be black and white.
  • White is opaque, and Black is fully transparent.
  • The ideal insignia uses only white, black and 50% gray.
  • The new insignia must be 64×64 pixels.
  • No words or text. The insignia must be graphic.
  • The insignia must be submitted in BMP, TGA or PNG file formats.
  • Do NOT submit your insignia in JPEG file format!

That’s the set of guidelines for the creation of insignias and some examples.

Now let’s talk paint schemes. Here are the Warhawk paint templates that you’ll use for your submission.

Custom_Nemesis5

Once you’ve downloaded the template, you can apply your paint scheme much like using a coloring book. Although, if your submission has the quality of a 3-year-old’s rendering of Dora the Explorer…well, then you are immediately disqualified!!! :-)

Custom_Warhawk6

Here’s an example of what a good war paint submission looks like if you were the leader of…oh, let’s say the “Airborne Banana Clan” :-)

EXAMPLE_Custom_Warhawk7

Note that you don’t have to be a PhotoShop expert to submit a paint scheme, Keep in mind that not all paint programs may work.

Here are some other guidelines and steps that you should be aware of:

  • Go to the official site and make sure you read all the rules!!!
  • Use a paint program on your PC or MAC to fill in your design in like a paint-by-numbers … but without the numbers.
  • Avoid tiny details!
  • The best paint schemes feature clear and bold graphic lines and forms.
  • Again…DO NOT use logos or other previously created content.
  • The paint scheme template can be submitted in JPEG format.

Ok, now for the critical info…pay attention!!

Please send your submissions to playstation_community_support@playstation.sony.com
Make sure that the subject line reads “Warhawk Insignia” or “Warhawk Paint” depending on what you are submitting. And yes, you can make more than 1 submission. Please also include, in the body of your email, your full name, Telephone Number, and PSN handle.

Lastly, the deadline…

The submission deadline is February 15th, 2008 at 11:59pm PST!

If you have any questions please, please, please be sure to hit the official contest Web site for all the details…hypothetically speaking my blog entry *might* not cover everything so please check out the official site so our lawyers are happy :-)

We can’t wait to see all of the cool insignias and paint schemes that you come up with! Also, keep your eye’s posted to this BLOG and Warhawk.com for new info and an update on the upcoming Warhawk 1.3 patch!

Dylan, any chance of doing a double XP weekend sometime? I’ve been playing since day 1, but for the first month my stats weren’t recording. Lately I’ve been playing a lot, but it’s going to take some time until I rank up to my next rank (i’m a Wing Leader) with 6,000 points to go.

Dylan, define pretty soon, youve been saying pretty soon for a while now. I dont think that giving us the details of the Patch will compromise the content very much. We all understand that changes can and do happen. We just would like something to look forward to.

two thing dylan

first what is warhawk – broken mirror to be release 20-03

two do u think that it will be possible to make an option for player ranked server to force change player,let say im playing a game in my team we are 3,other team 6 and no one change to come help us out,it would be a great feature for the person who made the server to take someone from the other team and switch it in the team with less player,or just when the team are uneven

My brother uses my account and it looks like he has cheated. I have all of a sudden got a ridiculous amount of flag saves and over 30000 points in a round? Can these 30000 points be erased or if not my stats wiped please, I don’t want to continue playing now only to be erased later.

My user ID is The_Shuffle and the points are on Badlands if you want to look at the stats. Thanks!
