Hello MyVMKers! We just realized recently that we do not have any current designer applications open! Therefore we are opening them to everyone! If you want to be a designer, read this thread and apply! You may be one of the next MyVMK Designers! Any designs you submit need to be done correctly, so please read everything carefully. Also, you may submit as many items as you like. If you have any questions please contact either @HOST_Nala ,@VMK_Simba, or @VMK_Schweetz. You may reply here with any questions, but please keep this thread on topic! Designers - We try to be a month ahead with our release planning, to avoid running around at the last minute. Therefore, you will know our theme before it's announced to the public. By being part of the team, this information along with anything discussed within the designer chat must remain confidential. - You must be able to commit enough time to finish any items you agree to complete, before the deadline. Remember, the item needs to be created, added, then tested in game. So you will need to be able to allow enough time for all of these steps to be completed, taking into account any issues that may arise. Requirements: You will need a Skype account. You will need to complete at least 2 items per month Types of items allowed: Hats: - For hats and hair, you can use the avatar below as a reference for the direction the item should be facing, along with letting you see what it might look like on an avatar. Please note we will need hats and hair to be separate to the background layer, we will need each image for it in its own file, zipped. Spoiler: Avatar Model Pins: - Pins are typically no larger than 120x120 pixels when created for the game. Please keep this in mind when making yours. 1x1 Items: -Basically for a 1x1 item, you just have to make sure it's around the size of other 1x1 items in the game (as in it fits within the bounds of one grid space, or just over). There aren't any technical size limits besides that, but we can't give specifics because that's not really how it works. Larger Items: -Similar in scope to a 1x1 item, you just have to make sure it's around the size of other items in the game (as in it fits within the bounds of the grid spaces, or just over). There aren't any technical size limits besides that, but we can't give specifics because that's not really how it works. - Here are a couple files for light/dark grids, that might help you a bit. Spoiler: Light Grid Spoiler: Dark Grid Spoiler: Normal Grid We want you to be creative so think outside the box! It does not need to be based around this month's current theme, but it does need to fit with the style of the game. Outfits - Due to how complicated making custom outfits is, we won't be accepting any at this time. BUT, you can still submit them. They won't be able to be used in the game due to them needing to be made in a complicated special way. If you make it onto the team, the process can be taught to you. You can submit your work here! DO NOT SHARE YOUR APPLICATION ANYWHERE ELSE, and DO NOT post your application on this thread! **Please make sure you ATTACH the files for any items you are submitting to your application! Even if you have them in a forums post, if you are making hats, you need to view the file we have here, and put it in the proper formatting. This part is very important! Also, you MUST submit items! This is a design challenge, so we need to actually see your work! If there is not an option to upload, you must upload it elsewhere (Ex: dropbox, etc) and add the link to the files in your application.
