Golthar has hit the spot ! Never give up unless you are 100% sure you can''t do it.
You could propose your idea, and I bet that faithful members (including me) will be willing to give their opinion about the difficulty of the concept.
And I swear I won''t steal the idea I already have mine ! Well, almost

Just one question about making demos in general.
Do you use a storyboard or something like that to make your demos ? I've got an idea for my demo, don't know if I will achieve to bring it to the screen as I have a long way to go before that. But a contest is definitively the best occasion to break my limits and learn as much as I can so I'll try. Just wanted some help to organize myself as this will be the first time I make a demo that require more than 2 days to code.

for every demo i make, i draw some storyboards, small sketches, and write a few ideas which i might forgot later. all that before coding. if you don''t, then programming a demo is a real mess in most cases (for complex camera movement, scene cuts, etc), well in my opinion. um is that what you meant ?

A. why not :D I will join.. let''s hope I can make something

Earth, wind,fire and water...

That sounds like particle systems I''ve never wrote one but it should be a good practice..

Earth, terrain generation.. that''s something I also never made(yes, I now i''m terrible :D)

Wind, animation of a bending tree or something..

Let''s start working :D

About the 4 Elements contest, everyone who would like to join the team could write it down here (it seems a good place) and we might start some brainstorming to get a pitiful/decent/good/great/incredible (choose whichever you want) idea.

Also, we might choose if we either make a game or a demo.
A game covers a wide range of abilities, so with a game we could learn more things.
We already do demos, so with a demo we could share more accurate knowledge.
I see it as a choice between diversity versus quality. I might be wrong, though.


For anyone who hasn''t read the 3D game programming contest organization topic, he''s a summary of the idea :
We would like to make a NeHe Productions team and enter the GameDev.Net''s Four Elements Contest so we can share knowledge during the development, and if we win the contest we shall give the prize to NeHe


Ok. I''m in.
Who''s in ?
