Categories:

 

DCS: F-14A

 

DCS: F-14B

 

DCS: AJS-37

 

 

Prizes:

 

Winners in each category will have their submission included in the official release for the corresponding DCS module (conditions apply, see below).

 

Runner Up andCommunity Choice will receive a Heatblur module of their choice.

 

 

Rules:

  • One (1) entry per person per category. Bring us your very best.
  • No trademarked logos can appear on liveries. For example, do not create a brown livery and add the UPS logo.
  • No nudity.
  • No profanity.
  • No politics.
  • Liveries should honor the Tomcat / Viggen legacy. For example, you can make a pink teddy bear livery, but let’s be real. It won’t win. It might get an honorary mention though, depending on the teddy bears.



 

Time:

 

This competition will run for 60 days although extensions can be agreed upon.

 

 

Submissions:

 

Each submission should be presented with no less (but feel free to add beauty shots) than 7 screenshots; front, back, left side, right side, top and bottom of aircraft in full daylight and full view of the screenshot, preferably in 1080, 2k or 4k quality. Additionally, close up shots and/or a short video will be appreciated as we may compile the best videos into a publication. Please do not use post-processing (this includes Reshade) for the screenshots. However, videos can be presented in any way you see fit.

 

A mission where the F-14 and Viggen is flying using autopilot will be provided for ingame video and photos in order to keep all entries on an equal footing. You can change the AI flights, daytime, but not the date, weather and theatre of the mission.

 

Each submission must include a zip folder with the livery, ready to be installed and working in DCS as well as a text file that includes name of artist (full name and ED forum user name) and relevant contact information (at the minimum a working email address) - your private information will not be shared without your consent. The winners shall be named by ED forum user name.

 

No PSD files in the Zip file, please. Winners will be asked to provide source files upon completion of the contest.

 

 

Please submit a full livery including pylons. Any artwork not included in the Heatblur paint kits should be your own unless approved by and credited to the original artist.

 

All submissions are to be posted in this thread only, please:

Please find the official mission for submissions here:

Please understand that we want to separate discussions and submissions for overview: discussions to be kept in this thread, and submissions in the submission thread only. Any posts not including submissions in the submissions thread will be deleted. thank you for your kind understanding.

 

 

Heatblur Simulations reserve the rights to collaborate with any of the winners to adjust the final livery before inclusion into the official release as they see fit. Heatblur Simulations reserves the right to make changes to any selected livery upon inclusion and/ or remove it at a later point. With the submission of your livery and entry into the competition you, the participant, preliminarily agree that your livery, screenshot and video material can be used by Heatblur in any way we see fit. Heatblur Simulations reserve the right to disqualify any entry without reason and to not select any winners. No winners shall be selected if no livery is up to standards, in which case a rerun of the competition will be set for a later date.

Sounds very exciting!! :thumbup:

 

Can you tell us if the livery has to be real or fictitious?

 

If it abides by the rules, it can be anything you come up with. Of course, it should fit into the Tomcat hemisphere of aesthetics for inclusion, say like a galaxy rangers livery does not really fit, haha, if you catch my drift.

Will we have both the early beige+brown splinter scheme and the new blue-ish scheme for the IRIAF cat?

It seems that historical and plausible skins probably stand the best chance here. I plan on submitting some separately for consideration of less well known Tomcat squadrons but I have a pretty neat idea for the competition, if you guys haven't done it already.

 

It depends, fictitious foreign nations for example can be great additions, too, etc... Some will fit more, some less, in the end it just needs to fit kinda in the aircraft's universe. Whatever you guys come up with, and in the end, if you make a galaxy rangers skin that blows our minds, well... I guess what I am trying to say: do not set your creativity boundaries. You all know the aircraft well enough, to know what could or could not be a great idea.

@IronMike When do we get the mission?

 

I'm still completely wrapped up in finishing the campaign, I hope I can make it over the weekend.

I really hope to see more Viggen skins, it is not as popular as the others.

A suggestion: Looking forward to this one maybe...

Maybe a little bit less weathered, just so that it is flight worthy...

Wish list: late DCS: GR.1 (with GR.1B) Tornado, Improved Combined Arms (like OFP/ArmA I/ArmA II), Improved Logistics

Build: Ryzen 3800X on X570, GTX 980 Ti, 32GB DDR4-3200 | Virpil T-50CM Stick & Throttle, MFG Crosswind Pedals, TrackIR 5
