TennoGen Round 21 Deadline


Recommended Posts

Hi Tenno,

We’re beyond excited to share the deadline for TennoGen Round 21 in an effort to give our artists plenty of time to put the final touches on their latest creations!

The TennoGen Round 21 deadline is September 7th, 2021 at 2pm ET! After that, we will be reviewing all items submitted or updated after February 21st, 2021.

If you have an item that has been in the workshop for a significant amount of time (over a year), we strongly recommend resubmitting to avoid any chance of us missing the updated version. In general, having a fresh submission for items uploaded before February 21st is always recommended to ensure it gets reviewed, but we do our best to catch as many updated pieces as we can.

There are some texture file name changes and general texture optimization changes that should be considered in your pieces prior to submission.

Texture Optimization:

Back when Update 29.3.1 shipped, we released part two of our Great Ensmallening, which involved changes to our texture compression. This affects TennoGen artists, and we want your pieces to perform the best that they can. As a result, we are offering the following recommendations to include in your workflow (if they do not exist already):

  • Test all of your textures at in-game resolution, and make sure you test them together at this resolution. You can see final resolution numbers in the Final Submission Checklist available here or in the file download.
  • Optimize your UVs to get the most out of your limited resolution. Good UV mapping practices go a long way in helping your piece look its best, so check out online resources on how to improve this important skill.
  • Avoid adding micro-details to your normal maps. These can get incredibly busy and messy once they are added in-game. If you want to add micro-details to your piece, you can request that we use our own internal atlas detail in your submission’s readme document.

Our texture guide has been updated to include these tips (and the naming convention changes) for future creators!

Additionally, we are requiring the inclusion of one clearly marked in-game resolution screenshot of the full item for your submissions to ensure that artists and the community have a better idea of what the item will look like if it makes it into Warframe! All screenshot guidelines can be found below:

Screenshot Guidelines:

  • Spoiler
    • All creations must be submitted with the following screenshot guidelines, so we can properly judge your creation. We reserve the right to reject items without proper screenshots, due to our inability to properly review your item.
    • Please make sure to include a tint breakdown.
    • Have at least one well-lit screenshot on a 50% grey background and uncoloured lighting.
    • For Skins and Syandanas, make sure the colouring in your screenshots matches the colouring in the files you uploaded.
    • For Warframe Alt-Helmets, please be sure to match the base colours of the Warframe in your files and in one of the screenshots!
    • Make sure your screenshots are all up to date! If you have comparison shots for previous versions, please indicate which screenshots are of the current iteration -- aka the ones we should be evaluating!
    • IMPORTANT: Include one full view screenshot of your creation at in-game resolution that is clearly marked (ex: text in the corner that says “IN-GAME RESOLUTION”). Just the front view is fine, but if you want to include multiple angles, that is more than welcome.
    • Finally, provide both back, front and side views of your creation so we can see the whole picture. These views should not be partial -- we need to see the FULL item from all sides.

     

That should be it! Lots to review, all in the name of making TennoGen items the best they can be.

Happy creating, Tenno!

Fellas, I'm sorry to have to remind you all, but you guys have to remember about a key line that's in this announcement, and one that has been true practically ever since TennoGen has started:

This is pretty self-explanatory, right? So, I would suggest lowering your expectations and wishes a little bit, especially when requesting items that haven't been updated yet. Like for example, Nidus Blade of the Lotus won't be reviewed for this Round until it reaches this basic requirement. I'm not saying that it won't, but rather, it would be better to wait and see if the creator will update the piece before asking for DE to accept it.

It's the cut-off date to when items would be considered for this Round.

im not the worlds biggest wisp fan....but i wouldnt be surprised if we get a whole bunch of wisp skins this time because daym there are some nice ones.

Yeah, I'm excited. :laugh:

Wouldn't mind seeing a new skin for Revenant either. Hopefully Hitsu-san updates his so that it can make it in.

As far as I know, from what he said on the Workshop comments, DE doesn't want it. "i never got feedback on it means they think this is irredeemable (of which i had confirmation to be sure)." If this is the case, they gotta re-look at their decisions because Revenant just became a greek mythology horse not long ago as a Deluxe.

I'm more tuned into Wisp at this time, since she might be the one to get the better skins this TennoGen. Hoping to see Wyllou Wisp sometime soon.

Yeah, that is a shame, I thought it was a great skin, I would have loved to use the head with Revenant's deluxe skin. Personally I'm looking forward to Wisp Zamariu as well as her Coven skin (fingers crossed).
