The Loading Screen Contest - Winners!

Recommended Posts

Hello Kerbonauts! 

The Loading Screen Contest has come to an end and we are just blown away by the amount of submissions we received, and more so by the artistry of our amazing community, so a huge shout-out to all participants. Thank you so much! 

Before we go any further, we want to invite you to this thread to check out the outstanding entries we received, it will be worth your while, we promise. 

With over 600 pieces, ranging from awesome 3D renders, amazing screenshots and inspiring fan-art, selecting the winners was no easy task, and although we would have loved to include all of them, we had to carefully select 9 winners based on originality, creativity and artistic ability, all while trying to include a diverse set of images that represented the Kerbal spirit.

The winners are...

(drum rolls...)

Congrats to all the winners! Your screenshots look fantastic!

I’m slightly worried about this though...all of these screenshots use a bunch of mods, especially visual ones, and they might confuse new players because the stock game looks nothing like them.

TBH, many of the old loading screens also show parts that have been long gone or drastically changed. So I wouldn't really be worried about that.

Yes, but the environment shown in those old screenshots still look fairly stock-ish. These screenshots, while lovely, use mods that add things like clouds and realistic oceans that simply aren’t in the stock game, which could mislead people.

I do believe it was an art contest, not a screenshot contest, wasn't it?

They reached out and asked which mods were used, so they know exactly what to credit. I guess it will not be difficult to just specify it on the loading screen itself. Not a lot of text, considering my case (just two mods). Just like in KSP 2 trailer they can also just put "not actual gameplay" disclamer somewhere. ;)

"we should let you, the community, submit your illustrations, screenshots, pictures and/or any form of fanart you’d like to see in KSP’s loading screens!"

I mean, nobody thinks kerbal looks like this:

and especially not like this:

 

A few screenshots, tastefully labeled like Dok_377 said, should be fine!

 

Plus yeha, it was an -art- contest so i'm glad a lot a few paintings and highly processed stuff got in, even if that means clouds added in w/photo editing

Awesome arts to see while I wait for the 9,453,278 MM patches to be applied.

Congrats to the winners and to everyone who submit, thanks for all the fish wallpapers.

PS: One step closer to 1.8 :D

The winch and the clouds are the only non-stock things that really stick out to me. Who knows, in revamping the atmospheric bodies they may add clouds yet...!

It is a pity that most of the pictures presented do not reveal the essence of the game at all. They demonstrate an exceptionally beautiful picture, but the game itself in reality does not look like that. Congratulations.

They do match the style and variation of all the other loading screen pictures, though.

Your truth. Yes, and the pictures are beautiful it is indisputable.

It’s just a pity that I did not win... :D

Yup, those were some of my favourites! Good choices!

So they don’t represent actual gameplay. Neither do most of the current loading screen pics

The first one gets really close to showing actual gameplay, it only has one mod part, the rest is probably photoshop. My picture only has a slight bloom effect and a dark sky, the rest of it is completely untouched. You can get practically almost the same result in the stock game (+dlc) if you position the camera correctly. Dust on Duna and picture with Real Plume - yep, that's a stretch. Remaining ones are just renders and art, which isn't even gameplay at all.

第一个非常接近于显示实际的游戏玩法,它只有一个模部分,其余的可能是的Photoshop。我的照片只有轻微的绽放效果和黑暗的天空,其余的部分则完全没有被触及。如果正确放置相机,则在库存游戏(+ dlc)中几乎几乎几乎相同的结果。在杜纳(Duna)上扬起灰尘,并用Real Plume拍摄-是的,这很麻烦剩下的只是渲染和艺术品,甚至根本不是游戏玩法。 

Yes, I used PS for post processing.
In addition to KAS, KJR next is also used to stabilize the shaft. MJ2 is also important. Mod should be considered part of the game.
Loading screen Perhaps the most important thing to bring to the novice is the beauty and fun of space exploration (a good impression for novices)
Just like the cover of a manga is exquisite and delicate, but what is attracting is the content inside.

Congrats to the winners, they look amazing!

To be honest though, i feel like only one or two of them will be good as loading screens.

I was absolutely sure the @Exaxis entry would be selected 5 seconds after seeing it.

I could not foresee any other one, because most of them were all absolutely fantastics - and I'm pretty happy I'm not the one that had to rule them out. :)

But that one from the Exaxis, that one I just knew it would be one of them! Congrats, dude!

This is what I'd love to see a KSP2 KSC look more like
