Submitting your entry

Entries are submitted on The Sandbox's official forum.

Step 1: Make a GIF of your ASSET

You will need to make a GIF of your ASSET. This can be done using Gyazo, which is a third-party GIF maker. Click here to download it.

Once you have downloaded it, follow the six easy steps below to create a GIF of your ASSET.

  1. Open your ASSET in VoxEdit. And then position it in a way that that you can quickly spin and show off the ASSET quickly.

  2. Choose an animation that you'd like to show off in the GIF and then press Play so that the animation begins playing.

  3. Open the Gyazo application that you downloaded.

  4. Click and drag a box around your ASSET, making sure that you leave enough room to be able to comfortably spin your ASSET around. As soon as you release the mouse button, Gyazo will begin recording, so be ready.

  5. Spin the ASSET around as desired as soon as Gyazo begins recording the selected area.

  6. When you are happy with the GIF, it will upload to Gyazo and show it to you. At the top of the page is a button labelled "Share". Click this and then choose to "Download" as a GIF format. Done.

Here is an example of an ASSET GIF:

Step 2: Submit your entry on the forum

Now that you have your GIF, you can begin to upload your entry to the forum so that the community can vote on it. Here is how to do that:

  1. Go to the competition section of the official forum, which is here: https://forum.sandbox.game/competition. Log into your forum account or create one if you do not have one.

  3. You will see a form allowing you to name your entry, describe it and upload the GIF that you made for it. Fill all of this information in and then press the "Submit Entry" button.
