I just had a crazy idea for a contest (in theory.) What about a movie competition using The Movies just like we used to do back in TMO. That is, no external editing, and maybe just using the assets supplied by Lionhead?
As I said, it might seem crazy to go that retro, but I know for a lot of us (myself included) that's where it all started, and that's what got me interested in this hobby (which I still haven't given up on entirely, btw.)
Too crazy to consider? I know it's suuuuper quiet these days, so I doubt I'll see much interest. But it can't hurt to talk about it.
Of course, I don't even have The Movies on this PC, but I think I have it installed on at least one of my older PCs in the back room. So yeah, I might even be able to do something.
