LMAO!

ok, I am explaining this at length for people that will find this file in the future without having been here for the past few weeks, skip down quite a bit if your just after my review Smile

A couple of weeks ago we held a poll on the POTD's:-

http://armada2.filefront.com/news/PoTD_Poll_Results;29115

which came out with DONUTS being one (1) singular vote away from being the order everybody wanted the POTD's posted in. Yes, we were wondering ourselves...

Anyway, in retaliation I posted up this POTD:-

http://armada2.filefront.com/potd/67459x#1006869

hilarity ensued. Then at no.11 Falcon posted:-

WANTED

One moddeler to create the "Donut" class confectionery. Ideally this class should be plain when constructed and chocolate covered when assimilated.












Fahres has rose to the challange and produced not only a Donut, but a Donut box as well! As you can see from the pictures this is great! Producing the donuts (even chocolate coloured when assimilated!) was great, and worthy of a ten all by itself but the Donut box is just pure brilliance! The writing on the bottom of the box was really the best thing added to the Donuts in terms of sheer humor Smile

Unfortunately the filefront system won't allow me to mark things up as 11 or 12, so I am having to content myself with 10.

star trek vs Food Wars , 10/10 for creativity
#34 wraith_shadow 2006-09-30 09:29
I really dont understand why HSM_Frontier is getting all *****ed about this. It's just a donut, so what if it's not Star Trek. If it bothers you, for any reason at all, just don't comment on it. Also that is from all the posts that you made about donuts, not just ths one.


Frankly I am not going to download this, becuase I just don't want to. But oviously, creativity and origonality would get a 10 from me. I can't reall rate fun factor, but If I did download it, I would have fun with it.


Also, so what if armada files has donuts and heads? its just a few files that where made for fun. No harm done.
