Beyond '46 Rules
« on: April 27, 2013, 08:26:50 AM »
1.  This GB allows anything that can fit between 1946 and 1952 as an extension of WWII.
    This includes all forms of military things.
    If you're unsure, file a proposal with the OOD and it will be taken under advisement.
    We will be more inclusive with subject than with time frame (Beyond '46 is a lot of years!).

2.  Duration is May 1 - June 30 with a 2 week extension available if needed.
    Speak up if you want one when the time comes.

3.  Be creative people!!!  Blow the box wide open and leave it in the rear view!

4.  Physical builds, profiles, stories, and any combination thereof will all be accepted.
    Collaborations are welcomed and encouraged.

5.  Partially constructed builds will be subject to approval prior to their inclusion.
    We want to be inclusive in this issue.

6.  Posting entries in appropriate thread is responsibility of participants.

7.  When in doubt ask! We are jetboy and ysi_maniac.

I like those rules...I wonder why?  ;)

I vote for an extension now!  All those in favor say I please  ;D

They sound good to me man, honestly.  Can't wait for it to start.

Sounds reasonable.
Some other GB threads mention "build threads". Is that required, or is the final result what you primarily want to see?

I have some airplane drawings that I could redesign to fit the timeframe. Something like the turning of Yak-3 into Yak-15, which happened in the real-world. I'm assuming that this will be acceptable.

"build threads" are not needed but encouraged.

It is acceptable. But remember that real-world is absolutely unacceptable. ???

No fear of that. The drawings that I have in mind are already pretty firmly on the imaginary side of things, and changes to fit '46 will make them even more so....

Oh, another question.
Do the WW2 powers have to be aligned as in real-world, or are radical alternative history realignments allowed/encouraged?

We would much prefer it if your imaginations just ran wild :) But any world will be accepted. I'll just check with Carlos but I think he just misunderstood what I said as English isn't his first language. Cheers, Don

At any moment from 1946 to 1952 alignments can change, of course.

If I am reading the rules right,it is a W.W.2 build for if the war went on until 1952?

Are civilian subjects allowed? I've got some airliner ideas that would fit the timeframe.
