Default Official Level Design Contest: July/August

Welcome to the official level design contest topic. Please read the following if you're interested in entering the contest or are just curious as to what the rules and regulation are.

There are two divisions, match and single player. Here are the important parts of each type, for those who would like the specifics:

Match stages are arenas for players to fight. 32 deathmatch starts are necessary to randomize the spawning, but if the stage loads and runs okay, itís an acceptable entry for the match contest. Chaos spawns are a plus. You should also have a Player 1 Start to keep the level from crashing if loaded improperly.

Single Player stages are designed to play in 1 player, and have to include a start and end, and obstacles in the way. Generally, itís a good idea to give the map support for Cooperate and Race mode, but itís not necessary.

The full rules of the contest are as follows:

1. All levels must work correctly in their selected mode. Support for other modes is suggested, but not required. Levels will be judged in either Match or Single Player, depending on the contest youíre entering.
2. The map may not have been publicly released before. In other words, if you have released the level on the Addons section or on the forums or IRC channel, you may not enter it. However, if itís unreleased, that is just as good as being completely new, and is a legal entry.
3. The map has to be your own work. If you base it on another map, that's fine, but a straight port or slight modifications are against the rules.

For the match contest, these additional rules are in place:

1. Custom textures, music, SOCs, and other lumps other than a header and the map itself are not allowed in the Match contest. Match levels are going to be combined into a single WAD file, so in the interest in getting the entries out on time, you have to be creative with what you have.
2. Please place the header both in the WAD and outside the WAD in a separate .txt file. This aids in getting the contest WAD complete and ready for judging as soon as possible.

Submissions are to be sent to my e-mail at mystic@srb2.org. The contest submissions period ends on September 1st, 2005 at 12:00 AM GMT. (August 31st, 2005 at 7:00 PM EST). Any submissions that are late will be possible to get in if you get them to me before the judging starts, but if youíre late, youíre taking a risk that you might have to wait for the next contest, so please get your file in on time.

Judging will consist of voting on the message board. Any member can vote, giving a number for each map from 0 to 10, zero being the most abysmal piece of crap ever, and ten being total perfection. You cannot vote on your own map. To encourage voting, if an entrant votes on everyone elseís map in the contest, the lowest score on all of their entries will be dropped.

Judging will start the instant the files are uploaded, and continue until a week after they were uploaded. The exact time when voting will end will be shown when the files are uploaded. At that point, all votes will be averaged and the map with the highest average in each category will be declared the winner.

The winner of each contest will have his or her map uploaded into the ďLevel of the MonthĒ category of the Addons section. There may be additional prizes added before the submissions period is over.

All entries are welcome, from beginners to advanced level designers. Even if you donít win, this is an excellent way to get feedback on your stage to help improve. Collaborations are allowed, and testing is encouraged strongly.

Good luck to all the participants. Hopefully we can keep up the amazing entries.

If this contest is in July/August, wouldn't that mean the contest ends on
September 1st, instead of July 1st?

I do believe I was pwned by the copy-paste.

XD Ok. THAT was funny.

*cough* anyway...
I might skip this one.
Or not.
Depends on if the urge arises during the submissions.

I've got a single player level planned for this contest, and I'm making it as epic as I can handle with my mad l33t mapping skillz. I hope to surpass Poisoned Paradise act 1, which was a contest winner itself.

That's it. This time, you can count me in. When the Master Wadder, Jake appears, that's a contest that even ol' Hotdog can't miss.

Big words, Tets.

I have several Single Player maps floating around in my mind, perhaps I'll try to squeeze them out. But I probably won't. But I might try this time.

What I'm going to do now is go and make HellFire III 1.09-only and package it in with HF2 so when the time comes you'll automatically have instant content for 1.09 when it comes out, aside from Mystic Realm, of course. And stuff.

What do you guys think?

If I can find enough time to finish HFIII (I've been playing Gems Collection 24/7 nowadays, of course) I'll probably enter it. Don't expect anything, this game is taking plenty of hours away from WadAuthor, but you can always hope =P
