Awesome. A ton of levels from the old OLDC seem to have vanished, so I'm really hoping to see some cool stuff soon! Maybe I'll even dabbled in the level editor a bit.

I made some pretty successful Mario Maker levels. Is that any indication of success with this level editor? Lol

Get ready for a world of pain.

Not really. Mapping wouldn't be so popular if it were too difficult, but it requires you to think of 3D space in a pretty unintuitive way.

This picture is from an older version of SRB2, but it's a good and simple example:



See that cactus there? Your experiences with normal reality would make you think that the cactus is a single object placed on the ground. That couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, the center stem of the cactus is the ground (raised up and retextured) and the branches are made from 4 floating platforms.

Each floating platform actually consists of two entirely different objects placed on the map. One deals with its shape and xy-coordinates, and the other its vertical size and position. The latter is placed outside the playable area and has no apparent connection with the former at all.

Have fun!

It was meant to replace the rule in the "1-10" rating system, where if you voted on your own division, your lowest score would be dropped, since you cannot vote on your own map. That cannot be replicated well in the current system (dropping a 1-score with 28 entries is way less effective than dropping a 1-score with 3 entries), so this rule was put into place.

Yep, August 31. The regular time limit is 3 months, but just for this period, it'll be 1.5 months instead, since the OLDC was revived smack dab in the middle of the season.

Wuh-hoh! I always saw the "Outdated Official Level Design Contest" boards at the bottom of the board list and wondered how it went down. Now I can observe it first hand. :D

Well, I know what I'm going to d-

Sees the 3MB file limit.

Checks the size of a certain Flat.

It's 4MB.


...Okay, I can't use that, then.

This isn't much, but it's a good start. I'll see how I can play with this aesthetic.

I do have a question, Single Player entries only being allowed one level equates to only one map, right? In other words, level = map, rather than level = zone, right?
