Exclamation Contest : Pass the map

Ok here's a new contest.

The rules are simple:
Someone posts the map and the other person edits it. Then he posts the map again and lists all features he added (f.e., "New temple at the bottom of the canyon, enemy battle in it, lighting in the first cave" etc). All those features added by people will be listed in the first post together with the names of mappers who added them, so that when the level is finished, the judjes can give a vote from 0 to 10 to the mappers for their efforts. The mapper whose work recieves the biggest total score wins the contest.

A level to start from:
http://files.filefront.com/GreenPlan.../fileinfo.html
Any edition technique allowed. Editing others' stuff allowed.

Good luck!

Any specifics on when this will end? I think it sounds like fun, and I will be getting in on this early since I didn't give myself enough time to finish my room for the last contest. I've got a great idea for some things to contribute and will be starting immediately. Here's hoping there are a decent number of submissions this time around.

Members of contest are editing a map one by one. However, while another contestant is working on the map, you may create some prephabs.

The maximum time the contestant can hold a map is 5 days. The contest ends when all contestants say they're ready, but not later than 22 of May.

You may be a judje Jet.

SLAwww, You should assign map to someone, after he/she's done, you must assign it to another person. Because if everyone takes the same map at a time, this won't be "Pass the Map"...

That sounds good, enough lazy for me. I can join the contest, or, if I can't do so for some reason (or I quit), I will be a judge again.

Default Re: Contest : Pass the map

What about something like this.

Pass the map!

1. All stuffs must be done in SED2.

2. Architecture must be created that can be easily passed to next mapper.

For example if you creating inside architecture you must create doors or tunnels so that next mapper can easily attach his parts of map. If you want to create terrain or some other outside stuffs be careful to not complicated your map. Try to use terrain inside some walls or other parts like hills and at the end of your canyon put door entrance to temple or to the other canyon.

3. Every map part must have one fight and one new weapon to pick up.

For example in first part of map you can put single shootgun entity. In second part of map other mapper will put double shootgun and so on. You can't skip to stronger weapon for example from single shootgun to cannon . Fights don't haves limits in number of enemies and what monsters you will choose. But have in mind that fights must be fair with lots of health and ammo.

4. Every map part must have one secret and one puzzle or mission.


Puzzle must not be to hard. You can use simple puzzles like finding a key or buttons to open door or even some physics puzzles. That puzzle can be mission. Every mission must have netricsa message with name of mission.
Secret can be anything you want except weapon. It would be good to create some funny secret

I can continue if someone find this interasting

I ment that you can correct some bugs, change lighting a bit, but not delete anything. You can't, for example, change a roof of the house to the absolutely different one or retexturize it in your way (but you can fix errors with UV-mapping in others' models).

Quote:
mind if i start?
Ok you can start now. Your time estimates on 12th February. Download that level from the first post and start editing it.

Quote:
1. All stuffs must be done in SED2.
Disagree. You can use any prog to make architecture, but the final result should be in SED2.

Quote:
2. Architecture must be created that can be easily passed to next mapper.
Sure. No finalization please.

Quote:
3. Every map part must have one fight and one new weapon to pick up.
Disagree. Anyone can add anything he wants. In the end the judjes will give people a score based on their efforts. In that way, you can just add one small house or a bench, but you know you wouldn't get a high score for it.

Quote:
4. Every map part must have one secret and one puzzle or mission.
Disagree (watch previous paragraph).

Quote:

Of course! The more you add the better it would be. I'm gonna make a custom music.


Maybe this thing doesn't seem like a contest at all... Well, in this case you can say that taking part is much more important than winning.

Still the same. Who knows, someone can change the lighting to black in color and make everything dark.

And if you edit someone's work the result may be worser than before.

You can't make major changes, just change falloff only a bit or change color of the light from light-red to normal red for example. But you can fix others' bugs.
