I don't see the point.

Finzy used to irritate me the way he kept saying that SS1 and SS2 mapping is pretty much dead but I'm starting to agree with him

I'd want to release more maps but......well why?

A contest would be nice if there still were some people here who map for SS2. I'm in as long as it isn't a big project.

Default Re: mapping contest

Maybe we could have a horror map contest - everybody tries to design as scary map as possible, or an otherwise spooky level, since Halloween's coming soon and it'd be nice to have some related community content by then.

But it really should be a spooky level, just having zombies in it shouldn't be enough. Think of Haunted Palace with an even darker setting.

It wouldn't matter how big your map is, it'd depend more on how well you captured the feeling and the gameplay etc. I think this kind of a contest could work out pretty well, since most SS2 maps are just all about shooting, and it'd be nice to see what kind of athmospheric horror schemes you could create with SED2 (most maps are quite bright and lacking in sounds/athmosphere; this would be the opposite).

Of course, if Wytas doesn't mind I'd really like to create a horror map sometime.

Default Re: mapping contest

If I were to participate, it'd have to be a DM map

Spooky setting? Hrrm.......maybe if I did a DM map in this kinda setting

actually a small SP map wouldn't be too bad

yeah


Spooky theme and it can either be a small SP map or DM map. You'll be marked on graphics (or atmosphere since it's a spooky theme) and Gameplay (scripting for SP maps, item placement for DM maps)

Of course it depends how long it takes......the whole of October? October's only started so we'd have plenty of time



and then we can do one for christmas too


Judges? Everyone who takes part makes a map and judges other's (obviously not their own)

Excellent idea!!
P.S. And my map wasn't pure horror, it was more like dark fantasy genre Which well fits halloween atmosphere, but of course, we can make maps bloody as hell!!
And there would be a nice variety of maps on S! on All Saints Day, great!

Of course it doesn't matter if it's SP or DM, it can even be made for SS1 imo
And NO, we really don't have much time

Well, we have exactly 3 weeks, that's plenty of time for a great DM map!
Finzy should start a new thread with rules and other info

No, I think we should have more time than that, maybe until the middle or end of November. I'm not sure if I could get a map done in three weeks either (since I'd have only about 2 weeks available for mapping anyway, and I'm not that fast ).

I'll create a new thread with more rules tomorrow or on Monday if I have the time, I'll probably be away for most of tomorrow though.

Glad you guys like it, I hope this'll be a success

It should be a DM map contest. Winner will have the honour of his map being distributed together with the update of DM Pro.

Nevermind, looks like I won't be away afterall due to bad weather.

I think the contest should allow both DM and SP maps, so everyone has a chance to shine. We could still implement some of the contest DM maps to DM Pro if we get permission from the author(s) though.

But yeah, both SP and DM should definitely be allowed. I'll create the contest thread with more rules today.
