I guess TwL is sick again. He has been offline for the last two days, I think, or he has not posted anything for a looong while...

Post Re: Contest : A Simple Terrain Area!

Judgement DAY!

Nah, seriously . Anyway here are my scores:

-Wytas-

Complication 5
Pretty simple to learn, and no complex things in SED2.
Creativity 15
No area is the same .
Design 19
Tasty design but weapons and ammo could have been more mixed.
Originality 10
Nice concept but have i not seen this somewhere else? (No bashing intended.)
Length 0
Zero, Nada, Finito because it is a DM map.
Bugs 10
No bugs at all .
Amusement 15 (Not tested in DM yet)
Funny to just walk around and enjoy the eyecandy and funny placed objects . Agh! i have not tested it in multiplayer!
Summary
Lots of eyecandy but would be fun if i actually had someone to play with.

-F1NLAND-Warrior-
Complication
3
Complex enough!
Creativity 20
The most creative thing i have seen in ages!
Design 20
Very well thoughout.
Originality 15
The most unique thing in the forums .
Length 5
Will entertain you your whole life .
Bugs 10
No bugs have i encountered.
Amusement 25
Enough stuff to keep you interested to explore and Very intense battles.
Summary
A fun map wich you MUST play or you will DIE! j/k
Anyway, a very well thoughtout map wich have lots of amusing jokes and intense battles.
Two words: PLAY IT! (In other words, you suck if you do not play this map .)

-GeForceNoob-
Complication 3
Simple, yet effective to learn, BUT in SED2 so is the whole spawning system a big mess to look at!
Creativity 15
Feels like it lacks something...
Design 10
Could USE some more barriers natural or unnatural and 1 player support so you can finish it alone.
Originality 10
A pretty standard "Castle Defence" map.
Length 1
Here is it what the map lacks most! You could (see the summary).
Bugs 10
None what i encountered.
Amusement 10
Did not exactly amuse me just frustrate because i could not kill 3 Mega Super Duper enemies in the end.
Summary
A bit boring to play, but nice for a first Contest attempt.
Things to improve:
More space to defend in.
More weapons!
More eyecandy .
More mountains out of molehills!

Summed up Scores
Wytas 74
F1NLAND-Warrior 98
GeForceNoob 59
Total 74 + 98 + 59 = 231

Hope you take this positively.

Default Re: Contest : A Simple Terrain Area!

Glad to see my Heaven Valley got good votes, and thanks! I hope everyone downloaded the normal V.1.10 version (not the HQ one). I can't improve the lag any further unless I decrease the amount of decoration in it, I think...the shadowmaps really got squished in the latest update.

It would be fun if we could play it online with Insamnity 2...let's try raft/cart racing sometime

It's good that we didn't have to create a "Where's our pal TwL?"-thread

(I use this smilie too much... )

EDIT--- As for croteam models in this contest, I think it's okay. It's a simple terrain contest anyway so unless you create interior areas there will be plenty of CT models around. Unless you create your own models for the enemies or just do some weird stuff (like the signs/custom textures in Heaven Valley). I haven't played the other levels yet but I'll download them today (I already got treasure island)

Default Re: Contest : A Simple Terrain Area!

Ok, now I may judge your maps, too. And FW, please don't take it personally, I try to be as fair as possible. I DONT think that stuttering will affect your maps rating.

First, I have to say, that it isn't bad to use croteam models, but three or four custom models are nice. This aspect doesn't affect the ratings.

HEAVEN VALLEY (F1NLAND WARRIOR)
Graphics: 9/10
--> Nice and pretty stylish. Terrain ground texture a little bit screwish; but fine.
Sound: 9/10
--> Custom sounds are good. Mostly of them fit in perfectly.
Balance: 7/10
--> All in all good enemy balance, but the spawnings have a lot of potential
Mass: 7/10
--> Level is a bit small, but secret areas and interiors are good.
Leveldesign: 8/10
--> Leveldesign is quite good, nearly perfect. Much stuff on such a little level is good.
Complete impression: 40/50
--> Level is organic, nothing that breaks out, which is good.

Overall: 80/100

Personal statement: Nice level you've made, FW! The rating isn't affected by the stuttering on my comp. I guess I need a new comp someday

-------------------------------------
TREASURE ISLAND (WYTAS)
Graphics: 10/10
--> Perfect! Extreme stylish, eyecandy PLUS caribic atmosphere! Great work!
Sound: 8/10
--> Sounds are ok, nothing special but good.
Balance (Spawnmarkers): 9/10
--> Near perfection!
Mass: 9/10
--> Level is compact, not so easy to keep overview, which is good.
Leveldesign: 9/10
--> Leveldesign is close to perfection!
Complete impression: 44/50
--> Level is organic, nothing that breaks out, which is good.

Overall: 89/100

Personal statement: A nice level made by the Author of Haunted Palace! A nice level which is worth playing, too! If you love Deathmatch, you have no choice not to play it! Plus, you don't need to book a trip to the caribic if you play this!

ASSAULT (GEFORCE NOOB)
Graphics: 9/10
--> Custom textures makes level neat
Sound: 9/10
--> Sounds are ok.
Balance: 8/10
--> All in all good enemy balance, but sometimes enemy overkill
Mass: 6/10
--> Level is a small, but it doesn't stop the fun!
Leveldesign: 8/10
--> Leveldesign is quite good, nearly perfect. It is extremely small, which makes you feel being in a real arena!
Complete impression: 37/50
--> Level is organic, nothing that breaks out, which is good.

Overall: 77/100

Personal statement: A nice assault level which is funny to play! Especially in Coop or insamnity!! It is a pure and powerful grenade! Play it and enjoy!

Overall statement of all three levels: You have done a great job, FW, Wytas and GFN! This contest has made three excellent maps!

Wytas, I must say that your map is my personal favourite of this contest. It's unique and really authentic caribic flair is --- undescriptionable! It beats some of croteam's maps, too! You should think of joining croteam as a leveldesigner!

The reason why the levels are so small is that TwL added a size limit to the contest, meaning that all maps should be in 200x200x200 size. It's really hard to build a good map on such a small terrain, at least for me.

Nah, there won't be any improvments in this map, I think....I just don't have time to add/fix stuff in there. Maybe someday when I will have some free time to kill in SEd2 the update of this map will be released.

Wow! This is a word, wytas !
You can let it last as long as you want, if the map reaches the same top-quality as haunted palace or your extremely good treasure island! Both rule! But seriously, you should ask Croteam for them to hire as their new leveldesigner!

P.S. If you need some medieval models, like the neat torture instruments, I can give you my stretching bank and I am working on more

Yeah, i must agree with this one, at last 400x400x400 or 500x500x500 is okay for terrain...Beside, i didn't tryed this contest but i'll catch next one if there is gonna be more...

I hope so for that medieval map! I will also do a medieval map, but first after I've finished my "unfinishable" Strange town part 2 map
It is only 32% progress so I have to keep on

Yeah but it was just a terrain. There wasn't an enemy fight in it either so that's what I meant by nothing special

It is interesting to note that there's also no battles on Wytas's map.
