Default 2014: A Space Odyssey - the mapping competition

http://i.imgur.com/Ly98kkf.png
Serioussite.ru announces the new competition for map makers all over the globe! Such contests were held annually in the russian community, but this year we're spreading it over to seriouszone, to see if you can surpass us. The main theme for the competition is, as you may have noticed, the space. Here are the rules:
  • The action should take place either directly in space, or aboard some starship/asteroid, but not on a planet;
  • No auxiliary DLLs or patches, all other custom resources allowed;
  • The map should be thoroughly packed into a single GRO.
  • The map should take more than 15 minutes to play through on Normal difficulty;
  • The development process should be completely secret: no screenshots, no information published about your map until the contest is over;
  • Maps that were in development before the contest started are not accepted;

You can build your map for either one of these games:
  • Serious Sam Classic: TSE
  • Serious Sam HD: TSE
  • Serious Sam 3: BFE
  • Serious Sam Revolution

Prizes:
  • Serious Sam Complete Pack
  • XCOM: Enemy Unknown + The Bureau: XCOM Declassified
  • Sanctum 2

1st place: Chooses any of the three games/packs listed above and gets additional 1000 RUB*
2nd place: Chooses any of the remaining two and also gets 500 RUB
3rd place: Gets the remaining game

*- in case of victory, the said amount of money and games will be added to your Steam account

List of contestants from (as of 27.10.2014):
  • SeriousAlexej - Serious Sam Classic: TSE
  • art-serious - Serious Sam Classic: TSE
  • SeriousSasha - Serious Sam Classic: TSE

  • Psych - Serious Sam Classic: TSE
  • Harrison - Serious Sam HD: TSE
  • Cofein - Serious Sam Classic: TSE
  • Redfield - Serious Sam Classic: TSE

To apply for the competition, just post a reply to this thread specifying the game you are going to map for. The deadline for this application is 30th, October. The deadline for finishing your map is 23:59:59 (Moscow time), 14th of December. When your map is ready, send it to nckgriva208@gmail.com. After the contest is over, the jury will decide on the winners. Here is a thread dedicated to the contest on serioussite forum: http://www.serioussite.ru/forum/33-3354-1

Rakanishu, okay, I added you to the list. On the serioussite forum you wrote that you will be doing a map for Classic TSE, so I specified it here as well.

Really cool idea!

I'd love to join in, and if it was just about creating map itself, that would be great, but i'm not really into gameplay itself, and don't really have time to learn it, so i'll have to skip.

But i'm really looking foward to see what you guys come up with!

To sweeten the deal... I will give an extra game from the prize pool to any Seriously! community mappers who make it in the top 3! To qualify you have to identify yourself as a S! mapper.

Default Re: 2014: A Space Odyssey - the mapping competition

I have a couple questions:
- The deadline to apply is oct 30th, but the actual deadline for the map itself is dec 14th correct?
-our map needs to be able to fit into a single .gro?
-Does it have to be a Campaign level? If so, is there a maximum time?

Lastly, If for example you were making a map for SS3 ,are we allowed to use additions like the Ultimate resource pack to enhance the gameplay aspects?

Actually, the minimal time is 15 minutes, which means your map should take no less than 15 minutes to go from start to finish.

Mischievous, I'll add you to the list now.

Seems interesting, I should try to make something too I'm guessing with SS:Rev to be able to use gravity and the additional enemies. I wonder if I should enter too, I'm quite busy, really. Then again, mapping for such an old game is very fast, even if I only spend one hour a week, I should be able to finish it by dec 14... Ok, I'm entering! LD, I'm an S! only member, I have no registration on ss.ru.

Your map should be contained in a single GRO, that can be played on vanilla SS3. You should include all additional resources into that GRO.

Does it have to be a single wld? What about splitting it into a few wlds, like a short campaign, or a hub level with sublevels, or something?

It must be a single GRO, you can put as many WLDs in it as you wish, just don't miss the deadline.

If this is true, count me out. As busy as I am irl, a month and a half will not be enough to finish something as epic as I have in mind

Yeah, Finzy. Drop all your previous projects and works and pick up a new one. Who cares if you need a whole new concept that needs to be built from the ground up? I mean it's not like the thing you're working on is important to you personally or anything.

Geeeez.

Or lets go a little farther and admit, those maps will suck anyway, you know it, might as well start new one.
