Post 2016: Treasure World - the mapping competition

http://www.serioussite.ru/IMG/Maps2016_simplelogo.png

Serioussite.ru team is pleased to invite you to participate in our new mapping contest! This time, as you might guess from the title, the main theme of the entry will be a treasure hunting. Whether it's tombs robbing, dungeons exploring or pirate treasures - you can choose any possible place for your map you want, even your own stomach!
The rules remain the same as in the previous contest "Space Odyssey", with a few slight modifications.


Rules and recommendations:

* The main player's goal must be a direct search for the treasure.
* Messages, cutscenes and similar stuff for revealing the plot are welcome.
* There are no restrictions on what kind of subject this treasure might be, except for one thing: the object must represent a considerable value to the character.
* There are no restrictions for locations.
* The map should take more than 20 minutes to play through on Normal difficulty;
* No third-party DLLs; all other custom resources allowed;
* The map must be packed into a .gro archive and run correctly on a clean installation of Serious Sam.

The competition is open to mapping teams of one to three people. However, in case of victory there'll be only one prize issued for the whole team. Participants who do not submit a map in time will receive a "medal of shame" (only on Serious Site). Any contest member who submit a map, but don't make it to the top three winners, will receive a "participation medal" (only on Serious Site).


You can build your map for either one of these games:

* Serious Sam Classic: The First Encounter
* Serious Sam Classic: The Second Encounter


Prizes:

- BioShock
- BioShock 2
- Blackguards
- Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box
- Crysis 2 Maximum Edition
- Dead Space
- Dead Space 3 (Origin key)
- Saints Row 2
- Q.U.B.E: Director's Cut
- Serious Sam: Complete Pack (CIS)
- A bunch of keys with trading cards

This list will be supplemented. Thanks to Louva-Deus for gifts.


You can sign up until 15th of July inclusive. To apply for the competition, just post a reply to this thread. The deadline for finishing your map is 23:59:59 (Moscow time), 1st of October. 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.

Good luck!

so, your not doing your contest then?



Also I'm not really sure I want to go into this, I mean, Russian maps tend to blow all others out the water, plus i know nothing of porting models into Serious Sam.

EDIT: I hope we can get some more Seriously members, because the moment I read "САНЕК" I sweated in fear :O

I'm still considering it, I'm even sure what I'm gonna go for in terms of theme.
Seriously has another contest coming up soon, that's another reason why.

And since your here:
No offense Cofein, but your Gnaarship level kinda sucked. (I played all the levels in the 2014 competition and ranked them, yours was the second lowest)
Maybe I didn't like the gameplay much, I mean I'm still glad you made it but still, it was kinda lacking. (I fell for the ventilation trap, that I'll admit was quite clever XD)

You can, just for fun. I joined, but my map will not be graded and I don't get the prize.

That's sweet! I wish people here were more into it for the fun of it.

I've still yet to come up with an idea, because I'm not going into this empty thought.
The only thing I've though of is a Lara Croft Tombraider thing, but that's getting old by this point.

I think the main problem here is that the competition is restricted to SS1 Classic, when most mappers of this community map for SSHD and SS3.

Sounds interesting Does the original Serious Sam count (e.g. 1.07 patch)? Because I have tons of custom stuff coded into a mod I am designing so far.. Or is it only Serious Sam Classic?

Sure.. I guess I will give it a try. No prize for me, obviously. No promise that I will actually finish.

Somehow this seems like a bad idea...
