THEME

The theme for this mapping contest is HOLIDAYS. Despite being in December, this can pertain to any known holiday. You could design a map around a first-person snowball fight, an epic Easter egg hunt, or even a nice RPG about staying home on Yom Kippur. This does not force anyone to stick to a single genre, as long as the theme relates to holidays.



JUDGING

Theme: 10
Does your map follow the theme? It is a pretty easy theme to follow so this should be a free 10 points. Any map getting zero in this category will not be judged any further. Seriously.

Professionalism: 15
How well is the map made? Does it have glitches? Does it flow well? How does the terrain look? Is all the text spell checked? If there is a custom UI, does it look slick or is it disheveled?

Fun: 15
Will I play this map again? Was it too buggy that I couldn’t play it at all? This will be a big factor in deciding the winner, especially with a theme like this.

Originality: 10
Is this original? Am I going to wish I had come up with the idea, first? Did you take one of my ideas in the theme description?

Total: 50 points



RULES
  • The map must be submitted by January 8th, at 11:59:59 PM Pacific time (PST). They can either be posted here, PMed to me, or hosted at the SEN Database.
  • Any map size is allowed.
  • The map must not have been started before the contest.
  • You may submit as many copies of the map as you want. Only the last one received will be judged.
  • No stolen maps.
  • No editing someone else's map. The map must have been made by you, and you alone.
  • Team projects must consist of two people maximum. Prizes will be split amongst both team members.



REWARDS

First Place: 200 minerals, 4 Contest Points
Second Place: 150 minerals, 3 Contest Points
Third Place: 100 minerals, 2 Contest Points

Yes, but I figure most people would have more time to cram in those 3 weeks given that they are on vacation from school/work. This theme is also pretty simple, so you could bust something out in a day that could be fun.

Also, the January contest will last until the end of January, and they will go back to actually being monthly from then on.

Eel - Christmas Edition and Zealot Christmas Defense should be the first two submissions \:awesome\:

Are we allowed to have multiple submissions for these competitions? Will only one get placed?

You can submit multiple (I believe that was always allowed int he past), but only one is placed.

Perhaps. It couldn't be judged or awarded anything. If I have time I might throw something together.

No, I'm working on something, and it's about 40% complete so far.

:payne:

My map is going well. Only missing some polish.
Can I ask the judges to play with a minimum of 4 players to judge the map?



None.

Jan 7 2011, 6:27 pm payne Post #20

:payne:

Map published under the name "Angelic Crown".
As requested, please play with a minimum of 4 players.

For the curious among you, as usual, the map is completely Open Source, so have fun digging through my triggers. \^\^

@Devlin: Forget about the map I've sent you via PM.

EDIT: After reading the rules... it looks like I am not allowed to only publish, so here it is as an attachment.

Mini Moose 2707 -- I wasn't being philosophical, I was talking about D&D rules of alignment :P
[03:55 pm]
Excalibur -- But in my current job which is very difficult but I am growing to like very much, I referenced what I did here as part of what gave me the skillset I needed to do it. And that's really the truth. Without SEN, without custom content, I would not be the person I am or in the position I am. Its so surreal. Also sorry for the tangent I'm usually more quiet these days.
[03:54 pm]
Excalibur -- I love this place. After renting homes for most of my teen years and hopping to a new one every time a lease was up, this has been the only consistency in my life since I was 12. There is nowhere I feel more at home and I would give my life defending it if need be. It seems silly. Its silly enough in text and its worse when you say it out loud. I notice people don't really get what places like this are like to those of us who are so involved. Its hard to say in an interview that experiences I've had modding games and participating in communities about making that content are evidence for why I'm qualified for a position.
[03:52 pm]
Excalibur -- I don't do philosophical debates anymore. Not on the internet not even in real life. It does nothing for anyone. All I know is that I see people with obvious self serving agendas, trying to make things better for themselves. Everything I've done, even when it was the wrong thing, was done with the intent that it might make SEN a better place for everyone involved. I didn't always see clearly and more often than not I wasn't as right as I thought I was. But at the time there was no convincing me of that.

lil-Inferno -- BloodyZombie117
BloodyZombie117 shouted: If they matter to the person, then they matter to something. It doesn't matter to all, just them.
Well, if intentions are relative to the person, then how can one legitimately say that another person's intentions are wrong?
[03:36 pm]
lil-Inferno -- Also that quote is so lawful evil.
[03:36 pm]
lil-Inferno -- R.I.P. Op 5EN :crybaby:
[03:36 pm]
lil-Inferno -- Excalibur
Excalibur shouted: I'm lawful evil eh?
Excalibur
Excalibur shouted: I consider myself more of a chaotic good. Unpredictable and explosive but always with the best of intentions.
You're lawful evil because of your treatment of Op 5EN ;-;
[03:20 pm]
BloodyZombie117 -- If they matter to the person, then they matter to something. It doesn't matter to all, just them.
[03:16 pm]
Mini Moose 2707 -- Do intentions matter? Most people see what they're doing as "good".
