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.

I'll see what I can do for this one; hopefully I won't push it off until I don't have time to do everything I wanted like last time

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

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.

Just enter... seriously, it's not like anyone will send a complaint to the Office of SEN Contests' Submissions. >_>

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.

As long as this [ http://www.staredit.net/topic/13072/ ] is not solved, I can't finish my submission.

: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.

jjf28 -- uhh, anyone have a screenpic with my shouting? I wanna rip my old color...
[12:06 pm]
jjf28 -- keeping busy i trust?
[12:06 pm]
Devourer -- I will stick to Jack's alternate design. Or at least, I will test that one
[11:54 am]
Jack -- Alternate design https://imgur.com/HjGmoIc
[11:49 am]
Devourer -- this would take some minutes and I have to leave any second; I will upload them as soon as possible for your feedback.
[11:49 am]
Devourer -- I guess that would be cool. The staff has two buttons like these already, so making the quote fit the style would be cool
[11:48 am]
Jack -- And I don't suppose you could test those quote icons so I can see what they would look like as they are
[11:48 am]
Jack -- Do you want that kind of "button" look as the background?
