2013 End of Summer Mapping Contest

Preface: I am hosting a two-week long mapping contest. There will be a decent mineral reward, just in case anyone still collects those things, but perhaps the better reward is having people to actually play your map. I will find out soon how many minerals that will be. Starcraft Brood War mapping is quite rare nowadays but I hope this short contest might inspire a few SEN lurkers and retired mappers to whip up something short and fun. The goal here is to get a few new maps to play, because as we all know, new maps are better than old ones. The deadline is short. No extensions(for reals tho), so hopefully the turnout will equal something greater than 0.

Deadline:
August 26th, 11:59pm, MST.

The Theme:
Anything.
The map could be any style whatsoever. Just make what you would consider to be a better map than everyone else. (Usually, 'fun' is important). Also remember that it will just be judged by me and possibly two more people, based purely on our enjoyment and appreciation of the map.

Rule steal from Oh_Man:

Rules & Information
- This contest finishes at August 26th, midnight, MST.
- At the conclusion of this contest, if your map is incomplete you will be ineligible for the prize. If there are multiple maps of exceptional quality, I may be compelled to reward multiple prizes. I doubt this will happen however... surprise me. There will be no further extensions.
- You do not have to make a new map for this contest, you can pick up where you left off with an incomplete project. However, if your map has had a significant amount of work already put into it, it may not be eligible for the prize.
- No third party programs required to run the map (no mods, no EUD enabler).
- The recipient of the prize will be determined based solely on my subjective opinion.
- Things that will impress: innovation is always good, pushing the editor to its limits like creating a shooter type thing like RUSH, or screen tiles like Fallen Memories. Extended terrain is nice, and systems! Spell systems, item systems, character progression, boss battles dynamic monster spawning, day/night, shuttle/dropship menus, in-depth storylines, puzzles, eud, vhp, dds, etc.
- The recently discovered NeoEUDs by Biophysicist have opened up a plethora of options for mappers. There have yet to be any maps that utilise this brand new feature and yours might well be the first!

Blind Wandering
After having several experiments conducted on you, your vision is all but nonexistent. You've escaped the evil scientists, but now you must blindly wander through this murderous death-trap of a laboratory. The doors to the laboratory, however, will close forever after one person walks through them, so you have to beat the others there.

Make it to the end... if you can.
Specifics
  • Players: 1-6
  • Map Dimensions: 128x128

Looks like a masterpiece. Can't wait to play it.

I will submit this little map I made (not up for judging of course), which looks quite similar to yours.

You should disable unit sounds and keep the unit portrait as a static screen. I think that would help with the atmosphere.

You made that map like three weeks ago, and the rules say that you have to have made the bulk of the map within the duration of the contest.

The turn out was greater than 0 but still disappointing. This should have been until the end of 2013 as a final farewell to SC1 UMS :(



None.

The farewell to SC1 UMS was the 2012 RPG contest. And the 2011 RPG contest. And the 2010 RPG contest.

Leeroy has 12 minerals, so good luck.




Oct 13 2013, 11:52 pm Leeroy_Jenkins Post #17



Devlin agreed to fund this with SEN money, my 12 minerals were hard earned.



None.

Oct 14 2013, 9:45 am Azrael Post #18



How much did DevliN tell you he was going to give? I haven't seen anything regarding an amount mentioned yet :P




Oct 14 2013, 11:31 am Leeroy_Jenkins Post #19



Yeah there was never an amount specified, just some amount of minerals. :D I wish SEN would let me send 1 mineral.



None.

sigsaucy -- just tested it, you were right, so awesome!!!!!!
[01:08 am]
sigsaucy -- thanks! ill give this a try tonight
[11:20 pm]
Ultraviolet -- Well, that's not true for all changes. Some changes will be seen immediately without having to create a new unit (I think changing a unit's weapon updates immediately), but I believe changes to unit properties are one of the ones that require units to be created after the EUD trigger has already run.
[11:16 pm]
Ultraviolet -- I believe you need to recreate Zeratul after the map has loaded because EUD edits don't take effect until after the first trigger cycle
[2018-8-16. : 3:30 am]
sigsaucy -- other things like setting detection/weapons are working though
[2018-8-16. : 3:28 am]
sigsaucy -- wait i lied, unchecked permanent cloaking and zeratul still not detectable
