Trailer

Discord Server

Welcome one of the first World Map Design Contests ever!
Runtime: December 7th, 2020 - January 3rd, 2021 EST

What is this contest about?
As the name already says, this contest is all about world map design! This means that you can submit a world map to be judged!

How to submit?
Just send me a download link in a private message on the forums or Discord! Use discord embedded files or a hosting site like MediaFire or Dropbox.

Discord Tag: DerEric #7981


RULES
[01]
This is a world map contest. You are allowed to submit custom world maps inside levels, but no HUB levels.
[02]
You may submit up to three world maps. Collaboration is allowed.
[03]
Your world map is supposed to have 10-30 level points, not including warps.
[04]
The total amount of warp points is not allowed to exceed the total amount of level points.
[05]
In order to decrease the total file size, please make sure to remove unused assets. Music files should not be longer than 5 minutes. It is advised to use looped music files.
[0]
Unless you're making a custom world map in the level editor, do not use level files (.lvl/.lvlx). If you include warps, use world map warps instead.
[07]
Any major version of SMBX is allowed (legacy SMBX, 38A, SMBX2, SMR).
[08]
No encrypted levels/world maps.
[09]
You may not disable cheats for your map.
[10]
You may not submit a world map that wasn't made by you. Also, already released maps are not allowed.
How to submit: show
Your folder is supposed to include the following files/folders:
-Your map's folder (including all graphic/music files)
-A readme file (.txt) including:
-Your prefered username
-Your World's name
-The version your world is meant to be played on (legacy/1.4.4/1.4.5/X2/SMR)
-Credits for custom graphics and custom music


JUDGING
-The judge is:
DerEric
-Judging relies only on aesthetics. Gameplay Flaws (too long paths, broken warps, etc.) will result in a point deduction.
-Judges will use the cheat code imtiredofallthiswalking in order to judge the world map.
-Please keep in mind that a large world map doesn't get more points just for being a large world map.


REWARDS
You will get a special badge that you can put in your signature for participating. First, second and third place will receive a personalized badge (gold/silver/bronze) with their name on it.


RELEASE
All submissions will be put into a .zip file and be released after the results have been published.

Good luck!

Usually this is my kind of deal. I will be in as I usually host these and are not usually allowed to enter. I have a complaint though. Why is there a maximum of 30 levels on the map?

If I were to guess, it's the theme of the contest (small and many submissions, rather than large and few). And to limit people from exploiting the absence of a limit.
Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.

All my assets from packs and episodes are free to use for non-Novaverse levels and projects, as long as proper credit is given.

Sounds interesting. I might participate, but we'll see
I believe and I accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. If you do, put this in your signature.

If it makes sense then it must make dollars

RULES UPDATE! WMDC 2020

Postby DerEric » Sat Dec 05, 2020 4:50 am

There have been two additions to the rules:
-There may not be more warp points than levels in your map. (Thanks to Enjl for pointing this out to me)
-Obvious rule: You may not submit world maps not made by you or already released world maps.

I tried to encourage people not to create a way too large world map (or a 2 level one, for that matter) so they can focus on quality instead.

World Map Design Contest - Submission Period has started!

Postby DerEric » Sun Dec 06, 2020 6:11 pm

With the submission period starting, I decided to release a short trailer for the contest.

Also, the discord server initially intended for judging only has been made into a server for general discussion regarding the contest, including a channel for submissions. If you want, feel free to join the server at any time. Join here!
Joining is not required in any way, it is completely optional.

Aside from that, I'm still looking for one or two additional judges!

Please don't use extended music tracks.

I would have entered if I had a tileset. If there are more than one submission, I can judge though.

I see. Maybe you should avoid throwing around Deadlines, until
you have a few more. It sounds a little, well.. desperate.

Just a friendly hint :). Oh Yeah, almost forgot, I be willing to
become a judge for the Contest, if theres still space, if not,
it's also fine.

Well, a contest needs a deadline, an infinite contest just doesn't make any sense.

Well, a contest needs a deadline, an infinite contest just doesn't make any sense.
Just a suggestion: perhaps make it last 2-3 months? Maybe shorter (or longer), depending on the amount of contestants?

Also, I'm interested in this contest, but I don't know if I can finish it in time...
Regardless, I'll try my best.

rule 10 states world maps that have already been released cannot be used - this i understand - but im just wondering - theres no rule stating you cannot submit maps you have worked on in the past. are you allowed to do that?

Yes, you are. Not that it matters, though.
