Nova Level Contest - Episode coming soon

Postby Eri7 » Sun Jan 27, 2019 1:29 pm

This was a very successful contest, we received 40 submissions and I thank you for your participation.
The winner of the 2.0 side of the contest is AirShip and the winner of the 38A side of the contest is Inferno_Guy.
An episode of the contest is coming soon!




Spoiler: show

Hello everyone, it's me Eri7. It's quite unexpected for me to host a contest considering it's not an official contest but i asked my discord server if they are interested in one and i got over 20 replies which meant that this contest is happening.
So here are the rules:
2.0/1.3 and 38A levels are allowed however as you can see, they are not compatible with each other which means they will be separated into 2 parts of the finished episode.
Please try to keep your level in english if possible.
Levels should be designed only around mario and luigi.
Multiple levels are ALLOWED, yep.
Penalties won't be added anymore, instead we will fix all of the problems the levels have and if they prove to be way too hard and unenjoyable, we will make sure they become
fun to play as the priority in the end of the day is to have the finished version of the contest be fun to play but we are judging levels based on their original state upon submission.

Teasers/Trailers:




Deadline
The contest will start on February 1, 2019 and all levels must be submitted to me in a PM or through discord by May 15, 2019, at 12:00 PM (Central European Time). They must be in a .zip file with the level and necessary files. No encrypted levels are allowed. By submitting a level you also agree for the level to be part of an SMBX episode/s that will feature all of the levels submitted.

The .zip file must be organized like this:
Inside the .zip there must be a level file and the data folder, and all of the custom sound effects.
All custom sound effects must start with the name of your level with a "-" ("levelname-soundName").
Image
Inside the data folder is where all of your custom GFX, music, NPC codes and everything else must go. Do not place the level data outside the data folder, except for custom sound effects.
Image
You can also provide a txt file where you can give some short description of the level or something.
Also please tell me in which version must your level be played in after submitting it to me.

Reward?
Well, winning the 2.0/1.3 and 38A contest will give you a reward which is... the winner can choose one character, OC or from a game and i will design him as a boss in the finished episode.
Also for everyone who participate in the contest, there will be the optional reward of having their OC or a character they want to appear in the episode as a friendly npc and their lines will be provided by the participants.
NEW REWARD: There is now the optional reward of adding an advertisement sign that will be in different sizes for the participate's project/episode/level/youtube channel/etc!

Judges
- Eri7
- MmmMario
- VanillaDude
- Ludwig_Von Koopa

Definitely going to join, the boss idea is genuinely cool. Also what a generous deadline, in this amount of time I could even make two levels XD

Nice, I'll try to make one in time after I get ungrounded.

Yep and they will be connected as Part 1 and Part 2 of the same story which means people can't ignore one or the other if they want to experience the full story of the episode.

If you don't have decent experience designing levels, how do you expect to judge them?
You have to understand how levels work such as gimmicks, aesthetics, feel to the level and gameplay.
Without having enough experience, you won't be able to properly judge a level.

Can we basically start already?

And more importantly, if you want to include our levels directly or indirectly, can you provide some free themes and gaps to go for?

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

I am up for this, I would ask to judge, but I actually want the reward, so I will opt out in fairness.

I know but you need at least some experience to understand how levels work. I have seen plenty of people judge levels based on their aesthetics rather than their gameplay and that frustrates me.

You can start designing your levels now however you can submit them during the period that i have provided in the topic.
The levels can be anything theme related but as the rules state, they have to be designed only around mario and/or luigi for story purposes.

Going off your skill requirements for judges, I think if you're judging yourself then you should let VanillaDude judge as well...

You definitely need knowledge on good game design to be an effective judge, but your ability to execute it has little, if any, correlation to you ability to judge a level. People who judge based off of aesthetics probably lack knowledge of good game design, which would in turn make them unable to judge (and also design levels).

I rather choose people who have experience being a judge or with experience in level design than someone who doesn't have both.

But it would not be wrong if I do the same test. That is the best way to decide if you think that I don't have enough experience to be a judge.
