The medium-large battle map contest!

I regret not starting this contest earlier (I should've announced it as soon as the CaB winners were) but here it goes anyway.

1st prize: 30
2nd prize: 15


If you don't/cant get a paypal account, I can try to reward you another way, like a steam game/s or gift card.

Rules and guidelines
  • You can submit maps you have been working on lately, as long it's not an already uploaded map.
  • It should ideally accomodate 8-16 players.
  • Multiple entries are allowed.
  • Original layouts only
  • All characters should be able to get around the map without much struggle.
  • Collabs are allowed. The prize money would be shared between the winners - who gets more depends on how much they worked on it.
  • Plus-only features are allowed. If I get any exceptional scripted level, I may have separate scripted and non-scripted categories.
  • The deadline is the 31st of December 2016. NO DELAYS, I'd like some JCS award candidates!

This might be my final contest, but we'll see...

And no I havent forgotten about making the winning entry for the CaB contest.

Also as usual, if I don't get any quality entries - no one wins.

It means no editing existing layouts or taking bits out of them.

I like JJ2 contests. Not because I'm participating but because people show a little more dedication to this game. Thank you, Trey.

If the deadline is 31st of December, I might release something. I hope my parents will get Internet here soon, since I have to upload it somehow...

Though I still don't understand what 'medium-large' is supposed to be. We could all end up making too large levels because we fear they might be too small, and vice versa.

Maybe announce this on jj.net as well? Lots of other people post there, so at least maybe one of them will participate.

Also, Primpy, why not participate?

Here's a few examples of medium-large levels; Zes, Forsaken hot springs, Castle bunnies for life.

Or in other words, ideally accomodating 8-16 players. It's less about the size and more about the amount of available powerups and ammo (and how frequently they respawn).

Alright. After day 1, I'd say my entry is about 18% done. Just to let everyone know that "might participate" did not mean "I won't participate, I just wanted to post here".

EDIT: I need to ask, is water not recomended? My level won't be half flooded, but it will have several routes at the bottom.

So, umm... How are your entries going? Mine is deffinetly the best level I made so far (which isn't really hard to achieve), though I can't post the screenshots, and I really hope I'll be able to post the level itself once it's done. All I can say is that it uses one of the original JJ2 sets and its music.

I really wanna know how many of you are actually participating...

I'm still in. Progress is slow but I'm sure I'll have a level finished by the deadline.

Just a reminder - there's roughly 1 month until the deadline. Time marches on!

Well, my level is nearly finished. Just one more area and a few platforms here and there need to be made. Then there's the weapon placement and eyecandy stuff. I don't promise any outstanding level design or eyecandy, but I assure you that I used the level's tileset in a way nobody's ever used before.

It will be finished by the deadline. I hope I'll find a way to upload it, since I have no Internet because it isn't a priority next to so much processes I'm going through. My sixth sense tells me that PJ is going to win, anyway.

10 days left! Time is marching on, so you should be releasing your map/s sooner rather than later.

After the deadline is over, I will need a bunch of playtesters to get an idea of the gameplay in practice. Actual playing, not just wandering around the level. No date announced just yet. Will be looking to at least get 8, and 16 at most.

I somehow forgot about this contest, lol. Been too busy this month and not much online. I guess the deadline has been hit, or perhaps not, as it doesn't say at or past December 31.

I have a level that's done for the most part. It needs some more eyecandy and weapon placement. I don't think it matches up too well against the current 2 entries, but I'll try and finish it before the year is over since I have some time today.

If not, I'll release it later anyway because the more levels, the better.

How about your entry Jelly Jam? Did you manage to complete it?

Good luck to the contestants!

Happy new year everyone!

I worked on and considered releasing my level too, but after playing it I felt like there were some balancing and flow issues to work out. That, and the fact there are 4 entries now, enforced my decision to release it later outside of the contest.

Thanks Trey for hosting this contest, as it motivated me to attempt another MP level, trying to grasp what truly makes them fun.

Good luck to Loon, FS, SE, and Jelly!

If you failed to get your entry on time, there's the upcoming Anniversary Bash 19! Chances are, all entrants here will be featured there.

Quasi-late submission? (It was technically December 31st when I finished, and it's still December 31st somewhere.)

Not a big deal if it's too late to be accepted.

Great diversity with all of the entries: There's a swamp, (a city?), abstract dream worlds, and a distant future.

I like every one of them in some way.
