Lightbulb Sean's Crappy Map Making Contest

Contrary to popular opinion, the more contests at the same time, the better! A map making contest from Sean (of no fame, really)! Everyone is allowed to submit, there will be ONE prize, and all you get out of this contest is satisfaction! So, get your map-making muscles flexed and start building! Here are the rules:

1. Your entry must be in by November 6th (that's right, make it fast!)
2. Your entry must be symmetrical.
3. It must be playable in CTF.
4. There must be 2 power-ups that deal 2 damage, no more, no less (other power-ups that still do 1 damage or no damage at all are allowed)
5. Seekers are not allowed!
6. There must not be a password in the level.
7. Rules 8 and 9 do not apply.
8. No blaster!
9. No MP Start!
10. When you post, brag about yourself (semi-serious - I'd like to know about your previous experience)

That's it, and this pretty much makes for a crappy map. So make the best crappy map you can, and win A 3D RENDERING OF A LANDSCAPE OF YOUR CHOICE! (sounds attractive? You bet it is! My previous experience: http://h3llb0yn3cr0.deviantart.com)

And does the PU limit mean PU's on one side of the level or the whole level?

I didn't say about symmetrical, I said about PU limit. Can there be four PU's on the whole level, with two on each base's side?

Number and location of PU's is up to you (except for those stated in rule 4, ofc :-D) There isn't a limit to the location of the PU's, so crack away!

If I still don't get the jist of your message, feel free to curse me :-P

What he's asking is wether rule 4 says two PUs for the whole level, or two PUs per symmetrical side.

Jake: No seekers at all. Sucks, right?
Ob: Two "2 damage PU's" for the whole level. Others are of choice.

someone should enter this contest with a test level

I'll see if I can finish up that one level I wanted to make for SJ's contest but didn't.

I was considering a team test level for this. Thank you for ruining it.

...but, I mean, TEST LEVEL?

...I see how that could work then. It would be a race of sorts.

This contest seems to amount to "make a normal CTF level with these somewhat arbitrary rules, and win nothing." This would be more interesting if you were asking for something unique, or were offering some kind of award (even a small one). And awards can take a lot of forms - for example, a recent contest guaranteed that the winners would have their map in a prominent tournament, and minmay's somewhat odd contest seems to be rewarding a banner image or something.

I mean, I happen to have a CTF level in the works which almost fits under these rules, and while I could modify for these purposes, you're not exactly giving me a reason to do that.

Do all layers have to be symmetrical? Or just the level? Let me know and I'll consider joining. Also extend the deadline please. One month is not enough time...

Just the sprite layer. And about the time... My best map (9 rating) was done in 2 weeks without a clear image of what I want to do. Or maybe you don't work like that...

Does the line of symmetry necessarily have to go threw the CENTER of the level?

Or can it be offset to the left a tad, as long as the line is still symmetrical? I don't feel like re-aligning this level, sorry =/

I'm not entirely sure if this is a legal entry, because it's a modification to a level I previously created, but if you'll accept it, here it is.

Edit:
I just remembered that bragging is encouraged in this contest. This level is probably one of the coolest I've managed to create. It is one of the most unique forms of CTF I've ever seen, and from a technical aspect, the level is surprisingly complicated for such straight forward gameplay. I personally really want to duel on it for JDC next season at least once.

I don't see anything in the rules that say the power ups need to be useful.

It's your contest. You decide if it's legal, or if I take a penalty during the judging or something. I figured it might not count anyway because I didn't create is specifically for this contest.

To be honest, I threw my two powerups in randomly. You weren't specific and if you're going to disqualify us for that, that would be to your own dismay. Surely we followed all rules and guidelines.

As much as I'd love to make a better entry, I'm already trying to work on something for the Windmeister contest, and school is keeping me relatively busy, so I don't know if I can even finish that. So unfortunately, this rule stretching level is the best I can offer.

Sorry, I was unsure of what WIP meant:



It's a team test level. I just need testers at this point. Unfortunately, I'm not on when most people are... =/
