I'm on the fence of deciding to be a judge or not.
But I would have liked to see the concept first.
If I wouldn't have liked the concept I would have been a judge.

Burnvictim42
08-31-2009, 08:36 AM
Okay, i actually have some ideas... but before i start building anything, do demons fall under the category of monsters? I wasn't sure, seemed a little vague to me, so i thought i'd ask :p

Zwollie
08-31-2009, 10:14 AM
Zwollie's speciality? When did I say that? :)

I just want to make a monster in LBP, never done it before.
I'm entering this one, a 19-day deadline....I should be able to make it this time.

Matt Daaaamon!! :)

The funniest part of the movie, especially when you look at the behind the scenes footage and find out why they gave him that voice.
It seems they were planning on giving him a normal voice until they actually saw the puppet with that idiotic face the sculptors gave him.

And back on topic: I'm most interested to see what the folks without the monster pack achieve with this as I don't think you need it to make a great character.

I tend to use that from time to time, especially if his name comes up on TV or just a quite time to break the silence. April always gets a chuckle out of that.

Yeah.. I think the monster pack could be handy, but not sure I will use any of it or not. I am hoping I have the time to make something. I sketched something out yesterday that was pretty interesting. Just not sure I like it enough to create.

I published one a couple of hours ago under my other account ( mistervista2 ).

It's called EYE POD and you have to get it to follow you to make it 'dock' and start up the 'EYE TOONS'.

Not a serious contender, I was just messing about in create mode and made this quick for a bit of fun.

Sorry no pics yet.

Meet Chucky the Caustic Caterpillar

Chucky is a mutant Caterpillar with a taste for destruction. Problem is he moves so slowly that his monstrous rampage is confined to his favorite tree.

Make sure you check him out in game as all parts move as well as quite a bit more detail that the pics won't show. :p ;)

Introducing Count Stefan Fly!

Third cousin twice removed of Count Vlad the Impaler of Transylvania.

Hired by the Beeb as a voice over artiste Stefan's agreement was terminated as a result of an unfortunate misdemeanor when he landed feet first in the middle of the directors New York Deli sandwich whilst recording an episode of Walk On The Wild Side.

The Count now lurks in the shadows of a dark and malevolent forest waiting for a tender morsel to wander into his lair.

@IceMaiden

I have just checked out Count Stefan in his lair and heís fantastic! I loved how authentic you managed to make the vibration of his wings. Also, I am once again amazed at the amount of detail and effort you have put into the background. It looks just like a proper level. My favourite bit was the bridge. It could have come straight from the Yorkshire Dales!

Thereís just one thing lacking, though ;). What it needs to make it a haunt of true evil is a rusting Dolly Tub lying in a dark corner where someone has fly-tipped it, half-submerged in mud, dented, door hanging open, but still with an evil glint in its chrome fittings, waiting for some small innocent creature to take shelter in its drum! Makes me shiver just thinking about it! :eek:

09-15-2009, 03:15 PM
Mr Stefan Fly is flyming brilliant, with his rotting apple and bruised banana, which are both handy little steps for getting up onto his back for excellent photo opportunities!
The detail that Icey puts into her character levels is just amazing, in both the character and the scenery. The bridge, the water, the ivy, ferns and grass and everything else is just epic. The scenery really does add that extra something to the character.

Thats hilarious shropshirelass, you are funny!!! Love the fly tipped bit lol!!

IceMaiden
09-15-2009, 08:39 PM
@ shropshirelass, that made me laugh, a lot!!!! Dolly has been known to wait for some poor innocent creature to happen into her drum!!! Thanks for your kind words.

I present: The Spoiler: Monster of Mold. A back of the refrigerator monster who's sole purpose is to wait until the lights go out then make as much food go bad as possible. Your favorite kind of cake, those fantastic leftovers from that nice restaraunt, the pastry you spent days putting together...... ALL ARE POTENTIALLY IN DANGER! Turn out the lights for an even spookier view of this slimy monster.

Special thanks to Squilrin who inspired the material usage and gave it a name. :)

The eggs are a big huge.....;) Cheese? um, I don't think so but then again there are some funky cheeses out there. If MM's next update is called the spoiler I'll agree he's made of cheese. Until then - I'm going with slime and mold as my theory of what he's made up of. :)

Well my scores are in. :)

Since they were based on CREATIVITY, I did have to give out one 10/10 score, but given some of the other entries, they're definitely not a shoe in - there are 2 or 3 others that I think also have a pretty good shot at #1 with 3 other judges chiming in.

* However, I did not get a chance to see "Eye Pod" by mistervista. I simply could not find it online. Could someone help me with this so that I could give Eye Pod a score?

Jagrevi

I am really for the separation of the roles of judge and jury here. ;)

So if it comes down to it, I think finding a quick volunteer judge might be less biased ... you already know how disseperate the current "scores" are, which I don't think the judges should be privy to when they create their scores.

It's why people "1-star" 5-star rated levels when they really think it deserves a 4.

Awesome work everyone, I think we are all winners. :)

so what happens now? don't tell me all these contests were a waste of time if the creator of the level isn't going to make the level with these characters

Jagrevi
10-05-2009, 06:14 AM
Hopefully Crazy Mario doesn't fail to live up to his promise. If he does though, I'm sure these characters can still find a home - alot of them are far too good not to use somewhere.

Heck I'd volunteer to adopt some of them in the story of my current project if I hadn't long passed the point where I could add new relevant characters. Perhaps the LBPC: The Game project?

Morgana25
10-05-2009, 06:19 AM
I'd like to see them used. Even if CrazyMario doesn't want to or can't what's to keep the creators from making their own level.

I had fun making my characters and playing everyone elses. The creativity around here is crazy good so I don't think any of this was a "waste" of time. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it's not about the level for me anymore. :)

Burnvictim42
10-05-2009, 06:21 AM
Agreed. I had fun making them, 'nuff said. :p Also, just because you don't have a use now doesn't mean you won't later. I've been using a few techniques and various parts of my characters for new designs for quite a while ;p

shropshirelass
10-05-2009, 10:17 AM
It may not be a big consolation :p but donít forget that the contest has also given those watching from the sidelines, like me, a great deal of pleasure and countless lolz!

Itís also been a fantastic showcase for the talent you guys have! Itís been great to see creators doing something different from their trademark style, too Ė it really demonstrated peopleís range and versatility (and sense of humour!). In other cases, where I hadn't seen people's work before, it has made me want to go and check out full levels they've made.

So, as jwwphotos said, you're all winners really - congratulations everyone!

Oh, and I really hope some of the creators do go on to make proper levels with their characters (in some cases I feel as if we've been given just a taster of what could be a great story) and, who knows with online create maybe some of the characters could appear together!

jwwphotos
10-05-2009, 01:03 PM
Great points everyone!

Yup, I had a blast so it really doesn't matter to me. As I said before, I am very thankful for crazymario putting these on as I was always a bit timid to want to make characters. I always felt more comfy making scenery, set pieces, vehicles, and contraptions. Having only done one character ever before, I took on the contest as a way to discover what I could do and was really excited at the results. In fact my entries for the first two rounds had me laughing hysterically the entire time I was making them!!

So again... thanks to crazymario as it was a wonderful competition with some great and talented friends. Congrats to everyone!

Not to worry.. I will be finding some good uses for my mine. Just might be awhile.

Hey, if KoRnDawwg voted, 2 should be enough to choose a winner.

Not ideal, but at least it's still based on "accumulated score" rather than merely being picked.

KernelM, I'd hold off on making a level with these until

1) We hear from Crazy Mario <- or he's clearly MIA indefinitely

2) We know the Winner of round 2 (which if we don't hear from CM, could easily be found out just by KoRnDawwg and me sending our scores to a third party, assuming SilverLeon did not vote).

well 3 volunteers and 1 official judge who voted....so is that enough to end this once and for all or what?

to be honest i think these judges should make a decision....then wait a bit to see if CM shows up...if not judges can announce a winner and do whatever needs to be done with all these characters

Yup... that would do it for me.

The only issue I have is if CM doesn't show up there is nothing for the judges to decide on what to do with the characters. I think at this point it is up to the creators to use them as they please. If you read his last few posts, CM's lack of interest tells me it is doubtful he will do anything with the winners from the prior rounds as well.

I am hoping we can have a new contest that distributes XP to the winners like we do with other contests. I have really enjoyed the competition and camaraderie of all the creators during these rounds. Getting to see all the amazing characters that have come out of this contest has been wonderful fun and would hate to see it end this way.

As the only official judge who voted, I'll be happy to either accept the volunteer's scores and add them all up, or forward my scores to an impartial volunteer.

I already sent my scores to CM long ago, so I can guarantee you they are already set in stone, so I can do the tallying if needed.

I don't think anyone would have a problem with you collecting the scores unless of course we could find an impartial volunteer. Though that could be awhile to find one. Just seems easier to have you possibly get the scores from our 3 recent volunteers and post the results so we can get some "closure". ...lol, I never thought I would ever use that word in a sentence!

I would be happy to ping those folks myself, but feel out of place since I am an entrant. :)

Thanks for the offer!!

Might as well take pictures while I judge 'em. :p

10-09-2009, 12:35 AM
For experiment 21zzalpha, make sure to take the picture in the dark, not in the light. I believe the light switch is just so we can see how it's made, since it's a "creativity" based scoring.

It would be really great if I could get the 3 other replacement judges to submit scores to me by the end of the day. It's becoming more and more likely that CrazyMario fell a thousand feet below to the land of the lost, and it really only takes about 15 minutes.

(I just wanted to say it was my real good fortune... not entering this round.)

As such, I just had the opportunity to go through and experience each of your creations.

Although I tried to go in with no preconceived ideas, (I really did try!) I must admit I was surprised. Surprised @ how the character contest grew and what ultimately became of it... but more so, how all of you have grown. I really feel honored. There are some great characters in the bunch... and that's just not lip service. And some of the showcases for these great characters are simply better than anything I will ever create... and there just throwaway showcases! So congratulations to all who entered, to those who win, and those who are improving... I mean it when I say thank you for making my planet! My hats off to ya!

Oh, and all this switching personas and avatars... is really making it a nightmare for me to read and comprehend threads. Please No Mas, no mas. First came Coxy's fantasy-gender-therapy... and now, all of you have been infected! One day I hope to wake to a world full of GRAVEL. That would make things simple.

Please PM them to me, don't post them. Assuming Judge #4 chimes in, it would be best that they didn't know how you voted. I'll post the combined scores, along with each judge's individual scoring (no names though), when all have reported in.

I wouldn't worry about that. He's had us for fools all along. He just got us to make characters for his levels without as much as a thankyou and now he has what he wants he conveniently disappears.

Although I enjoyed making characters for the first 2 rounds anyway and it was fun to see all the brilliant creations from everyone I didn't take part in this final round because I simply got fed up with crazymario's attitude and his failure to do what and when he said he would.

As far as I see it all the creations are yours anyway so he has no 'rights' to them. If he comes back now he'll just have to abide by what the present judges say. If he can't be bothered to show his face then he has no say in the matter.

I did say right from the beginning of this contest after seeing the first few creations that we should make a museum level/s for them as it was a shame to just make stuff for him and then have most of them wasted. We should have done that and let him make his own characters !!

If he comes back and want's to contest "ownership" of the contest, I'd be more than willing to hear him out, but as I appear to be the only one on the official "team" right now bothering to keep it up - which is a huge shame given that there are a large amounts of PARTICIPANTS who are still wanting to participate and how big a contest this has become - for the mean time, I'm holding what I consider "semi-official ownership" of it.

Again, if he (or the mods) want to contest this, that's fine ... but in the meantime, this creative outlet deserves to be continued, and if he doesn't care enough to put in the proper legwork, I will.

TIME IS ALMOST UPON US - "OFFICIAL" STATEMENT - FEEDBACK REQUESTED

Ok, I'll give Frinklebumper a few more hours or so to get in his judge scores - otherwise I'm just going to announce the winner as the person who has the highest combined score SO FAR on the piece of paper in front of me. That's right, I'm holding what is currently the name of winner in my right hand ... well, I was, but obviously I put it down just now to type this. :) This will be the winner unless I hear from Frinklebumper, as his/her scores may change that.

Frinklebumper has a few more hours or so to report in, however, please let me know if you think he/she should be afforded more time.

The winner will be announced via the following format (again, please dispute the format if you see fit as we unfortunately cannot go by the original format, obviously) ...

1) The top 5 entries actual scores will be posted. This is the sum of the individual scores (on a 1 to 10 scale from each individual judge. Me and the three volunteer judges - two if Frinklebumper does not report in time).

Other scores will not be posted, but if you are not in top 5 and really want to know what your score was, you can PM me.

I will do my best that the winner of this round receive a prize as close as possible as to what was promised by the original "contest runner" - although I obviously cannot promise you a place in his "project", which unfortunately I think we can assume is dead in the water.

However, I have been working diligently on a very large project for a very long time, and if you're interested, perhaps we could work out something related to that in some way. I have to say I would be honored to be able to make sure alot of these creations get out there and appreciated. If not, I'm still sure we can come up with something. You have my personal guarantee that I will do my best to try to make sure these characters (at least the winners) "see the light of day".

2) If there are any ties, since crazymario is not here to "break ties" as originally outlined, "I" will add a half of a point as a tiebreaker to one of the given entries. However, this method will be done using the most impartial method I can think of that seems fair ... using my daughter to vote on who gets half a point.

3) Afterwards, I will set up a thread for the NEXT ROUND for whoever wishes to still participate. I will donate exp myself if necessary, and may think of other prizes later. I'm sure that any of us who want to continue with this can work out a prize structure.

Theme/Rules will be chosen by me, and judges will be based on a volunteer basis. I and any other volunteer judges will not be permitted to submit any creations to the contest. Also, you can not become a judge if you are married to someone who has already put forward a submission, nor can you put forward a submission if you are married

Other than those differences, it will proceed as close as possible to a normal "Round 4".

If anyone would like to afford Frinklebumper extra time, or would like to dispute any part of the outline I put forth, please do so. This is your contest, I'm just the one left "holding the gavel".

(THIS IS ALL BASED ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT I CURRENTLY HAVE WHAT LITTLE AUTHORITY THERE IS LEFT TO RUN THIS CONTEST AND MAKE SURE THAT IT PROCEEDS - IF CRAZYMARIO OR THE MODS WOULD LIKE TO COME FORTH AND DISPUTE THAT PLEASE DO SO NOW. I WILL NOT BE UPSET, BUT THIS IS THE EFFECTIVE POINT OF NO RETURN, AND IF I CONTINUE TO BE UNCONTESTED, I WILL PROCEED TO MAKE SURE THIS CONTEST SERIES CONTINUES. THAT INCLUDES ANNOUNCING THE WINNER, AND STARTING UP THE NEXT ROUND)

Thanks to Jagrevi and the other judges too for saving this contest from sinking into oblivion.

I look forward to taking part in the fun once again at some point.

Just one point I'd like to clarify Jagrevi. When you wrote:

Also, you can not become a judge if you are married to someone who has already put forward a submission, nor can you put forward a submission if you are married should you have put 'to a judge' on the end of that? As it's worded now it sounds like you can't enter at all if you're married !

Ok, first of all, congratulations (and thanks) to the winners, and everyone who has participated in the contest! Thanks a lot Jagrevi!

I am VERY sorry that I have left you all without proper notice. I feel ashamed of myself. :( To be truly honest, I need to focus on MY life right now, I never have time to play LBP, or go onto LBPCentral every single day. Not only that, but I also simply don't feel like playing LittleBigPlanet. I can't ever think of anything to create, I already beat the game 100%, and there aren't ever any good, original levels anymore. The game feels pretty much, at the very least, wiped out. In fact, I haven't touched the PS3 in AGES, I've been playing the other two consoles.

As for me "bringing my rage upon you all", there is only one little post that really ticks me off:

I wouldn't worry about that. He's had us for fools all along. He just got us to make characters for his levels without as much as a thankyou and now he has what he wants he conveniently disappears.

Although I enjoyed making characters for the first 2 rounds anyway and it was fun to see all the brilliant creations from everyone I didn't take part in this final round because I simply got fed up with crazymario's attitude and his failure to do what and when he said he would.

As far as I see it all the creations are yours anyway so he has no 'rights' to them. If he comes back now he'll just have to abide by what the present judges say. If he can't be bothered to show his face then he has no say in the matter.

I did say right from the beginning of this contest after seeing the first few creations that we should make a museum level/s for them as it was a shame to just make stuff for him and then have most of them wasted. We should have done that and let him make his own characters !!
I do remember being taught, when I was little, that making assumptions about other people, like the example above, is just simply plain rude. You ARE older than me, are you not? I already have enough stress in REAL life, could you please go easy on me? What made you think that I wouldn't someday read this?
The post IS somewhat true, however. I HAVE abandoned the contest and the LBP project "conveniently". However, it wasn't intended AT ALL. I have enjoyed every single entry, and I have enjoyed running this contest until this round, in which everything in my real life started plummeting, and I simply couldn't run it anymore. I never left simply because "I had what I wanted".
Since the winners of these rounds haven't gotten their prize, I will give every single one of them the proper fraction of ALL my EXP, no repeats on people that won twice. The next time I need something like this for a project, I will properly ask.


So here's what gonna happen:


I will no longer be playing LittleBigPlanet.
I will no longer be visiting LBPCentral.
Jagrevi will take over the Character Design Contest, he has every right to change any rules, the judges, or hand over the contest to someone else.
Before I leave LBPCentral, I will give every winner of every round the proper fraction of ALL of my EXP.
If I return, I will NOT take over the Character Design Contest.
Project "Final Sack" is terminated.

Goodbye, LBPCentral!
