I love Halloween :eek: and would love to play a bunch of Halloween themed levels so let's have a level design contest!

Anything in the spirit of Halloween is fair game. Creepy or cute, scary or sweet, it's all up to YOU! Just keep in mind the MM rules about content so your level is not moderated.

PRIZES

1st Place - 500 exp
2nd Place - 250 exp
3rd Place - 100 exp

exp will be donated by MrsSpookyBuz and myself. :)

RULES:

1. All entries must be posted in this thread and be published as playable to the servers no later than Midnight Central Time (US) on October 30th, 2009 - that way we can play them on Halloween :)

2. Only one level entry per person/team. (You may put a new level in to replace an older submission but only one will count) I have no problem with collaboration BUT before you do decide to work with another person, it's your responsiblity to determine how the exp will be distributed if you win. I don't want any fights or surprises come judgment time and I will not moderate problems that may arise between teammates. (You can handle this and if not you've been warned.)

3. Level can be a survivial challenge or a more "traditional" platformer style level and anything in between.

4. No limitation of DLC - If you have it and want to use it - go for it. If you don't have one of the packs you may need to think creatively about how to get what you have to do what you want. Amount of DLC will not affect judging but rather if it's used well it could help.

5. The LBPCentral.com sticker or item (see Takelow's level for item or Confused Cartman's level for sticker) must appear somewhere in the level. Doesn't have to be huge or in front but I'll need to be able to find it. It's a way to promote this great site and the least we can do for having a place to host contests like these.

6. All submissions must have been made during the contest period. No earlier levels will be considered.


JUDGING

I'll play all levels posted in this thread that have been submitted before the deadline. I may bring in other judges and I would prefer they don't submit levels into the competition for possible conflicts of interest issues. I'll work this out later.

Criteria for judging

Levels will be scored by adding up scores from the following categories:

1. Fun Factor/Playability - make 'em fun if you want points here.
2. Visuuals/Polish - how pretty is it or at least how polished and neat is it?
3. Lighting/Effects - either great use of lights and gas and other visual effects or a lack of them if the level calls for it. It will be dependent on if the level "feels" like it's been set up right for whatever the level is depicting.
4. Originality/Creativity - can be anything from a great story to good decoration use. Just make it your own and use all the creative juices you have. :)

k - If I missed anything or if you'd like to suggest a rule change I'm all ears. I'm really excited to see what this awesome community can put together to celebrate my favorite holiday!

GOOD LUCK AND GET CREATING!

I'll enter, but does it have to be Halloween themed or just scary? I would much rather just make a creepy level than a Halloween themed one. Then again, I could definitely make it relate to Halloween someway..

CyberSora
10-04-2009, 06:13 AM
I barely made the intro. It's called, "Sabkboy's Halloween Spooktakular".

Now don't steal the name! :p

Morgana25
10-04-2009, 07:09 AM
well scary is cool so, yea I think that will work. I'd like them to be more Halloween based so zombies, ghosts, skeletons, stuff like that is cool if it's scary but scary like for other stuff not traditionally Halloween like might be a bit off. pm me with specific stuff if that dosn't answer your question.

*sigh*.... I already have 5 unfinished levels on the go and this month is going to be crazy busy with work, as well as looking for a new place to live Nov. 1st. As much as I'd LOVE to submit something, I'm afraid I won't have much time. :(

I will however, make it a point to play the submissions. ;)

10-04-2009, 04:47 PM
I got the intro done, i'm working on the rest as we post. Mine is called "Trick or Treat-ment":p
I already got a little story to go with it, but I don't want to spoil it for everyone.

If it makes sense for your story - sure. I'm thinking a good broad concept to keep in mind would be if they wouldn't air your story on TV during Halloween it may not be Halloween enough. If there's any question - please pm me and I'll make determinations on a case by case basis.

this is absolutely brilliant. I've been looking for Hallow-e'en levels to play, and there's a bewildering scarcity of them. Actually, not too bewildering I guess, considering the game came out at Halloween last year and this is technically the first Halloween we've had with the game as experienced level creators.


You actually did it!! :)
I might enter something short just for fun but a full blown level is out of the question I think.

I think I may just do exactly likewise. I figure I should be able to put aside a night or two SOME time this month to just put together a little something. Nothing big or complicated.

Of course, that's easier said than done.

CyberSora

Spook House - by enodrawkcab


Spook House –by PSN ID: enodrawkcab
placed on Rocky Mountains in North America


“Having slid off the road during a scenic drive through remote mountains you find an “abandoned” house to take shelter in until morning.”

Spook House is an eerie puzzle/treasure collection level with a minor plot which is starting to become a pretty good story. It makes much use of all three planes (forward, middle and back) to progress through the game. The path is far from being just left to right. It is mainly designed for single player play. It contains over 33 collectable items.

I am currently working on the next in the series... Spook House: The Cellar. As I work on The Cellar I am tweeking whole story arc which means I have been and will be revising Spook House so that the whole series will be a complete story. I am also going back and changing things in the original level as I find and discover better ways of accomplishing things I tried to incorporate into Spook House. Each level in the series builds on the story line in the previous level. The completed series will be Spook House; Spook House: The Cellar; and finally Spook House: The Mausoleum. I am hoping to have the Cellar completed by October 23. The completion date of the third level of the trilogy is up in the air... but I assume will be shortly after The Cellar as I am fiddling with ideas and making prototypes of the contents as I am working on the second. Hopefully... Spook House won't turn into a Rose Red... but it does seem to be reinventing and adding onto itself daily.

Tough, I wonder If I shall work on my werewolf idea:), or making a new one, the idea is already in my mind:grr:, the name of it is called Paranoia Darkness, Where I will try to reflect what is in my darker side, and trust me that place is like a black hole:cry:

I was rather surprised to find entries this early in the game... until i stumbled upon a level on cool pages. Apparently LBPForum.net is also hosting a halloween level contest, so people who work on one for here might want to think about using it to enter theirs as well.

So, I've made the first section to my level. What do you guys think: Halloween Hell or Trick or DIE?

Anyway, I think I can finally start making high quality levels. I recently started using a couple magic tools: Grid and Corner Editor. I love them so much. :p

How about, "the tricks in the treat!"... not a choice huh?

I personally can not stand the grid. It cause me headaches and heartache. I refer to it begrudgingly out of necessity.

On a brighter note; I must be officially at work on a level b/c I lost it during an unexpected power failure due to extremely windy conditions... don't you just love tradition?

Hiya! Looks like this is going to be quite popular, which is great. Just letting you know that if you feel a bit over-burdened with judging, I really don't mind helping out.

I know you're a super-wiz when it comes to judging and giving feedback, but I'll help if you want/need me to.

WOW!!! Yes I DID misinterpret it! Before even reading your followup explanation, I spent a good minute trying to figure out what in the world you could possibly have meant, and making the mistake of trying to picture it.

If I joined, I would crush everyone. There would be zero competition if I entered, so therefore I am generously sitting back and saving the contest.

Kudos for your modesty :p Don't worry, I read the small print, but even without it I would have known. It just makes me chuckle when really skilled people without egos put out false arrogance - makes a refreshing change from false modesty if you ask me :)

Is there a limit on how long the level has to be? Mine seems to have a decent beginning but I want it to grow and grow... a lot. I'm only about 20% but its going well :)

BTW Zwollie you owe me 5 000 000 dollars for that joke. :P

No limit in terms of the rules of the contest. One level, any length, any style, anything goes..... just see my post about what constitutes a Halloween theme (I'm very open minded about this) and what MM rules are about content.

K my level won't be very long (or inappropriate at all) :)

My level doesn't have the kind of story you would normally expect with a name like All Dressed Up. It will be a bit of a mediocre story but I'm not going for that. I'll make it as polished and fun as possible.

This will be a very, very good competition indeed.

This is definitely sig-worthy.

For some reason I'm creating really quickly. It's the corner editing too, everyone. Complex shapes take seconds!

Hello Morgana

can I still join the contest please?

I'm going to start working on a halloween - horror story themed level but I'm not sure if it get's done in time for 31.10.

will try though :) and if it's not yet ready I'll put the game online with a to be continued mark :)

it will be a story driven level, no platforming or action, just a scary story like an interactive movie (cfr fahrenheit game).

the name of the story will be:

level name: Homeless
psn: freddykrugerfred

hope this is ok?

greetings

When do i publish the level? Its nearly finished. Please can you reply to me on my profile.

And how do i post it on here? do i put the name of the level?
lol sorry im not that experienced with this site yet as i havent had time to learn as im always working!
Thank you :p

level name: Homeless
psn id: freddykrugerfred
level type: a short horror story (fitting for halloween)
features: some dialogue to tell the story, some neat detailed locations (thermometer is 3/4 full) and a cool twist.

it's a very short level but that's really ok because I don't really need more scenes to tell my tale. it's all about the story here. You will not find gameplay here, this is more of an interactive bedtime story you tell kids on halloween :)

i've added a small picture of one of the big set pieces of the level near the beginning:

http://img382.imageshack.us/img382/8576/littlebigplanet009.jpg

The level will be online on wednesday the 28th of October.

to do list:
* download a cool font to use in the level
* add more scenery to the opening scenes
* add lighting
* add sounds
* add final scene
75% percent complete at the moment :)

You call 3264x2448 pixels small? :p

The level looks interesting, as do a lot of the projects going around this thread.
I'm working on mine in some capacity, more artwork on paper than actually realised in LBP at the moment..but...uhm...well, c'est la vie. :)

That reminds me that I really need to start scanning that artwork, I promised Bonesy in some other thread.

Yes indeed. I will play each and everyone of them that enter this competition.

Morgana can you keep an overview of all levels with a small description on the 1st page?

that way everybody can see the levels that have been created and as such they don't have to search for them in this thread.

The picture I've added on my level is indeed a bit bigger than small but o well :)
I'm adding even more detail in the next few days.
For now, most of the lines of dialogue have been added and already found a good font to use on the community levels.

I have a list of all published and ready to play levels in post #2 of this thread. Once anyone who's submitting a level has it published and ready to play - post in this thread with the name of the level and I'll update the list. I don't mind you guys posting stuff in the works - actually it's kind of cool - but I won't put anything on that list until you post it's finished. Don't want people trying to find levels that aren't available yet.

So far the entries are awesome and from the work you guys are posting this is going to be a lot of fun to play all the submissions. Still have two weeks to go so keep at it! :)

This happened to me! I lost about 3 hours of work today because it didn't save, even though it was NOT giving me the "can't save profile" error! GRRR...

Anyway... I just wanted to pop in real quick to give an update before I slump into bed and pass out.

I had a bunch of ideas for a Halloween level last night, so I started playing around a bit today to implement them.

Many many painful hours later, I'm now eye-balls deep in dirty, dirty level-making. So it looks like I'll be submitting an entry! It's still going to be a while before I can even dream of being done, but I'll be sure to get this done before Halloween. There's nothing sadder than a Halloween level after Halloween.

I've got a Christmas level, and it doesn't see much action, because nobody really wants to play a Christmas level for 10 very un-Christmasy months out of the year. It looks like I may be dooming myself to a similar fate with this one, but that's okay with me. So far I really love what I've got going, and I'm not taking it too seriously, which is always the secret ingredient to making good stuff, at least for me.

Agreed. I do that too most of the time. One thing I realized is that even if you save your level, you have to go back to your pod and let it save more. I know it sounds weird but whenever I exit the PS3 after just saving it or without leaving to my pod, it just doesn't save. It's strange :grr:

Morgana25
10-19-2009, 07:05 PM
yea it doesn't actually "save" when you say save. It saves down when you quit the game..... stupid I know. So even if you "save" and then your system crashes or you shut down in a strange way (any number of ways) the save won't actually save. It will load up the last remembered profile you have which may have been the one you started that day with and voila - lost work. Publishing to the servers is the only real way to "save" for that specific point in the level that's reliable. But then again there is the risk of the failed to load level error showing up. It's a flawed system to be sure but it's the one we have to work with. :)

Holy crap. I'm going overboard here. I swear to God, I am completely unable to keep myself reined in with this game. If I go in to tinker with an idea, chances are, I'll go careening off the edge of reason and just go absolutely overboard.

I mean I'm sitting here, painstakingly laying out elaborate letters over backgrounds just to create custom stickers, just to plaster on tiny little barelyf-visible street signs, some of which are SIDEWAYS.

It's completely over the top. I'm at 3/4 thermo and less than halfway through the level. Maybe I should start making the ending and then hope I can meet myself in the middle...

Anyway, I'm really excited about this. It's easily some of the best stuff I've made to date in this game, I can't wait to get it finished.

of course, an entire day of work basically means I've made one tiny building, approximately 13 sack-steps worth. so it's going to be a while...

Maybe tomorrow I'll post some preview screenshots so youze guys can see what I've been slaving over.

Hello Morgana

I have published my little big planet halloween contest level now :)
I've managed to find the time to add some lighting and sound effects and now it's done. I could have implemented gameplay bits and some more cutscenes but then I wouldn't have made it for halloween. Did the very best I could on a great story level. Hope this gets appreciation as I worked hard on it :)

level name: homeless
psn id: freddykrugerfred
1 PLAYER LEVEL !! (it's not meant for multiple players at the same time because that can confuse the scripted sequences)

(picture see messages above from me)

Well I made it! It's a short story based level perfectly fit for halloween.
Even though I'd only had 2 weeks to create this (because I have to study for exams) I managed to put out a good level.

I hope everyone will enjoy this story based piece de resistance :) Remember, its all about the story so don't judge it on platforming or action elements.

Happy Halloween everyone !

This is my first contest I've entered here at Little Big Planet Central, or anywhere for that matter as far as LBP creations are concerned. So I enter in my "The Little Big Nightmare Before Christmas" published Tue, Oct 20.09.

You'll find the Little Big Planet Central logo near the base of my ending scoreboard, good luck everyone!

Here is abit about my submission for this Halloween contest...

Hey everyone, two months of hardwork have finally concluded today as I've finished and published my latest Little Big Planet creation in time for Halloween... The Little Big Nightmare Before Christmas. This level takes place in Halloween Town and was painstaking recreated using photos from comic con, the actual movie and fan art. You'll find many of the main characters from the classic Tim Burton tale as well a few of my own original ideas.


There are currently 6 unlockable prizes at this time and although I'd like to add more, the Little Big thermometer was once again maxed out with several warnings the level was "overheating" due to the complicated shapes it took to create this new project. I'm especially proud of the lighting/ camera work in The Little Big Nightmare Before Christmas, as hours were spent on those areas alone. I think you'll find this to be one of my most gripping levels yet and I invite everyone with access to Little Big Planet to try it out, You can search by the title "The Little Big Nightmare Before Christmas" or by my PSN name "CloudStrife_ca" feedback is always welcome and appreciated... enjoy the new pics of the finished product!!

Heres a few random facts as I usually add after publishing a new LBP level, just kinda interesting stuff that happened during the making of the level. 1. This level almost didn't make it after my PS3 - Yellow Light Of Death issue/ repair costs me the finished city Halloween Town, the level you're about to play was built a second time. 2. It took approximately 2 months (not including the first version before the YLOD) the longest its taken for any of my LBP creations. 3. It is possible to turn the Christmas lights on in Halloween Town. 4. I played with the idea of having one double life check point for the whole level, but thought it'd be a pain in the *** to have to restart from the beginning everytime. 5. Oogie Boogie's House was the toughest thing to build in this whole level, it looks disorganized but its very precise to have those angles come out looking like a "disorganized, organized chaos".

You can change your level or make a new one. Whatever you want - but I can only accept one into the contest. If your going to make a change or update it let me know here so I can go back and replay it. If you want to make a new level just let me know that too and I'll switch the post in post #2.

Cool CloudStrife_ca - I'll list it in post #2.

Argh! Another level of NBC! .... ...Ok no problem, this means that i have to work harder! I'll check your one soon, From the imgs, it seems a really good level. But, is your one about the real NBC story? My one is a "parallel" story, that has place in the same world, but many characters and places are made by mi insane mind :kz:

So back on topic - Teebonsey - is your thermo really that tight?

I'm not in dire straits yet, I'm actually HUGELY enjoying making this level... can you believe it?? Can you BELIEVE IT?? ME!! I'm enjoying creating... I'm... ENJOYING it... The words taste strange to me.

But there's this ominous thing on the left part of my screen, grinning knowingly at the despair that waits right around the corner. I know there's not enough juice to do everything I want. Right now I'm not compromising anything, but the time for killing my babies will come. Yes, that time always comes.


I'm making a wonderfully delicious level of candy corn, and the many different ways to "grow" it. It's coming along quite well, but I'm not sure it will get done in time...

Please, allow me to be the first to tell you that your idea is genius, sir.

There is some detail missing as my scanner doesn't seem to function as it should but there ya go, I am doing something.
This is my proof if the level never gets out there in time!! :D

Edit: It will probably be called: Night of the dancing dead. I dunno yet.

WIN!!! :p I so cannot wait to see what you've been up to. I have yet to play everyone else's levels, I've only played Joey's so far and it's awesome :p

most of the level is more enjoyable with friends but may need just a tad of coordination on the bungee jump ride (which can be played infinite amount of times(so can the one next to it)) to grab it at around the same time, not hard at all. Enjoy! :p

oh and have collect community objects on, just need to sneak one sticker :)

Okay... I FINALLY finished the thing I was working on, and can get back into my Halloween effort. Although I'm exhausted from spending so much time in Create mode! I feel like the thing I was just working on probably hindered the quality of the final Halloween level because it just took it all out of me. As per my usual, when I started the other thing, i went in with the intention of doing it quick, in one session preferrably. Just a quick thing, get it in, and then go back to the other one.

and here I am, days later and working like a slave every day, and it's done, and now I can continue it all over again with the halloween level! hoorays!

But seriously, it is fun working on, and I'm really looking forward to wrapping this up and putting it out there soon.

yeeeaaa the middle layer needed to be clear in order for the fireworks to work best so i had to make the sacrafice and try to block people from going in there. idk what you mean with the scoreboard though, give an example? does it raise when only one person is on or something? maybe i forgot to set it to "everyone must be present" :grr:

10-26-2009, 10:58 PM
I liked it but I can't get into details since I'm judging. I'll post feedback on your level thread after judging. I just can't give pre-judging feedback for everyone and I don't want it to be unfair. Make sense?

well, we were behind the front layer - don't know if that's inside or not. LOL guess I'll have to check it again.

Littlebigdude805
10-26-2009, 11:04 PM

Hahaha - Okay, I promise this level will be finished. ScoutsBoo PMed me earlier and offered the advice that for the contest deadline I could always just slap a "to be continued" at the end and then finish it properly a bit later, so I might end up doing just that.

What I'll probably do is just kind of rush an ending, making it smaller than originally-planned, and THEN later go in and flesh it out a bit more.

Just so everyone is clear on this......

In order for levels to be considered they must have been made during the time of the contest. So if you made your level prior to the last week of September it will not qualify for the contest. I wanted everyone to have the same ammount of time to work on their levels so it was fair. If your level was made from the last week of September through October 30th at midnight you can submit it.

OUCHIES. Just to give people a little update here. I'm having some baaad issues in my level. Need some help. I might post in the help forum, but for now maybe someone knows what the deal is.

I can't put any piston at .1s speed, it just plain won't work.

Spontaneously, without my doing anything, and in PAUSE mode, my level will occasionally all of a sudden jump up over a notch on the thermometer and OVERHEAT. It says "use less shapes and collected objects". I can't find any stray emitters or anything. Again, it happens in PAUSE mode. The piston thing is just strange. I had a movie object which got completely destroyed.

But, in short, this stuff is killing me, and I've basically hit a wall. Any ideas?

The closing date of the contest is 30 October at 23.59 Central Time... What time is it in Italy/Europe? I think that is something like -6, so in Europe we have time until the 6 AM of the 31 October... Right?

Yes midnight Central US time is 6am in Italy.

Just in case anyone else need this.

@Teebonesy - Check with GrantosUK - I think he's had that level jump in pause mode issue before. My Chroma Stone 5 level kept giving me that error and freaking out too. I'd take it out of pause for a second or two until it stopped overheating. Not sure what causes that. Not sure about the piston issue either. I ended up replacing some of mine on CS5 but no clue why they fail without warning.

Morgana if you have issues finding my level, please let me know I've had several people say they've had issues finding it and for whatever reason when I search it by name or through my PSN name, I can't seem to find it myself, its like it hasn't been pinned to my name yet... I've tried republishing a couple times, has anyone else has this issue?

I'm almost there... I'm aaalmost there.

I have a halloween party to attend tomorrow night, and work during the day, so I may have to weasel this in a bit after deadline. I'm hoping I can pull this off early tomorrow though.

I'm putting a bit of extra into the finale, I want to make sure it's cool. But there are a few places here and there that are a bit rushed through. So, compromise here and here, go crazy there and there. That's how I'm rolling.

The time zone stuff confuses me, so I'm submitting my entry now to be on the safe side.

It's called LBPC Halloween Entry. It might be easier and quicker to search for my PSN which is Ayneh.

It's nowhere near being finished, only got around to filling 1/3 of the thermometer so it's a short level.

I think the boss fight is good.

ok - in light of technical problems with the LBP server I'll extend the submission time.

How about noon on Saturday US Central time. If the servers are still down I'll adjust it again. It gives an additional 12 hours to anyone wanting to polish up their level as well. If you've already submitted your level you can still adjust stuff until noon as well. I'll replay them all on Saturday afternoon.

Sound good?

I was coming on here to say I wont make the deadline... and wham! Its extended. Now if 2 wk old goes to sleep there is an off chance...

Anyway will definitely publish whatever I have on Halloween so please look for it.

Its called "Oogie's Bugs". Considering all the technical problems this level has undergone and how slow I am it is quite remarkable I am anywhere near finished in 26 days... that's a record for me.

Just a little somethin' somethin' for those with love 4 me.

Whoooa, that's tripped out! Especially that second shot with the concentric hollow cylinders...

I can't wait to see this thing in action!

By the way, just to give an update, I've ensured that I have a really cool finale. It is now time for me to fill in the big tough blank spots that I've been putting off like the plague since I started this level. OOOOH lawdy.

well apparently I am quite finished as in... done in by the thermometer. I like this level though and its' possibilities... I think I'm gonna leave it up and puffing for breath...

and try to rework it from scratch a little more smartly. I know I can get it all to fit... It did once! For anyone who cant fathom it I think I'll start giving personal tours... Anyway it's got some missing pieces ( i suck!) and its not just me who thinks so... I mean it is a broken level... but whoa! I think the time/space/vortex/tree did in its fair share of visitors... As well, Happy Halloween everyone!

*rips shirt off*
RRAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!

*tapes pieces of shirt together, puts back on*

So my Halloween level is published. IT IS PUBLISHED! What a horrific nightmare today's been getting it done! It CONSTANTLY overheats, and the only way to get it to SHUT UP is to let it sit in play mode for a while. everytime I enter the level in edit mode, it instantly is overheated. Really - REALLY - frustrating.

The level is called:

Fear and the Phantom Town
Published under PSN: Teebonesy
Available in the Pacific Ocean.

The story: It's Halloween night. Rumors are spreading that a strange ghostly town has appeared in the distance - and some unusual things have been seen coming out of the moon! To top it off, eerie black-cloaked figures have been spotted in town...

What could this mystery mean??

And as this night of trick-or-treating gets more and more dangerous, will Zwollie, xKappax, Teebonesy, and Morgana survive the night??
(yes, all of these familiar sackpeople make appearances in this level)
(Not that Teebonesy is a familiar sack-person, but so far my dapper sack has made a cameo in all of my levels).

I've also put together a more in-depth showcase thread (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?p=321372#post321372). But for now, here's a screenshot to tease and entice.

I put up a showcase thread for the level. I'm really nervous about publishing it, because it's been rushed for the deadline, it's quite complicated, and I'm sure people are going to run into glitches/issues. I just hope these aren't too frustrating for anyone.

Here be the link to the showcase! (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?p=321372#post321372)

ok - my internet was down all morning but I'm up and running!

Happy Halloween!

So here's the gameplan. I'm playing the ones I haven't played yet now and I've asked a few people to weigh in with their votes too. Hopefully by this evening I'll have some results for you guys!

Thanks so much for such a great response and for ALL the hard work. I know some of you guys had a lot of technical problems and time pressures and I appreciate all your effort! Good Luck to everyone and I'll be back with results as soon as I can.

Morgana, will you be playing the levels you already played as well? I made some changes to mine which i wouldn't want to go unnoticed.

Thanks, and cant wait for the results!

Does anyone know a place to find Dante95's level - not coming up when I searched it. Or if there's a comment somewhere I can use to find the level?

EDIT - nevermind - figured out his psn name (fill out your profile Dante95 it will help :) )
