View Full Version : LBP Central's Imagithon!

Welcome to my new project! I decided to take a break from my other work to put this together. Imagithon!

A level that we all make. How does it work? I have published a base level, you simply download it and copy it to your moon! From there you add your own section onto the end of the level and then republish it for someone else! You also have the ability to tweak sections made by others as well if you want! Hopefully we'll end up with an outstanding level made by the community!

One point I'm sure to hear is "Someone'll download it and claim it as their own!" Well frankly that is possible. I'm just relying on community not to be so pathetic as to do that.

Also, the reason I published it here instead of level showcase was because:

1. I didn't want it to appear as one of my levels. (Because its everyones level!)
2. It is a project isn't it?

I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

CREATOR LIST:
1. Fastbro
2. BlueBulletBill
3.VelcoJonze

Ps. Special thanks to SirPaper for posing the idea some time ago!

I might mess with this a bit as a distraction from my current project. I'm not sure exactly when/if I'll be able to contribute, but I love the idea. :)

The only thing I'd recommend is that people post here when they are going to be working on the level, otherwise you will get two people working on the same thing at the same time, and it will all go to heck.

You may also want to use some kind of version control methodology... Say you do some work and publish "Teh Awesome Level v1". I'd take it and mess around a bit, then publish it as "Teh Awesome Level v2" and so on. Of course posting here would let people know what the latest version is... What do you think?

Fastbro
03-09-2010, 08:36 PM
Great idea Taffey! I'll go republish it now as V1! It probably is a good idea to have one person working on it at a time as well like you mentioned...

(Ps. One of the main reasons I created this was for a distraction from my current project!)

Huh, so... a community hotel? But with people who are actually talented doing it?
Count me in, since I haven't decided my next project (I'm not gonna remake the Lava Flows just yet), this might give me some much-needed ideas. You'll see my update soon, today or tomorrow.

Voltergeist

Uh, you might want to take note that if you use DLC content, some of us won't be able to edit it. :(

Great! I've been waiting to see some of your work B3! So can I put you down for the first editor?

I never thought of that... I'll go edit some of the materials used now!

I put you on the list, just let know when you want to start you section!

This is a really cool idea! Are you going to put some kind of limit on the amount of thermo a contributor can use?

Fastbro
03-11-2010, 07:31 AM
I don't plan on putting a limit, I'd just expect everyones section not to be to large!

Voltergeist
03-11-2010, 07:19 PM
It's still not working for me. I'll have all the DLC tomorrow anyways though, so you'll see my section then.

Fastbro
03-11-2010, 07:25 PM
Hmm... I'll take another look...

EDIT: It should work now!

VelcroJonze
03-13-2010, 09:37 PM
Hey Fastbro, I think this is a great idea and I would love to contribute.

I have purchased every piece of dlc but it still says I don't have all the packs.

Could it be that you have the collectors edition?

Fastbro
03-14-2010, 09:52 AM
I'll check all the stickers, that might fix it...

EDIT: I think I found the problem. One of the stickers was from The Islands. It should work fine. If it doesn't O'll being chucking my PSP against the wall. :mad:

Silver39
03-15-2010, 11:46 PM
Well Fastbro. Find a good wall and get your throwing arm ready. I still can't copy it, sorry.

Fastbro
03-16-2010, 05:49 PM
I managed to er... fix my PSP after its little "accident." Anyway I'm not sure what the issue is now. Have you downloaded the latest version? Which may I add was made by BlueBulletBill! He's added a cool section from one of his lost levels "Volcano Panic!" So if you plan on editing, go for V2!

Voltergeist
03-16-2010, 08:08 PM
Hey, I think you would have said something, but I'll check anyways: You don't mind that I put my name in in an... unorthodox way, or that I advertised my site? If you do, go ahead and remove it.

Fastbro
03-16-2010, 08:14 PM
I don't really mind you advertising your site.

Silver39
03-17-2010, 08:15 PM
I think I may have found the troublesome sticker. It may be that flower you covered the trees with in Sunshine fields. Otherwise I'm at a loss.

Taffey
03-17-2010, 09:09 PM
Hopefully I can do some work on this sometime soon. I've got a busy 8 or 9 days ahead of me, but somewhere in there I'll try to find time to contribute. :)

I like what Fastbro and BluBulletBill did.

Fastbro, you have a style that is all yours. Everything you make just looks so pretty, (except when you do dungeons and sewers of course), but they still have your trademarked artistic flair. Nice job on your section. One thing.... the switch to lower the bridge into place is very hard to grab for some reason. It always takes me a few tries to grab it. Weird.

BlueBulletBill, your section was so fun. I really wish you had turned that into a full level. The art style was perfect and your characters, as always looked awesome. Very nice.

I really like how this project is going.

One question, can I contribute and if so where can I start my section? :)

You simply remove the small section with the score board at the end then start building whatever you want!

I'm glad you like it. It's possible I may revisit the Lava Flows series at some point. I'll have several platformers going at one time, so I'll see if I can begin work on it again one day.

I have finished my little section called Tera Cota.

It comes right after BlueBulletBill's piece. It's all you'd expect in one of my levels, only pint size. :)

I have a couple little tweaks, but I should put it up tomorrow morning sometime.

Lilman1101
03-21-2010, 06:16 AM

Just search for "Imagithon" you should be able to find it from there. :)

Hey Lilman, you might have to had the explanation point at the end of the title when you search.

Amazing stuff VJ! The gameplay in your section was exactly as I hoped it to be!

Curses! I can't add to it because I need a DLC to use it! :mad:

I used dark wood from the canyons and the music from the metropolis. I forgot about not everyone not having the dlc. Even after fastbro had to republish. I am such a moron.

I'll tell you what, I will find some music and a different material from the regular game and republish tomorrow because I really want you to do something on this. :)

Hmmm. I wonder if bulebulletbill used any dlc content? :eek:

EDIT : Okay CS, I put up another version, v3.1, and I used everything from the regular game.

See if you can copy it now.

I don't know if BuleBulletBill did, I'll have to ask him. :mad:

Amazingly, I almost did - I almost used materials from the Wedding until I thought better and fixed it by sorting all the materials by level. I have the approximate attention span of a squirrel some days.

VelcroJonze

There's still some DLC in the level!

Sorry CS, I found a couple more small pieces that were covered with a thin material, so I changed them to basic wood.

I hope you can copy it now. :D

CyberSora
03-26-2010, 03:39 AM
Well I did, but the dam thing won't let me. Look, I'm sorry for the trouble. As of right now, I'm [I]temporarely off this project, seeing that my own irresponsibility of purchasing DLC's is causing good and creative ideas to be simple thrown away. So, once again, sorry.

VelcroJonze, you can add everything back if you want. Don't worry, I'll be buying ALL DLC's soon. :)

Peace

VelcroJonze
03-27-2010, 12:35 AM
Hey , no worries CyberSora, I really wish you could have done something on this. I'm not going to change anything back, I kind of like the new look of my section. :)

Again, I hate that you couldn't participate. :(

Don't hate the fact I'm not in. Be glad you still have more members who are willing to participate. ;)

Besides, I did win Taffey's contest earlier, which gives me a DLC of my choice, and I'm going to get a PS(R)N card later on. So don't worry, I'm a-coming with the a-stuff! :D

Version 3.12 ( I think), is now up and running.

Everything from dlc should be out of the level now.

*Crosses fingers*

CyberSora
03-29-2010, 03:36 AM
Downloaded... and... no. :(

Hey, but on the plus side, missloach02 added her own part to the level. Check it out! Search "LBP Central's Imagithon", and you'll find it. ;)

Fastbro
03-29-2010, 07:30 AM
Thanks CyberSora! I'll also take a look at the level too...

Silver39
03-30-2010, 01:05 AM
Yeah, I think my games just plain screwing with me. Today, I tried to edit a level I made BEFORE any DLC came out. It says I have to buy the DLC first. :confused:

I was downloading VelcoJonze's newest level, and I noticed that he had a copy of this, so I downloaded it as well :-) I figured I would toss in my thoughts about it to you guys. I have no idea what version this is, so hopefully my points are invalid due to this being a super old version.

I love the way that the start of the level looks with the dark background and the stars! There is one small issue though: If you run to the left, you can see out of the level and it is blue, which sort of destroys the fun atmosphere. It would be good if you could build further to the left, or make a camera there so the player cannot see that far left :-)

I love the LBP Central Imagithon sign :-D

It might be good to put a checkpoint right as you enter sunshine fields because I tried to go to the right without going up in the tree because there was an arrow there and I thought I was going to a secret area, but I ended up dying and having to go through the intro again. It's certainly not a big deal, but I think it would be better if the player didn't need to do that, an an extra checkpoint doesn't take much work :-D

For some off reason I couldn't grab the 2 way switch handle in the tree. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe it was just a bug when I loaded the level. I had to literally jump into the handle until it would flip to the left.

Okey dokey, this may COMPLETELY irritate you (B3), but I really don't like the way your character pops up and says all kinds of things unrelated to the story of the level. I think that the player just wants to play the level, and if there is dialog, they want it to be telling a story within the level. I really don't think that people want to hear about where the level ideas came from or promotion for websites. I am not saying that it doesn't matter, and I am actually interested in hearing it! I just think that the average player will either ignore it or be irritated with it, and it certainly takes the player out of the experience. This level is AWESOME, and I love the volcano part, but it seems more like an advertisement at this point than an awesome section of a compilation of level sections.

TerraCotta was a lot of fun, but seeing as I JUST played the full version of the level by VelcoJonze, there isn't much to comment on here since I left all kinds of feedback there.

I think that this level has a HUGE amount of potential and I absolutely love it. I was a bit afraid that the different sections of the level would not mesh well, but it flows wonderfully, and they have so much atmosphere to them that it makes me smile just to play the level. I hope that I don't make you angry about what I said B3. You can do whatever you want with the level, I just wanted to let you know how I felt as I played it.

Awesome work guys!

Hey poo! I just went and published V3.5! So it should fix some of those things you mentioned:
-Extra Checkpoint added!
-No more blue at the beginning!
-Tree switch fixed!
-Extra sound effects added!

Also I'm hoping that you may add to it in the future. ;)

^Unfortunately you are wrong. Fastbro published the new one. Cause if the tree switch is still a lever, that's old. The new one is a button switch.
