Greetings everyone! My name is Woflgod and today my new thread is actually a contest! Actually, it's my first time HOSTING and JUDGING a contest on LBPC. So don't be surprised to be confused!

Now for the contest!
For those you don't know the contest topic is, read the title. No seriously! This contest depends on you or a group of go-gidders, is to make a template or level that needs to FLOAT. That's right. FLOATING IN MID-AIR! Like making a castle, village, farm(Don't ask) etc, that floats. The idea came to me when I was working on Vertigo. As I got done with the preview, I went, "Hey, why not make a contest based on floating pieces of land!
Rules:
Can you use Dark Matter? Yes, but keep it hidden so I won't state any notices and go off on you. Make sure it's very CREATIVE! I like levels that are creative. NO COPYING OFF OF OTHER LEVELS. That is also very important. I hate copied levels and the H4H people saying THEY made it. So no H4H people allowed to copy or JOIN this contest. EVER. MUST BE APPROPRIATE. All levels or templates must not be disturbing or uncomfortable will be disqualified and BANISHED from my other contests.

Now the Judges, Contestants, ETC.
The contest starts and ends on April 15-May 15. So make sure you guys enter and end before the deadline. The judges are...

So there is no restrictions to the size of the area you can build within? Or at least playable area. Sounds interesting, if I have an idea and motivation I will put something together.

There's no restrictions to the size of the area. Just be creative! That's all I can say

Two quick questions:

1) What is the reward for winning?
2) What is the limit of people that can join this contest, or is there none?

Woflgod
04-11-2010, 12:18 AM
The reward is unknown for now. And 2, there will be 10 people that'll be allowed to join

ok i might ty but i have a question,how will you identify it?

Woflgod
04-17-2010, 07:08 PM
How, you ask? first, when you complete the entry, you need to publish it and name it whatever you want. But at the end or in the description or anywhere we can see any text, please write *Woflgod's Contest Entry*, *Entry for Floating Castle Contest*, etc. Then, when I look for it, i can easly locate it

The funny thing is that this contest is a kind of stupid idea, but it's awesome. Just something that floats, that's kind of funny. :p I want to enter this, though.

Just one question: one of the things our levels will be judged on is "challenging". Is this talking about an appropriate difficulty, or does it have to be hard?

Heyy ! :hero:

Do you think I could put one of my friend's name down for your contest ?
His computer has broken down :grr: His PSN ID is Sunnix.

I hope everything's gonna be alright, but I could understand you don't say yes.

Woflgod
04-18-2010, 03:47 PM
For Awesomemans, it doesn't matter, as long it has some difficulty and with "unique" challenges, I would say.

For Oddmania, Yeah, he/she can join! With or without a computer, you can still join. But the limit is only 10 people. So be aware to not overload so much people!

Sunnix

So. I join this Contest.
Please, accept me.

I'm sure that my level interesting you. (...)
But I have questions :
- The creation is just a Island or a really big level ?
- My level can be locked ? ( Because its a little part of my Soon level. :/ )

Yep, I'd like to know too. Is a whole level compulsory, or would a " gallery " level with floating islands and a good-looking scenery be okay ? I guess a challenging level would be better.

My level for this is out now. It's called Secrets of the Sky.

Emogotsaone
04-24-2010, 07:29 PM
I don't know if i will...

Woflgod
04-24-2010, 08:40 PM
For Oddmania, it can be both, it doesn't matter if its just a level or be a gallery, as long it's creative!


As for Awesomemans, I checked out your level "Secrets of the Sky". And i got to say, you may be on the road to victory. But there indeed are some flaws i spotted while playing the level.But yes, it was satisfying to play. :)

Emogotsaone
04-25-2010, 07:25 PM
Hey can the level already been made? Because i just played Cloudy With A Chance of Teamwork by: Comprehmc (sorry if i mispelled it)

Edit: Name is totally wrong, its by: Comphermc

Woflgod
04-26-2010, 01:42 AM
No, it has to be made by you. DON'T COPY OR USE SOMONE'S LEVEL FOR YOUR PURPOSE. Please read the contest rules!

Emogotsaone
04-26-2010, 01:27 PM
I was not copying, i was giving a suggestion. He has all the credit and i have none, its just a really good level.

OneEyedBanshee
04-26-2010, 01:56 PM
So the question is can the level have been started on before April 15?

Woflgod
04-27-2010, 11:22 PM
Yes and Emogotsaone, sure, but just don'y DIRECTLY get all his ideas to make your level

Emogotsaone
04-27-2010, 11:32 PM
No! I wasn't going to make a level... I was suggesting his for the contest.

Woflgod
04-30-2010, 12:46 AM
Oh! Okay. Sorry, I am a little off this week.

OneEyedBanshee
05-06-2010, 02:24 PM
I was asking the question in regard to Emogotsaones one. The level he suggested was started on before April 15 which I think it's more fun if you have to make it during the contests entry time but anywho. I'm working on something, haven't been able to find motivation at all but I will try getting it done by the 15th. I could get it done in a few days I'm sure but I need to be really into it which I haven't been able to do recently. :(

Are you allowed to enter a level that's already been published prior to the contest?
If so then I'll enter my level Dreamscape.
If not then :(

EDIT: What I mean is I made the level prior to the contest.

Woflgod
05-09-2010, 08:17 PM
Hmm. Sure! But the person who made the level will get the credit, not the person who's entering that person's level

Emogotsaone

WARNING: Today is the last day to submit your entries to this contest! So hurry as fast as you can too finish and publish your level on LBP. Make sure that you tell me the name of the level on this thread or I won't know. Thus, you won't get any credit :(. Anyway, judging will start on sunday and the winners will be announced on Tuesday May 18, 2010! So good luck (again)! :D

OneEyedBanshee
05-14-2010, 09:52 PM
By this is the last day do you mean today the 14th? Or tomorrow the 15th because it's 10:50pm, kinda last second to warn if you mean the 14th.

Woflgod
05-15-2010, 05:07 AM
I mean that tomorrow the contest is over, so that's means that today is the last day to submit your entries. Please read the first page before questioning

Woflgod
05-15-2010, 03:17 PM
The contest is now officially CLOSED. So any who post their entries today will get credit. But for tomorrow, it'll be too late.

OneEyedBanshee
05-15-2010, 04:28 PM
Right this is far too confusing, eleven hours ago which was roughly 6am(today) you said it finished tomorrow. Now it's closed and it is still today as far as I can tell.. Meh ok can't be bothered at this stage, level is 99% done but I may as well polish it instead of rushing to publish. There must be time zone differences or something because I can't tell what time it is on Mars. It is the 15th of May where I am and I take a contest running from April15 -May 15 as it can be submitted anytime in between those dates including on them. I must be wrong about that though, anyhow good luck to those that entered.

Ok.. well it's titled "Trouble at the Floating Zoo".

Let me know if it's qualified or not so I can remove the contest entry part from the description if it hasn't.

Woflgod
05-15-2010, 07:36 PM
alright, I'll check it out soon as I can! Thanks for entering!

Woflgod
05-18-2010, 11:49 PM
It has been very tough deciding which level is good enough. There were pro's, and cons. So now, the winner of this contest will recieve:

Imaginary Crown!

And second place will recieve:

Imaginary MediaMolecule LBP T-Shirt!(For sackboy)

And now, The Imaginary Crown goes to...


OneEyedBanshee!

Because he made a very awesome, creative level that really did shine and made this contest proud! But it did have some cons,but I won't say. For now


And for second place is...

Awesomemans!

His/hers level also did very well, but it did have a plain feeling for it.Yet it also made this contest shine! Congrats to the winners!
