Another Contraption Challenge is finally here! The task is to create an artillery weapon - somethign that fires, throws or launches something to destroy a target. You've until 9th May to make something awesome, and the winner will win a digital copy of LBP PSP! (no PSP Go this tiem I'm afraid)

For all the deatils, head over to this thread at the EU PlayStation forums, (http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/LittleBigPlanet-PS3-General/LBP-Contraption-Challenge-11-Artillery-Weapon/m-p/10637815#M53731) and make sure you read through it carefully. Good luck!

Oh darn it. What chance do us mere mortals have in this challenge against people like horwitzer, Incinerator and rz22g among others who have been making military stuff since day one. Infact some of them have these made already.

Still I guess I'll have a go just to make up the numbers of losers.

EDIT: Oh dear, just noticed the prize is only LBP PSP. I already have that and hate it, it's crap. Is that the only prize ? If so it's not worth me wasting my time.

Make a comic weapon then. I already got an idea for one, but I don't know if its actually possible to build and whether I can bring myself to scroll through the pop-it for hours in search the square sticker and the scroll back all the way to the top because I remembered another good looking one.

Depends if you would consider this challenge to be 'military'. For instance, does a giant foot that kicks an exploding sheep fall under that category? Probably not. ;)

Just edited my original post. Please read.

If you would like my copy of LBP PSP to let you award 2 joint winners then you're welcome to it. If so just let me know where to send it, alternatively you could even call round to my house and pick it up as you live just a few miles away. See what you think.

Couldn't get a PSP Go this time. We did have something else planned but that'll probably have to wait for the next challenge now.

However, plenty of people entered the last challenge who [couldn't win the prize just for fun, and clearly they didn't consider it a waste of time. ;)

Nooo! My PS3 is still out of order... I think it won't be back in time for the contest...Oh, an Artillery Weapon...I had so many ideas! Does anyone want to do a sort of coop? (I give the ideas and he creates, I don't care about the prize)

Dante, I'd be interested :D
And winning comph's switch contest has given me enough confidense to actually belive I can win O_o

Here's my personal checklist in order to win:
[] Take care of all those pesky people who have a chance of winning
[] Make something of OK quality
[] Win the contest

Nuclear, read Mistervista new post, more prizes pl0x :D

I'll be happy to coop with you Fredrik, in case we win you can take the prize, don't worry ;) Anyway, I know that people like Incinerator are masters in making tanks and other vehicles, but, looking to the CC Videos, you can see that often the creativity and originality win on just detailed vehicles.

I can remember the days when the contraption challenge didn't have any prizes whatsoever, yet people entered and had fun.... All those many weeks ago... How things change :(


Anyways, smashing stuff is ever so fun.

But, I have no chance of winning because of Playing one of Luos' levels, and thus Now officially live in the U.S, And in all terms have become invalid in taking part in anything, I don't think I'll waste my time.

Thanks for the offer, but we're just sticking with one prize for now. To be honest, I played the LBP PSP beta and didn't like it to much so if I was entering I wouldn't care about winning it as a prize, but it's all there is for this challenge, and at least some prize is better than nothing. And as I said, really you should be entering for the fun of it, the prize is only a bonus. ;)


IAnyway, I know that people like Incinerator are masters in making tanks and other vehicles, but, looking to the CC Videos, you can see that often the creativity and originality win on just detailed vehicles.

Too right. Just look at the Cow Cannon, it was hardly the most detailed or complicated Sackauplt but won bedcause of how original and funny it was.


Just kidding, I have a really stupid idea that would bring a smile on somebody's face(I hope) .

Can't wait to see it!


Also, why can't it be a person?

I asked MusterBuster that, apparantly it's in case the level gets moderated. Also I suppose it's not a good idea to promotoe a challenge where you attack a person.

Well, the limit was introduced this challenge to prevent people entering 6 or 7 (like some did with CC10). Quality is always better than qunaityt, but I'm surew you already know that. ;)





Anywho, just a bit of random info - I got the idea for this challenge whilst playing Angry Birds (http://www.rovio.com/index.php?page=angry-birds) on my iPhone. For anyone else who has played it, I challenge you to recreate it, complete with a multiple choice of different birds! :D

Same here, and I came up with a couple of sketches as soon as I read the competition guidelines! XD so after spending about 5 or six hours on the mixing lorry, by following my sketches from the day before, I got the second one with the frisbee up in about 2 hours.

By the way, can someone check out my Frisbee Launcher one please and tell me if it follows the guidelines and actually counts?

03 was siege weapons, so that included battering rams and things that physically pushed the wall down. I think a requirement of this one is there has to be a projectile involved.

I agree. As an animal lover I find that more offensive than blowing up sackpeople.

BTW great level of yours Doopz already.

I've succumbed and made something for this just for fun. Should be up soon.

Nuclearfish
04-25-2010, 11:34 AM
Getting a few questions about whether things are within the rules, so I shall just clarify:

- The contraption needs to launch/fire/throw a projectile at the target.
- The projectile itself should cause the destruction of the target.
- The pojectile doesn't have to destroy the target on impact.

However, like always these are more guidelines than strict rules. Ususally, if you think yourself that it probably won't be allowed, then it probably won't be. Always best to ask though. :)




How is this Contraption Challenge any different then 03?
I mean is anything that was open for Contraption Challenge 03 now not for Contraption Challenge 11 valid?

Thanks for your time!

In CC03 you had to build something right next to the wall. In CC11 you can make it as far away as you want, so the contraptions should be very different!


So that makes 2 of us that aren't sure if our entry counts!

Actually, my frisbee level one isn't really a projectile, so i guess no...

Played yours and from whatI can remember I'd have to say it's not allowed. :( It's not really an 'artillery weapon'.


Interesting. I might participate.

You should! In fact your mutant polar bear from CC10 would work really well with this challenge. mMaybe make a version 2, or make something even crazier.... ;)

That's okay, I've put 'VOID ENTRY' in the title today, so people know. I'm going to take that entry down (or at least remove CC11 from the title) and replace it with a throwing arm that I'm working on at some point...

By the way, Asbestos - I really like your idea! Totally unexpected! =D

Red - normal
Blue - multiplies
Yellow/green (not sure as I'm colourblind) - speed boost
Black - explodes
White - drops egg

I reckon you could do it if you had a grabbale suface you stand on to both launch the birds and activate their special ability mid-air (because you can still use grab switches when watching a cutscene camera magic mouth). Good luck!

(btw - I don't want to see hundreds of Angry Birds levels, so if somebody makes an awesome one there's not much need for anyone else to do one too!)

Yeah, it's a pretty good update.

In fact, the new bird included is probably a good idea that someone could 'borrow' for their projectile - a boomerang. ;)


Unexpected or not, Fish didn't conclusively tell me if was ok or not (looks like its probably no), so i'll just leave it up and submit something else as well lol :D

Well, as I made clear I think the idea is fantatsic, and the idea alone is certainly within the rules. The bean at least appears to be causing the destruction, even if it really isn't. I suppose the best thing to do is see what everybody else thinks, cause I'll be willing to allow it only if nobody thinks it isn't fair. :)

That'll be fine. Don't worry about 'killing' anyone int he contraptions - in my eyes even if you blow somebody up it doesn't matter as they're only made out of cardboard (or whatever material you've used). :D

I think it should be, because he said:


- The pojectile doesn't have to destroy the target on impact.

But if they do another 'more we liked video' then it will most likely be there. Remember in the CC10 there was a vehicle that connected to a satellite, and a laser evaporated the water? It's a fairly similar idea to yours and it got in the extra video! ;)

Are you working on another one too?

Yeah, about the boomerang bird idea, my first idea was launching a ball on a chain, then pulling it back, letting the castle trip over.

Something I need to know: If i send a shape flying, and emmit from it, does the shape i emmit fly with it or will it fall straight down? If someone could test this for me, as I will be unable to play LBP the next 2 days. Please PM me.

Weretigr
04-25-2010, 07:07 PM
It will fall straight down. Well, not straight down, but it will definitely fall, it will also move slightly in the direction the shape that emmited it was moving in, as it falls. Think of the bomb survival levels, some of them have emitters emitting bombs, and those emitters move left and right via piston.

If you make a boomerang that emitted itself with force and a spin then theortically it could hoop around... Requires testin' and i'm not gonna' do it lol :P

edit : you wouldn't be able to have it spinning and hooping because the spin would throw off the emission. But i'm sure it could be done.

Maybe if you fired a metal shape with a cardboard boomerang attached to the front of the shape with a motor bolt... And then just have a winch attached to it to pull it back to the launcher... =)

I'll try that out soon, but don't worry - I won't use it in my entry, It was your idea first Okisaan!

Are you allowed to launch stuff at penguins? Just I played a CC11 entry where you launch penguins at more penguins.

I think it should be disqualified, it encourages cruelty to penguins...


I agree. As an animal lover I find that more offensive than blowing up sackpeople.

The difference is the length from the wall? That doesn't change much...

Increase/Decrease the strength of the emmiter.
Increase/Decrease the proportions of the wall and the weapon.
Increase/Decrease the ... camera zone?

What even defines close to the wall or far away from the wall? It's a fun challenge nonetheless, I just think it's not very new.

Yes I personally think it's funny, that was just my tongue in cheek way of highlighting what I think is a ridiculous situation in LBP in general when we can't have decent weapons to equip instead of the now boring paintinator and we can't blow up sackpeople in contest like this, yet in almost every level made ( including all the levels made by Mm ) sackpeople die horrible deaths millions of times every day by bombs, electric, fire, gas, crushing, drowning, spikes, etc. etc.

It's a totally stupid case of double standards to then say you can't blow up sackpeople in a contest level.

It's a game, where nothing you kill will actually die. An animal in the game is just a piece of stickers and materials, that does not have feelings, while a sackperson is being controlled by a real person who would probably get pretty ticked off if he were to get shot. Also, no one (who is not mentally unstable) is going to go out and kill sheep because of a sheep cannon level.

did it say no sack people? I thought it meant representataions of actual people. Anyway, wouldn't it be okay to kill sack people if you provided a means of escape. You know a little challenge. The whole point of LBP.

To be honest, yes, it is very similar. However, coming up with completely original ideas for challenges that aren't too complicated couldn't go on forever, and the majority of people who take part in these challenges now hadn't even heard of the CC back then. It's been a while since we had a challenge like this. :)

Also, even though the goal is the same (destroy a wall or other similar target), the contraptions are very different. Last time we had stuff like battering rams, swinging boulders, lasers, boxing gloves, etc... This time it's mostly catacpulkts, cannons trebuchets, and other 'throwy' things. Plus there's ammunition involved which very few CC03 entries used.

I go on for a while listing all the differences, but so far from the CC11 entries I've played almost all are very different to the stuff we had in CC03. :)

Varrent
04-26-2010, 05:46 PM
Ugh, working on an Angry Birds contraption just for fun, got some birds and targets... but the slingshot is being a pain for the right ratio of elastic strength, if its weak enough for sackboy to pull it, it doesn't shoot the bird far enough, any suggestions?

Weretigr
04-26-2010, 05:53 PM
You could have a magnetic key switch attached to the bird to activate the powers, and a big long strip of rubber covered in magnetic keys of that colour. Then shrink down the strip so that you can't see it, but it's still sufficient in length. Then, put it up out of reach (or right down below) and in the front or back thin layer, attach one end of a piston on it, and the other to a piece of dark matter on the opposite side (top or bottom, depending on where you put the original rubber strip). Set the piston to flipper motion, so that it will shoot across the screen when a switch with one shot activates it. Thus activating the magnetic key switch. If you want the powers to stay on, then you can have a permanent switch built into the birds.

That's how i would do it anyway ;)

Oh, and to assist the sackboy in pulling, You could have a winch set to flipper motion so that it will slowly pull the elastic backwards, and then when you let go, the winch will go to full length in time for the elastic to do it's thing!

Varrent
04-26-2010, 06:13 PM
Thanks Dayne, yeah an invisible Piston or winch would proabably work, was just trying to keep it 100% elastic for the authentic slingshot feel :)

Weretigr
04-26-2010, 06:18 PM
The propulsion part of the sling IS authentic, You'd just be assisting sackboy's own strength as you 'prepare' the slingshot! Think of it as having a few players all pulling on the elastic together... Like that! If it was a winch, It would be authentic. A piston would fire the sling by itself though, So that wouldn't work...

By the sounds of it, it counts. It doesn't have to destroy the target in the first hit. You could fire something that lands in the target and flips out knocking it down after a few seconsd.

Yeah, but your entry was the best one out of the types of entries that transformed in that way.

In the same way that that xbow is the best out of all the simplistic launching machines, and it'll be hard to beat it playing it on it's own terms. People will have to start thinking more mechanically to beat it :)

The catapult is not the hardest thing to make too. The trebuche sucks.
Well, that's being a bit harsh, isn't it?

No offence, but I checked your entry, and its basically just a giant pole you can move up and down and an emitter that actually fires it. If you ask me, it's far more creative if the actual contraption lanches the projectile and it doesnt just spawn out of an emitter.



Edit: Just played mistervista's entry, and Emo, it's pretty much an artillery gun simiular to your own, only better (in my op.) because it actually fires the projectile, and doesnt just launch it by using an emitter.

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and this is the first time I'm participating in the Contraption Challenge.

My entry is called "Teleporting Sack Cannon" by Fotosynthesis1
The goal is to shoot your sackboy into a volcano using my Teleporting Sack Cannon. Your amount of shots fired determines your final score.

This contraption is also used as a gameplay object in my level "Stranded on Treasure Island"

I hope you like it!

No, they decide how well it does the job, if it complies with the regulations, and if the judges like it or not. This is a judge based competition / challenge, rather than one based on community. Although, We do vote for which finalist will come out on top.

Hey all, been lurking around the lbpc forums for a bit and decided to join up! I spectated along the CC10 so I figured I'd give this one a shot.

Published up my first (and probably only) entry, CC11-Dock Cannon.

Nope. ) This has always been my event. In fact Mm don't really have anything to do with it aside from judging CC07 and 08 and posting stuff on their site. It's Sony who presumably noticed how as=wesome it was and wanteds to take it further. But I still come up with the challenge ideas, make the example levels, (partly) write the threads and do most of the judging. And obviously Chimpanzee helps by doing all the video related stuff!

Of course there will be!

The question you should be asking is 'when'. Currently I may (or may not ) be planning another event following a similar format to the CC but for a certain other game that may (or may not) be released in 2 weeks. If it did (or didn't) go ahead it'd probably slot nicely inbetween CC11 and CC12. Who knows?!

Don't worry about the slingshot- it's more the choice of different birds that do different things that I wanted to see. ;) And of course a fortress full of pigs.

I just got round to playing your level, I think it might be that people don't know how to raise and lower the platform. I didn't realise until I accidentally feel off and saw that bird, so I tried to pull it along, and noticed the platform moved. It's a shame it's too late now though, I don't think you're allowed to edit it now... :(

Oh, I got 200 points, by the way.

Wexfordian's Granny Panty Activation System was very funny! And unexpected! When the voting is over, you could maybe put her in a kitchen at a stove (goes with the frying pan) and the projectile is thrown out of a window. ;)

Okisaan's Angry Bird level was very clever, and looked good too! Although sometimes the birds didn't spawn for a while- and the yellow bird wasn't great... But all the others worked fine! I loved the blue bird that split up too! Just a shame you couldn't adjust the orientation of the slingshot. But I understand the complications there!

Well, your problem of not spawning is due to the 30 seconds living time of the birds. And if you had read the post above yours, you would have seen the White Bird wich lowers the Platform is underneath it. And yeah I know the Yellow s*cked, it's too heavy and the boost isn't working. I did launch it once when the Plat was rised to the max and it actually had big impact one the first castle.

But did you all read the Instructions on the left? :P

I didn't make a 3rd entry in the end, I had a mechanism worked out but I wasn't bothered about finishing it. It only used 2 bits of elastic and 4 wobble bolts and it would stretch the arms back, lock the sling in place, put the arms back in place and release, sorta like a mechanical steampunky crossbow.

I didn't think it would be as strong as my other entries though so I didn't finish it :P

Would anyone like to check out my level "Jams are Bad"? I'm not much of an artist, but I engineered an artillery contraption so complex that I can't, for the life of me, sort through the entanglement of wires. I added a very short objective to force you to explore the entire contraption.

I tried to create a contraption that is so incredibly complex that it overheats the level instead of adding something really cool to shoot at. Simply 1 shot to win if you don't change the angle of the gun. Most of the target ship is not attached together, so you can knock the bridge off to win. It was a little boring, so I added some explosives for effect.

The objective is to get the artillery contraption online so that you can use it to shoot the ship. Hence the name. Except that it's not a jam in the ammunition feed; it's an entirely different kind of jam altogether(Fired-up Monkeys). You win the artillery piece, minus the feed line, if you beat it.


Remember: WHEN GREEN HOLD TRIGGER UNTIL LIGHT TURNS RED. Because you might end up with a real jam on your hands, or a broken breach. It only takes 1 shot to win, so it doesn't really matter if you break it.

I'm not sure why it's taking so long, but it was only a couple of days ago I got a a shortlist of about 20-30 levels which I'll need to pick the finalists from. However, I've been a bit busy lately playing MNR (and organising and awesome event for that which should be starting tomorrow), so haven't had much time for LBP.

Indeed. The big problem with your Land/Sea Vessel was it kept doing a massive wheelie when it first went on land, and also as you say the sails didn't always work. But we always make sure the contraptions are working as best as possible in the videos. :)

Well, we've got our four finalists. Chimp has recorded them and he's putting the video together over the next couple of days. :)

Once again, the judging system was a complete mess. Even worse than last time. We'll definately need to sort something better out for CC12, even if it means I have to play hundreds of entries myself.

Anywho, the finalists we have are all pretty awesome. I've already got a pretty good idea which will will win, but I'm hoping that with less finalists there won't be any which end up getting hardly any votes. There's going to be another 'More We Liked' vid too showing off others that didn't make it, and there were a lot of other really good ones, so that video should end up being pretty epic if we fit them all in.

So, hopefully the voting should start in a few days. I'll keep you updated!
