Well, I have thought about this for a while, and I want to know what you think. What will the next boring, mass published, cool levels filling, most of them probably crappy, irritating and common survival level in LBP 2.
We have had the bomb survivals, along with the shark survivals, but what might the next be? Of course they will probably stay, people love them (of course, not me and a bunch of you guys) and they will still be around.

I have come up with, after watching LBP 2's E3 presentation, that those portable emitter hats might be the next badass things. Maybe the objective will be to shoot bombs at the others?
I would like to name it "ZOMG, EMITTER GUN BOMB FIGHT!!1! HAZ REAL EMITTER HATZ"

That's what I think. What about you?

I think, I don't care. I will just rely on my lovely level stream showing me what people, who I think have great taste, find awesome. :)

I think your going to see a LOT of zombie suvivals.
1 - Dress a sackbot up like a zombie, set him to follow, walk like a zombie and leathalise it.
2 - Set an emitter to emit these guys.
3 - Publish.

@Syroc:
I agree with you, I will probably either check someone's recommendations or just try to find anything nice out there. I will stay clear of these levels anyway, but predicting what might come is always fun!

@Wexfordian & JwwPhotos:
Along with zombie survivals, I am also thinking about sharkbot survivals. Basically sackbots dressed up as sharks, lethalised, and swimming after you. I predict sackbots will probably be heavily used.

Electric sackbots shooting bombs whilst the camera has a rave and spins around or something.

I think there will be alot of people that will make simple survivals that may be created in 30 seconds involving sackbots (sackbots zombies etc..) or other similiar simple levels that may be the equivalent of bomb survivals on LBP1.
But hopefully they will no longer harm us because everyone will have their own stream and that lbp.me thing so you will always be able to find good levels that you like. If people still want these types of survivals (probably kids idk) they would be able to find them i suppose.

Exactly, this way everybody gets what they want. Im so looking forward to the new layout. Just subscribe to a load of people from here you know and trust and you will have a a constant stream of good levels to play. That added with the feature to just add a level to your playlist from the internet is going to change the way we play the game completely.

Don't be sad about survival levels dominance, now they will be closed to there own category and if you don't like it you can simply not visit there category ;]

Yeah, I think everyone has already thought about how easy it would be to make a hoarde of zombie sackbots coming in waves. It's almost too fun NOT to do. :)

Is it really even necessary to discuss this?? :frightened: Because of the fact that your giving a lot of those noob spammers idea's. :p

Ha ha, lol, but really I don't think that the 'Spamed' levels won't be a problem anymore with the new community system.

Don't get me wrong, I think there could be some really good zombie survival levels if people put a little time and effort into making them. Its the same with the bomb survivals and shark levels. Its not the idea thats the problem. Its all about how that idea is executed. I've played some brilliantly fun bomb levels and I've played some terrible ones. So if thats want you want to build go for it. It could be brilliant if you get a nice eerie atmoshere going with the lighting and creepy sound effects etc.

I agree with Wex, good or bad, kill 'em all. Give the spammers a taste of their own medicine... Let's see who survives this!


Seriously,though... if someone were to create '1 of these' out of say ''''''A.I,s""" carnival of the flesh scene... then maybe I'd be onboard... Actually, come to think of it... JWW showed me a thinking mans survival game last night! So I guess there out there... somewhere.

Nothings wrong with the good ones, e.g. the original "desert survival" levels by defmunky666

There's a load of them that are all identical and bland and only mae to obtain hearts and not entertain.
Not all of them are like this though, obviously.

Has anybody mentioned a bomb survival using the power gloves to pick up and toss the bombs?

EDIT: Just thought of something that could turn out to be pretty cool! Set 2 sackbots in a room both with power gloves, and give the player power gloves. Shoot bombs into the room everyone once in a while and have the sack bots pick up and throw the bombs everywhere.

LittleBigCreator
06-19-2010, 05:43 AM
Well, I was already planning to make a collection of various 2-4 player Bomberman levels myself when the game comes out, thanks to the awesome new Power Gloves. :D Based on the originals, with the original monsters roaming around for added fun and with a seven-life maximum respawn limit.

As for the new survivals... trust me, it'll be Sackbots spawned from various Emmiters all over a level set to follow you, carrying timed explosives and with a big happy grin on their faces.

NO! GO AWAY! DON'T FOLLOW ME WITH THAT! ARGH THEY'RE EVERYWHERE! NOOOOO! *Kaboom*

I think we will see a return of sack-boy death matches and sack boy vs sack-bot death matches.Like bomb survivals it will be is like sifting through dirt at first it is fun, you might find some gems but most of what you fond is worthless.

Silverleon
06-19-2010, 09:16 PM
No offence dude, but i think these "what's the next fad" threads are starting to annoy me even more than the levels they're complaining about, everyone's making a new one avery few days now... >_>

Ok we get it, nobody likes these levels ok?
So then why are you making threads that might give possible ideas for such?
It seems more you're just trying to help the cause you're trying to stop. -_-

Trust me, I'm gonna create a zombie survival kind of level, and I will publish it. Not just any 30 minutes level though; this will basically be an attempt at trying to get the maximum out of the sackbot AI settings. I failed several times trying to create a balanced and fun "shoot down infinite amounts of enemies to survive" survival challenge, just because getting emitted creatures to behave and move like you want is quite a pain. Sackbots will definitely change this, so I can't wait to try it out.

On Topic though: I think the upcoming levels of great annoyance will definitely include sackbots and, more importantly, the Creatinator. There's just a limitless amount of possibilities to use that powerup for bland, uncreative stuff that all those ambitious bomb survival creators out there will sure love: emit bombs, emit rockets, emit rockets attached to bombs, emit timed bombs, megabombs or nuclear bombs... Can't wait to see what they come up with.

I'll probably use the Creatinator to spawn minion-like sackbots whenever you need them. Like the ones shown in the Neon Propaganda part, where they just followed sackboy around. Being able to spawn them at will would sure open up some great gameplay opportunities.

wait..... can sack bots even swim? O.o if they could that would be great for creative ideas & a distaster for n00b levels. imagine...."OMG. ELETRIC SACKBOT. LAZER SHARK. WATER BOMB SURVIVAL. IT HAS REALS WATERZ, SACK BOTS & H4H!! :-)" kind of level....... -___- it pains me to even think of that monstrasity..... lol but when "my steam" comes THERE WILL BE ACTUAL COOL LEVELS AGAIN! :P YAY! thank you Mm! dreams do come true!

Bird survivals, were you have a jetpack or you are on pieces of floaty and there are birds or bugs or something with low gravity and gyroscopes. Basically a shark survival without water.

I've already played that in LBP1.


Back on topic: this one would take all of 5 minutes. Get a sackbot, Electrify/fire/any lethal hazard it. set to chase sackboy. Copy paste 30 times. Make some terrain. one checkpoint, a score board, and a **** load of bubbles. publish.

I might make a remake of my Zombie level 'Rise of The Dead' For LBP2. The new tools would help make a huge improvement on the whole point system.
Hmm how about an overhead zombie survival too? Burn Zombies! Burn! for LBP2?

as long as its quality you'll get a play from me bro. zombie survival could be awesome. - i just see this as the next spam level though...

- personally i can't wait for LBP.ME to kick in, spammers be dayumed, the copiers and h4h crowd are dead in the water once this comes into affect. - people will have to resort to actually having to spend time on their games.....stephanie_ravens you're gone burgers!

I am so thankful to MM for redo-ing the community aspects so i can keep tabs on my favourite publishers and levels.

Any one got any ideas? :confused:

Back on topic: I can see 'OMG SHARKBOT SURVIVAL' in which electrified sackbot sharks chase sackboy, IN REAL WATERZ.

Wow I think this is first time I have ever reached 3 pages on something I have posted, I need to give myself a cookie... *runs for a cookie, and comes back again*

Well Silverleon, I am pretty sure most people making these level anyway are not present here at LBPC, I am just wondering myself what the next "big -insert a synonym to boring here- one", and I turn myself to the forum to muse at this. *much* Plus, some survival challenges of these kinds are quite fun to play, those that have a certain charm and different little twist that makes it special.
If someone manages to make something that really stands out, *munch* it would be worth playing. Check out Ultimate Clay's awesome idea, it sounds like a surival/minigame which will be like Defmunky666's survival level, quite the better and more completed than them sluggy and plain other levels:
http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?28791-Would-this-be-something-you-would-want-to-play
*munch*
Though, I may say something here might inspire someone here to make an awesome survival level, which will then again make H4H inspired (in other words; copy) the idea and then publish (more like flushing down the toilet, where the waste is emptied into the otherwise beautiful sea) it.
...
*munch*

Aside from the obvious, what I see coming are tons of copies of whatever type of level doesn't take long to make a simplified version of. That means most more detailed kinda of levels should be in the clear, but it also means we're going to get tons of Race/Zombie/Space-Shooter types of levels.

But I think there are still going to be bomb survivals and "shark survivals". The sharks will eat sackbots and sackboys, the places being bombed (without a reason 99% of the time) will be filled to the brim with the largest amount of sackbots possible, and heaven forbid all of the "100,000 JUMPS!" levels with sackbots scurrying around in the pits of death for no reason whatsoever.

There are some amazing Bomb Survivals where you can wedge yourself into little crevices and pray bombs don't dislodge your little temporary fabric safe-zone. And there are some Shark Survivals where you actually enjoy dodging the sharks and trying to get as many points as possible while the jerks knock you around like you're a dog's chewtoy.

But not most of them. :(

how about a zombie/shark crossover, dressing tons of sackbots up in the shark costume? i would totally play that.. it could be hilarious. actually, i find regular shark survival to be hilarious.

it's terrible but i'm a sucker for absolutely trashy levels.

Dude you haven't been paying any attention... :) lol! The community on LBP2 is split up into categories like action, puzzle, music, survival etc, so you can always find your favourite thing. There's even a category for yourself where all you favourite types of levels go and your hearted creators + levels. I can't wait for this new system! :P

I wouldn't mind a new survival genre, provided it isn't overkilled and there are at least SOME well made ones. Admittedly, that isn't particularly likely since a good idea is one worth copying in the eyes of most, but one can still hope.

I read somewhere that a guy wanted to make a level where you run jump/ swing your way over gaps that are filled with gas, and there will be Sackbots chasing you and trying to pull you into this gas. <<< This is something I can see being as the next bomb/shark survival oh noeees.

Yes I know that, it's just that I'm saying what I think some people are going to like and decide to make it themselves and people will just keep remaking it. Never said it'll be one of the things you'll always see like on the cool pages on LBP1.
