Okay, I've had this idea for quite some time now, and now wanted to share it. If it's well liked, I'll throw one together right away. :D

When I discovered the giant LBPC logo courtesy of Taffey, I began using the copyable level as the base for all my future projects. I wanted to have it in every level, and so would choose it to start every production. While I was using it, I began thinking of how cool it would be to have a starter kit that would have some time-saving features.

My ideas for a copyable starter kit:

One: Small LBPC Logo, Basic Scoreboard with surrounding thin layer.
Several: Basic logic switches, which of course can be reprogrammed.

Do you all like the idea?

I think that this would be very handy, especially for those who are just starting to learn advanced logic like me. Also, What is the level called with the LBPC logo on it?

I know there would be people interested in something like this.

This thread should explain all:

Also, this seems like a pretty good idea. :)

I agree, this seems like a great idea B3! I'm really surprised that I have never heard anyone mention it before. At first I thought that you were going to talk about making a bunch of templates, and I have heard that idea a million times, but this idea of just building the start of a level with some basic tools built in is really cool :D

I also still have that "medium" LBPC logo for you... It's the same size lettering as Gilgamesh's excellent large logo, but it simply says LBPCentral and takes up a single line instead of 4 lines. I haven't been able to capture it though - I think it's too complex still. Well really, all you need to do is recreate a 'L', and a 'B'. The 'P' and everything else are the right size for it already.

Haha, takes a while to get it right. When I'm too lazy I'll most likely turn the layer to gas and then glue it to the Scoreboard, and then unlethalize it.

We could also create lettering sets
like have them in multiple fonts
that would get rid of the annoying sticker font

This is a great idea! But who is going to make the levels?

Hey I was going to post that. If I may, I would like to volunteer to create some lettering. Maybe in 2-3 fonts at the most?

Everyone can have a part in this. I suggest we start by having Taffey publish the logo as a copyable level. Then TheNerd and ali and whoever else can make fonts.

Whoa whoa whoa, do you mean the LBPC logo? The big and small one? Because we already have one online. Although, if Taffey's is different, then I'll be happy to see it. :)

Taffey
06-29-2010, 07:02 AM
Yes, mine is slightly different. The same visual style as Gilgamesh's logo but fits in a much smaller space and uses less thermo.

I set up the copyable level and went to publish it but I can't get online. Apparently I need to update my game but when I go to do the update it says I have the current version. Odd. :confused:

I was just online about an hour ago with no issues so they must be making some server-side changes. I'll guess it's related to the new Fantasy level pack coming out tomorrow. :)

Anyway, I'll try again tomorrow get this published as soon as I can get back on the Community Moon.

@ Taffey
did you update your system?

they finally have the system update 6.30 out. it took them 7 monthes to do 1 thing to the systems software. wow

Voltergeist
06-29-2010, 03:49 PM
No, you missed while you were gone, but Taffey published a contest entry with the PERFECT LBPC logo. About the same size as the previous small one, but it actually looks good.

Also, I really want to have someone add a Randomizer to this. I tried all last night to make a peg randomizer, but I guess the gravity in LBP PSP actually works right, making it unrandom. Can anyone build a randomizer for this kit?

I would love to help with this, I could make fonts too (lots of them) or something else. :)

Just to make sure that you all know there is a forum about a logic pack for the psp and it seems to be looking at a similar goal to you
Ive put the link down there just in case you cant find it

@ Taffey
did you update your system?Thanks ali and EEC - it turned out to be a system update. I downloaded the update this morning but it wouldn't install because my battery level was too low... Gah! Why they don't let you install when you have it plugged into AC I will never understand.

So anyway, I didn't have time to wait for it to charge up and I had to run to work. I'll install the update and get that level published when I get home in a couple hours.

Okay I got one font set made. Took me a while. I'll add it in when Taffey publishes the level.

Taffey

Ok! The level is finally up - thanks for being patient everyone.

It's called "Small LBPC logo" and has a Sackboy smiley face as the icon. Enjoy! :)

Okay, Nerd is next up with his font. Again: Does anyone know how to create a PSP randomizer?

When my triathlon entry is done, I will make a randomizer. I have an idea!

If you downloaded this level you may be asking yourself "whats up with the egyptian pharoah dude?"

well i thought itd be cool to include some characters. if its not a good idea go ahead and delete

Graffiti font added!

both my added fonts r full editable(size etc) so that should help ppl hopefully

B3, u wanna add anything now?

Voltergeist
07-02-2010, 12:13 PM
I don't really have much to add to it at this point. I figure when it's done, I'll go in and work on the presentation. I might do a horror font too if I find one.

By the way, that graffiti was coming along great on the one I got!

Voltergeist
07-05-2010, 08:48 PM
I've begun working on formatting the level. Expect it either tonight or tomorrow.

Voltergeist

Triple bump? Anyways, the kit is up in v.1.00 form. Enjoy! :D

I advise as many of us as possible to keep a copy in your published levels, so the most possible see it. :)

Alismuffin
07-07-2010, 01:02 PM
hey i have some stuff to add so ill grab it?

Voltergeist
07-07-2010, 01:12 PM
Sure! Just copy the doors, and move the floor and the scoreboard out to make room. Publish it as version 1.30 or something. :P

Alismuffin
07-07-2010, 02:54 PM
Ok v1.30 published!

Changes:
-LittleBigPlanet Logo added
-Two basic logic gates added[perma-switch and RPG scripter]
-Sackboy Template

07-07-2010, 03:00 PM
Great minds think alike Ali - I was going to add a sackboy template too! Nice work! :D

Alismuffin
07-07-2010, 07:49 PM
ha ha! lmao yea
im sick of seeing those grinnimg sackboy objects being passed off as characters
so now we've tackled two major issues:
-annoying sticker font
-annoying "characters"

I have a realy good sackboy template with his arms shaped. its the big sackboy that you start next to first time you go to create mode on a new game but without the mouth cut out and its perfect size.

Hi guys, I found a few problems in the kit. First, the music area isn't big enough, not that it matters but I thought I'd say it anyways. Also, for some reason, I can't capture the logos. I hope you can fix these issues.

Alismuffin
07-09-2010, 11:41 PM
oh what ur meant to do is use the level as a template. so whatever u need u just copy or drag and place it. and delete any unneeded stuff

Yeah, I figured that out after I downloaded it. I wish it let me capture the LBP logo cause it's awesome and I wanted to put it into the level that I'm currently working on.

thats how i transferred it into to pack

Cool B3 except you should be more specfic though considering the basic scoreboard? i heard of a scoreboard and i dont know a lot of switches so yeah

Wow this is cool! I was buried in work last month and I'm finally catching up. I would suggest updating the OP with all the changes. It would make it much easier for people to see what has been added.

Great work guys.
