Test out your levels before publishing them, it helps you see if there's bugs and if it's completable

Anytime :) Also, it might be good to get others to test it so that you can get feedback

1. OK First of all i would like to say Corner edit! There is no way your going to be a good creator with a blocky mess Trust me!

2. Don't go for a huge story for your first level, just make a good gameplay level with a bunch of bubbles,

3. Play test a whole lot and get others to test you levels by sending them PMs when you have published (I will test your levels for you if you like)

4. Play other levels for insperation

5. Pic 3 main materials I Think im the only one who picks three materials to use at the start, but its a good idea IMO

Ill tell you if i think of other things, oh and look at my levels serch 'SketchNZ' Ill let you use any of my idea's in my levels but it would be a good idea to do your own twist on them.

@ Awespme All you need to do is delete all of your other levels and start fresh with all of this advise, Maybe you will get a level spotlight if you do.

Uhh....Here's a few tips.

1) Drink your milk
2)Listen to your parents

Oh, LBP advice...

Don't forget to add a score board. Otherwise people will rate your levels a whopping 1 star.

Checkpoints are very important. No one likes to start from the begginning every time they die.

Play all of the following creator's levels for inspiration. Taffey (tsr13) amazingflyingpoo (amazingflyingpoo) VelcroJonze (VelcroJonze) Ali985 (Alismuffin) Salieri (SalieriAAX)
These guys know what they're doing. Play their levels because you'll get inspired on so many levels.

Know what your making, if you just wing it then you'll probably end up with a 1-3 star rating.

One more thing, don't beg for a 5 star rating and a heart. That makes the player not want to give a good rating.
