Game Title: 2012

PSN ID: Traxxer911

Hello everyone, just published a lvl titled 2012. It's about the end of world and the voyage to the moon where things aren't going too well either... I worked very hard on this lvl and invested so much time that I literally see and hear the lvl in my sleep. Think they're going to test me for drugs at work because i'm always coming in with red eyes now lol. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed creating it. Here's a few pics. *From what I'm seeing so far, half the struggle is making the lvl. The other half is advertising it.

That's odd. I didn't have any problems playing it yesterday but I'll look into it today when I get home from work.

Just palyed it and gave it a well deserved heart. A very good effort but if I could give one suggestion it would be a bit more custom content with the characters. I know it's easier to use all those pre-made stuff you get from Story mode but if you take a few hours to make your own characters I think it makes a level stand out even more and really makes it your own. Other then that, great work!

Real nice but it felt a tad short. Very nicely produced though with tons of attention to detail. Not many levels stick out very clearly in my mind but yours definetly does.

Thanks for the comments and feedback guys.

@OCK: I feel the same way, and that's one of the reasons I really enjoyed playing your level. I worked so hard and long on it that the level was literally haunting my thoughts and dreams. Near the end I started getting the warning that the thermo was about to blow so I decided to publish. I do agree with you though 100%.

@Chaz'oSulls: I agree. I hope to make my next map on a larger scale.

Just wanted to stop by and tell you I loved your level. It was the easiest heart I have ever given, and I am pretty critical. I have played it at least 10 times now.

It has been the only level I actually went through over and over again until I won all your items. Normally I just don't see the incentive. And even after I got everything, i still play it about once every time I get on LBP. Great job, I can't wait for your next levels. Just make sure you keep making your levels have a good narrative, thats what I really love about it.

And the part where you fly to the moon is just amazing. The first two times I played it though, there were a few mistakes. The first time the top of the ship never exploded, so I was stuck inside of it and had to restart. And the second time the debris from the explosion fell into the ship and I was stuck yet again. Other than that, I can honestly say this has been my favorite community level so far.

Thank you for your comments IrNinjaBob. I'm glad you enjoyed playing my lvl. I'll see what I can tweak to avoid having people get stuck in the ship but this is the first I've heard of it happening. Thanks for letting me know about it and if anyone else is encountering the same thing please let me know.

I made a few tweaks to the level so that regardless of where the ship lands the top will explode. As far as the debris, I can't really control where they will land lol. Hopefully with the changes I made this won't happen anymore.

I updated the dialogue at the area with the swords for those that were having trouble figuring out how to remove the swords from the stone.

Taking the review (http://forums.littlebigworkshop.com/lbp/board/message?board.id=promozone&message.id=1733#M1733)in hand that I received earlier last week, I've made changes to the sound of the lvl. Hopefully you'll enjoy the revisions.

Thanks guys. Glad you liked it. Have my next level all planned out already. Probably won't get started though until MM comes up with a better search function. Investing too much time as it is trying to spread the word of my level. : /

Thank you for your feedback Webwizart. The trick to the blade and the rope was to attach the rope to block of dissolvable material at the top. The blade has a key switch with the corresponding one attached to the block. When the blade gets close it dissolves the block causing the spider to fall into the pit. : )

Thanks, the space ride was the most difficult for me. Wasn't easy to get it to land in the correct spot lol.

You should see the replies I got to my lvl thread made in the old official lbp forums lol. I'd say 90% of the replies were people joking around about their plans for 2012.

I am always glad to help someone who has put so much effort into their level. ^_^ ... Just out of curiosity, how full was your thermometer when you finished that? Seems to me like it probably would be bursting. I know mine is bursting in The Fall of Winter.

The thermo was pretty much maxed out. Had a little room to add more but not enough to make it meaningful. It those **** emitters I tell ya!

Thanks lol. Glad you enjoyed your journey to the moon.

The year England gets a shot at the olympics and I can go to every game the Earth ends! Argh! Things like this make me depressed.. And that's no joke.
O_o
At least the story is good, let alone the level- awesome level.

Thanks for the comments. Plan to make a continuation lvl for 2012 in the future once the whole search function is sorted out.

Hearted it, man... short, but sweet. Like OCK said, the convey belt, and characters aren't custom, but it seems to not matter in this level. Everything else is fantastic and fun. I WISH it was longer though.

The knife and conveyer belt aren't custom built either, but whatever - I prefer the knife to some retarded misshapen sword like the battle-arena levels that have been made, and the conveyer belt is functional and neccesary.

Great level. :) Loved the boss, although it was kinda tricky figuring out what to do after he was dead. Hearted!
