Greetings! Allow us to introduce ourselves: we are LBPCentral's new Contest Crew, and we're here to get your creative cogs turning with new monthly(ish) LBP contests! We've all been working hard to get this in motion, and we're excited to finally be able to announce it to the community!

Our goal for each contest is to provide you with opportunities to exercise your creativity, show off your work, and maybe win some prizes in the process. The folks at Mm tell us that there might be something... shiny in it for our winners as well, so you probably shouldn't miss out!

Anyways, enough talk. We'll be kicking things off with our first official contest: the "No-Floor Platformer" challenge. We've got more information on what it is and how to enter immediately below.

Thanks, and we look forward to your entry!

Sincerely,

Leather-Monkey, Moleynator, Mother-Misty, OCK, OmegaSlayer, RockSauron, Shropshirelass, TehUberZac, Thegide, and Mr_T-Shirt.

Clarification on the use of controllinators

The rules state that "use of controllinators is forbidden". There are a few possible interpretations of this, however, we have agreed that this rule pertains to sackboy. Sackboy may not use controllinators in any form, whether in the DCS or not. Anything not covered by this interpretation is fair game. Hope that helps to alleviate some confusion!

FAQs


can jetpacks on sackbots be good?

The rules state that jetpacks are not allowed, so we're sticking with that.

Besides, Sackbot's can't use jetpacks. :p


I have a question about the use of controllinators. Can we use them if they are used in a sackbot remote control that kills the player if the bot dies? Because I have one of those I was planning on using so that water is by definition lethal.

The rules state controllinators may not be used. Due to several inquiries on the interpretation of this rule, we have clarified it here. The use of controllinators applies to sackboy only, who may not use them in any form.

Thanks..


Gravity tweaking is acceptable, yes.



Just wondering though, if I want to enter (not sure if I do yet), would I be allowed? Since I was kinda one of the people who the contest was leaked to about a week ago, we technically could have started our contest entries and gotten an unfair head start. I promise I haven't, I just don't want to enter and then get turned down because I could have cheated. If not, I'll think about entering the next one, since I have no idea what that one is.


Yes, you can, since we have change some rules since you had a peek, and you have been fair and honest




Now, I have a really nice idea for a level to enter this contest with, but does the fact I already have a crown stop me from entering? In the unlikely event that I win, you could always give it to the runner up :p

If some crowned guy competes and wins, we can give the crown to the runner up.
It's a very nice and kind thing, totally within the spirit of the contest.


How many judges are going to play the level at the same time while it is being judged?

A fair number, don't worry
The crew is big enough


Is this too big for a safety zone?
http://i9.lbp.me/img/ft/5b9e2de2a6a1c05b6ff966f459cdc6e0c624f0f3.jpg

What you have there is quite a bit larger than "just big enough". Tell you what, if you can shrink it down a teeny bit and stick within the guidelines for the rest of the level, I think we can allow it.


..........a remote controlled sackbot is excepted as a vehicle even tho it dies in the same ways as sackboy does and more besides? never mind..... i was gunna do him as a sackbot so you wear a specific costume that's all :/
ok i have a freaky level planned.

The sackboy must keep his feet in the air...just remember this
Sackboy may not use a controllinator in any form, which means he is prohibited from controlling a sackbot.


Can we make an entrance where you walk to a start point or it's really from A to B no feet?

Small safety zones where sackboy can touch the ground are allowable at the entrance, at checkpoints, and the scoreboard. Think the width of a few checkpoints. The spirit of the contest is to keep sackboy off his feet, so the less walking, the better.
You might want to consider placing the entrance gate at the start point

Quick question about a few things.

Are we not allowed to publish locked to the community for testing purposes? I could test my level 100 times and not find something broken, but I've noticed that when a friend plays it they tend to find broken things within either their first or second testing. I guess they could join me on my moon....never mind this.

Are we allowed to use controlinators set to the "closest player" setting or whatever so that the player could remotely control certain things? I've got some neat ideas, and they don't involve vehicles. :P I understand why you want us to not use them, but is it possible that they can only be limited slightly?

We thought long and hard about the rules for this one, and believe me when I say it was not easy. While I'm sure there are many ways a controllinator could be acceptable, we decided against their use so as to avoid having questionable applications that border on violating the rules. Accordingly, we are sticking to the contest rules as they appear in the poster. Besides, if sackboy is sitting in the DCS, then he's not off his feet, is he?

Congrats to the LBPC Contest Crew for finally getting this out there to the community! Hopefully this will be the skip in our stride that we need to get things rolling in a really fun direction again!

I wish you all the best of luck with your endeavours (and sleepless nights of playing and judging from what I'm sure will yield some fantastic levels)!!

Great job you guys! :)

Sackboy doesn't need to be in the DCS. He can remotely control it using that one setting that sets the controlinator to receiver, and whoever is closest to it can control whatever without entering it. However, I understand that allowing it in any form could raise the question of what's acceptable and I'd hate to see people look at this method being allowed, and then taking it too far to the point where they get disqualified and lose all their hard work. So no big deal. I'll just have to think of another way to do what I want to. xD

Exactly. We don't want to encourage people to risk a DQ. And there is always more than one way to do something in LBP. Thanks for understanding :)

a_mailbox
05-20-2011, 05:00 AM
i'm probably not going to enter because i don't have time, but if i do i just wanna ask...
so we can't even use a remote activated controlinator for specific puzzles? like the player can control something w/o getting into a controlinator?

edit: just read the post above :p
but i would like this answered, even though i expect it to be a no.

Thanks people for the feed!
I hope this little project will make people happy and offer the chance to everyone to show up their amazing skills and creativity.
We do really expect BIG and COOL things, so don't disappoint us.

So I want to thanks in advance whoever will take insane amounts of sweat and headaches to aplly and partecipate.
GOOD LUCK!!!

We'll be very severe about the rules, we had figured out that there could have been ways to use jetpacks or Controllinators, but there would have been ways to use them as a lame exploit.
This would only have created frustration, so we have levelled the field.
We know you guys can make awesome stuff anyway and there will be many other chances to showacse your ideas, so please stick with us.

Then thanks to the awesome people in the crew.
To you I say, let's work hard and deliver.

This is gonna be so cool. Great Idea. Great idea. Let's see if we can translate that into game play.

Can we have a brief "training" section we sackboy walks around, if our level involves a contraption of some sort?
Wait...

Hmmm... Darn it. Never mind I think...

By ruling out controlinators completely, you guys missed out on a lot of creative ideas instantly... Just saying. But, I'm still gonna think about this.

I just wanted to use a controlinator so that my face buttons could activate tags. But Sad face.

Thinking of other things I can do now...

Hey cool a real LBPC contest?? nice~
and lucky me i have a idea from the level i've been working on. no i won't use the level xD
i just have an idea from what i've been working on that works with this contest's idea is all.
but yeah think i may try to enter this :P but the level I'm working on i want to make first so...
we'll see if i can find the time after that. *mew

Great idea for a contest! Now comes the hard part - leave my personal project and actually enter one of these contests, or keep working on my own stuff? Hard to win a crown if you never enter... decisions, decisions.

Either way, one of the better contests I've seen offered. It ensures we will see some unique levels!

Oh yeah question.
it's OK if NPC Sackbots have DCS in them long as your not controlling the bot right?
I would need it so i can make the bot use R1 and some stuff for it's A.I.
Also would a sackbot holding/tossing you for set somes of time be called a Vehicle?
even if you don't control it? and is dropping the sackperson in a cannon be OK?
even tho it's standing inside of it? *mew

Consider that every "device" used to keep the sackboy off the floor is an exploit and is not according to the spirit of the contest.
Bouncepads are allowed, so a cannon is perfectly fine.
What I suggest is, remember the spirit of the contest and keep it fun :p

Since I was kinda one of the people who the contest was leaked to about a week ago, we technically could have started our contest entries and gotten an unfair head start. I promise I haven't, I just don't want to enter and then get turned down because I could have cheated. If not, I'll think about entering the next one, since I have no idea what that one is.

Oh, and this contest reminds me so much of the game everyone used to play when they were really young, "The floor is made of lava." :)

You have been really honest to say here what happens and I appreciate it. Kudos for that!
And you entering the private area was not your mistake, so I personally don't think it's fair to leave you out of the contest.
I'm in for giving you the chance to enter, in the friendly spirit of the competition, though the other contenders may not find it fair.
The crew will speak about it.

Really young? I played this at college with all my class a couple of weeks ago in my tutor room!

Good to see a fresh new competition for everyone to get busy with. I'll be sure to enter as long as I get the time and brain power to think up a clever gameplay idea. Good luck to everyone who is entering! :)

So like... is all we can do is swing around then? because from what you said nothing can is allowed to move us
besides jump pads like things.... i was just gonna have short moments where a sackbot floating from a balloon
on it's back would carry you here and there (not the whole time) but from the sounds of it,
we can only pad jump and wall climb/swing.... surely there's other ways too...
if not. that's kinda err... (>.>) *mew

Searching every day
Looking every way
Trying to make a connection
To find a piece of the action
Like a hungry poet
Who doesn't know
He is close to perfection
Choice is the question
Moonlight night after moonlight night
Side by side they will see us ride
But if they cared to look, then they would see
It's our return to fantasy, fantasy, fantasy
Fantasy, fantasy, fantasy

I've no idea what that means. but i get the feeling it means.
try and think for your self and good luck (._.) not really what i wanted to hear...
only other idea that comes to mind is what i said. Swing/pad jump/cannon/ Wall climb.
Meh... I'll still think about entering but i kinda lost my interest now. ahwell them the breaks~

You can't expect to have the coolest of the ideas day one ;)
Use your skills and imagination.
Before releasing the contest, we brainstormed and thought that there were very nice ways to use the concept.

If you say that "Swing/pad jump/cannon/ Wall climb" is boring, then it should be easier to have a twist on the concept.
Just think...how can I make a very simple thing very engaging, interesting and funny, how can I use my skills?

Well it's not that them ideas are boring... it all depends on what we do with them.
I'm almost never out of imagination, it's just i had a really fun idea i was wanting to do and found out i could not.
so yeah i can still think of other things just i was not wanting to try to hard as if i try to hard to get an idea
it's not fun for me anymore plus I'm busy on another level right now, and did not want to go to overly out of my way
for this contest. but yeah I'll still keep thinking, just i plan on to take it easy and think slowly.
to much thinking and trying to force an idea out well give anyone a headache.

There hasn't been a real contest for ages, and i missed them, so i'm glad to see them back.

Maybe an RPG contest?? lol.

What I like about this contest is that its aside from the usual. The people running it arent comph, morgana, poms, gevurah, and steve; its other, lesser known members of the community, banding together to make a great contest for anyone who wants to enter. It shows just how great and powerful this community can be, right here on LittleBigPlanetCentral.

(Nothing against those first mentioned great creators; theyre fantastic, it just seems that whenever famous lbpc stuff and crowns are involved, theyre there. I like a little change)

Having worked on and helped reboot another busy LBPC crew I know how hard and time-consuming something like this can be, and I'm so happy people are pouring their effort into the community to help others. You guys are awesome!

Now, I have a really nice idea for a level to enter this contest with, but does the fact I already have a crown stop me from entering? In the unlikely event that I win, you could always give it to the runner up :p

Thanks so much Hol!
Friendly encouragement and people enthusiasm is the best fuel/coffee we can EVER hope to have.
We all love this Community, it has given us so much that we felt it was our time to pay back :)

I take your point to mention that yes,
if some crowned guy competes and wins, we can give the crown to the runner up.
It's a very nice and kind thing, totally within the spirit of the contest.
Thanks for pointing that up!!!

I think this contest is too restricted.
With LBP2, the whole concept is to be able to make more than a platformer, I can't create platformers, but I am very good with other genres of LBP2 and don't think any contest should be restricted to just one genre of the game.

But, good luck with the contest to both those who are running it, and those who are entering it.

Clarification on the use of controllinators

The rules state that "use of controllinators is forbidden". There are a few possible interpretations of this, however, we have agreed that this rule pertains to sackboy. Sackboy may not use controllinators in any form, whether in the DCS or not. Anything not covered by this interpretation is fair game. Hope that helps to alleviate some confusion!

I hope you can appreciate that it would be very difficult, if not impossible, for us to try to standardize contest rules if we did not form some sort of guidelines. Trying to judge the winning level would be as difficult as comparing apples to oranges.

Every month we will be running a different contest; it won't be restricted to platformers. Next month might be a minigame challenge, or movie challenge. We hope you look forward to our future contests :)

This contest sounds pure GENIUS! I am entering for sure; I have an idea already which will probably change like the seasons. Still; its not whether you win or lose, its about having fun and about how you play the game.

I doubt I'll win but if I enter I may win the ever so rare prize crown and thats enough motivation to get me started.

If this is just the first contest I'm really looking forward to the contests to come; maybe a crazy twist on a racer. Well; whatever the case this contest is gonna ROCK more than a BOULDER.

If I win then WOOHOO; if not then I hope the winner enjoys their well earned crown. :)

Good luck everyone! :)

No, you may not. Because then sackboy would be using the controllinator, and the sackbot itself would be considered a vehicle.

What I like about this contest is that its aside from the usual. The people running it arent comph, morgana, poms, gevurah, and steve; its other, lesser known members of the community, banding together to make a great contest for anyone who wants to enter. It shows just how great and powerful this community can be, right here on LittleBigPlanetCentral.

(Nothing against those first mentioned great creators; theyre fantastic, it just seems that whenever famous lbpc stuff and crowns are involved, theyre there. I like a little change)

What RAWK said...but I see an entrance point, so if that's just the silence before the storm...
We encourage you to make the platforms with checkpoint small enough.
Obviously one square platforms are as bad as huge ones.

In my mind, "just big enough" would be approximately 3 widths of a checkpoint, or roughly between your two pillars adjacent your entrance gate.

What you have there is quite a bit larger than "just big enough". Tell you what, if you can shrink it down a teeny bit and stick within the guidelines for the rest of the level, I think we can allow it.

Fireblitz is going to reduce the size of his entrance area because it is too large. Try to stick with my recommendation (a few checkpoints wide), to be on the safe side.

If someone goes all out and tries to win this,( considering the competition ) that"s hardcore! I look forward to seeing what people will come up with in the next month as much as seeing my level complete and playable. I"m going to be a part of this for sure! Good luck to everyone, HAVE FUN and may the best monster win! :p

Sackboy may not use a controllinator in any form, which means he is prohibited from controlling a sackbot.

Thegide
05-21-2011, 06:48 PM
Small safety zones where sackboy can touch the ground are allowable at the entrance, at checkpoints, and the scoreboard. Think the width of a few checkpoints. The spirit of the contest is to keep sackboy off his feet, so the less walking, the better.

You might want to consider placing the entrance gate at the start point ;)

Errr... you not allow to touch the floor. Really, when you enter the level, *BAM!* soon you get out of the entry portal, you not allow to touch the floor? Or you just walk up to the bounce pad and then don't touch the floor unless it ends?

Ohhh, if Heisenberg would still be alive, he would have his socks knocked of by my level (physics jokes ftw :p)

I am curious about wether the use of something like a 30 to 80 degree slope with glass would be acceptable, since sackboy should not be able to stop on them when speeding onwards... Walls are legal, right? :gopher:

pivottt
05-21-2011, 08:08 PM
Dang, my idea doesn't work. I wanted to create a grappling hook by having two holoblocks follow the player, and when the player grabs, the other block is shot. When the block hits the wall, it stops. The grabbed block would then follow the other block. But it looks like sackboy is heavy and hologram isn't, so it is impossible to lift the player with hologram and movers. I would need a controlled sackbot...

I'll think about something else...

In my level's intro you slide down a hamster tube (you cannot move while your sliding down, since that part is a small cutscene) and when you slide out, you arrive at the safe zone. Is this okay? Because once you're at the safe zone you can't climb back up the tube, and you have no control while your sliding down as well.

i have a question: so im doing a level where you fly around to find a key to save da-vinci but(theres allways a but) i dont know if i can put a controllinator for sackboy to go on if not could i use a sackbot?

It's been said a thousand times, controlinators are not allowed. Even if its to remote a sackbot. There's a really small permission in the first post, but it says that sakboy must not be involved.

I find it very very unfortunate that some people entering a contest dont even read the freaking rules. Seriously people, comon. NO, you can NOT use controllinators.

I have started on my level and once again the themo is rising at a fast pace:devious:, so my question is...

Can i have it in two parts, linking together as one level? (i think the answer is probably yes but i need to check) and..

Is an elevator/lift within the rules? I make it small. (and again this is a yes im guessing...but if you don't ask ect)

Ok then, im off to create land and i will check back later. C ya.<3

You can level link if you wish, but keep in mind we're looking for about 5-10 minutes of gameplay.

Of course elevators are allowed, but that does not except them from the guidelines. Consider how sackboy interacts with the elevator.

now I know I can't use controllinators, but what if we use them to prohibit a move. for example: what if we have the player hanging on a ball, the screen cuts away, the player jumps into a controllinator that connects to a sackbot that has all of the abilities except letting go of the object he's grabbing (and the sackbot looks exactly like the player, size and all, including the world around him).

and yes, I did read the rules. twice. but you can never be truly sure until the question is asked.

Thanks for answering me Mr Thegide, i think i have everything all sorted out now.;)

5-10minutes of gameplay is dependant on the player though, i think.

My last level, i timed myself at about 6minutes but when new players tested it, it took them like 15mins at least to finish it lol.:rolleyes:

This will be the tricky part for me. Ok i won't bother you again, hopefully the next time you hear from me is when i send you my level link. Again Good luck everyone and may the best Droid win.;)

I really want to remark that it's better if you keep the pics and the details of your level from you.

First, because the crew really loves surprise and amazement, and we don't want to be spoiled at all.
We just want to have an indigestion of sick and awesome stuff.

Second, the crew wouldn't like to hear quarrels about copied ideas at the end of the contest.

How can we say no to such excitement?
Yeah you can link levels, we aimed at a target time because it was a fair length before gameplay could get repetitive, but if you guys have amazing ideas, go out full force!
Remember anyway that the levels will be judged as a single entity, so if one is weaker than the other, the overall score will suffer, so consider the risk.

That's why I suggested to not publish levels so early on.
It hasn't been wise on your side to show the level to a random guy.
You should have asked to one of your trusted friends.
I'm sorry I don't think we can disqualify someone for this reason, whatever you have proofs or not.
But we need it to discuss it in the crew.

Sackbots are allowed to use controllinators. Movies should be fine too, since we're primarily concerned with gameplay here. I've had a few people asking about intro movies anyways. Just remember to focus on what's important ;)

Quick questions, just to be sure. I think the answer is obvious, but it's just to check : When the levels will come into the judge's hands, "10 minutes of awesome gameplay" can be as good as "5 minutes of awesome gameplay" ? And "5 minutes of awesome gameplay" are better than "5 minutes of awesome gameplay and 2 minutes of boring gameplay" ?

In other words, does the quantity matters in any way ? Or Is it all about quality ?

Thanks for your answer !

Question! The rules say cutscenes are allowed, and I have a little intro at the beginning of the level (about 8 seconds) where as the cutscene is playing, sack boy is on a lift (out of sight and uncontrollable) that takes you down, allowing a scrolling intro. The bottom of the lift is then destroyed at the end and sack boy is no longer "stationary" and the level continues on...

So, this is acceptable, right, seeing as it's a cutscene?

This would be acceptable yes. The rules are simply in place to keep the gameplay on the right track.

If the checkpoint is there, then it passes as a safety zone. Just don't forget what the contest is all about... keeping sackboy off his feet.

See above. It's not against the rules to use the creatinator, but in that video, the device appears to make temporary flooring that is non lethal and is giving sackboy a safe surface to walk across... The aim of the contest is to keep sackboy off his feet and in the air (hint: see the gameplay and originality sections of the poster).

FAQs



The rules state that jetpacks are not allowed, so we're sticking with that.

Besides, Sackbot's can't use jetpacks. :p



The rules state controllinators may not be used. Due to several inquiries on the interpretation of this rule, we have clarified it here. The use of controllinators applies to sackboy only, who may not use them in any form.

The rules state that "use of controllinators is forbidden". There are a few possible interpretations of this, however, we have agreed that this rule pertains to sackboy. Sackboy may not use controllinators in any form, whether in the DCS or not. Anything not covered by this interpretation is fair game. Hope that helps to alleviate some confusion!



Gravity tweaking is acceptable, yes.



Yes, you can, since we have change some rules since you had a peek, and you have been fair and honest



If some crowned guy competes and wins, we can give the crown to the runner up.
It's a very nice and kind thing, totally within the spirit of the contest.



A fair number, don't worry
The crew is big enough



What you have there is quite a bit larger than "just big enough". Tell you what, if you can shrink it down a teeny bit and stick within the guidelines for the rest of the level, I think we can allow it.



The sackboy must keep his feet in the air...just remember this
Sackboy may not use a controllinator in any form, which means he is prohibited from controlling a sackbot.



Small safety zones where sackboy can touch the ground are allowable at the entrance, at checkpoints, and the scoreboard. Think the width of a few checkpoints. The spirit of the contest is to keep sackboy off his feet, so the less walking, the better.
You might want to consider placing the entrance gate at the start point

Also would you be able to make a menu using the controlinator as I'd like to add 10 levels and you select them in the menu and select the music if not that ok as you menstioned no use of controllnators.

I find it very very unfortunate that some people entering a contest dont even read the freaking rules. Seriously people, comon. NO, you can NOT use controllinators.

well thats my level idea gone pop :p

Another qustion from me! Can I make a small platform that when landed on shoots you back in the air? Like a bouncepad but not a bouncepad.

Ok before any one ask

"Why not just use a bouncepad?"

Reasons! It gives my level orignalilty and difrent.

We defined floor as any surface sackboy would be able to stand on if you were to put the controller down and walk away. If you're making a platform that does not allow sackboy to come to rest on it, then by this definition, it would not be considered floor and is allowable. Besides, it's keeping sackboy in the air, which is what the contest is all about :)


If you win the contest do you get emailed the dlc code :royalty: to the email registered to this website?
Also would you be able to make a menu using the controlinator as I'd like to add 10 levels and you select them in the menu and select the music if not that ok as you menstioned no use of controllnators.

I believe Spaff said he would send the DLC codes directly to the PSN accounts. I can check, but I would think your code would arrive in your PSN messages.

Question: Are level links allowed? Excuse me if this question has already been asked, I don't feel like looking at every single page and post in this thread to find it. :rolleyes:

hi

So I want to clarify can you use controlinators for a menu at the beginning or not?

Thanks

It's a platformer level anyway, why would you use a menu? and I believe not, since it is: SACKBOY CANNOOOOOT USE CONTROLINATORS. I believe

If its for a menu before your gameplay begins, it's allowable. Just remember, we're going to be scoring gameplay.

one quick question... why are there allowed to be teams when there is only one crown up for grabs? wouldnt that be un-fair?

and, does the no controllinators rule mean you cant use them if sackboy is getting in the controllinator, and could we use the closest player featuse since sackboy is actually not Using the controllinator :P just curious...

Teams are allowed in most contests, for a variety of reasons. However, the crown is only awarded to the PSN ID under which it was submitted. So if people really want to work in teams, they have to decide beforehand who would get the prize if they are chosen winner. From what I've seen, more people building a level does not necessarily make for a better level...teamwork has its drawbacks, too, and it's no more or less fair than one creator having twice as much free time to build his level as another player.

The closest player feature implies that sackboy is still controlling the controllinator, so that is prohibited as well.

is it ok to use platforms where if sackboy were to step on them, they would break and sackboy would fall into spikes or fire or something?

would it also be ok if they broke half a second after sackboy stood on them, giving him enough time to jump away?

Great competition guys :)

I think you can,

Judging by this post by Theguide which is loacted at the top of this thread.

If you're making a platform that does not allow sackboy to come to rest on it, then by this definition, it would not be considered floor and is allowable.

Remember the spirit of the competition. If sackboy touches ground, why even compite? You wont win any points that way.

Yay forDisney world! I'm going to Paris and Disneyland tomorrow! Anyhow, I was thinking of this: is it ok to have floor that sackboy actually touches, but canīt stand on, for example a road of ice, where sackboy is thrown on the ice, and slides from spot A to B, without any chance to actually stand still or walk the other way? Would be grateful to know :)

This has been really inspiring and I will definitely enter, but I have a question. Is it allowable for sackbots, specifically boss/enemy ones to use controllinators that sack boy can't use?

Chaos_Martin

@Mr MoneyPenny
Do you mean like a slope? hmmm, that one one im not sure about, but if was a betting man i'll place my money on the answer no, because sackboy is touching the floor and the floor is making him move.

@colorandlight
I think the answer is yes. I THINK, as long as Sackboy dosn't interact with the Controliator.
