Hey sackfoooooooolks!
Long time no see!
Are you still excited for the release of the Muppet Pack?
Because maybe we can help you make your most crazy experiments worth a prize :)

http://www.lbpcentral.com/images/LBPCC-7.jpg

First of all, as always it's the moment to say thanks.
Thanks OCK, Joey, TehUberZac, Thegide, Mr_T-Shirt, Leather-Monkey and Moleynator.
It has been a hell of a ride, lots of fun, I would like to spend more than a line for each one of you, to thank you how you deserve it, though this is not the place.
You're all awesome and you will all be terribly missed.
The Crew wish you all the best you can desire :)

Though, as many left...other awesomeness joins the Crew.
We're proud to have now in our crew no less than Leklack, LittleBigDes, Rialrees and Biorogue.
So you sackfolk can be sure that the amount of amazing stuff will keep on coming :)

Back to the contest...dim the lights, drumroll, please!
Have you guys got it in you to put on a great show?
We want you to stage the biggest, most insane, jawdropping show in Craftworld.
Lights...camera...revolution!!!
We want to dress up as singers, dancers, tumblers and go through vivid, colourful shows!
It can be a circus, a live concert, opera/theatre, an imaginary show...but put all your craziness in it.

So, where will your imagination send us?

Building requirements

• Create a level experience of your choice, with intense gameplay, and special attention to a spectacular show setting, ongoing background action, and colourful environments.
• You can OPTIONALLY build a themed, fitting minigame inside the level.
• The level must include gameplay so no movie levels, please!

How to enter

• Build a level before the deadline that fits the contest description and building requirements.
• Include the text “(LBPC7)” in the title of the level. Don’t forget to add things like a nice looking badge, some tags, and a concise level description.
• Publish your levels before 11:59PM GMT on 29th February, 2012.
• Post LBP.me links to your levels in this thread, so we’re sure not to miss them!
• After the deadline, the judges will put on their glad rags and select up to ten semi-finalists based on the scoring criteria below. The creator of the best level will be pinned/crowned winners!

Judging criteria

Levels will be judged according to the following criteria:
• Gameplay – Here, we’re scoring things like fun factor, balanced difficulty and freedom from glitches and bugs.
• Originality – How innovative is your creation? How well did you take the source material to create something unique yet still have it be recognizable?
• Visuals – This is all about how good your level looks. We like detail and lighting and special effects, but try to avoid graphics-induced lag!
• Audio – Sound effects and music are a great way to turn your level into an addictive and immersive experience.

Rules and Regulations

• This contest is open to all ages and all regions. That means anyone can participate!
• All entries must be playable in LittleBigPlanet 2
• You can only enter one level. Duplicate entries will result in disqualification.
• The contest officially begins on 1st February, 2012 at 12:00am GMT. Previously published entries will not be accepted.
• Levels must be published before the deadline with “(LBPC7)” in their title. After the deadline, do not republish. Levels republished after the deadline will be disqualified. Exceptions may be made for quick fixes with respect to level titles, description, badges, or major game-breaking fixes, but only with the prior consent of the contest crew. If you need to request an edit, please post in this thread and send me a PM.
• Levels must be your own creation. Feel free to take inspiration from the world around you and from other levels, but don’t copy someone else’s work outright! That’s just not cool….
• Last but not least, have fun, play fair and respect other creators!


Also a little Handy FAQ for you all


Q: Can I enter a previously published level?
A: No.

Q: Can I enter a level I already have on my moon, but hasn't yet been published?
A: Yes.

Q: Once I've published my entry, can I republish it?
A: You can republish it as many times before the deadline as you like, but not after the deadline.

Q: When will the judging begin?
A: The judges may take a look at some levels prior to the deadline, but the judging proper will not begin until after the deadline.

Q: When will the results be posted?
A: We can't really give any accurate answer to this, but it will be no more than a month after the judging begins.

Good luck everyone!

Hope you'll enjoy this contest as you did for the other ones.
I'm really anxious to see what people will do with the new tools.
This is very really much inspired by the Muppet pack.
A great pack stuffed with fun gameplay, but I'm 100% sure that some of the still unrecognized geniouses in our Community will be able to top those levels. :)

Also, personally I want to thank again OCK, Joey, TehUberZac, Thegide, Mr_T-Shirt, Leather-Monkey and Moleynator.
Most of them were here from day one and helped so much to shape the Contest Crew to what it is.
Maybe they weren't around blabbering so much like I do, but I assure you that the love and passion they put in this little "service" was second to none.
Love ya guys! <3
Whenever you want to join again our arms are wide open to welcome you again :)

Though the Muppets Level Pack is an obvious inspiration for this contest and pretty helpful for a lot of broadway stage related sounds, background, objects and decorations, don't forget you can go very far (and original) with vanilla LBP1+2 and other DLC, too. For instance, the MGS pack has a spotlight that can serve as stage lights and here is a pic of stage beams made out of ordinary metal material and rods.

http://i8.lbp.me/img/ft/59846c5142a954ff5a2239400e9522321d15b071.jpg

However, maybe you don't want to reveal much of a stage at all. After all, when a play or an act is sufficiently engaging, you, the audience/player forget you are in a theatre looking at cardboard backgrounds. Then again, obvious cardboard stage props might be exactly the kind of feel you are looking for.

Just throwing this out here.

Do you think you can translate something like Cirque Du Soleil, a Broadway musical, a rock concert into a level?

Microhamster
02-01-2012, 03:53 PM
Hmmmm.... I get the whole level bit, but the moving background?

OmegaSlayer
02-01-2012, 04:08 PM
Since most of the shows are kept in closed theatre/envyronments the background are changed/swapped, the lights changes, since they're part of the illusion of the show.
Think about this

Microhamster
02-01-2012, 04:20 PM
I see what your getting at, but that statement will limit platformers... :(

Edit: eh, leave it... Usually o have about 30 ideas... Ive got none for this, of I don't get any in the next few days I won't do it.... I had high hopes for this.... Not blaming you, it's my fault for not getting ideas >:O

Do I see a Sacks Off, Dance Off sequel? Well maybe not, but if I can clear my plate a little bit and hold off on my current venture I could do this. I'll just try not to think to far outside of the box on this competition, that seems to not work. What am I saying my will be different as always. (time to make time, but how do you create time?)

"You can only enter one level. Duplicate entries will result in disqualification."


BTW whats the price? Crowns and pins? Or this time its only 1 pin 1 crown?

"The creator of the best level will be pinned/crowned winners!"

Fairly certain that it's only one pin/crown.... but I'll check to be on the safe side.


So are we allowed platformers, or does it need to be one set that can change out backgrounds.

"Create a level experience of your choice, with intense gameplay, and special attention to a spectacular show setting, ongoing background action, and colourful environments."

It can be anything you want as long as it focuses on some sort of gameplay.

Ooooooh, dunno. Being as Leather and Moley have sadly gone, the future of the videos doesn't look too bright. Not 100% on this either, sorry. will check.

OmegaSlayer
02-02-2012, 07:03 AM
I confirm everything Ria said 100%.
Again, the crew stubborness about single levels is because they don't work well in multiplayer and we all know that LBP is more fun with friends.

For the video, we like to keep promises, so at the moment, we're not 100% sure to be able to offer the service.
Though it might arrive as a gift :)

Umm, hi.
I wonder if my friends can help me, please. and if I win, they will receive a crown too (my friends)?
Thanks.

And one more thing, I want to know the crew will also take into account the packs that the person has or not.

Sorry for my english, I used Google translate. '-'

shropshirelass
02-02-2012, 04:05 PM
Hi cakito

You can certainly get some help from your friends but I'm afraid that, as this is not a co-create contest, there is only one Crown and pin on offer. This will be awarded to the PSN account under which the level is published.

It is not compulsory to use any particular DLC so if you don't have the Muppet pack, for example, that's fine. The levels will be judged purely on the things we listed in the rules, visuals, gameplay etc. So it's just up to creators to be imaginative with whatever DLC they happen to have.

Your English is fine btw - for once google translate worked properly, lol! :p

Im excited.. This will be the first contest I enter, as Replacing my system took a few months. I had one question, which I am almost certain would be okay, but figured would be best to ask just-in-case. It says a level wrapped around a show. Would it be ok if, for example with a play, that the different acts/scenes were throughout the level. As you watch ACT 1, then some gameplay leading to the stage for ACT 2. It would make scene changes and maybe even costume changes 100% simpler.

Just a question as I have numerous ideas on stand-by for this one.

grayspence
02-04-2012, 05:17 AM
Daaaarn. Creator's block at the WORST possible moment... I've got 6 characters and no ideas. Maybe its because of the un matching materials...
REALLY hope I can produce something for this, the contest being judged heavily on visuals and gameplay is right up my alley.

That sounds absolutely fine, SL33P3RHLD, but we wouldn't want the only gamepllay to be just very small bits moving between the different Acts with the rest being all cinematics. We had in mind that there would be more gameplay than cinematics in these levels. For example, the player platforms through the show amongst the scenery and actors etc or takes part in the show somehow by doing tumbling or if it's a concert you could have the player plaforming in and out of huge speakers or musical instruments. These are only examples but It's a question of getting the balance between gameplay and any cinematics right and not relying very heavily on the cinematics. We do want to be able to play these levels and not just watch them. :)

Hope that helps.

One of the worse thing about being a judge is that sometimes you have to say no to your friends.
You can't visit them while they create a new masterpiece, you can't help them with ideas, you can't play their levels before the deadlines. :(

It has to be based of a show, I don't think that fits, they want something like a circus, musical or production. And i know what I'm making, and ATM it's going ok, might upload some pics if I can be bothered :s

I wouldn't say anything could be held against you (so long as it didn't go against EULA), but remember what Hammy said above about the guidelines for the contest - we're looking for a show, spectacle, performance, JAZZ HANDS!!

So if you're moving through a play (for example) called "A society against tomorrrow", with clive speaking his part whilst you protect him from his attackers, or you run through the factory whilst singing sackbots (mercy) -perform a synchronised dance.... then, yeah, all is cool.

I'd also like to add that as a judge we cannot play anyone's level until after the deadline. No matter what stage your level is at or if you want us to check it out or send us a key to see if it fits in with the competition's theme. This is so we are not biased in any way or seen as favouritism towards a player. We'd like to remain neutral until we have played the finished levels.

So make sure you read the guidelines and investigate the theme by reading through the thread as there are some good questions and answered already covered. As a brief summary it can be based around the theme 'It's showtime' with gameplay. For example a theatre, stage show, acts, ongoing background action (theatre shows change their backgrounds & lights), and colourful environments. But not movie levels. More examples include, Cirque Du Soleil, a Broadway musical, a rock concert into a level. Feel free to expand on it and get creative.

If you're entering good luck.

I shall now compile a list of all the questions asked and their respective answers so that you guys don't have keep scrolling through the thread. As new questions are asked and answered, I'll add them to keep updating this FAQ


Q: Can someone please explain what we have to do to me...i really am stumped on the criteria..
A: Do you think you can translate something like Cirque Du Soleil, a Broadway musical, a rock concert into a level? Since most of the shows are kept in closed theatre/envyronments the background are changed/swapped, the lights changes, since they're part of the illusion of the show.Think about this

Q: whats the prize? Crowns and pins? Or this time its only 1 pin 1 crown?
A: "The creator of the best level will be pinned/crowned winners!"

Q: Can I use sub-levels for this so I could have 1 level for the intro and one for the gameplay?
A: "You can only enter one level. Duplicate entries will result in disqualification."

Q: If my friends help me and we win, will they get crowns too?
A: Only if you print one out off the internet and pin it to their shirt. There will only be one crown/pin awarded to the person who published the level.

Q: Can I use level links?
A: No. Only ONE level allowed.


Like I said, as more questions come in I'll keep updating this and will try to keep my weird, smart butt humor out of it.

Just to back up Rtoo's post, from the building requirments:

'You can OPTIONALLY build a themed, fitting minigame inside the level'

This implies that the level itself can't be purely a minigame but it may include one.

It should be done a couple of days before the deadline, because I'm going to have get the background, get some people to help, and lots more stuff.






It should be done by the 25th, I just do not know when it could be done.

No you don't need to own the Muppets pack. But it is based around the theme of 'Putting on a show' which is inspired by the theme in the muppets pack since it has a stage setting. For example post number 8 on the first page of this thread has a set up with ideas without using the muppets pack.

So if you don't have the muppets pack you can still enter as all sorts of things are possible to construct with or without it. Hope that makes sense/helps. Good luck if you're entering.

I can't 100% guarantee this as unfortuntely I'm not a member of the contest crew but past contests have allowed use of the move, just keep in mind you are limiting who can play / complete your level if you do. I'm sure an official crew member will comfirm or deny soon for you though.

While playing some entries, I noticed a few levels which broke rules, such as using level links. Guess I'm just trying to say, just do a quick rule check before publishing. It would be a real shame if your hard work was not counted because there's some good ideas so far.

They have allowed the use of 3d before... if it's not in the rules it's not forbidden. Just remember, the purpose of these contests is to stimulate your imagination to create unique ideas.

Sadly i'd love to be able to give you a certain answer but I'm not a member of the crew. Hopefully someone will comfirm for you soon though.

From experience I know that 3D layers are absolutely fine, I've used them in a couple of contest entries now. Just keep in mind, if your 3D is too complex it may cause laggy visuals which is something the rules say to avoid.

Good luck with your level.

Hello sackpeople, I have a question: Is it okay to use "Broadway" in the title? Is that a copywritten name, or public domain because it's a street? I just want to make sure before submitting. In general, does it matter either way to use copywritten names? I can't tell you how many Mario, Zelda, Ghostbusters, etc levels I've seen. A contest may be different though?

ForgottenEnigma
02-22-2012, 05:44 PM
I doubt the contest crew would mark you down for using broadway but if you want to play it safe, maybe change it slightly and make it a parody of the name (eg narrowway).

On another note, remember these contests are designed to stimulate your imagination... so if you make up a new street name, it might be advantageous... food for thought =)

It's fine if you just post the link after you've finished and published the level. :)

In fact Aya has a program which searches lbp.me for levels with the contest reference in the title (LBPC7 in this case) and produces a list of entrants after the deadline has passed. If you're worried you can simply check that list after the deadline to make sure your level is included.

If creators are not wise enough to keep their creations under wrap, we can't do anything.


So, better be careful when you show your level to someone.
We can't have unfailable proof of any kind thus we can't disqualify anyone.
We're sorry, but you have to be mature and responsible.

When will the next contest apply another gameplay restriction like LBPC1 did?

True creativity comes as you narrow the focus of what one can do, and I'll gladly participate in a contest that isn't just a silly theme.

I know what you mean, but there are lots of creators who want something a bit more open ended, to give them some room to breathe I suppose. :) who knows what the future contests may hold? ;)

Well, the Contest Crew probably does. :B

In any event, should be interesting what comes up next. I need to be inspired enough to make a spiritual successor to Wu Tsung Sky.

I'm so looking forvard for this contest :love:

Well, I don't have much time though... :frightened: But still, I will try my best! Here is just few questions....

1. Do you post entries in this thread?
2. Will you need Muppets Level Kit to entry?

I'd be glad if someone can answer these :rolleyes:

AND OF COURSE, IT WOULD BE AWESOME TO BE :royalty: !! :hatsack:

02-26-2012, 10:57 AM
Yep, post your level link here and you don't need to use the Muppets pack at all. Anything else is acceptable.:)

02-26-2012, 04:43 PM
So is there going to be a contest every month or every other month lol?

ForgottenEnigma
02-26-2012, 04:48 PM
I believe they said a new arrangment will be brought in that allows minimum contests running between fansites every month... this is so more people enter each contest. So I wouldn't expect one every month. However I'm pretty sure lbpc8 will still be in March.

With escape the level you mean, falling outside of the gameplay area?

With "level escapeing" best way is to ask the guy who escaped how he did, i alos got escapers in In-Side-Out, but no body cared to tell me how :p theu i don't care myself too since it seems rare random bug
