As the rustling leaves and spooky spectacle of Halloween fades in the lengthening winter nights...
Cold winds and snowflakes herald the approach of Christmas festivities ahead!

But something else is emerging from the shadows!
A brand spanking new, sparkling, seasonal Crown contest for everyone to enjoy some CREATE-SHARE-PLAY fun!

http://i375.photobucket.com/albums/oo195/liampatrickberry/ss1-1.jpg

we're extremely pleased to deliver the first major Crown Contest to be co-hosted by two fun filled fan sites!
The winner will receive a shiny LBP crown to add to their Christmas decorations and two...yes TWO!! Exclusive in game winners pins!


- Creators are required to create an original previously unpublished level of any genre combining all the best elements of the two seasonal celebrations. Halloween hobgoblins and happy elves, platforming pumpkins and partying penguins all come together to share the fun!

-The level must have gameplay/scoring elements.

-one level slot/thermo per entry. No level-linking of any kind.

- Originality is the name of the game. That means Nightmare Before Christmas or generic zombie survival levels will be sternly frowned upon!

-Register your participation here or on LittleBigNetwork and publish your level between friday 14th- mon 17th December including the prefix SSCC at the start of your level title.

-runner up prizes for players and some other surprises in store too!

Have fun and feel free to post any questions in this thread.




FAQs

If I build a level with a friend, does my friend get a crown too?
The account on which the winning level is published gets the crown, but the two exclusive pins can be arranged for both you and your friends.

Is this contest for LBP Vita?
It's just for LBP2 (or LBP1) on the PS3. There will be some contests for Vita in the new year.

Are participants required to sign up on both sites?
No. You can register your participation in the contest here on LBN, or on LBPC, or on both sites if you feel like it.

Are short cutscene intros alright as long as they're not split through level links?
Yes, that would be fine.

How much scary can I be?
Remember the game's rating.

As originality will be one of the judging criteria try and avoid any ' Nightmare before Christmas' tributes as it could infringe copyright and ruin any chance of a MM pick as well.

Enter because it's fun to challenge yourself, working under pressure of a deadline could bring out your best :)

And for anyone who felt discouraged by the technical requirements of LBPC9, but still itching to create, should consider this contest. I'm excited about this!

Nightmare Before Christmas is a good example of the two holiday themes combined, but this contest is for an original creation - so the winning level cannot be too heavily based on a film (or tv show, book, etc).
Also keep in mind that if you'd like to be eligible for an MM pick, there can be no risk of copyright violation ;)

Confusion aside, this contest sounds like it would be right up my alley. Spooky, yet cheery themes are perfect for the way I make my visuals. :D

Question: Its a christmas level: Last year everyone of the top 3 of lbpc6 got recieved the central pin, will the top 3 recieve the pins this time, too?

3 teams got the pins because of the sheer size of what we asked, basically 4 people had to realize 4 levels in 2 months.
We made LBPC6 during the X-Mas period to be able to be that generous.
We have already 2 pins, one Crown...

A Santa themed Midas level may or may not be released and it may or may not be serious. It depends how much free time I have as I'm already working on a LBP2 level and a Vita level and I have exams on top of that around the time of the deadline. I dunno, seems fun though.

If I upload the level onto alternative account on but on the same system as my main account, could I make arrangement if I were to win so my main got the crown not the alt (I usually put seasonal level on a separate planet)?

If you were to win you would be sent a code for the Crown to redeem in the PS Store. it would be up to you which account you used to do that. :)

If I win, which I highly doubt, I have a problem. When I created my account, I used the account to check out Japanese games. So the store is in Japanese. AND, My brother, who's 24 now, had started that account with an email that he doesn't even remember. If I win, which I highly doubt, could I give you MY email so you can send it to that? I could still find my way to the search bar and look for the English numbers

I'm pretty sure that other people with accounts on your PS3 also get the Crown. They wouldn't have the pin though, so it would clear that they hadn't been awarded the Crown themselves. That might affect your arrangement with the alt account publishing too.

In the past we have been able to send people crown codes via PM on this site. I expect something similar could be arranged if you win. However, isn't DLC region locked? Would you need a Japanese Crown code too? That might be possible to fix too but let's cross that bridge when we get there. :) Good luck in the contest anyway!

How do you enter the competition? Do you just publish the level or do you have to Sign up somewhere?

------------------------------

Answer:



-Register your participation here or on LittleBigNetwork and publish your level between friday 14th- mon 17th December including the prefix SSCC at the start of your level title.


As long as you include "(SSCC)" in your level's title and post a lbp.me link on one of the sites mentioned you'll be fine as we can find it.

I also see your new and this is your first post,


so on behalf of the contest crew, welcome to Central


tip:

If you need further assistance; edit another question onto this post under this answer. Please don't create a new post unless somebody different creates a message after this one. The mods (blue names) will remove a post if a single user makes two in a row as it helps to keep the place tidy, so editing will save everybody some time.

We don't have the power to ban people, if someone is giving you bother on central that is a private matter between you and the mods. If it is in game we can do nothing at all as it would be up to the good grief system. Needless to say no judge would post a message like that so it is a false threat and you will not be disqualified.

I have a question. It appears I am making music specificly for two different entries, and co-creating with a third. Is this aloud? PLEASE SAY YES!! MUSIC IS NOTHING!!

Also, I have learned that a certain judge (Cekmeout) has a grudge against the guy I'm co-creating with (Ucroburst)? Just want to be assured that this won't affect our chances of winning. Thanks!

Finally, can I have 2-3 cutscenes in our level? (The Intro, the confrontation with the boss [that's if I am actually going to make a boss], after the boss/outro.)

you'd need to ask the network crew instead of us, but I suspect they wouldn't let anyone on their team who would judge unfairly, needless to say that you won't have any problems with Central.

-----------------------------------------------

as for helping with three entries (two music, one co-create) you can help them, put in the interest of fair judging you must choose a side before the deadline that you want to be associated with... we can't have you officially representing 3 entries, it just wouldn't be fair.

*LOADS GUN*

Lets do this. :kz:

Seriously, I'm giving this a try.... and are minigames/survival challenges allowed? Didn't see anything 'bout that.

EDIT: Anyone want to do this with me?

I'm doing a mini-game, so they better be allowed. There was nothing in the rules that said it couldn't be. :)

do you register between 14th and 17th or before then.

Taken directly from the rules written on the very first post:


Register your participation here or on LittleBigNetwork and publish your level between friday 14th- mon 17th December including the prefix SSCC at the start of your level title.

please guys, read the rules carefully as they do contain the answers you're looking for.

Why is it difficult to understand?

The rule states that you must register AND the level should be published between the two dates. The order in which you do each action is irrelevant but publishing first would allow you to post a lbp.me link on your registration post.

No you weren't bugging us, we simply asked why it was difficult to understand because that helps us write better contest briefs in the future.

Here is a calculator for working out your deadline in relation to GMT:

http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc

Note: you must check the 'use the following date / time' box or this will not work

1. Select december in month
2. Type in 17 and 2012 for day and year
3. Type 23:59 for time and check the 24 hour box
4. Select Gmt in first pull down menu
5. Select your timezone in the second drop down menu
6. Press 'Convert time now'
7. Deadline will appear in your time in a blue box above the fields you just filled in

ah, well 00:00 (24h GMT) on the 14th is the very earliest time possible for publishing.

Once again, if you need that converted into a different timezone use the calculator above.

A key tip being, if you want to guarantee you're publishing on time, publish on the 15th or 16th (anywhere in the world) and you won't hit the start on end times but be nicely in the middle.

I might enter this. But there is a big chance I won't win. Perhaps I could help others who need it?

At this point most people have finish and are probably just testing there levels and debugging them. I think you should make a level but have your eyes set on having fun. and if you win something that can be a bonus. if you lose, you would of at least enjoyed your self
