View Full Version : Top of Cool Pages = Team Pick

11-09-2012, 02:02 AM
It seems as if Tarsier only plays the top levels on the cool pages, and then they pick the very best one. I think they should try to play more levels from the forums along with the cool pages. There are some great levels on the forums that NOBODY notices because they were't on the cool pages. Tarsier needs to focus on both. Anyone agree?

Actually, I think they are doing a decent job with it. The latest team pick, the Pachyderm one, was chosen straight off these forums when it had very few plays.

Edit: Although I'm still amazed that some of the levels from earlier on (Space Corp ReVITAlized comes to mind) are not team picked.

I think its actually the other way around Team Pick = Top of cool pages.

When a level gets team picked it quickly rises to the top of cool pages from plays.

Well, it does prove to be a bit harder to get attention on Vita at the moment, but I think that's only 'cause the community's a little smaller for now. I'd just recommend the same routine for getting your level in the limelight as in LBP and LBP2. Chris has a good point with the elephant level (my brother is addicted to that level btw), and I also think Tarsier's been doing a great job managing the community so far, of course ignoring all of the annoying H4Hs and P4Ps at the bottom of the pages.

I think the team picks have been good so far. There are a few that I though deserved one and did not get in, like Space Corps. How did that not get a pick?

MrObychek's level got picked, that made my day. Glad to see that guy get some attention.

I highly doubt that- As most of the time 80% of "the cool levels" are p4p and some that have been in the top for a while never made it to the TPs.

They also regularly promote the LBPC spotlight in the 'Activity' section of LBP Vita on the Live Area. Tarsier seem to be doing a fantastic job sharing new levels with the community in my opinion.

I was actually wondering... who does the team picks?
Is it Tarsier or Media Molecule?
Didn't they use the same level designers?
Or do they both select them for lbpv and lbp2?

We (Tarsier) do. Only for LBPV, of course, because that's the game we made. :)

I'm not sure how level designers fit into this discussion, but no. A fresh batch of level designers was used for LBPV. They are 100% organic and gluten free!

More than traces in some cases.

How does Tarsier go about picking levels that they think should be selected... By which I mean how do they find them?

The same way everyone finds good levels; by playing levels.

Usually by doing a search for the Highest Rated levels of the day on vita.lbp.me (http://vita.lbp.me/search?t=highest_rated&d=day), keeping track of what levels are mentioned on Twitter (I run a constant search for LittleBigPlanet and LBPVita so if your tweets contain either of those words I will probably see them), using the Lucky Dip function, or by looking on forums such as this one and other non-LBP forums.

That is better than just looking at Cool Levels I suppose. #LBPVita seems the best way to find levels that might be obscure otherwise, and easier than sorting through the heaps of threads here. I tweet a bit here and there. So do many of us. This is a good plan on your part.
