Thanks to all who've entered, we look forward to playing your levels.

Here's a montage of Eye Candy Screenshots (http://benjaminstaub.com/LBPC_Eye_Candy_Screenshot_Montage.html) from LBP2 and Vita

Eye Candy!

Hey everyone! We’re back with a new contest, not a Crown contest this time but something smaller scale and fun. There are so many gifted artists and designers in the Community and we wanted to see what you could all do when freed from the constraints of having to create gameplay. So this contest is intended to showcase that artistic talent.

Create a scene, purely visual without any gameplay. Use a single camera to show the entire scene all at once. Design your scene with maximum attention to detail - this is a chance to spend the entire thermometer on just a small area! This contest is for both LBP2 and LBP Vita entries. An LBPC pin and a $20 PSN card (or its nearest equivalent in other currencies) will be awarded to the winner of each category (i.e. LBP2 and Vita).

Chose from one of the following themes and let your imagination run wild:

- Architecture
- Fantasy
- Historical
- Industrial
- Mythology
- Nature
- Silhouette
- Space

Updates

A level without gameplay: You are allowed to have the player spawn and then walk a short distance to reach the scene, however this should be very simple and we will only judge the fixed camera scene.
Also, the player can automatically enter a Controllinator seat. This can be made invisible if you don't want the player to be seen at all.
Or, you can make the level a Cutscene. This way the player won't even spawn.

Moving parts: The scene can have some movement. Say you wanted to put a flock of birds flying by in the background, that would be fine. There is no point putting in movement just for the sake of it though, if you use it, try and make it add something to your scene.

What we're looking for is for you guys to go all out on detail and atmosphere here. You are unlikely to have to worry about thermo so think about all those little touches you could put in. They will all add up to creating a 'Living Scene'.


Rules


• Create an original previously unpublished level based on one of the contest themes.

• The level should not have any gameplay (except walking a very short distance to reach the scene).

• One fixed camera showing the entire scene

• All entries must be playable in either LittleBigPlanet 2 OR LittleBigPlanet Vita.

• You can only enter one level. This means you must choose to enter either an LBP2 or a Vita entry NOT BOTH.

• Publish your levels by 11.55 pm GMT on Sunday November 17th and include the text “(LBPC Eye Candy)” in the title of the level

• Post LBP.me links to your levels in this thread, so we’re sure not to miss them!

• You can only submit one entry.

• 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, 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.

• Last but not least, have fun, play fair and respect other creators, LBPC members, Judges and Staff! (Contestants banned from LBPC at any time during the period of the contest are automatically disqualified from it)



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 during the publishing window as many times as you like, but mustn't republish 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.

I have two questions:

1. What do you mean by silhouette?

2. Do biomes (scientific word for environments) count under nature?

I can figure that this contest is to get people into trying the 3-D glitch. If that's so, I'm on it!

shropshirelass
11-03-2013, 10:33 AM
Hey Apple :)


An entry depicting a biome would be fine.

By silhouette we mean an entry using silhouettes in the style of levels like this one from thespacemonkey187.

The contest isn't just about using the 3D glitch. Any kind of visuals would count, even something made using stickers.

I'm loving this idea. For someone who is currently really really short on time due to school, this is perfect.

Btw, any reason why there hasn't been a crown contest in a while? Usually when one contest ends another begins, yet the last one seems to have been the Tearaway contest over a month ago.

Expect an entry from me! I will have a lot of fun with this, especially because it gives us more room for creativity. Before, I would never finish a contest entry because I couldn't do what I wanted. It was always against the rules. Now I can enter because this contest is a lot broader. Good luck to everyone who enters! :3

I have a question: can the 20 x 40 rectangle be vertical or must it be horizontal?

theIronHorse
11-03-2013, 07:34 PM
One more question, if say, we want a car to drive across the scene, but we want it to come from "outside" said environment, is it okay if we emit it outside the 20x40 box, and only when it is inside the display does it actually count as part of the entry?

EDIT: Also, the rules say an unpublished level- if I have a project that I haven't officially published as a level, and only have it published so I can set up the linking and keep it safe in-case I need to undo a major element, can I use that? because I have something that would fit perfectly but it's in that exact situation. :X

Question: Could we maybe make a story out of the scene?

Bryan_Zuckerberg

A definite entry for me... hopefully! :p I wish good luck to all those who will be participating and to the judges who will most likely be overwhelmed by the amount of entries that they receive! :D

Hmm very interesting, cant wait to see the submissions :D


so let me get this straight, you want a "screen saver" and not a movie scene where u have to sit there will cars zoom in a little boy walks in and loses his balloons and then yada yada yada it turns into a silent film and not a persay a screen shot? Aim for static and not a dynamic 20 x 40?

thespacemonkey187
11-03-2013, 09:01 PM
Okay guys, we have a slight rule change. Upon closer inspection 40x20 is actually not as big as we thought it would be. The last thing we want to do is limit creativity by forcing you to contain it in a small(ish) area.
So we are going to remove the 40x20 rule and are now just asking you to use 1 fixed camera instead.

Apologies for any confusion caused!

You've got it. We don't want to sit through movies or stage plays. It's all about the visuals and atmosphere of the scene you've created. It can have movement, but try to make it mean something. I've found that 'subtle' often has the best effects. http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/images/smilies/1/smile.gif


Question: Could we maybe make a story out of the scene?

I guess you could but it's not really what we're after. Focus on the scene itself, and let it inspire our imagination to come up with any possible stories that the world you've built may contain. Hope that made sense? http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/images/smilies/1/smile.gif

if say, we want a car to drive across the scene,

Yeah, a car, sure.;)

About the no gameplay restriction, what exactly constitutes gameplay? Can the player walk around the scene? If so, can the scene have, say, next gen fish AI that makes the fish move out of the way of the player?:p

Assume that we won't be touching the controller at all - just looking and enjoying the scenery ;)

Like Pookachoo said, assume we won't be touching the controllers at all. As for cameras, you can use either. Personally I would have thought that a movie camera would be the way to go but it is completely up to you.

KomodoBrothers

So is it okay if we have a few steps before the scene, like a little intro that says the title of our scene and "LBPC Eye Candy"? Or does the entrance/checkpoint HAVE to be in the middle of the scene?

That sounds fine to me - in fact anything else would be too messy! But I will check with the rest of the Crew and let you know if I'm wrong! *kicks self for trying to answer technical questions when she's no way qualified to do it*

I've added to the OP, clarifying what we mean by no gameplay and pointing out a few ways you can achieve this. Personally I think making a Cutscene is the simplest solution, but if you don't want to use a Movie Camera that's fine too.

A level without gameplay: You are allowed to have the player spawn and then walk a short distance to reach the scene, however this should be very simple and we will only judge the fixed camera scene.
Also, the player can automatically enter a Controllinator seat. This can be made invisible if you don't want the player to be seen at all.
Or, you can make the level a Cutscene. This way the player won't even spawn.

There, didnt expect a level from me I bet. (I didnt at least XD)

Theme: Water... Or... Space.. I just took my artistic freedom and combined the two and created an underwater nebula.

Gameplay wise.. you can move a spacesub around, but thats it.
If you do consider moving a spacesub around as gameplay, tell me and ill delete it.

Can the scene change mid level (EXAMPLE: a building replaces another)

The rules state "one fixed angle". Does this mean that we are not allowed to begin from say... a zoomed-in portion of our scene that will slowly pan out to reveal the entire scene we create?

So many cool levels, I can tell people became much much better since I left.
back then I knew almost anybody who made nice visuals, now.. So many new faces and so many epic rooms!

I renamed my level to "Aquatic Nebula" btw,
removed control of the ship and r2 Bomb since I had pm's etc of people complaining about it.
(instead of just warning me they would go "You suck and should be qualified")
and added some little details.

You just have to create a scene within 1 fixed camera. Anything within that sight is going to be judged. Hope that clears it up!

Forgive my lack of LBP terminology, so we're allowed to zoom out of the camera (to make the scene bigger) or no?

And are we allowed to combine themes? Like say Fantasy and Historical?

You can set the camera zoom anywhere you want, but it must stay in one position - meaning you cannot change the camera zoom during the level.
Sure, you can combine themes - most historical knowledge is based a little bit on fantasy anyway ;)

I can't believe the great amount of entries and competition that is going on here! I truly have to work even harder than I planned to although *Puts on Competitive Stance* I truly only see one level that is of serious competetion against me! :hrmf: Good luck to everyone who has/will enter!

By the way, I assume that popularity will not be playing a part in this? Judges? It would not be fair for the decision to come down based on membership longevity, hearts/plays amount, etc., right? Anyways, good luck on making your final decisions! :)

What do you do if the account you posted your entry on has been banned?

As stated in the OP:

Contestants banned from LBPC at any time during the period of the contest are automatically disqualified from it
If your PSN acct its banned, check to see when the ban ends. If it ends soon there would be time to publish and entry.



By the way, I assume that popularity will not be playing a part in this? Judges? It would not be fair for the decision to come down based on membership longevity, hearts/plays amount, etc., right? Anyways, good luck on making your final decisions! :)

We don't consider hearts, yays, etc when deciding a winner. As I mentioned above, you must be a member her at LBPC but it does't matter for how long.

Sorry Pooka but just to clarify, you don't have to be a member here to enter the contest (although it's always nice to have new people join!). But if you are a member and you get banned by the mods, then that would exclude you from the contest too. Hope that makes sense!

just wanting to post my entry here for the eye candy contest:)

http://littlesigplanet.com/v/qpd8vct/popit_funkian/full/sig.png (http://lbp.me/v/qpd8vct)

I'm just so happy to be finally able to use this snow:)
Me and SpankyDuckButter made it when the muppetpack came out
But because of thermo I couldn't use it in a level (it fills half the thermo in just this little bit of eye candy)

But it was the music from DokterVintij that inspired me to make it:)

couldn't have done it without these 2

Just sit back and enjoy the view, looking through the window, getting snowed in:)


Best of luck to all contestants

Have a nice day:)

Here's my entry! :p

http://lbp.me/v/qpdgn4k

I made my main camera that overlooks my scene "rumble" or "shake" occasionally. Does that still count as a "fixed camera" and is considered acceptable? Also, I have additional cameras prior to my main "fixed camera" that overlooks my scene. I know those camera angles won't be judged but is it breaking the rules?

I can always go back and change anything...Thaaaaanks!

I think I am speaking for everyone in the Contest Crew, when I say that we're really glad that SO many creators have chosen to participate in this contest. The idea seemed too simple in the start, but that was exactly what the creators needed. Thank you for the support, it has been a pleasure to host this contest with so many involved creators. This contest and all these awesome comments and replies really defines the spirit of play, create, share!

I'm not the most qualified to be answering your qusetions here, but I would suggest you reconsider your entry a bit since the level calls for a scene and not a movie, as I feel that you are getting the wrong idea. In any case, I would say that you probably could have some dialogue for your characters as long as they are in your scene and the overall focus of your scene and entry is based on what is around the characters. :)

This was a great idea for a contest and I've seen a ton of incredible stuff posted! Good luck to everyone.

Below are a couple of build shots from my entry. You’ll have to play it to see how it ended up...
A playable version of CHUG should be ready in December.

I can't really make one incredibly detailed entry in one night, but I will see if I can do something just for fun. Hopefully I'll get my entry published in less than a day then! :D

Ignore my last lbpc eye candy level, I published a new one which you can find here:

No screenshot, it would ruin it.

Woohoo! Not long again folks, I'm starting queuing up 165 levels! :p

REMEMBER: Publish your entry UNLOCKED and please leave the LBP.me link in this thread!!** If you want to make sure we don't miss them. We will however search for missing entries in-game. This is the easiest way!

Also: To those creators which entry is on a "LBPC Eye Candy" list don't bother, it doens't mean that you're favorited. It simply means that your level is on a queue list. Those who aren't on this list (Most of the entires aren't) are STILL going to be played and judged.

We don't want any misunderstandings, would we now? :p

Wow! That would have made a fantastic entry, but I know what it feels like to have so much pressure on finishing something that you can't because of other demanding thing... my time was PLCC4. Anyways, you should work that out into a level or something! :)

Hehe, I almost feel like the Contest Crew breathes a sigh a relief every time they know there is one level less that they'll have to play, I'll have to blog about this and my own experience soon! :D

I heard that LBPC2 had 151, which holds the record of the most level entries in a contest. I'm not a member of the crew, but I can say that this is a record breaker.

• 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, 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.


It may be that LBPCC2 will still hold the record, as numerous Eye Candy entries will be disqualified, according to the above quoted ruling established by the Contest Crew, for being published after the deadline and for not posting a repub request in this thread. We will probably be at approximately 150 levels, but may get lucky. :)

Pookachoo
11-19-2013, 01:11 AM
We prefer that requests to republish are posted here, but if a creator doesn't want to make that request public and simply contacts a crew member we may still allow changes - particularly if there's an issue that makes the level unplayable.
We've got rules, but really we just try to be fair and reasonable ;)

KomodoBrothers

Very accessible, because artistic value is all that goes into it. thank goodness because that's all I am good at.
I think we need a really demanding contest next time ;)

Good luck to all the entrants.
It was very fun and relaxing this time rather than the usual spiral of depression involved with me and create contests.

I spent more time playing levels, taking and uploading pics, than actually putting that montage together. Unfortunately some of the darker levels look way too dark in the screenshots.

That bloom lighting in some of the Vita levels… lush! Me no Vita - is it a lighting setting, or a material? `Looks hazier than what you can get in 2….
