    (LBPC15) THE NEW YEAR'S CHANGE

    2018 is coming, and along with it, a whole new year full of new and exciting things. And maybe even scary ones...

    We want you to create a level that incorporates a change in a character's life or environment.
    Will 2018 suddenly be full of peaceful aliens, due to a new contract Earth signed with the Galactic Federation?
    Or will 2018 be a lovely new year for a dog that now has a family?
    Or will Bob move out of his town to an unknown abandoned city full of scary ghosts?

    Whatever it is, we want to see THE CHANGE! If it’s a bad change, how did your character(s) solve the problem? If it’s a good change, what we’re things like before it happened?
    Show us in a single, story driven level. You may include cinematics if you like, but we will be judging the interactive gameplay of your level.
    The winner will receive a rare LBPC Pin and Crown!

    RULES

    • Create one original, previously unpublished level. No level links allowed.
    • Levels must be playable. Movies are allowed, but the -play- are also part of the contest.
    • Levels must be single player compatible, not a Versus level.
    • Publish your levels by 11:59pm GMT February 12, 2018, and include the text “(LBPC15)” 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 or 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).

      Copying without giving credit to the original creator is not something that should be looked lightly upon in my book, hence why I felt obligated to leave that comment out of respect to the original creator.

      Any more level links to post? Judging will begin soon


      Please keep discussions about each other’s levels elsewhere, this thread isn’t really the place for giving critiques.

      I'm rescinding my entry, good luck everyone else.

      @blacksackman: I've put some thought into it and I really should credit mpggsmpggs for that idea.

      Hi MofoSuperVillain, thats a pity, but its naturally your decision that we have to accept!
      ...I will play your level nevertheless even if its not an official entry anymore!
      Thanks and have a fine weekend, Jürgen^^

Also I'm aware I could have easily changed the description. I've actually got three other levels that use the same mechanic and I have gone back and given mpggsmpggs credit for the power up and switching idea.

      More than just credit issue factored into my decision to rescind my entry and delete the level.

      Okay, I respect your decision, the credit thing was no big deal but but your actions are understandable.

      CuriousSack: You got the names wrong! I have no plans on deleting my entry! I didn't spend hard work on it for nothing!

      MofoSuperVillain: Why delete your posts, you are just confusing the readers, It makes me look like I respond to nothing! So I quoted one of your old replies but I didn't have time to capture the other.

      jwwphotos told me everything I write is spam. Seriously I can't really explain why I deleted my posts without sounding crazy.

      Here's my entry guys (By me and Precipite2)
      I know it's technically too late but I hope you could still have a look at it
      I think I've improved a lot over the last couple of moths!
      It has been a great experience so far. And this has honestly become my favorite community out there. I love all of you no matter what.
      I'm probably not gonna win, but I'm happy to participate and continue to spread my message of hypothetical Omnibenevolence in my utopian dream world.
      I know the world might seem kind of bland and pointless at times, but as the wise existentialist Albert Camus once said "The literal meaning of life is whatever you're doing that prevents you from committing suicide"
      Whether or not you're a theist or atheist
      And no matter if your moral compass is based on Kantian ethics or Utilitarianism or even Nietzsches utter and ultimate nihilism
      We can all agree, that we would like to be free. Even if you're more of a determinist rather than a liberal indeterminist.
      We should all seek to create our essence including our essential properties (moral code).
      Or as Sartre put it: Stop living in bad faith! (Unwillingness to accept the absurd)

      Thank you everyone...
      I love you guys

      Apologies, but the deadline was three days ago and we cannot accept levels that were published/modified this late - it would be unfair to the other participants.

      Oh alright but yesterday you wrote
      Any more level links to post? Judging will begin soon
      so I thought you might be able to include me as there are no other levels marked with (LBPC15) that aren't included on your list of participants.

      It would mean a lot to us as we'd love to participate

      If we had failed to include a level in our list, but the level had been published on time, it would still be eligible.
      Sometimes the LBP search is not 100% reliable and that’s why we ask that everyone post level links.

      We certainly don’t wish to exclude you, it’s just that 3 days is a quite a bit of extra time which other creators did not have. We need to be somewhat strict about the rules in the interest of fairness to all the participants.

      Honestly, I don't see why we can't be included when the judging process hasn't even started yet but Okay.
      All of that hard work for nothing, I guess

      Hopefully you at least had an enjoyable creative experience.

      The deadline was clearly stated in the rules, and all the other participants stopped working on their levels by that time. I’m sure you can sympathize with the fact that allowing just one participant to work for an extra 3 days would not be right by the other creators.
      The bottom line is that the contest crew needs to act in the interest of a fair and balanced competition, without bias.

      I am terrible at sarcasm and irony. I always feel like a idiot when it turns out to be sarcasm or irony instead of a real statement.

      Whatever, the judging already begun. The crew will play the levels and we'll announce the results when we're ready. Thanks for joining the contest.
